Goin’ down the road, feelin’ bad…

I’m leaving Dodge City early this morning to get up to Nashville to watch our guys play, so I won’t have anything else for you until tomorrow.

Feel free to use the comments to this post to record your reactions to the game.

And just to get you in the mood quicker, here are some last minute things to ponder.

First, from georgiadogs.com, here’s a statistical breakdown of Georgia’s total yardage by class this season that’s pretty revealing:

All-Purpose yards this season by class
Seniors: 220
Juniors: 151
Sophomores: 1,645
Freshmen: 817

Also from the same site, check out the sack numbers yielded by the offense under Richt.

Sacks allowed in a season Under Mark Richt
2001: 12 games, 15 sacks allowed
2002: 14 games, 31 sacks allowed
2003: 14 games, 47 sacks allowed
2004: 12 games, 21 sacks allowed
2005: 13 games, 20 sacks allowed
2006: 13 games, 17 sacks allowed
2007: 13 games, 15 sacks allowed
2008: 13 games, 17 sacks allowed
2009: 6 games, 5 sacks allowed

I guess what I wrote in response to Scarbinsky’s “has anyone else noticed that Georgia hasn’t quite been the same since Neil Callaway left for UAB?” was wrong.  Pass protection has improved since Callaway left.  My apologies, Kevin.

Okay, those of you who in the preseason saw Idaho becoming bowl eligible (h/t EDSBS) before Georgia, raise your hands…  Yeah, that’s what I thought.

Finally, if you didn’t catch this in the comments, you know what a sucker I am for gallows humor, so I leave you with this:

“we’re not rebuilding. we’re still unraveling.”

Until tomorrow…
