4-1 runs have bookended 1-4 stretch

Over the past fifteen football games played by the University of Georgia, the Dawgs have won only nine and lost six, a fireable record for the head coach. With the win over Idaho State, UGA has gone 4-1 over five…

Disappointing Triumvirate: Green, Ealey, C. King

When I’m publicly having to answer this question to LSU fans and BAMA fans: What happened to GEORGIA? We have problems as a program. We have been a huge two-year disappointment, after being disappointed with a #10 national finish three…

Can UGA Vanquish Growing Pains?

GEORGIA can do a whole lot to begin to vanquish this season’s growing pains by pulling out a victory at Colorado Saturday night. We won’t recover from 0-3 in the SEC this weekend, nor this season, but we need –…

Grantham’s Defense Not The Problem

When Grantham took over as defensive coordinator after last season, Georgia was coming off an 8-5 campaign full of defensive pains. Georgia had had two remarkably poor defensive seasons in a row; resultant: Richt gave Martinez his walking papers. Martinez’s…

Reality Bites

When a promising season starts with by far your best player being suspended. When you go to 0-2 in the SEC and have no real home field advantage. When poor protection, obvious play calling and quarterback inexperience leads to six…

Tough Home Loss

Playing without starting fullback Chapas, starting tailback C. King and suspended all-world (selfish idiot) wideout AJ Green, Georgia trailed top SEC offensive squad Arkansas by two touchdowns late. The play calling had been so predictable that I called for an…

Conservative Game Plan Fails

Why Georgia why? We have a head coach with a 4-1 record in Columbia. During those four tough DAWGS wins and now one ugly loss, we have scored a total of four offensive touchdowns. Trailing 14-6, Washaun Ealey dropped the…

Scoutin’ the Cajuns

Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns – formerly Louisiana-Lafayette and before that Southwest Louisiana – play in the Sunbelt Conference in front of 31,000. They travel to ATHENS, GA Saturday to take on your Big Hairy Dawgs in an opener tuneup for GEORGIA…

Multiple Offense

“Picture this. Get the picture, you guys.” the Legendary Larry Munson Imagine: Dawgs are in an “I.” Toss sweep to Ealey, he gets seven and could have busted that one. The corner was sealed well by Chapas, one of our…

A Record I’d Like to See Fall

My Great Uncle Griff – Dad’s dad’s brother – dominated the Southwest Conference as a running back in the late 1910’s. He graduated from Rice University in 1920, is a member of their school’s Hall of Fame and held nearly…

Never the same as last year

Every year I follow a multitude of preseason prognosticators and guffaw. They generally have very little deviation from the end of the previous season’s order of finish in any given league. This is just amateur of these so-called professionals. They…

What if UGA Struggles Again?

If we drop more than three games next season, I expect a full onslaught of angry Dawgs to storm the office of Damon Evans and call for Richt’s head. Damon would stand by Coach, but that is a highly-realistic expectation,…

We Run the Ball

Remember when Garrison Hearst turned that corner as a junior, like a stallion?Remember when Robert Edwards went off against South Carolina for a game and Tennessee for a half, when he debuted? Remember Hampton, Remember Herschel. Tate Center right near…

Offense Sharp in Scrimmage Two

Zach Mettenberger and Aaron Murray continued to play well in live game situations, as scrimmage two was played in Athens, GA the saturday before Easter. They also both had strong showings in the first scrimmage played a week earlier. Logan…

Scrimmage in the Books

A year ago, a big question mark in Athens was the running backs. Richard Samuel was hurt and Caleb King was in the spotlight. By fall practice, Samuel was shining in scrimmages and King was struggling, unprepared to lead. We…

Let’s Get Back to Football

Spring means flowers and showers and March Madness for some …. For us, spring means FOOTBALL. G-Day Game is April 10th at 2pm, and until then, it’s time to get back to football practice for the returning UGA players. We…

Dawgs-Big Green, O-Town

WHY BOBO IS A BETTER OC THAN RICHT

1. HE UNDERSTANDS THE POWER RUNNING GAME. I LOVE COACH MARK RICHT THE LEADER, BUT HIS OFFENSES HAVE NEVER FAVORED POWER RUNNING. OUR PRIMARY RUNNING PLAY FOR THE YEARS THAT CMR WAS OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR WAS THE SHOTGUN DRAW HANDOFF. ALTHOUGH…
