        My pleasure. I’m glad you all are safe after the storm year we’ve had. Having a means to watch our Gators sounds like an added bonus under the circumstances. You guys keep hanging on. We just finished a big storm of sorts here on the mainland ;)

            Man you nailed it.

            I fired him and TG early, went on the roller coaster.... but man stomping the dawgs is always great however you get there.
            OL was really good until Reese went down, that probably sums it up. Run blocking still meh, but pass blocking the depleted runts was very good.
            Trask is definitely a rhythm guy, pulling him to run something else knocks him out of his zone, so does trying to run ball control. Control the scoreboard not the clock
            Damn backs catching the ball, hallelujah, but why did we keep trying the WR screens... wheel > screen
            Man the pass coverage is still a confused mess, no one seems to know their assignments. Either every player is an idiot, or the coaches can’t. Thank goodness they couldn’t throw and catch because they stopped themselves

            A good morning, for some reason my nephews in GA have not returned my texts this morning ;)

            have to admit trepidation set in between Mullen going conservative and Grantham......

                  Great as usual, in today's game your offense must be very good. Ours was and theirs was not. Similar in the big game with Clemson, with their regular QB the mistakes that cost them the game probably would not happen. Our D is only fair, little to no early pressure on the QB, major mistakes in coverage, I don't know if it is coaching, talent, or most likely a combination of them. Win out the regular season and we get at worse a major bowl, win out and the final four is ours.

                    Seeing Davis catching passes out of the backfield brought flashbacks of Robert Gillespie.

                      Good comparison. Your post made me think I should have mentioned that Davis might have not only found a niche, but also a way to atone for his fumble against TAMU. Gillespie is still coaching RBs at UNC. Solid guy, I believe. Great Gator, I know!

                            Davis could almost be a WR, he has really good hands. He needs to be a permanent part of the passing game moving forward this season.

                              As I mentioned in another thread, not just Davis, but the RB position needed to be a PRIMARY target in the passing game more often, not just as the outlet. Took way too many years for this to occur, but better late than never.

                                So many years thinking to myself as we watched some of these games "Why are their receivers so big and physical while ours are so small? Why can they go up high and get those jump balls but we can't? Why can they hit back shoulder throws and we can't figure it out? Why can they throw passes downfield to the RB and we never even try? Why do they have 3 great TE while we have none? Why can their RBs deal out punishment and get extra YAC but ours just get blasted backward?"

                                We are close boys. We need recruiting and some transfers to fill some holes but we are getting there and its fun to watch.

                                Keep in mind Mullen is 48 years old. Plenty old enough to already have had success, but also have some perspective that at 48 years old Saban was still years away from having national level success. Stay the course.

                                    I want to believe this, but don;t think we will have have high level enough coaching to get to the top. The recruiting needs to be shored up as I watched the ND-CLEM game I said we do not have ONE defensive player that would start (as currently playing) on either of those teams. So I wondered if it is all talent, all coaching or a bit of both? I have to think that one or two of our defensive players could be improved by a better instructor.

                                      I too have mocked Kirby for the QB debacle but the reality is that the decision was not as obvious as it is in hindsight

                                      Although Fromm is clearly less talented than Fields with a much lower ceiling, let’s not forget that Fromm had led Georgia to within an OT touchdown of a national championship as a freshman.

                                      I agree that Fields most likely would have performed well, what would everyone say if he struggled?

                                      What would the fallout be from replacing a QB under those circumstances?

                                      Glad it didn’t work out for them

                                        Great write up, cover2. Agree with a lot of that. As far as the uga injuries talk, I really don’t care who they had out. I don’t recall any asterisk next to their win in 2018 when we had Stewart out and lost Henderson on the first series, and they spent the whole day picking on McWilliams. Nor do they ever get a “yeah but” for 2007 when Tebow couldn’t run due to his shoulder. They’ve got talent everywhere and if they’re not ready, and our guys are, that’s just more of a win.

                                          Didn't stop Saban from replacing Hurts with Tua, which in fact occurred in the very NC game you mentioned.
