I don’t know if it is Georgia’s record, the election, or what, but I am used to seeing a lot of pictures of jean shorts and dead alligators.

Unfortunately, they didn’t expect homecoming disasters and near misses against D2 teams at the same time. For no real reason I’m optimistic about the outcome tomorrow. If I were a betting man I’d take 7.5 points for any amount up to the price of a good meal. October 28, 2016 3:53 PM Log in to Reply MattMD_actual Florida is going to smoke Georgia tomorrow.

October 28, 2016 9:12 PM Log in to Reply MattMD_actual Serious question: Are you sober or do you suffer from some type of dementia? I understand we can disagree on politics but college football wins and losses are data that a five-year-old could find on the internet. Miami has lost three straight and the last game they played was over a week ago to VT, the best team they have played to date. He is arguably doing better than Kirby Shart. Please try to keep up.

Plus most far right news sites don’t carry sports scores and if they did, they tend to have misleading facts. They most likely have UGA in the top 10.

They need many offensive linemen for Christmas. A receiver bigger than a smurf would be nice too.

October 29, 2016 8:25 PM Log in to Reply augusta52 I saw a piece on the cost of buying out various coaches if they were to “get the ax”—Saban was somewhere around $23 million and Smart was “only” $13,500,000. Golly, wouldn’t most of us, if ever fired, want to be paid for years “not to work?” Maybe with these newly-hired coaches, instead of some outlandish salary, they should start more modestly, like a base salary plus ABC dollars for every game you win and (for the harder games like Auburn and Ole Miss), ABC+ dollars. Or maybe we should have salary deductions for games you should not lose…eh, like losing at Homecoming to Vanderbilt. It is amazing that the state of Georgia, twice the population of Alabama, has had a whopping 2 national championships in the last 40 years, and both of those (1 each for Georgia and Tech) were several presidents ago….

This entire state always underperforms no matter what sport it is. October 31, 2016 9:26 AM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
