Surprisingly good read.
This headline was click bait but Kelly makes a very good point. The defense has been very vanilla all year and I’m not convinced it needs to be anything more than that agaihst notre dame. We have far more depth and talent, so as long as they execute it’s no need to have a complicated scheme. Do your job.
Next time instead of posting something like this, just have a glass of whiskey.
I fully get that Auburn has home field advantage, and that the last time Georgia and Fromm rolled in there they got smacked...As an Auburn grad student at that time....I never got to live it down (until the SECCG) HOWEVER Stidham and Kerryon are not walking through that door. That offense needs to improve fast before I'm sold that the game is close. If we get by Notre Dame, I'm more concerned by TAMU. It's the perfect "trap" game right after the high of that Auburn game. TAMU has nothing to lose, and everything to prove.
Neat fact about LSU, Georgia beat notre dame last time at notre dame. Bout the only relevant fact. Nice try though.
No team looks complete, but there are a couple of them who don't look like they'll lose anytime soon. As far as Jake Fromm goes, I agree with the analysis, but I'm not worried about it. I don't think it's a timing thing as far as chemistry goes, I think it's just Fromm underestimating his receivers' speed and being a tick off. It'll correct itself, but I'm not confident it'll matter because I don't see Notre Dame stopping a full game of Swift.
Almost every school jumps for joy at a conference championship ......Especially in the SEC since it's pretty much guarantees an NC berth (in the BCS) or a playoff berth (currently) The Floor expectation at Georgia is to win the SEC. The floor expectation for Florida is to win the East. So you're correct, the expectations are quite different.
Bro stfu about Florida. Holy.....
I actually agree with him on the ND over Auburn, though maybe for different reasons. If we can gauge it off fans and media (we can't but that's all we have to work with here) UGA is gonna dogwalk ND. That means Georgia is more likely to overlook ND, than they are Auburn. Has ZERO to do with Auburn, and everything to do with ND.
I'm trying to pinpoint your tone. You say hump as if they didn't just win the SEC championship. It's less of an SEC championship hump to be frank, it's an Alabama hump. What, they're 0-4 vs bama the last few meetings including 2 SECCG?
Isn't UGA 22-2 and the last two regular seasons? Losses to Auburn and LSU?
Yeah there was zero contradiction here.
This is pretty egomaniacal. You can be a real fan and miss home games. I’ve had far more fun sitting in front of a tv in my friends apartment watching the Georgia Auburn game (I’m a Georgia fan at auburn for graduate school ) arguing with them and laughing than I ever had in the stadium. Mind you I’ve not gotten to see any really good games, they’ve all been lopsided plus I have little rooting interest for auburn outside of getting to roll toomers corner. Which is a blast and you don’t have to be at the game to do it.
I attend Auburn for graduate school, is it that the alumni tailgates aren’t really on campus anymore? Because we tailgate all over campus and especially in front of our comp sci building right off Magnolia
But he is...... Touchback ratio, doesn't miss PATs....no he didn't have the best accuracy stats last year, but that's misleading. It's not like he went 10/20......
I think your comment on the talent gap is a little off. This Junior class is the first full draft eligible class, that's went under a full recruiting cycle under Kirby. I want to say it's the same for coach O too. This list might change by the end of the year. I will speak on Georgia, because I mostly know Georgia, but I wouldn't be surprised to see JR Reed or Lecounte start to appear on some of thees lists after a good year. To better explain my point, this is the first draft eligible class that's gone under a full cycle of Kirby, Coach O. I don't think this is indicative of a current talent gap, I think we are just now starting to see players develop under these new regimes.
I wish Murf was still here....y'all lists are terrible and he would have put together a much better list because HE ACTUALLY KNOWS FOOTBALL. He has Etienne and Swift 1 and 2, but he seems to favor Swift because not only does Swift have breakaway speed he had top end speed. Etienne gets caught from behind a lot. Not only that, you have true freshman on the list...and that's just...terrible
This list is focusing on those who are full time play callers. That's why it makes note that Pruitt will be giving up duties, and that Wilcoz is one of the few HC who also calls defensive plays. Everyone knows Saban's and Smart's fingerprints are all over that defense, but the reason for having DC/OC is to relieve yourself of some of those responsibilities. The HC gets the final word, but the DCs at bama and Georgia have been calling the plays. The article makes no criteria for the pickings, true, but if you pay attention to the paragraphs about each selection it becomes apparent that the criteria is that they had to have been the primary playcaller in 2018.
This bias right here is ridiculous. You can make the argument he should be top 10, true. But seeing as there's already an RB in the top 10, and i'd take that rb over him.....He's fine right where he is.
Yeah....you're basing it off stats and not actual impact. You all missed the stats of how many touch backs he kicked on kickoffs, or his accuracy on go-ahead field goals. Or his accuracy on clutch time....etc..etc.. I don't know the exact numbers.....but context is everything.
As DSGB already have mentioned, using receivers as an example is a poor comparison. DT at bama is generally stacked with talent and usually more polished than an incoming 4 star. I might be wrong but I don’t think a true freshman has started for Saban at that spot ? At least not recently
I like that pitch. But to focus on the story, I don't think Saban gave the right pitch to Stackhouse. If the kid lives up to his billing, he's likely to be a year one starter at GA and will get to the NFL. I don't know Bama's depth chart projection for the next couple of years, but I don't believe it'll be the same path there. For better or for worse.
I mostly agree with this. This is how we end up with lopsided bowl games. It's late, but one that comes to mind is that 2007(i think) Hawaii team. Finally play someone 'proven' and it's not even close. I think there should be more regulation with Power 5 non-conference games, but I'm not sure how you'd be able to do that.
With Jeremiah Holloman gone, Georgia is attempting to do something that no team has in the Playoff era
D-Rob has 837 receiving yards in his career. No he doesn't have any experience at UGA, or in the SEC, but he does have experience. :)
Gotta agree with WDE here. Being a Senior doesn't mean you have a lot of senior either.
There's always a few at every program. Esp top programs. What's your point?
I really really REALLY wish some my fellow Georgia fans WOULD STOP MENTIONING MULLEN EVERY DAGUM POST. But in relation to the actual article... It'll be tough to lose that experience outside. He was really good on 50/50 balls. But- That being said. Almost every last one of those receivers who left made impacts in some form as Freshman. With all of the talent at the position, I don't doubt we will see some playmakers emerge. Just how long is the question. Notre Dame? TAMU? Florida? Auburn? We will have to see.
That doesn't mean it's not loaded. It's loaded with talent, just no experience.
Recruiting is a part of being a college coach though. It is a major factor and part of why some NFL coaches would rather be an assistant than a HC in college.
