  • SPORTS MOMENT: *insert any Ted Ginn highlight*

Comment 12 Jun 2019

One time I was at a tailgate for a Wake Forest football game.  Don't ask why, or how I found myself there.  One of the older gentlemen hosting the tailgate became the first person I ever heard say Archie Griffin was overrated.  He also sprinkled in a racist comment, because #south, and I tried to fight him.  I named my dog Archie and I will never stand by idly while the good name of quite possibly the greatest football player of all time is slandered.

For what it's worth, here are the messages I received from a good friend who is a UGA fan this morning: 

"This makes no sense.  He had to sit one more year learning from a great field general in Jake Fromm.  Then he'd be a pro prospect after starting the 2020 season." 

"I don't know how athletic he actually is.  He never actually showed breakaway speed.  He's a quitter at heart and the fake punt in the SEC championship game showed a huge lack of awareness.  It's 4th and 8, coach calls a fake, the defense lines up in a 4-2-3, anyone with fucking eyes knows to check out of the fake" 

"All season they fried forcing him on the field for PT and he never made a single highlight"

"He's a less mature JT Barret" 

I'll include the disclaimer that he is obviously upset by this news; but this is the general feeling I get from the other UGA fans I know after this season.  They all seem disappointed overall with his time at UGA in just about every aspect.

I'm not saying I don't like Fields coming- I'm pumped for him to join the roster and his talent level is without a doubt going to blow us away.  I'm more referring to the people that are already crowning him the starter, or repeatedly bashing Tate for something that nearly every kid his age does:  tweet.  

Again, if I was Tate, and the idea I'm getting from Buckeye Nation is basically that I'm chopped liver and have no chance, I'd consider that as disloyal.  Martell never lost a game in HS, played lights out this season when given the chance, and was pretty highly rated as well by 247 sports.  

Fields gave a postgame interview at UGA where he came across as spoiled/entitled (referring to the time where he basically said "I didn't do shit, i handed the ball off good, how do you think i did" when asked how he thought he played) which rubbed me the wrong way.  

I guess my overall feeling here is: why are we all so convinced Tate isn't good enough to beat Fields out, and why are we all so quick to turn our back on a kid who has already put in two years at our program for someone like Fields? It makes no sense to me.  Let them settle it during spring ball.  The best player will play and I already feel sorry for Tate if he loses that battle and has to hear "I told you so" from Buckeye Nation.

I'm sure he'll give you one to complain about shortly.  The Martell hate is absolutely insane here.  If I'm him I would be looking to leave OSU solely because of the lack of loyalty our fan base has shown towards him.

Stay low and keep those feet moving, pop. Erniebuckeye, I’m truly touched by your relationship and love for your brother.

I agree with your comment and I (as a sane, rational person) agree that our defense has been struggling.  But I can't stand when people say "if it wasn't for turnovers" as if that's not part of the game.  Our defense forced turnovers, adjusted at halftime, and made stops when it counted.  There is obviously room for improvement, that's just a pet peeve of mine.  

A couple years ago when we beat Michigan in OT a lot of Michigan fans complained (and still do) about the refs/the spot/etc and they say "if we didn't turn the ball over you wouldn't have had a chance in OT."  Well yea, but we did force turnovers, and that's part of the game too. 

I'm done ranting now.
