    TR, like I posted earlier....there's lots of whistling past the graveyard going on in this thread.

      He allowed Oklahoma to hang half a hundred on him with a month of preparation, what good offenses or defenses did he play against the last two years? The only two quarterbacks that he played that threw the ball down the field ate his defense (10 of 11 starters upper classmen) up. He went conservative in multiple games on offense to protect leads including almost the entire second half. No one is arguing what he is doing talent wise, but it's only part of the equation. He did very well in year 2, but it's year 2.

      I think this was their chance to win it without much competition on their schedule. They lose a lot of experience and skill this year so next year they will probably fall back to the pack a little but they'll be stacked going forward. The good thing is we know that spread type teams are what give Saban and Smart defenses trouble and Mullen should be on his third excellent recruiting class loading our roster with exactly those players. The next time the leghumpers are ready to compete, we should be right there in the battle for the east.

      He took Saban to OT. Yeah, he sucks. Hilarious.

      I'm not picking on you, I just think dismissing this as some fluke year is funny.

      So you say don't judge by one game, then you do the same? Where would this Bama national title team rank among Saban's teams? If Bama didn't stub there toe against Auburn would UGA even be in the game last night? Freeze beat Saban twice was he building the next great dynasty?

      Hardly...I took the whole season. Mayfield is an ass but a helluva QB. The job Smart did on Auburn was outstanding. Hell, he beat OU and took the GOAT into OT. F UGA! But I gotta call it like I see it.

      ANd who says dynasty? He's doing something not UGA right now. That's all.

      F the dawgs. Concede nothing to them. As Chesty Puller famously once said when surrounded....They are on our right....they are on our left....they’re in front of us..and behind us.....they can’t get away this time!

      We can acknowledge Kirbys ascension to sainthood without conceding nothing. But he is still recruiting bulldogs and bulldogs do what bulldogs do. Hasn’t changed for 40 ****ing years. They are the FSU of the SEC. FSU has been putting together monster classes but other than with Jameis they ain’t won jacksh*t. Mediocre results loaded with 4/5 stars.

      Analysis shows that the teams that win championships are those that put top classes together. It does not show that every team that puts top classes together win championships. The dawgs will continue to choke.

      It’s our turn. Stand the **** by.

      This is false. ON Rivals, Richt had three top 5 classes in 15 years. Smart will have 2 in three years with the other being a transition class. They have NEVER recruited like this. I feel like this is Mac all over again. Ignoring reality instead of dealing with it.

        Kirby is a great coach but he didn’t take Saban to OT. The kicker choked and took them to OT. Hit the chip shot and there is your NC.

        What Saban did was school his old assistant. Major halftime adjustment and hung 26 on Kirby in the 2nd half. T

          I look at what he was done in year 2, beat up on a really $hitty SEC East. Played two quarterbacks that threw the forward pass and they ate up his defense. He played a dynamic offensive Oklahoma team and the defense played like they were in the Big 12. They play Muschamp Ball most of the season because that is their DNA. Bama score 20 in the second half, and UGA really had no answer. Kirby lacked the killer instinct to put Bama down.

          No one said that either... people on here about to crown Kirby like people were ready to crown Muschamp after going 11-2 or Mac after 2 SEC East Titles... it's year 2 against extremely watered down competition. But same people ready to crown Kirby, same ones that are willing bad mouth the other people. He will win games on talent alone, but winning games and winning championships (making a dynasty as some posters on here claim). Its more than talent.

          Not dealing with it? Really....Mullen is not dealing with it? What I said is absolutely true. Championship teams recruit top classes but every team that recruits top classes do not win the championship. I will concede to UGA’s greatness when they win a championship....even if it takes another 40 years. I’m not handling them a trophy until they win it on the field.

          In the meantime Mullen is putting together a very strong program....staff and stars. I can not agree that he is in some kind of denial and taking a lackadaisical approach. Mullen is Mac all over again?

          LOL. I am talking about folks like you. No one said to give anything to Smart that he did not earn but to IGNORE what he's doing in recruiting is a joke to me. Just like people talked positively about Mac until he was fired. It's denial. If Mullen did what Smart just did you would be singing a different tune, of that I am sure.

            Who said Dynasty? Some whack-a-doodle? It's too early to say anything besides he is building something...what is yet to be determined.

            BTW, he just won the SEC in his 2nd year. That's not some stupid made up crap division title. That was the weakest garbage ever. Pimping winning the East.

            What is Mullen not doing? Who is ignoring what Kirby is doing? It is universally acknowledged what Kirby is doing. It’s all there in black and white. But he has to win it on the field.

            that is what I'm saying, his game planning leaves a bunch to be desired... but he is building talent, better than the previous guy at his current rate.

            So did Chizik and Richt

            Like the SEC? Wait, so now YOU are acknowledging that Smart is actually doing something great? Because you made this outrageous claim:

            "Mediocre results loaded with 4/5 stars."

            Winning the SEC, a playoff game and taking the title game and Saban to OT is mediocre?

            You are full of it, dude. That is exactly what I am talking about.

            Like I said, we will find out. Smart is recruiting better than both of those guys so we'll see.

            Which is why you always have to wait until year 3 or 4, unless the guy is an abject failure. Chizik was a national title holder in year 2, I think he is currently doing TV work.
