Junkyard Mail: Are some cupcakes more palatable than others for Dawgs fans? 

By Bill King

This is pretty much the reaction to Georgia's latest scheduling move. (Brant Sanderlin / AJC)

This is pretty much the reaction to Georgia’s latest scheduling move. (Brant Sanderlin / AJC)

In case you missed it, the news sneaked out Friday that Georgia has added Nicholls State, another obscure FCS program from Louisiana, to the Dogs’ home schedule for 2016 on a date to be determined.

The Athens Banner-Herald reported that the Colonels, who lost to Oregon 66-3 last season, play Arkansas this year, and will be playing UGA for the first time ever, will receive $525,000 for the game in Athens, according to a memorandum of understanding signed this month by the athletic directors at both schools obtained via an open records request.

Cue eyes rolling across the Bulldog Nation.

OK, given that some cupcakes are a necessity, at least until one too many on the schedule keeps someone out of the College Football Playoff, I’ve heard numerous UGA fans wondering why the schedulers at Butts-Mehre don’t at least try to find cupcakes that would be of some interest to fans being asked to pay for a game they’d just as soon not attend.

Along those lines, Ryan Scates, a former student member of the UGA athletic board, offered suggestions in his latest Poor Man’s Game Notes email newsletter on cupcakes that would be more appealing to fans.

His suggestions:

Yale, since UGA was founded by Yale grads and Yale, then a national power, played in the first game at Sanford Stadium (losing 15-0).

mercer bearsMercer (UGA’s first football game was a 50-0 win over the Bears at Herty Field).

Sewanee (a charter member of SEC).

Tulane (also a charter member of SEC).

Kennesaw State (which plays its inaugural season in 2015).

Furman (an FCS school, as Scates put it, “for Georgians too proud to go to Auburn”).

SMU (Scates suggests a “1980s day at Sanford”).

(If you’d like to check out Scates’ Poor Man’s Game Notes, contact him at ryan.a.scates@gmail.com.)

Ryan has come up with an interesting list, though there are a few problems with it. While I’d love to see FCS member Yale come back to Athens, say, in 2019 to mark the 90th anniversary of Sanford Stadium, the original Bulldogs and other Ivy League teams generally don’t play FBS teams, though occasional exceptions are made (Yale and Army are playing this year to mark the 100th anniversary of football in the Yale Bowl).

But there’s such a stark disparity between the nonscholarship Yale program and Georgia’s that I’d be surprised if they agreed to make the trip. Also, games against nonscholarship programs don’t count toward bowl eligibility (though hopefully that wouldn’t be an issue at UGA any time soon).

As for Sewanee, they play Division III football, and Division 1 programs don’t play Division III programs. Seriously, it would be like playing a high school team.

Ryan’s other choices (even Furman) all would be of more interest to UGA fans than the likes of Nicholls State, Charleston Southern or next year’s Southern University and A&M College, but SMU and Tulane probably wouldn’t agree to anything less than home-and-home deals.

However, playing up-and-coming in-state programs like Mercer, Kennesaw State and even Georgia State would at least provide a modicum of local interest.

In fact, I think a game in Athens against Mercer, Georgia’s opponent in its very first football game in 1892, would be a great idea for the 2017 season opener to mark the 125th anniversary of Georgia football. Or, if the Dogs traveling to Notre Dame that season and playing one less home game complicates things, then open with Mercer in 2022 for the 130th anniversary. (Georgia Tech’s first football game in school history also came against Mercer in 1892, a game the Bears won 12-6. Mercer is set to play Tech in 2016.)

Who else would you rather see Between the Hedges if Georgia must play cupcake games?

JUNKYARD MAIL

Now, let’s get to some of this week’s mail …

David T. Crisp writes: I have been following your Blawg for several years and really enjoy your candid and tactful comments on our beloved Dawgs. Do you think with the questionable receiving corps this year that we may see more of Faton Bauta, given his dual threat capability?

David, I don’t think the receiving corps is really all that questionable, even with Malcolm Mitchell and Justin Scott-Wesley out for at least the first game. Chris Conley and Michael Bennett are more than capable as the starters, and the players battling for the third spot (Reggie Davis, Kenneth Towns, Blake Tibbs and Jonathon Rumph) are talented and just need to show some consistency. Also possibly in the mix are freshman return specialist Isaiah McKenzie and walk-on Michael Erdman. (The Macon Telegraph reported that Brendan Langley, who switched over to receiver from cornerback, apparently is headed for a redshirt season.) So, to get to the heart of your question, no, I don’t think the receiving corps will be a factor in how much Faton Batau plays. As long as he’s healthy, Hutson Mason will be the Dogs’ quarterback.

University of Georgia President Jere Morehead. (UGA)

University of Georgia President Jere Morehead. (UGA)

Rick Martin writes: Bill, Do you think the change in presidents will help or hurt UGA athletics? Or will things just remain about the same?

Rick, I think it’s way too early in Jere Morehead’s administration to know just how involved he’ll get in setting athletic policy, but I have a hard time seeing him trying to bigfoot Greg McGarity when it comes time to hire new coaches the way Michael Adams did when Dooley was still the athletic director.

SCDAWG writes: Bill: Upon the launch of the SEC network, I enjoyed watching a few replays of some of UGA’s greatest games. But one thing struck me and it has bothered me for years, and that is our consistent lack of crowd noise. Sanford has at times displayed what it can be in terms of atmosphere (i.e. Last year’s LSU game). But all too often have I watched Coach Richt, desperately waving his clipboard, begging people to stand up and make some noise. I am fed up with the “wine and cheese” crowd between the 30s that sit on their hands and spend the entire game socializing. If you don’t come to the game to make noise and be “in” the game, then give your ticket to someone that will and stay at your tailgate. Please use your platform to implore people to stand up and make some noise!

I agree completely. As I wrote last year after the South Carolina game (another game when the Sanford crowd rose to the occasion), this whole idea of the crowd becoming the “12th man” by making it more difficult for the visitor has been a way of life for years at places like LSU’s Death Valley and Texas A&M’s Kyle Field. But too often in recent years, the crowds at Sanford earned a reputation more for a late-arriving, early-leaving student section that left large gaps of seats unfilled and quieter nonstudent fans who tended to sit on their hands during long stretches of the game.

Frankly, though, I don’t see entrenched ticketholders giving up their seats, so the question is how to make playing in Sanford a more intimidating experience. I have my doubts that blasting loud rock and hip-hop music between plays is the answer. Perhaps more effective would be Mark Richt, who was pleading with fans before last year’s South Carolina game to show up early and get loud, more directly addressing the problem with some blunt talk about crowd support.

Beach Dawg writes: Bill, At some point, would you provide us an update on how Aaron and the other UGA rookies in NFL camps are doing? As always, I appreciate your insight and candor on all things Dawg!

Aaron Murray threw a touchdown on his first pass for the Chiefs. (Associated Press)

Aaron Murray threw a touchdown on his first pass for the Chiefs. (Associated Press)

Thanks, Beach. I don’t really follow the NFL summer camps all that carefully, though I couldn’t miss the fact that Kansas City Chiefs rookie quarterback Aaron Murray threw a 43-yard touchdown pass as his first completion in an NFL game. Of course, he also threw a pick-6 later in the game, which the Chiefs lost, which is pretty normal for a rookie in the pros. Anyway, I asked the AJC’s D. Orlando Ledbetter, who covers and blogs about the Falcons, for an update on the five Bulldogs NFL rookies, and here’s what he reports:

Artie Lynch (the 155th pick overall) received a $185,000 signing bonus from the Miami Dolphins but has been hurt most of training camp with an undisclosed injury. He appears headed for the practice squad.

Headed into the third exhibition game, Murray (163rd overall) has completed 5 of 10 passes (50 percent) for 81 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He has a quarterback rating of 71.3. He is playing behind Alex Smith and Chase Daniels.

And of the undrafted players signed by NFL teams:

Offensive guard Chris Burnette, signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is considered a longshot to make the team; defensive tackle Garrison Smith (Miami Dolphins) played several snaps during the third quarter of their recent game against Atlanta and dropped Falcons rookie running back Devonta Freeman for a four-yard loss; and wide receiver Rantavious Wooten (Miami Dolphins) doesn’t have any stats from the first two games.

On Facebook, Scott Spivey responds to my comments about waiting to celebrate Trenton Thompson’s commitment to UGA until he signs and expressing skepticism that Rico McGraw really flipped his commitment from Georgia to Bama because of facilities. Scott writes: Rico McGraw switched his commitment because his mom wants him to go to Alabama. Rico loves UGA, but he has gotten a lot of pressure from his family to go to Bama. Rico’s recruitment is far from over, though. In regards to Trenton, you can be excited about his commitment to UGA because he has been a Dawg for a long time. Bobo did a heck of a job recruiting him. Watch his commitment ceremony if you get a chance, he honored is grandparents by committing on their anniversary (they were huge Dawg fans).

Scott, I’m not really questioning Thompson’s love of the Dawgs. I just don’t get too wrapped up in verbal commitments. A lot can happen before signing day.

Jim Sandifer writes: Bill, Any word on Malcolm Mitchell receiving a medical redshirt for 2013?

Although he’s not expected to play before the South Carolina game, if that early, as far as I can tell there’s no consideration being given to a medical redshirt for the celebrated Dogs receiver.

Someone who uses the tag “Bulldogs” writes: What is the latest on highly regarded recruit Tramel Terry? I have not heard or read any mention of him all summer.

Right now, he basically seems lost in the defensive depth chart, such as it is. At a press conference earlier this month Richt was asked about Terry, who redshirted last year as he recovered from an ACL injury and then was moved to defense, and said the player is coming along and getting better but “you’ve got to understand that it doesn’t happen overnight, and I think he’s beginning to move a lot better than he did a year ago coming off that ACL. Usually it’s a year after the ACL when you really get a lot of confidence. I remember when we had Boss Bailey. I didn’t know what he was the year before, but he was practicing and just doing OK because he had the ACL. Then in my second year here, which was his senior year, he was very, very confident.”

UGA gymnastics great Courtney Kupets. (UGA)

UGA gymnastics great Courtney Kupets. (UGA)

Finally, let’s give a few loud woofs for former UGA gymnastics star Courtney Kupets, who was among six individuals inducted into the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame Friday. As a senior in 2009, she led Georgia to its fifth straight NCAA championship, and she won the all-around, bars, beam and floor individual competitions. She became the first gymnast to win a national title in all four events. She also set the NCAA record with nine individual championships and was named 2009 SEC Athlete of the Year.

Congratulations, Courtney!

Re::Cupcake Games----- We don't need another cupcake game on our schedule. Now if we want to start rotating our last game of the season among some of these other mentioned teams just for some variety,  I am fine with that.

Get The Picture

The Dawgs play 9 BCS oppents every year and regularly add another ie Clemson and Notre Dame. That is year in and year out equal to anyone in the conference strength of schedule wise. I agree with flat tire rotate with the other state schools and keep the money in the state for the so called cup cakes. Sanford is plent loud in the games that matter. No need to add more seats as 92,000 will become harder to sell out as over exposure on TV only gets worse.

I watched some of the 2013 game tape from the Clemson, SC, LSU, Auburn and Tech games over the last two weeks...and am now more optimistic for our 2014 season than before. We have a lot of our players coming back. Yes, the secondary is new and young....but wasn't that the case for our entire defense this time last year? Aaron Murray and his ability to move the team quickly down the field will be missed, and frankly irreplaceable this year. But I ask...with Coach Pruitt now in charge of the defense and so many players returning...are we going to be in the position to where Mason has to go out on the field every 5 minutes to balance the score? 2014 is now here, and 2013 will be behind us in in a few days. I am thinking 10-2, if not better...and starting out either 4-0 or 3-1. We'll beat Clemson...and be competitive and hopefully pull it out against SC. I am more concerned with a let down against Ark or Ky. Beating both Fla & Auburn will be tough, but I believe doable...IF WE REMAIN IMMUNE TO INJURIES. We have the league's best PK which should give us a guaranteed three points every time we reach the opponent's 35-38 yard line. We have a Special Teams coordinator...so hopefully all those opponent ST points from the last two seasons won't manifest themselves again. Yes, I am motivated, and yes I am optimistic. I am a fan...its my DAWG right. Sic'em dawgs, and send the felines back to their litter on the farm.

Rotate playing Mercer; Kennesaw St; Georgia Southern and Georgia St  as our cupcakes; give the money to Georgia schools to help their programs out and stop giving it out to out of state FCS programs

I attended many games in the early eighties when the stadium only held around 82,000, and if you were standing outside the stadium on the concrete below it would be shaking like an earthquake when Georgia did well on a play. The stadium is not the problem. The SC ad LSU games in 2013 were off the charts. Coach Richt just wants to replicate those types of crowd contributions in the Clemson game, and the crowd will respond.

As far as the trip to Columbia is concerned, the players will not be as shellshocked as the last trip, the 3:30pm game time will help UGA, IMO, and they wlll have the wind at their backs after a good win against SC at home last year. If the Dawgs can scrape by these teams early, I'll agree that the sky is the limit barring injries.

All of the loud Stadiums are completely closed in. Georgia will need to close in the area in front of the bridge if it wants to keep the noise in the stadium if it wants to match some of the Schools who are really loud.

JCDAWG83
JCDAWG83

I can't speak for everyone, but a huge reason the crowd is not as loud as some would like it is because, many times, the team is out on the field looking pitiful.  Watching Troy and Buffalo keep a game close for four quarters doesn't exactly inspire me or most fans to get loud.  It generally instills feelings of disgust.  The same can be said of watching ranked teams move the ball at will against our defense.


Give the fans something to be excited about and Sanford is as loud as any stadium in the country.

Here is what you do about the hand sitters at the games.  When Coach Richt calls for a RED out or asks for the fans to come early, make sure that when the request is reported that the following is added to the text:  The next time you feel the urge to gripe about the team not winning championships just ask yourself what difference you could have made while sitting on your hands at the game.


I can understand elderly folks not being able to yell and scream but there is no excuse for able bodied folks to not do their part.  There will be those that say "Well give us something to cheer about".  There have been plenty of things to cheer about for most of the past 13 years.  And you, the fan, can make a difference in a game.  Yes, by concentrating on the positive (as Bama, LSU, Auburn, even Florida fans do) and focusing on compelling the players to greater heights, you can make a difference.  Ask musicians how much a good crowd helps them play their best.  A dead crowd saps energy from the performer.  I know because I was a musician.  It isn't hocus pocus, it is real.


Did you do your part Bulldog fan?

I'd like to see if we could stick with lower tier FBS schools if we can.  Georgia Southern, because of the state tie and Erk, is always a good OOC opponent as far as I'm concerned.  Beyond that, I don't know.

Hey Bill King, I bet you don't know what Wright Bazemore (arguably the greatest coach in HS football history with 14 Georgia state championships at Valdosta in the highest region along with 3 national championships) and Wally Butts (former UGa coach and winner of 4 SEC championships) had in common?

I looked at our football scores for the first 50 years (1892-1942) and we probably played Mercer 80% of the seasons. Furman, Navy, Citadel, Tulane, Chattanooga and Davidson were also our opponents many times. I thought it was interesting that North Georgia had a football team and played UGa 4 or 5 times in the early 1900s. NOTE: I just read that Mercer had the best first season record (last year) in the history of division 1 football. We may not want to play them in a few more years.

Shep,

Those games give us a rest after 2-3 incredibly tough games, they are great for me taking bunches of kids because lots of tickets are available (and UGa looks invincible to the kids), they give us a chance to give players experience who don't get on the field against tough opponents, and don't forget it is a highlight for the schools we play....as well as much needed income for their programs. So there are many reasons for cupcakes.

This perceived lack of crowd noise in Sanford has been overstated

Yes, there are plenty of times people take a breath and are calm.

Yes, not everybody goes nuts at every play, as you wish they would.

It's unrealistic to expect all 96,000+ people, of all ages, to be rabid dogs for 3 1/2 hours -4 hours (typical tv length).

And you will never not have elderly alumni at games ( be honest, that is who you're griping about). Personally, that is part of the charm of college football. Families and fans of all ages coming together.

Also, many great memories get exaggerated throughout the years.

For instance, those that don't recall people "sitting on their hands", years ago. They did. But most of us didn't notice because we were sitting/standing in the rabid student section. The entire stadium was still loud.

I knew there would be a difference in atmosphere, when I got older and moved to the other side of the stadium with alumni, families, little children, and elderly.

It was more civil. Everybody still cheered. But sometimes, out of courtesy, people would sit for the elderly, the child, or the woman behind them. There is nothing wrong with that.

Sometimes, I think it's more of a "keeping up with the jones'" attitude. "Oh, look at that teams stadium and fans....They were one decibal louder than us....we're no good unless we one up them and are the loudest".

Point is, quit trying to make it sound worse than it actually is. t

@DawginCO I completely AGREE.  I had to live out west for several years while running a company and even though I could hear the Stanford games (a moderately loud affair but nothing like Sanford) the people out there just didnt have the passion for football.  The houses are pretty close together and during the SECCG against Alabama one of our neighbors called the police because apparently there was too much screaming going on when we blocked that FG for a touchdown.  The policeman laughed but did comment that people out there just don't get that excited about college football.  Finally I sold that company and we were able to return home.  Went to our first UGA game in years last year vs USCjr and came away unable to talk (a blessing for many no doubt).  Even though that crowd was pretty vocal, I was shocked at how many times it seemed like fans were sitting on their hands waiting for something to happen...far different than the days I recall.


So I'm going to keep the faith and the positive energy....as well as continue to work to exorcise the TROLLS that come onto our pages to spew their negative energy.


Keep up the good posts!

@Samoan Redcoat UGA already plays Georgia Southern on a semi-regular basis.
 

I don't mind them playing the Eagles, though I'd prefer it if they didn't use that gimmick offense with the dangerous chop blocks. Yeah, I know right now when we play them it serves as a useful preparation for Tech. But the Jackets won't be with that offense forever (how much longer can the Genius last there?), and after that if Southern still is using it, I don't think it will be worth the trouble and danger of playing them.

They've lost to two main cogs most teams had to prepare for last year which were game changers and that was Shaw and Clowney. Carolina doesn't scare me. I think we "should" beat them by a TD or more.

@TrueDawg1986  I just wish that more people would take this stuff seriously.  It's a chicken and the egg effect.  Bama fans didn't give up on the Tide when they were down.  And Georgia isn't even in that neighborhood.  We have very fickle fans and it irks me.  I want to see a sea of red on Aug 30th.  I want Clemson to walk away thinking that the Georgia fans are the best they ever seen.  I want to see our guys feeding on crowd supplied energy.  And I want people to understand that it makes a difference.  

When I was doing gigs there were 2 things that were undeniable about playing in front of a crowd that was into it. 1) Tough songs were much easier.  Mistakes virtually disappeared. 2) Sets flew by.  You couldn't play long enough.

Here is another observation from my work life.  When someone was standing by watching you, expecting you to make a mistake, you undoubtedly would.  Conversely, having someone believe in you makes everything much easier.  These aren't just some fanciful observations.  If you do the research the facts will open your eyes.

It's time for the Georgia fans to become a 12th man for our Bulldogs.  60 minutes of hell for the poor fools that dare to oppose our Bulldogs.
