Georgia closes football season as top 10 team

Three needless losses. We were the victims of good coaching.

Loran Smith: All-Dog Bobo an underappreciated UGA figure

Please, Loran stop begging. Bobo took 4-star talent and produced 3-star results for years. His calls did not surprise me 5 times in 5 years.

Good riddance.

What Others Say: Congress needs more Mr. Smiths (Orlando Sentinel)

Now we'll get to see two years of a do-nothing president, as he vetoes a steady stream of popularly supported legislation. But I'm sure he'll be busy with his pen and his phone, as he ignores the will of the electorate as so clearly expressed last month. If gall were courage, BO would be a great man.

Sikora: Climate-change deniers rely on specious arguments

The globe's not warming. The ocean's not rising. Ocean ice is not shrinking. But I'm glad Mr. Sikora has found religion - cleaving to faith in the absence of empirical evidence. Asserters, unite!

Column: Finally time for UGA to pay Bobo what he’s worth

Page has neglected the only statistic that really matters - 8-3. Apparently, he is content with mediocrity. Spurrier was right. Sunday talent languishes at Georgia. Coordinators stay far too long.

Bear Bryant famously said, "A coach is someone who will take his'n and beat your'n, then take your'n and beat his'n."

A poor coach loses a couple of games he's supposed to win each year.

A mediocre coach wins the games he's supposed to.

A good coach wins the games he's supposed to, and steals a couple of extras.

It's crystal clear Richt is neither good nor mediocre. His loyalty to Bobo is a big reason why.

Bye-bye, Bobo.

What Others Say: America's race problems getting worse (Newsday)

@cornish531: Thanks for a wise and measured post. I disagree with the article, in that I believe it's quite clear what happened in Ferguson. I believe it's also quite clear what happened in Zimmerman/Martin. In both incidents, the criminal died at the scene. But I cannot for the life of me justify choking someone to death when he does not appear to be a threat. It's a shame these cases are lumped together.

Second guessing the squib: Richt says he made the wrong call

@mpd0.59: Pooped yourself with that retort.

Bear Bryant's definition of a coach is ",,,someone who can take his'n and beat your'n, then take your'n and beat his'n."

A mediocre coach wins the games he's he's expected to win. A poor coach loses some expected wins, while a good coach sneaks off with a couple of stolen wins.

It is crystal clear Richt is neither good nor mediocre. His teams have never played up to their talent. He is far too patient, too loyal. He sticks with failing coordinators far too long. To wit, the last two defensive coordinators and the current offensive coordinator. The only calls in recent memory as stupid as the squib kick were the prevent (a la Marion Campbell, bend-but-don't-win) defenses that let beaten opponents back into games last season. Let's see, our defense is winning the game, so let's change everything, rush two or three, and give the QB 10 seconds to throw. Mind numbingly idiotic.

He rewards fifth-year seniors who do not represent the future of the program.

Richt is the perfect coach for those content to settle into comfortable mediocrity.

And, for the record, I'm no high roller like you, but I am in the top 14% in lifetime donation. Does that buy me the right o have an opinion?

Obama to hold White House meetings on Ferguson

"There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.”

Southern Democrats urge a return to party basics

"Higher minimum wage" is not a "labor-friendly policy." Allowing millions of illegals to take American jobs is not a "labor-friendly policy."

Perhaps American black voters are tired of voting adverse to their interests.

Timberlake: Global warming is political, not scientific, issue

I'm happy to see that secular-progressives have found religion. That is to say, powerful, emotional, committed belief, unencumbered by scientific underpinning.

We're told to fear warming that's not happening, rising seal levels that are not rising, shrinking sea ice that's not shrinking.

Believe me, and not your own eyes. I guess that goes for our 'improving economy,' as well.

Suckers.

5 keys to Republicans winning the Senate majority

Ah, the tolerance of the enlightened left comes shining through. How about those who'd like to become rich? Much tougher in the current clime. The wealthy are the most maligned minority others would like to join.

Actually, the five keys to a Republican senate takeover are:

Obama, Reid, Obama, Reid, Obama.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
