The essence of the problem...Lack of DISCIPLINE!


I have had many supervisors.  Some I liked, some were just...eh, some I HATED.  I gotta say the ones who made me better at what I do where the ones I was scared of and hated.  They got me to produce because the fear I had of failing them was a very real motivator.  I might have hated them, but I sure as heck respected them.  When the game is tight, when it gets tough, thats where you find out what you are made of.  When you are in the midst of feeling that "pinch", there is no greater motivator than fear.  It sucks, but it is true.  I am sorry, but this team has no balls.  There are guys who do, like our top three(Green, Curran, Butler).  As a team overall though, we do not.  If you were an LSU, Alabama, or Florida, would you be scared of our Defense or Offense, or dare I say Special Teams?  No.  Heck no.  We tackle poorly (most of the time), we make dumb mistakes, commit bone head penalties, and just all around poop the bed with no fear of the consequences.  There is no retribution at practice.  There can't be with the way it just keeps happening, and happening and happening.  Inflexibility or ill advised calls from certain coaches don't help either.  Even I could figure out how to beat Martinez because of his inability to adjust or abandon what was working.  Take some risks Willie!  Do you think soldiers liked Patton?  Probably not all of them,but they all respected him.  Believe that.  Look at the results he produced.  Patton ran through France like poop through a stinking goose until he out ran his supply line.  Do you think they sang kumbaya around the campfire and had "I'm okay, you're okay" talks?  Heck no.  We lack an edge, we lack a killer instinct.  These guys face no consequences, and if they do, they have no teeth, no effect to generate fear.  A lack of discipline exists from the top down.  From Richt to the practice squad.  I love this team, I love the University, win or lose.  If we don't make changes and make them fast, we will have more of the same.  We must be vicious, we must be fast.  Fleet footed and able, assassins of our opponents physical abilities and motivations.  We need to be heart breakers and momentum takers.   We need to be junkyard DAWGS!  Cold and calculated, unforgiving in our precision.  Big plays should not be celebrated excessively in shocked surprise, they should be expected based on execution and precision.  Act like you've been there before, and walk away like you knew it was gonna happen all along.  You break your opponents and walk away like it was nothing.  No swagger or smugness to give them motivation for next year, just cold hard conclusive results.  Take everything and leave nothing.  Until we find a way to instill discipline and break our opponents. the Red and Black will not be feared, we will be beaten like we have been this year, over and over again.  The team really has taken on Richt's laid back Joe Cool persona.  CMR is a great man, but he's gotta find that guy with "Patton/Erk-esque" mentality that will make people more willing to let their own momma down than that man, whoever they may be.  This post may be harsh, but I think it is exactly what his team needs.  A kick in the a#@ that will turn out to be the shot in the arm we need.  Go Dawgs!
