Did not quite understand backed into Johnny Heisman ? They recruited head to head with Oregon and Stanford for Johnny Football, and they signed him. Stanford could have really used him this season.
5 months, 1 week ago on MrSEC.com Commitment Comparator - 12/12/12
Yes Glenn, Texas A and M has taken great advantage of being in The SEC in recruiting. The players in Texas would love to say that they played at home and played against the very best talent in the nation. The crowd at their games, is most clearly an SEC Crowd, as worthy as any program in the nation to be a SEC Crowd. Johnny Heisman was a lot of fun to watch all 2012. Glad I guaranteed that win by him over Alabama, and wish I had not likewise guaranteed our win over Alabama too. SEC East and SEC West have both put up exact equal totals 2012 in every fashion possible. SEC West and SEC East have played dead even 2012. SEC West and SEC East have dead even number of wins over teams making the AP Poll Top 25. And, SEC East can certainly have every hope that Vanderbilt, currently way deserving at # 27 in the AP Poll can make it into the Top 25 with a bowl win. That would give The SEC East 4 Top 25 teams to the only 3 SEC West. Obviously, Alabama and Georgia are dead even. Obviously Florida 2012 has had a better year by far than every SEC West team. And, South Carolina is certainly equivalent to LSU or Texas A and M 2012. But, you are right that Texas has done nothing, in fact you could go further than that and say that The Big XII has done nothing in a long time. I for one am glad Texas A and M joined us, and like you, consider their future success to be great. They have all the ingredients now to compete with Texas, telling the recruits the NFL will be at every game and watch film against every single player they line-up against. Very good observations you have there GlennCampbell, sir.
None of these 3 measures tells the whole entire story, even all 3 combined, now does it ?
The University of Georgia, for example, has 54 scholarship recruits available for the Nebraska game coming up plus 1 transfer-in. This is because of an attrition of 30 scholarship recruits previously given credit to UGA who have transferred-out.
It is important to look at the 5 years' worth of recruiting which make up a team, and to deduct any who are not available for that season for any reason. There could still be a hole in that program's recruiting at a position with a glut at another position. 5 quarterbacks on the roster for example playing only 1 ever for any reason as always, would be a glut, if you have just lost the entire defense after 2012 season, and have needs across the board in a sophisticated defense which takes several years to master by any player.
UGA has 6 who are already practicing with the team for our up-coming Nebraska game, a team who runs the football when we're # 79 in the nation against the run and have lost the only game ever between the 2 programs. These 6 and hopefully 13 more will be signed up for classes in the next 2 weeks, and all of those possible 19 will count toward our 2012 Signing Class, which was way short of the numbers required to be signed, as is obvious.
We have, as you document above, signed up quite a few bodies and have therefore recruited far more of the less than blue-chippers Mark Richt normally gets as a percentage of his total. So, he has released 30 who averaged 3.73 and has replaced the 30 who averaged # 2 best quality in The SEC with the 30 now who are # 5 best quality in The SEC.
This should not be confusing to anyone on any point. We have averaged the # 7 recruiting class averaging both Scout.com and Rivals the Mark Richt era 2001 through 2013 recruiting class, hopefully not totally completed with super recruits to fill the remaining half a dozen available scholarship recruits. This is the 2nd best in the nation, averaging # 7 only to Southern California 2001 through 2013 recruiting classes. This is validated by the fact that Mark Richt has 71 scholarship recruits of his who have gone on to be Drafted by the NFL, and stands to have 11 more after Nebraska who will be Drafted. This too is # 2 best in the nation, again behind only Southern California, and unless Southern California can have 7 drafted themselves after the bowl games, Mark Richt will have taken UGA to the # 1 slot in the nation in scholarship recruits drafted by the NFL.
We beat # 4 Florida this season, and it appears with a bowl win by Vanderbilt, we will have beat 2 teams 2012 who made the Top 25, with Vanderbilt at # 27 today, looking to break into the Top 25. Nebraska at # 23 will drop out of the AP Poll Top 25, if we beat them. The Big 10 is way weak on teams they beat who made the Top 25.
In the Mark Richt era, UGA has beat 20 and lost to 28 who made the AP Poll Top 25. It was better, but we had that run there after beating Georgia Tech in 2009 who made # 13, until we beat # 4 Florida 2012, where we lost 10 in a row. We are positioned now to have a good 2013 in that regard with Aaron Murray having finally his All-America 2013 season and some post season award with our entire offense returning except for 2 wide receivers whom both drop the football frequently in their 4 years for us.
Our Defense 2013, despite 11 who started for us taking their talents to the NFL after the Nebraska game, will be very good. All the 54 scholarship players we have remaining today, have played a lot. They played their hearts out, for example, against # 2 Alabama a few days ago.
How is it that Mark Richt was able to cover-up this DUI for May, June, July and August ?

Mark Richt said 19 July 2012 : “There’s been more attrition the last couple of years than there has been since we’ve been at Georgia.”
Well, let's see now, buddha22, we had 67 scholarship recruits plus one transfer-in remaining of the 107 Mark Richt signed to play our best shot 2012 with a schedule of 1 game against The Five (5) SEC teams in the Coaches' Poll Top 10, but we have to SUBTRACT from that number
(1) Safety Bacarri Rambo facing a four-game drug Suspension when announce
(2) Cornerback Branden Smith at least one game drug Suspension when announce
(3) Inside linebacker Alec Ogletree least one game drug Suspension when announce
(4) Cornerback Sanders Commings Suspended for two games hit girl
(5) Chase Vasser # 9 in the nation strongside LB, DUI 4 months ago, Suspended 2 games at least.
Only problem with that list is that we KNOW 5 failed the NCAA Drug Test during Spring Practice back in April 5 months ago, and we know that Greg McGarity said "ask Mark Richt; he's the one who is holding back information of the Suspensions." So, actually what we have available to play is 67 scholarship recruits plus one transfer-in minus Five (5) we know of and double that number who failed the NCAA Drug Test April.
It is a fair bet that the answer to your question is :

Cuts it. Off-topic my rear end. I sat here and read his post and replied to him, and him alone on his points.
You put it back up and let anyone else decide that that post is OFF-TOPIC as you say. It is not debatable that the post is Off-Topic.
I will be very clear on this with you ecdawg. I have always loved your blogs and pour my heart out in them.
This is my last visit to a censored site, where only opinions agreeing with the subject blog post are allowed.
I do not have to read your blogs.
I happen to be very clear on college football today, and that the sport has not changed. In fact, your author of this blog, offered up that there are MANY like me who feel as I feel that the sport has not changed.
I do not post at censored sites.
I do not read censored sites.

So, who removed the post ?
Didn't want anything up on this blog that did not agree with you that college football has not changed and will not change at all whatsover until if they do something about having more than just only a two-team BCS NC play-off game ?
Small of you.
Very small. Just own up to it please. I am asking.
4 votes of No by any 4 of the 12 SEC and you are not coming here, ever.
What you have done this Century, is put up a losing record against each and every 1 of the 6 BCS Conferences, including the weak Big XII.
Football is the only sport in question. Question is do your fans want to talk about that which you have not done in sometime now and that is be good in football ? Your blogs are not open to replies such as this reply right here, sir. Texas is wrong to say you sound like a screaming brat little brother, who has had your brains kicked-in by all 6 BCS Conferences this entire Century dating back every game for 11 years and counting ?
How is that that you do not sound like that ?
Sure you do.
You assume that 4 of the 12 SEC teams will not vote no. I vote no. I am fairly certain, with the effect on our schedules, that UGA is no. I know South Carolina clearly should be a no. Florida ? Kentucky ?
Mid-pack Big XII team in a weak conference does not translate to a mid-pack SEC program.
You are out-recruited in the state of Texas by The SEC now; that isn't changing. You are the lowest TV ratings of any Texas team, 2 hours from Houston and 2 hours from Dallas. You get your brains beat in by everyone.
Your 12th Man is a joke. He played for your team all season that year. Then, quit to play basketball. Then, you had the bowl game and called up to him on the PA. He came down. You did NOT play him. That's a tradition ?
When you get over yourselves, and have blogs that allow people to tell it like it is, like Texas fans saying you act like a petulant child, you will realize you are no fit for The SEC, none at all.
Thank you for your interest in becoming the 13th Team in The SEC. Who are you bringing with you ? Without an answer to that and what it means to UGA's football schedule (I don't and neither does anyone else care about the other sports.), you bring nothing.
Not the # 7 SEC team, that is UGA and you don't measure up.
Don't let the door hit you on the backside on the way out.
1 year, 9 months ago on Mr. Slive, I've got A&M holding on line 13. | August
I just cannot believe that Texas A and M actually has fans who watch the games, nor will travel as they get their brains kicked-in by The SEC. They are, you know, 39 percent winning percentage all-time vs The SEC.
This Century, 2000 to present Texas A and M :
42 wins 46 losses vs weak Big XII
1 win 3 losses vs weak ACC
1 win 3 losses vs weak Big East
0 wins 1 loss vs weak Big 10
0 wins 1 loss vs weak PAC 10
0 wins 6 losses vs SEC they want to join
For what ?
To get their brains kicked in ?
Losing Record to all 6 BCS Conferences this century.
Where do they get off that that is SEC caliber ?
By their own admissions, they are # 7 or so in The SEC.
We want to break up our conference on account of them ?
I don't think so.
They are worse than Boise State vs the 6 BCS Conferences this Century.
Do you know what that record is this Century vs the 6 BCS Conferences ?
44 wins and 60 losses vs the 6 BCS Conferences this Century for Texas A and M.
42 percent winning percentage.
Do you honestly think there are 25 million TV sets who tune in to watch Texas A and M play football ?
There is something holding it back, isn't there ? I have explained that it is 2 solid hours of - maybe realistically 3 - driving from Houston to College Station. I've done it. I know. It is no different going to College Station from Dallas Fort Worth. Again, I have been headquartered there. I know. It is 2 hours from everywhere to College Station. 25 million people. A team who actually is # 52 in wins starting 2000. Who watches them now ? Who in Texas watches them, now ? Do you know the answer is not what you want to hear. People don't like watching a team lose.
Take me for example.
I think everyone would agree that I have had it up to here.
Boise State. I mean those guys don't belong on the same football field as us. When I say 32-18 I am factoring in fumbles by our offensive running backs etc. Why can I name 16 games like that where we have the superior talent, that we have lost in 10 years to-date ? Someone answer Orson Charles tonight, please.
Why 9 losses in 12 games vs teams finishing in the Top 10 in 10 years ?
I cannot speak for South Carolina, nor Texas A and M. Those fans, quite obviously, don't give a crud that neither program ever does a thing.
But, let's go further in-depth into the Texas A and M fanbase from home and find out how many of them keep tuning in to watch Texas A and M, lose.
11 years of losing. Sorry, # 7 in the Big XII becomes # 7 in The SEC. Or, # 8. I think we are # 7, right ?
Our fans tune in. We watch. We stand outside the Georgia Dome without tickets in the rain. We do go to our JAX games. And, we go to Shreveport, don't we ?
We wake up in the morning and actually read Orson Charles say we will win the NC this season, why not he asks ?
I just cannot believe that Texas A and M actually has fans who watch the games, nor will travel as they get their brains kicked-in by The SEC. They are, you know, 39 percent winning percentage all-time vs The SEC.
The SEC out-recruits Texas A and M in Texas. So does everyone else.
Arrogance by Texas A and M has them in this position today.
They have egg on their face.
And, I called it.
Socrates B. Kronasecdawg
"Nine of the 12 must actually want to accept the new member."
While everyone is excited about talking about Texas A and M because obviously Texas A and M wants in The SEC now, when they turned us down less than a year ago; I find it hard to believe that UGA would not be one of the schools who would reject them. Auburn ? I don't see it written in stone anywhere that Auburn would be moved to the East. Vanderbilt, that is one that could be lost to the West. I mean, let's be real here. We have loads of problems explaining it to our own players such as Orson Charles on ESPN tonight, why for whatever reason, if we don't beat South Carolina in game 2, Mark Richt's coaching staff will not have a winning record vs The SEC East over the then that night, the last Six (6) years.
Would South Carolina vote for Texas A and M ?
For grins, let's just say those 2 say no.
Give me 2 more names of 2 more schools then and you have no Texas A and M no matter what else is said by whomever, and no matter what TV sets turn on to watch Texas A and M - or, not.
I am not saying it is not good for Texas A and M. It is.
I am asking who are 4 schools who would vote no to Texas A and M ? Find 4 and nothing else on this topic means anything.
With Vanderbilt subject to West anyway and clearly some great team moves to The SEC East, I think all of us should be asking the same question as me : And, that is what would the alignment be before I vote ?
Texas A and M, by their own admissions is about 6 or 7 in The SEC 12 right now, and that isn't going to change. Mid-pack. For the odd number 13. Who is 14 ? Bring Choke-la-homa and I would vote for Texas A and M in a heartbeat.
Texas A and M ?
Just say no and be done with it.
Orson Charles likes Kool-Aid.
I'd like to see us do something about 16 losses stuck in my craw today against teams of far lesser talent than us. I'd like to see us do something about 9 of 12 losses to the truly great teams we have too.
Shuffle it all up, man up and play Alabama every year.
Not all of us are that delusional.
Are we ?
Who are the 3 who do not want to add
Yes, Socrates, I have never thought much of Tom Lemmings rankings, nor is ESPN ever recognized for their evaluations of high school football players.
I tend to think that Scout.com does a far better job of evaluating the players.
I offer up as example 2006.
I choose 2006, because those players today, are not any longer in college as their redshirt year plus the 4 years of eligibility plus one more year for the very few granted a 6th year of eligibility.
2006 Scout.com Top 100 (there are 44 on page 1 then hit next page bottom) :
I think you will find that Scout.com is a source to actually quote on their player evaluations coming out of high school and their Top 100 overall players. I have always felt it is better to not look at 5-Star or 4-Star nor look at their Top 100 status, but look at their rankings per position nationally. If a player is listed by Scout.com as one of the very top at their position Knowshon Moreno and Matthew Stafford, for example, then they are more than likely going to contribute in college and probably be drafted by the NFL and probably make a 53-man roster.
Over the last 5 years, there have been 21 Top 100 Scout.com UGA recruits, 51 either 5-Star or 4-Star recruits, an average number of stars for all the last 5 UGA classes of 3.58 stars and average overall ranking for all 5 classes 2007-2011 by UGA as # 11.
A Boise State fan pointed out last night in follow-up on their blog bragging how they would beat us 3 Saturdays after this Saturday, that yeah but we have Lost 21 games the last 5 years, are # 23 in won/lost over the last 5 years, lost to some really sorry teams such as South Carolina 2007, Colorado last year he pointed out too, and generally have been quite lackluster over these last 5 years at only 13-12 vs The SEC East a down division sure to be more of that down division stuff again this up-coming season too.
But, I believe it is fair to say that with Boise State the last 5 years average ranking # 69, average number of stars 2.41 no Top 100 player and only one 5-Star or 4-Star Kellen Moore from 2007 Scout.com rankings, that Boise State has no business on the field with our talented Georgia Bulldogs 3 Saturdays after this Saturday.

After downloading to a temp folder and listening to all of it, you are an excellent speaker, and your demeanor and voice are gifts.
As for what you discussed, both games being on at 8 pm 4 Saturdays after the day after tomorrow, my clear impression Dale left on me is that Oregon Ducks have never been a football program and that beating only 1 team who finished in the AP Poll Top 25 last season, did not change that one iota. But, since the Oregon Ducks came within a late field goal of beating a team who beat not 1 but 7 who finished in the AP Poll Top 25 as Auburn did to win The BCS NC; Oregon Ducks fans think they have arrived and will do anything to keep their football coach - who clearly has something to hide with Major Sanctions coming in the Will Lyles $25,000 payment for 2 prominent Oregon Ducks' running backs from the state of Texas to that corner of the country in a small stadium of no fans and rivalries such as Boise State.
LSU's Kris makes the point that Jefferson still hasn't done anything and that Les Miles does not disclose in public what he will do with any QB for any game. I have always felt since prior to the kick-off with Okie State, that Zach Mettenberger just absolutely had to play in that game. I could get in to the specifics on my argument that day, but a cursory glance at the Aaron Murray being our Starter for the 4 years after that season, both recruited in the same class but Aaron being injured and having to sit out a season; along with the chronic shoulder and flu that day for Joe Cox, sums it up - as for why Zach Mettenberger had to play in that game.
I tend to believe that the decision on which player to play, Jefferson or Mettenberger will be better made by the LSU staff than it would be made here.
Oregon Ducks are selling their souls to keep a coach with so much to hide, when the details are overwhelmingly against him, just as they were for Jim Tressel and NC coach Butch Davis. There is a show cause. Let Oregon go beat LSU 4 Saturday nights after the day after tomorrow, and that would at least mean something as LSU is one of the 3 top SEC teams this season along with Alabama and Arkansas. Keeping Chip Kelly because he won 1 game against a team who finished in the Top 25, is going to be costly to Oregon Ducks. They don't care. They know they never have ever done anything ever in college football and that no one cares about their program, even there. Chip Kelly himself is front and center not some athletics department person Oregon wants to offer up instead, in this pay for play scandal, of several top running backs from Texas to way up there in the corner of this great nation, where football has never meant anything to anyone for any reason. Oregon will have players out for that contest, or the game will be forfeited. And, no those players are not innocent as offered up in your interview to you. Not when they transfer high school to get out of taking a high school graduation test they cannot pass, just so that they can beat 1 top 25 team all season long and end up in the NC game - Losing.
LSU, for the good of college football has to beat these cheaters who find all of a sudden out of the middle of nowhere literally, that winning is more important than how and who - they win. Oregon has no experience in these matters and has a coach of not dubious but clearly informed purposeful cheating blatant and worse yet lies to The NCAA about it all afterwards. Chip Kelly is going down, and Oregon Ducks' fans can brag all they want about losing on a late field goal and being in the mighty PAC-12 where they beat all season long 1 team who finished in the AP Poll Top 25.
Chip Kelly is going down.
As for Boise State, you seriously do an excellent job of being frank and honest. That is something in today's college football world, we both share such enthusiasm and zesto for ecdawg.
You really have bought in on this S&C the last couple of months. On paper, there is no contest here with our talent compared to their talent. There wasn't any comparison when Vandie won 4 games 2006 including their win over us. There was no comparison 2002 with UGA better than Florida, yet again, we went 0-11 on 3rd down conversions including the late overthrown pass over the head of a wide open WR for the winning touchdown. We lost. Mark Richt has never recovered.
We play 3 teams in the Rivals Top 25 this 12-game regular season and Boise State plays 1 and it is not us. I hope that we go 11-3. Boise State ? I could really care what their record is, other than it better not include a win over the talent we give Mark Richt and his coaching staff credit for getting here compared to their talent.
You make the excellent point that South Carolina game 2 is what really matters. Well, yeah not a winning record vs the DOWN SEC East over that day then the last 6 seasons - well, that would not be good for Mark Richt either.
I do think there is a Win Total Mark Richt must get to this season, however and that is

We act so high and mighty about how tough our schedule is compared to Boise State, as Bulldogs' fans. This is not like Auburn last year winning 7 games vs teams who finished in the AP Poll Top 25 and 2 inside the Top 10, compared to Oregon Ducks who beat 1 team who finished in AP Poll Top 25.
Let's see what I mean here Comparing Boise State's schedule this season to Georgia's this season, shall we because if both teams are playing the same type schedules this season, why not give credit to Boise State for having the better record, and therefore have some reason for playing such an obviously inferior team because they play cupcakes ?

"OK. Now on to the solution to the problem. You have identified the problems that you see with the team repeatedly. I get it.
Is the solution that you see more than, "Fire Richt!"? Do you have a specific replacement in mind? Given future schedules, how long would you give the new coach to accomplish the goals that you see for the program? What are those goals? How often should a UGA coach win a SEC championship in order to be deemed successful? National championship?
How will your opinion of CMR change if UGA wins the SEC this year? National Championship? Next three National Championships?"
my reply :
11-3 I post in a 3 paragraph post, and of course I have never said Fire Mark Richt. I like the guy. His coaching staff is quite another issue, such as specifically Bryan McClendon and Mike Bobo, although honestly, I do not believe that Mark Richt has the 1st clue how to hire a coaching staff, and should have hiring and firing the coaching staff, removed from him. Specific replacement ? I do not believe that Mark Richt could have done a worse job of assembling a coaching staff to mismanage our talent. Our offense has been stale from 2001 with an average Total Offense of # 52 for all 10 years. A list ? How about this list, for example ? A List of coaching staff changes I have been asking for for years here : http://collegefootball.rivals.com/viewCFSE.asp?sel... .
Goals ? You're replying to a post by me of 11-3. Who did we beat to be 11-3 ? My goals are quite clear for this football program, and it is not winning some number of games in 2011 like it is 1969 and totally disregard our Losses total. 21 Losses these last 5 years is unacceptable. I know I read you say that ecdawg. If you are facetious in that statement, just tell me now. 9 games vs teams with a # 70 average ranking this regular season, using Rivals rankings this morning; leaves me with a goal of winning those 9. This means not losing 1 a season who end up not ranked in the AP Poll Top 25. 3 games this regular season against teams who are in Rivals Top 25 this morning. Of those, Florida is certainly a team whom we can beat and Boise State is a team we certainly can beat. Goal of actually beating a team who ends up in the AP Poll Top 10 in a season in which we have a top year, is certainly a goal I see for this football program. If you have less expectations than I in this area, I apologize. I would actually after 10 years here, like to have had 1 season when we were considered to be one of the top teams and actually did that same year, beat any team who is actually finishing that season in the Top 10 AP Poll. We have not done that yet, not in the 1st 10 years of Mark Richt's mismanaging assistant coaching staff of nobodies. 2002, when The SEC was way down with only 1 other team in the entire SEC who ended up ranked in the Coaches' Poll Top 25 with Auburn # 14, is not a check that off the list, we won The SEC Championship. We Lost to an unranked in the final Coaches' Poll Florida whom our offense was 0-11 on 3rd Down Conversions in 2002. We had it easy 2002. The only other SEC Championship was 2005 when our assistants put forward Joe Tereshinski III as DJ Shockley's replacement vs Florida and we Lost again to Florida. Then, with DJ still trying to recover from his injury, the coaching staff of Mark Richt put DJ back in vs Auburn and we came up short with Auburn too. Then, Sugar Bowl and I was there too, and 28 to nothing before we could stop booing Michael F. Adam$ and his wife at the Georgia Dome. LSU and Alabama BOTH ended up higher ranked than us in the Final AP Poll. How is that SEC Champion ? How often should we win an SEC Championship ? I think better than that. Does that bother you somehow, obviously for me to say that ecdawg, sir ? I don't mean it to sir. National Championship ? 6 in our history and we actually had a top team those years and actually beat Top 10 teams the same year. If you have seen us do that the last 10 years, you saw what I was seeking as our goal - not the NC but actually be one of the Top 10 teams and actually having beat a Top 10 team in the final polls the same year.
As for what if Mark Richt wins The SEC Championship this season without an offensive coordinator, without a running backs coach, with an assembly of coaches on his staff that have so mismanaged our talent this season yet again that 2 dozen have just simply quit this coaching staff prior to the Boise State kick-off; win SEC with no wide receivers, no running backs, no fullback, no secondary, and no one who sacks opposing quarterbacks, and with no depth on the OL and a hole on the OL as it is ?
Pipe Dream. What will you say, coming back here December 6 and re-reading this post by me answering your question what if Mark Richt wins The SEC Championship 2011 ?
National Championship ? I know you are having me on now ecdawg, but for the life of me I don't know why. Maybe you don't like me posting at your site. I am a big boy, and will move on where Bulldog Football Fans of Season Tickets and many Florida games and bowl games too, can sit down and say this is disgusting and unacceptable and 2011 offers nothing but more of the same.
Have a great day.
Sorry to have bothered to make you think. I apologize for not replying to you this morning, but I have guys to keep busy during the day. I woke up tonight mid-night to reply. I did give you a like your post when you posted it. Now, I have answered your questions and may have asked you some, if that indeed is fair. We'll see how those answers are forthcoming, right sir ?
Not calling you out, but did not see your reply yesterday to this. Thought you might have missed it, sir.

11-3 I post in a 3 paragraph post, and of course I have never said Fire Mark Richt. I like the guy. His coaching staff is quite another issue, such as specifically Bryan McClendon and Mike Bobo, although honestly, I do not believe that Mark Richt has the 1st clue how to hire a coaching staff, and should have that removed from him. Specific replacement ? I do not believe that Mark Richt could have done a worse job of assembling a coaching staff to mismanage the talent. Our offense has been stale from 2001 with an average Total Offense of # 52 for all 10 years. A list ? How about this list, for example ? http://collegefootball.rivals.com/viewCFSE.asp?selposition=2 . Goals ? You're replying to a post by me of 11-3. Who did we beat to be 11-3 ? My goals are quite clear for this football program, and it is not winning some number of games in 2011 like it is 1969 and totally disregard our Losses total. 21 Losses these last 5 years is unacceptable. I know I read you say that ecdawg. If you are facetious in that statement, just tell me now. 9 games vs teams with a # 70 average ranking this regular season, using Rivals rankings this morning; leaves me with a goal of winning those 9. This means not losing 1 a season who end up not ranked in the AP Poll Top 25. 3 games this regular season against teams who are in Rivals Top 25 this morning. Of those, Florida is certainly a team who can beat and Boise State is a team we certainly can beat. Goal of actually beating a team who ends up in the AP Poll Top 10 in a season in which we have a top year, is certainly a goal I see for this football program.

There is no way that Boise State or Missy State have the kind of players we have this season. They do not match up. Florida might and everyone says we are better than Florida; but, you will note that Rivals has Florida ranked ahead of Georgia and Rivals has Boise State ranked ahead of Georgia, and Rivals has South Carolina ranked ahead of us. We just need to break this all down what it is the fans are saying about how we will do against the 9 regular season opponents who average # 70 in Rivals rankings this morning and about our 3 ranked opponents : Florida, Boise State and South Carolina only. Seriously folks how easy a schedule is that to go undefeated and then get clocked by Alabama, Arkansas or LSU, all 3 of whom are signicantly better than us. Not a little better, a lot better. Honestly, Florida, South Carolina and Boise State are our 3 ranked opponents and really only South Carolina of them really matches up.
This is what is so wild about fans saying here and everywhere on the Internet how we might end up with 10 wins after the bowl game.
How, in the name of Heaven Above, could we lose any of the 9 games vs teams avg rank Rivals today # 70 ?
We aren't a worse team than either of those, folks.
That leaves us South Carolina.
Ok, say we lose that one.
Then, SEC CG and get clocked.
BCS bowl. Play a really good team I hope for a change.
People saying 10 wins are just unable to look at the schedule and see where those teams really are compared to us.
I could not possibly see worse than 11-3 and frankly 11-3 is not that different from what we have done the over the last 5 years of 4 plus losses a season, is it ?
Lose to Boise State and this year is no different at all from what we have suffered over the last 5 years.
Lose to Florida and beat Boise State and again we have 4 losses 10-4 and still are no better than we have been over the last entire 5 years.
Lose to Florida and to Boise State and this season is OVER - just forget Mark Bradley's ramblings on his blog today to the contrary. He doesn't break down the 9 regular season games against the average # 70 team. Rivals does that for him yesterday and he is too lazy today to work it out what 9 games vs 9 teams avg Rivals rank # 70 means.
And, that goes for anyone else betting $160 vs gaining $100 that we don't win 9 games vs regular season opponents of which we play 12. And, 2 of the remaining 3 are not that great. Are they ?
Bragging about us getting to The SEC CG means nothing, therefore. Other than The SEC East is down.
