As I get ready to leave for Athens, a thought occurs to me: it’s been a while since Sanford Stadium was legitimately rocking.
It’s feel good time, Dawgs. In fact, it’s way past time for that.
Consider this your game day thread post.
Filed under Georgia Football
Shock the World Dawgs! Make the Senator proud!
30 years ago today. We were under dogs then too I believe. Little Mikey . Kid out of Warner Robins Ga. Took his sister to HS home coming. One of my friends who played corner took my future bride.
I was there (it was my junior year), and though I stayed on the stands, I still got soaking wet.
I remember thinking that our fans that ran on the field deserved security intervention. Then they turned the hoses on the band and Georgia fans celebrating in the it seats.
I love this rivalry, and hate that school, team, coaches, and fans.
I dislike UF, Tech, Clemson, UT, Notre Dame, OSU, Michigan immensely. There’s only one program I absolutely have white hot hate for: today’s opponent. They are an irredeemable disgrace.
Nice. I like the degree of hate.
And yet his hate is…insufficient. It feels meager…uninspired.
I think I actually found myself in the video at midfield. Never realized that. It was a long wet ride home, but we didnt care. Great game then and a great one last night. Awesome to be their for both. The other comparable one was the blackout game.
In 88, I was in the redcoats that dropped our shakers at the end of halftime after we spelled Georgia. We got into a lot of trouble, administrators were running hot for a long time. It was worth it.
I lived in Colorado at the time and missed this. But I think it is one of the all-time great pranks – funny, memorable, positive, and not destructive.
Disappointing that people would be upset by it.
My favorite Red Coat prank was at the 1981 Sugar Bowl (80 season) against Notre Dame. The two bands joined at pregame to spell “USA” and play the national anthem. The Red Coat half adjusted the “S” into a “G” and did a quick “Glory, glory” salute with the ND band inadvertently helping spell UGA across the Superdome field. Classic.
I am heading there myself in a few minutes (I’m already late) – pregame beer… check, during game bourbon…. check, post game lose my voice… check (getting old sucks).
I am not expecting a win, but if we don’t it will not be because I didn’t do my part.
I hate Auburn with the heat of a thousand suns.
In the words of Carnac the Magnificent…. may the fleas of a thousand camels infest their armpits.
BJ I am rolling! Very good stuff indeed sir…
Deserving ain’t got nothing yo do with it….
Go, you Silver Britches!!! Give Uncle Verne a classic Georgia win on his last day in the booth at Sanford!
Thought Sanford was rocking plenty vs the Vols, but maybe I don’t understand “legitimately.”
On the road today and will be forced to listen to Scott Howard as he gets excited over nothing and totally dejected when the other team makes a play. Kinda like listening to a kid call the game.
Agree. Just never have been able to get used to Scott Howard.
So listen to the Auburn broadcast.
No visor? What gives?
God how many times have we had a huge play brought back because our o line, Catlina in particular, has tackled someone. Eason has to be frustrated with that and the hands of our wideouts. Wimms is special
What a Bullshit holding call and non-call on the hit out of bounds on Michel. We got screwed on the coin toss to start. So it begins….
The SEC doesn’t hide it when they want to protect their sacred cows.
SEC refs never call holding on the OL. The fix is in.
Another crap play with McKenzie in the backfield for a loss.
After running our bread-and-butter backs Chubb and Michel for two consecutive first downs.
Chaney, it’s official. You’re an idiot.
But I’ve never been in the arena, of course. So what the hell do I know.
Just a few minutes in and it’s already a given the officiating is sucking more than normal today.
WHAT THE F*CK, GODWIN ???
Not necessary. Another stupid, untimely call from the Krisoy Kreme booth.
Stupid decision to pass, but Chigbu got cross-checked at the 5 while the ball was in the air while the refs had their thumb up their ass.
Let’s get cute since nothing else is working, Chaney
Criminal misappropriation of Chubb and Michel, not to run it down their throats in the red zone.
All interceptions are bad. That one sunk to the level of pathetic. Offense was moving twice before self inflicted stupidity stopped it both times. I have the sinking feeling we may not regain any momentum the rest of the day.
AU should run a half back pass here.
I’ve seen enough to know our D will be gasping by the third quarter with our hurry up and shit your pants offense Chaney runs.
Yea, they aren’t gonna call holding on auburn’s OT’s. We definitely have to beat 2 teams today
This coaching staff has no idea what they’re doing.
I was wrong. They clearly get it on defense. What a performance. Lemme eat that crow.
Nothing like we’re going to run these plays over and over again and you can’t stop it. Great time out game plan as well.
How can we kill Eason’s confidence on this drive?
I don’t have a problem running the Godwin play when you’re at midfield but not in the redzone! The freaking D has nothing to worry about with their backs to the endzone. Let Lambert call plays. Damn!
I’d send Chaney packing right now but they won’t let me run things
Way to kill the momentum that we may never get back, Chaney! Started on our 8 and run and pass down their throats just to do something totally unnecessary. Absolutely NO reason to run that pay right there. OMG! someone just cut me off from commenting please!
What the f*ck! He raped him!
They took his wallet! Fix!
Omg! screw these officials. Screw the SEC
If Kirby doesn’t punch a ref in the face right now I don’t want him to ever coach us again.
These refs fucking blow!!!!!
The SEC is an absolute fucking joke. This sport has become pro wrestling.
yeah, pretty clear the refs are not going to let us win this one.
This does look like Hillary is the QB
I’m sorry. I don’t know why but Michel needs to be on the field. Chubb isn’t getting it done.
Oh, B f’n s! The damn fix is in. I am so tired of seeing this team beat the snot out of themselves and we don’t need the most overpaid refs in college football piling on.
I repeat. The fix is in. Flagrant tackling of a receiver. No flag.
I love Verne, but he’s seeing the field better than the refs.
Missed late hit PF on Sony on the first drive. BS holding call on Wims catch. Completely blown PI against Ridley. This is a travesty.
Do we even have a sixth linemen?
WE can’t catch a break ! Did anyone else see Godwin smiling after he threw INT ? Also, Cheney is a JOKE ! Officials are making it worse ! I BLAME COACH DUMB….
Our OL would have to improve in order to suck. Good grief. There’s bad blocking and there’s being made someone’s bitch.
Just to try and be optimistic, our DL is gonna be a beast the next couple of years.
We have 1 SR on D. If this staff is any good this D should be really really good down the road
I’m still watching ! Yes OL is pretty bad. I feel like everyone knows when we are gonna run and when we are gonna pass. We need to disguise it better. 7-0 at half ! I’m telling y’all that wasted play with Godwins INT. May come back to haunt us. COACH CHENEY HAS TO GO.
Screw Trigga and Auburn.
Something creepy about Malzahn too.
We are 3 lineman, a good wide out and a year or so away from being a really good team. I’m impressed with Eason, Ridley, wimms, our dl and our lbs. We aren’t as far away as it might look. The line is the most glaring issue. Hopefully we don’t get Eason killed or make him so she’ll shocked that he won’t trust a line that does its job, IF we ever give him one.
This! Totally agree with being a few players away.
Also I don’t know enough about offensive play-calling but maybe Chaney is really Limited. To me it looks like it goes away from all that works too quick and tries to get way too cute. I’m hoping heater gets it figured out or gets going
This is what my Arkansas family kept telling me when we got him from them. I think it was telling when Bilimea(sp? Lol) made such a big stink about losing Pittman but didn’t really bat an eye about Chaney.
If we don’t get him an OL he’ll prob transfer ! Hell I would
I’m telling you! This D…its gonna be good. Well…it’s good now but should be elite
Really? Can’t even get the punt inside the 30?? So much for field position.
Eason-to-Ridley and Eason-to-Nauta are both working well today!
Rec Specs to the rescue … money!
Give that boy his scholarship NOW.
Dawgs on top!

If Kirby doesn’t fire Beamer we’re just gonna have to pool our money and have Tony Soprano whack him.
Catalina may not be the best but I’ll never question his toughness! Dude had gutted this game out
Glad somebody noticed something good here. Amazing.
Damn … Nauta is a beast!
I’ve got a lot of confidence in Tucker, Rocker, Sherrer, Shuman & Kirby. Can’t say the same for the rest of the staff.
But congrats on a big win!!!!
Personally, I’d rather fire you.
Ha ha,way to go Dawgs!! We did hunker!!
O Awbun first downs in the second half…0, baby….
164 yards….and, you may have noticed, the defense scored the only touchdown. Saban’s defense my ass.
A thing of beauty. Vince smiles, and Erk beams his approval from on high.
And the ghost of Bill Hartman stalks the sidelines..
The ghost of Bill Stanfill stalked the fucking FIELD.
That should be the headline! 👍
I’m not one to pat myself on the back but I called it. Lol. I said the D would be salty. Great team win against a good team! Not pretty but it was beautiful! Great win, Dawgs!
I was a little happier with Cheney but not sure what he’s doing in the red zone. Would have been incredible had Eason caught that, though
Our blocking is still iffy. But sonwhat, it’s a glorious night.
What a fucking beautiful win! AHAHAHAHA AUBURN SUCKSSSS
The last time we kept an opponent to zero first downs in the second half was, maybe:
Alabama in 76?
No shit man. If you can’t enjoy this more moment you need a chill pill.
I really am sick of Fat Fredo and his love of low % trick plays. Really? A throw to Eason?
Please adjust your attitude.
Really? Right now? Damn, brother. I feel bad for you.
I’m happy with the win but we scored 2 FGs. And two of the best RBs in the country had to go to him and ask for the ball.
Ah…but if the refs call PI we probably get another…if we don’t run trick plays we get another (out of two tries), we played very conservative down close because Auburn couldn’t move the ball …and we ended the game close enough to score again.
That was my original point. The two trick plays made it closer than it should have been. And the SEC refs are a joke. They obviously heard from Birmingham that they wanted big ratings for the Iron Bowl.
Gentlemen, we just stole one. Ahh, how satisfying.
I hope that Trigga Tray is having fun tonight.
I’m surprised he didn’t knock that interception up in the air so Chigbu had time to get up and get to it.
Sweet to kill any chance Awbarn had of going to Atlanta. The defense played great. TT is turning into a monster. I personally think that we should put out a warrant for Garner since he was obviously stealing money from Georgia for years though.
No way we win this game. Senator was nuts. Ranked team and we are just rank. Offense only scored 6 points and shot itself in the foot so many times we have club feet. Aubarn ran all over us for their TD. We looked small and weak all over the field. And the SEC should be absolutely ashamed of these refs.
But then that D! The young stud in the middle! The blitzes! The kid we “stole” from Nicky…ha! It was a setup all along to be sure his agent beat the aubies. Brilliant!
I still don’t see a damn bit of difference in the new regime from the old, but there are finally some glimmers of hope the #process will bring us back…to 10 win seasons. 🤓 <— Rodrigo
Thompson is a stud. He’s going to be playing on Sundays and Mo Smith is a badass too.
I said during the week that Eason turned the corner in the second half against Kentucky…He was excellent today! We’ve got us a hell of a gunslinger!
Excellent game management and maturity. John Lastinger with a good arm.
Proud of the boys tonight.
One quick question:
Why do we trust Terry Godwin throwing in the red zone but not Skinny?
Let me try to explain.
I got nothing.
🤓 <— Rodrigo
Same reason/source that sent Mckenzie out to make a critical Ist down on 4th and one and have Chubb block for him.
Agree completely with the comments about Eason stepping up. He is beyond special. Takes a licking and comes back tougher. And why we didn’t let him throw more in the red zone is beyond me. This team with an improved offensive line could easily be 8-2 right now. Worries me because that will be hard to fix by next year. I hope tonight was a sign rather than an aberration.
Curiously, how we handle LL may say more about this team than the UF or AU games. Is there anyone we can impose our offensive will on? We shall see.
What a defensive performance in the 2ed half. No 1st downs and by my crude calculations Auburn only had a little more than 6 minutes of offensive possession, Pitiful performance by the refs. They botched the coin toss to start off with. Gary Daniels made the excuse that the ref couldn’t see the pass interference. The fans in the stands behind him certainly seen it. And how about the the non call on that punt. An Auburn player stepped off the sideline onto the field and lined up as a gunner. How is that not a penalty? Luckily they were flagged to interference on the other end of the play.
“Godwin played quarterback in high school, which Smart knew from having recruited him. And Godwin threw a touchdown pass in Georgia’s bowl win last season. He hadn’t attempted a pass in the first nine games this year, but in practice he had thrown two touchdown passes on that play against Georgia’s defense.
“So I told coach Chaney: I want it,” Smart said. “He agreed. We went with it. Terry just made a bad decision there.”
“This time Georgia at least was able to retain possession and get a field goal. But Smart had no regrets about the second Godwin pass call, having apparently seen it work seven out of seven times this year in college football.
“I thought it was an aggressive call. We were going to win the game,” Smart said. “You want to run the ball on third-and-4 at the goal? No, we want to find a way to get it in. We thought the kid, 6-foot-6, was going to get it. And their guy made a good play.”
You darn right you run the ball two straight times at that point nd if they stop you they got 99 yards to go and have not been doing crap against our D.
Mu words verbatim when that happened. Dang, Cheney go for the win. Worst that can happy is have the drive it for 99 yards. Good luck.
Even better a FG alone doesn’t tie the game…take the points.
So stop with the “Fat guy” did it.
“We’ve got some grown men up front that don’t let you run it,” Smart said. “We force you to throw it, and then we stop you throwing it.” -- The Athletic, 1/13/22
