You Don’t Deserve Georgia Games…
Ok, are we over this Boise loss yet? I hope so. I was over Sunday after the first shot rang out of my 11-87 Sportsman and found its mark on an unsuspecting Dove. But let’s be honest, if you think Boise St was a ‘fake’ team and we should’ve just rolled all over them, you should go play in traffic.
Our defense seems much improved from last year. Even though they gave up 35 points, it wasn’t like Moore was just letting it fly and connecting on 30-40 yard passes. In fact, I didn’t see in the stats where he made a completion over 20 yards. We looked much more physical and under control. They nickled and dimed us to death and our Offense couldn’t amount much of anything so our defense seemed to be on the field with short field to their back most of the night.
Malcome Mitchell. Remember that name. He broke on that seam route and Boise’s safety looked like he was mucking around in swamp boots. He also was targeted a couple of more times (and he WAS wide open the, too) but Murray sailed those passes.
Drew Butler and the punt team. He averaged 48 yards on the night. If it wasn’t for Butler and this unit, we get blown out of the stadium.
Crowell. He had some of the greatest 3 yard runs in UGA history on Saturday night. If we can get back to non predicatble play-calling and run more out of the I, it will bode well for him.
Jarvis Jones. He was ALL OVER the place. He is amazing and looks like he has a bright future in at that OLB spot.
Murray. Although I hate to put him here, his game play wasn’t stellar. Although the multiple dropped passes didn’t help and neither did the play calling, and neither did the protection…I would really want to label this as ‘ok’ but I just can’t.
Offensive Line. If Bean Anderson jumps offsides one more time, they should soap blanket bludgeon him. Uncalled for and ridiculous. Also, it didn’t look like Friend made too many adjustments to stop no 92’s backside rampage that cost us 2 sacks and a 4th and 1.
Play calling. I get why everyone is so mad. I was too. You can ask Captain and this random guy that sat in front of us I called the first 6 plays we ran (even the Boykin end around, which was blocked BEAUTIFULLY I might add). If some ex-football and mildly inebriated fan in section 310 can call the first 6 plays, then I’m sure it was a gift-wrapped present for Boise’s D Coordinator. I’m not gonna second guess Bobo for the entire season based on one game, but it was abysmal. I’ll never understand why we didn’t use our 250 lb fullback to block in the I, or how Boise gave us the seam all night yet we only threw a pass for that once (which resulted in a Malcome Mitchell TD), or how we never ran a crossing pattern over the middle even though their DB’s bailed every time they saw pass. It’s unnerving and pathetic.
Dawgs Fans. I swear, I love our fan base but sometimes we take it to extremes. I mean some of the stuff I saw on Facebook and Twitter were inexcusable. Fire Richt! Fire Bobo! Fire Grantham! Fire Murray! Revoke Crowell’s Scholarship! Eat shit UGA, I’ll never go to another game again. That kind of whale squeeze doesn’t belong in our fan base. Go take your Stafford jersey, backwards G hat, earrings, gold chains, and your meth and go sit on a buzz saw. You don’t deserve Georgia games. As the season goes on and we don’t make any progress, then yes. I agree a change should be coming, but remember these kids can read what you post. Their psyche is fragile enough.
Look, we played a legit top 3 team who was well coached, well disciplined, seasoned, and resourceful. We on the other hand are a young inexperienced, and largely green team who is searching for an identity. Boise St is a great team. We played them somewhat close and even with our mistakes and miscues were still in the game at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Not great, but something is to be said for having a chance against that team. Let us not forget South Carolina had to make one hell of a comeback against a vastly weaker team in ECU. I like our chances on Saturday, as long as we come to play.
I never want to wear anything but our standard home or away jersey’s EVER. You could not even see what numbers we were wearing and I want the names on the back of the jersey. Nike flubbed on these and should be punished.
The Dome at the beginning of the game was the loudest sporting even I’ve ever heard. I’ve never been in a more exciting atmosphere for a game.
