    Brandon Bourbon at RB, Jack Daniels at QB and Evan Williams at wideout.

    South Carolina as a Tier 2? LMAO!

  3. TennesseeDawg

    Still the best matchup of name and program is Jim Bob Cooter at Tennessee. (Somehow I must have missed this article)

    I’m not gonna gripe about our standing in the tier thing, we’re lucky to be tier 2, but his tier descriptions have some pretty elastic terminology. “Legitimately Contend”?

    I would definitely put UGA in the Tier II category.

    I’m trying to figure out how you can win 6 conference titles the last ten years, finishing worse then 2d in your division once in that same time frame, play a Tier I team every year in your division, and seemingly be in the BCS conversation every year; but not Tier I. I mean, I dislike OU as much as the next native Texan, but come on.

      +1. How about Southern Cal? And for that matter Nebraska? He’s also got teams in Tier II and III that are too high. Come on is right. This guy’s method is fatally flawed. BTW UGA is # 12 in all-time wins and #13 in all-time winning percentage. Florida is behind UGA in both. What have you done lately seems to be at work here.

        I agree because if I understand correctly, he is referring to teams that are ready to contend in the present, but he is also using past trends for the leveling of tiers.

        Using the 2 USCs (mwuhahahaha) South Carolina is probably in better shape to contend for an SEC East title this year because of the mess in the SEC East. However, if he thinks this “Tier 2: Legitimately contend for conference title every 3-5 years and BCS title every 4-6 years” is true about the Gamecocks, he is delusional.
        Meanwhile, things aren’t exactly great in So Cal, but they certainly fit this description “Tier 1: Legitmately contend for conference title every 2-4 years and BCS title every 3-5 years.”

        And if he is going to dump the Trojans for an off year, then why is Texas still Tier 1, but OU is Tier 2?

        It is an interesting concept, but I think his metrics are flawed. That said, I do think UGA is probably in the right spot.

    Here’s to you, Mr Burr…Mr. Buorb…hic, hell, here’s to me!

    I now have hope that we have been saved from the GT aholes that have run the SEC officiating for the last 30 years. I think Steve Shaw was the best and fairest Ref in the SEC and his becoming the head of officiating will stop some of the dumb-ass Penn Wagers etc. I noticed that ole Penn called the G-Day game and screwed up the call at the end of the half until CTG called him on it. If Gantham had been there the year he screwed the holding call by UT I think Penn would have been subject to a beat down.

  8. Reptillicide

    The new celebration rule really, really bothers me and I know in my heart that it’s only a matter of time before we are screwed out of another win by it. The egregious penalty called on AJ Green in the LSU game two years is a perfect example of how this rule is a horrible idea. AJ did nothing. A flag was thrown anyway. They can talk all they want about how they “wont be nitpicky,” but how are you going to sell that to us with a straight face when there are documented cases of officials actually throwing flags for a rules infraction that didn’t actually happen?

    This rule does nothing but make the game even more subject to an officials’ judgment and subjective interpretation of the rules, and that is bad for college football. After the horrible officiating calls we’ve seen, it’s mindblowing that they would actually make this rule that can effectively decide the outcome of a game on such a subjective call.

    • Mayor of Dawgtown

      That’s the whole idea, Rep. They now have a rule that is totally subjective that the “powers that be” (read: SEC Commissioner’s Office) can use to determine the winners of close games and therefore manipulate who the winners of the East and West will be. 2 years ago the fixing of games so that FLA and Bama would end up facing each other in the SECCG and the SEC would be guaranteed a spot on the BCSNCG was so obvious that I was sure that some law enforcement authority would start an investigation. But it didn’t happen. These guys just keep getting away with it year after year. Absolutely amazing. They must think that they are completely bulletproof by now. Maybe they are.

  9. The Life of Reilly

    Wouldn’t the taunting rule be a bit more palatable if the penalty was having the player ejected from the game instead of taking away the score from the team? I mean the guilty party is the player who high-stepped into the endzone not his teammates. The team as a whole earned the touchdown, the single player broke the taunting rule. Punish the single player and not the whole team for the points that they earned.

    • Mayor of Dawgtown

      That would make too much sense for the NCAA in the 21st century. Also, see my post above for the SEC’s motivation for supporting the rule change.
