Wait, when did that happen?

Okay, I can’t help bringing this up, but considering the bitching going on after the LSU loss, it sure is funny to see Jake Fromm third nationally in passer rating and Jim Chaney’s offense third in offensive yards per play.

    Looks like LSU’s luck ran out. What goes around comes around.

      Exactly and couldn’t happpen to a better group. Crazy coon ass Cajuns. They deserve any and all shit karma that comes their way. Tailgated with a bunch of them this year and they are absolutely delusional about the status of their university…..and their athletic program. They have no idea of academic standards of other universities. Talk about living in a bubble. Screw them.

        What, they think LSU is Ivy League, or something? Do tell.

        I had fun hanging out with a bunch of (strangers that were) LSU fans watching the Endymion parade when I spent Mardi Gras there in 2007, wearing my UGA gear. They were the some of the nicest, most fun people to be around…ever. They gave me crap in a good way, and laughed when I gave it right back to them. I’ve often projected that experience over the whole fan base and assumed they were all ok. Funny how we do that, good or bad, across entire fan bases.

    I think those two things are probably part of the reason for the bitching. That game was an inexplicably poor performance by Chaney and Fromm.

    Also, and I know this will never happen after the hype all season, I’d give the Heisman to Murray. His ridiculous numbers have been essential to Oklahoma having a shot at the playoff, given that their defense is in some ways even worse than last year. Plus, he has 850 rushing yards in addition to the passing.

    I would think that if Oklahoma wins, then they would be in over OSU since they will have avenged their 1 loss (Plus their loss was close and vs a division champ). I would also think they would love to pit OSU vs us for the history of Urban from UF.

    I agree that our fan base is quick to make sweeping assessments of who can and play or coach based on individual games or seasons rather than larger sample sizes or context. However, it’s not as if Fromm’s or Chaney’s recent runs of success mean the LSU game never happened. I believe Fromm’s accuracy at times – even on plays without duress – is not where it should be in his second season as a starter, but overall he’s obviously played well. Chaney has been outstanding in my mind, particularly given the revolving door and youth on the OL this year. Both wil obviously have to be their better selves against Bama.

    Fromm just had a bad day, they all do. As far as Chaney goes, Fromm just makes him look competent, or better than what he really is….much like Drew Brees did.

      Well I’ve been waiting for Tua to have a bad day. Let’s hope he’s due for it next week.

      Georgia fans unwilling to give Chaney any credit… I just don’t get it.

      Wanna go back to Mark Richt and his OCs? Other than Bobo, Richt had a lot of mediocre offenses. Speaking of that, how’s Miami’s offense?

      How did you like relying on QBs like Mason, Lambert, and Cox? Do you miss having no depth at QB? Do you miss starting Faton Bauta in Jacksonville? Do you miss offensive line woes year after year?

      Get real. The offensive staff, including Chaney, is doing a pretty damn good job.

    LSU was the best thing that could have happened Cheney. Until that game it appeared that he was trying to create a new identity for the offense with a more run/pass balance. Since that game he is running the offense almost exactly as they did last season with the same results. Compared to the games before LSU rushing totals are up, third down efficiency is up, Fromm’s rating is up. .

      I got the impression that they weren’t sure they could pound it the way they did last year, and with the weapons at wide out, they probably wanted to try to get them more involved. Also, Fromm’s efficiency was every bit as good leading up to the LSU game as it’s been since, not counting the 5 for 5 game against UMass.

        Given the uptick in competition since the LSU game, Fromm has been better than before, IMO. His 3rd down play is certainly vastly improved. 11 TDs to 1 INT. I think also that he’s not missing those long balls like he was earlier.

    Fromm has the second highest passer rating in November games alone. Quite a bit better than Tua’s rating for November.

    LSU was a shitshow. Not sure I’d want to dredge it up no matter how great the O did in other games.

    IF YA AINT FIRST YOURE LAST. just kidding, but I do believe that Fromm is very good. He’s kind of like a Diesel engine, don’t rev too high, keep it in the middle and you’ll smile all day. Problem is, everybody wants a v12 spinning at 10,000rpm. I think ruckus has a point, why did LSU have to happen? Do we think our staff will put together the best possible game plan for 12/1? It’s an honest question. Last year was remarkable, this year has been really strange. It’s almost as if there are too many gifted athletes and they all only get ten minutes of game time to show their hands.

    Tua Tagoviala is at the top.
    In that passer ratings list there are 6 QBs in the top 45 the Dawgs’ defense has seen this year.
    And counting the NCG, TT makes it 7.
    How many defenses have seen that many.
    Plus no SEC team had seen TT on the field til this year.
    The Dawgs saw at the very beginning.
    So players and staff have game experience with him.
    In 2 quarters he torched the Dawgs for three TD passes.
    Fromm had 1, but 2 INTs.

      Interesting point, Will. Perhaps the experience of playing against him last year will yield better results than those who hadn’t, yeah. I like it.

    All Fromm has to do is simply play.
    Bad game against the Tide, big deal…most all sports folks thinks he will…after all we are playing the gods of football.
    Just be on time every time…no pressure. Hopefully, Giallard goes the full sets with him. Any other center would be a disaster re timing.

    The bitching after LSU was because the offense wasn’t passing the eye test up to that point and then the LSU game happened and it REALLY didn’t pass the eye test. I think Fromm was looking over his shoulder a bit at JF and seems to me they finally stopped so much of the musical QBs and just let Fromm be the one and he’s flourished. I will eat my crow and say I didn’t think we’d be able to flip a switch and get consistent on offense, but since UF, the O has done just that and looked great, so kudos to the team and players for sorting it out. And so maybe I’m drinking too much koolaid and lurching too far the other way now, but I still think we have a puncher’s chance against Bama. Our D will have to play a bit lights out, but I do think we’ll be able to put up some points on them. I’m just not sure our D will be able to get a stop when it is needed.

      Something struck me looking at those stats….how far Alabama is down the list in rushing yards. If our secondary can limit Bamas receivers, will they be able to run on us?

      That’s my take, too. They have all looked much smoother post-LSU. I think Fromm became convinced he was the man after that game and has played much more free since then. The entire offense has.
