You have to understand that he's going to be a homer -- not to be a jerk but believe me Buck bleeds black and red. If you've listened to him over the years he has been very complimentary towards Bama. I have no animosity towards him. Yeah but I do admit, it will be good to beat those Dawgs tomorrow RTR!!!!
    No doubts. I'm going to be a homer as well. Buck picks at Barrett, Bamachile picks at Buck - nothing personal.

    I read that Athens, Georgia is one of the leaders for the most bars in one entire square mile (97) in the U.S. The irrational nature of some (not all) UGA fans combined with their insane alcohol intake must result in you being surrounded by such pleasant people

    I'll give Buck Belue credit for one thing sincerely. I thought it in 1980 and I still do......he has one of the best name's for a football player that I've ever heard.

    He said the Vol's D needed to take out AJ's legs since this was after his leg issue I think against Ole Miss. He also popped off that thier O-Linemen needed to chop block our DT's. Real class. About like some of these Dawg homers.

    I'm a Bama homer but if I'm a media person I might not be able to hide my homerism but you don't have to take a shot at one of the opposing teams best players (on and off the field).

    Just so you know our team is focused and is handling this as a business trip. Sound familiar?

    Atlanta radio host and former UGA QB Buck Belue: "Barrett Jones overrated"

    It has been my experience that people named "Buck" most of the time shouldn't be taken seriously anyway.

    Wow! Buck Freaking Belue has the nads to call ANYONE overrated?

    Re: Atlanta radio host and former UGA QB Buck Belue: "Barrett Jones overrated"

    You know how even the best teams need a certain degree of luck to win a national title? That certainly was true for one of the worst teams to ever win a championship. From the "Lindsey Scott, Lindsey Scott" TD catch that season (his only TD catch that season) to having the greatest freshman running back in history, the 1980 Georigia Bulldogs won despite Buck Belue, not because of him. Some quarterbacks win games through talent, some through a combination of talent and leadership, some are just "game managers," and an occasional is hugely fortunate to have a player in the backfield so amazingly talented that no matter how poor a player the QB is, his team still wins. Buck Belue was the perfect example of the latter. Some of his season stats have already been posted. How about this bit of info from the Bulldog victory for the national championship over Notre Dame:

    Passing
    UGA: Belue 1-12-0, 7 yards (Yes, that is SEVEN whole yards)

    Rushing
    UGA: Walker 36-150, 2 TDs


    Don't let anybody tell you that Belue was ever a great quarterback. His career as a performing football player reached its apex at Valdosta High School where he failed to lead any team to a state championship. He was a pampered child who made a career on the back of Herschel Walker.

    He did play a bit better in the loss to Pitt in the 1982 Sugar Bowl. Here's his stat line from that game:

    Passing
    UGA: Belue 8-15-2, 83 yards (Note that of his 10 passes that were caught, 20% were by the opposing team. Thank goodness for Dan Marino, a truly talented quarterback who denied Georgia a second title.)


    To be fair, Buck Belue must be taken seriously when he speaks of overrated players. One would be hard-pressed to find a more overrated player in the history of SEC football. Much like the recent lottery winners, Belue was in the right place at the right time. His lucky ticket had one number: 34.

    I plan to but it will probably be more like Sunday. After dropping off the boys we don't land back in ATL until after midnight. I've never flown them home after a loss and sure hope I don't have to do so ANYTIME soon.
