Wow! What an impressive Saturday night! Sorry so late for the post, I have been a little under the weather - that may have something to do with how hard I celebrated Saturday night...

As for the game - helluva game plan! Beat tech at their own game and do not let our quarterback lose the game. Whoever came up with that idea - genius!

Watching the Ealey and King tandem was special. For the first time I watched King run with a chip on his shoulder, for the first time it looked like the game and results meant something. With that said, we have already seen that side of Ealey, he has that attitude on every run. You can tell he isn't going to take any jive from anyone. Washaun taunting the tech student section, I'm still smiling about that!

This is what Washaun said after the game - "We had some holes open up early and it didn't take us long to see that they really didn't want to tackle us."

How about the attitude from these guys from the beginning? Both backs knew they were going to pound the ball, they knew the game plan was going to involve them heavily. King had "I run this state" written in silver marker down his arms. Ealey had it written on his glare stickers.

Paul Johnson talking after the game trying to down play the game. If the game doesn't mean much you don't make rings for winning the year before. You also don't strategically take the week off before the game if you don't care about winning.

I will say that CPJ did admit that we were unstoppable. I think that was more of his way of blaming it on his DC but still, he said it.

If you didn't see him, here's Russ, the "fill in" UGA below...

Now that the season is over, minus our bowl game, the buzz is on what CMR & Co are going to do about the coaching staff. I can say this, nothing has changed really. I checked sources ALL day yesterday - nothing...
Rumors are spreading like wildfire but nothing solid has been said.

I did get a good laugh yesterday at a guy who said he was at the airport in Tuscaloosa waiting to see if CMR would show up. Now that is dedicated. I am pretty sure if Georgia is going to make a run at Kirby Smart, it will at least be after the SEC Champ game; that is my opinion though.

And finally, The Tuberville rumors are insane. Everyone is thinking that the Tubs is coming in, now I know people lie just to cover up what is going on until the truth comes out, But this morning on the radio, Tommy specifically said he would not be interested in a DC job. He wants to be a head coach.

**One more major rumor that probably has some truth to it. Louisville fired its coach and word is that they have been talking with Charlie Strong the defensive coordinator for Florida. Charlie Strong is an awesome coach, that's great news for him if this is true. I'm sure a lot if SEC schools will be happy if the hire turns out.

This could force Georgia to make an early decision on coaching changes though. If Strong leaves, that will put Georgia and Florida in the DC hunt at the same time, possibly a position Georgia does not want to be in.


If you haven't seen or heard the "wired" version of Stafford during the Browns game check it out.

If you missed the hit from the LSU vs Arkansas game. Check it out.

Florida will most likely be without their star DE for the SEC Championship game. Carlos Dunlap was charged with a DUI.

Dawgs win

All UGA's go to Heaven

Is no news good news?

I guess it depends on if you want every Georgia football coach canned. Either way there isn't much news coming out of Athens right now. When you lose football games (a lot of them) to teams you should easily beat, not too many people are running their mouth.

The only question in Athens right now is...

How many points will CPJ score on us? Word is, it's going to get real nasty downtown on Saturday. All of the tech fans want to see CPJ embarrass CMR and the Dawgs. They want a score that will last forever. The thought is that this is definitely the year to do it...if Arkansas, South Carolina, Florida, Kentucky, & Tennessee can score at will then why can't tech put up 50+?
Even the ACC beat writers and ESPN ACC analysts are picking 40+ points for tech.

CMR said he is aware of the explosive offense the tech has, that it takes assignment football to hang with those guys. You know, that is true, stick to your lanes, move off of your blocks and make the tackle. Simple huh? Well guess what, that is the biggest problem with this Georgia team, assignments, discipline, and tackle football.
This late in the season let's just hope that they have learned by now!

This will most likely be my last post for the week since I will be taking a vacation leave for the holidays so I will make a half-ass prediction.

Georgia wins period. Why will they win, hell if I know, but I am calling it. Why wouldn't they win? Anyone can stop the option right? (only Miami has done it this regular season)
Look, we actually have the team to do it. We have a solid d-line (DE has to be able to read inside or out) and solid linebackers. I am no expert on the option so I am not too sure how CPJ's offense affects our secondary? I do know that the DB's are going to have to be able to come up and tackle - with that said I am going to feel sorry for little Brandon Smith if fat-ass Dwyer is headed his direction.
The last thing is the Safety job - Yes, I am scared as hell!!

I think #3 is going to put his hair down and bust heads on Saturday and he might even have a pick and solid coverage (wink-wink)!!!

No seriously, I know Georgia can win if they play the way they are capable of playing. I know, I know, I'm just saying...

I'm picking the Dawgs to win and by god I'm going to burn the house down if they do!!

Happy Holiday's my friends!
Cheers to my next post being about how solid Georgia is after a bug beat down!


This could be the greatest video ever. Les Miles claims that he didn't know who signaled the game ending "spike" against Ole Miss. Watch the video and you can clearly see it was...LES himself!! Great lie Les, idiot!

Kiffin pushing around his players??

Jimmy Clausen got his arse whipped in a bar after the UCONN loss!

Good to see it didn't hinder his game with the ladies...

A few things on my mind after the loss to Kentucky.

Is Kentucky really that good at kick returns? You would have thought Deion was back there the way we avoided kicking off. Is our kick coverage that bad? Can we not field athletes to handle Kentucky??

I have stood behind CMR with everything. I will question what is going on. How is it that "the best position to win" is Joe Cox? Is our recruiting that far off? How does an "offensive genius" in Richt not know that Joe Cox is this bad? How do we not have a backup quarterback? Logan Gray cannot play, no one has prepared him. WHAT are the offensive coaches doing? It is so embarrassing to know that we recruit solid classes year in and year out but I will be damned if we have a QB. Joe Cox single handedly lost this game - It's just embarrassing.

One question you might need to ask yourself when thinking about the future of Georgia football. Let's say Georgia does get things back together and starts putting together solid teams again.

Will they be able to beat Florida?
Why would we think yes? Don't tell me you are going to bring up 2007? Sure we can, we won, but Florida lost 4 games that year. So we beat them on their down year. Maybe that's what we can look forward to, just beating Florida when they are down. They have slaughtered us the last two.

Can we compete with Alabama now that Saban is there? Can you honestly say that Richt and the Dawgs are prepared better, coached better, confident enough to beat Alabama? Does Georgia field a team that pays attention to every single detail like Alabama?

What makes Alabama special to me? They always play to their strengths and nothing more. They protect their quarterback.

Does this sound like protecting your bone-head quarterback or playing to your strengths?? Your team is down a touchdown, you have rushed for 196 yards in the game so far (196 yards!!!), you have 48 yards to get in the end zone but we are still passing.
Of course you know what happens next...Cox throws a cupcake straight to the Kentucky lineman.

That kind of play call is shocking - wtf is going on? OR how about the toss play at the goal line? You shouldn't be tossing it at the goal line?? You run the football straight down their throat! The play call should have been a Cox sneak or a handoff to the FB. We had two downs to go 1-yard - we toss the football...embarrassing.

What are your thoughts?

Georgia has Joe Cox.
Georgia still continues to commit stupid penalties.
The play calling is heinous game in and game out.
#3 continues to play - need I say more?
We have no backup quarterback; it's either Cox or a true freshman.
Tennessee is out recruiting us.
Georgia Tech is by far the best football team in the state of Georgia.

I watched the UGA vs AU game again and I tell you what - our offensive line was impressive!
They blocked very well for the run. Another thing I noticed is how well C King ran the ball, he just looked really smooth coming through the hole.
It reminded me of just downhill running that we haven't really seen too much of. We really pounded the football late in the game and it was awesome!

I can't get enough of the highlights - I get fired up watching RAMBO raise his arms after being put on the stretcher.

I hope we see more improvement this week against Kentucky and hopefully Thanksgiving weekend the O-line will be slaying tech's defense. Georgia is going to have to be successful in running the ball against them. They are going to do it to us. We will need to be able to control the clock and work on their defense. More to come on the nerds later though..

RIP UGA VII - The passing of UGA yesterday gave me a funny feeling. Something just doesn't feel right about it. Come tomorrow there will be no mascot on the field. The fans are talking "fan blackout" to remember the pup.
All of this got me thinking about how it seems correlated to Georgia football. Last year Georgia was #1 preseason, we were supposed to be sharp. We blacked out the Bama game and all we got was a black-eye beat down. It seemed like something was missing. From the season out all the expectations were down, a loss to Florida, and then to Tech. Rolling over to this year things were supposed to be different, the football team is young but CMR said they took another approach and prepared harder than ever. The season is down, now the Georgia mascot has passed. All of coaches could be hung in the off-season, some want Richt out and some say he'll never make it. A lot of people think Georgia is on the decline, the program is failing. It seems like something is missing. What is it? That can't be answered right now, at least not by me. Only time will tell, my bet is that we get it straightened out - Georgia will continue to fight...

This Georgia football team is fighting for a decent bowl bid, fighting for their coaches, fighting for their mascot, fighting for their pride, fighting for Veazey, and fighting for the seniors on this team. There might be something missing, there might be a lot of questions being asked but this team still has a lot to play for, a lot to look forward to. I hope they prove that by finishing up strong (especially against GT).

Go Dawgs!!

Georgia: Bowl Bound

Ok. So now the Dawgs are Bowl eligible. Where are they going to play? What bowl should we be hoping for? All this will depend on if we beat Kentucky and that shat-hole school in Atlanta.

So if Georgia wins this weekend against Kentucky they clinch second place in the SEC east.

Below are the SEC bowls we have/had a shot at listed in the best bowls from top-to-bottom.

National Championship
Sugar Bowl
Capital One Bowl
Outback Bowl (East) / Cotton Bowl (West)
Chick-fil-a Bowl
Liberty Bowl / Music City Bowl
Independence Bowl Bowl

So what does all of that mean? Well if we can beat Kentucky and the shat-hole school in Atlanta, Georgia has a good shot at getting to the Outback Bowl. However, if we lose to the shat-hole school in Atlanta then they may look to Tennessee since Georgia will be fresh off of a lose. Meaning we would be hopeful to get in the Chick-fil-a bowl or we could get pushed back to the Liberty or Music City Bowl.

Bottom line is that we need to beat Kentucky and the shat-hole school in Atlanta. By doing so, it should ensure the Dawgs of a trip to Tampa in the Outback Bowl vs a mighty Big Ten team.

If we don't win out look for Georgia to MAYBE get a bid to the Chick-fil-a Bowl but I suspect more like the Music City or Liberty. Bowl season can be tricky, the Bowl committees tend to like "hot" teams and if Georgia were to lose, god help me, it could really hurt our Bowl slot.

**When I say they like "hot" teams, disregard the 2007 season when Georgia was on F'in fire and some thought they were shafted out of the NC...we didn't play for the SEC title though.

A Great Night

Helluva game on Saturday night! It was very special to see the Dawgs fight back from down 14 in the first quarter. I was impressed with the lack of penalties, the Dawgs committed 4. The fact that we didn't have any turnovers played a big part in the win as well.

I have criticized CWM almost all year long, and rightfully so, BUT...

It was cool to see him so fired up on Saturday night. He was by far the most excited person on the sidelines. He jumped, he pumped his fists, he chest bumped players, he constantly ran up and down the sidelines. He seemed like a man on a mission that had a gameplan for Auburn and everything worked (after the first quarter). Thanks Willie.

I'm not saying CWM shouldn't be canned, It's not my decision - I just thought it was cool to see. Maybe I'm just happy that Georgia only surrenderd 24 points??

The running game looked solid as well. I thought Ealey and King complimented each other very well - Both averaged over 5 yards per carry. Check out the block King dishes out on the TD pass to Troupe - The Grit Tree

This weekend was a huge recruiting weekend as well. Georgia had a lot of recruits at the game. There have been good reports out of what Jeff Luc had to say, his teamate Deon Rogers, Brandon Burrows, Nickell Robey, Telvin Smith, Matt Elam, and Jeffrey Whitaker.

I know most are concerned about Jeff Luc. He still stayed the same, he doesn't want to lean one way or the other. He said he enjoyed it and that is about all you can get out of that kid - nonetheless it was still good news.

Two Tennesse player are shown the door in Knoxville. Janzen Jackson is the only one who still has a chance to stay on the team.

**UGA vs GT is at 8:00pm**

AJ Green will not play against Kentucky.

Rambo was back with the team Sunday night laughing and joking with his teamates. He will not play against kentucky either. As everyone know I have pushed for Rambo to play over #3 all year long. When he went down Saturday night I was sick. Glad to hear is recovering so fast. By the way, he basically saved that game with that physical hit on the goal line. He also should have had a pick but he and Reshad Jones both went after the ball. Solid play again Rambo!

It was a great night in Athens, Ga!!

Some Volunteers go to jail

Three major athletes are charged with armed robbery in Knoxville, Tn.

Here is a portion of the police report:

The victims stated that moments before calling 911, they were sitting in their parked vehicle, a 1998 Hyundai Elantra on the southwest corner of the convenience store, while their friend was inside. The victims stated they had parked next to a light blue Toyota Prius. The victims stated that a black male then approached, wearing a black hoodie, brandished a black semi-auto handgun, opened the drivers door and stated, "Give me everything you have." The victims stated that a black male then exited from the passenger side of the Prius, wearing a black hoodie, walked around to the front passenger door of their car, opened it, and stated, "Give us everything you've got." The victims stated that they all presented their wallets to the suspects and showed them that they did not have money. The victims stated that a third black male then approached and told the other two black males, "We've got to go." The victims then stated that the three got into the Prius and that it was last seen traveling southbound on Volunteer Blvd West.

As the officers received information about the suspects and vehicle, it was bolod so that other responding officers could attempt to locate it. A witness indicated there was a female driving the car and that it was occupied by three black males when she had observed it. As we continued to investigate, assisting officers observed the suspect vehicle in question, traveling near Gibbs Hall on Lake Loudoun Blvd. A felony stop was conducted on the vehicle, a 2010 Toyota Prius, light blue in color, on Neyland Dr near Leinard Ln. Four subjects were detained from the vehicle: a light-skinned black female, Marie Montmarquet and three black males: Janzen Jackson , Michael Edwards and Nukeese Richardson .

In plain view, officers observed two black hoodies on the back seat. Underneath the back seat towards the middle, officers located a black, CO2 powered pellet gun. Inside the glove box, officers located a marijuana grinder. A search of the suspects revealed one clear plastic baggie containing a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana in Montmarquet's jacket pocket. Montmarquet would later state that the marijuana grinder also belonged to her. Crime Lab responded to the scene and confiscated the hoodies, the pellet gun and the marijuana grinder. The vehicle was towed to the City Impound lot. The marijuana was confiscated by officers.

It was also mentioned on Rivals that Jackson didn't play last week because of a failed drug test.
Richardson also has been very upset about his playing time.

This is terrible news for some very talented athletes, these guys were supposed to be special. We'll see how this turns out but as of now it doesn't look good. I must say - I'm pleased.

The UT athletic director will probably frown upon this...

Get Paid

It's midweek already and I have been slacking on the blizzog. Maybe because we played Tenn Tech and they looked about as good as we did against Florida?

I was happy to see us play well though. We needed solid play before the Auburn game and that's what we got.

We did have a penalty fiesta though - is it that hard to know the snap count? CMR benched the players that committed penalties - I liked that, but it seemed as if the players enjoyed it. You would think that by being benched it would have cut back on the yellow flags...not these Dawgs, they tallied 11. That just isn't going to get it done on Saturday against Auburn.

This was posted in the USA today, yesterday. The link is information about what head coaches are getting paid, bonuses, etc. It also has the info on the assistant coaches.

If you don't want to look over it, here is what you might care about...


The most CMR could make this year would be - $3,571,576 ($2,029,816)

The most Paul Johnson can make - $3,325,000 ($1,680,000)

Urban Meyer - $4,000,000+ ($1,965,000)

Nick Saban - $4,600,000 ($2,702,551)

Lane Kiffin - $2,540,000 ($3,325,000)

Bobby Petrino - $3,408,000 ($2,034,888)

Houston Nutt - $3,224,000 ($1,843,608)

Steve Spurrier - $2,931,500 ($1,870,000)

Gene Chizik - $3,350,000 ($2,560,000)

Les Miles - $4,401,000 ($2,725,285)

Dan Mullen - $1,200,000+ ($1,805,000)

Highest Payrolls -

#1 Alabama
#2 LSU
#3 Florida
#4 Auburn
#5 Tennessee
#6 Georgia
#7 Arkansas

I am still a firm believer that CMR will not get rid of CWM. I really don't think CMR has it in him. I have felt this way all along, I still won't believe it until it happens.

As I still think this, I read a very interesting article that seemed as if Georgia/CMR might already be looking around. I was shocked to see this but the article implies that CMR might not have any other choice but to shed CWM.

I get a lot of emails about who could be the new DC. I have stated before that CMR would promote from within. This source seemed to think otherwise...

Candidates that could be...

Dick Bumpas - TCU

Everett Withers - UNC

Kevin Steele - Clemson

Kirby Smart - Alabama

Lorenzo Ward - South Carolina

Manny Diaz - Middle Tennessee State

Bud Foster - Virginia Tech

Tommy Tuberville - Ex-Auburn Head coach

What's my take on this? I still don't think CWM will be fired, I just have a feeling that he will still be there. Now, if CWM is recycled I believe we have a shot at only three of the coordinators listed above. This is my opinion only, I really have no clue...

Dick Bumpas - TCU --- I think this is possible only because he is on a small stage right now. He might be looking to become a more recognized DC and what better place to do that? The SEC.

Manny Diaz - Middle Tennessee State --- Same thing here, Manny seems to be making great strides with MTSU and he, I'm sure, would love to get the chance to run a big time program.

Kirby Smart - Alabama --- Kirby played for Georgia; I think if he would want it, he's in. I don't know why he would leave Alabama and Nick Saban? Why make a lateral move for probably less money? Also coming in to the picture here would be Florida State. As I posted earlier, Mickey Andrews is leaving FSU, Kirby was a Grad assistant at FSU, and so he would probably give them a look too.

I'm not a big fan of talking about "the next" DC for Georgia. I don't think anyone should be speculating this early, however I think it poses for an interesting conversation. If it does happen I hope that CMR really makes a solid choice, I am just afraid that Georgia will not pay appropriately to reel in the big name.

Ealey looks solid

Mid-week thoughts -

I must say, I have been very impressed by Ealey. I keep reading that C King is going to get the start this weekend - I don't have a problem with that. I am just trying to say that Ealey has looked really good for a freshman running behind a pitiful offensive line. He also had a great catch coming out of the backfield. I am excited about the upcoming year after he has some time to really prepare for the season!

Anyone notice how many Florida defenders were around AJ Green every time the ball was in the air coming in his direction? It was at least two and sometimes four and five. Which makes me wonder who wasn't covered on the play?

I am fairly disappointed in CMR. It really annoys me that he will not/has not held Willie accountable for the play of his defense.
We are getting annihilated on defense, we have been for a while now, yet nothing is said about Willie and his inadequate performances. The Georgia defense has been feeble all year, what is going to happen if we lose to Auburn? Auburn has toasted some defenses this year. What about Tech? What if Willie's long-lost defense gets posterized again by our in state rival? At what point do you make changes? At what point is CMR going to come out and say that he will make changes? It's at a very low point right now, how did it get this bad?

At some point someone (preferably our coach) has to be sure the job is getting done and that the program is still on the right track.

Just imagine - another tech victory because CMR neglects to act upon mediocrity. CMR doesn't want to over-react, doesn't want to hurt the feelings of his loyal assistants. I am disgusted by the thought...

What got me thinking about this was this quote by Joe Cox talking about CMR keeping him as the starter, CMR continuing to support him -

"It means a lot...It's a reality check."

Um Joe...the reality should have hit you a long time ago. Did it just now sink in that you have thrown a bushel full of int's and that the team has four losses? I guess you thought every thing was going pretty smooth huh??
Geez, that comment makes me mad...

Dawg down...

Saturday was pretty bad, the uniform move was dredful, and in my opinion CMR seems a little burned out.

The game wasn't close, I must admit I had a little hope when it was 14-10 but that was quickly shot down. I watched the first half of the game again and for us to have a week off and Florida still steam roll down the field the first two drives. Did our defense have a clue? Two weeks of prep and that's how we respond?

The uniform selection sucked. CMR said that they would not do that until the team earned it. The 2009 Georgia Bulldogs haven't earned anything except four loses.

Watching CMR in the presser really stressed me out. He looked tired and uninterested - I hope he was planning a coaching shakeup. This much talent shouldn't look that bad. I still don't know that I am calling for coaches to be fired, I just think some responsibility needs to be moved around and see who will step up.

And yes I am going to bring it up again. B Evans missed an easy tackle in the second quarter when A Hernandez was headed for the first down on a HUGE third down. Not only did Evans not tackle him, he wiffed! COMPLETELY missed him.
And I ask again, where is Rambo??

How about the Oregon game? I watched the entire second half of that game and Oregon thumped USC to the tune of 600+ yards of offense.

It's been talked about on every website, Mike and Mike, sportscenter, and the Dan Patrick show but here it is again. Brandon Spikes, the class of Florida, looking to stick his finger in a hole - he must of gotten that from his bother who is serving life in prison for first degree murder.

**This actually just came out, so I wrote all of this before hand - Urban suspending Spikes for the first half of the Vandy game.

Georgia vs Auburn 2009 is at 7pm. round table - where does Georgia go from here? This is a great piece to listen to...

And to top it off...AJ Green will not play against Tenn Tech - he has a rib injury. Also, Joe Cox will start the game against Tenn Tech.
