There's so much to say. I have no idea where to start really. I've had a day and a half to process it, and I'm still at a loss as to where to start.
I suggest starting here. Blutarsky suggests that something is missing. You can't look at what he calls the randomness of our "no shows" over the past three years and think there isn't something wrong at the DNA level of the program.
Some will say it's the "Richt lacks a killer instinct" thing that we've been hearing on and off for the past 8 years. I don't buy the idea that because Richt is sincerely a good person / nice that he's somehow flawed. He may be too loyal to some of his assistants and/or too trusting / hands off in his approach to their game plans. That I'd almost certainly agree with. But I don't buy that he's inherently too nice to win a national title.
However, there is something to be said for the old prison concept of walking into the yard on your first day and kicking the shit out of someone to send a message to everyone else. That's essentially what UF did to LSU and UK. They sent Georgia a message.
And you know what? It worked. We played and coached like we were afraid of them. The players talk about swagger. A team full of swagger doesn't walk out onto mid-field of a its two biggest games and take a dump on itself.
Lastly (for now anyway)....here's the thing about Meyer's time outs and the end. He is a vindictive son of a bitch. To quote Chris Dimino on 790theZone today, "Meyer's revenge tank isn't remotely close to being full." We have to get our act together before going back down there because he'll run it up again if he gets the chance.
More later. I'm still trying to decide what all to post about.
(Update: Comments are back on. I turned on comments for posts going forward. I kept them locked for the old stuff from last week. Just please remember that the tone we've tried to set here is one of "Why" and "How" not "So and So sucks" and "fire so and so.")
