i just noticed that after the sony michel TD, they started calling him Mitchell, not Michel.


Gary also called Malcolm Mitchell, Marcus Mitchell.


idiots.

@J.H.D. this is true, but it's also true that pruitt's way of saying it, at least from my viewpoint, makes me feel like he is taking greater ownership of the issues. yes, he credited south crackalacky for what they did, but he didn't use that credit as any excuse not to excel anyway.

@jc3dawg i think jeremy would tell you that he and the defensive staff and the players should overcome any real or perceived talent deficiencies and just get it done.

@Bleudawg @TampaDawg @SUWANEEGEORGIA (I'm embarrassed) @DrTiki both you and tampa have very valid points.  and it is true that nobody says anything if we score and then eventually win.  that's all true.

but mike's track record in clutch situations is suspect.  remember the joe cox thing back in 2009 against kentucky? 

let me take it a step further---if mike is responsible for training the QBs and the QB goofs it up, then isn't that, by extension, mike's issue?  sure, mason actually made a bad game decision.

@TampaDawg @DrTiki the problem with bobo is that standing by his decisions still look shaky.  when you have the best player in America as your running back and you don't use him in the red zone, people are going to really question your judgment as a play caller.


mike is and has always been a little schizo calling plays.  he goes through really good stretches and then brainfarts.  unfortunately, the brainfart against USUCK was the straw that broke the camel's back.  it was at a critical juncture of the game.

@DrTiki @SUWANEEGEORGIA (I'm embarrassed) i guess, but he would have to be 100% in my view in order to keep from maybe ruining a career altogether because he came back too fast.

I am gonna draw a distinction here between richt and Pruitt. This right here exemplifies what I love about Pruitt and why I am often disappointed with richt.

Pruitt says "It's embarrassing for me to be a part of a team that scores 35 points and you lose a football game," Pruitt said. "That's pretty embarrassing. And I'll be the first to say I've got to do my part on this side to fix that so that doesn't happen again."

This type quote using these types of words are what the head coach should be saying up front and before any of his assistants are interviewed. It screams "I am pissed off and this disgusts me to no end".

For some reason mark just won't do it.

Guys are going to want to run through brick walks for Pruitt.

@007Dawg=Tuck Fech!!!! @WalktheDawg Whisky  @Mike_Brooks14 ok.  this begs the question.......if they had 10 in the box, then why the hell didn't we run a tight end over the line and get a quick 6?  sounds like a legit audible to me.

i'm sure chris conley and I would disagree (based on his recent comments), but I just don't get why Faton Bauta can't get some snaps to provide a change of pace when Mason isn't necessarily lighting it up.


Are there 10 plays that Bauta knows how to run?  Does he zero in on receivers when the pass option is there?  If so, is that any different from what Mason does right now?

if you have the option either to run or pass due to the particular abilities of a certain qb, why would you not deploy that possibility onto the field?


I'm sure that I am not privy to what he can or can't do.  maybe that's why he isn't being given a shot.  


Is there something that I'm missing here?


Not trying to egg anyone on or hurt someone's feelings or bash a player here. 

I just don't get why were are intentionally limiting ourselves at the qb position.

A little Troy trivia here. Head coach Larry Blakeney was the bag man for pat dye before buster brown took over as head coach at auburn. So you can beat the snot out if an aubie by beating Blakeney and his guys on Saturday.

@Mike_Brooks14 the other issue that kinda goes along with this is exactly when you think a guy is ready to go into the game, specifically a true freshman.  we tend to be very cautious about letting the youngest guys get some face time because they're not perfect at blocking and other things.  by doing this, though, we negate their potential impact due to their considerable physical skills.  sure, guys miss blocks sometimes.  but hey, our seasoned offensive linemen do that and they are supposed to be the experts at it.  but not putting a wideout or running back in the game, who could give your O a spark, can be detrimental to the overall performance of the offense.  sometimes you just gotta roll the dice a little more and take some risks.

@TampaDawg @Bleudawg @SUWANEEGEORGIA (pruitt "pick it up quick") i hope he's not hurt, but more importantly, i hope he's not playing OK just to be able to stay on the field for a moment of glory.  i know waiting is hard, but the TEAM needs the very best chance to win out there on the field.

I had not thought about until now.


two things..........bobo has been here at uga since richt started.  he has had the chance to recruit and train his guys from day one.  he has been the OC since the end of 2006.  i guarantee you that if he did not want to offer mason out of high school, mark wouldn't have done it (all based on skill set).  to me, mike's work has been a combination of great and horrible.  we usually beat up the mediocre teams, but we rarely get those clutch drives completed with TDs against the better teams on the map. 

jeremy pruitt has been a Dawg for not even a year, and he knew we were weak in the secondary from day one.  the metamorphosis that he wants to see in our defense is not going to be an overnight deal.  he knew it, and i'm sure richt knew it.  not being one to throw guys under the bus, richt is having to weather the storm while we get things the way jeremy wants them.


the bottom line is this----should we expect mike to have already recruited the guys that fit his/our offense over the last 14 years, or should we be mad at pruitt for not being able to take someone else's players and make filet mignon out of scrapple?

I also know that I don't want government involved in telling parents how they can and cannot discipline their kids.  I know that some people might take things too far.  I get that. 

but inviting government into the home in a very serious way is not something I'm willing to do.

i also don't want them telling people where they have to live, what they should eat and so many other things that are private matters. 

and don't make the mistake of saying that I am condoning things that may be borderline wrong. I'm not saying that at all.  but the nfl is NOT qualified to determine that.

@WalktheDawg Whisky  @Bleudawg I'll take the bait Whisky.  If that is the case, then why not put all the scat backs in there and make the usuck defense see stars trying to chase them around?  mike bobo did not have a game plan set up to utilize mason's individual skills as a qb.  if he doesn't change things, good teams will capitalize on it defensively and frustrate us.



the other issue is this---is Hutson Mason good enough to win us games when we have to have the QB make a play or else lose?  on Saturday, that answer was a definite NO.  i just don't think he can will us to win like some QBs can.  that's not to say that he's not gonna be better against tech than he was against usuck.

@Bleudawg @DrTiki the issue i have is that other coaches would have been tempted to put in the other guy if for nothing else to give the defense something else to think about.  if the qb's psyche is that fragile, then i'm not sure he's gonna ever be that good to begin with.  when we make a guy like dylan thompson look like tom brady, i get ticked off.

the problem is that there is ZERO margin for error now.  nothing.  playing perfectly through a 10 game regular season is not going to be easy.  not saying we can't do it, but it's a very tall order.  the problem is that there was no excuse for not beating them.  we had the shots but crapped in our pants again.  big game richt did what he has been prone to do over his career.  there is no kind way to say it unfortunately.
