The Morning After Pill

Aborting everything you thought you knew about Georgia football.

Well, it's Sunday morning and I'm confused. I'm past the point of trying to understand what we're doing, and more along the lines of attempting to make sense of what is happening. Does Joe Cox suck or is he good? Is our defense good or does it suck? WHY THE FRICK CAN WE NOT STOP THE REDONKULOUS TURNOVERS?!!?

A few things became clear to me last night:

#1. If we don't stop playing poorly in the first 1/2 once we get into the upper-tier SEC opponents (LSU, Florida, and perhaps even Tennessee?!?) the game will get out of hand early and no amount of AJ Green awesomeness will save us.

#2. I thought Willie would use 2009 as his platform to shut up the critics. It appears as though his platform was supported by his same old playbook, thus collapsing the platform and killing several small children playing near it. The Dawg Nation isn't happy with this fellow.

#3. Great, young talent at Tight End is a warm and fuzzy feeling I look forward to every game.

#4. Our committee of running backs seemed to get better with Caleb King returning, but I have reason to doubt the Arkansas defense wasn't doing their best to make our guys look good. Also Carlton Thomas is a very small person, running him into the middle of a defensive line seems a little mismatched.

#5. The next time we have multiple false starts I would love for Coach Richt to burn a timeout just to pull our line off to the side and holler at them. I know he never would and timeouts can be valuable, but to show a little emotion and fire on the sidelines would go a long way toward letting us know he cares.

#6. My Pantsless Previews are in serious need of revision. Of course I will boast I had us at 2-1, though I picked us to lose at Arkansas instead of Okie State (which has turned out better for our SEC hopes). Hopefully with a little wiggle room in my workload I'll be able to crank out a few adjusted predictions this week.

There are several other things I'd like to write about but I can't seem to string them together in any meaningful way and it would make for one huge run-on post. Hopefully I'll sort a few things out and get my act together before Monday.

Great points, Mackie. Regarding #5, I would like to know that he got after a lot of people at times, especially certain members of his staff. Sometimes leaders need to have a good ole dose of 'SOB' in 'em.
