Sounds good to me, how about going from "Junkyard Dawgs" from the past to being the "Old Man Dawgs" for this season in honor of their brilliant student-athlete. :laugh: :laugh: :woohoo: ;)

That turned into an "Old Man Beat Down". Jarvis Jones is an "Old Man", in case anyone was wondering. Toward the end of the third quarter, I saw Richardson limping off the field like an old man too.

2-0 is something, so yes. Long season though and our O-line
is going to improve, and our play calling needs to be solid consistently.

I was impressed last night. Very good play, for the 2nd half anyway. I also thought bobo called a good game, (Notice he still isn't "coach", or capitalized, but he has been upgraded from bozo). Nice to see a swing pass, and a pass to the TE, but the FB was absent again for the most part. And the draw on 3rd and long is still run a bit too much for my liking, but a solid game plan none the less.
D was incredible in the 2nd half. What can be said about Jarvis. Simply amazing. If the O line shakes out the cobwebs, and bobo continues to improve, we may just make some noise.
Last week's performance was still sub par, but a great rebound and I feel better about the season now.

The play calling was probably the best Bobo has ever done.
Bennett had his worst game ever.
King and Brown looked pretty good
Too many false start penalties
Offense still needs to speed up-wasted time outs and delay of gain penalties
If Gurley stays healthy he will be a super star
Marshall can't seem to get it going
Other than 2 big plays defense was awesome
Jarvis Jones reminds me of Pollack
Defense line did a hell of a job.

Richt and company still need to find a way to motivate the team not to come out so flat.
Slow starts can dig a hole that can affect the game plan, we were lucky they started slow as well.

IMHO, this can be a huge step forward for the whole team.

Good job DAWGS !
Some are wise and some are otherwise !

Yeah.. the O-Line was really bothered by Mizzou jumping in
and out of different looks, especially Theus.

The doggone thing with the O-Line is we can't really wait beyond this season to have a more cohesive confident unit.

This year is set up great for us, and we need to take advantage of it. The young men need to grow into it
quickly. Hopefully this taste of what's to come will have us
more ready to take on the next hostile environment against
really active D-lines... 'cause it's coming.

Reflections of the Missouri/UGA football game, and other things . . .

Much has been said about Jarvis Jones, nothing more I can add. Actions speak louder than words. Jarvis is definitely a man of action, although he does handle himself really well when being interviewed. Multi-talented. Not many men of his character and talent come along too often, something like a cut above.

Living in Florida, I have a few connections to high school football players (other sports also) and every year I try and pass what I know and hear along to those of you that don’t get to hear and see all of the things I do concerning young players from this area. Makes this old fart — “old man” using the words from Missouri’s Richardson . . . . feel appreciated in some areas. While we get older, does not diminish our fervor or understanding of “the game”. It is possible that some of us old farts might understand “the game” better than some of the young whipper-snappers that like to pretend when discussing football.

One player that had my undivided attention in the first two games is someone that I have great faith in. Watched him along with others for some time. Marshall Morgan. Said when he signed on with UGA, excited me, huge leg and has the temperament to become outstanding. Said the same thing about Blair.

Watching the young man on kickoffs, something has changed. In high school he could kick the ball out of the endzone on a regular basis. Don’t get me wrong on this point, think I have seen a change that reminds me of the not too distant past when folks started messing with Blair Walsh.

Rex Robinson along with others became a bit perturbed about the change they saw in Walsh’s kicking from high school to college. Blair Walsh as we all know is now the kicker for the Minnesota Vikings. Corrected a simple little “timing” issue with Blair in the Vikings camp and told the other kickers to look elsewhere for employment.

Kicking as we all know can be and many times is the deciding factor in a very close game, especially when two teams are evenly matched. Watched South Carolina yesterday, they will be every much and more than what we played against the Missouri Tigers. Not degrading the Missouri team, they played their butts off. Comes a time in the second half that talent and depth has a way of stepping up, South Carolina has talent and depth, lots of it. Perfect game for a solid kicking game when teams are very close to equal.

Amazing how Morgan can hit a field goal over 50 yards and miss extra points. Folks, comes down to getting comfortable and most of all, kicking field goals and extra points usually is all about timing. Leg is fine with Morgan, huge leg, work on the timing issue, can’t afford to give up a single point in some of the upcoming games.

Just reliving what I saw in the first two games. Little things we work on to improve. Jarvis Jones, just get the hell out of the way, young man is with us this season and then some team in the NFL is going to enjoy what we are enjoying now.

Did you folks notice how high and far the ball traveled when he made the 50+ yarder in the Missouri game? I did.
