Haha yes! On my CPU at the end of the article, right before the comments there is always an earwax ad. It's so gross! I didn't know how the ads work, but glad somebody shares my pain!
Gator fans are so quick to throw an asterisk on the bowl game, but never mention the injuries from Georgia during that game. LeCounte, Pickens, Cleveland, McIntosh, Rochester, and Jordan Davis didn't even dress. Not counting the injuries during the game. It's part of the game I know... so congrats on winning the East and your #13 ranking!
Yea I definitely saw a lot from him him in only a few starts. And he just got to campus in August. I think a whole offseason with Monken definitely will help. I’m just not drinking the koolaid of a heisman trophy just yet lol!
Two takeaways from the game... - I thought the defense was really good considering we were missing our 2 best back end players in Stokes and LeCounte and then others who missed also. Other than the long TD to start the second half I thought it wasn’t bad. 21 points to a top 10 team is pretty good especially considering personnel. - Still not sold on Daniels. UGA receivers seemed to have run by the Cincy defenders all night and he underthrew a few or missed all together. He held on to the ball way too long and took sacks that he could have gotten rid of. OL was make shift with injuries and opt outs so running game was ok, I thought it got better later. Best part was JT did make a late drive of smart plays so I’ll give him that
As much as I despise Dan Mullen (and grantham for that matter) I hate this for trask. I never fully bought into his hype all this year and last year. I think he’s a good college QB but not heisman deserving. But I do give him a ton of credit (him and Mac Jones) for sticking around in an age when everybody gets their feelings hurt and leaves immediately. Most QBs have to start their first year or two on campus. It’s nice seeing a few minutes of prosper doing it for the school and team not just themselves.
Don’t speak too soon. A 23 point road underdog with a QB in his first start also sounds boring... turns out I was on the edge of my seat all night!
Trask*... don’t mean to put trash.
Not riding anything. I’m a QB coach at the high school level and as I stated before I made a post saying I believe Mac is the better QB. He doesn’t throw the INT’s that trash does. It was in this post so I’m sorry for you not realizing. I was just saying! I’ll give trask his due, they won the east, while Georgia was banged up and didn’t have a QB. But guess who won’t have a QB next year and the other team will be ready for payback? Can’t wait to watch next week, good luck
I seriously made a comment on the finebaum article comparing the 2 QB’s. Florida fans were so quick to point out the numbers. You can’t back his anymore! And not knocking the guy cause he’s great... but he makes bonehead throws that I feel Mac doesn’t.
Kyle Trask vs. Mac Jones: Who does Paul Finebaum give the edge to the Heisman Trophy race right now?
Stat wise I’m saying it’s more impressive that Jones is putting up the numbers in a balanced offense. If he threw every down how gaudy would they be, or if he still had Waddle. Watching them both play I feel like jones makes better decisions and throws (not by much.) Just my opinion. I agree that both could win it but I’m giving the edge to the undefeated one.
Kyle Trask vs. Mac Jones: Who does Paul Finebaum give the edge to the Heisman Trophy race right now?
Jones should win it. He points out how good Najee Harris is, that just goes to show how balanced Bama is and Jones is still putting up insane numbers. Trask is throwing by the goal line and all game long. Florida has 6 rushing tds on the year while Harris has 20 by himself.
D’Wan Mathis’ time at Georgia may be ending, but he’ll have fans for life – no matter where he ends up
Good call! Every college quarterback needs competent coaching and development. You should change your name from mrtruth to mrobvious.
Not disagreeing with your fist statement because it could be, its college football. But I will disagree with your second sentence. The game was 21-0 Georgia (yes all second half points), but it was played in a monsoon! Kentucky had 17 yards passing and Georgia had 35! That should tell you alot
This is one thing I have always said about Trask... If he was so good why didn't he start over Franks? Coaches are making way too much money to play favorites or not hurt feelings. They sit in meetings, watch film, and practices. So I'm under the assumption they are going to put the best product on the field to win. (Sometimes UGA may not seem like it lol) But I will say Trask has looked really good. He has a ton of weapons also. I'm not sold on him being elite, but he is very good QB.
I agree with everything you just said! And I agree that Trask was a consistent QB last year.
For Trask to be so good, and for Mullen to be such a QB guru... I still can't wrap my brain around Franks starting last year.
First of all I will say that I think the NCAA should just adopt a 1 time transfer rule where they can play immediately (Most QBs are given this). Secondly, this ruling is a little different because its not only in conference, but its inside divisions. And he played and started in the bowl game in January. So it wasn't like an injury or family problems kept him out of playing time. Hard to believe a flip just switched and there was all kind of trouble. Again I think they should all get 1 free pass. The NCAA is so jacked up its crazy. Players like Tate Martell and Justin Fields get it for no reason other than playing time. But
Paul Finebaum reacts to Terrell Lewis’ combine comments: Pete Golding is the worst Alabama DC to return under Nick Saban
I will give Golding another year to prove himself. He had a ton of injuries last year. Plus I’m sold on Saban being a great judge of talent (whether it be coaches or players.) I mean look at the guys coaching tree!! There are 4 other correct head coaches in our conference who have coached under the guy!! Not counting the numerous around the nation! And Pete was on staff the adopted the DC label. Golding rose through the ranks very very quickly. You don’t just go from a db’s coach in CUSA to Nick Saban’s DC by luck. Saban obv has a reason to keep him another year. I would think he could reach out to probably 80 other DC’s in the nation and they would come! Saban stuck with him... I will give him 1 more year before I call him trash
Can’t blame Kirby for this one at all. I think they have nothing to lose on this hire. Anybody know of the special teams coordinator who left UGA??? Didn’t think so. But now they have arguably the most notable S&C coach in the nation on their sidelines running special teams, at practice, and recruiting (and no longer with bama.) Yea he may not be proven but coaches coach. It’s what they do. Hell Kirby’s first job at UGA was RB’s coach under Richt. I’ve heard Cochran speak at multiple clinics and the dude is unreal. I know why players love him. I would hire him for my staff any day
I love how Georgia losing talent on offense equates to them falling out of the East race (and lets be honest the offense was cringe worthy most of the season.) Yet if you have seen a single mock draft, you realize Bama loses a ton and are #3 and nobody bats an eye. In all fairness they lose that much every year and Saban is the best coach of all time. But give Kirby some credit on his recruiting and his ability to secure the East. 1 loss in 3 seasons to the East is impressive. I wouldn't go betting the house that it ends because of the draft. 9 Defensive starters come back and Kirby usually seems to baffle the offensive guru Dan. I like the chances of 4 straight.
yes its pretty solid, especially considering the fact that the coach's D that returns 80% production seems to be able to stop the coach's O with 63% production. Obviously I'm just joking cause who knows what will happen in Jacksonville. We have a spring and half a season before that game kicks off. I just thought it was funny that people were saying Florida will represent the East in the CCG and maybe the SEC in the playoff, when a lot of the east still returns production.
So in terms of numbers and not just reporters rambling, Florida and Georgia are tied? Interesting!!
He's at least won his division as a head coach in 3 years. Another "offensive guru" has yet to accomplish that in 11 years!
This is awesome!!
While losing so many on offense will obviously be tough, the good thing is the D will be strong if not stronger next year. And the last 3 years against Mullen, Kirby has came with a pretty strong game plan and executed it. It will be a fun SEC East next year with UGA, UF, and UT. With losing all those offensive pieces, now is the time to bring the offense up to speed. Gonna be a new QB, why not have an new OC. You are gonna have the WRs, pounding and slash style RBs, and new OL. I hope Kirby has a plan.
Grantham could be a possibility. The Rhule hiring today shows you that you can't exactly believe everything said at a press conference. Napier could be in the mix. He denied it but they had a bowl game to play last night (and rightfully so, no HC should go to a bowl game press conference and talk about another team's interview while preparing your current team).
Yea, gotta read carefully! Kirby has beat Auburn every single year. I never said Kirby was undefeated
I hope Malzahn sticks around too! Kirby has beat him every year hes been the HC at UGA. Georgia has "held their collective breaths" in almost every 4th quarter this season. But a W is a W.
I like Coach O. Hes a down to earth guy who will talk to you like he has known you his whole life. I think this is a reason he recruits so well. But this is the nature of the beast (When you get paid millions of dollars). Its a roller coaster, and a lot of it depends on the talent suiting up... and if those 18-22 year olds can perform at an high level consecutively for a few months. Kirby won the SEC in year 2 and was riding high. Just this year he has been questioned. I hope Coach O keeps winning to justify his overall record and prove the doubters wrong. In saying this... that's what makes Bama's run so dang impressive. Year in and year out coaches approval ratings go up and down and somebody will be calling for their head. Saban was and still is the standard for a decade. Between recruiting and performance on the field it was unreal. Idk if we will see domination like that again.
All we heard going into Jacksonville was how Fla hung with LSU in Death Valley... y’all got quiet for a week now they are back talking smack about UGA. We will play the games on the field and see.
