Not Sure

Somehow, and for reasons that remain a complete mystery to me, my pointing out the fact that there will be a learning curve with MT as he becomes accustomed to being a D-1 head football coach is the same as directly comparing him to Jon Embree.

Allbuffs never ceases to amaze me. Take an innocuous statement, stretch it to its fullest possible conclusion, and then criticize the conclusion that was never made in the first place.

MT keeps talking about toughness and effort which are good, but leaves a lot to wonder about how he is going to game plan, and how sharp the execution from a coaching stand point will be. Or will there be FHCMM type errors i.e. not getting plays in, running out the clock on a drive to end the first half, two minute offense, special teams execution, etc.

Bama/UGA were established programs with excellent players and excellent game planning from elite head coaches. I am curious how MT will deal with these challenges and how the execution will look out on the field with CU talent. Game planning with UGA/BAMA/Chicago Bears is different than 5-7 CU.
Oh come on-Football is football-whether we're talking UTEP or Clemson. Tucker has been in the HC spot before, so he knows how to gameplan and make in game decisions-like challenging calls. Jay Johnson has called plays at this level too. I've been saying this since the day the news of CMT's hiring leaked-this isn't a rebuild like it was FHCMM got here and it took a year to teach the kids who were here to learn to execute football 101.

Fair question for everybody, and part of the reason why Mel Tucker is here IMO-Did we pull an upset during FHCMM's tenure other than maybe Oregon in 2016? Big question with this staff is going to be can we take down a USC, Washington, Oregon, or Utah.

I just want to see every name on the depth chart make it into the game, along with the win. I trust coach won't let the score tighten up too much after Viska gets 2 or 3 of the 5 TDs in the first half.

FWIW, the UGA program Kirby Smart took over was not elite. It was the whole reason they moved on from Richt. The build to a playoff team was hardly an inevitability.
Disagree with the bold-Mizzou won a couple SEC East titles, and UGA had some things (Will Muschamp's disaster of a tenure at Florida being the most obvious) going for them when Smart took that job.

You are talking about a team having an advantageous path in a down SEC East. That is not nearly the same thing as team which was a few plays away from winning the national championship.

I won't go as far as to say Georgia was "elite" but to pretend they weren't upper echelon is absurd. Richt was 145-51 and won 10 games or more 10 times in 15 seasons. His down years were 9,8,8,8 and 6. If MT could go 145-51 he would get a ****ing statue.

Not sure about the upsettedness of beating the goats by 14-17 points.

Between new o and d systems, different coaches, and it being their super howl, I could see the Buffs winning by a score of 17-14.

That is not the program Smart took over though. What Smart has done there in three years is ridiculously good.

Just remembered that Daniel Arias had that great catch at Washington. MT keeps raving about him. Big things coming from this young man

Hmm. That is the program he took over though? Smart definitely took everything up a few notches though, clearly as they’re now legit contenders. It’s scary to watch a team have a .739 winning percentage and thats disappointing and gets you fired.

Smart took UGA recruiting to a completely new level that Richt couldn't get close to consistently. Georgia is now a team that can legitimately give itself a chance just about every year to win a national championship due to the talent and coaching they have. Crazy to think, as I would give anything to have a coach with a .739 winning percentage but he wasn't at that elite level.

Where do you stand on the 93 degrees is hot or not argument though?

93 degrees is definitely hot...Anna Kendrick, not hot. She’s a 73 degrees and overcast kind of hot.
Anna Kendrick’s level of hot depends on two factors (all individual taste):

1/ do you prefer petite and slender or not?
2/ do you like weed? (she smokes A LOT)

So now we are just supposed to ignore her face? And the snootiness in those awful hotel commercials? You need to dig deeper. Maybe a dedicated thread?

Pfff, Oregon Colorado was simply a case of the better team winning. Honestly Tucker seems like a great hire, y'all can dislike it, but it's akin to hiring Mario Cristobal. These dudes recruit, and they've been around winning at the highest level, which isn't something you can say about, well, the Pac-12 in general right now.

I see what you are saying, but if they expect the same UGA results out of the gate with a CU team that couldn't beat power house Oregon State, it's going to be a bad look.
Wrong, this isn't a team that couldn't beat Oregon St, it is a staff that gave up.

I see a lot of parallels between Tucker’s first year and Edward’s at ASU.
Both inherited teams with decent talent and even elite talent in a few spots.
Edwards exceeded expectations with his team playing smart football with sound fundamentals and within their strengths. Hopefully MT will have the same success.

You keep repeating this but it isn't true. It was a high of 93 dergrees in Boulder, they practiced at 8:50 am until what noon? So it was in the low 80's the entire time. I don't know how programs across the country survive if this is considered bad.
So it was a cold front?
