And now, some good news

If there’s a KC Joyner post entitled “Why UGA won’t win SEC East”, you should probably think strongly about getting a bet down in Vegas on Georgia.

Seriously, if there’s anyone who’s used stats in poorer service to explain what goes on in the division than Joyner, I’d love to know whom.

    This is just one of those stories that if he hits on, he cab look back and say Itold you so, but if UGA does win the east everyone forgets about it. Much Like my march madness brackets. Sure, San Diego State could win it all. Then I would look like a genius. But when they lose in the first round, I can say it was just a joke. (Sorry to use a bracket anology, Senator)

      Judging by the Senator’s link, he’s been waiting to be able to say “I told you so” on several similar stories for a while now. Keep fishin’, K.C.!

    I’m reminded of the Simpsons episode where the teacher says “Whose calculator can tell me the product of 38 and 49?” Milhouse responds with “Low Battery” and follows up with a big smile because he think’s he’s nailed it. You think maybe this guy doesn’t understand the process?

    Can’t get the “continue” on the March 12 link.

    His dink on Murray is good enough for a start. I really would like to see a flaming Murray fan take up the cudgel and paint every single interception with all the excuses found at that point of the game (ie, the line folded up and caused a hurried throw, he was in the grasp, the receiver didn’t come back for the ball, the receiver was on a different page, game, whatever, etc.) that would rebut the culled plays used to diss Murray’s talent. Please. These negative soothsayers aren’t going to point out highlights of Murray’s running, completing passes while in the grasp, continuing to play while hurt and targeted, getting up from a tough hit and completing a pass, perfect pass into groups of defenders that only our receiver can reach, showing leadership and moxie on busted and difficult plays, standing and delivering while knowing he didn’t have the best O line to protect him, keeping a stiff upper lip and not criticizing other players, the list goes on and on.

    Murray is #1 in the guts department on this and most teams I have ever seen. This “Yeah, but he has too many interceptions” talk should be mollified by all Dawg fans in response to Joyner and trolls alike. C’mon,somebody has the film to review and can make a good case for rebuttal here.

    Who cares about this guy. Well, I did not want to access the site to find out. Just another voice in the off season looking for readers. And nothing he says makes him anymore knowledgeable than any of us.

    I took a look at the Grit about the running game in 2011. Saw the quote from CMR about Mitchell. What would you expect CMR to say about a recruit in their first spring…well, he is not as quick and as fast as we thought during recruiting. Wnen I read that remark, I thougt back to an August a season or so ago and CMR’s remark about the running game…”I’d be surprised if we didn’t run the ball real well”. That has not happened yet. Therefore many of us exhaled after Richt’s comments.
    If you are going to run the ball, to pass the ball, to catch the ball, and for damn sure score when inside the 30 yard line, suggest that O line get it going and get it going big time. Don’t care if it is LSU, Bama, UT, UF, MSU, or Marist…get a running game in place with the right sets and personnel. If you do not run the ball in the SEC, you will find it hard to win championships. Which is something we do not see alot of in any of the men’s big three sports. Why? Coaching!

      That’s gonna make Will Friend wince….. and nervous. I think we all are a bit nervous (some to the point of being frantic before Spring), but what is the suggestion to help out here? Anyone want to stop a guy we recruited big from going to Auburn on the last day? Disappointing, yes, but gnashing the teeth and trying to tear the team apart last year didn’t work and didn’t change much, did it? We all are certainly frustrated that help never seemed to arrive for Bean and others on the line. How do you make a player focus well consistently in the heat and nervousness of battle? You can coach him forever and he can perform in practice to the tune of earning the position, but once you put him on the stage you have no more control except to pull him. No one better to take his place.

      Yep, we go all the way back to recruiting, but what are we all doing to ensure we get what we need for 2013, 14 ? Now is the time we work on those years, not after the year arrives. You then takes what you got and try to make mountains out of molehills. We put on the flab last year. That wasn’t the answer. Great DBs we faced made some of our linemen look like elephants learning to dance. Yep, gnashing the teeth and tearing coaches and players didn’t work then and it won’t work now. The only answer that I know is to get involved now for the next 2-3 years for positive suggestions to take affect.

      Personally, I’d teach them ballet and Kung Fu at the same time. I’m not kidding.
