Maybe as the HBC in a few years. Smart is on his way out. Will take 5 years but he is on his way.


How many times are you going to post this exact thing?

What inexplicable loss did we have in 2017? I mean, I have no doubt you will say Auburn, but that Auburn team beat two #1 teams both of which played for the National Championship. It's not like Auburn was some run of the mill bad team. I would hardly call that inexplicable.


Losing to Auburn is never inexplicable. Not being competitive with Auburn, especially in the 2017 regular season game, is. We just did not show up. UGA can be beat any weekend but getting blown out and manhandled is usually not something we do....but we seem to have at least one in us every season. Good teams also have a game or two every season where they look bad but manage to win. Was it the Citadel who lead Bama at the half a couple of years ago? Army lead Oklahoma late in the game?? We lose to South Carolina. Winning those games where you just do not show up is a big difference between good teams and kind of good teams.

We haven't had one of those this year. Very few thought we'd beat Bama early....I think most thought it would be closer than it was and, honestly, if we had an offense at all it would've been. And after the UK debacle I don't think many of us were surprised by the UF game. We came close to doing it against Arkansas and UK....I think we caught a break not going to Columbia MO this week....it could've been 2019 USC all over again except on the road instead of at home.

All of our woes, such as they are, and they ain't bad all things being relative, boil down to inefficiency on offense....and that has been a thing at times during each of our previous 4 seasons with Smart. I know the stats look good but when we play a defense we a pulse we have struggled or an offense with a pulse we have struggled and when we play a well balanced team we struggle as anyone does....but we act a fool when we play shitty teams, with the exception of USC in 2019. We do not have to score every possession but we need to move the chains more than we do...our defense is solid to excellent but no body can stay on the field as much as our offense asks our defense to do....

re: Muschamp coming home?
I think Muschamp has gotten too predictable with his defensive schemes and calls. We need a more innovative DC that Kirby will trust to run the defense in-game.
As for Bobo, he might come back as OC but not as a position coach.
What is sorely needed is for McGarity to have a long talk with Kirby and convince him to manage the game and allow his OC and DC to call plays for their sides of the team.

I don't want him out....I would like nothing more than for him to find an offense and win natty's left and right or even SEC titles....but I, like many people, am starting to lose the confidence we once had that this will be the case. I don't think anyone thinks that not winning the east will be acceptable for 4 or 5 years in a row. Denying that Smart has some room for improvement is just wishful thinking. Firing Smart now would be the height of foolishness....3 more years like this? That's still probably 10 wins a season and a nice bowl game and that is OK if that is OK.....but is it OK??? I think most UGA fans would say probably not. Maybe expectations are too high, I kind of agree, but we are close and that won't lower expectations.

Well, I would disagree. I mean, we had a couple of key dropped passes, and fumbled a punt. There were a lot of reasons the score was much worse than it actually should have been, and all easily explainable.

I went to a high school game and saw a team get beat 30-0. The team that got beat was 9-1 at the end of the year and made the playoffs. (This was back when only one team from a Region went to the playoffs. As it turns out the losing team faced the team that trucked them in the playoffs, and lost again, but the score was 10-0, which looked to be a better indication of how good the two teams were.

The difference? In the first game the losing team fumbled the ball 5 times inside their own 20 yard line.

Sometimes things happen. Auburn was a very good team and could have beaten any team badly with a couple of breaks. It's not like Georgia was not prepared, or had a bad game plan. Sometimes things go wrong and they can snowball into a route, when it shouldn't. But to me inexplicable means there is no way that could/should happen. Stuff like that happens all the time.

If we fire Smart for either of those two, that’d be the stupidest move in college football history.


Lol. I've rooted for Georgia for more than 3 decades. If they fire Kirby for Muschamp I'm done.

The fact that people are seriously making this suggesting tells you everything you need to know about the football knowledge of the average fan.
