It's going to be interesting in 2020. Looks like Georgia and Alabama may be in better shape to restock their departed talent. Florida and Alabama both returning QB's with starting experience will help, especially early in the season. Georgia's Offensive overhaul both coaching and new players will be something to watch. The Defense may be truly elite. Alabama seems to be in the best shape, with LSU likely taking a step back, and especially with the early schedule. But there does seem to be more parity than in years before.
LSUSMC, you said LSU never said that is all there was" That meaning real money... Yet, this is the first report that came from a school official. "An LSU athletic official told The Advocate on Tuesday morning the money was not real." .................................................. The school is still looking into the matter, the official said later Tuesday, because although novelty bills were found on the field during the postgame celebration, it was unclear whether those were the bills Beckham was handing out. Do you really believe the school officials didn't know the truth by the next day?
LSUSMC. "The fake money comments are real" No. The fake money comment was an attempt to lie LSU's way out of a bad situation. Maybe there was some confusion because someone said they saw some fake money? But, at this point, who's really going to believe that? the University coming out with an official statement denying it really happened, was a very bad way to handle a bad situation. Makes it look like an acceptable practice in the eyes of LSU.
Got to laugh at LSU's statements on the matter. First "it wasn't real money" Then their QB tells the truth. Now, they try to cover their first statement with essentially saying "Apparent ca$h may have also been given." Got to love the "also" part of that statement. Makes it sound like Beckham gave some real Ca$h, and maybe the rest got Monopoly money. Unreal! LSU needs to own this and right now. Makes me wonder, who in their right mind would let a fool like Beckham in the locker room in the first place. It's like Cancer knocking on the door, introducing himself, and you say, come on in...
Georgia still has plenty of 4-5* offensive lineman, and all but 1 who played in the Sugar Bowl will return, and they did pretty well. Kirby knows how to recruit, and that means more 4-5* talent is already on the way. It's not going to be a great feat to at least equal the offensive production of 2019, and it may even be better. The defense will likely be better, and maybe even the best in CFB. No Dan Mullen offense has ever scored more than 17 points on any of Kirby's defenses since he came to UGA. What are the chances of that improving very much against the defense that Kirby's going to field in 2020... I sure hope most of the media keeps hyping Florida. I still like Kirby over Mullen...
TruTroll, you have already beat yourself. When will you get a life and grow up?
L G 88, Monken lead the NFL's best passing offense of 2018. Then he went to another team and produced the No.2 Rusher in the NFL, Nick Chubb. The man clearly knows how to produce according to the talent on hand.
DaGherk, I think you have it right. Got to give Smart credit. First he brings in a transfer QB, then a TE, and now what looks like a Grand Slam OC hire. Blue Chip high school talent, Quality Transfers, and good coaches. Nobody out recruits Kirby Smart. There are plenty of anybody but UGA fans out there. Not a good day for them.
Look out! This must be upsetting for those "Kirby can't" trolls. First Kirby goes out and gets a duel threat QB, and now a new OC. Monken’s Tampa Bay offense set records for total yards, passing yards and passing touchdowns. All this must be very upsetting for the anyone but Georgia crowd. I can't wait to see the offensive rebuild...
Wow! Beckham needs to be tested. Is he always like that? And, he needs to be in trouble for doing that to a Cop. Stupid...
Brock looks very accurate, and even while on the move. Has enough mobility to extend the play. Kirby wouldn't go wrong with him.
bayou tiger, it's also about the coaches. Did LSU's recruiting take a big step up since Orgeron replaced Miles? No, yet look at the recent results. Same talent, better coaching. Look at Ga- Florida during the Spurrier days. The talent was mostly equal. The results were heavily in Spurrier's favor. That was because Spurrier was better than those UGA coaches...
gatorpyp, because I can see no logical reason why anyone could think Mullen is a better coach. No division championships. 0-3 against Smart. Came to Athens (2017) and favored by most, with one of his last MS teams, and against Kirby's second, and still got routed 31-3. Mullen's supposed to be an offensive genius, yet his offenses have only scored 17 points in any game against Smart's defense. That's strength against strength. Mullen calling plays directly against Smart. Spurrier beat Georgia routinely, and many times with less talent. If Mullen had done the same, I could see the reasoning. As it is, I simply can't...
UF87, Kirby's second year (2017) most favored MS. It ended in a 31-3 route. There was no great recruiting advantage for Georgia. Yet he beat Mullen Look at last years game. This is from an article after the game. Coach Dan Mullen, who had to burn two timeouts on the game's opening drive, lost it when his guys couldn't get lined up properly in the fourth. Mullen started screaming at offensive assistant Billy Gonzales after calling another timeout. Mullen surely will be questioned about calling for a pass on a fourth-and-1 play on the opening drive. Trask threw incomplete, and it set the tone for the game. Smart had his team ready. Mullen clearly did not. Kirby also out-coached Mullen throughout the game. Mullen is an offensive coach. Kirby is Defense, yet Mullen's had no offense score more than 17 points against Smart since he came to Georgia. Spurrier beat Georgia plenty of times when the talent was equal, and plenty when GA had better talent. Why can't Mullen beat Georgia? I would think a better coach would...
Also, Fisher should be over Mullen. He has actually won division, conference, and even one of those National Championships. Now please tell us, this is finally going to be Mullen's year...
Wait! Everybody knows 0 for 3 (Head to head) Dan Mullen is a better coach than Kirby Smart, right? Every time I read how 'never won anything' Mullen is better than Smart, it cracks me up. I have still never read anything that points to why that could even be a possibility...
Altide, bitter? strange take. Were you one who was saying it was fake money just a few hours ago? "I'm not a student-athlete anymore so I can say ... yeah," Burrow said when asked if he received any. But you are not bitter. No, Alabama, Auburn and Ole Miss fans understand, and they have no problem with it... Honestly, I wish Kirby was paying players too. Only because not doing it puts UGA at a disadvantage.
It wasn't real! Got to hate it when a player tells the truth. Doesn't matter. The West is what it is, and nobody's going to do anything about it. Might as well just keep on making it rain...
Ferg20, Nobody's hoping the SEC West teams get in trouble. They all do it, and they all get away with it. That's just the way it is. That is with the exception of when the player admits it on tape, see Ole Miss. Kirby owns Malzahn, and he always will. But, every six years, Ole Gus gets lucky. How many years are left on that six year clock?
Another thing against UT is where the game comes on the schedule. If it was very early in the season, maybe they could take advantage of the attrition. As it will be, the Dawg's offense will be rolling and they'll be backed up by maybe the best defense in CFB. Oh yeah, and it's in Athens GA. Then, the gap will be measured..
The Georgia offense could go either way in 2020. They did lose a lot of talent, but the positive is that the O under performed largely due to injuries. Point being, matching the offensive production is not an insurmountable endeavor. There are still 5 and 4 star's on the O-line. The receiver corps will be more talented and deeper, and there will be a highly thought of Senior transfer under center. The talent gap between UGA and UT is still very much in GA's favor.
There's always going to be a few socialist want to be Dems in the crowd, but to say the "The reception was mixed" seems a stretch and an attempt to be politically correct. All I heard was Cheers of USA and four more years. That was a pro Trump crowd, and it wasn't even close.
Cody, yeah! Like Alabama has never been caught in any pay for play. Because they won NC's. So they never paid players. Nothing to see here, just move along. Flawless logic indeed.
Where do you buy fake cash? I bet someone at LSU did a quick search and sent someone to fetch some to show the NCAA boys. What is it with these SEC West teams and paying players? But, it seems to be working...
I think the this top 15 is about right. I like Georgia's chances at top 5, because of the defense which may be the best in CFB. They lost a ton on offense, but the offense had a down year, and GA still finished No.4. With much more talent and depth at receiver/TE, and a likely Senior starter at QB, I see no reason to think the offensive production will take a negative slide. MY question is will the offense improve with a new starter at QB?
What's your point? Lawrence had a bad night, against maybe the best them of the last 20 years or so, so he is overrated? He's not that good - so throw the rankings out? What did Lawrence padding his stats in the ACC have to do with the outcome of last years NCG? Nothing, he was the best QB on the field, and was playing for the better team. Newman being ranked the No.3 returning QB is impressive if for no other reason than he has that ranking despite the lack of talent of almost every other player on his offense. Maybe Newman's overrated, maybe not. But his supporting cast is about to get much better. Maybe we should see what he can do with it, before we start wishing out loud...
One thing is a constant in CFB. Alabama fans wishing against Kirby Smart and Georgia. Newman is the No.3 rated returning QB, but he "is not the answer." Well, now we know... Just be glad Newman and the young receivers will only have two games to learn the system before they show up in Tuscaloosa. That gives Bama a much needed edge. It won't be the same if (when) Bama makes the SECCG. I bet Kirby gets his team there... That is if they can get by LSU and Auburn...
Joe Burrow was better, and Lawrence had an off night. LSU had better receivers and DB's coming into the game, and that was the real difference.
There is something seriously off with the culture that's leading Ole Miss football. From the whole Hugh Freeze "if you have evidence of my cheating bring it forward" all the while everybody with the program up to the AD proclaiming Freeze to be the best Christian in CFB, to the hiring of Matt Luke to try and repair their image. Now they hire Lane Kiffin, and next comes Durkin. How long before they start buying players again?
