For whatever it is worth, this has been the quietest on my Facebook feed about the Florida-Georgia game that I can remember. 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.

Given the election and finding that the coaching grass isn’t always greener this is my impression of this year’s cocktail party:

Georgia hired Smart to win these kind of games. 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.

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.

Georgia played hard til the end, unlike the last couple of years. They need many offensive linemen for Christmas. A receiver bigger than a smurf would be nice too.

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… Read more »

Agree totally. New head coaches should start low and get performance bonuses like you said. This entire state always underperforms no matter what sport it is.
