Your 11.21 game day post, dawg eat dog edition

What’s going to happen tonight?  Your guess is as good as mine, but I will say that a 25-point spread seems awfully generous considering that regardless of which quarterback is called on to start, Kirby Smart’s naturally conservative instincts are likely bound to kick in.

No, I don’t expect Georgia to run the ball as much as Mississippi State will pass it, but I will be surprised if we see the total number of pass plays Todd Monken calls much north of twenty.

On the other side of the ball, how will Georgia defend the Air Raid?  My guess, based on last year’s SECCG, is that Smart and Lanning will be more pragmatic than the way Kirby talked in the presser this week and play a lot of three-man line, supplementing the linebackers in pass coverage with six defensive backs.

If Georgia can dodge the turnover problems that have plagued it of late, this should be a comfortable, if boring, win.  We’ll see how it goes.

Have at it in the comments, of course.

Georgia Tech’s return to greatness

Because of the coronavirus, the Jackets have cut the football recruiting budget — you know, the raison d’etre for hiring Waffle House Man — in half.

Between that and running their reserve fund well into the black to transition head coaches, wouldn’t it have made as much sense to let the genius hang around a couple more years?

Weakest analogy of 2020

This one’s cringeworthy, but, considering the source, hardly surprising.

No, Bill, that’s not even in the same zip code as the least you can do.

TFW you’ve got to prove Pac-12 refs aren’t the worst

That’s the worst call I’ve seen this season.  I don’t care about either team, and I’m still pissed about it.

Mike Leach, gourmet

Somebody asked me for a Leach post this week and I knew if I waited long enough, the perfect moment would come.

Finger lickin’ good… sort of.
