What a sorry excuse for a human being. Seemed fine signing at Georgia when things were going his way. Now that there's turnover, he wants to cry and use his dad as an excuse for early eligibility? FOH. He should sit because he didn't lose any part of his pinky. His father's the moron that can't work a chair properly.
I'm torn. The man needs to do for himself what he feels is right. That's okay. I never fully believed he thought himself a Dawg though. He talked mad trash towards the Vols, and the Vols base talked trash towards him for his decision that went against his family history. And I honestly think that got in his head and he was never fully a Georgia player in his heart. Now all that said, you're gonna be forced to sit. Why bother at this point? Also think that the Vols turning around a 1-5 start to an 8-5 season had something to do with it. They have another crappy year with no bowl, I don't think this conversation happens.
I know this kid personally. His father is military and works with my father. I haven't seen him play in person but his highlight reel is solid and he has great heart for the game.
All of this could've been condensed down to "That was a stupid decision to let him leave" vs "It wouldn't have been the same if he stayed at Georgia so it isn't fair to compare." Bottom line, he left. We don't care about Fields anymore, yet people like you still keep cramming this BS down our throats.
I really hope Fox doesn't win the bid. Like, REALLY hope not. If Gus Johnson starts calling SEC games with his overly animated screaming for a 4 yard play behind, I will leave the southeast. That said, if CBS leaving means that better games can be played at night vs a mandatory 3:30 kickoff, I'm all for that. Can you imagine the Cocktail Party kicking off at 7PM?
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.
