The bullet points in bold are the ones I thought were interesting/funny. Bama A&M: got control in first quarter. Didn't know the level of competition going in. 52-0 in 2nd quarter, started subbing in everyone. Good to get guys chance to play. Most of the defensive starters got in for 8 plays. 15-16 plays for offensive starters. Caller Q: thoughts on matchup with ugag up front? They have a lot of new guys. Their offensive line has more experience than defensive line. Broke down games from last few years. Last year, got out of control fast but two years ago, it came down to fourth quarter. 2nd string QB? Mason's been in their system for a few years. Don't expect too many changes. Expecting Gurley to get the ball a lot. Challenged our guys today to match them physically. Remember the last four cause CPJ remembers the games lost than the games won. ugag week feel different? Yea, feels like the week lasts forever. Thursday: Thanksgiving lunch with team/coaches/families then players let loose to visit families. CPJ on Murray: tremendous player for ugag, always played well against us, best wishes. ugag's defense? Big guys inside. Not as experienced in the backend as they've been in the past. Got some wrinkles but we've played with them enough times where both teams know what each does. If there were any changes on our side, wouldn't tell tonight. Twitter Q: When do we find out about bowl? Probably next week. Twitter Q: Social media rules for players? Abuse leads to restriction. Spend a lot of time pre-season to go over the rules. Twitter Q: No running clock? Bama A&M didn't want one. Ref said he could have shortened the quarters but other coach didn't want to do that. Twitter Q: Kick returner? Same guys as before. Caller Q: Extra practice for younger guys for bowl game? Helps a lot. The redshirt guys that's been running scout team gets to play and helps for next season. Caller Q: Assessment of ugag players? Gurley might be best RB in country, they have a very talented team. Caller Q: Any package for Justin and Vad at the same time? No. A lot of Mason's yards came from screens to Gurley, what can we do? We'll know where Gurley is at all times but can't shut out a player like that completely. GSU vs. UF: Proud of Coach Monken. Great for GSU. Not surprised they didn't complete a pass. Clemson vs. USC? Clemson win could mean two ACC teams in BCS bowl. Q: Vad seems hesitant? Vad has gotten better during season but it's not just Vad, everyone needs to be better including coaches. Q: Using more diamond/pistol on 3rd and long? Would like to stay away from 3rd and long situations. Passing on 3rd and long will be low percentage. We probably converted more 3rd downs with option than passing plays. Keys to game: don't change from game to game. Turnovers will be huge. Match them physically. Special teams could be big. Being able to run the ball and stop the run. What's more important? GT vs. ugag in past years? Or ugag vs. other teams this season? Look at both. Caller Q: Seeing progress of team from first game to last game? Have to gauge the competition. The team has gotten in a lot of areas from first game like perimeter blocking but still not where we want to be. Gotten better at pressuring QB. Injuries can result in one step forward, one step back. Q: Preferred weather condition? 60-65F clear. Winds don't bother CPJ too much. Might bother their QB. A lot of ST today outside. Game planning inside. Found kittens today in BDS under west stands: if GT wins, would CPJ adopt a kitten? Dean claimed all the kittens. CPJ has a dog named Lucy, 10 years old German shepherd. Got the dog during CPJ's first season at Navy where they went 2-10 and CPJ needed a friend. Could come home and Lucy didn't care if we won or lost. Wasn't your wife your friend? Only when we won sometimes. Last show: thanks to regulars that attend the weekly show. Makes the show a lot more fun. CPJ is looking forward to a lot of white and gold in stands on Saturday. Anything different tradition wise that CPJ can share for rivalry? No, not that CPJ can share. Coach Erk Russell had a phrase he used to say: intelligent fanaticism. Can't be so emotional that we lose control. Have to learn to channel it. Questions for CPJ? If you have a twitter account, use #GTRadio hashtag to ask a question. If you don't have a twitter account, post here and I'll try to ask it using the @GT_Swarm account (assuming it's a good question). No uniform questions please.
