Eh, what does he know?

Mark Stoops wants you to know he’s got Georgia sussed this week.

Imagine the surprise he’s in for when Georgia pulls off Nick Robinson’s redshirt.

**************************************************************************

UPDATE:

As I said on Monday, it’s Ramsey Time.  He’s this week’s third-stringer, after all.

I wonder if he can start at quarterback and still punt.

    I hope playing quarterback, if that happens, does not interfere with Ramsey’s punting… I really like those “long, high, driving spirals” there.

      Hell based on Schotty ‘s body of work brice is certainly qualified to be an offensive coordinator and qb coach. While we’re switching things up can we add play calling to Brice ‘s responsibilities?

    I guess Ramsey. Got nothing to lose. The other two couldn’t do it, so why not? Maybe he’ll settle in if he knows he’s got a whole game to show out instead of a series at a time.

    At this point in the season I vote for Ramsey. We have seen what the other guys are capable of, so why not? In the end though, without better blocking up front, WR’s with the ability to get open and a solid gameplan will it really matter who is back there throwing incompletions and INT’s?

    I would love for Ramsey to be both the punter and the QB in the same game.

    Also I would love for Ramsey to do nothing but run the triple option this week. Why not.

    Just getting an offensive touchdown would be a success this week.

    ALSO WTF WHY ARE THEY STILL SPLITTING REPS IN PRACTICE. I feel like I am at the u-scan behind some old person trying to figure out how to scan bananas. Stop just blindly pushing buttons and call the attendant. Or die. either way.

      But splitting reps all practice long and not deciding on a QB until a day or so before the game, and then not burning the midnight oil to craft a game plan to really take advantage of that QB’s skill set is what led us to 3 points against the mighty gators!

    How did it get to the point in Georgia football where the fans are only interested in two things. Who the QB will be? Who will be the first Dawg to score a TD? Okay, make that 3. Who will be the punter.

                • Think it was soph Jeff Pyburn, son of Jim Pyburn, Parade All American out of Cedar Shoals. He struggled early, was frequently replaced, started having a decent game v. UF and then an injury ended his season. Word during those years was there was dissension among players and coaches–certainly among fans–resulting from Jeff’s struggles and the emergence of fan fave frosh Buck Belue in ’78. Things quieted down a bit in the ’78 “Wonder Dawg” season, but Buck came off the bench to save the ’78 Tech game and we had full blown controversy going into ’79. I certainly remember fans in the stands calling for Buck in ’79 beginning with the opening loss to (gulp!) Wake Forest. Little did we know that the team was establishing a firm nucleus for a bright future. Maybe something to chew on!

Richt would still look less like a clown than he did in JAX.

    Random thoughts:

    Is it possible we all just had our hopes set a little two high for a young team and coaching staff that had more turnover than almost any other team in the SEC over the last two years? I mean, why did we expect to win the East? Were we out of our minds? We all should’ve known this year was gonna suck. How did we buy into the hype that we had a shot at the SEC Championship? Simply because we thought we were better than Florida, Tennessee and Mizzou? The lesson we’ve really learned is that Chubb is a LOT better than we even knew. He made chicken salad out of chicken crap with the O-line that was blocking for him……
