Gracious in (moral) victory

Jeremy Pruitt, for the win:

“Until we start doing that around here, we’re not going to stop. That has to be the expectations. Our kids hurt. They put a lot into it. But Georgia made more plays than we did and probably did a better job coaching than we did. It all starts at the top and goes down. We’ll go back in the film and see what we need to improve.”

As I like to say in these here parts, “probably” is doing a shit ton of work there.  To think that if Kirby had outcoached Pruitt, Georgia might have covered the spread… oh, wait.

On the other hand, perhaps it’s worth wondering if Pruitt’s outcoached anybody to this point.

    After reading some of the comments over on Volnation, I sensed that they were more butt-hurt than screaming for his dismissal. One toothless poster claimed that Kirby was excited because their QB got hurt, not because we scored. Called him ‘classless’. What an idiot.

      A Hillbilly fan calling someone “classless”?

    I was critical of the Pruitt hire from the outset and predicted that he would ultimately fail as HC there, but I will say that I was impressed with UT’s gameplan. The fact that it was a two score game early in the 4th quarter says a lot, as they were severely outmanned and outclassed talent wise.

    Pruitt has an uphill climb for several more years, and I’m curious if they have patience to let him run things or if they ultimately pull the plug and start over yet again.

      Much as I hate all things urnge, I too was impressed with their showing. They did a good job with what they had.

        It is stupid to look past any team on our schedule and to think we have already beaten them while waiting to play the game to see by how much. If we don’t cover, the whiners bitch about the staff, players, etc., before blaming their own expectations. I warned of this before the ND game and this game.

        While I expect us to win handily over our next 3 opponents, it doesn’t mean that I don’t think that any one of them can’t mount an O attack and have good D. With a few breaks for opponents, some games are going to be much closer because teams get progressively better during the season and there could be a loss to any team on our schedule, fuck the stats. For a bunch of fans to admire Munson’s cautions, we act as if he was playing a crying game like some coaches do. Nah, Munson was serious and well deserving to take him seriously while he was cautioning us for each game that eases the pain in defeat.

    This was what I was complaining about the other night, giving them hope. I wanted to squash them so soundly they recognized the inevitable defeat we were going to hand them. Instead, we get another moral victory for the toothless ones.

    Pruitt sounded the same after last year’s game. But this year, none of the final 33 points were scored by Tennessee. They are not closing the gap.

    And he’s sitting on a powder keg.

    At some point UGA has to anticipate most teams are going to show up to play us with great intensity, we seem to get surprised by that. Certainly should have expected that from ND and TN, need to be ready to put that fire out on the 1st Qtr.
    What we learned Saturday was that TN may not have the talent to beat UGA in a 4 quarter game, but they do have enough talent to have beaten Ga State, BYU, and made Florida a more competitive game. That is on the coaches, whether they chose the best personnel, had a better plan, or motivated their players, the coaches have to carry much of this responsibility. I think that is why the fan base has a right to be angry, and demanding some accountability. Tip of the cap to the Vol players for their effort, but Saturday showed they have athletes, even if not enough of them for what UGA brought to the table.
