I know Murray will be short changed. The guy was great in high school and great in college. If given the chance i believe he will make a great pro QB. I believe he will have a high side in the Pros similar to Stafford just maybe not as strong of an arm. You are a blessed man to have a woman from UGA!
Ten Cup: I would start with Herschel. If I did not it would be like the unpardonable sin. For his fullback I would take William Andrews. I know he did not get the ink that Brooks and Cribbs got but he was a great palyer. (Bet you didn't know I knew that much about AU football.) I liked Sullivan and Beasly back in the day. Quarterback would be Cam.
Looking forward to the UGA-AU game Saturday. I believe it will be high scoring. Georgia should get Conley back for this one.
Ten Cup: Thanks for another great 5@10. I am glad to see the Mocs winning games by the scores they have been losing by the last couple of years. The defense is really meeting the challenges and holding opponents.
Shout out to much maligned Aaron Murray for finally putting Danny Wuerffel in second place for career touchdowns in the SEC.
Watched the Alabma-LSU game Saturday and the Tide put on a show in the second half. Hope they get to play FSU for the National Title. Should be a great game.
Ten Cup: The dawgs defense got an F on Saturday. That is a F for tackling and a F for the defensive coach. At least with Willie Martinez we knew how to tackle or could tackle a little better even if the defense was bad. They need to go back to fundamentals at practice and learn how to tackle and cover wide receivers and backs coming out of the backfield.
Glad to see my alma mater UTC win one in front of a big crowd. Hopefully they can keep it up.
Ten Cup: I know that sometimes Bobo tries to run up the middle a little too much but overall I believe he does a good job. He is always having to bail out Granthams defense. We had all of those NFL picks on the defense last year and we have a young defense this year and things are the same. There are some Dawg fans finally calling for Granthams head and I personally would like to see someone else coach the defense.
Ten Cup: The Falcons just plainly suck this year. Where are Michael Turner and John Abraham when you could use them? Todd Grantham must be moonlighting on Sundays and Mondays in The ATL.
Who would have thought that the Cleveland Stinkpants (good name by the way) would have more wins than the Falcons, Giants and Steelers COMBINED!
Andrew Luck has to be THE number one pick. He wills and leads his team to wins like Manning did while a Colt.
Ten Cup: I personally did not like Jim Donnan coaching the Dawgs. He was arrogant and not near as good as he thought he was. Remember one of his first games where the Dawgs had like 10 to 15 players get cramps (even Champ Bailey) and he was interviewed by Loran Smith after the game. Loran asked him about the cramps and he tore into Loran big time. We just had a big win and all you can worry about is cramps. Just never did like him.
Glen Mason had a perfect record at Georgia also. Held the job for one day and decided to stay at Kansas.
How stupid does A-Rod think people are giving the same old story time after time. Makes him look like the idiot.
Ten Cup: I would give my Dawgs an A and Aaron Murray an A++. The dude has finally figured out how to win a game against adversity. He did his usual D-lineman interception in a big game but to come back and play the way he did was awesome.
As for the Mocs it was the same as always. I would love for them to win one big game just to get over the hump of not being able to. They have teased us the last few years and always seem to let victory slip away from them. I grade them with a C also because like you I say they are average at best until they get the monkey off their back of being able to beat GSU or Appy State.
As for the Falcons I say they are done unless a miracle happens. Who would have thought before the season that after 4 weeks the Falcons, Giants and Steelers would be a combined 1 and 11.
Ten Cup: "It could be seven if UT listed their starting QB as "Missing."
That is one of the funniest oneliners you have ever come up with Jay!
As for the Dawgs grades this past weekend:
Special Teams: F
As for the UT quarteback situation I am not a fan but I thought the same thing about Dobbs and Ferguson. Are they that much worse than the current UT QB's?
Ten Cup: The 5@10 gets better and better. You have some wild predictions for the BCS.
Yaisel Puig is stating to do some good Andruw Jones impersonations with his actions on the field. Even though he is a much better player.
Favorite Eastwood quote from Heartbreak Ridge: "Sir you are boring the h*** out of me." This while smoking a cigar after his men did all the work in Grenada.
I am ready for some football and cannot wait to see the Dawgs play Saturday night. I truly believe that people are underestimating the defense and will be plesantly surprised.
