“Miracles on the Plains”

I’m not surprised they’ve made a film about Gus’ 2013 rabbit’s foot to show on the SEC Network.  I’m not even surprised Richt and Saban agreed to appear in it.

It’s just a shame that Tray Matthews isn’t.  I mean, who’s got a better point of view?

    Watching that MFer would almost be as bad as being with my mother in law.

    I’m sure I’ll welcome that show with the same amount of joy as hearing the words, “Turn your head to the side and cough.”

  3. Why in the hell would Richt and Saban agree to appear in that? I wouldn’t care that it’s an SEC Network production. I would have told the WWL and the Birmingham suits to stick their documentary up their ass and say “I don’t have time for this $#!+”

      I certainly won’t have time for this shit. I read the book, don’t need the movie.

      Richt agreed to appear because, as he’s said before, “winning isn’t the most important thing”. I have no idea why Saban would appear.

        I think that this sums up everything you have ever posted on this board in just 2 sentences. Maybe in the future you can save yourself the trouble of all that typing by just copying and pasting this into every thread about 25 times. Think of all the other stuff you can get done.

        • The absolute certainty of his pyschoanalysis of Richt’s motivation / drive for winning (as if JC has ever spent substantive one on one time with the man to understand him and what actually makes him tick) is my favorite part of his daily postings.

            Just quoting the man, don’t need psychoanalysis to repeat what he has said.

            • LOL. Bless your heart. You’ve twisted one thing he has said about having competing priorities in his life to fit your narrative. That doesn’t mean his passion / drive / desire / whatever for winning championships isn’t a top priority in his life or that those two concepts are mutually exclusive. Just because a man has perspective doesn’t mean he lacks the drive to succeed at the highest levels of his profession and because it’s an inherently intangible quality, there’s no way to prove or disprove it without spending some quality time with the guy. For whatever reason though, you interpret his comments at a 50 thousand foot level as an absolute indictment on the man which is why it is comical to me and why I use the term psychoanalysis. Would you prefer “Sunday morning psychologist”?

        Dang JC. Your anti-Richt posts are so regular that I’m beginning to think it’s more personal than game related. You act as though he is the worst coach to ever grace the sidelines. He hasn’t done too terrible a job while at the same time maintaining the one thing that many coaches don’t have…integrity. But cheer up. One day maybe we will get a fowl-mouth, red-panty-carrying, motorcycle-riding, dope-smoking-allowing coach that will almost win a many games as CMR.
        Question: If we win a natty or a SECC soon, would that calm your distain for CMR for a while?

          If you really read what I say about him, you’ll know I don’t have “disdain” for him, I actually like him as a man and I think he’s a good coach. I don’t think he is “great” and I don’t have a lot of confidence in his ability to win championships. He’s shown too many times that he will have a game where the team isn’t ready to play or he’ll have a brain cramp that loses a game for me to have great confidence in him winning a championship. I’ve always said he is capable of doing a great job, he has enough wins when I thought for sure the team would get beat that I know he is capable. I pull for him to win every game. I’d love nothing more than to win an SEC championship except maybe winning a NC.

          “Disdain” implies a personal dislike. I’d say I’m exactly the opposite of that. Personally, I think he’s great and I can’t think of a better head coach in all of college football when it comes to being a good person. He is a great man of faith (the reason I think he will go into some sort of full time ministry when he is out of football), a great family man, a great mentor to his players and from what I’ve heard, a great philanthropist.

            Okay. I guess it is possible that you ARE a realist and able to give ‘tough love’ comments about someone you actually like. I know people like that…just not many. Most people’s opinions are swayed by their personal feelings. You know, love being blind and all.
            Also, even though we don’t see eye-to-eye on CMR, I appreciate the way your responses are always ‘in control’ even when answering insulting comments. Just saying.

              FYI; pre 2008 season, I was all for renaming Sanford “Mark Richt field at Sanford Stadium”. From ’01 to ’07, Georgia football was, on the whole, the best it had ever been. Even during the Herschel years, the program was not as talented overall as Richt’s first 6 years or so. If you had asked me after the ’07 season, I would have said by 2014 we would have three more SEC championships and at least one NC.

              I would absolutely love to be proved wrong about Richt.

  4. I hope they enjoyed that little miracle play, I will take Richts’ 40ppg average vs Aub over the last three years to their 13ppg avg vs UGA any day…watching last year beat down was like getting to shove the rabbits foor and a canebreak hare right up Gus’s ass.

    Why doesn’t the SEC Network do as story on how UGA completely shut down Gus’s geat offense in 2014, and ask Gus to appear and give his thoughts on getting his ass stomped.

    A little something I saw at the end of the 2013 LSU game.

    4 and whatever, LSU throws a deep pass, if the ball hits the turf game over.

    Just bat it down right, everyone knows that.

    Guess who comes in diving for the interception?

    #28 in your program and #1 in your heart Trigga Trey.

    So he had already done it once before. The coaches all missed it and didnt coach him up.

    Funny how that stuff comes back to bite you.

  8. Trigga is gonna have a great point of view when he watches that replay on Auburns new megatron. Hope he enjoys that this year.
