So about this Bryan Allen loser

What a piece of shit..scum of the earth… Hey you’re gonna wave some cash around a college kid and get some autographs, i get it, its shady and you know you’re not supposed to but… but you gotta eat.

It takes a totally different kind of worm to do that and then 1) make a video of it. 2) say you dont want any money from it but just that everyone should know. 3) talk a kid into doing something they shouldnt, then after profiting from it try to ruin his career. and 4) shop the video around, contact several media outlets trying to see how much money you can make, and then complain that you dont want your name released.

What a piece of work… heard he’s a florida fan to boot.  He deserves the beating that is surely coming his way

I have one question for the NCAA… on UGA fan day, we had to pay $25 dollars to come in and get autographs from the UGA players… but if gurley does that on his own, he gets suspended?  They gotta change that.

Well that’s good news… at least we got Douglas

Don’t worry folks, Brendan Douglas has made the most of his carries this year since marshall/michel went down… I think we are fine… Thanks coaching staff.  8 attempts 47 yards.

Now the NCAA is ridiculous, and this rule (if that’s all it was) needs to be changed.  Players should be able to sell their stuff/autographs to whoever they want… at least UGA will be one of the poster children of getting that rule changed, not like that helps us…We weren’t going to win a national championship this year regardless but the thing that disappoints me the most is that all of America was waiting for this to happen, for our heisman finally slip up just like everyone else on our team…. well they got what the wanted

we’ll get em next year… start ramsey now

Clash of the Titans, week 6 predictions

What a great weekend in the SEC… I think the home teams are gonna feast… 5-1 or maybe even 6-0

Florida 17 – Tennessee 27
Worley > Driskel.  Home field Advantage.  Butch Jones > Agent Muschamp

Texas A&M 31 – Miss State 38
Although the Aggie victories look weaker by the week, I do think they are a good team.  But Dak Prescott is solid and the aggie secondary wont be able to tackle him should he get thru.

Alabama 24 – Ole Miss 20
I’m just not sure the rebs are quite ready, but they could pull it out. Sims hasn’t really travelled yet, but will the Ole Miss fans have anything left in the tank after what may be the best tailgate ever.

Vandy 10 – Georgia 37
Put me in the group that wants to see Ramsey get some playing time this week.  But really shoring up the defense another game is more important.  I’d also like to see Tramel Terry get a few more reps in the backend… could it get any worse?

LSU 20 – Auburn 30
I’ll watch it but I don’t have to like it.  It would take a ridiculous game out of LSU QB Harris to take this one… doubt it.

South Carolina 27 – Kentucky 30
I really liked Kentucky before those suspensions this week but I still think they pull it out.  South Carolina is past the must-win phase and UK is full of confidence and playing at home.

Should be some good ones.

Sandstorm Prediction: this kool-aid tastes good

I’ll keep this short and sweet.  I was worried about this game a few days ago, and why not be.  Carolina always plays us tough, Spurrier hates us, their young team has improved a bit since A&M, our WRs are really thin, and it’s on the road.  But this team is different.  We finally have a defensive coordinator worth his paycheck and this team has a swagger about them that has been absent since 2007.  I mean sure this could end up being “same ole Georgia” when the season is all said and done, but I just don’t see it.  There are too many leaders and hungry coaches on this team to let that happen. I can’t wait to watch this team develop.  After watching Carolina’s first 2 games I was not impressed by them at all.  Offense, Defense, Special Teams… I feel we overmatch them in every aspect. Take your pick on who is going to have a big day; Herrera racking up 15+ tackles on stuffing the run, Mckenzie likely returning more than one punt, Mason proving to everyone that he too can throw all over a terrible secondary… or perhaps the best player in the country continuing his Heisman campaign?

I was one the few people that predicted a double digit win over Clemson and I’m expecting the same thing here.  Dawgs 38 – Chickens 17.

Hey look, another Clemson Prediction!

Here we go, I know game week is finally here because I barely have an appetite.  We keep hearing about how camp is different this year, let’s hope so.  Here’s a few things to look for.

Dawgs on Offense:  In case you didn’t know the Dawgs have a pretty good offense this year.  The key in this game will be if Theus and company can contain Vic Beasley and that stout D-line.  Obviously Todd Gurley will get his touches and go over 100 yards (likely 150+), but Mason will have to make a few third down throws and I expect Bennett and Conley to each have solid openers.  Watch for Brendan Douglas to make the most of his few carries as he looks over his shoulder at the young kids.  I think the only way we could lose this game is if our offense repeatedly coughs up the ball but I don’t see that happening.  I think their defense forces one fumble out of Mason… but little else.

Dawgs on Defense:  Yeah, yeah, yeah the secondary.  I too am worried about starting young guys and a walk-on.  Well lucky for us Clemson is breaking in 2 new quarterbacks.  I think the strength of our front seven will pressure them enough to help the young secondary.  The crowd, the linebackers, and the lack of skill players on Clemson’s offense lead me to think the tigers will not put up many points.  With all the hype that Floyd is getting… watch for Jordan Jenkins to blow the doors off.

Welcome to the show:  Lorenzo Carter, Isaiah Mckenzie, Aaron Davis.  Lots of new guys to choose from but I believe Lorenzo Carter will have the biggest impact of the new guys.  I think Carter will have 4 or 5 tackles and make one crowd roaring sack or tackle for loss.  Part of me is picking Carter just because I want Isaiah Mckenzie to make his presence felt against South Carolina where I think we will need him more.

Ace up our sleeve:  Could go for a player here but I think the key to our victory is Jeremy Pruitt.  Pruitt’s defense annihilated Clemson last year… and that was in death valley against Sammy Watkins.  Pruitt is going to throw out multiple 5 defensive back sets, so you got to figure someone will be in position make a play in the back.  If Clemson’s defense is as good as everyone says then it bodes well for us that Pruitt is going to shut down their offense.

Prediction:  Maybe Clemson’s defense is good (although they did give up 30+ points and major yards against all 4 ranked opponents last year), but they are going to be on the field the whole game.  The energy from the crowd is going to get this team rolling.  Georgia 34 – Clemson 16

 

**Bonus Trivia** Herschel Walker had 1 career pass attempt while at UGA… it was a 45 yard interception return.

 

“There’s some plays that we took off last year…”

“There’s some plays that we took off last year and coach Pruitt’s not having that this year… he expects everyone to give 100%”

-Ramik Wilson… fox sports preview show.

I know Wilson is listed as 2nd string on today’s depth chart.  Maybe Pruitt has seen someone “take off” some plays in practice… or maybe he really is more hurt than we think.  Either way, we’re stacked at linebacker.

Clemson RB out for season, Mike Davis also hurt?

I don’t know if you saw but Clemson running back Zac Brooks is out for the season after an injury sustained in practice Monday.  He is by no means a stud but he was the most veteran RB on their roster (by yardage) and was the favorite to start between the hedges..  Stats here:

In other state of South Carolina RB news.  Mike Davis has not been practicing of late and Spurrier is acting like ole Spurrier saying that he isn’t even sure if Davis will start next Thursday.   Dude will be out there I believe, but maybe he will be ailing a bit by the time the Dawgs come to town.

23 years and counting

You know the SEC gets ragged on again and again for not leaving the south.  Georgia, LSU, and Tennessee leave on a regular basis it seems like but every SEC hater always wants to bring up the non-conference schedules of the teams that stay home from year to year.  But every year Florida falls into that category.  It has been 23 years since the Florida gators left the state of Florida for an out of conference game.  In 1991 the gators went to New York to play Syracuse… and lost.  Perhaps it’s smart to never leave, perhaps not, the emphasis on strength of schedule to the playoff committee will tell.  Either way props to Florida for being the headliner of a major argument against the SEC.  As if I needed another reason to hate them.
If memory serves, the Dawgs have travelled to Oklahoma State, Colorado, Arizona State, and Clemson since 2008.  I don’t want to hear anyone talk bad about us.

*bonus trivia*… Tennessee is the only SEC school to have never had an 8-loss season.  Will this be the year?  (@Oklahoma, Alabama, @Ole Miss, @Georgia, @USCe, Florida, Missouri, @Vandy, Kentucky, Utah State, on the schedule)  How many wins do you see there…

 

 

“The playoff was created to keep 2 SEC teams out of the national championship”

ESPN analyst Tom Luginbill said that a few weeks ago.  The more I think about it the more I think he’s right.  The NCAA committee hasn’t said that they will only take conference champions into the new 4 team playoff… but I’m starting to think this may be a bit of an unwritten rule.  I know they want to really put an emphasis on schedule strength, which is great for us, but at the end of the day we can only have 1 conference champion.

I believe the SEC would have had 2 teams in the playoff 7 of the last 8 years if you go by the top 4 in the BCS standings.  But is that going to matter now?  Would the committee really put a one loss South Carolina or Georgia in the playoff over a 1 loss conference champion from the Big 10 or ACC?  I would hope so, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

In a related note, we need to pull for a bunch of 1 loss conference champions this year and hope they leave out the Big 12 champ, forcing them to grab a few teams and reestablish their conference championship game.  Imagine if every division in the NFL had a division title game except for 1.  That would be ridiculous, and that’s what’s happening right now in college football.
