Question of the day

It’s a simple one.  As a Georgia fan, what’s the worst month of football you’ve experienced?

For me — and I don’t think it’s recency bias — it’s got to be October, 2015.

Even the one win in that dreary stretch was marked by incredibly poor football play (by both teams).  And the rest?  Ugh.  At least there was a bye week.

How ’bout you?  Got something worse to share with the class?  Go on, get it out of your system.  It’ll be cathartic.

    • Getting your @$$ kicked by Spurrier in his first year in Hogtown (and realizing there’s a new sheriff in town), by Auburn, by Fech at home, and in my only visit to Clempson … there has been no stretch of football from the beginning of October to the end of the season worse in my lifetime.

      We sucked. The emptying cupboard of Coach Dooley and Jan Kemp was finally bare (Dooley got out while the getting was good). Goff looked absolutely clueless and really was never off the hot seat after 1990. It was embarrassing. We were lucky we didn’t finish 1-10.

            And Southern Miss should have beaten us too. Favre seemed to throw for a thousand miles, but it was a low scoring game. He drove them down for the game winning field goal, but they had a straight on kicker that hit the goalpost flush about halfway up as time expired. You could actually hear the clang because the whole stadium was holding its collective breath.

The Handbags are crowing about how badly they were going to beat us. The guy said to us, “I’ll shut them up.” He went in his van and popped Munson’s call of “Run, Lindsay!” and turned it up to 11. Every Handbag in earshot went quiet. One of them walked over after the guy went back to his music at a normal volume and just said, “Can’t you guys let us have fun one time?” and walked away.

          The year before was when the two top qbs for UF were suspended for sports gambling the week of the game. In an ironic twist it is my understanding that those bets were placed with students at UGA.

          Anyway, some florida fans parked next to us and were engaged with a portion of my party discussing who UF would start at QB.

          Once the identity was established, Donald Douglas as I recall, I asked whether they thought he had a bet on the outcome of the game.

          Sadly, these UF fans chose to end their interaction with us at that point in time.

    Even though I lived through the Goff years, which had some terrible months, I’ll have to agree with your choice Senator. The Failed Faton experiment with Florida made that the worst month ever to me. Even if the loss to Bama had not been so embarrasing, the loss to the Gators would have been enough.

    • Go Dawgs!

      It was made worse by the fact that I was certain the night before the game sitting at my friend’s house on St. Simon’s, we all knew that we were going to get our asses kicked as soon as we heard about the Faton Bauta move. Was there a possibility that things would be different and he could move the offense with his legs? Sure. But by the second drive when we saw that Bauta was just running the exact same offense it was clear it was going to be a bad day, and I think we all knew at that point Richt was done at Georgia and that made it feel even worse. I really loved Richt and wanted to see him win titles at Georgia. Obviously, I’m happy now with the way it all worked out, but yeah… that month was truly awful.

    I was ready to move on but felt the handling of Rick’s firing was absolutely abysmal. So I really wonder if a more graceful exit would have helped the transition or if the same people would have been just as upset. Because that 4 game stretch that you posted along with trying to lose to Missouri in a field goal off was absolutely horrible for me. Like I’m done with this team and football horrible.

          No one, Walker included, had a better 3.5 quarters as a UGA RB than Edwards had from the second half of the USC game until he went out at UT. The guy could not be tackled or caught.

          He had 7 TDs over that time which was about a TD every 4 times he touched it and averaged over 12 yards a touch. Never seen anything like it and then it was over.

For me, at the time, it was especially the shock of it. I was in my teens and seeing my Dawgs emblazoned in my existence as super RBU, winning a title, always competing, etc. decimated to what we saw under Goff was simply…shocking…every…month. October 2015 is a close second, followed by the last month of 2015. I could not believe that Richt’s vaunted offenses and creative offenses had fallen so much. Blame whoever – Richt, Schottt, etc. – it seemed like one day Murray was leading us to massive 40 point games during a few year stretch, etc. and then….what was the Missouri game. When did we need a grad transfer as QB? Where was the adjustments? Dude, where’s my football team. The UF game even more baffling.

    • Mark, Ray inherited a program that was falling into disrepair. The Kemp effect and Dooley’s recruiting at the end of his career hollowed out the talent level of the program. 1990 was the result of that. One thing, Goff did was upgrade recruiting by convincing Hearst, Hastings & Zeier to come to Athens leading to the reasonably successful seasons of ’91-’92. He couldn’t maintain it, and then injuries decimated his “significant improvement” team in ’95.

      I actually thought 2009 was Richts best coaching job. That team had inferior talent (with the exception of AJGreen) and had an awful start. A lot of teams would have folded and finished the year with a losing record. But CMR and the staff held that team together and ended up beating ranked teams down the stretch to pull out an 8-5 record. That was the year of the phantom celebration call against AJ that opened the door to a comeback by LSU in the last 2 minutes to steal the game. Marc Curles (GT grad) was the ref who called the penalty at least 30 seconds after the TD was scored without ever throwing a flag. I’ve always thought that game was fixed. Still do.Curles and his crew were suspended for a game after more shenanigans in favor or FU the following week.

    I’ve been going to sporting events, and writing about sporting events, and thinking about sporting events, for almost 40 years now, and Saturday, midway through the third quarter of Georgia’s nightmarish 38-10 home loss to Alabama, I was a part of something I’ve never experienced before. After Crimson Tide quarterback Jake Coker ran it in from two yards out to give Alabama a 38-3 lead with 10:05 left in the third quarter, at least 50,000 people — more than half Sanford Stadium’s capacity — stood up and left. Together. At once. I had seen people leave games early. I had seen crowds of people leave games early. But I have never once seen roughly the population of Hot Springs, Ark., or Williamsport, Pa., all rise up, as if directed by some invisible collective remote control, heads folded downward, and silently head for the exits. Everyone decided, right as Coker crossed the goal line, that they could not watch this anymore. No one had to say a word. We all just walked out right then, like someone had just set a sacred religious amulet aflame at midfield and we just couldn’t bear to look at it anymore. I suppose that’s exactly what happened.

    Senator, I must agree. That “dreary stretch” precipitated a span of pessimism that wasn’t fully relieved until the Rose Bowl victory. After CMR was fired for cause I envisioned the Dawgs going down the same road as those Hee Haw refugees in trash orange. With the exception of some O issues it’s been mostly a fun trip since Kirby’s second season.

    September of 1993, mainly because it was massively huge let down after the 1992 campaign, and because I was a Redcoat through all of it. Honestly I’d say the entirety of 1993 for me. Only highlights (if you can call it that) was the rainy WLOCP where we thought we had come within one but Spurrier had called a timeout and then the massive brawl near the end of the Tech game.

    The 2015 season has to be the most unsatisfying 10–win campaign in the history of college football. Other than helping to send Spurrier to a mid-season retirement, nothing about that season was fun.

  30. Senator, how can you leave out the month that launched the blog? The month that launched a thousand posts, or whatever.

    I am going with the opening of the 1996 season under Donnan. I still remember the feeling I had when the team ran onto the field for the first game with some cheesy entrance and those horrid black stripes on the helmets. The crowd sat there in almost near silence thinking, “what in the hell is this?” Then, we were treated to a loss to Southern Miss to begin the Donnan era.

    That season actually had a pretty good ending with the thrilling four OT win against Auburn and beating Tech but, watching the struggle to beat Texas Tech and losing to South Carolina followed by losing again to the Vols gave little hope for the rest of the season. I think we squeezed in a win over Miss. State in there but still, we looked terrible. I’m not just talking about those awful black stripes Donnan added to the uniform either.

        That was awful. Donnan running double reverses and shit.

        He ran so many plays that took forever to develop that game.

        What was he thinking?!?! Marshall must have played extremely slow football players for those things to even be in his playbook.

        Eventually I really liked Donnan’s multiple offense. Not getting a DC soon enough and going all in on Quincy sunk him.

        Who knows what happens with Greene at Qb if Donnan doesn’t decide to go off on the call in show caller before he ever took a snap?

    Maybe a close second to that 2010 stretch if I hadn’t just moved to Champaign, but staring at the TV in the bar there while no one was surprised but me, surrounded by Big Ten folks, was awful.

    Doesn’t compare to 2015 1-3, but September of 08 coming in with the #1 ranking only to slowly drop with a few lackluster wins and finally getting our dreams dashed by Bama at home with Saban’s first statement win at Bama wasn’t great.
