Georgia vs Clemson: Live Blog – Fourth Quarter


Tailgating stuff here.  Pregame stuff here.  First quarter here.  Second quarter here.  Third quarter here.

 

6:02: In one of the more ridiculous plays I’ve ever seen…Georgia punts for some reason.  Clemson is on the 9 at the end of the day, but that was weird.

6:32: Georgia is getting realllllly close to that “too many mistakes to win a big game” line.  Really close.

7:32: Gurley is a smooth rider.

7:40: TD Clemson.  It would be nice to just be down by 7 right now.

8:50: This is gonna hurt.

10:00: Georgia had several shots at Tajh but he narrowly escaped for a loss of just one.

11:27: Connor Norman appears to have survived being picked on.

14:22: Georgia hit with a chop block.  15 yard penalties don’t usually help.

14:47: Play action get J S-W open for a nice gain on first down.

4Q: 15:00 UGA to receive punt.  Swann back deep.  Game on kids.  Game on.

Georgia vs Clemson: Live Blog – Third Quarter


Tailgating stuff here.  Pregame stuff here.  First quarter here.  Second quarter here.

 

KEEP UP HERE FOR THE FOURTH QUARTER.

0:00: Georgia set to receive a punt to start the fourth.

0:56: Bad snap leads to Georgia not getting the kick off.  Wow.  You’d obviously like to have that one, but I don’t know that this game was going to be won by a FG anyway.

1:15: Hicks is stuffed.  Out comes the FG unit.

4:39: Gurley Hungry!!!!!

4:51: It was crucial to hold Clemson to a FG there.  Georgia succeeded.  

6:04: Tajh Boyd is getting hot.

6:49: This young Georgia defense is about as good as advertised…And that’s not good.

7:58: Quayvon Hicks is not a human being.  And neither is Todd Gurley!!!!!  28-28.

9:05: Nifty fake punt on 4th down to pick up the first.

10:21: Nothin doin for Marshall on the ground.  Might need to try something new.  Outside toss?

10:58: White boy just got exposed.  Great throw.  Great catch.  Clemson goes ahead 28-21.  Georgia’s offense needs to be Georgia’s offense now.

13:58: Right now, Vic Beasly is the game’s MVP.  He has 346 sacks.

3Q: 15:00: J S-W downs the ball.  Georgia begins on the 25.

HALF-TIME.

Georgia vs Clemson: Live Blog – Second Quarter


Tailgating stuff here.  Pregame stuff here.  First quarter here.

 

0:00: Head over here to follow after the half.

1:11: Murray has less than 90 seconds to work.  So naturally a run makes sense.

1:38: Boyd’s receivers have a case of the dropsies.  I’m OK with that.

2:15: Murray gives it right back throwing an interception to a DE who was downfield in coverage.  Clemson runs it back to the 45 or so but draws a personal foul in the process.

2:25: Murray isn’t getting much time back there.  Georgia punts to Watkins, which is always terrifying.  He muffs it, Georgia has it!

3:02: Georgia’s offense is getting a little bit predictable with inside runs.

3:51: Scott-Wesley, the track star, didn’t get a chance at a return.  Georgia takes over on the 25.  A cute little 3:51 scoring drive would be useful before getting the ball back after the half.

3:51: Tremendous patience by Tajh Boyd on that run.  Clemson ties the game 21-21.

3:56: Georgia uses a timeout.  Holding Clemson to a field goal here would be absolutely huge.  Got to think Clemson goes for it on 4th, even if stopped here.

5:45: Huge swing there as  a relatively stagnant Clemson offense now takes over on the 16 following a fumble by Murray.

6:30: Again, nowhere for Marshall to go.  10 carries, 23 yards.

6:43: Random feel-good comment on the defense: Georgia is putting some pressure on Boyd.  He’s 1 of 5 for 2 yards in this quarter.

6:55: For the record, if I said, “It’s hot as hell in this press box,” I would be referring to a really hot summer day in Hell.

7:37: Georgia now has 275 yards.  Clemson is taking over on the 45.  The Tigers have 195 yards of O for the game.

8:14: LT got burned right there. Murray got buried.

9:27: Georgia hit with a chop block penalty after a run of not much.  Now second and 15ish.

09:59: Gurley runs for four.  He’s not averaging under 40 yards per carry.

10:03: Our Team. Our Drive. Our Chocolate Milk in the Press Box.  Our Gurley coming back?

10:20: HUGE hussle play be Herrera to break up a pass downfield.  huge.

10:38: Jordan Jenkins banged up.  Not to be “that” guy, but all these injuries are not a good thing.  Also, Clemson fans, shut up with the booing of injured players.  3rd and 9, you don’t have your best player fake an injury.

11:03: Samuel Watkins just won an Academy Award for that.

13:00: Three UGA backs have scored rushing TDs.  This is the point where I’d like to see more ground-and-ound, but if the Dawgs remain Gurley-less that may be hard to do.

13:00: Hicks carries the ball for a 1-yard TD.  Chad Floyd said he would be a difference maker on the DudeYouPodcast this week.  he knows.

13:16: Really nice job by Aaron Murray.  He extended the play with his legs (something he wanted to work on this offseason.  He directed traffic.  He found Rantavious Wooten who wooted down field nicely and might have scored.  It’s under review.

13:59: Marshall is continuing to not find space, but at least Georgia is resting its offense.

2Q: 15:00: Tied game.  Lots of offense.  218 yards for Georgia, 179 for Clemson.

Georgia vs Clemson: Live Blog – First Quarter


Live coverage from the Press Box where I just finished watching Jeopardy and drinking chocolate milk.  Seriously.

 

SECOND QUARTER GOING ON HERE.

0:00: Murray runs for 10.  Boyd has 8 yards rushing, Murray 10.

0:45: Hold on Georgia. Marshall has 7 carries for just 20 yards.

1:17: Nice hands by Scott-Wesley, who struggled in that area at times last year.

2:12: Quayyyyyytron.

2:20: Georgia takes over on the 3.

2:30: Great pressure by Jordan Jenkins there.  Fourth down, Clemson to punt.

2:59: Nice contain on that run by Watkins.

3:59: No sign that Georgia learned to stop the run this summer.

4:12: Keith Marshall put a lot of weight on this summer.  It paid off on that run.  Nice play call, lots of power on that finish.

4:51: Michael Bennett plays DB and breaks up an INT.

7:04: Malcolm Mitchell has a knee injury.

8:01: PI on Clemson.  Tigers be tryin to cheat.

8:50: Michael Bennett, yall.  A long, slow drive would be nice here.

8:58: ACC speed is a thing too.

9:29: Already we’ve seen Todd Gurley, Damian Swann and Malcolm Mitchell back as returners.

9:29: Tajh Boyd Touchdown.  Clemson leads 6-0  Extra point makes it 7.

10:52: The Clemson faithful boos Leonard Floyd as they don’t think he’s really hurt.  I think that’s rude.

11:11: Here’s that Clemson offense.

12:17: The defense is out waiting during the TO.  They look like they have a bit of swagger if I may so.

12:17: Murray has time in the pocket but is off target.  Solid punt by Barber.  Watkins forced to fair catch.

13:41: HUGE 3-and-out to open the game by an allegedly bad Georgia defense.

14:41: Sterling Bailey on the pursuit.  Great tackle on first down.  Gain of 0.

Q1: 15:00: Let’s do this sucker.  Georgia wins the toss. Defers – bold move – until second half.  So here comes a young defense.  Do it Todd Grantham.  Do it evil Richt.

2:30 until Kickoff: Georgia players don’t play.  Talking all kinds of trash while Tigers run down a hill.

7 minutes to Kickoff: If you’re just now joining me, where have you been all my life?  Also, here are some scenes from tailgating today.  And here is some footage I captured down on the field.

10 Minutes to Kickoff: Solid national anthem from what I could tell.  America is proud.

8:02 p.m. – Georgia fans, you are officially on notice.  This ACC crowd showed up and showed up hard.  Stadium was packed with 40 minutes to go before kickoff.

 

A few tweeters from down on the field…
