So much for my optimism.
Offseason just got a lot longer for this staff.
Filed under Georgia Football
This was as Richtian a loss as possible. You can’t fire the man and still let this kind of garbage happen.
We need to get accustomed to 1.5x-2x as many ‘richtian’ losses per year now. Because they weren’t richtian, they were just losses. Now our coaching staff isn’t so hot, so we get more of them.
I couldn’t have put it better.
Only, Richt dominated Tech like no other UGA HC. I would say this is the most Smartian way to lose a game. We easily could have been 1-11 this season.
well, 10 wins a year WAS SO BORING
Yeah, but those 10 wins were against weaker opponents like Vanderbilt and marginal Georgia Tech teams and then embarrassing nail-biters against lower tier schools.
It was very important to regress from that wasn’t it?
we lost to vandy, ut, and fla. dipshit
He was being sarcastic.
Those 10 wins were against the same schedule we played this year. We lost to Vanderbilt this year you moron
Apologies if I didn’t sense your sarcasm.
They say the best sarcasm is mistaken for straight-faced.
I take it as a compliment that I’m refining my skills 😉
He won the east 5 times. How many you think Kirby Dumb will win
Richt didn’t win it in his 1st year.
Didn’t play poorly, we were just out-coached by a superior mind.
And the superior mind was, o my god no!
Dat’s funny right there, that pass to that huge 5.9 forty time tackle was a true stroke of genius. They got lucky on the INT, that’s it in a nut shell.
Got lucky did they All 22 of our players are better than theirs. Try again
Pitt scored along touchdown this year on Tech using that same play .
Kirby mis-read the memo. He thought it said Richt got fired because he didn’t lose to Tech enough
We quit running the ball in the red zone…I know I’m a broken record on this, but this game was lost on our first drive…Kirby’s Cental Fl. loss…
immediately before the INT we called a motion run that clearly confused our true freshman TE. solid coaching, that.
Fire Greg McGarity!
There is something we can all agree on. Should have done that years ago, the guy is an absolutely Empty Suit. Has accomplished nothing and bungled much. Would rather follow Vandy’s lead and abolish the position if we get nothing for the salary and office space.
At the start of the season, I thought 8-4 was the floor for this team. I was wrong. My season summary is that this coaching staff and team excels at snatching deaf eat from the jaws of victory.
defeat– dang you autocorrect!
It’s time to cool it with all that “genius” snark. We can’t talk down to anyone at this point.
Wonder what McGarity is going to think about on his drive home this year….retirement?
So what does the AD have to do with this loss?
He hired the coach…….DUH!!!
No. He’s thinking that the plan is working. Look, I hate losing to Tech; there a numbness in my soul that has been very unfamiliar the last decade or so. But McGarity has to be pleased with the body of work. If we look at W/L and points for/points against, we’re missing the point (ptp). It’s about the substance that has been created under the surface. With the change in ethic, focus, determination; with the winning mentality that CKS has been instilling – AND with a top 5 recruiting class coming in, McGarity probably feels a bit smug and self-satisfied. Not everyone can pull this off.
Do you mean FU Agent McGarity–that guy FU sent north to destroy Georgia’s sports program?
What makes you think we’re ahead of Florida at this point? We follow Smart and McGarity and we will follow them into oblivion.
It’s all part of the super-secret shrewd plan.
We let McElwain win a weakened East Division for 4 to 5 years to lull them into a false sense of security while we secretly stockpile “Top 5 recruiting classes”.
Then, 5 to 6 years from now we beat them one time and finish second behind Tennessee after blowing a game to Rocky Top and losing on the Plains.
Crazy you say? Crazy like a fox…
So that top 10 recruiting class, that just lost the 2nd in a row at home to tech….CKS is gonna fix it all with the incoming class?? Wha…?
And looking at W & L’s is bad…? Again…wha…?
I know this much – this sucks. Period. That’s all I really know.
POTD. My compliments, a masterpiece of the genre.
Wwwwkirby was obviously, absolutely not ready for prime time. Loses to TN, VAN, and the bugs at home. Dominated by Florida. I wanted him to prove me wrong but bottom line he and his staff can’t coach up the team to avoid these disappointments. Kind of sick to hear how sad, sorry, disappointed Kirby is after the game. Maybe the future will be different but the reality of the present sucks.
Not pissed. Just numb. Not sure what that means.
Same here. 13 point lead, Tech with 2nd and 12 from their own 6. We can’t stop them.
6 point lead inside 4 minutes. Out of a time out we have Eason throw. INT.
Two of the most disheartening losses I’ve seen, both in one home season. Not enough brown liquor to ease my pain.
Add in that we hadn’t stopped anyone let alone Tech from scoring in the red zone all season but we have to just sit there and let the clock tick. Would have been nice to have that pre interception TO then. But I’m actually rather numb myself.
How bout this – INT with 50 sec left in the half. 5* QB, 5* WR among others, 2 all-world running backs…but what do we do? Sit on it – take a tie into half time. Woulda been cool to try to at least get 3 right? but WTF do I know…I’m just a fan. Who’s pissed. And tired.
Wonder what Spurrier does there? How bout Kiffen? Dare I even ask about Richt/Bobo…? Proly not…
I hear ya man. I’m just glad that I don’t live in Atlanta anymore. That game was virtually the same as a Richt coached game in terms of playing not to lose.
Everyone is going to bitch about that throw in the 4th that resulted in a turnover, but you have to trust your star QB to make a good toss there and he did not. Chill out people. It gets better next year. Probably a lot better. Have faith.
Sunshine pumping after a kick in the nuts like that seems ill-advised. And I am saying this as an early endorser of Team Kirby.
That was hardly a kick in the nuts. It was a close loss to a rival who has a decent team with a proven offense that plays a style we had not seen all year. Suck it up and take your head out of the sand.
BTW, the Tech player DIDN’T score the winning TD. The ball was knocked out of his hands as he was going in but before he got it into the end zone. Shades of Jasper Sanks.The SEC refs f#ck Georgia any chance they get–even against an OOC opponent. Look closely at the replay and you can see the ball get knocked out short of the goal line, fall into the end zone and a Georgia player fall on it. Another win stolen!!
They weren’t going to give us that call without a convincing replay angle.
We fired faith. Now we must endure the process. It may work, but year one was not enjoyable. Next year’s results may be better, but it still will not be enjoyable to attend games because of the home schedule. So I guess I am waiting on 2018.
Fired faith? I lost faith in him years ago, other than the fact that we would be good, not great. If this guy is not great, then we get someone who is.
Faith would not have lost this game. Those who wanted Richt out can obviously enjoy this lost tonight. They wanted this.
Didn’t Richt lose at home two years ago on a squib kick and win by the skin of his teeth in OT last year to a 3 win Tech? Tell me how Kirby did much worse than Richt did in the last two years? I mean, Kirby has been there for one year, and Richt was there for 15. Please, tell me how his last two years, 14 and 15, against Tech, were so superior.
No, he didn’t. We beat Tech in regulation last year. Since you are asking me to compare 2 Tech games to 1, the obvious is Richt won one and Smart hasn’t.
Look at the 2015 season and compare it to 2016. We played 8 teams last year that we played this year, and we were 6-2 against those 8 teams last year. We were 4-4 against those same 8 teams this year. We substituted a national champion Alabama for a 7 loss Ole Miss and still got beaten as badly (I know, we played UM when Kelly was healthy, but even then we suffered the worst deficit to an SEC team in our history when we got behind what, 45-0? UM wasn’t historically good with a healthy Kelly.)
We essentially traded Georgia Souther for a better UNC team. The UNC win was a nice win, so there is that in Smart’s favor.
Wins the internet for dumbass comment of the afternoon. Probably not your first time in victory lane either.
Well, you wanted Smart. Enjoy the holidays, ya dumba$$. Let me know how that turns out for ya. My prediction: Smart and McGarity are out on their a$$ in
the next two years. What’s going to happen next year when we lose at Notre Dame?
Don’t hope too hard for Georgia to lose because your Lord and savior got shit canned.
So you have me pegged for someone who was anti-Richt? Seriously? Hated every moment of how that went down, and the result. But that ship has sailed. I hope KS gets his feet under him and succeeds every time UGA takes the field. And I know zero, nada, CMR fans who would ever take pleasure in a UGA loss. People who do that aren’t fans at all, they are losers who put their own opinion above the greater good. Doesn’t matter who they want to be the face of the program.
If I ever pull for UGA to lose it will mean they have lost me as a fan, totally, and I wouldn’t be on this blog if that were the case. Time for the immature children to put the coaching change behind them, and I can say the ones having the biggest issue with it were not the ones in my foxhole last season. Drop it, it comes up in almost every post, whether related or not.
Not really my point. I want to enjoy going to games and cheering on a solid team with a solid game plan. That is not what I saw this year(I know we haven’t seen that since 2012). Next year may be a better team, but we play nobody at home.
As far as championships and greatness, I have hope but no faith.
The gamplan was very solid today. We just didn’t play well on defense.
Disagree…we didn’t play well on defense at the end because of injuries to our defensive backs..GT exploited that. But it was the OFFENSE that cost us this game. Or the offensive play calling…We got down close on three occasions running the ball, and then threw ourselves into fourth down situations. Missed a field goal too. Keep running and use all four downs to get a first down and to hell with field goals. Field goals are for teams that can’at move the ball. Georgia moved the ball all day. It was STUPID to throw the ball and settle for 6 points out of those trips into or close to the red zone. If Georgia keeps it on the ground, they absolutely would have gotten 7 on at least one of those..and left GT deep if they turned it over on downs. The team played good enough to win…the coaches made poor decisions (cautious,cautious) which cost the win.
Same here. Nothing but hope. Sorry I misunderstood your comment.
That’s 3 out of the last 5 we’ve lost to this clown program in our own building.
And two out of the last three we’ve played against them.
at least our beer baron got his way.
I just don’t have the words. UT was a miracle that I could forgive. We got Ole Miss’s best game of the year. Vandy was ugly. FU was worse. This? I’m just beyond words. 13 point lead that we just pissed directly away in the 4th quarter, because we don’t want to just stuff the ball down their throat and chew clock all day long? Eason threw a pick, but we won the turnover margin. Blankenship missed a kick off of a bad snap. This loss is on the staff. Completely and totally.
I hope to god that Ben Cleveland is the real deal next year, and that we don’t have to pick up a grad transfer from an FCS school to anchor our o-line.
At the start of the season, I expected us to be an 8-4 team and said that I would judge the season based on three games. We finished 7-5 (and 1-2 in the games that matter), so yeah I do have some disappointment.
But that Auburn win was real sweet and the losses don’t erase it. I think all you can ask from first-year head coaches is to win one game they shouldn’t. By that standard Coah Smart did just fine. If he closes strong on the recruiting trail, I’ll feel good about the future, especially considering how well some of the freshmen have played.
The losses kind of do for me.
I hope so, man. I thought we had some serious late season momentum going into this game and we really should have won this one. It’s just a shitty, shitty way to end the year at home particularly when you consider the UT and Vandy losses.
To be fair, though, we’ve scraped by Yech more than our fair share over the years so maybe this was a way for the football gods to regress us to the mean.
How about the “don’t lose one game you shouldn’t ” standard?
What did you expect? A first year head coach. A true freshman QB. A less than stellar offensive line left by the former head coach. Would Richt have done any better with this team? I doubt it. He probably would not even have beat North Carolina. 15 years and two SEC championships. That’s a lot to crow about.
These Richtophiles have no need for facts or logic. They positively revel in our losses nowadays. Any excuse to jump online and whine about how much they miss their daddy.
I take it back, we have a tie for dumbassary. But this guy has been great at it for a long, long time.
VERY good Sir Scotch!!
Im sure I’ll get shit for this, but this loss isn’t all on the coaches. The game was lost on big plays as a result of blown assignments on defense, in the passing game of all things. Whatever blame you want to place on the coaches, you’ll have a hard time arguing that they could’ve done much more to, for instance, keep both Dom Sanders and Roquan Smith from letting Searcy go by them on the big pass play on Tech’s last drive. Or making Lorenzo Carter stay on the pitch man like he’s supposed to instead of keying on the qb.
And the decision to pass it on the last drive was a bad one in hindsight, but it should’ve been an easy throw for an easy first down that just happened to get tipped just right to be picked.
This game was a microcosm of Georgia’s season: plenty of blame to go around, and doing just enough to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
Blame whatever. I say it’s our inability to score in the red zone/settling for FGs which equates to the inability to put a team away. Toss in suspect FG kicking and there you go. Had we made that miss FG or scored a TD we most likely wouldn’t be discussing a collapse. That makes 6 games decided by 3 or less this year. We were that close all year or maybe that close to finishing off average teams depending on how you look at it.
And we didn’t.
Sounds like you’re looking at Chaney but won’t say it.
The entire offense
I guess this will calm Rodrigo Blankenship’s dad right down.
Guess we can’t call him big rod on campus anymore.
It’s not Rodrigo’s fault. If a field goal counted 4, he would be a hero. But the coaches that think going for 4 four times gets you more points than grinding it out in the red-zone against a defense you are slashing with runs, is a dumbass. Even Paul Johnson knows that math. If fg’s were unmissable, we’d have won, but three out of four is about right. You’ve risked 12 and got 9 out of it. However if you only make two out of the four by going for a touchdown, you get 14…Field goals suck, except to win on a short clock situation. Field goals are for the cautious that don’t understand that they also de-inspire your offense.
Yup. No scholarship for you. Better kickers out there, for sure.
You know who looks like a great HC candidate?
Jeremy Pruitt. Have you seen what he has done with Alabama’s? The guy is the guru behind Saban’s defense.
When they ran up and down the field on Bud Foster’s D I knew we wouldn’t be able to stop them.
Will Georgia ever score 40 with Smart/Chaney? We had the ball and momentum at the 50 with 10 minutes left and tried to run out the clock. We don’t trust Eason until we need a miracle and then it’s “go win it boy.”
Oh wait….that was rhetorical wasn’t it….
Well, he threw a shitty ball that got picked and lost the game.
He’s just like Stafford as a freshman. Huge arm and relies on natural ability but doesn’t get that you can’t gun every pass. Needs to learn some touch.
Already gotten 3 texts from people who watched art home who were all wtf he fumbled before crossing the goal line. On the last play a tech player just tackled one of our WR. Not that it matters now. We just failed to put them away
The ball came loose but it looked like he landed on top of it and recovered his own fumble. Wouldn’t really matter if the ball was loose.
So Kirby’s first year has to judged an abject failure. One quality win all season. Embarrassing loses at home to Vanderbilt, Tennessee and Georgia Tech. So far, the process sucks. I’m not sold on Chaney and Beamer needs to be fired. Just my two cents.
I can’t stand Chaney. The guy has made a career from coaching Drew Brees.
Agree. I’m mad that Kirby hired him for his connection to an OL coach.
How many times did the guy with 170 yards on the ground touch the ball in the 4th quarter?
We had the ball three times in Q4..the first was a three and out (no touches by Sony)..2nd was 3 touches by Sony, then TO, then INT…and the last drive was the desperation heaves.
Comrades rejoice! Our season of purging is now complete. We have rid ourselves of the selfishness of meaningless winning seasons. No longer must we endure the mediocrity of 10 win success. Our Fearless Leader and fellow Kirbynistas have shown us the way. Only through losing just like we always have but in greater quantities do we learn how to be free for our glorious future! We own #practice and #theprocess2. Now that we are godless our hearts and minds will be strong. Only the weak lament the game score. The death of our revolutionary leader Fidel is but an omen. We shall rise as one people! We shall recruit! We shall practice indoors! We will call places like Shreveport and Charlotte home, forsaking the bourgeoisie places like New Orleans, Atlanta, Dallas, Miami and LA.
Viva La Revolution! Viva Kirby! Viva McGarity! Viya Con Dios to mediocre winning!
Yes, Comrade! This is the spirit. This is the redistribution of our bourgeois booster class’s wealth: millions have they poured into this program but we will ensure it goes to support our comrades in Nashville and Atlanta. This revolution cannot be stopped. Viva our dear leader, Kirby! Viva the dawg-proletariat!
Let us march towards our glorious future where we–yes we–will finally be among the tired and the poor of the conference. Viva la Revolution, indeed!
Indeed Comrade!! There is no need to fear–the game is not about winning. It is all about installing THE PROCESS!! Sort of like the 10 year plan that Stalin came up with that showed everyone in Cuba the RIGHT way. Viva Kirby! Viva The Process! Viva losing if it leads us to enlightenment!! Who needs those lousy double digit win seasons when we can have a glorious revolution at Sanford Stadium!!
Truly there has been a glorious revolution of the culture!
Couldn’t tell if he fumbled before he crossed…but when has Georgia ever gotten a call on a replay or the replay of a replay? Tech held a lot…they showed some of it on replays.
Replay it in super slo-mo. You’ll see the fumble and it was out short of the goal line.
But you know we don’t get the benefit of replays except very, very occasionally..we even get burned on replays of replays. IF the shoe had been on the other foot, however, it would have been ruled a fumble.
One thing not being talked about is the rash of defensive injuries we had that facilitated GT’s last drive.
That really was a factor..but we should have been well ahead by then.
Even if we had guys out injured, our backups should know not to let the A-back run unguarded straight down the middle of the defense and wide open for 40 yard completions.
Up by 13 and Chaney played not to lose with trying to bang it up the middle. Big mistake .
Game reminds me of 08 when we were up by 16 at half and then we give up a play And all of a sudden it’s Tech’s game.
Must learn how to step on their neck.
This was a loss that was coming for a year even if Mark Richt was kept. The untold story about this rivalry since Paul Johnson has gone there is that every single first year DC for Georgia has struggled against his triple option and now 3 of the 4 games have been losses. And even if Richt was kept, Pruitt was gone. He was gone even if he wasn’t going to Alabama because of how much Georgia’s AD and powerful boosters hated his guts.
The defense did not have a good game plan at first and then later the secondary was letting guys run wide open on every pass play but this game is on that sequence after the fourth down stop at midfield. Why go conservative there? You still have to play as if the game is in doubt.
Mark Richt beat Tech with a new DC this year.
And lost to UNC on his home field. How’d Kirby do against the Heels on a neutral field?
Just sayin’ …
Just say’ that your comment has nothing to do with whether a new DC can beat Tech.
Different players… Not an apples to apples comparison. This is what happens at Georgia, not at Miami, Virginia Tech, or anywhere else.
Every time Georgia has had a new defensive coordinator go against Paul Johnson, they’ve struggled.
Perhaps there was wisdom in the annual scrimmage against the Fighting Erks.
Mysticism aside, I don’t believe the option is the logistical nightmare it’s cracked up to be.
I’ve been saying for almost a year now: Might as well close your eyes and hold your nose until 2017, because 2016 isn’t going to be pretty. Anyone with a fucking brain and two eyes could see it.
Kirby came from a program that (a) actually knows how to evaluate talent at positions like OL and DB, unlike Richt & Co., and (b) understands the importance of depth on a roster, unlike Richt & Co. As much as I love our DBs, they’re not especially talented (pretty sure Sanders, Mauger, and Baker were all 3-stars, and Davis was a walk-on). And as we found out in that 4th quarter, it’s not a very deep group either. And I don’t think I need to explain how bad our OL is. Frankly, I think Pittman pulled off a minor miracle to get them performing at a passable level during the second half of the season. Our starting LT is a transfer from Rhode Island. Sorry, but Rhode Island guys can’t play in the SEC. Those two position groups are currently weak spots on an otherwise fairly talented (but not nearly deep enough) team.
Thankfully, we’re already seeing evidence of future greatness. Kirby’s building from the ground up, and we’re seeing that in a young DL that will be absolutely nasty next season. And recruiting seems to be going well, especially at the OL and DB positions. Not saying we’ll be making the playoff in 2017, but an Eastern Division title seems like a reasonable expectation at this point.
It’s just unfortunate that so many in this fanbase appear to have the patience and critical thinking skills of an infant.
In the meantime, I am once again glad to have gone to graduate school at a university with a top-tier basketball program. Good riddance to this football season.
I agree, there was a drooling jackass sitting down from me screaming about how “stupid” every other play was and what an idiot Eason is. Goober central.
Richt wins 10 or 11 with this team.
Whatever you say, sweetheart. Da U is back!!!1!11!!
Richt wins 10 games easily. Three home games absolutely gift wrapped to the opponents. First time since 2000 that we have been 1-3 against our 4 biggest rivals. And had Auburn been healthy it would have been 0-4. And McGarity is raising ticket prices next year.
He would have gone 9-3. Would have lost to Ole Miss and Florida and would have still had an “oopsie” loss vs Tennessee.
That’s why I said 10/11. Still got to factor in a bowl game.
I don’t care how thin we are in the secondary, we’ve got more athletes on the bench than Tech has on the field. And even if Kirby doesn’t have the personnel he wants right now, I still expect to see progress with the players he has. We’re still making September mistakes in November. For instance we had Ridley and Woerner in the same area on 3rd down in the red zone. Incomplete pass in traffic results in a field goal. That’s a mistake that should be corrected in August.
“I don’t care how thin we are …”
That’s where I stopped reading. I’m sure the rest was insightful, though.
Our three and four deep in the secondary would start or challenge Roof’s starters for playing time. Tech would love to be as “thin” as us. Is that insightful enough?
Don’t bother with reason. There’s probably not a single player on tech’s depth chart that would play for us. That more than anything else is what makes losses like this, ’14 and ’08 completely unacceptable.
“Don’t bother with reason.”
Don’t worry. He didn’t.
No. For starters, when you take into account the fact that Tech’s secondary has played their entire careers in Roof’s system, the talent disparity isn’t nearly as wide as you’re making it out to be. (We’ve got a couple of 4-stars in Parrish and Smith, but we’ve also got a walk-on starting at safety.) And second, as we all know, the triple-option is meant to neutralize talent disparities. This is sort of the point. It forces even the most talented players to be disciplined and play assignment football. And when you’ve got a defense as young and inexperienced as ours (especially behind the starters, many of whom were out of the game late), having just spent an entire season trying to learn a new system from Tucker & Co., discipline and assignment reads are going to be a real issue.
I don’t know that I would have predicted today’s loss, since I generally try to avoid making predictions. But as far as I’m concerned, it’s one of the least surprising losses of the season — second perhaps only to the Ole Miss ass-whipping, which everyone should’ve seen coming from a mile away.
Agreed. Good post all around. Hold faith for next year…cupboard was empty, and richt needed to go. Let’s wait and make a judgement after smart has a couple seasons of recruits under his belt.
I agree with that Knox…except this game was lost by bad play calling in the red zone.We could’a, should’a won it.
I’m not too upset, but I’m not really as optimistic that KS is ready for the big-time as I had believed..If his learning curve isn’t really short and sharp, we will continue to have frustrating, unnecessary losses.
But I’ll be pulling for this team regardless.
Turd, we do need JC to tell us if that was a face plant or a bed wet, would help clarify you comments.
Smart will never ever out recruit Saban or Meyer. With no OL and no Chubb or Michel next year, just how many of these #3 recruiting class will see the field next year, about the same that saw the field this year. If you think Smart is going to win the east next year you better think again.
Hired the wrong coach from Alabama should of hired Kiffin
Thank god for your critical thinking so maybe you can explain to me why Smart was building our 2017 and 2018 offensive line by playing almost exclusively 2 seniors and a graduate transfer instead of getting our freshmen, redshirt freshmen and sophomore offensive linemen some extensive game experience during this throwaway season? Next year you critical thinkers will be pointing out to those of us with no fucking brain or eyes that “of course we are struggling because we have three offensive linemen with no game experience.”
Then I can tell other folks with no fucking brains how much I learned from a man named Turd.
Said it before uga runs the wrong offense . Even bama has switched to the spread. Saw techs o invented in the early 80s in Stateboro Ga. Now Tom Herman will take a version of it to Texas and we could have had him last year. We have better players at all positions all and they have a scheme and a coaching staff that can coach. Kirby should stop jumping around and bitching out the players. He also did not call time out and could have saved 30 seconds when tech was going in but he let the clock run and took the time out home with him. Eason will never Beat Florida and Smart may beat the 1 out of 6 or 7 Maybe . UGA admin never backed CMR and now we have this shit pathetic
If you weren’t going to move on from being conservative, the new bus is just the same as the old.
Kirby and Co. need a large poster of this, in front of their desks, to stare at every morning until we kick off next season, and beyond – http://bit.ly/2gt3WWE
I used to be like you all only a few short years ago – fretting over the actions of a bunch of idiots with IQ’s of 70 who shouldn’t even be cleaning the toilets at UGA much less enrolled as students running around every Saturday giving each other concussions – then I woke up.
Your country is under attack. Your culture is under attack. Your government wants to import Latin American socialists and Middle Eastern terrorist rapists who will pump your communities full of drugs, violate your wives, sisters, mothers, and daughters, commit bombings and mass shootings, and vote themselves more benefits until we finally collapse under the weight of the giant socialist welfare state you allowed to form while you were busy watching sportsball.
When your grandchildren one day ask you how the United States became such a horrible place to live and why you sold their birthright down the river when you allowed your country to become the 3rd world, imagine the shame you will have to endure when you look into their eyes and tell them you were too busy watching sportsball to care.
Time to grow up, people.
Fuck you moron.
Oh I’m sorry. Did I poop all over the fact you are a “grown man” spending your time on a blog complaining about a bunch of future criminals chasing around an inflated swine bladder who didn’t live up to your expectations?
When you lead a sad and empty life, distractions like sportsball fill that gaping hole in your soul white your national pride once was.
“Did I poop all over the fact you are a “grown man” spending your time on a blog,” he said, on a blog.
You must be that idiot on the bridge with the megaphone.
Lol. No doubt. He is THAT guy.
I don’t watch enough sportsball to get the inside joke but I’m sure if I was aware of the proper context it would be very funny.
At least we are not trolls.
Please tell us what us grown men out to be doing. Cross burning? Lynching?
Just so you know you prove the fallacy of racial superiority. People who hate people because of their color, their religion, their sexual orientation etc… are idiots. There are so many good reasons to hate people. Among those reasons: stupidity.
Is stupidity the reason you hate all Americans who have a conservative point of view. It is obvious by your vast array of politically charged posts that the real enemy to our nation is anyone who represents a belief that differs from you. One more thing if I may. Comparing Trump, or anyone involved in American politics to “Hitler” is insulting and repulsive to anyone with even the barest knowledge of history and truth. There are many books you can peruse to get a better grasp on the true horrors of Hitler and the third reich, none of which bear any resemblance to American leaders. I might recommend, “The Dungeon Democracy” by Christopher Burney, or “No Time For Silence”.by Sylvia Lombroso. These may help to give you some insight as to why it is reprehensible to call someone with whom you have disagreement in policy “Der Fuhrer”.Please feel free to begin the name calling. It’s one of your more charming traits.
Dude calls himself “angry Anglo” and all our football players criminals with a 70 iq. Read his first post. It should have remained in its original German.
You can adopt him into to your conservative tent if you like but he’s clearly a flaming and proud racist. I’m thinking his opinion of our golf team would be different since most are “Anglo” or close enough that he couldn’t tell the difference.
Don’t waste your time with this one Tlk, he is the mirror-opposite of the other fool, just on the other end of the spectrum. Under his expanded definition of race, everyone who disagrees with ANY one position of his is a racist…even if the subject/comment has nothing at all to do with race. damnedest thing. But as a hater, he doesn’t care. Just labels you and moves on to label the next guy. In fact, since we now are all known racists, you would think maybe we could all get along. Could it be there are issues besides race? Man, that will shake him to the core. Imagine when he looks in the mirror and sees a bigoted, close-minded racist looking back at him? Since he is one too, he might have to find a new cause. He isn’t bright enough to read or comprehend anything you might suggest, just a programmed tool reposting what he is told by the puppet masters with no understanding of the issues.
Both Left, and Right extremists are a waste of human DNA but, like it or not, they are out there (and a lot more just like him on that Left side.). Unfortunately, they are succeeding in dividing, and weakening this once great nation. And they will continue to fly the damn plane straight into the ground if our direction isn’t changed immediately. Spend your time on people who are capable of thinking and understanding, this one really isn’t worth the effort.
Nicely written Mac, and so accurate. Sadly you are so right about the direction the plane is being flown.
Your spending YOUR time on a blog complaining about the complainers. While I agree about what’s happening to our society, I also realize that most of us can have more than one interest in life.
I’d bet most of the people on here are very patriotic.
There are a lot of Veterans that post on here…and love college football. A
Also, College Football is broadcast to our troops around the world and on ships at sea..to make their lives a little LESS focused on their grim tasks and duties for a few hours.
As far as your tasteless comments about the players….GFY.
Fuc off yourself Illini . Head to Wisconsin and start stealing votes pussy
You seems to be calm and measured today. Decaf? Someone piss on your copy of Mein Kampf?
The only pussy here was the one your mother was handing out.
U would not like it since u suc dic
Thanks Adolf. It’s good to know the nazi party feels free to come out from under their rocks.
Derek havenet heard much of your fat mouth since the election as you ran it up until then . See you can always tell an open minded guy like Derek. Call names when he disagrees with someone like Hitler. See as long as you agree with him he is an open minded lib. Remember you running your lib mouth about Trump. Head up to Wisconsin and start stealing votes Lib
Most voters agree with me.
“The electoral college is a disaster for democracy.”
We are not a democracy or your gal would be pres Derek. We a a constitutional repulic .Where did u get your degree from that you don’t know this. Hurts doesent it . You heading to Wisconsin ?
I quoted your candidate jackass. I never said the electoral college was a disaster. Trump did tho. Moron.
Hurts don’t it pussy
That the guy who thinks that the person with the most votes should be president is ok with taking office with 2 million less votes? Not really. I knew a little less than half the people were fucking idiots and that the candidate of the idiots was a hypocritical scumbag.
I thought conservatives didn’t like it when minorities ran things. What happen to that?
“That the guy who thinks that the person with the most votes should be president is ok with taking office with 2 million less votes?”
Kinda like how the gal who said it’d be an affront to democracy to challenge the results of the election is now challenging the results of the election? As it turns out, people involved in politics say stupid shit all the time, most of which they will almost certainly be made to regret at a later time.
Except he wasn’t in politics at the time. Mein Führgrabber needs no excuse to say stupid shit. With with respect to this observation though was it stupid or is it simply ironic? Is there justification for the electoral college today? Had Hillary lost by 2 million votes and had more electoral votes would you be cool with that? You need not answer honestly. It’s rhetorical.
Trump’s been involved in politics for his entire adult life. That’s why I used those terms. I could just as easily have said “public figures.” And frankly, I think it was both stupid and ironic of him to say that.
And the electoral college is as justified today as it’s ever been. As this “Jp” clown not-so-eloquently-but-nonetheless-rightly pointed out, we do not live in a democracy. We live in a republic. Every political theorist since ancient Greece has been keenly aware of the flaws of direct democracies, and the founders were no different. Like it or not, but California shouldn’t have the power to elect a president for the other 49 states.
During the week or two leading up to the election, there were a few forecasts that predicted precisely the opposite outcome: Trump winning the popular vote but losing the electoral vote. Did you think the electoral college was unjust then? You need not answer honestly. It’s rhetorical.
Since electoral votes are distributed by population I’m not sure that it reflects the sort of republicanism that the senate represents. It is quite similar to the House which is supposed to reflect the will of the people i.e., democracy.
I’ve always thought that most of the people get these calls right. If this minority elected president is as bad as the last one, we’ll have some real trouble.
Truly, half of the voters are f’ing idiots and voted for a proven liar, thief and, on a personal note, a monster and utter failure as a human being. Thank the Lord they didn’t prevail this time
If more than half are idiots then there’s no hope for either of us is there?
I’ll go with my “just less than half are idiots” premise.
Go delete some classified emails and do some spirit cooking and sell some uranium to the ruskies you lib puss
Go fuck yourself dude…this is about Georgia football, something you watch from afar. Liberals suck so guess what…
Dude. This got started by your guy, dude. Dude who calls himself “angry Anglo” changed the subject dude. Pay attention dude. Reading is fundamental dude. Dude you’re the expert on sucking around here so how could argue with you dude? Dude. Dude. Dude.
30 states to 20 Derek hurts bad we probably keep our copy of Mien Kamph same place you keep your copy of the communist manifesto you intolerant cry baby. Obama encourages illegal aliens to vote you cool with that Der ?
2 million American voters voted the other way. A solid majority of voters oppose Mein Führgrabber.
So Angry Anglo says exactly what the president elected did and YOU attack libs for it?
(Prob should stay out of this one, but) JP…I think when Illini said “Go Fuck Yourself” he was talking to Anglo and you may have though he meant you. Could be wrong.
I didn’t even see JP’s post, you are correct as to my target.
Sure, this seems like a totally reasonable and not at all insane comment to leave on a blog about Georgia football.
I am merely making an attempt to save you from the future shame you will suffer by attempting to pull you away from the bread and circuses. I too used to care about these criminals who shouldn’t even be allowed to carry a book on the campus of UGA. Only trying to help out here.
Now that was clever, Turd…made me laugh out loud!
By the way, what is wrong with drinking fruit juices?
And not recruiting Brad Stewart from Benedictine was really a mistake.
Oh yeah because he is sooooooo elusive and has such top end speed (that is sarcasm in case your pea sized brain couldn’t figure it out). I could catch the ball when no one is within 30 yards of me.
He’s a fucking player.
So are the other 100 kids wearing a uniform. He isn’t good enough to play at UGA. Just like the rest of that roster.
Exactly! Because we definitely don’t have any 3-stars, 2-stars, or walk-ons on our team. Nope. Literally every single one of our players is more talented than every single one of their players. Yeeaaaarrghh!
Welcome to Ray Goff 2.0. Great recruiter, shitty coach.
Even with school out and unlimited practice time last week it looked very Golf like.
UGAA needs to send my donation form to Don Leeborn, he picked this pony, let him pay for it.
I know the Senator posted this morning that he hates the last game of the year. For me, I’m glad this season is over. Other than the UNC and Auburn games, there wasn’t a whole lot of joy in this season. We saw flashes of what this program could be, but for most of the season, I saw a team that with very few exceptions did not get better this season. Good luck to the seniors in the next stage of life. I hope to call many of you fellow alumni soon. To Sony and Nick, thanks for all you’ve done in spite of everything that has happened around you two (assuming you both head to a Sunday payday). To the coaches and returning players, we support you as you represent our proud university. It’s time to turn the page and find a way to start preparations for ’17, win a meaningless bowl game in a cold weather location, and close on what could be a special recruiting class.
Pretty much. It’s a drag because I don’t have much faith in the group going forward and most of that has to do with our fat play caller.
I won’t be surprised if Chubb actually comes back next season. He could probably use another season of rehab under Ron Courson and would possibly pass Herschel as UGA’s all-time leading rusher.
No way he comes back unless he gets a draft score that’s terrible. Only so much tread on the tires and no reason to waste them running behind an offensive line with 2 starters returning and none prepared to play.
ee, maybe I am misreading the nonverbal clues but it appears to me that Chubb has been joyless the last several games. I sense he is ready for a change in scenery. I can’t blame him. I agree with you about the logic of cashing in now. The NFL teams have rehab staffs, too.
I wouldn’t be having much fun either if I came into the game and ran into 8 or 9 man fronts using the same plays called over and over again that everyone knows what’s coming. I would want to get the heck away from Jim Chaney as quickly as possible.
Why couldn’t we deal with adversity in the last 8 minutes? That includes the players and the coaches. All we needed was one more stop or one more first down! I swear I don’t understand why we were running up the middle late in the game when Tech brought their safeties up.
Ding , ding, ding.
Comment of the post.
If Kirby is serious abou winnng and changing the culture. He needs to fire Beamer and Cheney tonight. It IS OK to throw on first down!!!!!
Almost passed out when I read TMC post, then realized it was not PTC.
It seems to me, and I’m no expert, mind you, dropped passes really had a major impact on our season. The one by Ridley early hurt and what could have been a TD turned into a missed FG that would have been the difference in the game in spite of Ridley’s drop of a perfect pass.
I see a lot to be optimistic about and I see some reasons for pessimism. Six of one, a half dozen of the other.
We must get better at safety. It’s a glaring weakness. I haven’t seen a snot bubble in so long I have to watch YouTube reruns of Greg Blue to remember what a safety in red and black looks like.
We must get better at offensive tackle if we ever hope to be consistent with this elusive philosophy known as balance. It’s been this way since we had the phenom NFL left tackle Cordy Glenn playing guard next to future NFL guard Clint Boling playing tackle. It’s very confusing.
We need a kicking specialist. I miss being Field Goal U on days like this. I love the glasses and shit but God knows I miss going to piss on FG attempts.
I just want to know why can’t we have nice things?
I haven’t posted in a few years but I read Senator Blutarsky every day. I skip the comments except for after Game 1 and after Game 12. It’s very enlightening. In doing so, I’ve learned what CMR has long known….. there are a lot of ignorant people outside the arena.
Excellent work this season, Bluto.
Fuck Georgia Tech.
Didn’t Ray Goff have a team that over the course of one season lose two games by a total of five points? CKS may never be Ray Goff.
I like Aaron Davis but he was a walk on and I think a senior. You saw how badly things went when he left the game. And the OL was getting a push today but has mostly been a trainwreck. Doesn’t help when the OC runs right into a loaded box. Lots of drops this year. Ridley is a freshman but I think has potential. Godwin isn’t a freshman but seems to drop a big one every game or so. Would be nice to have a WR or two that isn’t like my height and weight. One thing that you can say about Bama is that while they are also stacked on the lines and at RB they always seem to have one big physical WR.
Now that I’ve had time to stew….it’s been years since I was this pissed off. I’m sure someone will point out a Florida game and say I have a short memory, but, nope. That was another level of bed shitting.
Game started like it was gonna be a shootout but then the D played better and we took over…sorta. I man’smoved the ball pretty well between the 20s but this offense has been and is anemic inside that. An entire freaking season and Chaney still thinks we can run the ball on 1st and 2nd inside the redzone. This offense has and will continue to truly live and die under the same gameplan every single game. Hey! That end-a-round to McKenzie got 4 yards so let’s run it the next 2 plays in a row. Hey! Eason was really close on a couple deep passes early on, no sense in trying to stretch the field again. Intermediate pass?? What’s this strange magic? If Kirby doesn’t get rid of him he can go too as far as I’m concerned. I just don’t see a better oline making up for him. He can Come up with some good plays but then he turns it into the Jim Donnan tunnel screen or stops running it all together. There is no continuity. I’m done with his ass
The nail in the coffin for Chaney should have been when he lined up IMac at tailback, then the other team calls TO and he runs the Same Freaking Play!!!
Plus taking stupid Delay or execution penalties or wasting TOs bc he can’t get the play in fast enough. We probably could have used that extra TO that was called before the 4th quarter pick seeing as how we can’t stop anyone in the red zone.
I still think Kirby has the ability to be a championship coach….IF he has the ability to recognize and to drop the ax on the dead weight. IF….
He needs to be f’n swift. Like press conference before the bowl game swift. Chaney will do fine at a program and in a conference with lower expectations.
I agree as a fan but I also think it was fair and just to have given him an entire season. Well that season is over
I have an honest question. Why didn’t they redshirt Holyfield when our two main backs are probably gone and he got maybe five or six carries that I can remember?
I’m sure I will repeat this post multiple times this week but here we go.
No one can argue that Richt had a fantastic record against tech, only 2 losses in 15 tries but does any one remember his first loss?
Think back to 2008 where Mark Richt’s Georgia Bulldogs blew a 16 point lead at Sanford Stadium to lose a three point game in his first look at Paul Johnson’s triple option. Sound familiar?
A few slight differences to point out though, UGA was preseason ranked #1 in 2008 coming off one of the best years in school history with a roster full of players that would go on to be drafted in the NFL including a #1 overall junior quarterback, a 1st round junior running back, , wide receivers that would go in the 1st, 2nd, and 4th round of their respective draft years. All of which were recruited by and played for the same coach their entire career.
In fact, if you take out the O’Liary and Chantastic years, Richt had a very respectable but not as dominate 6-2 record against tech, 2-2 at Sanford Stadium. But I agree, it’s wayyyyy better to ignore the relevant facts when wallowing in self pity or reaching for torches and pitchforks.
Fact of the matter is, this season hasn’t gone as any of us had hoped but it has gone about how many expected given what we knew.
I’d say it’s a combo of younger fans wanting instant gratification and older fans worrying that they may not make it to see hopeful success. I’m kinda in the middle and it’s not fun either.
Dude. You’re reaching.
With what part exactly?
If you take out those at bats in which Hank Aaron hit a home run the guy was not nearly as productive.
Does that give you a hint at what Skydawg meant?
Now I get it, thanks for that spot on, apples to apples comparison to the point I made. Nothing like combating overreaching
comments by ignoring facts and oversimplifying.
I’m on board now. This bum lost to tech, fire him!
Don’t bother responding, I’ll catch the profound analysis tomorrow on finebaum right after Tammy fires Gus Malzahn.
Derek , Illini , turd , and anglo. God Bless and see y’all next year. Thanks for the spirited debate on all of it Out
