I agree. We play hard and don't quit.

@Bulldawg Bob2 @ZippyMorocco @IveyLeaguer Thanks for reminding me of the Massacre on the Plains. That is one. However, Bama was not highly ranked. IIRC, they lost to ULM and went 6-6.

@EdThomas @IveyLeaguer @ecdawg 1. Agree
2. A huge problem. Searles didn't fix it, and friend hasn't fixed it.
3. It was Bloody Tuesday. I will consider it a win if we know where to line up.
4. I will be happy if we can execute the snap and field punts. We have a history of great punt returners. Buzzy Rosenberg, Scott Woerner, Damian Gary, etc. I think we are last in KO returns, and near last in punt returns. Belin apparently knew what to do. Apparently no one on this staff does.
@IveyLeaguer @EdThomas Offhand, though, I can't think of any game under Richt where we beat a team we just didn't have any business beating.
Maybe UT in 2001. That's the only one I can think of. We almost did it last year against Bama.

I think Gettys will be a first rounder, but hoping not.

@EdThomas I gave the offensive staff good grades. Bobo was a liability, now he is an asset. Like I said, I hope for the best.
Also, I didn't mean to infer you were a sunshine pumper, as that was not my intent.
As for holding the team together, I agree. However, I give a lot of credit to Murray and garrison Smith.

Excellent write up, but I have to take exception to your coaching grade. I will post mine, but let me preface by saying that no one loves UGA more than me. I confess to watching softball when UGA is playing. I draw the line at equestrian.
My first day as a student was the day we beat Bama on the flea flicker. So I have seen a lot of football, UGA and other. I estimate that I have seen or listened to >400 UGA games.
So, here are my grades:
Ball - A+
McClendon - B
Lilly - B for TEs, F for special teams=C-
Friend - D+
Bobo - B+
Olivadotti - C+
Wilson - B+
Lakatos - F
Grantham - F
Richt - C
I didn't issue these grades lightly. I have seen more unsound play in the past 4 years than I saw in Dooley's 25 years. That is coaching. During the Dooley years, we were often out manned, but rarely out coached.Erk had a lot to do with that.
Think about last year's Capital One Bowl. Nebraska scored while we were trying to line up. This was with a senior laden defense.
Think about the ST debacle in the 2011 WLOCP.
Now look at this year. Was a Willie defense ever worse? Have you seen worse ST play ever, by any team? This is 13 years into a regime.
IMO, the rot began at the 2006 Sugar Bowl. We were totally unprepared, yet managed to fight back. WVU couldn't stop us. So, on 4th down, I was screaming fake punt, yet the staff didn't put us in punt safe. Ball game.
Since then, with the exception of the last half of the 2007 season, we have under performed. If we could just execute a long snap and catch punts, we would be 11-1.
I will be a Dawg until the day I die, but I am not a sunshine pumper. I hope for the best, but am not expecting improvement.

@Bulldawg Bob2 @ZippyMorocco It was inexcusable because, despite the injuries, we gave the game away. Like I said previously, we are not sound. We beat ourselves.

@Jesse1 @ZippyMorocco We were three TDs better than Vandy, and yes they are chopped liver. They have improved from awful to mediocre. They barely beat Wake.

I can only speak for myself, but here are my expectations. I expect to compete for the East every year. I expect to win the SEC every 4-5 years. I expect us to field a sound football team. We haven't done that in years. The Vandy loss is inexcusable.
I'm not advocating the dismissal of anyone, but I expect more than I got in 2013.

@Red_white_and_bulldawg IMO, the young excuse doesn't fly after 8-10 games.
1 week ago on Mark Richt: All Assistant Coaches Should Be Back Next Season
Can any of you say our secondary improved from the Clemson game to the NATS game? I didn't see any improvement. That is coaching.
@DawgByte I think the key is having Wilson or Herrera meet the B back in the hole every down.

@GirdersRBending They only have a top 5 class due to volume. They have 33 commits to our 17, yet only have 3 more points on 24 7. Their star average is 7th in the SEC. If we get 4 more commits, our class will be ranked higher with 12 fewer commits.
Does this computer really think Yech will have 9 first downs and 162 yards passing?
