i wish chiz well, thanks so much for 2010. however, this job is over now and the buyout mistake has been made by jj a year ago, so now its a matter of +/-$600M or $200M a month, jj, chiz, t jackson all must go before homecoming and i would hire petrino for uga/bama-not with undue pressure to win, but to evaluate staff and hold recruits together before the december dead period. maybe bvg could be interim for the "public perception" with petrino signed sealed and delivered. i too wonder about petrino character-wise looking in from the outside but that's not the issue here, but he is by far the natural/obvious choice given his au/sec background and his fall from grace that makes him hungry, available and probably of age to be here for awhile/finish career.
what did it for me today was the total coaching mistake on 3rd and 3 after mason was stopped for no gain on 2nd in the fourth quarter. you just could not insert wallace/mccaleb and then run east west. listen, i'm not blaming mccaleb because he has done that sideways stuff for years andwallace had three negative plays today (fumbles and big sack earlier in 3rd quarter). said differently, mason/prosch had to stay in game for the chance of a positive outcome b/c he has been the only net positive player on offense we have. even if he only had 1/2.5 yes it would have given us a chance to consider 4th down. chiz had to know mosely/o line is not a 2 minute offense possibility, so you just can't make that substitution. we always here about mason getting "more touches" in 2nd half but that means keeping him in on just these types of plays.
the o-line is a work in progress and will get better. bvg will get better and d did ok today although for the season i've been extremely disappointed w/d line as they simply have not been the strength they should be.
its in some ways a blessing that petrino is available and desires us and we must act. jmo
