Really would like to know who placed this injury curse on us this year..— Jordan Jenkins (@jordanOLB) October 22, 2013
Here’s the walking wounded list as of today’s practice.

Jeepers. Can we field a varsity team?
Vegas has opened with Bye as an 8 point favorite.
After we beat LSU some nutball Cajun put the voodoo on us, probably the same one who jinxed Billy Bennett into missing 3 FG’s in Red Stick in 2003.
Must’ve been the same guy in charge of the AJ celebration penalty too. Those Cajuns are super sketch.
It was that voodoo woman named Phyllis…
That sounds suspiciously like syphillus … for whatever that’s all worth. Besides, I reckoned voodoo women took up names like Nightshade or Virago.
My money is on Spurrier. He is in touch with evil forces.
Joe Tereshinski? John Thomas? Sherman Armstrong? Ron Courson?
All of the above?
Or do we have some goldbricking going on during the off week?
Other teams don’t have this problem.
Florida begs to differ.
WR is just incredible. That list doesn’t include the guys out for the season. Total: Mitchell, Bennett, Scott-Wesley, Wooten, Conley, Erdman, McGowan.
I guess Rumph is finally back, so that’s only 7 of our top 8 receivers, including out top scout teamer. Is this unprecedented?
Certainly unprecedented. How can it not be so.
I don’t see a good reason to play Rumph at this point. We don’t need to waste a redshirt on 10 snaps a game. Get him ready for next year and have him for 2 more years. It’s easy to say “But he’ll just leave after next year.” You don’t know that, and he probably won’t unless he’s all-world.
We could have Marlon Brown this year except we had him catch about 4 passes in 2009.
Is Rumph not basically a starter at this point?
There were other options besides Brown, our current options are walk-ons. He should play as should any other FR who is capable of contributing. I’ve never understood the mindset of saving a player for next year if he can contribute this year. Injuries, size(lineman) and clear depth(we have none at WR) are the only reasons to RS.
I think that’s the unanswered question of this season. Why so many injuries? Is it really just bad luck?
Of course not. There is no such thing as luck. When something bad happens you find a coach to pin it on, no matter how tenuous the reasoning, and hand them a pink slip. In this case, I’d point out that “truly” good teams have their scout team ready to play the same level of offense without missing a beat. Fire Bobo.
If Jenkins’ post is any indication, the team might be feeling a little sorry for themselves at this point. Now this might be normal or even expected, but I would argue a good leader/coach would strongly discourage this sort of attitude since it normally leads to failure.
Leads to failure? Um, led to failure. See Nashville. This team is slowly circling the drain.
It has to be extremely disheartening to watch your brothers sit on the sidelines. I think getting Todd Gurley back will be good for production and morale.
The curse may be a punishment for the UGA Athletic Board for not paying assistant coaches well enough.
Maybe the Kharmic Bitches have rewarded early season over confidence.
It would be nice to have a healthy, experienced OLine to lean on when this happens. Oh, wait ……..
