Talking behind their backs

I keep saying it, but Athlon’s lost a few miles off its anonymous opposing coaches’ fastball since Tuberville left the SEC.  This is all the cattiness they can muster about this year’s Georgia team:

“They’re consistent, they’re talented, but they’re still figuring out how to be elite. Defensively they don’t throw as much at you as Alabama. I think a Georgia defense is more about making decisions and executing than throwing a lot of scheme at you, and they make great decisions.

“They have great edge play, guys who are true game-wreckers. Even more than Bama, you find yourself having to address their front and making concessions. In terms of pure physical talent, you’re always having to bring a back or a tight end in, you end up doing things to move away from what you want. They’re great at taking away what an OC wants to do the most.”

“Offensively they’re sort of adrift. What are they trying to do? Last year it was really muddy, and I think a lot of that had to do with betting on Jamie Newman, losing him, and then adjusting to JT Daniels in-season.”

“I think it’s fair to say they know they need to evolve, but they haven’t found the right way to do it. Having consistency and a returning QB is a good start, but they can’t get too conservative.”

“This is a roster better than anyone in the country except for Bama and maybe Clemson. They’re turning over most of their secondary and will probably be fine. They just have to embrace the future with their offense and they could win it all.”

I can read nastier shit than that on a Gator message board.  Hell, there have been times I can read worse than that here.

    That’s complimentary. Not Dooley superlative but slightly complimentary.

    Those anons did a good job of not poking the bear, not much to put on the bulletin board.

      That response was from Coach Vanilla, very straight forward, nothing to hide, just a very plain forth right view of UGA football…

      I don’t know, this is pretty rough: “Having consistency and a returning QB is a good start, but they can’t get too conservative.”. 😁

    Hmm, nobody said “CKS just doesn’t get it”.

    The only real problem with that assessment is the comparison to Bama. The Dawgs roster is equal or better. I eagerly await the opportunity to put four quality quarters together against those privileged bitches.

    Was Dan Lanning the anonymous source ?

    What will the talking heads talk about if we average 45 – 50 points a game?

      Well Spur, those syphilitic parasitics (thanks John Prine RIP) will be bagging on the Dawgs impending quarterback controversy and how they’ll never replace the loss of talent on both sides of the ball. Rampant speculation on when and where Monken and Lanning will land when they leave for greener pastures will be overshadowed only by the premise that Kirby is too bullheaded to retain decent coordinators. Some detractors will howl that KIrby can’t develop QBs and only won because of Daniels transferring in and he can’t possibly win consecutive National Championships with his 5 star QBs from podunk schools.
      Other former carpers will have their nose so far up Kirby’s ass they could tell you what he had for breakfast.
      They’ll never shut the fuck up, that’s for sure.

        Well they can say and do whatever the fuck they want – I’m good. Picked my first quart of blueberries today – another bumper crop. We still have blueberries in the freezer from last year.

          Outstanding! Blueberries are my wife’s thang along with mulberries which were three weeks later ripening than last year. Big, sweet mulberries from a volunteer tree. Also have some wild blueberry bushes on the edge of the woods. I need to research on how to make those productive.
          You know from experience, as well as others here, that no matter how successful a man becomes he will always have detractors.
          Piss on ’em.

      How bad opposing Defense was!


  8. Hopefully this is Monken’s coming out party. Sure he’s got plenty of weapons, but finding a rhythm and keeping opposing DC’s on their heals is what I’d like to see. I hope we don’t distribute touches just to keep feelings from being hurt. Get the ball in the hands of the guys who are consistent and let that OL find an identity to impose their will.

    Been gone a week. Visiting the grandson was great, but I kind of hate that I missed all the happenings this week. How can you not be excited if you’re a Dawg fan? Anon coaches have better sense than to poke too big of a stick in the Dawg House.


  10. Gotta be…..Eli Drinkwitz maybe? Maybe Stoops?
