Someone on Bobo's staff ran off Treyous Jarrells early in the season and our running game has been crap ever since.

The team is sloppy and undisciplined. We're second-to-last in the FBS in turnover margin (-14), and are near the top in penalties per game (8.63).

Sure you'd expect an adjustment period for a first-year coach, but this team has not grown appreciably as the season has progressed. I won't be at all surprised if we find a way to lose 2 of our final 4 games and miss out on bowl eligibility.
While I got frustrated at times with Bobos play calling at UGA, overall we usually had a strong offense.The talent level was very high, so alot of it was the players. The coach you lost looks like he's going places.

I wouldn't be surprised to start hearing some grumbling coming from Texas A&M fans about Kevin Sumlin after losing 26-10 to Auburn who btw is currently in last place in the division.

My opinion, Mike London's figurative hot seat, should've heated up years ago.
Yesterday, UVa took their 15th straight road loss. It's literally been years since Virginia has won on the road. Even with their QB having a good day (tossing 4 TDs), they still couldn't win yesterday. London has lost 83% of his games on the road. UVa which was a consistent top 20 team for roughly 20 years preceding London, has completely fallen off the grid. In six seasons, London still doesn't have a single bowl win, etc, etc.
And for the most part, Charlottesville seems politely quiet on London's performance (?), maybe a local could correct my perception on that.. Found this recent piece tho..

But not for what you thought since he is retiring from illness. It was great seeing his team rally around him.

Syracuse's effort v. Clemson saved their coach!

I will agree. I think London should eventually be fired.

Mark Richt has no discipline and therefore his players don't give their all. When Bama arrived at Athens and came on the field, UGA players ran towards them making barking noises and derogatory comments. The officials had to get involved, but Richt did nothing. Imagine the same thing happening at Bama. Saban would not have allowed his players to get by with that, and to tell the truth, they would be scared to try. UGA is a bigger school and an older school than Bama, and has the money and talent to be a championship team. The only thing that is holding them back is their coach. It is time for a new start.

And on top of that is the most fertile ground for top recruits, or at least shares that mantle or is right behind Florida. They should never be down or average.
