Todd Gurley’s Appeal Denied

To no one’s surprise, Todd Gurley’s appeal was denied yesterday by the NCAA. There was just no way the NCAA was going to go back on their punishment because in their minds, it’d make them look weak. What’s interesting, though, is that Georgia really thought they had a good chance of getting the case overturned. Last night, the University released this statement:

 

“We are very disappointed in tonight’s decision by the Division I Student-Athlete Reinstatement Committee regarding our appeal on Todd Gurley’s eligibility reinstatement. We believe our case to the NCAA for Todd’s immediate reinstatement was strong and compelling. However, we now have exhausted all available options and look forward to Todd’s return to competition on November 15. The full attention of the Bulldog Nation now needs to be focused on our team and Saturday’s important game against Florida.”

 

I could go on and on about the NCAA and how crooked they are, but I’ll save that for a future post. For now, let’s all turn our full attention to beating the Gators for the fourth year in a row.

Five Keys for Georgia to Beat Florida

Here are Gentry Estes’ five keys for Georgia to beat Florida.

I really don’t even think UGA needs to do five certain things to beat this terrible Florida team, so I’ll just name 3:

Stop Treon Harris Running the BallOne thing the Georgia defense has struggled with in recent years is mobile quarterbacks. Now Harris is no Nick Marshall or even Connor Shaw, but the guy is very athletic, and if UGA doesn’t have someone spying him, he could run all over this defense.

Watch for the Trick PlayWill Muschamp has nothing to lose. He can read the writing on the wall, and he knows that his time in Gainesville is coming to an end quickly. He will try anything and everything, regardless of how risky, to try to beat his alma mater. UGA needs to be aware of this at all times, meaning they need to be on the look out for onside kicks, fake punts, and little trick plays in the backfield.

Open Up Running LanesAs atrocious as this Florida team has been, they’ve actually done a great job stopping the run, holding opponents to only 117 yds/gm (4th in the country). If Georgia is able to open up running lanes and Nick Chubb can get going, this will be a very long game for the gators. Now, I don’t think this Georgia team needs to have a dominating rushing attack because teams have still been able to beat Florida without one, but if they can establish the run, I give the Gators a 0% chance of leaving Jacksonville with a “W.”

 

I’ll just leave this here

 

**WARNING**: All of these keys could go flying out the window come Saturday because this is the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, and as we all know, ANYTHING can happen.

NFL Football: Florida Hate Week + Week 9 Picks


If you’re up to date with the not-yet award winning Dude You Podcast, then you know how lukewarm this hate week has been for me. Not because I don’t hate Florida, never that; this is a school that ruined my childhood of Georgia fandom. I was pretty sure that it was a rule that Georgia lose this game until I was about 20, and by then, I had the warm embrace of alcohol to numb the sadness. We sit on the cusp of not only an expected strong showing against the school in Gainesville, but for an opportunity to produce secure a senior class that has NEVER lost to Florida.

Read that again. N-E-V-E-R. 16 year old Daniel’s head just exploded.

Georgia stealing one of these games used to be a rarity, and last night, Jason and I (Run The Pod) basically joked about margin of victory after he went on one of his patented ridiculous fan fiction stories outlining how Florida can win this game. So, please recognize that my lukewarm approach to #FloridaHateWeek is not a dimming of passion against the Gators, oh no. It’s more a quiet recognition that I’m screaming into the abyss that has become the Florida fan base. Whether it’s ones who can write (Spencer Hall) or ones who shouldn’t be allowed near a keyboard (twitter), the reaction from Florida faithful has been somewhere between apathy and openly cheering against their team. Hey Florida fans, can you at least fake it so that I don’t feel like we’re all on the same team? Takes all the fun out of beating you.

Nailed It.

Well, not ALL the fun. ON TO THE PICKS.

As always, home team is in bold.

Panthers (-3) over Saints

That thing little kids do to make a fart noise by blowing against their hand? That’s the sound of the NFC South.

Browns (-6.5) over Buccaneers

In winning this bet, please be sure not to be exposed directly to the NFC South. These warnings are for your own well being.

Cardinals (+4) over Cowboys

Time to play Who is Going to Ruin this Cowboys Season? Early leader is Jerry Jones in the being Jerry Jones division, but let’s not forget Tony Romo’s Back, Jason Garret’s Gingerness and the fact that Brandon Weedon might be involved in some of these upcoming games. You can play at home too! Just remember, Jerry Jones being Jerry Jones is undefeated for like 20 years now.

Eagles (-2) over Texans

You’ve really got to ask your self if getting Clowney back offsets trotting out Ryan Harvard Fitzpatrick again this week. I think not. #SafetySchool EVERYBODY INTO THE POOL.

 

Chiefs (-9.5) over Jets

How does Rex Ryan still have a job? I mean, I’m not great at this, but it’s not technically a job. Still, if I showed the general lack of competency week after week, the Dude would either sit me down to fix things, or just change the site password so I couldn’t post. This isn’t a shot at Chad’s DudeYouGamblin posts, but it’s not not a shot at Chad’s DudeYouGamblin posts.

Bengals (-11) over Jags

Rough week for the people of Jacksonville. First they get to watch a man get fired on the field (sorry Will!) but then they get treated to watching their hometeam get beat up by the Bungals. Good times!

Dolphins (-2.5) over Chargers

West coast playing an early game back east. Old gambling trick.

Vikings (EVEN) over Washington Professional Football Team

I got in a real life conversation with a mouth-breather regarding the name of Washington’s football team, and if your best defense is, ‘this is the way it’s always been done,’ then congrats on being the NCAA.

Niners (-10) over Rams

Please don’t gamble on this game.

Patriots (+3) over Broncos

THIS is a marquee matchup that should probably be in primetime so I could bet on Peyton and not watch it.  Now I honestly have no idea what’s going to happen, but I have learned my lesson about betting against the Pats at home this season.

Seahawks (-15) over Raiders

NOPE.

Ravens (-2) over Steelers

I know it’s not logical to think that Ben threw all his touchdowns last week, but you can’t prove it’s not true.

Colts (-3) over Giants

Don’t watch this game. Watch Killer Mike give you advice on life. First time I clicked on this video, I thought it would be a joke too, but it’s actually just legit life advice.

Last Week: 9-6

Season: 54-47-4

Love this? Hate it? Think I’m an idiot? Don’t just curse at me under your breath, head to the Dude You Podcast iTunes page, and leave a 5-star review to make sure I know it, and have your voice heard on the air.

Crootin': Clemson Passes Georgia In National Rankings, EVERYBODY PANIC!


Georgia is in great shape to finish the recruiting season as a top 3 class. If Georgia can get a couple of key guys to flip then they will definitely be challenging the Tide for first place. The real shocker is that Clemson has found its way into the top 3 by hopping over Georgia and landing just behind Alabama and number 2. It comes as a shock to me because if I am a recruit, and I saw how bad they got beat in the first game against UGA, I am committing elsewhere.

Here is a breakdown of the current standings:

  • Alabama: Top Recruit- Calvin Ridley WR (5 stars)

 

  • Clemson: Top Recruit: Ray-Ray McCloud ATH (I think we know who the award for best name goes to)

 

  • Georgia: Top Recuit: Terry Godwin ATH (5 stars)

 

  • South Carolina: Top Recruit: Jalen Christian ATH (4 stars)

 

  • Tennessee: Top Recruit: Kahill McKenzie DL (5 stars)

 

Clearly the SEC is dominating recruiting yet again, and it looks to only get better for the SEC as more athletes will sign their letters of intent on signing day. Georgia has the most complete class outside of Alabama, and Clemson is ahead of Georgia solely because of a couple late 4 star commits. Once signing day rolls around look out for FSU, Auburn, and Georgia all to make a push to beat the Crimson Tide for top class in the country.

Weekly Viewing Guide: Who’s Rooting for Petrino?


When I was watching the College Football Playoff reveal show on Tuesday night, the commentators highlighted the fact that UCLA was ranked #22. They felt it important to note that Michigan State was in the same spot in last year’s first BCS rankings. Apparently, by some magic, 22 is a spot in which you’re guaranteed to rise. Michigan State 2013 played defense and UCLA 2014 does not, however, and they failed to mention that the first BCS rankings came out after week 8 whereas these are a week later. IMPORTANT DISTINCTIONS!

Taking the cynicism out, the point being made was that anyone currently ranked has, at worst, an outside shot of making the final four (even Duke!)

Thursday Thriller

1) #2 Florida State at #25 Louisville (7:30, ESPN): I’m legitimately excited for this one. Apparently Louisville students petitioned to get better third down music, and will be mixing “Never Scared” by Bonecrusher and “Ruff Ryders Anthem” by DMX into their rotation.

Also, on the most recent DudeYouPodcast, I put the Noles on upset alert. Like, they’re long overdue for a loss, right? 1-6 against the spread this year, have played pitifully on the road (they gave up 41 to an N.C. State team who has a longer ACC losing streak than Arkansas’ SEC streak…yeesh), and their D has taken a significant step backwards since losing Jeremy Pruitt. And their new uniforms are hideous.

Friday

Nope. Do so at your own risk.

Another Week, More Atrocious Noon Football

My advice: find a ranked team you are interested in and learn about them. That…doesn’t really help this weekend.

1a) #24 Duke at Pitt (ESPNU): Pitt is fascinatingly bipolar and Duke should be favored in every game it plays until the ACC Championship.
1b) #18 Oklahoma at Iowa State (FS1): Boomer Sooner could jump back into the title hunt with some help from Baylor, or they could implode. Angry SoonerNation is the best SoonerNation.
1c) The only other ranked team is recently-underperforming #23 ECU at Temple, and there are your regular B1G snoozers (Wisconsin at Rutgers, Maryland at Penn State) as well as a game between ACC Coastal contenders who may not even make bowl games with UNC at Miami.

3:30 Not Much Signal Interference, Enjoy the Sweet Sounds of Uncle Verne

1) #11 Georgia vs. Florida (CBS): Fun things to watch this week include Florida’s offense and someone tracking Jeremy Foley’s every move postgame.
2) #7 TCU at #20 West Virginia (ABC/ESPN2): S’go ‘Neers, and we in Georgia will provide some couches for you to burn. Your definite “previous channel easy flip” pick of the week.
3) Purdue at #15 Nebraska (ABC/ESPN2): Someone beat these corn-growing fools.
4) Kansas at #13 Baylor (FS1): As former Kansas coach Charlie Weis may say: Baylor has a decided schematic advantage. And talent advantage. And home field advantage.

I’ll Just Say It: We’ll All Be Drunk for the Night Games

In the words of Mallory Archer: “That’s what happens when you drink all day and skip lunch!” It’s Cocktail Party week, folks.

1) #3 Auburn at #4 Ole Miss (7, ESPN): Ummmmm, yes please. The first of a great many shakedown games in the SEC West.
2) Stanford at #5 Oregon (7:30, FOX): Stanford’s ploddingness (it’s now a word) has been the Duck-killer the past two years. Three, and the nation’s (I guess) second-best conference is out of the title hunt.
3) Arkansas at #1 Mississippi State (7:15, ESPN2): Is it just me, or does Mississippi State play exclusively at home this year? #CLANGACLANGACLANGA.
4) Oklahoma State at #9 Kansas State (8, ABC): Wait, you mean to tell me the ABC game isn’t some piddlysquat B1G game? SPEAK WITH YOUR REMOTES, PEOPLE!
5) #10 Notre Dame at Navy (8, CBS), Illinois at #16 Ohio State (8, ABC/ESPN3): Dear God, the piddlysquat B1G may still come to your boxes via ABC. Run.

Late Night 

1) #12 Arizona at #22 UCLA, #17 Utah at #14 Arizona State (10:30, ESPN; 11, FS1; respectively): Television programmers now have the goal of putting football on from noon until 4am, and this week, they have succeeded.

Enjoy the games, folks!
