Head vs. heart in Baton Rouge

Yeah, this is one of those games.  As the advanced stats show, Georgia is the better team today.  My head looks at the numbers, considers how ridiculously fast and athletic this team has shown itself to be all season long, remembers that Georgia took control of its last game and rested its starters for a quarter while LSU was involved in a slug fest against Florida and concludes that the Dawgs cover.

My heart, though.  It’s a conference road game, in one of the toughest venues in the country.  It’s probably LSU’s season at this point, at least in terms of maintaining the one-punch hope of overtaking Alabama somehow in the West.  It’s also against the most talented team Georgia has faced to date.  All that adds up to making my inner Munson quite nervous.

I figure both teams are going to try to do what everyone expects of them:  establish the run on offense and stop the run on defense.  Strangely enough — I say that in the sense that it still takes some getting used to — it’s Georgia that has the advantage in the trenches.  If the Dawgs are more successful on both fronts, it will be a long day for the home team.

I haven’t been overly impressed with Joe Burrow, but up until last weekend, he certainly hasn’t been a liability for LSU.  His receivers haven’t given him the best support, a trend that I would welcome continuing against the Dawgs, but he’s got the ability to do some damage with a little tuck and running.  Contain hasn’t always been a strength for Georgia’s defense, so, yeah, that’s one area of concern.

That being said, Georgia has been a far more explosive offense this season.  That, combined with the defense’s proven ability to play bend but not break ball, is what has me thinking it’ll wind up being Georgia’s day.  (My usual caveat about turnovers applies, of course.)

I’m heading out the door for Baton Rouge soon.  Consider this the usual invite for your game day observations in the comments section.

  1. The pundits are making this feel like, “But, but, but Georgia has never played in Tiger Stadium.” I haven’t seen a single prediction for LSU that goes deeper than that.

    Sort of feels like “Sandstorm.”

    I’ll take the Jimmies and Joes with the better coaching staff over any mystique associated with Death Valley.

    Dawgs cover in a game that’s not as close as the final score indicates.

        That is a good description of his posture, nicely done. If this were just a chess match between the two coaches matching wits, it would undoubtedly be a blowout for UGA. But they are closer in the matchup when it comes to inspiring their young men, and O has an edge today because he has a recent example of how they let one get away. So, that is our first “we will get their best shot” of the day. How will we react to getting smacked in the mouth? Don’t know yet, we haven’t been in a street brawl so far this year. A lot depends on our team leaders, imo.

    I agree with all, we have the better team so we should prevail against a “desperate to save their season” group of good athletes in the toughest environment in the SEC. But, we were almost certain to drop 1-2 games this year simply because that is what happens to teams to young teams that haven’t looked like they are hitting on all eight cylinders, so this looks like the one to me where the Dawgs are most likely to stub their toe. Either here, or in Lexington, hopefully not both.

    Doesn’t mean today couldn’t be that “ND moment” for this 2018 team where they scrap and claw enough to win a close one, and gain the confidence to leap forward. Also, doesn’t rule out that we finally play our first A game for the full 60 minutes and win decisively. Not waffling, just saying this game could be many things so I am staying with what I have seen and say this is closer to a 50/50 outcome. Rationale iswe have shown flaws that indicate we have weaknesses that against an opponent built like they are, in a situation like this, says we could drop a game we probably shouldn’t. So I am being like I am from Mizzou, show me guys.

    If you want to get nervous, consider that Alabama has taken 7 in a row from LSU, some comfortably. But, almost every single game in Baton Rouge has gone down to the wire. Alabama having to come from behind more than once. It’s a tough place to play. I think we win this game, but I’m a long way from believing we walk the dog in New Orleans.

Need to take that crowd and the adrenaline rush for the players out early or prepare for 15 rounds. Willy Brice wasn’t intimidating, this place is. We can overcome it, but not with the focus I have seen so far.

    Kirby tries his “impose our will” bullshit against LSU and it doesn’t go well. We struggle and trail by 7 at half. The “in game” UGA comment threads are in full melt down mode and some are predicting UGA will drop football next week. Second half Kirby unleashes Fromm and UGA’s devastating passing game. By the end of the third quarter the game is well in hand and we win going away. A sausage and beignet gorged Orgeron has a massive MI on the sideline and Kirby has to save his life by running across the field and given him mouth to mouth. We’re all so proud to be GA Bulldogs.

    That’s my prediction and I’m sticking to it.

      Absolutely a miserable half of attempted football.
      Dropped passes, missed open receivers, bad snap from center, horrible ball spotting by the refs..A plain and simply stupid faked fg..an over hyped QB, punts kicked out of bounds on a regular basis, blown pass coverage and so forth and so on
      There’s no where to go but up..If we don’t score 8 on the first possession of the second half, I’m ready to concede this one (really, I’m already resigned to the fact that this is 95% already a “L”).
      I just hope we make UF pay dearly in two weeks.
      Not mad at the team. I know they are trying and it’s just snowballed on them..but I DO think the snowball started rolling on the faked FG attempt.
      I told the others that was the early turning point in a game in a place where you just can’t do that shit.

We have regressed through the year. Fromm has regressed mightily from last year. There’s a problem here and although I want to see Fields in the game, he can’t solve it by himself.

        We’ve also dropped some interceptions. Our “skill” players have had a bad day. Fromm missed some sure TD passes. Punter can’t keep the ball in bounds.
        Today, the Georgia Bulldogs didn’t get off the bus. Simple as that.

    I would like to take a look at Fromm’s bank account to see if there have been any large deposits lately. Is LSU’s coverage that good? Nobody open?

      Holyfield veraging 8 yards per carry, yet touches ball only 7 times!!! Swift is getting 7 yards per carry. LSU could not stop the run but Chaney abandoned it early in the game.

        This. That series after Mecole’s punt return was icing on the cake for a game that our coaches lost for us. Holyfield running all over them and we didn’t even give him a carry. I could go on and on but seriously what’s the point. We should have at least been in the game at the end but the cute play calling and mental mistakes did us in.

    11/27 for 126. No TDs. 1 INT. Somebody explain to me why we didn’t run more? It’s not as if Fromm had a great 1st Q. He was terrible from the jump. Run game was our chance to stay in it, so of course we threw it 27 times.

      I’m surprised that Fromm turned in such a horrendous performance. Aren’t you? Taking a sack on 3rd and 6, from the LSU 40-something yard line, was the cherry on top.

    Hate to be ‘that guy’, but I said earlier this week that ILB Taylor can’t tackle.

    And the record setting pace of substitutions has proved to be a liability yet again. Holyfield ran for 25 yards & a TD in 2 plays, so of course we didn’t see him in the following possession.

      Someone said it in another thread. The coaches need to decide who is first string and who is second string, etc. Then they need to play them accordingly. If Herschel Walker were on this team would he only be getting 7-8 carries? How is a RB supposed to get in rhythm? Holyfield was running like Herschel at the beginning and they pulled him out of the game!! Morons!

    Just a terrible day.. I would give a small fortune to meet LSU in the SECCG like we did Auburn last year. I honestly think that LSU got every break and that if we played them in ATL we’d beat them soundly. We’ll probably never know. We did get out coached in spades.
    Let’s all cheer up.. Georgia is much better than they showed today and will be a better team now..this may be the spring board to beating the rest of the schedule as expected.
    We’ve still got a chance at a super season and I think we’ll see it.

    We are a top 25 team. That’s it. It’s amazing how Mullen can come in with the crappy season they had last year and be better than us already. CKS is a recruiter. He won with a great team last year. He’s got a lot to prove in my opinion Count me not impressed with this coaching staff. But more than anything, Fromm lost this game today. He flat out sucked. And the fact that CKS refused to acknowledge Fromm needed to sit today is the most concerning thing of all.

    Every time Holyfield touched the ball, it was like he was Mike Tyson and the LSU defense was his dad’s ear. I don’t, for the life of me, understand the UGA offensive game plan today. Perhaps Holyfield and Swift need to go to Smart like Chubb and Michel?
