    Let me tell you something . . . Rosier wins another one that Kaaya would of lost.

    This FSU front would of destroyed Brad. That kid kept his composure, remained a threat to run all game and came up pure aces when it mattered the most. He earned a lot of respect from me today. Sure he had some bad throws mixed in but that kid kept the chains moving the entire second half.

    And that drop by Berrios as a Freshman seems so long ago. What a player man.

    This is how you regain swag, the turnover chain is amazing, but winning at Tally with recruits all over the country watching that intensity . . . I miss that.

    What a win . . .what a game. Absolutely excellent.

    Another classic although the first half was forgettable.

    The streak is broken now let's keep it going and pound GT :thumbsup

    Best thing that happened in football today. Iowa St punking Mayfield was a close second. Gator football was 786th.

    Not gonna lie, although Mark Richt is far and away the best coach we've had since Butch and his recruiting, I have never really been sold on him as the primary playcaller.

    He brought his nutsack with him yesterday by going for the touchdown at the end instead of playing for the FG. The trust he put in those kids and them succeeding was a beautiful thing to watch.

    Now that the smoke has cleared, I have 2 pain points with this game.

    1) Mark Walton Playing. This one is on Richt. He should have seen that Walton was ineffective (due to injury) but he kept playing him and din't allow Homer any carries until the end.

    CAR YDS AVG TD LONG
    Travis Homer 3 29 9.7 0 14

    Mark Walton 12 25 2.1 0 7

    2) Rosier and his streakiness/inconsistency. There is no way that this team can get down 20 points and wait around for Rosier to find his groove. If the defense ever has a bad first half of football then this team is done.

    I think Mark sits this week.

    Only problem is we are very thin at RB. Homer's shown he can play but Gary and Burns will need to step up.

    I think #2 has a ton to do with #1. We should never have to hope Rosier has to carry us. This team needs to move the chains and run the ball effectively, and we did neither in the first half. I fault Mark Richt for a majority of that but truth be told, it is hard to overanalyze a rivalry game on the road like the one we just saw. Completely agree about playing Walton, he was clearly hampered and Homer has shown where he can be effective.

    Mark Richt wants to throw the rock and I applaud that, but he needs to have a better pulse on the game in the first half. 3rd and short shouldn't be about a 20 yard downfield throw . . . It needs to be how can I get these 3 yards to move the sticks. You can't be on the wrong end of TIme of possession nearly 2 to 1 after a half of football against a talented team like FSU.

    It almost sunk us as that defense was clearly gassed at the end. Gotta do more to play the field position game and keep your offense on the field.

    Probably means freshman D.J.Dallas moves to running back to back up Homer , Gray and Burns. Big loss but in the larger scheme of things it means Walton will be back next year when we'll have Walton , Homer , 5 star Lorenzo Lingard who ran for 300 yards and 4 TD's friday plus 4 star RB Davis from Carol City.
    Next years O will be stacked. Rosier will have a year under his belt with Perry waiting for his turn to take over.

    Get to the ACC championship and play in a major bowl to set up next year's National Championship run.

    Welp it is confirmed, he is done for the year.

    Hopefully not his final game as a Cane.

    So we beat FSU after 7 years and we are not happy?
    In regards to Rossier: he is still learning. It was his 4th or 5th start and showed poise in the 2nd half like I haven't seen from a UM QB in at least a decade.
    While I like Kaya he never had that signifying win over FSU. I prefer a struggle in the 1st half on offense but making the plays in the second half for a win.
    Last year we killed FSU in the first half and beat them into a pulp on O and D just for them to come back and take that win from us.
    Sorry I prefer games like last Saturday.

    In regards to Walton: we do not know what transpired. As far as we know Walton never let on before how serious his injury was. It may have just topped over into something serious last Saturday.
    Unless we know for sure that Walton was seriously injured and Richt pressed him into play I would hold off on that type of accusations. It is sad and will require adjustment but despite that we should be fine at RB. Others may have to and will step up.

    I'm happy about where we are. Rosier has good potential. Clutch genes are important

    Ugh, Redwine is a blow. Kids a solid tackler and you need solid tacklers against Georgia Tech. Luckily the front 7 seems to be healthy, they are the key to getting this win.

    Not loving Donaldson being out either. Georgia Tech's defense is underrated. They are busy on defense, can cause problems if you aren't on your A game.

    Still at home, you gotta have it.

    Got to get off to a good start and make GT come from behind. If they have long clock eating drives that end in TD's it could be a long day. Need a few 3 and outs from the D

    This might be the only game all year where I would want the ball if we win the coin toss.
    Richt has a long history against them and should have the team ready to go.

    With #2 and #8 losing last night, it is time to crack the top 10 with a win.

    And Clemson? I wonder how far they will fall?

    I personally can't see us jumping Clemson. Remember they lost to Pittsburgh last year then won the title. They will remain Top 10. Miami should climb into the top 10 aren't we #11 right now? We will jump WSU immediately

    Can't even think about rankings that much until we secure this win over Georgia Tech today. Always a tricky matchup. Clemson losing should hopefully wake this team up and eliminate any possibilities of a letdown after such an emotional victory over FSU.

    Either way this team has a golden opportunity this year, they gotta take one game at a time and the chips will fall where they need them to.

    I think the goal is the Coastal this season. ACC championship would be icing on the cake. I personally hate ranking because I am pulling for teams by their rankings so that Miami can move up.

    What an awful start on both sides of the ball.

    Defense getting blown up and Rosier back to being Rosier.

    Defense will right the ship. Can take a bit to adjust to this offense.

    But Richt has to sometimes move the chains and don't leave it to Rozier going down field on 3rd and manageable/short.

    Yea it is not a great offense for us to go against. We play aggressive on defense as anybody in the country and option football is about toning that back and keeping your assignments.

    Which is why its important that Richt and the offense moves the chains and we have to score touchdowns until the defense adjusts.

    Those secondary injuries are hurting us right now.

    It's unwatchable garbage. Not just saying that because we're struggling to stop it. Leave that **** in high school.

    This is why I won't even watch GT if they're in a 38-38 OT game. **** their program.

    Oh look, Rosier completes his first pass after missing three one on one receivers deep.....guess we're saving that for 3rd and 5.

    Clean pocket. Wiiiiiiiiide open receiver. WAY OFF.

    I love his toughness and confidence but he's got to improve as a passer quite a bit. Hopefully Perry is ready in 2018.

    Edit: and Richt/Rosier kills another drive.... What the **** is with these 3rd and 5 prayers???? Get the damn first down!

    I mean you need 5 yards lol

    Richt had been doing this all year, he has gotta do better with his playcalling on 3rd and 5 or less.

    It has literally been my only complaint of this team all year and its been like that every game.

    We'll be fine guys. Just keep it close until half time , make a few adjustments on D and see a little good Rosier in the second half.

    Now give Homer the ball and get Jeff Thomas more involved.
