Spurrier: ‘They can’t say they own us anymore, that’s for sure’

WHAT THEY SAID AFTER SOUTH CAROLINA’S 35-7 WIN OVER GEORGIA

“Obviously this was a special one … beating three years in a row a school that used to own you. They can’t say they own us anymore, that’s for sure.”

— South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier on the Gamecocks’ first three-game winning streak in the history of the Georgia-South Carolina series, which UGA leads 46-17-2

“This was actually my 250th overall win as a coach [including college, NFL and USFL], and having it against the Georgia Bulldogs is special, too. That’s a team that used to beat my alma mater [Florida] very well. I’ve been fortunate as a coach against them, not so much as a player, but as a coach.”

– Spurrier, 15-5 as a coach against Georgia (11-1 with Florida and 4-4 with South Carolina)

“Like I told the guys, ‘The bad news is we took a whipping, but the good news is that we all took it together.’ I don’t think anyone could look in the mirror and say, ‘I had a great day, but the other boys didn’t.’ … We got beat by a very good team that was primed and ready to go.”

— Georgia coach Mark Richt

“It stings. We felt like we had a great rhythm offensively going on in the first five games. … [South Carolina has] a very talented defense all over the board. They’re up there with the best I’ve ever played.”

— Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray after the Bulldogs, who averaged 48.2 points per game in the first five, were held to one touchdown against South Carolina (that with less than two minutes remaining)

“This was the greatest atmosphere I’ve ever played in.”

— South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw

“He was pretty much reading me. If I got up field, he was going to take off running. … He made plays with his feet, and he was fast, faster than I thought he was.”

— Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones on Shaw, who had 78 yards rushing on 14 carries

“I think we did a good job tonight. That was our goal — to come out here and put pressure on [Murray] and cause a lot of conflict with the offensive line. … [Georgia’s] offensive line gave away when they were going to hike the ball, so I got a good jump on it.”

— South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney

“We just made a lot of bonehead mistakes. Giving up big plays, jumping offsides, turning the ball over — we can’t do things like that and win ballgames. … It was just lack of focus on our part. When that happens, it’s easy for a team to make a big play, and that’s what they did.”

— Georgia cornerback Sanders Commings

“They had us on our heels all night. You’ve got to give that defense credit.”

– Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo

“We gave up two touchdowns right off the bat on explosive plays. You can’t do that. … Give them credit. We dug ourselves a hole.”

— Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham

“I think our stadium was probably the loudest in the country today.”

– Spurrier

The UGA coach quotes are pure crap and I hope they read this. Sure, you dug yourself a 21 point hole but you also shutout SC in the 2nd quarter. Did UGA do anything to show life? NO! 21-7 at halftime would have been good.

21-14 after the opening drive of the 2nd half would have been good too, then you’d have a ball game. UGA looks like they didn’t practice worth a lick all week. Too busy drankin’ and getting high I’d assume. How many violations of team rules could we find if we really look?

The team is only as good as its coaches, and ours suck. We have no coach at uga that is a true leader. Richt is not a head coach. He needs to go back being an OC. He’s been our coach for 12 years this year and hasn’t done jack since the van gorder days. The bulldogs will not compete against a good team until we get a neww coach. That will show leadership in the locker room and on the feild and off. Richt and his staff doesn’t offer that. That’s why we fold in every big game cause the coaches don’t know how to get the players ready. Look at the gators muschamp is only on his 2nd year aand he’s turned them around they are a tough team physically and mentally and looking good. Richt is on year 12 and what has he done without van gorder or ann elite player that could have been much better if he went else where. Cause richts play developement sucks or he doesn’t know how to use talent. I’m sick of this every year. We need new blood, a new culture, a new look which all equals a new coach and staff. I love my dawgs I’m sick of this kind of loss year end and out. Go Dawgs I support the pllayers not the coaches though.

Hey UGA fans…I know it was a tough night but you guys have shown a lot of class in these blogs. I know how you feel cause our Gamecocks have broken our hearts more than a few times. I think it is fair to say we have the best coaching and talent in the SEC this year. I hope we can make our fellow teams in the SEC East proud this year and prove our division has the most talent. Lets both beat UF cause I know we will be pulling for the DAWGS when you faceoff against them after in a few weeks. Keep you heads up, you got a talented teams and you will finish the season strong.

Gotta give Spurrier credit. Getting our guys to jump offside on 4th and 1 at his own 20 with his team up by four TDs was as hilarious and embarrassing a play as I’ll ever see from any Georgia team. He did that for only one reason. He wanted to show the world just how undisciplined and stupid our guys are.

Clear as day, the world saw it.

This is the most talented Gamecock team I’ve ever seen. They are far and away the class of the SEC East … I think they should beat LSU nex t week in Baton Rouge and believe they are better than Florida. They are perhaps the only team who can match up well with Bama. Carolina, has a habit though of dropping at least one game they should win. It will be a travesty if they do because I think we may have played the national champions tonight.

This was a total embarassement to Georgia, The State of Georgia, and Bulldawg Nation every where. Been Fare to CMR, but it’s obvious now as Spurrier gets SC better, and Georgia slides under Richts leadership. Not going to take lng to elaborate, but prime example on 4th & Goal we throw and under route to Wooten a 5′10 WR, With 6′5 Brown, 6′3 King, and two #1 TE’S in the country who combined have 5 catches. Like Spurrier said two years ago, “Georgia gets all that talent, and I don’t know what happens”. Well coach I’ll tell you what happens, they meet a SC team we used to handle and now get out coached year in, and year out. Fire Richt Now!!!!!!!!

Hey Coach Bobo, We don’t recruit ‘6 feet 260lb Fullbacks to spread the offense out. Line them up, put Gurley and/or Marshall back there and hit them in the mouth from the first play, then you go play action after you’ve made the LB’s have to think. You called a piss poor game tonight and so many more. Grow up coach and play some “Grown Man Football” again. It works time after time, ask spurrier with Lattimore on his team.

Spurrier can crow now for winning the game but Dawgs have the last laugh by winning East after SCar folds and chokes as usual. Visor Boy is Evil while Dawgs got Christain coaching that knows how to deal with tribalation like this. Dawgs will come back next game stronger to finish season on roll. Dawgs did better job scheduling and that pays off with still having chance to go to Dome. Visor Boy is a laughing hyndena now but we fix him by Dawgs winning East again.

I tried to tell you people what is wrong with this team and it ain’t the players. Take another look at this video.

http://youtu.be/pb3xnp-foE8

When a new assistent coach has to constantly scream at players for not following instructions, you got problems at the top. I don’t blame Belin for leaving this team. The uga needs a hc like Warren Belin.

Grow up UGA fans and get another life to go with football. Quit whining. Your team has 5 wins and 5 can`t lose remaining. The other one against UF is also very winable.
It is amazing that you guys get so upset over one loss. Your team is very good. Be thankful!

Georgia and its fan’s have a false sense of how good they think they are and it starts with the AD. You can not continue to schedule cream puffs most of which you have trouble with and hope to ever be considered a real strong program. Coaching well I don’t know, what I do know when you see you are unable to run or block I think most coaching staff’s would recognize they need to make adjustments. Same can be said for the defense. There certainly seems to be far too many players being suspended at Georgia each year.. Simply said that comes from players not giving damn about their team,school or anything but themselves. You can not miss multiple games and expect players to play well.

As the saying goes Georgia is not ready for prime time they are an embarrassment to the school and program. Every year it is the same. Well if this team losses and we can beat this one or that we could still play for the championship. In essences we can not do it on our own we need help. What a pathetic attitude to have to rely on every year. NO BCS BOWL FOR YOU GUYS!!!

Hold your head up & quit complaining. Give kudos to the Gamecocks. They outplayed us tonight with a superior gameplan & execution. If the Gamecock team that played Ky. last week had shown up, we would have smoked them. Lets see what they do against LSU & Florida. We can still have a very good season. We have the players & coaching staff to have a great year.

Its very clear the better team was more prepared and easily won the game…but its even more clear that Spurrier is an egomaniac. To make the comments he made after Carolina beat Georgia shows he doesn’t have an ounce of class in his body…..and never will! Great coaches are humble in loss and show class in victory something that he just doesn’t understand. He should let other people tell him and his team how good they are and not pat himself on the back and poke fun at the competition……thats what truely great coaches do!

UGA is not an elite level team and never will be with the current coaching staff. They will always be good, but not great. So we will continue to win 8 or 9 games a year which will be “good enough” to justify keeping everyone in place. The AD will do nothing about this so we all need to deal with it!!! This is reality…the schedule is set up like it is for this very reason. We will beat the “directional schools, struggle with TN, KY, MS, Vandy…and lose to USC, UF, LSU, and AL.from here on out, so settle in Dawg fans…here we go!!!
