SEC discipline likely forthcoming for Georgia, Vandy players, coaches

ATHENS – Georgia expects to hear back from the Southeastern Conference sometime this week regarding possible disciplinary action against coaches and players in the wake of last Saturday’s game against Vanderbilt.

UGA and Vanderbilt were each asked to submit reports about the post-game skirmish that took place following the Bulldogs’ 33-28 win over the Commodores. After the game concluded, Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin and Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham ended up in a shouting match at midfield. Both coaches could be subject to fines, suspensions and/or reprimands from SEC Commissioner Mike Slive for showing a lack of sportsmanship with their finger-pointing, obscenity-laced exchange.

Meanwhile, there is a very good chance discipline could be forthcoming for players based on their actions during the game. Georgia noseguard Kwame Geathers was flagged for a personal foul for punching Vanderbilt center Logan Stewart at the end of of the Commodores’ second offensive play of the fourth quarter. Geathers’ punch was retaliation for a late-hit by Stewart in which he intentionally clips the back of Geathers’ left knee, an extremely dangerous angle that could have resulted in serious injury. Stewart was flagged for clipping on the play and could be disciplined for the hit.

Georgia senior center Ben Jones was flagged for a similar penalty in the 2010 Mississippi State game and was suspended for the first half of the Bulldogs’ next game against Colorado. Georgia’s next game this year is against Florida in Jacksonville on Oct. 29.

“We’re not sure what’s going to happen,” Georgia Athletic Director Greg McGarity said Tuesday. “We’re at the mercy of the SEC. We don’t know if anything is imminent or not. Our only experience is with Ben Jones last year.”

Jones’ discipline was not announced last season until right around kickoff of the Colorado game. At the time it was stated that both Georgia coach Mark Richt and Slive had reviewed tape of the Mississippi State game and agreed that a one-half suspension was warranted.

Here’s the release UGA sent out that day:

University of Georgia center Ben Jones will sit out the first half of the Saturday game against Colorado as a result of a late clipping penalty he incurred in the closing minutes of last week’s game at Mississippi State.

UGA head coach Mark Richt and SEC Commissioner Mike Slive both reviewed game tapes and conferred during this past week. Both agreed the half game suspension was in order.

“It was poor judgment on Ben’s part,” said Richt. “He feels very badly about the incident and has sent a note of apology to the Mississippi State player. I have talked with (Mississippi State Coach) Dan Mullen and he appreciated the concern and Ben’s apology.”

Meanwhile, McGarity does not believe Georgia is an undisciplined team. He pointed out that the Bulldogs entered last Saturday’s game as the SEC’s fourth-least penalized teams. Georgia has been flagged for five personal fouls in seven games this season and all have come in the last two games, two against Tennessee and three against Vanderbilt.

“That’s not a reflection of our team this year,” McGarity said. “The Vanderbilt game hopefully was an aberration. We had a bad second half against Tennessee and lost our composure against Vanderbilt.”

Look at what Slive let Nick Fairley get away with last year against UGA:

Slive overlooked it because Auburn was making the SEC look good.

This year Georgia is the best in the SEC East, and attracting the most attention for the SEC East.

Will Slive be dumb enough to cut off his own foot?

Everybody is making such a big deal about Grantham but I can see the Conference coming down on the players harder than the coaches. Late hits, hits below the knees and punching shouldn’t be tolerated. While I would rather CTG display behavior more becoming of an adult, the exchange with Franklin to me is WAY overblown. Two coaches following a hard fought game cussing and yelling at each other. Big freakin’ deal!

They thing that has bugged me is the over attention to Grantham and the lack of attention on Franklin by most. He admits he tried to find Coach Richt but couldn’t so he took matters into his own hands. That clearly involved running his mouth to a college player he was not responsible for. Grantham overreacted, but Franklin was the instigator here. He should have just gotten his players off the field and then called Coach Richt about it later. Grantham should have done the same. Both were at fault here and it would be nice for other writers and media people to make this claim as well.

If the SEC punishes anyone it should be Franklin and Stewart.

I just hope the SEC, unlike the AJC and media at large, will acknowledge Franklin was out of line for pointing and yelling at Georgia players and provoking Grantham. Franklin has played this thing up and blown it out of proportion in an effort garner media attention and make a name for himself. Not once in any of his statements has Franklin apologized or acknowledged he instigated the incident or did anything wrong. He has played the poor pitiful little victim the whole time and played the media like a fiddle.

I am sick of this story which has been one sided and anti UGA from the start.

You can perform a crack back block and possibly blow a player’s knee out and not get suspended but you can’t punch a player who has a helmet on without getting suspended.

The key word here is “retaliate”. Geathers got clipped from the back, low, and retaliated. Coach Franklin jumped on Shawn Williams after the game. Grantham retaliated. Notice, VANDY started all this, after a hard fought loss.

Brantley won’t be back for that game. I highly doubt that Demps will be either. It’s a high-ankle sprain on a QB’s post leg. That injury takes a minimum of 5 weeks to heal, and even if it does, it is extremely nagging. I hope they do try to put Brantley in, b/c he won’t be able to step up in the pocket or throw over his off shoulder.

Beginning to think that people are right about Frankling being Kiffin Light.

Slive suspended Jones for 1/2 of the Colorado game. A game that did not affect the SEC at all (aside from the embarrasment we brought on the SEC by losing–that is.)

I think the penalties being handed down will be determined by whether or not Slive thinks UGA is a threat to LSU or Bama in the SEC Championship game. I don’t think we are and nobody thinks USC is without Lattimore–but maybe Slive will think Florida is with a healthy Brantley.

If Slive thinks healthy Brantley might beat an undefeated team in the SEC Championship–no suspension for Geathers.

If Slive thinks UGA is more of a threat than Florida–full game suspension for Geathers.

No matter which team from the east goes to the dome…they will be playing 11 vs 30 (that is: the other 11, 5 refs, and Mike Slive–who counts as 14 players when he doesn’t want you to win).

Nobody–and I mean nobody–is going to mess up a chance for another SEC National Championship!

It doesn’t matter what Frankilin did. Grantham is an out of control embarrassment. He acts and talks like a middle schooler. He laces his comments with profanity as the team goes off the field during home games in front of lots of youngsters in the east end zone. This is twice he’s embarrassed the program on TV.

If Coach Franklin wanted to talk to Coach Richt after the game what was he doing at the hash marks on the 40 in the middle of the UGA players? If he had gone to mid field and had confronted Coach Richt and said what he did about our players what would Richt have done? What would MaGarity have done? Shake their hands? I hope not. Franklin got what he wanted but a little bit more when he confonted Coach Grantham. Thanks Coach Grantham.

Can’t blame Kwame for retaliation for a side knee cut that could have ended his year,after play basically over. Just wish he could have been a little more discreet with it.

Think Franklin and Grantham get warnings if another incident rest of year, big fine.

Attention needs to be on Gaaytors. Good to have Tree back in the middle, after watching 35 and 45 whiffing 3 or 4 times as the Vandy QB ran by them.

Hopefully nothing will happen to our team , players or coaches but if this doesn’t motivate our defense to play hard for 60 minutes against Florida nothing will. A coach that stick’s up for his player’s unconditionally has my respect and admiration . After reviewing film if our players were doing something wrong then you take it up with them then but Grantham did exactly what a real man would do in that situation. This is FOOTBALL NOT GYMNASTICS.

Tech’s offense, through its use of misdirection, incorporates a strategy of distracting the referees so that it can hold defensive players illegally. That is why you see so many running plays of over ten yards so far this year. The ACC refs have discussed it at length, and they began cracking down on it in last week’s game at UVA. Tech is likely to win two or three more games for the rest of the year. They will have holding penalties on at least six plays against Miami.

How does Vandy come away looking so victimized? They play a great game (for them) and had plenty of late hits and no-calls. Yet it gets portrayed as though the center that clipped Geathers was the only indiscretion. What a load! While Williams did have a bad late hit on the WR, his 2nd was retaliation for #38 (9?) who went after a Dawg. The PF flag? OK. Discipline after the fact? The SEC should inform the coaches to handle and get out of the d@mn way.

Did not say that the score was comparable on any game but margin of victory for LSU-MSU and UGA-MSU
That said, this is more of what I was refering to, Hawk:
ole miss vs uga rushing 207 passing 268 defensive rushing-14 passing-149

ole miss vs ala rushing 389 passing 224 defensive rushing-38 passing-113

while alabama is clearly a better team running the football (btw mr. heisman and lacy and fowler) both teams showed a balanced offense and a dominating defense. Richt is more pass-oriented to keep his game even, and is unsufferably conservative. However, Alabama showed the only way to be any more dominant than we were in that game, and yet we got zero respect.

Not too impressed with UGA this year – nor Florida for that matter.

However, Florida will win the SEC EAST:

Here is how:
Florida wins out – finishes SEC with 5-3 (beating UGA and USCe)
UGA gets beat by Auburn and Florida – finishing 5-3
USCe will lose to Arkansas and FLORIDA – finishing 5-3

Florida wins head to head against UGA and USCe.

UGA will finish the season – 8-4
Richt will return for 2012 – and will be improved next year.
2012 – SEC EAST will be a 2 horse race – FLORIDA and UGA.

Last week the NCAA said they found no, repeat in case you don’t understand this, NO evidence whatsoever that Auburn paid anybody anything or even came close to doing ANYTHING wrong last year. Get the hell over it, you whiny little nincompoop! It’s over,over,OVER!!! If you’ve got any information to the contrary other than what the other bubbas tell you at the local watering hole then tell it to the NCAA.

@sogadog — you are so right once again.
@Roll Tide — go suck a War Eagle.

All I want to come out of this thing is for James Franklin to be held accountable for his pathetic actions as HEAD COACH of an SEC football team. Todd Grantham, a DC two years removed from the NFL, has taken responsibility for his actions. James Franklin has not. I don’t know what he said and I don’t even know what all went on during the game. I do know that he was NOT searching for Mark Richt when he encountered Todd Grantham. He was chasing down a Georgia player. Anyone who posts on these blogs that cannot admit to that fact is either delusional, just wants to use this opportunity to trash Georgia/CMR, or both. God bless Coach Richt. God bless georgia. Go Dawgs !!

The latest ugly incident concerning georgia is just more proof the SEC needs to move towards some more conference realignment. Between threatening to choke opposing players, starting fights after games like last week, and cheap shots, teams like georgia hurt the integrity of the SEC. We will be taking care of the choking incident ourselves next week, a few dogs will be carried off the field instead of walking, but georgia does not belong with the honarable programs like Florida, Alabama, LSU and the others. The SEC needs to take out its trash, georgia needs to go

ADMan – “Wouldn’t know a good coach from a bad one”? Look at your coach’s record compared to ours, the answer should be pretty clear. I like how you uga fans compensate for having a terrible football team for the last couple of years, by assuming every fan of another SEC team is some wal-mart working redneck who weighs 300lbs. After graduating from Bama, I went to Vanderbilt for grad school. I’ve meet plenty of inbred uga fans living in Atlanta, so I wouldn’t get to high on your fan base if I was you. Looking forward to kicking y’alls a$$ in Atlanta this year (if you can beat UF for the 3rd time in 16 yrs).

Unfortunately, your argument may be the reason a UGA player (and Vandy player) does get suspended. What I mean by that is last year Auburn was rolling toward a run at the NC and Slive did not want to hinder that. UGA, while a favorite to win the SEC East, is not in the hunt for a NC so Slive can have the image of coming down hard to “uphold the integrity of the SEC”, but in reality he’s just managing the eventual SEC cash flow.

James Franklin lied to Coach Richt about the impetus for his actions. It’s clear that he was going after one specific player, and it had nothing to do with the Dawgs’ postgame behavior. How could they already be “rubbing (the Commodores’) face in it” when the game had ended seconds before?

And Franklin wasn’t through with his nonsense. After the game he said he is pretty sure of what his actions will be because he plans them out, then says he gets emotional. Obviously this was planned by Franklin, as he himself asserted. I hope the Commissioner’s Office listens to his immediate comments to the media before they make their decisions, but I doubt UGA will get any benefit of doubt…

Franklin is playing this whole thing masterfully but what the Vanderbilt people don’t realize is that they are the ones being used. He knows darn well he (nor anyone) will ever win consistently there. This is just “resume padding” on his part: Make Vandy look tough, get things heading in what appears to be the right direction and bolt for greener pastures before the air starts to escape from the balloon.

Vandy loves him right now but when he gets through using them for a bigger paycheck they’ll hate him like UT hates Kiffin. Remember this post and mark my words.

So the team is not undisciplined McGarity? What about all the classless trash talking and the taunting of opposing players. It’s been going on for years under Richt. No wonder Crowell, after his very first good gain, felt free to promptly taunt the closest opposing player. He should have been sat down right then. The complete body of work plus this latest stuff provides factual evidence that Georgia fields undiscipline, classless teams. And that, my friend, can’t be neutralized by your words to the contrary.

The SEC should declare Georgia an emabarassment to the SEC and to the NCAA for lack of class and lack of a general sense of decency. They are a black eye on the sport of football at any level for squandering exceptional talent and resources and therefore should be banned from participation. That is all.

Asked if he had any regrets about his conduct at the end of the game, Franklin said: “I’m not a guy that really has a whole lot of regrets. I’m pretty calculated, and I’m pretty well thought out with the things I do for the most part. I am an emotional guy, as you guys know.”

So, if he is as calculated as he states, then what happened on the field after the game was by design to get just the sort of attention that this rag of a newspaper is giving him. Nothing like free publicity to help with your recruiting efforts. Helicopter James (aka known as little lame kitten) then uses the “I am innocent” routine and you doucebags buy it.

Demps will be back for the Georgia game and at 100 percent.

Powell will be back, too.

Florida will definitely be a different offensive team with Brantley and Demps playing, for sure. Still, I would think Georgia will be a slight favorite in the game either way.

Also – wanted to point this out, if someone didn’t already (I didn’t read all 4 pages of blog):
Our D is set to be it’s healthiest and deepest since – well since I don’t remember… Jarvis, Ogletree, Cornelious and Christian will ALL be playing – Vasser, Herrerra, Gilliard and Ray Drew have all gotten experience and will be backing up. That’s TWO DEEP at LB – and their all healthy!
The Secondary – for 3-4 years, we complained about getting burned deep often. The Brandens and Rambo/Williams/Commings haven’t allowed it all season.
D-Line is playing fantastic – Nose is rock solid and Abry, Deangelo and Garrison are really coming on hard.

The D will be ready – to me – the Florida game comes down to 3 important keys

1. Will anyone on our O-Line besides Ben Jones and Kiante be able to provide a push against the Gator’s front 4
2. Will Blair Walsh get over his ‘yips’ and have a clutch game
3. Will Bobo call a game that utilizes our weapons against a fast, but sloppy Florida D.

The 3rd one is what worries me the most.

I would hate to be in Muschamp’s shoes there. I tore my ankle up playing footbal and, despite taping it up so much I could barely get my cleat on and (stupidly) lying about my condition, there was no way I was ready to go in 3-4 weeks. Sports medicine has improved a lot since then but, thankfully, my coach didn’t fall for it. Hopefully all coaches are as astute and disciplined and will listen to their medical staff.

Franklin instigated this whole thing in an effort to inject some testosterone into the Vandy football program. The Commodes played dirty, talked trash and then their douchebag head coach went out of his way to craft the post-game narrative. And, naturally, the media has decided not to question anything Franklin has said. Franklin and the Commodes are innocent victims in all this? Please! Now the question is whether or not Slive will play favorites (again) or not.

No idea what was said on the field, but one thing is certain – Franklin did NOT point at anyone on the field. If you look at the video, it is very clearly the SECURITY GUARD with Franklin who points. Again, other things were said and done, but Franklin did not do the pointing.

Dawginatruck-
High ankle sprains are one of the worst injuries that don’t involve a break, tear, or some type of brain trauma. It affects the muscles BETWEEN the tibia and the fibia in your lower leg. Those muscles require both torque (from ankle rotation) and trauma (from the impact of motion). If you watch that hit from Upshaw, the way his ankle bends back underneath him is gruesome. He is very fortunate not to have broken his leg or torn an anterior ligament. That said, once you have been “cleared” at 80%, that is one of those crucial pieces that a QB needs. The same reason that Bray can’t play with “just” a broken thumb. It’s his right foot, and he’s right handed, meaning that the injured foot is his post foot. Think about the pain of planting, driving, twisting, cutting, and throwing to the left or with pocket movement in that kind of situation. Brantley will not play this game, and if he does, he will regret it.

The SEC front office might very well protect Vandy. The SEC needs Vandy to protect its image. The presence of Vandy and Florida (because the rest of the country doesn’t see Florida as the south) holds back that “good at football but otherwise just a bunch of rednecks” label on the SEC.

I think Franklin is the instigator in the situation when you consider he was pointing at a player and talking to him after the game.

I DISAGREE WITH EVERYTHING TOWARD DISCIPLINE. GEORGIA IS ONE OF THE MORE SCRUTINIZED TEAMS IN THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL REALM. GEORGIA GETS BEAT UP AND HIT ABUNDANTLY WITH NO CONSEQUENCE TO ANY TEAM. IF ANYTHING, REFEREES SHOULD BE DISCIPLINED FOR NOT PENALIZING ENOUGH TO FLAGRANT FOULS. ALL OF OUR PROBLEMS HAVE COME FROM LACK OF PENALIZING AND NOTHING BEING DONE.

2)Charlie Wies is not, and never has been, capable of handling a backseat. He has also never won on a CFB level competing against competition like he’s facing in the SEC.
3)Dan Quinn is a paperweight on that coaching staff.
4)RBs lack size and strength for a pro-style offense.
5)QB attrition/ineptitude/lack of experience
6)Entitled opinions and overblown egos that have been since, crushed.
7)Overrated preseason predictions
8)Special Teams (yeah, I know we suck at that too)

What a mess. A war of words with the likes of Vanderbilt. Why can’t our guys just get outta there after we win the game and go home with the “W”. The last few years have seen either their guys stomping on our logo on the 50 or vice-versa. Now this. For crying out loud it’s Vandy here. We should be ashamed that we can’t blow these guys out like the other premiere SEC programs. It’s almost a show of respect by “rubbing it in their faces” instead of just getting the hell outta there with a narrow victory. I love the fact that CTG took up for his player because the players love that their coach has their back. No matter what. CMR is gonna have to let everyone know that he has his assistants’ and players’ backs instead of apologizing before he sees film of what happened too. I love his class but he took the Vandy coach’s word before he even spoke with any of his own guys first. Not good at all.

I will say this, neither CTG nor Franklin issued any sort of apology to one another. This is not taking ownership for the individual responsiblity in the incident. F8ck Franklin for being such a p^ssy about the whole thing. If he was really interested in burying the hatchet, he would have obliged a statement to the effect, “and I apologize to Coach Grantham for any indications he may have had that I was going after one of his players, I simply (fill in his reason)” Instead what we get is a bald-faced lie about him looking to shake Richt’s hand as he’s barreling down the hash at the 40 right on Shawn Williams. By the same token Grantham should have the humility and integrity to say something to the effect of “I thought I was handling an issue where my players needed support. Instead, I embarrassed myself and I would like to personally offer my apology to Coach Franklin” (while thinking in his head) “apologize for giving you so much free press coverage for a never-was program”

Just watched the video again on you tube. First there was no dancing or celebration on the Vandy “Star”. This whole incident happened on the 35 to 30 yard line. Franklin was not looking for Richt and his security guard was not pointing Richt out. Security might have thought another coach was Richt wince they were both wearing tan pants with red windbreakers. Richt was down on the 30 yard line closer to the 25. Grantham had to turnaround to see who Franklin was yelling at. Williams dismissed Franklin and that probably peed him off. We do not know, and probably never will, what was actually said to make Grantham so mad.

Franklin needs to learn not to start a fight because someone else may finish it for him. To me this is much to do about nothing. Glad Grantham had his players backs.

The real concern of the SEC should be the intentional attempt by a player to do harm. Geathers is clearly and NFL prospect with a pedigree and that hit could have cost him millions. Replay shows it was intentional. If defending yourself from an literal intentional assault is wrong than the SEC executive board has no sense of justice. The whole post game incident could have been an attempt to distract attention from that hit and the established consequences thereof. Franklin has admitted on numerous occasision his intent to not take sh%t from anyone. Based upon his own admission, he instigated the entire incident. Grantham was minding his own business and clearly was startled by what he heard. There apparently is no rule on post game conduct. But if there was it would start with no coach should ever ever attempt to discipline the other teams players. Try doing that to someone elses kid. The reaction you get is as predictable as the sunrise. Because everything else was the forseeable consequence of his stated ghetto we’re not taking sh#t attitude he and he alone should be held responsible. ,

I am looking forward to the GA/FL game. I think that Fl will play better than they have the last few games. I also think that Ga will play better as well. Our special teams have been bad all year long while it was supposed to be one of our strengths. Blair Walsh has had his problems as well. I think he will find his groove in the Fl game and more than make up for his miss attempts previously. UGAs offense will be more creative during this game; not because of Bobo but because Richt will be heavily involved in the play-calling. Fl will play hard because they have nothing to lose. They will be ready and so shall Ga. This weekend’s incident will bode well as for as determination and will inspire this defense to play lights out football. I think that a win in this game is going to do wonders for the confidence of these young players. The defense will set the tone. Control that running game and quick screen passes and protect the corners. Those are the keys to stopping this Fl team. It would be nice to see this team realize that they can beat FL. Things are looking up at this moment. Win against FL and possibly make it to the Dome in Dec. Anything can happen in that game and the best team does not always win. Upsets happen almost on a weekly basis. Bama and LSU are outstanding teams, but no one is unbeatable; especially when they are playing in the SEC. Do not discount Ark in this whole scenario. If they beat LSU and LSU beats Bama, then things will be very interesting.

Well you obviously can’t wait to unload what’s on your mind to me, Tampa. This is a blog. I doubt I offended anyone with a comment which was obviously meant to be a light-hearted jab. How is any of that a personal attack on your coaches? Do they subscribe to the AJC blog? I doubt they would even care if they did. Either way, it wouldn’t make them any more useful to your football team. Muschamp is a good coach, and he’ll put them in the title discussion as soon as he gets the right recruits. He will also need an offensive coordnitor who isn’t so pretentious/arrogant/self-serving…CW sold you a bill of goods that his a$$ just couldn’t cash. So blind is he, and full of hubris, that he couldn’t figure out a player specific offensive set: E.G. a dual quaterback system with Driskell AND Burton in the wing using Demps and Rainey as seam/slot WR and using motion with those two and Burton to confuse overly aggressive defenses. So to speak, a Gus Malzahn approach. Also, Gilleslie was averaging more than five yds a carry last game, and he disappeared for the rest of the game. Not exactly using what’s working.

Having the commissioner possibly determing the outcome of future games on the field is just wrong for this ticky-tac kind of stuff..

“But if your florida you can try and take an eye out. what did the SEC do then?”

“What about disciplining Will Muschamp every time he opens his mouth??? Talk about “lack of sportsmanship.” Every time they show Muschamp he is railing referees with profanity.”

“nick fairley can spear a player in the back and dance around like a little #%@% and get away with it but when a minor thing like this happens the SEC craps the bed on us….sweet”

Do you whiners deflect much? Have any of you EVER accepted responsibility for anything in your lives? Grantham acted like a total moron for the second time in less than 12 months. He needs to grow up.

There is a lot of things I might not understand like why a lot of “trailer-dwellers” are up to your eyeballs in hate over CTG taking up for one of his players that was being verbally attacked by Vandy coach Franklin. CTG did NOT touch another person and neither did Franklin although Franklin initiated it. CTG did use some unsavory words but there has never, even in sandlot/pickup football games, where some discouraged participant didn’t utter a couple of profanities. I guess had the attempted “Ealey Eye Extraction” been sucessful it would not be near as bad as CTG looking out for his players. Grow a pair…… or maybe not. Your reproductions would be undesirable.

Your humble opinion is wrong. Anyone in that stadium or watching on TV saw that the State Trooper only intervened when Coach Grantham lunged at Coach Franklin. Coach Franklin didn’t even flinch. He just stood his ground.

“Bottom line, none of us know what really transpired and the SEC, Richt, Grantham, Franklin, et al are not being forthright with their stories.”

Yes, there is an obvious conspiracy to keep UGA down. The SEC is determined to do everything in its power to see that Florida beats Georgia. The reason is that so many people outside Georgia are just obsessed with keeping Bulldog Football down. They think about it all the time.

Seriously? No one outside this state gives a darn about UGA football. You have been irrelevant going on three years now. I know, because for several years Alabama was irrelevant. But we didn’t try to blame anyone else. We fired Shula and moved on.

He cannot continue to embarrass UG if he wants to stay on the staff….long term. But….this story is old now. The AJC needs to move on to the game in two weeks and report on that.

Also……Muschamp made a public apology for his obsenities directed toward the refs last Saturday. His antics on the sidelines need to be energy filled, but not obsenity lased. I hope, like Grantham, he has learned from his mistake and will behave more professionally and represent GatorNation more appropriately in the future…..same for Grantham and the U of G.

BRAINIAC….I love it!!! The people you’re talking to aren’t the trailer dwellers thought. Most of them, know what it’s like to have to fight for the people you care about. It’s intruders posing as DAWG fans trying to stir the pot. They know, the more disention they cause among DAWG fans…the better it is for their teams in the recruiting wars. Games that are to be played years down the road. We have to wise up to this tactic and start doing the same to them. Visit sites such as FLORIDA TIMES, BIRMINGHAM AND TUSCALUSA NEWS SITES, BATON ROUGE NEWS SITE, COLUMBIA NEWS SITES, TENNESSEE NEWS SITES, OKLA, TEX, CAL and so on. Blog as if you are a fan of that particlular team and are unhappy with the coaches, players, program, etc.. Be as negative as possible, mixing skewed facts with opinion. Kids that are being courted or approaching recruitment age read these sites to get a feel for the schools fan climate.

I’LL SAY IT AGAIN……THE JUNKYARD DAWGS ARE BACK. IT’S NOT THE QUALITY OF WIN OF WHO THEY BEAT THAT MATTERS. IT’S THE ATTITUDE AND DETERMINATION. The offense has been putting plenty of points on the board. The defense has been improving. They worried me in the second half Saturday, but when the chips were down. They played and played like I remember Erk Russell’s defenses playing. Don’t think for a minute they were perfect when they had Herschell playing. It was all defense and the occasional drive. They didn’t blow a lot of people out back then either.
Their best game was a tie with Clemson (a top tier team at the time). Butler kiccked a 50+ yard field goal as time expired to keep them undefeated and their Championship hopes alive. That was set up by a MUST drive to Clemson territory. with little time remaining.
The second best (arguably a tie for first) was the win against Florida with 1:12 on the clock…backed up their own 8 yard line. A different player was the player of trhe week every week. Herschell, Belue, Scott, Woerner.

THAT’S WHAT I MEAN WHEN I SAY WE’RE BACK. UGA SHOULD HAVE BEATEN SOUTH CAROLINA BUT THEY WEREN’T MATURE ENOUGH. They gave the game away. WITH THE SITUATION THE WAY IT WAS, AGAINST VANDERBILT…THAT SAME TEAM SHOULD HAVE LOST. But they STOPPED ‘EM when they had to. They’ve grown and matured in the last few weeks. That’s DAWG FOOTBALL. They are scrapping for every point. They may not win out, but by God they WILL compete.

Richt once again will bend over and take it up the a– from Slive and the SEC, and he want take up for his coach or his players. Yet all the UGA fans want this spineless wimp to continue to lead their program. It’s because of this sissy ass attitude, UGA’s program is in the pathetic state it is in. Richt and his arrogance, and his laid back, lazy ass work ethic has brought this program to it’s knees. This loser does nothing but blame his players, his coaches, and even the fans for his lack of coaching ability. Not once in his 11 years as coach, has he admitted that he and bobo called the wrong play, or that he didn’t have his team prepared to play for any big game the past 4 years. He has also never admitted that the game plan that he and his coaches prepared was pathetic, and that it never gave the team a chance to win. This guy will only say that if the players had executed, the team would have won. Or he will say if the pass wasn’t overthrown, we would have had a touchdown. What a joke this arrogant prick is, and yes i will say it again, he is a stubborn, arrogant, prick, and if you don’t believe me, just ask him. After all hasn’t he told UGA fans that he knows “What the Hell he is doing”, and that he has been doing this for 20 years? Newsflash to you arrogant loser, you and your coaches don’t have a clue what the hell you are doing, if you did, you would have beaten one team in the past 2 seasons with a winning record, and if you did, your team wouldn’t totally collapse in the second half of every game. and lastly, if you had a damn clue what you were doing, maybe UGA would have some depth at R.B, O.L, W.R, Q.B, D.L, L.B, and Safety, every damn position on the team lacks quality depth because you and your wonderful coaches know what the hell you are doing in recruiting depth also. I guess you know what you are doing this year also in recruiting when UGA only has 1 of the top 11 players in the state committed for 2012, where as Bama, Auburn, and Florida have 2 or more each committed. You coach are a joke, and it’s you that has embarrassed this school and this program many times the past 4 years, not your players or your D.C. You are a total disgrace to this program, not any of your players.

There is no way that the SEC can give Fairley a pass last year and then do anything to a player for reacting to a blatant cheap shot that could have ended his career. I think that cheap shot artist Stewart got off really easy. Geathers could have throw a dozen punches and been justified in my book. I think players HAVE to take care of themselves and their teammates on the field. My guess is Vandy got the message and didn’t cheap shot Geathers the rest of the game.

As for last year, I think UGA should have run a chop block at Fairley on the next play after his first of many cheap shots on Murray. The message should have been clear. You take a cheap shot and we will return the shot. I bet it would have put an end to the crap from Fairley before he escalated it with each “turning of the other cheek”.

I’m conflicted. On one hand I think that if UGA doesn’t dump Richt they will never be relevant in the SEC again. On the other hand, I hope you keep him for the same reason. Richt is the same coach he was 10 years ago, he hasn’t gotten worse. I am sure he is a nice guy. The problem is that the rest of the SEC has gotten better. And nice doesn’t win. Discipline, passion and commitment wins. As Coach Bryant once said “The desire to win is not what matters. The willingness to prepare to win is what matters.”

Grantham could’ve walked away, and would have, I believe, if Franklin had not been putting his finger in the UGA players’ face. I’d feel worse if Grantham had stood by and watched an opposing coach do that to his player without reacting towards it at all.

Sorry if someone else beat me to it, but McGarity’s full of it. Not a reflection of the team this year? If Georgia can’t keep its composure against Tennessee and Vanderbilt, what expectation can we reasonably have that they’ll keep it against Florida? Answer: None whatsoever. I’d bet money there will be an incident in the Florida game, and despite the five-game winning streak, this looks more and more like a program coming unglued, both with its performance and its behavior.

6. Trooper Taylor acts crazy on the sideline
5. Vandy danced on our emblem in 2005
4. Paul Johnson grabs his players facemasks
3. Will Muschamp swears on the sidelines
2. Cam Newton was paid
1. Nick Fairley is a dirty player

Yep – it’s all the fault of UF, AU, GT, Vandy, Franklin, Slive, the refs, the SEC office, Mark Richt (who is a spineless DB for not backing CTG unconditionally) – and the list goes on. The entire nation has seen a video of an out of control DC going backwards and forwards trying to get his face in front of an opponent’s HC while he yells and swears and 95% of the UGA fans on the blog think not only is there nothing wrong with that but it should be praised.

How can these players and coaches go out of state and completely embarrass us, the citizens of Georgia, in this fashion. This is deplorable. I saw the news video and it looked like something out of a combination of Jerry Springer, trash, wrestling event. And for this to take place at Vanderbilt. It looks like the hicks got to go to town for a Saturday night. How embarrassing as I have friends that live in other states that are Vanderbilt grads and they know that I don’t have a favorite team, but live in the state of Georgia. There needs to be some sort of anger management training or classes for this type of redneck, trash behavior.

Greg McGarity : “at the end of the day that’s not the way you want to end an athletic competition. … I think if you asked Todd if he had to do it over again, he would definitely do some things differently. I think that’s not the way you want to represent your institution on either side at the end of the day.”

Mark Richt : “All I know is that I hate the fact that at the end of the game we can’t just shake hands like gentlemen and walk off the field like men of integrity. It’s like at the end of a play: when the play is over it’s over, you go to the sideline. And we didn’t do a very good job of that at times. And we’ve got to mind our blood getting hot… Maybe TV will pick it up and we’ll get a better sense of what happened, but we are grown men and we all need to act that way. But we’re also competitors and we all have emotions and sometimes when you get a little bit fired up it’s hard not to keep from getting in a jawing contest.”

LOL…..the limp-wristed comments on here are hilarious. If Franklin was being honest, he would admit he was not looking for Richt to begin with. He was at the 50 yd line where ALL coaches meet after the game for the obligatory handshake.

Beyond that, you guys are sooooo easily played like fiddles by the AJC writers. They consistently take anti-UGA positions because they know the Dawg Nation will vehemently support their team. It’s easy pickin’s for them. Say something less than complimentary about the Dawgs and they are guarnteed to have a tremendous response to their article by virtue of the enormous amount of postings by UGA fans defending their coach or players.
Why do they rarely speak badly of GT, because they know that Tech fans will just stop reading their articles. UGA fans on the other hand react predictably (myself included) and raise cain about the unbalanced reporting. It’s pure genius on their part. Their editors love them for increased exposure and they don’t have to worry about journalistic integrity. Seems like they’d be well-suited for CNN or MSNBC.

A lot of the comments from Ga. supporters acted like this type of behavior was o.k. We have a lot of young people following these colleges games and more especially certain teams. Coaches and players have an obligation to behave with proper sportsmanship to influence this kids in a proper way. The men and women that play college and pro. sports have a big impact on kids lives POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE.

Nothing is going to happen to Grantham except maybe a small fine. The players are a different story. They got physical. Everybody needs to get off of the Grantham thing. Media-hype does more damage to a minor situation than the gravity of situation itself justifies. Just like firing Richt, firing Richt, all off season. They stress people out with undue and unwarranted pressure hyping stuff up that is not reality, or most probable reality. They just arent telling it like it is! They showed their ignorance and true colors then and are doing it at AJC again with this non-story that should be a side note. Schultz and Bradley are blowing it up into something major when it isnt. Perspective and intent are everything and after the off-season hype, we have seen the true colors of those two jokers. They are like used car salesmen and attorneys. Read Bradley’s column then on the side look at his recent posts and look at how many are negative, how many take a positive and look for the negative within it, state it and focus on it. It must suck to live life that way. Then share it with the world? What a legacy! Chip you are the best at AJC. You and Ledbetter. Dont know enough about the others, but you are head and shoulders above Bradley(Girlie-Man) and Schultz, Carvell and King. Schultz has a good one every once in awhile. Bradley? Few and way too far between…..

It would result in a complete bit!@#$slap in the SEC championship game with either LSU or Bama who will take no prisoners since they will be playing for a spot in the BCS NC game, and it will insure a couple more years of CMR and is imcompetent coaching staff.

This is unbelievable that this story is turning from the AJC’s version of bad dawg UGA being ugly to holier-than-thou Vanderbilt. I saw the original game replay of Gaethers, and it looked like he barely tapped the helmet of Stewart. No reaction on Stewart’s part, and you know if he really hit him all hell would have broken out. Vandy was ugly all night.

He didn’t tap his helmet. He kidney punched him with a right hook. Even a blind man could see his helmet move a foot in reaction to the kidney punch.

“The key word here is “retaliate”. Coach Franklin jumped on Shawn Williams after the game. Grantham retaliated. Notice, VANDY started all this”

So, you think you can totally ignore what Shawn Williams # 36 did in the game ? Or what Isaiah Crowell does after every run against CUPCAKES, except for this game where he was pouting about being SUSPENDED for the 1st Quarter ? What about what Shawn Williams did after the game taunting, as well ? Think you can ignore that ? Can you also ignore what Greg McGarity said ? Can you even begin to attempt to ignore what Mark Richt said about Todd Grantham ? Can you even begin to attempt to ignore what Mark Richt said about the players during the game not either going to the sidelines or back to the huddle instead Mark Richt said his players were jawing.

No, I don’t think you can paint that picture. This is yet, again, more bad press for a football team who in 11 years has beat only 3 teams who have finished in the AP Poll Top 10 – and 10 such LOSSES – while in the 3 years they actually beat such a team, we LOST 4 games, 3 games and 4 games ending up all 3 of those years in the AP Poll the # 5 team in The SEC, the # 3 team in The SEC and the # 5 team in The SEC. We are mediocre and without discipline on and off the field including after the games too. I was told we had Good Riddance run-off the bad apples to which I replied, what no one else to force out of this program ever too to, forcing never again a transfer out of this program ? Just saying, you said Good Riddance; so, you are saying Poor Choices by the coaching staff on those recruits heralded when they signed here; but, this staff will never make such Poor Choices, ever again ? Yeah, right. And, then, of course, of the 11 years to-date, we have those 17 Losses to teams who would not have ended up in the AP Poll Top 25 had they NOT beat us – and of those 17 Losses, 10 of those still did not end up in the AP Poll Top 25 even AFTER they BEAT US.

We don’t beat the teams who end up Top 10, are 10 games under .500 against teams who finish in the Top 25, have 17 losses to those who would not have finished in the Top 25 – these ALL for all 11 years; and we have been in the News for Bad Press the whole entire 11 years – never more so than this moment against Vandie with our 11 penalties. Whatever lie Greg McGarity said about penalties, we are # 85 in the nation for the Most Penalties and # 75 in the nation for the Most Yards Penalized. Mediocre, without discipline, cannot beat the great teams 11 years, lose to teams who are no good and nowhere near our talent level for 11 years. And, we can posture in this skirmish with Vandie that what ? Right; got it; we are not an undisciplined, mediocre football program for 11 years.

… I think I have solution for this problem… Just finished reading where Coach Gary Patterson of TCU had scheduled the Air Force Academy (up there) for his team to go and play the Falcons (Sept 16th SI) issue. Game was well played hard and clean and he had the players line up afterward along with the Cadets to stand at attention during the playing of their Alma mater which is a Big Deal at all the Academies. I think UGA along with the rest of the BCS should schedule a Service Academy once every 3-4 years for this experience. I remember Coach K telling his Duke BBall players how tough a Cadets day is right before his Team took on Navy and David Robinson in the NCAA’s… Just some food for thought….

The fact of the matter is that the trenches is not a place for the weak. These are big, mean full grown men in there battling it out – it can get downright nasty in there. I never played the line (too small) and didnt play past 9th grade (not big enough, not good enough) but even in 9th grade ball it got testy in the trenches. Any of you play on the line and maybe played college ball ? If so, you know more than 99.9% of the rest of us what goes on and we’d love to hear about it.
I agree this needs to be a non-issue. Players do things, players retaliate. The coaches probably should have held back more than they did (both coaches) but its not a big deal.
Kwame just messed up by retaliating out in the open for everyone to see it – kind of like when Spikes from UF gouged our RB’s eyes – you dont really think that he just did that for the heck of it do you ? Something happened earlier to him and he retaliated. He also messed up by doing it in the open.

Richt does a good job for the school. Grantham, Franklin , and Richt could have handled it differently. Richt could teach his players to play with class. They also need to lose with class. Ga fans accept it. You are a middle of the road school. It is what it is. It gets old to hear a fan base whine so much and so often. I watch 80% of the SEC’s games each year. Georgia is the only team I see taking cheap shots and pulling stupid moves to prove team unity. You guys ought to unite and play a good football game and walk away respectfully win or lose.

Grantham would be given a medal for sticking up for the players. MR is a great coach and man but I like the fire and passion that Grantham has for the team. As for Geathers the Vandy player took a cheap shot and needs to be kicked off the team.Geathers had was only reacting to a cheap hit.

During the Florida game, I predict that a UGA defensive player will dance and beat his chest after making a simple tackle! Book it!!!

If someone goes after my knees possibly ending my career in football, yes I’m gonna punch them too. And likely I’d find them off the field one day and punch them a few more times too.
