Quick Thoughts Leading into Alabama Week #1 - Alabama will far and away be the best defense we have faced all season.  Their defensive line is incredibly strong and very stout against the run.  It truly will be strength on strength with our offensive line and tailbacks against their front seven.#2 - If Nick Chubb can run for 100...

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

ImYourHucklelberry - State of the UGA Football Program With Signing Day now behind us and the Class of 2015 complete it is officially the start of a new season.  Offseason workouts are well underway with Coach Hocke implementing a new way of training and preparing the minds and bodies of the team.  The offensive players are feverishly studying the...

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...

Coach "Rock" Doing SERIOUS Work! Over the last two weeks there has been a lot of praise flying around the Bulldogs program.  Everyone has been talking about how great of a hire Jeremy Pruitt is, how much the secondary has improved, the emergence of Nick Chubb, the play of the offensive line and the huge improvement Hutson Mason...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - DL Camp Update #1 – James DeLoach#2 – Sterling Bailey#3 – Toby Johnson#4 – Ray Drew#5 – Josh Dawson #1 – Mike Thornton#2 – Chris Mayes#3 – John Atkins#4 – Lamont Galliard Update Every day in practice the nine players...

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

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

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

A Look into 2014 - PROJECTED Depth Chart QB Name

ImYourHuckleberry - 10 POSITIVES to Take from 2013 Season to Date #1 – The Bulldog Nation – The UGA fans have stepped up to the plate in a big way this season unlike I have ever seen.  Following a loss to Clemson the environment in Sanford Stadium against South Carolina was incredible.  Just when I thought it could not get any louder the...

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

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...

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

INTERESTING View - UGA Depth Chart Broken Down INCLUDING Recruits! Below is a detailed look at the Bulldogs roster broken down my class with the last column being current commits to UGA.  It was something I have been asked about on several occasions.  It is interesting to see how the roster is broken down.  You can certainly see that the areas of biggest need in...

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

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...

Grantham STRUGGLING to Stop the RUN A disturbing trend at UGA over the last season plus the first two games of this season is Georgia's inability stop the opponents run game.  At the end of last season in the SEC Championship the Bulldogs defense was throttled by the Alabama running game which is understandable given that Alabama...

Do Dawgs Have ANY DEPTH at CB? We heard a lot this off-season about the coaches being very excited because of the amount of depth that they would have on defense this season.  So far we are seeing that ring true on the defensive line where Garrison Smith, Sterling Bailey, Ray Drew, Toby Johnson, Josh Dawson, Johnathan Taylor...

HUGE Defensive Improvement v. Gamecocks? Watching the game from the stands at Clemson I left the game feeling good about the Dawgs young defense.  Amarlo Herrera and Ramik Wilson did a very nice job at inside linebacker for their first time playing together.  I think that Ray Drew and Sterling Bailey both had breakout games and are...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - Clemson Offensive Line v. UGA Front 7 In college football the battle at the line of scrimmage often goes a long way to determining who wins the game.  That importance is even magnified early in the season when an offense is trying to get into a rhythm.  With that said, lets take a look at the matchup between the Clemson offensive...

A RELENTLESS Pass Rush in 2013! Last season the Bulldogs got after the QB at a very effective rate.  Their numbers were amongst the top in the country in terms of sacks but the pressure was not always consistent and relentless. That is the goal of Todd Grantham's defense in 2013 to help protect an inexperienced secondary...

Noseguard Depth Chart Written in PENCIL Another great battle in fall practice will unfold at one of the most important positions on Todd Grantham's defense - noseguard.  After spring practice the depth chart has Mike Thornton as 1st team NG and Chris Mayes as his backup.  Not listed on that depth chart is the biggest wildcard for the...

All About ROTATION on Defensive Line One of the things that I cannot wait to see this fall is our defensive line.  It is not because we lost Kwame Geathers, John Jenkins and Abry Jones – It is because we have a “real” defensive line coach now.  I don't mean this to totally dismiss Rodney Garner who did some good things while at UGA,...

Ray Drew Flashes DOMINANCE Thus far during spring practice you have heard a lot about Sterling Bailey and Mike Thornton and how they were really making a lot of progress.  One name that had been very quiet was Ray Drew.  In the Bulldog nation there has been a growing contingent of people worried about whether or not Drew...

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...

IDEAL Post-Spring Depth Chart - Defense! Heading into spring practice there are a lot of questions on the defensive side of the ball.  The Bulldogs lost a ton of talent on that side of the ball, a great deal of that talent will be playing on Sunday's next year.  Therefore, there are a lot of available positions up for grabs this spring....

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #16 - John Atkins - DE - 6'4 305 In HS, Atkins was a late bloomer.  His body continued to develop and his natural strength began to shine through making him one of the highest recruited players at the end of his senior season.  He has a very powerful base and understands how to play with leverage which led to a debate among...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #17 - Sterling Bailey - DE - 6'3 295 Bailey was recruited to play OLB out of HS however once he got involved in a college weight/nutrition program it became clear that he was going to continue to grow and move to defensive end.  As a true freshmen he redshirted because of shoulder surgery and during his redshirt freshmen season he...

Grantham NEEDS to Use Depth! In the NFL it is not too odd to see star defensive lineman or linebackers play every snap of the game on defense.  In his first two years at UGA, Grantham has brought that philosophy with him from the NFL to the collegiate level.  After the injury to Abry Jones, Garrison Smith and John Jenkins...

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

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

ImYourHuckleberry - What We are MISSING In watching this weekends game against Alabama it became apparent what the Dawgs are missing on the current roster.  The need is two fold - (1) Quality depth in the Front 3 and (2) Size at Middle Linebacker.  It is something the Bulldogs can address with the 2013 Recruting Class if they finish...

Dawgs DON’T Have the Athletes Against the Gamecocks one thing was made clear - South Carolina has more dynamic athletes than Georgia.  The best example of this is along the defensive line where the Gamecocks have Devin Taylor (6'8 267), Jadeveon Clowney (6'6 265),  Byron Jerideau (6'1 316), Kelcy Quarles (6'4 286), and JT...

Jordan Jenkins Already Having IMPACT on UGA In spring practice UGA is experimenting with various position moves especially from outside linebacker moving to defensive end.  Ray Drew is approximately 275 pounds and is making the transition to a full-time defensive end.  Sterling Bailey is around 270 pounds and is likely to see most of his...

ImYourHuckleberry - IMPORTANT Spring Position Battles #2 & #3 Tailback I feel confident heading into the spring practice that a 100% healthy Isaiah Crowell is the will be #1 on the depth chart.  The question is who will emerge to contribute as well.  You have experienced seniors in Carlton Thomas and Richard Samuel...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting State of the Union Since the State of the Union is tonight I figured I would give a “Recruiting State of the Union”. It is only 9 days before Signing Day so we need to take stock of where we are at this point in the process. Our class is currently ranked #18 by Scout.com – #19 by Rivals.com – #5 by ESPN. That is a...

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

Why UGA Will Have the #1 Defense in the Nation in 2012 With the announcement today that Bacarri Rambo will be returning to UGA for his senior season, and rumors that Cornelius Washington, Shawn Williams, and Branden Smith will follow suit – the UGA defense has everything it needs to be the best defense in the country in 2012. The main reason why is...

ImYourHuckleberry - Jordan Jenkins Prediction Jordan Jenkins is set to make his decision Monday evening between 7-8 PM on Fox Sports. Here is my take on his recruitment:Jordan Jenkins is a very difficult prospect to predict. He weighs in at 6’3 246 pounds which is ideal for the outside linebacker position in the 3-4 or a speed...

ImYourHuckleberry - Daily Recruiting Update - 1/5/12 Tonight at 7:30 on ESPN the Under Armour All-American game will showcase some of the most talented high school football players in the country.
