Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Glory, glory! Hallelujah! Thank God! The Georgia Bulldogs’ long, mediocre season is finally over!

The 6-7 win-loss record is an accurate indicator of how this season went.  The pathetic Liberty Bowl game performance and loss to Conference USA’s Central Florida Knights.

Actually, the UGA defense played a good game overall.  The offense’s performance was very pathetic.

Is the SEC still the strongest conference in the nation? Maybe at the top and overall, perhaps by the slimmest of margins.  But that is a discussion for another article.

Just note that a Conference USA team beat an SEC team.

Why did quarterback Aaron Murray wear gloves for the first time?  The gloves obviously didn’t help. 

Good night, Georgia!  Turn out the lights. The party iswell it never really started.

Usually I am not a “blame the coach” type of analyst.  However, if UGA’s downward and mediocre trend continues through next season, Mark Richt needs to be held accountable and a coaching change for 2012 should be strongly considered.

I love Mark Richt.  From what I have read and heard, he is an awesome human being and a great man.  However, overall he has been a good coach who got close to greatness, but then his teams backslid into mediocrity.

I hope that Richt will replace his offensive coaches like he changed defensive coaches after last season.

Now, the defense needs 3-4 talent to recruit, particularly a nose guard who can occupy two blockers at the line of scrimmage to open space for the linebackers to make tackles. 

Yes, top-notch outside linebackers need to be recruited as well, especially to pass rush and pressure opposing quarterbacks.  Georgia also has needs in other positions, such as offensive line, running backs and wide receivers.

In 2010, UGA frequently abandoned the running game.  In 2011, the Bulldogs need to make establishing and maintaining a rushing attack in each game a priority.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Glory, glory! Hallelujah! Thank God! The Georgia Bulldogs’ long, mediocre season is finally over!
