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...

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...

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...

Nothing But LOVE for Aaron Murray Aaron Murray's performance against Auburn may have been the best of his career but unfortunately it came in a loss.  Murray was truly spectacular.  Passing for 415 yards and 2 TD's while also having two TD runs.  All of this taking place in a hostile environment against a defense that was getting...

SCREW You SEC Officiating!! This is it I am friggin done!  This crew came to this game with orders to set up an Iron Bowl matchup between a top 5 Auburn and Alabama.  We were done before this f'ing game even started because the officials were not going to let us have a chance.  The "leaping" call on Jonathan Taylor was...

Is the Alabama Dynasty BAD for College Football? Make no mistake about it Nick Saban has created a dynasty in Tuscaloosa.  Alabama has won the BCS Championship in the 2009, 2011 and 2012 seasons.  In 2009 the Tide went 13-0, in 2011 the tide were 12-1 and in 2012 the Tide were 12-1.  This year it appears inevitable that they will be 13-0 again...

Ranking the SEC Head Coaches #1 – Nick Saban – Alabama Crimson TideIs there any question about this?  Nick Saban is far and away the best coach in all of college football at the moment and one of the greatest of all time.  When you combine that with being one of the best recruiters in the country he...

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 - HUGE Recruiting Update! Below are some of my thoughts about where UGA stands with some of their top remaining targets and some more evaluation on these players senior seasons:David Sharpe – 6'6 295 – LT – It is looking more and more every day like the Bulldogs are quickly falling out of...

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...

This is exactly when the targeting rule will be changed. If it affects Bama! Not picking on Bama cause I realize they are the flagship in SEC football but let them lose a game because one of their players is unfairly called for a penalty and kicked out only to be returned but the 15 yard penalty stands and all hell will break loose on the NCAA. Imagine if LSU got an extra...

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...

Welcome HOME Kirby Smart? As I have said in other articles today one of the cardinal rules of Georgia football and football across the SEC is that you don't lose to Vanderbilt. But UGA did exactly that and that has led to a bunch of questions swirling around the program. On the to of that list is a look at the man who...

A Complete and Total EMBARRASSMENT! There is a lot to be upset about for UGA fans and supporters this weekend.  There are several rules for the University of Georgia football program and near the top of that list is you don't lose to Vanderbilt.  It is an embarrassment.  To drill the point in even further here is a list of the most...

Just HOW GOOD are Chubb & Michel? For the longest time UGA fans were searching for a running back that they could compare to  Herschel.  Any time a highly touted running back signed on the dotted line for the Bulldogs whether Rodney Hampton, Garrison Hearst, Kregg Lumpkin, Knowshon Moreno or Todd Gurley the comparisons to...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update! It has been very quiet on the UGA recruiting front since the monster game v. LSU.  A lot of this is the result of the UGA class having so few numbers left available and many of the targets left on their board at least six weeks or more away from making a decision.  Behind the scenes the Bulldogs...

ImYourHuckleberry - PREDICTIONS for HUGE Weekend of SEC Games! Finally, college football is really heating up over these last couple weeks with a bunch of great matchups across the country and especially in the Southeast.  This Saturday is going to be one of those days where you just sit down in front of the TV and tell your wife to grab you a cold beer and...

LESS of a ROTATION at Right Tackle I was finally able to sit down and re-watch the Missouri game without getting so disgusted that I had to turn the TV off.  When I re-watched the game I found myself spending a majority of the time when UGA had the ball focusing on the right tackle position.  As has been the case for most of the...

ImYourHuckleberry - 2014 RECRUITING Class a GAMECHANGER for Dawgs Defense? The Bulldogs have a lot of young talent on defense this year and a lot of freshmen that are playing immediately.  There are areas of strength on this defense and there are certainly areas of weakness.  The question is whether or not UGA is recruiting correctly in the Class of 2014 to help improve...

Happy Homecoming: How Did You Become A Niner? Given the spirit of Charlotte's first Homecoming for football tomorrow, I figured I'd reminisce on how and why I became a Niner. I'll open this up now and say that I'm really curious of how you became a Niner…so please write in the comments below!Growing up in Upstate New...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Mizzou - PREDICTION What a difficult game to predict.  If UGA was a healthy football team coming into this game I would have no problem picking the Bulldogs and picking them by a significant amount.  But that is not the case heading into this game against the Tigers.  The Tigers are a solid 5-0 and ranked #5 in the...

Ray Drew & The Crock-Pot Plan! Coming out of Thomas County Central HS Ray Drew was ranked as one of the top prospects in the state of Georgia and in the entire country.  At 6'5 250 pounds he was a 5-Star freak athlete that looked perfect to play the role of OLB in Todd Grantham's system.  As a true freshmen he saw some playing...

And Just Like That, A LEADER Has Emerged I have to be honest for a second. I wasn't at the game because it was daughters second birthday. Worst yet….I turned the game off in frustration after Charlotte got a safety with 4 minutes left down by 12. I didn't even know the Niners won until my friends who...

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...

NinerNation - EVALUATING Charlotte 2014 Recruiting Class! With Charlotte moving to the FBS level and joining Conference USA the 49ers recruiting class this season will be very important to the future of the program.  It is a big step up from playing programs like Campbell and Chowan to playing programs like Lousiana Tech, North Texas and a once proud...

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...

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 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 - MONSTER Recruiting Update! Numbers are beginning to get very tight in the Class of 2014 for the Bulldogs and it will be interesting to see how this plays out over the next four to five months as UGA attempts to close out the class with a bang.  The Bulldogs class currently stands at 17 players that include:  1 QB, 2 RB, 2...

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 - 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...

REGRETS from Henry & Kamara? I am not one to live in the past but when I got an e-mail from a friend of mine that knows all of the ins-and-outs of the Alabama football program I thought this was something I would share with the Bulldog nation.  It is about Derrick Henry, Alvin Kamara, Tyren Jones and their futures with...

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...

The FUTURE of Left Tackle at UGA Over the last six seasons I would argue the biggest hole on the UGA football team has been the lack of a pure left tackle to protect the quarterbacks blind side.  In my opinion the last time UGA had that player was in 2007 when true freshmen Trinton Sturdivant wowed everyone and was truly a...

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...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - SEC Week 3 Power Rankings #1 - Alabama - Alabama has holes on defense in the secondary and struggles to get pressure on the QB but offensively they are a juggernaut.  The offensive line took great strides between the Virginia Tech game and the A& game.#2 - LSU - The LSU defense...

PERFECT Test for UGA Defense! This Saturday the North Texas Mean Green (named after Mean Joe Green) will be coming to Athens to face the Georgia Bulldogs coming off a bye week after two brutal weeks to start the season.  The defense has now had two extra weeks of practice and the coaches have really had some time...

NONSENSE, I Have Not Yet Begun to DEFILE Myself! In this world we live in where bending rules, breaking rules and blatant cheating are running rampant through all levels of sports whether it be baseball, NASCAR or college football it is a good time to be fan of the Georgia Bulldogs.  I am not saying that UGA is 100% clean because that would be...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Unless you have been living under a rock for the last couple months you know where UGA's recruiting class stands.  There are probably 4-5 spots left in this class and the Bulldogs would ideally like to sign a combination of David Sharpe (5* LT), Lorenzo Carter (5* OLB), Keyon Brown (4* OLB),...

An IMPOSSIBLE Decision! I can't wait for the game this weekend between Alabama and Texas A&M. It is probably the most excited I have been to watch a regular season college football game ever that does not involve Georgia. Being a UGA fan and a fan of college football in general I am sure that everyone across the SEC...

Will anyone BEAT the Niners? Judging by how we reacted to our previous two opponents, it is not totally crazy to say that Charlotte could actually go undefeated in their inaugural season. We have remained disciplined, extremely mature, well coached and most of all remained healthy. But, things can change quickly. Our...

We have remained disciplined, extremely mature, well coached and most of all remained healthy. But, things can change quickly. Our...

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...

NCAA Violations RAMPANT in the SEC? This offseason there were rumors of Johnny Manziel taking cash to sign autographs on multiple occasions, however it could not be proven so Manziel only received a 1/2 game suspension for violating the “spirit” of the rule.  Then over the weekend the Oklahoma State story broke from Sports...

ImYourHuckleberry – HUGE SEC Recruiting Battles! There are a lot of schools throughout the SEC That already have an impressive list of players committed to their schools for the Class of 2014.  Some classes appear to be really close to full including Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky and Tennessee while other schools like Texas A&M, LSU and Florida...

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...

SEC Power Rankings #1 – Alabama – The two-time defending National Champions showed they still have some work to do in their only game of the season thus far against Virginia Tech but until they are knocked off they won't move from this rank regardless of how good anyone else looks.  In the words of...

Dawgs Still Have to EARN RESPECT! It is great to be a Georgia Bulldog after a victory like the one on Saturday evening.  That was one of the most emotional up and down games I have been a part of in 30 years of watching Georgia football.  Once we built a 17-3 lead I thought we might blow their doors off, then when the game was...

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...

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...

BEST Defense in the SEC? Damn it is good to start the football season and man it was fun to watch that defense this weekend.  Even though we were without two defensive starters Morrison and Purifoy our defense was completely dominant.  Our pass rush, secondary and run defense - all three facets were strong this weekend...

FINALLY We Have an IDENTITY!! I am very excited about the new identity at Arkansas.  As far as I am concerned it is the first time that we have had an identity since the Houston Nutt golden days with McFadden and Felix Jones.  I know that some people will disagree with me that liked the Petrino days before the scandal but I...

BEST Offense UGA Will Face ALL Season? I went back last night and watched the UGA v. Clemson game as difficult as it was to watch and I was left truly blown away by just how good the Clemson offense was despite playing behind what I would call an average offensive line.  Tahj Boyd is the best QB the Bulldogs will face all season...

One for the Books: Charlotte Wins Big! For the first football game in Niner history, you could say to expect the unexpected, but nobody really knew what to expect. Though I can promise you that a lot of fans expected to win, nobody really expected to win like they did and give the fans, who were excellent, a lot to cheer...

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...

First TEST for New Offensive Line I think we all know that the Alabama offensive line last year was dominant.  Not only were they dominant compared to everyone in the country, they were dominant compared to nearly everyone in history.  They were huge, strong, experienced and had excellent leadership.  They were so good that they...

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...

Niners Roster Rich With Charlotte Talent When you follow football as much as I do, you know it is a big deal to keep the local kids. Being a big admirer of the SEC, I know that each respective school makes it a point to “win their state” by preventing kids from going elsewhere. Although those battles...

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 NOT Charlotte’s First Ever Football Game In 1946  a small start-up school had aspirations to play football. That school was “Charlotte”, although not the Charlotte we know and love today. It wasn't even Charlotte College or UNCC. Then it was called Center Charlotte of the University of North Carolina...

Is Lorenzo Carter OVERHYPED? On Saturday I am sure a great number of people watched the Norcross v. Booker T. Washington game. If you watched you saw just how ridiculously good Booker T. Washington is.  There is a reason they are viewed by many to be the best HS football team in the nation.  But now onto the man of the hour...

This is for the LADIES (and the men who keep them HAPPY) Hello all you Lady Dawgs out there! The 2013 Football season is here… with only a couple more weeks till the Big Day,  there is no time like the present to begin prepping your outfits for GAME DAY!I will be the first one to admit that I love to look cute and fashionable on Game Day....

My, Look How Far We’ve Come If you are anything like me, you have spent some time as an undergrad waiting for Niner basketball season to start since there was basically nothing for us to cheer about in the fall (Don't get me wrong, I love our soccer team, but it's different). You spent time...

Welcome to Fanternity, Niners! So here it is, a week before our inaugural football season and with all the buzz in the air I thought it would be a great introduction to our new social network for sports fans. People may ask “why would I care if I have Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn and Google+”? It's really quite simple. We are...

C’MON Man – UGA v. Clemson Prediction Huck is usually the man when it comes to predictions but I figured that I would take my shot at a prediction for the UGA v. Clemson game. I have to go ahead and make my prediction now because I am going to be on a mission trip with my church to Ecuador for the next 7 days arriving back in Atlanta...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Clemson Coaching Matchup As you have seen in the other breakdowns this is a very close matchup in terms of the teams strengths and weaknesses.  It could very well come down to coaching, therefore the coaching aspect of the game must be broken down.Head Coach – Mark Richt v. Dabo Swinney – Mark Richt has guided the...

ImYourHuckleberry - Clemson Receivers v. UGA Secondary Both teams in this matchup have great Quarterbacks.  QB's that are capable of making every throw in the book.  It is up to the receivers to make the important catches and take advantage of run after catch situations.  Even more importantly, it will be important for the defensive backs to make...

ImYourHuckleberry - Clemson Offensive Line v. UGA Front 7 In college football the battle at the line of scrimmage often goes a long way to determining who wins the game.  That importance is even magnified early in the season when an offense is trying to get into a rhythm.  With that said, lets take a look at the matchup between the Clemson offensive...

ImYourHuckleberry - Shattle Fenteng PREDICTION As you have certainly heard UGA put another offer out there to 6'2 200 CB/S – Shattle Fenteng.  Fenteng was a standout player at Grayson HS in Georgia and had a quite a few scholarship offers from major schools coming out of HS but was unable to qualify due to academic issues.  Therefore he was...

Want to Get FIRED UP? Clemson Fans Talking TRASH! This is such a fun time of year!  Everyone is fired up about their team and there are probably 30 teams in the country that think if all the cards fall right they will be playing in Pasadena for the National Championship.  What makes it especially fun this year is UGA starting out against...

Also we want to send a big thank you to everyone who attended Bulldogs After Business Hours events in both Raleigh and Charlotte. You have done an amazing job and we are getting...

Manziel & A.J. Green - Will NCAA Be Hypocritical Again? I know everyone out there is putting their two cents in on Johnny Manziel and everything he has done this offseason but I have purposely been trying to avoid it at all costs.  I have looked at most of it as a kid being a 20-year old and not being ready for the spotlight and still thinking he...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update! Shattle Fenteng – 6'2 200 CB – This is a big offer that went out for the Bulldogs and one that we have been expecting for quite some time.  Fenteng is a 6'2 200 pound CB that caught the Bulldogs eye when they were scouting his teammate at Hutchinson C.C. in Kansas.  Fenteng is a...

Dawgs NEW LOCKDOWN Corner For his entire football career Shaq Wiggins has been underestimated.  He is generously listed at 5'10 but his weight is probably close to right at 165 pounds. He is not going to wow you in the forty and if you asked him how fast he is he would probably say, "As fast as I need to be".  At the same...

UGA Has a GOOD Problem There are a lot of things to feel really good about with this UGA football team heading into the 2013 Season.  We have a proven QB, incredible Running Backs, game changing Wide Receivers, great pass rushers, a lockdown Cornerback and a beast Free Safety.  But one area through the offseason and...

ESPN Analyst RAVES About Several Dawg Recruits Over the weekend, ESPN continued to evaluate the Opening.  They did several “superlative” lists and there were several UGA recruits/commit that made the final list.  The most surprising omission was Nick Chubb, but the more I thought about it, it does not surprise.  Playing two-hand touch...

A MUST Watch for Every UGA Fan & RECRUIT! There have been a lot of great players to come through the University of Georgia.  Some more gifted than others, some with better work ethics and some with more mental toughness.  But one player that encompassed all of these traits and could truly be my favorite Georgia Bulldog I ever saw play in...

ImYourHuckleberry – HUGE Recruiting Update Kendall Baker – 6'6 290 – DL/OTKendall Baker will be announcing his college decision tonight with the main contenders still appearing to be UGA and Auburn.  As long as he is still a “take” by UGA we don't foresee him playing is college football anywhere but UGA.  The most...

Preseason Top 20 #1 – Alabama Crimson Tide – They are the 2-Time Defending Champs, can't put anyone else there.#2 – Oregon Ducks – I have a feeling this might be their most talented offense yet.#3 – Georgia Bulldogs – Powerful offense should put up enough points for young defense to get feet on the...

Dawg RECRUITS Show Out at The Opening! Since Nike began the SPARQ Testing and ESPN began broadcasting The Opening on Live TV this is one of my favorite recruiting events to watch.  No doubt there are other great recruiting events across the country such as the Rivals 5-Star Challenge and some of the 247 Camps but unless you subscribe...

ImYourHuckleberry - Kendall Baker PREDICTION There is one announcement that has been made regarding Kendall Baker – He will be making his commitment to where he will be playing college football for the next four years on Wednesday, January 3rd at approximately 6:45 PM.  At 6'6 290 pounds, Baker already has the look of a grown man...

ImYourHuckleberry - MONSTER Recruiting Update! D.J. Smith – CB/S – 6'0 180The stud defensive back from Walton will be in Athens for a visit this weekend where he will have the opportunity to get an up close and personal look at UGA.  He hasn't been on the campus very often and there is the question of whether or not he...

ImYourHuckleberry - Top 10 BREAKOUT Players - #4 Chris Conley - 6'3 205 - WRI am going to come out and say it, Chris Conley is my favorite player on this team.  Not only is a hell of a football player but he is also a smart young man with his head on straight that puts the team first and gives it his all on and off the field.  That is...

ImYourHuckleberry – Top 10 BREAKOUT Players - #7 Justin Scott-Wesley – WR – 5'11 206When the Dawgs signed Scott-Wesley two years ago everyone in the state of Georgia had heard about this kid.  However, it was not for football – it was for track.  Scott-Wesley was dominating track and field in the 100 and 200 meters blowing away the...

SEC Needs to Make a CHANGE!! The SEC is the most dominant football conference in the country PERIOD.  It will take something truly extraordinary for a team outside the SEC to win a BCS National Championship in the coming years, the disparity is that great in my opinion.  I would liken it to something like the worst NFL team...

Dawg RUN Defense Will Be BETTER! I am someone who appreciates almost all sports but this is a point in time where I start dying for some football.  I don't care if it is NFL Pre-Season, Training Camp, fall practice or watching games from last year.  So yesterday as I was having one of my football withdraw days I decided to kick...

Oh Urban, What Standards You Set I can't even watch College Football Live on ESPN anymore or basically any ESPN college football programming because it is a love fest for Nick Saban and even worse Urban Meyer.  In my opinion I can stand listening to Nick Saban because you can't hate him you can only be jealous of his success....

An INSTANT Commit? The Georgia Bulldogs have great history and a great bond with Tucker HS.  UGA standouts Asher Allen and Thomas Brown are two of the most notable players to come from Tucker to play football for the Dawgs.  Also you can't forget about Patrick Pass who may not have lived up to expectations at UGA...

Dawgs OFFER 6’7 320 14-Year Old A name that you need to get to know because you will be hearing it a lot over the next couple years in recruiting circles is Ben Cleveland.  Cleveland is from Toccoa, GA and plays offensive tackle for Stephens County.  While it isn't entirely rare to see a HS freshmen start along the offensive...

Lemay UNHAPPY at UGA? I live in Matthews, NC and I have followed the Lemay family quite closely as the three boys are very talented football players.  As a matter of fact, I was there in person when Uriah Lemay held his announced his commitment.  I wasn't surprised to see him commit to UGA given the fact his brother...

Football Facility UPGRADES There has been a lot of talk around the football program of upgrades that need to be made to the facilities.  When I am around people I hear everything suggested from adding 20,000 more seats (including different ideas on how to do that), to a wireless network for the stadium so you can use your...

Most INTIMDATING Stadium in SEC This is something I have put some thought into because I always see rankings of the SEC Stadiums.  However, a lot of time they don't explain their criteria and mine are simple.  I have actually been to every stadium in the SEC (including Mizzou and Texas A&M) and I wanted to share my opinion on...

Gamecocks BETTER Than Last Year This is one of the topics I am most intrigued by and I had the opportunity to ask my South Carolina insider a few question about the Gamecocks aimed at getting the answer of to the question of - Will the Gamecocks be better than last year?1) How is the South Carolina QB situation...

UGA's Best Sport?

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Korie Rogers – Certainly overshadowed by the breaking news regarding Josh Harvey-Clemmons suspension is the fact that 4-Star linebacker from Buford, GA committed to the Clemson Tigers yesterday.  This is quite surprising that he pulled the trigger so quickly on the Tigers, but...

Another wake up call JHC's latest headline should install even more awareness and seriousness into the team about being careful. I really thought we would get through the entire offseason clean of any suspensions simpy based off of what happened last year. Just last March, the 17th. I started a discussion on here...

Breaking BAMA! Alabama is a juggernaut.  There is no other way to put it right now.  They have the best head coach in college football, the best Strength & Conditioning program and the best recruiting.  I know there are teams that will beat the Tide every once in a while but like Texas A&M last season or LSU...

Good, Bad or INEVITABLE The major conversation at the SEC Meetings in Destin, FL will be regarding the possible move from an 8 game SEC schedule to a 9 game SEC schedule.  It is something that has been speculated about since the SEC decided on expansion with Missouri and Texas A&M.  There is some good, some bad that...

Questions SURROUND Clemson I had the opportunity this weekend to speak with a friend of mine who is a diehard Clemson fan and follows every aspect of the football program.  I caught up with him this weekend and asked him his thoughts on Spring Practice and this is what he had to say:(1) What are your general...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Part I It has long been said that imitation is the highest form of flattery.  There is no question that at this moment Alabama is the best program in all of college football and UGA is trying to follow the lead of the Tide.  I know that some UGA fans won't like that and will say the reason Alabama does...

Seriously, WHY Ole Miss? So I know this is a question that has been posed many times but I have to ask it again in light of recent events.  To preface what I am about to say, I have a sister who goes to Ole Miss and I have visited and it is a beautiful campus with great people.  But what I can't comprehend is how Ole...

Different Approaches, Different Results in Recruiting The recruiting world in college athletics is a big business.  It has become the equivalent to the NFL Draft in amateur sports.  Take a moment and look at companies like Scout.com, Rivals.com and 247Sports.com whose primary source of traffic is to follow recruiting.  Obviously over recent years...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Jeb Blazevich - TE - 6'5 240 - Blazevich is rumored to have trimmed his list down to two primary schools we are hearing.  I am not entirely sure of who the two schools are but from what I have read about him it appears that Clemson, Georgia and Notre Dame are his favorites.  If I were to take a...

Should UGA Switch to Oregon Style Offense? This season I think we are going to see a huge change in the way that UGA runs their offense.  This team has so many proven weapons on the offensive side of the ball including Chris Conley, Malcolm Mitchell, Michael Bennett, Rontavious Wooten, Arthur Lynch, Jay Rome, Todd Gurley and Keith...

Freshmen SHOW OUT on Defense Nothing like the first scrimmage of spring practice when you are going through football withdrawal and you would give anything to see some the boys put on the red and black.  Unfortunately with spring practice you only get to see the final scrimmage on G-Day but if this first scrimmage is any...

Race BETWEEN Chubb and Choice It has been well reported that the Dawgs are making running back a priority in the 2014 Recruiting Class.  They definitely want to sign a minimum of two running backs but could go up to three if the combination was right.  As of this moment they already have one commit from Stanley Williams...

The NEXT Jadeveon Clowney? During his senior season at South Pointe HS in Rock Hill, SC Jadeveon Clowney was a lanky 6'6 235 pound defensive end known for his explosivenes and freakish athleticism.  He also had the ideal frame to add weight up to around 275 pounds and not lose any of his explosiveness.  Three short years...

Dawgs and Bama on a COLLISION Course in 2013! If the Dawg stay healthy through spring and fall practice they will likely be the favorites to win the SEC East for a third straight year in what should be a highly contested division race between the Gamecocks, Gators and Dawgs.  South Carolina undoubtedly has the easiest SEC schedule, avoiding...

Player's Did Their Part so Athletic Department PLEASE Don't Be Stupid!! In something that I actually find pretty shocking it appears that the players listened to the coaches over spring break and did not do anything stupid and get in to trouble.  All I can say is thank goodness!!  I think this week was my biggest week of worry for the entire offseason for...

ImYourHuckleberry - 5 Predictions for Spring Practice (1) Jonathan Taylor EMERGES - Behind the scenes in Athens there was a lot of talk about Taylor last year when he was playing on the scout team.  He is a legit 6'4 335 pounds and is incredibly thickly built  for a guy that is only 19 years old.  He has the ideal thick lower body,...

ImYourHuckleberry - Dawgs DRAFT Status AFTER Combine! (1) Jarvis Jones - H [6'2 3/8] W [245] - Heading into the NFL Combine there was some negative attention swirling around Jarvis Jones because NFL teams are rumored to be worried about his spinal stenosis and lack of "ideal" size.  While these are concerns, any NFL GM or scout should just turn on...

How HARD Do You Push GURSHALL? Heading into spring practice the Dawgs have depth everywhere on the offensive side of the ball except at tailback.  UGA only has two scholarship tailbacks, Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall.  So that leaves the question how hard do you push Marshall and Gurley during spring practice?  My answer is...

IDEAL Post-Spring DEPTH CHART – Offense! Spring practice keeps getting closer and closer and in a time when you are going through football withdrawal it couldn't come at a better time.  What has me most excited for Spring Practice this year is to see how UGA decides to use all of the playmakers on the offensive side of the ball.  How...

Dawgs Making Another MISTAKE in Recruiting? Junior Day this past Saturday for the Dawgs was a great event.  They were able to get a number of the state's top players to come to Athens and evaluate the talent and make some important offers.  While the Bulldogs did extend several offers over the weekend there was one glaring mistake that the...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #4 - Josh Harvey-Clemons - ATH - 6'5 220 Spring camp for Harvey-Clemons is very important because he is one of the best athletes on the UGA football team if not the best.  You don't find too many people at 6'5 220 pounds with his combination of speed, strength, agility, and length.  Depending on where he fills out in terms of weight he...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #5 - Sheldon Dawson - CB - 5'11 185 We have reached the Top 5!  These are the players that the Dawgs are relying on to have an excellent spring camp to prove that they are ready to be starters in the fall.  So without wasthing any more time lets get into the Top 5:Sheldon Dawson is a special talent in the mold of Brandon...

Should Aaron Murray use his legs more? Aaron Murray should use his legs more.  No, he doesn't need to take hits like he took his freshman and sophomore season because he'll RG3 himself to the bench if he's not careful. It you will take a look at this video though, around the...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #8 - Justin Scott-Wesley - WR - 5'11 217 When Justin Scott-Wesley decided to sign with the Georgia Bulldogs there was one thing that was immediately known among the Bulldog Nation - that kid can flat out fly.  We certainly weren't wrong about that.  In his time in Athens he has been a star on the track in the 60-meter and 100-meter dash...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #12 - Ryne Rankin - ILB - 6'1 230 Ryne Rankin joins Reggie Carter as the ILB's that were able to qualify and enroll early.  I have made no secret of the fact that I am a huge fan of Ryne Rankin. He is a flat out football player.  If you have any questions about that go on YouTube and watch the first 60 seconds of his film - you...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #14 - Reggie Carter - ILB - 6'1 225 The Dawgs lost Mike Gilliard, Christian Robinson, and Alec Ogletree this offseason.  That is a lot of talent and experience to try to replace.  One of the players that will be depended upon to contribute is true freshmen Reggie Carter.As a junior, Carter was one of the highest rated...

Have we turned the table on Florida, but what about USC? For years, Florida has dominated Georgia on the football field, but the last two years have proved that we can hold out own with the mighty gators.  In previous years (before the two past years), I believe there was a psychological effect regarding our players didn't believe they could beat...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #16 - John Atkins - DE - 6'4 305 In HS, Atkins was a late bloomer.  His body continued to develop and his natural strength began to shine through making him one of the highest recruited players at the end of his senior season.  He has a very powerful base and understands how to play with leverage which led to a debate among...

Dawgs Offer NEW Linebacker That Will Make You Say - REUBEN WHO??? I just got word that the Dawgs have offered another middle linebacker for the class of 2013.  His name is Myles Jack.  I admit I had never heard the name until about 7:00PM tonight when I got word that the Dawgs had offered him to play middle linebacker.  The reason...

ImYourHuckleberry - If Signing Day Was TODAY - Predictions!! As of this moment I believe the following players will Commit to the "G"!   Montravius Adams - Some say Clemson is the leader.  Some say Georgia is the leader.  However, nobody...

ImYourHuckleberry - Davin Bellamy Pre-Visit PREDICTION Bellamy was one of my favorite defensive players to watch in the state this season.  At 6'5 240 he has the ideal size for the 3-4 outside linebacker in Todd Grantham's system.  As a matter of fact I believe he is the prototype of want Grantham prefers....

ImYourHuckleberry - Alvin Kamara Pre-Vist PREDICTION I had seen Alvin Kamara play a couple games in his junior season and was impressed with his ability by I still had questions about his ability to be an elite SEC Tailback.  Then, I had the privilege of watching him on his run to a State Championship where he was an...

The FOCUS Is ALL On Tunsil The weekend of January 25th when the Bulldogs have Montravius Adams, Reuben Foster, and Alvin Kamara is an important weekend.  However, I argue that this weekend is even bigger for the Dawgs.  Laremy Tunsil will be taking his official visit to UGA and it is clear that the Dawgs are going...

BREAKOUT 2nd Year Players! The 2012 Recruiting Class saw several members make a huge IMPACT on the field.  Todd Gurley had 222 carries for 1385 yards and 17 TDs.  Keith Marshall had 117 carries for 759 yards and 8 TDs.  Jordan Jenkins had 31 tackles and 5 sacks.  John Theus emerged as a starter from Day 1 and was a...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Part 2 On December 18th after watching a lot of Georgia HS football this year I made a list of my Top 10 prospects from the state of Georgia for 2014.  After several days of practice at the Junior Bowl and facing off against each other there was certainly a shake up in the rankings.  If you want to see...

SEC Champ game proves to be "Game of the year". Plus BCSNC analysis Analysis- I'll go ahead and cut to the chase. The 2013 BCS Championship game was terrible. Despite having a competetive look to most analysts and college football associates, it couldn't have been more of the opposite. From the very get go, Bama did what Bama wanted. The offense executed a...

ImYourHuckleberry - Bowl Predictions Guaranteed to LOSE You Money NC State v. Vanderbilt - The ACC may be just as bad of a football conference as the Big East.  Vanderbilt has been on a roll to end this season and I see them fired up for this game.  NC State players are auditioning for a new coach.  Vandy rolls, 31 - 13. Southern...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Nebraska Prediction It is time for one last UGA football game.  The last time we will see our Dawgs hitting another team in the mouth for nearly 9 months.  It is more than likely the last time we will see Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree.  Definitely the last time we will see Christian Robinson, Mike Gilliard, John...

Urban Meyer STILL MAD at Mark Richt Remember the infamous moment when UGA's entire football team ran out on the field to celebrate Knowson Moreno's opening TD against the Gators?  I'm sure you do and one thing is for certain, Urban Meyer does as well.  In messaging back and forth with a 2014 prospect from the state of Georgia,...

Dawgs 2012 Recruiting Class EVEN BETTER Off the Field! The Dawgs brought in a great recruiting class last season.  The 2012 class was a major reason why the Bulldogs were able to reach the SEC Championship and give Alabama hell for 60 minutes.  However, on the field is not the only place this freshmen class succeeded: The freshmen class had...

CONCERNS About Montravius Adams? Montravius Adams has made quite the name for himself the last two years at Dooly County.  So much so that he has become ranked the top defensive tackle in the country by every major recruiting service for the Class of 2013.  With that comes very high expectations and if it was your first time...

Conference Expansion... I know its kind of off topic with Bowls and Signing Day on the horizon, but bare with me... Why don't they just get conference expansion over with... draw a big plus sign over the US... Northeast, Southeast, Southwest & Northwest conferences. Split them into 2, or even 4 divisions. With 4...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting Mailbag Good day everyone.  It is a rough time of the year right now without SEC football on Saturdays but at least the guys are back at practice and doing some serious work.  From what I am hearing out of Athens it was a real intense practice in full pads yesterday.  I think the coaches are trying to...

Early Enrollees to DOMINATE Secondary Depth Chart We all know that UGA will be losing 4 senior defensive backs to graduation and the NFL after the Capital One Bowl.  They aren't just any 4 seniors, they are guys who started a ton of games for the Dawgs and were very reliable and had developed a great chemistry.  With those guys moving on the...

Bobo and Grantham FIGHTING Over Mitchell Again! There is no question that Malcom Mitchell is one of the best athletes on the Georgia football team.  He spent the first four games of the season at cornerback and looked like a natural at the position.  He was strong enough to play bump and run coverage against receivers.  He was quick enough to...

Brice Ramsey's UNLIMITED Potential - A MUST READ!! I had the opportunity to exchange several e-mail's with a colleague of mine that has seen Brice Ramsey up close and personal at Camden County over the last two seasons.  When he talks about Brice Ramsey and the things he has done on the football field you can feel the excitement jumping off the...

ImYourHuckleberry - MONSTER Recruiting Mailbag Update CMiddleton10742 - Heard chances are going up with Matthew Thomas.  Do you think we can get him? Chances are certainly going up with Thomas but I am not quite sold on the Dawgs chances at this moment.  I know that...

Tramel Terry STARS At Shrine Bowl Practice Yesterday was the first day of practice for the annual Shrine Bowl.  The Shrine Bowl is a yearly game held between North Carolina and South Carolina HS football All-Stars.  Last year the star of the game was UGA's own Todd Gurley.  Gurley was clearly the best player in practices last year and...

FINDING a Position for Josh Harvey-Clemons Heading into the 2013 season the Bulldogs will likely be losing a minimum of 10 players that received signifcant playing time on defense.  The hardest hit positions are inside linebacker and safety where the Dawgs will need to develop new impact players.  One of the candidates to fill in at one...

TOP 5 Recruits Left on UGA Big Board! (1) Laremy Tunsil - Last week I wrote about Laremy Tunsil and how impressed I was with him after having seen film from his senior season.  The more I have watched the more impressed I have become.  Tunsil is easily 6'6 315 and looks well ahead of where John Theus was at the same...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update! It was Gala Weekend in Athens which is always a big recruiting weekend for the Dawgs.  This season the Gala was a bit different than normal because there were very few uncommited prospects at the event because UGA already has so many players committed.  However it is a very important weekend for...

Any Questions About Aaron Murray are ALL GONE! Last night was one of the best nights of the year for the Bulldogs.  All of the players get their tuxes and find a date and head to the annual Senior Gala.  It is a time to celebrate and the bulldogs certainly had a lot to celebrate.  Regardless of what anyone says, 11-2 and SEC East Champions...

Multi-Year CONTRACT for Bobo After the 2011 season Bulldog fans were worried about Todd Grantham getting attention from other schools to be a college head coach or the NFL coming calling with a defensive coordinator job.  Greg McGarity and UGA acted quickly and locked Grantham up with a 3-year contract which is something...

Does UGA Really WANT Reuben Foster? I am shocked!  Auburn made a responsible decision and decided that they needed to rid themselves of the walking NCAA violation, Trooper Taylor.  In a not surprising decision, Reuben Foster quickly decommitted from Auburn after Trooper was given his walking papers.  Now that Foster is back on the...

Dawgs BACKUP Plan for Laremy Tunsil? The Bulldogs appear to be starting to work hard on a backup plan for Laremy Tunsil.  This is no surprise after what happened last year when the Dawgs were recruiting Avery Young very hard and he chose Auburn at the last minute and the Dawgs did not have a backup.  The Dawgs backup plan this year...

Dawgs Next GREAT Middle Linebacker The Dawgs have 4 Middle Linebackers committed in the class of 2013.  According the 247Sports Composite Ranking - Tim Kimbrough is No. 6, Johnny O'Neal is No. 7, Ryne Rankin is No. 23, and Reggie Carter is No. 30.  While I think they are all very solid football players there is one that stands...

GREAT News for Recruiting! This weekends game against Alabama was a huge recruiting opportunity for the Dawgs.  If they could have beaten Alabama they would have proved they were the class of the SEC and had the opportunity to play for a National Championship.  That is something schools like Alabama, Auburn, Florida, and...

Shaq Wiggins to A&M? In a bit of a surprising development JaQuay Williams has decided to attend Texas A&M and play college football their instead of in Athens.  Many thought that Williams would either choose UGA or South Carolina (who he visited this weekend).  However, late last night he made an announcement that...

Dawgs EARNED Something SPECIAL The ongoing saying in sports and in life is that "Respect is NOT Given, Respect is EARNED".  On Saturday in Atlanta the Bulldogs earned the respect of the SEC and the nation.  Make no mistake about it - Alabama is one hell of a football team.  They have assembled the best offensive line I have...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update! Wow!! What a game!  I believe that was the most exciting UGA football game I have been to in 30 years.  It was truly incredible.  The momentum swings were huge and the Dawgs found a way to respond to adversity every time they were challenged.  If only there were 15 more seconds on the clock the...

ImYourHuckleberry - SEC Championship Prediction I have never felt this much anticipation and excitement in the Bulldog Nation.  Walking around downtown Charlotte, NC this afternoon wearing my UGA shirt I had a few "Go Dawgs" shouted my way.  I had one ACC Championship representative tell me that she is rooting for the Dawgs to take down...

STATEMENT Time for Richt & UGA Saying that this is a huge game for the University of Georgia football program might be an understatement.  This is the biggest stage the Dawgs have been on since 1982.  If they win this game win this game they go to the National Championship game for the first time since they played Penn State...

Why Would ANYONE Want the Auburn Job? Greg Doyel of CBSSports.com wrote an excellent article about the Auburn job and why anyone would be a fool to take the job.  I started reading this article thinking it was going to be about the NCAA investigation and general lack of talent on the Auburn roster.  However, Doyel took it a...

If You Want to See FUTURE Dawg Stars.. On Monday, CSS announced that they would be showing the the Camden County v.

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update The Math: This is going to get a little bit complicated but I will try to explain the numbers situation with the 2013 Recruiting Class so here we go.  In the 2012 Recruiting Class UGA had 17 players sign their LOI and enroll at UGA.  They counted 3 early enrollees...

Jaquay Williams Commit PREDICTION JaQuay Williams has officially de-committed from Auburn.  He is the first recruit to pull the trigger after the entire Auburn coaching staff was dismissed yesterday.  It now appears that his choice will come down to UGA or Texas A&M.  I'll outline what each school offers Williams below:

Reuben Foster & Tray Matthew's HS Careers END On Same Night This was a weekend of upsets across the HS football landscape and many involved top UGA prospects.  The two biggest UGA targets to see their HS careers come to an end were best friends Reuben Foster and Tray Matthews.  Reuben Foster and Auburn HS lost to Opelika 8-7.  Foster scored the only TD...

Devondre Seymour DOMINATES Robert Nkiemdiche In a big upset in Georgia HS Football, North Gwinnett convincingly defeated Grayson.  Grayson has been billed all season long as one of the best HS football teams in the entire country.  They are lead by the #1 Overall Player in the Nation according to the major recruiting services,...

Why Murray Should WIN Heisman Over Manziel This is no knock on "Johnny Football", he is a hell of a football player.  However, no freshmen should win the Heisman unless it was extraordinary circumstances.  For example, if the Aggies were undefeated and going to the BCS Title game and Manziel had put up the same numbers I would probably...

Coaching Rumors Gone WILD! Tennessee's dismissal of Derek Dooley has set the SEC coaching carousel into high speed.  Auburn fans are angry that they haven't already fired Chizik because Tennessee is getting a head start on them and may already have a deal in place with the coach that they really want.  Arkansas and...

Reuben Foster ALL About Auburn FAMILY Rivals.com has a free video posted of an interview with Reuben Foster after his team won on a last second two-point conversion of McGill Toolen who was one of the best teams in the state.  The video itself may make UGA fans a little bit nauseous because you see Trooper Taylor jumping up...

ESPN & Coaches Poll DISRESPECT Dawgs Why does this always happen?  I don't quite understand it.  Last week, UGA was #4 in the Coaches Poll and Alabama was #5.  UGA defeated Georgia Southern who was 8-2 on the season and co-champions of the Southern Conference.  Alabama played Western Carolina, also from the Southern Conference that...

State of Georgia Loaded at Key Position Next Year I have lived in Georgia and have worked for the Georgia High School Association for almost 35 years.  In all that time I have been lucky enough to travel across the state and go to a lot of football games and make some close friends at a lot of schools.  I have...

UGA Quarterback Situation Right now UGA is the beneficiary of having one of the top quarterbacks in the country on the roster.  Aaron Murray has his faults, ups and downs, but at the end of the day he is an excellent quarterback.  Many UGA fans like to criticize him but at the same time complain about UGA's inability to...

My God a HIGH SCHOOL Freshmen! There is a 6'4 256 pound defensive tackle playing high school football right now.  That may seem pretty average for a high school defensive tackle but when you hear that he is a 14-year old high school freshmen that makes it a little out of the ordinary.  Then, take into account that he is...

Will Auburn KEEP Trooper Taylor? There are a lot of big questions still out there in the recruiting world.  There will most likely be 4 new coaches in the SEC, Chip Kelly from Oregon is rumored to be heading to the NFL, and Lane Kiffin might be on a bit of a hot seat at Southern Cal.  However, no...

Biggest Game of Richt's Career? It drives me crazy when I listen to the post game radio show when Kevin Butler and Tony Shiavone constantly repeat that we can't look ahead.  I know the players and coaches can't look ahead but seriously, why not let the fans dream?  I have been doing a little bit of dreaming over these last...

834 Yards Passing in 1 Game!! In Charlotte, NC there was a high school football game last weekend between Davidson Day and Harrells Christian that ended with a ridiculous score of 100-84.  Let me repeat that again 100-84 in a high school football game.  In that game Davidson Day QB Will Grier a 2014 QB was 35-42 passing for...

These Dawgs a VERY Special TEAM! I am a straight shooter and call it like I see it when it comes to Georgia football.  That has gotten me into trouble from time-to-time with some of my readers but it's the only way I know how to be.  I was very critical of the team (players and coaches) after the South Carolina game but the way...

Alabama Has a HUGE Weakness I said last week that UGA can beat Alabama.  Texas A&M beat us to it.  They did it by exposing the biggest weakness on the Alabama football team that I wrote in my article last week.  Alabama has a serious deficiency with their pass defense.  It is not just one...

UGA is Getting ROMNEY'ed by Media It all started when UGA finished the season in 2007 as clearly the best team in the country.  However, they were shut out of the SEC Championship because of ESPN and the rest of the media said, "If you don't win your own conference, you should never be allowed to play for the National Title"....

Yes, UGA Can BEAT Alabama!! After the Dawgs beat the Gators at the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party my mind instantly started wandering toward a potential SEC Championship matchup against Alabama.  Then, I quickly reminded myself we have to beat Ole Miss and Auburn first.  After we routed the Rebels on Saturday, I...

These DAWGS Stepped Up! Players of the Game for UGA v. Ole Miss Aaron Murray - Muray rebounded from a poor performance against Florida in a big way against Ole Miss.  He was constantly under pressure...

Can the Dawgs SURVIVE + Gameday Discussion

Gruden WILL NOT Be Vols Next Coach Tennessee fans are working themselves up into a frenzy over the fact that Dooley will be out next season and that John Gruden will be their next coach.  To that I say there is no chance in hell.  But if you know any Tennessee fans don't tell them that because they are likely to bite your head...

UGA Loading Up on Early Enrollees I read the "discussion" response of ImYourHuckleberry to the topic posted by Pitbull (http://www.dawgbark.net/discussions/our-scholarship-limit-is-25-plus-1475.html) and I did not realize that UGA had so...

Recruiting Gone Wild! Recruiting in college football is getting absolutely out of control.  I am watching all of these recruiting saga's play out across the country, especially in the SEC, and it is getting absolutey ridiculous.  Let me just lay a few scenarios out there for what is...

Don't Get Your HOPES Up! Message boards started buzzing today when Robert Nkiemdiche posted his recruiting blog about his upcoming trip to UGA this weekend.  In that blog Nkiemdiche said, "With Georgia, you never know what could happen.  I could start falling in love witht hem again after I visit.  They have open arms...

Dawgs FINAL Chance With BIGGEST Recruit In my opinion Montravius Adams is the best high school football player in the country.  At 6'4 310 pounds he is strong, incredibly athletic, and plays with a very high motor.  I think the most apt comparison for Adams is to compare him to Nick Fairley in his one season at Auburn, without the...

Decision Coming SOON For Dawg's Recruit This weekend the Dawgs have one of their biggest remaining targets in the class of 2013 making his visit to Athens.  His name is Jonathon Rumph and he is a 6'5 215 wide receiver that is currently playing at Holmes Community College.  He has already taken 4 official visits to Mississippi State,...

Georgia's TOP 10 Underclassmen There is a lot being made of the fact that UGA is a veteran football this season.  However, they have quite a few underclassmen who are big contributors this season.  I wanted to put together a list of the top underclassmen in Athens that will be a major reason for this teams continued success...

Mitchell NEEDS to Mature! Malcom Mitchell is without a doubt one of the most talented players on the Georgia football team.  He is fast, he is quick, and suprisingly strong.  He is also one of the most versatile players on the Georgia team with his ability to return kickoffs, return punts, play receiver, and play...

Dawg's READY for Oregon of the SEC? This weekend the Bulldogs will be facing Ole Miss and their new head coach Hugh Freeze for the 1st time.  This will be a much different Ole Miss football team than the one the Bulldogs ran roughshot over in Oxford last season.  Coach Freeze has them playing a new style of football and with a...

He FINALLY Stepped UP! Tonight we finally saw the Cornelius Washington we were hoping to see all season long.  He was playing as a 3-4 defensive end and an outside linebacker.  He also lined up on the inside when UGA went to only 2 down lineman in the nickel formation.  Regardless of...

Nobody BETTER in the Entire Country No disrespect to guys like Jadeveon Clowney and Manti Te'o but they are not Jarvis Jones.  Jarvis Jones is the most dominant, well rounded player in all of college football this season.  Still struggling with groin and ankle injuries Jarvis Jones put on a show...

FIRED!!! I watched some of the replay of the Auburn v. Texas A&M game and it is obvious that Chizik has lost his team.  Auburn has athletes and Auburn has some good football players but Gene Chizik is just not a good football coach.  Without Cam Newton he is now a .500...

Lattimore WILL Return As everyone in the college football world knows Marcus Lattimore suffered a devastating knee injury against Tennessee on Saturday afternoon.  The video on YouTube has gone viral because it is one of the most gruesome looking injuries ever in football.  Some thought...

SMOKING With the Honey Badger Tyran Mathieu has gone from Heisman finalist to cautionary tale in less than a year.  Last season Mathieu was one of the most feared players in all of college football.  Before the season even started he was kicked off the LSU team for multiple drug related...

Can Dawgs Really Play GROWN MAN Football? It is no secret what Florida wants to do - They want to run the ball and pound their opponents into submission.  On defense they want to stop the run and create turnovers.  The question this weekend is, "Georgia are you man enough to play grown man football."

Dawgs Get A Rare Second Chance

Where is the HEART? The team motto is, "Our Team, Our Time, No Regrets".  This team is far from living up to that motto this year.  If this is what a Georgia team with great senior leadership looks like it is embarassing.  When I look at this defense out on the field I don't see any heart, i don't see any fire, I...

Plain and Simple, We Are NOT Good!! Ladies and gentlemen, it is official.  We are not a good defensive football team.  In fact I would go so far as to say we are the most overrated football team in the country, yes even more than Notre Dame.  For all the names and all of the players we have on defense they just aren't that good....

IN-DEPTH Look at 2013 SEC Schedules!! Today the 2013 SEC Football Schedule's were released.  Let's not waste any time with small talk and get right into it with the a look at UGA's finalized 2013 Schedule: 8/31/13 @ Clemson - This will be a difficult opening game for the Dawgs on the road...

Saban Back to the NFL? Alabama Fans Melting Down? The new owner of the Cleveland Browns, Jimmy Haslam, said publicly Tuesday that next year he wants to bring in a new head coach to lead the Cleveland Browns.  When asked who it was Haslam did not mince words - he said "I want Nick Saban".  As you may or may not know Saban has history in...

Gamecocks in BIG Trouble This Weekend! If the Gamecock's schedule including back-to-back-to-back games against three teams ranked in the Top 10 was not difficult enough now the Gamecocks are fighting the injury bug, a flu bug, and apparently a possible suspension issue.  That is not good news for the Gamecocks heading down to the...

Dawgs Aggresively Recruiting Offensive Lineman for 2013 In the South Carolina game the Dawgs weaknesses along the offensive line were exposed for everyone to see.  Most evident was that the Dawgs have a guard, Kenarious Gates, playing out of position at left tackle.  There are very few if any left tackles in college football that can block Jadeveon...

Cornelius Washington Falling Out of Favor? I tortured myself another time by rewatching the UGA v. USC game and I noticed in the 2nd Half you hardly saw Cornelius Washington on the field.  In the first half I saw a lot of Washington either at DE or OLB but in the 2nd Half he was replaced by Jordan Jenkins at OLB and Garrison Smith at...

Can the Dawgs MAKE the Tournament this Year? I know it is still football season but basketball practice began across the country this weekend.  You have the typical teams at the top with Indiana, UCLA, Duke, North Carolina, NC State, Louisville, Ohio State, Kansas, Arizona, and Kentucky but then there appears to be a significant drop of...

SELFISHNESS Hurting Dawgs Defense! If you look at ESPN's Scouts Inc. Top 32 players UGA has four players in the Top 32.  Jarvis Jones is #1, John Jenkins is #7, Alec Ogletree is #10, and Shawn Williams is #27.  So how can a defense that supposedly has 3 of the Top 10 players for next years NFL Draft and 4 players in the Top 32...

Dawgs 2013 Class Is Solid, But Are There ANY Difference Makers? Most recruiting services mention UGA's 2013 recruiting class ranked amongst the Top 10 in the nation.  It is certainly a collection of solid players, which UGA seems to get every year, but are there any difference makers that can make an immediate impact and become an ALL-SEC type player.  I...

Dawgs to Add #1 Prep Player in the Nation! Coming out of Dodge Country HS last season Leonard Floyd was known as one of the best athletes in the state of Georgia.  Standing in at 6'5 215 pounds UGA coaches recruited him to come in and play outside linebacker in the 3-4 defense.  Unfortunately for UGA, the NCAA Clearinghouse would not...

Dawgs DON’T Have the Athletes Against the Gamecocks one thing was made clear - South Carolina has more dynamic athletes than Georgia.  The best example of this is along the defensive line where the Gamecocks have Devin Taylor (6'8 267), Jadeveon Clowney (6'6 265),  Byron Jerideau (6'1 316), Kelcy Quarles (6'4 286), and JT...

Tray Matthews Update & MORE Recruiting News!! Tray Matthews - Tray is having an incredible senior season for Newnan High School.  He is all over the field lining up at safety, quarterback, tailback, and wide receiver.  Regardless of where he has been lining up he has been dominant.  After the Dawg's performance this...

My Thoughts From the USCe Game First of all I want to say whoever egged Christian Robinson, Arthur Lynch, and Aaron Murray's house is out of line. It makes the entire Bulldawg nation look bad to recruits, to other team's fans, and our own players. Also please keep the Murray in your prayers because his dad has cancer. That...

Grow Up Dawg "FANS" As upset as I was with the Dawgs performance against South Carolina there is no excuse for the behavior of the UGA "fans" who egged and rolled Christian Robinson and Aaron Murray's house after the loss.  I am more angry about hearing that than I could ever be about UGA losing a football game....

Attitude Reflects Leadership or LACK There Of Mark Richt was right about two things this weekend.  First, the performance on Saturday night by the staff and the team was an embarassment.  Second, the sun did rise on Sunday morning and we will move on.  However, what we did discover this weekend is that the Bulldogs are a flawed football...

Laremy Tunsil UPDATE The recruitment of Laremy Tunsil is getting very heated at the moment.  If you would have asked most recruiting experts a month ago where they thought Tunsil would play his college football 8 out of 10 would have said UGA.  However, over the last few weeks things have evolved. First,...

Dawgs Get the Kiss of Death? I don't know how many of you were up last night watching the PAC-12 game between Southern Cal and Utah but when halftime came it was time for Mark May and Brian Griese's predictions on the UGA v. South Carolina game.  First up was Mark May - May said he thinks that in a game like this the team...

Saban COMPLAINING Again...Seriously Nick Saban has spoken again and guess what?  He is complaining again.  I know, I know, it is no surprise but it is actually quite funny.  Nick Saban is one of those guys who is not happy unless he is miserable.  So, he has found something to complain about and this time it is the no huddle...

Spurrier’s Recurring NIGHTMARE!! I had the opportunity yesterday to e-mail a friend of mine who is Gamecock graduate from the class of '81, a prominent member of the Gamecock Club, and a football aficionado.  In the e-mail I asked him some some questions that I thought Dawg fans would like to know and below are  his answers.

ImYourHuckleberry - Power Rankings (16) Texas Christian - TCU has questions on both sides of the ball but they are just a well coached football team.  They are fundamentally sound and are not going to beat themselves which is more than you can say for a lot of teams this year. (15) Clemson...

You Ready to Get Hyped!!! Lat night when I was watching Monday night football this promo came on for the UGA v. USC game.  The blood started coursing through my veins and I go so hyped I had to turn on the battle hymn and let out a few barks!!  I am so pumped for this game!! GO DAWGS!!

Dawgs Rushing Attack BETTER Than Gamecocks? When the Dawgs head to Columbia to face the Gamecocks the biggest concern amongst many UGA fans is whether or not the Dawgs can stop the Gamecocks rushing attack.  Yes, I know they have Marcus Lattimore and yes I know Connor Shaw is dual threat QB but the South Carolina rushing offense has not...

ImYourHuckleberry - Offense Grades v. Tennessee Quarterback - B - Aaron Murray played a good game and made some very important throws but he also committed two turnovers that led to 14 points for the Vols.  He needs to do a better job of respecting the football like he had done through the first four games of the season.

ImYourHuckleberry - Week 5 Predictions #4 Florida State at South Florida - Florida State coming off a huge win against Clemson now heads down the road to Tampa to face the South Florida Bulls.  There is no question that Florida State is the better team but South Florida has some athletes that can at least compete...

Saban & Alabama an Embarassment I am going to make this short and sweet.  A young man that is committed to Alabama to play football next season was arrested on "charges of second-degree rape and sodomy" on Thursday, September 6th (first reported by WKRG).  I understand the concept of innocence until proven guilty but when a...

Can Jarvis Take the NEXT Step? Thus far this season Jarvis Jones has 25 total tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 1 Int.  That is even with missing the Florida Atlantic game where he could have easily added another couple sacks and another 8+ tackles.  He is probably the most complete defensive...

Does UGA Have MORE Potential Than Alabama? After the LSU performance against Auburn and UGA's performance against Vanderbilt there are grumblings that UGA may be emerging as the 2nd best team in the SEC this season.  A lot will be determined by the next two weeks when UGA faces Tennessee and South Carolina while LSU will take a road trip...

ImYourHuckleberry - Week #4 SEC Bowl Projections BCS Championship Game - Alabama v. Oregon - At this moment Alabama is the best team in the nation and Oregon may be the most explosive. I don't see any real roadblocks in Oregon's way at this moment because USC and Stanford just don't match up with their speed and...

UGA - "We’re Back!" After the 48-3 dismantling of Vanderbilt in Athens this weekend the Georgia Bulldogs made a statement to the rest of the SEC.  "We're Back!!"  That was the most dominant performance and complete victory by a UGA football team since the 2008 Sugar Bowl v. Hawaii.  Yes, I know UGA has had some...

ImYourHuckleberry - Week 4 Power 16 16) Ohio State - The Buckeyes are 4-0 on this young season but they have a lot of work to do.  Their offense is one dimensional and their defense is questionable.  With a road test this weekend at East Lansing against the Spartans the Buckeyes have a chance to prove they are the...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Weekend v. Tennessee When the Volunteers come to town Saturday afternoon there is more on the line than just a football game, it is also a HUGE recruiting weekend.  This will be the last time UGA can host a recruit for a gameday visit for over 30 days because of the upcoming road schedule.  With that said we are...

Richt Dragging UGA Name Through the Mud? As everyone hear knows Bacarri Rambo and Alec Ogletree have been suspended for the first four games of the season.  Through that time I cannot tell you how many stories I have read across the web from multiple news outlets about the suspensions.  Every day of the week it has been a topic of...

Bray BETTER Than Murray? This weekend in Athens the play of quarterback's Tyler Bray and Aaron Murray will go a long way in determining the outcome of this game.  As far as I am concerned, these are the two best quarterbacks in the SEC this season, and the two best passing offenses.  However, these two...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Vanderbilt Grades Quarterbacks (A+] - Aaron Murray appears to be turning the corner and becoming an elite college football quarterback.  In UGA's last two games he is completing 75% of his passes for 592 yards while throwing 4 TD's and 0 INT's.  He was surgical against Vanderbilt completing his...

ImYourHuckleberry - Week 4 Predictions #2 LSU v. Auburn - LSU has a dominant defense and Auburn has no offense.  Auburn cannot stop the run and LSU has one of the best running games in the nation.  No need for further analysis.  LSU 45 - Auburn 3.

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA’s Top Remaining 2013 Recruiting Targets First, is a list of the uncommitted players I believe will sign with UGA on Signing Day: 1) Laremy Tunsil - OT - 6'6 295 - Tunsil is undoubtedly the #1 player left on the board for UGA and the Dawgs have done a great job of making him feel that...

ImYourHuckleberry - MASSIVE Recruiting Update Part 2 This is Part 2 of today's MASSIVE recruiting update.  A couple hours ago I posted a blog that focused on the offensive players that are already committed to UGA and their senior seasons.  In Part 2, I will focus on the defense. John Atkins - DE - 6'3 305 - Atkins who...

Several UGA Commits VERY Underrated! Paris Bostick - There is not much film out there on Paris but when you do see highlights of him images of Shawn Williams jump into your mind.  Physically he is ready to play college football today.  He attacks the line of scrimmage on run plays and arrives to the ball carrier...

ImYourHuckleberry - SEC East Power Rankings 7) Kentucky - Losing to Western Kentucky is a new low for the Wildcats program.  The Kentucky fans have two countdown clocks running right now.  The first is to opening day of basketball season.  The second is to the day that Joker Phillips will be fired and they can start over...

UGA Gets MORE Respect from ESPN The Big Man on Campus (BMOC) feature is a weekly article written by ESPN writer Gene Wojciechowski.  In his feature he goes through the happenings of the previous college football weekend.  It is a great piece that I highly recommend because of it's combination of good insight and humor.  In his...

Stop Blaming Bobo - Dawgs Offense Most Explosive in SEC A quick look at the statistics show that UGA has one of the most powerful and explosive offenses in the SEC this season led by 3rd year starting QB Aaron Murray. While many have been very quick to criticize Mike Bobo for his playcalling this year he has been leading an offense that has been not...

Vandy Comes to Athens with MANY Questions This offseason the Vanderbilt Commodores coaching staff and players did a lot of talking.  They talked about how the culture had changed and how they would no longer be the doormat of the SEC East.  While the Commodores have certainly improved and look like a better football team there are still...

ImYourHuckleberry - Week 3 Top 16 Power Rankings 16)  Southern California - I know this is a far drop for the Trojans but they were exposed on Saturday night.  They cannot handle the physicality of a team like Stanford and would get dismantled week in and week out in the SEC.  They don't have enough depth along the defensive front seven and...

Wide Receiver Earned Playing Time Against FAU I know it was only one play but I believe Justin Scott-Wesley proved that UGA needs to find a way to get him on the football field this season.  The 5'11 220 pound wide receiver took a short pass and then turned upfield and took it for a big gain.  You saw an incredible burst of speed of speed...

Get Your Sh*t Together and Play Ball!! This season the Dawgs defense has not looked like the same defense that was one of the nation's elite last season.  Instead of coming out, playing hard, and imposing your will on the opposition - this Dawgs defense has played to the level of their competition.  I don't know of any other way to...

Dawgs Get NEW Starter at Left Tackle? In one of the more interesting moments of this weekends game, Dallas Lee, left the game with a sprained ankle.  Instead of bringing in Austin Long to play left guard, Will Friend, decided to bring in Mark Beard to play left tackle and kick Kenarious Gates inside to left guard.  When I went back...

Innovation on Offense from Bobo - Was I Seeing Things? For Dawg fans who have been questioning Mike Bobo and our boring, old school offense we finally saw some innovation this weekend.  UGA who is usually very slow to adopt new trends unveiled a new formation this weekend.  It was the "Pistol" formation that has become very popular in college...

What Happened to Ray Drew? Coming out of HS Ray Drew was a 5-star can't miss prospect that everybody in the SEC wanted.  So far in his Georgia career he has been very quiet and has not seen much of the field.  Like I said about some of the freshmen this is a game where Drew needs to take advantage of playing time and earn...

ImYourHuckleberry - SEC East Power Rankings (7) Kentucky - Kentucky is not as bad of a football team as many thought they would be this season.  Although they lost to Louisville convincingly in the 1st game of the season they looked more capable on offense under Maxwell Smith than I thought they would be all season.  They...

They have NFL Draft Pick’s Backing Up Future NFL Draft Picks "Mizzou isnt' nearly as good at football as No. 7 Georgia, and that's why the tigers lost 41-20 in front of more than 70,000 fans at Memorial Stadium and millions more on television Saturday.  You don't have to be a coach to see that.  Georgia has 350-pound lineman backing up 350-pound...

ImYourHuckleberry - Week 3 Predictions Alabama v. Arkansas There are questions surrounding Tyler Wilson but that really does not matter.  The Arkansas offensive is like a turnstyle in a NYC subway.  Whoever they put at QB will get battered for 60 minutes.  Also,...

Forget Reuben Foster - Raekwon McMillan is a MONSTER! Raekwon McMillan had a monster game for his high school team on Friday night. The young man had 26 tackles, 4 tackles for a loss, a sack, and a forced fumble.  I don't have to tell you how ridiculous those numbers are.   At 6'4 236 pounds Raekwon has the frame to easilty develop into around...

What Will Grantham Do when Tree comes Back? Huckleberry - I know that Alec Ogletree is a hell of a football player.  At the end of last season in the Georgia Tech and LSU games he looked like the best player on our defense.  But up to this point in his absence I have been really impressed by the work that Amarlo Herrera, Mike Gilliard,...

UGA and Jarvis Jones Finally Get RESPECT from ESPN Today ESPN released their Week 2 Heisman Expert's poll.  Jarvis Jones debuted on the list in 7th place.  Ahead of Jarvis Jones was Matt Barkley (USC QB), Geno Smith (WVU QB), De'Anthony Thomas (Oregon RB), Johnathon Franklin (UCLA RB), La'Veon Bell (Michigan State RB), and Marqise Lee (USC WR)....

Laremy Tunsil Update and Prediction Laremy Tunsil has recently made it public that UGA and Alabama are the leaders for his signature on Signing Day.  Florida is certainly on the outside looking in and it is very doubtful that they will be able to make their way back to the top of his list.  So what are UGA and Alabama's recruiting...

Spurrier Creating His Own QB Controversy?? When UGA heads to the old Columbia to face the South Carolina Gamecocks their is now a question of who could be under center for the Gamecocks and Steve Spurrier couldn't be happier.  While Spurrier publicly said that there is no QB controversy in his mind you know that there is something else...

Spurrier’s Creating His Own QB Controversy When UGA heads to the old Columbia to face the South Carolina Gamecocks their is now a question of who could be under center for the Gamecocks and Steve Spurrier couldn't be happier.  While Spurrier publicly said that there is no QB controversy in his mind you know that there is something else...

Mizzou Fans Still in Denial After Loss to UGA From www.tigerboard.com - Missouri's #1 Football Forum "Georgia didn't win this game in the trenches.  We held our own just fine.  That's just the automatic response from every SEC person." "We should have...

UGA Has Their Own Tebow “A lot of guys out there look up to me,” Jones said. “I just had to go the extra mile. I have to push myself and push them so that we can be so much better.” This quote by Jarvis Jones epitomizes what makes him a one of a kind...

Saban You Arrogant A$$ I'm sure quite a few of you have seen this video but it really pisses me off!  You have Saban get in front of the media and just proceed to rip them for not giving the team you are playing enough credit.  Come on Nick, it is Western Kentucky, what do you expect the media to say?  Are they...

ImYourHuckleberry - Top 16 Power Rankings #16 - Oklahoma State - Oklahoma State looks to still be a powerful offensive football team but winning a game 84-0 is uncalled for.  Just run fullback dives or take a knee or whatever.  No need to embarass someone like that. #15 - Ohio State - Braxton Miller had a great game in Urban...

Dawgs Go Down in Columbia I have been reading a lot about UGA stuff on a bunch of sites like this one, Leather Helmet, Saturday Down South, and a few others and it just makes me laugh at how UGA fans think they are going to walk into Columbia and The Zou and just demolish us.  It is not going to happen.  It is going to...

This "Old Man" Is About To Take Off His Belt!! This is the most fired up I have been for a UGA game since the Boise State game last season.  If you want to get fired up to go to TigerBoard.com, the main Missouri football forum, and just read what they have to say about us.  They think they are going to come out on the field Saturday and have...

ImYourHuckleberry - Week 2 SEC East Power Rankings #7 - Kentucky - Watching the Louisville v. Kentucky game on Sunday it was apparent that the Wildcats are far and away the worst team in the SEC East.  They will be competing with Ole Miss for the honors of worst team in the SEC. #6 - Vanderbilt - This is...

Gamecocks??? Hahahaha I know it is early in the game and early in the season but seriously has Spurrier forgotten about the forward pass?  My dad is a high school football coach and their passing game looks l more impressive than what USCe is doing...I know they are running the ball pretty well but come on their...

Missouri Stadium Half Empty? I don't know if you have seen the video that is posted on Leather Helmet and Saturday Down South today but it is hilarious.  These Mizzou students are talking about how they think we are overlooking that game.  The lady that is hosting the show says Georgia has Jarvis Jones and the Mizzou kids...

Tray Matthews - 2 Way Player in Athens? Last night Newnan played Marietta in the 1st game of the season for both teams.  Newnan won 38-29 and Tray Matthews was definitely the MVP of the game.  He was all over the field rushing for a TD, 100+ yards receiving, blocking a punt and having his usual outstanding performance at safety.  He...

SEC Drug Problem There appears to be a rampant drug problem going through the SEC at the moment. The Honey Badger, Da'Rick, and Isaiah Crowell - 3 of the biggest names in the SEC - all kicked off their respective teams for failed drug tests.  For all of these players it is apparently for the use of marijuana....

Open Competition... ? It occurred to me why NASCAR has a bigger following than F1 in the US... Yes, I know this is a University of Georgia blog... please bare with my digression. I have seen Jeff Gordon turn Jimmie Johnson all but sideways trying to steal a win. I have seen Tony Stewart and Bobby Labonte parked nose...

Tray Matthews Update The news keeps coming in today!  I spoke to a source that I have gotten to know very well over the last few months who is wired in around Lagrange, Newnan, Peachtree City, and Tyrone.  He e-mailed me this morning with his thoughts on Tray Matthews and I trust his judgment.  He told me 1 week...

UGA in Interesting Position with One of Nation’s Top Recruits When Greg Bryant decommitted from Oklahoma he gave three primary reasons.  (1) He wanted to play closer to home.  (2)  He wanted to play his college football in the SEC.  (3)  He wanted to play in a pro-style offense.  All of those factors come together to make UGA a main contender for his...

Hey Buck...Shut Your Mouth! You can tell football season is coming when you wake up at 6am in the mountains of North Georgia and there is a chill in the air.  You can tell football season is coming when you come home from work and your son is wearing his UGA uniform playing football in the front yard.  You can also tell...

Junkyard Dawgs versus "The Tank" Brian Burwell of the St. Louis Today newspaper wrote an article on August 12, 2012 that said the following: "The Tank” is Franklin's nickname for his Neanderthal alter ego. It's Franklin's inner football beast, a muscle-flexing madman who would just as soon plow over...

Up/Down’s - Top 10 Players in Athens after Week 3 of Fall Practice 10) Josh Harvey-Clemons - This may be a little bit of a reach but you cannot deny that JHC is a special athlete.  UGA coaches have gone as far to create a position just for him.  He has been consistently making big hits and picking off passes.  He could be a huge help for the...

The Most Interesting Man in the World - Marquez North Mallard Creek WR Marquez North is a very interesting young man.  He is beyond what I would call quiet and reserved.  He does not feel comfortable speaking in front of a group of people.  I would compare him to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist without the studder.  He just appears very quiet.  The...

Can UGA Win The Rest of Their Games in 2011? UGA was the only team in college football to open their season against two Top 25 football teams. Not only were these teams ranked in the Top 25, one was ranked 4th and the other 12th. An opening schedule does not come much more brutal than that. Unfortunately for UGA those opening two games have...

Come On Buck Belue - You are Better than the Garbage You Write The blog Buck Belue wrote after the UGA vs. South Carolina game was complete garbage. If you have not read the blog he wrote here it is:“That one hurt. But so do all the defeats.

UGA vs. South Carolina – Key Players on Offense UGA Offensive PlayersTavarres KingKing had a horrible game against Boise State. He did not get open often enough and he also dropped some key passes. Many touted him as the next #1 UGA wide receiver. He obviously would not be able to replace A.J. Green but many people were...

There Is, Was, Only Will Be 1 Herschel When Jasper Sanks, Caleb King, and now Isaiah Crowell signed on the dotted line to play for the University of Georgia the comparisons began. They were all among the top running backs in the nation and UGA fans began to reminisce back to 1980-1982. Fans and media asked the question, “Is he the next...

Can UGA Beat South Carolina?? The challenge in Week 2 comes in the form of Steve Spurrier’s South Carolina Gamecocks. A week after a disheartening loss is it possible for UGA to recover and defeat a Top 10 team? The answer to that question is yes. Why is that answer yes – I will give you several reasons.1) UGA...

If You Don’t Support the Coaches – Support the Players! Certainly I am as disappointed as every other Bulldog fan out there. We were out-schemed, outplayed, and overmatched by Boise State. Like many UGA fans I thought we would be better prepared and too big, strong, and physical for Boise State. Unfortunately we were wrong. I am going to make a clear...

What is Georgia Football?? Do We Have An Identity?? This is the most disappointed I have been after a UGA football game in several years. Sure last season I was upset that we went 6-7 and had an embarrassing loss to Central Florida. However, coming into this game I expected UGA to impose their will on Boise State both offensively and defensively....

UGA vs. Boise Prediction & Other Games of Interest #14 TCU Horned Frogs vs. Baylor BearsThis is one of the underrated matchups in Week 1. TCU has been a dominant force in college football the past five years and they will face an early challenge against Baylor. Led by dynamic QB – Robert Griffin III – TCU’s defense will be challenged...

UGA vs. BOISE STATE - 5 Keys to the Game 1) Size Does Matter – UGA has much more size than Boise State and they need to take advantage of that both on offense and defense by dominating the line of scrimmage. The Boise defensive line is disruptive and was amongst the top in the nation in sacks. Therefore, UGA needs to attack...

UGA’s Next Great Tailback Duo?? After the 2009 Georgia Tech game when Caleb King and Washaun Ealey combined for 38 carries and 349 yards many thought they were witnessing the rise of a dominant duo for the 2010 season and beyond. Due to health concerns, attitude problems, and academic issues that never materialized. In fact,...

Fired Up!! Coach Richt’s Boise Pregame Speech! Pregame SpeechMen, all this stuff you’ve heard about the Bulldog Nation not wanting to fight, wanting to stay out of the game, is a lot of horse dung. Dawgs, traditionally, love to fight. All real Dawgs love the sting of battle.When you were kids, you all admired the...

Quarterback Matchup – UGA vs. Boise State This is not your typical position-by-position analysis. My analysis takes into account much more than each player’s skills. It also takes into account their supporting casts and the potential advantages and mismatches created by their opponent. Kellen Moore: 6’0 191 Sr.

Players Switching to Offense Since seeing Branden Smith electrify the G-Day crowd on offense this spring a topic of conversation has been how many snaps he will get on offense. I have long been on the record that I thought Smith should switch completely to offense because he could be a Percy Harvin type of weapon for the UGA...

Marlon Brown....It Is Time Nearly three years ago at the Under Armor All-American game Marlon Brown caught a quick slant in front of the cornerback and outraced the entire defense to the endzone for a 70-yard touchdown reception. About 45 minutes later he committed to the University of Georgia and fans believed we had found...

UGA Day in Charlotte Recap On May 12,2011 at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, North Carolina a who’s who of University of Georgia gathered to address UGA Alumni. President Michael Adams joined Greg McGarity, Mark Fox, and Mark Richt as the keynote speakers for the evening. Approximately 500 UGA alumni gathered in the...

Alec Ogletree to Linebacker is a Great Move In this era in college football against spread offenses you need linebackers who can run and cover tight ends, running backs, and wide receivers. Opposing coordinators are looking for mismatches all over the field. Last year when we had to flex Cornelius Washington, Darryl Gamble, and other...

Everything About UGA Football is Changing and I Love It “Everything we’re going to do is changing, we have to change! We’re going to change the way we eat, we’re going to change the way we sleep, we’re going to change the way we run, we’re going to change the way we block, we’re going to change the way we tackle, we’re going to change the way we win!”...

Change is Coming Between the Hedges – Part 6 – Physical and Mental Toughness After an unsuccessful season for the Georgia Bulldogs in 2010 change is coming. Many bloggers have suggested a complete overhaul between the hedges however it is clear that will not happen. Therefore, instead of writing pointless articles with ludicrous premises like, “Fire Richt and hire Mike...

Many bloggers have suggested a complete overhaul between the hedges however it is clear that will not happen. Therefore, instead of writing pointless articles with ludicrous premises like, “Fire Richt and hire Mike...

Season Review - #5 Blake Sailors Blake Sailors should be one of the favorite players of the Bulldog Nation. This season UGA went from one of the worst kickoff coverage teams in the SEC to the best and Sailors is a large reason why. This kid is 110 mph all the time flying down the field and never gives up. He seems to have a...

Tomorrow is About More than Beating Tech – It’s About the Future Tomorrow the Bulldogs will “Tee it Up Between the Hedges” for the last time in 2010. While this season has been a disappointment for many Dawgs, a win against Georgia Tech and a bowl game victory will leave a good taste in their mouth for the offseason. However, tomorrow is more important than a...

Key Matchup vs. Georgia Tech This weekend against Georgia Tech the key matchup is the play of our safeties against the Georgia Tech running game and play action. When you go against a triple option team like Georgia Tech your defense has to play with excellent discipline. In watching Paul Johnson’s team over the past several...

5 Keys to a UGA Win Over Georgia Tech 1) Get the Ball to A.J. Green – If you already did not know before the Auburn game, A.J. Green is unstoppable. There is not a secondary in college football that can stop him all game long. UGA must devise a game plan to get him the ball early and often. The Georgia Tech secondary has struggled all...

Will This Be A.J.’s Final Game Between the Hedges? A.J. Green is the most dominant receiver to ever put on a Bulldog uniform. He has size, speed, strength, hands, and body control that will all combine to make him the top wide receiver drafted in the NFL. There is no doubt that he will go on to a long career and cause nightmares for coordinators...

Most Important Offseason Objective = Zero Arrests In many articles I read bloggers, reporters, and columnists all talk about what the UGA football program needs to achieve in the offseason. Some say UGA needs to hire a new Strength & Conditioning coach. Others say we need to finish strong in recruiting by getting the likes of Jay Rome, Isaiah...

Les Miles Might Be An Idiot With the end of the college football coming into site, it’s that time of year again where every college coach feels the need to campaign for their “right” to be in the National Championship. Campaigning is fine, IF you actually earned the right to be considered, however, we now have Les Miles who is...

Pregame Speech for Auburn Next Season Men, all this stuff you've heard about the Bulldog Nation not wanting to fight, wanting to stay out of the game, is a lot of horse dung. Dawgs, traditionally, love to fight. All real Dawgs love the sting of battle.When you were kids, you all admired the championship teams, the fastest...

When the Bulldogs return to the top of College Football.... which will happen very soon, all Dawg fans need to remember how we feel these past two years. We will feel exhiliration like we have not felt it in many years. Those of you who attended the AU game witnessed how we will feel when we are playing for a championship. The AU fans could not control...

Fairley is a Hell of a Player, But Plays DIRTY! I fully expect Mark Richt to send video to the SEC of Nick Fairley asking why there were not more personal foul penalties called on Nick Fairley. I give Fairley all the credit in the world for all of the havoc he causes. He is big, strong, and unbelievably quick for his size. He is also relentless...

Spare Me the Criticism of Richt, Bobo, and Grantham I can already see the headlines in the Atlanta Journal Constitution on Sunday and the next two weeks leading up to Georgia Tech. Mark Bradley will be saying that Richt is on the way out the door. Jeff Schultze will say that Georgia was outcoached and the SEC has passed Richt by. At the same time...

Spare Me the Criticism of Richt, Bobo, and Grantham I can already see the headlines in the Atlanta Journal Constitution on Sunday and the next two weeks leading up to Georgia Tech. Mark Bradley will be saying that Richt is on the way out the door. Jeff Schultze will say that Georgia was outcoached and the SEC has passed Richt by. At the same time...

Five Keys to the UGA vs. Auburn Game 1) Control the Football – The UGA defense cannot afford to be on the field for much more than 30 minutes on Saturday. Auburn runs a fast paced offense very similar to what Florida did against UGA 2 weeks ago. They will make it difficult to substitute and they will try to wear you down through the...

Auburn Will Provide True Progress Report for the Future The Georgia Bulldogs are 4-1 in their last five games. The sting of a 1-4 start is still their but this football team has improved as the season has gone on. While, the competition in the last five games has not been stellar we have seen improvements on offense and defense. If you want to see how...

Critics…Be Careful What You Ask For It is not very often when I agree with the pundits on ESPN but this is one situation where I do. It is completely ridiculous for Mark Richt to be on the hot seat. There are several reasons:1) While at UGA, Mark Richt has a record of 50-21 against SEC competition. That is a 70% winning...

Urban vs. Richt: Who would you want? Current SEC Stats:Urban Meyer: 62-13 SEC Record. 3 SEC Eastern Division Championships. 2 SEC Championships. 2 National Championships.Mark Richt: 94-13 SEC Record. 4 SEC Eastern Division Championships. 2 SEC Championships. 0 National Championships.If you came here to...

UGA vs. Louisiana Lafayette Prediction There is no doubt that UGA is the superior team in this match up with better athletes and better football players. However, this game will have a much different feel for the players because the fans are going to be really into this game regardless of the fact that it is an inferior opponent. There...

5 Things To Watch For in Game 1 That Could Lead to SEC Title in 2010 1) Pressure on the Opposing QB [6+ Sacks]Many in the Bulldog Nation expect the Dawgs to keep their defensive gameplan somewhat vanilla in the opening game so that South Carolina does not have much tape to watch. However, while Grantham will not show his most exotic blitzes I expect him...

The Days of Thomas Davis and Greg Blue are Back Opposing running backs, wide receivers, and quarterbacks used to quiver in fear when they saw the Georgia Bulldogs coming up on the schedule. Offensive tackles had nightmares for weeks. Offensive coordinators would lose sleep. Greg Blue and Thomas Davis were the cause of more sleepless nights...

No Justification, Only Explanation: Thoughts on the Arrests of Bulldog Players in the Richt Era On a daily basis when Dawg fans open their morning newspaper they are constantly bombarded with news of the latest UGA player arrested on the front page. Columnists say that Richt has lost control of his players and that UGA needs to change the type of players they recruit. However, when the SEC...

DawgBark Top 30 - #29 West Virginia Mountaineers The Mountaineers return 19 starters from a team that went 9-4 in 2009. They have a very favorable schedule outside of the two very difficult road games at LSU and at Pittsburgh. The Big East will likely be a weak conference this year with only 1 team in the Top 25 to start the season. The biggest...

Can We PLEASE Force Some Turnovers & Respect the Ball!! Anyone who follows the game of football knows that in order to win ballgames you need to “Respect the Ball” and “Force Turnovers”. Last season the Bulldogs were terrible in both categories. UGA led the SEC with 28 turnovers on offense and forced the fewest turnovers in the SEC with a mere 12...

68 Days Until Kickoff: #68 Chris Burnette In 2009 Burnette was an early enrollee for the UGA football program. He is an incredibly smart kid having graduated #1 in his class in high school and has also shown considerable ability on the football field.With his intelligence and growing strength after his first full season at UGA...

Super-Conferences Would End the Greatness of College Athletics What was once just an idea is now coming to fruition. Nebraska is leaving the Big-12 for the Big-10. Colorado is leaving the Big 12 for the Pac-10. Next could be Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State leaving the Big-12 for the Pac-10. The Big 12 will have no choice but to dissolve and...

95 Days Until Kickoff: #95 Reuben Faloughi Dawg fans should all be cheering very hard for Reuben Faloughi to have a successful career as a Georgia Bulldog. He is one of those great stories that does not come along to often. Coming out of high school he was a pretty good athlete but he was just too small and did not have the strength to...

Top 8 Team DB Depth Charts for the SEC 2010 1) Florida GatorsFlorida returns an outstanding secondary in 2010 despite the loss of Joe Haden. Will Hill, Janoris Jenkins, and Ahmad Black will anchor the best secondary in the SEC if not the country. This group will be the key to the success of the Florida defense in 2010.

Top 8 Team WR & TE Depth Charts in the SEC for 2010 (1) UGA – A.J. Green / Orson Charles/ Tavares King / Aron White / Rontavious Wooten / Kris Durham / Marlon Brown / Arthur LynchUGA has the best receiver to play college football since Larry Fitzgerald in A.J. Green. You cannot cover him 1 on 1 and if you do he will make the play 9 times...

Top 8 Team QB Depth Charts in the SEC for 2010 (1) Ryan Mallett – Arkansas RazorbacksRyan Mallett is perhaps the most gifted passer in the entire country in 2010. At 6’7 250 pounds he stands tall in the pocket and delivers the ball with great accuracy. For Arkansas to have a successful season Mallett must stay healthy.

Can UGA become an ELITE football program? Currently in College Football there are five programs that most consider elite. In order of most dominant to least dominant I would go – (1) Alabama Crimson Tide (2) Florida Gators (3) Texas Longhorns (4) USC Trojans (5) Ohio State Buckeyes. What makes an elite program? I will lay that out team...

Spring Preview 2010 - Offensive Line Ben Jones – C – 6'3 300 Jones is an absolute animal on the offensive line. I remember watching a recruiting video of him at a camp going one on one with the top defensive tackles and defensive ends in the country and he was intense and dominating. Now coming into his junior season he should be...

2010 Spring Outlook – Quarterbacks Logan Gray Logan Gray is UGA's only QB coming back with any game experience. I think many people misconceive Logan Gray as strictly a runner and not a passer. What many don't realize is that he was an Elite 11 Quarterback. He has great mobility and throws with great accuracy and consistency....

Georgia Basketball shows what’s possible for Georgia Football In watching the UGA basketball team this year, in particular the Kentucky, Georgia Tech, and Tennessee games, it shows what is possible with good coaching. Coming into this year the Georgia basketball team had one proven commodity and that was Trey Thompkins. Outside of that in the 2008-2009...

After the Meyer/Kiffin situations we should all have a new respect for Coach Richt! This has been one of the more remarkable offseason's in the SEC in recent memory. First, Urban Meyer saying, "I'm retiring, oh nevermind I am just taking next year off, nevermind that too I am going to be back for fall practice, oh well hold on again I am not sure what my plans are." I think...

Tennessee handling the Kiffin trauma with class, urine. With all of the drama happening in the SEC East, well, mainly between Urban Meyer and Lane Kiffin, I only have one thing to say to the Bulldog Nation: Are we having fun yet? Seriously, the last two months have taken a 180 degree turn as we enter the offseason. First, the almighty Urban Meyer...

Are We Witnessing a Reinvention of Coach Richt?? When Lebron James came to the NBA Nike started the “We Are All Witness” advertising campaign. Well on Saturday night in Atlanta, Georgia we were all witness to the reinvention of Mark Richt. We all know that Coach Richt is a good man who has his priorities in order with God and Family ahead of...

Happy Thanksgiving…Now Let’s Kick Some Jackets! First, I hope everyone out in Bulldog Nation had an awesome Thanksgiving. As a fan base, we all have so much to be thankful for. For all of the years we have been a football powerhouse in not only in the SEC, but the entire sport. For all of the big games we have played in and played hard, win...

Standing Ovation for Joe Cox In 2005 Joe Cox came to the University of Georgia from Independence High School in Charlotte, NC. Myself, my father, and my brother-in-law all live in Charlotte and we used to go to at least one Independence game each year dressed in all Georgia gear to watch Joe play. He was one of the most...

How is Tim Tebow considered this high for Heisman? This may sound like a stupid question, but why is Tim Tebow still considered so highly for the Heisman? Don't get me wrong, I think Tebow is the best college football player that I may ever see. I would probably even root for him if he wasn't playing on a team that I hate. However, although he...

Proof of Bad Defensive Coaching! (And Possibly Bad Recruiting Choices) Our Two SEC Championships Under Mark Richt were in 2002 and 2005. Look at these statistics for each year - 2002 - Defensive Coordinator: Brian Van Gorder Rushing Defense: 52nd - 143 yds Passing Efficiency Defense: 12th - 105.8 Total Defense: 18th - 313 yds Scoring Defense: 8th - 16.3 pts...

Can we stop dancing now???? There is a time to dance...at a party....and a time to play football....on the football field...how about some focus and intensity on making plays....instead of getting "loose"....

What to Do After the Florida Loss?? I think it is safe to say that this season is a loss after Florida beat us yet again. I think we need to use this chance to prepare for the next year and the future. First, if you do not think Logan Gray is the QB of the future I think you take the redshirt off of Aaron Murray and give him a...
