    I love that question from Shaq Wiggins. It reminds me of something a kid would ask his parents before doing something he’s seen before but has never done. There’s an innocence and amticipation to it, and it’s a nice reminder that he’s just a kid with the world in front of him.

    I hope he has a huge day in Jax.

    Bielma sounds like a little bitch. Great piece by Connelly. Ramik has the right attitude for a player. I’m still pissed about it.

    Those remarks to the Mizzou kicker are pathetic. I know every fan base has morons like this, but even a moron can see the damn laces were wrong.

    Those fan meltdown threads are funny if it is not you on the receiving end. As much as I love CFB, it is pathetic human beings like these that make me wonder some time. And Georgia has as many as any of these schools.


    • Remember the fan reaction to Edwards dropping that pass in the 2002 Cocktail Party game?

        Glad there wasn’t Twitter back then. Nevermind that it was the false start near the goal line (Watson, maybe?) and the personal foul (Foster, definitely) were the real backbreakers on scoring drives.

      I think their vitriol is even more disgusting and pathetic based on the fact that they still control their own destiny. Could it be that they may actually need Baggett to make a kick against to UT, UM or TAMU? Jeez!

    Hate it for the kicker. My youngest was a 4 year kicker in HS and I’ve sat in the stands and heard the murmurs when things went wrong. But the whole twitter thing is way over the top. I asked him if the laces really mattered. His response. “Naw, at that distance the sweatspot is below the laces.”

    “We already showed you that the laces were in instead of out for the field goal, but that won’t matter to most of Mizzou’s fans.”

      This is one of the reasons I try to never blame a specific player….praise them, yes, blame them…no. I just don’t understand how any fan of any school can say stuff like this about a kid who is doing his damnedest to bring home the bacon.

      I guess the problem with Twitter is that it is subject to whimsey. (Aside from the fact 90 percent of the tweets have no value as communication.)

      Wish the kicker would tweet something like…”hey, at least I was out there, trying…not sitting in the stands complaining”

        Kicking involves much more than swatting a football around. There is a lot of mental work that goes on. Coordination/timing between snapper, holder and kicker. That on top of hours of just repetitions from different spots on the field. My wife still closes her eyes when a kicker kicks. lol.
        The following quote was above the desk in my son’s room his entire football career. If he had a particularly good kick he wrote it down along with the date on this sheet. It was one of the things I put into a folder and saved when he left home to attend Georgia. Perhaps someday he will have a son or daughter that might enjoy having it…or learning something from it.

        “If one were properly to perform a difficult and subtle act, he should first inspect the end to be achieved and then, once he had accepted the end as desirable, he should forget it completely and concentrate solely on the means. By this method he would not be moved to false action by anxiety or fear. Very few people learn this.”

    Gamecocks shut down Mizzou’s offense in the second half. Take a look at the stats. What happened to Mizzou was what happened to Dawgs at Vandy. You have the lead, the ball, the clock, and game winding down…that is a lot in your favor. All you need to do is make 10 yards in 4 plays and kkep the chains and clock moving.

    I think Bill Connelly is a terrific writer with a solid grasp on the CFB game, always enjoy reading his work and getting his insight. I visited the Rock m nation site during the week leading up to the UGA game, and afterwards. Quite a strange mixture of folks commenting there on a wide variety of subjects for a football blog, but mostly very grounded posters (except that one fool that continued to harp that Franklin was taken out on a dirty play. Geez. I tried to make that same case in my mind for Gurley’s injury against LSU but they were both continuation plays and were not even close to being a foul. In fact, had either been called a penalty the rest of the football world would be saying that is what is becoming so wrong with football today. Both just tough plays where injuries happen in football and we all suffer when they happen.) That finish last Saturdayhad to be jolting to the Mizzou fans for so many reasons.



    Easy fix on the twitter BS…don’t have one.

    For what it’s worth, there were several suggestions for awkward Palmer questions…Macon just decided against them for the sake of professionalism.

    A lot of those tweets looked like they came from bettors and not fans.

    Apparently, Bart Bilima is attempting some payback. He sent two games worth of film with only one touchdown included.

    People who attack a player like they did the Missouri kicker really need to re-evaluate their own lives. Sad.

    NCAA lawyers are left with only one logic tool, one of those twisty curves back on-it-self Dentist picks.

    Shallow water and big draft – meet reef.
