The UGA Facebook Diatribe

My wife is almost 4 months pregnant, and she made convinced me to stay at home and watch the UGA versus GaTech game on TV this past weekend. Instead of posting my rants on this blog as the game went on, Facebook felt the wrath of my anger and joy throughout the contest. Sunday, I found it extremely entertaining to go back and read my Facebook wall and the comments that were made by me and some of my friends. It was so interesting to re-hash my Facebook play-by-play that I thought you may enjoy a few of the quotes/comments as well.

Over half of my posts have been omitted:

Look at that white boy runnnnnnnnnnnnn! Woof Woof Woof!

Rambo bringin' the hamma!

When your QB is 7/8 for 158yds and 2 TDs...what should you do?

Wow, how do you get the ball spotted in the exact same place when you just gained 2 feet?

Shocking news Dawg fans: We throw the ball again and move it straight down the field! Murray is the MAN!

Mike Bobo, that may have been the best designed running play I have seen from UGA in 3 years!

Why do they even have instant replay in college football? What a JOKE!

If they give that fumble back to them, I am going to be LIVID!

Richt is going to get fired based on the shear fact that he is a "timeout MORON"! Someone tell him there is a whole quarter of football left in a TIGHT GAME!

Apparantly it is now legal to tackle someone by their facemask in PLAIN SIGHT!

God must have seen it too!

Conventional wisdom says to run the ball right now. REALITY says that they haven't stopped our passing game ALL DAY LONG!

Todd Grantham is NOT earning 1/12 of his $750,000 salary tonight!


Sarah, if we lose this game, hide all of the sharp objects in the house!

Go for it, we can't stop them anyways!

To all of my neighbors, I am sorry for that barking incident that just occurred outside of my front door.

Is it just me, or does Josh Nesbitt look like he is 42 years old?

I could go on and on, but I do have a job to get to in the morning!

I Finally Understand Mike Bobo's Playcalling

It just dawned on me what Mike Bobo was doing in the 4th quarter tonight. I couldn't figure out for the life of me why we stopped trying to score and just tried to milk the clock, but now I know why. Mike Bobo is obviously not allowed to watch what the opponents offense is doing during the course of the game. Therefore, he thought we surely had a comfortable lead the way we were torching them with Murray's great passing. Coach Richt, it's only fair that you let Bobo know when Georgia Tech is matching us score for score, so he doesn't look like an idiot and run it up the middle three times in a row at such a crucial moment.

Washaun Ealey, RUN This State Tonight

Last year, Washaun Ealey made it clear that the kid can bring it (20 carries, 183 yards) in the Clean Old Fashion Hate game. This year has been disappointing as far as his production and off the field problems. I have yet to back off my opinion that the kid is a potential 1,200 yard back in the SEC. Will he do it next year? I think so.

None-the-less, barring his fumbleitous returning, I predict we will see 100+ yards from Ealey again tonight. As with the season, the running game was strange this year. I attribute some of it to an under-performing line, much of it to not having AJ from the start, a LOT of it to play calling, and the rest to the football gods.

Hopefully the kid will be back in true fashion for 2011!

Dawgs, It's Time To Play With Your Hair On Fire

I fully expect the Dawgs to come out pissed off tonight, and handle the Yellow Jackets like we should. This year has been one of the more disappointing years in my few decades as a rabid Dawg fan.

Who even really cares about a bowl game at this point? It is my opinion that a team with 6 losses doesn't deserve to play in a bowl game anyways. Today, it's all about pride, and coming together as a Dawg team with twice, hell, THREE times that talent as the nerds!

I'm not big on making these bold predictions, mainly because of the jinx, but I say DAWGS 45 - NERDS 13!

Earn that paycheck tonight Grantham!

Mike Bobo and the Bama OC

Is it just me, or did it look like Mike Bobo started calling plays for Alabama in the second half against Auburn?

Awesome Job Hoop Dawgs!

If nothing else, Mark Fox has a resilient team out on the court. Once Trey Tompkins gets his game legs under him, and they gel as a team, we could cause havoc in the league. It's nice to root for an under Dawg for a under dog with a chance at winning something. I hope I can keep this optimism come March!

No NCAA Violation, Really?

I am pretty much done with the NCAA and their impotent investigative powers. How can the NCAA find out that AJ Green did what he did, but then turn around and proclaim innocence on LaMichael James.

I mean, guys from economically disadvantaged families always drive around legally in Range Rovers and Mustangs, right. I'm sure he worked hard and paid for that Range Rover legitimately, while playing major DI football. LOL..I can't wait to hear the bashing I get for this!

Piss on Georgia Tech

I happened to run across another case of the famous Pissing Uga's in my attic while digging out Christmas decorations. The Uga Statue's that I have are pictured below, except for one big difference: all I have left are in RED JERSEYS (black jersey upon request)! I will try to get some new pictures and post them with the red jersey asap. Just send an email or comment on this thread if you are interested. These things make great Christmas gifts for any Dawg fan. I have pictures somewhere of the statue peeing on a Yellow Jacket, Gator, etc.

GO DAWGS, beat the NERDS!

UGA Boise State Playing In 2011, YAYUH!

I waited until the word was semi-official to get too excited about this news. I tend to shy away from bandwagon blogs on purpose, but I had to put my two cents in on this one.

Two of the most popular blogs I have written this past year were pertaining to Boise State. If you missed them, you can read them HERE, and HERE.

I'm not going to lie, I have really started keeping tabs on my blog site statistics, and hit number 100,000 is most likely going to come on this post. I never in my life expected to get that many hits in less than eleven months of blogging!

Anyways, back to my point. Hopefully the Dawgs can get off on the right foot in 2011 and beat a team that has become a household name in college football. The BSU Broncos are a pillar of the rankings for the past several years. Here's to hoping we don't let the SEC down and give BSU fans even more fuel to add to the fire!

Have You Seen This About Cam Newton

I especially love the title: "As The Plains Burn". This guy has seemingly all of the details. The post is lengthy, but it almost looks like it came from the authorities as part of the investigation! It is VERY detailed:

Even A Dawg Fan Has to Laugh At This

Before you get ticked off at me. I am in complete agreement that Auburn's Nick Fairley is TRASH. Evidence is HERE & HERE.

Boys of Fall UGA Style

I'm sure I am not the first to post this on their blog, but I love it, so here it is again!

UGA & The Play Action Pass

The play-action pass, when used effectively, can be one of the most valuable offensive tools in all of football. Notice the phrase when used effectively!

I know a little bit about offense schemes, game plans, play design, and all things related to scoring points. I was a 3 year varsity starter in high school; had a few small college offers in football, but pursued baseball instead. Since college, I've coached football teams from peewee level, up to top ranked high school teams. I've never coached in college because I chose not too. Had I felt the passion to do so, I'm sure I could have, but I guess the world will never know.

That being said, I know a good bit about the play-action pass. Plain and simply put, it is a tool used to freeze linebackers and safeties by getting them to bite on a fake to a potential ball carrier. It works great when you use it sparingly, or at the right time. Hell you can even use it a lot if your running game is gashing the opponent on a consistent basis. The problem with UGA's system is that we use play-action pass on more than 90% of our passes, and even when the running game is a non-factor. It's as if we have certain plays that can only be run out of play-action. Why can't the same plays be executed with the quarterback doing a simple 5-step drop?

Thinking from a quarterback's perspective, I love to throw the ball on a straight 5 step drop. Why? When a quarterback doesn't have to worry about the fake, he gets to focus on the safeties and cornerbacks from the moment the ball is snapped. When faking, a quarterback has to take his eyes off the safeties for a moment, and then take to time to find them again after the fake. This may not seem all that difficult, but any quarterback will tell you it makes a world of difference to have to take your eyes off the secondary, and the look up and find the defenders again. Besides finding the secondary, it makes one hell of a difference when it comes to avoiding the rush. Think about it; wouldn't Aaron Murray have stood a better chance at avoiding Nick Fairley's body slams if he saw him coming a second sooner? Yep.

When I went back and watched the Auburn game a second time, I payed close attention to Fairley on every offensive snap. The kid was rarely, if ever, phased by a play-action fake, nor were the linebackers.

What are your thoughts?

The Worst Of All Nick Fairley Plays

Watching this video just proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that players like Nick Fairley have no business in football until they learn how to be a man. Chicken $hit players like this are worthless.

Watch this video (Auburn Fans) and tell me the guy is a winner. You can clearly see Fairley trying to dig his facemask into Murray's throat and chin.

Danielson, you dumba$$, their helmets are not stuck!

UGA versus Auburn Tickets Outrageous

They say that tickets outside of Jordan-Hare Stadium were going for over $300 a pop! The only person that could afford them was Cam Newton's dad!

Just saying...

Nick Fairley Is TRASH

I hope that the SEC does a review of tonight's game and watches Nick Fairley with a fine toothed comb. I just witnessed him take two of the cheapest shots on a quarterback I have ever seen. Then, I watched him grab Washaun Ealey's nuts on the bottom of a pile. Hopefully I can post the videos later. I hope the NFL is taking notice, and Fairley, you just cost yourself MILLIONS!


Auburn Wins, Goes to 0-11 For The Season.

That's right, I said Z-E-R-O & 11. The Auburn Tigers and sCam Newton have sold their souls to the devil and beat my beloved Dawgs tonight. Mark my word. I don't go out on a limb very often, but the Tigers have been playing an ineligible player this year, and he is AWESOME, but they will forfeit their season when all is said and done.

Am I bitter that he helped to defeat the Dawgs tonight? Not at all. We couldn't stop him because he is one hell of a college football player. I don't think he will be able to do the things he does at the next level, but we'll see.

My deepest concerns pertaining to this whole situation are that he is completely SCREWING Auburn University, and they have gone all-in hoping a miracle keeps the NCAA from ruling sCam as an ineligible player. Cecil Newton solicited money. That negated sCam's amateur status. Put this in your pipe and smoke it too: Auburn paid the kid or his family. Otherwise, why in the hell did he go there instead of Mississippi State at the last minute. How did Cecil's church miraculously come up with 10's of thousands of dollars to make improvement? Why is the IRS and FBI interviewing witnesses? I know why...the rumors are TRUE.

Go Dawgs! That was one hell of a performance against the number "2" team in the nation.

Newton Will Play, Or Won't He?

As a true Dawg fan, I hope that we get the chance to BEAT down the Tigers with Newton on the field tomorrow. Will we? That question may not be as solid of a yes as it was yesterday after all of these facts have come out.

Why does the FBI want to talk to Bond? "They don't want people shopping children around for thousands of dollars," Bond said.

Even if Newton received no money to attend Auburn, soliciting money can be an NCAA violation, jeopardizing Newton's eligibility.

I have stood on the fence as far as passing judgement on this story all week long. Now, I am pretty darn sure that Auburn might be screwed. The NCAA has a reputation of getting pissed off when schools play athletes knowing the $hit is about to hit the fan. If I am AU right now and I know something of fact, I tell the kid he is sitting this one out. We'll see at 3:30 Saturday.

Either way...GO DAWGS, beat the Tigers/Plainsmen/War Eagles/Identity Crisisers

Parking In Athens!

Do you think I could pull this off somewhere in Athens? A man sure can bank on gameday with the right idea! I once had a friend that told me his wrecker service made over $100,000 on a big game day.
Outside England's Bristol Zoo there is a parking lot for 150 cars and 8 buses. For 25 years, its parking fees were managed by a very pleasant attendant. The fees were 1 for cars ($1.40), 5 for buses (about $7). Then, one day, after 25 solid years of never missing a day of work, he just didn't show up; so the Zoo Management called the City Council and asked it to send them another parking agent. The Council did some research and replied that the parking lot was the Zoo's own responsibility. The Zoo advised the Council that the attendant was a City employee. The City Council responded that the lot attendant had never been on the City payroll. Meanwhile, sitting in his villa somewhere on the coast of Spain or France or Italy a man who'd apparently had a ticket machine installed completely on his own and then had simply begun to show up every day, commencing to collect and keep the parking fees, estimated at about $560 per day -- for 25 years. Assuming 7 days a week, this amounts to just over $7 million dollars ...and no one even knows his name.

Cam "Hide Your Laptop" Newton

I have a friend that keeps calling #2 from Auburn, Cam "Heisman" Newton. So, as any good Dawg fan would, I coined the phrase Cam "Hide Your Laptop" Newton. It seems like a much more fitting name to me seeing as how the Heisman trophy is supposedly given to a player that shows this:
“The Heisman Memorial Trophy annually recognizes the outstanding college football player whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence with integrity.”

Due to the fact that this story is absolutely true, Cam Newton is not a Heisman Candidate in my mind.

On the flip side though, how is Corch Meyer justifying letting Chris Rainey play after what he did, but kicked Newton off the team? Oh, how I hate the Gators, and all they stand for!

Auburn Week - Greatest UGA Moments!

My dad and I left Cumming, GA that beautiful fall morning looking forward to seeing some smashmouth SEC football. What we would witness may have been one of my all-time favorite moments in UGA football.

I remember getting to Auburn a few hours early, and the temperature had dropped over 30 degrees from what it was when we left our house. We took a trip to the local Wal-Mart to pick up some thermal underwear, and headed back to Jordan-Hare Stadium. For two hours, we sat in the freezing cold stands, and watched the Tigers man-handle our beloved Bulldogs. Then came....THE CATCH heard round the Bulldawg Nation!

It's moments like these that bring a father and son as close as ever. It's also moments like these that I will bleed red & black until the day I die!

One Way To Defend Cameron Newton

Last night, I was thinking about writing a blog on how the Dawgs might attempt to stop Cam Newton next week, then this story broke.

Maybe, if he is cleared of all that stuff, we can get this chick to stand on the sideline next to him!

I know they it may distract me a bit.

Politics or Football

My love for politics often retracts from my blogging, thus the reason I have been pretty short and sweet for the past several weeks when it comes to I love Georgia Bulldog football with all my heart, but my passion for American politics often trumps the Dawgs.

I know, it's a Bulldawg sin to admit that. I know, I'll just find a way to combine my love for both!

While I'm on the subject, I wonder if Mark Richt is a Democrat or Republican? Nah, I love him either way!

What Do The Last 10 Nat'l Champs Have In Common?

It goes without saying that none of them are my beloved Georgia Bulldogs. Getting past that, at least 80% of these National Champions ran an offensive scheme that people would label as a version of the spread. It comes as no surprise to people that understand offensive football strategy that the game is not "changing", rather, it HAS CHANGED. Check out this list of the past 10 college football national champions:
2000 - Oklahoma
2001 - Miami
2002 - Ohio State
2003 - USC/LSU
2004 - USC
2005 - Texas
2006 - Florida
2007 - LSU
2008 - Florida
2009 - Alabama
Of those 10, I would venture to say that only Alabama's team from last year, and the 2002 Ohio State team ran what one would call an "old fashioned" offensive scheme.

I am using this as a preface to my point. UGA is running an offense that the college game has passed by. Will it still work? Yes, and sometimes the Dawgs do quite well with the scheme we run. But, obviously, it's not leading us to our ultimate goal.

I once read somewhere that Steve Spurrier changes his playbook at least by 20% every single week. What do you guys think? Is it time for the Dawgs to re-vamp the offensive scheme we are running? And, please, do not give me a lecture about how we just finished a streak of scoring 40+ points for 3 consecutive games. I already know about almost every statistic that exists pertaining to UGA football. is not affiliated in any way with the University of Georgia.
