Smothered and covered at Mark Richt Field.

Dawgs set a record for points scored and Tech sets one for most punts. Seems like a fair trade.

COFH game day post

If you’re a Nervous Nellie whose mantra today is “but South Carolina”, consider this:

Scoring Offense (ppg)

  • South Carolina:  24.2 (99th)
  • Georgia Tech:  17.5 (122nd)

Scoring Defense (ppg)

  • South Carolina:  25.0 (50th)
  • Georgia Tech:  30.6 (87th)

Yards per play (offense)

  • South Carolina:  5.30 (96th)
  • Georgia Tech:  5.00 (112th)

Yards per play (defense)

  • South Carolina:  5.44 (53rd)
  • Georgia Tech:  5.73 (72nd)

You tell me — is going +4 in turnover margin today gonna do it for the Jackets?

It feels like a Manball kind of day.  Let’s just hope nobody else wearing red and black gets hurt.

Have at it in the comments, peeps.

A rivalry game apology

Elijah Moore, Matt Luke and Ole Miss athletic director Keith Carter all managed the obligatory apology after Moore’s on field display of doggy-style urination helped cause the Rebels to blow a shot at taking the Egg Bowl to overtime.

Keeping in the spirit of the moment, though, the apologies were only extended to Moore’s teammates, coaches and Ole Miss fans — not to Mississippi State.  Some bridges are too far, you know.

All bad things must come to an end.

I had a lot of folks reach out yesterday after Virginia finally ended a fifteen-year (!) losing streak to its hated in-state rival, which was damned nice, considering.  Some asked me how the win felt in comparison to Georgia winning.

All I can tell you is I felt the same way watching this play unfold…

… as I did seeing Robert Edwards’ clinching touchdown run against Florida in 1997.

Matt Hinton put it well yesterday.

It’s not that you wouldn’t trade years of losing for something better.  Of course you would.  But there is something about being in the moment when your team finally overcomes that heavy weight of futility that is worth cherishing.

Sports are great sometimes, yeah?

These are the glory years.



Somewhere, Jimmy Sexton smiles knowingly.

It’s ovah.

Lawrence Cager, gone.

It’s a shame he got to a place he wanted to be, shone and then had it all come to a halt.  Best of luck on recovery, man.

The opposite of the Georgia Way

They’re selling alcohol at Texas A&M’s Kyle Field now.  They made good money doing so and fan incidents didn’t rise as a result.  None of which should be a surprise, given the experience at other venues making the same decision.

This, however, is an alien concept in Athens, Georgia:

“The person who sits in the upper deck, the top row, now has the same sort of amenity as the person who has the private suite,” said athletic director Ross Bjork.

Can somebody please help Greg McGarity?  I can hear his coughing spell all the way down here in Atlanta.  Get him a glass of water or something.

TFW you say, “oh, shit, they comin'”

The ending wasn’t the only moment of mirth for Elijah Moore in last night’s Egg Bowl.  This move cracked me up, too.

Hell, it was worth a shot.


UPDATE:  By the way, speaking of Moore, I had forgotten this.

August 15, 2017: Commitment
Elijah Moore commits to Georgia Bulldogs

I cannot even begin to imagine what Smart’s wrath would be like had Moore become a Dawg and cost Georgia a game the way he did last night.

It’s gonna be some offseason in Oxford.

I see the football gods were in Starkville, Mississippi last night.

Jon Solomon is calling that the “Piss and Miss”, which ain’t bad, but, really, the jokes are gonna write themselves for a while.

I just hope somebody asks that kid if it was worth it and, after pondering the question for a moment, he answers, “totally”.  Might as well own it at this point.

Egg Bowl

Hey, it’s the only game in town tonight, so what else do we have to talk about?

One thing, and I don’t know if it’s a canary in the coal mine kind of deal or not, but tickets for one of the most bitter rivalries in the country can be found for as little as ten bucks.  Kinda sad.

As far as the bitterness goes, check this out.

Anyways, I’m leaning towards the upset on this one (MSU is a 3.5-point home favorite).  What about y’all?  Have at it in the comments, if you’re not too stuffed already.
