All these thoughts and plans are moot if Kirby doesn't start playing to win instead of NOT to lose. Play to UGA's strengths, exploit the opponents weakness and kick them in the arse until their nose bleeds...simple play calling won't fix that.
Pulling a Tennessee? Georgia’s social media team appears to have given up during loss to South Carolina
OMG...a crappy article written by a UF alum vs UGa? Com'on SDS....
Series: Georgia leads 52–43–2
It's as if UGa NEEDS to lose mid-season to get motivated the rest of the way....
You don't typically hear a kicker talk about the "film room"...maybe that's it? That blocked FG before half wasn't on Hot Rod..but it made difference in the ball game. he makes that..UGA wins in regulation.
Kirby couldn't manage an egg timer...Same thing vs Vandy/Tenn/GT in 2016, NC game in 2017, LSU & SECCG in 2018. He chokes in stress situations and can't manage the "game tempo"... Everyone saying "this is UGA's best team under Kirby" hasn't been watching IMO. These "slow starts" weren't really "s;ow starts" at all but a coach coaching "Not To Lose"...big difference instead of coming out for blodd and keeping your foot on the opponent all game. UGA lacks a killer instinct and it has since Kirby got here. Great recruiter, great salesman, but so-so in-game manager. Maybe I can still sell my SECCG tix....
You'd think the Gators would want some "good vibes" and wear the All-Orange unis after the last time they won with a goal line stand in Red Stick.
Gators wearing Black unis....worst....idea....ever. Even the "Alligator Print" was a better look than that would be.
Only way this works is if Bama beats UGA in Atlanta, UGA gets penalized for losing SSECCG. Or LSU beats UGA in Atlanta and UGA gets penalized for losing SECCG.
Plus ND is lurking out there as a 1-loss team with a "quality loss" on the road to top 3 team.
SEC Champ, undefeated OU, undefeated Clemson, undefeated tOSU get in. Some crazy things are going to have to happen to get a 1-loss 2nd SEC team into the CFP this year. Usually the SEC Champ game loser gets penalized which is why even if UGA's only loss is in Atlanta, I think a 1-loss LSU or Auburn gets into the CFP ahead of UGA. Just my $.02...
@ BamaTime - That's why he said "road" games, not Neutral site games....When was Bama's last true road Non-conference game?
Didn't Urban invent the Internet as well??
Too bad he didn't show that kind of passion at UGA....
Denzel & Robert are both Georgia boys. Mark Richt recruited Denzel to UGA and then when his grades weren't going to get him in, CMR still wrote letters of recommendation for Denzel to get him into Ole Miss. Denzel continued to trash CMR and UGA....glad neither of them ended up at UGA.
Where is all that cash CSU made Florida pay up for Jim McElwain???
Add Trevor Lawrence to that list.....
Kirby is Old School and wants to promote the "UGA brand". I don't see him blowing the HUGE National TV/ESPN College Gameday spotlight opportunity to showcase the Red&Black. Keep it simple...Red Helmets/Red jerseys/Silver britches....I was at that 2008 Black Out Bama game.....no sir........
Terrell Davis-Super Bowl MVP/Pro Football Hall of Fame.....Herschel Walker RB-Heisman Trophy Winner 1980/SEC #1 Yards, Frank Sinkwich RB-Heisman Trophy Winner 1942, Charlie Trippi RB-Maxwell Award Winner College Football MVP 1946.....and then TG3, Michel, Chubb SEC #2 Yards, Musa Smith, Knowshon Moreno etc etc
Former Georgia OL Isaiah Wynn shares what he gained from ‘redshirt season’ with New England Patriots
Trudawg - I think I speak for Dawg fans every where when I say please stop posting as a UGA fan. You are neither truthful nor a Dawg fan, so please just go away.
Lewis Grizzard is rolling in his grave right now....Keith Butler?? Whomever Adam Spencer is, he should be BANNED FOR LIFE from writing for SDS ever again....especially UGA articles. Kevin Butler is one of the greatest players to wear the Red & Black at UGA.
Eight wins OR Champions of Life???
@JC3_NG: You've always been able to get a beer at the SECCG. Loge and Club Levels....
So either UGA or Bama is going to lose the SEC Championship and STILL go to the CFP?? They'd both have to be undefeated going into that game and even a close loss keeps one of them out perhaps. The LSU loss is what kept UGA out of the CFP last year IMO even with the SECCG blunder.
Les Miles replaced Saban at LSU...why not Bama?
If Florida never won another football game ever I'd be ok with that, but in the interest of fairness, McElwain did the right thing. From what I understand, PED's were not the only issue with Grier, plus the rumors his Father demanded he be the starting Qb when he came back from suspension, puts Coach Mac in a tough spot. Cam Newton stole a laptop and then logged onto the UF wifi with it using his own info and threw it out the window when campus security showed up....plus various other rumored academic investigations and numerous unpaid traffic tickets. Newton is from GA after all and was recruited as a TE. The two student athletes broke the law/rules and we're somehow faulting the coach? Don't forget Jenoris Jenkins comment when he was let go for smoking weed again..."If Coach Meyer was still here, I'd still be on the team". That's not the kind of atmosphere you want in your football program IMO. Should we expect 17-22 yr old men NOT to get in some trouble, sure, but we shouldn't hold the coach 100% totally accountable when these players make stupid decisions they KNOW have consequences. Newton went on to dubious circumstances at Auburn, Grier never even sat out his 6-game suspension when he transferred to WVU. At what point is looking the other way for on-field football success hurting your overall program. Mark Richt dismissed plenty of talented players who either broke the law or rules to the detriment of on-field success. Nick Marshall, Zach Mettenberger, Tray Matthews etc etc. Some UGA fans would rather tolerate the bad to get the good, I for one am glad CMR handled things the way he did. Kirby seems to be from the "Saban school" of handling things internally. Is it more effective? No way to know as I'm sure plenty of incidents at every school get handled under the radar. But I'm not going to judge CKS on the actions of student-athletes who know better and do dumb things anyway.
@ Geaux Long - Who's Mettenberger playing for this weekend???
Given the current climate at the NCAA, I highly doubt he'll be required to sit a year.
Why would AD McGarity agree to this!!! UGA went to Auburn back-to-back 2012 & 2013 with 2013 being "The Prayer at Jordan-Hare" game!! Auburn should have to return the "favor" the SEC scheduling office did for them. No way Kirby is OK with this.....
UGA beat Butch @ Tenn plenty of times....
