“We have thought about it a lot.”

If you think Georgia might have a hard time finding motivation to play Vanderbilt with a huge trip to Baton Rouge on the horizon, think again.  The embarrassing loss in that 2016 game stuck harder in the players’ craws than it did ours.  Just ask Elijah Holyfield.

“I think it sticks with people who were here a lot, because that game was one of the games that really, really cut us deep.” 

Hey, whatever works.

  2. If memory serves, half the commenters here wanted to fire Kirby for that Vandy loss. Those were some fun days here at GTP (sarcasm font).

      Don’t think anyone wanted Kirby fired at that point, but there was some stronger feelings about Chaney, and still are. The weakest of Kirby’s hires, imo.

        Not to be contrarian, Mac, but just for funsies I checked out a post here titled “My advice is to start drinking heavily” Posted 10/16/16@3:36 pm.
        248 comments. There were more than a few that wanted Kirby fired.

          I was full on with the “Boom 2.0”. Glad Kirby got so much smarter in his second year.

            I got shades of Boom 2.0, and frankly still do at times. Thankfully, he’s a better program builder, recruiter, and player’s coach than Boom. And maybe this is damning with faint praise, but Chaney > Roper. UGA’s RBs, OL and blocking WRs/TEs have mostly had success in imposing Kirby’s will, even against 8-9 man fronts a majority of the time.

            Most of my ire in 2016 was reserved for Beamer.

          Thanks Cowdog. I remembered some on the ledge guys, just didn’t recall a lot. Shouldn’t be surprised, especially after reading some comments made during games that I read later at night. Just like nothing good happens after midnight, comments made during games will also bite you. perspective ladies and gentlemen, perspective. Step back, take a deep breath before typing.

  3. I was at that game. Watching McKenzie run at me with Chubb blocking on the 4th and 1. I had to look again when the play ended. Did I really see that?

    That walk back sucked. I was pissed for 3 days.

    Whoa, a flashback to a deja-vu, definition of insanity moment. Ran it twice, I believe he did, and #41 killed it graveyard dead.
    How many of us thought we’d be playing for the Natty the next season?

    That was then. This is now.
    I think if it comes down to a fourth and one, I’d give the ball to Mr. H, though.

    What we lost was crazy. Chubb has set an NFL record as no back has ever had over 100 yards in just 3 carries. Yet Cleveland is going to Cleveland and not play him full time. Sony was his Jazzy self at NE this week.
