You may be a 2016 Georgia fan if…

… you take more pleasure out of the administration squirming to avoid facing Mark Richt in a bowl game than the outcome of the bowl game itself.

    If a loss to Miami in a meaningless bowl game provided the impetus for a change at AD, I’d probably take it. I hate saying that, but we need something to spur action and the money isn’t going to stop flowing in the near future. He’ll be gone in late 2018 if Kirby doesn’t pan out, but that’s too late for a number of other programs.

    Also, any guess as to whether the AD would fight harder against a Miami bowl game or all noon starts at home next season?

    McGoofy will take his panties off and man-up for a change to avoid this bowl game. The Noon kick-offs, not so much.

    Both Ohio State and Michigan had 4 noon starts this year. I’m tired of hearing the moaning and groaning about noon starts.

      Bless your heart.

      Ohio state played three home games at noon.
      One of which is traditionally a noon game. And they had seven home games.

        I did miss the Michigan State game. UGA had 4. I dare say OSU is a better team than UGA. If UGA wants more home games then move the Florida game to home and home or don’t play kick-off classics.

          Truth is the Big? was much later in adopting night games (adding lights). And they have a much more compelling case for afternoon starts than UGA, the weather is milder in September and October during the afternoon while more severe during the nights of November. TV has much to do with both schedules but it makes more since for UGA to fight early starts and for ohio to be content with them. Bad comparison, imo.

    What did any of us expect from a first year head coach and a true freshman quarterback? Speaking of CMR, how did his teams do with true freshman quarterbacks? Would any coach, using a pro-style offense run by a true freshman quarterback, have won anything of consequence this year with this team? The answer, IMO, is clearly “no”. You may gripe over style points and fine details, but this year was always going to be an investment in the future. Period. So let’s be grateful for wins over UNC and Auburn, along with a possible bowl win, and quit with hypothetical comparisons. A foundation’s been laid, Kirby is working his butt off recruiting, and the future looks very bright, based on the incredible youth on our team. Glass half-full, anyone?

      In 2006, Georgia went 9-4 and finished the season with three straight wins over ranked teams.

        And how did Richt do this year with a NFL prospect under center?

        Richt can coach. He doesn’t run programs very well. Hopefully Kirby isn’t the reverse of that.

        LOL and we lost to Vandy ad KY that year. Charles Johnson and Geno Atkins didn’t hurt either.

        • You’re right. But unlike this season, it was a team that clearly improved by the end of the year. Not sure why that qualifies for a chuckle.

            I chuckle because its always something. That team had a coaching staff that had been in place for 4 years and had 2 NFL All -pros, and a really good kicker, of which if UGA had those we would be 10-2 and this argument would be what it is…..how do you know most of the individual players didn’t improve are you grading them each week?

            • VanGorder left after the 2004 season. Coutu was hurt mid-year, which cost them a game or two.

              How do I know players didn’t improve? You mean, other than by watching their play from game one through game twelve? I guess you got me there.

              Look, if you think Smart’s done a good job this year, that’s fine. I see a guy who’s learning on the job. All I can do is hope the lessons take sooner rather than later.

                Where is any of my comments have I said he did a good job? I am an idiot fan, just like everyone else on here. I think it was a very disappointing season and worthy of examination. This team and roster is a disaster which is why Richt was fired. The OL and WRs may just be the worst in the SEC. An 18 year old played QB in front of a 22 year old with dozens of starts. The few good players on this team arefreshmen and sophs. Show me the juniors and seniors who will play in the NFL. But yes losing on a freak play to TN and losing to Vandy, UF, Ole Miss sucked…..but fans evaluating the program after 1 year whether they support or criticize have no clue. I have no clue if Smart is the right guy. Cheney is a huge ? Same with Tucker. Special teams sucks. I have no clue on any of that. Name for me the successful coaches in the SEC since Saban 2007? LMAO. A couple of outliers who no longer hold jobs…..its not an easy task but once the move was made, you give him at least 2 years before you make judgments about how he manages the program. You give him a couple of classes and let him build the way he wants and then he goes 6-1 or 5-2 next year in the first 7 or he will be in trouble. But look at Dabo, to me that is the most similar situation and Kirby Smart has a TON more experience than Dabo had and a larger recruiting base which is why his first full class will be lights out.

                  And when I say judgments vs examining I mean fans that poke holes in every facet of the program like they know the solution…. versus simply raising the questions. There is a difference.

      What did we expect? Improvement as the year went on, but I don’t really think we saw that.

        I think there was improvement. Kick coverage and placekicking got better, the young defensive linemen came along nicely, even the OL played better the last four games. It looked like Smart’s game management really improved for the UK and Auburn games, only to take a huge step back against Tech. Maybe it’ll be the catalyst to make him learn how to put a team away. Who knows? The shitty part of all this is after seemingly finding a groove and improving each week since the UF game, the last 12 minutes of he season, due to regressing to crappy play and coaching, erased any capital the new staff had built with fans and the media from the UK game forward.

    This is unfortunate. Playing Miami might well be the only interesting thing about the UGA post season. As a fan I would love to see it. I would think it would give the players extra motivation to use the extra practice time to get better. I think the “kids” would love to play in front of their old coach, even if he is on the other side.

    Off topic, I put kids in quotes because I cringe every time I hear Kirby say it. It just sounds condescending to them, or perhaps Kirby trying to give himself some gravitas.

    Agree with J D on the kids part Kirby likes to use, believe it does make him feel more Nick Saban. Most coaches use young men.

    But for bowl game, heck this is a throwaway season so why not get embarrassed by an average Miami team.

    I would love for us to play Miami. And to be honest, I may even pull for Miami if we do. Perhaps finishing a failure of a season with two embarrassing loses might get somebody fired.

    If the administration fights as hard to avoid a bowl game with Miami as they did for A.J. and TGIII, I’ll bet we play Miami. TV would love it and you know they rule.
