Back to the Future in the SEC East in 2015? The SEC East looks like a division in the midst of a swing in power as spring practice opens across the country.In the nineties and early 2000's the SEC East was absolutely dominated by Florida and Tennessee and the rest of the East couldn't come close to keeping up.  It was until 2002 when...

#59 - Jordan Jenkins - Review & Looking Forward Jenkins was the most underrated and under-appreciated player by the fan base and pundits in general in 2014.  Jordan was the Bulldogs best player and nobody else was even close.  However, it seems that he has been overshadowed by the flashier Leonard Floyd and now Lorenzo Carter.  Each...

#38 - Ryne Rankin - Review & Looking Forward In his sophomore season Ryne Rankin largely played a role on special teams.  Rankin was primarily used on the kickoff coverage team where he had some bright moments.  He is a guy with speed that plays with complete fearlessness and is never afraid to stick his nose in there.  On the ILB depth...

#13 - Jonathan Ledbetter - Review & Looking Forward Ledbetter has already arrived on campus as an early enrollee and has been told he will wear #13 during his Bulldog career.  During his senior season at Tucker HS Ledbetter played all over the field but primarily at defensive end and tight end.  Regardless of position Ledbetter was a man amongst...

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

#8 – Shaun McGee – Review & Looking Forward During his redshirt freshmen season McGee saw the field for the first time in a special teams role.  McGee was used to cover kickoffs and occasionally on the punt coverage team as well.  If you have seen McGee in person the first thing that jumps out to you is just how physically put together 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...

Pruitt Elevating MORE Than Just UGA Defense Jeremy Pruitt hasn't even been in Athens for a year and yet he is bringing major changes to the Bulldog football program.  First and foremost, the Bulldogs have played some of their best defensive games since the Van Gorder era.  The Auburn game this past weekend and what the Dawgs defense was...

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...

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

How Will the Gators Respond? This week is a very interesting week for the Florida Gators football program.  Since the debacle at home against Missouri the noise around the program, especially head coach Will Muschamp has been very loud.  There was a significant portion of the fan base that wanted him fired and an interim...

Coach "Rock" Doing SERIOUS Work!

ImYourHuckleberry – The Battle for a Prototypical Left Tackle In the Class of 2007 the Georgia Bulldogs signed a 6'5 280 4-Star offensive tackle from Anson, North Carolina named Trinton Sturdivant.  As a true freshmen, Sturdivant arrived on campus and to the surprise of many became a 1st Team Freshmen All-American.  Sturdivant protected Matthew Stafford's...

Tennessee Prediction Gameday is almost here and the Bulldogs and Volunteers are both looking to get their first wins in the SEC of the season in what is a pivotal matchup for both teams.  Tennessee is an extremely young team that has showed flashes of brilliance and also some not so bright moments. The Bulldogs have...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - Freshmen Dawgs IMPRESS in Secondary From the opening whistle it was clear that the Bulldogs were far superior to Troy.  As a matter of fact you could see it in the pregame warmups that UGA just had a different type of athlete.  While these games aren't the most exciting because they are over by halftime for the team they are...

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...

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...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting Update As I mentioned over the weekend we have not entered the recruiting "Dead Period".  While it is a dead period it is also time for one of the biggest events in all of recruiting - The Opening.  Some of the best talent in the country will be on display on ESPNU for you to see with your own eyes....

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting Update Just a few thoughts as the "Dead Period" begins today: Micah Abernathy and Darius Slayton are two of the most important prospects left on UGA's Recruiting Board in my opinion.  As a matter of fact I would go as to say they are both among the Top 5 most important prospects left on...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Many of UGA's top tarets were at Auburn for their biggest recruiting weekend of the summer.  Here are some thoughts/rumors involving those prospects that went to "Big Cat Weekend":Jonathan Ledbetter (DT) was there and it appears that he came away impressed with what the...

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...

ImYourHucklebery - Arrest Means You are DONE! With the arrests of John Taylor, James DeLoach, Tray Matthews and Uriah Lemay for what allegedly appears to be check fraud if proved true all of these players have lost the privilege to wear the "G" in my mind.  If proved to be true stealing is stealing and fraud is even worse in my...

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 - This Teams Two BIGGEST Question Marks?!?! #2 - Fundamentals - This team has a ton of athletic talent.  Sometimes it appears that players rely on their god-given abilities to get by and don't put enough work into building their fundamentals and having a solid base upon which to build upon.  A lot of the time you see that...

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

ImYourHuckleberry – An INSIDE Look at Pruitt’s BRILLIANT and Simple Defense The last several seasons under Todd Grantham the Bulldogs defense, even with a veteran group in 2012, often looked confused and unable to line up.  Often as fans we would be sitting up in the stands looking down and seeing fifteen players out on the field and then four running off before the snap...

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

Who Will Coach Pruitt and UGA Hire Next? In my opinion UGA and Coach Pruitt made a very good hire with Kevin Sherrer.  In Sherrer the Bulldogs are getting another coach from the Alabama coaching tree that has been so successful since Saban arrived and they are getting someone who is very familiar with Coach Pruitt.  They have coached...

Pruitt's Philosophy INCREDIBLY Simple & Impressive “It is a totally different defense as far as no more reading, it's just like see it and go.” - Mario Edwards - DEThis weekend I spent some time going back and reading articles where the Florida State players and staff discussed Jeremy Pruitt's scheme.  I wanted to...

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...

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...

UGA's 2014 Schedule Getting EASIER?

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...

HUGE Opportunity for Hutson Mason It was painful to watch Aaron Murray having to be carried off the field at Sanford Stadium instead of walking off under his own power his team just having finished off a blowout victory in his final home game.  However, this is a game that should cememt Murray's legacy and make him one of the...

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...

Dawgs PUMMEL Wildcats Saturday Night! This has been one of the most stressful seasons for UGA fans that I have ever seen.  The Clemson, South Carolina, LSU, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Florida and Auburn games were all nail biters until the very end.  Rarely this season has there been a game where UGA dominates from the opening snap for...

Mitchell MISSED More Than You Know Georgia's season got off to an ominous start this season when Todd Gurley exploded for a 75-yard TD in the first quarter against Clemson and his teammate Malcolm Mitchell jumped to celebrate with Gurley and when he landed his ACL popped.  When those kinds of things happen part of me tends to...

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...

Is the Alabama Dynasty BAD for College Football? Make no mistake about it Nick Saban has created a dynasty in Tuscaloosa.  Alabama has won the BCS Championship in the 2009, 2011 and 2012 seasons.  In 2009 the Tide went 13-0, in 2011 the tide were 12-1 and in 2012 the Tide were 12-1.  This year it appears inevitable that they will be 13-0 again...

ImYourHuckleberry - BIG TIME Recruiting Update!!!

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

The FUTURE With Hutson Mason For the first time in over two years Hutson Mason had a chance to take some snaps Between the Hedges in a real game.  In mop up duty against Appalachian State, Mason was 11-16 for 160 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT.  Overall, he looked ready and showed very few signs of rust given how long it had been...

LEADER Emerging in the Secondary Finally back home from a wonderful vacation in Saint Simons and man does it feel good to be a Dawg!  For the first time since 1987, 1988 and 1989 the Bulldogs have won three in a row against the Gators and have finally turned the tide of the series.  I know some are disappointed in the 2nd Half...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Florida PREDICTION This is a swing game for both teams seasons.  Sure, both teams had much higher expectations then coming into this game both at 4-3 and both unranked but each team still has the opportunity to get to 10 wins if they win out the rest of the season and win their bowl game.  It also has implications...

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...

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 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...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update! It has been very quiet on the UGA recruiting front since the monster game v. LSU.  A lot of this is the result of the UGA class having so few numbers left available and many of the targets left on their board at least six weeks or more away from making a decision.  Behind the scenes the Bulldogs...

ImYourHuckleberry - 2014 RECRUITING Class a GAMECHANGER for Dawgs Defense? The Bulldogs have a lot of young talent on defense this year and a lot of freshmen that are playing immediately.  There are areas of strength on this defense and there are certainly areas of weakness.  The question is whether or not UGA is recruiting correctly in the Class of 2014 to help improve...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Mizzou - PREDICTION What a difficult game to predict.  If UGA was a healthy football team coming into this game I would have no problem picking the Bulldogs and picking them by a significant amount.  But that is not the case heading into this game against the Tigers.  The Tigers are a solid 5-0 and ranked #5 in the...

The PRESSURE is NOT on UGA This Weekend When you take a look at the Georgia ranking à #7, record à 4 – 1, playing at home and the expectation of reaching an SEC Championship you would assume that all of the pressure is on the Bulldogs to win this game.  Certainly, you would be correct, if UGA wants to play in the SEC Championship with...

Grantham good or bad all of a sudden? Did he forget how to coach? Or is it the youth on the Bulldogs defense this year. I remember it was not too long ago we were all so afraid a pro team was going to steal him away because his defenses were so good. Or how about when we were all petrified that rumors of his leaving was going to ruin...

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...

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

Who STARTS at Free Safety for UGA v. Tennessee The UGA coaching staff has a very interesting decision in front of them this weekend when the Bulldogs head to Knoxville to face the Volunteers.  Unless you were living under a rock yesterday you heard that Tray Matthews was not at practice after having “tweaked” his hamstring in practice on...

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

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

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

Dawgs New MONSTER in the MIDDLE! In UGA's season opener against Clemson the Bulldogs defense allowed 197 yards rushing.  In Week 2 against the Gamecocks the Bulldogs allowed 226 yards rushing.  The Bulldog Nation was getting very frustrated with Todd Grantham's inability to stop the run and many were saying that his scheme...

NEW Pregame TRADITION in Athens? I have to give props to whoever in the UGA Athletic Department and/or the creative team who came up with the idea and concept for the “Awaken the Nation” video last week.  All across the internet on many different websites, including sites for other SEC schools people are talking about this video...

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

ImYourHuckleberry – 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...

ImYourHuckleberry - MONSTER Recruiting Update! Numbers are beginning to get very tight in the Class of 2014 for the Bulldogs and it will be interesting to see how this plays out over the next four to five months as UGA attempts to close out the class with a bang.  The Bulldogs class currently stands at 17 players that include:  1 QB, 2 RB, 2...

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%...

ImYourHuckleberry – 5 KEY Players for LSU You have all heard the main story line leading up to this game with Zach Mettenberger returning to Athens.  I am sure you are all very familiar with a few other names from the LSU team like Jeremy Hill, Odell Beckham, Anthony Johnson and Jalen Mills.  However, there are still a few other players...

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...

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...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. North Texas PREDICTION It has been a nice little breather for the fan base and the coaching staff as well as the players after a brutal anxiety ridden start to the season.  The off week could not have come at a better time for the Bulldogs with guys like Todd Gurley, Keith Marshall, Kenarious Gates and several other...

The FUTURE of Left Tackle at UGA Over the last six seasons I would argue the biggest hole on the UGA football team has been the lack of a pure left tackle to protect the quarterbacks blind side.  In my opinion the last time UGA had that player was in 2007 when true freshmen Trinton Sturdivant wowed everyone and was truly a...

Way to Early RAEKWON McMILLAN Signing Day PREDICTION Raekwon McMillan - 6'2 245 - ILB - McMillan has his Top 5 but in reality I believe it is a two team race so I won't bother discussing the rest.  For McMillan it will come down to Ohio State and Clemson.  I don't really quite understand why he is even visiting UGA this weekend for...

ImYourHuckleberry - SEC Week 3 Power Rankings #1 - Alabama - Alabama has holes on defense in the secondary and struggles to get pressure on the QB but offensively they are a juggernaut.  The offensive line took great strides between the Virginia Tech game and the A& game.#2 - LSU - The LSU defense...

Georgia Commit Potential SUPERSTAR! The Bulldogs have a lot of very talented players committed in the Class of 2014.  Sony Michel, Jacob Park, Dontavius Russell and Lamont Galliard are just a few of the highly touted players in the class but none have been more impressive then Nick Chubb who is starting to get some serious national...

ImYourHuckleberry - Week 3 PREDICTIONS Tennessee @ #2 Oregon – The Vols make the roadtrip this weekend out to Eugene to face the Oregon Ducks.  This is a huge test for Butch Jones as a head coach and the Tennessee defense going up against one of the most high powered offenses in the country.  Tennessee will have some...

An IMPOSSIBLE Decision! I can't wait for the game this weekend between Alabama and Texas A&M. It is probably the most excited I have been to watch a regular season college football game ever that does not involve Georgia. Being a UGA fan and a fan of college football in general I am sure that everyone across the SEC...

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...

Who Will REDSHIRT for UGA? This is the game where we will likely find out once and for all who will be redshirting for the Bulldogs this season.  Usually, you get a reasonable idea in the 1st or 2nd game of the season when you play a cupcake FCS level team and you see everyone get a chance to play....

ImYourHuckleberry – HUGE SEC Recruiting Battles! There are a lot of schools throughout the SEC That already have an impressive list of players committed to their schools for the Class of 2014.  Some classes appear to be really close to full including Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky and Tennessee while other schools like Texas A&M, LSU and Florida...

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...

SEC Power Rankings #1 – Alabama – The two-time defending National Champions showed they still have some work to do in their only game of the season thus far against Virginia Tech but until they are knocked off they won't move from this rank regardless of how good anyone else looks.  In the words of...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. South Carolina PREDICTION This is cupcake week in the SEC this week with only two premiere games.  UGA v. South Carolina is certainly the marquee matchup of the week in the SEC but Miami v. Florida will also be a big battle.  In the end I expect the Gators defense to be too much for Miami's offense but it will be really...

Behind ENEMY Lines - UGA v. South Carolina Edition One of my good friends Rob is a Gamecocks insider and follows South Carolina athletics closer then just about anyone I know.  Last year I asked him some questions about the UGA v. South Carolina matchup and the article received a...

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...

Can Quayvon HELP Contain Jadeveon? Much was made of Clowney's “struggles” against North Carolina in the Gamecocks season opener.  He finished the game with only three tackles and zero sacks and for a good portion of the game he was sucking wind and it looked like he wasn't giving 100% effort.  Those in the national media...

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...

BEST Offense UGA Will Face ALL Season? I went back last night and watched the UGA v. Clemson game as difficult as it was to watch and I was left truly blown away by just how good the Clemson offense was despite playing behind what I would call an average offensive line.  Tahj Boyd is the best QB the Bulldogs will face all season...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Clemson PREDICTION Memorial Stadium is going to be rocking on Saturday night.  The crowd will go crazy as the players rub the rock and come roaring down the field while the band plays Tiger Rag.  It truly is one of the unique sites in college football and it will undoubtedly have the Clemson faithful going crazy...

EXCITING News It is very exciting for the DawgBark team to announce that we have started a new venture called “FANternity”.  You will notice that our URL has switched from www.dawgbark.net to

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...

Oh You SILLY Clemson Fans I took a quick visit over to TigerNet.com and came away laughing at some of the comments from their fans that I thought I would share with the DawgBark:“Watching the UGA/BAMA game makes me think we will not see the passing game as it was in years past. I think our...

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...

Grantham Getting CREATIVE with Leonard Floyd As everyone knows Josh Harvey-Clemmons has been suspended for the Clemson game.  Not only does that effect UGA's base defense when Harvey-Clemmons lines up at strong safety but it may impact the Dawgs even more when they are in the nickel and he moves down to play the star position.  Well in...

Can Tray Matthews Be EFFECTIVE v. Clemson? Chip Towers and the AJC are at it again.  As usual, Chip likes to beat down the Bulldogs as the season draws near.  Typically he has a lot of fodder for his columns but with the season drawing near and no UGA players getting in trouble off the field he has to find another way to beat down the...

ImYourHuckleberry - 5 Keys for a Georgia VICTORY! #1 - Weather the Storm - This Clemson crowd is going to be absolutely insane.  For those of you who were at the UGA v. South Carolina game last year you saw what an impact an electric environment can have on a college football game.  There is no doubt Clemson is going to come out...

Is Lorenzo Carter OVERHYPED? On Saturday I am sure a great number of people watched the Norcross v. Booker T. Washington game. If you watched you saw just how ridiculously good Booker T. Washington is.  There is a reason they are viewed by many to be the best HS football team in the nation.  But now onto the man of the hour...

This is for the LADIES (and the men who keep them HAPPY) Hello all you Lady Dawgs out there!
