A question for Andrea Adelson

As she’s hosting a live chat today at the Orlando Sentinel blog, maybe somebody will ask her if she really believes that Todd Grantham can’t do better than this:

Todd Grantham is the new defensive coordinator for Georgia because of the Bulldogs’ record-setting defense. Under former coordinator Willie Martinez, Georgia set a school record for most points given up in a season each of the past two years.

In fact, in each of the past five seasons, Georgia yielded more points than it did the previous year. In 2004 — Georgia’s final season with Brian VanGorder as defensive coordinator — the Bulldogs gave up 198 points. VanGorder left to join the staff of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, and Martinez, Georgia’s secondary coach, moved into his position.

In 2005, Georgia gave up 213 points. In 2006, that rose to 229. Georgia gave up 262 points in 2007, a school-record 319 in 2008, then broke that by yielding 337 points last season.


UPDATE: A bonus question for AA –  how she can rank a school which lost to Georgia by 24 points in its last game of the season and is also switching to a 3-4 scheme on defense seven slots higher than the Dawgs?

    Don’t you need to be including Andrea’s “nickname” in references to her?

    And I don’t know if you noticed that Texas A&M is switching to the 3-4 this season, and LOST to UGA by 24 in the bowl game

    oh yes i noticed. but i think jerrod johnson is great and the difference there in my rankings. and georgia doesn’t have anyone as good on D as vonn miller, IMO.

    Damon Evans out as AD at Georgia… not really a surprise there.

    And my personal favorite:

    Andrea Adelson:
    Bamafan, I am not a Gator fan, just to clear the record on that one.

    Thanks for clearing that up Andrea. I have no problem believing that a UF grad writing for the Orlando Sentinel is not a Gator fan.

    Why? Who thinks we will get an answer that actually makes sense?

    There is nothing that she will say that will even slightly back up her answer

    She did it for attention and got it.


  4. She is literally making me more and more sexist by the day
