Money always talks. Always.
We never seriously had a shot against LSU, and that was before the decimation of the sorry excuse we call our receiving corps. LSU is LOADED this year and the game played out exactly as I called it. Offense is lousy, defense is elite and does their best to keep it close, eventually wears down and Georgia got no turnovers early to flip the script. They needed to cash in at EVERY opportunity and they went bust doing the same thing on offense that has happened all year. This defense paired with the 2017 offense would've been a different ball game but we aren't in 2017. Dawgs have to eat this loss and this time not fail to show up in the Sugar or Citrus against whoever they play next. And the minute LSU's season is over, THE MINUTE IT IS, they need to back a fat truck of cash up to Joe Brady's desk and hire him as OC before LSU does. And then Kirby needs to let him do his job and not meddle with the process.
He left because Tennessee was willing to pay him more money than Georgia was. Literally nothing more.
Come on man. Saban has an entire hand decorated in NC rings at Alabama. You're seriously saying his comments post Auburn would keep you from wanting him to coach Georgia? GTFOH. That logic is dumb AF.
This is asinine. I have been waiting with adoring patience for the downfall of Alabama or at least being able to catch them napping once in a while but Georgia hasn't beaten Alabama in over a decade. It is fool's gold to assume the run is over. This is like saying the Patriots are washed up after they lost to the Texans on Sunday. Heck, the dynasty was over in 2010, 2013, 2014 and 2016. Oh, and last year too. *eyeroll* As long as Saban roams the sideline at Bryant Denny, Alabama is a serious threat until proven (beyond a game or two) otherwise. I've fallen for this ruse far too many times before.
If you got smoked by the only two ranked teams you faced all season, you should be grateful you only fell to 12th.
Can defense still win championships? Kirby Smart describes how this unit compares to others he’s coached
This defense absolutely could win a championship, provided it was paired with something that even remotely resembled an offense.
Saban followed up 9-7 with 6-10 and bailed. Drew Brees or no Drew Brees, Saban wussed out and ran to Alabama before finding out if he ever would've made it big in the NFL or not.
So homie, you peaced out after Georgia got the #5 spot and OSU got #6. So you're complaining that you got to be the 2nd loser instead of the 1st loser. Am I understanding that correctly? Final rankings, 5th and 6th literally are no different. Both went to a New Year's Six, neither went to the playoffs.
Catholics v Convicts was not coined by the Hurricanes. ND is far from a clean and wholesome program that would pass on Meyer because of his reputation.
Is he, really tho? Is any Alabama fan steaming? They hardly paid for that loss at home and not having any quality wins, and yet right now they're the best non playoff team in the country. This sets up perfectly for them to do the exact same BS they got gifted in 2011 and 2017.
I wouldn't have Georgia at 4 either though. Neither Georgia nor Alabama should be top 4. Alabama had one real game to play this year so far, and they lost it. And it looked pretty ugly for 30 minutes. A. That's too much pressure right now. B. That SC loss just got a lot worse. They're in danger of not making a bowl game now, and Georgia lost to them.
Why do they ALWAYS get the benefit of the doubt? The only time Alabama really got punished properly for a loss was 2015 to Ole Miss when they fell all the way to 13th. They still won the title from 13th. So why do they slide two spots for the same sort of performance against LSU?
And then in two weeks they'll have to play even better than THAT just to get past Auburn. I won't be surprised if Jake Fromm sees ghosts at Jordan Hare, since Georgia got their rears zipped last time they were there.
Big 10 East is supposedly the 2nd best division outside of the SEC West. That's debatable this year because Michigan State isn't on their A game, but a division featuring Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State and Michigan State is not exactly a cakewalk.
Yeah. Georgia ain't winning it all this year. We were never truly in the race with all the turnover at receiver. I'm just hoping we retain a chunk of the defense that's playing lights out right now, so that they can make a push next year. Tua will be gone so that's one less lethal threat Georgia has to worry about.
Good. Now I don't have to keep downloading roster updates every July just to feel like I'm playing NCAA Football 2020 instead if 2014. That got old quick. I maybe made it a year.
I can't wait for Ohio Flake to lose so I can stop hearing about what people think of Justin Fields as if he is somehow still Georgia's quarterback. He chose to leave and burn the school down on his way out. F him and his team.
Very true. Forgot about that.
Florida and the SEC were on two consecutive GameDay appearances. Of course they aren't covering the Cocktail Party.
Tennessee (excuse me, SmokeyHumperU, to speak your brand of humor) was a far more consistent threat back then than South Carolina is today. Back in the early and mid 2000s, Georgia, Florida and Tennessee could stand toe to toe with anything the West could throw at us. Before Alabama came storming back in 2009 to save the day, the East had a 12-6 edge in the SEC Title game.
Ok, I definitely laughed out loud.
Why isn't LSU #1?
You're not reading it right. They're saying the only other ranked on ranked matchup the day of Bama LSU is Georgia Missouri. CBS only broadcasts one prime time game a year. Game of the Century in 2011 made sure that Bama LSU had that spot locked up for years to come, despite Bama winning every matchup since Game of the Century.
SC put the rest of the East on notice last weekend. I get what Steele is saying but I highly doubt Florida just outright doesn't know what SC is capable of now. If you want to pick an upset game for the Gators in the future, it wouldn't be Carolina. It would be Missouri.
That's not true. I fully acknowledged one of the few serious strengths USC has is the interior D line. I watched y'all make a mess against Alabama and put Tua on the deck more than once. So to keep running it up the middle shorthanded at RB at the strength of your defense may have worked for a half if the goal was to soften them up. But to be doing the same thing with 8 minutes left in the 4th and that interior D line still holding up, that's a failure on Smart to adjust. The USC D was a known strength. Even if Georgia were to win, I knew a 21 point spread was a stupid line to cover because USC almost always plays Georgia tough. Excuses? Maybe. But there is no excuse losing to an unranked 2-3 team at home playing their third string QB. SC just flat out played harder for longer and won the game.
Yes. And that's an issue. He was the defensive coordinator at Alabama since the Book of Genesis, and now wants to call offensive plays? Nah fam. He needs to relinquish that post entirely, and continue to lock in on the defensive side of the ball. Let the OC create his magic on his side of the ball. Maybe then we wouldn't be going run run pass on 3rd and long all day.
Dabo Swinney mocks Stephen A. Smith with impersonation after ESPN host questions Clemson’s soft schedule
It is hilarious how much you don't know about college football. LSU's offense is so far legit this year. They're ranked 3rd in the entire country.
OMG, it was one game. Clemson has ONE bad game and suddenly their world is crashing down. Get real.
It was botched from the start but Notre Dame was alotted X amount of tickets as visitors. Georgia shouldn't have oversold the stadium but thems the breaks when you try showing up for the biggest home game in over a decade an hour before kick. That was foolish on the student's part.
