Winning...But at What Cost??? What has college athletics become?  There is very little purity left.  One thing has been a fact for the last 10-15 years, it is no longer amateur athletics.  There is so much money and power at stake that winning at all costs seems to be the mentality whether it be swimming, softball yet alone...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recap of Week 1 of Spring Practice Coach Shotty a Hit - In Brian Schottenheimer's 1st week on the practice field with the team it is clear that the players have taken to him.  When players have been allowed to speak publicly there is nothing but positives about Coach Shotty and it feels very similar to the feel...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - Michigan State a Good Matchup for Dawgs With regards to matchups for the Bulldogs this matchup against Michigan State is about as good as you could hope for.  The two teams play an incredibly similar style of basketball and play within a strict system.  Also, both teams are "blue collar" basketball teams lacking a superstar capable of...

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...

#54 - Brandon Kublanow - Review & Looking Forward After limited playing time as a true freshmen Kublanow stepped up in a big way in 2014.  Kublanow has the mental makeup and brute strength to be a dominant run blocker which he showed in stretches last season.  His struggles mostly came in pass protection but a lot of that was the result of...

#53 - Lamont Galliard - Review & Looking Forward 2014 was a redshirt year for the highly touted four star recruit from North Carolina.  When Lamont arrived in Athens it was pretty quickly decided that he would need a redshirt season because he needed to reshape his body and replace bad weight with good weight.  He also needed to elevate his...

#35 - Aaron Davis - Review & Looking Forward Davis was one of the most pleasant surprises of the 2014 season.  Nothing was expected from the walk-on but he emerged in spring practice under Jeremy Pruitt and earned overachieved all season long in a starting role.  Davis is a glue guy.  He is an incredibly intelligent football player that not...

#31 Shattle Fenteng - Review & Looking Forward When Fenteng signed with the Bulldogs he was expected to come in and make an instant impact.  After some promising signs early his season was derailed by a shoulder injury that led to a medical redshirt.  From the limited information out there it appears his recovery is progressing well and he...

#12 – Brice Ramsey – Review & Looking Forward Brice Ramsey had a very interesting redshirt freshmen season.  He entered the season tied with Faton Bauta at #2 on the depth chart but quickly earned the backup QB job all to himself.  At one point there was serious consideration given to starting Ramsey as Hutson Mason was struggling.  However,...

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

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

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...

Pruitt Going for MORE SIZE Up Front in 2015? There is no doubt that the UGA defense made tremendous strides on defense between 2013 and 2014. The UGA pass defense improved tremendously as did the Dawgs ability to force turnovers and prevent big plays. However, the one clear weakness of this defense in 2014 was the ability to stop the power...

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...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - MONSTER Recruiting Update When you are an SEC Program and you do not have any home games for a six weekend period and you have a Top 10 conference rival coming into town it is bound to be a monster recruiting weekend.  That is the case for the Bulldogs this weekend as the Auburn Tigers come into town and the Bulldogs are...

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 - Problems @ ILB? Recruiting Update The Dawgs have exceptional athletes and potential at the OLB position this season and could potentially have an outstanding group return in 2015 if Leonard Floyd and Jordan Jenkins were to decide to return to Athens.  The inside linebacker position is much more of a question mark with Ramik...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting Update/Defensive Line Talent Deficiency I would argue that the Class of 2015 is the most important recruiting class for the Bulldogs since Mark Richt has arrived in Athens.  While sitting in the stands in Jacksonville, Florida it became very clear that the Bulldogs have a severe talent deficiency at multiple positions – especially on...

NCAA is DISCOURAGING Honesy & Integrity (An Important Read) The game of college football is no longer an amateur sport, it is a business.  Don't believe me?  Just look at some of the numbers below:• ESPN reached a deal with the NCAA on November 20, 2012 to broadcast the new “College Football Playoff for 12 Years – $5.64 billion...

Florida set to attack our....Weakness? So...Georgia's passing yards this year seem a little low? Everyone's not on the "Confident in Mason" bandwagon just yet? Florida expecting to attack UGA's so-called "weak" passing game as their best shot at winning this year's WLOCP?....Do any of these people actually look at stats??? Mike...

&*%$ the NCAA It is amazing what happens when you play ball with the NCAA.  UGA and Gurley admit (are 100% honest) that something was done wrong.  The NCAA President calls UGA's handling of the Gurley situation commendable and then they dole out the maximum penalty of 4 games. Then you have Florida...

Tough Test Facing Mason & UGA Receivers There is a lot working in the Bulldogs favor this weekend as they travel down to Jacksonville. The Gators are a shell of their typical selves and on and UGA appears to just be starting to hit their stride. That is not to say this won't be a big test for the Bulldogs because the Gators probably...

NCAA Ineptitude and Inconsistency on Full Display There are some things that we are not meant to understand.  As a small example, men aren't supposed to understand women.  But you would think that people should be able to understand the NCAA Rulebook.  However, the NCAA Rulebook is about as outdated and confusing as the IRS Tax Code.  Another...

ImYourHuckleberry - Weekend UPSET Special & More This weekend doesn't have the high profile Top 10 SEC matchup that we have been spoiled with the last few weekends, nevertheless it is still an exciting slate of football:Arkansas v. UAB will get the weekend in the SEC started with the “midseason cupcake”.  UAB is not necessarily a cupcake...

How Florida can BEAT Georgia So you're telling me there's a chance. Yes, Florida can beat Georgia. The chances aren't great but bigger upsets have happened and there are several reasons the Gators can beat the UGA but a lot will have to come together to make that happen.The first reason is Vernon Hargreaves....

ImYourHuckleberry - Top 10 SEC Recruiting Battles #1 - Martez Ivey – 6'6 275 – OT – Auburn v. FloridaIvey is the best offensive tackle in the country in the Class of 2015.  The freakishly athletic 6'6 275 offensive tackle has long been thought as a Florida lock but with the recent struggles of the Gators on the field the...

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 Weekend for the Dawgs Make no mistake about it, this was a huge recruiting weekend for the Bulldogs.  Yes, it was a road game, yes the Bulldogs did not receive any commits but I argue that it may be the biggest weekend for the Dawgs recruiting class since Dawg Night when both Jacob Eason and Ben Cleveland committed to...

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...

There is a QB Controversy at UGA After the performance of Hutson Mason against Tennessee I think it is fair to say UGA has a QB controversy.  Mason looked indecisive in the pocket, his poor arm strength stood out and he made poor...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. 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...

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 - 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 - 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 - Recruiting Update - Inside Linebacker #4 Position of Need - INSIDE LINEBACKERThe Dawgs will be losing their top two tacklers at the end of this season and two leaders on this defense in Amarlo Herrera and Ramik Wilson, the Dawgs two starting inside linebackers.  Behind Herrera and Smith the Dawgs depth chart...

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 - 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 - Huge Recruiting Update - The Safety Position Through two games this season the trends are starting emerge on this team with regards to personnel strengths and weaknesses.  There are areas where the Bulldogs have elite ability all the way to areas that will need huge improvement to come in the Class of 2015.  Over the next I will update Top...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - Dawgs v. Gamecocks Prediction ?This game has scared me more on an annual basis than any game on UGA's schedule the past 6 years.  The Gamecocks always play with a giant chip on each shoulder and when the game is in Columbia there is always...

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...

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 - Recruiting Update is a Numbers Game The decisions are starting to get really tough for the Bulldogs coaching staff in the Class of 2015.  With 21 players already committed and a part of the class and the momentum on the recruiting trail from the Dawgs domination of the Clemson Tigers have some very talented players strongly...

Is It A Talent Issue at South Carolina? One of the questions that has been raised since the disaster on Thursday night against Texas A&M is whether it came down to bad scheme/gameplan or if the Gamecocks were simply talent deficient in the game.  The answer to that question is important because if it was simply an issue of...

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 - UGA Receivers MUST Get Healthy Just like any of you watching the game in Sanford Stadium or at home on TV I was blown away by the play of the running backs this weekend.  Gurley, Michel and Chubb all had impressive runs and you could tell that Marshall was healthy running down the field to cover kickoffs even though he didn't...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Clemson Prediction! If the Gamecocks v. Aggies game proved anything at all last night it proved that all we have been doing this off-season is speculating and who knows what is truly going to happen when these UGA and Clemson take the field on Saturday night.  Everyone and I mean everyone was picking the Gamecocks...

ImYourHuckleberry - Dawgs Building INCREDIBLE Class of Receivers The Class of 2015 for the Bulldogs is shaping up to be a very special class.  With the 21 commitments the Bulldogs already have on the board the class is ranked in the Top 3 in the Nation with the potential to get even better before the season ends.  While the overall haul of the class is very...

Lessons Pruitt Will Bring from FSU for Clemson Last season the Seminoles made the trip to Memorial Stadium in Clemson when the Tigers were 6-0 and ranked No. 3 in the country and all they did was utterly destroy the Tigers and embarass them on their home field.  The Jeremy Pruitt led defense held the Tigers offense to the...

Vic Beasley to Get Clowney Treatment? When UGA's offense takes the field for the first time in 2014 all eyes are going to be on #3.  Everyone in the red and black will be excited to see what Gurley is going to do when he touches the ball and everyone in purple and gold will be looking to see what manchild Vic Beasley will do on his...

ImYourHuckleberry - EXPECTATIONS for Pruitt and The Geogia Defense Yesterday I was asked the question "What are your expectations for Georgia's defense the first two games against Clemson and South Carolina?"  My first instinct was to say I want them too look like the FSU defense of last season because of the amount of talent the Dawgs have in the front seven...

UGA & LSU Battling over 4-Star Athlete The battle for Donte Jackson's signature appears to only be heating up between the Dawgs and Bayou Bengals.  Georgia was the first to offer Jackson and that has remained a large factor in his recruitment as has the hiring of Jeremy Pruitt at defensive coordinator and the pedigree that comes with...

ImYourHuckleberry - 5 Keys for Defense in Fall Camp #1 – Safety – Last season the play at the safety position for the Bulldogs was absolutely horrific most of the season.  There is no other way to say it and if you have any doubts just go back and watch the way the Auburn game ended with two of our safeties running into each other...

ImYourHuckleberry – 5 Keys for Offense in Fall Camp #1 – The Blind Side - Coach Bobo and Coach Friend need to decide early in fall practice who is going to be protecting Hutson Mason's blind side.  Mason is a QB who is going to make his living from the pocket and while does have good pocket presence if the LT can't hold up Mason...

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...

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 - Film Study - Chuma Edoga - 6'4 280 - OT Edoga is not your prototypical 6'6 310 pound "franchise" left tackle.  However, when you watch his film the first thing that jumps out at you is that he looks like an elite left tackle prospect.  While only 6'4 it has been reported that he has a 6'9 wingpan which is some serious arm length and...

ImYourHuckleberry - Film Study - Dallas Warmack - 6'2 305 - C/OG The younger brother of one of the most dominant SEC lineman in recent history is bound to be a highly recruited prospect especially when he has nearly identical measurables.  Dallas Warmack measures in a 6'2 305 and projects to be a high level SEC offensive guard or center on the collegiate...

SEC Top 20 Impact Freshmen - #8 Lorenzo Carter - UGA After spring practice defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt made it clear that there is one thing he wants more than anything else on his defense - SPEED!  With Lorenzo Carter you get a ton of speed in a 6'6 238 pound frame.  By no means am I saying that Carter is Jadeveon Clowney (or going to be...

SEC Post-Spring Power Rankings - #2 Georgia Bulldogs Last season the Bulldogs had one of the worst passing defenses in school history and horrible stretch of injuries on the offense that saw the Aaron Murray, Todd Gurley, Keith Marshall, Malcolm Mitchell, Chris Conley, Michael Bennett, Justin Scott-Wesley and Jay Rome all miss a significant amount...

SEC Post-Spring Power Rankings - #5 - Auburn Tigers This is where the teams start to seperate themselves in the SEC in my opinion.  The Top 5 teams all have a chance to win the SEC in my opinion.  At #5 I have defending SEC Champions - Auburn.  It all starts for Auburn on the offensive side of the ball with Nick Marshall who is an incredibly...

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...

SEC Top 20 Impact Freshmen - #13 - Josh Malone - WR - Tennessee Josh Malone was one of the biggest gets for any SEC team this season.  As a matter of fact there were many SEC teams battling for Malone and at the end it came down to Tennessee and UGA and Malone chose to stay in state and play for the Vols.  He is exactly the type of commitment that the Vols...

SEC Top 20 Impact Freshmen - #14 - Nick Chubb - RB - Georgia The legend of Nick Chubb is only growing larger and larger as his impending arrival in Athens, GA is growing closer and closer.  As Chubb continues to grind things out in the weight room he is also showing out for the Cedartown HS track team.  Over the weekend Chubb through the shotput 55 feet 8...

SEC Top 20 Impact Freshmen - #15 - Will Grier - QB - Florida Before the season is over Will Grier could end up being one of the Top 5 most impactful freshmen in the SEC if he ends up winning the QB battle with Jeff Driskel.  Grier is an incredibly talented young QB.  In HS at Davidson Day he put up incredible numbers through is entire career, once even...

SEC Top 20 Impact Freshmen #16 - Matt Elam - DT - Kentucky Matt Elam was an absolutely monstrous get for the Wildcats in the 2014 recruiting class.  It was obviously monstrous in terms of size because Elam is one of the biggest human beings I have ever seen in my life not only for a HS student but just for a man in general.  It is also a huge get because...

SEC Top 20 Impact Freshmen - #17 - Malkom Parrish - DB - Georgia The Bulldogs head into 2014 with a lot of questions on defense but no questions are any bigger than who will line up in the secondary and where they will line up.  There is talent already on campus with the likes of Damian Swann, Corey Moore, Tray Matthews, Shaq Wiggins, Sheldon Dawson, Brendan...

SEC Top 20 Impact Freshmen - #18 – Drew Barker – QB – Kentucky #18 - Drew Barker - QB - Kentucky - When you think of Kentucky quarterbacks you think of the best Kentucky QB's of all time you think of Andre Woodson, Jared Lorenzen and Tim Couch.  Tim Couch was far and away the best college quarterback of those three and I think that Drew...

SEC Top 20 Impact Freshmen - #19 - Cameron Sims - WR – Alabama The Tide have some incredibly talented WR's already on the roster headlined by Amari Cooper who very well may be the most talented WR in the country.  Then you can't forget about Chris Black and Christion Jones who despite their small stature are lightening in a bottle and can go the distance any...

SEC Top 20 Impact Freshmen 2014 - #20 Jeb Blazevich - UGA - TE #20 - Jeb Blazevich - TE - UGAThe Bulldogs historically love to throw the ball to the TE and in 2014 they have quite a few question marks with the loss of Arthur Lynch to the NFL.  Jay Rome is next in line but he has historically had trouble staying healthy and the other...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA O-Line Recruiting - Panic? No. Concern? Yes. Each and every year Georgia sets their sights high in recruiting and offers many of the top prospects around the Southeast.  Often, they are mentioned as one of the top teams early in the recruiting process but over the course of the recruiting season they seem to fall behind and eventually miss...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE 2015 Recruiting Update! I've been doing a lot of research over the last month on the Class of 2015.  Taking into account the UGA depth chart, class breakdown and those prospects that UGA is recruiting a clear picture is beginning to shape up of what the Bulldogs are attempting to achieve.  Below I will let you in on...

Pruitt Making INTENSE First Impression If you bleed Red & Black the reports coming out of the first two spring practices regarding Jeremy Pruitt.  There are several things that have caught my eye through two practices:(1) Tempo – The Bulldogs are practicing at a very high tempo.  There is not much standing...

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...

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 - 4 Goals for the DEFENSE This Spring! 4 Days Until Spring Practice!!#4 – Change the Mindset – This defense needs a complete mental overhaul from the last year of the Todd Grantham era.  It was a defense that was hesitant and afraid and in the SEC that is not going to work.  This spring it is key for them to develop...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - 6 Most Athletically GIFTED Players at UGA 6 Days Until Spring Practice!!#6 - Shaq Wiggins - Watching Shaq Wiggins last season it blew me away to watch how athletic he is.  While he may not have great top end speed or a 40+ inch vertical he does have one incredible athletic skill -...

ImYourHuckleberry – Going BIG on the Offensive Line ~~As the Bulldogs head into spring practice there is only one person with a guaranteed starting spot on the offensive line – David Andrews.  He will be lining up at center and he will be the anchor for this unit that will be relied upon to provide leadership.  Outside of that, everything else is...

UGA Building SERIOUS Momentum in 2015 Recruiting Class Nowadays there is recruiting overload.  With Signing Day 2014 having just wrapped up things are already in full swing for 2015 recruiting.  The UGA staff was given a couple days off after Signing Day to recharge the batteries but are already hitting the road hard trying to lock down the borders...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - Lorenzo Carter NOT Just Your Ordinary Signing When Lorenzo Carter made the announcement live on ESPNU yesterday afternoon that he was going to stay in state and play for the Georgia Bulldogs it was an exhilarating moment for the Bulldog Nation.  Sure, everyone is excited because he is extremely gifted and because he is the top ranked player...

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 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...

#1 2015 OT to COMMIT on Signing Day Mitch Hyatt has gone public letting everyone know that he will be announcing his commitment on this Wednesday, Signing Day, at 7:00 P.M.  Hyatt is the #1 OT prospect in the State of Georgia and in the entire country according to some.  With him making a commitment so early in the process it...

UGA Looking to Add MISSING Pieces to Secondary with Class of 2014 This weekend things have gotten very interesting for the Bulldogs recruiting class.  It was a huge recruiting weekend on campus with players like Bryson Allen-Williams and Lorenzo Carter but there were also some very significant developments outside of those two.  Those developments mostly have...

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...

Did UGA Flip Bryson-Allen Williams this Weekend? Bryson Allen-Williams (BAW), the 6'1 225 pound linebacker from Cedar Grove HS, has quickly become one of the hottest topics as Signing Day draws near.  BAW has been a Gamecock commit since April 15, 2013 but after his incredibly performance in the US-Army All American game and a coaching change...

Dawgs Add to ANOTHER Piece to Secondary Last night the Georgia Bulldogs and Coach Jeremy Pruitt received good news when Dominick Sanders of Tucker HS committed on the spot after receiving an offer from the Bulldogs.  Sanders is a 5'11 190 pound defensive back that will most likely play CB in Athens but could potentially slide over to...

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....

Alabama Steals Top Prospect Out of Georgia Alabama added their 5th commitment to the Class of 2015 on Saturday when 6'5 262 pound defensive end Jonathan Ledbetter of Tucker HS in Tucker, GA committed to the Tide.  Ledbetter exploded onto the recruiting scene in 2013 when he transferred from a small private school to Georgia high school...

Tracy Rocker's Impact on UGA Defensive Line It is amazing how a few years can change your perspective on someone.  I have never doubted Tracy Rocker's coaching ability and ability to develop talent but when I watched the way his defensive line played at Auburn I respected their intensity and effort but I did not like the fact that on...

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...

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

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...

UGA’s Goal – To TRULY Run This State in Recruiting! It has been said for the longest time that if the Bulldogs could lock down the state of Georgia in recruiting that there is no excuses for this program to not be competing for National Championships every year.  Unfortunately for the Bulldogs too much of the top talent has been escaping the state...

Alvin Kamara Headed to Clemson? Former UGA recruit and Alabama tailback Alvin Kamara appears to be on his way to Clemson.  Last night Kamara had a visit with Clemson's running back coach Tony Elliott and it appears that everything that came out of that visit was positive.  The other schools competing for Kamara's services...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting Update Terry Godwin – 6'1 170 – CB/WR – I can't tell you how big of a deal it was for UGA to land Terry Godwin this early in the process.  Godwin is one of the most dynamic athletes in the State of Georgia for the Class of 2015 and is one of the “Big 3” in the state of Georgia for 2015 that is – Mitch...

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...

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...

Kirby Smart or Jeremy Pruitt? Yesterday was a very eventful day in the Bulldogs search to replace Todd Grantham.  It appears like many already assumed that Kirby Smart (Alabama DC) and Jeremy Pruitt (FSU DC) are the top two candidates for the job.  However, there is no indication that an offer has been made by UGA to either...

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

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

Grantham Leaving UGA for Louisville - WOW! ~In a very surprising turn of events Todd Grantham, who was not fired by UGA when many thought he would be has decided to leave the University of Georgia to be the defensive coordinator at Louisville.  In a move that you can either call shocking or you can call logical. Why shocking?  This...

Recruitment Opening Up for 5-STAR Recruit? The recruitment of 6'4 225 pound outside linebacker Christian Miller from Spring Valley HS in Columbia, SC has taken a very interesting turn.  When it was made public last night that Charlie Strong was able to lure Alabama defensive line coach Chris Rumph to Texas that changed the game in...

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 - #1 Key to UGA Offseason In my review of the season and the roster I see so much potential in the roster that UGA has put together in Athens.  There are players that are capable of elevating their game to another level on this roster and it is up to the S&C program and the coaches to develop them over these next 8 1/2...

UGA's 2014 Schedule Getting EASIER? UGA has another difficult start to the season in 2014 opening up with Clemson at home and then facing South Carolina in Columbia, but with the attrition that is taking place at Clemson that game is starting to look more and more favorable for the Bulldogs.  The list below is starters from Clemson...

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...

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 -...

ImYourHuckleberry - 2014 Offense - Who Starts? Who Sits? QB:         Hutson Mason – Status:  StrongMason has patiently waited his turn and Richt is loyal to veterans for the most part.  Brice Ramsey, Faton Bauta or Jacob Park would have to do something special in spring and fall practice in order to unseat...

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

Position Changes Everywhere! It looks like the Bulldogs are using Bowl Practice to do a lot of experimenting for next year and possibly to make changes before spring practice even begins.  The two most notable names that are reportedly experimenting at new positions are Tramel Terry and Brendan Langley.Tramel was...

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...

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...

Mason Brings Something DIFFERENT then Murray On a quiet evening in the sports world last night I took the time to fire up the DVR and rewatch the UGA v. Georgia Tech game because I wanted to re-watch Hutson Mason's game and be able to really focus in on what he brings to the table next season and what he needs to improve on.  Many have said...

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...

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...

Southeast LOADED with Offensive Lineman in 2015 Class The 2015 Recruiting Class is going to be huge for the future of the Georgia offensive line.  As we have seen this year UGA definitely has some talent on the offensive front but they still need more quality depth and need to find some top flight offensive tackles for the future.  In 2014 they have...

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 - UGA v. Auburn PREDICTION This weekend the #25 Georgia Bulldogs travel to the Plains to take on the #7 Auburn Tigers.  In a scheduling quirk this is the second season in a row that the Bulldogs will be making the trip to Auburn to face a Tiger team that is hungry to avenge a 38-0 thrashing by the Bulldogs on their home...

Ranking the SEC Head Coaches #1 – Nick Saban – Alabama Crimson TideIs there any question about this?  Nick Saban is far and away the best coach in all of college football at the moment and one of the greatest of all time.  When you combine that with being one of the best recruiters in the country he...

ImYourHuckleberry - BIG TIME Recruiting Update!!!

A Look Into 2015 - RECRUITING An early look into the 2015 Recruiting Class and some of the players UGA is taking a hard look at.  It is an interesting and talented group:

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...

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,...

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...

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...

CHANGE Must be Made with Targeting Penalty The targeting penalty in college football is full of flaws.  Some of the flaws are the most fundamental flaws and some are completely egregious.  In the UGA game vs. Vanderbilt you saw an example of the fundamental flaws and the egregious flaws that are part of this rule.  Let's take a quick...

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...

Grantham Fired Rumor?? In an interesting development I was just texted by a friend telling me that there are rumors running rampant on the pay sites, including 247Sports and Scout.com that Todd Grantham has been fired.  Apparently there has been no confirmation and/or denial from UGA.  You always wonder where these...

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...

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...

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 - PREDICTIONS for HUGE Weekend of SEC Games! Finally, college football is really heating up over these last couple weeks with a bunch of great matchups across the country and especially in the Southeast.  This Saturday is going to be one of those days where you just sit down in front of the TV and tell your wife to grab you a cold beer and...

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 –...

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...

LESS of a ROTATION at Right Tackle I was finally able to sit down and re-watch the Missouri game without getting so disgusted that I had to turn the TV off.  When I re-watched the game I found myself spending a majority of the time when UGA had the ball focusing on the right tackle position.  As has been the case for most of the...

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...

UGA Receiver FINALLY Getting HEALTHY! One of the big gets in UGA's 2013 recruiting class was when they were able to snag the 6'5 215 pound Jonathan Rumph as one of the last members of the class.  During his season spent at community college he was known for his big frame, strong hands and deceiving speed that allowed him to make a...

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...

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...

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...

Ray Drew & The Crock-Pot Plan! Coming out of Thomas County Central HS Ray Drew was ranked as one of the top prospects in the state of Georgia and in the entire country.  At 6'5 250 pounds he was a 5-Star freak athlete that looked perfect to play the role of OLB in Todd Grantham's system.  As a true freshmen he saw some playing...

CHANGE in PHILOSOPHY on Offense v. Missouri? What has the hallmark been of this UGA offense over the last season and a half?  Explosive plays.  Coming into Saturday's game against Tennessee the Bulldogs were #2 in the nation, only behind Oregon, in plays over 25+ yards since the start of the 2012 season.  Plain and simple the Bulldogs...

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...

WON the Game...LOST the Season? Any road victory in the SEC is a good victory.  Beating Tennessee on the road is a good win.  When you consider you had to play the game without your two best running backs (Gurley and Marshall) and without three of your top four receivers (Bennett, Scott-Wesley, Mitchell) it makes the win...

Tennessee Fans NOT too CONFIDENT In my usual weekly feature when I know someone who has the pulse of the opposing team and fan base I like to ask them a few questions.  This weekend I reached out to a friend of mine and he provided some quality analysis and insight into the attitude of the Volunteer fan base:#1 –...

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...

NinerNation - EVALUATING Charlotte 2014 Recruiting Class! With Charlotte moving to the FBS level and joining Conference USA the 49ers recruiting class this season will be very important to the future of the program.  It is a big step up from playing programs like Campbell and Chowan to playing programs like Lousiana Tech, North Texas and a once proud...

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 - UGA v. 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...

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...

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...

Herbstreit DEMANDS Respect for UGA UGA is finally starting to get some respect from the national media after the game victory against LSU.  One person who has taken the most notice is Kirk Herbstreit who tweeted this morning at 8:18 A.M.:“UGA with that huge win deserves a lot of credit & needs to be rewarded in the...

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...

Position Change PERMANENT for Harvey-Clemons? On Thursday before the LSU game I wrote the blog titled “Position Change for Josh Harvey-Clemons”.  In that blog I said the following:“I don't like him at the star because it really takes him out of the game to a certain extent. He has to play a lot of man coverage where if the QB does...

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...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry – UGA v. LSU PREDICTION! The Bayou Bengals come calling on the Dawgs in Athens this week in another game that will determine National Championship aspirations.  This is the third game for the Bulldogs already in only five weeks that they will have played with everything on the line.  LSU on the other hand played a tough...

Position CHANGE for Josh Harvey-Clemons This weekend's game against LSU is going to be a whole different kind of game for the entire UGA defense.  LSU is going line up in your traditional I-formation and two tight end sets more than any offense UGA has seen this season.  Also with LSU, what you see is what you get a majority of the...

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 Matchups v. LSU #1 – LSU Left Tackle & Left Guard v. UGA Defensive End & Nose Guard – LSU loves to run the ball to the left side on offense behind La'El Collins and the monstrous Vadal Alexander.  Those two young men are huge and they are punishing run blockers.  So far this season LSU is...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - The GOOD, BAD & UGLY v. North Texas THE GOODAaron Murray - Sure, Aaron made one terrible decision on the attempted throw to Michael Bennett in the red zone and he was the first to admit it.  Outside of that Aaron had another excellent game.  He is more accurate then ever and when you combine...

Aaron Murray's SCARY Prediction “At the pregame dinner, Murray told me he was going to go off.  I kid you not.  He told me he was going to go off and he told me to get open and to get open often.  So when he told me that, I had no doubts”.  Justin Scott-Wesley on what Aaron Murray told him before the...

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...

#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...

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...

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...

Position CHANGE for Paris Bostick - Good or Bad? In some exciting news for UGA Paris Bostick has been cleared to return to practice all be it in a limited capacity.  The 6'1 217 pound true freshmen from Plant HS in Florida had surgery before fall practice to fix a nagging toe injury from his HS days.  Initially thought to be recruited to play...

Bobo Getting CREATIVE with Marshall Up until last season I had questions about Mike Bobo's ability to come up with creative ways to get players the ball in a position to best use their skill set.  Against Clemson, those questions came up again when Todd Gurley pulled his quad muscle and Bobo repeatedly rammed the ball straight...

Will Friend’s CHALLENGE to the Offensive Line The UGA offensive line played their best game in two years 10 days ago against South Carolina.  They were getting crushed by the media and fans after a subpar performance against Clemson and all they did was rise to the occasion against one of the best defensive lines in the country and dominate...

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...

Way to Early ELISHA SHAW Signing Day PREDICTION? Elisha Shaw - 6'6 296 - DL - Elisha Shaw is a great young man and an incredibly talented player who unfortunately is dealing with some health issues as of right now.  Unfortunately he has not been able to play to date this season and is currently in a neck brace. That is his #1...

Way to Early RASHAAN EVANS Signing Day PREDICTION RaShaan Evans - 6'3 225 - ILB/OLB - Evans is one of my favorite prospects in the class of 2014.  He can play ILB or OLB on the collegiate level and can work in either the 3-4 or the 4-3.  He has a great combination of size and speed and the physicality to contribute from Day 1....

Way to Early DAVID SHARPE Signing Day PREDICTION David Sharpe - 6'6 295 - LT - Sharpe is one of the harder prospects to project at this moment as it seems like there is a lot of uncertainty around him.  For quite a while he was considered a lock to Florida but after a summer trip to UGA the Bulldogs began to gain momentum.  It...

Way to Early LORENZO CARTER Signing Day PREDICTION Lorenzo Carter - 6'6 235 - OLB - Carter's recruitment has been all over the place over the last few months as you would expect from a 5-star prospect of his caliber but three schools have been consistent over that time - Georgia, Alabama and Florida.  He has now scheduled...

Way to Early JOSH MALONE Signing Day PREDICTION Josh Malone - 6'3 190 - WR - Malone reminds me a great deal of former UGA wide receiver Mohammad Massaquoi.  He is a polished route runner, smooth athlete and has excellent hands.  He doesn't have the A.J. Green/Julio Jones “wow” factor but he has everything else it takes to be a...

PERFECT Test for UGA Defense! This Saturday the North Texas Mean Green (named after Mean Joe Green) will be coming to Athens to face the Georgia Bulldogs coming off a bye week after two brutal weeks to start the season.  The defense has now had two extra weeks of practice and the coaches have really had some time...

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...

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 - 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),...

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....

Clowney CRYING, Gurley RISING The ESPN hype train is beginning to die down on Jadeveon Clowney after two lackluster performances by the impossible standards set by the four letter network.  Johnny Manziel's hype train could come to an abrupt stop as well if the Alabama defense is able to contain him and the Tide offense is...

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...

Aaron Murray's FAVORITE New WEAPON! There is no doubt whatsoever that the loss of Malcolm Mitchell hurts.  He is probably UGA's most elusive receiver in the open field as we saw against Florida last year when he broke a tackle and then ran through a facemask to score a huge touchdown.  However, one thing we saw last year when the...

Aaron Murray’s FAVORITE New WEAPON! There is no doubt whatsoever that the loss of Malcolm Mitchell hurts.  He is probably UGA's most elusive receiver in the open field as we saw against Florida last year when he broke a tackle and then ran through a facemask to score a huge touchdown.  However, one thing we saw last year when the...

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...

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...

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...

Dawgs Still Have to EARN RESPECT! It is great to be a Georgia Bulldog after a victory like the one on Saturday evening.  That was one of the most emotional up and down games I have been a part of in 30 years of watching Georgia football.  Once we built a 17-3 lead I thought we might blow their doors off, then when the game was...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update This is a huge recruiting weekend for the Bulldogs with all of the high profile recruits that will be on campus this weekend.  This weekend alongside the LSU weekend is probably the Dawgs two most important game weekends of the season.  It is just another reason why the atmosphere needs to be...

Gamecocks v. Georgia PREDICTION! It is time for my favorite game of the season.  Nothing gives me more pride and brings me more happiness than beating Georgia, except for beating Clemson.  But this game carries so much more meaning because it is a conference game and a victory would make us the favorite to win the SEC East this...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - 5 KEY Matchups v. South Carolina #1 - Kenarious Gates (LT) v. Jadeveon Clowney (DE) - Everyone knows that Clowney is one of, if not the best player in college football.  He has been taking a beating in the media for a perceived lack of effort and being out of condition vs. North Carolina.  You know he will come...

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...

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...

For the LADIES (and the men who keep them HAPPY) First, I want to thank all you who read and commented on my blog last week. UGA Football and Fashion are two of my foremost passions. So being able to combine them into one blog is a dream come true.I know that this week's blog is a little late, so if you all really like the below...

BIG PAPI at Sanford Stadium? Many UGA fans may or may not remember the name Chris Carter. No, I am not talking about the legendary NFL wide receiver, I am talking about Major Chris Carter of the United States Armed Forces. Major Carter is the UGA graduate who hung the University of Georgia flag in front of Saddam's palace...

Something SPECIAL for UGA v. South Carolina? I had wrote a blog a few months back titled “Something Special for South Carolina”. It was a place for me to put my ideas and UGA fans to put theirs on what they would like the University to do to help get the crowd extra hyped up and ridiculously loud for this weekend's game. There were a lot of...

What Was that COACH Bobo?? After the great season Coach Bobo had last year calling plays I am trying to be patient with him given that it is only one game into the season but I just can't move on from some of the terrible play-calling from the Clemson game.  I mean seriously, there were several times when I think my 10...

DOMINATE The Dawgs This Weekend? I don't know about you but I am feeling very optimistic about the game this weekend against UGA after watching them play Clemson this weekend and seeing their weaknesses.  In my opinion their weaknesses are at areas where it is our strength. Here are my thoughts:(1) The UGA Offensive Line...

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...

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...

Is UGA Offensive Line SOFT? This year one of the strengths of the UGA offensive line should be the offensive line.  Coming out of spring and fall practice we heard a lot of good things about the talent and depth that we had returning this season (including all 5 starters from last season) but in the first game of the season...

ImYourHuckleberry - The Great, Good, Bad & Ugly v. Clemson Another heartbreaking loss for the Dawgs against a very good football team.  I'm sure everyone is hurting today but there are some things to be optimistic about and some things to worry about.  Below is my rapid reaction from the game last night.GREATTodd Gurley was great, there is...

Carolina v. UNC - Week 1 REPORT CARD One game in the books and one victory.  It wasn't the best game I have seen us play but it was good enough to get the job done and good enough to where I never had any doubt that we were going to win the game.  I'll definitely take the victory, there was definitely some good and some bad as is...

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...

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...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - 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...

ImYourHuckleberry - 5 Clemson Players You NEED to Know Any UGA fan that pays attention to UGA's schedule and opponents has heard the names Tahj Boyd and Sammy Watkins.  They are the household names for Clemson just like Aaron Murray and Todd Gurley are household names for UGA.  But outside of the household names there are a few names that you need to...

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...

Star STUDDED Recruits Visiting UGA v. Clemson Game Clemson has had a lot of success this year invading the state of Georgia for some of the top players.  For proof see the names DeShaun Watson, Adam Choice, Korie Rogers and Demarre Kitt.  Watson is the top QB in the state, Rogers is the one of the top ILB and Kitt is the top WR.  While a victory...

ImYourHuckleberry - Week 1 PREDICTIONS ImYourHuckleberry - Week 1 PREDICTIONSNorth Carolina @ #6 South Carolina - Thursday @ 6:00 PMThe season starts off with a bang when the Tarheels travel to Columbia to face the Gamecocks.  This is the battle of the Carolinas and the winner will earn the right to call themselves...

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...

C’MON Man – UGA v. Clemson Prediction Huck is usually the man when it comes to predictions but I figured that I would take my shot at a prediction for the UGA v. Clemson game. I have to go ahead and make my prediction now because I am going to be on a mission trip with my church to Ecuador for the next 7 days arriving back in Atlanta...

Freshmen Cornerbacks SHOWING OUT at UGA There has been a lot of worries about the Bulldogs safeties during fall camp and those concerns are well warranted.  Tray Matthews and Corey Moore have not been able to stay healthy during fall practice.  Shaq Fluker has also been in and out of practice quite a bit while  Josh Harvey-Clemmons is...

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 - 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...

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

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

MUST READ!! Congrats to All North Carolina Dawgs!! Congratulations North Carolina Dawgs!!  Our license plate drive is now complete and it is official - we will be getting a license plate with the G on it for the state of North Carolina.  We had to get 300 tag requests for vehicles by the end of August and we have reached that goal.A lot of...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - 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...

Time to Push PANIC Button! Yesterday's practice now in the backseat, the Bulldogs now have only 11 days until they face the Clemson Tigers under the bright lights in a Primetime game in Death Valley.  Much of the team has been getting healthy over the last week with OLB's James DeLoach, Leonard Floyd and Davin Bellamy all...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Nick Glass - SS - In a decision that was shocking, not in the decision that was made, but how it became public, Nick Glass decided to decommit from UGA.  A little over three months ago it was a common thought that Glass was going to decommit from Georgia and that he was going to already be...

Wednesday NIGHT GAME Between the Hedges Tomorrow is setting up to probably be the most important practice of fall practice.  The Bulldogs first scrimmaged a week ago and the team was just coming off a two-a-day practice and had been grinding through physical camp practices which led to a bit of a fatigued and lackluster performance....

RISKS Taken on Special Teams? The Bulldogs conducted their first major special teams workout of the fall on Monday when they dedicated a large portion of practice to getting the special teams prepared for the opening weekend.  With the Dawgs facing Clemson the opening weekend and having to try to cover Sammy Watkins on punts...

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

ImYourHuckleberry - Shattle Fenteng PREDICTION As you have certainly heard UGA put another offer out there to 6'2 200 CB/S – Shattle Fenteng.  Fenteng was a standout player at Grayson HS in Georgia and had a quite a few scholarship offers from major schools coming out of HS but was unable to qualify due to academic issues.  Therefore he was...

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...

MUST READ!! All North Carolina Dawgs!! First and foremost we want to say thank you to all of you who have sent in your North Carolina license plate requests! Also we want to send a big thank you to everyone who attended Bulldogs After Business Hours events in both Raleigh and Charlotte. You have done an amazing job and we are getting...

SHOCKING Recruiting Development In a big surprise, and a major upset in my opinion, the #1 QB in the class of 2015 Ricky Town has committed to Alabama.  As you know, Town had come to the southeast and made several stops including to UGA and Alabama.  Many thought that this would be a decision that came down to Alabama, UGA,...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update! Shattle Fenteng – 6'2 200 CB – This is a big offer that went out for the Bulldogs and one that we have been expecting for quite some time.  Fenteng is a 6'2 200 pound CB that caught the Bulldogs eye when they were scouting his teammate at Hutchinson C.C. in Kansas.  Fenteng is a...

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....

Will Friend BANKING on CONTINUITY! We are now through practice #3 out of 29.  We are starting to see trends emerge and beginning to get a true idea of how things will shape up this fall, especially along the offensive line.  Coming into fall practice we were all expecting to see Xzavier Ward running with the first unit because of...

Behind ENEMY Lines – Clemson UPDATE I was able to talk to a good friend of mine that is wired in down in Clemson to talk to him about what is going on in Death Valley with their first fall practice set to take place tonight.  Obviously, he is incredibly fired up just like all of the UGA fans are.  I asked him to send me a basic...

Key INJURED Players Recovering Well! Two very talented players with question marks lingering regarding their “true health” status began to be answered at the first practice of the fall yesterday.  These two players, Michael Bennett and Toby Johnson, should be big time impact players for UGA this season.  Both Bennett and Johnson...

UGA Receiver Ready to EXPLODE onto the Scene! With Aaron Murray entering his fourth season as starting QB for the Georgia Bulldogs there are a bunch of receivers that have the opportunity to really benefit from having an experienced and accurate QB getting them the ball.  When you look back to last season Aaron Murray completed 20 or more...

Making the MOST out of his LAST Chance? When the suspension of Josh Harvey-Clemmons was announced for the first game of the season shortly after his admission to using marijuana it left a door wide open for Corey Moore to make an impact.  Out of HS he was a can't miss prospect that many believed would be one of the next UGA safeties...

ImYourHuckleberry - RUN for the ROSES Begins Today! Practice opens in Athens and across the country today with many teams sharing high hopes.  One of those teams and one of those fan bases is the University of Georgia.  As always UGA has three goals.  (1) Win the SEC East.  (2) Win the SEC Championship.  (3) Win the National Championship.  In...

ImYourHuckleberry - Fall Camp Question #5 What Will the STARTING 5 be on the Offensive Line?UGA is returning their entire two-deep depth chart on the offensive line from last season this spring. That has left the Dawgs with a bunch of options but also a bunch of questions.  In my mind, the only two players with a...

ImYourHuckleberry - Fall Camp Question #4 Who will be the THIRD Tailback?We all know what Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall can do. There is a reason that every major news publication says that UGA has the best tailback duo in the country.  They are insanely talented and complement each others games so well....

ImYourHuckleberry - Fall Camp Question #2 Which INCOMING CB Will Step...

ImYourHuckleberry - Fall Camp Question #1 Who Will START Opposite Tray Matthews at Clemson?Josh Harvey-Clemmons suspension is looming larger with each and every day.  However, even after Harvey-Clemmons returns from his suspension he will only be playing strong safety about 35% of the time because UGA spends 65%...

Please Keep Calm The season is close so please keep calm.

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update! Dallas Warmack - 6'2 290 - OG - As you already know, Dallas Warmack has committed to the Crimson Tide. Before I went on Vacation right after Dawg Night I said that “UGA's only chance to land Dallas is for him to fall in love with UGA and commit on Dawg Night, otherwise it is “Roll Tide”.  It...

This is OUR YEAR, This is OUR TIME! My vacation gave me time to step back and gain a little bit of perspective on the upcoming season.  Sometimes when you get so close to everything you get blinders on and you don't see the big picture.  Tonight I sat down and stayed up until midnight watching the best college football game of the...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - 4 KEYS to Fall Camp! It is almost here!  With each passing day we are closer and closer to strapping those chinstraps tight at “little” Death Valley in Clemson for one of the premier matchups of the season.  However, before the moment we have all been waiting for since the final whistle sounded in our victory over...

TOUGHEST in the NATION! UGA has a very difficult schedule for the 2013 Season, maybe the toughest in the country.  That can be debated.  But one thing that cannot be debated is that UGA has the toughest opening four week slate of games of any team in the country.  The Dawgs open on the road against Clemson who will...

EARLY Signing Period Gaining MOMENTUM At this year's ACC Meetings there was a vote held regarding whether or not some were in favor of an early signing period like they have in many other college sports and it was unanimously approved.  Other conferences have held similar votes and it has received similar support.  While it certainly...

Dawgs BUILDING a MONSTER! There is no question that UGA has had a ton of talent on the defensive side of the ball since Todd Grantham has been in Athens.  Some of the defenses have lived up to expectations while some have underwhelmed.  Regardless, there seems to have been a constant theme in Athens.  There has been a...

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...

FIRST PLAY in South Carolina Game! You have all heard Clowney's comments that Aaron Murray is scared of Clowney.  When a guy like Clowney has that much confidence and play with no fear and reckless abandon and no hesitation that is bad news for any opponent.  Therefore, when UGA faces South Carolina and Clowney you send a message...

THANK YOU Mr. Clowney! Earlier this season we sent a thank you to Sammy Watkins for Clemson who started off the trash talk and gave UGA just that little extra edge and motivation heading into a huge game to start the season.  Watkins launched a general attack on UGA saying that Clemson should crush UGA to start the...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update - Part 2 The numbers crunch has finally begun in the Class of 2014.  After getting 4 commitments and losing 1 over the weekend UGA now has 15 players committed.  That leaves UGA with most likely 7 or 8 positions left and that is a very difficult position in a class where many top prospects could wait to...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update - Part 1 Spending Dawg Night weekend at your in-laws isn't ideal for the biggest recruiting weekend of the  year but sacrifices must be made for a great marriage and a great wife.  So there I was this weekend feverishly following the developments from Dawg Night and all I can say is "What a night!  What a...

Who Will COMMIT at DAWG NIGHT?? Tonight is the big night!  Every year Dawg Night brings many of the Southeast's Top Prospects to Athens for a night of competition and fun.  This year is no different than any other year and may even be considered better because of the amount of 4 and 5 star recruits that will be on campus....

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...

UGA Offense to Play FAST Tempo in 2013 All of the signs coming out of Athens are pointing to the UGA offense playing at a much faster tempo on 2013.  As has been well documented the UGA offensive line appears to have made a big push to get in better cardiovascular shape and lose bad weight during the spring and summer.  That was...

BIGGEST Shoes to Fill on Defense UGA lost a bunch of incredibly talented players in from the 2012 defensive depth chart to graduation and the NFL.  The attrition was so extreme that the Dawgs are only returning two starters on defense and during the first 4 games of the season they will face 3 Top 10 teams.  There is no team in...

Dallas Warmack & UGA Last night on Twitter, Radi Nabulsi of ESPN tweeted that Dallas Warmack, the 6'2 295 pound brother of Alabama star Chance Warmack, announced that he will be making a college decision soon.  This statement came on the heels of a visit to UGA on Tuesday where he was able to spend some quality time...

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...

UGA’s Offensive Line 6th Man One of the battles I am most looking forward to seeing in fall practice is along the offensive line.  I think a lot of UGA fans are underestimating the quality and quantity of the offensive lineman we currently have on the roster.  I think it is a lock that if healthy David Andrews will be your...

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

MAKE or BREAK for Georgia with 5-Star Recruit? The Bulldog coaching staff received and fans received some great news on Monday evening – Lorenzo Carter will be in Athens for Dawg Night!  Unless you have been living under a rock you know that Carter is a 6'5 225 freak athlete that would fit perfectly in Todd Grantham's 3-4 defense at outside...

STAR Studded Dawg Night Visitor List! I have worked hard on the social media outlets to try to confirm visitors for Dawg Night this Friday night.  From what I have been able to gather to this point, mainly from Twitter this is the list I have come up with.   From what I have seen nearly every player that is already...

UGA's Top PRIORITY in 2014 Recruiting Class Now that UGA has 12 players committed in this Class that will likely only total somewhere between 20-22 the Bulldogs are going to start to get pick about who they take as a part of this recruiting class and who is left on the outside looking in.  That being said there are still quite a few big...

ESPN Analyst RAVES About Several Dawg Recruits Over the weekend, ESPN continued to evaluate the Opening.  They did several “superlative” lists and there were several UGA recruits/commit that made the final list.  The most surprising omission was Nick Chubb, but the more I thought about it, it does not surprise.  Playing two-hand touch...

ImYourHuckleberry - Georgia WILL BEAT Clemson On TV here in Charlotte over the weekend they were showing some of the best ACC games from the 2012 Season.  Two of the games included Clemson.  The first game was Clemson v. South Carolina and the second game was Clemson v. LSU.  Between those two games the formula was made clear for how you...

MUST READ - All North Carolina Dawgs!! First and foremost we want to say thank you to all of you who have sent in your North Carolina license plate requests!  Also we want to send a big thank you to everyone who attended Bulldogs After Business Hours events in both Raleigh and Charlotte.  You have done an amazing job and we are...

PREDICTING the 2013 Regular Season (With Poll) We have all had plenty of time to take a look at the UGA schedule and evaluate the opponents on the schedule and I wanted to put together a poll to get the consensus of the Bulldog Nation on what they believe UGA's record will be this season.  It is a schedule that has me very conflicted.  If we...

A MUST Watch for Every UGA Fan & RECRUIT! There have been a lot of great players to come through the University of Georgia.  Some more gifted than others, some with better work ethics and some with more mental toughness.  But one player that encompassed all of these traits and could truly be my favorite Georgia Bulldog I ever saw play in...

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 – MOCK Recruiting Class 2014 – July Update There have been a few minor changes in my Mock Recruiting Class for 2014 for July that are mostly for the positive in the direction of the Dawgs with a few very talented players joining the class at this point.  The players listed below in the “Bold” text are current UGA commits that I believe...

Myth of CULTURE and LEADERSHIP in Athens? Every offseason their tends to be a lot of talk around the program about how the team is working harder over the summer than they ever have.  There is talk about how there is more leadership around the program from the upperclassmen.  There is talk about how dedicated everyone is to winning an...

ImYourHuckleberry – HUGE Recruiting Update Kendall Baker – 6'6 290 – DL/OTKendall Baker will be announcing his college decision tonight with the main contenders still appearing to be UGA and Auburn.  As long as he is still a “take” by UGA we don't foresee him playing is college football anywhere but UGA.  The most...

Dawg RECRUITS Show Out at The Opening! Since Nike began the SPARQ Testing and ESPN began broadcasting The Opening on Live TV this is one of my favorite recruiting events to watch.  No doubt there are other great recruiting events across the country such as the Rivals 5-Star Challenge and some of the 247 Camps but unless you subscribe...

Bulldogs HIDDEN Gem in 2013 Class The more and more I hear about 2013 UGA Signee Brendan Douglas the more I get fired up to see him carry the ball.  All of his teammates are raving about him in summer workouts, about how strong and physical he is, how hard he works and his deceptive speed.  I have seen it making the rounds that...

GREAT News on Toby Johnson There is a reason that Toby Johnson was one of, if not the best defensive lineman in the Junior College ranks.  At 6'5 310 pounds he is a hell of an athlete.  However, mid-season last year he suffered what many thought would be a devastating knee injury that would likely keep a man of his size...

GOODNIGHT Sammy Watkins! “If we come out and beat Georgia -- not just beat 'em but beat the mess out of 'em like we should -- I don't see no problems in getting started in the right direction. I don't have disrespect for (Georgia) or for nobody else, I just believe we can be just the kind of team we want to...

ImYourHuckleberry - Kendall Baker PREDICTION There is one announcement that has been made regarding Kendall Baker – He will be making his commitment to where he will be playing college football for the next four years on Wednesday, January 3rd at approximately 6:45 PM.  At 6'6 290 pounds, Baker already has the look of a grown man...

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 Finally Has That DUDE!!! Hear me out on this.  When you look back over the last 10 years of teams who have won National Championships every team has had a guy on their team, a superstar that carried them to victory in their close games.  In 2004 Southern Cal had Reggie Bush, in 2005 Texas had Vince Young, in 2006 and...

ImYourHuckleberry - MONSTER Recruiting Update! D.J. Smith – CB/S – 6'0 180The stud defensive back from Walton will be in Athens for a visit this weekend where he will have the opportunity to get an up close and personal look at UGA.  He hasn't been on the campus very often and there is the question of whether or not he...

ImYourHuckleberry - Top 10 BREAKOUT Players - #3 Johnathon Taylor - 6'4 335 - DLIt is time for "Country Strong" to have his coming out party and I believe that is exactly what is going to happen.  There are few things these guy agree on when it comes to who runs the fastest or jumps the highest but when anyone asks who the strongest...

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

ImYourHuckleberry – Top 10 BREAKOUT Players - #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...

ImYourHuckleberry – Top 10 BREAKOUT Players - #7 Justin Scott-Wesley – WR – 5'11 206When the Dawgs signed Scott-Wesley two years ago everyone in the state of Georgia had heard about this kid.  However, it was not for football – it was for track.  Scott-Wesley was dominating track and field in the 100 and 200 meters blowing away the...

ImYourHuckleberry – Top 10 BREAKOUT Players - #8 Ray Drew – DE – 6'5 280Last night after having the opportunity to listen to Thomas Davis speak in Charlotte and spend a moment talking about Recruiting Rankings and how a players “stars” stick with them the rest of their career it really put things into perspective.  Drew was rated as a...

ImYourHuckleberry – Top 10 BREAKOUT Players - #9 Keith Marshall – 5'11 219 – RBI know what you are saying, Keith Marshall already broke out last year!  The kid had 759 yards rushing with averaged 6.5 yards per carry and had 8 TD's.  Yes, those numbers are impressive for any true freshmen in the SEC but Marshall's performance was largely...

ImYourHuckleberry - Top 10 BREAKOUT Players - #10 Sheldon Dawson – 5'11 190 – CBLast season when the Dawgs were desperately searching for talented corners in the HS ranks to add to their depth chart that would soon be depleted by graduation your eyes kept moving toward Sheldon Dawson when you watched him on film.  Out at Ridgeway HS in...

UGA Falling Further BEHIND for Lambert Credit for this information to Michael Carvell of the AJC for a nice piece of reporting and a solid update the AJC is reporting that the Dawgs continue to fall further behind for DaVonte Lambert's commitment.  As I had reported approximately two weeks ago the Dawgs had fallen behind the Gators on...

SEC Needs to Make a CHANGE!! The SEC is the most dominant football conference in the country PERIOD.  It will take something truly extraordinary for a team outside the SEC to win a BCS National Championship in the coming years, the disparity is that great in my opinion.  I would liken it to something like the worst NFL team...

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...

PROJECTING the STARTING Offensive Line LT:  John Theus – 6'6 298 – Theus had a rough spring and the coaches sent him a wake-up call in the spring by putting him as 2nd String Right Tackle on the final depth chart.  I have a gut feeling that Theus will get the wakeup call and elevate his game to a next...

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

Dawg RUN Defense Will Be BETTER! I am someone who appreciates almost all sports but this is a point in time where I start dying for some football.  I don't care if it is NFL Pre-Season, Training Camp, fall practice or watching games from last year.  So yesterday as I was having one of my football withdraw days I decided to kick...

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...

Kendall Baker to COMMIT SOON! In my opinion the most underrated player in the state of Georgia in the Class of 2014 is nearing a decision.  Kendall Baker, a 6'6 285 DT/OT, from Marist is almost ready to make his college decision that appears like it will come down to UGA and Auburn.  While he has made it well known that UGA...

Dawgs Land LB Commit!! Like I said after information surfaced that Detric Dukes had an offer from UGA he would be committing to the Bullldogs sooner than later.  Today was the day that he decided to "Commit to the G!"  This was an offer that many suspected would be coming after Korie Rogers decided to commit to Clemson...

Only a Matter of Time for UGA and TOP RECRUIT! The Dawgs recruiting roll is continuing from Spring into Summer.  Yesterday on the 1st Day of Summer the Georgia staff hosted one of their biggest recruits and his family in Athens.  Dyshon Sims is a 6'5 275 pound tackle from Lowndes HS that has been one of the hottest prospects in the country...

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 –...

MUST READ! NC Dawgs Come MEET Thomas Davis and Get Your License Plate! First and foremost we want to say thank you to all of you who have sent in your North Carolina license plate requests!  You have done an amazing...

COMMIT Tomorrow? Huck is on fire!!  In an update to the article Huck wrote yesterday titled, “An INSTANT Commit” he had stated that one target the Dawgs could offer at any moment was inside linebacker Detric Dukes of Tucker HS. He thought the Bulldogs might wait until Dawg Night but the Bulldogs pulled the...

UGA’s Top 6 IMPACT Freshmen/Transfers I posted a poll several weeks ago regarding who UGA fans thought would be the biggest impact incoming player for the Dawgs this season.  The runaway leader was Tray Matthews and Reggie Wilkerson who suffered a season ending knee injury was also high up on that list.  Using the input of Dawg fans...

An IN-DEPTH Look at UGA’s Scholarship Numbers Freshmen Sophomore

Da'Shawn Hand's IMPACT on Lorenzo Carter There is one aspect of the UGA v. Alabama battle for Lorenzo Carter that not many people are talking about.  That is where the #1 Player in the Nation, Da'Shawn Hand ends up playing his college football.  At the Rivals 5-Star Challenge these two were on the same field and had the opportunity to...

Oh Urban, What Standards You Set I can't even watch College Football Live on ESPN anymore or basically any ESPN college football programming because it is a love fest for Nick Saban and even worse Urban Meyer.  In my opinion I can stand listening to Nick Saban because you can't hate him you can only be jealous of his success....

TOP Linebacker Names UGA His Leader Last night on Twitter I saw that Rashaan Evans had releated his Top 5 in order.  At 6'3 220 pounds he is one of the fastest linebackers I have watched in YouTube highlights and from what I read he consistently runs under a 4.5 forty.  As far as I am concerned once he puts on 15-20 pounds of good...

2014 Recruiting Class Mark Fox's MAKE or BREAK Moment The Class of 2014 in Georgia is one of the best when it comes to basketball that there has been in the state for the last few years.  Not only is there your top tier players but there is also just a quality amount of depth at a variety of positions.  I think that it is very important that Mark...

ImYourHuckleberry - MOCK Recruiting Class 2014 - June Edition Below is my 2014 Mock Recruiting Class for June.  The players in Bold are players that I have added to the list since the list I put out in mid-May.  As you will see several of those new additions are new UGA commits:  Jacob Park, Gilbert Johnson and Jake Edwards.  One player that I was very...

An INSTANT Commit? The Georgia Bulldogs have great history and a great bond with Tucker HS.  UGA standouts Asher Allen and Thomas Brown are two of the most notable players to come from Tucker to play football for the Dawgs.  Also you can't forget about Patrick Pass who may not have lived up to expectations at UGA...

Raekwon McMillan BURNING Bridges to UGA In a recruiting piece by the AJC posted at 3:27 A.M. this morning is an interview with Raekwon McMillan.  When asked what his feeling were about UGA he said: “My whole community, they are Georgia fans or Dawg fans. At first, it was just a no-brainer to stay at home. But some of the top...

Dawgs OFFER 6’7 320 14-Year Old A name that you need to get to know because you will be hearing it a lot over the next couple years in recruiting circles is Ben Cleveland.  Cleveland is from Toccoa, GA and plays offensive tackle for Stephens County.  While it isn't entirely rare to see a HS freshmen start along the offensive...

ImYourHuckleberry - TOP 20 Recruits in Georgia #1 - DE/OLB - Lorenzo Carter – 6'5 235 – He is still raw but has the highest upside of any player in the state.  It will be a UGA v. Alabama battle until the end.#2 - DL - Elisha Shaw – 6'5 295 – He is a monster of a young man just scratching the surface...

Ricky Town & UGA There is no question about it, Ricky Town is a flat out stud.  At 6'4 205 pounds heading into his junior year of HS his game is refined beyond almost anyone of his age.  He throws an incredible ball and his ability to read coverage is well above average.  That does not even mention his physical...

UGA Recruits SOAR Up Rankings When it comes to recruiting rankings and evaluating talent 247Sports is probably the best in the business right alongside ESPN.  Typically I trust their ratings even though we inevitable disagree on some prospects but it is fun to watch how their Prospect Ratings change throughout the process,...

UGA’s 2 Most IMPORTANT Recruits Left on the Board It has been a quiet day here in the office so I have spent some time looking at Scout and 247Sports and the commitments/targets of teams in the SEC.  Naturally, I spent a lot of time on UGA but as started looking through the rest of the SEC when I got to Alabama's page I was blown away.  They are...

Jacob Park v. Brice Ramsey (with Poll) There has been a lot made out of the commitment of Jacob Park to UGA.  I like many others was thinking that UGA most likely would not take a QB in the Class of 2014 and if they did it would have to be that a rare and special talent.  Since UGA offered Park I have spent a lot of time watching his...

Lemay UNHAPPY at UGA? I live in Matthews, NC and I have followed the Lemay family quite closely as the three boys are very talented football players.  As a matter of fact, I was there in person when Uriah Lemay held his announced his commitment.  I wasn't surprised to see him commit to UGA given the fact his brother...

Georgia DONE with Lambert? It is now making the rounds on Twitter that DaVonte Lambert had a great visit to Florida and has now named the Gators his leader.  If you have followed my past recruiting blogs I have consistently mentioned the Gators as the biggest threat to the Dawgs for Lambert's commitment.  The reason I say...

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,...

MUST READ! Calling All North Carolina Dawgs! The Charlotte, NC Chapter of the Bulldog Club is in the middle of the final big push to get a University of Georgia license tag for the state of North Carolina.  We currently have 200 people who have registered for the license plates and the DMV needs 300 registrations before they will...

Football Facility UPGRADES There has been a lot of talk around the football program of upgrades that need to be made to the facilities.  When I am around people I hear everything suggested from adding 20,000 more seats (including different ideas on how to do that), to a wireless network for the stadium so you can use your...

Most INTIMDATING Stadium in SEC This is something I have put some thought into because I always see rankings of the SEC Stadiums.  However, a lot of time they don't explain their criteria and mine are simple.  I have actually been to every stadium in the SEC (including Mizzou and Texas A&M) and I wanted to share my opinion on...

Gamecocks BETTER Than Last Year This is one of the topics I am most intrigued by and I had the opportunity to ask my South Carolina insider a few question about the Gamecocks aimed at getting the answer of to the question of - Will the Gamecocks be better than last year?1) How is the South Carolina QB situation...

Kamara and Henry Long FORGOTTEN! In last years class UGA had  bunch of close calls on the recruiting trail.  Montravious Adams was almost a Dawg.  Reuben Foster flirted with the Dawgs for an entire year.  Laremy Tunsil was long thought to be a lock to UGA until Ole Miss came along.  But probably nothing hurt more than Derrick...

UGA's Best Sport? At UGA, Football is the sport that moves the needle but one sport that deserves more recognition than it gets for the outstanding quality of players they have produced and the high level at which the compete is the UGA golf team.  This year four former UGA golfers have won on the PGA Tour or...

ImYourHuckleberry - MONSTER Recruiting Update!! Elisha Shaw – 6'5 295 – DL – Shaw's recruitment has been a rollercoaster and changes on a daily basis.  At first Alabama was his leader, then Alabama and UGA were co-leaders, and then he visits Ole Miss and they immediately become his leader.  A lot can and will change between...

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...

Something SPECIAL for South Carolina Continued... I wrote a quick blog a few weeks ago making a few suggestions on what I thought could make the crowd in Athens ridiculously loud and extra hyped when the Gamecocks come to town.  Now something obvious that I didn't think of was pointed out to me that has to be #1 on that list, BEAT CLEMSON!...

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...

POLL: TOUGHEST Game on Dawgs Schedule in 2013 I think it can be agreed upon by all that UGA has one of the toughest schedules in the SEC if not the Country in 2013.  Therefore I wanted to pose the question of which game on the schedule you believe will be the toughest.  When I was going through trying to rank the most difficult games on the...

ImYourHuckleberry - Malkom Parrish PREDICTION At 5'9 190 pounds Parrish may be the best cornerback in the state of Georgia.  Despite his lack of height he has great physicality that will allow him to match up with taller receivers.  He is also a rare athlete with an exception burst that will allow him to make up ground on even the fastest...

ImYourHuckleberry - Nick Chubb PREDICTION One of the fastest risers along the recruiting trail over the last couple seasons has been Nick Chubb.  Heading into his junior season he was a relatively unknown commodity outside of Cedartown but due to his tenacious work ethic in the weight room he broke out in his junior season with a monster...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Part II While the next 10 days are huge recruiting days on the UGA campus there are also some of UGA's top recruits that won't be at UGA for these camps because they will be at the Rivals 5-Star Challenge.  Events like this are great to follow and see the results of because you get to see what I like to...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update These next 9 days are some of the biggest days of recruiting cycle for the Dawgs.  It is not quite as big as Dawg Night but there is a heck of a group of guys from the 2014 and 2015 Class that will be on campus to visit (camp) UGA and/or participate in a 7-on-7 tournament.  The first camp was...

Dawg Going After MASSIVE JUCO Tackle There has been a lot of talk about how in the Class of 2014 one major positions of need is at offensive tackle.  However, unfortunately for the Dawgs the crop of in-state lineman is not very strong.  That has sent the Dawgs scouring the Southeast and even the Midwest looking for tackles.  It...

Something SPECIAL for UGA v. USC Game!! Unfortunately I was at that at that debacle in the Worst Tailgating Town in the SEC (Columbia, SC) for the game last season.  I am not even going get started on how terrible the tailgating experience is there but what I am going to get into is how insane Williams-Brice was.  All I can say is the...

Elisha Shaw = Ole Miss? C'Mon Man!! I am getting really tired of this sudden “Ole Miss is the greatest place on the history of the Planet and has the most storied football tradition ever and we are going to win National Championships attitude”.  I mean seriously, C'Mon Man!!  Historically, Ole Miss is nothing but a mediocre...

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...

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,...

HUGE Recruiting Visit for Dawgs This weekend the Dawgs had the #1 player in the state of Georgia and perhaps the #1 player in the Nation on campus, Lorenzo Carter.  Carter stated several weeks ago that Alabama and UGA are the only teams guaranteed to have a spot in his Top 5 when he releases that list.  That is great news for...

DELAY for Nick Chubb Originally Nick Chubb was supposed to announce where he would be playing his college football on at the end of last week.  However, then some complications arrived with his final official visit planned for South Carolina last Tuesday and made him push it back til Thursday.  Now having completed...

Tables Already Turning As CMONMAN has pointed out, this has not been an ideal week for Georgia football. That being said, fear not. I bring tidings of good news. I think that's how it goes. Josh Malone, top five player out of the state of TN is visiting UGA today and tomorrow with his family. We offered on the 14th of...

Bad Week For UGA - Great Week for Clemson This has been a rough week for the Dawgs and a great week for Clemson.  First, we find out that Harvey-Clemmons made a dumba$$ decision to smoke weed and now he is suspended for the opening game against Clemson.  Second, Korie Rogers, one of the top MLB prospects in Georgia commits to Clemson for...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Korie Rogers – Certainly overshadowed by the breaking news regarding Josh Harvey-Clemmons suspension is the fact that 4-Star linebacker from Buford, GA committed to the Clemson Tigers yesterday.  This is quite surprising that he pulled the trigger so quickly on the Tigers, but...

I Like Connor Norman but C’MON MAN!! The suspension of JHC for the Clemson game looms very large at this moment.  All have projected in the base defense that Tray Matthews would line up at Free Safety and JHC would be at Strong Safety opening weekend.  Then in the when UGA went to the nickel they would slide JHC down to cover the...

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...

Breaking BAMA! Alabama is a juggernaut.  There is no other way to put it right now.  They have the best head coach in college football, the best Strength & Conditioning program and the best recruiting.  I know there are teams that will beat the Tide every once in a while but like Texas A&M last season or LSU...

Good, Bad or INEVITABLE The major conversation at the SEC Meetings in Destin, FL will be regarding the possible move from an 8 game SEC schedule to a 9 game SEC schedule.  It is something that has been speculated about since the SEC decided on expansion with Missouri and Texas A&M.  There is some good, some bad that...

Incoming Freshmen Going BEAST MODE Johnny O'Neal, Mr. No Neck himself is going absolutely beast mode in the workout room getting ready for his arrival at UGA.  Johnny was listed at 6'2 230 pounds by a majority of recruiting services and now according to a variety of reports he has elevated his weight to 250!  I can't even begin to...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - 2014 MOCK Recruiting Class It is this time of year where I like to take a guess at who the Dawgs will end up with on Signing Day.  I consider it like a Mock NFL Draft but I call it a Mock Recruiting Class.  I will update it about once a month during the summer and then the updates will get closer and closer as Signing Day...

A DIFFICULT Decision There has been a lot made of UGA playing Florida State in the Chic-Fil-A Kickoff Classic in the Georgia Dome in 2016.  Some think it is a great idea and would love to see the game and others think it would be a terrible decision.  Honestly, it is very difficult for me to make up my mind on...

BREAKING Recruiting News Everywhere Keyon Brown – 6'3 240 OLB – UGA offered Keyon Brown in early March and now we are seeing it reported on Twitter that he has named UGA his leader.  It is very early in the process for him as this was his first true declaration of any sort regarding recruiting.  It is a long way to go but it is...

Dawgs REACHING OUT to Milan Richard? In a development that we had heard rumors swirling for the last few days, Ty Smith has decided to transfer from the University of Georgia and most likely to Georgia Military College.  While UGA has two proven commodities at tight end in Arthur Lynch and Jay Rome losing Smith certainly hurts their...

INSIDER Look at Sony Michel! Coach G was able to get some good information and analysis on Sony Michel from a friend of his in the Fort Lauderdale area.  He e-mailed me last week when he was on a fishing trip with his buddy of his that he met at the 1982 Howard Schnellenberger coaching clinic in Miami, FL who is a big time...

BIG TIME Under the Radar Visit In something that surprisingly went quite a bit under the radar this weekend was the Dawgs getting a visit from David Sharpe.  The 6'6 290 pound Left Tackle from Florida that many have classified as a strong lean to Florida was on campus in Athens for a visit.  With a prospect like Sharpe it is a...

Any IMPACT Players Arriving this Fall? The Dawgs had a huge group of early enrollee's in the Class of 2013, many of them potential impact players.  However, some there are several players who  the coaches are expecting to make an impact on the field this fall that are about to arrive in Athens in the next couple weeks.  Who are the 5...

A DIFFERENT Recruiting Year There is no qestion that the Bulldogs have some very talented group of upperclassmen heading into the 2013 Season.  The team is headlined by juniors and seniors - Aaron Murray, Malcolm Mitchell, Chris Burnette, Kenarious Gates, Garrison Smith, Amarlo Herrera and Damian Swann.  However, the...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update After 10 Days at Saint Simons and Saint Augustine for my wedding and honeymoon I am back!  It was a great time and as difficult as it was I was able to meet my wife's one request.  She said no computers/blogs for those 10 days which I think is a reasonable request.  So since we have been back and...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - MAJOR Recruiting Update Malkom Parrish - UGA was finally able to get Malkom Parrish on campus this weekend which was big for the Dawgs.  After his recent visit to Georgia Tech he had named the Yellow Jackets his leader.  They were recruiting him on the premise of playing him as an option QB.  I think that gave Malkom a...

Questions SURROUND Clemson I had the opportunity this weekend to speak with a friend of mine who is a diehard Clemson fan and follows every aspect of the football program.  I caught up with him this weekend and asked him his thoughts on Spring Practice and this is what he had to say:(1) What are your general...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Part II Part II continues with the theme of the competition between Georgia and Alabama on the recruiting trail in the 2014 Recruiting Class.  It has become a recurring theme because both teams do things very similary.  Both run a pro-style offense and both run the 3-4 defense.  Both teams want to run...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Part I It has long been said that imitation is the highest form of flattery.  There is no question that at this moment Alabama is the best program in all of college football and UGA is trying to follow the lead of the Tide.  I know that some UGA fans won't like that and will say the reason Alabama does...

Seriously, WHY Ole Miss? So I know this is a question that has been posed many times but I have to ask it again in light of recent events.  To preface what I am about to say, I have a sister who goes to Ole Miss and I have visited and it is a beautiful campus with great people.  But what I can't comprehend is how Ole...

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....

List of UGA Recruits Invited to The Opening! TE Jeb Blazevich - 6-5, 230 Charlotte (N.C.) ChristianDE Lorenzo Carter - 6-6, 235 Norcross, Ga.RB Nick Chubb - 5-11, 215 Cedartown, Ga.LB Rashaan Evans - 6-3, 215 - Auburn, Ala.LB Raekwon McMillan - 6-2, 249 - Hinesville (Ga.) Liberty Co.WR Artavis Scott - 5-10...

Another UGA & Ole Miss Recruiting BATTLE Sounds strange doesn't it?  In the crazy world of SEC recruiting it looks like the Bulldogs have another rival emerging.  For the past several years UGA has been locked in some intense recruiting battles with Alabama, Auburn and Florida but now it looks like Ole Miss is emerging as strong...

Different Approaches, Different Results in Recruiting The recruiting world in college athletics is a big business.  It has become the equivalent to the NFL Draft in amateur sports.  Take a moment and look at companies like Scout.com, Rivals.com and 247Sports.com whose primary source of traffic is to follow recruiting.  Obviously over recent years...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Jeb Blazevich - TE - 6'5 240 - Blazevich is rumored to have trimmed his list down to two primary schools we are hearing.  I am not entirely sure of who the two schools are but from what I have read about him it appears that Clemson, Georgia and Notre Dame are his favorites.  If I were to take a...

UGA Targets Star at Nike Camp I had the opportunity to speak with a friend that was present at the Nike Football Training Camp in Atlanta over the Weekend and he said there were several UGA prospects that he said really stood out.  Therefore, I wanted to give an update on what he had to say: Wesley Green – Simply...

Should UGA Switch to Oregon Style Offense? This season I think we are going to see a huge change in the way that UGA runs their offense.  This team has so many proven weapons on the offensive side of the ball including Chris Conley, Malcolm Mitchell, Michael Bennett, Rontavious Wooten, Arthur Lynch, Jay Rome, Todd Gurley and Keith...

Who Will COMMIT Next? With the 2014 Dawgs Recruiting Class they Bulldogs are off to a much slower start than in the Class of 2013.  Part of that is by design because the Dawgs have much fewer scholarships to give this year and the other part is they are recruiting a bunch of 4 & 5-Star prospects that have a bunch of...

DeShaun Watson or Tyler Queen? Deshaun Watson and Tyler Queen are the two best Quarterbacks in the state of Georgia.  Watson is heading into his senior season at Gainesville HS and is a household name.  At 6'4 205 pounds he has a very solid arm, good accuracy and has outstanding running ability.  Despite what many think he is...

Theus WILL Be Dawgs Left Tackle at Death Valley In the Dawgs 2nd Scrimmage of spring practice the coaches decided to make a switch along the offensive line and move John Theus out to left tackle as an experiment.  That experiment is looking more and more like it will be permanent.  Mark Beard has made strides but he is not shown the...

Dawgs v. Buckeyes in Pasadena This is something I never thought about but I will honestly admit this is my wildest dream when it comes to UGA football.  I work with a huge Ohio State fan that spends a majority of his time in the office on the "O-Zone" forum which is Ohio State's biggest fan forum out there right now....

Expectations TOO HIGH for Gurshall? Keith Marshall playing tailback at UGA is great for Todd Gurley.  Todd Gurley playing tailback at UGA is great for Keith Marshall.  It is a combination that has that exceeded every Dawg fans wildest dreams in 2012.  Halfway through spring practice expectations are sky high for Gurshall and have...

Dawgs Get MONSTER Commit! This afternoon the Dawgs got an unexpected early commitment from a young man who was likely their #1 target along the defensive line in the 2014 Recruiting Class.  Dontavius Russell is a young man who already has a body that looks college ready at 6'3 300 pounds and could likely play either DE or...

FINALLY Healthy and Ready to Make Impact Coming out of high school T.J. Stripling was rated as one of the Top 100 players in the nation by all of the major recruiting services.  His junior year in HS he had 14 sacks and as a senior he had 21 sacks.  There were incredibly high expectations when he arrived in Athens and during fall...

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...

Freshmen SHOW OUT on Defense Nothing like the first scrimmage of spring practice when you are going through football withdrawal and you would give anything to see some the boys put on the red and black.  Unfortunately with spring practice you only get to see the final scrimmage on G-Day but if this first scrimmage is any...

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...

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...

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...

The NEXT Jadeveon Clowney? During his senior season at South Pointe HS in Rock Hill, SC Jadeveon Clowney was a lanky 6'6 235 pound defensive end known for his explosivenes and freakish athleticism.  He also had the ideal frame to add weight up to around 275 pounds and not lose any of his explosiveness.  Three short years...

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...

Kentavious Street a PERFECT Fit! Those who closely follow UGA recruiting heard music to their ears over the weekend when 6'4 255 pound defensive end Kentavious Street said that UGA has been recruiting him very hard and if things keep going so way he could commit to the Dawgs in May.  Why is this such good news?  Street is...

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

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - 5 Predictions for Spring Practice (1) Jonathan Taylor EMERGES - Behind the scenes in Athens there was a lot of talk about Taylor last year when he was playing on the scout team.  He is a legit 6'4 335 pounds and is incredibly thickly built  for a guy that is only 19 years old.  He has the ideal thick lower body,...

ImYourHuckleberry - MONSTER Recruiting Update! 2014 Recruiting is in full swing now.  The Dawgs are hitting the road hard and are doing some very good things.  So I figured now it was time to do a big update on what the Dawgs are up to in trying to lay the foundation for an outstanding 2014 Class.QB Needs [0 or 1] - Offered [1]...

ImYourHuckleberry - Dawgs DRAFT Status AFTER Combine! (1) Jarvis Jones - H [6'2 3/8] W [245] - Heading into the NFL Combine there was some negative attention swirling around Jarvis Jones because NFL teams are rumored to be worried about his spinal stenosis and lack of "ideal" size.  While these are concerns, any NFL GM or scout should just turn on...

UGA Strength & Conditioning SHOWS OUT while Alabama's has TOUGH Day! Sunday was a great day for the UGA Strength & Conditioning program at the NFL Combine.  Tavarres King did not put up the eye popping 40-time that Austin and Goodwin put ran a 4.47 which is very solid.  He also put up nice numbers in the bench press, agility, and vertical drills.  Several...

How HARD Do You Push GURSHALL? Heading into spring practice the Dawgs have depth everywhere on the offensive side of the ball except at tailback.  UGA only has two scholarship tailbacks, Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall.  So that leaves the question how hard do you push Marshall and Gurley during spring practice?  My answer is...

UGA 2014 Recruiting - So Many GREAT Running Back's...How Many Spots?? In the 2013 Recruiting Class the Dawgs missed out on Alvin Kamara and signed A.J. Turman as the lone tailback in the class.  That has left the Bulldogs with only three true scholarship tailbacks on the roster heading into this season.  Therefore, it is crucial for the Todd Gurley and Keith...

IDEAL Post-Spring DEPTH CHART – Offense! Spring practice keeps getting closer and closer and in a time when you are going through football withdrawal it couldn't come at a better time.  What has me most excited for Spring Practice this year is to see how UGA decides to use all of the playmakers on the offensive side of the ball.  How...

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....

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...

In a SHOCKING Development.. Toby Johnson - 6'5 310 pound - DE/NG announced he will attend the University of Georgia!!  This is a huge for the Dawgs who need added depth on the defensive line and Johnson is more than just depth.  Before he tore his ACL he was ranked as the #1 JC player in the country.  After tearing his ACL...

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 - #1 - Johnathan Taylor - NG - 6'4 335 If you have not been fortunate enough to see Taylor up close and personal he is a monster of a young man.  At 6'4 335 pounds he actually looks slim.  He is very thickly built especially through the upper body but doesn't have the gut you typically see in a person his size.  In my opinion he has...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #2 - Tray Matthews - FS - 6'0 195 Putting a true freshmen as the #2 player of the most important spring camps?  Absolutely!  Tray Matthews is that important moving forward for the Bulldogs heading into the 2013 season.  For Grantham's defense to play up to it's potential he needs a reliable, ball-hawking free safety that will put...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #3 - Mark Beard - OT - 6'5 310 I put Mark Beard very high on the list because after the decision of Laremy Tunsil to attend Ole Miss, I believe he is UGA's best option to start at LT this season.  Coming out of JC he struggled early in the season but as the season moved forward he began to show the potential that UGA coaches...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #4 - Josh Harvey-Clemons - ATH - 6'5 220 Spring camp for Harvey-Clemons is very important because he is one of the best athletes on the UGA football team if not the best.  You don't find too many people at 6'5 220 pounds with his combination of speed, strength, agility, and length.  Depending on where he fills out in terms of weight he...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #5 - Sheldon Dawson - CB - 5'11 185 We have reached the Top 5!  These are the players that the Dawgs are relying on to have an excellent spring camp to prove that they are ready to be starters in the fall.  So without wasthing any more time lets get into the Top 5:Sheldon Dawson is a special talent in the mold of Brandon...

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 - #7 - Corey Moore - SS - 6'2 215 I have to be honest about Corey Moore, I was very disappointed with him last year.  When it was announced that Bacarri Rambo was going to be suspended for the first four games I wasn't too worried because I thought Corey Moore was going to be ready to step in.  Unfortuantely, that was not the...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #8 - Justin Scott-Wesley - WR - 5'11 217 When Justin Scott-Wesley decided to sign with the Georgia Bulldogs there was one thing that was immediately known among the Bulldog Nation - that kid can flat out fly.  We certainly weren't wrong about that.  In his time in Athens he has been a star on the track in the 60-meter and 100-meter dash...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #9 - Xzavier Ward - OT - 6'7 295 A lot of people saw the name Xzavier Ward and were probably thinking, is he serious?  My answer is yes.  If you remember, Xzavier Ward was a late addition to the 2011 Recruiting Class out of Moultrie, GA.  He was a long, lean, athletic offensive tackle prospects that had a lingering question on...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #10 - Chris Mayes - NG - 6'4 325 The Dawgs are very happy to have Chris Mayes on campus.  At 6'4 325 he is a big body that the Dawgs desperately need to emerge along the defensive front after the departure of John Jenkins, Kwame Geathers, and Abry Jones to the NFL.  Mayes does not have the size of a Geathers or Jenkins but he is...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #11 - Jonathan Rumph - WR - 6'5 215 Jonathan Rumph's signature was one of the biggest the Bulldogs were able to get on Signing Day.  At 6'5 215 pounds he will remind some of A.J. Green when they see him.  But Rumph is not A.J. Green, that type of player comes along once every 20 years.  Others will think he looks like Marlon Brown,...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #12 - Ryne Rankin - ILB - 6'1 230 Ryne Rankin joins Reggie Carter as the ILB's that were able to qualify and enroll early.  I have made no secret of the fact that I am a huge fan of Ryne Rankin. He is a flat out football player.  If you have any questions about that go on YouTube and watch the first 60 seconds of his film - you...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #13 - Josh Dawson - OLB - 6'4 250 There is nobody on the UGA roster that can replace Jarvis Jones.  Jones was a special talent that was simply the perfect fit for Todd Grantham's defense.  Jordan Jenkins will try to fill that role but the position opposite him is wide open.  Headed into fall camp the competition is wide open but...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #14 - Reggie Carter - ILB - 6'1 225 The Dawgs lost Mike Gilliard, Christian Robinson, and Alec Ogletree this offseason.  That is a lot of talent and experience to try to replace.  One of the players that will be depended upon to contribute is true freshmen Reggie Carter.As a junior, Carter was one of the highest rated...

Have we turned the table on Florida, but what about USC? For years, Florida has dominated Georgia on the football field, but the last two years have proved that we can hold out own with the mighty gators.  In previous years (before the two past years), I believe there was a psychological effect regarding our players didn't believe they could beat...

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...

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...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #18 - Blake Tibbs - WR - 6'2 175 The Dawgs have lost Tavarres King and Marlon Brown to the NFL and Michael Bennett will be coming off an ACL tear.  Therefore, they will need some of the young receivers on the roster to step up.  One of the young receivers that I am most excited to see get his turn on the field is Blake Tibbs....

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #19 - Christian Lemay - QB - 6'2 205 There is no doubting Christian Lemay's talent level at the quarterback position.  He has good size at 6'2, a strong arm, excellent accuracy and above average running ability.  However, in his two years in Athens he has had trouble getting a firm grasp on the offense.  In 2013 that led to him...

Top 20 Most Important Spring Camps - #20 - Greg Pyke - OG - 6'6 327 Offensive line is one of the posititions on the roster where the Bulldogs return every starter and a great deal of scholarship depth.  However, after this season the Bulldogs will likely be losing three guards (Gates, Burnette, Lee) to graduation.  Therefore it is very important for the Dawgs to...

Apparently Toby Johnson Was The Signing Day Surprise - Possibility He Might Be Able To Sign With UGA After All

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

It looks as if UGA is done with the 2013 recruiting class. 32 commits, 15 four star players, 16 three star players, one two star player, eight defensive backs, seven linebackers, three defensive linemen, three offensive linemen (four if Seymour makes it), one tight end, five wide receivers, one...

NSD Tracker- Davin Bellamy has informed Kipp Adams he is indeed going to sign with UGA. He adds great OLB depth. There's a reason Todd Grantham wanted him so badly.

NSD Tracker- Laremy Tunsil signs with Ole Miss as expected. He almost gave me a heart attack with his hat. It looks very similar to his UGA hat.

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...

Adeosun Would Be a STEAL for Dawgs Before you ask, NO, George Adeosun is not Laremy Tunsil.  At 6'6 305 pounds Adeosun has rocketed up the recruiting rankings from a 2-star prospect by most of the recruiting sites to a 3-star on ESPN and Scout and a 4-Star on 247Sports.On January 25th of this year he was a commitment to...

Foster PLAYED GAMES With Dawgs Last night, Reuben Foster committed to Alabama for the 2nd time.  Already committed to Alabama once, Auburn once, and now back to Alabama leaves many with the question - Did UGA ever really stand a chance with Foster?  I believe the answer to that is simple.  Foster played games with UGA and the...

Rusty Mansell confirms the rumors regarding MA eliminating UGA this morning are not true. Rusty did say that Auburn has apparently made a pretty strong move back into his decision. But most feel it is still a four team race currently. We'll find out Wednesday morning.

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...

I know Adams was at Auburn this weekend and have not heard how it went. There are rumors that he may have heard some of the argument that went on between Foster and another Auburn player. Regardless, I believe Adams is one of the high caliber players we have been talking about and is a must get for...

COMMIT! Brendan Douglas a GOOD Get for Dawgs I know how some of ya'll were feeling this morning.  Reeling from the news of Tunsil almost a done deal to Ole Miss and Dee Liner deciding not to visit the Dawgs.  A lot of wind was taken out of the Dawgs sails.   However, in the midst of all that bad news the Dawgs were able to steal...

Is Freeze GUILTY?? I have been around the recruitng game for a long time now and this is the first time I have every seen a coach come out and of all sources at his disposal, use Twitter to refute allegations that he is cheating to get all of these 5-star recruits.   In a remarkable turn of events in the...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - Departure of Garner HELPING Dawgs Recruiting The day after Rodney Garner (UGA's DL Coach/Recruiting Coordinator) decided to leave UGA to go back to his alma mater it had many Dawg fans worried.  It was at a critical point in recruiting and the Dawgs were just starting to gain momentum with two of their top targets - Montravius Adams and...

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...

Signing Day Drama Starts EARLY!! We all know that this Signing Day is going to be one of the most exciting in recent memory for the Dawgs. Most likely UGA will be waiting to here the decision of Reuben Foster, Matthew Thomas, Alvin Kamara, Davin Bellamy, Toby Johnson, Myles Jack, Montravius Adams,...

Dawgs Offer NEW Linebacker That Will Make You Say - REUBEN WHO??? I just got word that the Dawgs have offered another middle linebacker for the class of 2013.  His name is Myles Jack.  I admit I had never heard the name until about 7:00PM tonight when I got word that the Dawgs had offered him to play middle linebacker.  The reason...

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...

Foster Leaning "HEAVILY" to Auburn In a note that won't make many people in the Bulldog Nation happy, I have been told by a very reliable source that Reuben Foster is "heavily leaning" towards re-committing to Auburn.  According to my source, "Foster loves UGA and would really like to play...

ImYourHuckleberry - Davin Bellamy Pre-Visit PREDICTION Bellamy was one of my favorite defensive players to watch in the state this season.  At 6'5 240 he has the ideal size for the 3-4 outside linebacker in Todd Grantham's system.  As a matter of fact I believe he is the prototype of want Grantham prefers....

ImYourHucklebery - Reuben Foster Pre-Visit PREDICTION Foster's recruitment has been one of the wildest stories in the recruiting world this season.  He commits to Alabama, transfers to Auburn HS, decommits from Alabama, commits to Auburn, decomitts from Auburn.  When he decommitted from Auburn the list of...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - Alvin Kamara Pre-Vist PREDICTION I had seen Alvin Kamara play a couple games in his junior season and was impressed with his ability by I still had questions about his ability to be an elite SEC Tailback.  Then, I had the privilege of watching him on his run to a State Championship where he was an...

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...

BREAKOUT 2nd Year Players! The 2012 Recruiting Class saw several members make a huge IMPACT on the field.  Todd Gurley had 222 carries for 1385 yards and 17 TDs.  Keith Marshall had 117 carries for 759 yards and 8 TDs.  Jordan Jenkins had 31 tackles and 5 sacks.  John Theus emerged as a starter from Day 1 and was a...

Spurrier VISITING Dawg Commit Today Spurrier is trying to double down on Shaq Wiggins today.  Wiggins took his official visit to South Carolina this weekend and from a good friend of mine who is in the know with the Gamecocks said the visit was, "very good".  I asked him if he thinks that Wiggins is really considering the...

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,...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MstC-6SU5Qk New UGA fight Song. This oughta get you pumped for the trip to Pasadena next year. Makes fun of the other SEC schools as well. Sorry for the second post, first time the link didn't make it all the way through.

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

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...

Saddle up- Kwame is leaving and Tajh Boyd is coming back UGA and Clemson got some very important news regarding their 2013 season today. Georgia nose tackle Kwame Geathers has let everyone know he plans on keeping the Geathers tradition alive by foregoing his senior season and putting his name in the 2013 NFL Draft in April. On the same day, the...

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,...

SEC Champ game proves to be "Game of the year". Plus BCSNC analysis Analysis- I'll go ahead and cut to the chase. The 2013 BCS Championship game was terrible. Despite having a competetive look to most analysts and college football associates, it couldn't have been more of the opposite. From the very get go, Bama did what Bama wanted. The offense executed a...

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...

If UGA Doesn't SIGN Tunsil 2013 Recruiting Class is a FAILURE! Ok, I admit, maybe my words are a bit harsh.  This is not mean as an insult to Shaq Wiggins, Tray Matthews, Jonathan Rumph or any of the other players already committed.  Instead, it just speaks to the greatness of Laremy Tunsil and the amount of time they have put in recruiting Tunsil.  Also,...

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

UGA Run Defense an EASY Fix for Grantham After watching the UGA defense this season it has become apparent the primary source of their struggles on run defense.  I am sure Todd Grantham has seen the same thing I saw against Alabama and Nebraska.  The truth is, it is a relatively easy fix.  Grantham needs to look no further than to Nick...

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...

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...

Georgia's NEXT Recruiting Coordinator? The departure of Rodney Garner leaves a big hole in the Georgia staff when it comes to recruiting.  Garner had been in Athens for 14 seasons and a majority of that time he has been the head of recruiting for the Dawgs.  It will be very interesting to see how UGA chooses to take over this...

What Does Rodney Garner's Move to Auburn REALLY Mean? Rodney Garner is a good recruiter.  Rodney Garner is a good defensive line coach.  However, he was no longer a fit at Georgia.  He was ready for a change of scenery and it was time to move on.  I don't hold any hatred towards Garner for this move because he did what was best for him and his...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting Mailbag!! Good day everyone!  It is time for the last recruiting mailbag before Christmas!  While it is currently the "dead period" in terms of recruiting there is still a lot going on!  I am sure there are questions that you have with all of the information that is coming through the rumor mill about...

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...

Rodney Garner LEAVES UGA for Auburn In a not shocking development Rodney Garner has left UGA to go back to Auburn.  We will have more thoughts and perspective on this tomorrow morning.  Thank you Rodney for your years of loyal service to UGA and we here at DawgBark wish you nothing but the best...every weekend but 1. Go...

Nebraska Fans Begin SMACK Talk I haven't been giving too much thought to the Capital One Bowl because I have been paying more attention to recruiting.  However, that quickly changed when I visited some of their forums to see what they were saying about UGA.  Some fans were showing the Dawgs respect but there were also those...

Could UGA Add ANOTHER Cornerback? It appears that UGA is still recruiting a couple of cornerbacks for the Class of 2013.  The question is are the Bulldogs recruiting these players as a backup plan in case one of their current commits decides to flip or are they actively attempting to add another defensive back to this class?...

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...

Christmas Time Recruiting Prediction National Signing Day is right around the corner. Since I have some free time, I want to give my predictions for the rest of this class. I think we finish with 35 people most likely.I think we will get:1. Reuben Foster2. Laremy Tunsil3. Montravious Adams4. Toby...

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...

Tramel Terry an INSPIRATION!! Tramel Terry unfortunately experienced first hand what makes All-Star games dangerous.  Only weeks away from enrolling at UGA Tramel Terry got the opening kickoff and during the return he hurt his knee.  Yesterday on Twitter, Tramel Terry confirmed that it was a torn ACL as was expected.  While...

5-Star Linebacker Sets OFFICIAL Visit Matthew Thomas is a 6'3 205 pound outside linebacker from Booker T. Washington HS in Miami.  He is rated as a 5-star prospect because of his freak athleticism, incredibly long arms, and great potential.  When I was asked about Georgia chances with Matthew Thomas 6 days ago I said: "Chances...

Why Does Georgia NEED Reuben Foster? The answer is quick and simple.  The video below is the first play from scrimmage in the Alabama v. Mississippi All-Star Game: Foster reads the play and...

A Complete EMBARASSMENT! The Georgia basketball team this season is a complete embarassment.  The Bulldogs are now 2-7 on the season and their losses include teams like Youngstown State and Iona.  There is absolutely no reason Georgia should be fielding a basketball team that is this inept.  They are 309th in points per...

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...

Alabama's APPROACH to Recruiting Alvin Kamara I was talking to a good friend of mine who is a big Alabama fan and write's articles for Bleacher Report about Alabama recruiting.  I shot him an e-mail asking him about Alvin Kamara and how hard Alabama was recruiting him.  I knew they were still staying in contact but I figured with...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting Mailbag Good day everyone.  It is a rough time of the year right now without SEC football on Saturdays but at least the guys are back at practice and doing some serious work.  From what I am hearing out of Athens it was a real intense practice in full pads yesterday.  I think the coaches are trying to...

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...

Early Enrollees to DOMINATE Secondary Depth Chart We all know that UGA will be losing 4 senior defensive backs to graduation and the NFL after the Capital One Bowl.  They aren't just any 4 seniors, they are guys who started a ton of games for the Dawgs and were very reliable and had developed a great chemistry.  With those guys moving on the...

Bobo and Grantham FIGHTING Over Mitchell Again! There is no question that Malcom Mitchell is one of the best athletes on the Georgia football team.  He spent the first four games of the season at cornerback and looked like a natural at the position.  He was strong enough to play bump and run coverage against receivers.  He was quick enough to...

Ryne Rankin ALREADY a Damn Good Dawg! Today when I was on Twitter checking up on several of UGA's recruits I stumbled upon some very interesting tweets from Ryne Rankin.  His tweets were thanking the Semper Fi All-Star game for inviting him to participate but he had to decline the invitation.  The reason he declined is because he...

Brice Ramsey's UNLIMITED Potential - A MUST READ!! I had the opportunity to exchange several e-mail's with a colleague of mine that has seen Brice Ramsey up close and personal at Camden County over the last two seasons.  When he talks about Brice Ramsey and the things he has done on the football field you can feel the excitement jumping off the...

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 - MONSTER Recruiting Mailbag Update CMiddleton10742 - Heard chances are going up with Matthew Thomas.  Do you think we can get him? Chances are certainly going up with Thomas but I am not quite sold on the Dawgs chances at this moment.  I know that...

Tramel Terry STARS At Shrine Bowl Practice Yesterday was the first day of practice for the annual Shrine Bowl.  The Shrine Bowl is a yearly game held between North Carolina and South Carolina HS football All-Stars.  Last year the star of the game was UGA's own Todd Gurley.  Gurley was clearly the best player in practices last year and...

FINDING a Position for Josh Harvey-Clemons Heading into the 2013 season the Bulldogs will likely be losing a minimum of 10 players that received signifcant playing time on defense.  The hardest hit positions are inside linebacker and safety where the Dawgs will need to develop new impact players.  One of the candidates to fill in at one...

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...

Vol Fans MELTING Down The coaching search for Tennessee did not go anywhere close to the way they had hoped.  First, their were rumors flying around the Vol Nation that it was a lock that John Gruden would be their next head coach and they would quickly return to supremacy.  After several other big name candidates...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update! It was Gala Weekend in Athens which is always a big recruiting weekend for the Dawgs.  This season the Gala was a bit different than normal because there were very few uncommited prospects at the event because UGA already has so many players committed.  However it is a very important weekend for...

BIG Time Dawgs Recruit RAVES About Visit to Athens!

Any Questions About Aaron Murray are ALL GONE! Last night was one of the best nights of the year for the Bulldogs.  All of the players get their tuxes and find a date and head to the annual Senior Gala.  It is a time to celebrate and the bulldogs certainly had a lot to celebrate.  Regardless of what anyone says, 11-2 and SEC East Champions...

Multi-Year CONTRACT for Bobo After the 2011 season Bulldog fans were worried about Todd Grantham getting attention from other schools to be a college head coach or the NFL coming calling with a defensive coordinator job.  Greg McGarity and UGA acted quickly and locked Grantham up with a 3-year contract which is something...

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...

Does UGA Really WANT Reuben Foster? I am shocked!  Auburn made a responsible decision and decided that they needed to rid themselves of the walking NCAA violation, Trooper Taylor.  In a not surprising decision, Reuben Foster quickly decommitted from Auburn after Trooper was given his walking papers.  Now that Foster is back on the...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Laremy Tunsil - I saw some recent photos of Tunsil from his game just two weeks ago and I can't tell you what kind of athletic freak this young man is.  Recruiting services list him at 6'6 295 pounds.  The 6'6 is absolutely legit.  The 295 weight is a big underestimation in my...

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...

HUGE Official Visit for 5-Star Recruit Montravius Adams has confirmed that he will be in Athens this weekend for the Gala Awards Banquet.  If you have followed recruiting closely this is without question the biggest recruiting weekend of the year for the Bulldogs.  Nearly every UGA commit will be their either on an official or...

ImYourHuckleberry - MY All-SEC Team 1st Team Offense QB - Johnny Manziel - Texas A&M RB - Eddie Lacy - Alabama RB - Todd Gurley - Georgia WR - Cobi Hamilton - Arkansas WR - Justin Hunter - Tennessee TE - Jordan Reed - Florida OT - Luke Joeckel - Texas A&M OT -...

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

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

BCS Computers Should be SMASHED! After the final BCS Standings of the regular season were released I have come to one conclusion - I am going to find every single one of those computers and SMASH them.  UGA is ranked #5 in both the Harris Poll and the Coaches Poll.  However, in the computers they are ranked number 11, 10, 10,...

Shaq Wiggins to A&M? In a bit of a surprising development JaQuay Williams has decided to attend Texas A&M and play college football their instead of in Athens.  Many thought that Williams would either choose UGA or South Carolina (who he visited this weekend).  However, late last night he made an announcement that...

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...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update! Wow!! What a game!  I believe that was the most exciting UGA football game I have been to in 30 years.  It was truly incredible.  The momentum swings were huge and the Dawgs found a way to respond to adversity every time they were challenged.  If only there were 15 more seconds on the clock the...

UGA vs. Bama Discussion - Let's TALK Some SEC CHAMPIONSHIP Football!!

Want to COMPARE Bama and UGA’s Schedules? First, let me start by saying Bama's schedule was stronger than UGA's…but not by the amount that the media is making it out to be. I keep hearing about how “battle tested” the Tide is compared to the Dawgs. Stop it. Just stop it already. Both teams have played tough games and...

Just One of Those Kind of Games Every now and again you get the feeling that this is a game where Jarvis Jones is going to step up and be a one man wrecking crew.  The first time I felt it this season was against Missouri when it was trendy to pick Mizzou to upset the Bulldogs because UGA was missing 3 suspended starters.  The...

Dawgs Coaches Visiting Two 5-STAR Recruits Today Today UGA is making a grand gesture toward two 5-Star recruits.  The Bulldogs are sending Rodney Garner to go visit Montravius Adams and Will Friend to see Laremy Tunsil.  In a week leading up to a game of such importance it is rare for coaches to hit the road but it will certainly show Tunsil...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update This weekend the Dawgs face the Tide for the first time on the field since 2008.  However, in reality the Bulldogs have a face off with Alabama several times every year in recruiting.  The Dawgs have won some of those battles with Malcolm Mitchell and Jordan Jenkins, the Tide have won some with...

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...

Dawgs Nothing But "PAPER TALENT" Over on the Alabama boards and in the Alabama media there is a popular term they are using when referring to the Bulldogs.  They say the Dawgs are nothing but "Paper Talent" while Alabama is a "Championship Team".  In other words they are saying that the Dawgs look good on paper but when it...

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...

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...

Nothing to do with UGA...but why the hell would Les Miles even think about leaving LSU for Arkansas?

MAJOR Changes Coming in Spring Practice? I was reading Huck's recruiting update and that got me started thinking about spring practice.  Spring practice is going to look a lot different this season for the Bulldogs.  They will be losing a minimum of 15 contributing players to the NFL and graduation and will also be welcoming at least...

MUST READ!! The Enemy's Perspective When the matchup became official between UGA and Alabama in the SEC Championship game I immediately contacted a good friend who closely follows the Tide and asked him to write an article on the game.  He wrote an excellent article that I thought I would share with you today.  It is a...

3 Recruits Who COULD Decommit The UGA 2013 Recruiting Class has now reached 30 commits.  UGA could technically sign up to 36 players howeverI believe that is very unlikely because there are several current commits who I think could decommit over the coming months.  Below I will list the names and give my reasons.

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update The Math: This is going to get a little bit complicated but I will try to explain the numbers situation with the 2013 Recruiting Class so here we go.  In the 2012 Recruiting Class UGA had 17 players sign their LOI and enroll at UGA.  They counted 3 early enrollees...

Media BASHING Murray Aaron Murray for the 1st time in his 4 years in Athens asked to be relieved from his media duties this week.  One of the nicest guys on the Georgia team and always willing to spend time with the media decided it was best for himself and his team that he did not speak to the media.  What has the...

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...

The "Weak" Schedule Myth EXPOSED One thing I am already sick and tired of is hearing about how Alabama is "battle tested" this year and how the Dawg's aren't because of their "weak" schedule.  Every time I hear that all I can say is, seriously?  That argument makes absolutely no sense.  Out of conference this season...

Jaquay Williams Commit PREDICTION JaQuay Williams has officially de-committed from Auburn.  He is the first recruit to pull the trigger after the entire Auburn coaching staff was dismissed yesterday.  It now appears that his choice will come down to UGA or Texas A&M.  I'll outline what each school offers Williams below:

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Day Today The visitor list for today's game against Tech keep's getting more and more impressive.  Below is a list of the big names that are expected to be on campus this today.  It is an incredible group of players for the 2013 Class: (1) Reuben Foster (2) JaQuay Williams (3) Tramel...

Brendan Langley's INCREDIBLE 1st Game as UGA Commit In another great HS matchup Kell played Gainesville HS last night.  At the end of the night Gainesville and their star player Deshaun Watson (Clemson commit) proved too much for Kell but Brendan Langley had an unbelievable game. It started in the 1st quarter on Kell's first posession of...

Devondre Seymour DOMINATES Robert Nkiemdiche In a big upset in Georgia HS Football, North Gwinnett convincingly defeated Grayson.  Grayson has been billed all season long as one of the best HS football teams in the entire country.  They are lead by the #1 Overall Player in the Nation according to the major recruiting services,...

Why Murray Should WIN Heisman Over Manziel This is no knock on "Johnny Football", he is a hell of a football player.  However, no freshmen should win the Heisman unless it was extraordinary circumstances.  For example, if the Aggies were undefeated and going to the BCS Title game and Manziel had put up the same numbers I would probably...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. Georgia Tech Prediction Clean Old Fashioned Hate takes on extra significance this year.  Georgia Tech is ACC Coastal Division Champion and Georgia is SEC Eastern Division Champion.  While this game won't have any impact on their roll in the championship games it could determine the Dawg's fate as a potential BCS...

Recruiting Update - Is It INEVITABLE?? Tomorrow the Bulldogs are expecting to have Auburn commits JaQuay Williams and Reuben Foster in Athens for a visit.  Both players are currently committed to Auburn but are starting to be considered very soft commits.  The question is - Is it inevitable that they will decommit from Auburn and...

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...

Dawgs Add BIG TIME Cornerback Brendan Langley a 6'1 190 pound cornerback from Kell announced his decommitment from South Carolina today and immediately called the Georgia Bulldogs to commit to the Dawgs.  He has been a regular visitor on Georgia's campus this fall and is teammates with current UGA commit Quincy...

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...

Two Junior College Players to COMMIT Soon I have assumed for the last few months that the magic number for the Bulldogs in this recruiting class is 34.  That leaves the Dawgs with 7 spots remaining in this class.  It is possible that two of those positions will be filled by JC players over the next two...

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...

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...

UGA's Option CRUSHER! It always makes me very nervous when the Dawgs are getting ready to play a triple-option team.  The triple-option is the great neutralizer in all of sports because it allows teams with inferior talent to compete with superior teams.  This was evidenced by Georgia Southern's performance in the...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Part II The musical chairs of coaching has begun.  We have known for quite some time that Joker Phillips would not be returning at Kentucky and neither would John L. Smith at Arkansas.  However, another big shoe dropped yesterday with the announcement that Derek Dooley is out at Tennessee.  It is also...

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...

UGA's Most IMPROVED Player! This year the Bulldogs roster is full of players who have stepped up their games and made major improvements from last season.  Now that we are through 11 games this season there a several players that have elevated their games and could be considered the...

GREAT News from Shaq Wiggins If you don't follow the 247SportsStudio page on YouTube I highly recommend it.  Every now and again they will upload a video of a prospect that UGA is recruiting.  On Friday night they were able to speak to Shaq Wiggins and had he had some good things to say.  He talks about Florida, his 100%...

If you have visited our website over the past 6 weeks you have noticed we have made significant upgrades to enhance your experience.  I wanted to invite you to please take the opportunity to browse around the new and much improved DawgBark!!  We have added many new features that greatly improve...

Coaching Rumors Gone WILD! Tennessee's dismissal of Derek Dooley has set the SEC coaching carousel into high speed.  Auburn fans are angry that they haven't already fired Chizik because Tennessee is getting a head start on them and may already have a deal in place with the coach that they really want.  Arkansas and...

Reuben Foster ALL About Auburn FAMILY Rivals.com has a free video posted of an interview with Reuben Foster after his team won on a last second two-point conversion of McGill Toolen who was one of the best teams in the state.  The video itself may make UGA fans a little bit nauseous because you see Trooper Taylor jumping up...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Part I Montravius Adams - Two weeks ago their was a major shift in Adams recruitment when he and his mother were able to spend time with the UGA coaching staff and attend a game.  You have all heard how much Adams and his mother liked it in Georgia.  But what is a little bit surprising...

ESPN & Coaches Poll DISRESPECT Dawgs Why does this always happen?  I don't quite understand it.  Last week, UGA was #4 in the Coaches Poll and Alabama was #5.  UGA defeated Georgia Southern who was 8-2 on the season and co-champions of the Southern Conference.  Alabama played Western Carolina, also from the Southern Conference that...

State of Georgia Loaded at Key Position Next Year I have lived in Georgia and have worked for the Georgia High School Association for almost 35 years.  In all that time I have been lucky enough to travel across the state and go to a lot of football games and make some close friends at a lot of schools.  I have...

UGA Has A PROBLEM! I have watched a lot of UGA basketball over the years and this season the Dawgs may have one of the worst teams I have seen them put on the court.  Outside of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope they have nobody who can put the ball in the basket.  I know they are very young and have lost a lot the last...

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

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - Weekend Predictions #1 Kansas State v. Baylor - Baylor has a very explosive offense but their defense is absolutely terrible.  They have not been able to stop anyone so far this season.  Collin Klein and the Kansas State offense should put up huge numbers and their defense is good enough to stop...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update There is a lot of talk right now about the numbers for UGA's recruiting class because of Steven Nelson's decomittment.  There have been rumors floating around that UGA might have told him to look elsewhere but as far as we know that is not the case.  Nelson simply liked Oregon State and Texas...

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...

New OFFER From UGA This Weekend? This weekend UGA will be getting a visit from another Junior College CB, Riyadh Jones.  Jones is a name you may have heard mentioned over the last few weeks as someone who UGA could potentially offer.  With the decomittment of Steven Nelson from the Dawgs today it appears that Riyadh may get his...

Harvey-Clemons Position CHANGE! According to Todd Grantham Josh Harvey-Clemons began to get some reps at outside linebacker in practice today.  That is a very interesting move for him to make at this point in the season.  Thus far this season Harvey-Clemons has spent a majority of his time at the "star" position and at...

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...

Dawgs to Get COMMIT Tomorrow? A.J. Turman was recently in Athens for the UGA v. Ole Miss game and left Athens very impressed.  He stands in at 6'0 215 pounds and has the frame to add another 20 pounds at the college level without losing his speed.  He runs with great physicality and he is the...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update! After this weekends games the recruiting landscape appears to have made a big shift.  So buckle up and get ready for a huge update! Reuben Foster - Reuben Foster was on hand at Auburn for the game...

The MOST NFL Talent in the Country After the Ole Miss game Hugh Freeze said of the UGA defense, "I think they will have more kid drafted off that defense than any we've faced.  Their size and speed is pretty special".  It appears that he was telling the truth when you look at the reports of several...

These Dawgs a VERY Special TEAM! I am a straight shooter and call it like I see it when it comes to Georgia football.  That has gotten me into trouble from time-to-time with some of my readers but it's the only way I know how to be.  I was very critical of the team (players and coaches) after the South Carolina game but the way...

Alabama Has a HUGE Weakness I said last week that UGA can beat Alabama.  Texas A&M beat us to it.  They did it by exposing the biggest weakness on the Alabama football team that I wrote in my article last week.  Alabama has a serious deficiency with their pass defense.  It is not just one...

BIG Changes Coming to SEC This weekend appears to have sealed the fate of several SEC coaching staffs.  The Dawgs 38-0 dismantling of Auburn looks like it was the final nail in thecoffin of Gene Chizik's career at Auburn.  Players at Auburn had insisted...

Will the SEC be left out of the BCS National Championship? Do you think UGA will be left out if they win the SEC...but Bama WOULD go if they win due to the media's love for Bama?

Will any SEC schools hire someone from the UGA coaching staff?

UGA Coaches Visiting 5-Star Recruit Tonight I am hearing from sources out of Auburn High School that they are expecting a couple of UGA coaches to be on hand tonight to watch Reuben Foster play.  That is going to be an interesting dynamic given the fact that Trooper Taylor and Curtis Luper of Auburn will be...

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...

JaQuay Williams - UGA or Florida? With news breaking that Auburn president Jay Gogue is preparing the Board of Trustees for the possibility of firing Gene Chizik the rumors today became red hot about Jaquay Williams.  Last season his recruitment came down to UGA and Auburn and he made a last minute choice to remain firm on his...

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...

UGA is Getting ROMNEY'ed by Media It all started when UGA finished the season in 2007 as clearly the best team in the country.  However, they were shut out of the SEC Championship because of ESPN and the rest of the media said, "If you don't win your own conference, you should never be allowed to play for the National Title"....

Gurley Playing Through INJURY Through nine games this season Todd Gurley has 138 carries for 857 yards and 10 TD's.  That is an average of 95.2 yards per game for a true freshmen in the SEC playing behind a relatively inexperienced offensive line.  However, with his bruising running style some nagging injuries are beginning...

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...

Prized UGA Recruit Suffers SERIOUS Injury Prized UGA recruit Toby Johnson has reportedly tore his ACL and MCL.  The 6'5 310 pound defensive end is one of UGA's top remaining targets on their board and was supposed to enroll early at a school of his choosing so that he could se the field as soon as possible.  UGA is expected to honor his...

Yes, UGA Can BEAT Alabama!! After the Dawgs beat the Gators at the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party my mind instantly started wandering toward a potential SEC Championship matchup against Alabama.  Then, I quickly reminded myself we have to beat Ole Miss and Auburn first.  After we routed the Rebels on Saturday, I...

Who Will Step Up After DEVASTATING Injury In this weekend's game against Ole Miss the Dawgs suffered another big injury in their receiving core.  Marlon Brown who was having a breakout senior season tore his ACL which has put an end to his UGA career.  The 6'5 225 pound receiver was UGA's best run blocking receiver and was also...

Recruit to FLIP from Gamecocks to UGA? Brendan Langley made his 3rd visit to Athens in the last 6 weeks.  That is an unusual number of visits for someone who is committed to another school, in this case South Carolina.  It appears that Langley's flirtation with UGA is hitting a high note and the UGA coaches are trying to hard to add...

Tramel Terry ALL Dawg? Tramel Terry made his scheduled visit to UGA this weekend as was expected and it was a great visit.  Tramel arrived in Athens on Saturday before the game and was able to spend time with the coaching staff and a bunch of other UGA commits and prospects.  From everything we have heard it was an...

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...

Does Auburn Have ANY Shot? This weekend the Dawgs will be making the trip down to Auburn, Alabama to take on the 2-7 Tigers.  UGA is hoping that they can win their 7th and final SEC game of the season.  Auburn is still looking for their 1st SEC victory of the season.  UGA is hoping to secure a spot in the SEC Championship...

These DAWGS Stepped Up! Players of the Game for UGA v. Ole Miss Aaron Murray - Muray rebounded from a poor performance against Florida in a big way against Ole Miss.  He was constantly under pressure...

It Sure as HELL Wasn't PRETTY but it was a WIN!! The Dawgs showed up with intensity and effort from the start in this game but they couldn't get anything going.  The undersized Ole Miss defensive line was giving the UGA offensive line hell.  Constantly getting in the backfield on UGA's running backs and Aaron...

Can the Dawgs SURVIVE + Gameday Discussion

UGA v. Ole Miss Gameday Discussion - Let's TALK Some Football!!

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...

Leaving EARLY for NFL? On ESPN this week they were talking about the Top Junior's in the country that are eligible for the NFL Draft and not surprisingly there were several UGA players that made that list.  So who were some of the players they were talking about? 1) Jarvis Jones - Jarvis Jones is a junior and...

UGA Loading Up on Early Enrollees I read the "discussion" response of ImYourHuckleberry to the topic posted by Pitbull (http://www.dawgbark.net/discussions/our-scholarship-limit-is-25-plus-1475.html) and I did not realize that UGA had so...

Recruiting Gone Wild! Recruiting in college football is getting absolutely out of control.  I am watching all of these recruiting saga's play out across the country, especially in the SEC, and it is getting absolutey ridiculous.  Let me just lay a few scenarios out there for what is...

Official UGA v. Ole Miss Prediction Discussion! Give us YOUR Prediction Here!

Don't Get Your HOPES Up! Message boards started buzzing today when Robert Nkiemdiche posted his recruiting blog about his upcoming trip to UGA this weekend.  In that blog Nkiemdiche said, "With Georgia, you never know what could happen.  I could start falling in love witht hem again after I visit.  They have open arms...

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 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...

Georgia's NEXT Great Middle Linebacker? This year UGA's class is loaded with future inside linebackers for the Bulldogs.  The names everyone seems to focus on are Tim Kimbrough, Ryne Rankin, and Reggie Carter because they are all considered 4-star prospects.  However, the best of the bunch may be the lowest ranked of all of the...

Dawgs on VERGE of Losing Commit? In good news for the Dawgs, Tramel Terry will be in Athens this weekend when the Bulldogs face the Ole Miss Rebels.  The bad news for the Bulldogs is that the following weekend he will be back at Clemson for a visit when they play Maryland.  In what is unexpectedly becoming a heated...

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,...

Georgia's TOP 10 Underclassmen There is a lot being made of the fact that UGA is a veteran football this season.  However, they have quite a few underclassmen who are big contributors this season.  I wanted to put together a list of the top underclassmen in Athens that will be a major reason for this teams continued success...

Mitchell NEEDS to Mature! Malcom Mitchell is without a doubt one of the most talented players on the Georgia football team.  He is fast, he is quick, and suprisingly strong.  He is also one of the most versatile players on the Georgia team with his ability to return kickoffs, return punts, play receiver, and play...

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...

Dawg's READY for Oregon of the SEC? This weekend the Bulldogs will be facing Ole Miss and their new head coach Hugh Freeze for the 1st time.  This will be a much different Ole Miss football team than the one the Bulldogs ran roughshot over in Oxford last season.  Coach Freeze has them playing a new style of football and with a...

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...

What UGA Victory Left You Feeling MOST Satisfied?

DAMN This Feels GOOD!!! I am a lifelong Bulldog fan and I can't recall a moment this satisfying since the UGA defeated big bad Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl in January of '81.  Yes we have had some great moments since then including big wins over Auburn, Alabama, Clemson, LSU and Florida...

Your Bulldog Trivia For Today... In 2011, UGA was an underdog going into 4 games: Boise St., USC(e), LSU (SECCG), and Michigan St. (Outback Bowl)... All resulting in losses. in 2012 UGA was underdog to USC(e), another loss, and Florida, in which UGA was finally able to pull off the upset! Question is, before Florida,...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update!! Laremy Tunsil - Coach Will Friend and John Lilly went to Lake City, FL to see Laremy Tunsil play on Friday before the Florida game.  Laremy had a very impressive game and the coaches walked away impressed...

He FINALLY Stepped UP! Tonight we finally saw the Cornelius Washington we were hoping to see all season long.  He was playing as a 3-4 defensive end and an outside linebacker.  He also lined up on the inside when UGA went to only 2 down lineman in the nickel formation.  Regardless of...

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...

This is a BIG DEAL!! Ladies and gentlemen this is a big deal!  Your Georgia Bulldogs just beat the #2 team in the country, beat Florida for the 2nd consecutive time (for the first time in since Vince Dooley's final season), and control their destiny for a return trip to Atlanta.  Also,...

Florida Can’t Shut Their Big “Traps” I've been busy living the life down here in St. Simons, trying to unwind a bit before I have to deal with the much hated Gators. Because of this, maybe I am a little out of touch when I sign in to my laptop and find that these pesky lizards decided to take a full page advertisement out to...

SMOKING With the Honey Badger Tyran Mathieu has gone from Heisman finalist to cautionary tale in less than a year.  Last season Mathieu was one of the most feared players in all of college football.  Before the season even started he was kicked off the LSU team for multiple drug related...

Can Dawgs Really Play GROWN MAN Football? It is no secret what Florida wants to do - They want to run the ball and pound their opponents into submission.  On defense they want to stop the run and create turnovers.  The question this weekend is, "Georgia are you man enough to play grown man football."

Dawgs Get A Rare Second Chance

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...

Official UGA v. Florida Prediction Discussion!

This is a Game for the J.J.'s If Georgia is going to beat Florida this weekend there are several players that need to play big games for the defense to be successful.  When I was listing those players I realized that all of their names had the initials JJ.  So let's take a quick look at some of the key players on...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - Florida v. Georgia Prediction Winds of change will be sweeping through Jacksonville this weekend as Hurricane Sandy churns off the coast.  Depending on what news you watch down here you will get a different forecast.  Some say 80 degrees with a 20 mph wind and 10% chance of rain.  Then you go to the next channel and it says...

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...

Does HURRICANE Favor Dawgs or Gators? Churning down in the Carribean right now is a storm called Sandy.  Sandy is likely to turn into a Hurricane and be churning off the coast of Florida while the Dawgs and Gators are teeing it up.  The weather forecast is for 78 degrees, 25 mph winds, and intermittent heavy downpours.  So who would...

A Sleeping GIANT Awakened? By now everyone has heard Shawn Williams quotes following UGA's practice on Monday when he called out the defense for being soft and playing without any emotion.  Today we heard the coaches and even the athletic director give their thoughts on what Williams said.  Basically they all said Shawn...

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...

BIG TIME Recruiting Visit The UGA coaches are taking advantage of their game this weekend in Jacksonville against the Florida Gators to spend a little time on the recruiting trail.  Columbia HS in Lake City, FL is only about 60 miles west of Jacksonville and is the home of 5-star offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil.  Most...

EXCITING News UGA Fans!!!! Good morning/afternoon/evening to everyone!  I wanted to invite you to please take the opportunity to browse around the new and much improved DawgBark!!  We have added many new features that greatly improve the site and would greatly appreciate you taking some of your time to browse around the...

He Might Have SAVED Georgia's Season! Shawn Williams, one of my favorite Bulldogs on this team stood up and spoke out.  "We're playing to soft as a defense," Williams said.  He went even further to call out every position on the defense saying they aren't playing with the same attitude as last season.  Williams went on to...

So You're Telling Me There's a CHANCE!?!?! The odds are certainly against Georgia this weekend.  Florida is 8-0 and has been on a roll winning games over LSU and Florida convincingly over the next few weeks.  Their defense has been dominant and their special teams have been strong.  That is a recipe for success in the SEC.  The question...

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...

IN-DEPTH Look at 2013 SEC Schedules!! Today the 2013 SEC Football Schedule's were released.  Let's not waste any time with small talk and get right into it with the a look at UGA's finalized 2013 Schedule: 8/31/13 @ Clemson - This will be a difficult opening game for the Dawgs on the road...

UGA v. Kentucky Prediction & Other Games of Interest #3 Oregon @ Arizona State - This is actually an interesting game tonight.  Arizona State has been a pretty big surprise even though their schedule has been relatively weak.  It will be a lot of fun to see how Oregon does against a relatively stingy Arizona State defense and and...

UGA Still Does NOT Run This State I posted a blog with the same title about a month ago but as recruiting continues to go on I get more and more disappointed with the way UGA is recruiting in the state of Georgia.  Just look at the top players in the state of Georgia and where they will be attending college next year.

He Shouldn’t Even Have on a Uniform this Weekend! As of Wednesday afternoon's practice Jarvis Jones has still not practiced since the game against South Carolina.  As you all know Jarvis has been struggling with a groin injury all season that has already caused him to miss one game.  Now, on top of that groin injury, Jarvis is struggling with a...

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...

Will the Dawgs SIGN Big Time WR? Jonathan Rumph is a protypical big play receiver and he is one of the most important players left on the Dawgs recruiting board.  At 6'5 215 pounds, Rumph is reported to run a 4.46 40-yard dash and have a 36-inch vertical jump.  Those are the type of measurables that have the UGA coaches and...

Ex-Bulldog’s Stock is Soaring in Recruiting Circles Who remembers Nick Marshall?  I certainly do.  Nick Marshall was one of the most highly sought after recruits in the southeast coming out of Wilcox Co. HS in Rochelle, GA before he was kicked off the team for theft.  At UGA the coaches loved his potential at cornerback and thought he could...

Dawgs Aggresively Recruiting Offensive Lineman for 2013 In the South Carolina game the Dawgs weaknesses along the offensive line were exposed for everyone to see.  Most evident was that the Dawgs have a guard, Kenarious Gates, playing out of position at left tackle.  There are very few if any left tackles in college football that can block Jadeveon...

Receiver Looking to FIND Last Year’s Success This off week could not have come at a better time for this UGA team.  It also came at the perfect time for UGA's Mr. Everything, Malcolm Mitchell.  The last two weeks Mitchell has been attempting to make the shift back to WR on the fly.  Now with the off week he has had additional time to get...

Cornelius Washington Falling Out of Favor? I tortured myself another time by rewatching the UGA v. USC game and I noticed in the 2nd Half you hardly saw Cornelius Washington on the field.  In the first half I saw a lot of Washington either at DE or OLB but in the 2nd Half he was replaced by Jordan Jenkins at OLB and Garrison Smith at...

Can the Dawgs MAKE the Tournament this Year? I know it is still football season but basketball practice began across the country this weekend.  You have the typical teams at the top with Indiana, UCLA, Duke, North Carolina, NC State, Louisville, Ohio State, Kansas, Arizona, and Kentucky but then there appears to be a significant drop of...

I Like Rhett McGowan but SERIOUSLY.... Are you seriously telling me that with all of the athletes we have on this team we don't have a better option of someone who can return a punt?  I know we have experimented with Malcolm Mitchell and he made some lousy decisions that probably warranted him losing that job.  But what about Damian...

Why Can’t the Dawgs Pressure the QB? I Know! Coming into this season the UGA defense was expected to be able to harass opposing QB's with Jarvis Jones and Cornelius Washington on the edge and John Jenkins getting a push up the middle.  Through 6 games that has not turned out to be the case.  Halfway through the season UGA has 4 players who...

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...

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...

SELFISHNESS Hurting Dawgs Defense! If you look at ESPN's Scouts Inc. Top 32 players UGA has four players in the Top 32.  Jarvis Jones is #1, John Jenkins is #7, Alec Ogletree is #10, and Shawn Williams is #27.  So how can a defense that supposedly has 3 of the Top 10 players for next years NFL Draft and 4 players in the Top 32...

Dawgs 2013 Class Is Solid, But Are There ANY Difference Makers? Most recruiting services mention UGA's 2013 recruiting class ranked amongst the Top 10 in the nation.  It is certainly a collection of solid players, which UGA seems to get every year, but are there any difference makers that can make an immediate impact and become an ALL-SEC type player.  I...

Kentucky Game WILL Tell the Tale It is time for the Dawgs team, coaches, and fans to move on from the South Carolina game.  This Saturday at 7:00PM the Dawgs will ge that chance after a bye week that could not have come at a better time.  The Dawgs players and coaches need to take this opportunity to move past the South...

Dawgs to Add #1 Prep Player in the Nation! Coming out of Dodge Country HS last season Leonard Floyd was known as one of the best athletes in the state of Georgia.  Standing in at 6'5 215 pounds UGA coaches recruited him to come in and play outside linebacker in the 3-4 defense.  Unfortunately for UGA, the NCAA Clearinghouse would not...

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...

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...

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 II - Tailbacks Since we have a bye week this week I am going to go through the roster position-by-position and analyze what it will take for the Dawgs to reach the next level.  Can it be fixed this season?  Are we recruiting properly to address the need?  I will attempt to answer these questions and more.

My Thoughts From the USCe Game First of all I want to say whoever egged Christian Robinson, Arthur Lynch, and Aaron Murray's house is out of line. It makes the entire Bulldawg nation look bad to recruits, to other team's fans, and our own players. Also please keep the Murray in your prayers because his dad has cancer. That...

Grow Up Dawg "FANS" As upset as I was with the Dawgs performance against South Carolina there is no excuse for the behavior of the UGA "fans" who egged and rolled Christian Robinson and Aaron Murray's house after the loss.  I am more angry about hearing that than I could ever be about UGA losing a football game....

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...

WEAK Link on Offensive Line Exposed This weekend we found out that against an elite defensive line the UGA offensive line is still a liability.  Particularly, the left tackle position with Kenarious Gates.  I am not a big fan of calling out players but Kenarious Gates has no business playing LT in the SEC.  Jadeveon Clowney...

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,...

Dawgs Get the Kiss of Death? I don't know how many of you were up last night watching the PAC-12 game between Southern Cal and Utah but when halftime came it was time for Mark May and Brian Griese's predictions on the UGA v. South Carolina game.  First up was Mark May - May said he thinks that in a game like this the team...

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 You Little Whiny Little...... I'll let you finish the sentence after you read this.  Before the season everyone knows that Spurrier was doing a lot of whining and complaining about their schedule in comparison to Georgia's.  He was upset that they had to play LSU and Arkansas out of the SEC West while UGA only played Auburn...

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.

Can Dawgs SURVIVE Loss of Michael Bennett? Make no mistake about it, losing Michael Bennett is a big blow to the Dawgs offense.  Not only is he the leading receiver on the team with 24 receptions for 345 yards but he is also the most tenacious downfield blocker.  He brings a physicality, attitude, and effort that made this group one of...

If UGA Loses This Matchup They WILL Lose THIS Weekend This weekend when the Bulldogs travel to Columbia there are a lot of important matchups across the field for both teams.  You have the South Carolina cornerbacks against the Georgia wide receivers.  You have the UGA inside linebackers having to tackle Marcus Lattimore.  You have the South...

More SMACK Talk Coming Out of Columbia Over on the Cockytalk forum things are getting a little bit heated and it is only Thursday!  Some of it is just clean fun and some of it is being taken too far in my opinion.  I will say even some of the South Carolina fans are saying that things are being taken to far.  But reading these...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA v. South Carolina Prediction #5 Georgia at #6 South Carolina - Finally the game that you have been waiting for.  This is a huge game for both teams, that neither can afford to lose and hope to get to the SEC Championship game.  The Dawgs offense has been powerful...

ImYourHuckleberry - Weekend Predictions #13 Southern Cal at Utah - There are ESPN pundits trying to say that Utah has a legitimate chance to upset Southern Cal at home tonight.  I am not falling for that trick because Utah has one of the worst offenses I have seen in recent memory.  They cannot run or throw the ball...

ImYourHuckleberry - Power Rankings (16) Texas Christian - TCU has questions on both sides of the ball but they are just a well coached football team.  They are fundamentally sound and are not going to beat themselves which is more than you can say for a lot of teams this year. (15) Clemson...

Gamecocks Pulling Out the BIG GUNS for UGA We all know how crazy the environment is going to be in Columbia for the UGA game this weekend and the Gamecock administration and athletic department is doing everything they can to make sure that it is wild.  I'll give you a quick rundown. (1) Billy Currington is holding a concert...

Dawgs Mismanaging ANOTHER 5-Star Recruit? All Dawg fans remember that Richard Samuel was once considered a can't miss 5-star prospect.  Coming out of HS people said he could play either RB or LB on the college level.  The Dawgs recruited him as a RB and he started his career as such.  Since that point, Samuel has gone from RB to LB and...

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...

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...

UGA’s HUGE NEW Weapons Early in the season UGA fans were wondering what had happened to the tight ends.  They had become so used to Orson Charles and Aron White who were primarily pass catching tight ends being very involved in the offense.  This year the Dawgs have some HUGE NEW weapons that are starting to find...

Bobo’s UNSTOPPABLE Gameplan Having watched all five of South Carolina's games this season I think that the gameplan that Mike Bobo has used so far this season will be excellent against the South Carolina defense.  Why do I say that?  I list my reasons below: (1)  Run to Set up the Pass - In...

You Ready to Get Hyped!!! Lat night when I was watching Monday night football this promo came on for the UGA v. USC game.  The blood started coursing through my veins and I go so hyped I had to turn on the battle hymn and let out a few barks!!  I am so pumped for this game!! GO DAWGS!!

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...

Herrera’s NEW Position Caused Some of UGA’s Struggles v. Tennessee When Alec Ogletree regained eligibility and was able to return to the field on Saturday afternoon against Tennessee many were speculating that Amarlo Herrera would be relegated back to the bench subbing in for Ogletree on occasion.  However, that was not the case, Amarlo Herrera shifted over to...

ImYourHuckleberry - SEC East Power Rankings (7) Kentucky - The Wildcats put up a fight early in the game against the Gamecocks but got steamrolled in the second half.  The Wildcats lack depth along their entire roster and don't have any real playmakers.  They will be lucky to win an SEC game this season.

What’s WRONG with Grantham’s D? Coming into this season the Dawgs were supposed to be riding a stout defense that would allow a young offense to mature and round into form.  Through five games this season it has been quite the opposite.  The Dawgs offense has been a juggernaut and the defense has looked like swiss cheese at...

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...

ESPN Article Shows Dawgs ULTIMATE Disrespect! After this weekend's performance against Tennessee the ESPN talking heads are lining up to take shots at UGA. On Sunday morning after the Dawgs defeated the Vols ESPN's headline was "Georgia Survives". After Ohio State defeated an inept Michigan State team, ESPN says Ohio State is "Perfectly,...

Cock Fans Feeling COCKY As usual before a big game I like to go onto the other teams forums and read what the fans are saying and the Gamecock fans are feeling very good about their team and their chances on Saturday night.  Let me give you just a little sample: The big game autmosphere isn't going to...

Murray’s Big Chance to Shed DEMONS Nobody can question Aaron Murray's ability as a quarterback anymore.  He has proven complete mastery of the UGA offense and an ability to check the team in-and-out of the right plays at the line of scrimmage.  He is one of the best QB's in the country at reading the coverage of the defense...

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 - Offense Grades v. Tennessee Quarterback - B - Aaron Murray played a good game and made some very important throws but he also committed two turnovers that led to 14 points for the Vols.  He needs to do a better job of respecting the football like he had done through the first four games of the season.

Dawgs Pull Out Red Carpet for SPECIAL Recruit About 5 minutes before the Dawgs headed into the locker room after pregame warmups you may have noticed Todd Grantham standing at the 35 yard line talking to a massive kid in street clothes.  That monster was 5-star recruit Montravius Adams, who in my opinion is the best high school player in...

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...

Defense OPTIONAL in Athens Last night in Athens the Dawgs and Vols combined for 1038 yards of offense and 95 points.  A shootout that is more common in the Big 12 than in the SEC. It left Dawg fans walking out the stadium shaking their heads, happy with a win, but wondering what has happened to what was supposed to be a...

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...

SEC Coach RAVES About Dawgs Offense Chris Low posted an article on ESPN about what Vanderbilt Head Coach James Franklin had to say about UGA after they faced off against the Dawgs this past saturday.  Here are some of Franklin's quotes: “They're probably one of the most balanced teams we have played here in the...

ImYourHuckleberry - UPDATED Weekend Recruiting List Yesterday morning at about 7:45 I posted a list of players that I had been able to put together who were coming to Athens this weekend for the UGA v. Tennessee game.  I worked on getting the names of more visitors over the last 24 hours and I have added their names to this list in red.  The...

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...

This Game is SPECIAL for One Dawg In HS Marlon Brown was a 6'5 205 can't miss 5-star player.  Coming out of Harding Academy in Memphis, TN his decision came down to UGA and Tennessee.  In Memphis there was a lot of pressure to go Knoxville and join the Vols but when it came to Signing Day, Marlon innked with the Georgia...

INCREDIBLE Group of Recruits Coming to UGA Saturday As of the right now these are the names that I have heard are likely to visit Athens this weekend for the UGA v. Tennessee game.  As I stated on Monday, this is the final game for UGA at home until homecoming at Ole Miss which is over a month away.  There will probably be even more players that...

Ray Drew’s Chance Before this season I wrote an article titled, "Ray Drew - Boom or Bust in 2012".  While it would certainly be unfair to label him as a bust on this young season he certainly has not had the impact that many had thought or hoped for.  He is stuck on the depth chart at defensive end behind Abry...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting, A Glimpse Into the FUTURE Last week I wrote two blogs focusing on the players that are already committed to UGA for the Class of 2013 and provided updates on how their senior season's are progressing.  Today, I am going to take a little look into the future at UGA's recruiting for the Class of 2014 because UGA has...

Does UGA Have MORE Potential Than Alabama? After the LSU performance against Auburn and UGA's performance against Vanderbilt there are grumblings that UGA may be emerging as the 2nd best team in the SEC this season.  A lot will be determined by the next two weeks when UGA faces Tennessee and South Carolina while LSU will take a road trip...

ImYourHuckleberry - Week #4 SEC Bowl Projections BCS Championship Game - Alabama v. Oregon - At this moment Alabama is the best team in the nation and Oregon may be the most explosive. I don't see any real roadblocks in Oregon's way at this moment because USC and Stanford just don't match up with their speed and...

The VolNation Abandoning Ship! We all know how much pressure Derek Dooley is under to win this game.  The Tennessee players, especially Tyler Bray, moped around and looked defeated in the 4th Quarter against Florida.  It looks like he could be on the verge of losing this team and loss to UGA could push that sends them over...

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...

Good Player’s Headed to the BENCH With the return of Alec Ogletree and Bacarri Rambo what is largely being lost is the impact on two UGA players that have been excellent in their absence. First, up is Amarlo Herrera.  While Ogletree has been suspended Amarlo Herrera has stepped up and emerged as one of the best...

UGA - "We’re Back!" After the 48-3 dismantling of Vanderbilt in Athens this weekend the Georgia Bulldogs made a statement to the rest of the SEC.  "We're Back!!"  That was the most dominant performance and complete victory by a UGA football team since the 2008 Sugar Bowl v. Hawaii.  Yes, I know UGA has had some...

Just Think...There Was Talk of Playing HIM at Safety!! I was going back looking at some articles from the offseason from various websites and in the summer months there were multiple reporters and "insiders" talking about the potential that Todd Gurley would play safety his freshmen year because he played it some in HS and UGA's lack of depth at the...

What You Need to Understand About Malcom Mitchell Situation Huck wrote a blog earlier today asking the question of whether or not Malcolm Mitchell would be the #1 receiver for UGA if he was converted back to offense full time.  My response was too long for the comment section so just hear me out.  There is no doubt in my mind that Mitchell would...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Weekend v. Tennessee When the Volunteers come to town Saturday afternoon there is more on the line than just a football game, it is also a HUGE recruiting weekend.  This will be the last time UGA can host a recruit for a gameday visit for over 30 days because of the upcoming road schedule.  With that said we are...

Gamecock Fans READY for UGA and ... College Gameday.  On the CockyTalk forum that has been a major topic of discussion and it would further charge up what will already be an electric environment.  First things first, in order to get Gameday in Columbia both UGA and South Carolina need one more victory.  That would set up a matchup...

Richt Dragging UGA Name Through the Mud? As everyone hear knows Bacarri Rambo and Alec Ogletree have been suspended for the first four games of the season.  Through that time I cannot tell you how many stories I have read across the web from multiple news outlets about the suspensions.  Every day of the week it has been a topic of...

Is Malcolm Mitchell Still UGA’s BEST Receiver? If you take a quick glance at the UGA receiving depth chart you would think, those are some solid players but there are no stars.  However, the stats thus far would disagree with you.  UGA has 3 of the top 10 receivers in the SEC.  Michael Bennett is 6th in the SEC with 19 catches for 275 yards...

Will Tree & Rambo Really Help? While the coaches are officially still taking the wait and see approach with the fans and media with regards to the status of Alec Ogletree and Bacarri Rambo, they will be on the field Saturday afternoon at 3:30 when UGA takes on Tennessee.  We all know how talented these players...

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 v. Vanderbilt Grades Quarterbacks (A+] - Aaron Murray appears to be turning the corner and becoming an elite college football quarterback.  In UGA's last two games he is completing 75% of his passes for 592 yards while throwing 4 TD's and 0 INT's.  He was surgical against Vanderbilt completing his...

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 - Week 4 Predictions #2 LSU v. Auburn - LSU has a dominant defense and Auburn has no offense.  Auburn cannot stop the run and LSU has one of the best running games in the nation.  No need for further analysis.  LSU 45 - Auburn 3.

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - MASSIVE Recruiting Update Part 2 This is Part 2 of today's MASSIVE recruiting update.  A couple hours ago I posted a blog that focused on the offensive players that are already committed to UGA and their senior seasons.  In Part 2, I will focus on the defense. John Atkins - DE - 6'3 305 - Atkins who...

Seriously, What is Happening to the Student Section? I am starting to get really disappointed in the student body of UGA.  I am a UGA grad as are my 3 older sisters and 2 older brothers and I have a younger sister and younger brother currently at UGA.  I have been going to UGA home games since 1977 when I was 5 years old and sitting in the student...

UGA Does NOT Run This State In a two part feature today I am evaluating the players that are currently committed to UGA.  In the Part 1 I am focusing on the offense and in Part 2 I am focusing on the defense.  In doing this feature I was looking at the rankings of the players that are committed to UGA and one thing has...

ImYourHuckleberry - MASSIVE Recruiting Update - Part 1 A majority of the time I write up my recruiting updates the focus is on players that are not yet committed to UGA.  Today I am going to do something a little different and take a look at the players that are already committed to UGA and update their progress this season and their commitment...

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...

Several UGA Commits VERY Underrated! Paris Bostick - There is not much film out there on Paris but when you do see highlights of him images of Shawn Williams jump into your mind.  Physically he is ready to play college football today.  He attacks the line of scrimmage on run plays and arrives to the ball carrier...

UGA Gets MORE Respect from ESPN The Big Man on Campus (BMOC) feature is a weekly article written by ESPN writer Gene Wojciechowski.  In his feature he goes through the happenings of the previous college football weekend.  It is a great piece that I highly recommend because of it's combination of good insight and humor.  In his...

What Combination Gives UGA Offensive Line BEST Chance for Success With the suspension of Kolton Houston and the injuries UGA has faced early in this season that has led me to the question of what offensive line combination would be best for UGA to have on the field this season.  For the purposes of this blog I will assume that in a three weeks when we play...

Stop Blaming Bobo - Dawgs Offense Most Explosive in SEC A quick look at the statistics show that UGA has one of the most powerful and explosive offenses in the SEC this season led by 3rd year starting QB Aaron Murray. While many have been very quick to criticize Mike Bobo for his playcalling this year he has been leading an offense that has been not...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Elisha Shaw - The Bulldogs have offered the monster defensive lineman from Tucker High School.  Elish Shaw is 6'5 295 pounds and is likely to be ranked as one of the top 10 defensive tackles in the nation in the class of 2014.  He has a great frame and the ability to play...

Gamecocks Go DOWN at Home this Weekend? The Missouri Tigers will take their first SEC road trip this weekend when they head to the other Columbia to face the South Carolina Gamecocks.  I don't know if the Missouri fans are ready for the environment they will see this weekend.  They will see the Cock-a-Boose crowd and then have to...

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

Wide Receiver Earned Playing Time Against FAU I know it was only one play but I believe Justin Scott-Wesley proved that UGA needs to find a way to get him on the football field this season.  The 5'11 220 pound wide receiver took a short pass and then turned upfield and took it for a big gain.  You saw an incredible burst of speed of speed...

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...

Ogletree & Rambo Back for Vandy? Obviously, we are not going to hear anything from the coaching staff on whether Alec Ogletree or Bacarri Rambo will be eligible to play against Vanderbilt this weekend but I am hoping their suspensions will be done.  It is not because I am aworriekd about Vanderbilt, it is because I want them to...

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...

What Happened to Ray Drew? Coming out of HS Ray Drew was a 5-star can't miss prospect that everybody in the SEC wanted.  So far in his Georgia career he has been very quiet and has not seen much of the field.  Like I said about some of the freshmen this is a game where Drew needs to take advantage of playing time and earn...

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...

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...

They have NFL Draft Pick’s Backing Up Future NFL Draft Picks "Mizzou isnt' nearly as good at football as No. 7 Georgia, and that's why the tigers lost 41-20 in front of more than 70,000 fans at Memorial Stadium and millions more on television Saturday.  You don't have to be a coach to see that.  Georgia has 350-pound lineman backing up 350-pound...

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...

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,...

Forget Reuben Foster - Raekwon McMillan is a MONSTER! Raekwon McMillan had a monster game for his high school team on Friday night. The young man had 26 tackles, 4 tackles for a loss, a sack, and a forced fumble.  I don't have to tell you how ridiculous those numbers are.   At 6'4 236 pounds Raekwon has the frame to easilty develop into around...

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...

Jordan Jenkins to Play KEY Role Going Forward After the dominating performance by Jarvis Jones against Missouri last night you can bet teams will re-evaluate their protections schemes in order to figure out a way to slow him down.  In the second half Missouri attempted to slide their protection to Jarvis's side and that worked for a little...

UGA and Jarvis Jones Finally Get RESPECT from ESPN Today ESPN released their Week 2 Heisman Expert's poll.  Jarvis Jones debuted on the list in 7th place.  Ahead of Jarvis Jones was Matt Barkley (USC QB), Geno Smith (WVU QB), De'Anthony Thomas (Oregon RB), Johnathon Franklin (UCLA RB), La'Veon Bell (Michigan State RB), and Marqise Lee (USC WR)....

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...

Laremy Tunsil Update and Prediction Laremy Tunsil has recently made it public that UGA and Alabama are the leaders for his signature on Signing Day.  Florida is certainly on the outside looking in and it is very doubtful that they will be able to make their way back to the top of his list.  So what are UGA and Alabama's recruiting...

Spurrier Creating His Own QB Controversy?? When UGA heads to the old Columbia to face the South Carolina Gamecocks their is now a question of who could be under center for the Gamecocks and Steve Spurrier couldn't be happier.  While Spurrier publicly said that there is no QB controversy in his mind you know that there is something else...

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...

Spurrier’s Creating His Own QB Controversy When UGA heads to the old Columbia to face the South Carolina Gamecocks their is now a question of who could be under center for the Gamecocks and Steve Spurrier couldn't be happier.  While Spurrier publicly said that there is no QB controversy in his mind you know that there is something else...

Mizzou Fans Still in Denial After Loss to UGA From www.tigerboard.com - Missouri's #1 Football Forum "Georgia didn't win this game in the trenches.  We held our own just fine.  That's just the automatic response from every SEC person." "We should have...

ImYourHuckleberry - Grading the Dawgs Week 2 v. Mizzou Quarterbacks [B+] - Honestly I think Aaron Murray had a very good game minus the one bad interception.  He was a little amped up at the beginning of the game but as he settled in he made a lot of excellent throws.  His completion...

The Dawgs Found a NEW Weapon When Marlon Brown signed with the Georgia Bulldogs the Bulldog Nation rejoiced at the second coming of A.J. Green.  In his fourth year on campus the Dawgs have yet to see this excellent athlete live up to his potential.  He has struggled with injury, a lack of consistency, and a deep depth...

This Dawgs D is Special!! Watching the Dawgs defense play I was so proud of them. When you take a closer look at what they did against Missouri it is incredibly impressive.  We had Malcolm Mitchell getting his first start at CB.  Redshirt freshmen Devin Bowman getting his 2nd start at CB.  Damian Swann getting his 2nd...

UGA Has Their Own Tebow “A lot of guys out there look up to me,” Jones said. “I just had to go the extra mile. I have to push myself and push them so that we can be so much better.” This quote by Jarvis Jones epitomizes what makes him a one of a kind...

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...

Missouri News & Updates - The Enemy’s Perspective I thought I would link the articles that the media in Missouri has been writing about the upcoming game.  It is always fun to see the oppositions perspective especially when it is such an unkown opponent like Missouri.  So below here are the articles: Missouri Player's Tweets and...

ImYourHuckleberry - Huge Recruiting Update Trenton Brown - As posted earlier today Trenton Brown took a visit to Florida last weekend and seems to really like the Gators at this point. The UGA coaches have a long term relationship with Brown, especially Will Friend, which could help UGA prevail in the end. However, UGA...

Dawgs Go Down in Columbia I have been reading a lot about UGA stuff on a bunch of sites like this one, Leather Helmet, Saturday Down South, and a few others and it just makes me laugh at how UGA fans think they are going to walk into Columbia and The Zou and just demolish us.  It is not going to happen.  It is going to...

I’m Your Huckleberry - Missouri Prediction On Saturday night at "The Zou" in Columbia, Missouri the Dawgs will take on Mizzou for the first time since 1960 when UGA won 14-0.  Obviously a lot has changed since then, Missouri has better athletes and a completely different identity.  This is a game between teams with contrasting styles and...

Decommitment Imminent?? I posted an article on Monday about Trenton Brown and his status as a Georgia Bulldog commit.  After he visited Florida this weekend we are beginning to hear from several sources that he is strongly considering decommiting from UGA.  This all started with him hearing that UGA and Coach Will...

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...

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...

This "Old Man" Is About To Take Off His Belt!! This is the most fired up I have been for a UGA game since the Boise State game last season.  If you want to get fired up to go to TigerBoard.com, the main Missouri football forum, and just read what they have to say about us.  They think they are going to come out on the field Saturday and have...

Where Did the Tight Ends Go? In the Buffalo game the UGA tight ends did not catch a single pass, in fact they were not even targeted by Aaron Murray.  So was this just to keep the plan for using Lynch and Rome under wraps or is UGA making a change on this offense where tight ends are primarily used as blockers? I...

Something Mizzou Has NEVER Seen Before I have watched quite a few of Missouri's games over the last few years and there is a consistent theme from those games.  Their opponents lay off the Missouri wide receivers at the line of scrimmage.  Even with a depleted secondary UGA will not do that, UGA will be up in their face at the line...

UGA Made a BIG Impression on Top Recruit! When Tyrone Crowder came to Athens for a few hours before Dawg Night many thought it was just a pass through visit on his way to Auburn.  He was only Athens for a few hours but it appears that the Dawgs made a huge impression on him while in Athens.  The 6'2 330 pound guard is an absolute beast...

Derrick Henry - Another School Backing Off? Derrick Henry suddenly finds himself in quite the predicament.  It has been clear since his decommitment from UGA that Alabama has been his leader and he has wanted to play RB for the Crimson Tide.  However, that opportunity may be disappearing quickly as well.  Talking to a few Alabama beat...

Two Current UGA Commits Who Could Sign Elsewhere The current UGA recruiting class is up to 26 members and of those 26 players a vast majority of them I would consider very solid.  I am actually getting to the point where I will include Tray Matthews on that list of players that are solid commits to UGA.  I had questions about whether he would...

ImYourHuckleberry - Week 2 SEC East Power Rankings #7 - Kentucky - Watching the Louisville v. Kentucky game on Sunday it was apparent that the Wildcats are far and away the worst team in the SEC East.  They will be competing with Ole Miss for the honors of worst team in the SEC. #6 - Vanderbilt - This is...

Recruit Having a Change of Heart? On Saturday UGA had a bit of a surprise visitor on campus in Kyrin Priester. Priester is a WR from Brookwood HS that was once committed to UGA before he decommitted because UGA kept adding wide receivers to the class. After his decommitment South Carolina quickly emerged as the front runner for...

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...

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...

Trenton Brown OUT Devondre Seymour IN? In an interesting development on the recruiting trail over the last several days it is becoming clear that Trenton Brown is beginning to waiver on his commitment to UGA.  What is the reason?  Brown is hearing that UGA may want him to play guard instead of tackle.  Is that true?  I'm not entirely...

Interesting Note on Tray Matthews This weekend at the Auburn v. Clemson game at the Georgia Dome it will be a whose who of recruits in the southeast.  On the list for Auburn is Reuben Foster, Carl Lawson, Montravious Adams, and Derrick Green.  Green and Adams are two five star recruits that are probably Auburn's top 2 remaining...

Missouri Stadium Half Empty? I don't know if you have seen the video that is posted on Leather Helmet and Saturday Down South today but it is hilarious.  These Mizzou students are talking about how they think we are overlooking that game.  The lady that is hosting the show says Georgia has Jarvis Jones and the Mizzou kids...

Missouri is In TROUBLE While UGA has been very fortunate to stay healthy during fall camp, Missouri has not had the same fate, especially along the offensive line.  Senior Right Guard, Jack Meiners has a sprained knee and will miss the season opener but they hope he will be back for UGA.  Their starting senior Left...

Sherman Armstrong the Savior of S&C When UGA promoted Joe Tereshinski to the head of strength and conditioning there was a lot of grumbling because it was a move to old school training and not using all the new technology and philosophies available.  People questioned whether or not he could adapt to modern times and get this team...

Are Gurley & Marshall Good Enough? Last season UGA averaged 164 yards per game rushing which ranked UGA 7th in the SEC.  To be blunt, that is not good enough.  If you look at the teams that have won the SEC Championship over the last 7 years, they have all finished the season ranked in the Top 3 in the conference in rushing....

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...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - Bold Predictions This is a season of opportunity for UGA. There are questions surrounding every team in the conference, including UGA, but UGA may be the most equipped to answer those questions. A 3rd year starter at quarterback combined with the most experienced defense in the SEC could make for a special...

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...

Tray Matthews - 2 Way Player in Athens? Last night Newnan played Marietta in the 1st game of the season for both teams.  Newnan won 38-29 and Tray Matthews was definitely the MVP of the game.  He was all over the field rushing for a TD, 100+ yards receiving, blocking a punt and having his usual outstanding performance at safety.  He...

UGA Commits Set to Make BIG Jump in Rankings UGA has several 3-star prospects that are currently committed that could make a huge jump in the recruiting rankings during this season.  Below I will list a few of the players and tell you why: Paris Bostick - 6'1 220 S - Bostick is a very physically gifted player at...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Montravious Adams - Adams had a huge performance in his first game of the season. He was playing special teams, offense, and defense. As we all know Montravious is one of, if not the best player in the country. Right now I believe it is an Auburn, Clemson, UGA battle for his...

SEC Drug Problem There appears to be a rampant drug problem going through the SEC at the moment. The Honey Badger, Da'Rick, and Isaiah Crowell - 3 of the biggest names in the SEC - all kicked off their respective teams for failed drug tests.  For all of these players it is apparently for the use of marijuana....

Open Competition... ? It occurred to me why NASCAR has a bigger following than F1 in the US... Yes, I know this is a University of Georgia blog... please bare with my digression. I have seen Jeff Gordon turn Jimmie Johnson all but sideways trying to steal a win. I have seen Tony Stewart and Bobby Labonte parked nose...

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...

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...

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...

Decision Coming SOON for UGA Recruit Kelsey Griffin is one of the biggest prospects left on UGA's board and is getting close to making a decision.  He is at a position where UGA currently has 0 commits coming in for the class of 2013, thus his importance cannot be overstated. At 6'2 290 Griffin is the ideal defensive end for...

Uriah Lemay May Remind You of UGA Legend Recently, I went to the Butler v. Mallard Creek HS game to watch UGA commit Uriah Lemay and UGA recruit Marquez North.  Leaving that game I was trying to think of a good comparison of his skill set.  First, I thought Mohammad Massaquoi but Uriah does not have that type of speed.  Then I thought...

Dark Horse RB Recruit for UGA Throughout the recruiting process UGA has been recruiting many big names at the RB position.  There has been Derrick Henry, Tyren Jones, Alvin Kamara, and Derrick Green just to name a few.  Now, there is another name that has joined that list that many have not heard about.  A.J....

Do You Wanna Get Fired Up for the Season??? Watch this video I found on Youtube of the UGA Defense from last season!!  If you aren't fired up you are not a Dawgs fan!!!! GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DAWGS!!!!!!

Grantham’s GENIUS!! I have been spending a little bit of time reading up on Missouri and following their boards just to see what fans have to say about their team and what reporters are saying about how their practices are going. One thing I have heard recently makes me think that Todd Grantham really is a...

Nightmare Scenario I was having a great discussion with a huge UGA fan and we got started talking about this season and how special it could be.  As the discussion continued, I said that I believed UGA would finish the regular season at 11-1.  He agreed with my 11-1 prediction although we disagreed on who UGA...

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...

No Derrick Henry - No Problem When Derrick Henry first committed to UGA I was very excited and perhaps it was because I was looking at him with blinders on.  I have watched a lot of film on him and while he is a talented young man I believe he is going to struggle greatly in the SEC.  I will give you a few reasons: 1)...

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...

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 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...

The Most Interesting Man in the World - Marquez North Mallard Creek WR Marquez North is a very interesting young man.  He is beyond what I would call quiet and reserved.  He does not feel comfortable speaking in front of a group of people.  I would compare him to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist without the studder.  He just appears very quiet.  The...

Uriah Lemay Outstanding Performance/Scouting Report Last night in Charlotte the #1 and #2 teams in the state played at Memorial Stadium. Butler High School, the #1 Team in North Carolina, is led by UGA commit Uriah Lemay (WR), Tennessee commit Riley Ferguson (QB), Stanford commit Peter Kalambayi (LB), and Michigan commit Channing Stribling (FS)....

Recruiting Has Undergone HUGE Change There is a new trend in recruiting that has to be very frustrating to coaches across the country.  It used to be when a prospect committed to the school they would mostly shut down their recruiting and only come visit the campus of the school they are committed too.  That is not the case...

Quarterback Problem in Athens Aaron Murray is entering his redshirt junior season and 3rd season as UGA's starting quarterback.  Hutson Mason is a true junior who has a redshirt season available.  Christian Lemay is a redshirt freshmen who has not seen action in a real football game in over 30 months.  You would think 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.

Marquez North v. Uriah Lemay Tomorrow evening in Uptown Charlotte while the Carolina Panthers are playing the Miami Dolphins, down the street Butler High School and Mallard Creek High school will be playing in the biggest game in the state.  Butler High School is led by WR Uriah Lemay (UGA commit), QB Riley...

Jay Woods Commitment Jay Woods has chosen the Vanderbilt Commodores.  He really liked James Franklin and the energy from the Vandy coaching staff. Jay Woods is scheduled to announce his...

What Has Happened to Zander Ogletree? Last season UGA rotated fullbacks with Bruce Figgins and Zander Ogletree.  While watching games I thought Zander did a pretty good job considering that he was a little undersized for the fullback position but this year he is nowhere to be found on the depth chart.  At fullback you have Merritt...

"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...

Ray Drew - Boom or Bust? When UGA signed Ray Drew fans were beyond excited.  UGA had just signed the "Pastor of Disaster" who was going to come in and wreak havoc immediately at the college level.  In his freshmen season Drew did not see the field too often and when he did he struggled.  This was in large part...

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...

Tray Matthews on the way OUT? With UGA adding Shaq Fluker to the class it was interesting to see Tray Matthews reaction in the AJC article this morning.  Below are some quotes from that article by Tray: “It affected me a little bit, but the more I thought about it, it's part of the game,” I don't...

UGA’s Best Recruiter? BIG Surprise! When UGA hired Will Friend as offensive line their was a collective - who? - amongst the Bulldog Nation. Since that time Will Friend had 3 lineman drafted in the 2012 NFL Draft and is putting together what could be the best offensive line recruiting class in the nation for 2013. It is incredible...

Could UGA Add Another Commitment Today? Coming from sources close to Shaq Fluker his commitment to UGA is imminent.  Since he named UGA his leader on July 21, 2012 the Bulldogs have cemented themselves as his clear cut choice.  Will Friend has been his primary recruiter and has done an excellent job selling immediate playing time for...

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...

Dawgs Have MAJOR Chip on Their Shoulder Something appears to be different in Athens heading into this football season.  Their is an edge to the players and coaches.  Their is no complacency, nothing is being taken for granted.  Everyone from the walk-ons to the superstars have an intensity about them that has not been seen in Athens...

Paris Bostick Commitment Recently, the Dawgs have opened a pipeline to Plant H.S. in Tampa, FL. Orson Charles and Aaron Murray are two of the most prominent players to come out of Plant. On Monday, another announcment is taking place at Plant H.S., and it will be made by Paris Bostick. Bostick was originally set to make...

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...

Another UGA Commit on Thursday? Jay Woods (6'3 280 DE) has announced that he is going to make his college decision on Thursday before his high school teams scrimmage.  His decision is down between Kentucky, Missouri, Vanderbilt, and Georgia.  He has done a great job of keeping recruiting gurus like myself guessing.  So why is...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - Recruiting Update Paris Bostick is making his announcement on Monday at 11AM at Plant High School.  He is down to UGA and the Hogs.  He said a couple weeks ago after Dawg Night that he was going to commit to UGA and then he had to postpone his decision due to a family issue.  I don't think that...

The Honey Badger GONE from LSU - WOW!! In breaking news, the Tyran Mathieu has been dismissed from the LSU football team.  Les Miles announced this today in a press conference and said that it was for a violation of team and school rules.  We may get more details on the situation later but this is obviously a big blow to the LSU...

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - INCREDIBLE Recruiting Job! We all know that after this season UGA will be losing a great deal of talent from this roster.  From the two deep roster UGA could potentially lose up to 18 players to graduation and then NFL.  We also know that due to roster management issues UGA is well below the number of 85 scholarship...

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...

Dawgs Expected to Get 25th COMMIT Monday Recently, the Dawgs have opened a pipeline to Plant H.S. in Tampa, FL.  Orson Charles and Aaron Murray are two of the most prominent players to come out of Plant.  On Monday, another announcment is taking place at Plant H.S., and it will be made by Paris Bostick.  Bostick was originally set to...

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...

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...

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

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...

Player with the MOST to PROVE for Dawgs When he was recruited to UGA he was going to be the next great wide receiver for the Dawgs.  He stood in at 6'4 215 with all the physical talent in the world.  Recruiting services unamimously ranked him as a five star recruit.  Dawg fans believed he was the second coming of A.J. Green....

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...

Missouri? Seriously Missouri? C’mon Man! So today I am in Columbia, Missouri.  I flew into St. Louis last night on business and drove into Columbia this morning.  I thought I would give my fellow Dawg fans a little bit of perspective on this place. First of all, I am sure many Dawg fans will be flying into St. Louis.  It is not...

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...

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...

Interesting Sidenote on Tray Matthews It is no secret that I am not a big fan of the coverage of the AJC on UGA football and recruiting.  However, Michael Carvell has a very nice article on the Tray Matthews decision.  As you know, I have stated that I believe that Tray Matthews already has 1 foot out the door of UGA and it is just...

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...

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...

Branden Smith Cleared - Ogletree & Rambo Cleared Next? The media and UGA fans have been very concerned about the suspensions of UGA players and how the would effect them in their first SEC game against Missouri.  Today we learned that Branden Smith was the first player to be cleared.  In fact, he will not even be miss the first game against...

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...

Why the UGA Offensive Line WILL be Better this Year and in the Future Over the last few years UGA has had a lot of trouble along the offensive line with being forced to play guys that are not ready or play them out of position.  However, with the 2013 recruiting class UGA finally has a chance to change all that and build an offensive line that could become of...

Gators WR Coach Resigns - UGA Benefits? Florida WR Coach Aubrey Hill resigned from the Florida Gators today.  His resignation was sudden and came as a surprise for Florida WR recruits.  One that UGA was recruiting heavily, Ahmad Fulwood is now in an interesting situation.  Hill was his primary recruiter and Fulwood often referenced...

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...

Todd Grantham’s NEW Defensive Philosophy Heading into the 2012 Season Todd Grantham has made a philosphical change with the defensive scheme that lead UGA to the #5 Defense in the Nation.  This philosophy change is meant to get more athletic along the defensive front and to get more pass rushing on the field.  UGA has converted...

UGA Get’s Biggest Commitment of 2013 Today On the day that Kolton Houston was announced to be ineligible to play for UGA the Dawgs pick up a massive offensive line commitment for the class of 2013.  Trenton Brown is a 6'8 340 pound offensive tackle/offensive guard that will be able to come in and make an immediate impact on the offensive...

Kolton Houston - A Lawsuit against NCAA & Emmert to Get Eligibility Greg McGarity sent a personal letter to NCAA President Mark Emmert: “Mr. Houston, his parents and our staff acknowledge the fact that the results of that test severely impacted his ability to compete as a...

What DAWG Fans Should Make of the Dawgs Being #6 in Coaches Poll The Coaches Poll has been released and once again the Top 10 is dominated by the SEC.  In fact, the SEC has the #1 (LSU) and #2 (Alabama) teams in the country.  That is rightfully deserved given the fact that the SEC has won 7 BCS Championships in a row.  Then, you have UGA at #6, South Carolina...

Harvey-Clemons following Ogletree’s Path to Stardom? There is no question Josh Harvey-Clemons athletic ability.  At 6'4 with extremely long arms and incredible speed he has the potential to be a dominant defender on the SEC level.  However, in order to become a star linebacker he is going to need to add a considerable amount of weight.  In the...

John Theus - Your Time is Now Now that the Kolton Houston situation has largely been cleared up it is now apparent that John Theus will play a very significant role on the offensive line this season.  If Houston would have been ruled eligible to play I believe that he would have been the starter at the beginning of the...

Incredible Weight Gains/Loss on UGA Roster Below are some of the weight updates given by UGA Damian Swann up to 189 - Gain of 10 pounds John Jenkins up to 358 Alec Ogletree up to 232 Bacarri Rambo lost 8 pounds down to 210 Mike Gilliard up to 230 Ray Drew up to 284...

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...

Langley to Gamecocks NO BIG DEAL for Dawgs Brendan Langley is a talented cornerback, there is no question about that, however his loss is not a crushing blow to the UGA recruiting class.  As of this moment UGA has 4 cornerbacks already committed:  Steven Nelson (6'1 195), J.J. Green (5'9 175), Reggie Wilkerson (5'11 180), and Shaq Wiggins...

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...

Is Tray Matthews the Next to Flip? After the commitment of Reuben Foster to Auburn the speculation immediately began that Tray Matthews would abandon his UGA commitment and to join his best friend.  It has not happened yet but this weekend could be a critical turning point since Tray is going to Auburn with his father to visit....

DawgNight Thread Tyrone Crowder #3 OG in the Nation arrived in Athens early this morning for DawgNight to get some quality time with the coaches before the over 91 players arrive in Athens. Tim Kimbrough #3 ILB in the Nation got to Athens last night with his family to be able to spend more time...

To Commit or De-Commit?... That is the Question. With reports becoming more abundant with the talk of Reuben Foster on the verge of de-committing from Alabama to stake his claim on a future with the "Red & Black" due to he and Matthews making it know they WILL be playing @ the same university, I see confidence...

7/3/12 - ImYourHuckleberry - Daily Recruiting Update Reuben Foster, Alvin Kamara, Tray Matthews, Tramel Terry, Shaq Wiggins, and Brice Ramsey are all traveling together to The Opening tomorrow.  That's some of UGA's best recruiters (Wiggins & Matthews) spending a lot of time with two of UGA's top remaining targets.

Regardless of If He EVER Plays Another Down for UGA... Everyone needs to keep Isaiah Crowell in their prayers.  This is a young man who unfortunately came from a terrible situation and has not been able to fight through.  He will most likely never play another down for UGA but we should all hope he is able to turn his life around.

Tray Matthews Audio- http://vmedia.rivals.com/uploads/878/1258471.MP3 Its the second question. The link is above. We didn't get a decommit today from Reuben Foster, but Tray said in this interview that everyone (RF) is down to either Auburn and UGA. He didn't really mention Alabama. JHD from Leatherhelmetblog.com who is a great insider (who predicted jordan...

GREAT New Workout for UGA Offensive Lineman On Twitter and Instagram there are some great thing coming from Kolton Houston and John Theus.  The offensive lineman have started a new workout...Boxing!! I think this is a great workout for these guys.  It is great for pass blocking because it should improve your...

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...

Dawgs Land Commit #20 Naim Mustafaa has committed to the Dawgs over his father's alumni Georgia Tech.  The 6'5 235 pound outside linebackers ranked as a 4-star prospect by 247sports.com.  He was UGA's #1 target at outside linebacker and will likely be the only outside linebacker they sign in this recruiting...

Maibag Answer #5 - Derrick Henry and Alabama - When Will we Know? Also Alvin Kamara... Derrick will be visiting Alabama this weekend as all Dawg fans know.  It will be interesting to see if Alabama can convince him that he will be a RB for his entire career there.  It is obvious that Derrick wants to be a RB in college.  I don't know if Bama will be able to convince him that they...

Mailbag Answer #4 - Von Bell Update There is no doubt that UGA is still in it for Von Bell.  However, it is very difficult to give an update on Von Bell because his list is still pretty much wide open.  My prediction would be that UGA is in the Top 5 right now for Bell alongside - Tennessee, Auburn, Alabama, and Ohio State.  Bell...

Mailbag Answer #3 - Has UGA Recovered w/ Langely? I do not have the inside details on what happened with UGA and Brendan Langely unfortunately.  I could speculate but I don't want to put any false assumptions out there but UGA suddenly dropped significantly to him.  From the basics of what I have read/heard there was some kind of...

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...

Mailbag Answer #1 - Reuben Foster Update The more research I have done and the more people I have talked to about Reuben Foster I believe he is going to stick with Alabama. As far as I am concerned the talk of a package deal for Kamara, Foster, and Matthews may be a little more talk then reality. If I had to to put a confidence level...

Dawgs Land 18th Commitment Uriah Lemay committed to the Dawgs last night in Charlotte, NC.  He is an impressive looking, well spoken young man from a great family.  Having seen him play in person at Butler HS on two occasions he has a physical style of play and excellent hands.  I compare his game to Michael Bennett's...

Bad News with Langley Ok so three days ago on espn langley said uga was his leader. But tonight langley said uga has fallen back to 5! Obviously something bad has happened. I think he got upset with something about the number of dbs we have recruited! This is bad..... What have yall heard?

The Players LOVE Sherman Armstrong The summer has started and the UGA players have scattered.  Some have gone home, some are on vacations, and some are still on campus.  Of those players who stayed on campus and are doing some summer workouts, the most popular man appears to be Sherman Armstrong.  He is training them to add more...

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.

Mizzou IS NOT Ready! The last couple days there have been replays of Missouri games on TV and I have watched a good bit of the games and I have reached several conclusions.  Missouri has talent.  Missouri has good athleticism.  Missouri IS NOT ready for SEC football.  In the 3 games I watched against Big 12...

June 1st Commitment On June 1st Uriah Lemay will be announcing where he is going to play college football.  He named his leaders almost a month ago but it is really down to 3 schools for Lemay - UGA, Clemson, and Virginia Tech.  I believe the Dawgs are the certain favorite and he will be coming to play...

Derrick Henry - Cause & Effect As I wrote yesterday, Derrick Henry is now planning on visiting Alabama the weekend of June 8th.  Previous to his current flirtation he has been taking visits to Tennessee.  Also, he has always said that the Florida Gators were his favorite team growing up.  Somehow in the midst of...

Derrick Henry to Alabama? Over the weekend on Twitter, Derrick Henry announced that he will be visiting Alabama on June 8th.  If you have been a frequent reader of this blog you know that I have repeatedly said that I don't believe his commitment to UGA is solid.  When Tennessee was our primary competitor for...

UGA FINALLY Has a Chance to BUILD Solid Foundation along Offensive Line Over the last few years UGA has had a lot of trouble along the offensive line with being forced to play guys that are not ready or play them out of position.  However, with the 2013 recruiting class UGA finally has a chance to change all that and build an offensive line that could become of...

Robert Nkemdiche’s Recruitment Is Wide Open So Robert Nkemdiche, the nations consensus number 1 player, has added Mississippi State to his top schools. His top 6 is Bama, Lsu, Dawgs, Rebels, Clemson, and now MSU. This shows me that Robert does not have a top group of schools of the six. Most people have been speculating Bama, Lsu, and Ole...

Shaq Wiggins UGA’s Best Recruiter I've never really been a fan of Twitter until I started visting this site and saw how much information comes from players and recruits on there.  My favorite player by far to follow is Shaq Wiggins because he tweets like crazy.  The coolest part is who his tweets are always too.  They are always...

We Got A Couple New Commits I have been doing a little bit of a different type of scouting over the past few days, wedding venue scouting, so I have been a little bit out of the loop with UGA news.  Tonight I planned on sitting down and getting caught up on the world of UGA recruiting when I saw a post by a user on our...

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...

Shaq Wiggins Tweets He tweeted we got a couple of new commits. but I can't say none. This was retweeted by Alvin Kamara which is interesting. Who do yall think he means? Devondre Seymour maybe cuz he is a uga lock. Maybe Cardiello who is all dawg I believe. Maybe Kubalnow (Sorry for spelling to...

UGAs Forgotten Man in 2012 Recruiting Class UGA fans are very exciting to see a lot of the players in the 2012 class.  They want to see if Keith Marshall is game-breaking playmaker that he built up a reputation for being in high school.  They want to see if Todd Gurley is the big physical punishing back that can grind out games in...

Reuben Foster and Ray Lewis Yesterday I was talking to a friend of mine who is an attorney who attended law school at Miami when Ray Lewis was playing middle linebacker for the Canes.  The name Ray Lewis came up because he had just watched some Youtube video of Reuben Foster and said that that Foster is the closest thing...

New Look Special Teams in 2012 WILL Be Better UGA may not have made any coaching changes in terms of personnel for special teams heading into the 2012 season but it is obvious that it was a major concern of the coaches during spring practice.  The coaches have made some formation changes and some personnel decisions that will make the...

SEC Champs Yet Again! The UGA Men's Tennis team won it's first SEC Championship today since 2007!  I don't care what sport it is, it always feels damn good to bring an SEC Championship trophy home!! Damn Good Dawgs!!  Way to Represent UGA!!

Garcia to Florida = Tunsil to UGA? The offensive line transfer from Maryland, Max Garcia made the surprising decision to transfer to Florida instead of UGA.  Many thought that it was a lock that this ALL-ACC tackle would choose the Dawgs because it was very close to home.  However, by picking the Gators a couple things become...

UGA Recruits DESTROY Competion at Elite 11 Combine and Nike Camp This weekend was huge for a lot of the top high school football players in the country.  You had an Elite 11 Camp and you also you had a Nike Camp.  Many of Georgia's commits and potential recruits were at these events and from everything I have heard they were among the best! At the...

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...

Derrick Henry v. Reuben Foster and Alvin Kamara Derrick Henry has been committed to the Dawgs for over a year now but it appears that he may be wavering on his commitment.  There are conflicting reports everywhere on him.  Derrick Henry just completed his second straight weekend at Tennessee where he is flirting heavily with the Volunteers....

Tray Matthews Tweet "I hate to tell the news man. But before the season starts. Me, Reuben, and Alvin gotta big suprise for the nation."   What does this mean? 1. Alvin Kamara and Reuben Foster going to UGA. But why would he include his name for the big suprise? 2. Alvin Kamara and Tray...

ImYourHuckleberry - Tony Parker Prediction On Monday, 6'8 255 pound center Tony Parker is set to announce where he will attend college next season.  The two favorites to land him are UCLA and UGA with an outside shot for Duke and Memphis.  Here is what I think. Duke - I do not think Duke lands him because...

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...

Rambo and the NFL Supplemental Draft Bacarri Rambo is currently in the process of appealing his 4-game suspension for a second positive drug test for marijuana.  If he loses the appeal and has to serve sit out 1/3 of the season it will be very interesting to see if he decides to stay at UGA or enter the supplemental draft.  The...

Why Reuben Foster Transferred to Auburn HS You can call me crazy but I was talking with some of my friends and I thought about why Reuben Foster would transfer to a high school in Auburn, Alabama.  I know that his coach was fired and all that stuff or he never would have left LaGrange.  But when his coach was let go and he decided to...

Uriah Lemay to Name LEADER Living in Matthews, NC has had its benefits when following the recruitment of UGA targets from the state of North Carolina.  UGA has an especially long history in the Matthews, NC area with Mohammad Massaquoi, Mario Raley, and Joe Cox from Independence High School.  Then, you have the most...

Silent COMMIT to UGA? One of UGA's top remaining targets is cornerback Brendan Langley of Kell HS in Marietta, GA.  This 6'1 185 pound cornerback is battling it out with Shaq Wiggins for the title of #1 cornerback in the state of Georgia.  He is a very smooth athlete and has excellent top end speed.  He is also a...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update!! Tramel Terry Update  UGA added another cornerback with Reggie Wilkerson deciding to become a Dawg!  What does this have to do with Tramel Terry?  I believe that the addition of Wilkerson means that Tramel Terry will most likely end up playing as a full time wide...

UGA gets COMMIT #2 on G-Day! Reggie Wilkerson a 5'11 174 cornerback from Florida has commuted to the Dawgs!! This is the 4th cornerback to commit to the Dawgs for 2013.

Should we Start Worrying about Derrick Henry? One of the committed players who will not be in Athens for G-Day is Derrick Henry.  His initial plans were to head up to South Carolina and visit the Gamecocks with a few of his teammates.  Instead, he is going to be staying home and taking the SAT again.  Even though Derrick will not be in...

UGA Linebacker Corp #1 in NATION I was talking to a good friend of mine who is a big Gamecock fan and we got started talking football as always.  We were talking about the possible suspension of Alec Ogletree for two games and he said, “you guys won't miss him, you have the best group of linebackers in the country.”  That got...

Reuben Foster TRANSFERS to Auburn High School in Alabama Looks like bad news for the Dawgs.  Reuben Foster made the decision to transfer to Auburn High School in Alabama.  Could also be bad news for the Crimson Tide.  The starting QB at Auburn HS is the son of Auburn running back's coach Curtis Luper.  Also, a receiver on the team is the son of Auburn...

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

Safety Marc Deas Decides to RETURN to UGA Football Team!! In big news for the UGA football team safety Marc Deas has decided to return to the football team!  This is big news for the Dawgs because his decision to transfer led to a severe lack of depth at the safety position.  It is big for UGA to have him back and he will see significant time on the...

UGA Finally Has GROWN Men! This is the first time I can remember when UGA's best players have made the unselfish decision to come back and stay in school.  I know that UGA has suffered several suspensions of veterans Bacarri Rambo, Sanders Commings, and possibly Branden Smith but when you look at these players in pictures...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update!! Let me start off by saying WOW!  What a weekend!  I was fortunate enough to go to Augusta over the weekend for the Masters and watch the greatest golf tournament on earth.  I cannot be any more excited for Bubba Watson, so proud of him and happy for him.  Damn Good Dawg!  Amongst all of the...

Commitment Number 10! http://blogs.ajc.com/recruiting/2012/04/06/wr-kyrin-priester-commits-to-uga-over-vanderbilt-and-uga/?cxntfid=blogs_recruiting We are on a roll! And...

ImYourHuckleberry - Taj Letman Prediction This young man is an excellent looking prospect at free safety.  He is originally from Elbert County High School but was unable to enroll in a D-1 University because of his grades and test scores.  In his year at Holmes C.C. in Mississippi he has taken care of business in the classroom and has...

Bobby Petrino v. Damon Evans Oh Bobby, Bobby, Bobby….What did you get yourself into?  This is one accident that just keeps getting better and better as the details come out on the story.  Bobby Petrino eats dinner with his wife and then tells her he is going to go for an evening bike ride.  Well, he takes his bike out and...

UGA Receiver READY to Shine in 2012 He came to UGA as a 5-star recruit.  The season before he came to UGA a true freshmen named A.J. Green had just shown what type an impact a talented receiver can make.  The expectations were through the roof, he was going to be the 2nd coming of A.J. Green.  However, now heading into...

Intense & Physical Practice Leads to NEW Commit UGA's latest commitment is for the Class of 2014.  Nick Glass, a 6'2 200 pound safety, decided to make his decision to attend UGA public yesterday afternoon.  Nick is a very physical safety that has experience playing corner on the high school level as well.  It is likely that he will outgrow...

Dawgs Get HUGE Commitment Nick Glass a 6'2 200 pound safety for the 2014 class decided to commit to the Dawgs!!  He has the potential to be an elite strong safety in the SEC.  He said that he has always wanted to be a Dawg so when UGA offered him last weekend he decided there is no reason why he should not commit.  It...

UPDATE on Reuben Foster Good for UGA? In My Latest Recruiting Update I Posted: A lot will be decided in Reuben Foster's recruitment this summer.  Reuben has three options on where he could attend high school next semester.  The 1st option is to stay at Troup County High School....

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...

Chad Simmons UGA’s New Recruiting Coordinator? There has been a rumor floating around that Chad Simmons of Scout.com may fill the new recruiting coordinator position that has been created to UGA.  This position was created to be a full-time person that has one concern - analyzing future prospects and recruting them.  I think this is a great...

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

Jay Rome an UPGRADE from Orson Charles? Orson Charles was a very good tight end for UGA.  He was very strong, very athletic, and had good speed to stretch the defense.  However, there is one thing that Orson Charles never really did.  That was catch touchdowns.  In his college career UGA quarterbacks threw a total of 88 TD's.  Orson...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Reuben Foster – 6'1 240 – MLB A lot will be decided in Reuben Foster's recruitment this summer.  Reuben has three options on where he could attend high school next semester.  The 1st option is to stay at Troup County High School.  This is the most...

Nkiemdiche WILL NOT Be a Dawg This blog was contributed by our user DawgInSweden yesterday but due site maintence I know many of you did not get to see it but I figured I would repost it since you would be interested in this bit of insider information: Having been born and raised in...

Why Georgia WILL WIN the First 4 Games!! As of this moment UGA will be missing Sanders Commings, Branden Smith, Bacarri Rambo, and Alec Ogletree for the first two games of the season.  Bacarri Rambo will likely have to sit out two additional games.  Those are 4 starters on the UGA defense so how can UGA possibly win their first four...

Nkiemdiche WILL NOT Be a Dawg Having been born and raised in Grayson I know a lot of people who are very familiar with the recruitment of Robert.  We all know how great of a player he is and we all want him in Athens but it looks like the odds of that happening have gone way down for two reasons.  Apparently, we were in the...

Why Georgia WILL WIN the First 4 Games in 2012 As of this moment UGA will be missing Sanders Commings, Branden Smith, Bacarri Rambo, and Alec Ogletree for the first two games of the season.  Bacarri Rambo will likely have to sit out two additional games.  Those are 4 starters on the UGA defense so how can UGA possibly win their first four...

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...

Kick Him Off the Team!! The next player who violates team rules or does something off the field should be kicked off the team immediately with no questions asked!  The players need to know that there is a zero tolerance policy at UGA right now.  I don't care if it is Isaiah Crowell, Aaron Murray, or a walk on like...

The New UGA Way to Discipline Players A few weeks ago if you asked me I would not have thoguht UGA had 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 player making an occasional bad decision.  That is what has...

UGA Lacking Accountability & Leadership Ok, this is the last of my negative blogs.  From tomorrow on I will be positive.  However, I am very disappointed in the lack of accountability by the players as individuals.  Don't they know that they have a chance to win an SEC and BCS Championship?  Don't they know that they have hundreds of...

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...

Playing Football for UGA is a PRIVILEGE Not A RIGHT! This idea comes to me from a movie therefore I understand if many of you think it is not realistic or not serious.  But in the movie Coach Carter when they locked the gym until the players reached the grades they promised, I think UGA needs to do something radical like that.  These players need...

Update On Reuben Foster http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2012/03/star_linebacker_recruit_reuben.html   I wrote a blog a few days ago about Foster. According to Tray Matthews Foster was supposed to be transferring to Tray's high school. In this article Reuben Foster says he will attend a high school in...

Ogletree & Rambo Suspended 2-4 Games!! For an undisclosed violation of team rules Bacarri Rambo and Alec Ogletree will be suspended between 2 and 4 games.  Therefore, UGA will be without 3 of its starting 4 in the secondary in the first game of the season against Buffalo and could be without those same 3 players when they travel to...

Richard Samuel FRUSTRATED When Richard Samuel came out of High School he was rated as a 5-Star Athlete.  He had excelled at both linebacker and tailback at that level.  He was so good at running back that recruiting services had him ranked ahead of Ryan Williams (Virginia Tech), Chris Polk (Washington), Jaquizz Rodgers...

ImYourHuckleberry - Who is Next to COMMIT to UGA? If you have followed UGA recruiting for 2013 you know that they have gotten off to a fast start.  They had early commitments from Brice Ramsey and Derrick Henry, now they have added Tray Matthews, Shaq Wiggins, “Moose” Johnson, Shaq Wiggins, Tramel Terry, Johnny O'Neal and Chris Mayes.  Those...

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...

HUGE SEC East Recruiting Update As you all know recruiting is in full swing for the 2013 class.  UGA has gotten off to a very strong early start with commitments from the likes of Derrick Henry, Brice Ramsey, Tray Matthews, Shaq Wiggins, Tramel Terry, and Johnny O'Neal.  As a matter of fact UGA already holds 9 commitments for...

Sherman Armstrong’s Role and Impact on S&C Sherman Armstrong was hired at UGA for one reason - to make UGA a faster team.  If you saw the results from the NFL Combine it was obvious that under Coach T UGA made great gains in terms of brute strength.  Cordy Glenn and "Bean" Anderson were two of the strongest offensive lineman at the draft...

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...

DawgBark’s Favorite Man (Other than Huckleberry the recruiting genius) Reuben Foster Might Go to Tray Matthews High School According to Tray Matthews (A future recruting director at uga :)) Reuben Foster will be attending highschool with him next season at Newman highschool. Foster and other Troupe County players have wanted to transfer since their coach was fired. I'm not sure how true this is (it is coming from a...

The Ogletree v. Crowell Brawl Saturday was the first full pads practice for UGA players since their bowl game loss to Michigan State.  By all accounts it was a very physical practice with big hits and high emotions.  One recruit tweeted that Ogletree and Crowell had a heck of brawl after one play.  I...

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...

Commitment Number 9!!!!!! Johnny O neal is the number 3 inside linebacker and number 88 player in the country according to rivals. He committed to uga today after saying uga and tech were his top schools. This is a huge commitment since we need linebackers so much. Let's hope he can get defenders like Robert Nkemdiche,...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Part 2 Last week I gave a look at the number of players UGA has offered by...

The Next Great UGA Safety Bacarri Rambo and Shawn Williams are one of the top safety tandems in the country.  Both are seniors and will be playing on Sunday's after they complete their senior seasons in 2012.  That invariably begs the question of who will take their place after this season?  Who will step in and play if...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Part 1 Last week I gave a look at the number of players UGA has offered by...

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...

A Prediction Come True On January 15th I posted the following blog: Every offseason after spring semester we see several players that have not received enough playing time, have struggling grades, or want to get closer to family – transfer from UGA to a smaller Division I-AA school....

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...

The Hutson Mason Situation The Hutson Mason saga has been a roller-coaster ride his first two seasons in Athens.  Unfortunately for him, he arrived at UGA a year after Aaron Murray's redshirt season.  Therefore, headed into this season they are both entering their junior season.  Murray has entrenched himself as 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...

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update UGA has officially offered 75 players for the 2012 Recruiting Class.  That is a big number for UGA at this point in the recruiting process.  It shows that UGA is determined to sign a full class of a minimum 25 players this season.  I am sure that there will be many...

Defense Set to DOMINATE the Spring Usually when Spring Practice begins the offense is always a little behind the defense.  That should be no exception for UGA in Spring Practice beginning this week.  The defense returns 9 of 11 starters and 20 of 22 on the two-deep depth chart from last season.  That is the recipe for a defense...

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 - 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...

Versatile UGA Offensive Line Could be DOMINANT! People are looking at UGA's offensive line this season and expecting it to be an area of weakness.  However, when I look at the line I see a lot of versatility that should allow the coaches to rotate players in order to keep them fresh.  If you watched the offensive line this past season you...

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

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...

ImYourHuckleberry - Now On Facebook & Twitter I have decided to catch up with the times and create a page on Facebook & Twitter: You can follow me on twitter @HuckleberryUGA - On Facebook my page is facebook.com/HuckleberryUGA - It may take a little while to decide how I will use...

Players Ready to SHINE in Spring Practice Jay Rome – 6'6 255 – TE Jay Rome was a very highly recruited TE in the 2011 recruiting class and was stuck behind Orson Charles and Aron White on the depth chart. After a redshirt season that allowed him develop physically and study the playbook he needs to...

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...

Derrick Henry Disrespected If you follow UGA recruiting you know the name Derrick Henry.  Derrick is a 6'3 248 pound monster tailback with outstanding speed.  If you saw him walking down the street you would think he was an NFL linebacker not a 17-year-old High School tailback.  He is that physically imposing of a player...

UGA Players on Wild Spring Break? This week is always of great concern to the UGA coaches.  The players have just finished their final mat drills and then Spring Break weekend begins.  You have some players headed to Key West and others to Panama City.  The last thing the coaches want is anyone getting arrested or making a...

Gerald Robinson Jr. and the NBA Having watched UGA play basketball this season I really enjoyed watching Gerald Robinson Jr. play.  He is a very gifted athlete that I believe should get an opportunity to catch on with an NBA team.  He stands in a 6'1 185 and is a wiry strong young man.  The thing that stands out about Robinson...

Who is going to be UGA’s most prized recruit for 2013? My bet is on Derrick Henry With his recent domination at many camps this spring, Derrick Henry very well could become that tailback that UGA has been searching for.  He is a beast at 6'3 250 lbs, and still runs a 4.5 40. The kid can flat out play, and what I want to know from all you dawg fans out there, who do YOU think...

UGA Makes Best S&C Hire Since EVER! It has happened quietly but the results should not be so quiet on the field.  UGA has hired speed specialist Sherman Armstrong to join the Strength & Conditioning Staff after the spring break.  His goal while in Athens will be to increase the hip flexibility of the players so that they can have...

Who is Next to COMMIT to UGA? If you have followed UGA recruiting for 2013 you know that they have gotten off to a fast start.  They had early commitments from Brice Ramsey and Derrick Henry, now they have added Tray Matthews, Shaq Wiggins, “Moose” Johnson, Shaq Wiggins, Tramel Terry, and Chris Mayes.  Those are 8 players...

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...

Is Grantham a Future HEAD COACH? I wish I could sit down and have an off the record conversation with Coach Grantham.  I really think he is a fascinating person and one hell of a defensive coordinator.  There are so many questions I would like to ask him and get his take.  I would like to see what was going through his mind in...

Say What You Want but Mark Fox CAN FLAT OUT COACH! UGA had absolutely no business beating Mississippi State. Mississippi State is bigger, stronger, more athletic, and more talented. However, UGA had two things that proved to be much more important. UGA had more heart and

Say What You Want But MARK FOX CAN FLAT OUT COACH! UGA had absolutely no business beating Mississippi State.  Mississippi State is bigger, stronger, more athletic, and more talented.  However, UGA had two things that proved to be much more important.  UGA had more heart and

ImYourHuckleberry - HUGE Recruiting Update Scout.com just released their updated 2013 Recruiting Rankings yesterday evening.  As I researched the list and looked at where Georgia prospects were ranked at various positions it was amazing what I saw.  I will take a brief moment to summarize what I thought were some of the major...

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. Day because big things were coming.  This is the first of the "big things".  Tramel Terry decided to end his recruitment and recommit to the DAWGS.  Huge addition for the Dawgs because he is the #1 player in the state of South Carolina...

ImYourHuckleberry - Why I am SO CONFIDENT Heading Into Spring!! As always there are very talented players performing at UGA's Pro Day.  Orson Charles, Cordy Glenn, Justin Anderson, and Brandon Boykin headline that list and will undoubtedly be playing on Sunday.  While there is talent to be...

The Student Section Needs to Stand Up and Step Up! I am a proud '08 graduate of the Terry College of Business and the six years I spent in Athens were the best of six years of my LIFE!  I loved the 40 Watt, Allen's, The Blind Pig and everything about the Classic City.  I loved laying out on the grass of North Campus studying on weekdays...

UGA Day in Charlotte, NC Charlotte, NC will be hosting it's 2nd Annual UGA Day on Wednesday, May 9th 2012.  Last year this event was a great success as it was hosted at the NASCAR Hall of Fame and attended by President Adams, Greg McGarity, Mark Fox, and Mark Richt among others.  This year it will be hosted at...

How Good Can Isaiah Crowell Be? With the recent interview of Arthur Lynch it has been very refreshing to hear that Isaiah Crowell has made some big strides as a person during this offseason. When he was first on campus Lynch acknowledged that they had to drag him to workouts. I remember at that point Crowell still had a...

Don’t Be Disappointed About V.I.D. Day As we all know UGA had a boatload of talent on campus this weekend.   Among the visitors were Naim Mustafaa, DeAndre Johnson (Commit), Brice Ramsey (Commit), Derrick Henry (Commit), Shaq Wiggins (Commit), Delando Crooks, Tray Matthews (Commit), Antonio Riles, Raekwon McMillan, Alan Knott, Laremy...

Tray Matthews Gives UGA Coaches a HUGE Endorsement Tray Matthews had some ringing endorsements for the UGA coaches this on his Twitter this weekend.  First he said “Talking to UGA coach Lilly.  Man they treat us like family.  Just seems so real!!”  How nice is it to hear that?  A big part of UGA's recruiting pitch is that we are a family in...

DAMN GOOD DAWG - Brian Harman! PGA Tour Rookie, Brian Harman, had a career day yesterday on the PGA Tour shooting a 61 - 9 under par.  That got him into contention at the Honda Classic going into the weekend.  Harman came to UGA as one of the top amateur players in the country and struggled a litle bit after turning pro....

InDepth Look at UGAs 2013 Offensive Line Recruiting One of the biggest areas UGA is recruiting for 2013 is the offensive line.  The coaches are recruiting every position and every type of lineman to build a solid base for the future.  They are fortunate that the state of Georgia is loaded with solid lineman and then they are able to cherry pick...

Dawg to Win the Heisman on the 30th Anniversary of Herschel? In 1982, Herschel Walker became the 2nd Heisman Trophy winner from the University of Georgia.  Frank Sinkwich is UGA's only other Heisman winner taking home the trophy in 1942.  UGA seems to have something with winning the Heisman on years that end with a 2.  So, what are the odds...

UGA’s SECRET WEAPON on Offense for 2012 In my opinion, UGA has a secret weapon on offense heading into the 2012 season.  His name is Justin Scott-Wesley.  Justin is a 5'11 220 pound track star who signed with the Dawgs last season and redshirted in 2011.  It was a much needed redshirt for Justin because he was very raw as a WR.  He...

Defense Defense and Some More....DEFENSE! As the 2013 recruiting class begins to take shape it is clear that UGAs #1 priority is defense, and rightfully so.  UGA will lose anywhere between 10-16 players that are on the 2-deep depth chart next season.  Therefore, UGA will need to replenish the defense not only with a lot of bodies but...

Isaiah Crowell Shining During Offseason In a piece by Marc Weiszer for DogBytes he interviewed Arthur Lynch.  Suprisingly, a large portion of their conversation ended up focusing on Isaiah Crowell.  The reason it went that direction is that UGA has a Brother's Keeper program.  The point of this program is you are partnered with a...

ImYourHuckleberry’s - A Name to Watch in the Future One of my favorite players in the 2014 recruiting class will be on campus this weekend for Very Important Dawg Day.  He will be taking the trek up from Lithonia, GA with his teammate and 2013 UGA target Josh Outlaw.  His name is Wesley Green.  Wesley just finished his sophomore season at...

Grantham to Emply the Giants NASCAR Front? Over the last few seasons the New York Giants have made the "NASCAR" defensive front infamous.  For those of you who are not familiar with this - it is 4 defensive ends on the field at the same time in passing situations.  When the Giants use the NASCAR front it is Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck,...

Is 2013 UGA’s Best Chance for #1 in the Nation Take a quick look at the players UGA has committed at the moment for the 2013 recruiting class.  It is an unbelievable group of 7 players.  Brice Ramsey is a 4-star quarterback who is certainly one of the Top 5 in the nation.  By the end of his senior season I fully expect him to be a...

UGA #2 on Nkiemdiche’s List In an interview yesterday Robert Nkiemdiche listed UGA as #2 on his list of schools behind Alabama.  He has Ole Miss #3 after his visit this weekend and LSU as #4.  That is a very interesting development given the fact that after his visit to UGA he said that he had a great time but wasn't ready...

VERY IMPORTANT DAWG Day This weekend is the official UGA V.I.D. Day.  For those of you who do not know that is Very Important Dawg Day.  The players that have already confirmed that they are visiting include - Naim Mustafaa, DeAndre Johnson (Commit), Brice Ramsey (Commit), Derrick Henry (Commit), Shaq Wiggins...

UGA Adds GROWN MAN & Future Noseguard DeAndre Johnson committed to the Dawgs today!!  This morning I ranked him as my #24 player in the state of Georgia.  He is only 17 years old and stands in at 6'3 315 pounds.  He is from Northgate HS in Newnan, GA so he is the 2nd player from that area to commit this season joining Tray Matthews...

Good News on Reuben Foster!! This weekend Reuben Foster said he felt “different” at UGA this weekend.  It was a good kind of different if you are a UGA fan.  He was able to spend a lot of time with Coach Grantham who we all know is an excellent recruiter.  They broke down film on UGA's middle linebackers and showed Reuben...

The Basketball Team Helped UGA’s Recruiting Yesterday! Yesterday the men's basketball team decided to step up and play their best game of the season.  Kentavious Caldwell-Pope showed why he will be an NBA lottery pick after his junior season.  Donte Williams was a man on the inside rejecting shot after shot and Nemanja Djurisic was awesome.  Also, I...

Don’t Question Coach Tereshinski AGAIN!! Everyone was wondering if UGA's strength and conditioning had improved?  Just take a quick look at the dominant performance by UGA players at the NFL Combine so far on Saturday. Orson Charles 35 reps on the bench press - Next closest for a TE was 27. Then take a look at the...

ImYourHuckleberry - UGA Fans Are Going to be Real Excited Tomorrow - VISIT UPDATE! Tramel Terry, Reuben Foster, Montravious Adams, and Alvin Kamara are four of the big names that are in Athens this weekend.  Each of these players are big time targets for UGA for the 2013 recruiting class and it is very interesting to see how they are reacticing to there visits on...

The Hutson Mason Saga The Hutson Mason saga has been a roller-coaster ride his first two seasons in Athens.  Unfortunately for him, he arrived at UGA a year after Aaron Murray's redshirt season.  Therefore, headed into this season they are both entering their junior season.  Murray has entrenched himself as the...

UGA’s Get’s 2013 Commit!! Steven Nelson is a 6'0 185 Junior College CB that committed to the Bulldogs on Thursday.  It is a very quiet commitment for UGA but he is a very solid player.  He is from Northside HS in Georgia but went to play JC football at College at Seqouias in California.  He has excelled while in JC and...

SUPERSTAR Recruits at UGA This Weekend Tramel Terry - 5'11 185 - WR/CB Five Star Athlete!  Probably the best athlete in the country for the 2013 Recruiting Class.  He has Keith Marshall/Malcom Mitchell speed and is incredibly quick.  Could be a star WR on the college level and a shut down CB.  Most...
