Only it wasn’t Alabama.
Congrats, Dawgs. You’ve earned it.

HOW BOUT THEM DAWGS!!!! Who is leading the West now?
Still Alabama, the only team in the West with just one conference loss.
Congrats to UGA, BTW.
….and it ain’t the Chickins! Suck it SOS!
maybe Spurrier can have another ring made for them. It’s the first time they’ve finished second two years in a row….except they came in third this year, because Florida also finished ahead of them. Whoops. Cancel that call to the jewelry store!!!!!!!!!!!!
83-7 over last two years is a nice start towards some revenge for 2010.
Well done, Dawgs. Who’s that coming down the tracks?
76 straight unanswered points.
Chizik gone for sure now. Likely VanGorder too. Best case for UGA. The future of playing him yearly scared me.
This is 2007 all over again. I’ll take it.
Wonder if Mrs VanG gets tired of all that packing and unpacking?
With the money her husband makes? Not likely.
town to town, up and down the line…
Probably haven’t moved from the house they had when he coached here.
BVG has a team that can tackle a lick and he still scares you?
I doubt he forgot how to coach in the NFL. They can’t tackle bc they gave up the season a while back.
Chizik’s would have to be one of the most interesting and bizarre coaching tenures just about anywhere.
Larry coker was somewhat similar. MNC his first year followed by a bucket full of fail.
Chizik is the PRIME example of the “Fire Mark Richt because he hasn’t won a MNC ” crowd are off their rocker. I’m sorry but the MNC is a subjective beauty contest, where the SEC East and by extension SEC Championship are things that are won on the field. We just won our sixth SEC East division title last night and will have a chance to win an SEC Championship for a second year in a row….mediocrity my ass.
Slabaach speaking at Macon TD Club says Van Gorder has a 750K buyout. Slabaach also says Kirby Smart possible to Arky or USCe if SOS retires. Rather have it be Arky.
Heard one rumour of Tuberville to Arky, with Tressel to UT.
Charlie Strong on the Plains from Bleacher Report rumour mill.
In other news, who’d have thought Vandy had a chance to be 5-3/8-4? If they win nine games you have to think Franklin will start getting some attention from the big boys.
Coach P*ssAnt doesn’t strike me as someone beholden by a sense of strict loyalty. I gotta believe he’ll be out of Nashville if something more lucrative comes available. Maybe he will even wander back to Maryland and coach the Turtles after Edsall hollows that team out.
Oh, no doubt.
He might want better digs than Maryland, though. Vandy is light years ahead of Maryland right now.
…which means we shouldn’t be surprised when Awbarn gives him a serious look.
That would make me smile a little!
For some reason I am just not scared of Kirby Smart. My perspective is that Saban really runs the show over there. Smart may be a good coach and I am sure he has learned a lot from Nick, but he really isn’t a proven commodity at this point especially has a HC.
A bit like Joker from UK or AU’s Chizik? Competent assistants, but not up to snuff for the head spot.
That was the most satisfying road win in a long, long time.
Beating the absolute dogshit out of this Auburn team was pure joy and I’m glad I was there to see it in person. Got a great video of the stadium emptying out during the beginning of the 4th.
Go Dawgs! Woot!
God, I love shutouts.
I love how CTG doesn’t take his foot off the gas.
Auburn sucks on an epic level. Our defense sleepwalked and still pitched a shut out. Wallace looks like he’s going to be a good player down the road. The offense just flat embarrassed Van Gorder.
See, wearing the right sweatshirt and hat works every time! 38-zip is a thing of beauty. Go Dawgs!
Mark Richt has lost control of the negative commenters
Per negative commenters. They were on the game day thread post victory celebration. One complained several times about the loss to uSC the other whined about how we haven’t won a big game consistently. Minutes! After! the Game! was Won! too. It’s almost as if they just couldn’t stand prosperity. I remember a cartoon video that we use watch with the boys when they were kids. There was this evil force that sucked the joy and happiness from the land. Silly memory for a football blog to be sure . But that is what I thought of when I read their posts.
Bama lost a game! The Tide got outcoached! Obviously Nick Saban is incompetent! FIRE NICK SABAN!!!!!
You should have heard the fool standing one section over from me who was screaming his head off about taking a time out on that 3rd and 20.
I know he always has the perfect 3rd and 20 play ready to call when he is playing Madden, but this is real life….
P.S. hope the Bobo haters give him some dap, since the run up the middle on 3rd and long WORKED!
Read this from the Aubies and enjoy your enjoyment even more:
“Over the last four years, Auburn has, by all accounts, out-recruited the Bulldogs”? Really? I must have missed the nine NFL players on AU’s defense and the top QB in the conference, the top rusher in the conference, and those deep threats at WR on the offense over on the AU sideline. They’re just waiting in the wings for their chance, I guess.
This may be the first time I’ve ever read an account from a non-UGA source that contends that Mark Richt is a great coach and a mediocre recruiter.
Josh Moon is Bradley/Shultz Lite. Truthfully, he’s fortunate go be employed. He only spouts what he hears and reads about football programs other than Bama and AU. He has said on air that he doesn’t watch a lot of games. But, he knows a stinker of an Auburn team when he sees one!
Yeah, I also thought that was a bunch of bull. We have had excellent recruiting classes the past few years and it is such a subjective enterprise to rank recruiting classes in the first place.
Thanks for that link. Awesome report card on the AU team. Feels good to be UGA this week.
“If an opponent ever employs a 14-step QB drop, these defensive ends will be all over it.” Is this anger or acceptance (or angry acceptance)?
That’s in response to the link Lrgk9 posted.
Congrats, Georgia fans.
Football is a funny game. Sometimes a team with 3 SEC losses can win a division and sometimes a team with only one SEC loss will lose a division. Oh Well. Now that Bama is no longer invincible, UGA has a real chance to win the SEC and maybe even more.
Any news on Driskell’s injury?
A sprain, not a break. Not sure how severe yet.
Mike, give us a prospective on the Gators season. We know how youve played each week. I’m talking about being highly ranked, both in the polls and BCS.
Seriously, no snark here. Not trollin you. What’s you’re thoughts?
He might not want to talk about it….. too soon?
Given where we both are now compared to the offseason, I’d say Georgia is about where we hoped (though we took a different path than expected), and I’d say Florida slightly over-performed, though in the way I’d have expected (strong defense, weak offense). Boom and Pease did a pretty good job of keeping their offense in check so that they couldn’t lose games, with the notable exception of our game. Their defense was about as expected, very strong.
Okay, just a little Gator snark. I was listening to the Florida broadcast on satellite radio and twice in about 10 minutes heard the announcers refer to some Gator superlative “since 1990” (“…the most whatever by a Gator team since 1990”, “…the Gators haven’t had this whatever happen since 1990”). I guess they really do think their football history started when Spurrier came to town. 🙂
the Gators keep time by noting “After Steve Spurrier,” or A.S.S. Previous to 1990 was before ASS, but their recorded history really begins with an ASSterisk.
Here’s hoping Spurrier enjoys coming in third in the East again. That has to be about the third best SEC East finish in their history, doesnt it?
I’ve noticed that the Hillbillies don’t refer to Son of Dooley (SOD) as do Dawg fans. I’ve seen it Son of Barbara (SOB). Now that is harsh right there!
Florida exceeded my expectations. As bad as the offense has become, I expected it to be that bad all year. The fact that Florida is 9-1 is due to a defense that is better than a good defense from last year, great special teams and an offense that does not turn the ball over very much (the UGA game being the notable exception.)
I would rather suffer a sharp stick in the eye than lose to UGA. But overall I am very leased with the way the year went.
For next year may I help?
Don’t care who you are … that right there is funny stuff and the proverbial stick in the eye for ol’ Gatah Mike, after which he can employ the pirate patch.
What are the odds UGA and ND play for the national championship in the Sugar Bowl 32 years after the first time they did?
It would almost be too beautiful to describe! But as for odds, I put them at 20-1.
Actually, I’d put it at about 50-50.
Watching ND is like watching a whole different speed of the sport. There’s no way they beat most SEC teams or, as far as that goes, most Southern teams. I mean it…they were lucky as hell to win against PITT. They are lucky and they get a lot of ref and media help. I hope they play an SEC team in a bowl. ND in the BCS is proof of what we always said…some would vote them in if they didn’t field a team. I pray Georgia, Bama, or LSU or SC draws them for a bowl opponent. What would Granny Holtz do if ND played SC? Wow!
While we’re on the subject of ND, they really didn’t beat Stanford. The Stanford back scored the tying TD but the incompetent/crooked refs just didn’t put up their hands and the worthless turd in the TV booth refused to overturn the obviously incorrect call.
P.S. I just don’t get Holtz at all. He got runnoft from both ND and USCe and yet he has his nose so far up their collective asses that you can’t see his face. If the guy had one ounce of self-respect he would STFU about them instead of being a shill for both of them.
I would also bet that ND would lose to Clemson, Florida State, and possibly Duke and Ga. Tech.
If you haven’t noticed, I believe the Irish are WAY overated!
All the more reason to hope that WE get to play them in the BCSNCG.
Actually you gys are Co-Champs with Florida, both have one loss and you get to go to the dance in the ATL. Just check your trophy case for your 92′ Co-Champ trophy
If so then we also were co-champs with UT in ’07. Just sayin.’
