Dejected and Dumbed Down
I really am savoring this victory over Tech. For one, it just felt good to beat them, but honestly I am just awe struck by how hard this team has worked to stay together despite the “Richt on the hot seat’ meme and those 2 devastating losses.
I’ll have some more in depth stuff for tomorrow….but for now these quick hitters will have to do:
– Murray is much more in sync with his footwork when he trusts his OL.
-Chris Conley is turning into one helluva receiver
-I have changed my vote for the biggest offseason acquisition from Crowell to Big John Jenkins.
-Garrison Smith really did a nice job in place of Deangelo Tyson. After it gashed us a couple of times, he completely blew up those slant hand-offs.
-Todd Grantham for President
-Dick move by Johnson not letting the clock just run given 12 seconds left, but Paul Johnson is a dick.
-Speaking of dick moves, Johnson’s time-out ‘ice’ for that field goal sure did backfire didn’t it?
-Blair Walsh, I’m sorry buddy. I still love you.
-Jarvis Jones got another sack.
-Murray still needs another year to pick up the accuracy before I put him in the ‘lethal’ status.
-Orson Charles, best tight end in the Nation? Anybody?
-If Aron White dropped that TD pass he should have kept right on running right out of the stadium.
-Is it just me (besides that one pass today) or is Sanders Commings our lock-down CB?
-Tech fans are butt hurt lillies when they lose. The excuses on the blogosphere are deep, plentiful, and as usual lacking in the rational department
-Alec Ogletree looks like the defensive Megatron
I said it’s Great to Be A Georgia Bulldawg!
Reporting to you from the future, at exactly 3:43 PM on Saturday November 5, 2011 on site at Sanford Stadium where the scene here was nothing but straight domination. Nick Marshall rushed for 219 yards and 4 scores today as the Dawgs butt-rape the New Mexico St Aggies 64-7.
Marshall’s performance was quite unexpected, yet much appreciated as UGA’s regular tailbacks were suspended for
violating team rules smoking the sticky. While the entire UGA back field has more than 40 yards a piece (Harton 42, Murray 41, and Ogletree 43) it was Marshall with his 6 carry scoring-machine performance that sent the crowd into a very hyped-up impregnating fiesta frenzy.
Fueled by Marshall’s performance, the Dawgs Defense allowed 0 points, 4 interceptions, 10 tackles for a loss, and all of that was from Jarvis Jones alone.
Going forward, Mike Bobo has a tough choice to make in the coming weeks as to who to start. While Crowell has been quite the amazing freshman, Marshall has shown not only his ability to tote the rock, but also an ability not to give stupid as shit interviews, breaking team rules, and bitching about play calling.
Truth be told, much to my chagrin, I doubt Marshall will even get the ball or if he even can be a RB. But, something interesting and quite scary that you all should be thinking about is that Crowell is walking a razor thin line. Don’t mistake what I’m saying to be throwing this kid under the bus, but here are some glaring issues that could be tale-tale signs of a Washaun Ealey on steroids:
1) Has had discipline issues since pretty much day 1
2) Has been overheard chirping about Bobo’s play calling
3) Has made mention several times about how “difficult” school is
4) Can’t interview worth a damn.
5) This latest suspension
I know he’s young and he’s not probably been exposed to the finer things in etiquette, manners, and proper ways of doing things, but he has to realize that if this keeps up and he continues to put himself above the team he will become an Ealey and will be forgotten. Especially if Keith Marshall comes here. Who is Keith Marshall? The Nation’s no1 RB coming out of highschool right now who is heavily considering UGA.
I just hope that Crowell understands what being a student athlete means and what it is to be a Bulldawg. I just hope he learns his lesson sooner rather than later when he has to transfer to UT-Martin.
NOTE: When I say ‘Nick Marshall’, I mean Nick Marshall currently on the Dawgs squad. When I say ‘Keith Marhsall’, I mean Keith Marshall HS RB from Northkerlina.
Just for shits, Keith Marshall highlights:
There was a time, not too long ago, when going to a UGA game was more than a game. It was more than a crowd, or an event, or a win. It was an EXPERIENCE. An experience that was uniquely Georgia. An experience that was not only entertaining, but (In my opinion) was an experience that rivaled every other SEC Stadium’s experience bar none.
Sitting in Sanford Stadium on last Saturday night, looking at our field and listening to whale-squeeze for music, longing for 2005 didn’t just extend to our record. That poor pitiful field (grass and hedges not included). It has been stripped down to a vanilla, pathetic, former version of what we all want it to be. In 2008, they removed the red outline. In 2009, they removed the red outline from the numbers on the field. In 2010, they made the field numbers and hash marks thinner. In 2011, THEY REMOVED THE ‘G’ SYMBOL on the goal line! I know I wasn’t the only one to notice this because I heard the bitching from every corner of the stadium.
The red outlines, the larger lines, and for God’s sake the ‘G’ goal line symbol were all pieces of a sacred and ultimate game experience. Now they are gone. Chipping away at all of these things have left me and my game going buddies I sit with not only yearning for the past, but also lamenting the present and dreading the future.
Where does it stop? Does it even stop. This all may sound trivial to some of you, but it really strikes a chord with me. If you take away all of the things that make that Stadium and our football team uniquely Georgia, then what do we become? Answer: Another mediocre team, with mediocre fans, playing and sobbing together in a mediocre stadium.
Please write, as I have Greg McGarity on this issue. Maybe some traction can be gained, who knows. Mark my words, if McGarity ever comes to speak at any of the East Metro Bulldog Club meetings, I will ask him this question. In the meantime, please email or write the athletic office if you are as concerned as I am.

horid bullshit Zombie Nation trash, music played before kickoffs.
