UF played terrible in the 1st half against Vandy, but somehow overcame it and won.  If it were against a better team, UF definitely would have lost.

I think I mentioned it already this season, but don't discount Vanderbilts ability to play SEC level football. They are much improved (as you saw), and will continue to do so. Their runningbacks are good enough that I wouldn't mind them transferring to Georgia at any point.

Georgia MIGHT could lose 1 more this season as long as it's to either UMass or Georgia Tech... or possibly even the Auburn game, it just depends on what record vs SEC East teams Florida and Kentucky both end up with. But a loss to either Florida or Kentucky means they likely won't win the Eastern division. If they go 10 and 2 (or maybe even 9 and 3 if weird shit makes it work out that way), as long as they get to the SEC Championship and WIN THAT, they've gotta be in the playoffs. I don't see those poll voters NOT giving an SEC Championship winner a ticket to a playoff bowl even if their rank is #7 or lower. There's 5 big conferences that produce a conference champion, and I don't anticipate they'll exclude the SEC winner.

Then again, I have doubts that if the SEC Championship comes down to Georgia and Alabama that Georgia will come out the winner in that one. Unless Georgia SERIOUSLY gets their shit together, Alabama is gonna beat every single SEC opponent they face this year. If I had to call it right now, I'd say Georgia WILL NOT be in the playoffs and Alabama will. However, I dunno if Alabama is gonna be able to win it all this year again. I'd bet on Oklahoma making the playoffs, and they're playing well this year. I think they just lost to Texas this week, but Texas is another much improved team that has potential. Ohio State? I dunno. If they make it to playoffs, it could be a mistake. The only decent opponent they've had so far was Penn State, and they won by 1 point.

I predict a Adren post in the near future. :evilgrin:

I also predict UGA will have their best game of the season in 2 weeks.  Two weeks of hard coaching and stewing over the LSU loss will not be good for UF.  If UGA can win out, they will still make the playoffs.  UGA has not room for errors anymore, another loss and they are done.

I'm sure y'all saw the highlights of the UGA @ LSU game today. :zzz:

I dunno what the fuck the problem was today. Part of it was the officials not calling anything. Both sides were getting away with holding and pass interference fucking WAY too much. I saw BOTH teams doing it, LSU only slightly moreso, but the refs were completely blind to any of it. And the shit with the interception where the refs all waited about 2 minutes to confer with each other before giving an on-field call: FUCK YOU, MAN. Either the fuckers are WATCHING RIGHT NOW and gonna call what they saw, or they weren't watching and shouldn't call anything at all. Some piss poor lazy officiating today.

And I'm not blaming the officials for ANY part of the loss today. Hell no. Just saying that they ADDED to my frustration watching this trainwreck. The Dawgs losing is all on Jake Fromm, or at least 50 to 75% of it. Dunno what the fuck his problem was today, but he played like a fucking amateur. They had opportunities to score, receivers wide open, but it's like he decided before every play "Okay, I'm gonna throw to just X person and if he don't get open, tough shit for everyone else." Dunno if he was hungover or what, but very uncharacteristically shitty with his judgement. The rest of it, I blame the coaching. That fucking retarded fake field goal that turned to shit in the first half is the most obvious example, but there were plenty of other things the coaches did to contribute to this loss. Mostly, keeping Fromm in there and letting him pass when CLEARLY the run game was the way forward. But again, the incompletions were on HIM. If they call pass, he should be able to find SOMEWHERE to go with it... at least moreso than he fucking DID. (dunno what his completion % was but it had to be fucking abysmal) They should've benched him and put Fields in there. That's one lesson from Nick Saban that apparently Kirby Smart has forgotten. Saban is not afraid to sideline his #1 QB if shit isn't going the way it should. And with Fields being a better scrambler and the run game being the only way they were getting traction, THAT should've been the pivot strategy.

Ya know, even when they lose, I don't stop watching. But halfway into the 3rd, I got fed up with their inexcusable bullshit and started flipping through my Dish On-Demand shit looking for a movie to watch instead. If they get their asses kicked by a better team, that's one thing. But when they play under their abilities like lazy fucking cunts and LET the other team win, there's no reason to watch that kinda shit.

They get two weeks to prepare for Florida. Smart better kick their fucking asses until their noses bleed and get their shit back together. That shit today was bullshit. :frustration:

I was winning 2 days ago. After multiple failed attempts by others i swam through massive swells to save something very important and very expensive(millions) before Michael hit. Two branches of military and several fed govt agencies, law enforcement all involved. It's hard to word this humbly and not sound ridiculous, but it was all me. I had a massive audience that hooting and hollering and clapping when I safely returned to shore. Hundreds of people whistling, I declined to comment to media and refused to divluge my name to all news sources. "Can we at least get a first name!?" I apologized and said no.

It's a crazy and intentionally vague story, but I got er done.

I'm always playing. I lay there in bed at night while the old lady's trying to get to sleep plinking on my Fender until she slaps me upside the head. I guess it was about 2010 when I got fed up with how completely shitty my old Ibanez was and I rarely picked up any of my guitars anymore. Then in 2016 when I got that Gibson Les Paul, I finally started playing again.

My playings changed a little bit. I rarely play any metal anymore, mostly blues, southern rock, and classic rock kinda shit. That's also why I need to get a new amp. My old one was put together anticipating I'd be playing metal with it, thus the Peavey poweramp with tighter sounding 6L6 tubes. But I mostly HATE this amp setup now. Sounds like shit to me. All it does well is two basic sounds, a plain old clean sound, and a 1980's Marshall JCM800 hard rock/heavy metal kind of sound by way of the OD1 channel on my Marshall JMP1 preamp. Switching to the OD2 channel, it sounds terrible. Doesn't sound like a tube amp at all, sounds like a cheap distortion pedal.

I wanna get something very British sounding, and unfortunately these days if you want something TRULY British sounding, you have to buy either a Marshall or an Orange, and even then it has to be one of their more expensive ones. The Marshall DSL100's, the successors to the old JCM2000's, JCM900's and JCM800's, they're made in fucking Vietnam now, not England, and they sound dead and lifeless compared next to a new Made In England Marshall JVM head. The DSL100 is about 800 bucks, whereas the JVM's are around 2000 bucks. Orange is the same shit. The 1100 dollar Orange TH30 heads are made in PRC (Peoples Republic of China), where as the Orange Rockerverb and Dual Dark heads are actually "Made In England", and will cost you 2150-2500 bucks. In my opinion... you're not really buying a Marshall or an Orange unless it's actually MADE IN ENGLAND... otherwise you're basically buying some shit they merely "designed" and licensed out to some asian factory to produce with subpar components and subpar quality control standards.

Anyway, since I started playing again, I feel like my playing has improved a good bit. Used to I'd play a blues scale in one place on the neck. But now I'm all over the place like a freak. Maybe at some point I'll try to plug something up to this PC and record myself.

My folks spent a shitload of money on a really nice upright grand piano for me one Christmas. Apparently my mother had aspirations of watching her son play piano in a church performance or some shit. (Dads want their sons to become great high school athletes... moms want their sons to play piano in church but somehow not turn out gay) And apparently the fact that neither one of my parents had any musical inclination themselves didn't give them a moments pause before deciding to drop a few grand on a Wurlitzer. I dunno, apparently they thought if they bought the piano and a few little books that I'd take it upon myself to sit down and LEARN the shit all on my own. Hell naw. Once or twice I sat there and banged out the Jaws theme until it annoyed her and she told me to stop. That was pretty much the extent of my piano playing.

And then a couple years later I discover my dads old shitty 1950's Silvertone cowboy acoustic from when he was a kid rotting away in the basement (the guitar rotting away, not him rotting away... weirdo). And some 25 or 30 years later, I actually DO play guitar, and can play the living fuck out of it, never had a lesson, learned everything I know on my own. And when my old man bought my first real guitar, a decent little Hohner western series acoustic from the early 90's, he probably spent less than 5% of what he spent on that fucking piano. For years afterwards, it was basically just a piece of furniture to dress up the living room. At Christmas time, my mom used to set her It's A Wonderful Life village set with choo-choo train up on the top of it. So... it was like a really expensive mantle or shelf, lol.

They ended up giving it to my sister. I think my oldest nephew plays it a little.

Not sure what's causing the slow-forum-loading; but I've seen it sporadically here too.

Will be interested to see if the move to the new (faster) server changes things. (Have a hard deadline of Nov 23rd to move everything over.)
