Okay. I'm turning it off.


Feel a little better

We at least showed some fight. Haven't given up, although we only have 6 minutes to go. They got another first down on a toss sweep. Their guy was holding, but the ref didn't see it. We need to shut them down. Can't let them run it up the gut for 8 yards like in the last series.

We need some playmakers, too

Orson Charles looks good. Marlon Brown made the one first down. I won't name any of the other players.

Mitchell just scored. He's apparently got talent. Can we finish the drill in the fourth quarter? Is there still hope? I don't think so, but I'd love to be proven wrong.

Anybody notice we haven't run one toss sweep?

They did an end around. With the exception of the one gift off-sides penalty they gave us, they have had next to no penalties. We started the game shooting ourselves in the foot, and we have yet to holster the pistol.

Now they run a toss sweep, overload one side of the line and we failed to adjust.

Like I said. Awful. We could play these guys ten times and lose every single time.

Get rid of the uniforms. Not sure about the offensive and defensive coordinators. I think we went into our slide when Richt gave up the offensive coordinator position.

Bad Series

They are rushing 5 guys and on our key series our center and guard are pushed all the way back. At least we got some first downs, but we needed to get points.

We get the ball back and throw into double coverage? And then we run up the middle. Then a sack. Finally a busted coverage on the punt.

Poor tackling. Face-mask. Pitiful. I've been waiting this summer for good football and I got this.

Touchdown Boise State. I said they would win by 21. They may win by 50.

Yet another false start. They haven't had any.

What Happened to 3/4 Defense?

Guys running wide open. No pressure on the quarterback. I thought our strength and conditioning was supposed to help us be in shape. We were supposed to be able to confuse the opposing offenses.

Maybe we will improve over what Willie Martinez did, but as of yet, I don't see it.

This is awful

They have outplayed us at the line of scrimmage. No excuse for not picking up the 4th and 1.

The good news is that Crowell has some pop. He has moves. Can't block, but he has moves.

The difference to me is scheme. They have an offensive coordinator that utilizes bunch formations, quarterback options and other concepts to offset Georgia's size advantage. I've never been too thrilled with using just the pro set and those types of formations. The teams like Florida that use the spread are eating our lunch. Even worse news: Georgia Tech's quarterback can throw. They may beat us this year.

If you look at our performance this game, running up the middle is not working. We need to test them on the edges. The one time we did, we scored a touchdown. I don't mind losing to a #5 team. What bothers me is looking totally inept while doing so.

Boise State also has a nice kicking game. We can't win if they start on the 50 and we start on our own 15.

Keeping this game close will be tough for Mark Richt. Best I can tell, Boise State wins by 21.
