Coach Cochran did a good job with ST last year especially considering it was without the benefit of Spring practice. Coach Discher looks like another great addition. I can't wait to see what Cochran can do in year two.
Judging from how Monken called games last season, some games were much more run heavy, while others were more balanced, I think it will depend on what's working better. Especially against Clemson. Clemson will have a good to great defense. Monken will try to find the biggest weaknesses and that will dictate the gameplan.
The drop-off from 2008 to 2009 was because of Tebow's lack of passing accuracy as much as not having Harvin. A great receiver makes a less accurate QB look much better than he really is.
I'm too young to remember Spurrier as a player. It would be Danny Wuerffel for me. Harvin was great, but Wuerffel was just on a different level for his time as a passing QB. Tebow was a very good college QB, but not accurate enough as a passer and not near as good as Wuerffel.
Kirby develops them well enough to be 3-1 against Mullen. And it's going to be 4-1 the next time they play, so Kirby's got that going for him...
I don't blame Florida fans. All the stars aligned up and Mullen was finally able to beat Kirby Smart. Kirby will make it 4 wins to Mullen's 1 in the head to head matchups this year. Might as well get everything you can out of it while you still can.
TopsailDawg. I don't feel the need for any condescending closing remarks. I'll just say, to each his own, and best of luck...
TopsailDawg, I don't need to reread it. I read it the first time. I know better. Masks? Do you really think they're very effective? There's a reason why Firefighters, those who work in Haz-Mat and around contagious diseases wear Positive pressure masks. It keeps the bad stuff out via. positive pressure. The masks argument is laughable. You breath around them as much as through them. You just keep wearing yours. I don't unless I enter a building where I have to. And, you better get used to wearing it. There are those in our Government who will find a new reason to continue wearing them even after the China virus has ran it's course...
The Moderna and Pfiz vaccines are given as a preventative... Based on evidence from clinical trials, the Moderna vaccine was 94.1% effective at preventing laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 illness in people who received two doses who had no evidence of being previously infected. The vaccine appeared to have high effectiveness in clinical trials (efficacy) among people of diverse age, sex, race, and ethnicity categories and among persons with underlying medical conditions. Also, the vaccines are given to help the population reach herd immunity. Herd immunity, or community immunity, is when a large part of the population of an area is immune to a specific disease. If enough people are resistant to the cause of a disease, such as a virus or bacteria, it has nowhere to go. While not every single individual may be immune, the group as a whole has protection. This is because there are fewer high-risk people overall. The infection rates drop, and the disease peters out. Herd immunity protects at-risk populations. These include babies and those whose immune systems are weak and can’t get resistance on their own.
The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are both 97% effective. If you're going to allow anyone in, and some programs will, wouldn't it be safer to have more people who have a 97% chance of not contracting it.
Some college (UGA) should realize what a golden PR opportunity they have staring them in the face. Invite all the Vaccinated Doctors, Nurses, Fire-EMT and the rest of the 'frontline' workers and the elderly to attend the Spring game. Provide a verified proof of being vaccinated, and allow those people in. Hundreds of thousands of Doctors, Nurses, Fire and Police, and many more have already been vaccinated, not to mention the elderly. Why not allow these people (many of which have stayed on the job at great risk) to safely attend the Spring games. Same for the Masters…
Florida's Governor is handling the China virus very well. Thousands will be fully vaccinated by the time the game comes around. There's no reason why they can't 'Pack the Swamp' for the game. Provide those who've been fully vaccinated with proof of being vaccinated and allow them to attend the Spring games. Hundreds of thousands of Doctors, Nurses, Fire and Police, and many more have already been vaccinated, not to mention the elderly. Why not allow these people (many of which have stayed on the job at great risk) to safely attend the Spring games. Same for the Masters...
Texas Taz Man. You would think they would go to coach Smart and see if he wanted to issue his own punishment, rather than put a felony on the kids record. But, the UGA Police don't show much if any favoritism to the football players.
Unless the charges get dropped, it looks like another roster spot will be coming available. I hate it for Demetris. I hope he gets to play and finally lives up to his billing.
Mountain Dog. Good point. Our VP has a special get out of jail free pass for those people. Doesn't matter what they did...
'Snowflake righties' Do you also believe in Bigfoot? There is no such thing as a snowflake rightie. Who gets mad about a cup? Nobody I know. But, I don't know anybody who would get triggered by the name of a sports team. The only problem with Starbucks is they are ran by brainwashed Socialist-Fascist-Liberal Snowflakes.
The DS, if GA doesn't win it this year statement is ridiculous. The offense is in good hand. The QB position is set for years. Kirby always produces a good defense. People seem to forget Kirby's a first time HC in his 6th year. He's only going to get better. If he was in Ohio st of Clemson's position he would be making the play-offs 3 out of 4 years...
Georgia has a lot going for them, but they also have a huge question to be answered at CB. Starting two first time players at CB, is not ideal. Especially with the first game against Clemson. Their Qb has some experience and he's a good passer.
There is a simple and safe way to actually fill every SEC stadium to full capacity for the Spring games. Hundreds of thousands will have been fully vaccinated by the time the Spring games roll around. Simply provide those people with proof of being vaccinated, and allow them to buy the tickets. It would be a great way to say thank you to so many healthcare workers, Fire and EMT, teachers, and many more who stayed on the front lines of the epidemic. It would also help the economy. I hope the SEC does everything they can to allow as many as possible to fill the stadiums for the Spring games. This would work...
jay, forgive me if I decide to defend Kirby, against a false narrative. Whatever you believe, or don't believe about all the unusual workings of Fields to OS, much of it was not of the norm for a QB who wanted to transfer, simply because of a lack of playing time... This writer has never even acknowledged that. It's a BS way to take a swipe at Kirby, and he's done it over and over again.
Can't have enough great D-Tackles. Great pick up for the Dawgs!
jay, I don't think so. Fields was given a 'Special' transfer waver. One that most didn't get. With Fields being handed the job, that left Tate Martel riding the bench. That wasn't a good look for Ohio St. Might want to clean that up ASAP. Martel requested a waver, again one that most didn't get. But guess what, the NCAA decided to clean up their own mess, by giving another Buckeye QB another 'special' waver. Bad narrative averted. Meyer was out as the OS coach. The cupboard was bare at the QB position. Martel didn't pan out at his next school, either. Where would have Ohio St been without Fields. Where does that leave the B1G? Not competitive. The dots all align up. Someone at OS went to the NCAA and said we have a player who's interested, but only if he can be immediately eligible. Just connect the dots.... Unless you think money, ratings, etc. aren't at the top of the NCAA's motivations list.
"He already watched 2 former 5-star quarterbacks leave and succeed elsewhere. The last thing he wants is for Vandagriff to join that club." I do believe Eason was succeeded and therefore decided to leave. Moreover, Fromm had much more success. So, what was your point? The other one was essentially poached through an illegally sanctioned NCAA deal designed to prop up Ohio ST and therefore the B1G. Don't you think it's time to update that false narrative...
hbobodraw, Worst case, either Vandagriff or Stockton transfer. Kirby gets to keep the other top recruits that came in with him in the same signing class. Where's the downside?
Aubie 108, If Georgia was in a situation like Ohio St or Clemson, I could agree. Getting to the SECCG is almost every year is almost a reality. There's that team named Alabama, and they do a pretty good job of recruiting as well. Teams like LSU, Auburn and Florida have seasons where the team comes together. How many Championships had Saban won by year 6? Kirby's just getting started. Georgia's time is coming.
Also, I think many rival fans read a Georgia fan talking about Athens as being special, and assume it's just fan talk. The city and campus do help in the process.
