FSU minus 3.5 vs Nc State(Home)    Think FSU's the real deal

SOUTH CAROLINA(Home) minus 17.5 vs Tennessee      Spurrier runs it up vs a Dooley

ARKANSAS(Home) minus 20.5 vs Vandy      Petrino will try to run it up. Vandy's not good

UGA minus 2.5 vs Gata/Jorts wearers at Jacksonville     If we're gonna get them, now's the time. maybe we can call some TOs at the end to spite Urbie. I hate Florida.

Urban on Rainey

Posted by Mike

Urban on Chris Rainey

That strict disciplinarian Urban Meyer has stated Chris Rainey must meet certain conditions to be re-instated for action. Of course the Worm, I mean Coach, has not spelled out what those conditions are.

I wonder what restrictions he imposed:

    • Be able to run a 4.3
    • Don't threaten to kill anyone all week
    • No texting your ladies

Urban's offense has been anemic as he has been calling plays designed for Teabag when his QB is a more prototypical pro-style player. Rainey could open up the field and give the Dawgs D fits.

Go Gata!!!!

You gotta love Gator fans

Boise State/Lady Announcer??!!

Post by William

Some thoughts before we get deep into the Cocktail Party.

#1 The Atlanta Hawks kick off their season tonight in Memphis. I know the NBA is down the totem pole here but this team should be really exciting to watch. Josh Smith could be ready to explode into the star he was projected to be.

#2 This is Tony B's blog today. Very informative. Tell us what you think. #5 very interesting.

#3 Five reasons why Boise State can't win National Championship(beside what Tony says above):

     A- fundamentally unsound.
     B- if you play on Tuesday night, you're no factor
     C- Didn't slaughter La Tech when the whole country's watching
     D- Herbstreit is over the top on the bandwagon
     E- if you have a lady announcing your game, well.....enough said.

#4 Does UGA have what it takes to beat a down UF team? Has Urbie really changed the offense this week?(If you didn't catch the video I posted yesterday, take a look. Funny.) Can UGA stop the one or two tricks Urbie will have- probably in the kicking game?

#5 If you're going to the Cocktail Party, are you going because  you always go/have to go or are you really looking forward to it? Let us know. I don't really know of anyone going.

#6 Didn't know if you saw it but Sea Island's Jonathan Byrd won the PGA Tour event with an ace on the 4th palyoff hole. It was unbelievable.

#7 Are you excited about the World Series? If Buster Posey wasn't playing would you really care? There are some good stories in the series. Josh Hamilton....what a comeback. Cliff Lee could make himself an EXTRA $100 million when he signs with the Yankees next year if he pitches like he has been. Sure would be nice to be watching the Braves in it.

We'll have the weekly picks up tomorrow am and we'll have Cocktail Party stuff up all day Friday.

What turned Georgia around?

Posted by Mike

While many have pointed to the return of AJ as the turning point in the Dawg season, there may be another component to their three game win streak.

It appears the new defensive scheme has finally clicked into gear.

Check out the stats below:

Opponent Rushing yardage
Louisiana-Lafayett 14
South Carolina 189
Arkansas 53
Miss St 166
Colorado 235
Tennessee 9
Vanderbilt 58
Kentucky 70

In UGA's four wins the opponents have an average rushing mark of 38 yards per game. In the four losses that number is 162.

While it certainly does not hurt having AJ back on the O, more of the credit for the turn may need to go to the D finally catching on to the new system and shutting down the easy run yardage.

Bye-Week Advantage

I have often argued that the bye week advantage exist between two evenly matched teams. According to this site: BYE-WEEK ADVANTAGE my argument is false.

Lou Holtz

Post by William

I know some of you are in love with him but I just had to change the channel b/c Lou Holtz was talking. 1 hour pregame. Not that Mark May is a door prize either. Rece Davis/John Saunders  are great actors. (I bet Saunders loves them both)

His picks are on the right.

Weekend Picks

Post by William

OK. Here are my picks for the weekend. My picks are in ALL CAPS.

NOTRE DAME minus 7 vs Navy in Baltimore    ND wins in a snoozer. Worst announce team ever for this one.

NORTH CAROLINA plus 6.5 vs Miami(Home)      Butch Davis outcoaches Randy Shannon

Cincinnati plus 3.5 vs ATLANTA(Home)        Curtis Lofton will punish Ocho and TO. Too much chatter/drama in Cincy. Falcons roll

Tiebreaker      Total points LSU/Auburn    47

Wednesday Random Thoughts

Post by William

Just some Wednesday Random Thoughts....

#1 Is Auburn for real? Will Cam Newton win the Heisman? Auburn/LSU Saturday will be a war. Could be a shootout. Probably the biggest game in Auburn since Jason Campbell, Ronnie Brown, & Cadillac boatraced UGA back in the undefeated 2004 season. Trust me I was there.

#2 How hypocritcal is the NFL? They come out yesterday and fine 3 guys for vioelent hits. 1 was malicious, 1 was questionable since Massaquoi lowered his chest and 1 was crap. No way Robinson should have been fined. Shouldn't have been penalized. Knocked the ball loose and the Falcons recovered. Could have changed the game. ANYWAY.... the NFL had still photos of 2 of those hits for sale on their website. LET THEM PLAY!!!

#3 Don't want to jinx it but who besides me is glad the Yankees are getting it handed to them? Could be eliminated at 4 this afternoon. Typical Arod in the playoffs. Texeira looked like he'd been shot when he pulled his hamstring last night.

#4 It really is amazing how much of a difference AJ Green makes when he's on the field. He's just better than everybody else, kind of like Calvin Johnson at Ga Tech. I shudder to think what UGA will do next year with AJ in the NFL. Hopefully Isiah Crowell will get 20-25 carries.

#5 Hope this makes you all laugh. There's a rumor out there that the Spitter aka Lou Holtz will be the next Head Coach at Minnesota. Round 2. Good Luck with that. At least he would be off of my television.

#6 Very special Guest Picker this week. Please check back tomorrow for his picks.

Can (Should) Georgia win the SEC East?

Posted by Mike
Sunday morning, while on my way to Church, the announcer on Rivals Radio mentioned Georgia as a possible winner of the SEC East crown.

Sure my friend and co-producer William mentioned that last week, but come on, he is partisan, biased, delusional, fanatical.... have I left anything out?

When the thought goes mainstream on Rivals Radio it has more credence, and why shouldn't it? We beat a completely dysfunctional Tennessee team and Vandy. Oh yeah... we beat the always powerful Louisiana We Are Laughing At U and all of a sudden we are ready to play for a SEC title. Next thing you know someone will be lobbying for the chance to play Boise State for the BCS crown.

So why shouldn't UGA play in Atlanta in December for the SEC championship?

Well I can only think of a few reasons:

1 – Getting crushed by Auburn once this season will be enough.
2 – I would rather not be the sacrificial lamb of the East.
3 – Recruits won't be impressed by a drubbing in the Georgia Dome

So rather than set some pie in the sky fantasy why don't we focus on some more probable points.

1 – Let's get better! - The D and O are starting to click, and if we could just get the off field issues under control, UGA has a very bright future.
2 – Let's be sure to beat Kentucky. - Just ask Carolina and Coach Spurrier if that is an easy task.
3 – Let's beat Florida!!! - It is time to get a little pay back on the walking heart attack – emotional reflux – soft on crime – Urban. Another loss and the whiner may re-retire. Run it up until he whimpers!
4 – Let's play hard against Auburn, and keep them from hanging 50 on us! - Not trying tell CTG what to do, but putting a spy on Camzilla might be wise. Rambo should hawk his every move.
5 – Let's get to the SEC Championship game in a meaningful way in 2011.

By the way, the race to hire Dan Mullen is on. Will he be the next coach at UNC?

William's Picks for the Week

Post by William

OK. Here are the picks for the week. After going 7-2-1 last week, I've caught some grief about it being easy so we're having a very special Guest Picker this week. Those picks should be up before lunch tomorrow. Supposedly I'm going to lose bad.

This week's picks are the hardest we've picked yet.

Picks are in ALL CAPS

UGA(Home) minus 15 vs Vandy     UGA's back Baby!!!

South Carolina minus 5 vs KENTUCKY(Home)    UK wins outright. USC left it on field Saturday

FLORIDA(Home) minus 7 vs Miss St     Mullen might outcoach Urban but doesn't have talent

Alabama(Home) minus 21 vs OLE MISS      Bama wins easy but too many points.

NEBRASKA(Home) minus 9.5 vs Texas     Last time these 2 meet with UN going to Big Ten. Worldwide Redout. UT can't score.

FSU(Home) minus 21.5 vs Boston College    Jimbo Fisher is bringing the Noles back. Big win last week.

Ohio St minus 4 vs WISCONSIN(Home)    This place is going to up for grabs. Rumor has it they drink alot up there. (If anybody's been to a UW home game, let us know how it is.)

AUBURN(Home) minus 3.5 vs Arkansas      Hogs won't be able to stop Camzilla

GA TECH(Home) minus 18.5 vs Middle Tennessee       Good game for Tech before their schedule gets tougher

Philadelphia(Home) minus 3 vs ATLANTA     No Vick for Eagles means no win.  Falcons are good.

Only four and a half months until Spring training....

Posted by Mike
Even without Bobby Cox, the Braves will have a pretty darn good team next season. Our pitching staff and bullpen will be solid. Prado will be back, Conrad gone, and maybe Chipper can adjust to life under a new manager. The biggest question mark is who he will have to adjust to?

Terry Pendleton, Joe Torre, Bob Brenly...

Not sure TP is ready and there has been some discussion of hiring a proven winner to fill those enormous shoes. Brenly sure was complimentary of the Braves during the playoffs, and the timing of Torre's resignation from the Dodgers was a loud proclamation that he is interested in the job.

Brooks Conrad

Post by William

Been stewing over this since last night. How is it possible for a major leaguer to make 3 plays like that AFTER he'd made the errors in the previous games? At least he could get a hit OR GET A FREAKING BUNT DOWN! There's no way he can play today. Guy's gone completely mental at this point. He may have turned into Steve Sax who ended up not being able to get the ball from 2nd to 1st.

HOWEVER, still not a reason not to watch and pull hard for the Braves. Just remember the feeling you had right after Hinske hit the homer last night.

Change of 1st pitch. 7:37 tonight on TBS.

Game time set. Are you happy now?

Post by William

For all of you complaining about UGA kicking off at noon and having no night games, UGA at UK is scheduled for 7:30 kickoff on 10/23 on CSS. I hope you realize you won't get that game on tv if you don't have Comcast. Are you happy now?

What a long stranger trip its been...

What a long strange trip its been...
Posted by Mike
So a pitcher playing center field hits a dinger to keep the Braves alive. Sounds about right for this bunch of misfits.

Lets review what else happened in this very important game:
    • Bobby got tossed. Of course.
    • A Gon got a hit. He's a gamer and will be a difficult out fot the balance of the season.
    • D Lee got several hits. The power is all but gone, but give us singles and doubles and we just might get this done.
    • Wagner gets hurt, pitches through the pain to get another out, then limps off the field. Maybe for the last time. Just to keep track, we've lost Chipper (A hall of famer), Prado (our best hitter) and now Wagner. No need to worry though, this team thrives on adversity.
    • Kyle Farnsworth comes out of the pen and immediately plunks a batter to set up the double play. Of course now he has to entice Buster Posey to hit the ball on the ground. Just to get in the rookie's head, Farnsworth stands on top of the mound and points to second announcing to the world his intention to turn two.
    • Troy Glaus sucked it up, lubed up his rusty knees and returned to the hot corner to start that most important double play of the season.

Can't wait to see what happens next.

You think UGA missed AJ?

Just heard this stat...guess it's true.

AJ on the field last week- 9 possessions     427 yards

AJ off the field last week- not sure # of possessions(cramping!!)   negative 19 yards

Take of that what you will.

Hope he had a blast that Spring Break

An apology to the Gators.

Posted by Mike
I would like to issue a sincere apology to any Florida fans which may have visited our site from time to time. Yes I do refer to your former QB as Timmy Teabag, and I joke about your unofficial dress code of jorts. Sure I think Urban is low grade dog waste, but this link says it all:

A little baseball useless info

Post by William

#1 Braves just finalized their  25 man postseason roster. 8 rookies. 8 ROOKIES!!! Play hard boys. 9:37 first pitch...TBS.

#2 Possibly the greatest stat ever.... in Halladay's nohitter last night, he faced 28 batters(1 walk). He threw 25 balls. That's crazy good.

Stock Up Stock Down

Post by William


#1 Alabama/Nick Saban- The beating they gave Florida was totally impressive. All you need to know about Bama/Saban was watching Kirby Smart call the jump pass before the interception. Tony Barnhart's right. Bama looks better in their uniforms than anybody else.

#2 Braves/Bobby Cox- I really thought that the Braves had given it away after Saturday. The atmosphere at the Ted on Sunday reminded me of the 90s. Unbelievable. Place went nuts when Wagner got the 3rd out. Have a really good shot vs Giants.

#3 Falcons/Roddy White- The Falcons showed me something Sunday. They played awful for 3 quarters and still won. The play Roddy White made to cause the fumble on the interception may have saved the season.

#4 A J Green- I know. I said I wouldn't mention him. Can't help it. He's just better than everybody else. Too bad Spring Break meant that much to him. The one-handed TD catch was crazy.

#5 Ga Tech- They played awful for 3 1/2 quarters Saturday night. Came back and won with Nesbitt actually passing the ball. Never thought I'd see that.


#1 UGA- I never thought they'd lose at Starkville. I really never thought they'd lose at Colorado. Better win Saturday.

#2 A J Green- How can you cramp up in your first game? You've had until October 2 to get ready. DRINK GATORADE!!!

#3 Derek Dooley- 13 men on defense? That was a mess. I bet one thing though.... he'll NEVER do that again. I bet he learns from his mistakes.

#4 Les Miles- How can this idiot still have a job? You'd figure after the mess he made of the game last year, he would've figure out clock management.

Finally, #5 Urban Meyer. You got completely outcoached, outplayed and out physicalled Saturday night in Tuscaloosa. How can you still not snap the ball to the QB? The worst thing is that when they were down 31-6 Brantley gets DRILLED and has to come out of the game. Guy couldn't breathe. Then Meyer puts him back in. I couldn't believe that. There was no reason for Brantley to go back in. He was running for his life the whole night. Meyer's greasy.

Who's the happiest?

Post by William

Who's the happiest fanbase in college football?

Alabama? Duh. (Warning!!! Be very careful Saturday)

Ohio State? Boring

Boise State? TCU?

Oregon? Interesting to see if they and OSU go unbeaten, does Oregon jump OSU to #2?

Oklahoma? Just not sure about them yet. At least they're giving the ball to Murray finally.

Auburn? Camzilla? Cambo? If their D keeps it up, they're gonna  be hard to handle.

Stanford? I know they got beat down by Oregon Saturday but they're much better than in the recent past.(Enjoy it. Harbaugh's gonna cash in soon.)

Who have I left out? If so, why?

Tell me what you think.

Who's the angriest?

Post by William

Which college football fanbase has the right to claim they are "The Angriest"?

UGA? I won't get into all that. Makes my stomach hurt.

Tennessee? Boy Wonder left them in a mess.

LSU? The "Hat" is a complete idiot.

Florida? Sorry. Had to put them in after the Bama beatdown.

Texas? Does Muschamp take over? If so when?


Notre Dame? They're just not that good.

Boise State? TCU? They got jumped by Oregon and probably won't get a shot to jump back into the title game talk.

USC? Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Have I left out someone? If so, tell me who.

Let me know what you think.

Time for the children to grow up.

Posted by Mike
For two seasons now it has been my belief CMR is drowning in a quagmire of his own making. In a moment of weakness he encouraged his team to get penalized against Florida. He encouraged them to break the rules.

Small zebras, afraid of a possible riot, toss the flags to gain control. If you won't, we will. We have been living under their thumb ever since.

Two seasons ago Jeff Owens was injured. On the Sunday morning show CMR said he felt bad for his player getting hurt, but at least he a Jeff would get to hang out together for one more year. Owens, CMR, Stafford and Moreno were on a bowling team together.

“Hang out together.”

We must have practiced and lifted and conditioned somewhere between the bowling team and trips to the university pool for swim time.

There is no doubt CMR loves his players and UGA, but being liked and loved can only get you so far. Unless the players finally realize they had better do it for CMR bad things wait. Their friend is in trouble. He has protected, coddled and covered for them. His faith strong tells him there is a difference to be made and he'll turn the other cheek in arrest after arrest, penalty after penalty, fumble after fumble, never throwing a kid under the bus, always taking the heat for them.

He is in short a good man, but not a great coach. We've heard his accolades for ten years, and somehow we have known the truth.

There is a similar coaching personality just an hour from Athens, and he was heralded as a hero last weekend. Bobby Cox will get between umpires, fans, media or anything that may threaten one of his players, and in turn, professional spoiled brats will fight like the devil to deliver for the old boy and claw your eyes out to win for him.

The difference is one of professionalism and maturity.

The question now is will the UGA players grow up and deliver for their embattled coach? Will they discipline themselves, cut out the off field crap and beat Tennessee? Can they stop dancing on the field long enough to realize what is at stake for their coach, university and state?

A further meltdown and coaching change will set the program back years. Oh sure it worked out at Alabama, but lets review a few names. Shula-Price-Frachione-Dubose. It didn't happen overnight and it wouldn't here either.

UGA players, your friend is in trouble. Time to grow up.

Saturday - A good news, bad news day.

Posted by Mike
Okay so Saturday was a good news, good news, bad news and finally “are you kidding me?, another fumble?”, kind of day.

Let's do the good news first:

Good news - FLORIDA LOST! I wonder if poor little Urban will have another panic attack and curl up in a fetal position sucking his thumb.

Okay Alabama looks like a strong football team. They can run the ball at will. They tackle and play good special teams. No gimmick plays or jerseys needed!

They just line up and beat your fanny.

Good news – Georgia Tech won. Okay so it was 24-20 over Wake Forrest. The point is a FBS team from the State of Georgia won a football game.

The Jackets are not the team they were last season, and now are in a race to rebuild. Who will get there first The Jackets or Dawgs?

Bad news – The Braves are tied for the Wild Card and no longer control their own destiny. A win today coupled with a San Diego loss will still get us in the playoffs. The Padres, however, have not been cooperating and are on the verge of sweeping the Giants.

A Braves win and a Padre win will set off all sorts of playoff scenarios. The Giants and Padres will first meet to decide their Division Title, then the Braves will get the loser. The Giants would come to Atlanta, Braves would travel to play the Padres.

If the Braves lose today, and Padres win its over. If we both lose the Braves will travel overnight to play San Diego on Monday.

First I'll go to church and include the Braves in a long prayer list, then I'll be sitting on the edge of the sofa for a few hours.

Bad news – A fumble on a potential game winning drive? A fumble? On a game winning drive? I am not going to write anything else until I can collect my thoughts and evaluate the situation. The only thing I will say again is:

Are you kidding me?!!
