So, the only thing you did not like was the quality of the opponent? I agree that a more competitive game would have been better for all concerned BUT, "Cupcake" games don't always turn out to be so boring. I seem to remember that Appalachian State gave Michigan a surprise in "The Big House". It's difficult to know the quality of the opponent when you are scheduling years in advance. The SEC should expand to a 9 game schedule which would increase competition in scheduling. But, "Cupcake" games will always be on the schedule as there are simply not enough quality opponents.
Alabama, Auburn and LSU are all talented, capable teams...AND they MUST PLAY EACH OTHER. The SEC Championship Game in December is wide open for the West. It will be fun to watch.
A 5 Star talent with a 10 Star Ego. Perfect fit for the gators. I seriously doubt his "Bullet Proof" attitude will fly even with Dan Mullen and Todd Grantham. Unless the NCAA gives him a waiver (unlikely) he will never play a down for the gators.
I also don't believe that any of these will follow Saban. Who wants to follow a living legend? Just like when Bear Bryant retired, Bama will go through some turmoil. Dabo and Kirby will NOT follow Saban...they are building their own empires. Expect to see an interim coach before Bama lands the true heir apparent. If Pruitt is successful at UT, he could be the man.
Smart business decision. I am sure Grantham will be able to leverage UF for a few more $$ and it gets him more publicity his agent can use for future opportunities. I expect Grantham will eventually be a HC somewhere soon.
2019 will probably be a big disappointment for most A&M faithful...BUT...the future is bright. A&M has made the investment in $$ and it will take a few years for everything to mature. Fisher is a successful coach and that will follow to A&M. You can expect that in 2021 and beyond, A&M will challenge LSU and BAMA for dominance in the West. Remember, Patience is a Virtue...as most UGA fans have learned.
Welcome to the Junkyard Dawg Defense.
Should have let him go to Arkansas last year when you had the chance. The "Gus Bus" ain't going ANYWHERE for several years...you can't afford it! Sit back and enjoy the ride!
I don't care how much beer you have had to drink, this is unacceptable behavior. What makes it even worse is the fact that it is from a scholarship athlete. Apparently this young man is from a circle of friends and family that find this behavior acceptable in public or anywhere for that matter. He maybe a good athlete but he lacks judgement and common sense. reminds me of John Rocker who is probably his idol. "You can't fix STUPID".
Lets see....90K people attending football game...30K have steel hips, knees, whatever...have to be scanned. Just how many persons with scanners will be available to get the 30k into the stadium BEFORE HALFTIME??? Attending a game is already and ordeal and now this. I think I will stay home and watch the game in my Man Cave.
John Parker Wilson on Jeremy Pruitt’s hire at UT: ‘He scares me more at Tennessee than Kirby does at Georgia’
The reality is, Saban's run as the undisputed king of the SEC is drawing to a close. UGA, South Carolina, Tenn, Florida all have quality Head Coaches and assistants...and all come from the Saban tree of coaches. IT'S GOING TO BE FUN TO WATCH.
Looks like LeBron James' attorney sees an opportunity to squeeze Ala for a new bass boat...after all, it is spring and the fish are starting to bite.
Mark Richt’s response to seeing Georgia play in national title game was about as classy as you’d expect
No surprise here. Mark Richt is the definition of Character and Integrity. I hope he plays for a National Championship @ Miami. He has been so good for college football...he deserves the satisfaction of success.
Although factual, this story is somewhat of a false narrative. NFL IS a different game than the NCAA & SEC. The NFL draft is also totally driven by supply and demand. Teams draft based upon NEED primarily...not because there is an All American QB available when it's their turn to select. The Patriots and lions have been passing on ALL QBs because they have a greater need at other positions. It is no reflection on the quality available. Also, the recent trend of SEC QBs becoming "Dual Threat" vs. "Pro Style" is going to have an even greater effect in the coming years. NFL owners cringe at the thought of their $50 million QBs tucking the ball and running into All Pro linebackers. Matthew Stafford got a huge $$$ contract extension as a Pro Style QB. He was not a Championship QB at Georgia but he is certainly one at Detroit and Merrill Lynch.
What took so long? This was a no-brainer. He should have had the job from the git-go.
LOL...unfortunately, YOU are depriving a small village somewhere of it's IDIOT.
"the difference of Alabama’s offence to Oklahoma is negligible." Better check again...can you spell "Heisman QB"?
For as much distain as ADGM creates, has anyone considered that HE IS EXACTLY WHAT THE POWERS THAT BE WANT IN THEIR AD? He is an excellent manager and administrator...little question about that. But, it does not appear that he is truly the man in charge. I doubt we would have the IAF today if it were not for the turmoil created on the coaching staff several years ago. No significant $$ were spent on the coaches until he was forced to do so (Mike Bobo was making about $550K when he left). We paid his replacement $1M and got nothing to show for it. ADGM was great as the #2 man at Florida and he is a great #2 man at UGA. What we need is a REAL #1 Man.
Very nice article as well as excellent, factual comments. I am not sure the Dawgs have the overall talent to beat Alabama THIS YEAR. But, they continue to amaze me each week. I am no longer surprised if they win it all. But, IT IS CLEAR THAT THE JUNKYARD DOGS ARE BACK AND ARE BIGGER AND MEANER THAN EVER.
Right decision...wrong play. Fake the pass...run wide. But thumbs up on playing to win. UK football is on the rise.
Patience is a virtue...especially with the new UGA football culture. Only one or two teams can truly challenge Alabama this year for the National Championship and the Dawgs are not there...yet. Still several BIG hurdles to face this year before playing for the SEC championship so lets not get totally carried away. BUT, for the first time in many years, it appears the UGA is finally capable of winning the big games. A few more recruiting classes and perhaps one or two assistant coaching changes and there JUST MAY BE A NEW SEC FOOTBALL KING. Keep you eye on the 2019 season...UGA will be in the National Championship hunt...you can count on it.
Normally or "usually" I would totally agree. But after 4 games this year, I believe the culture in Athens has definitely changed. CMR is a wonderful gentleman and football coach. But Coach Smart (and his staff) have definitely created a "WE CAN Win" mindset and it was apparent on the field last Saturday night. We always had the talent...we just never believed it. NOW WE DO. Dawgs will play close first half and will pull away and win big in the second. Chubb and Fromm will have their best days yet. Defense shuts down the Vols and keeps them under 200 total yards. UGA leaves no doubt that there is a NEW DAWG IN ATHENS and it wears RED & BLACK.
Funny...I thought this article we about the emergence of Auburn as the team to Challenge Alabama's dominance.
This is the 21st Century. Get some cameras, sensors, and lasers and pay a human to monitor them. It ain't like we are sending a man to the moon.
Should fit in perfectly with the Gators.
If this article is factual, Coach Malzahn is headed out the door. If the HC can not make his own hires and run his own program he is doomed. Just ask Mark Richt.
Too bad YOU don't show as much class as this kid.
BRAVO!!! Classy letter from a mature young man. His Dad could take a lesson here. This fiasco should have NEVER gone public. CKS will do what is in the best interest for ALL Concerned and "The Kicker" gets it. I experienced a similar situation "Back in the day" courtesy of my mother so I understand EXACTLY how Rodrigo feels. DGD Rodrigo.
Obviously, a slow news day.
2017 will be a turning point...one way or another. There is simply too much talent on this team for them not to win the East. Anything less will reflect on the coaching staff and their ability to develop talent and coach. Lots of excuses this year because "the cupboard was left bare". That argument won't sell in 2017. The Honeymoon is over...time to produce on the field.
