Ladies and gentlemen, the SEC’s leading rusher is…

My two favorite post-game quotes from yesterday:
Chubb, when asked whether Georgia’s 423-rushing yard performance showed the identity of the team, grinned at the reporter.
“We want to run the ball,” Chubb said. “And I think you know that.”
Then Chubb giggled. Yes. Giggled.
Nick Chubb, giddy. Actually, that’s a little scary.
Five different Georgia players had carries in the first half and Gaillard maybe should have been credited for one when he pushed the pile for five yards on one first-half run.
“I told them, hey, I got at least four yards on that myself,” Gaillard said.
I said the exact same thing watching that play.
I could get used to this kind of happy talk.
Mike Leach is gonna Mike Leach at every opportunity.
It sure beats Saban’s Coke bottle.
We’ve seen this play before.
It took seven overtimes to do it, but Western Michigan beat Buffalo yesterday, 71-68. As you can imagine, there’s plenty of crazy shit from it, but here’s the topper:
The “gimme the car keys, Mom” moment at the end of the clip is perfect.
How much shit do you think he took for that in the locker room after the game?
The coaches and the team may not be happy with their collective effort against Vanderbilt, which, I might add, still led to the ‘Dores being held to 236 yards on the day, but I can’t say I’m going to get too worked up over stats like these:
- 3.89 yards per play, good for first in the conference and fourth nationally
- 10 points per game, good for first in the conference and second nationally
I assume you know what first in the conference means. If the Dawgs are on par with Alabama in those defensive areas, I’ll take that in a heartbeat.
“We made a lot of mistakes on the defensive side of the ball, so we have to get in and correct those,” said inside linebacker Roquan Smith, who had a game-high seven tackles. “We didn’t play to our standard, but we got better throughout the game.”
I’m glad Roquan’s not satisfied, though.
And you know what that means — alert the media.
“I’m trying to get our players to listen to me instead of listening to you guys,” Saban said. “All that stuff you write about how good we are. All that stuff they hear on ESPN. It’s like poison.
“It’s like taking poison.
“Like rat poison.”
Let’s hear Herbstreit respond to that.
