    It must be that being a coach at the FCS level gives some coaches an inferiority complex. Johnson is a lot like Jim Donnan, he can’t take criticism or even a compliment without a smart ass comeback. I really believe the guy has personality issues.

    Paul Johnson is a straight-up a$$wipe. I’ll bet his own kids don’t even give him Christmas presents.

    I must respectfully disagree about the “meteor pissing match”. In my view, Cutcliffe said something unnecessarily stupid, and Johnson rightfully put him back in his place.

      Both of them are first class a-holes. cutcliffe called Champ Bailey “chump Bailey” after a ut win back in ’98(?). I don’t recall Champ ever speaking a negative word about… anything. Champ always had class and did whatever he was asked to do. Can’t see why an assistant coach needs to trash an opposing player after a win – but that’s the kind of jerk cutcliffe is.

      Of course, cpj is the exact same class of person. Trashed QB vad lee after he transferred, and trashed his DC Roof earlier this year.

    “Their offensive line is playing well” Just ignore that, it’s the same as saying we have a great long snappah.

  9. So. Spurrier says “Missouri was one of the best tackling teams we’ve played in a long time.” Yet, Missouri doesn’t tackle in practice. Ever. They’re not even wearing pads except for games.

    That’s interesting.

      They don’t get many injuries in practice that way, do they?

      • No, they don’t. We’ll see how they tackle Saturday. Seems strange to an old football guy like me, but I’m always open to something better.

        Spurrier doesn’t just blow smoke, so I’m wondering if the way they work on tackling in practice could help them rep and ingrain getting good angles with the body in proper position, with proper leverage, coil, and so on, getting everything right, but stopping short of the strike itself. Because if you get all that, all you need is desire to make an effective strike.

        Most, heck almost all, of our tackling issues in the past have been in those areas. So it’s interesting.

        But if there’s a way to work on and maintain good tackling, and still be very physical, without the physical banging (and we’re talking about during the season here, particularly the last 2/3), then that’s an interesting thing.

      I was typing as you posted and didn’t see your Wild Dawg fotmation name until after posting. I have advocated that name for several years since it’s perfect for that formation and hopefully our D. Two minds…..?

    Blazevich is great in another way; he peels the double coverage off Rome and/or whenever next Sat, due to his presence, one or the other is not going to be covered. If I ever saw a “Pass their eyes out” game coming up, this is it. Four WRs and two TEs who can fly. A couple more WRs plus RBs coming out into the backfield.

    If Pruitt can hold’em tight by the nose long enough while the air corps kicks’em in the ass, that can open a can of whoop-ass in the 4th that’s all tanks on the ground. Of course, if they bite on the run in the Dingo formation, Todd can lay another defilade pass on’em to Blaze or Rome, just for friggin’ jollies. If Mizzou intercepts a couple, we will need every quick-TD play in our playbook.

    This team doesn’t need any “Oh. no!”s Sat. They need us yelling every encouragement we can for this battle of two good teams. And, please, act gracious after we win.

  14. I still don’t expect much from Mitchell or Wesley. One didn’t see the field and the other made a cameo appearance. I’ll be surprised if they see the field more than 10 snaps combined. Hell they’re just now getting back into practice.

      Neither do I. Nor do I think the receivers are the reason we have an inadequate passing game.

        Mizzou can’t afford not to cover them when they are in the game. Even if they act as decoys, the penalty is too great to ignore them. They can free up Blaze and Rome, plus others. The tunnel screen in the middle could work all day.

        Like

        • That’s right. And we need to maximize all that and be very effective at it, IMO. We have to make up for our weakness any way we can.

          Hadn’t thought of that, but that play might be very effective against this particular defense. Also the sprint draw up the middle, but I haven’t seen that play for a long time now.

  15. 70 of Mason’s 110 pass attempts have been for 10 yards or less. Very smart of Bobo…considering. if we’re going down I’d prefer it be by means other than handing(passing) it to then.

  16. We’re one-dimensional on D as well as O. Probably no easier plan of beating a top 25 team. The manual is free. Hopefully we’re good enough to overcome this.

      • Don’t be so sensitive. I said plan not execute. The plan doesn’t get any easier when we’ve shown no ability to go down field or have any semblance of a good passing game. Teams will continue to bring most of the D in close. I still like our chances against anyone if were limit penalties and TO but I’m not gonna deny that we’re currently about as one dimensional we’ve ever been. Fortunately, that one dimension is about as good as we’ve had and his help isn’t too bad.

    C’mon, you guys. Why has Richt shut down interviews of players and coaches? It ain’t for upping the number of running plays. They gotta be crankin’ up an air game that we (and Mizzou) think isn’t there. We have to pass (a lot) to win this game. The Dingo formation will be used to add to Mizzou’s confusion. Three simple plays can be run out of it over and over to suck’em in and spread’em out.

    Bobo and some of the O players are grinning to themselves for some plays they have worked out that have never been seen at UGA before. Several plays have already been run that should tip us off that this may be an O change at midseason. I would expect that many are designed for Mizzou’s D rush at Mason on passing downs. And I don’t want to hear any bitchin’ when a simple delay play is run. Our RBs will get their due in yards after we free them up somewhat.

        And I haven’t touched ganja for several days. It’s all out there in articles from many differing sources, but we get hung up on respecting the other team more as we approach gametime. Mauk and Co deserve respect, but we have mo-buttuh athletes who can prevent this single facit planning agin’ our running game. That’s why I prefer to read practice reports with teeth. If you can get your hands (and eyes) on enough, you will get a differing opinion of our O as well.

    Read yesterday’s practice report in R&B if you doubt the dot connections I’ve made. Hot passing practice! The mere presence of Mitchell , his one-handed grab, the light mood of the receiving corps – tell me you don’t sniff some of the same projections. You bet it’s all guesses, but if you want to get your head out of the downer articles about how great Mizzou is, alternate coaching plans can easily be inferred.

    Since the chance recognition factor won’t occur very often, a good facsimile of my wife can be seen at Bulldawg Illustrated; re, Georgia Girls. The photo of Cullen Albright O’Steen is a match for the Amnesian. She saw it and agrees. Ms O’Steen is late 30s, but my wife is a month into her 68th year. Face, hair and figure all match and she is often mistaken as a younger woman. Even her chickens look younger when she’s near them. Grandmother to 4, she remains a heroine to many in San Diego and would be recognized from the Georgia Girl photo. In anonymity, a chance to see blogger family similarity doesn’t often appear and in this case I couldn’t resist since she deserves the plug after all that I’ve written.
