“Yeah it is [amazing],” Malcome said Wednesday as Georgia continued practice for
Monday’s Outback Bowl. “It’s amazing how God works. He pushes you to work through things and sees if you break down. For me, I did break down, but I said, ‘I’m gonna fight it,’ and I came out on top. It’s a good feeling.”
“I know [Keith Marshall]’s coming in, but it’s something I don’t really think about,”
Malcome said. “I just know in spring, summer, I’ll be getting better myself. I can’t really focus on what other people do, as long as I work to get better.”
Then I got to thinking and had an epiphany.......Malzahn isn't jumping ship he is just positioning himself for his dream job. Here is the deal. Penn State can't get anyone to take the HC gig up there for obvious reasons. The PSU deal will shake out one of two ways:
1. They keep the interim guy through next season and hope some heat dies down before making a play for a big name, or
2. They will realize that child rape is not something that just goes away and will decide to just back the money truck up to some coaches house this season.
Either way they are going to have to target someone with the following resume:
- Success as a college HC
- A name big enough to make it look as if PSU is still an elite job
- A name that can justify the enormous salary they are going to have to dish out
- A man with no morals, and
- A slutty, slutty, nasty, money whore who is always open for business.
Now cross check that in your HC data base and tell who is the first name that pops up......
Well played Mr. Malzahn.....well played indeed.
So we finally got this thing right and here are the highlights:
- Non-Conference- Buffalo, Florida Atlantic, Georgia Southern: That is three sure fire wins. No traveling to the other side of the country through multiple time zone changes. No playing a decent team that bases their entire season on the one game against us. Just straight cupcakeage baby!
- Conference- Under Spurrier the Gamecocks have started hot and fizzled out late. Under Richt the Dawgs have started ultra-slow and finished strong. The bottom line is Georgia is a bigger state, school, alumni base- an original SEC member, a wealthier, and more nationally recognized brand than South Carolina. So we finally start to throw our weight around a little in the Birmingham office ala Alabama and get some things that we want.
Well played by Glorious Leader! We hire a guy with Athens roots who learned how to schedule down in the swamp. Could it be that we will finally stop shooting ourselves in the foot? Not quite cause we still ain't over signing.

There have been some major changes in the riding style of the Ol'Rider and that has been taking up a lot of my time. All the changes have begun to settle and The Rider will be back in the saddle on the Reginald pretty soon here. In the mean time I feel as if I must vent to the Cold Blooded Nation about some new little bit of hate that is currently flowing from the river of blood that runs beneath my throne of skulls.
I recently spent a week in Florida. (**pause to vomit**)
I took the Riderettes down to this place:
1. Europeans- Why are you at Disney World? It is an amusement park that is a replica of a European Castle so just stay in Europe (why are you at Epcot? All it is is a replica of Europe). Plus, if we are so non-sophisticated then why would you come to America?
2. Arabs- Why are you at Disney? Disney is the antithesis of all that your religion hates. Plus, if you ain't nuts to butts in line they think that is an invite to cut in line. Then they act like they don't speak English and you have to say "Back of the line Osama or I'll send you to Allah myself!"
3. Old People without Children riding Hover Rounds- Why are you at Disney? Here is a rule I just invented...if you can't walk you don't get to go to Disney-also if you have no children you can't go to Disney . The icing on the cake was watching one old fart at our resort waiting on the bus. He got up and walked around with no trouble. Then a man with a child that was actually disabled and in need of a wheel chair came up. When the bus arrived the old man tried to get on first with his Hover Round. The bus driver told him no--that the kid was priority. The old man got all pissy and argued that he was there first but the bus driver basically told him to shut his fat face. I naturally began to proclaim in a loud voice that if my child was in wheel chair and some old fart raised up on him at Disney said old fart would be bludgeoned to death. For some reason he wouldn't look over at my side of the bus stop after that.
Here are three things that Florida has:
1. Gator's Football
2. Disney World
3. Old People
Here are three things leading to the downfall of the American Civilization:
1. Old People
3. Florida Gator Football
Wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell acknowledged there has been some kind of preliminary discussion about him possibly playing some cornerback next season.
However, offense would still be his primary role.
“If I think that it’ll help us win and he can function and do that, that’d be fine,” Richt said. “We have a few guys that play both ways but we try to have them focus on one position. If they have enough of a comfort level knowing what to do, we can begin to share a little bit. I wouldn’t be against it.”

“I’ve been kind of putting my list together,” Richt said. “Certainly we’ve got to get some better answers in our special teams. It doesn’t necessarily mean changing any coaches on what they do or all that kind of thing, but I’m going to make that a point of emphasis for myself and for our staff and give them carte blanche to take trips or we may be bringing people in to really solidify what we’re doing and be certain that we’re doing the right things schematically and technically.”

The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder showed a mixture of speed and power that impressed his coaches and teammates.
That combination is also grabbing the attention of the nation as Gurley has accrued 13 total offers, including Clemson and South Carolina. He has stated that the Tigers are in his top four along with Georgia, North Carolina and N.C. State and that a decision will be made on Jan. 3.
Gurley helped lead his team to its third straight 2A state championship rushing
for 242 yards and four touchdowns in a 39-36 win against Lincolnton.

On the brink of oblivion in football circles, Mustain says he wouldn't
change a thing.
Mustain applied to Marine Officer Candidates School last summer. Now, he is
working at a friend's car dealership in Bentonville, Ark., easing into life after football.
Mustain signed Sept. 30 with the Georgia Force of the AFL, putting the Marine Corps on hold. The season starts in March, and Mustain will be ready for his last chance to resurrect his football career.
"In the end, I wouldn't change anything," Mustain said.
