What it means going forward???
I’ll tell you what it means
Another 10 win National Title Season
October 8th, 20125:17 pm
Continued losing to top 20 teams
October 8th, 20125:19 pm
Continuing to rip off fans by demanding them to donate high amounts of money to get season tickets
October 8th, 20125:23 pm
Continued blaming players for poor coaching
October 8th, 20125:26 pm
Chip’s at the beach. Mark Richt is at the bank. The players are off.
The fans are wondering why Mr. Richt isn’t in the unemployment lines.
Show of hands time. Who thinks Georgia will beat Florida (not can beat, but will beat)? Not me.
Who thinks South Carolina will beat Florida? Me.

Richt and company fall flat in every big game they play. Not prepared to play. Need new coaches desperately, somebody with some fire in their belly, namely the head coach.

CMR retires in 5 years as a wealthy coach without a BCS Title
UGA still puts out NFL caliber players
Fans will still go o the games because they can not help themselves from going
October 8th, 20125:41 pm
We’re all disappointed UGA was not even competitive vs. USC, but we need to keep it in perspective. SC just exposed Georgia’s biggest weakness which is the offensive line and blocking of the freshmen backs. If the O line had played equal to the rest of the team the outcome would have at least been close if not a win.
October 8th, 20125:45 pm
Kool-aid fans like cyberdawg posting on this blog who refuse to pull their hand out of the sand and come to reality about the coaching
October 8th, 20125:48 pm
There is no “going forward”. The season is over. Does anyone in the athletic department have Jim Tressel’s phone number?
October 8th, 20125:55 pm
The UGA Athletic Department just announced that the official mascot has been changed from a ‘Bulldog’ to a ‘Hen’ because of all of the eggs that the team has been laying over the past couple of years.
October 8th, 20125:56 pm
Not a bad idea
Kirby Smart maybe
October 8th, 20126:03 pm
Its a good thing we schedule 10 games a year that are almost sure wins
If we didnt
I wouldnt be able to wear my 10 Win National Title T-shirt every year
October 8th, 20126:07 pm
I’m pretty sure if we only scheduled 10 games a year, 8 wins is the best we could do and that would be a good year, to many fans
tough night...oh well
October 8th, 20126:14 pm
south carolina will be out of the polls by the end of the season….many losses upcoming….

what about mike nolan the falcons dc….at least our defense would be better

October 8th, 20127:19 pm
I’m still so angry about the offensive game plan… Absolutely no excuse for not double teaming Clowney and Devin Taylor the whole game… Why do we even recruit Tight Ends anymore… Why do we have a full back? If I am Lynch and Rome and Merritt Hall I’m thinking I could have helped protect my QB. I could’ve blocked for my Running Backs. I’m thinking I could’ve chipped the DE and released and caught the linebackers being too aggressive…I’m wondering why the heck I sat on the sidelines for all but one possession watching Kenarious Gates getting beat time after time.
I’m not knocking the Georgia tackles… Nobody’s tackles can block those two ends one on one. I thought the coaches had made the adjustment on the last possession before halftime… Hall and Lynch in the game and we moved the ball… Then we get down to the 2 yd line and run 4 plays from the shotgun spread… No TE and no FB in the game.?
If we ever want to be like bama, we gotta get into the right formations. We have to go back to a ball control offense… We have to run power formations… This is SEC football. Don’t you want your biggest athletes on offense (Rome / Lynch / Hall / Samuel (FB) against a physically gifted defense?
I have supported Richt and Bobo through adversity, but I’m tired of watching my team start every possession from the shotgun spread… It would be one thing if Murray was a dual threat QB, but he’s not… I’m ready for a change of leadership and philosophy. We were Tailback U… Our Tight Ends used to get big yards down the middle of the field… We used to play SEC power football.
Is the Big 12 taking applications?
Dawg Tired of it…
GT will fire CPJ before UGA will fire CMR.

Go Gurshell Go!!!!
October 8th, 20128:37 pm
Guess we really showed S. C. some ‘old man football’! It did kinda look like a bunch of old men out there, and I watched the first five minutes!
October 8th, 20128:40 pm
The numbers dont lie, we have not gotten it done aganist teams of equal talent, CMR has to get rid of boo boo can someone look up our numbers when CMR was doing the gameplanning to when he decided to give boo boo the o cordinator job after Neil Callaway who was our o cord. And line coach before leaving for UAB?
October 8th, 20129:03 pm
@outer banks Dawg,
My concern about the offense was Clowney’s comment that he got a jump on the snap count on EVERY play because the OL gave it away. I sure as hell hope we figure this one out!!!
October 8th, 20129:04 pm
The same people want Richt gone that did so years ago. A lot of the same people who think loyalty to an inept coach is loyalty to their school have now ingested years of kool-aid. Everything remains the same, nothing ever changes. I hate making money off sure bets against my alumni but its the only way to make lemonade out of Richt/Bobo lemons.
October 8th, 20129:56 pm
At this point, if Richt starts Murray against Florida, Richt is throwing the season away intentionally, and ok with finishing 10-2.
Murray will not win, we know that, he’s 0-10 vs teams that finish in the top 25.
So it will be interesting to see if Richt really even cares about winning that game.
If Hutson Mason doesn’t start, Richt’s mailing it in.
October 8th, 201210:00 pm
Our biggest weakness is not the offensive line. A much bigger weakness is a coaching staff that does not understand the importance of an offensive line above all else and before all else.
October 8th, 201210:08 pm
Seriously, can we hire a proven OC and DC? Can we bring back the 4-3 D? The 3-4 sucks….CTG looked freakin lost during the game. Half the time the D isnt set and ready before the play. JJ has been neutralized.
October 8th, 201210:17 pm
Outer Banks Dawg – I am equally puzzled. What is the official response to observations like yours?
Why doesn’t that demonstrate incompetence at this level? If there’s an argument, I’d like to hear it.
Are they so unprepared and inept as to have no plan B when Plan A is not working? How long does it take them to figure it out when Plan A is not working?
October 8th, 201210:24 pm
Kirby Smart is the one. He has had to have learned from the master/Saban. Plus, he is a Ga. boy.
October 8th, 201210:29 pm
But he is a good Christian man and teaches Sunday School…………
October 8th, 201210:45 pm
I think Spurrier and the other cocks knew Georgia’s snap count and plays better than BOBO.
The Tide is Rolling and Nothing can stop it
October 8th, 201210:49 pm
It’s a good thing you guys locked down Grantham this off season with a fat raise. I suppose shutting down Kentucky and Ole Miss is the test of champions.
October 8th, 201210:50 pm
Hey you dumb coaches, how about lining up a tight end beside me every now and then to help with Clowney. I couldn’t block sunlight.
October 8th, 201210:51 pm
I tried to tell you guys all off season not to get too hopeful about your awesome coordinator that averaged 39 pts to ranked teams
But you just wanted to blame it on the offense.
Then, you thought you had an awesome offense.
32 years boys!
October 8th, 201211:01 pm
Yeah, and there was something Shaw said before the game about secondary tendencies he was going to take advantage of, something he saw in the TN game and other games. It was a cat got the canary kind of remark before the game.
October 8th, 201211:02 pm
and they knocked those first two passing touchdowns pretty easily
October 8th, 201211:08 pm
Go forward and look for our new coach!
Let CMR and Bowden go and do book tours and Missions together.
They can talk about how they both did less with more
Gruden Gruden Gruden!!!!!!
October 8th, 201211:13 pm
No Gruden! No Smart! Jeez, is that the best you can do?
Gruden is not coaching for a reason and Smart has no integrity. Why would you want either of them?
October 8th, 201211:29 pm
…Umm maybe because Smart has learned from the best college football coach in the modern era. He has been on his staff for several years. Coached teams that have been on National Championships. Knows first hand what it takes to be champion and have a team prepared every Saturday. Little things like that.

Excellent points Big Wally.
October 8th, 201211:35 pm
thank you Big Wally 1.
October 8th, 201211:40 pm
Jim Tressel, screw that !!!! Flat tire needs to get inflated !!! The key to coaching is adapting. The Ole ball coach can adapt. I’m not sure if ours can. The O-line just could not block. We should have had somebody permantly assigned to help the left tackle ie; fullback, tightend. You know, I don’t know exactly what we practice, but our tackles do practice pass protection…right ? They have played for years. Funny how South Carolina has no problem blocking our guys. We can’t even blitz properly. Fat guys don’t really rush the passer..do they? How about oin third and long have specialized pass rushers, ie guys who fast on their feet!
October 8th, 201211:44 pm
Not sure what is Murray’s problem… Height ? I guess UGA will have REGRETS !
October 8th, 201211:56 pm
A lot of the fault goes to the AJC…and I’m serious.

Yep Georgia football has problems, that’s obvious, no line play to speak of on either side of the ball………….but what is more glaring than Xs and Os is the pathetic fan base………………I went to Georgia, love and support Georgia, but at least I can point out my frustration without the uncivilized, knuckle dragging, childish behavior I have witnessed over the past couple days……………….Aaron Murray’s father has cancer………….give it a rest, you’ve beaten him enough already…………I’m praying for a more decent fan base………….not more wins……………..God Bless……………RED
