Envy and jealousy, a synopsis of the 2021 season edition

It’s David Hale time again, y’all, and it just takes three sentences.

A quick rundown of what we knew with some degree of certainty entering Saturday’s festivities:

Georgia is good.

Texas is not good.

Dan Mullen lost a fiddle battle with the devil, and now Florida will roast in the depths of hell for all eternity.

Nothing changed afterwards, either.

    I was just hoping that sideline reporter would ask Bill Murray if he’d run into the Dalai Lama on his tour of the Army campus.

    Guys, I know this is off-topic but I saw something yesterday that really concerns me. When JT got into the game yesterday his body language showed some telling things: He had the look of someone who didn’t care if he was there or not. It looked like he was just going through the motions. He was “not” jazzed up about playing. Maybe I’m wrong, but after this season he may be gone and that’s concerning because other than Stetson(who may leave also) we do not have a QB experienced enough to take us through the season. Also, we will “Not” beat Bama playing manball with Stetson. We need JT’s arm to win that game and beyond. I love what Stetson has done but if we get into a shootout with Bama and/or Ohio St we need JT with the right mindset. Something is going on and it needs to get fixed fast. Did anyone else notice this and am I right or wrong. Your thoughts please.


    • I hate to break it to you, but if you’re going on body language yesterday as a measure, UGA will be playing mostly third stringers and walk-ons in the SECCG.

      They played a sub-.500 FCS team that couldn’t score in the fourth quarter when Kirby cleared the decks.

      Take a deep breath and get focused on what matters today: Hate Week has officially started.

        I understand what you’re saying but it just shocked me that he didn’t seem to have any enthusiasm.

          We are having the season of our lifetimes and you are having “concerns” about next year based on body language. Where do we find these people?

        They did run some really interesting plays, though.


      • Also, while I do think JT is better and we are a better team with JT, none of it matters. Team chemistry is a fragile thing and perhaps the team (and coaches) really feel like Stetson earned this being “his team.”


        This is our fucking year.

        Nobody is stopping us no matter who we put back there at QB.

        Kirby knows what he is doing and so does Monken.


    • I didn’t see that. I saw a JT that had absolute zip on his passes and excellent decision making.

    • He seemed like normal JT to me.

    Do yourself a favor and scroll to the end of the article and watch the interview with Bill Murray on the sideline of the Army-UMass game.

  7. I would love a retrospective on the dumbest questions from CKS pressers this season. “Does Georgia run Counters” was great… I mean, it’s so incredibly dumb, I have to hope that it was tongue-in-cheek, a moment where the nerdy writer guy hoped he could have a moment of camaraderie with the burgeoning legendary head coach of the Georgia Bulldogs, but just came off sounding like a total asshat. But I think he’s just a total asshat.

    Then yesterday, some typewriter genius asked CKS if he was worried when Stetson’s pass got tipped and picked.


    On what frikkin planet does the Coach of THIS team worry when a team the likes of CS makes a decent play on the first drive?

    I laughed. First at the play, and then a few hours later at the question.

    When something like that happens in a game like that, you just gotta look across the field, raise your glass and say “well done, little guy.”

    Worried. Pfffft.

    Love Hale but there’s no way anOSU’s thumping of Sparty proves that the Buckeyes are legit. Sparty is not good. Michigan is sorta good. anOSU is pretty good but the Dawgs’ front seven will eat Stroud alive if UGA meets anOSU in the playoff. Also: a massacre of the gnats means that Notre Dame is just hitting its stride? Give me a break. Agree with his remarks on mustaches, though.


    • Ohio State surrenders an average of 1 sack per game, and gains an average of 197 ypg on the ground.

      Their OL play is comparable to UGA’s in that regard. Not to say our DLine won’t have success against them, but thinking that we get to just show up and scare Stroud is folly.

        Not the first time I’ve been called a fool. My dumb brain tells me that anOSU hasn’t faced a front 7 worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as the Dawgs’. I look forward to watching anOSU-Michigan. The Wolverines have two of the Big 10’s three leaders in sacks (28 sacks as a team) and they’re holding opponents to 3.66 yards per rushing attempt. The Dawgs hold opponents to 2.45 YPA and have 39.5 sacks. If anOSU struggles at all to run the ball and block Michigan’s front seven, they’ll be doomed in a matchup against UGA. Doomed, I tells ya.


  10. We were blessed to have David Hale as our beat writer.

    My favorite part of the article:

    “Pac-12 can enjoy a stress-free Thanksgiving without worrying about any playoff implications. It’s an annual tradition right there with mom’s cranberry sauce and the Lions doing something embarrassing.”
