#35 – A.J. Turman – Review & Looking Forward Since Turman arrived in Athens he has had a very difficult time staying healthy.  In 2014 it was a toe injury that required surgery and kept him out the entire season.  However, at bowl practice he was out of his boot and doing some running on the side which is good news.   As everyone knows the...

#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,...

#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....

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,...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA Receivers MUST Get Healthy Just like any of you watching the game in Sanford Stadium or at home on TV I was blown away by the play of the running backs this weekend.  Gurley, Michel and Chubb all had impressive runs and you could tell that Marshall was healthy running down the field to cover kickoffs even though he didn't...

I have heard some behind the scenes talk that Quayvon Hicks may be switching positions next year.  I have heard rumors that he is at 6'2 270 pounds and the coaches are considering moving him to either defensive end or possibly to an H-Back/TE role.  I don't know how I feel about that.  When I...

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

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...

Stopping Malzahn's Offense SOLVED by FSU? Florida State fell into the same trap that many teams in the SEC fell into this season when facing Malzahn's offense including Alabama and Georgia.  They were “catching” Tre Mason, Nick Marshall and the jet sweeps.  What I mean by “catching” is that they were not penetrating they were more so...

ImYourHuckleberry - 2014 Offense - Who Starts? Who Sits?

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 - UGA v.

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...

WON the Game...LOST the Season? Any road victory in the SEC is a good victory.  Beating Tennessee on the road is a good win.  When you consider you had to play the game without your two best running backs (Gurley and Marshall) and without three of your top four receivers (Bennett, Scott-Wesley, Mitchell) it makes the win...

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

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

BREAKOUT Game for Keith Marshall Thus far this season there has been a reasonable amount of criticism directed at Keith Marshall.  Through four games now he hasn't broken one of his signature long runs that he takes 60+ yards for a TD and showcases his sprinters speed.  He has also had some trouble running between the tackles...

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

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 – Dawgs DOMINATE LSU in the Trenches Three weeks ago when the Bulldogs played South Carolina I thought that was the best this UGA offensive line could possibly be asked to play all season long.  They opened up huge running holes for Gurley and Marshall against South Carolina and did a very nice job of protecting Murray.  On the...

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...

The three units began by running a triple option set with the quarterbacks handing the ball off to the...

Bobo Getting CREATIVE with Marshall Up until last season I had questions about Mike Bobo's ability to come up with creative ways to get players the ball in a position to best use their skill set.  Against Clemson, those questions came up again when Todd Gurley pulled his quad muscle and Bobo repeatedly rammed the ball straight...

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

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

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

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

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA Offensive Line v.

Keith Marshall TRANSFORMED Coming out of Millbrook HS in Raleigh, NC Keith Marshall was one of the most highly touted tailbacks in the country.  Rarely do you find a young man with that kind of speed.  When you watched his highlight films you saw a guy on the field that would simply run away from the high school...

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

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....

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

Expectations TOO HIGH for Gurshall? Keith Marshall playing tailback at UGA is great for Todd Gurley.  Todd Gurley playing tailback at UGA is great for Keith Marshall.  It is a combination that has that exceeded every Dawg fans wildest dreams in 2012.  Halfway through spring practice expectations are sky high for Gurshall and have...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - MONSTER Recruiting Update! 2014 Recruiting is in full swing now.  The Dawgs are hitting the road hard and are doing some very good things.  So I figured now it was time to do a big update on what the Dawgs are up to in trying to lay the foundation for an outstanding 2014 Class.QB Needs [0 or 1] - Offered [1]...

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

UGA 2014 Recruiting - So Many GREAT Running Back's...How Many Spots?? In the 2013 Recruiting Class the Dawgs missed out on Alvin Kamara and signed A.J. Turman as the lone tailback in the class.  That has left the Bulldogs with only three true scholarship tailbacks on the roster heading into this season.  Therefore, it is crucial for the Todd Gurley and Keith...

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

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

SILENCE from Tunsil The Dawgs rolled out the red carpet last weekend for the top remaining prospect on their recruiting board for the Class of 2013, Laremy Tunsil.  The 6'6 315 left tackle was the only official visitor on campus for the Dawgs for the weekend and received the full...

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

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

Surprise STARTER v. Nebraska If you aren't going to play for a BCS Championship or in a BCS Bowl game it doesn't mean that playing in another Bowl game is meaningless.  It gives the team the opportunity to have another 15-20 practices if you are participating in a New Years Day bowl.  That allows for more competition and...

Georgia's NEXT Recruiting Coordinator? The departure of Rodney Garner leaves a big hole in the Georgia staff when it comes to recruiting.  Garner had been in Athens for 14 seasons and a majority of that time he has been the head of recruiting for the Dawgs.  It will be very interesting to see how UGA chooses to take over this...

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...

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...

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

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...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - A MUST Read!! The Top 10 Things I Am Thankful For As a DAWG Fan!! Georgia Girls If you are friends, dating, engaged or married to a Georgia Girl you know how special they are.  They will drink beer with you on a Saturday...

Bobo Leading BEST UGA Offense Ever? This UGA offense has been unbelievably impressive this season.  The Bulldogs have now scored 56 TD's on the season.  The previous record was set in 1942 when the Bulldogs scored 54 TD's.  That was a huge milestone that fell but it barely even begins show the Dawgs success this year.  The...

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...

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

Offensive Line Changes PERMANENT? It is starting to look very doubtful for Chris Burnette to be on the field this weekend for the Bulldogs.  That means the Dawgs will be doing some shuffling on an offensive line that needs to continue to improve and gel as a unit.  However, this could be a blessing in disguise for the Bulldogs...

A Name Dawg Fans NEED to Know! There was a 4-star running back on campus for the UGA v. Ole Miss game this weekend and he left Athens very impressed.  No, it was not Tyren Jones.  It wasn't Alvin Kamara...

Dawgs WILL NOT Sign Running Back? UGA has been recruiting Alvin Kamara pretty hard since the day that Derrick Henry decided to decommit from the Bulldogs.  But the question is how bad does UGA really want him?  With Richard Samuel graduating that will leave UGA with only 3 scholarship tailbacks on the roster headed into next...

Two KEYS to BEAT Ole Miss Going back and watching Ole Miss there are two things that stand out on film that give the Dawgs the best chance to beat the Rebels this weekend.  If the Bulldogs can accomplish these two goals I believe they win the game going away.  1) First Down - Controlling the Rebels offense on 1st...

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...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update!! Laremy Tunsil - Coach Will Friend and John Lilly went to Lake City, FL to see Laremy Tunsil play on Friday before the Florida game.  Laremy had a very impressive game and the coaches walked away impressed...

This is a BIG DEAL!! Ladies and gentlemen this is a big deal!  Your Georgia Bulldogs just beat the #2 team in the country, beat Florida for the 2nd consecutive time (for the first time in since Vince Dooley's final season), and control their destiny for a return trip to Atlanta.  Also,...

ImYourHuckleberry - Florida v. Georgia Prediction Winds of change will be sweeping through Jacksonville this weekend as Hurricane Sandy churns off the coast.  Depending on what news you watch down here you will get a different forecast.  Some say 80 degrees with a 20 mph wind and 10% chance of rain.  Then you go to the next channel and it says...

Ex-Bulldog’s Stock is Soaring in Recruiting Circles Who remembers Nick Marshall?  I certainly do.  Nick Marshall was one of the most highly sought after recruits in the southeast coming out of Wilcox Co. HS in Rochelle, GA before he was kicked off the team for theft.  At UGA the coaches loved his potential at cornerback and thought he could...

UGA Midterm Grades Quarterbacks = [B] Aaron Murray was having an "A" season until the game in Columbia, South Carolina.  His performance was not entirely his fault as the offensive line could not protect him and when they did the receivers did not give him much help.  Murray has...

Can UGA Become ELITE? - Part II - Tailbacks Since we have a bye week this week I am going to go through the roster position-by-position and analyze what it will take for the Dawgs to reach the next level.  Can it be fixed this season?  Are we recruiting properly to address the need?  I will attempt to answer these questions and more.

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...

Dawgs Mismanaging ANOTHER 5-Star Recruit? All Dawg fans remember that Richard Samuel was once considered a can't miss 5-star prospect.  Coming out of HS people said he could play either RB or LB on the college level.  The Dawgs recruited him as a RB and he started his career as such.  Since that point, Samuel has gone from RB to LB and...

Bobo’s UNSTOPPABLE Gameplan Having watched all five of South Carolina's games this season I think that the gameplan that Mike Bobo has used so far this season will be excellent against the South Carolina defense.  Why do I say that?  I list my reasons below: (1)  Run to Set up the Pass - In...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Ashton Shumpert - 6'2 210 - 2013 RB/S - UGA has been putting on more heat on this athlete from Mississippi because he is having an outstanding senior season.  He is a bigger back in the mold of Todd Gurley at 6'2 210 pounds and has a very physical running style.  Right now he is...

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...

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...

They are SPECIAL, There is NO Question About It Another game and another impressive performance by Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall.  They certainly have earned the nickname "Gurshall".  Plain and simple, these two are special - there is no question about it.  The Bulldog fans are witnessing something very special from these two 18 year old...

Is It TIME for a Special Teams Coach? Of the many things that went wrong this weekend for the Dawgs special teams was probably where you could find the most fault.  Marshall Morgan once again missed two extra points.  Malcolm Mitchell let a punt roll dead at the one yardline instead of running up and fair catching it at the 20...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting, A Glimpse Into the FUTURE Last week I wrote two blogs focusing on the players that are already committed to UGA for the Class of 2013 and provided updates on how their senior season's are progressing.  Today, I am going to take a little look into the future at UGA's recruiting for the Class of 2014 because UGA has...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - 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 - 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...

Gurley in the Wildcat? Talking to a fellow Bulldog fan last night he mentioned to me how much he would love to see Todd Gurley line up in the Wildcat formation.  He has maintained since watching Gurley in the first game of the season against Buffalo that Gurley reminds him a lot of Darren McFadden.  With his 6'2...

Keith Marshall NOT Living Up to Expectations? The question I have heard the most after the first two weeks of the season is, "Is Keith Marshall going to be a bust?"  I find that question completely laughable.  The Dawgs have only played two games and he is running behind an inexperienced offensive line.  Yes, Todd Gurley has had success...

The Gurley Effect During fall practice we heard how special Todd Gurley was.  In his first game Between the Hedges Todd Gurley showed us how special he is.  That is a welcome change for the Bulldog Nation who always seems to hear great things about a player in fall camp...

Are Gurley & Marshall Good Enough? Last season UGA averaged 164 yards per game rushing which ranked UGA 7th in the SEC.  To be blunt, that is not good enough.  If you look at the teams that have won the SEC Championship over the last 7 years, they have all finished the season ranked in the Top 3 in the conference in rushing....

Hints About Suspensions on Depth Chart? UGA released there depth chart for the opening game of the season against Buffalo this morning.  There was some very interesting developments on the depth chart that I am going to delve into: Sanders Commings and Chase Vasser are the...

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...

UGA has GREAT Scrimmage! UGA had their final full scrimmage of the fall and things went very well according to Coach Richt.  He appears to be very happy with the performance of the team.  The aspect of the game he appears to be the most happy with is that the "Georgia" team did not commit any turnovers, they respected...

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

Marshall is Still Ahead of Gurley I have been one of the guilty ones to fall into the Todd Gurley hype machine after his performances in UGA's first two scrimmages.  Gurley has had some monster runs and his teammates rave about how he combines physical strength with sprinter speed.  Shawn Williams has gone so far as to compare...

Thank Goodness Crowell is GONE!! After the second scrimmage of the season Todd Gurley is getting some very high praise from his teammates.  Most notably from Shawn Williams.  Williams says that when he watches Gurley he see's Trent Richardson, not only is he ""big but he is crazy fast".  All spring you heard about Keith...

Gurley Goes "Beast Mode" Again in 2nd Scrimmage Just heard the stats from Mark Richt after the 2nd Scrimmage - Here are some stats of note: Todd Gurley - 7 carries 87 yards 2 TD's / Keith Marshall - 5 Carries 62 Yards / Chase Vasser - 3 Sacks / Chris Conley - 4 catches...

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...

Dont Panic - Special Teams Will Be Good! A major worry for many UGA fans heading into this season is the special teams.  How do you replace an ALL-SEC kicker like Blair Walsh and a Ray Guy award winning punter in Drew Butler?  UGA answer has been to recruit two of the top HS specialists in the country - Marshall Morgan and Collin...

Samuel’s Playing Time is Disappearing With everything that Richard Samuel has done for the Bulldogs and the selflessness he has demonstrated throughout his career I am hoping that the coaches will find a way for him to be able to contribute in his final season Between the Hedges but it looks like that is becoming less and less...

ImYourHuckleberry - BIGGEST News from 1st Scrimmage 1)  Performance of the Offensive Line - The #1 Offensive Line was going against the #2 Defensive Line and they performed quite well.  Mark Richt stated that he did not believe that the #1 OL gave up a sack in the scrimmage.  I know that Grantham probably was not throwing the...

Is Todd Gurley Going to be "The Guy"? The stats have been released from the 1st scrimmage of the fall and I was impressed by Gurley's #'s:  6 carries - 58 yards and one touchdown.  Marshall only had 11 yards on 7 carries and Malcome had good #'s with 35 yards on 7 carries. Richt had this to say after the scrimmage:  “Todd, he...

Update on UGA Running Back Recruiting for 2013 With UGA signing Keith Marshall and Todd Gurley to join the Bulldogs backfield in 2012 it was generally thought that the Dawgs would only take 1 running back in the class of 2013.  That player was Derrick Henry.  Suddenly, Henry decided to decommit from UGA and has named Alabama as his clear...

Interesting Sidenote on Tray Matthews It is no secret that I am not a big fan of the coverage of the AJC on UGA football and recruiting.  However, Michael Carvell has a very nice article on the Tray Matthews decision.  As you know, I have stated that I believe that Tray Matthews already has 1 foot out the door of UGA and it is just...

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...

Why Keith Marshall is Going to Be Special Keith Marshall has an ability that no running back at UGA has had since Garrison Hearst.  Marshall can go from a standstill to full speed in only 1 stride.  He has that type of explosiveness.  When I watch him on film from HS and saw him practice on the field at UGA it is something that...

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...

The Next #34 in Athens One of the most popular things to do when UGA signs a tailback is to say, "He is the next Herschel Walker".  While UGA has had some great tailbacks since Herschel left Athens, nobody has come close and I don't believe anybody every will.  Herschel was a monster. But, now you have a new 34 in...

UGAs Forgotten Man in 2012 Recruiting Class UGA fans are very exciting to see a lot of the players in the 2012 class.  They want to see if Keith Marshall is game-breaking playmaker that he built up a reputation for being in high school.  They want to see if Todd Gurley is the big physical punishing back that can grind out games in...

Forget Hutson Mason...Aaron Murray WILL Lead UGA to the Promise Land!! Aaron Murray has put up some remarkable statistics in his first two seasons as the starting QB for the Bulldogs.  He has thrown for over 6000 yards and 59 touchdowns with a 60% completion percentage.  However, in his first two season's while Murray is the starting QB, UGA has struggled to win...

Derrick Henry v. Reuben Foster and Alvin Kamara Derrick Henry has been committed to the Dawgs for over a year now but it appears that he may be wavering on his commitment.  There are conflicting reports everywhere on him.  Derrick Henry just completed his second straight weekend at Tennessee where he is flirting heavily with the Volunteers....

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update!! Tramel Terry Update  UGA added another cornerback with Reggie Wilkerson deciding to become a Dawg!  What does this have to do with Tramel Terry?  I believe that the addition of Wilkerson means that Tramel Terry will most likely end up playing as a full time wide...

Should we Start Worrying about Derrick Henry? One of the committed players who will not be in Athens for G-Day is Derrick Henry.  His initial plans were to head up to South Carolina and visit the Gamecocks with a few of his teammates.  Instead, he is going to be staying home and taking the SAT again.  Even though Derrick will not be in...

Don’t FORGET Todd Gurley! There has been a lot of media attention around the tailback situation at UGA over the last year and a half.  You had once highly touted recruits Caleb King and Washaun Ealey transfer from UGA.  Then, all world 5-star Isaiah Crowell signs his letter of intent to play for the Dawgs.  UGA realized...

NEW Offensive Scheme at UGA Last season we saw a new wrinkle in the UGA offense, the hurry-up.  Mark Richt and Mike Bobo made the decision to speed up the offense by having them get up to the line of scrimmage and calling the play in from the sidelines.  I like the general idea of that but I would like to see it move even...

Keith Marshall sustains Hamstring Injury Via Twitter, I saw that Keith Marshall has suffered a hamstring injury and missed practice today.  Details on the severity of the injury are not yet known but we will keep you updated with any details we can find.  Let's hope it is mild and he gets back in time for G-Day so we can all see him in...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Reuben Foster – 6'1 240 – MLB A lot will be decided in Reuben Foster's recruitment this summer.  Reuben has three options on where he could attend high school next semester.  The 1st option is to stay at Troup County High School.  This is the most...

Richard Samuel FRUSTRATED When Richard Samuel came out of High School he was rated as a 5-Star Athlete.  He had excelled at both linebacker and tailback at that level.  He was so good at running back that recruiting services had him ranked ahead of Ryan Williams (Virginia Tech), Chris Polk (Washington), Jaquizz Rodgers...

HUGE SEC East Recruiting Update As you all know recruiting is in full swing for the 2013 class.  UGA has gotten off to a very strong early start with commitments from the likes of Derrick Henry, Brice Ramsey, Tray Matthews, Shaq Wiggins, Tramel Terry, and Johnny O'Neal.  As a matter of fact UGA already holds 9 commitments for...

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...

Keith Marshall Makes INSTANT Impact Yesterday was the first day of Spring Practice for UGA and the arrival of Keith Marshall to SEC football.  Coming out of high school we all knew that Marshall had speed and smarts.  It appears that combination helped him in his initial practice.  The following quote is from Coach Richt following...

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....

ESPN’s Spring Preview Grades for UGA Quarterback = B+ Runningback = B Wide Receiver = B+ Tight End = B Offensive Line = C+ Defensive Line = B Linebackers =...

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...

Spring Practice is Coming!!!!! Who are You Most Excited to Seee? Even though the college basketball tournament is great, the real March Madness is about to start. My March madness is spring practice. I love hearing all the reports about who is doing well and reports on position battles. My two questions for y'all are who are y'all most excited to see in...

UGA a Running Team in 2012 I look at the way the roster is coming together for 2012 and I think UGA will bea heavy run team.  If Isaiah can stay healthy he will get a lot of carries and then you have Ken Malcome who showed he can run tough.  Add in Keith Marshall and Todd Gurley at RB and we have 4 capable backs.  Then...

Players Ready to SHINE in Spring Practice Jay Rome – 6'6 255 – TE Jay Rome was a very highly recruited TE in the 2011 recruiting class and was stuck behind Orson Charles and Aron White on the depth chart. After a redshirt season that allowed him develop physically and study the playbook he needs to...

Derrick Henry Disrespected If you follow UGA recruiting you know the name Derrick Henry.  Derrick is a 6'3 248 pound monster tailback with outstanding speed.  If you saw him walking down the street you would think he was an NFL linebacker not a 17-year-old High School tailback.  He is that physically imposing of a player...

UGA Players on Wild Spring Break? This week is always of great concern to the UGA coaches.  The players have just finished their final mat drills and then Spring Break weekend begins.  You have some players headed to Key West and others to Panama City.  The last thing the coaches want is anyone getting arrested or making a...

UGA Makes Best S&C Hire Since EVER! It has happened quietly but the results should not be so quiet on the field.  UGA has hired speed specialist Sherman Armstrong to join the Strength & Conditioning Staff after the spring break.  His goal while in Athens will be to increase the hip flexibility of the players so that they can have...

Tramel Terry COMMITS to DAWGS and What it MEANS!! I told you on Sunday morning not be disappointed in V.I.D. Day because big things were coming.  This is the first of the "big things".  Tramel Terry decided to end his recruitment and recommit to the DAWGS.  Huge addition for the Dawgs because he is the #1 player in the state of South Carolina...

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...

Don’t Be Disappointed About V.I.D. Day As we all know UGA had a boatload of talent on campus this weekend.   Among the visitors were Naim Mustafaa, DeAndre Johnson (Commit), Brice Ramsey (Commit), Derrick Henry (Commit), Shaq Wiggins (Commit), Delando Crooks, Tray Matthews (Commit), Antonio Riles, Raekwon McMillan, Alan Knott, Laremy...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA Fans Are Going to be Real Excited Tomorrow - VISIT UPDATE! Tramel Terry, Reuben Foster, Montravious Adams, and Alvin Kamara are four of the big names that are in Athens this weekend.  Each of these players are big time targets for UGA for the 2013 recruiting class and it is very interesting to see how they are reacticing to there visits on...

SUPERSTAR Recruits at UGA This Weekend Tramel Terry - 5'11 185 - WR/CB Five Star Athlete!  Probably the best athlete in the country for the 2013 Recruiting Class.  He has Keith Marshall/Malcom Mitchell speed and is incredibly quick.  Could be a star WR on the college level and a shut down CB.  Most...

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...

Players Set to Make Name for Themselves During Spring Jay Rome – 6'6 255 – TE Jay Rome was a very highly recruited TE in the 2011 recruiting class and was stuck behind Orson Charles and Aron White on the depth chart.  After a redshirt season that allowed him develop physically and study the playbook he needs to show...

MY GOD a HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR! I write this blog quickly as I am driving from Charlotte, NC down to Gainesville, GA.  For those of you who do not know - Derrick Henry recently joined Twitter.  Well right after he joins twitter he makes a few comments.  First, the young man is up to 245 pounds.  The kid is an absolute...
