    Its fitting they talk about the dog experiment… Its thrilling the WSJ has discovered something new.

    Nobody ever had that thought before.

    Looked an interesting article but it was subscriber only. I got the gist though.

  4. I stopped reading about the time he mentioned the 60’s dominant dog study…something or rather.

    Anyone else feel lost without a game day comment post? Who is calling this blog? Chaney?? Is that you?

    Fine. I’ll convo with myself. I might actually be pissed if putting Chaney in the booth solves our offensive woes. If you can see the field better from the box with a box of Domino’s and lumbar support, that’s where you should have been all year.

    Watch out! We’re challenging the potential co-leader of the SEC East, baby!!

    I’d like to call steroid use, on the official, center judge.

    I’Mac is trying to do too much. As much as I appreciate his great catch and touchdown run..his running backwards after the first down and now his failure to fair catch the punt has undone the good….He’s a great talent but he needs to play a little bit smarter.

    KY just went ahead. I’ve gotta wonder if this is where Georgia grows up or folds up.

    Chaney, pass the damn ball. One occasional pass won’t make them respect the pass. WTF is this gameplan????

      Gotta throw it on fist down sometimes. I think the plan must be to wear KYs thin D front down for the late advantage. But we need to throw it more….although Chubb and Sony have both been very close to breaking the long one.

        It works for 3 or 4 runs and then we end up going backwards. Chubb needs to take what he’s got and stop trying to be Isaiah. We can’t sustain an 80 yard drive right now. We’ll need a 30+ yd score to get on the board again.

    Our super-secret gadget play we are saving for the fourth quarter:

    A play action pass on first down.

    I’m off the train. Struggling is expected. This dumpster fire is unacceptable. He’ll be gone in 3 years. No recruits can fix this. 👎

      I don’t really mean that. I just needed to say it. Apparently, everyone is posting on another post so maybe no one will notice.

    The good news…we found a kicker.

    The bad news..he seems to be doing all the scoring.

    Subscriber only, but I do read comments in other places stating the SEC is a conference on 1 great team and a bunch of decent teams. I ahve 2 comments about that, Bama is dominating playoffs and their neutral site Power 5 season openers. The SEC has done very well in the bowl season. Bama is possibly more dominant than 80s Miami, 90s FSU or Nebraska. We would have to go back decades to see a team as nationally dominant over a nearly decade long span.
