Leg bumper is one of those rare finds: a rational, k owl edges or UGA fan.
Kicker: it takes real cowardice on your part to show up and talk smack after the game. Don’t be like the UGA idiots on here...they know they lost. No need to be obnoxious about it.
@Corch “Healthy people under the age of 60 have absolutely nothing to fear with a 99.4% survival rate.” This may be the stupidest thing you’ve ever posted! A 99.4% survival rate means 3 out of every 500 people die. Did those 3 individuals have anything to fear?
@BlackandGold: “aren’t at risk of death?” I bet the parents of the student who just died from COVID at Appalachian State would love for that to be true.
Unless it is a properly fitted N95, wearing a mask does not protect you...it protects others FROM you. This is why everyone wearing them is so important!
Those decisions are to blame. China (the original epicenter of this) did those things and have handled the virus. If a single case is reported, then the entire region reverts to lockdown. What is the difference? They have a dictatorial government that doesn’t care if they trample individual rights and a cultural in which people have no problem being inconvenienced in order to protect their neighbor. If we had the second we wouldn’t need the first.
I am a professor at a small university. I believe that in-person classes will be moved to a virtual format once the college season is played. University systems cannot play football without in-person classes (very bad optics) and they REALLY want the football revenue. Once that is gone, rational thought will prevail and in-person classes will be gone.
Wolfman: “ignores science”? What science is being ignored? The science that tells us that cases of C-19 is growing? The science that states we don’t know the long term health effects of C-19? The science that relates that the instances of C-19 in minors has increased seven-fold? What reason can a university president, coach, conference, or the NCAA give to the family of anyone who contracts the disease and dies because of it? “We’re so sorry. We did everything we could think of to protect your loved one...except postpone the season.” What exactly are your scientific credentials to make such a statement about ignoring science?
The problem is that the east is not very deep. If they put UF on Bama's schedule, then they may be eliminating several contenders. It is sketchy that the one year UGA was supposed to have the toughest schedule in the east they end up with two extra wins and now have one of the easiest.
I think UF-Ark was done for the "drama" of Franks facing his old team. There has to be some story line behind these games. UF-A&M is an intriguing matchup. I feel bad for Mizzou and Ark. I'm not sure how this is balanced for those teams.
Be careful. Facts can make you look foolish. Do you realize that GT has a NC a decade more recently than UGA?
I have to agree with everything except #5. I enjoy the meaningless bowls that come before Christmas. They provide mid-week football during a time when I’m around the house with family and not working.
Is Bama a forgone conclusion to win the west?
Recently though you've been turning it off for the opposite reason. And I will admit, it is no fun losing to Georgia. Hopefully that changes this year. Hopefully we have college football this year!!
You would know...you had to do it for most of the 90's and 00's.
Nah. Nobody would remember in a few years. Few people remember that UGA's 1942 was won because the coach signed the entire team up for ROTC to keep them from getting drafted. If that one counts, this one certainly would!
I don’t know why it posted this twice...
Both UF and FSU are bashed for weak OOC play because everyone takes this for granted. That is like saying USC shouldn’t count their annual game against ND. Why not? USC steps up with this game every year. UF and FSU do the same!
I hate that UF and FSU get no credit for playing each other EVERY year. Both teams are bashed for weak OOC play because everyone takes this for granted. That is like saying USC shouldn’t count their annual game against ND. Why not? USC steps up with this game every year. UF and FSU do the same!
Athens is a VERY nice town with generally great people (as long as I don’t antagonize anyone). The real problem is getting there! Whoever planned the route of I-20 screwed up by not making that 30 minute detour!!!
Need to know your history before making wild accusations. UGAs ‘42 NC is because the coach disrespected the military and signed the entire team up for ROTC so they wouldn’t be drafted into WWII.
I don't get this line of criticism. Kirby is a great recruiter and a good coach. He has yet to win the big game against elite competition. Great coaches win those games. Mullen is a great play caller and a good coach. The talent he inherited at UF was SIGNIFICANTLY worse than what Kirby had a UGA. However, UF is certainly trending in the right direction. I'll take the upward trend and leave the unmet expectations to UGA. And, for what it is worth, I have a B.S. (honor grad) and an M.S. in mathematics and a Ph.D. in Curriculum.
I agree with your assessment. UGA has a good team that played hard, but LSU is just a great team. And sometimes the injuries just don't go your way. However, I find it odd that so many UGA fans refused to admit Florida was in the same position with injuries when they played UGA (Grennard, Zuniga, Toney, Jeremiah Moon, Franks). Admitting that one team was hindered by injuries in no way diminishes what the other team accomplished in winning.
Stricklin called out everyone! Can’t blame UF that Ohio State wouldn’t take our offer.
As a gator, I will admit we got brat and UGA was the better team Saturday. Sis that terrible call change the dynamic of the game? Sure. Did it change the outcome? I don’t think so. My complaint with the officiating is how awful it has been in the SEC this year. I am not claiming bias...just bad. We have benefited from it (South Carolina) and hurt by it (UGA). I guess that is the new normal. Congrats to UGA. I hope, for the sake of DAWGS everywhere, that they don’t come close to greatness and choke again. Either win it all (my preferred choice) or lose badly. The heartache of another close loss would kill a few fans that I know.
What about Jake Fromm makes Jordan believe in him in big games? It seems to me that big games is where UGA struggles. An pair of NFL running backs (Michel and Chubb) carried the Dawgs in the Rose Bowl, and they lost the lead to Bama in the N.C. and last year’s SECCG. I’m not trying to insult. I think Fromm is a top 10 QB in the country, but big games is when that team falls apart. That said, I think both teams will be dialed in for the cocktail party this hear. Hoping UGA and UF can get healthy so it is best in best! Here’s to a game to remember!
This drives me crazy! “ Florida football has long been criticized for not playing a regular-season non-SEC true road game outside the Sunshine State.” If you have to put that many qualifiers on it, perhaps it isn’t that interesting. How many states have 3 power 5 teams? I cannot stand that it is always UF that gets badmouthed for having our OOC rival in the same state. Very few teams outside the SEC play the difficulty of an SEC schedule, yet the Gators are put down for this? I am glad Stricklin has called everyone out. Can’t blame UF for games not played when he just issued an open invitation!
Wouldn’t diligent students be done studying by midnight before the exam?
I cannot decide if I should be really happy or sad. As a math professor, this post: 1) ensures job security and 2) hurts me deep in my soul.
