I’m drained. And I never want to see another three-man rush again.
What a freakin’ incredible game.
Filed under Georgia Football
Incredible. Thank you, Special Teams.
For a moment – but thankfully only a moment – third and Willie lived. May it RIP.
3rd and 23, I almost broke a bone in anger. Thank you Richt and Murray for covering that up.
Thank you for breaking the Gameday Curse, too. Man, I was sick of that…
Todd “Willie” Grantham almost lost this game for the Dawgs with the “prevent” defense on 3rd and 23. How many times will it take to learn that you can’t give a quality QB all day to pick your pass D apart? Plus, I’ve seen enough to Todd “Willie” Grantham’s D to know that he is not the answer at DC. Be gone after this season Todd “Willie.”
Yes, an amazing game.
I love me some CMR and AM is The Man.
Sen, you might not want to see a three man rush again, and I certainly don’t. But I don’t want to see two other things: underneath crossing routes running free and our db’s looking at each other with their arms outstretched and palms upward.
How bout Floyd though. JHC ain’t too shabby either.
Yeah, the crossing routes were a problem. Otherwise, the front 7 had a decent game. Our DBs are a cardiologist’s best friends.
I’m not pulling down 750K like Todd Grantham, but I think I would’ve dropped our very athletic DE’s into zone coverage occasionally to disrupt those crossing routes.
You mean OLBs I hope
No, he meant DEs. And the NG sometimes, too.
it was one of their(meaning LUS’s) defensive ends who picked off Murray’s pass wasn’t it?
That big dude was a D-Tackle methinks.
So you must have noticed Floyd 20 yards from the line of scrimmage on that 3rd and 23 conversion, no? I would have preferred we continued to blitz Mett with Floyd instead of putting him down field where he doesn’t belong
The last conversation I had with dad was after the LSU game 10 years ago. If he had lived that prevent defense on 4th and 22 would have done him in.
Sorry, my dad.
I can sympathize with LSU fans tonight. We both watched the exact same game from opposite sides. That was the most ridiculous 60 minutes i have ever watched.
I know that AM is glad he came back tonight.
I wished them all the best and told ’em we’d see ’em in December. Was I being charitable, I dunnow, but I couldn’t hope for a better SEC championship than a repaeat of that.
I didn’t hear a whole lot of smack talk after the game – I think most could appreciate the incredible nature of the game, and how both teams left it all out there…
Where’s my multi-year contract? I got kids to feed. Also need a new box of crayons.
Finally, at the very end we got some pressure, and it made the difference. I’m 36 and we’ve have some really good offenses in my lifetime, 92′ comes to mind, and we have generally been much better on offense than defense most years but I have to say I don’t think we’ve ever been this good on offense.
“…I don’t think we’ve ever been this good on offense.”
I agree. methodical and precise passing 20 yards downfield without M Mitchel and T Gurley. Bobo, AM, the receivers and OL have come together and seem unstoppable. Congrats to them. If our young D can continue to grow…we will be in good shape.
“I don’t think we’ve ever been this good on offense..”
Ah….ever is a long time…
Mett still had the higher QBR though. Obviously Richt made the wrong choice.
Mason better than both.
Y’all GOOD. LOL
grammatically shouldn’t that have been “y’all R GOOD”? +1
Sorry to forget. Does anybody disagree that the game ball goes to the o line? AM had all day all day. Those guys were studs.
Oline for sure. Gave Murray all the time he wanted and he was surgical
I’ll piggyback here. When’s the last time you’ve seen an LSU team get so little pressure on us? A very, very good game from the OL. Whatever tongue-lashing they got after Clemson paid off. Aaron, take ’em out for ice cream.
Agreed that the line performed well, but that’s not your normal LSU defensive line either. They don’t really have any stars on that line like they did last year.
It’s tough to be a star when you lose all those NFL folks, since the BS artists on TV can’t really recognize a star unless somebody from the NFL tells them.
I thought LSU’s D line was pretty damn good, especially 90, ask Murray.
The rotation on our O line really does seem to work in the face of all conventional wisdom…damn good job.
Damn, will the talking heads admit they were wrong? All I heard from them was Hill was the best back, and their two receivers would eat up our secondary, never thinking we could do the same. We beat a damn good team today,
those WR’s were damn good though.
I think they make Mett look better than he is.
This was one of the best games I’ve seen since … well, when we beat the Chickens. This UGA team is very, very entertaining. They may not be #1 at the end of the season (but, who knows, maybe they will) but they’re already one of my all-time favorites.
As an aside, though it seems to be a fairly even-tempered one, I’d say we’ve got quite the rivalry going with LSU. There have been some damn good games between the two teams over the last decade.
Ain’t that the second tie this year?!? I remember someone here arguing that Vegas gives the home team three points and so that made Clemson not a loss for us.
Ah, o well, maybe next year.
We get it Coach. We know you believed in the Dawgs and we understand the Karmic Bitch Slap exorcised on the quad. But if you end up at the WLOCP, reverse the curse forever, and just don the Dog.
You did good.
I don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t ever want Corso picking the Dawgs.
+50 million. Corso is a total jinx. For us.
Look, dood, I have had some shitty things said about me from time to time, but to say I am really a bad football coach with a pseudonym is about the worst.
Trust me, I am NOT Lee Corso, and I damn sure approved this message.
On to Knoxville.
Stat of game – LSU 77 yards rushing. Give d line and linebackers some credit. Secondary looked lost.
Secondary: less smack talk, more smackin’
Secondary= 4 Freshman at one point. Langley, Mauger, Matthews, and Wiggins
D Line looks to be progressing. Secondary not so much.
The D-line and LBs are pretty damn good. The CBs and Safeties………..
SO HAPPY FOR AM! I hope the media gladly removes the rather large monkey from your back. Balls out all the way, young man!
Might have a heart attack before the end of the season. So stressful. But damn, that was a satisfying win.
Congratulations, Aaron Murray.
I’m not going to jump to criticize Grantham just yet, but I wonder why no one seems to be talking about Scott Lakatos. Clearly, the weak spot is the secondary. Granted, it’s a *very* young unit, but Swann seems to get burned just as often as the freshmen.
On the other hand, JHC had an epic game. I’m not smart enough to know why we are so bad on defense. Falling down (first LSU TD) doesn’t help. No plan to disrupt the crossing route is another.
+1. Damian Swann=Bryan Evans.
Does AM have any chance at the Heisman? Seems like he should be in the mix.
Pretty sure you need a machine to build up the Heisman talk and that just isn’t going to happen at Georgia.
If anything, Mason should be in those talks.
+1. Well done, sir.
+10 Stop it Mike my wife thinks I’m weird when I’m sitting at the computer laughing out loud..stop it your making me look bad.
I would say no to the heisman talk. Obviously the story line going forward will be about mettenberger playing awesome and coming up just short ;)
Yeah, I don’t expect, “can’t win the big one”.
I am totally exhausted. When did the SEC become the PAC 12….whew.
One more thing about Aaron Murray. That young man has given his blood and soul to the University of Georgia for the past 5 years and has taken tons of criticism…some deserved but much of it totally bogus. The O Line did great and a whole bunch of folks stepped up…but Murray is as gutty and savy as they come. I am so happy for him and even happier that the nay sayers have nothing to talk about for another week.
All the talk about Mett is nice, but there were a bunch of other kids on that field today…on both teams…that deserved some recognition but all we could here was “Mett, Mett, Mett, we love Mett”. Well, Met had a great game, but there was something AM did better…throw the ball when flushed out of the pocket and he even ran for at least one first down. The defense played fine against the run…and I don’t think they’ll see another offense this good until the SECCG.
We won. We beat LS&U. Larry Munson and Claude McBride are smokin’ a big ass cigar. And, I bet Erk’s got one, too!
How ’bout them Dawgs!
+ fucking 1 milllllion!!!
Just like Carolina – enjoy the win Dawgs. Who gives a shit about the how – you earned it! Go Dawgs! 44-41 all the way to Atl baby!
BTW…when a RB goes in motion, and pulls the LB into the flats for coverage, thus opening the middle for a drag route to come underneath the Cover 2….that’s not the DBs being bad at covering a wide-out, that’s an elite-level OC making a precision adjustment.
In the first half, (in man our db would run across the formation and couldn’t keep up with the crossing receiver. In the second half we adjusted to a lb picking up the crosser. Neither worked. Why not try a zone blitz like they kept saying Chavis likes. Drop a DE into coverage anticipating the crosser? We didn’t do that once that I saw.
Right, that’s just what Venables did for CU to get the Murray INT in that game.
That’s what Chavous did (drop a D-lineman into coverage) that got the INT for LSU, too.
Stick to making bad country music, cuz if you can’t see our DBs struggle with coverage then you have no business analyzing football…..FYI
3rd n 23. My goodness.
I can’t believe Georgia held LSU to less than 100 yards rushing and the score was as close as it was. If you would have told me Georgia was going to do that in would have thought Georgia would have won by 17 points or better.
I think that was the best crowd since Auburn 2007.
BIG win! Great crowd. Go DOGS!
Something else that deserves mention (and Danielson pointed it out during the broadcast): Credit to the Georgia coaching staff for recruiting the absolute hell out of the QB position.
Ain’t that the truth. Not only do we recruit it well, but I don’t think there is another team in the country who develops it as well either.
Please tell me Mettenberger is the best QB we’ll see for the rest of the season, and that no one else is going to shred our secondary like that.
Until the SEC Championship game, I hope that is true. All the talk about our secondary overlooks what a fantastic game Mettenberger had. The kid can flat out ball.
Credit to Mett, he played fantastic. My hat’s off to him and really the whole LSU team. They played well enough to win. I would prefer not to see them again in Atlanta, but I’m afraid there’ll be a good chance for that…
I can tell you the first part is probably true.
To bad our special teams suck.
Waka, waka … +1
How we got 44 points with Gurley on the side line for more than a half and the absolute MUGGING our receivers had to deal with, I’ll never know. Damn good game by some Damn Good Dawgs.
Gee, Will Friend sure looks a lot smarter to me this week. I apologize to him and Marshall Morgan. Hopefully, one day I will need to apologize for how I now feel about Grantham. Lakatos may have his faults, but CTG is making the calls and getting the $$$.
Before I say that I wish we had gotten Chavis, has anyone noticed that his defenses seem to lose a lot on final drives?
I can’t get over how good this offense is. And thank god it is that good, or this would be a long season. There are some bright spots on defense though. The DLine and linebackers seem to be getting better against the run. Harvey-Clemons looks like a legitimately good safety. IF the back seven can ever figure out what coverages they’re supposed to be running, the defense could be good enough for Georgia to win a national title with this offense. You know, assuming a one-loss team gets in.
Also, the prospects for next season are even better than this year if Mason is a halfway competent QB.
Next year? Our prospects would be better THIS YEAR if Mason was our starter!!!!!11!!!!!
