Hopefully he will teach him that on the last play of the game, all you have to do is knock the ball down. :)
Dude, I can't stop laughing...I'm sorry, I do not keep up with UT... Which ex-coach would that be? The one that was fired? The one that was on CMR's staff and made the mistake of following BoBo to CSU or the coach that got a big promotion and a LOT of money? What would you expect a new coach to say?National Championship game loss in overtime against Alabama - yeah, ok, we're soooo embarrassed.We had two juniors declare for the draft. UT has 3.QB - how awful... A 5 Star gets beat out by a 4 Star that leads them to the SEC East Championship, SEC Championship and the National Championship game. And also faced with the #2 or #1 player (not just QB) - player in the country coming in to push for time.Coaches taking the plunge - for promotions... That is what happens to successful programs. But you couldn't relate, being that UT is on it's 4th coach in 10 years.Recruits - ? Use your head. Look at the players that have decommitted. Look at where they fell in the pecking order and the timing. They were encourage 'early enough' in the recruiting process to go find a sure thing. Georgia didn't have the room.Recruiting Ranking - yep, it's awful... OSU moved in front of Georgia in the 247 ranking. They may keep it - they may not. UGA is still number one according to ESPN. They may keep it - they may not. It's terrible... By the way, UT is #16 and #20 with the same two services.Gurley - Yes, he is so embarrassed to be a Dawg. Making several trips back to Athens and hanging with the team out in LA. during the Rose BowlFor what it's worth, I think CJP will work hard to make UT relevant again. But it's a much tougher task than it used to be. UF will come up much faster than UT (sorry, they have the instate talent to make it happen quicker). UGA isn't going anywhere. South Carolina is greatly improved and Kentucky is no longer that 'easy out' they were in the past. Add to it, the UT has to play UF and UGA and Alabama 'every year' - it just makes it a very difficult path to get back to Atlanta. (Back in the Fulmer days, UT only had to get by Florida and hold their own against a much weaker Bama program). Rules are very different now.. Not to mention the recruiting disadvantage that UT has verses UGA and UF- maybe even USC.Maybe this was written just to 'tweak' the Dawg Nation or maybe you really are just this stupid... Either way, it appears that you still are not 'getting' what is going on at UGA. Last 3 classes 10, 3 and either 2 or 1... Look for a consistent top '5' recruiting class landing in Athens with a superb coaching staff, more $ invested in support staff than any other SEC school (Including Alabama) and with facilities that take a back seat to no one. And in a 'talent rich' football state. UGA could never leave the state and recruit quite well.I'll take my Dawgs over your Vols year in and year out... "Friends don't let Friends wear Orange"
Frankly, I think that 7 year contract will prove to be the biggest mistake Auburn Athletics has made in years. Auburn lost 3/4's of their O-Line and their core of their running backs. Georgia and LSU proved that if you take their running game away that they are venerable to getting beat and potentially beaten badly.Auburn has lost 7 out of their last 10 to both Alabama and Georgia. And 10 out of their 15 to Georgia. They are at Georgia and at Alabama next year. They have Washington, Texas A*M, LSU and MSU on their schedule next year.Conclusion: He must be beating the drum for 2019 or later, but I really do not see Alabama or Georgia weakening anytime soon, while LSU and A*M will both likely get much better.
Replace UGA with UT and your statement has a much higher chance of actually coming true.
Nobody should hang their heads after this game. Proud of the University, Proud of this team, proud of the coaching staff and proud of the fan base...This is just the beginning...
I was gonna light you up; but your just a punk kid... So we'll keep it at "thank you for your service to your country"
Congrats to the Tide Nation. Great game. Speaks well of the team to come back from a 13-0 deficit at the half. Thought we might just pull it out when it was 2nd and 26th in Overtime.Enjoy the win. Well deserved...Guessing we'll be seeing each other again in about 11 months...
It will take a couple of years; but the SEC got a LOT better with the coaching changes. With that said, CKS really is turning UGA into the 'monster' that the talent in this state has always given it the potential to be.Go Dawgs!
I think Auburn's D will keep it within reason. Defense is emotional and UA has a LOT of kids on that team from the state of Georgia. And they are talented and well coached. But they also are a little undisciplined at times and when you add in emotion, personal fouls, etc. tend to pop up.Will look similar to the South Carolina game from a week ago....Nothing but respect for the Tigers; but this Georgia team is not a CMR team. It is focused, disciplined and talented and well coached. In the past, UGA would likely lose a game of this magnitude (even with winning 9 of the last 11 against Auburn). But not this team.Georgia will move the ball. I hope they continue to under estimate Fromm, like everyone else. I would not be surprised to see a balanced attack that chews clock. I think Auburn will hit on the occasional big play, but will struggle to move the ball consistently and I expect at least two turn overs from their offense.Special Teams are pretty even...UGA 24 Auburn 14 or 17.
Mizzou has consistently gotten better over the last four or five games. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Tigers win this game With this said, they do have three things going against them. (1) Change in Coach - this can go good or bad, but Randy Shannon is the right personality to make this into a positive. (2) Games are about match ups... Mizzou's strength is their passing game, and it happens to be right up against Florida's stength - defense against the pass...
BamaTime - do not confused this team with MSU... UGA is much deeper in talent and has much better High School talent than Mississippi or Alabama. Nothing but respect for what Saban has done at Bama. The program deserves all the accolades it receives. I even understand the arrogance that tends to come from most Tide Alumni and Fans - but the MSU reference indicates a 'big time' misunderstanding between the two programs. We'll see what happens this year (plenty of games still to play) - but you might want to get used to Georgia pushing Alabama for the top spot... Have a great week!
dvhill100 hit it... All this talk about who is number one doesn't matter. Both have to keep winning and if they do, they'll likely be 1 and 2 when meeting in Atlanta. Even if they are 1 and 3 or 1 and 4 or 2 and 3 (all unlikely if they both win out - meaning 1 and 2) - the winner moves to 1.CKS has the right approach - like Saban - one game at a time. One game at a time... And Auburn is a very talented football team getting UGA and Bama at home. MSU appears to be the best 'other threat' for Bama - Tech for Georgia. But the road to a shot at a National Championship really does run through Auburn first for both...Regardless of how this shakes out; UGA is on the trajectory we had all hoped for with Coach Smart. This year needed to be a very good to great year to help the recruiting momentum. Top 5 class (with more kids being added) with the number 1 QB, number 1 and number 3 running backs in the nation coming in. Finally consistently getting elite O-Linemen (and that's what has really been missing), you have to work hard to quickly get to 'reload' mode. This class just might allow UGA to do just that...
UF Coaches have their own problems. Miami and FSU are sucking up a LOT of the in state talent. He's going to have t win that battle first...
But I will say this. USC will likely beat UF this year...
Grundy is a OSU Graduate. He's home and isn't going anywhere. The guy I would go after is the Clemson DC Brent Venables. He is a very good recruiter and already has great relationships in the states of Georgia and Florida (two states that UT HAS to recruit well in order to be successful). The risk you have there is when Saban decides to walk away. It's Dabo's job if he wants it. And if Brent is showing some success at UT - Clemson might be tempted to bring him back. Here's the other factor that really hasn't been asked. Can UT afford to write off $25MM in guaranteed salaries? Four years ago the athletic program was $200MM in debt. Have they managed to pay all of that off? Let's be generous and say they have paid all but $75MM off. That means your about to add another $25MM to the pile and turn around and sign a coach to a 5 year deal and his assistants to at least two years a piece. Yet another reason for getting the quality assistant verses the big name like Chip Kelly... Time will tell...
We have our fair share of idiots too... Just punk frat kids... Equating that to the Vol Nation makes no sense... With that said, "man have we been unlucky on that field"... Tons of injuries, especially to our running backs over the years...
Solid logic. It's not like he is in his 2nd or 3rd year with the program. UT should have won the East last year with the talent they put on the field and a Senior QB and building off that momentum.
Agree... CJM should be far up that list... UT outplayed the Gators and lost due to their own mistakes. I realize that is coaching, but I think we are starting to see that the Gators may not have the teeth we thought they did. And I say that, knowing that we still know very little about my Dawgs. So I'm not trashing the Gators, they just have a much better sample to look at in their games verses Michigan and Tennessee. I believe they will lose to Kentucky this weekend.
Vandy is solid, but this game is over well before the 4th Quarter. Bama by 30.UF should have lost last week. Kentucky by 3.Georgia's Defense Rises to the Occasion and Georgia's Return Teams Prove to be the difference. UGA by a TD over a very good MSU team.
Having the mantra of 'friends don't let friends wear Orange', I had no Dawg in the UF/UT game. And while there was some nice 'Karma' in how UT lost, I thought they were superior to UF. In other words, UF didn't beat UT - UT beat UT. So it wouldn't surprise me to see Kentucky defeat Florida this weekend.I'm really glad MSU took it to LSU. That should get my Dawgs attention. This is a game that I've been concerned about all year. With UT being the next week, was afraid that the players might be peaking ahead a week. I know CKS is working on installing 'the process' brought from Saban, but that takes time. If we have Eason starting I would be less concerned, but a Freshman QB makes Freshman mistakes and Fromm has proven to do just that. A more veteran QB could 'hurry' up plays, etc. Grantham (love him or hate him) knows the game, but he tends to over complicate his defenses and can be 'slow' to get the right players on the field. (NFL level stuff )... If UGA can keep the same players on the field when they like the match ups and move the ball quickly, that will negate that stuff. But with a Frosh at QB that's difficult to do. Finally, while UGA'S line is much better (you can go nowhere but up), it still is unproven and the smallest in the conference. I think MSU will load the box (just like everybody else has) and dare Georgia to throw. We hit a few successful passes and we are off to the races. This will be the 2nd QB of four games that UGA faces that played their HS ball in the state of Georgia (a little extra motivation) and his only shot at the Dawgs. MSU and UGA will not play for 7 more years. Georgia needs to get to him 'early and often' to keep him from getting on track. I think we'll find out 'a lot' about both these teams. Georgia has looked on Defense and Special Teams, but the offensive line is still a question mark. MSU has looked dominate, but it's hard to tell what that really means, since LSU is proving not to be the LSU of yester-years... On paper - this game could go either way...
Godwin had a strong game. Eason still needs to work on accuracy and touch, but had much better command of the offense.Fromm looked very comfortable, considering that he's been on campus 4 months. Some big catches were made during the day. The line did nothing to prove they are any better than a year ago. Looking forward to the Freshmen getting into camp. Running game struggled (Chubb and Michel did not touch the ball 5 times between though). Defense was missing two key running stoppers and the running game was 'average' at best. To be fair, the offensive player calling was 'vanilla', which is typical of a spring game. Kicking game was sketchy, but the punting was much better and consistent.
He took an absolute beating last year. He basically ran for his life about 1/2 the timme.O-Line improvement, a full year under his belt. Had a chance to let his arm and his mind rest after a crazy three years or so.I expect the game to slow down and for him to be very good this coming fall.
Outside of Vandy, the range in size of school really doesn't come into play. But even in that case, they are the size of a Miami. Kentucky surprised me a little; I thought they might be a little smaller. And UT was smaller than expected.
If I'm a Gator, I would yawn, and just assume the East is mine. Totally get that.. They have dominated my Dawgs since Darth Visor went back to Gainesville in the mid 80's. And if your a VOL, you are telling yourself that you have beaten the Dawgs two years in a row and the game is at home this year.At the end of the day, it really depends on how quickly the O-Line comes around. I don't care how talented you are, you can't hit passes laying on your back and your running backs are not going to have good days if they are met in the backfield 1/2 the time. That's the bottom-line... It's a different league, but would just crack up when everyone was talking about the 'much improved' Matt Ryan... We'll that's what happens when you go out and get an All-Pro Center that jells your O-Line... Nobody talks about it; but the O-Line and the Kicking Game have to be in place, if your going to win Championships and Georgia hasn't had either since 2012.I do believe that Georgia will win the East; but will not get past Alabama to advance in 2017. (You never know - a lucky bounce here and there and it could be a special year). But with that said, 2018 is the realistic year where UGA has a chance to turn the corner and to begin to potentially dominate the East and become a conference champion and potentially live there a while. (And by the way, the East is getting better - Kentucky and South Carolina especially come to mind; there is still plenty of talent in Rocky Top and UF is UF)..
I think your right catsfan14... Kentucky earned that number 8 spot. I also think anything under 10-2 before the bowl and Auburn will toss Malzahn. A.D. isn't known for is patience and Auburn has been 'owned' by Bama and UGA for quite sometime now. We will see about the Dawgs; they took giant steps not only with the quality of the class, but needs filled, especially with the O-Line. If the O-line grows up quick enough - look out .... No qualms with the Top 7 and I think that is the group that will end up in the Top 7. And the order is very fair... Will be a lot of fun seeing how it ends up..
I supported CMR until the day he left and truly hope he does well in Miami. With that said, he left the offensive line in shambles. It has gotten worse each year since 2012. Nobody was going to win the East with that line. If your running backs are being met in the backfield 30 to 50 percent of the time in each game and your very young QB is finds himself hurried or on the ground much more than the average SEC QB - your going to be challenged to be successful. Add to it, a Rookie Head Coach, a shaky kicking game (though it did see great improvement during the year - but that miss at the beginning of the Tech game is the difference in a win/loss) - your going to lose 4 to 6 games. Talented linemen coming in, a 5 Star LM being redshirted, a year under CKS's belt, almost everybody coming back in key positions - Georgia will be much better next year. And 'no', I do not believe CMR would have won the East this year with the OL that Georgia put on the field. With all of that said... Better beat the Dawgs in the upcoming year - after that, all bets are off...
Really do not spend a lot of time on UT. We are still in the mist of figuring out our own problems. But have to believe that the Peyton Manning as OC or Coach has to be popping up by now. I doubt he would want to put in that kind of work; but the UT folks can dream can't they.
