  1. Men vs. Georgia

    I hate to admit it, but I haven't seen a game yet this year, and haven't really followed BB in years, but hearing the hype of this year's team, and seeing the UGA game on the TV menu tonight I went ahead and flipped on the game right after all time - WOW is all I can say. Extremely impressed. I can see me tuning in a lot more now.
  2. Demographic Curiosity

    Thank you! I always considered it a blessing to be able to serve my country. Thank you for your service as well!
  3. Demographic Curiosity

    46 Male Currently live in West TN, near Jackson, but I've had the opportunity to live in over 20 cities / states throughout my life. Definitely lived in the state of TN the longest (Knoxville, Murfreesboro - twice, and now here). Started at Auburn in 89 and graduated in 94. Got to take a short break in the middle courtesy of Saddam Hussein and Uncle Sam. Served for quite a while in the Army, but have been working in manufacturing ever since.
  4. Stidham Returning

    Great news. I think the O will only get better..
  5. Jeremy Johnson lands coaching job

    Best of luck to him, glad to hear it!
  6. The great debate

    Agreed, sorry for not being clear. What I was trying to say was if they didn't have traction issues for the SECCG, why would you change shoes for the bowl game? I guess it was for the looks. I thought they did look sharp, but not at the expense of performance.
  7. The great debate

    I gotta go with this as well. What seems odd to me is it didn't seem like we had any problems in the SECCG, so what / why would they have changed?
  8. Stop the BIG contracts.

    I agree that 7 years is a bit long, but can certainly understand why you'd want at least 4-5 for recruiting. However I think the market (i.e. the coaches and agents) are moving more in this direction due to the number of coaches being fired 2-3 years into every contract. If I were a coach, with the kind of job security they have I'd be pushing for these types of contracts too.
  9. What was the “tell”

    I saw / heard them call shots at least a couple of times, and noticed they were wrong a few times as well. Would love someone to do an actual objective analysis to see whether or not it is statistically true.
  10. Kerryon Johnson to Enter NFL Draft

    Hate it for us, but wish him nothing but the very best. He is a stud, played his heart out and always seemed to represent himself and the university well. We have a lot of depth at RB, there should be a wide open competition for the role. I don't expect Pettway to be back, but one can hope. Given his track record though I wouldn't put too many eggs in that basket. I really hope we develop multiple backs and take note of how UGA uses multiple RBs or the way we did we Caddy and Ronnie Brown.
  11. Season in review

    Good post. After watching our OL line yesterday, I'm not so sure we'll take a step back next year, we were that bad... Agree with this. Unless you have a very inexperienced QB, like maybe JS in the first few games, I think you have to give the QB the option to audible out of a disaster in the making.
  12. Season in review

    Sure you could, we could have lost both games. If someone want to talk about negative recruiting on our staff, regardless of how it turns out, we will be the only team to have beat whoever won the NC this year. Do I think that is a great position, nope, but it could be much worse.

    Out of likes, but this post deserves one.
  14. irritation about our fan base

    What I saw yesterday was an OL that got handled. I don't care what type of plays you want to call, if you get beat on the OL it doesn't matter what type of plays you call. I get there are some teams that you have to scheme for to try to offset mismatches - UCF should not have been one of those games. Our OL should have been able to executed whatever plays were called, except they lacked one thing a coach can't do for them - want it. I don't expect a coach to re-write a playbook for every opponent, and I assume that you aren't aaying that either, but you aren't going to install enough wrinkles week in and week out to look like a whole new team every time you play. There were wrinkles for the game yesterday but they are not huge, and whether or not they were executed could be another story. Every team will have an identity or theme that will remain consistent. However, I am not completely disagreeing with you on the fact that our play calling is too stubborn when things aren't working. You mention that the announcers we're calling our plays before we ran them, and I assume you are referring to the relationship between where the RB and QB line up, right? If so, I would also ask that you recognize they were also wrong on several of those "calls". Just because they made a call, doesn't mean they were right.
  15. irritation about our fan base

    Are you saying you feel people only give effort / do their best / have pride when thier "job is on the line" or they are threatened? For your sake, I hope your boss doesn't perscribe to that theory, and if you perscribe to that I sure hope you aren't a manager.
