With the games Fournette and Lambert had, I wasn’t sure who would be named the conference player of the week on offense.
Turns out they split the baby.
Co-OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK – GREYSON. LAMBERT.
He went 24-for-25 (96%!), 330 yards and 3 TDs.

That’s fair. And congrats to Greyson for an honor well earned.

Very fair. I hard to beat either of those performances.
I said on Monday last week, I’ll trust that the coaches know what they are doing with the QB and the offense after I see the USCe game.
Welp, I trust them.
What was Greyson’s QBR for the one game? Saw a 176, but thought that was his average rating for all three games.
246.5. Total QBR was 97.8 (maxes out at 100). I’m guessing his adjusted QBR will end up being 100 or very close to it.
Oh, I found it. It was 98.5.
The 246.5 was what I was looking for. Thanks, that’s Biggus of you. What’s the highest
Saw three systems yesterday and none seemed to be based on the same numbering system. Guess the 176 is the three-game rating.
What a show he put on Sat! We can only hope for anything remotely near that in the future, but the good side for us may be that we are better informed as to the reasons for game-to-game variance and they all won’t be projected onto Greyson’s back. He’s proven to me that he isn’t ego-bound about his play when he owned up about less than average performances. Hope this solidifies his self-confidence with this team.
Patience is needed when watching the Dawgs and Lambert, just as it has been in the past with Mason and Murray. Glad Lambert is working out, but we can’t rest on his laurels.
Thanks to yall in the stands who cheered enough for you and me and you certainly made a comment on this team and visiting recruits. DGDs, one and all.
“What’s the highest”…you can attain on the 246,5 rating system?”
I don’t think the college version has a cap. Ramsey’s was 479.2 on his 2 for 2 performance in the opener, for example.
I guess I should say that there isn’t a realistic cap. If you went 1 for 1 for 99 yards and a TD you’d hit whatever the maximum number is.
Part of the beauty of his performance is the pleasant and total surprise that it happened. Mason was efficient, and when Murray was on, he was lights-out. If either of them had a week with that sort of efficiency percentage, I would have been happy, but not really shocked. I am giddy about the possibilities ahead. Kudos to the Hoos for letting him ramble on down to Athens.
Leonard Fournette is incredibly relieved that Greyson threw the incompletion.
Greyson is relieved that Fournette took the 4th quarter off. How satisfying was it to see Trigga Tray’s horrible fundamentals make Auburn look even worse.
We all realize this kind of performance is nigh impossible to duplicate, but was the doubt erased to why he was selected to start and what he is capable of with this team in front of and behind him? It appears that linemen quotes about Greyson were right on the head, especially Theus.
Does anyone doubt the ability of our coaches’ decisions that have been correct right down the line?
Would the MM QBs please inform me about Greyson’s “tendencies” in this game? That is only a partial little snark and I would appreciate a serious answer. If it helps, pretend we nearly lost and that receivers dropped half their passes. Wrong-foot throws/ tells/ football grasp (glad no one checked that ball pressure) – dump it all on us. I know you watched closely, now come on and let us know more about poor technique and that we are ignoring our best QB in Ramsey. Consider it as cathartic on your behalf. I don’t want to start listing names of you Bertsperts, but some of us are going back to look. You too, Bluto.
Seriously, you haven’t seen any improvement in Lambert’s game as the season’s progressed?
As for technique, I know you don’t want to hear it, but he’s still staring down receivers.
He looked good and south carolina never had an answer for those slants.
the slant and go is going to just burn some DB to the ground in the next few games.
Yes he does. If I can see it, it’s no secret.
Man, you must have some hellatious binoculars to be able to see Lambert’s eyes in the helmet shadow and all. Do they have a tripod?
I can’t decide what’s more tiresome around here – the “realists” who can’t accept any positive news, or the Disney Dawgs who can’t accept any criticism.
And maybe you’re right… maybe Lambert is gifted with super vision and they’ve just been holding that back until Saturday. Or maybe he just locks on to receivers.
The real compliment here goes to Schottenheimer, who did a great job with his game planning. Throwing short passes negates the problem.
Although, maybe you’re right and Lambert will never miss another throw all season. I’ll bring my binoculars and let you know.
My, my…touchy are we? What I find tiresome is folks who maintain they can see things that may or may not be what is happening.
Unless you can see the quarterback’s eyes, all you can see is his helmet, which may or may not indicate where he is looking.
I have no idea about Lambert’s vision and have never said anything about it.
Nor have I said he would not miss another receiver all season…have no idea where that is coming from.
You had me at “I don’t know shit” the other day.
More bored than touchy.
Sorry if you find me tiresome. Maybe you can ask Richt why he thought Lambert didn’t check down on his incompletion, when all he could see on the play was the back of Lambert’s head.
Think that Lambert already fessed up and said he got greedy and went for the TD with Blazevich.
So what you’re saying is that the only time our coaches know a QB doesn’t check down is when he admits it?
Hell, maybe I could be a QB coach, then.
In this case, yes. Seems that Schotty is pretty sure about the info he gets on the sideline as to what Greyson says about formations. Yep. I’d say that I’d take Greyson’s word because Schotty sure does.
We know what CMR said and what he meant. it sure wasn’t a criticism when you put it together with Lambert’s quote.
Why in this case, but not in others?
That didn’t quite compute. Come again? (notice that I’m being polite by not typing “WTF?” ’cause I get that a lot 🙂 )
“In this case, yes.”
What didn’t compute? I assume that means in other cases, no.
I was speaking of Lambert’s admission concerning your first para question and was not speaking of you being a QB coach as you try to be. 🙂
It’s easy to know that the QB didn’t check down, when he throws to the primary receiver.
“Checking Down”, by definition, is when you move on to an outlet after NOT making the attempt to your primary.
QBs don’t make a habit of going through the full progression BEFORE deciding where to go with the ball. Generally, they eliminate and then throw. If you don’t have to eliminate the primary, you throw to him. If you can’t throw to him, you eliminate and move on.
Right. My guess (and I’m no coach) is that if a QB forces the pass to a primary receiver in tight coverage, and ignores a wide open easy ‘check-down’ receiver…the coach knows the QB didn’t go through the progressions as coached. That’s just my guess.
I’ll type it again : Greyson admitted that he got greedy on the play by going to Blaze who was already in the end zone. He admitted as much on the play, but that play shouldn’t color one’s thinking about the rest of his passes. We were originally talking about the extraordinary vision of the Senator and his inside knowlege about what Richt meant in his post game remarks. We are aware of the checkdown and the meaning, but I appreciate the extra education.
Makes for good discussion, but yall gotta keep up and ignore conflagratin’ buzzwords.
Obviously, I’m having a communication problem on this.
I realize if the primary guy is open you throw to him, Ben.
I also realize that – guess what? – Lambert’s not locking onto a receiver every play:
The quick throws that were there all night – really, the South Carolina defensive backs are going to be having unpleasant dreams about those slant passes for a while – were a great way to cut down on Lambert’s propensity for looking down his receivers. (Although, in his defense, he did a better job with checking off than he’s done before. It’s just that it’s still a work in progress.)
I’m not really sure what you guys are after here, unless it’s some kind of mea culpa that Lambert was great all along. Sorry if I can’t be more help with that.
You know what it’s about, Senator. It’s about unfairly hanging a guy for his history and who hasn’t yet come up to his capability w/o giving him a chance to be the guy and the leader of this team.
Nit-picking him as you have is your best example of tautology that we get every day.
Jeezus, could you possibly be more whiny?
I don’t have it in me to be the blind homer you want to read, man.
Let me be whiny for a while, too. Obviously Lambert had some ability before Saturday and I suspect that ability predated the start of this season. So…has he improved in the last 3 weeks? Yes. Was he pretty damn good all along? Yes. Part of the sudden emergence of Lambert against SC was Schotty’s admission that he was holding back the playbook in the first 2 games. Shifting memes–how bad must Mike London be as a coach if he (1) couldn’t win this this kid at QB, and (2) is so stupid that he benched Lambert. Remind me, how many games has UVa won so far this season? If William and Mary had been allowed to play both William AND Mary, UVa would be in even worse shape.
Again, when you said last week you did not know shit, you were significantly less tiresome, to me.
If you would just say “he appears to stare down his receivers” I would be less tired, but again, from your seat I would say it would be pretty hard to see the quarterback’s eyes, so you could be right, but you could be wrong. An acknowledgement of that once in awhile would be appreciated.
Now, what do you know about Southern’s kicking game?
When you’re looking at a formation with a receiver alone on one side of the field and Lambert faces that side after the snap and never turns his head or his body, either he’s got the greatest peripheral vision known to man – maybe X-Ray vision, too, since he’d have to see the other sideline through his helmet – or he locks down on his receiver. Occam’s Razor would seem to apply, but, as you appreciate, what do I know?
If your Occam reference includes that the fewer assumptions that are made, the better, then we are on the same page, at least.
Glad you got them to turn down the rap.
It doesn’t, but I doubt there’s anything I could say you’d find convincing, anyway.
“I doubt there’s anything I could say you’d find convincing, anyway.”
That’s simply not true. If you have gotten that impression from this…ah…discussion? then I apologize profusely. 🙂
I think what bothers me here is that it’s not enough for you guys that I enjoy Lambert’s performance for what it was.
About now and concerning Lambert, not much, Senator.
Your faith is touching, sir. Is it too early to embrace the Lambert for Heisman talk?
Hey! It didn’t originate from my lips, I just repeat it.
It does have sorta a nice ringy-dingy to it, doesn’t it?
Along with “Richt for QB-Rehabbing-for-Heisman Coach of the Year”. That would be a tongue twister for all those people wrong about Lambert at UGA.
I noticed the same as you on several of his passes, Sen. What I don’t remember, is if those particular instances were on quick slants, or plays taking longer to develop. The magnification of those HD cameras are amazing. . no need for superhuman sight abilities. . Seeing those certainly bothered me, and I’ve been a constant Lambert (coache’s decision) supporter, but that he hit 9 different receivers, makes me believe that he is improving.
Btw, anyone seen that coward “chilidawg”, aka Mr Ramsey? He constantly railed on Lambert, and I would love to hear his criticism of his record – breaking performance..
As someone was who was a vocal critic of Lambert, it made me downright giddy to be proven dead wrong as to what I thought GL’s ceiling was as a qb.
Honest question to you senator (& 3rd and Grantham feel free to jump in) is based on what you’ve seen over the last 3 games do you think greyson is good enough for us to compete for a championship?
I do. Then again, I came out of G-Day thinking any of Georgia’s QBs were at least good enough to be functional SEC players.
My .02. I believe, with what we saw against SCar, Lambert can manage good enough, in the short to medium range, for us to compete for a Championship…but I would rest easier if he could stretch the field a little more. A few more of those passes like he had to MM would be nice. I would like to see a few fly-patterns, post and seam passes completed.
Didn’t we have this qualifier for Mason last year until the Senator placed the stats under our nose when he finally made those “longer than 10yds” tosses when he was asked to?
This I think is an intriguing strategic consideration: does UGa unleash some deep stuff vs. Southern to test out Lambert and give the Elephants something to ponder? Or, is this ability kept under the hat so as to spring it on Bammer?
I’d think it more beneficial to get Lambert some true downfield gamespeed throws before the showdown 10/3.
“Whooo!” (my Black and Tan bugling), Scorp. By the lack of lost fumbles and other good happenings, I would say his grip ( 🙂 ) on the game hasn’t been lost, right?
Seeing Greyson Lambert’s poise and his run to a National Record, A Dawg record for pass completions and breaking Bobo’s consecutive record should be enough to warm the hearts of every Dawg fan.
Don’t be using Bluto’s words against him because Barristers have no memory.
Dayum Cojo…you have a “kumbaya muffin” for breakfast? 🙂
Yes he stares them down. It didn’t matter much in the SC game bc their corners couldn’t cover our receivers when their lb’s were down for a blitz. It opened up the slants. My favorite GL throw was the one where he anticipated Rome opening up near the sideline (around the 3 yd line I believe), but even then he is staring down as he buys Rome time to develop his route.
The scariest throw was one from the right hash to the left sideline on another route GL was waiting until it broke open. He had open guys underneath but instead bought time for 81 to open up behind the flats holding corner and safety crashing from over the top. A better, faster safety, should’ve shut that down. The throw was impressive but the athletes in the secondary were not stellar. Everyone could see where he wanted to go. It was could the ball get there fast enough, which it did. Davis made a great play to hang on to the ball.
“Yes he stares them down.” How do you know this? Really.
So your assertion is that there is no way to determine a qb is staring a receiver down unless you are a d back who can see their eyes, correct?
There is no such thing as “no way”, but the DB can see the QB’s eyes if he’s looking at the QB…in the case of Lambert, who has big eyes, this might be easier for the DB.
It is my contention that all you can see from the stands is the QB’s helmet direction which may, or may not indicate where the QB is actually looking.
Fair enough. To your point, it should be noted in Lambert’s scouting report:
PRO’s: height, arm strength
CON’s: decision making, big eyes
Really? Big eyes? Damn, I guess that means you can see them from the stands?
He had the luxury to “stare them down” (as you term it) on those plays. He did some anticipatory throws as well so having patience for receivers to get open don’t match the “starin’em down” scenario, Hahira.
Fellas, really? I think we are arguing over semantics.
I think GL had a GREAT game and the luxury to stare down some guys believing they would be open. On throw after throw he simply did not have to check to a second receiver. Is that “staring them down”? Well maybe and maybe not. However, as I stated, on both Rome’s to the right side line and Davis’ to the left, it is obvious where he is wanting to go and he has to wait to deliver as he anticipates the route coming free, which they did. My point is, while it worked great this day, and it certainly did, we are not as bad as many thought after Vandy or as great as we looked against Cackalacky.
The test will come when he does check to a secondary route, will it be successful 65%, or whether he continues to thrown the anticipation throws that, on occasion, has him holding his eyes while the play develops.
Kudos to GL for a great day and kudos to the O-line and all the receivers/backs/te’s who helped him look great and have the great day He had.
Rootin’ for our Lamberghini.
Looking at your receivers ain’t staring them down. We do have a semantics problem, not GL, as you gracefully state.
We never had a QB problem to begin with, just a history problem at another place. When GL has a history problem here, then I’ll join you. I think we should be fair, give Lambert all the love he deserves and quit nit-picking his history and try to make them fact here at UGA. Different place and circumstances; different QB. Let’s cheer for the one that ain’t throwing for Va any more.
We should be giddy that he has carved UGA’s name beside his for these records he has broken. I’m glad as an alum, to be joining in and claiming his victories and records for my school and the acumen of our coaches who have done an upstanding job with their rehab of talents they knew he possessed.
Looking at your receivers ain’t staring them down.
Since you use the word “receivers” in the plural, by definition it’s not locking down.
Deep analysis by tautology. Thanks for the insight.
My ology ain’t taut, thank you.
Tauntology, hell yeah. 🙂
What was the ratio of DD’s to realists at the tailgate? Were they in separate aisles?
Honestly, I thought everyone I met was refreshingly honest about Georgia’s prospects on the day. Not too hot or cold.
Think Bluto is partially correct there, Scorp. Of course, Greyson has that luxury with the protection he gets. While I expect that sort of thing may happen at a time when we need it badly, it doesn’t touch our admiration of Greyson’s accomplishment last Sat. Just shows to go you that the qualities that Richt and coaches saw and chose are right on. He already has proven that he can take it when the D pours through the line by his game at FSU last year. So I think we can put that rock back into our pocket.
I’ll bet that the jitteriness will leave that former Va QB since he now is a Dawg and he should and will be appreciated for all the Dawg things that he does even from the early doubters.
Thanks, Senator, but when did you begin to believe that I wouldn’t want to hear all your downer comments about our QB? So you are saying he doesn’t throw off the wrong foot or that his foot tells have been cured? How about that grip and the thingy off the tips of the fingers? Has that gone away so much that we don’t have to fear calamity and cringe every time he throws now? Are we down to only one correction he has to make for perfect style points? 🙂
Anyone else see the improvements Bluto says has happened in only two weeks? Looking for more info before we have to watch Greyson come in as the starter before the biggy game many are already dumping negatively about. Let’s have them now or forever hold your shit. Greyson needs some help from fans when his game ain’t perfection.
The questions I have are: 1) how many times, if any, did Lambert have to go to his second or third read? If the primary was open every time (save the incompletion), well we can’t expect that will continue. If he was going through progressions and hitting them like that, this could be a fun season. 2) how many times did Lambert change the plays at the line and, if he did, how did those pan out? If he’s able to diagnose and execute, once again, we could be in for a fun season.
My general thought is that we are probably not as bad as we were against Vandy and not as good as we looked against South Carolina. You do have to keep in mind that South Carolina has not seen an opposing punter in the first half this season.
Having watched Alabama play two games, other than depth on the DL and at ILB I’m not seeing a team that is head over heels better than us. We have better backs, a better top WR, better TE’s, better pass rushing OLB’s and I think we’re better at pass blocking. Bama would have the edge in run blocking.
If Lambert can keep the poise he had Saturday and we have the courage to keep throwing on first down, we could win going away. Winning first down is a huge key in that game and to do that you have to complete first down passes.
Right you are. His performance should be expected to be less than the almost perfect night he had and I hope all bloggers and other fans prepare to see that. Your upper on what to expect for the future and the take on Bama is right on.
We have everything to cheer for and we will wait for shit to happen before we propose that a player or coaches ain’t fit beforehand.
Hell I was ready to bury Lambert and the season after watching him in Nashville. I don’t know what changed. Maybe CMR has turned into the “QB Whisperer.” He went from Greg Talley to Phil Simms in a week.
My favorite throw was the one to Reggie on the sideline. Throwing over the corner and under the safety ain’t easy and he threw a strike in there under some duress.
One thing we know is that Bama will play man on Malcolm. Anybody think that their guy is better? I don’t. They need to target 26 over and over.
You obviously missed the second half in Nashville if you were ready to ditch him. Agree, don’t see many folks covering 26 with single coverage.
I watched it. It didn’t help. I was cringing as 11 took the field. I’ll try it again in two weeks.
They can’t afford to overlook our 5* receiver while attemping to cover Mitchell and if they decide to, there’s always the TEs (the hair just stood up on the back of my neck).
What a perfect game he had with his receivers and I was glad to hear Greyson say that his overthrow of Blaze was intentional so that SC couldn’t touch it either. If you saw the photo of Blaze’s effort you saw Blaze make it look like it wasn’t a huge miss as well. Good on him.
With Michel getting into the act and if Greyson’s on, it will be a bad night for Bama.
He played for the entire game like he did most of the second half of the Vandy game. i was skeptical of him being able to put together a full game of that. I’m happy to be wrong.
Somehow, Biggus, I didn’t read any skepticism into the fair and accurate comments you made before that game.
Can someone confirm that Lambert’s completion streak is still active? I know the % completed record got the news at the end of the day, but I seem to recall he also took Bobo’s record for consecutive completions at something like 20. So that’s still going into the Southern game, right?
Right, as far as total before missing, but the 20 total is for one game only. Also the number of passes thrown before an int is still on the boards as well as the total number consecutively w/o an int.
Yes, the streak is still active. He’d need to hit his first 16 against Southern to tie the record.
I’m corrected. Thought that record was predicated only on the one outing and in one game (therefore he broke the Bobo’s record).
Oh, he broke Bobo’s record. I’m talking the NCAA record for most consecutive completions period. Some East Carolina QB hit 36 in a row over two games in 2011. The second of those games is also the single game record for consecutive completions in I-A, 26 in a row.
Wow – the previous record was 26 by Aaron Rodgers. Not often you see a record obliterated like that in a >100 year old sport.
At first I was like, “36? That’s it?” And then I thought how rare it would be to even throw 36 consecutive passes without getting a ball tipped or having to throw one away, let alone throwing 36 accurately with no drops.
I am looking for video of the game or, more specifically, video of MM being open underneath on GL’s one incompletion.
Any help on this?
Watch ESPN sky cam replay. I always try and watch the sky cam replays. No announcers and some great angles. This replay definitely showed a wide open underneath pattern.
I’m in love… Is this available live?
I think Hahira is asking for replay. One on tonight on the SEC Channel right after CMRs remarks about the game( 8 or 9 oclock)..
Thanks for the reminders guys,
I watched a few of those sky cam games last year. I thoroughly enjoyed them. Unique perspective, cool way to re-watch the games
At the 11:50 mark. MM was wide open.
I wonder how much the Virginia coaches are scratching their heads right now? What a difference 4 months and an offensive line makes.
And a #s: 27, 1, 4, 26, 5, 81, 83, and oh – even 87 is getting back into the action. It really is an embarrassment of riches and an OC’s dream.
Look, I am glad we beat South Carolina like a rented…ah…pony? But it is just one game. I am praying we are still this excited at the end of October.
One good game does not a good hat make. 🙂
Oh, and wash no shirt before its time, there.
What were you wearing on your head this game?
Wore my “UGA” (top line)”University of Georgia” (bottom line) because I can. It has been a good hat.
Cojo you never, ever talk about a hat till the big ole gal sings the last note.
But I will share this: I have a hat, red hat with a G, that was chewed on one side of the bill by one of the finest dogs that ever chased a squirrel.
Now I am absolutely not saying I know everything about hats, or that I am even an expert on hats, but it would appear that a hat chewed by a damn good dog would be a good hat, right?
I’m not sayin that dog-chewed hat is 3-0 or anything. 🙂
My red hat with the black “G” is wool, therefore I wear it on cold days. Figure I’ll start wearing it during those cold NC games. 🙂
First…the hype on Fournette is nauseating. Let’s see him match some of Chubb’s accomplishments against tougher competition and we’ll review. (“Reminds me of Herschel…”? Vern, please. Bill Bates vs Trigga Trey falling to the ground is no comparison…but I digress.)
Lambert made huge improvement, but remember Rick Neuheisel was saying before the game that the talent was there just from watching practice. He is certainly the product of all of the pieces working together…coaching, scheme, RB’s, OL, TE’s and even WR talent. He’s better than Mason, so he should be enough to lead this team through the schedule.
But the season still comes down to our D people!!! We’ll score 30+ points per game if GL will keep the ball protected. No bad interceptions, no throwing deep into triple coverage “just because we should”, no throwing wildly while taking a sack (that only works once per year and Ole Miss got their first). If we are going to beat Bama, UT, Mizzou and FL (and KY!) we need a junkyard dawg defense that holds the other guys to under 24 ppg. We don’t want to be in any shoot-outs because GL is not Aaron Murray.
Do this and we’ll be in Atlanta…against LSU. Epic in so many ways.
So, correct me if I am wrong, Aus, what you are saying is see me at then end of October?
OK, maybe not at that insightful but astonished we’re not talking about it more…score with offense, but WIN with defense. That’s what’s been missing for too many years now. We’ll know by the end of October if we are healthy and have a D to be a championship caliber team.
P.S. Neuheisel today on SirusXM was talking about a legitimate case for UGA to be considered the best team in CFB right now. I’m sure Fbomb will agree…
I’m bullish on the ability of this team, but beating Louisiana-Monroe, Vandy and South Carolina is not enough to make me THAT bullish.They could easily lose either or both of the Alabama and Tennessee games. I guess since I always underestimate Missouri, I have to at least consider them a threat despite how awful their offense looks right now. Florida is Florida, but I still can’t see this team losing to them. Losing two in a row to Tech would surprise me, but I guess that’s possible too.
Seeing all the working parts of Bobo’s Machine working beautifully with a couple of shiny new cogs makes me bullish on Schotty’s Offense.
Seeing how Pruitt game-planned as well (Pharoh Cooper covered like a condom all night, D-line doing their trick and freeing up LBs to scurry around the backfield instead of rushing the line) shows me that he can plan around our soft spots from other games and he can turn’em loose when he wants to. I’ve been gun shy since the FU game last year, but his game planning is tailored so well that it’s beginning to fade as a worry.
Now, if we can just get STs into the groove, worries could go by the wayside, but not yet.
Overall, I’m bullish because of the depth that we have as snake bite protection that we haven’t had for several years. It sounds cold, (hope our players stay healthy), but if we get an injury to a big player(s), I hope we don’t twist our hands in grief and instead be confident of the player(s) taking their place. remember, we start seeing injuries when we are well into the season.
Biggus, I am really afraid now…I agree with you. FWIW, I still get goosebumps when I think about how well Lambert played, but I have been a Georgia fan way too long to count any chickens (:)) befo they time.
There’s a lot of miracles between here and Jerusalem, boys.
Don’t worry. I’m sure they’ll botch a game I think they shouldn’t and I’ll want everybody fired again soon enough.
I gotta ask Aus, does Neuheisel saying that not make you itch ?, just a bit…very small sample size of questionable quality and all that?
Short answer…yes. I don’t listen to him that much, and he likes to knock the whole “SEC is best” meme down while pumping-up the Pac12. But he did visit Athens, talked with Richt, knows what he’s watching during games and has a pretty good take on the game. So…if he wants to pump some sunshine our way, I’m holding buckets!
He’s been right about Lambert starting, that he could be special (not sure if the “Lambert for Heisman” quote was verified) so he does show some prescience on the subject. If he gets this correct (best in CFB), we should honor him with a Disney Dawg award.
Five will get you ten ( 🙂 ) that Neuheisel may be correct. He is in my book.
Well done Greyson, and the rest of the offense!
I think Fourette had a hell of a good day against a SEC foe. But come on man….sharing SEC offensive player of the week when Greyson Lambert set a NEW NCAA record for completion percentage with 20+ attempts against a SEC foe. Come on man……..I know I’m splitting hairs here to some, but I think Greyson should get NCAA offensive player of the week. I know I hear and read about his mechanics and staring down receivers, but he just set a new NCAA record……….that shit doesn’t happen every week.
You got the floor, Doug. Clap, clap, clap,clap,clap,clap,clap!
Agree that he should be honored in that manner.
I was super impressed with Schotty’s playcalling. Playmakers like Rome, Hicks, MM, Godwin, Marshall (of course Chubb & Michel) all getting in on the action. Avoided keeping the ball in Lambert’s hands too long. Used Chubb as a decoy, too. Positive yards on soo many plays. Can’t overstate how well we distributed the ball. It was fricken masterful!
scu’s heads are still spinning. sos had to be wondering ‘who the hell is gonna come off their bench and make a play next?’
