Texas ran this with success all night, it seemed.

UT played with that attitude all night.

Some people have way to much free time.
Tim Worley, a great former Dawg, wrote an incredible article in response to our Sugar Bowl performance. It can be found on Dawgbone. Look for “UGAwire: UGA Football Legend Pens Frustration with Team’s Sugar Bowl Performance, Leadership.” It’s an awesome read.
Yeah I’d like to second that recommendation. Worley’s letter points to something that struck me about DeAndre Baker’s presence on the Georgia sideline. What exactly is the point of him being there??? I know he got the blessings of his team before making his decision, came back for his senior year and has been a great leader for the team all season…but he shouldn’t have been on the sideline. That’s a violation of TEAM me. Going to New Orleans and having the experience, along with all that swag, hey, he earned that as much as the next guy. But have him up in the stands with family, not around team meetings/practices for the game. And if possible have him make the decision to sit out before bowl practices start up back on campus, so the team can get other players reps.
It was a great article. He doesn’t mind wearing the ‘old school’ badge proudly. Worley talks about his blood, sweat and tears with his teammates during his playing days, the lack of respect for coaches nowadays, and how he, knowing that he was declaring for the draft in 1989, did not sit out the Gator Bowl….nor did opponent’s top players in that Bowl game….Tony Mandarich or Andre Rison of Michigan State.
Also Worley’s letter touches on the more casual call-me-Kirby approach taken by Coach Smart, which was his choosing upon taking the job. But is it the right one? (Gawd I love me some discontented off season armchair analysis!!!) Senator, you better rest up because for the next eight months we’ll all be trying to figure stuff out, like who is Kirby Smart and what is doing with OUR football team. The last of Richt’s choirboys have cycled out of the program, it’s now completely Coach Just-Call-Me-Kirby’s ship. And ?’s have to be asked to the larger point, just what sort of culture does Kirby want to create? Nick’s process? Well that’s more methodology for preparation and development. But who are we going to be? Quiet with a big stick, like BAMA or a big showy Pizza Party like Clemson??? I’m a Dawg having an identity crisis. This is the jumping off part I’m having a hard time with.
“Nothing someone says before the word “But” really counts.”
I hope this shit sandwich of a Sugar Bowl tastes nasty the entire off season to Coach Smart, his staff, and the team. They did throw their suckers in the dirt. Worley’s right. Compete. Every game. No exceptions. Ever. Worley’s right again.
http://www.dawgbone.net/huckaby.html He clocks my sentiments pretty well.
What a lovely name for a play. Sounds like Herman and Zach Smith might have some things in common. Not the type of look I would want the world to see.
People keep telling me the coaches weren’t to blame.
I wish the broadcast crew knew about that and referred to it every time SE ran up the gut against us instead of the nauseating Tebow references.
SJ3’s omen aside, I knew we were in trouble when I saw the size of the Texas O-line and receivers. Them was some big ol’ boys.
