Boys We're Almost Done With Murderers Row
Beat Auburn
Beat Tennessee
Bama?

The media and experts gave UGA little to chance coming out of this stretch without a pair of losses. Still have a lot of work to get better, but look like a ball team.

Mac Jones is good, Najee Harris is a grown arse man, and bama's defense is not soft, contrary to popular belief. I don't feel good about this game.

I may be alone here, but Najee Harris looks really slow to me. Had a big game this week but so did everyone else for both teams. He hasn’t been nearly as good as advertised coming out of HS.

Bama had their "oh shit" game vs ole miss which means they'll be on point for us. I hoped their oh shite game vs us . Hope in one hand and shite in the other and see which hand fills up first.

re: Boys We're Almost Done With Murderers Row
Until CKS can get the bama monkey off our back, I'm not sold. I was in Atlanta in 12 when my heart got broke into a million pieces. I was in Athens 2015 when Bama completely embarrassed us. We all remember the 17-18 NCG and the 18 SECCG.

BUT this might be the best defense UGA has fielded and there are weapons all over the field. I think we have a damn good chance to finally finish a 4 quarter game against bama.

But the fact we've already beat Auburn and Tennessee, 3 games into the season, after next week the schedule is down hill. CKS and staff all deserve a raise, not sure we could have pulled off the last few weeks in the CMR era.

The Bama defense will be hearing shite all week, so they'll be fired up. I'm still not overly impressed with our offense. If our game plan is to come out and run up the middle with Zeus every 1st down, it's going to be a long night. It feels like Kirby still has his hands all over our offense.

Mac Jones is very good, but he lacks the mobility of the other QBs we've faced. I believe our D line will win the battle against their O line. I just wish we would see more creativity from our offense, like that handoff to Jermaine Burton.

The Gators and Vols are most likely finished. We will almost certainly get two shots at Bama this year. What do you say we beat them twice?

re: Boys We're Almost Done With Murderers Row
Gotta have all our skill guys healthy with their head on straight and no mistakes.Pickens,Cook,White and Kearis all need to be threats

I like the way we're using the middle of the field with our passing attack but Stetson needs to be careful with those passes.
Bama won't blitz as much as UT and will have more folks in
passing lanes.

Gonna be some great matchups with
our DB's and their WR's.

IMO, McKitty, Fitz, and Darnell are going to be the game changers if we are going to take it Bama. Pickens will draw double coverage and KJ had been running around making catches like a wild man. Bamas D is gonna focus on them hard and our TE's should feast. All lot of teams have asked for Bama, but damnit, I'm ready for Saturday. I'm ready to get the Saban monkey off our back.

re: Boys We're Almost Done With Murderers Row
This team, with a franchise QB, would be the real deal. Bennett has done some good things but this will be the first game he plays when he'll face a defense with athletes on par with our own. I like his confidence and the fact that he isn't easily rattled, but I think we'll have to do some creative things with the ground game. If this turns into lots of 3rd and longs for Bennett, it won't go well.

McIntosh and Milton honestly looked more impressive than White against Tennessee. It would be great if one of them had a true breakout game against Alabama. Or if White finally lives up to the hype he had before his injuries. Let's just hope we don't see Cook attempting to go straight into the heart of the Alabama defense. This is not the game for running undersized backs up the gut.

Pickens also needs to be a factor. Jackson has been playing way over his recruiting rating but Pickens needs to step up and be the 5-star guy he was as a true freshman. If Jackson, Pickens, Burton and Rosemy are all making plays, that's definitely something we lacked last year when Pickens was often the only WR capable of worrying defenses.

This also seems like a good game to utilize the TEs a bit more. With McKitty now fully healthy and having a game under his belt, I like what we can put on the field between him, "Big 0", and Fitzpatrick.

Kenny McIntosh will play a bigger role against Bama.

Maybe not so much in the run game. But he will be out in routes. He could be better than tank Bigsby with the ball in his hands against a linebacker.

I'm thankful that we dont treat running backs as safety valves anymore (who got tired of the 1 yard losses that hit the record books as completions by Fromm to Swift).

McIntosh should be featured as much as the tight ends if not more. He is open and he is dangerous with a ball in hands at full stride.

I wouldn't count the Gators out just yet. If we lose to Bama and UF, Florida could still lose another game and make it to the SECCG.

While we need to beat Bama to show we are ready, at the end of the day none of it matters if we dont beat UF (assuming they dont drop another game)

I’ll take 3-1 vs that lineup any year. I don’t have any jitters about Saturday, if we lose we lose. Win out then play them again at the end of the year. By then our offense should be figured out

I don't think y'all realize how bad the Gators are. I'm expecting LSU to cause big problems for Grantham's defense.

Bama corners have been very good this season. Their problem lies with the safeties and LBs in coverage. Bama also likes to be aggressive with the said safeties, which will again leave the middle wide arse open.

Expect plenty from Jackson in the center of the field as well as McKitty. I'll also look for Kenny Mac to get a lot of work in the passing game.

I think they're going to be very aggressive. Makes me wonder how much we're going to use Burton in the screen game.

I'm worried like all of us, but I think we have as good a chance this year as any. Kiffin's O was ready for them, and I'm not sure we can have the same success, but this D can play with anyone - period. These guys are far from invincible on either line and their coverage up the middle, where Georgia is most effective, is as bad as I've ever seen it at Bama.

Keys are obviously up front and Stetson. Good days from them and UGA wins by more than a score.

Stetson is more than enough at QB if we can give him a pocket.

Pressure with 3 (and a spy) or pressure with 4 are his kryptonite. But that would be said for almost every QB.

The OL needs to have the game of their lives. No blown assignments. Sound technique.

We've got a chance this Saturday. I'm hoping for the best
