The Forgotten Man for UGA Offense

Top 5 SEC Running Back Units 2015 #1 – Georgia...

ImYourHuckleberry - Everett Golson and UGA There is a great deal of talk regarding Everett Golson and his plans after his decision to leave Notre Dame.  The two names most commonly being thrown around are South Carolina and UGA and both make a lot of sense.  The Gamecocks lost senior starter Dylan Thompson and Everett Golson would bring...

ImYourHuckleberry - 8 Player Predictions for Spring Practice #1 - Keith Marshall is a Stud - All the talk at the running back position is about  Nick Chubb and Sony Michel but Marshall is finally 100% healthy and has a different gear than Chubb or Michel.  Don't be surprised if Marshall goes off for a big G-Day game.#2 - Shattle Fenteng Becomes #1...

Top 14 Early Enrollee's to WATCH this Spring ALABAMA – Deionte Thompson – 6'2 181 – FSAs usual, Alabama has all of the tools to be a Championship team. What seems to have held them back the last couple years is secondary play....

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

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

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...

The Arkansas Razorbacks led the SEC out of the gate this weekend against the UAB should have stayed home put on some Blazers and taken a girl out on a date.  The UAB front seven looked as excited to play the Hogs up front as the owner of an all you can eat buffet when those linemen walk in the...

Best SEC Tailback Duo Ever? There have been some great SEC tailback duo's in the SEC recently. When you go back over the last 10-15 years as the running back position has evolved from a one man show to more of a two man job there have been some unbelievable tailback duo's in the SEC. Just look at some of the best recent...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting Update Unexpected Commit - The Dawgs got big news for the Class of 2015 when defensive lineman Michael Barnett decommited from Florida State and committed to the Dawgs.  The 6'5 261 pound lineman is another "Pruitt Guy".  Pruitt likes guys along the defensive line that can be three down...

ImYourHuckleberry - 5 Goals v. Troy #1 - Get Keith Marshall Going - The Bulldogs are loaded at running back with Gurley, Chubb, Michel and Marshall.  All of those have made big plays this season except for Keith Marshall and it is important that the Bulldogs get Marshall going because he is a huge weapon.  The Dawgs need to get him...

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

Did Vince Dooley sell his football soul to the Devil to get Herschel Walker? Did the Devil come down to Georgia and offer Dooley a once in a lifetime running back in exchange for only one national championship? Has every year since been part of a curse on Georgia in that agreement?Or did Herschel break the deal with the Devil to get out of his senior year and the...

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...

Spurrier's Offense to Provide Much Bigger Test for UGA Defense When the Dawgs faced off against Clemson the Bulldogs were facing an offense designed to attack on the peremiter and use short/intermediate passing routes designed to get their athletes in space.  Also, Clemson had a big group of receivers with 6'2, 6'3 and even 6'4 guys on the perimeter.  The...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - In-Depth Scouting Report of Clemson DEFENSE Yesterday I went in-depth with the Clemson Offense so today it is time to go in depth with the Clemson defense.  Let's go!Personnel:While the Clemson offense is rebuilding this season the Clemson defense is reloading and already loaded group.  Quandon Christian,...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - Early Impressions from Fall Camp Here we are three practices into fall camp and there have been a lot of great things coming out of camp as usual.  However, this year seems a bit different, the tone definitely seems different.  With that being said below are my early impressions from fall camp: Let's...

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...

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

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 – Signing Day Prediction for T.J. Harrell T.J. Harrell is a name that came onto the scene late in the process for the Bulldogs.  The 6'1 210 pound safety from Tampa, FL has an impressive list of offers from the likes of Louisville, Michigan State, Texas and Florida State among others.  At his HS he played running back, linebacker and...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update For UGA the 2014 recruiting class is not huge in numbers but it is loaded with top tier talent.  With 16 commits as of this moment the Bulldogs could only add 1 more member to the class or as many as 4.  Here is a look at the players that are left on UGA's board:Lorenzo Carter -  6'6 235 -...

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

Demoralizing the Gator D! This is what everyone has been waiting for since the LSU game, the return of Todd Gurley - the most talented running back in the nation.  It could not come at a better time for the Bulldogs heading into the Cocktail Party against a Florida defense that boasts one of the best pass defenses in the...

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

Just HOW GOOD are Chubb & Michel? For the longest time UGA fans were searching for a running back that they could compare to  Herschel.  Any time a highly touted running back signed on the dotted line for the Bulldogs whether Rodney Hampton, Garrison Hearst, Kregg Lumpkin, Knowshon Moreno or Todd Gurley the comparisons to...

FANternity Mid-Season ALL-SEC Team After making a great deal of very difficult decisions this is our 2013 Mid-Season All-SEC team.  Who did we leave off?  Who left you think no way he is 1st Team!!  Let us know!QB – Johnny Manziel – Texas A&MRB – Mike Davis – South CarolinaRB – Todd Gurley –...

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

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...

GREATEST College Gameday Signs EVER!! In honor of College Gameday coming back to Athens I would like to share some of my favorite Gameday signs ever in order to help spark creativity for Bulldog fans this weekend. What is your favorite sign I shared below? Do you have any brilliant sign ideas for this weekend? I am sure there are...

Gurley WILL NOT Win the HEISMAN Admittedly, I have not seen every player in all of college football this season.  However, through the first three weeks of the season I feel pretty comfortable saying that it will be one of six players in the country that are in consideration for the Heisman will win the award.  They are Teddy...

#1 RB in Georgia Gets HUGE Offer Today via-Twitter Taj Griffin, the #1 RB in the state of Georgia for the class of 2015, announced that Oregon has officially offered him a scholarship.  Rumor has it that Oregon was at his school today to visit him and offer him in person.  For the 5'10 180 pound all-purpose back this is a huge...

UGA to Use TRIPLE OPTION? In The Red & Black's practice report the student newspaper stated – “The running backs, fullbacks and quarterbacks operated together during all three periods that the media had access to. The three units began by running a triple option set with the quarterbacks handing the ball off to the...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Unless you have been living under a rock for the last couple months you know where UGA's recruiting class stands.  There are probably 4-5 spots left in this class and the Bulldogs would ideally like to sign a combination of David Sharpe (5* LT), Lorenzo Carter (5* OLB), Keyon Brown (4* OLB),...

Clemson Offense Has TRICKS Up Their Sleeve! Last year Clemson had one of the most dynamic offenses in the country, everyone knows that.  As a matter of fact, their offense finished the season averaging 321.6 ypg passing, 191.1 ypg rushing and 41.0 ppg.  I know that many fans out there will say “well that's because they play in the ACC”....

ImYourHuckleberry – Top 10 BREAKOUT Players - #6 Quayvon Hicks – 6'2 257 – FBNot in these exact words but one UGA coach when referencing Hicks play last season said looks like Tarzan plays like Jane trying to light a fire under Hicks.  At 6'2 257 pounds Hicks is very athletic and has a body chiseled from granite.  The problem was he did...

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

Dawgs NOT DONE Recruiting Running Backs? In one of the more interesting developments over the weekend it appears that UGA is still recruiting two RB's very aggressively:  Bo Scarborough and Joe Mixon.  Scarborough and Mixon are two of the most highly sought after RB's in the country and despite the Dawgs having two of the Top 15 RB's in...

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...

Lorenzo CARTER Struggles, Sony Michel SHINES Over the weekend the Rivals 5-Star Challenge was held and there were a number of UGA targets participating.  Through the Twitter (@RivalsCamp) I followed the updates that were provided and watched the free videos that they posted.  From what I read and the video I watched this is what I...

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...

Phil Steels's All America Team EVEN Worse You can view his 2013 All-America team right Here.I recently wrote a blog of my thoughts on Steele's...

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

Race BETWEEN Chubb and Choice It has been well reported that the Dawgs are making running back a priority in the 2014 Recruiting Class.  They definitely want to sign a minimum of two running backs but could go up to three if the combination was right.  As of this moment they already have one commit from Stanley Williams...

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

Dawgs and Bama on a COLLISION Course in 2013! If the Dawg stay healthy through spring and fall practice they will likely be the favorites to win the SEC East for a third straight year in what should be a highly contested division race between the Gamecocks, Gators and Dawgs.  South Carolina undoubtedly has the easiest SEC schedule, avoiding...

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

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...

TOP 5 Recruits Left on UGA Big Board! (1) Laremy Tunsil - Last week I wrote about Laremy Tunsil and how impressed I was with him after having seen film from his senior season.  The more I have watched the more impressed I have become.  Tunsil is easily 6'6 315 and looks well ahead of where John Theus was at the same...

Scheme Change on Dawgs Defense? As we all know Alabama was able to run the ball down the Dawgs throat in the SEC Championship game.  Alabama had to backs run for over 150 yards and were able to control the line of scrimmage with relative ease.  That begs the question will the Dawgs make a small change in scheme headed into...

Dawgs Working to Develop Norcross HS Recruiting PIPELINE Norcross HS is quickly becoming one of the dominant programs in the state of Georgia.  They have a very talented roster full of high level prospects that the Dawgs will be looking to sign over the next couple years.  It all starts this season with Alvin Kamara. Kamara is a 5'10 192 running...

If You Want to See FUTURE Dawg Stars.. On Monday, CSS announced that they would be showing the the Camden County v. Norcross state playoff game on Friday at 7:30PM.  If you follow Georgia HS football closely you know how big of a matchup this is.  It is also a great opportunity for Dawgs fans to see several commits up close and a...

Will Derrick Henry EVER Play RB at Alabama? Once a UGA commit, Derrick Henry had a big a big day in his regional semifinal playoff game this weekend.  He carried the ball 58 times for 482 yards and 6 TD's.  In that game he set the National HS rushing record with 11,610 careeer rushing yards and his career isn't over yet.  That is an...

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

GOOD News & BAD News for Dawgs UGA had an eventful day in terms of recruiting on Tuesday.  First, the #13 Junior College player in the nation Steven Nelson decided to decommit from the Dawgs.  The 6'1 185 CB had been committed to UGA for quite some time and was considered to be a big part of UGA's incoming defensive back...

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

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

UGA v. Ole Miss Prediction Here we are only two days until kickoff in the UGA v. Ole Miss game.  This is a huge game for the Dawgs because they must win to keep their chance of playing in the SEC Championship game alive.  Also, I believe that this is the most difficult game remaining on UGA's schedule.  It is difficult...

Dawgs On The Verge of LOSING Another Commitment? Lately, when it comes to recruiting it has been a lot of bad news for Dawgs fans.  Kelsey Griffin commits to UGA only to find out that UGA would not accept his commitment presumably for academic reasons.  Then, WR Kryin Priester who was reportedly thinking about committing to UGA...

UGA Commit Shows Off His SKILLS! In front of a National TV audience on ESPNU Tramel Terry showed why he is one of the highest ranked athletes in the nation.  The current UGA commit plays for the best team in the state of South Carolina - Goose Creek - and is clearly the best athlete on the field.  The question for the UGA...

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

Spurrier’s Recurring NIGHTMARE!! I had the opportunity yesterday to e-mail a friend of mine who is Gamecock graduate from the class of '81, a prominent member of the Gamecock Club, and a football aficionado.  In the e-mail I asked him some some questions that I thought Dawg fans would like to know and below are  his answers.

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

Todd Gurley Makes Debut on ESPN Heisman List Today ESPN released their updated Heisman Watch Experts Poll.  In this poll Todd Gurley made his first appearance on the list and is ranked in 8th place.  The only other SEC player ranked ahead of him is Aaron Murray who is ranked in 6th place.  Jarvis Jones has fallen completely off the list....

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

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

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

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

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

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA’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...

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

UGA Has Completely Mismanaged Once 5-Star Recruit When Richard Samuel was recruited to UGA he was a 5-star running back/linebacker.  He wanted the opportunity to play RB at the college level so UGA promised him that he could start his career at running back.  While he has shown flashes of talent and ability it became fairly obvious early on...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update The UGA coaches are hitting the road on Friday night to do some recruiting before the Florida Atlantic game on Saturday night.  As of right now the plans appear to be have coaches present at Alvin Kamara, Tyren Jones, Kelsey Griffin, and Montravious Adams.  That is what we are hearing from these...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - Week 3 Predictions Alabama v. Arkansas There are questions surrounding Tyler Wilson but that really does not matter.  The Arkansas offensive is like a turnstyle in a NYC subway.  Whoever they put at QB will get battered for 60 minutes.  Also,...

ImYourHuckleberry - Week 2 Power 16 Rankings #1 - Alabama - Alabama easily dispatched of Western Kentucky and will face an Arkansas Razorbacks team that can't protect the QB and can't stop the run.  Not a good combination when facing the Tide - Bama will Roll! #2 - Oregon - The Ducks have the best...

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...

Salacious Rumors Coming Out of the BARN From what I have seen and heard coming out of Auburn it sounds like fans are ready to burn the place down.  On their message boards there are many fans that have completely jumped off of the Chizik bandwagon.  One poster said it best about Chizik, "Guys, face the facts - without Cam and...

Dawgs Have BEST Defensive Player in the Nation Going largely under the radar this week was the fact that Jarvis Jones strained his groin in practice leading up to this game against Missouri.  Judging by his performance on the field you would have never known that he was hobbled.  It was an amazing game and an amazing performance by the best...

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...

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

Is Branden Smith a Liability?? When you watch Branden Smith play he is an incredibly fluid athlete that never lets his man get to far away from him but he also frustrates the hell out you.  Watching him throughout the game he was blanketed all over opposing receivers but when the ball was thrown his direction he would let the...

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

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

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

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

Up/Down’s - Top 10 Players in Athens after Week 3 of Fall Practice 10) Josh Harvey-Clemons - This may be a little bit of a reach but you cannot deny that JHC is a special athlete.  UGA coaches have gone as far to create a position just for him.  He has been consistently making big hits and picking off passes.  He could be a huge help for the...

UGA 2013 Recruiting Class Still Has MISSING Pieces With the commitment of 6'2 280 pound to Vanderbilt today the UGA class remains at 26 players.  That is an incredible  accomplishment before the 2012season has even began.  Let's take a look at how the UGA class breaks down as of right now.

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

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

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update The 2013 UGA Recruiting Class currently has 24 players.  Most years that would be a complete class for a majority of schools but UGA has room for as many as 32-34 players.  If I had to guess right now I would say it is pretty certain that UGA will meet the minimum of 32 but are open to taking...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Tray Matthews was in Auburn this week with his entire family including his girlfriend.  According to sources his visit to Auburn was great and they told him he would start immediately and made a variety of other promises.  Of course while he was there Tray spent a lot of time...

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

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

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...

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...

Sheldon Dawson and Ole Miss Sheldon Dawson took his official visit to Ole Miss this weekend and it was a very good trip for Dawson. He was able to sit down and speak to new coach Hugh Freeze who is hard after Dawson. Dawson is listed on all of the recruiting websites as a cornerback but Ole Miss is recruiting him to play the...

225 pounds and 4.33 coming to UGA If you talk to people who watched the North Carolina v. South Carolina – Shrine Bowl the first player they are likely to mention is Todd Gurley.

ImYourHuckleberry - Cordarelle Patterson Prediction Cordarelle Patterson is a superstar 6’4 210 wide receiver from Rock Hill, SC.

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...

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...

Although It Was A Loss - There Were So Many Positives 1) The defense is showing great improvement in Year 2 under Todd Grantham. Kwame Geathers has played solid. John Jenkins is really coming on strong. He made some great plays in the running game bring down Lattimore in the backfield. Jarvis Jones is showing that he is a man and will make a lot of...

UGA vs. South Carolina – Key Players on Offense UGA Offensive PlayersTavarres KingKing had a horrible game against Boise State. He did not get open often enough and he also dropped some key passes.

UGA vs. BOISE STATE - Key Players on Offense UGA OFFENSE:Aaron MurrayIt all begins with Aaron Murray for the UGA offense.

UGA’s Next Great Tailback Duo?? After the 2009 Georgia Tech game when Caleb King and Washaun Ealey combined for 38 carries and 349 yards many thought they were witnessing the rise of a dominant duo for the 2010 season and beyond. Due to health concerns, attitude problems, and academic issues that never materialized. In fact,...

Boise State v. UGA - Running Back Matchup This is not your typical position-by-position analysis. My analysis takes into account much more than each player’s skills.

Vote For Who You Think Is The Best UGA RB?? We are working on putting together an All-Time Modern Era UGA Team! This is solely based on their performance while at UGA. We all know that Herschel Walker was the best running back to every play at UGA and everyone would vote for him - So who would you like to be his back up?Musa...

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

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

Season Review #4 – Caleb King When Caleb King stepped on the campus of UGA many fans expected him to be the second coming of Herschel Walker. He had dominated in high school and had unlimited potential we were told. Since arriving at UGA King has not lived up to those expectations. As of this moment he is the...

This is Carlton Thomas’s Chance! Coming into this season it was fully expected that the UGA backfield would be a two man show. Caleb King and Washaun Ealey were outstanding at the end of last season and looked like they could be the 2nd best running back tandem in the SEC behind Alabama. With Ealey's Game 1 suspension...

DawgBark Top 30 - #24 Oregon State Beavers The Beavers enter the season as one of only two teams in the preseason Top 25. The Pac-10 is a conferences that is filled with average to good teams.

DawgBark Top 30 - #27 Cincinnati Bearcats The Cincinnati Bearcats have a lot to prove in 2010. They lost QB Tony Pike, WR Mardy Gilyard, and seven defensive starters. Not to mention Brian Kelly left Cincinnati to attempt to resurrect a floundering Notre Dame team. Therefore, there will be many doubters heading into this season but...

DawgBark Top 30 - #29 West Virginia Mountaineers The Mountaineers return 19 starters from a team that went 9-4 in 2009. They have a very favorable schedule outside of the two very difficult road games at LSU and at Pittsburgh. The Big East will likely be a weak conference this year with only 1 team in the Top 25 to start the season. The biggest...

Top 8 Team WR & TE Depth Charts in the SEC for 2010 (1) UGA – A.J. Green / Orson Charles/ Tavares King / Aron White / Rontavious Wooten / Kris Durham / Marlon Brown / Arthur LynchUGA has the best receiver to play college football since Larry Fitzgerald in A.J. Green. You cannot cover him 1 on 1 and if you do he will make the play 9 times...

Top 8 Team RB Depth Charts in the SEC for 2010 (1) Alabama – Mark Ingram / Trent Richardson / Eddie LacyAlabama is absolutely loaded at the running back position again.

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...

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...
