ImYourHuckleberry - Bulldogs Who Could be DRAFTED in 2016 NFL Draft Leonard Floyd – 6'4 231Projected Round – 1st Round (Top 15)Projected 40 Time – 4.52Leonard Floyd is absolutely everything an NFL defense is looking for whether it runs the 3-4 or the 4-3.  The hyper-athletic Floyd has incredible fluidity and length that allows...

Alpha Dawg - Champ Bailey 1997 – 1st Team ALL-SEC1998 – 1st Team ALL-SEC1998 – Consensus 1st Team All-American1998 – Bronco Nagurski Award WinnerIn an era where the two-way football player had become...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recap of Week 1 of Spring Practice Coach Shotty a Hit - In Brian Schottenheimer's 1st week on the practice field with the team it is clear that the players have taken to him.  When players have been allowed to speak publicly there is nothing but positives about Coach Shotty and it feels very similar to the feel...

Back to the Future in the SEC East in 2015? The SEC East looks like a division in the midst of a swing in power as spring practice opens across the country.In the nineties and early 2000's the SEC East was absolutely dominated by Florida and Tennessee and the rest of the East couldn't come close to keeping up.  It was until 2002 when...

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

#65 - Kendall Baker - Review & Looking Forward I consider Kendall Baker the biggest wildcard on the offensive line under new OL coach Rob Sale.  UGA has...

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

#54 - Brandon Kublanow - Review & Looking Forward After limited playing time as a true freshmen Kublanow stepped up in a big way in 2014.  Kublanow has the mental makeup and brute strength to be a dominant run blocker which he showed in stretches last season.  His struggles mostly came in pass protection but a lot of that was the result of...

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

#35 - Aaron Davis - Review & Looking Forward Davis was one of the most pleasant surprises of the 2014 season.  Nothing was expected from the walk-on but he emerged in spring practice under Jeremy Pruitt and earned overachieved all season long in a starting role.  Davis is a glue guy.  He is an incredibly intelligent football player that not...

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

#27 Nick Chubb - Review & Looking Forward What can you say about Nick Chubb's true freshmen that hasn't already been said?  He was better than advertised.  Comparison's to Herschel Walker and Bo Jackson have been mentioned and while he may not have the sprinter speed those two had, physically he is a phenom.  Chiseled out of granite,...

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

#23 – Shakenneth Williams – Review & Looking Forward In 2014 Shakenneth surprisingly saw the field as a true freshmen after injuries had a major impact once again on the Georgia receiving corps.  His playing time was limited but when on the field you saw a combination of size, speed and fluidity that looked very promising.  Also, he did an...

#22 – Brendan Douglas – Review & Looking Forward The 2014 season was an up and down ride for Douglas.  He had a bigger role than anyone could have predicted in 2013 with the injuries to Gurley and Marshall and then in 2014 his role was expected to be taken over by a pair of 5-Star Freshmen and a healthy Gurley and Marshall ahead of him....

#20 – Quincy Mauger – Review & Looking Forward I would argue that Mauger was the most improved player on the defense in 2014.  The progress that he made from a true freshmen under Todd Grantham to his sophomore season under Jeremy Pruitt was nothing short of remarkable.  He showed his ability to grasp the concepts of Pruitt's defense and was...

#13 - Jonathan Ledbetter - Review & Looking Forward Ledbetter has already arrived on campus as an early enrollee and has been told he will wear #13 during his Bulldog career.  During his senior season at Tucker HS Ledbetter played all over the field but primarily at defensive end and tight end.  Regardless of position Ledbetter was a man amongst...

#12 – Brice Ramsey – Review & Looking Forward Brice Ramsey had a very interesting redshirt freshmen season.  He entered the season tied with Faton Bauta at #2 on the depth chart but quickly earned the backup QB job all to himself.  At one point there was serious consideration given to starting Ramsey as Hutson Mason was struggling.  However,...

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

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

ImYourHuckleberry - #4 – Keith Marshall – Review & Looking Forward This was a rough season for Keith Marshall and certainly not the season he was expecting.  Having torn his ACL in the Tennessee game in 2013, Marshall had to work hard for 10 months to put himself in a position to get back on the field against Clemson and he did that and more.  Physically,...

ImYourHuckleberry - #1 Sony Michel – Review & Looking Forward As a true freshmen Sony Michel came to Athens and quickly worked his way to #2 on the Depth Chart, only behind Todd Gurley.  Unfortunately for Michel he suffered a shoulder injury and sprained ankle that sidelined him for 6 weeks this season.  In spite of the injuries Michel showed the Bulldog...

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

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

Tough Test Facing Mason & UGA Receivers There is a lot working in the Bulldogs favor this weekend as they travel down to Jacksonville. The Gators are a shell of their typical selves and on and UGA appears to just be starting to hit their stride. That is not to say this won't be a big test for the Bulldogs because the Gators probably...

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

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

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

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

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

ImYourHuckleberry - Huge Recruiting Update - The Safety Position Through two games this season the trends are starting emerge on this team with regards to personnel strengths and weaknesses.  There are areas where the Bulldogs have elite ability all the way to areas that will need huge improvement to come in the Class of 2015.  Over the next I will update Top...

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

Can UGA Offensive Line Be Dominant? The Bulldogs have recruited well throughout the Mark Richt era along the offensive front.  Often bringing in 4-Star prospects and the occasional 5-star prospect the UGA offensive line.  However, in the fourteen years Richt has been in Athens there have only been two offensive line units that I...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - 5 Keys for Defense in Fall Camp #1 – Safety – Last season the play at the safety position for the Bulldogs was absolutely horrific most of the season.  There is no other way to say it and if you have any doubts just go back and watch the way the Auburn game ended with two of our safeties running into each other...

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

STARTING Secondary v. Clemson? Jeremy Pruitt has made it clear that there are no starters on defense and that those decisions will be made early in fall practice after the staff has had the opportunity to evaluate the progress players made over the summer and the skill level of incoming freshmen.  However, when you look at the...

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

SEC Top 20 Impact Freshmen - #8 Lorenzo Carter - UGA After spring practice defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt made it clear that there is one thing he wants more than anything else on his defense - SPEED!  With Lorenzo Carter you get a ton of speed in a 6'6 238 pound frame.  By no means am I saying that Carter is Jadeveon Clowney (or going to be...

SEC Top 20 Impact Freshmen - #12 - Jalen Hurd - RB - Tennessee The second Tennessee player on this list of SEC Top 20 Impact Freshmen is Jalen Hurd.  Jalen Hurd is a monster of a young running back in the mold of Derrick Henry (Alabama) at 6'3 235 pounds.  He is one of those guys who is a freak of nature in terms of the combination of size, balance, agility...

SEC Top 20 Impact Freshmen - #14 - Nick Chubb - RB - Georgia The legend of Nick Chubb is only growing larger and larger as his impending arrival in Athens, GA is growing closer and closer.  As Chubb continues to grind things out in the weight room he is also showing out for the Cedartown HS track team.  Over the weekend Chubb through the shotput 55 feet 8...

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

SEC Top 20 Impact Freshmen 2014 - #20 Jeb Blazevich - UGA - TE #20 - Jeb Blazevich - TE - UGAThe Bulldogs historically love to throw the ball to the TE and in 2014 they have quite a few question marks with the loss of Arthur Lynch to the NFL.  Jay Rome is next in line but he has historically had trouble staying healthy and the other...

ImYourHuckleberry - This Teams Two BIGGEST Question Marks?!?! #2 - Fundamentals - This team has a ton of athletic talent.  Sometimes it appears that players rely on their god-given abilities to get by and don't put enough work into building their fundamentals and having a solid base upon which to build upon.  A lot of the time you see that...

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

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

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

UGA's 2014 Schedule Getting EASIER? UGA has another difficult start to the season in 2014 opening up with Clemson at home and then facing South Carolina in Columbia, but with the attrition that is taking place at Clemson that game is starting to look more and more favorable for the Bulldogs.  The list below is starters from Clemson...

ImYourHuckleberry - 2014 Offense - Who Starts? Who Sits? QB:         Hutson Mason – Status:  StrongMason has patiently waited his turn and Richt is loyal to veterans for the most part.  Brice Ramsey, Faton Bauta or Jacob Park would have to do something special in spring and fall practice in order to unseat...

Fanternity - 2013 ALL-SEC Team QB – Aaron Murray – UGA – There are a lot of great QB's in the SEC this season but none quite measures up to what Murray did as a senior.  Murray demonstrated that he is the best pocket passer and led the most impressive game winning drives of any QB in the SEC.RB...

ImYourHuckleberry - BIG TIME Recruiting Update!!!

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

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

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

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...

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...

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

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...

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

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

Tennessee Fans NOT too CONFIDENT In my usual weekly feature when I know someone who has the pulse of the opposing team and fan base I like to ask them a few questions.  This weekend I reached out to a friend of mine and he provided some quality analysis and insight into the attitude of the Volunteer fan base:#1 –...

INTERESTING View - UGA Depth Chart Broken Down INCLUDING Recruits! Below is a detailed look at the Bulldogs roster broken down my class with the last column being current commits to UGA.  It was something I have been asked about on several occasions.  It is interesting to see how the roster is broken down.  You can certainly see that the areas of biggest need in...

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

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

BIGGEST Test for UGA Run Defense? The only way the Tennessee Volunteers can beat the Georgia Bulldogs this weekend in Knoxville is to run the ball and play keep away from the Georgia defense.  In the press conferences for both Mark Richt and Butch Jones you got the idea that it was the #1 key for the Vols to be able pound the...

New STARTER at Cornerback? One of the goals that was not accomplished in the North Texas game was building a large enough lead to where the coaches felt comfortable giving some of the freshmen some playing time to get much needed experience.  I am certain the coaches would have liked to get more time to evaluate guys like...

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...

Position CHANGE for Paris Bostick - Good or Bad? In some exciting news for UGA Paris Bostick has been cleared to return to practice all be it in a limited capacity.  The 6'1 217 pound true freshmen from Plant HS in Florida had surgery before fall practice to fix a nagging toe injury from his HS days.  Initially thought to be recruited to play...

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...

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...

Do Dawgs Have ANY DEPTH at CB? We heard a lot this off-season about the coaches being very excited because of the amount of depth that they would have on defense this season.  So far we are seeing that ring true on the defensive line where Garrison Smith, Sterling Bailey, Ray Drew, Toby Johnson, Josh Dawson, Johnathan Taylor...

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...

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...

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

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

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

Freshmen Cornerbacks SHOWING OUT at UGA There has been a lot of worries about the Bulldogs safeties during fall camp and those concerns are well warranted.  Tray Matthews and Corey Moore have not been able to stay healthy during fall practice.  Shaq Fluker has also been in and out of practice quite a bit while  Josh Harvey-Clemmons is...

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...

UPDATE on Freshmen Inside Linebackers One area where everything has been awfully quiet this season is the inside linebacker position.  We have all heard about how Shaq Wiggins, Brendan Langley and Shaq Fluker have been standing out but outside of early enrollee Reggie Carter we have not heard much about the other inside linebackers....

Bellamy & DeLoach Suffer INJURIES Freshmen outside linebacker Davin Bellamy and projected starting outside linebacker James DeLoach both suffered injuries to their thumbs in practice on Sunday, both requiring surgery according to the University of Georgia.  DeLoach's injury is a sprained ligament and Bellamy's injury is a broken...

HUGE Practice Today!! This is what we have all been waiting for – coaches, players and fans!  The Bulldogs strap on the full gear today and go with a full pads practice for the first time of the season so there will be live contact and they will really be able to G.A.T.A.  This will be the first time we get to see...

ImYourHuckleberry - Fall Camp Question #3 Who will START opposite of Jordan Jenkins at OLB?Jordan Jenkins proved last season as a true freshmen that he was a beast and had unreal potential.  So much so that Jarvis Jones said he was much more talented than he ever would be. That is incredibly high praise.  But...

Noseguard Depth Chart Written in PENCIL Another great battle in fall practice will unfold at one of the most important positions on Todd Grantham's defense - noseguard.  After spring practice the depth chart has Mike Thornton as 1st team NG and Chris Mayes as his backup.  Not listed on that depth chart is the biggest wildcard for the...

ImYourHuckleberry - 4 KEYS to Fall Camp! It is almost here!  With each passing day we are closer and closer to strapping those chinstraps tight at “little” Death Valley in Clemson for one of the premier matchups of the season.  However, before the moment we have all been waiting for since the final whistle sounded in our victory over...

Dawgs BUILDING a MONSTER! There is no question that UGA has had a ton of talent on the defensive side of the ball since Todd Grantham has been in Athens.  Some of the defenses have lived up to expectations while some have underwhelmed.  Regardless, there seems to have been a constant theme in Athens.  There has been a...

Myth of CULTURE and LEADERSHIP in Athens? Every offseason their tends to be a lot of talk around the program about how the team is working harder over the summer than they ever have.  There is talk about how there is more leadership around the program from the upperclassmen.  There is talk about how dedicated everyone is to winning an...

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...

UGA Finally Has That DUDE!!! Hear me out on this.  When you look back over the last 10 years of teams who have won National Championships every team has had a guy on their team, a superstar that carried them to victory in their close games.  In 2004 Southern Cal had Reggie Bush, in 2005 Texas had Vince Young, in 2006 and...

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 - #8 Ray Drew – DE – 6'5 280Last night after having the opportunity to listen to Thomas Davis speak in Charlotte and spend a moment talking about Recruiting Rankings and how a players “stars” stick with them the rest of their career it really put things into perspective.  Drew was rated as a...

ImYourHuckleberry – Top 10 BREAKOUT Players - #9 Keith Marshall – 5'11 219 – RBI know what you are saying, Keith Marshall already broke out last year!  The kid had 759 yards rushing with averaged 6.5 yards per carry and had 8 TD's.  Yes, those numbers are impressive for any true freshmen in the SEC but Marshall's performance was largely...

ImYourHuckleberry - Top 10 BREAKOUT Players - #10 Sheldon Dawson – 5'11 190 – CBLast season when the Dawgs were desperately searching for talented corners in the HS ranks to add to their depth chart that would soon be depleted by graduation your eyes kept moving toward Sheldon Dawson when you watched him on film.  Out at Ridgeway HS in...

UGA’s Top 6 IMPACT Freshmen/Transfers I posted a poll several weeks ago regarding who UGA fans thought would be the biggest impact incoming player for the Dawgs this season.  The runaway leader was Tray Matthews and Reggie Wilkerson who suffered a season ending knee injury was also high up on that list.  Using the input of Dawg fans...

An IN-DEPTH Look at UGA’s Scholarship Numbers Freshmen Sophomore

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...

PRESSURE Now on Wiggins & Langley The Bulldogs suffered a much bigger loss than you would think today when Reggie Wilkerson reportedly suffered a season ending knee injury.  When I was able to see Wilkinson practice up close this spring he was one of the most impressive true freshmen on that enrolled early.  He was covering the...

McGarity Getting POLITICAL After the arrest of John Atkins, an incoming freshmen Noseguard for not wearing his seatbelt and for not having a valid driver's license there was a lot of backlash from the Bulldog faithful directed at Chief Jimmy Williamson.  When McGarity spoke yesterday he attempted to calm some of that...

Something SPECIAL for UGA v. USC Game!! Unfortunately I was at that at that debacle in the Worst Tailgating Town in the SEC (Columbia, SC) for the game last season.  I am not even going get started on how terrible the tailgating experience is there but what I am going to get into is how insane Williams-Brice was.  All I can say is the...

HUGE Recruiting Visit for Dawgs This weekend the Dawgs had the #1 player in the state of Georgia and perhaps the #1 player in the Nation on campus, Lorenzo Carter.  Carter stated several weeks ago that Alabama and UGA are the only teams guaranteed to have a spot in his Top 5 when he releases that list.  That is great news for...

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...

Incoming Freshmen Going BEAST MODE Johnny O'Neal, Mr. No Neck himself is going absolutely beast mode in the workout room getting ready for his arrival at UGA.  Johnny was listed at 6'2 230 pounds by a majority of recruiting services and now according to a variety of reports he has elevated his weight to 250!  I can't even begin to...

Dawgs REACHING OUT to Milan Richard? In a development that we had heard rumors swirling for the last few days, Ty Smith has decided to transfer from the University of Georgia and most likely to Georgia Military College.  While UGA has two proven commodities at tight end in Arthur Lynch and Jay Rome losing Smith certainly hurts their...

Any IMPACT Players Arriving this Fall? The Dawgs had a huge group of early enrollee's in the Class of 2013, many of them potential impact players.  However, some there are several players who  the coaches are expecting to make an impact on the field this fall that are about to arrive in Athens in the next couple weeks.  Who are the 5...

A DIFFERENT Recruiting Year There is no qestion that the Bulldogs have some very talented group of upperclassmen heading into the 2013 Season.  The team is headlined by juniors and seniors - Aaron Murray, Malcolm Mitchell, Chris Burnette, Kenarious Gates, Garrison Smith, Amarlo Herrera and Damian Swann.  However, the...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update After 10 Days at Saint Simons and Saint Augustine for my wedding and honeymoon I am back!  It was a great time and as difficult as it was I was able to meet my wife's one request.  She said no computers/blogs for those 10 days which I think is a reasonable request.  So since we have been back and...

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...

Recruiting Recap! This is a recruiting recap after players have completed their first full season in Athens and have a spring practice practice under their belts.  The “2012 #” is what they ranked in UGA's class by the 247 Consensus Rankings in 2012.  The “NOW #” is where I would rank them as of this moment....

FINALLY Healthy and Ready to Make Impact Coming out of high school T.J. Stripling was rated as one of the Top 100 players in the nation by all of the major recruiting services.  His junior year in HS he had 14 sacks and as a senior he had 21 sacks.  There were incredibly high expectations when he arrived in Athens and during fall...

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...

Mason SHAKES Rust - Ramsey Shows TIME is Needed The scrimage that was supposed to be held this past Saturday but was canceled due to the heavy rain storms and moved to yesterday.  Those extra days  made Brice Ramsey wait for his first time to compete full speed 11-on-11 inside Sanford Stadium.  I am sure he had some butterflies and was extra...

ENCOURAGING for Sterling Bailey, DISCOURAGING for Ray Drew?? As always in spring practice there are players making significant moves towards playing time.  Last year it was running back where Keith Marshall showed that he would undoubtedly be an immediate impact player out of high school.  This year it looks like it is along the defensive line where Chris...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #2 - Tray Matthews - FS - 6'0 195 Putting a true freshmen as the #2 player of the most important spring camps?  Absolutely!  Tray Matthews is that important moving forward for the Bulldogs heading into the 2013 season.  For Grantham's defense to play up to it's potential he needs a reliable, ball-hawking free safety that will put...

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...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #6 - Ray Drew - DE - 6'5 290 It is Ray Drew time in Athens.  Coming out of HS Ray Drew was the can't miss 5-star prospect but in his first two seasons his impact has barely been felt.  As a true freshmen he was in between the OLB and DE position, the dreaded tweener.  Then, during his sophomore season he was making 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 - #9 - Xzavier Ward - OT - 6'7 295 A lot of people saw the name Xzavier Ward and were probably thinking, is he serious?  My answer is yes.  If you remember, Xzavier Ward was a late addition to the 2011 Recruiting Class out of Moultrie, GA.  He was a long, lean, athletic offensive tackle prospects that had a lingering question on...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #13 - Josh Dawson - OLB - 6'4 250 There is nobody on the UGA roster that can replace Jarvis Jones.  Jones was a special talent that was simply the perfect fit for Todd Grantham's defense.  Jordan Jenkins will try to fill that role but the position opposite him is wide open.  Headed into fall camp the competition is wide open but...

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...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #17 - Sterling Bailey - DE - 6'3 295 Bailey was recruited to play OLB out of HS however once he got involved in a college weight/nutrition program it became clear that he was going to continue to grow and move to defensive end.  As a true freshmen he redshirted because of shoulder surgery and during his redshirt freshmen season he...

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...

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...

Richt Made the RIGHT Choice! Yesterday, Mark Richt made the announcement that Malcom Mitchell will play receiver next year for UGA.  That was one of the leading questions fans had entering the offseason.  UGA will be losing 4 senior players in the secondary and will be losing 2 senior wide receivers.  However, Georgia has...

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...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - What We are MISSING In watching this weekends game against Alabama it became apparent what the Dawgs are missing on the current roster.  The need is two fold - (1) Quality depth in the Front 3 and (2) Size at Middle Linebacker.  It is something the Bulldogs can address with the 2013 Recruting Class if they finish...

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...

Is GURSHALL Ready For the Big Stage? I have a lot of confidence in the Bulldogs offense this weekend.  There is a reason why Mike Bobo is one of five Finalists for the Frank Broyles Award given annually to the nation's best assistant coach.  His name is Todd Gurley.  With Gurley's emergence this season as a true freshmen and his...

MUST READ!! The Enemy's Perspective When the matchup became official between UGA and Alabama in the SEC Championship game I immediately contacted a good friend who closely follows the Tide and asked him to write an article on the game.  He wrote an excellent article that I thought I would share with you today.  It is a...

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...

A Team of DESTINY! The motto for the Georgia Bulldog football team heading into this season was "Our Team, Our Time, No Regrets".  Heading into the season it appeared that there were at least a few players who had regrets because they had earned suspensions that would harm...

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...

Recruiting Rankings Mean NOTHING! Recruiting Rankings Mean NOTHING!! This time of year I always like to look back at last season's top rated prospects and see how they have made the transition from the High School to College level.  It amazing to see the results and this year more than anything it shows you that...

Harvey-Clemons Position CHANGE! According to Todd Grantham Josh Harvey-Clemons began to get some reps at outside linebacker in practice today.  That is a very interesting move for him to make at this point in the season.  Thus far this season Harvey-Clemons has spent a majority of his time at the "star" position and at...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Auburn Prediction Tomorrow the Dawgs head to Jordan-Hare Stadium to take on the Auburn Tigers.  Auburn is 2-7 and still has not won an SEC game this season while they Bulldogs are 6-1 in the SEC and hoping to lock up a bid to the SEC Championship game.  However, the game is starting...

Gurley Playing Through INJURY Through nine games this season Todd Gurley has 138 carries for 857 yards and 10 TD's.  That is an average of 95.2 yards per game for a true freshmen in the SEC playing behind a relatively inexperienced offensive line.  However, with his bruising running style some nagging injuries are beginning...

Who Will Step Up After DEVASTATING Injury In this weekend's game against Ole Miss the Dawgs suffered another big injury in their receiving core.  Marlon Brown who was having a breakout senior season tore his ACL which has put an end to his UGA career.  The 6'5 225 pound receiver was UGA's best run blocking receiver and was also...

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...

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....

He Shouldn’t Even Have on a Uniform this Weekend! As of Wednesday afternoon's practice Jarvis Jones has still not practiced since the game against South Carolina.  As you all know Jarvis has been struggling with a groin injury all season that has already caused him to miss one game.  Now, on top of that groin injury, Jarvis is struggling with a...

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...

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...

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 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...

Can UGA Become ELITE? - Part I - Quarterbacks This weekend when the Georgia Bulldogs went to Columbia, SC for a showdown against the Gamecocks it turned out to be a beatdown.  The South Carolina Gamecocks were better than Georgia in every aspect of the game.  Since we have a bye week this week I am going to go through the roster...

WEAK Link on Offensive Line Exposed This weekend we found out that against an elite defensive line the UGA offensive line is still a liability.  Particularly, the left tackle position with Kenarious Gates.  I am not a big fan of calling out players but Kenarious Gates has no business playing LT in the SEC.  Jadeveon Clowney...

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...

Alvin Kamara UPDATE There has been a lot of talk surrounding UGA's running back recruiting due to the success of Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall so far this season.  Where freshmen coming in and having success if usually a big selling point for a coaching staff to HS seniors, the success of young running backs can...

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.

If UGA Loses This Matchup They WILL Lose THIS Weekend This weekend when the Bulldogs travel to Columbia there are a lot of important matchups across the field for both teams.  You have the South Carolina cornerbacks against the Georgia wide receivers.  You have the UGA inside linebackers having to tackle Marcus Lattimore.  You have the South...

Dawgs Offense Suffers HUGE Blow! In practice yesterday the Dawgs lost a HUGE member of their offense that was a major reason for their success on this young season, Michael Bennett.  Bennett had 24 catches for 345 yards and 4 TD's on the season and now he is done for the season.  Even more devastating for the Dawgs is that he...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA’s Top Remaining Recruiting Targets As UGA continues with it successful 2013 recruiting season the coaches continue to hit the recruiting trail and go hard after several top prospects in an attempt to fill out this class.  Below is a list of the prospects that UGA is pursuing the hardest at the moment to close out...

Lattimore is Staying at Motel 6 This weekend when the the Gamecocks head to Columbia the Dawgs defense will be looking to recover from the shredding that they took at the hands of Tennessee.  In order to have a better outing the Dawgs will need to contain Marcus Lattimore who has torched the Bulldogs in his first two career...

ImYourHuckleberry - SEC East Power Rankings (7) Kentucky - The Wildcats put up a fight early in the game against the Gamecocks but got steamrolled in the second half.  The Wildcats lack depth along their entire roster and don't have any real playmakers.  They will be lucky to win an SEC game this season.

The RELUCTANT Superstar My admiration for Todd Gurley is only growing every week, not only due to his performance on the field but also with the way he conducts himself off the field.  Maybe it is because I am so tired of the screw-ups we have had at tailback lately with Ealey, King, and Crowell - but Gurley and...

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.

Two BEST Offenses in the SEC Do Battle Last night in Athens you saw the two best offenses in the SEC do battle.  After five games of the season and having seen every SEC team play several times there is no question in my mind that UGA and Tennessee have the best offenses.  Most importantly both teams have quarterbacks that are...

This Game is SPECIAL for One Dawg In HS Marlon Brown was a 6'5 205 can't miss 5-star player.  Coming out of Harding Academy in Memphis, TN his decision came down to UGA and Tennessee.  In Memphis there was a lot of pressure to go Knoxville and join the Vols but when it came to Signing Day, Marlon innked with the Georgia...

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...

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...

Just Think...There Was Talk of Playing HIM at Safety!! I was going back looking at some articles from the offseason from various websites and in the summer months there were multiple reporters and "insiders" talking about the potential that Todd Gurley would play safety his freshmen year because he played it some in HS and UGA's lack of depth at the...

You Are WITNESS to Something SPECIAL! Todd Gurley continued his impressive freshmen campaign against Vanderbilt with another monster performance.  Gurley finished the night with 16 carries for 130 yards with an 8.1 yard per carry average.  He now has 44 carries for 406 yards on the season along with 6 TD's.  You also can't forget...

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 - 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...

Just How DAMN Good is Gurley/Marshall Combo? I got started thinking last night about how impressive a start Todd Gurley is off to at this point of his freshmen season.  To prove how special he is been lets take a quick look at his statistics.  Todd Gurley has 28 carries for 276 yards and 4 TD's.  That is a 9.9 average per carry and that...

ImYourHuckleberry - MASSIVE Recruiting Update - Part 1 A majority of the time I write up my recruiting updates the focus is on players that are not yet committed to UGA.  Today I am going to do something a little different and take a look at the players that are already committed to UGA and update their progress this season and their commitment...

What Combination Gives UGA Offensive Line BEST Chance for Success With the suspension of Kolton Houston and the injuries UGA has faced early in this season that has led me to the question of what offensive line combination would be best for UGA to have on the field this season.  For the purposes of this blog I will assume that in a three weeks when we play...

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...

Bright Futures or Replaced by 2013 Recruiting Class? The theme of many of my blogs today is the opportunity that is available for many of the young guys to get a chance to see the field this weekend.  Obviously I am assuming that the Dawgs will show up to play and have a substantial lead early in this game.  If the starters come out and perform as...

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...

Jordan Jenkins to Play KEY Role Going Forward After the dominating performance by Jarvis Jones against Missouri last night you can bet teams will re-evaluate their protections schemes in order to figure out a way to slow him down.  In the second half Missouri attempted to slide their protection to Jarvis's side and that worked for a little...

ImYourHuckleberry - Grading the Dawgs Week 2 v. Mizzou Quarterbacks [B+] - Honestly I think Aaron Murray had a very good game minus the one bad interception.  He was a little amped up at the beginning of the game but as he settled in he made a lot of excellent throws.  His completion...

This Dawgs D is Special!! Watching the Dawgs defense play I was so proud of them. When you take a closer look at what they did against Missouri it is incredibly impressive.  We had Malcolm Mitchell getting his first start at CB.  Redshirt freshmen Devin Bowman getting his 2nd start at CB.  Damian Swann getting his 2nd...

Missouri News & Updates - The Enemy’s Perspective I thought I would link the articles that the media in Missouri has been writing about the upcoming game.  It is always fun to see the oppositions perspective especially when it is such an unkown opponent like Missouri.  So below here are the articles: Missouri Player's Tweets and...

A Missouri Fan’s Opinion on The UGA Game I have written a blog or two on here over the last month about about the upcoming battle between Missouri and UGA. Now that the game is drawing near and things are becoming more clear I wanted to share my opinion with Bulldog fans. 1) Zou Offensive Line v. UGA Defensive...

Derrick Henry - Another School Backing Off? Derrick Henry suddenly finds himself in quite the predicament.  It has been clear since his decommitment from UGA that Alabama has been his leader and he has wanted to play RB for the Crimson Tide.  However, that opportunity may be disappearing quickly as well.  Talking to a few Alabama beat...

Missouri is In TROUBLE While UGA has been very fortunate to stay healthy during fall camp, Missouri has not had the same fate, especially along the offensive line.  Senior Right Guard, Jack Meiners has a sprained knee and will miss the season opener but they hope he will be back for UGA.  Their starting senior Left...

ImYourHuckleberry - Bold Predictions This is a season of opportunity for UGA. There are questions surrounding every team in the conference, including UGA, but UGA may be the most equipped to answer those questions. A 3rd year starter at quarterback combined with the most experienced defense in the SEC could make for a special...

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...

Important Scrimmage Tonight for UGA Tonight is the 3rd scrimmage of fall practice for UGA.  This is the 3rd and final "full" scrimmage.  There will be another one more scrimmage in fall practice but it will be more of a situational scrimmage.  This will be a big scrimmage for younger players and those fighting for playing time to...

UGA’s Approach to Recruiting Alvin Kamara As anyone who follows UGA recruiting knows, the Dawgs have put a lot of eggs into the basket of Alvin Kamara.  Since the decommitment of Derrick Henry and the dismissal of Isaiah Crowell the Dawgs have only picked up the intensity and effort in their recruitment of Kamara.  Alongside Laremy...

Quarterback Problem in Athens Aaron Murray is entering his redshirt junior season and 3rd season as UGA's starting quarterback.  Hutson Mason is a true junior who has a redshirt season available.  Christian Lemay is a redshirt freshmen who has not seen action in a real football game in over 30 months.  You would think the...

Ray Drew - Boom or Bust? When UGA signed Ray Drew fans were beyond excited.  UGA had just signed the "Pastor of Disaster" who was going to come in and wreak havoc immediately at the college level.  In his freshmen season Drew did not see the field too often and when he did he struggled.  This was in large part...

UGA’s Best Recruiter? BIG Surprise! When UGA hired Will Friend as offensive line their was a collective - who? - amongst the Bulldog Nation. Since that time Will Friend had 3 lineman drafted in the 2012 NFL Draft and is putting together what could be the best offensive line recruiting class in the nation for 2013. It is incredible...

Top 10 Players of UGA’s Camp 10)  Todd Gurley - Showed off in the scrimmage his combination of physicality and speed.  He has all of the tools to be a running back in the SEC.  Shawn Williams described his "beast" mode and says he reminded him a little bit of Trent Richardson.  If only we are so...

Fall Camp Gave HUGE Answers! On Saturday the UGA team completed fall camp and had their first day off to rest and recover yesterday.  I doubt the coaches had the same time to relax as they were likely using the day off to evaluate where the team stands and the weaknesses that must be worked on.  Below I will tell you the...

Fall Practice - Two UGA Freshmen Could Surprise Everybody is talking about Keith Marshall, Todd Gurley, John Theus, Jordan Jenkins, and Josh Harvey-Clemons and rightfully so.  They are big time recruits that have the opportunity to play at positions where UGA needs immediate depth.  However, there are two players that I believe will have a...

Harvey-Clemons will play in the Secondary According to the Red & Black Josh Harvey-Clemons is practicing as a defensive back for Todd Grantham and his defense.  I had proposed this in a blog yesterday morning before the first practice of the season because when the players weights were listed Harvey-Clemons was still listed at 207....

Harvey-Clemons following Ogletree’s Path to Stardom? There is no question Josh Harvey-Clemons athletic ability.  At 6'4 with extremely long arms and incredible speed he has the potential to be a dominant defender on the SEC level.  However, in order to become a star linebacker he is going to need to add a considerable amount of weight.  In the...

John Theus - Your Time is Now Now that the Kolton Houston situation has largely been cleared up it is now apparent that John Theus will play a very significant role on the offensive line this season.  If Houston would have been ruled eligible to play I believe that he would have been the starter at the beginning of the...

Incredible Weight Gains/Loss on UGA Roster Below are some of the weight updates given by UGA Damian Swann up to 189 - Gain of 10 pounds John Jenkins up to 358 Alec Ogletree up to 232 Bacarri Rambo lost 8 pounds down to 210 Mike Gilliard up to 230 Ray Drew up to 284...

Derrick Henry - Cause & Effect As I wrote yesterday, Derrick Henry is now planning on visiting Alabama the weekend of June 8th.  Previous to his current flirtation he has been taking visits to Tennessee.  Also, he has always said that the Florida Gators were his favorite team growing up.  Somehow in the midst of...

New Look Special Teams in 2012 WILL Be Better UGA may not have made any coaching changes in terms of personnel for special teams heading into the 2012 season but it is obvious that it was a major concern of the coaches during spring practice.  The coaches have made some formation changes and some personnel decisions that will make the...

Garcia to Florida = Tunsil to UGA? The offensive line transfer from Maryland, Max Garcia made the surprising decision to transfer to Florida instead of UGA.  Many thought that it was a lock that this ALL-ACC tackle would choose the Dawgs because it was very close to home.  However, by picking the Gators a couple things become...

Kenarious Gates Over to Right Tackle In the ideal world it appears that Mark Richt and Will Friend would like to see Kenarious Gates move from left tackle over to right tackle in the fall.  That would mean two things for UGA – (1) John Theus comes in and is an impact player like Sturdivant was as a true freshmen and (2) the UGA...

UGA Receiver READY to Shine in 2012 He came to UGA as a 5-star recruit.  The season before he came to UGA a true freshmen named A.J. Green had just shown what type an impact a talented receiver can make.  The expectations were through the roof, he was going to be the 2nd coming of A.J. Green.  However, now heading into...

Why Georgia WILL WIN the First 4 Games!! As of this moment UGA will be missing Sanders Commings, Branden Smith, Bacarri Rambo, and Alec Ogletree for the first two games of the season.  Bacarri Rambo will likely have to sit out two additional games.  Those are 4 starters on the UGA defense so how can UGA possibly win their first four...

Why Georgia WILL WIN the First 4 Games in 2012 As of this moment UGA will be missing Sanders Commings, Branden Smith, Bacarri Rambo, and Alec Ogletree for the first two games of the season.  Bacarri Rambo will likely have to sit out two additional games.  Those are 4 starters on the UGA defense so how can UGA possibly win their first four...

Jordan Jenkins Already Having IMPACT on UGA In spring practice UGA is experimenting with various position moves especially from outside linebacker moving to defensive end.  Ray Drew is approximately 275 pounds and is making the transition to a full-time defensive end.  Sterling Bailey is around 270 pounds and is likely to see most of his...

The Next Great UGA Safety Bacarri Rambo and Shawn Williams are one of the top safety tandems in the country.  Both are seniors and will be playing on Sunday's after they complete their senior seasons in 2012.  That invariably begs the question of who will take their place after this season?  Who will step in and play if...

Will Aaron Murray FINALLY Win the Big Game in 2012 On the front page of ESPN yesterday they had an interview with Aaron Murray that was conducted by Edward Aschoff.  It really was a great article because it probed into the psyche of Murray.  It talked about the statistics and how he has broken nearly every freshmen and sophomore quarterback...

A Prediction Come True On January 15th I posted the following blog: Every offseason after spring semester we see several players that have not received enough playing time, have struggling grades, or want to get closer to family – transfer from UGA to a smaller Division I-AA school....

ImYourHuckleberry - IMPORTANT Spring Position Battles #2 & #3 Tailback I feel confident heading into the spring practice that a 100% healthy Isaiah Crowell is the will be #1 on the depth chart.  The question is who will emerge to contribute as well.  You have experienced seniors in Carlton Thomas and Richard Samuel...

ImYourHuckleberry - IMPORTANT Spring Position Battles!! #2 & #3 Tailback I feel confident heading into the spring practice that a 100% healthy Isaiah Crowell is the will be #1 on the depth chart.  The question is who will emerge to contribute as well.  You have experienced seniors in Carlton Thomas and Richard Samuel...

Who Will Play CB for UGA on Opening Day? Sanders Commings is already suspended for UGA's first two games next season.  UGA policy says that Branden Smith could receive up to a two game suspension for his first drug-related offense.  The duration of the suspension is up to Mark Richt.  I guarantee you that Mark Richt will suspend him...

DAWG FANS - Mark Richt CLEARLY Knows What He is Doing! There have been so many questions hovering around the UGA program since the disastrous 6-7 record to finish the 2010 season.  There was the question of whether our Strength & Conditioning Program was good enough?  That question has been answered by the Coach Richt's promotion of Coach T....

How Good Can Isaiah Crowell Be? With the recent interview of Arthur Lynch it has been very refreshing to hear that Isaiah Crowell has made some big strides as a person during this offseason. When he was first on campus Lynch acknowledged that they had to drag him to workouts. I remember at that point Crowell still had a...

Dawg to Win the Heisman on the 30th Anniversary of Herschel? In 1982, Herschel Walker became the 2nd Heisman Trophy winner from the University of Georgia.  Frank Sinkwich is UGA's only other Heisman winner taking home the trophy in 1942.  UGA seems to have something with winning the Heisman on years that end with a 2.  So, what are the odds...

Defense Defense and Some More....DEFENSE! As the 2013 recruiting class begins to take shape it is clear that UGAs #1 priority is defense, and rightfully so.  UGA will lose anywhere between 10-16 players that are on the 2-deep depth chart next season.  Therefore, UGA will need to replenish the defense not only with a lot of bodies but...

UGA’s Biggest Area of Concern in Spring Practice Heading into the 2012 season UGA is viewed as a consensus Top 10 team.  They are returning 9 starters on defense and nearly every skill position player on offense.  Many people are saying that the biggest area of concern for UGA is the offensive line during Spring Practice.  While that is an...

UGA in Top 2 For One’s of Nation’s Premier 2013 Tackles Laremy Tunsil a 6'6 285 pound offensive tackle has two leaders right now in his recruitment.  UGA and Florida.  The two teams have been recruiting him very hard and have been in constant contact with him and his high school coaches.  When you hear the name Tunsil think John Theus.  The two are...

A Name You May Not Have Heard, But You Should Learn Dominque Threatt Dominique is a 6'2 315 noseguard.  With the likely departures of John Jenkins and Kwame Geathers UGA will need to add at least one more noseguard in this class in addition to Chris Mayes.  Dominique is a very impressive looking man with the perfect...

Grantham’s Chance to show Smart Who His Daddy Is In the 2012 recruiting class Todd Grantham made a huge impression on Jordan Jenkins and his family.  The impression was so great that UGA was able to do the unthinkable – steal Jordan Jenkins from right under Alabama's nose.  Alabama had been after Jenkins for almost two years and were rolling...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Daily Recruiting Update - 1/31/12 Sheldon Dawson Commits to the DAWGS!On Monday, Sheldon Dawson called Mark Richt and officially committed to the DAWGS! This is a huge commitment for the Dawgs. Dawson is a 5’10 185 pound CB that is very gifted physically. He is very strong for his side and has 4.39 speed and an...

True Freshmen Starters at BOTH Offensive Tackle Positions in 2012? UGA already has the commitment of John Theus, a 6'6 310 pound monster, who many are already penciling in to be the starter at left tackle next season as a true freshmen. John is being mentioned as a starter because of his football IQ, size, strength, and athleticism. He reminds many of Trindon...

Redshirt Freshmen Primed for Breakout Season in 2012 Every year it appears that UGA has at least one player who breaks out and becomes a star. Last season it was Malcolm Mitchell and Jarvis Jones – who will it be this season? My early prediction of a name to watch in spring practice is wide receiver – Justin Scott-Wesley.Scott-Wesley is...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting State of the Union Since the State of the Union is tonight I figured I would give a “Recruiting State of the Union”. It is only 9 days before Signing Day so we need to take stock of where we are at this point in the process. Our class is currently ranked #18 by Scout.com – #19 by Rivals.com – #5 by ESPN. That is a...

ImYourHuckleberry - Brandon Greene Prediction Brandon Greene is a 6’6 295 tackle from Ellenwood, Georgia. He is a big strong man that has a future at either left or right tackle on the next level. Brandon is currently an Alabama commit but there has been news that his commitment has been wavering lately. Now, let’s go into a little more...

Why 2012 is Mark Richt’s Best Chance at BCS Title In 2008 UGA opened up the season on the front page of Sports Illustrated with a picture of Knowshon Moreno, Matthew Stafford, and Danelle Ellerbee. They were picked Preseason #1 in the country for the first time in the history of the Georgia Bulldogs. Also, they were viewed as the most talented...

Keith Marshall’s Dad is Not Happy! Some good news for UGA fans comes in on Keith Marshall again. Only two days after Todd Gurley was named the most improved HS player in the country by Rivals.com, Keith Marshall was upgraded to the #5 player in the entire nation on ESPN.com. Apparently during the practices at the Under Armour game...

Carlton Thomas to Leave Before 2012 Season? Every offseason after spring semester we see several players that have not received enough playing time, have struggling grades, or want to get closer to family – transfer from UGA to a smaller Division I-AA school. Unfortunately, for UGA the attrition has been very large the last several years....

Why UGA Will Have the #1 Defense in the Nation in 2012 With the announcement today that Bacarri Rambo will be returning to UGA for his senior season, and rumors that Cornelius Washington, Shawn Williams, and Branden Smith will follow suit – the UGA defense has everything it needs to be the best defense in the country in 2012. The main reason why is...

ImYourHuckleberry - Daily Recruiting Update - 1/11/12 Biggest Impact Recruit Next Season Over the last several days I have been asked to pick a player from the 2012 “Ring Team” that I believe will have the biggest impact on the UGA football team next season. While the recruiting class is far from finished and UGA is soon to add several...

ImYourHuckleberry - Jordan Jenkins Prediction Jordan Jenkins is set to make his decision Monday evening between 7-8 PM on Fox Sports. Here is my take on his recruitment:Jordan Jenkins is a very difficult prospect to predict. He weighs in at 6’3 246 pounds which is ideal for the outside linebacker position in the 3-4 or a speed...

ImYourHuckleberry - Daily Recruiting Update - 1/5/12 Tonight at 7:30 on ESPN the Under Armour All-American game will showcase some of the most talented high school football players in the country.

Gator Players and Fans Realizing Meyer is a Liar!! Reports run rampant that former UF coach Urban Meyer has already interviewed for the job at Arizona and is set to take the job at Ohio State. Meyer said on ESPN Saturday that he has not been offered or accepted any job.Hopefully he is telling the truth, because if he isn't Gators fans...

The Secret for Aaron Murray to Have a Bounceback Game Coach Richt and Coach Bobo spoke this week about the interceptions not all being the result of bad decisions by Aaron Murray. They said it was a combination of that along with bad route running and missed assignments in pass protection. Those three factors have combined to lead several of Murray’s...

UGA v. Ole Miss - Key Matchup The key matchup in this game is the UGA offensive line going up against the Ole Miss defensive line. With the injuries along the offensive line at UGA, true freshmen David Andrews and Watts Dantzler may be pressed into service. Regardless, of who plays along the offensive line they need to get a...

Shawn Williams is The Next Thomas Davis This season UGA has had an unfortunate run of injuries at the middle linebacker position. First, Alec Ogletree against Boise State and then Christian Robinson at Boise State. It looks like neither of the opening day starters will be in the lineup for the next three weeks. Christian Robinson...

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,...

Will a Freshmen Be UGAs Leader? Over the past 10 years since Mark Richt’s arrival UGA has produced many NFL players. In fact, UGA has produced more NFL players than Alabama, Florida, and Auburn. The only team in the SEC that has produced more NFL players is LSU. During that time period all four of those teams have won BCS...

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...

Losing Caleb King Won’t Hurt the Running Game It has been all speculation up until this point but if UGA were to lose Caleb King for the 2011 season due to academics it would not really hurt the running game. Boo Malcome is going to be a punishing back between the tackles that will wear down defenses. Carlton Thomas can come in as a change of...

Change is Coming Between the Hedges – Part 3 – Branden Smith to Offense 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...

Matchup By Position vs. Georgia Tech Quarterback – GeorgiaTevin Washington has done a solid job filling in for GT at the quarterback position for an injured Josh Nesbitt. However, he is not as physical of a runner and is not a good passer either. As long as Aaron Murray is taking the snaps for UGA unless it is against Cam...

2010-11-12 – Matchup by Position for UGA vs. Auburn Quarterback – AuburnAuburn has the definite advantage at quarterback. Cam Newton is one of the best quarterbacks in the country and is an outstanding playmaker. Aaron Murray is the likely freshmen of the year in the SEC and has great potential but it will take time for him to reach the...

Impact Player for UGA vs. Auburn Alec Ogletree began his true freshmen season as a special team’s standout and as he learned the defense has earned more playing time. Last week, against Idaho State, Ogletree earned the first start of his career. Against Auburn the competition will be much more difficult and he will face a huge...

Key Matchup for UGA vs. Auburn The key matchup for the UGA vs. Auburn game this weekend is clear. How will UGA’s offensive line hold-up against a solid Auburn defensive line? If UGA’s offensive line can hold their own UGA’s offense will have an opportunity to be successful and put points on the board. Why is their play...

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...

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...

#77 Trinton Sturdivant Sturdivant is the X-Factor for the UGA offensive line this year. He is the most naturally gifted offensive lineman to come through UGA in quite a while. As a true freshmen he was a starter at LT in the SEC and only allowed 2 sacks the entire season. If finally healthy once again...

85 Days Until Kickoff: #85 Derrick Lott Derrick Lott missed his freshmen season after ankle surgery in September of 2009. However, had he been healthy he most likely would not have seen much of the field with the depth in front of him including Jeff Owens, Geno Atkins, Kade Weston, D’Angelo Tyson, and Abry Jones. Last...

94 Days Until Kickoff: #94 D’Angelo Tyson In my humble opinion D’Angelo Tyson is probably the most important player for the Dawgs on defense in the 2010 season. In the 3-4 defense it is important to have edge rushers but also a nose tackle who can get some penetration up the middle and command double teams. If the nose is getting whipped...

98 Days Until Kickoff: Incoming Freshmen Marcus Thornton With UGA’s switch to the 3-4 incoming freshmen Marcus Thornton will most likely be redshirted his freshmen season. At 6’1 280 pounds he will need to add some weight and continue to work in the weight room in order to be an effective nose tackle. However, he will be a very valuable member of the...

Top 8 Team LB Depth Charts for the SEC 2010 1) Auburn TigersAuburn returns an excellent linebacker corp from 2009. Led by Craig Stevens and Josh Bynes they have speed and are solid tacklers. This veteran group should be the leaders and make it tough for opposing offenses to run the ball.2) Georgia Bulldogs

Top 8 Team OL Depth Charts in the SEC for 2010 (1) Alabama Crimson TideAlabama has had the best offensive line in the SEC the past 3 years and I see no reason for that trend to end in 2010. They are big physical and play with a mean streak. If they play well again and open up holes for the Alabama running backs they will be very...

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 RB Depth Charts in the SEC for 2010 (1) Alabama – Mark Ingram / Trent Richardson / Eddie LacyAlabama is absolutely loaded at the running back position again. The returning Heisman winner Ingram is probably not even the best running back on the team. Richardson should break out this season and I fully expect for both...

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.

Tuesday Thoughts – Versatility of the Tight Ends Going into the season one of UGAs obvious positions of strength is at tight end. With Orson Charles, Aron White, Arthur Lynch, and Bruce Figgens there is no better collection of tight ends in the country. With Georgia’s lack of depth at wide receiver the tight ends will be an invaluable part of...

Sunday Speculation - Mettenberger Dismissal I am disappointed to see that Zach Mettenberger made another mistake that has resulted in his dismissal from the Bulldogs. With the way he played in the spring game I thought there was a chance before the season was over he would end up being the starting QB. His size and strength fit perfect with...

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 Preview - Tight Ends Orson Charles – 6'3 240 Last season we saw how incredibly talented Orson Charles is. UGA has really become Tight End U over the last few years and Orson Charles will proudly carry on that tradition. When you have a young quarterback it is a great asset to have a tight end as talented as Charles...

2010 Spring Preview - Wide Receivers A.J. Green – 6'4 210 A.J. Green is the best receiver in UGA History and THE BEST receiver in college football. In his first two seasons at UGA he has 109 Receptions – 1771 Yards – 14 Touchdowns. We all know that he is naturally an incredibly gifted athlete with amazing ball skills. However,...

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....

5 Questions for the 2010 Off-Season 1) How will Trindon Sturdivant recover from his second consecutive season ended by an torn ACL? Trindon Sturdivant is probably still the best option for UGA at the left tackle position going into next year. Unfortunately, his knee has not been able to hold up for more than one game since his...

Will a LEADER please step up for UGA?? It does not matter if how much talent we have. It does not matter if Mark Richt takes over playcalling duties. It does not matter if we fire Willie Martinez. Unless this team develops leadership from the players next year we will struggle once again. In 1980 we had Buck Belue, Lindsay Scott,...
