    Not much has gone right at our tailgate this morning with all the rain. Opposite omen – we rollin em by 20!

    Keep the pictures coming for those of us who can’t be there! Living vicariously!

    • In Central Georgia today… Yesterday’s rain has moved out..Morning breaks as bright as a new penny ! The sunshine is perfect, the air cool, nice fall windgusts are softly drying the colorful sweetgums, hickorys and maples.
      I hope it’s an omen.

    You both consider yourselves in a much happier place — I woke to the spectacle of a sky filled with snowflakes (BIG/Thick ones). And I may just be forced to shovel at some point.

    As to the Party, I do believe J.Brantley to be a block of salt in the pocket, highly vulnerable. Though if we intend to force the issue straight through the Guard/Center gaps that could leave the Dawgs exposed to their sweeps and outside-the-tackles stuff. I tentatively hope the Cheeseburglar aims to test the secondary to exploit the 1st half absence of Williams — that may be the boot we need to kick out the cooler. With a passing rating of 125 UF is #8 in the SEC.

    I’d expect many more 1st down passes from UF (in keeping with bye week adjustment practices), and if the D defends those well we can rely more on the Grantham 3rd-down magic.

    It was overcast throughout the 2007 game. I think it is a good omen.

  5. Gator fans at the local high school football game last night were kind of reserved. Only one smarky comment. We agreed Georgia should win, but also agreed that “should” means nothing. Parted by agreeing that whoever wins the East is buying a beatdown in ATL (although I really don’t necessariliy believe it if the Dawgs go…they’ll be competitive).
    Gator fan loaned me and the wife an umbrella. We did everything except sing “cumbya”. …..I say Dawgs, 24 to 20

    It’s impossible for me to be optimistic about this game.

    Also, it looks like I’ll probably miss the first 30+ minutes of the game, as they’ll be airing the VT-Duke on CBS in my area, and that game doesn’t start until 12:30. Don’t suppose anyone knows a cheap and easy way around this problem … ?

    • baltimore dawg

      me too, man. almost always miss the first half hour of the cbs 3:30 game due to whatever acc crap-fest comes on at noon. but will be streaming the game, right? that’s my plan.

    • Bulldog Bry

      Baltimore’s right, cbs will stream it online. I don’t mind that they wait til the end of a close game (acc crapfest games up here), but when they go down to interview the coaches at 3:50, that’s when I blow a gasket. Is Frank Beamer really gonna say anything different than he’s said in the last 20 years?

      • baltimore dawg

        yep. i’ve screamed at the damn tv at 3:50 watching bc blow out wake by 30 with 5:00 minutes of clock time left. infuriating. . . .

    • Dave

      Ini Charlotte we had the same issue with the LSU vs Duke and somebody game but they showed the start of LSU on a lower channel 105 here

    • gastr1

      Get online. CBS will have it at

    • Turd Ferguson

      Awesome. Thanks guys.

      • NRBQ

        You could listen to Scott Howard, if you don’t mind not knowing where the ball is ’till just before the next snap.

        • Macallanlover


          Shouldn’t that be covered in “Play-by-play 101”? I don’t mind that he doesn’t have Larry’s style (who does), but it is basic to let the listener visualize where the ball is one the field. The only people in the world that care about knowing the yardline where the ball rests, or is passing over, and can’t see it are his listeners…don’t keep us in suspense!

  7. AthensHomerDawg

    Nothing better than some good music to get your heads in the right place.
    “You Got to Believe” that the “When the Battle is Over”… Dawgs will wear the crown! Thaz right!

  8. Uftimmy

    In daytona now. An hour away from lot z. Well practically be neighbors

  9. FisheriesDawg

    That looks just like it did when I went to the 2007 ACC championship game…except it looked that way an hour before the game.

  10. Vincent

    no one is tebowing yet ?

  11. TennesseeDawg

    I’m not getting my hopes up again this year.

  12. AusDawg85

    Key today…O-line play. If they can push when we’re in the I and get Isiah some space, and more importantly, keep AM upright when we’re in the shotgun, we got a good chance. Come out like they did vs. Boise, and it’s gonna be a lonnnngggg day.

    Go Dawgs!

    • The Lone Stranger

      You said it…as ever, the big Uglies. There is some beef & quickness on that UF D-Front for penetration, so I don’t think the misdirection stuff will be there, but then the Dawgs hardly use that anyway. Also I’d like to see some PA out to the fullbacks and even IC — give him so outside room to maneuver. W/O Mitchell, the O needs to get more creative than the occasional Go-Route or slants to Bennet/King. Sic ‘Em now, boys!

  13. Gloomy mornings lead to victory sunsets.

  14. OKDawg

    Wonder if this Ark-Vandy game will help some appreciate our ugly win there…or will they just say Arkansas has been smoke and mirrors so far this year.

  15. Dawg Vent

    Emerson is reporting that John Brantley is NOT participating in warm-ups. Can anyone guess who I blame? Here’s a hint:

    FIRE MARK RICHT!!!!!!1!

  16. Turd Ferguson

    Glad I started drinking early.

  17. The Original Cynical in Athens

    Maybe when the 14th team comes in we can petition to move to the West and get out of having to play this game anymore.

    It is beyond a mental hurdle, at this point, it is simply an absolute tire-fire-cluster-fuck. In no other game of the year do you see the shit that happens in this game. Balls off helmets, etc. We just need to quit playing the game, period. I don’t know what else to say.

    We could take the ’89 49ers down to Jacksonville in UGA uniforms to match up with Bolles HS JV team and would be down 28-10 at halftime. It is fucking mind boggling.

  18. gastr1

    I mean, they suck to start with. Then you have a QB on one leg who can barely move, no true RB but what the one do have goes out with a knee, and no FG kicker. Chuck friggin Norris would be beating us by himself if he put on a pair of jorts and grew a mullet.

  19. AusDawg85

    Well…we’ve managed to bring everything that has NOT worked for us this season and bring it to the Party. Well done dawgs….

    Murray staring down every receiver and over-hyped…check.
    Special (needs) Teams…check.
    Blair Wide-right…check.
    Bump mis-tackling…check

    Occupy the Coach’s Box! Free Isiah!

    • The Lone Stranger

      We’ll just ride RSIV to three yards and stumble, but, ya know, maybe he has one of those Arkansas ’09 runs in him. And we know by now the Gators will be blitzing 80% of the snaps. Murray MUST complete quick slants and screens (preferably avoiding the HELMET) to back off these blitzers.

  20. TennesseeDawg

    Halftime. Waiting to see how we are going to blow it again this year.

  21. Wolfman

    At least it seems like we’ve found ourselves some hard-working young receivers that don’t have to rely on hype.

  22. AthensHomerDawg

    Oh slow your roll gentlemen. We got ’em exactly where we want ’em!


  23. Skeptic Dawg

    Is anyone surprised? Who did not see this coming?

    • NRBQ

      See comment above, dicknoid.

      • Puffdawg

        Seriously, why do these fucktards even pull for Georgia with a sorry attitude like that. I suspect they were subconsciously rooting for us to fail just so they could say,”I told you so.”. Get off our bus Energy Vampires!!!!

  24. Zero Point Zero

    Can We please stop crapping the bed. Not os Special Teams, QB play, etc. damn I’m angry.

  25. TennesseeDawg

    Dawgs win (but ugly). Here’s a recap of the game.

  26. I finally feel today that Coach Richt still like to continue coaching at UGA. I think he got out of his comfort zone several times. It was a close game but again the main problem is in the special teams that basically gave away 10 points. Bobo also at least called for Samuel in those runs who UF has not been able to stop that much today.

    • AusDawg85

      Ha…and I’m leaning towards believing a change just may be in order. We just can’t go on being this ugly, even with the win.

      Come Monday, we’ll probably head back to our respective CMR corners.

  27. Turd Ferguson

    Okay, who was the guy in the #22 jersey, and what in the hell did we do with Richard Samuel?

    • AusDawg85

      Immediate induction to the UGA Hall of Fame! He earned it.

      • Turd Ferguson

        Did we sneak Richard Samuel III into the jersey at halftime? Guy ran like a grown ass man in that second half.

    • Normaltown Mike

      I think he needs to be renamed “Double Deuce”.

      The name Richard Samuel IV doesn’t do justice to that performance.

      • Hated to seem him have to be carried off at the end of the game… He deserved to be carried off on his teammates shoulders, not by the trainers. Brought the MF’ing boom to them gators. Hell of a game he played.

  28. Comin' Down The Track

    We won ugly. We played like crap, and overcame it. We made a one possession score stand up for a small eternity. We earned it. No gimmicks, no dirty play, no nonsense.
    Halfway to two in a row.
    Go Dawgs.

  29. Cojones

    What hath God wrought? The team surely wrought wrong.

    Love the W! Look out for New Mexico St next week end. They may thank us and receive the charity we are giving.

  30. I think games against Auburn, GT or maybe even Kentucky will be nail biters. This game is a better one though with UGA able to keep the ball to the end than in previous games where the defense will have to work their butts

  31. NRBQ

    Lotta people predicted defense would win the day (to humble to include myself).

    The FU offense scored 10 points. Box score is crazy: 83 plays vs 55. 2 of 13 3rd down conversions. The fastest RB duo in the country? 48 yds (team = -19.

  32. Cojones

    Looks like we need to work a fe more kinks out on D. Special Teams? Even the announcer said we should hire a ST coach.

    Fo made the difference! Who woulda thunk it? We owe that young man

    • AusDawg85

      (Monday morning, BM complex…knock on door)
      CTG (smoking BIG cigar, feet on desk); Come in.
      CMR: Uh, coach…gotta minute?
      CTG: You betcha!
      CMR: Nice game. Been thinking…can you take over ST units?
      CTG: Sure…you gonna fire Bobo?
      CMR: Naw…can’t do that. What else can I offer?
      CTG: Nothing…just playing with ya Markie. I’ll handle it.
      CMR: Thanks coach.
      CTG: But….one more thing.
      CMR: Yeah?
      CTG: New truck. All the whistles and bells. By the end of today.
      CMR: Deal…here’s my keys. Keep it.

  33. Turd Ferguson

    And apparently, that’s what Jarvis Jones is capable of when he’s not constantly getting held.

  34. gastr1

    I hope something like knocks the lid off this game. Jesus, you know it’s bad when even the frigging punter has his head up his ass.

    • No crap. Those were exactly my thoughts… Our All American punter gets the shanks… seriously? That Gator curse is strong. All it took to break it is a former UGA player to turn Gator and run helplessly over on their sidelines.
