watch or read anything about his personal life or interactions with his players or basically anything except his pressers and you'll see he's a very personable guy. hell, that's why he's a master recruiter.

He doesn't have to recruit.

beated texas in the rose bowl to win the title and sending the horns on a 10 year spiral? i'm down for that.

You totally get the vibe I put out.  And spun it the wrong way of course.

Your ours next time.  We'll be back.

As UGA is playing Texas, already, I'll provide a short summary of the Dawgs as I see them:

QB - Fromm is very accurate, has experience now, does a lot of play action on first down, and will audible.
RBs - Two very good ones, very similar to Chubb and Michel last season.
OL - Now that it is getting healthy, very solid, especially at center.
WRs - a good group, a lot of choices, Hardman is small but very elusive in space.

Overall, had one bad game at LSU and late against Bama, but usually scores 35-40.

DL - OK, they play a 3-4.  Teams have run on the Dawgs this year.
LB - Pretty good, they miss Smith from last year.
Secondary - strength of the defense, one first rounder on the outside.

Special teams - Hotrod is very good at PK, nearly every kickoff not returned and can hit from 55 yards insdoors, the punter is a freshman.

Here’s Texas

QB Ehlinger is better than he used to be but prone to injury

RB Ingraham is better (more talented) but Watson is better (on the field)

OL Same six played all year. Guaranteed to miss blocks and get penalties 

WR weakness of team, undersized, slow and unathletic

Overall our offensive goal is to score one point more than the opposition so often in the the 3rd and 4th quarters we call 3 and outs so the opposition can catch up

DL Charles Omenihu

LB Gary Johnson

Secondary mostly inexperienced but we do have an older player guaranteed to get a penalty on every play

Special teams we have a kicker named Dicker

Summary we’re not very good.  I don’t imagine we’ll win by more than 28-7.

Georgia leans towards their rushing game where as the Horns favor passing

This aspect should help the Horns as they do pretty good against the rush

Our QB likes to run and will do so until he gets hurt or scores which ever comes first

Although the Horns favor passing they can run the ball and will do so until stopped



They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

UGA's best player will be out prepping for the NFL (I don't blame him).  Cover corner on D.  Won some award.

Justin Fields is practicing with the team.  He's the backup FR QB who has talked about departing (which he probably should as Fromm is a soph and going nowhere soon).  

Starting RB (usually) is Evander Holyfield's son.  His nephew lives in our building (he's about 8).  Supposed Elijah (the RB) comes around at times.  He is a real load to tackle and has speed enough to get outside, much like Chubb last season).  

No clue about the team's psyche.

Garrett Gilbert who has possibly never started a game in the NFL has a job in the NFL while Vince Young who was 30-17 as a starter does not.  Not to mention Colin Kaepernick.
I don't want to get political and step on the toes of sensitive souls who imagine they're not snowflakes but that the opposition is, but...
maybe LeBron made a valid observation about NFL owners.
Or maybe life just isn't fair.

as for Kapernick there are too many black QBs for race to be the cause
might be that owners dont want players who piss off the fans
Vince had the misfortune of having an asshole for a HC

VY had Jeff Fisher who has been proven to bring out the worst of any QB.   Jeff Goff, Case Keenum, Nick Foles, etc...

Once VY got fed up and threw his shoulder pads, I honestly believe he was blackballed.

The Kaepernick issue is too deep to get into here.

I think the millionaires who own NFL teams are a lot like kids with marbles.  In a lot of respects they're childish, petty, immature and misguided but it's their marbles so whatever.

Vick, a convicted felon who abused animals, made a comeback but VY threw his pads and was blackballed. Cool story bro. 

I thought Vince was a great player. He had his chances with other teams like the Eagles and Green Bay. Hell, he even tried a comeback last year or maybe the year before. 

It’s like me saying Johnny was blackballed because he missed a few meetings and roughed up some chick. 

They met they enemy, and the enemy was themselves.

Apples and oranges.

I don’t believe I’ve ever criticized Johnny Manziel and you won’t see me start here.  I was a partier at his age too (& much older) but, of course, I didn’t possess his amazing talent or the curse of scrutiny that went with it.

His misfortune was the Cleveland freaking Browns- possibly the only thing in the NFL more toxic than Jeff Fisher.

Both VY and Manziel were screwed by circumstances and as fans we were much worse off because of it.

Meanwhile crap QBs still have jobs.

I've never criticized VY or Colt McCoy either (even though most Aggies hate them both).  Whatever issues VY had finally did him in, or at least outweighed his benefits he brought on the field.

So you think VY and Manziel both suffered the consequences of their own mistakes, while I believe they both suffered the consequences of being tied to two of the most toxic entities in the NFL.  Yeah, Andy Reid, an NFL renegade gave VY one more chance, much like he had Michael Vick but VY threw more picks withe Eagles than ever before.  So yeah, maybe in the narrow narrative of that particular opportunity he did suffer the consequences of his own mistake.  Every signing after that was a joke that lasted a minute.

I still say we as fans lost a lot when the NFL wrote them off.

Speaking of the NFL, my son and I are going to drown our semifinal sorrows by taking in the Browns-Ravens game tomorrow.  His first NFL game, and only my second.  

Since Baltimore is the only local team I, as a Dallas fan, can half stand (the other nearby options are the Redskins and Eagles - double shudder!) I’m kind of cheering for them to win and go to the playoffs.  Then again I’m also looking forward to seeing Baker play and hope he has a big day.

Congratulations to the Horns.

That capped off a Big 12 vs. SEC bowl-game record of 3-1.  Sorry to say, Oklahoma was the one loser.  At least two of the winners--UT and OSU--were double-digit underdogs.

In the past two years, no SEC teams have scored more than 16 points on Georgia in the 1st half.  Oklahoma scored 31 last year, and Texas scored 20 tonight.

Bama is clearly THE dominant program of the last 10+ years.  But that doesn't automatically rub off on every other SEC team.  They put their pants on--even if they are wearing silver britches--one leg at a time.

Good to see you, CW.

Did you happen to catch Tom Herman’s last press conference before the Sugar Bowl?

Someone asked him if Georgia was the best opponent he’s seen on tape.  He said I don’t know.  Our rival to the north is pretty danged good and we respect the heck out them.
