I’m guessing some part of the fan base won’t be as receptive to the sentiment as Aaron might like.

I wonder if one of his man purses matches that outfit?
First “Gurshall” mention I’ve seen since Saturday
It’s probably not his personality, but he needs to shut up and lay low until after the Florida game.
Aww, what the heck. Let the kid have fun. All us doomsday fans are the ones with panties in wads.
^^^^^ More this. ^^^^^
Same opinion here, but I’m actually angry about it. Anyone upset that a player in his situation is trying to take some shred of enjoyment out of life can f-off and die. Makes me genuinely ashamed of the university and it’s fans.
I’ve been genuinely ashamed of the university and its fans for 5 days now.
Just as I have been ashamed of this coaching staff and the player for the past 5 day.
While Murray may not be the main issue with this program, he is proving himself to be a large symptom.
Any self-proclaimed fan of college football who would publicly express being ashamed of a player (young man) for not playing well in a game should at best reconsider his/her life priorities and at worst be ashamed of him/herself.
I find myself amazed that you take pride in getting beat like a rented mule. Please, by all means, celeberate the performance of this entire program from top to bottom last Saturday night. Let’s continue to give Richt and his team a pass for yet another epic failure.
The loss was a shocking embarassment for the program and coaches. But to express you are ashamed with a young man publicly is a different thing altogether. We should rightly be ashamed of a player for carrying an concealed, unregistered weapon on campus in the middle of the night. It is shameful, however, to attempt to shame a young man for playing a poor game. To borrow your words, “I find myself amazed that you take pride in” shaming any player of ours for game performance.
so i should clarify less I be lumped in with someone like skeptic dawg.
Just trying to +1 the point about a little reflection is probably needed for some folks who might take football a little too seriously.
me too some people need to get a life and find perspective.
me too was not to Skeptic but to the Mayor.
I get as equally annoyed at people taking the “high road” and tell others how to prioritize or live their life. Particularly within the context of the upside down crazy world of college football.
it is a polite way of saying get your head out of your ass, jerk.
it’s a southern thing.
Gurshall can’t do much without an offensive line…
which offensive line are you referring to? the one that has two freshmen backs dang near leading the conference in every rushing stat? or some other line?
You’re probably the only person in the world who honestly thinks we have a legitimate offensive line, but I’ll respond anyway…
I’m referring to the offensive line that was shut out for 58 minutes against an above average (and far from great) SEC team. Yeah, that’s the one.
Let me get this straight, you’re saying USC defensive front isn’t good? Not saying Uga offensive line is great bit give credit when it is due. They’ve played pretty well outside of one game. Also, USC deserves credit for playing well too.
Not good i meant great. They have great talent
The team may be just above average, although I think that could be argued. But the ‘Cocks D-line is anchored by two future first rounders.
SC has a strong defensive front, I’ll grant you that. Consider, however, that Vandy’s O line managed to help their offense out more than ours did. The same could be said for Missouri. And Kentucky.
But I still feel the coaches need to have or see a Psychologist before going to these “big games”.
I think maybe you’re kidding…? But I often wonder if we’re doing anything like this for our coaches and players… Maybe there is something there…?
“Maybe there is something there…?”
If it’s good enough for Nick, it’s good enough for Richt…?
Plenty of golfers improve their game w/ psychologists. I’m not talking about the kind where you go and sit in an office and talk about your problems. But there is something to mental preparation that goes beyond simply practicing schemes, watching film, and physical conditioning.
We appear to be in a mental block right now in big games, quite similar to the mental block we (usually) have had against UF over the last couple of decades. Our players have to believe that they can play w/ anybody. The power of belief. Believing that you belong on that big stage and that you can beat down any opponent, no matter how superior the talent.
I think back to 2006. That was a rebuilding year for sure. And we dropped games against UK and Miss St, 2 games that should have been gimmes, even in a rebuilding season. But, we closed out strong, knocking off 3 ranked opponents in a row: #5 Auburn, GT, and VT. The beat down of Auburn would have been the most impressive if it had not been for the heroic second-half comeback against VT. The power of belief. Even though we had a less-than-stellar season, I am damn proud of that team.
We definitely need some sort of mental adjustment. It may not be something that is quantifiable or tangible, but that doesn’t mean it can’t make all the difference.
You can never KNOW if you’ll beat a team. But merely THINKING that you’ll beat a good team is not enough.
It’s not enough just to have “heart.” Plenty of losers have heart. Winners BELIEVE they can and will win. I think that’s the biggest difference this season b/w Bama and everybody else. They are young. They are inexperienced. They are candidates for getting exposed. But, they play like they believe they will win. That is why they are so damn physical and intimidating.
The UGA coaches looks like bullies in the school yard harassing weaker teams but runs away or disappear when a tougher kid comes around
the coaches play?
Really? Troll? Get over yourself.
No they prepare the players
Maybe the shirt is referring to leaving his house for an away game.
He’s the quarterback and he has to play with both the line and backs he has for the rest of the season. What choice does he have other than to express his confidence in them and try his best to build them up in the hopes that they will both perform well and continue to get better. Seems like he is simply trying to be the leader we all expect him to be. If he wasn’t doing something like this we’d be complaining about that too.
Seeing as how we, as fans, are essentially perfect in every aspect of our lives, we certainly have the right to expect and demand the same from college kids and their coaches, especially if those players had a lot of stars by their names out of high school. No off games, no susceptibility to momentum, no getting down on yourself and playing poorly because of it, NO HUMAN EMOTION. I don’t think it’s too much to ask. It is, after all, an attainable goal–just look at Bama, LSU, USC, USCe, Oregon, Texas, Oklahoma, etc., all of whom have figured it out (excluding, of course, the games they lose).
KEEP CALM…we’ve got no 2nd option at QB
Did Shaw have more rushing yards than Gurshall?
Can not remember that stat.
Seem to remember this stat re the O line that has the two big frosh running back which everyone was gushing over until midnight Saturday. The four guys with their hands in the dirt in the 4-3 had 15 tackles for loss and 8 sacks. Let’s stop there, and not embarrass the offensive coaches and their work product.
LOS, LOS, LOS. Saban, Miles, Spurrier, Muschamp. Get the Picture. And one was very well used in the Senator’s previous article / blog.
Miss you Larry Munson!!! But am blessed you lived in my life time. Thanks again Larry…and you too, Senator.
Try not to turn the ball over twice
Funny because it’s true (and likely)
The sixth sense degrees of remaining calm
The back of the shirt says “we have Bobo too”
I would be amused by a shirt with tiny print that says, “If you can read this shirt, my protection broke down.”
This is comment of the year. Enshrine in gold with dancing virgins on either side.
Keep Calm…we’ve got Jasper and Daniel Cobb.
John Dewberry has a year left.
Can’t do much except joke about the situation. If we had the game to do all over again this week, is there any doubt the result would be same.
I hate that GURSHALL nickname so much.
+1. I don’t like it either.
