The Forgotten Man for UGA Offense

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 – 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...

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...

The Blackout Debate, Should Gurley Start & the Coin Toss? Should Gurley Start?  YES!  This should not even be a question.  While some fans are complaining about Richt saying “No Chance” when referring to the chance of UGA wearing black jersey's the fans focus in this game should be on the return of Todd Gurley.  In my opinion, UGA does not need to...

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 - Statistically Speaking I am a numbers guy therefore at this point in the season it is fun to look at the stats to see where trends are emerging with this team:StrengthsRushing Offense – #8 in Nation – 300.3 YPG – It is amazing to see the Bulldogs averaging over 300 yards...

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

Bauta Package is a MUST Moving Forward I came away impressed by UGA's two backup QB's on Saturday afternoon.  In Ramsey's first collegiate action he ripped off some very nice throws and his arm strength jumped off the screen.  As Ramsey mentioned, he was nervous especially on his first couple throws but on ones where he let it rip he...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting Update - Wide Receiver #3 Position of Need - WIDE RECEIVERI tried to look back in the stats to see when the last time the Bulldogs went two consecutive games under Mark Richt with less than 200 yards passing per game.  The Bulldogs have struggled a great deal in their passing game this season because the depth...

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

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...

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

Dawgs Offense Presents NEW Challenge for Gamecocks It is going to be very interesting to see how the Dawgs choose to attack the Gamecocks defense in Columbia on Saturday.  Thus far, the Gamecocks have faced uptempo spread teams in Texas A&M and East Carolina and have struggled mightily in both of those games.  The Gamecocks gave up 511 yards...

Jeff Driskel Better than Hutson Mason? C'MON MAN! The text below is an excerpt from an article  from 247Sports written by JC Schurburtt "Ranking the SEC Quarterbacks":"1. Nick Marshall, Auburn- The most decorated returning starter in the league- who led his team to the SEC Championship and a BCS National Title Game...

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 - Quick Thoughts on Michael Chigbu Commitment Michael Chigbu - 6'2 215 - WR He is a physical wide receiver who invites contact, relishes it even - when opposing defenders try to bump him off the line or on underneath routes he shows the physicality to fight it off and not let it distract him He has "basketbal skills" as...

ImYourHuckleberry - Biggest Dawg Recruiting Day EVER! WOW!  What else can you say!  It was good news when Deontai Williams decommitted from the Gators and committed to the "G" but the news only got better.Today the Bulldogs got 2 commitments for the class of 2016 in 5-Star QB Jacob Eason and 5-Star OT Ben Cleveland.  Both Eason and Cleveland...

ImYourHuckleberry - Dawg Day Recruiting Update As Mark Richt said it is no longer simply "Dawg Night" it is now "Dawg Day".  The amount of prospects who want to camp in Athens is so large that it simply does not make sense to only have the camp under the lights at Sanford Stadium.  That being said, with such a large amount of prospects coming...

ImYourHuckleberry - Offensive Line Recruiting Update! COMMITSDeVondre Seymour – 6'6 315 – Seymour will be a big arrival on campus for the Bulldogs, both in terms of size and in terms of the impact he can make.  The Bulldogs have made it no secret that they want to get bigger across the offensive line and...

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

Dismissal of Tray Matthews - HELP or HURT? Mark Richt's statement regarding Tray Matthews dismissal from the team says it all - This dismissal was "to make room for guys who want to do things right".  That is as close to a slam (or putdown) as you will ever get from Richt.  Frankly, I think that says it all.  Tray was immature and...

Dawgs FINALLY Adjusting to Uptempo Game! You play how you practice.  There is no more simple way to put it and the Bulldogs are making significant adjustments as to how they practice this spring.  Everything the Bulldogs are doing in practice is being done with a sense of urgency.  There is no more slow, methodical pace to practice it...

Commit to the "G" or Go Somewhere Else... Enough talk about “theft by deception” and you won't hear those words mentioned again from me until a decision is made on the punishments to are handed out to those players.  Since we are moving on from that I want to address what I thought the most telling quote from Richt was in press...

ImYourHuckleberry – Richt Getting it Right, Yet Again When Richt stepped to the podium for the first press conference after spring practice he knew the first question that was going to come.  He knew it was going to be about the four players who were arrested for allegedly committing “theft by deception”.  You all know the background story by now so...

ImYourHuckleberry - #1 ESSENTIAL Key for This Spring! ~~It is too say that the #1 goal for a team in spring practice is to stay healthy.  Of course you would like to stay healthy and not lose any players for the season but that is impossible to predict and odds are if you practice and tell they guys to stay healthy more will end up getting injured...

ImYourHuckleberry - 3 Keys for OFFENSE This Spring! #3 - Chemistry Between Mason and Receivers - Most of the top receivers on UGA roster Chris Conley, Michael Bennett and Malcom Mitchell have spent a majority of their careers catching passes from Aaron Murray.  Conley and Bennett could read what Murray was going to do before he did it and that...

ImYourHuckleberry - Signing Day Prediction for Andrew Williams Williams is one of the guys that I never understood why UGA and Todd Grantham did not recruit any harder.  Williams is a massive 6'5 260 with the frame to fill easily fill out around 275-280 pounds and be a player very similar to Ray Drew.  In my opinion, Williams is the definition of a “Pruitt...

ImYourHuckleberry - Signing Day Prediction for Lorenzo Carter Finally, tomorrow is Signing Day and we get to put all of this drama and craziness behind us for a little bit.  But in the annual tradition I will make my Signing Day picks that involve UGA.  In 2012 I got lucky and picked 4 out of 5 correctly with Sheldon Dawson, JHC, Todd Gurley and Jordan...

Lorenzo Carter OVERSHADOWED Lost in the BAW craziness over this weekend was the fact that UGA's top remaining recruit on their board was also on campus for his official visit.  The main topic of discussion on Twitter was surrounding BAW and a lot of focus was on him but the coaches did not allow for their spotlight to be...

Is Tramel Terry's position change permanent? Huck - With Grantham leaving and Lakatos being gone as well do you think that Tramel Terry is going to stay at safety?  Was that a move that Grantham and Lakatos pushed Richt for or was it something Terry wanted.  I know that Grantham had some good things to say about Terry at safety before he...

It is a Whirlwind Right Now for Lorenzo Carter Lorenzo Carter is feeling the full court press right now from a bunch of schools in his recruitment.  The weekend of January 17 he was in Baton Rouge for his official visit to LSU.  Last weekend he was on his official visit to Tallahassee to visit Florida State.  Now this weekend he will be...

Bryson Allen-Williams UPDATE! Things appear to have officially become very interesting with the recruitment of Bryson Allen-Williams (BAW).  BAW spent the weekend on an official visit to Alabama this weekend and it appears his eyes were opened to a world outside of Columbia, South Carolina.The 6'1 225 pound ILB/OLB has...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - MONSTER Recruiting Update! The Bulldogs coaching staff, all be it missing several key pieces, is doing some serious work on the recruiting trail right now.  With the new rules extending the dead period and all of the staff changes occurring on the defensive side of the ball this is turning from what many thought was going...

C'Mon Man - Harvey-Clemmons Should be DISMISSED! My opinion might not be popular but I feel strong about it.  Mark Richt and Jeremy Pruitt need to set the tone for this off-season and kick Harvey-Clemmons of the team.  This is a kid with all the talent in the world but he just can't get it together off the field or on the field for that...

Jeremy Pruitt a DAWG!! Barring a last minute change of heart Jeremy Pruitt will be the next defensive coordinator of the University of Georgia!I know there is a faction of the Bulldog Nation taht wanted Kirby Smart and nobody else but Jeremy Pruitt is the man that is going to lead the...

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

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...

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...

UGA Trending HEAVILY with Lorenzo Carter In a great piece of reporting by the AJC's Michael Carvell he was able to secure yet another interview with Lorenzo Carter at Norcross HS.  The start of the interview would have probably had a lot of Georgia fans feeling a little nervous as Carter is wearing a Florida Gator T-shirt and also...

SEC Officiating and Penn Wagers are a PROBLEM! I watch a lot of college football.  I watch football games from multiple conferences including the PAC 12, BIG 12, BIG 10, ACC and SEC most often.  When I watch conferences other than the SEC there have been a fair amount of targeting calls.  When I see the targeting calls I would say 90% of the...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - Richt’s Job 100% Secure If you have read my articles on a consistent basis you will know that I have always been a huge supporter of Mark Richt.  However, I had begun to question whether or not McGarity should keep him in Athens after UGA's loss to Vanderbilt.  Now, after a completely gut wrenching loss to Auburn I...

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

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

World’s Largest Coaching HOT SEAT Party We are no longer supposed to call this game “The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party” but there are some out there starting to call it the coaching "hot seat” party.  Whether it is fair or not there is a lot of pressure on both of these coaches heading into this game.  With both teams 4-3,...

STREAK Starter for UGA The bye week could not have come at a better time for UGA and for the Bulldog Nation.  Coming off of two tough losses the Bulldogs players were physically beaten down and the fan base was emotionally worn out.  A season that looked so bright after an epic victory against LSU took a huge turn for...

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...

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

IMPACT of Vanderbilt Loss on RECRUITING Trail The loss to Vanderbilt is huge on many levels.  But the impact may be felt in no bigger way than on the recruiting trail.  In todays world where many programs like to negatively recruit against SEC schools you can bet that the negative recruiting against UGA is in full swing.  Coaches will be...

TIME for CHANGE at Head Coach? If you have followed my blog and my writing for the last 3-4 years you know that I am a huge supporter of Mark Richt.  I have had the opportunity to meet the man and I respect him as a person and a head coach.  But now we have reached a crossroads in his tenure as head coach.  Yes, there is an...

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

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...

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

A Reason for OPTIMISM for UGA Defense Through the first four games of the season against Clemson, South Carolina, North Texas and LSU the Bulldogs defense took its fair share of criticism for not performing at a level expected of UGA fans.  Last weekend after the Bulldogs let the Volunteers score three TD's in the second half the...

An EXCELLENT Chance for Bennett The best piece of news to come out of Mark Richt's press conference yesterday was that Michael Bennett's arthroscopic surgery on his right knee went excellent and they did not find anything unexpected.  As a result Richt stated, “I'm not a doctor or anything but just from what I'm hearing, my...

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

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

STYLE POINTS Important Against Tennessee After UGA's 3-1 start to the season with victories against #6 South Carolina, #6 LSU and their only loss to #3 Clemson UGA fans are understandably starting to think of scenarios that could land them in Pasadena for the National Championship game.  Obviously, the Bulldogs would need to win their...

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...

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

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...

Another SILENT COMMIT to Dawgs? One player to watch very closely for the Class of 2014 who could announce a college decision a little sooner than many expect is David Sharpe.  As you know Sharpe is the 6'6 290 pound offensive tackle from Jacksonville, FL who is ranked as one of the Top 5 offensive tackles in the country.  He...

Dawgs Make BIG MOVE with Raekwon McMillan In a great piece of reporting by the AJC and Michael Carvell he was able to get ahold of Raekwon McMillan after his visit to Athens for the LSU game and was able to get some very revealing quotes from McMillan.  Among some of the quotes from McMillan that were very positive in the article...

ImYourHuckleberry – GREATEST Recruiting Weekend EVER! This was a HUGE recruiting weekend for the Bulldogs.  The visitor list was a who's who of the top players in the southeast for the Class of 2014, 2015 and 2016.  The list included the likes of Lorenzo Carter, Raekwon McMillan, Josh Malone, David Sharpe, Ben Cleveland, Elisha Shaw, Christian...

The GENIUS Behind EVIL Richt! This week Richt and the UGA coaching staff have been as intense as I can ever recall for a week of practice.  The Bulldogs have been in full pads Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday which is extremely rare for a mid-season game when you are trying to let players bodies recover so that they are at 100%...

A Game MADE for Johnny O'Neal If there ever was a game made for Johnny O'Neal this would be the game.  As I mentioned, LSU does not do anything fancy in their running game, they just line up and run the ball right down your throat.  It is clear from Grantham and Richt's comments that this type of game is the reason why they...

Kublanow Making STRONG Push for Playing Time! I am the first to admit when I was wrong about something and it appears that I was wrong about Brandon Kublanow.  I stated before the season started that I thought Kublanow was a lock to be a redshirt this season because of the experienced returning depth on the offensive line.  However, on the...

LSU a BAD Matchup for Georgia Defense? I have watched enough LSU football over the last two days enough to make me more nervous than I was for the Clemson or South Carolina game.  When I watch them play I see an attitude, a swagger and extreme physicality.  Like Coach Richt has said, LSU's goal is to punish you and break your will...

ImYourHuckleberry - 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...

The Kiss of DEATH for Dawgs? For those of you that are superstitious this weekends matchup against the LSU has you saying - “Oh Shit”.  College Gameday has announced that they will be in Athens and the Bulldogs recent history when Gameday is at one of their games has not been good.Then you throw on top of that the...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - MAJOR Recruiting Update As you all know this was a HUGE recruiting weekend for the Bulldogs with the Gamecocks coming into town.  From what I have heard and also from players reactions themselves on Twitter many recruits left the game incredibly impressed with what they saw from the Georgia football team and the UGA...

CONFIDENT Gamecocks Talking TRASH! Nothing gets me fired up more than going over to the opponents websites and looking for some good old fashioned trash talk.  After having gone to South Carolina last year and the way their fans acted when they beat us I have no respect for Gamecocks fans anymore.  They were a classless bunch that...

Aaron Murray's LAST Chance! Leading up to, during and after the game against Clemson UGA fans and Aaron Murray had to here over and over how Murray can't win the big game.  It was very difficult for me to listen to because I am a fan of Aaron, I think he does everything the right way and is everything good about college...

ImYourHuckleberry - PHYSICAL Fall Camp Ending PERFECTLY! When you ask Mark Richt what was most important goal for this team to accomplish in this years fall camp was he immediately gives you the answer - “We need to come out of fall camp in midseason form”.  Well for a long time the injury list looked to be in midseason form.  Their were guys at a...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update! Jeb Blazevich – TE – 2014 Commit – Blazevich played his first HS game of the season last night in Charlotte, NC at Memorial Stadium. It was the first HS football game in North Carolina and a lot of people showed up to see Jeb and some of the country's top recruits. Chad Simmons...

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

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

NEW Approach to Fall Practice Fall practice for the Bulldogs has taken on a much different look from the norm.  Usually, the offense and defense match up #1's v. #2's and eventually move to work solely against the Scout team.  However, this fall because of their brutal schedule to start the season Mark Richt has gone to more...

BRUTAL Stretch of Fall Camp It has been well documented that the UGA coaches are putting an emphasis on this team being in “mid-season form” from Week 1 of the season.  To a man, that is something I believe Mark Richt and the rest of the UGA coaching staff would admit has not been a strong point over the last few seasons....

UGA's Most VALUABLE Staff Member I am a fan of Mark Richt. He is an excellent coach, a great leader and loyal man. His loyalty has been one of his greatest assets and biggest liabilities. It led to him keeping Willie Martinez to long but it also led to him sticking with Mike Bobo despite many people calling for him to be fired....

ImYourHuckleberry - Lamont Galliard PREDICTION This is usually my week of every year where I take a break and recharge for the season.  However, this weekend the Dawgs have one of their biggest visits of the summer on campus, both literally and figuratively.  At 6'3 315 pounds Lamont Galliard is a monster of a young man from North Carolina...

C'Mon Man - Jacob Park is MY HERO! Okay, it is a done deal – I officially have a new favorite Bulldog and it is Jacob Park.  I don't know how many of you have had the opportunity to read the article in the AJC where they interviewed Park but I loved the way that Park came across.  He appears to be a no BS kind of guy who calls it...

Falling BEHIND for Lorenzo Carter? It has been a whirlwind for Lorenzo Carter recently.  For months many experts considered him a lock to Alabama.  Then in mid-June he takes a visit to Florida and follows that up the next weekend with trips to Notre Dame and Ohio State before heading to The Opening in Oregon.  It appeared the...

The METEORIC Rise of UGA Commit Mark Richt and Mike Bobo have always been able to evaluate and recognize talent at the QB position and that is becoming more and more evident as this years recruiting class plays out.  At first the UGA staff said they were unlikely to recruit a QB in the Class of 2014 and then they said we are...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update!! After UGA got off to a bit of a slow start in the 2014 Recruiting Class things have certainly picked up for the Dawgs.  The class now stands at 11 including 1 Five Star Recruit and 5 Four Star Recruits and it looks like those numbers are only going to go up from here.  In the next couple weeks...

UGA's Best Recruiter? I don't write articles to often but I wanted to ask a pretty simple question and see what people think.  My question is who is UGA's best recruiter?  When I look at last years recruiting class and the great start we are off to in this class I wanted to know who has been pulling in the most kids....

More ESPN Garbage/UGA Disrespect On ESPN Insider They released their “College Football Future Power Rankings”.  This list is utterly ridiculous in my opinion.  First off, below find the Top 10:#1 – Alabama#2 – Ohio State#3 – LSU#4 – Florida#5 – Michigan#6 –...

Alabama & FSU Turning Up Heat for TOP Georgia Offensive Lineman Every year college coaches from around the southeast and the nation descend on Valdosta, GA because of the incredible quality of HS football that his played in that area.  Each and every year they send kid's to SEC schools that are well prepared to play on the next level.  This year the hot...

ImYourHuckleberry - Jacob Park PREDICTION It has been a good week for the Huckleberry and his predictions and it looks like another announcement is coming soon from one of the Dawgs most recent targets, QB Jacob Park of Goose Creek, SC.  Park is 6'3.5 a little over 200 pounds and looks the part of a prototypical pocket passer.  However,...

Nick Chubb Commits to the G! The Dawgs landed the commitment from the best running back in the state!  Huge get for Mark Richt and the Dawgs!  While this commitment isn't exactly unexpected it still means a lot for the momentum in this class, especially in the state of Georgia where UGA has had a little trouble keeping the...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Jake Edwards – 6'4 280 – Finally earning the offer that he had long coveted, Jake Edwards almost immediately committed to the Bulldogs when Mark Richt offered him over the weekend.  Edwards is one of those guys that has long dreamed of playing for UGA and has really transformed...

KnoxB Recruiting Update (6/8/13) Coaching staff recruiting Lorenzo Carter like he's number one for the class.Lorenzo Carter is Mark Richt's top priority for this class and I don't think it's even close. There are definitely positions we have a deeper need from than OLB but that doesn't come...

Mark Richt Speaks the TRUTH!! I am enjoying the Mark Richt we are seeing this off-season.  A little more intense, a little more assertive, not playing any games and as always speaking the truth.  When I heard the news break regarding the Harvey-Clemmons situation of course I was disappointed but I didn't have a sense of...

Better Head Coach - Bobo or Grantham? You can tell football withdraw is starting to set in when you start having debates with co-workers that end up in an e-mail chain of approximately 50 e-mails going back and forth arguing over who would make the better Head Coach – Grantham or Bobo?So  I wanted to throw this topic out there...

The KEY to Dawgs Recruiting This Summer In the Class of 2013 there was no lack of leadership which is one of the most important thing in Recruiting.  This leadership cannot come from Mark Richt, Todd Grantham, Mike Bobo or any other UGA coaches.  It has to come from several vocal players within the class.  They are the guys that...

SUSPENDED?? - Say it Ain't So Harvey-Clemmons In the first true bad news of the off-season it appears that JHC could be facing a 1 game suspension for his 1st substance abuse related issue at the University of Georgia.Reports are surfacing that the reason Harvey-Clemmons roommate and TE, Ty Smith, left school was because of being...

Richt - FAST but not TOO FAST In this season's UGA Days a major topic of discussion has been the tempo of the Dawgs offense in 2014.   With an experienced signal caller in Aaron Murray, an experienced offensive line and loads of depth/talent at the skill positions many have been encouraging Bobo to play with an uptempo...

Dawgs Too Big to Play Fast There has been a lot made of Coach Richt and Coach Bobo wanting the Dawgs to play at a faster pace in the 2013 season.  They have an experienced QB in Aaron Murray that can read the defense from the line of scrimmage and call the appropriate audible.  They have running backs, receivers and tight...

Can you believe Jarvis Jones was the 17th pick??? It is absolutely ridiculous that Jarvis was chosen 17th in the draft. Because of a bad workout? Because of medical concerns? Because of a slower-than-expected 40 time?  The NFL is looking more and more like the NBA drafting young men on potential not on what they accomplished on the field for 3-4...

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

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...

WILL Harvey-Clemmons REACH His POTENTIAL? This is something I want to get the opinion of the Bulldog Nation on.  Is UGA making a mistake with Josh Harvey-Clemmons?  Mark Richt and Todd Grantham have both made it abundantly clear that Harvey-Clemmons is one of the most athletically gifted players on the roster and could be a big-time...

Toby Johnson HUGE last minute get for UGA Let me just say, that nobody expected Toby Johnson to sign with UGA last night. He was fresh off two visits in a row to Auburn (two weeks ago), and Mississippi State this past weekend. The thinking was UGA had stopped it's recruitment of Johnson sometime last month because of academic...

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

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #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 - #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...

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...

2014 Recruiting Starts NOW!! 2014 UGA Recruiting Prospects

Has Richt LEARNED a LESSON? This is a question for the Bulldog Nation.  This season UGA put all of their eggs in one basket on Laremy Tunsil at offensive tackle.  This was a year when UGA needed to sign at least 5 offensive lineman.  Will Mark Richt learn his lesson and put more offers out there and...

Don't Hate on Reuben I felt sorry for him during his announcement. He has lost two mentors and friends in Trooper and his coach at Troupe highschool. He loves all 3 schools and had a tough time picking one (he didn't sound confident maybe not over). The recruiting process is probably already reallly tough and...

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...

WHAT in the WORLD HAPPENED with Tunsil?!?!?! It is times like these that remind you that you are are dealing with very impressionable young men when it comes to recruiting.  There is no greater evidence than what has happened over the last few days with Laremy Tunsil.

Dee Liner REACHES OUT to UGA!?!?!?! In an unexpected turn of events on the recruiting trail the 6'2 280 pound defensive end from Muscle Shoals, Alabama reached out to the Dawgs to see if the Bulldogs have room in the class for him.  It is now being reported that Mark Richt got on the UGA jet...

Bellamy ALL Dawg?? Not Quite Yet... Davin Bellamy has made it official that he has de-committed from Florida State and this appears to be a solid de-commitment.  As a matter of fact he is not even considering the Noles at this point and has cancelled his in-home visit with Jimbo...

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

Dawg's Have GREAT Recruiting Weekend This weekend the Dawgs has Reuben Foster, Alvin Kamara, Davin Bellamy, and Montravius Adams on campus.  It is their biggest single recruiting weekend of the year in terms of talent.  Word coming out of Athens is that all of the players really enjoyed...

Montravius Adams Pre-Visit PREDICTION Adams is coming off an incredibly busy last few weeks of recruiting.  He has already been to Florida, Clemson, and Alabama.  His two remaining visits are to Georgia this weekend and then Auburn the following weekend.  He had a good time on his visit to...

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...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - A 5-STAR Recruiting Weekend!! Wow, what a crazy New Year it has been!  I started a new job and have been incredibly busy trying to get my feet on the ground.  I have not had the time to go through my e-mail's and do my research regarding recruiting so I didn't want to waste your time with "half-ass" work.  With that said, I...

Next three weekends will determine 2013 class UGA only had one uncommitted recruit on campus last week for an official. That's about to change as UGA will be getting into the heat of their official visits starting next weekend. January 18, 2013- Laremy Tunsil January 25, 2013- Reuben Foster,...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA Quarterback Situation Aaron Murray's return to UGA sent shockwaves through Athens and made numerous fans of that "Trade School" on North Avenue let out a few expletives.  Murray is not far away from breaking a lot of SEC quarterback records and pile on a bunch of UGA records.  However, it did not only send shockwaves...

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,...

Todd Grantham and staff hires Mississippi State D-Line coach Chris Wilson Well, that didn't take long. Just fifteen days ago, Rodney Garner had announced that he would be retunring back to his alma mater. Kipp Adams of ESPN's DawgNation just broke the news that MSU's defensive line coach and co-defensive coordinator Chris Wilson has accepted the vacancy left by long...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - GRINCH Recruiting Mailbag Update!! @Kfoge - I guess the obvious question is how do you see Garner's absence affecting the recruitment of M Adams and T Johnson and anyone else I may be forgetting? There is no doubt that Garner was a solid recruiter but I don't...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Jonathan Rumph - Rumph has officially signed his Letter or Intent to the Georgia Bulldogs.  I can't tell you what a huge get a playeer like Rumph is for UGA.  At 6'5 215 pounds many would like to compare him to A.J. Green but that is an unfair comparison for anyone.  I compare...

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...

Junior Days & Scholarship OFFERS! It is that time of year again where recruiting kicks into high gear.  Not only for the Class of 2013 but also for the Class of 2014.  The Dawgs have already hosted their 1st Junior Day this weekend and will be holding them on a weekly basis after the Capital One Bowl.  What does this mean?  You...

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...

Hutson Mason RUMORS! There are a lot of rumors floating around right now about the situation with Aaron Murray and Hutson Mason and I am going to take this opportunity to tell you what I have heard.  The rumor floating around is that Mark Richt told Hutson Mason that Murray would be leaving after this season no...

Dawgs Making Their MOVE on Montravius Adams Alabama started their big push on Montravius Adams on Thursday with Nick Saban showing up at his high school.  Right now Alabama is still battling to get into the fight and make it a legit Top 3 for Adam's signature in February.  Right now it is Clemson and Georgia out front and the Bulldogs are...

IDIOTIC Article on AJC "Should UGA hire Trooper Taylor".  I mean seriously.  What an absolutely ridiculous premise for an article because there is no chance in hell that it would ever happen.  Do you think Mark Richt would ever bring in a scumbag like that, that uses every dirty trick in the book to get a recruit to...

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

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

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...

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

Confident But NOT Disrespectful By now you have all heard Bacarri Rambo's comments made on ESPN radio.  If you have been living under a rock Rambo said, "I feel like we are more talented.  We have better players at each position, across the board, especially on defense.  It's gonna be a great challenge, I know its gonna be a...

BETTER than EVER? As far as I am concerned this is the best team UGA has had under Mark Richt.  Other Bulldog teams may have had bigger stars, better offenses, or better defenses but there has never been a team like this.  There is something different, something special about this group of players.  As you...

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

Blackout vs. Tech? There have been rumors circulating around campus that the students are asking fans to wear black this weekend against Tech.  It will be interesting to see if Richt goes along with the idea in his Friday press conference and says something like the team really wants the  fans to be in all black....

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...

A Plaque for Shawn Williams In the post practice interview it was brought to Shawn Williams attention that Florida put a plaque up after Tim Tebow gave his now immortal speech after the Gators lost at home to Ole Miss in 2008.  Tebow's speech is known as "The Promise".  Mark Weiszer brought that up after practice yesterday...

Alabama Fans SMACK Talk for SEC Championship Usually the weekend heading into the Iron Bowl the Alabama fans are completely focused on Auburn. They are talking smack about the Barn and aren't capable of thinking about anything else. This year with Auburn a holding a dismal 3-8 record the Tide fans appear to have turned their attention...

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...

Dawgs BIG Weapon! When someone asks you about the Dawgs receiving corp the first names that come up are Tavares King, Malcolm Mitchell, Chris Conley, and injured players Michael Bennett and Marlon Brown. If someone asks you about the Georgia tight ends the first name that comes to mind is Arthur Lynch. But going...

Another Decommitment Soon? We are starting to hear even stronger rumors coming out of Goose Creek High School about the status of Tramel Terry's commitment to UGA.  All of the rumors started when Tramel Terry visited Clemson a few weeks ago and his HS coach came out and said Terry had a great time and that they had really...

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

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

Mark Richt Wouldn't Be UNEMPLOYED Long There are two very different camps of fans in the Bulldog Nation.  Fans either love Mark Richt or think he should go.  There doesn't really seem to be an inbetween area.  I am a big fan of Mark Richt.  I think he is a great role model and does things the right way.  The fans who don't like Mark...

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

Are You KIDDING Me? There is NO Chance! During Mark Richt's post practice news conference yesterday he still had an air of intensity surrounding himself regarding this weekends game against Auburn.  When asked by a reporter if UGA might be overlooking Auburn he smirked and said, "Are you kidding me?  There's no chance."  I love it,...

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...

Mark Richt Is Not FOOLING Around This Week! You can tell that Mark Richt is focused and fired up for this weekend's game against Auburn.  I am sure he is hoping that the team will take his mindset and bring intensity from the opening kickoff.  That is an aspect of the game where UGA has struggled so far this season, they tend to be slow...

More GOOD News from Montravius Adams! This video was posted on YouTube and it is an interview with Keith Neighbur (247Sports) with Montravius Adams following his visit to UGA.  What you can tell about Montravius...

Montravius Adams UGA Bound? This weekend Montravius Adams was in Athens for the second time this season.  His first visit to Athens was a little over a month ago for the UGA v. Tennessee game.  He enjoyed Athens but was unsure of how he fit in the 3-4 scheme and underwhelmed by the performance of the Georgia defense.  My...

BIG Injury at Practice? Today John Jenkins was unable to go at practice because of an ankle sprain he sustained in practice on Tuesday.  The question now facing the Bulldogs is will he be ready to go against Ole Miss.  I have been reading a few comments where people don't think him being out would hurt too much because...

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

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

Grantham's INTENSITY Resurfaced Leading into the Florida game I had not seen the same intensity from Grantham that I saw last season and I think it had reflected in the performance of the defensive unit.  Against the Gators the intensity resurfaced in a big way.  The first instance came before kickoff even started when Gator...

Dawgs Celebration that Changed Everything! One thing Mark Richt does not get enough credit for in my opinion is the celebration he ordered in the 2007 UGA v. Florida game.  Since that celebration the tide in this series has shifted from complete Florida dominance to a very even series.  It used to be before Georgia even showed up in...

Is HOT SEAT Talk Over? We all know the statistics.  UGA has struggled over the last several years against Top 10 teams.  Considering that UGA had consistently brought in Top 10 recruiting classes under Mark Richt pundits and fans blamed the coaches.  At first it was popular to blame...

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...

Intensity = FOUND! Since Shawn Williams comments after practice on Monday there appears to be a new found intensity at the Bulldogs practices.  The #1 defense has been going up agains the #1 offense to truly replicate the speed of the Gators and it has been getting chippy.  There...

Ray Drew LOVES a Good COCKTAIL PARTY!! With Abry Jones out for the season Ray Drew's time has finally arrived.  It has been difficult for the 6'5 285 pound former 5-star prospect to remain patient, but his patience is about to be rewarded.  While Ray Drew is not likely to start he will be the first defensive end off the bench behind...

Gator Fans CONFIDENT & Maybe a Little NERVOUS As usual on Monday and Tuesday leading into a big game I like to spend some time on the opponents website to see how their fans are feeling.  So this weekend I took some time to visit GatorSports forums and read what the Florida faithful have to say.  If I had only one way to describe how the...

Dawgs to STEAL Recruit from Auburn? The Barn is burning.  The Auburn message boards are on fire with people insisting that Auburn fire Gene Chizik.  While some say the $7 million buyout Auburn would have to pay if they fired Chizik will prevent them from firing him a majority say that isn't even a factor.  I don't believe the...

There are NO "Gimmies" The UGA special teams are absolutely abysmal.  We don't cover kicks well, we aren't returning kicks well, we send Rhett McGowan back to return punts, and we can't make an extra point.  With this team it has become apparent that their are no gimmies.  We can't make anything ever look easy.  I...

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

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...

Does Richt DESERVE Another Year? After the 0-2 start to last season their was a lot of talk that the Dawgs would be firing Mark Richt at the end of the season and many names were being thrown out as to who would be the next coach.  All the Dawgs did after that was win 10 consecutive games.  This season UGA got off to a 5-0...

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

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

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

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

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...

Oh No! I AGREE With Gamecock Fans? I have spent some time on the Cockytalk forum listening to what South Carolina fans have to say about this weekends game against UGA and of course their is the usual trash talk and heated debate.  While I disagree with many things they have to say on their, being a Dawg fan, there is one thing...

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...

This is a DIFFERENT Gamecock Defense When Ellis Johnson left South Carolina and headed to Southern Miss to take the head coaching fans many Dawg fans sighed in relief.  The Ellis Johnson led Gamecock defenses had tortured Mark Richt and Mike Bobo for years.  UGA always had trouble sustaining consistent drives and quarterbacks had...

Offensive Line NEEDS to "Man Up" Against Gamecocks In Mark Richt's teleconference today he was asked a question about how UGA would block South Carolina's outstanding defensive ends Jadeveon Clowney and Devin Taylor.  Richt went into an answer explaining how it would be difficult for the Dawgs to slide protection one way or another...

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

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

The Champ Bailey Experiment Begins In his meeting with the media yesterday Mark Richt said that Malcolm Mitchell will be spending Tuesday in the meeting room and on the practice field with the receivers.  Then on Wednesday he will return to the defensive meeting room and practice with the defense.  Then, on Saturday the Dawgs...

Dawgs to ADD Commitment on Saturday? **Updated** We are hearing from several sources now that Kelsey Griffin is planning to be in Athens on Saturday night for the Vanderbilt game.  This is a little bit of a surprise because Griffin was not expected to take an visits until he announced his decision between South Carolina and Vanderbilt.  I...

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

Go Ahead and Decommit!! This whole Trenton Brown situation has been irritating the hell out of me since he came back from his visit to Florida.  When he comes back from Florida he says that "Florida is my leader", well then why in the hell are you still committed to UGA? If he had any guts he would have gotten on the...

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

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...

Christian Lemay’s BIG Chance This weekend when the Bulldogs face Florida Atlantic the Dawgs should head into halftime with a dominant lead.  That should allow Christian Lemay to finally get the opportunity to see a significant amount of playing time.  This is something I am very excited to see and I think a lot of the...

Are the Dawgs Going to Run the Spread? Aaron Murray guessed that UGA was in 4-wide receiver sets for around 30 offensive plays in the second half.  For UGA that is much more than usual because the Dawgs typically have at least one tight end on the field and quite often a fullback.  Against Missouri, the most often personnel group was...

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...

Gurley - "Still Has Work to Do" Todd Gurley is quickly becoming one of the players I most enjoy watching.  I love the way he goes from 0-60 on a kickoff return immediately and hits it going north and south.  It reminds me a lot of the way Brandon Boykin returned kickoffs but it is from a guy that is 35 pounds heavier.  I have...

What is Going through Reuben Foster’s Mind? In an interview with Radi Nabulsi, Tray Matthew's father chimed in with a "Go Dawgs" at the end of the interview.  If you remember comment's recently from Tray, he said that it is really important to his parents that he honor the commitment that he made to UGA and Mark Richt. So that...

The Play That CHANGED Georgia’s Season Jarvis Jones made a bunch of huge individual plays in the Missouri game last weekend but know play looms larger than the play of Richard Samuel on the fake punt.  It was one of the greatest individual efforts I have ever seen and it completely changed the momentum of the game.  Take a look at it...

Harvey-Clemons to Play Big Role against Mizzou The more details that are coming out about UGA's preparation for this weekend's game for Missouri the more you hear the name Josh Harvey-Clemons.  I wrote a few weeks ago that part of the reason UGA was preparing him at the "star" position was to cover Dorial Green-Beckham, the 6'6 monster wide...

Dawg Fans Finally Get Good News According to Mark Richt yesterday UGA looked a lot healthier in practice than they did on Tuesday.  Let's hope that progression continues today.  Ken Malcome, Marlon Brown, and Richard Samuel were practicing at 100% with no limitations.  John Theus, Watts Dantzler, and Malcolm Mitchell were all...

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...

Corey Moore and Harvey-Clemons Not Ready? When watching film on the UGA defense against Buffalo there were several things that stood out.  There was a lack of intensity, it seemed like there focus was wandering a little bit, however the most noticeable problem was the play of Connor Norman.  Now, there is no doubt that Connor Norman is...

Can UGA Survive Injuries & Suspensions? Throughout fall practice UGA stayed remarkably healthy so it came as quite the shock when Malcolm Mitchell sprained his ankle during the walk through on Thursday afternoon.  Marlon Brown also had a minor hamstring strain which kept him out of the game.  On Saturday, UGA added three offensive...

Mark Richt - Press Conference Updates Today at noon, Mark Richt will be having his first game week press conference of the season.  There are many questions that could potentially be answered in the press conference this afternoon and we will be here to update you.  Follow this thread throughout the afternoon for updates.  GO...

UGA Indoor Practice Facility Coming Sooner?? This upcoming week the UGA coaches and athletic department staff will find out one reason it is essential that UGA builds an indoor practice facility.  Hurricane Isaac is going to make landfall on Wednesday morning and bring heavy rain to Athens all day Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday which...

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...

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

What Will Richt Do About Suspensions? The only confirmed suspensions for UGA's season opening game as of this moment are Chase Vasser (2 Games) and Sanders Commings (2 Games).  Unless you have been living under a rock you also know that their are pending suspensions for Alec Ogletree and Bacarri Rambo.  In a different approach by...

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

UGA Offense Taking a Step Back in 2012? When you head back to Athens this fall or tune in for the first game of the season on TV you may see a big change from the offense.  Last season the offense went to a primarily shotgun offense with their own version of the hurry-up to get more plays.  There are rumors floating around Athens that...

UGA Unprepared for Missouri? One of the things that Mark Richt has been most disappointed with during fall camp and fall practice is the weather.  The weather has largely been cloudy and/or rainy with cool temperatures.  Typically this time of year in Athens you can depend on 90+ degree days every day, but this year over a...

"Evil Richt" is Here to Stay When Mark Richt was hired to UGA people knew him as the offensive guru behind Florida State's success under Bobby Bowden.  Then, he came to Athens and fans learned that he was a good Christian man that put God and his family first.  He had immediate success at UGA winning SEC Championships but...

Coach Richt Checking Team’s Ego After 2nd Scrimmage Richt made the following statement after the teams second scrimmage of the fall - "I did not see a team that was ready to be a great...I saw a team that was still pretty good".  Overall his remarks about the scrimmage were pretty disparaging.  He said there was some good things he saw out there,...

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...

Will UGA Get Marquez North? Marquez North is one of the most highly coveted high school wide receivers in the nation.  At 6'4 215 pounds physically he looks like a cross between A.J. Green and Julio Jones.  On film you see that physical ability and it immediately wows you and you see the incredible amount of potential this...

Reuben Foster Made a Big Mistake When Reuben Foster decided to commit to Auburn I was just as surprised as everyone else.  With the relationship that he had developed with the UGA staff and in particular Coach Richt I thought that UGA was the inevitable choice.  Then all of the sudden he chooses Auburn shocking his best friend...

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...

The Beginning of a UGA Dynasty I had a great conversation last night with several SEC alumni and a great conversation came up.  What if UGA was able to win a BCS Championship this season?  I was expecting everyone to talk about how exciting it would be for the SEC to win another title but the discussion went in the direction...

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...

UGA is Changing Recruiting Philosophy UGA has made a major shift in their recruiting philosophy over the last couple of seasons.  When Mark Richt took over at UGA in 2001 the Dawgs went from 2001-2006 recruiting class without recruiting any junior college transfers.  Then, in 2007 UGA signed 4 JC transfers in Scott Haverkamp, Corey...

Join A Great Cause - Kasyn Cares The following was posted on Leather Helmet Blog and I thought it deserved to be posted here as well because it is a message that needs to get out.  This is a cause the entire DawgNation should support. Are you ready for some football? I can tell you the Grantham...

Jarvis Jones - UGA’s Best Leader since David Pollack There is no denying that UGA has had a great deal of talent since Mark Richt has been in Athens.  Every year UGA has brought in a Top 10 recruiting class reloading with some of the best players in the nation.  So why has UGA not been one of the SEC teams to win a National Championship over the...

Kolton Houston Making a Play for Eligibility? It has been widely reported amongst the UGA players that Kolton Houston has not been at practice the last two days for UGA.  He is not sick and he does not have an injury.  Also, the abscenses were approved by Mark Richt which has many people thinking what could this be? I hope that he it...

New Mindset in Athens During Camp In reading through player interviews, coach interviews, and listening to the Sirius College Roadshow stop in Athens it really seems like their is a new mindset in Athens.  The coaches sound more intense and focused.  The players appear to have a new sense of accountability.  I know this is...

Everybody Knows that Saban Cheats It kills me when I listen to all of these Bama fans talking about how great their program is.  They think it is the best thing in the world and that they have never lost a game before and never will.  That is their attitude and it kills me.  In the office I work at in Atlanta I work with tons of...

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...

Kolton Houston Announcement Mark Richt is going to make an announcement about Kolton Houston's status during a press conference today.  While there are many rumors floating around about what will be announced but we are not going to speculate until we have the facts. What we are hearing from reliable sources is that...

Richt and The Derrick Henry Dilemna As I have been saying for about 3 months it was inevitable that Derrick Henry was going to decommit.  It is not because he is bad guy or has no loyalty, it is because he was a kid who got caught up in the moment at Dawg Night last year and made a commitment when he was not yet ready. It...

Mailbag Answer #2 - Laremy Tunsil...Has UF Dropped on His List Laremy is a huge prospect on the board for UGA in my opinion.  I believe he is more of a natural Left Tackle than John Theus.  If the Bulldogs are able to bring in Tunsil and Theus can be a mauling Right Tackle then the Bulldogs could potentially have the best bookend tackles in the country...

Read This and You Will Know How SPECIAL Kublanow Is!! His nickname is "The Finisher"  Here are some quotes about him and by him: “Along with being big, strong and powerful, Brandon is just a ferocious football player – and I mean that in the best possible way,” Walton coach Rocky Hidalgo said. “He's just fierce. He's not...

Good News for our chances with Robert Nkemdiche here's the espn insider article LOGANVILLE, Ga. -- Last Thursday, Mark Richt announced that Daryl Jones had joined the Bulldogs' staff as the new director of on-campus recruiting. The news spread quickly, especially to the nation's No. 1 recruit.

UGA is Changing Recruiting Philosophy UGA has made a major shift in their recruiting philosophy over the last couple of seasons.  When Mark Richt took over at UGA in 2001 the Dawgs went from 2001-2006 recruiting class without recruiting any junior college transfers.  Then, in 2007 UGA signed 4 JC transfers in Scott Haverkamp, Corey...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Offensive Line Dream Team: We look like we have the opportunity to put together an incredible recruiting class of offensive lineman for 2013.  Already onboard is Aulden Bynum a 6'5 275 3-star tackle.  Then, you have fellow offensive tackles recruits Laremy Tunsil [5-star...

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...

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

Hey Spurrier.....Say Hello to My Little Friends

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...

As I Get More Information on the Suspsensions... UGA made the decision as a football team to make the entire team submit to drug tests when they returned from Spring Break.  That was just looking for trouble.  For these kids it was an opportunity to go a little wild before the grind of spring practice and summer workouts began.  While that...

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...

UGA May FINALLY Have the Missing Man in 2012 When UGA was recruiting Isaiah Crowell as a part of the 2011 recruiting class Coach Richt had the starting offense players (minus a tailback) line up in the I-formation.  They led him down from Richt's office to the indoor practice field and let him dot the I.  Everyone thought that UGA had...

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...

Malcolm Mitchell an ALL-AMERICAN Cornerback Rivals.com had Malcolm Mitchell ranked as the #1 CB in the country coming out of High School in the 2011 recruiting class.  Nick Saban thought enough of Mitchell to say that he believed he was the best corner prospect he had ever seen coming out of HS.  Only 2 days into spring practice Mitchell...

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...

Twitter Banned for UGA Players? What good is Twitter for the UGA football players?  It is no good.  I know that a majority of the players are responsible with their Twitter pages and don't post anything controversial but it never leads to anything positive.  I remember the pictures that were posted of Isaiah Crowell during his...

DeVondre Seymour to Commit to UGA this Week? There have been rumors floating around that DeVodnre Seymour might make a decision this week!  As we all know with his close relationship with Richard Seymour and the family's outstanding relationship with Coach Richt he is likely to pick UGA.  DeVondre would be an outstanding pickup and get the...

ImYourHuckleberry - Early Robert Nkiemdiche Prediction Robert Nkiemdiche has set a decision date of May 18th.  There is a lot more information that can come out between now and then but he recently told the AJC, "I'm ready to commit because I know where I want to go.  I feel like I've seen all the places I needed to see, and talked to all the...

The New UGA Way to DISCIPLINE Players! Mark Richt made it clear that he believes UGA does not have a discipline problem.  I think he is right - UGA does not have a discipline problem.  You don't hear about players skipping class, skipping workouts, or going out and partying to all hours of the night.  However, what you have is a...

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...

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

Should UGA Offer David Kamara?? Many of you have probably heard the name David Kamara recently.  No, David is not related to Alvin Kamara the stud running back out of Norcross, GA.  David is a teammate and best friend of Robert Nkiemdiche.  Ole Miss was the first to offer Kamara on Wednesday and now UGA is presented with the...

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....

Revisiting Saban’s ARROGANCE and Richt’s EXCELLENCE How many of you have heard of Ian Rapoport.  Those of you who have probably remember him from an infamous exchange with Nick Saban.  At that time Rapoport was a reporter for the Birmingham News now he is a reporter for the Boston Herald.  The exchange went as followed:

Tramel Terry COMMITS to DAWGS and What it MEANS!! I told you on Sunday morning not be disappointed in V.I.D.

Mark Richt - The Reason REUBEN FOSTER Will Be A DAWG!! Reuben Foster, the top HS linebacker in the nation will be visiting Athens this weekend despite a very tumultuos week.  His HS coach was fired by the school amid unknown accusations this week.  For many of his players the firing was devastating and left them without a man that many of them...

Mark Richt Taking NEW Approach to Recruiting in 2013 It is fun to watch UGA's recruiting efforts for the 2013 class at this moment.  In the past at this point UGA would have normally offerred scholarships to about 40 or players and still be right in the middle of their evaluation process.  However, at this point UGA has already offered about 75...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - Early Look at 2013 Prospect – ILB – Larenz Bryant Larenz Bryant is a 6'2 215 pound LB from Vance High School in Matthews, North Carolina.  Larenz will likely be ranked as a 4-star prospect and will be in the running for the top ranked player in North Carolina.  As everyone knows, UGA has had great success with recruiting inside North Carolina...

Richt & Grantham Angry - Malcom Mitchell to Defense Chris Sanders, Nick Marshall, and Sanford Seay all kicked off the team.  Here we go again.  We have some lofty expectations heading into next season and the depth chart is getting thinner and thinner.  Especially at defensive back where are down 2 players from an already thin depth chart.  This...

Could Brice Ramsey Switch to Alabama? Alabama has officially offered Brice Ramsey. Everyone knew that this was coming eventually but the question is does Brice have any interest in Alabama, because if he does – you can never rule Alabama out.

ImYourHuckleberry - Daily Recruiting Update - 1/24/12 Kendarious Whitehead UpdateWhitehead's recruitment is not over. Richt, Grantham, and Garner are all in home today.

And That My Friends Is What Oversigning Will Do For You! That was complete and total domination by the Crimson Tide in the BCS Championship Game.

That doesn’t guarantee that everybody 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...

Bobo’s Playcalling Embarassing in Outback Bowl The playcalling by Mike Bobo in the Outback Bowl against Michigan State was horrendous. The strength of the Michigan State defense was up the middle and Bobo kept calling play after play running right into the strength of the defense. There was not a single toss-sweep run all game and we did not...

What UGA Needs to Do Now We can't underestimate the impact the next few weeks will have on the UGA program for the next 4 years. It all starts with the Florida game. The SEC East Crown is an insignificant benefit of a win there. Right now all of the Florida teams are in disarray. Georgia should win this game and...

No Discipline Mark Richt has got to get these players under control..These guys getting these penalties are costing yardage and could cost the team a game..We have had this problem for a few years now.The personal foul calls are killing us. The late hits way after a play is over is just giving the other team more...

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

New Culture at UGA Leads to Exodus of Players It is clear that the culture has changed at UGA.

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...

30 Carries to Much for Crowell Last Saturday in Oxford, Isaiah Crowell rushed the ball 30 times for 147 yards. For his first 10 carries he was very explosive. He was breaking tackles, keeping his balance, and fighting for every last yard. After those first 10 it seemed that his speed, acceleration, and ability to break tackles...

Coach Richt to UNC I am a Bulldog, born and bred. However, I have lived in North Carolina for the majority of my life. I listen to WFNZ 610 AM, the local sports radio station, every day and today’s topic was who will be the next head coach of the North Carolina Tarheels. The overwhelming sentiment from...

Richt & Bobo Making the Conversion to the Spread This year has been a very different offense than in years past. UGA is spending a majority of the game in the no-huddle and also running many more plays out of the shotgun. It seems that we are beginning to make a conversion to the spread offense. This would be a major change in philosophy at UGA...

Aaron Murray is NOT Matthew Stafford Aaron Murray is one of the best QB’s ever to step onto the field “Between the Hedges”. He is mobile, accurate, and has good arm strength. At the end of the day he will probably break a majority of the records set by his predecessors. However, he is not Matthew Stafford. Watching...

Isaiah Crowell is Not Ready Isaiah Crowell is an undeniably a talented running back. He has excellent speed, agility, strength, and balance. Crowell also runs over his pads, which makes him tough to bring down on first contact. Flashes of all of these skills have come early and often this season. However, Crowell is not...

Richt Will Be Back UGA Head Coach in 2012 I have a feeling that this week will be the start of the turnaround for UGA football under Mark Richt. We will win this game. That is not even a question. We will win by at least 40 points. I don’t believe that is in question either. What this team really needs with all of its young players it...

Come On Buck Belue - You are Better than the Garbage You Write The blog Buck Belue wrote after the UGA vs. South Carolina game was complete garbage. If you have not read the blog he wrote here it is:“That one hurt. But so do all the defeats. Having been around some great football coaches, the first thing you do is tip your cap to the opponent....

You Can’t Blame Richt, Grantham, or Bobo for This Loss Mike Bobo came out with a very solid gameplan to attack the South Carolina defense. Todd Grantham had this team ready to play on defense and they contained Marcus Lattimore quite well and Alshon Jeffrey did not dominate. Mark Richt had these players mentally and physically ready to play this game....

Richt is Angry & That is Good! After a disappointing loss to Boise State fans and media all across the country are already writing off Coach Richt. People are saying it is inevitable that he will no longer be head coach at the end of the year. They are searching for controversy; the only news is bad news. That seems to be the...

Coach Bobo, How About Using 2 Tight Ends?? Perhaps the deepest position on the UGA roster is the tight ends. When you look at the depth chart you have four tight ends that could start for anyone in America. All-American candidate Orson Charles headlines the group and he is supported by Aron White, Arthur Lynch, and Jay Rome. Each of these...

Richt to Take Over Playcalling from Bobo? I have always liked and supported Coach Richt. I think he is a good man who does things the right way off the field. He genuinely cares for his players and wants to see them grow up to productive members of the community. I would love to see him on the UGA sidelines for years to come.

UGA vs. BOISE STATE - Key Players on Offense UGA OFFENSE:Aaron MurrayIt all begins with Aaron Murray for the UGA offense. He is surrounded by talented playmakers and needs to distribute the ball to all of his weapons. Murray needs to make smart decisions and get the team out of bad plays. He should have...

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...

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

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

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

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

Therefore, instead of writing pointless articles with ludicrous premises like, “Fire Richt and hire Mike...

Season Review - #6 Logan Gray Logan Gray is a great young man who loves the University of Georgia. He came to UGA recruited as an Elite 11 quarterback from Missouri. When he signed in 2007 many people believed that he would redshirt and become the next UGA quarterback when Matthew Stafford left. However, he never really...

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...

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

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

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

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

Defense Beginning to Take On Coach Grantham’s Personality In the opening game of the 2010 Season, UGA held a 24-0 lead over Louisiana-Lafayette with a minute left before half time. Then, Chris Masson hit LaDarius Green for a 60-yard touchdown pass and the Bulldog Nation groaned but was not overly disappointed knowing the game was already in hand against an...

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

Step Up Dawg Fans!!!! Show your Loyalty and Support!!!! Enough Said..Fill the Stadium next week...Stop being "Arm Chair Coaches and Quarterbacks"....Trust that Coach Richt and his Staff know what to do to turn this season around...Trust that the players have the same passion as you and will fight and scratch for the remainder of the season...No more...

Richt Or No Richt…Support Your Team! It’s not easy being a Dawg these days.As we sit on lowly floor of the SEC East standings, so many questions about our team are arising. Why are we losing so much? Is this an end of an era? Should we fire Mark Richt? At this point, it’s hard to argue anyone’s logic on the subject. The...

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

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

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

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

Nick Marshall Commits to the DAWGS!! Another member of the Georgia "Dream Team" Nick Marshall has committed to be a DAWG!!He is an excellent athlete that plays the QB position in HS and has been ranked as high as #10 in the country at that position by some recruiting services but will be a safety at UGA. He has great speed...

88 Days Until Kickoff: #88 Arthur Lynch Orson Charles is not the best pure tight end on the UGA roster in 2010. Neither is Aron White. That is a bold statement considering that many have Orson Charles as first team All-SEC heading into 2010. However, the best pure tight end on UGA’s roster is most likely Arthur Lynch. At...

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...

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

Saturday Six-Pack: Thoughts on the Week that Was (1) Welcome Back Junkyard Dawgs?? Todd Grantham is going to bring a different mentality to the Georgia Bulldogs defense then we saw under Willie Martinez. He is nobody's best friend and is going to demand and expect every players best. He coaches with an intensity and fire that has been missing...

Mark Bradley: Not Heresy....Ridiculous!!! ESPN's Low either is trying to create some active blogging by Dawg fans or he is nuts. Georgia will never...ever...be a second-tier SEC program as long as Coach Richt is the Head Coach. Look at the history of the program since CMR arrived. Look at what we have coming back next year. We will...

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

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

Spring Outlook 2010 - Running Backs Caleb King – 5'11 215 Coming out of high school we all knew that Caleb King was one of the top rated running backs in the country. Everyone in the Bulldog Nation had high hopes for him and until the Auburn game last year we never really knew what he had. However in the last four games of the...

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

Physical & Attacking Defense - Welcome to UGA Coach Grantham I have read many articles on Coach Grantham and he is a very knowledgeable and intense coach. From his time as coordinator with the Cleveland Browns (regardless of the fact that they had inferior talent) he led a very physical and attacking style defense. He likes to play very aggressive and...

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...

Urban’s got his priorities right....yea right....what a joke... This is now comical...Health and Family are priorities 1 and 1A....yea, sure...now, he is going to take a leave of absence...whatever, that means....I will tell you why he came out with this "leave of absence" thing...so, the Gator recruits won't decommit and go elsewhere...with this air of...

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...

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

Next Year Looks like it has come down to this. Talent wise I expect we will be very good. Ealey and King are running the ball better and I think with another year under their belt we should have a very good backfield. WR this group also looks very good. Greene, T King, and Wooten gives us 3 WR that...

Can we stop dancing now???? Part 2 I did not realize how much influence I had with Coach Richt....there was no hip-hop music played during the Auburn game....we remained focused and intense....and we won...I hope everyone went dancing after the game...they deserved it!!!!

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...

A Consequence of Winning the Final Five Games I will preface this by saying we must beat Georgia Tech! I want Tech to win their next couple games leading up to us and be ranked #5 in the country and I want to knock them off their pedestal and ruin their season. However, I think that if we were to win our next three games it could be...

Should Mark Richt be Fired? I thought at Georgia you were measured by beating Florida first and formost. Richt's record agianst Florida is pathetic, with that criteria should Mark Richt be fired?

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