Et tu, Aaron?

Aaron Murray, maybe to establish a little pundit cred, has picked Mississippi State, albeit reluctantly, to win tomorrow.  He’s going to be on the field for the game, which ought to be somewhat awkward, but the hilarious part is that some of his former teammates are giving him crap about it.

    I’ll be watching the sideline to see if Zo and Bellamy drag Aaron into that little medical tent for an attitude adjustment. 😉

  3. I’d be lying if I said I have confidence in the offense, so I see where he’s coming from.

    A bit tacky to make a pick on a game your working. Surprised ESPN doesn’t have a policy on that.

    Still DGD though!

    One of these days these guys are going to realize that they’ll always be called a homer no matter how many times they pick against Georgia, but Georgia fans will never forget.

    I’ve thought we weren’t going to win a few times. Tomorrow isn’t one of them, but it’s happened. I don’t see what the big deal is, other than he’s wrong.

    This is spot we’ve consistently flourished in. I’d be much more worried if we’d been getting all the love all week long. That’s been a killer for us. When the other team gets all the love and we’re being questioned, we’ve usually stepped up.

    I’m more worried about next week when every one will say: “they beat the team that crushed LSU! Bring on Bama!” Meanwhile we need to take care of business in Knoxville and then Nashville and then Jax and then two big home games and at auburn.

    They are gonna try and crown us tomorrow night and all next week. That’s when CKS will really be earning that $.

  7. Go Dawgs!

    David Pollack is a proud Bulldog, but he also has been honest about his impressions of the team when he’s on the clock. I respect Aaron Murray for doing the same thing.

    And heck, Aaron’s fellow former Bulldog Pat Dye probably helped spur UGA to an SEC Championship with his “man enough” bit back in 2002. Sometimes hearing someone from the family speak up can make you work hard. This is much ado about nothing.

    Give the kid a break. He’s been conditioned to seeing us lay an egg at night on National TV. He still has the scars…

  9. This is starting to feel like USCe 2013. Everyone is lining up against us because of one player (Fitzgerald vs. Clowney). We came out and played like our hair was on fire. I’m starting to get the same feeling I had before ND.

    Dawgs win a battle – 24-21.

    I agree with Aaron making the pick. I’m just not convinced we will score enough points. I really like our offensive guys and I think Fromm can handle the game. There just isn’t any one thing that the O does well though. We should see us line up and run the ball over and over with mis direction stuff mixed in but I’m afraid Chaney won’t settle into a rhythm. I know our boys can win but I’m a wait and see for tomorrow night.


  11. I know Eason is practicing this week and assume Fromm will start tomorrow. Has anyone heard anything official about the starter?


    • Biggus Rickus

      I don’t think there will be anything official. Whether Eason can play or not, it makes some sense for Smart to be coy about it. I’m not sure how much that kind of stuff matters, but coaches sure seem to think it does.

    There’s method behind AM’s madness. He wants that OC job, or at least the QB coaching job, to open up asap.

    And I’d love to have AM in the TV booth doing the play by play analysis tomorrow night.


  13. Luginbill picked the Dogs, too. Apparently many pundits are picking against us.

    His mom joined the crowd tweeting in support of Georgia.

    Y’all, this is a “Man Enough” move. We got this.

    Time to TP his house again.

    Murray (and Pollack) are just trying to make a living – they can’t all be the eye candy/closers at local insurance and investment firms…

    The Vegas crowd has UGA favored to win. Nuff said.


    • Mayor, Nuff said. But If I was forced to bet on the game I would have to
      go with MSU. The top 2-second place teams In the SEC on the line.
      That really impresses me. I still pull for the Dawgs & hope for the best.


      • Mayor

        It’s a 4 point game. You can bet on MSU and win and the Dawgs can still win 17-14 or a similar score. Personally I would take a 1 point win and be happy. That said I hope the Dawgs lay half a hundred on them and the D shuts them out just to shut the ESPN talking heads up–including AM.

    I don’t gas who picks who, as long as we play well and win. In fact, not being picked and winning is the best of all.

    I have learned in over 50 years watching college football that it is tough for a team to have a big emotional win over a tough rival one week then play at its best in a road game the next week. I thought the night we dominated Alabama 21-0 in 1976 that we could go to Texas Stadium and whip the Cowboys the next Saturday. Instead we went to Mississippi, struggled, and lost. Had we made the Mississippi trip another Saturday I believe we would have won, we were much better than it. The timing, traveling after a big win, got us.

    Maybe MSU, which hasn’t won an SEC championship since before D-Day, has developed a tough and deep enough team after all these years to play as well on the road as it did at home in a big win over a rival one win before. Hat’s off to it if it is, but I am not buying it.

    Can we lose? Sure, but we are the better, deeper team. Its QB is better on 9/23/17 than our freshman QB is, and ours may make freshman mistakes , but overall we are the better team, playing at home at night after a cupcake tune up.
