Your weekly non-Dawg game day post, 10/8 edition

Some pretty big games today, including an elimination game in Gainesville, Florid… oh, wait.

Let’s start over.



12:00 PM

Other than Charlie Strong’s career, it’s hard to remember a Red River Shootout with less at stake.


Mississippi State

12:00 PM

The Gus Bus rolls into Starkville.  Will it roll out under its own power?

#25Virginia Tech

#17North Carolina

3:30 PM

If the Hokies can hang on to the ball, this has the potential to be a compelling game.


#8Texas A&M

3:30 PM

The biggest game in Texas today.



7:00 PM

Bert tries to climb Mt. Saban again.

#23Florida State


8:00 PM

Does Miami get exposed as having played a weak schedule, or are the Canes for real?

    Go Aggies and MSU Dawgs! You know.. the enemy of my enemy thing..

    Look at Miami sitting there at #10.
    That could’ve been us. (Sigh)

    • Macallanlover

      Agitator! You should not taunt those who have such serious security issues.

      Looks like Gus has not just invited, but pushed Mullen into his, previously, hot seat. I am not feeling good about the AU game….at all. Ugh. Another I was not worried about until Sept. 10. Blowout in Cowbell country.

      Greatest coach to ever stand on the sidelines with his arms crossed looking like a statue in Coral Gables .

      MacCallan – that was a joke.

      “That could’ve been us. (Sigh)”

      As I recall the last time we played at scu we had 1st and goal at the 4 yard line late in the 4th quarter. AND had an RB named Todd Gurley (we also had Chubb & Michel). That’s about as close to a sure thing win as you’re going to get against sos (Sigh).

      • Macallanlover

        Always been one of the weakest hindsight arguments pf all those brought up regularly, but no way to prove anything by arguing. Play call was legit, just a very, very strange result so of course we all wish we had done something different. But the call was safe, and a nice variation on what everyone expected. Could not have turned out that badly if we tried it another 100 times (and the grounding was a bad call because it was technically tipped so it didn’t fir the criteria for grounding…even though Mason was indeep dumping it.)

      • AthensHomerDawg

        There was that Tech game when we were on the goal line and couldn’t shove it in and Spaghetti arm passed us into a TD. Damn…kinda let’s the air outta of run the damn ball.

    • sniffer

      I’ve always heard its all about the coach.

    I have been made aware that this is a Georgia blog, but I just wonder…is it ok to pull for Miami against FSU? I mean will somebody come a-knockin on my door wanting my diploma back or something?

    Since the South Carolina athletic brain trust hath wrought I got no game today, is it ok to be a Canes fan tonight? If I promise not to holler into a mike on a bus? 😀

    If I promise not to let hollering for the Canes tonight dilute my Dawginess tomorrow? Can I, huh?

    • MDDawg

      I was gonna cheer for the ‘Canes regardless of where/when the Georgia game was played, so I see no reason why you can’t.

    • Jared S.

      The Miami game is the only one I’m planning on watching in its entirety today. And I’m definitely pulling for them against FL State.

      Although, Jimbo’s team has looked so weak, I don’t think a Miami win tonight will prove Miami is for real. A loss will prove they are over-rated but a win might just be further proof that the Noles flat out stink this year.

      If Miami wins tonight AND beats UNC next week then we’ll know.

      • PTC DAWG

        Free Shoes is 7-5 in their last 12 games..

      • Richt has been forged from the fires of the SEC. He has learned much and will do well. Kirby will have to go through the same first time coach experience– I hope faster and with a few new wrinkles learned from Saban. They both need to thank Butts Mehre for its confidence in giving the keys to a big time program to a first time head coach.

        Lets hope Butts Mehre lucks out and found someone better for its program than Richt.

    and they don’t recover for next week either.

  5. Russ


    Oh wait…..sorry about that. 🙂

    I have to watch UT (the real one) vs OU for my Longhorn wife. Want to see the Aggies whip the fake UT. And the Miami game will be interesting. Bama gonna Bama.


    I was thinking this was a Miami blog…

    And yeah, UF made a calculated move, the SEC should fix it.

  7. Bob

    Miss State sucks. That said, Auburn looks pretty damn good. Not good news.

  8. Macallanlover

    Aggies look real, should win by double digits today. I think Arkansas and Bama should be a good game to watch by being competitive. Bert may be an easy target to shoot at but he puts a pretty consistent product on the field. Miami has looked better than FSU except for the 2nd half of the Old Miss game but this is an old rivalry and both teams should be motivated.

  9. Hardcordawg 93

    Man, this NS St game looks messy. Glad we are not playing today.

    Got Pitt!
    Always disliked Miami and the Noles so I’m rooting for the higher ranked team to lose.

  10. lakedawg

    Some Gamecock acquaintances think they actually have a chance tomorrow.

    • Macallanlover

      There is very little in our film to cause them to feel otherwise. We may be better, think we are, but it isn’t by a wide-enough margin for us to feel there are any locks. Anyone remember a blowout by us this season? Gonna have to grind to win a low scoring game and move on to next week…which also looks to be competitive, unfortunately. We showed some signs of offensive light last week, let’s hope we can grow from that.

  11. Uglydawg

    Jalon Hurd was injured against UGA last week and isn’t travelling with the rest of the Hillbillys. I thought the Dawgs got some pretty awesome and clean hits on him. Sorry about him being hurt but hoping the Aggies crush the Vols and Bootch gets a lot of questionable penalties called on his team.

  12. OrlandoDawg

    Current laughable ESPN crawl: “LSU-UF postponed. SEC will attempt to re-schedule.”

    Behind the scenes on a 3-way call:
    Sankey: “Guys, how do we get this game in?”
    Foley: “Ain’t happening.”
    Aleva: “I’m not taking any questions.”
    Sankey: “Oh.”

    Future ESPN crawl: “The SEC office regrets that it will be impossible to reschedule the UF-LSU football game.

  13. Raleighwood Dawg

    Booch’s head is about to explode!🙂🙂🙂
    aTm leads 21-7 in 2nd quarter

  14. How about that awesome Tom Herman everybody has been so enamored with? His #6 ranked team just lost to a military academy.

    • AthensHomerDawg

      Exactly…and just how long has Herman been a head coach?

      “We could had a V-8”?

      • So your point is to cut the guy some slack because he has not been a head coach for that long? Got it.

        • AthensHomerDawg

          No not at all. My point perhaps not sharp enough for is everyone was worked up to hire a coach with experience instead of Smart. Someone like Herman…who had exactly one season of HC experience.
          Kinda silly the value of a,single year of HC experience. Just my thoughts. But hey, CMR won the SEC after the drought with just a year of experience so go figure. What will be funny is if Richt wins the ACC in his first year. Now thaz rich.

  15. Uglydawg

    We can say what we want about the Vols being lucky, but this has been a hell of a football game.

  16. Uglydawg

    2nd overtime…come-on out rabbit’s foot…work your way out sideways..let those toenails dig in……make it really painful….

  17. The rabbit’s foot almost reigned again.

  18. North State Dawg

    Nice to see Richt calling offensive plays again.

  19. Debby Balcer

    GIG Em Aggies.

  20. North State Dawg

    ACC has a better replay review set-up, judging from Miami’s TD pass just now.

  21. Russ

    So, FSU blocks the PAT to win the game, and half the team runs onto the field without their helmets, and no flags (other than off-setting). Yet we have a guy run to the back of the endzone during our game and those arbiters of the game make sure to flag him.

    • TXBaller

      Not a Mark Richt special teams snafu….say it ain’t so!

      Noles not quite Famu, GT, ApSt or FlaIntl…

      • Ramguy

        Yeah I was think along that same line. Richt loses on a special teams play. Where are all the do you miss me yet Richt memes is have been seeing the last few weeks? Some people need to trade in the Dawgs for cap with one from the U.

    • Russ, it’s the SEC … what else would you expect? I’m sick of SEC officiating. They are used to change the outcome of games. It’s the main reason I no longer have any conference loyalty unless a game has a positive impact on UGA.

  22. Scorpio Jones, III

    Boy, the Bitchez were heavily engaged yesterday. Maybe they will take Sunday off?
