If You Wonder Why Georgia Fans Are So Mad About Last Saturday . . .


. . . just read the article linked to above. Dr. Saturday is one of the best college football weblogs out there (and it should be noted that Matt Hinton didn't write this), but the popular media meme has taken hold even in that most respected corner of the blogosphere. The video of James Franklin's tirade during the postgame handshake, which shows Mark Richt conducting himself with class and underscores the extent to which Coach Franklin was the instigator of the whole thing, is distorted to suggest that Coach Richt expected his defensive coordinator to tee off on an opposing coach. A comparison is then drawn to last year's incident in Jacksonville. Last year, you will recall, Todd Grantham directed an inappropriate gesture and an inappropriate remark toward an opposing player. He was wrong to do so, and I said so at the time. Last Saturday, James Franklin directed an inappropriate gesture and an inappropriate remark toward an opposing player. He was wrong to do so, and Todd Grantham said so at the time. The proper comparison to what Coach Grantham did last year is to what Coach Franklin did last Saturday, not to what Coach Grantham did in response. If such basic facts are being missed even by weblogs typically as keenly perceptive as Dr. Saturday, well, the rest of the world shouldn't wonder why Bulldog Nation is as incensed as Coach Grantham. Coach Franklin is the bad guy here. Fight the real enemy! Go 'Dawgs!

The Dawg-Gone Podcast is Available for Your Listening Pleasure


Kit Kitchens and I resumed our regular Monday evening college football conversations last night, and I'm going to warn you: we both got a little enthusiastic about the Bulldogs. There may even be some optimism thrown in there. Heck, I'll just say it: there was positive energy. Kit and I are Energy Vampire-Slayers. If you're not prepared for good vibes, don't listen. If you're ready for some football, tune in at your earliest opportunity . . . and don't worry; it's safe for work, provided you consider the word "butt" safe for work. Go 'Dawgs!

Dr. Saturday: Defense, Not Running Game, Source of Georgia's Problems

Dr. Saturday Looks at Todd Grantham's Defense


As always, Matt Hinton reviews the data without passion or prejudice, so he certainly cannot be accused of grinding any axes, although I think his ultimate conclusion is a tad harsh, considering the significance of the shift in scheme. (I suspect a similar look at the Crimson Tide's defense in the first year under Nick Saban would be very nearly as unflattering, although I confess I have not done the math on that.) The good Doctor's handy chart provided a valuable snapshot that showed little overall progress, but a couple of encouraging nuggets could be gleaned from the picture he painted. The Bulldogs' improvement in points per game (from 25.9 to 23.1) and in yards per game (from 339.4 to 335.8) between 2009 and 2010 was minuscule, yet the SEC numbers are more promising. Last year, the Red and Black gave up 31.5 points per game and 379.4 yards per game in SEC outings. This year, Georgia allowed 25.0 points per game and 355.8 yards per game against conference competition. That's a difference of almost a touchdown and almost 25 yards in games against league foes, which, when set alongside twice as many total takeaways and a fivefold increase in fumble recoveries, suggests at least some movement in a positive direction, even if there has been one step back for every two steps forward. By the way, the first commenter following Dr. Saturday's above posting wrote: "Dawgs don't deserve a bowl game." His avatar is a Georgia Tech logo. Go 'Dawgs!
