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...

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...

#59 - Jordan Jenkins - Review & Looking Forward Jenkins was the most underrated and under-appreciated player by the fan base and pundits in general in 2014.  Jordan was the Bulldogs best player and nobody else was even close.  However, it seems that he has been overshadowed by the flashier Leonard Floyd and now Lorenzo Carter.  Each...

ImYourHucklelberry - Mock 2016 Recruiting Class This is never going to be 100% correct because recruiting is very far from and exact science.  If you did not learn that this year you never will.  But I looked back at the just for fun way to early predictions I made last year a week after signing day and got 19 of the 27 UGA signed correct....

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...

#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...

Pruitt Going for MORE SIZE Up Front in 2015? There is no doubt that the UGA defense made tremendous strides on defense between 2013 and 2014. The UGA pass defense improved tremendously as did the Dawgs ability to force turnovers and prevent big plays. However, the one clear weakness of this defense in 2014 was the ability to stop the power...

A Good Problem for Pruitt Jeremy Pruitt's job just got a whole lot easier and a whole lot more difficult at the same time. A few weeks ago many believed it was possible, if not likely, that Jordan Jenkins and Leonard Floyd would opt for the NFL. Their decision to return along with the emergence of Lorenzo Carter late in...

An UP & DOWN Week for the Dawgs Recruiting This week was not an ideal week for the Bulldogs when the nation's top recruit, Josh Sweat, chose FSU over UGA and Virginia Tech. Days later another top prospect for the Bulldogs, Albert Huggins, chose Clemson over UGA. The Bulldog's momentum in recruiting seemed to be slowing a bit. However, on...

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

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

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

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Clemson Prediction! If the Gamecocks v. Aggies game proved anything at all last night it proved that all we have been doing this off-season is speculating and who knows what is truly going to happen when these UGA and Clemson take the field on Saturday night.  Everyone and I mean everyone was picking the Gamecocks...

UGA Linebacking Corps Gets Props from ESPN ESPN says if you were building the perfect roster you would use the Georgia Bulldogs Linebacking Corps:"Last season, the Bulldogs had to replace a pair of first-round draft picks in addition to their No. 7 and No. 11 tacklers from 2012. The defense struggled, as it was...

ImYourHuckleberry - 5 BOLD Predictions for 2014 It doesn't get any more simple then this, 5 Bold Predictions for UGA in 2014: UGA leads the SEC in Turnover Margin - Hutson Mason takes care of the ball and our tailbacks don't fumble, plus Pruitt will put our secondary in position to make plays and we have around 20...

ImYourHuckleberry - Dawgs Building STRONG Foundation Since Dawg Night the Georgia Bulldogs have had their most succesful recruiting run in Mark Richt's tenure.  On Saturday, July 19th the Bulldogs landed 5-Star,  potential superstar QB Jacob Eason along with 5-Star monster offensive tackle Ben Cleveland for the Class of 2016.  Twenty-four days...

ImYourHuckleberry - Lorenzo Carter MUST Be ON the Field?!? It is definitely very early in camp but one thing is for certain, Lorenzo Carter is already living up to his billing as a physical freak.  We all knew he was a freak athlete in HS when he was standing in at 6'6 228 pounds.  However, when you watched him play as a senior in HS you saw holes in his...

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 - HUGE Recruiting Update! After Dawg Night things are really beginning to take shape in the Class of 2015 and 2016 as well.  There have been more questions answered then questions raised this past week and things are beginning to shape up incredibly well for the Bulldogs so lets go to the update:QB...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE 2015 Recruiting Update! I've been doing a lot of research over the last month on the Class of 2015.  Taking into account the UGA depth chart, class breakdown and those prospects that UGA is recruiting a clear picture is beginning to shape up of what the Bulldogs are attempting to achieve.  Below I will let you in on...

ImYourHuckleberry - 6 Most Athletically GIFTED Players at UGA 6 Days Until Spring Practice!!#6 - Shaq Wiggins - Watching Shaq Wiggins last season it blew me away to watch how athletic he is.  While he may not have great top end speed or a 40+ inch vertical he does have one incredible athletic skill -...

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 - #1 Key to UGA Offseason In my review of the season and the roster I see so much potential in the roster that UGA has put together in Athens.  There are players that are capable of elevating their game to another level on this roster and it is up to the S&C program and the coaches to develop them over these next 8 1/2...

ImYourHuckleberry - 2014 Defense - Who Starts? Who Sits? SDE - Sterling Bailey - Status:  AverageSterling Bailey was one of the breakout players in 2013.  He showed good athleticism and was also stout at the point of attack.  However he will face a lot of competition in the fall from guys like John Atkins and Toby...

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

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

Could UGA Transition to a 4-3 Defense? I have been asked multiple times over the last couple weeks about if UGA were to decide to part ways this offseason with Grantham and bring in a coach that wants to play the 4-3, would UGA be able to adapt with the personnel that they currently have on campus.Below is how I would...

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

A Look into 2014 - PROJECTED Depth Chart QB Name

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...

CHANGES Coming on DEFENSE? On the defensive side of the ball all has been quiet publicly since the loss to Missouri from the players and the position coaches.  Todd Grantham and Mark Richt have both expressed their disappointment in the way the unit has performed thus far this season and the lack of progress but have not...

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...

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...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - 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 – 5 KEY Matchups v. LSU #1 – LSU Left Tackle & Left Guard v. UGA Defensive End & Nose Guard – LSU loves to run the ball to the left side on offense behind La'El Collins and the monstrous Vadal Alexander.  Those two young men are huge and they are punishing run blockers.  So far this season LSU is...

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

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...

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

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...

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...

Harvey-Clemmons SUSPENSION Brutal I am not going to sit here behind a computer and rag on Connor Norman.  That is not what I do.  Connor fought his hardest for 60 minutes and did a nice job  given his abilities.  But once Clemson decided to pick on him they...

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...

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

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

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...

Time to Push PANIC Button! Yesterday's practice now in the backseat, the Bulldogs now have only 11 days until they face the Clemson Tigers under the bright lights in a Primetime game in Death Valley.  Much of the team has been getting healthy over the last week with OLB's James DeLoach, Leonard Floyd and Davin Bellamy all...

Wednesday NIGHT GAME Between the Hedges Tomorrow is setting up to probably be the most important practice of fall practice.  The Bulldogs first scrimmaged a week ago and the team was just coming off a two-a-day practice and had been grinding through physical camp practices which led to a bit of a fatigued and lackluster performance....

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...

POLL: Biggest Impact from Class of 2013

The Coaches Won More Recruiting Battles Than It Seems. First off, let me just say that I genuinely love our 2013 class. We signed enough defensive backs to be set for the next 4-5 years. Same at linebacker. Leonard Floyd and Davin Bellamy will add incredible size (both are 6'5 240) and athleticism as outside linebackers. Shaun McGee could end up...

2013 Class...A Story of What COULD Have Been Do not misunderstand me, I love the class the Bulldogs have assembled in 2013.  Brice Ramsey has the best combination of size, skils, work ethic, and athletcism of any quarterback Mark Richt has recruited in his tenure at UGA.  Tramel Terry is a game-changer going through recovery from a torn...

REBUILDING the UGA Defense w/ 2013 Depth Chart Rebuilding the UGA defense is a monumental task for Todd Grantham.  The Bulldogs are not just losing senior's off the roster they are losing major contributors.  For example, the Bulldogs are losing of 8 of the teams 11 leading tacklers.  They 4 of the top 5 players responsible for tackles for a...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Impact of Johnny O’Neal Commitment on Reuben Foster 6'2 230 pound beast Johnny O'Neal made the decision to commit to UGA yesterday.  That is a huge commitment for the Dawgs because middle linebacker is a huge position of need for UGA in the 2013 class.  Now, Johnny is not just some average middle linebacker, he is one of the Top 10 in the Nation...

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 - HUGE Daily Recruiting Update - 1/24/12 Sheldon Dawson UpdateSheldon, a 5’11 185 running back/cornerback took his official visit to Memphis and stated that he had a “pretty good time”. Memphis recruiting Dawson to play running back and he said he felt that he would fit in “pretty good”. UGA is recruiting him primarily as a...

ImYourHuckleberry - Daily Recruiting Update - 1/21/12 This Weekend’s Visitors This weekend UGA will have three visitors on campus. John Theus, Leonard Floyd, and JaQuay Williams. Ricardo Louis was scheduled to be on campus this weekend but after his commitment to Florida State he will not be in Athens. It will be fun to watch see if the...

ImYourHuckleberry - Daily Recruiting Update - 1/19/12 Kendarious WhiteheadIt looks like UGA lost out on the race for Whitehead. Kendarious has played defensive end throughout high school and would like to continue with his hand in the ground at the college level. There are questions about his ability to play outside linebacker in the 3-4...

Grantham v. Bobo Recruiting Battle It is a lot of fun for Mark Richt to have two coordinators who are both outstanding recruiters. Coach Bobo and Coach Grantham are both excellent at winning over prospects. They already have these players hooked and then Mark Richt goes into the living room and sits down with the parents and he has...

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...

2012 Not the Season to Fire Richt This past offseason at UGA was highlighted by major turnover on the roster. Washaun Ealey, Caleb King, A.J. Harmon, Marcus Dowtin, Nick Williams, Brent Benedict, and Logan Gray all left Athens with eligibility remaining. This season UGA has already seen Jakar Hamilton and Derek Owens announce that...
