The Gus Bus is headed to the junkyard.

Whoa, Nellie.

And to think Bo Nix was just about to turn the corner.


UPDATE:   Double whammy.

Second thoughts from Montana

Stewart Mandel ($$) has a revision he’d like to share.

I’ve mocked the committee’s continued adulation of No. 9 Georgia, but the Dawgs truly did look like a top-10 team in Saturday’s 49-14 rout of No. 25 Missouri. Georgia’s offense is so much more dynamic behind QB JT Daniels, who through three starts is completing 70.4 percent of his passes with six TDs and one INT. WR George Pickens had his best game of the season (five catches, 126 yards, two TDs). It’s too little, too late for the Dawgs this year, but never too early to get hyped for 2021.

Spread the word.

Enemy of the people

The Pirate gets testy at last night’s presser.

TFW you have lots more to say, but won’t in public

Here’s hoping for a little hatin’ ass spurrier, too.

The Dawg porn you need

I almost wept real tears of joy reading this.

“It was coupled together and it’s what we’ve been looking for the last weeks,” Daniels said. “I’d say that was our first real complete game. Mississippi State great throwing, didn’t run it like we wanted to. South Carolina, more of a statement game, we came out trying to run it. Today we threw when the looks said to throw and we ran when the looks said to run.”

Fuck balance for balance sake.  Fuck establishing the run in the face of nine-man boxes because grinding the other team down is the order of the day.  Or because it’s the offense’s responsibility to protect the defense, or some other nonsense.

I don’t ask for much.  Taking what the defense gives you should be the first order of business for any competent offensive coordinator.  It’s taken a long time for y’all to get there, but thank you, Todd Monken.

Best trivia question ever?

What (okay, to be more precise, whom) do these two monuments to stupidity have in common?

There was, of course, one major, catastrophic defensive lapse. ($$) One for the ages, in fact. But it’s unlikely that Grantham ever spent time warning players about the perils of chucking an opponent’s shoe 20 yards after a tackle.

Quite the resume for coaching them up you got there, Todd.

Third and Daniels

Needless to say, third down in next year’s Cocktail Party has the potential to be lit.

Booch is back, baby!

I have no opinion on the hire beyond the usual appreciation for blogging manna, except I’ve got to say this is some impressive shade thrown by Arkansas State:

“Back-to-back nine win seasons”.  These are truly the golden years for Tennessee football.

Nobody likes a sore loser, Dan.

The Gator tears are salty, my friends.

Throw, Marco!

(With apologies to Munson for taking liberties…)

“Florida in a stand-up four, they may or may not blitz, they won’t. Max back. Third down on the 25. In trouble… Complete to the 29, to the 30. Marco Wilson 32, 34. Marco Wilson 36, 38, 39, 40. Throw, Marco! Five, 10, 12, 14, 15. Marco Wilson!  Marco Wilson!  Marco Wilson! … Well, I can’t believe it. 20 yards and Marco really got in a heave there, I broke my chair, I came right through a chair, a metal STEEL chair with about a five inch cushion … Do you know what is gonna happen in Gainesville tonight? And up at Ponte Vedra and Sandestin and all those places where all those Daily Gator people have got those condominiums for four days? MAN, is there gonna be some property destroyed tonight! 37 to 34, Tigers on top! They were gone. I gave up, you did too. They were out of it and gone. Miracle!”

This offseason is gonna be more enjoyable than we thought.
