The Forgotten Man for UGA Offense

Top 5 SEC Quarterback Units 2015 #1 – Texas A&M...

ImYourHuckleberry - 5 Keys for UGA During Spring Practice #1 - Quarterback Battle - The Bulldogs come into Spring Practice with proven commodities at nearly every position other than QB.  The competition will be a 3-Way battle between Brice Ramsey, Jacob Park and Faton Bauta.  With Coach Shotty came a blank slate and it is a wide open...

Predictions for the SEC in the NCAA Tournament Kentucky Wildcats - Kentucky is the best team in college basketball and will not be pushed by anyone in the Midwest Region.  However, they could face a test in the Final Four if North Carolina, Wisconsin or Arizona are able to make it to the Final Four from their side of the...

#60 - Josh Cardiello - Review & Looking Forward Josh Cardiello is now entering his third season on campus at UGA and this is the first year where a true opportunity has presented itself for Josh.  Josh was brought to Athens to play either C or OG and...

#55 - Dyshon Sims - Review & Looking Forward Coming out of HS, Sims was one of the most athletic offensive lineman the Bulldogs had signed in the last several years.  At 6'4 275 pounds with long arms and a great first step he certainly looked like he had the potential to develop into a very good SEC offensive lineman in a few years....

#42 - Tim Kimbrough - Season Review & Looking Forward 2014 was a very good season for Kimbrough.  It was always known that he would not play a huge role on defense barring injury to Herrera or Wilson but when on the field Kimbrough had some flash plays.  He is a stoutly built middle linebacker with very good short area burst and he is a thumper.  On...

ImYourHucklelberry - State of the UGA Football Program With Signing Day now behind us and the Class of 2015 complete it is officially the start of a new season.  Offseason workouts are well underway with Coach Hocke implementing a new way of training and preparing the minds and bodies of the team.  The offensive players are feverishly studying the...

#28 Tramel Terry - Review & Looking Forward Although it was not evident on Saturdays, Tramel Terry made some big strides as a defensive back in 2014.  It has been a difficult transition for Terry to convert from a dynamic offensive weapon to the defensive side of the ball after tearing his ACL in an all-star game.  Terry has had to learn...

#26 - Malcolm Mitchell - Review & Looking Forward 2014 was a very frustrating year for Malcolm.  He had an outstanding spring and was finally healthy and then in fall practice right before the season he tweaks his knee again.  He missed the first four games of the season and when he returned he was never quite his explosive self.  The explosion...

#24 – Dominick Sanders – Review & Looking Forward Dominick Sanders was the first “Pruitt Guy” for UGA.  Upon Pruitt's arrival in Athens the Tucker HS standout was one of Pruitt's priority targets.  Pruitt was a big fan of Sanders ball skills and his speed but I don't think anyone could have projected the impact he would have as a true freshmen....

Health calendar In January, Low winter, a dramatic increase in risk of myocardial infarction (ami). The elderly and coronary heart disease risk groups once symptoms such as chest tightness, heart palpitations, angina pectoris, should be timely call "120". Angina pectoris not only show the area before the heart...

#11 – Keyon Brown – Review & Looking Forward Keyon Brown spent 2014 on the scout team which was expected when he came in as an outside linebacker with Jenkins, Floyd and Bellamy already on campus and Lorenzo Carter a part of his recruiting class.  On the scout team Brown was typically assigned the role of the opponents best pass rusher and...

ImYourHuckleberry - Who is Mike Bloomgren? A name that is gaining some traction in the UGA Offensive Coordinator Search over the last couple days is Mike Bloomgren, the Andrew Luck Director of Offense at Stanford is an emerging name with some interesting ties.Bloomgren is 37 years old from Tallahassee, Florida and graduated from...

#8 – Shaun McGee – Review & Looking Forward During his redshirt freshmen season McGee saw the field for the first time in a special teams role.  McGee was used to cover kickoffs and occasionally on the punt coverage team as well.  If you have seen McGee in person the first thing that jumps out to you is just how physically put together the...

#7 – Lorenzo Carter – Review & Looking Forward Everyone expected Lorenzo Carter to see the field early in Athens but the real question was “How Often?”.  With Leonard Floyd's nagging shoulder injury Carter saw the field often, especially in the second half of the season.  Statistically speaking, he had an exceptional year for a true freshmen...

#7 – Jacob Park – Review & Looking Forward Jacob Park arrived in Athens from Stratford HS in Goose Creek, SC as Mr. Football for the state of South Carolina.  The 6'4 210 pound quarterback came to Athens knowing that we was going to redshirt and embraced the opportunity to gain experience and lead the scout team offense.  Over the course...

TOP 5 Remaining on UGA’s Recruiting Board #1 – Chidi Valentine-Okeke – LT – 6'6 310 – Many will disagree with me stating that Chidi is the most important prospect left on UGA's recruiting board but I feel very strongly about this. There is not much film out there on Chidi but from listening to the experts and evaluators he has the...

Pruitt Elevating MORE Than Just UGA Defense Jeremy Pruitt hasn't even been in Athens for a year and yet he is bringing major changes to the Bulldog football program.  First and foremost, the Bulldogs have played some of their best defensive games since the Van Gorder era.  The Auburn game this past weekend and what the Dawgs defense was...

ImYourHuckleberry - MONSTER Recruiting Update When you are an SEC Program and you do not have any home games for a six weekend period and you have a Top 10 conference rival coming into town it is bound to be a monster recruiting weekend.  That is the case for the Bulldogs this weekend as the Auburn Tigers come into town and the Bulldogs are...

ImYourHuckleberry - Problems @ ILB? Recruiting Update The Dawgs have exceptional athletes and potential at the OLB position this season and could potentially have an outstanding group return in 2015 if Leonard Floyd and Jordan Jenkins were to decide to return to Athens.  The inside linebacker position is much more of a question mark with Ramik...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting Update/Defensive Line Talent Deficiency I would argue that the Class of 2015 is the most important recruiting class for the Bulldogs since Mark Richt has arrived in Athens.  While sitting in the stands in Jacksonville, Florida it became very clear that the Bulldogs have a severe talent deficiency at multiple positions – especially on...

Weekend Update (A Must Read!) The Arkansas Razorbacks led the SEC out of the gate this weekend against the UAB should have stayed home put on some Blazers and taken a girl out on a date.  The UAB front seven looked as excited to play the Hogs up front as the owner of an all you can eat buffet when those linemen walk in the...

ImYourHuckleberry - Top 10 SEC Recruiting Battles #1 - Martez Ivey – 6'6 275 – OT – Auburn v. FloridaIvey is the best offensive tackle in the country in the Class of 2015.  The freakishly athletic 6'6 275 offensive tackle has long been thought as a Florida lock but with the recent struggles of the Gators on the field the...

ImYourHuckleberry – The Battle for a Prototypical Left Tackle In the Class of 2007 the Georgia Bulldogs signed a 6'5 280 4-Star offensive tackle from Anson, North Carolina named Trinton Sturdivant.  As a true freshmen, Sturdivant arrived on campus and to the surprise of many became a 1st Team Freshmen All-American.  Sturdivant protected Matthew Stafford's...

ImYourHuckleberry - Huge Recruiting Weekend for the Dawgs Make no mistake about it, this was a huge recruiting weekend for the Bulldogs.  Yes, it was a road game, yes the Bulldogs did not receive any commits but I argue that it may be the biggest weekend for the Dawgs recruiting class since Dawg Night when both Jacob Eason and Ben Cleveland committed to...

Dooley-Herschel curse strikes again I repeat. Vince Dooley sold his football soul for one chance at a national championship for Georgia. The devil sent Herschel down to Georgia and now the Dawgs are cursed.Now all that is left is for Chubb to fumble twice in the first quarter and this season is over.Gonna be lonely in...

ImYourHuckleberry - Statistically Speaking I am a numbers guy therefore at this point in the season it is fun to look at the stats to see where trends are emerging with this team:StrengthsRushing Offense – #8 in Nation – 300.3 YPG – It is amazing to see the Bulldogs averaging over 300 yards...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting Update Unexpected Commit - The Dawgs got big news for the Class of 2015 when defensive lineman Michael Barnett decommited from Florida State and committed to the Dawgs.  The 6'5 261 pound lineman is another "Pruitt Guy".  Pruitt likes guys along the defensive line that can be three down...

There is a QB Controversy at UGA After the performance of Hutson Mason against Tennessee I think it is fair to say UGA has a QB controversy.  Mason looked indecisive in the pocket, his poor arm strength stood out and he made poor...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Tennessee Prediction Gameday is almost here and the Bulldogs and Volunteers are both looking to get their first wins in the SEC of the season in what is a pivotal matchup for both teams.  Tennessee is an extremely young team that has showed flashes of brilliance and also some not so bright moments. The Bulldogs have...

Dawgs Running Game DIFFERENT Than Anything Tennessee Has Seen Tennessee is an improved football team, there is no arguing that.  Tennessee has more talent on this roster than they have had in the last five years, there is no arguing that.  The popular sentiment growing out there that Tennessee will be able to "stop" UGA's running game, one can certainly...

Bauta Package is a MUST Moving Forward I came away impressed by UGA's two backup QB's on Saturday afternoon.  In Ramsey's first collegiate action he ripped off some very nice throws and his arm strength jumped off the screen.  As Ramsey mentioned, he was nervous especially on his first couple throws but on ones where he let it rip he...

ImYourHuckleberry - Freshmen Dawgs IMPRESS in Secondary From the opening whistle it was clear that the Bulldogs were far superior to Troy.  As a matter of fact you could see it in the pregame warmups that UGA just had a different type of athlete.  While these games aren't the most exciting because they are over by halftime for the team they are...

ImYourHuckleberry - Huge Recruiting Update - The Defensive Line #2 Position of Need - DEFENSIVE LINEAgainst South Carolina it became abundantly clear that the Bulldogs need IMPACT players along the defensive front.  The Bulldogs have some solid players, while others are serviceable but nobody has shown that they can consistently take...

ImYourHuckleberry - The "GREAT" Hutson Mason Debate UGA is now through two games of the 2014 football season and stand at 1-1.  With the Dawgs loss against the Gamecocks this past weekend in Columbia (38-35) some say the sky is falling but all of the Bulldogs goals are still right in front of them.  The Dawgs have a powerful rushing attack and an...

ImYourHucklebery - STOP Outsmarting Yourselves! There is plenty of blame to go around for this loss.  The defense certainly underperformed.  In the first half the middle of the field was left wide open and Spurrier to advantage of that and in the second half the Gamecocks offensive line mauled the UGA front seven.  Marshall Morgan who is one...

ImYourHuckleberry - Dawgs v. Gamecocks Prediction ?This game has scared me more on an annual basis than any game on UGA's schedule the past 6 years.  The Gamecocks always play with a giant chip on each shoulder and when the game is in Columbia there is always...

Spurrier's Offense to Provide Much Bigger Test for UGA Defense When the Dawgs faced off against Clemson the Bulldogs were facing an offense designed to attack on the peremiter and use short/intermediate passing routes designed to get their athletes in space.  Also, Clemson had a big group of receivers with 6'2, 6'3 and even 6'4 guys on the perimeter.  The...

Dawgs Offense Presents NEW Challenge for Gamecocks It is going to be very interesting to see how the Dawgs choose to attack the Gamecocks defense in Columbia on Saturday.  Thus far, the Gamecocks have faced uptempo spread teams in Texas A&M and East Carolina and have struggled mightily in both of those games.  The Gamecocks gave up 511 yards...

ImYourHuckleberry - Expectations for Dawgs Rising TOO FAST? The UGA hype train continued to pick up steam on Tuesday.  ESPN released their first Heisman Rankings and Todd Gurley was #1 on that list.  In the ESPN Power Rankings the Bulldogs jumped all the way to #2, only 2 points behind last season's national champions, the FSU Seminoles.  In the AP Poll...

ImYourHuckleberry - Larry Munson Would Have Loved Jeremy Pruitt Each and every day Jeremy Pruitt gives another reason for the Bulldog Nation to love him.  His first appearance in front of the media since early in the preseason came on Tuesday and Pruitt did not disappoint.  He had some great/very telling quotes:"We didn't have very many mental errors...

ImYourHuckleberry - Jonathan Ledbetter a SPECIAL Prospect Having watched Jonathan Ledbetter over the summer at The Opening and now watching him in his first game of the season for Tucker HS it is clear that the Bulldogs have a commitment from a special prospect.  At every bit of 6'4 270 pounds Tucker runs like a deer and is strong as an ox.  In watching...

Vic Beasley to Get Clowney Treatment? When UGA's offense takes the field for the first time in 2014 all eyes are going to be on #3.  Everyone in the red and black will be excited to see what Gurley is going to do when he touches the ball and everyone in purple and gold will be looking to see what manchild Vic Beasley will do on his...

ImYourHuckleberry - In-Depth Scouting Report of Clemson DEFENSE Yesterday I went in-depth with the Clemson Offense so today it is time to go in depth with the Clemson defense.  Let's go!Personnel:While the Clemson offense is rebuilding this season the Clemson defense is reloading and already loaded group.  Quandon Christian,...

ImYourHuckleberry - In Depth Scouting Report of CLEMSON Offense Finally, game week is here!!  The time for making assumptions and predictions is almost over and it is time to finally see what the Dawgs have this year.  I know it's only Saturday but in my mind it is already gameweek so it is time to scout Clemson:Personnel:This...

ImYourHuckleberry - EXPECTATIONS for Pruitt and The Geogia Defense Yesterday I was asked the question "What are your expectations for Georgia's defense the first two games against Clemson and South Carolina?"  My first instinct was to say I want them too look like the FSU defense of last season because of the amount of talent the Dawgs have in the front seven...

ImYourHuckleberry - EXPECTATIONS for Pruitt & The UGA Defense Yesterday I was asked the question "What are your expectations for Georgia's defense the first two games against Clemson and South Carolina?"  My first instinct was to say I want them too look like the FSU defense of last season because of the amount of talent the Dawgs have in the front seven...

UGA & LSU Battling over 4-Star Athlete The battle for Donte Jackson's signature appears to only be heating up between the Dawgs and Bayou Bengals.  Georgia was the first to offer Jackson and that has remained a large factor in his recruitment as has the hiring of Jeremy Pruitt at defensive coordinator and the pedigree that comes with...

ImYourHuckleberry - DB Camp Update Update/PerspectiveThere is absolutely no reason to sit here and act like I have any idea of how things are going to play out in the secondary.  There is only one thing that is for certain, Damian Swann is going to be starting at cornerback against Clemson.  Outside of that there is no...

ImYourHuckleberry – 5 Keys for Offense in Fall Camp #1 – The Blind Side - Coach Bobo and Coach Friend need to decide early in fall practice who is going to be protecting Hutson Mason's blind side.  Mason is a QB who is going to make his living from the pocket and while does have good pocket presence if the LT can't hold up Mason...

ImYourHuckleberry - What Would Things Look Like with Early Signing Period? Recently there has been a great deal of debate on whether or not their should be an early signing period in college football.  I for one am a very big advocate of an early signing period in college football and I don't believe their should be many hurdles in making it a reality.  However there...

ImYourHuckleberry - Quick Thoughts on Deontai Williams Commit Deontai Williams - 6'2 180 - FS/SS This kid is a "Pruitt Guy" that is a very versatile secondary guy who can play either safety position but also has the ability to play man on a slot receiver or TE if need be. First thing that stands out about Williams is how aggressive he...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting Update As I mentioned over the weekend we have not entered the recruiting "Dead Period".  While it is a dead period it is also time for one of the biggest events in all of recruiting - The Opening.  Some of the best talent in the country will be on display on ESPNU for you to see with your own eyes....

Dismissal of Tray Matthews - HELP or HURT? Mark Richt's statement regarding Tray Matthews dismissal from the team says it all - This dismissal was "to make room for guys who want to do things right".  That is as close to a slam (or putdown) as you will ever get from Richt.  Frankly, I think that says it all.  Tray was immature and...

Chubb & Michel's IMPACT Behind the Scenes It is that time of year when the young pups arrive on campus, enroll in class and get to meet their new teammates and make first impressions.  Two players that the Bulldog Nation are anxiously awaiting to see don the Red & Black are 5-Star tailbacks Nick Chubb and Sony Michel.  What they did on...

ImYourHuckleberry - Film Study - Chuma Edoga - 6'4 280 - OT Edoga is not your prototypical 6'6 310 pound "franchise" left tackle.  However, when you watch his film the first thing that jumps out at you is that he looks like an elite left tackle prospect.  While only 6'4 it has been reported that he has a 6'9 wingpan which is some serious arm length and...

ImYourHuckleberry - Film Study - Dallas Warmack - 6'2 305 - C/OG The younger brother of one of the most dominant SEC lineman in recent history is bound to be a highly recruited prospect especially when he has nearly identical measurables.  Dallas Warmack measures in a 6'2 305 and projects to be a high level SEC offensive guard or center on the collegiate...

ImYourHuckleberry - Film Study - Terry Godwin - 6'0 170 - WR/CB The Bulldogs 2015 recruiting class is beginning to take shape and it is time to take an in-depth look at the prospects that have already committed to the Dawgs and those that the Bulldogs are hoping to add to this class.  The first film study begins with the Bulldogs highest rated commitment at...

SEC Post-Spring Power Rankings - #2 Georgia Bulldogs Last season the Bulldogs had one of the worst passing defenses in school history and horrible stretch of injuries on the offense that saw the Aaron Murray, Todd Gurley, Keith Marshall, Malcolm Mitchell, Chris Conley, Michael Bennett, Justin Scott-Wesley and Jay Rome all miss a significant amount...

SEC Top 20 Impact Freshmen - #17 - Malkom Parrish - DB - Georgia The Bulldogs head into 2014 with a lot of questions on defense but no questions are any bigger than who will line up in the secondary and where they will line up.  There is talent already on campus with the likes of Damian Swann, Corey Moore, Tray Matthews, Shaq Wiggins, Sheldon Dawson, Brendan...

Pruitt Making INTENSE First Impression If you bleed Red & Black the reports coming out of the first two spring practices regarding Jeremy Pruitt.  There are several things that have caught my eye through two practices:(1) Tempo – The Bulldogs are practicing at a very high tempo.  There is not much standing...

Dawgs FINALLY Adjusting to Uptempo Game! You play how you practice.  There is no more simple way to put it and the Bulldogs are making significant adjustments as to how they practice this spring.  Everything the Bulldogs are doing in practice is being done with a sense of urgency.  There is no more slow, methodical pace to practice it...

ImYourHuckleberry – Richt Getting it Right, Yet Again When Richt stepped to the podium for the first press conference after spring practice he knew the first question that was going to come.  He knew it was going to be about the four players who were arrested for allegedly committing “theft by deception”.  You all know the background story by now so...

ImYourHuckleberry - 3 Keys for OFFENSE This Spring! #3 - Chemistry Between Mason and Receivers - Most of the top receivers on UGA roster Chris Conley, Michael Bennett and Malcom Mitchell have spent a majority of their careers catching passes from Aaron Murray.  Conley and Bennett could read what Murray was going to do before he did it and that...

ImYourHuckleberry – Going BIG on the Offensive Line ~~As the Bulldogs head into spring practice there is only one person with a guaranteed starting spot on the offensive line – David Andrews.  He will be lining up at center and he will be the anchor for this unit that will be relied upon to provide leadership.  Outside of that, everything else is...

UGA Building SERIOUS Momentum in 2015 Recruiting Class Nowadays there is recruiting overload.  With Signing Day 2014 having just wrapped up things are already in full swing for 2015 recruiting.  The UGA staff was given a couple days off after Signing Day to recharge the batteries but are already hitting the road hard trying to lock down the borders...

ImYourHuckleberry - Signing Day Prediction for Andrew Williams Williams is one of the guys that I never understood why UGA and Todd Grantham did not recruit any harder.  Williams is a massive 6'5 260 with the frame to fill easily fill out around 275-280 pounds and be a player very similar to Ray Drew.  In my opinion, Williams is the definition of a “Pruitt...

ImYourHuckleberry – Signing Day Prediction for Tavon Ross I don't believe there is any other recruit in the Southeast that saw as meteoric of a rise in the recruiting rankings and attention paid to him than Tavon Ross saw.  Late in the process once the 6'1 210 pound safeties senior highlights were released everyone was blown away and wondering where...

ImYourHuckleberry - Signing Day Prediction for Lorenzo Carter Finally, tomorrow is Signing Day and we get to put all of this drama and craziness behind us for a little bit.  But in the annual tradition I will make my Signing Day picks that involve UGA.  In 2012 I got lucky and picked 4 out of 5 correctly with Sheldon Dawson, JHC, Todd Gurley and Jordan...

UGA Looking to Add MISSING Pieces to Secondary with Class of 2014 This weekend things have gotten very interesting for the Bulldogs recruiting class.  It was a huge recruiting weekend on campus with players like Bryson Allen-Williams and Lorenzo Carter but there were also some very significant developments outside of those two.  Those developments mostly have...

ImYourHuckleberry - Let the MONSTER Recruiting Weekend Begin! The most fun recruiting weekend of the year has begun!  This weekend is the last chance for coaching staffs around the SEC and the entire country to make a push with their top uncommitted prospects and get them to sign on the dotted line.  You also have the last minute pushes for prospects that...

REBUILDING Georgia's Special Teams UGA's Special Teams were absolutely atrocious for the most part in 2013.  There were only two bright spots in my opinion and one of them we lost to graduation.  First and foremost, Marshall Morgan emerged as an excellent field goal kicker and he will be a great asset to bring back to Athens....

An OPPORTUNITY to Build Best Offensive Line in Richt Era I have been watching a lot of film on UGA's incoming offensive line recruits in the Class of 2014 and some of the offensive lineman that UGA is recruiting very heavily for the Class of 2015 and if things play out right the Bulldogs finally have the opportunity to  build a powerful, maybe even...

UGA’s Goal – To TRULY Run This State in Recruiting! It has been said for the longest time that if the Bulldogs could lock down the state of Georgia in recruiting that there is no excuses for this program to not be competing for National Championships every year.  Unfortunately for the Bulldogs too much of the top talent has been escaping the state...

Pruitt's Philosophy INCREDIBLY Simple & Impressive “It is a totally different defense as far as no more reading, it's just like see it and go.” - Mario Edwards - DEThis weekend I spent some time going back and reading articles where the Florida State players and staff discussed Jeremy Pruitt's scheme.  I wanted to...

ImYourHuckleberry - Friday Mailbag! I must admit I am enjoying the offseason.  Usually I hate for college football season to come to an end but after the ups and downs of the 2013 season it has been nice to take a little bit of a break but now with Signing Day quickly approaching and the news about Coach Lakatos its time to delve...

Dawwg Commits Show Off in US Army All-American Game 1st QUARTERMalcolm Parrish - Was back to return the opening kickoff of the game but the ball was not kicked to him.  As we have seen by UGA's return game they could use a lot of help in that area.Sony Michel - In the first quarter...

ImYourHuckleberry - 5 Wishes for UGA Football in 2014 #5 – Josh Harvey-Clemmons Grows UpIf you asked me to list the Top 5 most athletically gifted players on UGA's roster there is no question that JHC would be among the Top 5.  When you watch him on the field he immediately stands out with his size but then when you see him...

Grantham WILL Bring Back Junkyard Dawgs Defense This season there has been a great deal of criticism surrounding the direction of the Bulldog defense.  That is no surprise given the struggles on the field from Week 1 all the way through the final game of the regular season against Georgia Tech.  Some argue that Grantham is not capable of...

No Time for SPECULATION from Richt In a move that does not come as much of a surprise, at least to me, Mark Richt quickly put an end to the speculation about changes to the staff this offseason.  In his Sunday teleconference Richt stated, “Everybody should be back” and “continuity is a good thing for Georgia”.  As I had mentioned...

HUGE Opportunity for Hutson Mason It was painful to watch Aaron Murray having to be carried off the field at Sanford Stadium instead of walking off under his own power his team just having finished off a blowout victory in his final home game.  However, this is a game that should cememt Murray's legacy and make him one of the...

Dawgs PUMMEL Wildcats Saturday Night! This has been one of the most stressful seasons for UGA fans that I have ever seen.  The Clemson, South Carolina, LSU, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Florida and Auburn games were all nail biters until the very end.  Rarely this season has there been a game where UGA dominates from the opening snap for...

Mitchell MISSED More Than You Know Georgia's season got off to an ominous start this season when Todd Gurley exploded for a 75-yard TD in the first quarter against Clemson and his teammate Malcolm Mitchell jumped to celebrate with Gurley and when he landed his ACL popped.  When those kinds of things happen part of me tends to...

The Weekend that Was in SEC Football Auburn 43 – Georgia 38In the best game of the weekend in the SEC and perhaps the country the Bulldogs and Tigers battled back and forth.  The Tigers had all of the momentum early in the game, partly assisted by the officials, but the Bulldogs came roaring back in the 4th...

SEC Officiating and Penn Wagers are a PROBLEM! I watch a lot of college football.  I watch football games from multiple conferences including the PAC 12, BIG 12, BIG 10, ACC and SEC most often.  When I watch conferences other than the SEC there have been a fair amount of targeting calls.  When I see the targeting calls I would say 90% of the...

Richt Has TOUGH Decision Ahead on Grantham This is Todd Grantham's 4th Season in Athens.  In his four years in Athens UGA has had largely had a successful run on defense.  Below look at a few of the key statistical trends:Rushing Defense:2010 - #56 - 147.23 ypg2011 - #11 - 101.21 ypg2012 - #77...

ImYourHuckleberry - Richt’s Job 100% Secure If you have read my articles on a consistent basis you will know that I have always been a huge supporter of Mark Richt.  However, I had begun to question whether or not McGarity should keep him in Athens after UGA's loss to Vanderbilt.  Now, after a completely gut wrenching loss to Auburn I...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Auburn PREDICTION This weekend the #25 Georgia Bulldogs travel to the Plains to take on the #7 Auburn Tigers.  In a scheduling quirk this is the second season in a row that the Bulldogs will be making the trip to Auburn to face a Tiger team that is hungry to avenge a 38-0 thrashing by the Bulldogs on their home...

ImYourHuckleberry - BIG TIME Recruiting Update!!!

The FUTURE With Hutson Mason For the first time in over two years Hutson Mason had a chance to take some snaps Between the Hedges in a real game.  In mop up duty against Appalachian State, Mason was 11-16 for 160 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT.  Overall, he looked ready and showed very few signs of rust given how long it had been...

LEADER Emerging in the Secondary Finally back home from a wonderful vacation in Saint Simons and man does it feel good to be a Dawg!  For the first time since 1987, 1988 and 1989 the Bulldogs have won three in a row against the Gators and have finally turned the tide of the series.  I know some are disappointed in the 2nd Half...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Florida PREDICTION This is a swing game for both teams seasons.  Sure, both teams had much higher expectations then coming into this game both at 4-3 and both unranked but each team still has the opportunity to get to 10 wins if they win out the rest of the season and win their bowl game.  It also has implications...

Demoralizing the Gator D! This is what everyone has been waiting for since the LSU game, the return of Todd Gurley - the most talented running back in the nation.  It could not come at a better time for the Bulldogs heading into the Cocktail Party against a Florida defense that boasts one of the best pass defenses in the...

CHANGE Must be Made with Targeting Penalty The targeting penalty in college football is full of flaws.  Some of the flaws are the most fundamental flaws and some are completely egregious.  In the UGA game vs. Vanderbilt you saw an example of the fundamental flaws and the egregious flaws that are part of this rule.  Let's take a quick...

ImYourHuckleberry - 10 POSITIVES to Take from 2013 Season to Date #1 – The Bulldog Nation – The UGA fans have stepped up to the plate in a big way this season unlike I have ever seen.  Following a loss to Clemson the environment in Sanford Stadium against South Carolina was incredible.  Just when I thought it could not get any louder the...

ImYourHuckleberry - BIG CHANGES Ahead in 2014! It is a great time for this team to have an off week.  It is time for guys like Todd Gurley, Michael Bennett, Tray Matthews and hopefully Chris Conley and Josh Harvey-Clemons to get healthy.  It is also time for this team to get their minds right and gather themselves after all of their season...

TIME for CHANGE at Head Coach? If you have followed my blog and my writing for the last 3-4 years you know that I am a huge supporter of Mark Richt.  I have had the opportunity to meet the man and I respect him as a person and a head coach.  But now we have reached a crossroads in his tenure as head coach.  Yes, there is an...

FANternity Mid-Season ALL-SEC Team After making a great deal of very difficult decisions this is our 2013 Mid-Season All-SEC team.  Who did we leave off?  Who left you think no way he is 1st Team!!  Let us know!QB – Johnny Manziel – Texas A&MRB – Mike Davis – South CarolinaRB – Todd Gurley –...

TIME for Grantham to GO? The great debate raging within the Bulldog Nation after another lackluster performance by the Georgia defense is whether or not Todd Grantham should have a job as defensive coordinator at the end of the season.  When you sit down and analyze how the defense underachieved last season and how much...

A Reason for OPTIMISM for UGA Defense Through the first four games of the season against Clemson, South Carolina, North Texas and LSU the Bulldogs defense took its fair share of criticism for not performing at a level expected of UGA fans.  Last weekend after the Bulldogs let the Volunteers score three TD's in the second half the...

An EXCELLENT Chance for Bennett The best piece of news to come out of Mark Richt's press conference yesterday was that Michael Bennett's arthroscopic surgery on his right knee went excellent and they did not find anything unexpected.  As a result Richt stated, “I'm not a doctor or anything but just from what I'm hearing, my...

Grantham's Scheme or Lack of Execution to BLAME? Todd Grantham has been taking a lot of heat over the performance of his defense thus far this season.  At first many people were willing to cut him a break because the defense was so young but now fans are starting to get restless as the Dawgs are now five games into the season and the defense is...

UGA Searching for PLAYMAKERS In the overtime victory against the Volunteers we all know how much talent/playmaking ability the Bulldogs lost.  Justin Scott-Welsey, arguably the Bulldogs fastest receiver who had become one of Murray's favorite targets done for the year.  Keith Marshall, a homerun threat at tailback done for...

STYLE POINTS Important Against Tennessee After UGA's 3-1 start to the season with victories against #6 South Carolina, #6 LSU and their only loss to #3 Clemson UGA fans are understandably starting to think of scenarios that could land them in Pasadena for the National Championship game.  Obviously, the Bulldogs would need to win their...

ESPN Not High on Aaron Murray’s NFL Future I just happened to stumble upon this today on the ESPN Insider and it baffled me the way ESPN Scouts McShay and Kiper look at Aaron Murray.  First of all, look at this list of the Top 11 Draft Eligible quarterbacks for the 2014 Draft and their Scouts, Inc. Grade:

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Tennessee PREDICTION As expected after a brutal stretch to start the season facing 3 Top 10 teams the Bulldogs are a bit banged up.  Todd Gurley's ankle has him looking at best as 50/50 for the game but UGA coaches would likely prefer to hold him out this weekend to let him get back closer to 100%.  Tray Matthews who...

Who STARTS at Free Safety for UGA v. Tennessee The UGA coaching staff has a very interesting decision in front of them this weekend when the Bulldogs head to Knoxville to face the Volunteers.  Unless you were living under a rock yesterday you heard that Tray Matthews was not at practice after having “tweaked” his hamstring in practice on...

Head Coach Position INEVITABLE for Bobo? This season Georgia once again has one of the most powerful and explosive offenses in the country and Mike Bobo is receiving a great deal of recognition across the country for what he has been able to do.  Oft maligned by the Georgia fan base early in his career as Offensive Coordinator for...

Dawgs IMPROVING in Recruitment of TOP In-State Prospects Over the last few years UGA has landed some very solid recruiting classes.  According to 247 Sports in 2011 the Bulldogs had the #5 Class in the Nation – in 2012 they ranked #8 in the Nation and then in 2013 the Dawgs ranked #11 in the country.  While those are all solid classes, in the two years...

Dawgs New MONSTER in the MIDDLE! In UGA's season opener against Clemson the Bulldogs defense allowed 197 yards rushing.  In Week 2 against the Gamecocks the Bulldogs allowed 226 yards rushing.  The Bulldog Nation was getting very frustrated with Todd Grantham's inability to stop the run and many were saying that his scheme...

Dawgs Make BIG MOVE with Raekwon McMillan In a great piece of reporting by the AJC and Michael Carvell he was able to get ahold of Raekwon McMillan after his visit to Athens for the LSU game and was able to get some very revealing quotes from McMillan.  Among some of the quotes from McMillan that were very positive in the article...

ImYourHuckleberry - LSU v. UGA Report Card Quarterback – A+ – Just when I thought Aaron Murray could not play any better than he did against South Carolina he elevated his game to a whole new level against LSU.  The most impressive part of the game was how calm and cool he was in the pocket, especially on the go ahead...

ImYourHuckleberry – UGA v. LSU PREDICTION! The Bayou Bengals come calling on the Dawgs in Athens this week in another game that will determine National Championship aspirations.  This is the third game for the Bulldogs already in only five weeks that they will have played with everything on the line.  LSU on the other hand played a tough...

ImYourHuckleberry – 5 KEY Players for LSU You have all heard the main story line leading up to this game with Zach Mettenberger returning to Athens.  I am sure you are all very familiar with a few other names from the LSU team like Jeremy Hill, Odell Beckham, Anthony Johnson and Jalen Mills.  However, there are still a few other players...

Kublanow Making STRONG Push for Playing Time! I am the first to admit when I was wrong about something and it appears that I was wrong about Brandon Kublanow.  I stated before the season started that I thought Kublanow was a lock to be a redshirt this season because of the experienced returning depth on the offensive line.  However, on the...

ImYourHuckleberry - Keyon Brown PREDICTION! As I am certain all of you know, Keyon Brown of Wauchula, FL will be making his decision on where he will be playing college football this Thursday.  Brown is a 6'3 235 pound DE/OLB with an incredible first step and a very well developed repertoire of pass rushing moves for such a young HS...

LSU a BAD Matchup for Georgia Defense? I have watched enough LSU football over the last two days enough to make me more nervous than I was for the Clemson or South Carolina game.  When I watch them play I see an attitude, a swagger and extreme physicality.  Like Coach Richt has said, LSU's goal is to punish you and break your will...

ImYourHuckleberry - MONSTER Recruiting Update! Lorenzo Carter – 6'6 235 – OLB – 5 Star – Lorenzo is going to be back in Athens this weekend for the UGA v. LSU game and that is huge for the Bulldogs.  Lorenzo was just in Athens for the South Carolina game and since then has taken visits to both Auburn and Florida.  He has had...

The Kiss of DEATH for Dawgs? For those of you that are superstitious this weekends matchup against the LSU has you saying - “Oh Shit”.  College Gameday has announced that they will be in Athens and the Bulldogs recent history when Gameday is at one of their games has not been good.Then you throw on top of that the...

ImYourHuckleberry - The GOOD, BAD & UGLY v. North Texas THE GOODAaron Murray - Sure, Aaron made one terrible decision on the attempted throw to Michael Bennett in the red zone and he was the first to admit it.  Outside of that Aaron had another excellent game.  He is more accurate then ever and when you combine...

Gurley WILL NOT Win the HEISMAN Admittedly, I have not seen every player in all of college football this season.  However, through the first three weeks of the season I feel pretty comfortable saying that it will be one of six players in the country that are in consideration for the Heisman will win the award.  They are Teddy...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. North Texas PREDICTION It has been a nice little breather for the fan base and the coaching staff as well as the players after a brutal anxiety ridden start to the season.  The off week could not have come at a better time for the Bulldogs with guys like Todd Gurley, Keith Marshall, Kenarious Gates and several other...

Is it Reggie Carter's TIME? I went back and re-watched a good big of the South Carolina game and while Ramik Wilson racked up a bunch of tackles it looked like he was really struggling out there.  He has very good athletic ability and above average speed for a middle linebacker which has allowed him to rack up a bunch of...

Will Friend’s CHALLENGE to the Offensive Line The UGA offensive line played their best game in two years 10 days ago against South Carolina.  They were getting crushed by the media and fans after a subpar performance against Clemson and all they did was rise to the occasion against one of the best defensive lines in the country and dominate...

Way to Early ELISHA SHAW Signing Day PREDICTION? Elisha Shaw - 6'6 296 - DL - Elisha Shaw is a great young man and an incredibly talented player who unfortunately is dealing with some health issues as of right now.  Unfortunately he has not been able to play to date this season and is currently in a neck brace. That is his #1...

Way to Early LORENZO CARTER Signing Day PREDICTION Lorenzo Carter - 6'6 235 - OLB - Carter's recruitment has been all over the place over the last few months as you would expect from a 5-star prospect of his caliber but three schools have been consistent over that time - Georgia, Alabama and Florida.  He has now scheduled...

ImYourHuckleberry - Week 3 PREDICTIONS Tennessee @ #2 Oregon – The Vols make the roadtrip this weekend out to Eugene to face the Oregon Ducks.  This is a huge test for Butch Jones as a head coach and the Tennessee defense going up against one of the most high powered offenses in the country.  Tennessee will have some...

IMPOSSIBLE Expectations for Tray Matthews & JHC This season we are learning a lot about lofty expectations and how difficult they can be to live up to.  The shining example of that is ESPN's incredible hype of Jadeveon Clowney this offseason that made everyone in the country think he is superman and that he could go 1-on-11 and still nobody...

Grantham STRUGGLING to Stop the RUN A disturbing trend at UGA over the last season plus the first two games of this season is Georgia's inability stop the opponents run game.  At the end of last season in the SEC Championship the Bulldogs defense was throttled by the Alabama running game which is understandable given that Alabama...

Aaron Murray's FAVORITE New WEAPON! There is no doubt whatsoever that the loss of Malcolm Mitchell hurts.  He is probably UGA's most elusive receiver in the open field as we saw against Florida last year when he broke a tackle and then ran through a facemask to score a huge touchdown.  However, one thing we saw last year when the...

Aaron Murray’s FAVORITE New WEAPON! There is no doubt whatsoever that the loss of Malcolm Mitchell hurts.  He is probably UGA's most elusive receiver in the open field as we saw against Florida last year when he broke a tackle and then ran through a facemask to score a huge touchdown.  However, one thing we saw last year when the...

ImYourHuckleberry - MAJOR Recruiting Update As you all know this was a HUGE recruiting weekend for the Bulldogs with the Gamecocks coming into town.  From what I have heard and also from players reactions themselves on Twitter many recruits left the game incredibly impressed with what they saw from the Georgia football team and the UGA...

ImYourHuckleberry - PRESSURE is On Grantham! After the performance of the Bulldogs offense the first two weeks of this season there is no question that this offense will be a juggernaut that will be very difficult to stop this season.  The offensive line made a drastic improvement from Week 1 to Week 2 which I truly did not expect.  Aaron...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update This is a huge recruiting weekend for the Bulldogs with all of the high profile recruits that will be on campus this weekend.  This weekend alongside the LSU weekend is probably the Dawgs two most important game weekends of the season.  It is just another reason why the atmosphere needs to be...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. South Carolina PREDICTION This is cupcake week in the SEC this week with only two premiere games.  UGA v. South Carolina is certainly the marquee matchup of the week in the SEC but Miami v. Florida will also be a big battle.  In the end I expect the Gators defense to be too much for Miami's offense but it will be really...

Behind ENEMY Lines - UGA v. South Carolina Edition One of my good friends Rob is a Gamecocks insider and follows South Carolina athletics closer then just about anyone I know.  Last year I asked him some questions about the UGA v. South Carolina matchup and the article received a...

CONFIDENT Gamecocks Talking TRASH! Nothing gets me fired up more than going over to the opponents websites and looking for some good old fashioned trash talk.  After having gone to South Carolina last year and the way their fans acted when they beat us I have no respect for Gamecocks fans anymore.  They were a classless bunch that...

Aaron Murray's LAST Chance! Leading up to, during and after the game against Clemson UGA fans and Aaron Murray had to here over and over how Murray can't win the big game.  It was very difficult for me to listen to because I am a fan of Aaron, I think he does everything the right way and is everything good about college...

For the LADIES (and the men who keep them HAPPY) First, I want to thank all you who read and commented on my blog last week. UGA Football and Fashion are two of my foremost passions. So being able to combine them into one blog is a dream come true.I know that this week's blog is a little late, so if you all really like the below...

Something SPECIAL for UGA v. South Carolina? I had wrote a blog a few months back titled “Something Special for South Carolina”. It was a place for me to put my ideas and UGA fans to put theirs on what they would like the University to do to help get the crowd extra hyped up and ridiculously loud for this weekend's game. There were a lot of...

What Was that COACH Bobo?? After the great season Coach Bobo had last year calling plays I am trying to be patient with him given that it is only one game into the season but I just can't move on from some of the terrible play-calling from the Clemson game.  I mean seriously, there were several times when I think my 10...

HUGE Defensive Improvement v. Gamecocks? Watching the game from the stands at Clemson I left the game feeling good about the Dawgs young defense.  Amarlo Herrera and Ramik Wilson did a very nice job at inside linebacker for their first time playing together.  I think that Ray Drew and Sterling Bailey both had breakout games and are...

Is UGA Offensive Line SOFT? This year one of the strengths of the UGA offensive line should be the offensive line.  Coming out of spring and fall practice we heard a lot of good things about the talent and depth that we had returning this season (including all 5 starters from last season) but in the first game of the season...

ImYourHuckleberry - The Great, Good, Bad & Ugly v. Clemson Another heartbreaking loss for the Dawgs against a very good football team.  I'm sure everyone is hurting today but there are some things to be optimistic about and some things to worry about.  Below is my rapid reaction from the game last night.GREATTodd Gurley was great, there is...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Clemson PREDICTION Memorial Stadium is going to be rocking on Saturday night.  The crowd will go crazy as the players rub the rock and come roaring down the field while the band plays Tiger Rag.  It truly is one of the unique sites in college football and it will undoubtedly have the Clemson faithful going crazy...

ImYourHucklebery - Is UGA READY for Clemson? What can be said that has not already been said?  Now is the time of the quiet before the storm and what a brutal yet beautiful storm it could be to start the season.  This team and coaching staff has worked tirelessly through spring practice and now an especially physical fall camp to be ready...

ImYourHuckleberry - PHYSICAL Fall Camp Ending PERFECTLY! When you ask Mark Richt what was most important goal for this team to accomplish in this years fall camp was he immediately gives you the answer - “We need to come out of fall camp in midseason form”.  Well for a long time the injury list looked to be in midseason form.  Their were guys at a...

Grantham Getting CREATIVE with Leonard Floyd As everyone knows Josh Harvey-Clemmons has been suspended for the Clemson game.  Not only does that effect UGA's base defense when Harvey-Clemmons lines up at strong safety but it may impact the Dawgs even more when they are in the nickel and he moves down to play the star position.  Well in...

Can Tray Matthews Be EFFECTIVE v. Clemson? Chip Towers and the AJC are at it again.  As usual, Chip likes to beat down the Bulldogs as the season draws near.  Typically he has a lot of fodder for his columns but with the season drawing near and no UGA players getting in trouble off the field he has to find another way to beat down the...

ImYourHuckleberry - 5 Keys for a Georgia VICTORY! #1 - Weather the Storm - This Clemson crowd is going to be absolutely insane.  For those of you who were at the UGA v. South Carolina game last year you saw what an impact an electric environment can have on a college football game.  There is no doubt Clemson is going to come out...

This is for the LADIES (and the men who keep them HAPPY) Hello all you Lady Dawgs out there!
