Tue, 10 Jan 2017 22:05:44 +0000I thought the game itself came down to two things: first was Bama failing to capitalize on Clemson turnovers. Alabama’s ability to convert turnovers into scores (often without the offense taking the field!) became the stuff of legends this year. They created two turnovers in this game – both on Clemson’s end of the field. […]
Sun, 04 Dec 2016 22:15:10 +0000Georgia will face TCU in the Liberty Bowl in Memphis at noon on Friday, December 30. ESPN will televise the game. This matchup had been the consensus among most bowl projections since last weekend, and none of Saturday’s results did anything to change the placement of SEC teams. Georgia is undefeated in three previous meetings […]
Thu, 24 Nov 2016 00:05:08 +0000“They are looking for chunk plays. You want to make them drive it through. They do; they are very methodical. They manage their down and distances really well, and they stay ahead of chains, it makes them tough to stop. So every time you try to give them a negative play or do something to […]
Wed, 23 Nov 2016 23:29:09 +0000I spent most of Saturday's game entertaining a four-year-old at his first Georgia game, and that kind of sums up the crowd that ranged from disinterested to, well, absent. It's unfair to the players who are expected to perform at a certain level regardless of the opponent or juice from the stands, but it was a welcome change to be a little bored at a home game. The performances of McKenzie, Chubb, and the secondary notwithstanding, you're not going to hear this game celebrated for years to come. On the other hand, it won't be a game like Nicholls or Vandy that will provoke nausea just by mentioning the opponent's name.
Thu, 17 Nov 2016 04:49:26 +0000Man, we needed that. It hasn’t been an especially cheery time at Sanford Stadium lately, and it had been about a year since the last SEC home win. Georgia was in danger of going winless against SEC competition at home, and the Dawgs faced long odds to avoid a losing conference record in Kirby Smart’s […]
Fri, 11 Nov 2016 12:00:38 +0000There's one common attribute for Georgia's leading tackler in each of the past six games.
Fri, 11 Nov 2016 11:30:04 +0000Tyler Catalina transferred in from Rhode Island and moved right into the starting left tackle position to replace a 5* multi-year starter and NFL draft pick. It hasn't been a smooth season, but Catalina wouldn't trade the experience. If anything, he'd like another year to develop after adjusting to the speed of the college game at its highest level. I'll say this: I'm glad Catalina is here.
Fri, 11 Nov 2016 11:00:53 +0000The 2015-2016 Lady Dogs season ended with a first-round NCAA Tournament exit after a 21-10 season and a 6th-place finish in the competitive SEC. How will they fare this season after losing four talented seniors?
Wed, 09 Nov 2016 13:23:42 +0000I don't think this game was a corner-turn in the sense that we'll look back and track how different things were after the Kentucky game. It was very much in character with the rest of the season: talented but flawed defense, inconsistent but occasionally brilliant QB play, a mixed bag on special teams, and an offense that went as its running game went. No, it wasn't a program-changing win over a ranked rival (hopefully we can write about one of those next week.) Instead, it was a gut check after some very disappointing losses. We can talk later about how the goals for the season have changed in a bad way, but it looks at the very least as if Georgia's bowl streak will live on.
Fri, 04 Nov 2016 21:13:54 +0000When a sitting assistant coach uses a term like “mutiny” to describe the coaching staff at the end of the 2015 season, it’s fair to say that it was on the players to hold things together after a bad loss in Jacksonville. To their credit, they did hold things together, and Georgia closed the season […]
Wed, 02 Nov 2016 21:08:00 +0000There was no 95-yard kick return or blocked punt or kickoff fielded on the 3. There were no explosive, back-breaking Florida plays: the Gators had no run longer than 12 yards and no reception longer than 21 yards. Georgia, for the second straight game, didn’t turn the ball over. In fact, they – once again […]
Wed, 26 Oct 2016 13:37:13 +0000Isaiah McKenzie spoke yesterday about the 4th-and-1 against Vanderbilt and his overall role in the offense. The play didn’t fail because of anything he did or didn’t do, but he still dwells on it and can’t wait for an opportunity for redemption. I hope he gets it. McKenzie’s production in both the passing and rushing […]
Wed, 26 Oct 2016 13:09:54 +0000This post by Senator Blutarsky last week really resonated, and since we’ve come off a bye week we’ve had nothing but time to think about it. Even once you get past the obvious response (winning is more fun than losing), the “chore” description still seems apt. The tie-in to last season is especially appropriate and […]
Mon, 10 Oct 2016 17:32:27 +0000Georgia and South Carolina were able to get their game in this weekend, but LSU and Florida still have business to attend to. While it’s still a possibility that the game won’t be played at all, SEC commissioner Greg Sankey maintains that “it’s important to play that game.” The sticking point of course is finding […]
Thu, 06 Oct 2016 16:33:04 +0000While the running game was the big beneficiary of Georgia's adjustments on offense against Tennessee, one other consequence was the role of the tight ends. The wider formations meant a lot less of the three-TE sets favored when Georgia attempted to establish a power running game earlier in the year.
