TOPIC: So, where was Grantham?

So, where was Grantham? 2 years 1 month ago #1

After watching the defense fall apart, I was expecting to see Grantham screaming up and down the sideline. Being at the game, I could not find Grantham at all. Maybe I was overshooting him, like Murray. :P

Richt probably neutered him, because getting fired up isn't
"the Georgia way" or something.

I was there also and saw him charge the field a couple times, but nothing like a was expecting after the lack-luster performance in the 1st half.

The whole team played like that the whole game to me. The players on and off the field were acting....like Mark Richt, vanilla like??? :unsure:

Teams take on the personality of their coach. In this case that
would be lethargic, unprepared, and as plain as unflavored non fat yogurt.

What is interesting to me is that Saban acts very calm on the sidelines as well (I know he's ranted some but CMR has at times too)........difference is, he's arguably the smartest coach in college football and more than that, his players KNOW they had better focus, get the job done or go sit on the bench.

Point is.......I believe you can have a calm demeanor as long as you have the other attributes.

I just want to remind everyone that this was BUFFALO. This team went 3-9 in the MAC last year. I maintain that it's going to take quite a few games before I can even THINK about anything positive. That game yesterday affected me similar to the way the Colorado game did a few years ago.

Having had 24 hours to mull this one over, I can only say that Todd Gurley and Merritt Hall did anything at all to make me happy. The rest of the entire TEAM, including ALL of the coaches, made me ill. Alex Zordich ran through us like grass through a goose. How much better is James Franklin going to be next weekend? It's going to be like giving the goose EX-LAX!

Aaron Murray better quit thinking about passing records and remember that this is about winning, and ONLY about winning. Everyone on EARTH knows we should have been behind at the half, and possibly should have LOST this one. That 22 point differential is an ILLUSION.

I'm not sure passion is what was missing in that game. While it certainly WAS missing, I would go further, and wlayton said it. There was NO game plan. The "plan" was to show up and watch Buffalo shake in their shoes. That didn't happen. They took a SIMPLE approach against us, which is what I fear for the rest of the season . . . cram it down our THROATS. And it would have WORKED if they had a football team. Missouri has one. Our D will stack the line with 8 in the box, and that's when our secondary will get BURNED in single coverage OR zone. But even THAT won't have to happen. Franklin already KNOWS our weakness NOW. We can't defend against a QB with NO legs. How much worse will HE be?!

There is NOTHING to be optimistic about right now. This team will have to show up for the next 11 games in a ROW for me to START believing again. This game HURT.

Edit: For those who think I'm being a little TOO pessimistic, remember back to the bowl game. We only had to stop them ONE TIME in 85 yards, and weren't MAN ENOUGH to do it. Yesterday, we had 94 yards behind us, and STILL couldn't stop them. Our defense is a LIABILITY that has to be OVERCOME by our OFFENSE, led by CMB!!!!!! This isn't pessimism - it's our SAD REALITY!!!!
