Here's my little fanpost. I participated in the game threads during the UF game and like most others experienced sheer confusion during the end of the third quarter. I think we all can agree that the first half of the game was outstanding. Most of us envision and expect the dawgs to get 250 yards/quarter and score on nearly every possession. Personally, I was surprised at the success the dawgs were enjoying but as it went on I fully expected the trend to continue in the second half.
Then there's the rest of the story. As it happens, the second half was a repetition of the previous three games. There must be a switch in someone's basement somewhere that turns off the offense/offensive line. Maybe some kid plays with that switch every Saturday when he/she has to do some kind of weekly chore. Coach bobo needs to figure that thing out.
I tend to enjoy internal thought, I don't talk much but my gears are turning all the time. Folks who know me understand that I don't talk much but when I do my words are pretty dense, the result of a lot of contemplation. My take on the situation we find ourselves in is one of a simple word. "It". At the end of the LSU game CMR is quoted as saying "nobody does it better than Georgia". When he spoke those words he was very emotional, his team just won an intense game that had huge positive ramifications. I believe when he said that he was really grasping what it was to be valid. All his work and vision had come to a head, everything he believes in had come to be valid.
I'm afraid that most everyone else outside of Butts-Mehre does not understand exactly what he meant by that statement. When CMR stated that Georgia does "it" better than everyone else I believe he meant that "it" is not football. "It" is simply being a decent humble human being.
You see, Georgia was rolling in the first quarter of the game. UF was down by three scores. At this time, the philosophy of CMR dictates that we don't continue to dominate the opponent because it's rude, unsportsmanlike, can be construed as being a negative human trait. Part of cmr's "it" is football, but football takes a back seat to morality.
It would be nice to know what's going on in this respect. Most all of us fans want the dawgs to go up by 5 scores and completely dominate the opponents for 60 minutes of football. Unfortunately, whatever CMR defines as that "it" won't allow that to happen. Perhaps if we all got on the same page our expectations could be aligned more appropriately. Sure is frustrating, isn't it?
