If I were the Sugar Bowl folks I’d tell the SEC I’m not taking Georgia under these circumstances again. Why should they when half the team isn’t playing and as a result the fans aren’t showing up? Take somebody who actually wants to be there instead. 

It doesn’t work like that.

Didn’t say they get sole veto power. Just that at some point these folks are going to start balking at this arrangement. They don’t have a choice. Falling hotel revenues, a lesser TV product. At some point the numbers just don’t add up.

it's all about ratings and selling commercials and UGA is one of the best tv ratings out there.

If you’ve got some actual hard numbers showing that UGA’s a bigger TV draw year in and year out than Florida or Alabama, who could also be in this game, please post them.

You got hard numbers saying Bama and UF want to be there more than UGA?

Sure. I think the fact you can walk into the Sugar Bowl for $14.00 is a pretty good indicator of program excitement. There are going to be a lot of empty seats in that stadium. There’ll be pictures of the empty seats all over the Internet. The folks from the Sugar Bowl committee will just be thrilled.

Apples and Oranges comparison... but look at the top 10 rated college games this year and tell me UGA doesn’t bring TV ratings

The fact that you don’t like it doesn’t make a direct comparison of ticket prices “apples vs. oranges.”

I’ll make you a bet. If the Sugar Bowl has a higher television rating than the Citrus and Orange, I won’t post on this board for a month. If Florida or Alabama outdraw us you do the same. Deal?

Matchups matter, Citrus contains 2 blue bloods of College Football history so yes that will gain ratings in itself but Florida/Virginia the ticket prices are due to Florida’s fan base being located within an hour or 2 from the game location, it would be no different if UGA played in the Peach Bowl. So I will take the bet on the Orange bowl but not on the Citrus because the matchups are similar and I believe the Sugar Bowl will have significant higher rating than the Orange Bowl. Deal?

And you think UGA is the only team that will have players sit out ,due to the draft, or have kids miss the game, due to academics and failed drug tests?

You and I both know that’s the proposition you want to go with because you know that Alabama in the Citrus is a bigger draw. I don’t think I need to bet anymore because you just proved my point.

But why not? It’ll be fun. You’re on.

It's the new reality with the playoffs, I'm not going to blame a kid that's got a shot at the NFL foregoing a meaningless Carcare Geico Tostidos Bowl, UGA has a lot of players with NFL potential. Don't blame fans not wanting to attend what is turning into exhibition games mostly either. Whats the answer? expanded playoffs? maybe but need to be careful with that too as it cheapens the regular season, and the only thing feasible would be expanding to 8, unless they started the playoffs earlier. So 

UGA's opponent doesn't help attendance I'd bet just like the Hawaii game

Fromm on his future, mechanics, and more

Anthony Dasher • UGASports

NEW ORLEANS – Thoughts that Jake Fromm might reveal a decision about his future with the Bulldogs was quickly brushed aside by the quarterback during Sunday morning's press conference to preview Wednesday's Sugar Bowl against Baylor.

“That’s something I haven’t really thought about,” Fromm said. “For me, it’s been how can we get better in these practices before Christmas, go home for Christmas and enjoy time with the family, get to be a little kid for a little bit then come back here and play in an awesome bowl game.”

Fromm did concede that he has received his grade from the NFL Draft board, but would wait until after the bowl to discuss it with his parents before making a final decision.

Queries about Fromm’s future weren’t the only ones asked of the Georgia junior.

His current level of play was also a huge focal point, including questions on whether or not some mechanical issues led to some of his late-season issues after completing less than 50 percent of his passes in each of the Bulldogs’ last five games.

“For us, we’ve been working throughout these last two weeks, a lot on feet, how can we get quicker, how can we develop a better base, how can we get better feet through progressions three and four,” he said. “We’re really working on that.”

He didn’t deny it’s been an issue.

“It’s tough. Throughout the season you work less on fundamentals and more on scheme. That’s part of the battle of what you put the time into,” Fromm said. “For us, I know for me, I got away from the fundamentals and worked a little too much on scheme and it hurt my progress with my feet later throughout the year.

Which begs the question, did Fromm regress as a quarterback compared to his first two seasons?

Statistically, there’s certainly been a change.

Fromm’s efficiency rating of 138.68 is significantly lower than the 171.21 while his completion percentage of 60.3 is behind the 67.3 he posted as a sophomore in 2018.

But as far as any regression, offensive coordinator James Coley doesn’t agree.

When asked specifically if Fromm’s stats were a sign of regression by his quarterback, he offered a different explanation.

“Jake’s performance I would say, with Lawrence Cager in the game, was something like 71 percent completion for the season. Lawrence Cager is not in the game it’s a lot lower. Has he regressed or have his stats regressed? I’d say his stats regressed,” Coley said. “I’m around Jake every day. I coach Jake, I was his quarterback coach last year. If anything, Jake is sharper because of the multiples he’s had to do deal with, with new guys in the lineup.”

Coley offered examples of why he believes that’s the case.

“It looks like you’re not accurate when guys are running a bender across the middle of the field and he keeps it vertical, you think he’s bending and the ball ends up being short and you end up saying, ‘Man, this guy threw a terrible ball,’ or the guy is running a 10-yard stop route and he runs it at 12, and it’s a low throw,” Coley said. “That’s not all the time, but it happens when you get injuries, it happens when you’ve got guys who haven’t played in a while, and or, it’s their first chance, they’re a little nervous and take their routes a little deeper than they should be and ends up looking like (Fromm) is not playing as good as he was a year ago.”

Fromm did let it be known that he’s ready to run, something he’s not been asked to do very much in Georgia’s offensive scheme.

“That’s where the game is going and with my feet, I’m ready to go,” Fromm said. “Let’s go play football and be a football player.”

Fromm did lay one rumor to rest, that his shoulder has been a problem.

“I’ve been healthy,” said Fromm, who admitted the season has at times been tough.

“It’s a football season. Football seasons are always tough,” he said. “But I love football, I love this team, I love this university. I couldn’t ask for a better spot.”

Coley agreed.

“When you’ve got to deal with the guys who are playing around you, you’ve almost got to adjust your game to them. So, I think Jake is still the same Jake. I think he’s done a great job with his attitude and the way he comes to work every day,” Coley said. “He’s not fazed by stats; he’s not fazed by production in a game where he knows he did all he could do to give us a shot. But coaching him for two years now, I’m proud of the kid. Watching him in practice just this week and last week, man, you talk about someone who comes in with a great spirit to compete and affect others, it’s unbelievable.”

I'm sorry, but making sure the QB sticks to his fundamentals thru the season is one of the priority jobs of the QB coach ( Coley ). That Jake admits the obvious about his mechanics is a credit to him I guess, but it's also a huge indictment that both he and Coley let it go unaddressed during the season when it was painfully obvious it was happening for many weeks.

In the last decade the state of Georgia has produced 6 QB's that have played in the college playoffs or the BCS National Championship Game.  Only one of them has represented UGA.  

Of the 6 QBs, 3 have won the Championship, none of which represented UGA. 

We have got to get better at evaluating QB talent.  Lord knows we can identify running backs, but defenses have evolved now and UGA needs to start spreading the ball around.  The days of ground and pound and let the defense win are getting awfully tiresome.

Granted it was against a Big 12 team, but Burrows had 53% as many TDs in the first half of a playoff game as Fromm had the entire season against SEC opponents. (7 vs 13)

I'm not a huge LSU fan, but will pull for them as a fan of the SEC.  But dang, if they aren't exciting to watch.  Imagine that offense with our Defense!!!  2020 Kirby has to change up the offense.  It's one thing to recruit a bunch of WRs, but if he refuses to mix it up, it will be the same old **** show!  

Woulda Coulda Shoulda

Which of those qb’s did UGA not recruit?  How many attended UGA?  How many were in the same class?

So Chubb should’ve been a slam dunk for top rusher but the stupid Browns didn’t let him carry it in the fourth

Henry takes it though because they fed him all game and in the fourth just so he would get it. 
 

stupid browns cost Chubb the title plus a 1500 season

 

13 carries vs 32. 
 

I say it again. The browns are stupid

 

Chubb get out of there as soon as you can. Don’t do what AJ did. 
 

 

UPDATE

at least they fired Kitchens tonight.
