The Forgotten Man for UGA Offense

#58 - Sterling Bailey - Review & Looking Forward There was a lot expected from Sterling in his second season as a full time defensive end and Bailey had a solid season.  He didn't do anything exceptionally well but he held his own and was very dependable.  The flash that many were hoping for did not show up.  He was not able to penetrate into...

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...

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

#17 – Davin Bellamy – Review & Looking Forward 2014 was a year of what if's for Bellamy.  The 6'5 251 OLB had an excellent spring and even better fall camp but had trouble getting on the field with Jenkins, Floyd and Carter ahead of him.  As I have mentioned the Bulldogs have an embarrassment of riches at OLB on the roster.  Bellamy saw time...

#16 – Isaiah McKenzie – Review & Looking Forward As a last second addition to the Class of 2014, Isaiah came in and made one of the biggest impacts of anyone in the class.  McKenzie was dynamic with the ball in his hands whether as a runner, receiver or returner.  iMac has shown that he is going to be an elite return but he has to make serious...

#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,...

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

#8 – Blake Tibbs – Review & Looking Forward 2014 was a disappointing season for Blake. The 6'2 185 pound receiver had shown some flashes of potential in 2013 and the coaches talked about him making progress and becoming more reliable in spring and fall practice. Unfortunately, he was unable to show that progress under the bright...

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

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

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...

Which SEC Football Program is the MOST POWERFUL? After considerable effort, conversations, debate and some serious math we have developed a formula to determine the “POWER” of SEC football programs ranked on a scale between 1 and 14.  1 being the absolute best and 14 being the absolute worst.  The formula takes into account the...

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

Mason's Confidence and Gurley's Humility Like many of you I have spent since 6:00 in front of the TV watching the brand new SEC Network.  All I have to say is it is about time it's here!  After watching the debut of the network and in particular their parts focused on the UGA i came away with a few thoughts:Mason's...

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...

UGA Schedule Summer Primer – Week 1 – Clemson Tigers Post-Spring Rankings:Athlon - #21Phil Steele - #23ESPN - #222013 Season Review & AttritionThe Clemson Tigers are coming off of one of their most successful seasons in the programs recent history at 11-2 including a BCS victory...

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 - 5 Players Who Need to Emerge as LEADERS! When I look at the current UGA Roster there are two players that I clearly see as leaders – David Andrews and Amarlo Herrera.  It is clear from the way teammates spoke about these two last season that they were the heart and soul of this team last year along with guys like Aaron Murray, Arthur...

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....

A RIDICULOUS Offseason Coaching Carousel for the SEC Every year coaches get fired, new coaches are hired, coaches get promotions, coaches make lateral moves and so on.  But this year in the SEC it has been incredibly volatile in the coaching ranks, almost to ridiculous proportions.  You don't believe me?  Just look...

Alabama Interviewing UGA Defensive Line Coach - Chris Wilson In an unexpected development Chris Wilson, the defensive line coach for the Georgia Bulldogs, is currently at Alabama interviewing for the same position.  Wilson who came to Athens last season after being a co-defensive coordinator and defensive line coach for Mississippi State is viewed as...

Georgia's NEXT Defensive Coordinator? Last night when I heard that Grantham was leaving UGA I figured that an NFL team had come in and offered him either a defensive coordinator position and/or a job as the position coach.  When I heard he was leaving for the defensive coordinator position at Louisville I honestly was shocked.  But...

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 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...

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

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

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

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...

Still a Step DOWN in Strength & Conditioning? I respect what Coach T has done as the Strength & Conditioning coach at UGA since taking over for Dave Van Halenger.  He revitalized a conditioning program that had clearly fallen behind the rest of the SEC and many in the country and elevated it to a new level.  That new level of performance and...

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 - 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...

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...

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...

Harvey-Clemons NOT Living Up to HYPE? This offseason we continuously heard from the defensive coaches, including Grantham and Lakatos, what a playmaker JHC was and that he was going to be a difference maker for this defense.  Now, three games into the season I still don't see that difference maker on the field.  In my humble opinion...

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

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

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...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - 5 KEY Matchups v. Clemson #1 - Kenarious Gates (LT) v. Vic Beasley (DE) - Last season Kenarious Gates played a lot of solid football.  However, he did struggle when he was forced to block wide speed rushers and that is exactly what Beasley is.  Beasley likes to play a bit of a "Wide 9" DE position in pass...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Clemson RB Matchup Breakdown You don't find too many teams willing to schedule a game like this on the opening weekend of the season.  Sure in the media coaches will say it is great because it forces the team to be focused all through summer workouts and through fall camp.  But behind closed doors, to a man, I believe all...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Clemson QB Matchup Breakdown This may truly be one of the best quarterback battles in the country over the course of the season and it comes in Week 1.  Tahj Boyd and Aaron Murray are both on everyone's Heisman watch list heading into the 2013 Season and for good reason.  Both were spectacular last season and are playing on...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA Offensive Line v. Clemson 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 UGA offensive line...

CONCERNS on Offensive Line If you have read my articles you will know that I am typically very positive and optimistic.  However, when I see something that worries me I am not afraid to speak out about it.  Well, the first thing that has concerned me this offseason is beginning to crop up with the offensive line.  No, I am...

Georgia’s Two KEY PLAYERS to Take Offense to NEXT LEVEL We all know UGA receivers Malcolm Mitchell, Michael Bennett and Chris Conley.  You are also probably familiar with what guys like Rhett McGowan and Rontavious Wooten bring to the table.  However, there are two receivers on UGA's roster that have the potential to make spectacular plays and burst...

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

Aaron Murray on the RUN! No, Aaron Murray is not on the run like a Florida football player running from the police.  But the RUN and Aaron Murray has been a big topic of conversation this offseason.  Murray has made it known that he would like to use his feet more and show that he can escape the pocket and make plays...

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

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...

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 - Top 10 BREAKOUT Players - #2 Damian Swann - 5'11 180 - CBSwann's story is very similar to Chris Conley.  Swann was crushed after the SEC Championship game when he was beat deep by Amari Cooper at a pivotal point of the game. But Swann got up and dusted himself off and has worked hard all offseason to become a better...

ImYourHuckleberry - Top 10 BREAKOUT Players - #5 Jay Rome - 6'5 255 - TEThis year is the time that Jay Rome will finally shine and live up to the lofty expectations that were set for him out of HS.  At 6'5 255 pounds he has the perfect frame to be able to shield linebackers and defensive backs and move the chains on offense.  The biggest...

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...

CLEMSON Fans Ask Can UGA Offense Be STOPPED? As usual I make visits over the boards of other schools in the offseason and when the game is coming up to see what their fans have to say about playing UGA.  As you can certainly imagine on the Clemson board it has been on fire with discussion of the UGA game to open the season.  The Clemson...

What HAPPENED in UGA's Offseason Strength & Conditioning? I was just looking through the UGA roster today to see if any of the new players have been assigned their numbers because that is just one of the small things I like to look at.  When I was looking at the depth chart I was amazed by some of the players new weights.  For example they show Xzavier...

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

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...

Times UP for Perno? These are very dark days for UGA baseball.  The Dawgs were swept by Alabama and have now lost 7 games in a row.  The overall record for the season is 8-16 and they have not won a game in the SEC.  As of this moment it looks like this team will need a lot of luck not finish in the cellar of the...

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

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 - #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 - #15 - Quayvon Hicks - FB - 6'2 265 There have been some questions rumors this offseason surrounding Zander Ogletree and a potential violation of team rules that could lead to a significant suspension or perhaps dismissal from the team.  However, we don't know any of that for certain as of this moment.  Regardless of whether or not...

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...

Josh Harvey-Clemons FRUSTRATION If you have been following the news lately you have heard Josh Harvey-Clemons express some frustration with the uncertainty of where he will play for the Dawgs defense next season.  He could line up at Free Safety, Strong Safety, Star, Inside Linebacker, or Outside Linebacker.  He doesn't know....

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Part 1 Naim Mustafa - Naim Mustafa did not make his decommitment public from UGA until right before he got on the plain to fly out to Oklahoma City and join the Oklahoma State Cowboys.  While Mustafa is a solid player it appears that UGA did not fight to hard to keep him.  Honestly,...

He MUST Step Up for Dawgs D in 2013!! The most exciting development on the defense for the Dawgs late in the 2012 season was the play of Ray Drew.  Against Georgia Southern, Georgia Tech, and Nebraska - Drew got a reasonable amount of playing time and took full advantage.  When you watch film of those games when Drew is on the field...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - MONSTER Recruiting Mailbag!! @Kfoge - If the big people on the board commit early to other teams (M Adams, Tunsil, Foster, Kamara, etc) do you think the staff would sign others just to sign someone or would they look at trying to sign another 30 next year...

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...

NOBODY Would Have Ever Thought When you think about it, it really is unbelievable.  Next year the Bulldogs have the potential to be a powerful and dominant offensive line in the mold of Alabama's offensive line.  Considering all of the talk surrounding UGA's poor offensive line recruiting who woud have thought that?  If you...

UGA Quarterback SITUATION The Bulldogs potentially have a very interesting depth chart at the QB position next season.  Aaron Murray (Sr.), Hutson Mason (RJr.), Christian Lemay (RSo.), and Brice Ramsey (Fr.) figure to be Top 4 on the Depth Chart next season.  However, there is a lot that can happen before then.

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...

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

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...

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...

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

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.

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...

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

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...

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...

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...

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

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...

Bobo Learned from THE BEST this Offseason This offseason Mike Bobo spent some time out in San Francisco with Jim Harbaugh.  As of this moment there is no hotter name in coaching than Harbaugh.  What he did at Stanford rejuvenating that program and then going to NFC Championship in his first year as Head Coach of the 49ers was...

VERSATILE Offensive Line Shows GREAT Potential During G-Day As everyone expected, the defense was ahead of the offense the entire spring.  That is the way it should be when you have an offense returning 9 starters and an offensive line that is replacing 3 starters on the offensive line.  However, the offensive line showed GREAT potential during...

Two Recent UGA Commits Underrated! UGA has been on a great run of commits over the last week racking up 5 commitments.  All of these players have been on our radar for the last couple months and it was great to receive commitments each of these players because they all fit major needs for UGA after this season.  It is looking...

Isaiah Crowell Channeling His Inner Trent Richardson With the recent interview of Arthur Lynch it was very refreshing to hear that Isaiah Crowell had made some big strides as a person during this offseason. When he was first on campus Lynch acknowledged that they had to drag Crowell to workouts. I remember at that point Crowell still had a Twitter...

Most IMPROVED Players This Spring Many players have made big improvements this spring.  Isaiah Crowell is in better physical condition and has a better mental approach.  Kwame Geathers is really beginning to get “it” and show flashes of dominant ability.  However, from all accounts that I have heard there have been two players...

Coach Richt, You Are Responsible for this Mess! I love Mark Richt as a man and as a coach.  I have been a staunch supporter for him over the past two difficult seasons in Athens.  However, my patience is beginning to run thin.  To me winning of Saturday's is important but putting together a team that we can be proud of off the field is the...

The NEW Isaiah Crowell With the recent interview of Arthur Lynch it was very refreshing to hear that Isaiah Crowell had made some big strides as a person during this offseason. When he was first on campus Lynch acknowledged that they had to drag Crowell to workouts. I remember at that point Crowell still had a Twitter...

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....

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...

Ray Drew is MASSIVE and Looks READY!! I was back on campus the week before Spring Break and was walking around campus and saw Ray Drew. I thought I would share one thing with you guys who dont see these players in the offseason but Drew has gotten huge! I saw on the spring roster release on the official Georgia site that he was...

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...

Football Team Field Trip It looks like about half of the football team got together to go and see “Safe House” with Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds.  By the way that movie looks awesome if you have not seen the previews.  However, what is more important than seeing a great movie is that this team seems to be...

ImYourHuckleberry - Early Look at 2013 Prospect OT DeVondre Seymour Devondre Seymour is a 6'6 310 offensive tackle from North Gwinnett HS in Suwannee, GA.  If the last name sounds familiar that is because his father, Richard Seymour, starred at UGA as a defensive tackle from 1997-2000.  However, Richard is not DeVondre's biological father.  Richard is DeVondre's...

New Blood on Strength & Conditioning Staff I know today is Signing Day but there is other news to report on UGA football. Keith Gray, a 9-year veteran of the UGA Strength & Conditioning staff, took a job with the Philadelphia Eagles. Therefore, UGA now has an opening on the staff. It will be very interesting to see who UGA targets to...

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...

Come On Man!! (Sanders Commings Edition) Sanders Commings made a big mistake. Being arrested on domestic charges is terrible. I know everyone is innocent until proven guilty and hopefully Sanders will be found innocent – but this can be used as a major teaching point for the coaches. This team has a chance to go places in during the...

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...

Why Bobo Is Not Leaving Athens Anytime Soon I share the frustration of many Bulldog fans in the play-calling over the last couple of seasons in Athens. Sometimes it is innovative and aggressive. Other times it can be predictable and conservative. In my opinion, the UGA offense has not developed an identity the last several seasons. When...

Does UGA’s Strength & Conditioning Have a 2nd Gear? There were noticeable improvements in the Strength & Conditioning Program between the 2010 and 2011 seasons. Players looked bigger, stronger, and overall in better condition. While any improvement over 2010 was welcomed improvement the UGA offseason conditioning program needs to take it to another...

2011 Season Grade #1 Isaiah Crowell 12011 Season Grade: C - 182 Carries - 847 Yards - 4.7 ypc - 5 TD's Isaiah Crowell came to the University of Georgia with more...

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...

Rapidly Improving Geathers This offseason Kwame Geathers was a standout not only in the weight room but also on the field during spring practice. Coming out of high school, college scouts were drooling over this young man’s potential but said he was very raw and would need a lot of work. When he stepped on campus there was...

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

Change is Coming Between the Hedges – Part 5 – New Formations 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...

Change is Coming Between the Hedges – Part 2 – Coach T 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...

Season Review - #3 Washaun Ealey Washaun Ealey is one of the more interesting players on the UGA roster for next season. With Caleb King having shown he is a great pass blocker and the possibility that Isaiah Crowell will be a Dawg, Ealey must really step up next season or he will get limited playing time. Early In the year he...

Season Review - #2 Brandon Boykin Brandon Boykin is another great athlete for UGA at the cornerback position. His greatest strength is that he likes to play physical and is very strong in run support. We saw that throughout the season especially in the Georgia Tech game when he made some nice plays against the triple option.

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

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

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

Between the Hedges vs. Auburn in 2011 Suddenly, the UGA game versus Auburn on November 12, 2011 will be the most anticipated game circled on the calendar for many Bulldog fans and players. Auburn will come “Between the Hedges” to face a UGA team that will have retribution on their mind. I choose the word retribution instead of revenge...

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

89 Days Until Kickoff: #89 Bruce Figgens Tight end is a position of great depth for the Dawgs in the 2010 season. The top four tight ends all have NFL ability and the forgotten man in the group is most likely Bruce Figgens. Figgens played hurt and or missed all of the last two seasons but his talent and ability has not diminished. Richt...

There is NO Hot Seat for Richt! This offseason I have been perplexed and frankly angered by the talk of Coach Richt being on the “hot seat”. I understand that journalists cannot all write the same story and get readers by drumming up controversy. However, the one controversy that is completely and utterly ridiculous is the fact...

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...

99 Days Until Kickoff: #99 Kwame Geathers At 6’6 326 pounds Kwame Geathers was a 4-Star recruit coming out of high school in Georgetown, South Carolina. He was a late arrival on campus and was rudely greeted by SEC competition. He was out of shape, overweight, and had work to do in the weight room. According to the coaches he worked 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...

More Bull***** from Urban Meyer but Thompson was RIGHT! I have disliked Urban Meyer from the moment he was hired as coach at Florida but no matter how much I disliked him you had to respect the coaching job he did. With his actions this offseason he does not deserve any respect...he deserved to be shunned. His "retirement" (which was all BS), his...

Countdown To Gameday By the way this countdown is depressing during the offseason. 230 days until game day!!

Why do people insist that Richt has lost control of his team? I read all of these articles scattered across the internet that say that Mark Richt has lost control of this team. I do not understand why people say that and when I read their arguments I find their premises are mostly wrong. In one of my previous articles after the UGA - GT game I wrote: "I...

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

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

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

Coach Richt Please Clean House!! I think it is time for a major early spring cleaning of the UGA Coaching Staff! They say that players are a reflection of the coaching staff and I believe at UGA that is true. Most of our players are good young men but they lack the fire and intensity that the most successful programs have. I...
