Ich bin ein Gator.

Sometimes a Dawg’s gotta do what a Dawg’s gotta do.

This week, it’s root for a second conference loss for the Gamecocks.

But by all means make it a slobberknocker, fellas.  Quadruple overtime wouldn’t hurt my feelings, either.

    I feel so dirty.

    The road to the SECCG goes through Jacksonville. Can we finally show up and win a big game? Man, I hope so.

    I also hope South Carolina loses to both Florida and Tennessee. Then, if we win out, they can’t bitch about the schedule.

    • JasonC

      I kinda hope SC only loses to Florida and of course we win out. Then, Spurrier will be extra whiny, but nothing he can do about it.

    C’mon gator, git up ‘n go!

    I find myself growing increasingly weary of requiring others to fail in order to achieve success for the Dawgs. If they are deserving of success, would they not seize the opportunities presented to them? Having watched USC @ LSU, it only reminded me that South Carolina has passed UGA by. An appearance in the SECCG will only further demonstrate what most fans already know…the Dawgs are not capable of competing with top level teams. Was 2011 a “Felton” year for this program?

      People like you take all the fun out of being a fan. Jeebus, just STFU for a change! This is college football. Part of the FUN is rooting for others to lose. It’s been this way since there have been polls.

      • Skeptic Dawg

        Rooting for your rivals to lose is one thing. I root for Florida and Auburn to lose every weekend. However, rooting for teams to lose so this program can be handed success is another story. One, as I said above, that I am growing weary of. It is time for this program to earn success. Something Richt and Co. Have failed to do for some time now (some time now = 6 years). And before you ask, the 2011 Dawgs were gifted an opportunity to play in the SECCG by way of an Auburn W over USC. It is time that Richt and his team earn their keep.

        • Skeptic Dawg

          It is your own self delusion and unwillingness to accept Richt and this program for what he/they truly are that takes the fun out of it for you. Not me, nor fans like myself.

          • X-Dawg

            Now you are pushing the envelope. I am not delusional in thinking that a 5-1 team still has a chance.You have given up – not me. I’m having fun, you are not.

          • Mayor of Dawgtown

            Texas Tech 49–West Virginia 14. Wasn’t it you that said only last week that UGA ought to try replace CMR with Dana Holgorsen? I’m looking at you Skeptic.

          • GaskillDawg

            Florida in 2006 got to the BCS CG only because UCLA beat #2 USC on a blocked PAT or something. I’ll bet the UF realists were pissed because UF backed into the BCS game. Only the Disney Gators were happy.

            • Puffdawg

              “I’ll bet the UF realists were pissed because UF backed into the BCS game. Only the Disney Gators were happy.”

              And, as everyone knows, the Gators were just happy to be there seeing as nobody in the world gave them a chance to win against the Troy Smith led Buckeyes. I don’t even know why they showed up, because, you know, upsets never happen in college football.

        • X-Dawg

          2011 was not a gift. UGA earned the SECE title by having fewer SEC losses than SCAR. You have bought in to the SOS propaganda.

        • adam

          If we go 11-1, how can you say the team hasn’t earned their way? Gotta beat the hated Gators.

        • Hackerdog

          You say UGA was gifted an opportunity to play in the SECCG because Auburn beat USC. I say that USC couldn’t take care of business and beat a bad Auburn team that lost to the other 5 ranked teams it played by an average of 28 points.

    • Debby Balcer

      I find myself growing increasingly weary of your negativity. I don’t understand why you need to always try to find the gloom and doom. GO DAWGS. Rarely does a team go undefeated. Usually it takes wins from other teams to settle things out.

    • ZeroPointZero

      Whaa! Enjoy the schedule. We’re not world beaters. Little luck and have fun. Hate uf. Join me. Beat uf and all is good. You’ll feel better.

    • Biggus Rickus

      Really, STFU, or at least think your position through more. Under the scenario that would have to play out after a Florida victory over South Carolina, Georgia would have to beat an undefeated and third, possibly second ranked Florida team in Jacksonville. Would Georgia be “deserving” after that?

    • Sanford222view

      So I guess every team that has ever reached the SEC Championship Game without being undefeated in the conference didn’t earn its way there.

      • Puffdawg

        That would be, like, 10 of the last 11 on the East side. Not sure about the West but I’d suspect it’s about the same.

    • AusDawg85

      Yeah! Look how Bama won the west last year, and the SECCG!

    • 2006 Florida Gators, 2007 LSU Tigers, 2008 Florida Gators

      We respectfully disagree. We “required others to fail in order to achieve success.” We assume you don’t give us credit for conference and national titles?

    • AlphaDawg

      In Defense of SD, those teams simply lost. We on the other hand, were wrapped in drum and taken to the woodshed. I feel dirty now.

      • Puffdawg

        First, two of those three lost at home to unranked opponents. Second, there is no defense of Skeptic Dog. He’s a bet welshing sockpuppet front running bandwagon jumping fairweather fan whose only mission is to put Georgia down. Nevermore is this apparent than in his comment, “An appearance in the SECCG will only further demonstrate what most fans already know…the Dawgs are not capable of competing with top level teams.”

        If the Dawgs make the SECCG they will had to have beaten the current #2 team in the BCS to get there. There is no rhyme or reason to his comments, only negative rhetoric he probably picked up from some unsubstantiated source on Sports and Grits.

  6. Raven

    Don’t you people realize that NOTHING in the world matters except a frikin National Championship?

  7. Brian Dawg

    Gotta love the HBC. In the postgame presser, he commented that they seem to keep losing to the teams from the “west side” of the conference. He is riding that horse all the way……

  8. Hogbody Spradlin

    LSU proves again that you can win big games in spite of poor quarterback play. Mettenberger couldn’t hit the proverbial barn door last night.

    LSU also proves, indirectly, my theory of why we aren’t better: lack of toughness and discipline. Maybe it’s time for the coaches to make our players fear them more than the opposition. The Van Gorder-Callaway friction back in the good old days wasn’t all bad; made men out of the players.

    • Lrgk9

      They’re Kids, You Gotta Scare ‘Em !

    • charlottedawg

      LSU also proves why it’s important to manage your roster well and develop good O and D lines. That in a nutshell is why we got embarrassed and they beat USC.

    • Scorpio Jones, III

      Wonder how Hutson wudda done?

      In a reflection of the tone here….please note the intense snarkification.

  9. rugbydawg79

    How do you think those Texas fans feel this morning and WVU fans ?

  10. ChilliDawg

    Fire the OBC! He can’t win the big games.

  11. Brandon

    If LSU had our defense they’d have gotten run out of the stadium too, instead their defense kept them in it until the running game got on track, what do we have to do to get an aggressive well disciplined defense at UGA again? I am not being negative it is just so frustrating to me, teams who play great defense are never considered “finesse teams”, they are always in a game, never embarassed. I am sick of us wasting offensive talent with blown coverage and not going after people. We have the talent, there is no excuse.

  12. Sanford222view

    We don’t have to “chomp” do we?

  13. Uglydawg

    Gotta bite the bullet and pull for the Gators.
    I think SC will win thiis game and go to play Bama in the dome. Still, anything can happen, especially if Florida can stop SC’s big plays on returns.
    5-1 IS a good start to this season. Expecting perfection will only buy you dissapointment and misery. Perfection is very rare and fleeting.
    ZeroPointZero is right…UGA is very entertaining but not world beaters, the schedule if very fun and all of this does not rise to the level of life and death. I predict the Dawgs lose one more. That’s pretty good, and looking at really good in 13.

  14. Boz

    So you’re saying there’s a chance?

  15. AthensHomerDawg

    LSU beating the upstarts was just the beginning. That is 1/3 of the plan. Floridas gota win and Georgia has to defeat the Muschomp. So let’s not get too gigitty just yet. Go Gators….. CHOMP! (” I have not yet begun to defile myself.”)

    • Always Someone Else's Fault

      Vandy accomplished some things last night by moving the pocket and then running out of those looks. Do you think Georgia can execute those sets?

      • AthensHomerDawg

        Good point. I hope with this much time to get ready we stop looking so out of sync. After a gloomy post uSC defeat week, I’m starting to feel optimistic about our chances. We remain weak across the O line, ST play is poor, and our D is not “communicating.” Two of those is fixable, one ain’t! Can we scheme around our O line’s short comings with two Frosh rbs? I don’t want to get too up!

  16. Scorpio Jones, III

    Boys and girls, I am sure Will would appreciate your support. My suspicion is he won’t need it much.

    I suspect the thing for us to do is worry about Kentucky. Unfortunate though it may be, the Fucking Gaytorz can take care of they own selves, them.

  17. Slaw Dawg

    I’d prefer for the Gators to win, of course, but it won’t be THAT big a deal for me one way or the other. First of all, the ‘Cocks are certainly capable of beating the Gators and then demonstrating major suckitude against, say, UT or Arky. In fact, whether they beat the Gators or not, you can probably expect UT shaping up as a major trap game for them. On the other side of the coin, we have to first beat UK, and I don’t care how lousy they looked yesterday, the Dawgs should take nothing for granted. Then we haveta beat the Gators no matter what, and my year long optimism about that game went out the window about the time SC scored its 3d TD v us. Then, whether we beat the Gators or not (but esp if we do), we’ll have Ole Miss waiting as our own trap game, and I’m one ol’ Dawg who NEVER takes the Auburn game for granted.

    And the fact is, the Gators probably will win. I may eat these words, but I don’t think it’s that damn hard to figure out how to beat SC. Everybody knows what they’re going to do on O and D, and if you have the talent (which UF does), it’s just a matter of having the consistency and discipline to stop them from doing it. Georgia left its consistency and discipline on the field after the Vandy game, but UF is likely to perform as if beating SC is important. Then they’ll be sky high for the WLOCP.

    I’m not one who gives up on a season until it’s clearly done, but it’s hard to like our chances to get to Atlanta or even to 10 wins.

  18. Mike

    Thanks for all your well wishes, guys and gals. It’s only for a week though and then we can get back to the honest, mutual hate. Hopefully the Mighty Gators will take care of the Gamecocks and set up a bodacious WLOCP.

  19. bfrazier34

    Saturday, we are all Gators.

    Fortunately, I will be in Lexington and drunk on freshly distilled bourbon, so I won’t have to actually experience that reality.
