I am not a fan of booing your own team. I guess that is why I am not a Florida fan because they rained boos down on the Gators and even started a “Fire Muschamp” chant after another Mizzou score. I understand that Florida is playing terribly and you are unhappy with how the team is playing, but under no circumstance should you ever boo your own team. Leave the game instead! I mean booing 18-21 year olds is just counter-productive. What makes you think that they will actually want to play better for a group of fans that seemingly wants nothing to do with them? They will be so tight that they are going to be afraid to make a mistake. That is something that should happen to the opposing teams when they visit, not the home team itself. Here is the full video.
Never Change Johnny
Johnny Football was not on the field for the Aggies on saturday, and honestly I do not think it would have mattered considering how lights out the Crimson Tide played. Johnny Football did take to Twitter to show his thoughts on the game, and I imagine a lot of Aggie fans felt the same way around halftime. Honestly, I did not expect the complete dominance that Alabama showed on saturday, but my goodness did I love it. Here is Johnny Football’s tweet.
Polls: Mean Nothing
The new AP poll has come out and 5 SEC teams are in the top 10, while LSU has snuck itself back into the top 25 at number 23. Alabama found its way back into the top 5 at number 4 after dominating Texas A&M, and Georgia is sitting pretty at number 9. This weekend we have a few key match-ups that can shake up the polls yet again with LSU hosting Ole Miss and even South Carolina at Auburn. If there is a game the Ol’ Ball Coach needs to win, it is this game. Here is the full rankings after a great weekend of college football.

UGifA: Chubb Goes Beast Mode, Mason is Targeted, and the Best GIFs and Vines from UGA’s Win Over Arkansas
Fun story: a long time ago, longer than I care to admit, I wrote for the illustrious Red and Black – the student newspaper at UGA. I only wrote 4-5 columns during my sophomore year back when I was flirting with majoring in journalism. Now, the fun part of the story is this: here is an actual sentence I wrote in 2006 for the R&B, “I know we have Stafford, but I want to see Joe T start every game.”
That brings us back to this past week when Todd was suspended. I wrote an open letter to Greg McGarity that all of you wonderful people shared and shared and shared and shared. I wrote really dumb stuff for a major student newspaper but I’m not sure I’ve ever had anything read by that many people. That was due to you all. From the deepest of my feels places, I say ‘thanks.’
I wrote another thing, though, on the Twitter the day Todd got suspended. Remember that time I tweeted this….
Yeah… I’m gonna stick to open letters from now on.
On to the current foobawl!
BEFORE WE BEGIN: THIS LADY THO
There were very few pundits who didn’t expect UGA to have trouble in Little Rock. UGA had yet to establish any sort of passing threat, the Hogs had just played Bama to within a point, and no one really believed in UGA’s defense because of how terrible Maty Mauk played last week.
You really couldn’t blame them, either. UGA was coming off a big win, they were on the road, and had a desperately needed week off waiting for them. This was the classic recipe for a Trap Game, just like grandma used to make it.
The first drive of the game was an easy score for the Hawgs, and it looked like every UGA’s fears were about to be realized.
MIKE BOBO IS A GAWD AND NEVER SHOULD BE FIRED
Hutson Mason threw two long passes THAT WERE COMPLETE and then scored on a QB sneak.
This is an old tweet but it needed to find its way into this column.
The key thing about all this is that UGA, a typically run-first team, came out slanging because they saw a weakness they could exploit. Then UGA went out and ACTUALLY EXECUTED.
After that drive, you began to get the feeling that it was gonna be UGA’s day. Especially when…
A TARGETING CALL WENT UGA’S WAY IS THIS EVEN LEGAL
I mean, the ball had just left his hands and getting to hit the quarterback is like catnip to linebackers – they just can’t resist. In truth, this hit is legal IF Matthews hits Mason in the torso. But as you can see, you lead with the crown of the helmet and go high you’re gonna get thrown out every time.
Also, no one has less sympathy for Arkansas fans than UGA fans.
I HAD FORGOTTEN WHAT A ‘SCOOP n’ SCORE’ WAS CAN WE EVEN DO THAT
UGA’s defense actually looks like a defense. And not even just a defense. Like…a GOOD defense. Hence when the Hogs went for it on 4th down late in the 2nd Qtr this happened….
That’s Freshman DB Dominick Sanders btw. After the Carolina game, when you said, “UGA’s Secondary is gonna get better” your tone was probably tinged with sarcasm in that they basically couldn’t get any worse so they must get better.
After this game when you say “UGA’s Secondary is gonna get better” you have that ‘holy crap’ tone in your voice because these young guys getting after the ball could be a sight to see one of these days.
NICK CHUBB SAY ‘CHUBBYE!’ ON HIS WAY TO BEAST MODE STATUS
The kid is real good, y’all. Real, real good.
Chubb finished with 202 yards.
But then the focus was back on the REAL dynamic, playmaker at UGA…
DAMIAN SWANN GOIN FULL NFL OUT HERE Y’ALLLLLLLLLLLL
Two feet down. Pay that man, Amoral Most Popular Violent Sport in America.
The Dawgs went into the half up 38-6 and every elated UGA fan opened up another bottle of beer/bottle of wine/kiddie pool full of Everclear.
THE GIF THAT SUMS UP ARKANSAS’ FIRST HALF
In the second half, the Dawgs slept-walk through the entire Third Quarter. Allowing Arkansas to creep back into the doorway. Thanks in part to…
THE HIGHEST TOUCHDOWN PASS I HAVE EVER SEEN
This pass to Hunter Henry took 12 hours to fall down. In fact, it may have not even landed yet because I can’t find a GIF or a Vine of it.
But afterwards Henry, as is his right after catching something that literally fell from outer space, hit the ref in the face with the ball.
Arkansas then rallied to bring the score to 45-32. But, in the end, the 161 yards after contact for Nick Chubb (READ THAT AGAIN BECAUSE IT IS AMAZING) were too much for the Razorbacks. The game ended, meaning…
ARKANSAS HAS NOW LOST 16 STRAIGHT CONFERENCE GAMES
Hey Arkansas fans, make sure you drink respons….oh man….
Be safe out there, Hog fans. Literally everyone is glad they are not you.
Georgia has to be considered an SEC contender – if not a favorite – at this juncture.
It’s hard not to like a comparatively easy schedule, an improving defense and an offense that rolls even without its best player.
More on this subject here, but what do you all think? Is it fair to lump Georgia up with the Alabama and Mississippi schools?
Share your thoughts in the comments.
After rewatching some Arkansas games this week, I feel better about today.
Arkansas runs the ball really well and that’s really it. A one trick Pig can be beat, but read more about the players to watch and keys to the game here.
