Coach Richt, I seriously hope you watched the LSU-SC game because that is how you challenge SC's defense. You cannot tell me that LSU has better personnel that UGA does, especially after LSU's recent O line injuries. You hit them in the freakin mouth, and act like you lifted a weight in the offseason.
LSU's defense was determined to not be dominated by Lattimore, Shaw and SC's O line. The fact that UGA was is flat out embarrassing.
I guess LSU just has that much better personnel that UGA because we didn't have a clue a week ago tonight.
Tired of the unpreparedness, tired of the lack of focus, tired of the lack of killer instinct. GA fans deserve better than this!!!!!!!

Up vote from me bro. I was sayin the same thing watching the game.
Some of our fans need to be taking notes.
Coming into this season, a few things were clear.
1) Our biggest vulnerabilities were going to include both of our tackles in pass blocking.
2) Murray is only to going to help us if he gets a running offense to take some of the pressure off.
3) Essentially, this team rises and falls with our ability to run the football and stop the run. Even passing offense and passing defense feeds off of our ability to control down and distance. And that starts in the run game.
So, we finally face a legitimate (complete) team. And those three vulnerabilities show up.
Some of us are acting shocked that Mark Richt couldn't cure the obvious ills with freshmen and players stretching their contributions at new positions.
It's football. Running the table doesn't happen very often. Even when the personnel shakes out (ie. Florida has backdoored every national championship. Yes. I said every. Bama backdoored last season. LSU in 2003 and especially in 2007).
And I could care less what type of records we built up in 2010. We were rebuilding (same as 2006). Doomsdayers can cry all they want. But you don't expect greatness with a freshman QB in the SEC. Heck... you can barely expect anything out of a sophomore QB in the SEC. It's how this league is built. It takes men to play in this league. And success is found on the ground in the running game.
We have a long, long way to go to be ready in December. But we have the talent to get us there. Instead of focusing on the easy way out (ie. blaming coaches. pointing out the fact that we were rebuilding in 2010 and 2011 and ignoring the opportunity in front of us in 2012 and 2013), why don't we focus our threads on player personnel, what coaching decisions worked and didn't work, and recruiting for 2013/2014.
Treat this board like our team, our recruits, and our coaching staff are reading it. Point out opportunities for improvement. Point out great calls, plays, and playmakers. Point out where we flat out missed it. If something is obvious to you, be specific and don't generalize.
But don't take cheap shots. Save that for the pisspoor media who never played football and only like to incite page hits.
This is a great community. And both sides of aisle need to chill a bit. Not every slight is intended to be hateful. Not every compliment is intended to ignore the fact that the team is still maturing right before our eyes.
If you love this team, then you wouldn't want to do anything to hurt recruiting or hurt player morale (these are teenagers). You can be critical and instructive to teenagers without being hateful. And even though the coaches are professionals and are paid a lot, keeping that same decorum towards them will go a long way to making this board huge.
Two very well said posts, meansonny ++.
Art Schlichter's cellmates and Mo Clarett's rugby team believe Ohio State always does things honestly.....
