Good. 7 huh? We'll see.***

Yeah. It's great to be the underdog

and not the dirty dog.


Open. It will be less. My take. Easy money...***

know different. Other than a few big gains and some Murray heroics late, they couldn't move the ball with any consistency. Even some of the GA fans are worried about their OLs with several new guys coming in. I wish they had the same ones from last year. We may not score as much, but they will score much less....

Yes, but remember, Gurley was hurt and only rushed 11 times, compared to 30 plus against SC and LSU. He's a freaking animal and would have been tough to stop.


Who hurt him?***

He injured his hamstring running 75 yards for a TD


Posted: Apr 28, 2014 3:12 PM
 

none of our players touched him.


None of their players touched Sammy on the next TD play...


Posted: Apr 28, 2014 7:38 PM
 

except for the one he railroaded. Gurley and Marshall will get some yards but not consistently.

Gurley will be pushing for the Heisman this year and he just may be the favorite to win it. Keeping him under 100 yards will be an accomplishment for any team this season.

Georgia was favored by 2 or 3 last year and Ohio St. was a 3 point favorite on a neutral field. If Dabo can win as a 7 point dog in Sanford Stadium it will be the biggest win of his career IMO.

We put his azzz out of the game.

Gurley rushed for 160 yds last year.

I don't see him rushing for more this year. He may be more effective, but not as productive.

I ordered my tickets last week.
IT'S GETTING CLOSER!

545 total yards and no consistency.....seriously? Last year you also had a 5th yr QB and a 1st rounder at WR. You lost 95% of your offensive production. Morris will barely have enough olinemen for that 1st game in addition to the inexperience at the skills. Oh, and we hired Fsu's DC too.

Well I reckon we'll see soon, won't we. You are trying way too hard to convince people who are just frankly not impressed with your team.


You lost 3 OLs as well. The difference will be our D (that's


Posted: Apr 28, 2014 7:41 PM
 

a capital D for depth). It will be decided on the lines and that's why Clemson wins, probably by double digits...


Re: You lost 3 OLs as well. The difference will be our D (that's


Posted: Apr 29, 2014 1:25 PM
 

I just don't see it. A double digit win on the road? Stoudt hasn't even faced a 1st team defense in his college career. Your own starting oline will be suspect as well. Morris must replace his #1 qb, #1 rb, #1 and #2 wrs, a starting OT and OG and another starting guard (Beasley)is suspend along with another projected starter Anthony. Seriously, why all the confidence?


Stoudt has been in this offense for quite some time


Posted: Apr 30, 2014 11:51 AM
 

He is a senior after all. As far as O line, Thomas and Shatley will be missed but we HAVE recruited for those lines and have highly regarded players that have yet to contribute...guys like Spencer Region who is a monster. Guys like Kalon Davis, Joe Gore and freshman Tyrone Crowder will have to potentially step up. Battle will continue to improve...I think he had the most upside.

At RB, I remember you guys dogging us about Hot Rod saying he's no Andre Ellington yada yada yada...now we have a STABLE of RBs that are very talented. RB is the absolute LEAST of my worries.

We've got a lot of talent at WR...I wouldn't say any are quite up to par with Sammy, but how often are we gonna see that? Maybe never! We've definitely recruited guys that can play similar roles to our WR last year though...Williams will be our tall WR that can be a downfield threat like Bryant. We've got plenty of speedsters at WR...Priester, Scott, Humphries, Peake (more highly rated than Sammy coming in i think)...

You dawg fans see Boyd and Watkins gone and you think we'll have no offense...the thing is, we'll have a DIFFERENT looking offense with the stable of RBs we have. All we have to hope for is consistency out of our O line and we'll have one solid team on both sides of the ball.

I never said clemson didn't have talent. But what you do have is limited experience at a lot of offensive positions. I just don't think it'll all come together in the 1st game of the season......especially on the road.


It may not, but it doesn't hurt to have 1) talent


Posted: Apr 30, 2014 3:35 PM
 

2) one of the greatest offensive minds in college football.

I hope yall keep Richt...cuz if not, Morris may just leave for that opportunity...

Can pretty much guarantee this drops to 4 1/2 or 5 at least by game week.


Re: FB Update: Vegas Odds on Clemson-Georgia


Posted: Apr 28, 2014 10:50 AM
 

I'm hoping that it goes up by another 7 points.


Re: FB Update: Vegas Odds on Clemson-Georgia

I absolutely LOVE it when we are the underdog. Nothing better than your team being told they can't win b/c the odds makers say they won't win. And that they won't win by a certain amount of points... Thank you Vegas, you just dialed up a smack down on the UGA puppies!!!

We love the underdog role gives our boys a certain fire


Looks like its time to place a big bet.***

its all about how to keep the money flowing

I would love to see the revenue management models that Vegas comes up with each week/month/year/game. People still get all bent out of shape about betting lines. It's all about money flow so the oddsmakers make their money.

I bet come game time it is down to 3 or less.


I just hate the .5 betting lines....screwed me out of some

Well 3 is only the home field points when two teams come close to being evenly matched up.


Dunno about that. They have to at least start with a

projection. If you don't think Vegas has advanced metrics at their disposal you are crazy. Obviously the first game of a CFB season is tough to model due to the crazy player turnover every year, but I'm sure they have a clue.

Once they get a score projection they adjust it based on anticipated betting. Schools Ohio State and ND with huge fan bases probably get some extra pts on a consistent basis because fans tend to be homers and bet on their own team, often foolishly. UGA probably gets more of those bets than Clemson so that might be a factor, but likely not a large one.

Also I'm not convinced that Vegas uses 3pts as home field advantage for CFB. I think they have much more advanced data that gives certain home fields more points than others. Sanford stadium is likely worth more than 3 pts, just as i feel DV is worth more as well.

Neutral field i bet Vegas still thinks UGA is 2-3 points better than us.


Exactly! Agree 100% on the spreads in certain stadiums.


Posted: Apr 28, 2014 7:50 PM
 

However (and I know I look through orange colored glasses), I think we'd beat them wherever the game is played. Getting thUGA the 1st game of the year is always a plus. Considering they usually have at least 4-6 starters suspended, I like our odds. Our D will be good (hopefully great), and I don't see Cole giving any games away with turnovers. With a great D, that's all a QB has to do. See AJ McCarron, who I believe Cole has the ability to be better than.

I bet it'll be closer come August

I think this game is a pick'em just like last year. Advantage to the home team, but on a neutral field too close to call.


And, bet we don't play that terrible prevent D when ahead **

I like us to win the game outright. The spread makes it that much better.
