This Vandy team, although void of a ton of talent, is full of “belief’ from their coach they can beat somebody. Richt better put the hammer down on these guys. I believe Bama only had them by 7 heading toward the end of the first half AT Bama. They will HIT back also.

Can’t afford to sleepwalking through this game. Hit ‘em hard, hit ‘em often and PUT THEM Away! I’m tired of being on the edge of my seat for nearly every game….

If we don’t beat Florida this year somebody needs to sacrifice a chicken and bury it under an oak tree by the light of a full moon….or something.

robinwood, thats what happens whenever you have a vastly superior talent-wise, poorly coached team…all these richt lovers find that acceptable…

SC is heavy favortie. Gators are 2nd most likely since they always beat Richt. UGA is 3rd most likely in SEC East.

Look for UGA to lose to all the good teams left, Auburn, Florida, Tech.

In a year that the East has never been so weak…..it would be embarrassing to fail to win it. That said, it’s just not smart to look ahead. Ga has failed to put 4 qtrs together this season, has keep much inferior teams in the game til late…… I think it is better to think about just putting together 1 full game and let the season take care of itself.

Its now or never for Tavaris KIng to have a breakout game. He has been open for the longball but Murray has missed him.. Young receivers really need to step up…Need a second string back to dominate . Carlton Thomas has done well…5-2 after saturday????

Why would Georgia not be. They dont play any of the top 5 SEC teams from here out! Good Lord Kansas would win the East with that schedule.

That being said Georgia doesnt beat UT and UF in the same season. That is the history of uga. I see the “Homers” losing at least 2 more. Tech , UF and Auburn.

When do guys think Murray will finally get his first big win, it’s been 16 games now, and he has still not won a game against a ranked team, or even a team that ended up with a winning record. What’s up?

We`re going down, Bad, Vanderbilt puts the hammer to all of us delusional dawgs.

Lord it is going to be ugly. What a beatdown.

Richt will be throwing his purse at the ref`s by halftime.

Murray is ranked 87th in sacks allowed, 90th in interceptions thrown, 118th in red zone accuracy, and is 0-9 vs. ranked teams.

“Richt hasn’t beat a ranked team since 2008.”

False. He beat #7 Georgia Tech on Nov. 28, 2009.

“When do guys think Murray will finally get his first big win, it’s been 16 games now, and he has still not won a game against a ranked team”

Murray has not played 16 games against ranked teams.

Richt’s won 1 game in the last 3 years against a ranked team. That stinks.

“and is 0-9 vs. ranked teams.”

Murray has lost 9 games total in his career. Colorado, Mississippi State and Florida were all unranked when Georgia lost to them last year.

It would help your credibility if you didn’t just make stuff up.

Murray’s good at beating the cupcake teams, just can’t ever get a win against a ranked team, he caves under pressure.

This is a message to Mike Bobo. Score and score often in the first half then get your starters out! Don’t go vanilla and let Grantham win the game. Do what your paid to do and that’s score points. Get IC, Murray out of the game by 3rd quarter please!

Murray gives up too many sacks, throws too many interceptions, can’t hit anyone in the red zone, misses on deep balls, and loses to every ranekd team he plays.

Does ok against teams like Vanderbilt, against teams like SC, throws 3 interceptions, 3 int’s against UF, 2 int’s against UCF.

Murray’s trying to set indidividual records by padding his stats against all these unranked teams.

But the TEAM RECORD:
0 WINS AGAINST RANKED TEAMS IN 2 SEASONS.

I’m just trying to help others see Murray for who he REALLY is, a guy who can’t beat a ranked team.

In time you will learn to bow to the gods of the East. Just sit there in your mommys chair, drink your hot chocolate, that your mommy made for you, then scream to her,” YO MA, THE MEATLOAF, WHERES THE MEATLOAF”!

OK. With 12 posts in 19 minutes, I think you can stop now.

This game scares the crap out of me.

The stadium is a boring dump with no energy.

If this was a noon kick off, 11 am CST, the game would worry me even more.

Hopefully, the night lights will energize the Dawgs.

Vandy’s D is capable of making this interesting

The overthrows are kind of funny now, the guy can’t hit a wide open receiver in stride if his career depnded on it. Luckily, Richt will continue to start him, no matter how bad Murray does because he’s a FAVORITE.

I’m most concerned with AM only being “good enough” but not great. In the meantime, we’re dangerously close to losing Hutson Mason due to our coaches’ lack of being ballsy znd throwing out convention when it comes to seniority vs true competition at EVERY position.

King Tony- Murray may have went 6-7 w/ Greene & Durham, but AJ missed 4 games do to suspension. So, it’s not like he even really had Greene for the whole season, remember? Oh, & I believe Durham had some injuries & had to miss some time as well. People say every week that UGA is going to lose & they haven’t the last 4 wks. Then when they win everyone says the teams they beat just aren’t any good. At least they’re beating who they’re supposed to beat, which is more than they did last yr. The defense & running game are much better this yr. I know they haven’t put together a complete game yet, but they usually start the season slow, & play better later in the yr. I believe they have a chance to put it together & have a pretty good team.

Murray had more scholarship offers than Mason, so even though he’s 0-9 vs. winning teams, Richt thinks Murray’s great.

KingTony

Thaty’;s a myth. Murray was winless vs. rankwed teams with or without Green starting last year. Green wasn’t the issue.

There is no one out of the east that can handle either LSU or BAMA as florida,tennesse uga or caroline are not capable of making a decent game with their western sec brothers.

I don’t believe Texas has beaten a ranked team in a while either so every team goes through cycles. I personally like what I see from this UGA team. At the beginning of the year I said I wanted to see the team improve each week, win or lose, and I believe the improvement has been there. Will UGA win out, who knows? I do believe the effort will be there and that is all one can ask for!
