Good thing our offense is absolutely sick huh! Hey what's the over/under on UGA football players that will be suspended and/or arrested this week?

Oh and will UGA have a celebration for their Fulmer Cup victory?

Look, lets be honest...if there is one program from whom UGA should not be hearing smack talk of any time, even retaliatory smack talk, it is Auburn and GT. UGA has completely owned those programs recently. Anything you say is overwhelmed and drowned out by the game film from the last 4 years.

You still didn't answer my question? And how was the weedeater bowl last year? I was busy finishing up Christmas shopping on the 28th, that's one of the good things about new years day bowls you know.

Little touchy aren't we? I think he was just giving you a hard time, like most rivals do. Lighten up...

By the way, I guess in 2008 you were able to do a lot of shopping since your bowl game was around thanksgiving... :P

Not touchy at all just giving it back :D this is my favorite part of the year and the trash talk is one of the reasons why, believe me I'm the last one to get touchy about college football and actually yes in 08 I was able to get my shopping done very effectively it was bittersweet because we were absolutely atrocious but as some may remember I was extremely vocal in wanting Tubs gone since early in the season. As a side note my finals studying suffered that year because of the coaching search.

I think the over/under is 2. But don't quote me. And if you look 45 seconds into this video, you will see what out great friend Terrelle Pryor has to say about it.

All in good fun... and trust me, I was more than willing to accept a weedeater bowl if it meant getting rid of willie. So I understand where you're coming from...

On a side note, I can't wait for the au-msu game thursday. Should be a good one...

Auburn had a few players suspended this weekend too as I recall. It wasn't for being arrested, because football players don't get arrested in Auburn Alabama, but your players drink and party and get into trouble just like every other team. The Auburn Family thing is fine for a recruiting slogan, but don't take it to heart. Auburn has had more attrition than any other SEC team over the last few years, including a lot under Chizik, and that's not because your team is such a tight knit group of choirboys.

As for Newton, I'd hold off on celebrating his greatness until he has a couple of SEC games under his belt. He had a very nice 16 yard scramble to get out of trouble. Most of his other runs were where the defense left the field wide open. The touchdown pass to Carr was a moonball launched off his back foot. Against good defenses, that has a high risk of being picked off. The two touchdowns to Fannin were wide open, no defense at all. Plays like those and the long touchdown run (with no defenders in the picture) are nice for padding stats, but they don't give much indication for what will happen against better defenses.

Shirley U. Jest, UGA has had more players arrested than any team in the SEC, yes Auburn had two players suspended last week but it doesn't compare to the trouble UGAs team has had and don't give me that crap that they don't arrest players in Auburn because Eric Smith was almost kicked off the team last year for an arrest it's comical to justify your teams legal trouble by saying that nobody else arrests football players.

As far as Cam goes his performance was more than just a couple nice runs and lame duck passes to wide open receivers it was putting deep passes in players chests going through every singel read and a tiny bit of freakish athleticism sprinkled in there. I'm sorry if you weren't impressed by his performance but he did enough to earn POW honors and I look forward to what he does this season.

Btw holy cow Terrell Pryor makes Chris Johnson look like a scholar hahaha

@^ Athens has some of -the- single worst police in the United States, let alone SEC towns. I'm sorry, but some of the arrests they have made are just laughable. Whether it be a theft by taking charge of an item that was worth maybe $10, or a guy being charged with obstruction for not knowing how to spell his middle name. Are they stupid mistakes? **** yes, but arrest worthy? **** no.

No, I'm not jesting. Auburn has as many players get into trouble as Georgia, it just doesn't show up on the arrest record or in the papers. Auburn and Alabama have been at war for so long, they've perfected the technique of keeping everything on the down low, and the entire local community participates in that effort. How many players get arrested for underage drinking in Auburn Alabama? I can't remember one, but do you think your players drink less than ours? I sincerely doubt it. The difference is in the way the law is enforced. Like I said above, team attrition is a pretty good indicator of how many players are getting into trouble, and Auburn leads the SEC in that category. That's how they end up signing almost 30 players every year, because of cases like Savage, Jemison, Thompson, being quietly kicked off the team last year without media comment regarding the reason.

Eric Smith. Sure he got arrested, because he cold cocked some kid from behind, in plain view of police officers and put him in the hospital. So what was his punishment? He missed the opener against Louisiana Tech last year, but was reinstated for the second game against Miss St. That doesn't sound like "almost got kicked off the team" to me. Then he was academically ineligible for the bowl game. If he was "almost kicked off" before, how many chances does he get? For comparison, Michael Lemon at Georgia did the same exact thing at a party two years ago and he got kicked of the team.

I don't need to justify anything. Our players get into trouble, they get disciplined. But our assortment of underage drinking, drinking while driving, fist fights and suspended drivers licenses is not much different than anyone elses. Athens PD is the difference. If there was a serious problem, it would show up in serious crimes.

We'll see on Newton. He's a great athlete, but he hasn't done anything to say he's a great quarterback yet. Athletic potential is very different from being a good quarterback. I have questions about his accuracy and there are problems with his mechanics. Those will be exposed against good defenses. Like all quarterbacks, he'll improve over time, but having seen what I've seen so far, I'll take Aaron Murray without hesitation.

One quick correction. Savage didn't get kicked off the team last year. He got hurt in the spring.

cam has a lot of potential, but he isn't a great qb yet. congrats auburn fans on cam winning the award. he is a heck of a talent and very tough to bring down. i think the original comment after the millejbs is pretty impt imo. the auburn defense is a big question mark and that really is something I wonder about. your offense is going to be explosive, but you aren't going to be able to out score teams weekly. now i know i may have asked this before and if i did i apologize, but can an auburn fan give me a defensive breakdown of your units or what you see as a problem and if you see it fixable? this game with msu has the possibility of being a great one. i am interested in seeing how both msu and auburn's defenses can handle the offenses in this game.

Actually smith was almost kicked off the team after the arrest he wasn't actually a member of the team and he was allowed to return to the team (attend meetings, practice, etc) five weeks after the incident. As for Savage and Co. they were kicked off the team for classroom issues not legal trouble. As for arrests the difference lies in opportunities for DIPs to occur underage players are not allowed in the bar in Auburn (seen it happen numerous times), outside of Eric Smith the last legal trouble at AU that I can remember was Frankie Six Fingers stealing his car back from the towing company (which was hilarious). As for Richt being "one and done" Montez Robinson had to beat his girlfriend twice and break his probation to get dismissed from the team. And let's not pretend every arrest is a DIP or underage drinking when there's been DUIs assaults and and a hit and run.

Never the less as I said before it was simple trash talk, and the fact cannot be denied that UGA has more players arrested than any team in the SEC.

As for Cam I don't recall calling him great just that his performance was more than just simple runs and lame

duck passes that happened to fall to our WR.

Like I said, Smith missed one inconsequential football game and played for the first SEC contest. The indefinite offseason suspension was perfected by Phil Fulmer long before Chizik came along. Re Savage and company, the rumors on an insider Auburn message board were a lot worse than grades. But Auburn put the locks down and the message boards got quickly cleaned up before the media came snooping around, and the papers just said "three players dismissed from team". It happens all the time at Auburn. At about the same time, Cam Henderson got suspended for an entire season, no questions asked. El Toro Freeman has been in trouble more than once, including last spring, no media coverage. Tray Blackmon had multiple run-ins with the law, some very serious that never made the news.

As for underage drinking, it happens just as much at Auburn as everywhere else, including football players. They just don't get arrested. Auburn recruits the same pool of players, sometimes they recruit players that Georgia couldn't even touch like Robert Dunn or Cam Newton. That's why Auburn has greater attrition than other schools, less selective recruiting and then weed out the bad seeds once they get into school. Public disclosure of problems is the only difference.
