It’s not too early to start getting your Cocktail Party hate on.

Start with this.

If LSU put up 49, what’s a Georgia offense with two weeks to prep gonna do?

You’ll find this week’s ballot here.

One reminder:  voting cuts off at Monday midnight.  Last week, we had several ballots submitted on Tuesday and I let them pass since it was the first week of voting, but that was a one-off.  Miss the deadline and your vote won’t count.

LSU Chizik’s Coach O:

It’s an attractive job, so I’m sure we’ll see all sorts of names circulate for the next few months.  And Orgeron recruits well enough he can find employment somewhere else if he wants.

Siri, how does QBR work?

Somehow, Will Levis wound up yesterday’s game with a higher QBR (85.4) than Stetson Bennett (75.4).

Woof woof

I saw this live when it happened yesterday, but my favorite part of this White TD run was Mitchell woofin’ at the defender he was blocking as Zeus sped by.

Honestly, he’s lucky he didn’t get a flag for unsportsmanlike conduct.  Which isn’t to say I didn’t enjoy the hell out of it.

Montana ♥️… Monken?

But wait… there’s more ($$)!

We all know No. 1 Georgia’s defense is otherworldly, but its offense is pretty darn good, too. Offensive coordinator Jeff Monken, whose offense averaged 8.9 yards per play in Saturday’s 30-13 rout of No. 11 Kentucky, is a creative play caller, and it’s clear he’s having fun utilizing stud tight end Brock Bowers. The breakout freshman had five catches for 101 yards and two TDs Saturday, and the second TD was particularly nifty. On a play-action, Bowers kept run-blocking for a full two seconds before suddenly releasing and streaking downfield for a wide-open 20-yard catch.

It’s hard keeping your Monkens straight, but at least he’s trying.

This is fine, Gators.

While we’re on the subject of the Toddster, check out this vote of confidence from *** checks notes *** one of his defensive starters ($$):

“We made the adjustments we were given to make,” linebacker Mohamoud Diabate said. “It seemed like they were hitting with a similar scheme, kind of a counter run. We had whoever we had in the box so we had to play it how we played it.”

Now, postgame Zoom calls don’t allow for the kind of one-on-one reporting where players clarify or amplify their responses, but unlike previous occasions when players went out of their way to back Grantham, this felt different.

“I’m confident in my teammates and my teammates’ ability to play hard and be where they’re supposed to be,” Diabate said. “I’m confident in my teammates.”

Asked about what adjustments might’ve helped slow down LSU’s running game, Diabate offered: “Honestly, I don’t know. That’s not my decision to make. I don’t look into those things. I’m like a soldier. When the general tells me where to shoot, I shoot. I don’t really ask too many questions. That’s y’all’s job.”

Somewhere out there, Todd Monken is like

Envy and jealousy, Todd Grantham edition

David Hale brings it again:

… Todd Grantham, a fan favorite in every SEC town but Gainesville, coached a defense that surrendered 321 yards on the ground. Tyrion Davis-Price ran for 287 and three touchdowns by himself, the most ever against a Florida defense, breaking a record held by Herschel Walker. It takes a special kind of awfulness to let someone break a Herschel Walker record by 50 yards.

That’s the funniest thing I’ve ever read about Grantham that didn’t mention third down.

Ballin’

It’s the last play of the game and UT’s Joe Milton, his team down by five, channels his inner Reggie Ball… by running out of bounds instead of throwing the ball.

I don’t know how serious Hendon Hooker’s injury is, but if Milton’s the quarterback when Georgia travels to Knoxville, there’s some serious comedic potential brewing.
