As I face the morning sun that somehow did rise this am, I realize I have select few coherent thoughts. The first of which is that this is going to be a long week.
- There's still no consistency among the coaches, playcalling. In the simplest of explanations, we put a dagger into their defense with that Boykin end around and never bothered to twist it a little.
- Richt's staff was out coached. BSU made better adjustments which is a facet if the game that continues to elude our sideline. The Broncos going to a no huddle and quick sets totally negated our rush and aggressiveness.
- Sometimes it's hell living outside the arena. But we can take solace in that we're large in number. Dawg fans turned the Dome into a frenzied and electric venue. With red spread all the way to the rafters.
As difficult as last night was, can't wait to get back tween the hedges and see those silver britches. And that beautiful red helmet.

I was less than thrilled with our conditioning. First game, indoors and we were cramping and out muscled on the lines. Just sad.
Thing is, that wasn't the worst that I saw. Hope they make changes in a week, else it stands to be a long game and season.
we looked slow on D line, slow at LB, and weak and worse, passive, on O-line. Crowell looked fine, but to often, he was forced to dodge a defender 2 yards deep in the backfield. Passive really gts me upset in O-line play. bewildered...
Kevin here -
you said "Richt's staff was out coached."
seems like that phrased has been uttered way too many times the past few seasons
Alan, cramping comes from not hydrating.... Not poor conditioning. Players have got to learn to stay hydrated... Once the cramps start, it's hard to hydrate... W/o IV, which Boykin got two at half.
I just hope Boise State is really that good.
Biggest disappointment for me was the offense. Three big plays for touchdowns, but nothing consistent, no ball control, no long drive. The defense played very well for a half and held a really potent offense in check, but the offense couldn't follow suit and the D eventually an out of gas.
First of all, the people who think that Joe T. and Kasay are the solution to our strength and conditioning program are Kool Aid drinkers. I was in the program during the early 90's and I can assure you we had an inferior S&C program then, why would you bring in two old dinosaurs to try to fix what they couldn't run back then? INSANITY! You could see it last night, we are WEAK on both lines compared to Boise. It's only going to get worse. I see a team that looks like they have no heart. I think it's time to make some tough decisions.....
The reality of the current state of UGA football is rather sobering. There are only two questions to ask as a dawg fan to assess the result of the game. Does BSU possess superior athletes that regardless of systems and coaching, that would dominate both lines of scrimmage based on ability alone? This question would raise the issue that BSU has a recruiting edge on UGA. The second question to raise is whether the coaching staff of BSU better prepared their players so that the differences of talent and size were offset readily by coaching? Again, this raises the question that the UGA coaching staff is inferior to BSU.
Either way, this is a rather visible exposure of the state of UGA football, and the sobering thought of what should be expected from the remainder of the season.
I left off one additional comment for thought. UGA ranks among the top 5 teams in the NCAA with regard to NFL placements the past two years. With this much NFL talent, its hard to tag 2009 and 2010 as rebuilding years of talent for Richt. The reality is that the term a rebuilding year is not applicable to rationalize the results of the past few years, particularly when your freshman QB was among the best in the NCAA. Most coaches, even the best, lose their effectiveness after 8-10 years at the same institution. Look around the country, and that fact is indisputable. Richt is past his term of effectiveness. Period.
