UGA vs UF

law_dawg35law_dawg35 Posts: 458 ✭✭✭ Junior

I watch Georgia games during the offseason. It helps ease the pain hahah...Im currently watching Georgia/Florida 2018.

Yall as much as i hate UF this is the game I can see us losing next year if were not careful. Florida played us tough last year, if they had a decent QB it may have been a different game. This is the game that scares me the most.

    No worries about Fla. They should be worried about us.we are better and this is one game we'll never have to worry about UGA being ready.win this one and we wilp be in their heads and Mullen on the hot seat

    Franks will more than likely be their QB again so I'm not worried. E. Jones didn't really impress me either. I think FU still has a ways to go.

    Eric-did you say that with a straight face? Georgia will have the better talent but has lost to Florida several times in the last 20 years when Georgia was said to be the more talented team.

    Law Dog is correct in that the game was much closer than the score indicates.

    Agreed, I've rewatched a couple of times. They could have gained a ton of momentum if they hadn't overthrown the fleaflicka.

    Yes, the game really was closer than the score indicated, and an additional yes in that the flea flicker success would have been HUGE. We were extremely lucky on that play.

    And not to contradict my previous post, but an upset this year would be an obvious step back into the direction of the past. Which is why so much more than just division competition rides on each of those games.

    You can throw stats and numbers out the window when it comes to this one. It’s like a box of chocolates. Should be a close game but Dawgs will keep the streak going.

    UF did play UGA close last year.

    But remember UF loses 4 out of 5 starters from their OL (3 SR's and potential first round pick Jawaan Taylor), their starting RB (Scarlett), and their starting TE (Lewis). They return QB's and WR's... but let's be honest... those weren't strengths of the UF offense.

    While their defense only loses 4 and should be solid... I can't remember the last time a team lost 4 out of 5 on the OL and was as good or better the next year.

    Jachai Polite was one of their loses on defense and will be a first rounder. He was the one that stopped half of those **** goal line calls in the game. They left him unblocked twice and both times he was able to get to the running back before the running back got to the line.

    Be patient, that time is coming

    Our 2012 squad had Jarvis Jones, Shawn Williams, Aaron Murray, Malcolm Mitchell, pre injury Keith Marshall, Bacarri Rambo, William Witherspoon, Todd Gurley, Arthur Lynch and I could go on quite a bit more but Fla was more talented? Ill trust your research but that is a suprise to me.

    Did we win the replay?

    Yes sirrrr

    Everything @JoelSidneyKelly said makes me feel confident in the 2019 game.

    Also Florida running a ton of smack will just fire our guys up more.

    plus this guy <----------- did NOT sign his letter of intent

    Talent is certainly part of it, but coaching is a huge part of it as well. I don't see Mullen getting over CKS with any measure of consistency. If both are the HC 10 years from now, the Dawgs will be 8-2 at the very least. Honestly Pruitt's ability to recruit so long as Fat Farmer doesn't meddle with him is more concerning to me.

  • PharmDawg2054PharmDawg2054 Posts: 1,815 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Kirby will be to Florida and Dan Mullen was Spurrier was to us.

  • MeR3htidMeR3htid Posts: 1,682 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Wouldn't b so sure about that. This is gonna b AT MINIMUM a 10 year war between Smarts Dawgs and Mullens Gators with Smart probably winning 6 or 7 out of the 10 competitive, emotionally charged games. The Gators r our most bitter rivals for a reason and Georgia best not underestimate this Coach or this program.

  • RPMdawgRPMdawg Posts: 1,332 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Stop with the closer than it seemed bs. I'll say it again, a 1 point win is an A$$ WHIPPIN!

    2012 Florida had (literally) forty players on their roster that signed with an NFL team. Eighteen Juniors on that team went on to the NFL.

    Aside from Spurrier and Meyer Florida hasn't really amounted to much. Dan Mullen is not going to bring Florida back to relevance with his top 15 recruiting classes.

    Very much enjoy your posts sir, and 99% of the time I agree with what you post, but I think Mullen is a great coach – don’t care for him much, but he has done a lot with “less” in years past. Think back to last year pre-season… I don’t think anyone would have bought stock that UF would finish top 10 in the final polls. I wouldn’t underestimate his (and his staff’s) ability to field a pretty solid team this year.

    Old wives tale.
    I think fans forget how dominant Florida was in recruiting during Richt's tenure.Georgia's best class (2006) would have been Florida's sixth best. Between 2002 and 2016 Georgia only had one recruiting class at the 290 mark (247); Florida had six, including the highest rated class in NCAA history (2010).
    About a year and a half ago I researched this claim extensively. I compared rosters for fourteen years (2004-2017). In short, Georgia had the more talented roster four times (2006, 2015, 2016, 2017) and was upset three of those times, but Georgia upset a more talented Florida five times in that time frame.
    It is also worth noting that when Georgia had a talent advantage it was slim; Florida often had a FAR superior roster... until 2017. At that point the talent gap was wider than ever between the two teams and it will be even bigger in 2019.

    It was the Goff and Donnan years. Goff out recruited everybody. The thing about Georgia always having better players came from Spurrier because we finished with higher ranked recruiting classes the first 4 years of Goff and after besting us Spurrier would bring it up. Then Donnan also killed it. It’s not a wives’ tale. You just havent gone back far enough.

    Whistling through the graveyard me thinks. You keep forgetting that even with all that talent Kirby is your head coach.

  • kelly_bkelly_b Posts: 1,194 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Read here all the clichés about rivalry games. And take no game for granted. Yeah, we have tons more talent but should not overlook UF at all. Even w/ LSU not even being a true rival, that game proved that you can lose on any given blah blah blah. @law_dawg35 is right. UGA better go into it w/ their heads on straight.

  • DCochranDCochran Posts: 170 ✭✭✭ Junior

    The problem with the Gaytors is they lose almost all of their OL, and we not only return most of ours, but even get some back their injured. Emory is struggling, I've heard he's fighting just to compete with walk-ons so he's no miracle cure. Franks is ok, but not Fromm.
    And don't let that Michigan game fool you, Michigan was missing more starters for that game than we were against Texas. So, that win isn't as great as they gator fanbase like to make it out to be. I see the Gators taking a step back this season. They're recruiting talent, but not like us.

    Agreed! So far we have 13 top 200 recruits 2019, they have 6. Am waiting for the 247 composite Talent numbers to come out which I hope is end of next week.

    Nah I think if Florida is going to make a step back towards Meyer like, we're likely to see it very quickly, as with how things roll with most coaching changes for schools, if there's no 2nd year bump, that's usually not good news.

    I've said I doubt it on Mullen taking them back to those times, but I can't lie, on occasion I've had doubt creep in on that of late. As of now my guess for next year would actually lean towards them having a slight bump, but I'm thinking that it ends up like 2012, maybe not as bad as the game we saw that year...they go 11-1 and lose by 10 to Georgia as their only regular season loss, then they suffer a Louisville-esque loss in a bowl. Going forward from there, since Mullen was one of Florida's guys with Meyer, most of their fans will still hold a great deal of hope, but it'll officially be dashed in 2020.

    They may play us tough, but they haven't recruited well enough the past few years to out-talent us as they used to do. The biggest thing CKS has brought to this rivalry, IMO, is that we no longer fear Florida. We don't come into this game anymore just hoping we can keep from being embarrassed and maybe eke out a win every now and then. We come in there now expecting to win, which is what we used to do during the time Dooley was coaching.
