Georgia-Auburn quotes: ‘We just came out here with a mentality to shut them out and get the offense rolling’


“It was a very outstanding performance by everybody — offense, defense, special teams.”

— Georgia coach Mark Richt

“We’re very excited about winning the East. We’re very excited about going to Atlanta. There’s no doubt about that. There’s a lot of work to be done between now and then. … I think we’ve been improving as we go, and hopefully we keep it going.”

— Richt on clinching the SEC East title and a berth in the SEC Championship game at the Georgia Dome

“Georgia is a very good football team. They are certainly worthy of their ranking. But I didn’t feel like we played well in any phase of the game.”

— Auburn coach Gene Chizik

“Our goal really was to start fast. That’s why we came out with the up-tempo, the no-huddle. We do no-huddle all the time, but we went a faster pace no-huddle with some set plays. … (Auburn) had done a great job of defending pro-style offenses all year, and the spread had given them a little trouble. So we went with more spread in the first half and were able to execute it. And once we kind of broke them down through the air, those running backs we have are pretty special.”

— Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo

“I was just excited to wear his jersey to honor him and show I care about him .. I asked him earlier in the week if I could wear it. Hopefully I did well enough to (meet) his standards. Scored you a touchdown, big guy.”

— Georgia wide receiver Tavarres King, who wore the No. 15 jersey of injured teammate Marlon Brown and caught a 17-yard touchdown pass

“We looked up midway through the third quarter, and I was, like, ‘Man, we’ve got more fans here than they do right now.’ It is great to see how dedicated our fans are. … To get to celebrate with them after the game was awesome.”

— Quarterback Aaron Murray on the Bulldogs’ celebration with 10,000-plus UGA fans in Jordan-Hare Stadium long after the vast majority of Auburn fans had left

“We wanted to start fast and finish strong. We just came out here with a mentality to shut them out and get the offense rolling.”

— Georgia safety Bacarri Rambo

“We’ve got a lot of prideful guys, but also I think we’ve got some guys that have gotten better and more comfortable in the way they’re playing over these few weeks. I think the combination of the pride and work ethic these guys have (and) the ability to stay the course, that’s the key thing. When things aren’t going well, you’ve got to believe in what you’re doing and stay the course. If you do that, you get through things. That’s really what we’ve done.”

— Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham on his unit’s improvement since a 35-7 loss to South Carolina in early October

“Georgia did what they had to do to win the game. They’re very good. They were very consistent running the ball. They have a good scheme.”

— Auburn linebacker Cassanova McKinzy

I am sorry but half of the SEC teams would beat ND, K-State or Oregon…..not impressed, Oregon plays absolutely no-one, and these announcers are drooling all over themselves…

I hate that Bama lost today. It should be all about SEC! But then that possible would of caused it own set of problems. If lil ole GA were to win by some underdog circumstance and had Bama been undefeated at the time…well we would of screwed up the SEC chance possible of winning the big one. For the seventh time! But now that Bama has loss I say for sure… GATA!!!

With a team from the SEC having won the last 6 Mythical National Championships none of these other teams from the other conferences should be considered for BCS National Championship game. Look at this way until one of those teams- Kansas State, Norte Dame or Oregon beats an SEC team then they haven’t beaten anyone- The SEC has 6 teams this year who are legitimate top 10 Best teams- Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Texas A & M and South Carolina.

So to be the best then you have to beat the best, Those 6 teams have beat up on each other and Georgia and Alabama will be playing for a TRUE CHAMPIONSHIP in Atlanta.

Could we have a real playoff system right now? Pretty please. Our Dawgs have a real chance to demonstrate why a real playoff is so necessary. Wouldn’t you love to see both Texas A&M, and Georgia in a playoff against the pretenders from the weak conferences, and the biggest pretender of all.

Does anyone not know who the biggest pretender of all is?

Go, Dawgs!

Great game, and I don’t agree with anyone that thinks we should get rid of Bobo. He has done a masterful job in improving our offense with the spread, and it really plays well for Murray. I had my doubts about Grantham early on, but he certainly has our D playing well now.

I wonder if the Auburn fans rolled Chizik”s house instead of Toomer’s Oaks?

Based on the idiotic post you keep blogging on here, I would think that UGA has a better chance of winning the SEC, before anybody does, of seeing you write something close to intelligent. Obama and you are probably at a tie as to which one actually wins in a heads up contest, to reach the goals they set.

So funny liustening to the biased announcers on TV last night.

When Oregon FINALLY started winning late in the game against a bad team:
“Wow, Oregon is spectacular’

When Georgia DOMINATED a team LSU beat 12-10:
“Auburn looks terrible, Oregon looks great”

Nice win last night. Would be great to win the SEC this year. Last year all we did was show up for two quarters. This team can beat Bama. Run the no-huddle and an up tempo offense and keep playing consistantly on defense. GO DAWGS!


November 11th, 2012

I agree with your take on those announcers. Did you watch USC vs Oregon? USC averaged at least 10 yards per play….maybe 700+ yards in the game. The 2 teams had a combined 900 yards in the first half alone. Oregon’s defense is vulnerable and they haven’t played a good defense. UGa has an offense that can EASILY put up 40-50 points against Oregon….and our defense is light years better than anything Oregon has seen. I wouldn’t sell UGa short in that match-up. Of course we need to take care of Bama and get a little help for that match-up to happen.


November 11th, 2012

Great to see the Dawgs take care of business, the score could have been a lot worse. For the negative bloggers that is what you do when you don’t have a record to run on. You trash your opponent and those who are easily led follow along.

Dawgs just need to take care of business each week.
Dont be surprised if Oregon( play Stanford,Oregon State, and USC) again, Notre Dame a real week sister( USC)and Kansas State(Baylor and Texas) all lose before its over.
We could see a Notre Dame/Georgia Rematch…..?
Heck you could see a Georgia Florida rematch for the BCS championship if the stars and moon line up.
Stranger stuff has happened.
But nothing happens if the Dawgs drop to GA Southern or Tech or BAMA.

what is the scenario in the West if Bama looses to Auburn? LSU/BAMA/TX A&M all 6-2 in confernece– I assume highest ranked BCS team to SECCC? Not likely, I know, but stranger things have happened. I would love to get ND in the Sugar Bowl and stomp a mud hole in them!


November 11th, 2012
10:47 am

I do think there is a good chance two of the three teams loose. Oregon has the toughest road. I think it is more likely USC beats N Dame than Texas beating K State. We just need to take care of what we can and then let the chips fall. We really need USC to finish STRONG!! GO USC! GO TEXAS!! GOOOOODAWGS!!!

One point: Richt pulled the offensive starters really early and Bobo started calling the “OK, we’re through scoring ” offense before we even got to the 4th quarter. Admit it – we could have put up another 21 points on the Kittens in the 4th. This game was not even close. We basically whupped them in 3 quarters and went home. I know CTG left the starters out there but the defense has to be prepared to play 4 full quarters and besides that – he wanted the goose egg. But here’s the rub ~ if that had been Spurrier, he would have been chucking balls into the end zone until the clock expired – that’s why everybody thinks he’s an a**hole. Richt knew the pressure Cheatzik was under at Auburn and he was not going to fan the flames by putting 50 + on them when they were down. I don’t expect Chizik would do the same as he also is a classless moron like Spurrier. Bottom line ~ Richt is a decent man on and off the field ~ he may frustrate the HE** out of us at times but as far as having the classiest coach in the country – we’ve got him. Sometimes, because he looks at the big picture ( the really big picture) while we little fans are only looking at “futbal” , we get frustrated with him. We shouldn’t. Look, last year the year started out like a freight train that had come off the tracks and he kept those kids together, focused and believing – not many coaches have that kind of power over a team when the SHTF. After the SC game, when everybody was throwing in the towel, he, again, kept them together and believing – in both cases – the dividends have been huge. Let’s enjoy him and the team this year and just cut the negative crap out. How many teams would give anything to be where we are. We REALLY DON’T have ANYTHING to whine about! Go Dawgs!

Congrads to Georgia! I’m glad Georgia won and I hope they can play the remaining of the season
with great intensity and focus.

I would also like to say a great job by Texas A.M. and welcome to the SEC.

Georgia needs to take this win for what it was, a win, and nothing else. Georgia has a long way to go and any loss could adversely affect their main goal of being considered a true and honest contender for the SEC Championship and a chance (slight) to play for a National Championship.

I am not going to debate who of Kansas State, Oregon or Notre Dame is better, I much rather think about Georgia playing well enought to compete against the remaining Number # 1 and a bowl game. This would elevate Georgia to a level of respectabililty in the sports world regardless of the outcome.

Go Dawgs and to all the coaches and players, the very best and I am exciting about the potential of this team to make a staement this year!

I was replaying the game and heard one of the announcers say that Chizik had employed a private security firm to patrol the football players dorms and MAKE SURE they were all in their rooms at 11:00 – this after an arrest a few weeks ago – the announcer said the players were not happy with this arrangement…..that is displayed a lack of trust between the coaches and players. And you think WE have problems??? Actually, we don’t have to hire a private security firm – Athens is under the jurisdiction of no less than SEVEN separate police jurisdictions. LOL

After the game 2 years ago,i will never, ever have the smallest amout of pitty for au. Their behavior/their coaches encouraging their behavior is unforgivable. I hope uga watches the video of the 2010 game every year prior to playing au.
And i don’t recall ever seeing that thug/”coach” trooper taylor jumping around on the sideline yesterday-haha!

Great win!

And on another note: Richt made a statement earlier in the week about how much respect he had for his former defensive coaches who are now at Auburn ~ he was not going to run up the score on Van Gorder and Worthless Willie. Van Gorder had some good defenses when he was with us. He just can’t seem to stay in one place – too bad. As for Martinez……Richt should have fired him after year one. As I watch the replay – I see where on some of the plays where Murray got sacked, the Auburn players seemed to make it a point to just fall on him after he was on the ground and try and squash him after the fact – I guess the coaching tactics haven’t changed, even after Farley left….same old coaching thuggery at work.

@Tell me again, I agree with you totally on all your posts. Richt has class, and he is a good man. I’m glad he didn’t run the score up, as some other coaches would’ve done. Like onegadaw, I believe in karma. Auburn did make a deal with the devil to win in 2010, and they are still paying for it. And people say that UGA had “thugs” on our team? I don’t think so. I saw what Fairly (?) did to Aaron two years ago–that incredibly forceful late hit from behind. He is the living definition of “thug.”

Georgia finally played a total game last night. They’re peaking at the right time and the enthusiasm has picked up significantly since Shawn Williams challenged their manhood. IMO Williams is the Dawgs MVP player this year.

Perhaps the Dawgs winning back-to-back East titles will quiet the naysayers!

Congrats to Texas A&M, what a classy school! Go Dawgs!

And that win by A&M, wow! Bama fans thought they could win, really, that ending hurt worse than them getting beat 38-0 like we did Auburn…A&M not only stuck a knife in their heart the last minute, but the knife was rusty and they twisted it and kept twisting, oh, it hurt so bad! Lordy at least we got the Falcons and Braves and Hawks in Ga. those Bammer fans may not show up at work for a week or two! You reap what you sow loud mouths!!!!

All that matters is the SEC Championship game. If we take care of business and beat GSU & GT, we have a legitimate shot to beat Bama. Bama has shown that they are vulnerable. I hope we do not show up at the SECCG and shart the bed like we did against SC.

The BCS is nothing but a popularity contest. Unless K State, Oregon or ND loses, we will be shut out of the BCSCG.

I’ll take pride in winning the SEC.


November 11th, 2012
4:47 pm

OK, I already posted this on other blogs, but here it is again:

All of you who think that Alabama losing will hurt Georgia’s chances to get to the NCG are WRONG. Actually, it will benefit UGA. Why?

1 – UGA was not going to the NCG without 2 of the 3 unbeaten teams losing no matter how highly ranked Bama will be when we play them. Even if we upset #1 Alabama, the biased folks at ESPN will not let the Dawgs leap 2 undefeated teams, no matter what. Get this in your heads. It wasn’t going to happen. We still need 2 out of 3 unbeatens to lose, nothing has changed. Now when we play them, even if they are #4, if there is only one unbeaten team left, then if we beat them we will get to #2 and will make it to the NCG.

2 – NOW that Bama has lost 1 game, the national media are forced to prematurely have the conversation about whether a 1-loss Bama team should leapfrog any unbeatens. Now, some in the media are going to say “yes, they should, if they win the SEC.” Because of this, the media is starting the conversation early, so if many of them for some reason are saying “yes, the SEC is so hard, and a one-loss SEC Champion deserves to play in the NCS (referencing Bama of course, not UGA)” they are setting themselves up for contradiction if and when UGA wins the SEC.

3 – Bama fans are the most obnoxious fans in the SEC. They’re starting to get more annoying than Florida fans and that’s saying something. It’s great to see them put back in their place and great to see them depressed. Now they have to go back to their crappy trailers and broken dreams in one of the most boring, racist, depressing states in the country. My black heart derives so much glee at this prospect.
