Sounds like Corch took yesterday’s ass kicking in stride.
Category Archives: Urban Meyer Points and Stares
Oklahoma whips Ohio State’s ass and this ensues afterwards.
One can only imagine the steam coming out of Urban Meyer’s ears. Which is what probably led to this.
Damn, Baker, fun means never having to say you’re sorry. Although this is a subtle touch.
Eh, kid, Corch could teach you a thing or two about what constitutes a big deal.
As always, though, gallows humor is the best humor.
In fact, blaming players makes Corch so insane, he blames Boom for something Boom never said.
Meyer also said Muschamp “blamed us for Florida,” referring to a perceived lack of talent left for Muschamp when Meyer departed before the 2011 season…
It’s not clear if Muschamp ever directly suggested the cupboard was bare when he took over for Meyer. However, at the time of his Florida firing in 2014, Muschamp told CBS Sports, “[We] changed the culture of the program that was labeled by the previous head coach [Meyer] as ‘broken.’ He said it. I didn’t.”
We all know what “culture” references to Meyer’s stint at Florida mean and they’ve got nothing to do with talent, other than that the talent was the excuse for the culture. Which means someone’s full of shit here, and it ain’t Boom.
How big a jerk do you have to be to get me to defend Will Muschamp?
I can feel a whole new book of grievances coming on.
… Swinney said he doesn’t watch many Big Ten games during the season but felt the conference was overrated after watching Ohio State in preparation for the bowl game.
“Go back to last year. We’re trying to figure out a way to put four Big Ten teams in the playoff,” Swinney said. “And I didn’t pay no attention to the Big Ten. You just kind of buy it (the Big Ten hype), right? That’s just what’s out there. And then we get ready to play Ohio State and I start watching the tape, I watch every single game and I go in and tell our guys, I’m like, ‘Boys, these guys are in trouble.’ I mean, I’ve watched the whole league, I’ve gone through the whole league both sides, these guys are in trouble. And that’s exactly what happened.”
Next time your teams meet, Dabo, I’d keep an eye on how many timeouts Meyer keeps in his pocket in the second half. Just sayin’.
Without a doubt, in my lifetime as a college football fan (as opposed to a Georgia football fan), there’s no season I have enjoyed more than the 2007 one. It was absolutely and unpredictably nuts from start to finish, with plenty of stops along the way.
So, it is with great pleasure that I share with you SBNation’s tribute to that season. Check out the following pieces in particular:
- Bill Connelly, on CFB’s 11 wildest seasons (2007 being #1)
- ULM 21, Alabama 14
- Les Miles, ladies and gentlemen
- How would a four-team college playoff have looked?
- The Celebration, and Corch’s “stunning pettiness“
- Steve Spurrier reminisces about 16-12, and Georgia in general
The end result: the only national champion to lose two regular season games in multiple overtimes.
Crazy as hell. But great. I doubt we’ll see another season like it again.
This year’s Georgia class is certainly something worth getting excited about, but when you read this David Wunderlich piece comparing the talent of Alabama, FSU and Ohio State, you realize Kirby Smart still has a long way to go.
I mean, this is friggin’ impressive/depressing, depending on your point of view.
Looking more at the top end, I counted how many players each team had rated at 0.9400 and above. That will tell me how many players the programs have in the 5-star and top half of the 4-star range. Alabama wins, of course, with 45 such guys — more than half of its 84 scholarship players. Ohio State has 35, and Florida State has 28. These truly are three of the most talented teams in the country, yet Alabama outpaces the other two with startling ease in some ways. [Emphasis added.]
This goes to show how much Saban and Urban Meyer are sitting on top of the game right now. Florida State is a consensus College Football Playoff contender and the expected champion of what was arguably the game’s best conference last year. It has a roster that nearly every other FBS program would gladly trade for its own. Yet Alabama and Ohio State have noticeable talent advantages over it.
When you recall what David had to say about Georgia’s roster, in comparison, it’s hard to avoid the depressing option. You could make the argument that Alabama’s second team is talented enough on its own to make a run to win the SEC East.
Kirby’s got to keep grinding, that’s all.
