  • Now at Georgia....Smart considered them 'homerun' hires...the the Georgia program is on the upswing.

    Why did these guys not work out at AR?

    Did we upgrade?

  • Well, they've got a ****load of talent to work with.

    Chaney was terrible.  I mean, just atrocious.
  • #3 by PorkRinds on 13 Sep 2017
  • I think on the upswing has yet to be seen.  They've got it good at Georgia and they can snuggle together at night. Easier division, easier recruiting, and higher profile.  What happened? Chaney' offense sucked and Pittman was butt hurt when we dropped his buddy. In fact part of our OL woes have to do with him checking out his last year here.

  • UGA fans even hate Chaney hire for them. Tennessee fans told us he would suck like Hogs fans tried to do the same for UGA.

    We talk shiite about them  - but Georgia sees them as HOMERUN hires - was the problem Cheney and Pittan  or CBB?

    It's not like Georgia is hiring scrubs.....but here we are talking about them like they couldn't cut it at Arkansas.

    Something doesn't smell right

    I'm not a CBB fan but Chaney was definitely a problem.   He drove me frickin' nuts.

    No, they don't.  Pittman, yes. Chaney? They don't see him as a homerun hire. In fact they hated him last year.

  • #17 by Arthur pigby sellers. on 13 Sep 2017
  • I seem to remember Cheney's offense being dependent on long vertical passing plays which often take a long time to develop.  He should be able to get enough talent in Georgia to protect his QB and let those plays develop. His system didn't work great here though. I agree that Pittman is a very good OL coach and he was the best recruiter CBB has had during his time here.

    Wrong. Georgia fans hate Chaney. They liked Pittman. We warned them about Chaney.. they didn't listen. Then wanted him fired at the end of last season.

    Now they still want him gone, but know they have to fire Pittman to do that.

    I do not just post on this board. I interact with other fans. Georgia hates Chaney. Does not consider him a homerun. This guy is FOS.

    I aminly remember running the ball down teams like T Tech all the way to the 5 .  Just bulldozing them.  then get in the scoring zone and pull double reverses and flea flicker type nonsense. 
    We would average 7 yds. per play running straight at them then get cute and hope to settle for a field goal.

    They just beat ND....are you saying we have upgraded since Cheney / Pittman were here?

    Speaking of looking terrible - we just LOST to TCU and didn't exactly look dominant.

    Yes.  Enos is an upgrade over Chaney.  It's not even close.

    Anderson was a downgrade, though.

    When will Enos show it on the field?

    We are struggling on O, true? Our play calling has been unbelievably bad....



  • #26 by Hog-Corleone on 13 Sep 2017

    I agree, so far this year, he is looking very Chaney-esque...

    You made false claims. Just admit it.
  • #28 by Wildhog on 13 Sep 2017
  • When will Enos show it on the field?



    He did in '15 and '16.  If you couldn't see the enormous improvement from Chaney, then there's nothing I can do to help you.

    I'll readily admit that Enos didn't have a good game against TCU, but I'm looking at the body of work as a whole, and it's not close.
  • #29 by twistitup on 13 Sep 2017
  • You made false claims. Just admit it.

    What's the false claim I made?

    They just beat ND - we lost to TCU and you are claiming we are better off now than when we had Cheney? There are plenty of articles out there talking about the improved Georgia program and superior staff that Smart has assembled.

    He didn't finish last year strong...and has not impressed me much in the qb development dept. either - hopefully AA can turn things around but dayyummm really?

    Not to mention he had to resign at Central Michigan before coming here - what has he done to impress you so much?

    There are a LOT of legitimate ways to criticize Bielema.  This isn't one.

    Our problem was getting Anderson to replace Pittman. Not sure what CBB was thinking with that hire.

    Perfectly legitimate complaint.

    But comparing him to Chaney is not.  Chaney sucks.  Chaney sucks hard.

    I started the thread with a question....not being critical. It's a fact that CBB has trouble retaining a staff, but that is not what this thread is about.

    Chaney MAY suck, but let's keep an eye on Georgia this season and compare offensive stats at the end - who sucks more.....Enos or Chaney?

    At least they started with a W....we can't say the same. It's easy to trash guys that are gone, but if he wasn't respected - he wouldn't be at GEORGIA. Most would say he took a step up from Arkansas
  • #36 by NoogaHog on 13 Sep 2017
  • Chaney took the #1 recruit in the country in Eason and made him into an average QB. New QB's at SCarolina, Ole Miss, and Alabama looked a lot better last year. The fans were calling for Fromm to start before the season started and Eason got hurt.
     
    Just look at BA's turn around under Enos. We may be struggling, and UGA may have more talent, but all things being equal, I would take Enos 10 times out of 10.

    Pittman vs. Anderson is a different discussion entirely.

    Chaney didn't work out at Arkansas because he sucks.

    Pittman didn't work out at Arkansas because Chaney sucks.

    Chaney has a better job now - he must REALLY suck.

    Georgia saw how much they sucked and decided to hire both of them....then they beat ND

    .....and we have awesome coaches, did you watch us tear it up on Sat?

    He left here to go to Pittsburgh... Pittsburgh.  He got the job at UGA because Smart wanted Pittman.

    No, we have a lot of guys that have never coached at this level before.  I don't expect much from them.

    Our coordinators were good hires, though.

    Exactly - that is how bad he wanted out. Then he parlayed that job into a BETTER job in the SEC - Georgia......Georgia

    The common denominator is... Bert.

    We aren't really seeing guys leave to jump to a lateral position for a 20% pay bump
    Though.  So not completely accurate

    You think if we brought Chaney back we'd be better?  I realize you're trolling but I want this to play out.  Bashing Chaney is one of my favorite things.
