Georgia on his mind

Did Jarvis Jones get inside James Franklin’s head during last week’s game?  Franklin says, yeah.

Georgia had a very short field for two quick touchdowns off big plays by linebacker Jarvis Jones, a 21-yard interception return to the 1 and a forced fumble on a sack three plays later that gave the Bulldogs possession at the 5. Just like that, the deficit was an insurmountable 21 points.

“I would start to feel pressure that wasn’t even there,” Franklin said. “I was trying to anticipate the throw, so it was way off and incomplete, something like that. That was one thing that I definitely wanted to work on, just staying in there more and trusting a lot better.”

Hopefully he won’t be the last quarterback we hear that from this season.

    Aside from the QB pressure, I thought the D did a good job of containing franklin’s scrambling – A significant improvement over the buffalo game where a couple of Zordich’s runs made a big difference. Scrambling is a big part of the offense of mizzou, as well as coming games with vandy and scu.

    Jarvis playing hurt like that is starting to move him into the Bill Stanfill and David Pollock tier for sure and certain.

    Todd Graham, for one, apparently doesn’t think our defense stopped them…”what happened last week is they turned the ball over.” Yes, because they were getting stopped, actually, Todd. They didn’t run to the goal line and set the ball down, I don’t think.

    Hey Senator, this is off the subject here but I was listening to Sirius/XM College Sports station earlier this morning and they had Paul Whinebaum on and were discussing the ad that MU placed in the Athens B/H and making fun of it and then they shifted to Richardson’s apology to CMR. Whinebaum said, “Yeah, I couldn’t believe he (Richardson) apologized to Mark “Spitz”, I mean Richt, I thought Richardson should have spit in Richt’s eye.” Maybe he was getting his Spitz and spit mixed-up, but regardless, what a jerk he is. I’m not sure I’ve ever heard him say anything remotely positive about UGA. But since he’s a utk alum and up in Knoxville today for the fu/utk game, I’m shouldn’t be surprised.

    As a Sirius subscriber I plan on writing them about FBomb, not because of his “little man” conduct regarding CMR, that just makes him look smaller. Richt is generally highly regarded nationally while FBomb is a joke to all but Bammer fans (who have become a joke themselves.) My complaint to Sirius is they are a national network, and should begin to at like one. The 3-7 timeslot drives CFB fans around the nation to other networks. I enjoy driving with the College Sports station but have to change the channel when that abortion comes on. Would love to see their numbers versus the other time periods. I believe FBomb is available everywhere in the state of Alabama, why would anyone but Bammer/Barn truckdrivers need a satellite feed? The show guves the SEC, and the South, a bad reputation with the fools who call in on that show. Those kind of folks live everywhere, but not many networks will let them drive listeners away by letting them call every single day, and only focus on one and a half teams.

      Finebaum was called the voice of the SEC by Dan Patrick when he was a guest. I was extremely troubled by that statement and was only satiated when he was the shortest interview I’ve ever seen on that show.

      +1 Mac. I, too, do not get why SiriusXM has given that clown and the idiots that call him a national stage. The best way to deal with Finebaum is to boycott his show, which has commercials. When the numbers go down enough the advertisers won’t pay and SiriusXM will put another show in that slot. Letters of complaint might help but the problem with that is SiriusXM already has our money from the subscriber payments and, like ESPN, doesn’t really give a damn what the fans think.

    I wanna see Jarvis Jones get inside AJ McCarron or better yet Zach Mettenberger’s head.

    FWIW….Monroe is a very good football team, and a real testament to the recruiting experts….could very easily have beaten Auburn, some might say should have beaten them. It is interesting none of the Texas schools saw anything in the quarterback that was worth a scholarship.

    Arkansas, on the other hand, is not as good as Bama. Bama really is pretty good.

    Considering Franklin is doubtful for tonight’s tilt vs. ASU, I’d say St. Jarvis did more than get in his head.
