    I think I have finally fixed the recruiting hot board page, but I had to do some recoding.  If I did leave off anybody, just let me know. It should be up-to-date as of now.

  2. Bulldawg Bob2

    Gulfdawg Hello Gulldawg. Thanks for reading and dropping in to comment.

    There are different strategies and philosophies when it comes to college football recruiting, but the basic gist of it is, that college football programs, like NFL franchises, identify current needs on the roster and do their best to manage the roster so that there is adequate depth at each position group from season to season.

    The coaching staff and people involved in scouting and recruiting in the administrative role then identify prospective student-athletes that can help fill a need or role in the program and will then send out a scholarship offer at some point during the recruiting process.

    As you stated, the coaching staff knows that it cannot sign everybody, the NCAA limits programs to taking 25 scholarship players per year with some exceptions and a maximum of 85 scholarships on the roster, but it is an idea of percentages. For example, if a program offers 10 to 15 kids, who they think are the best prospects at a position group and they think they can recruit well enough to have a chance at signing, they know that they will either be able to sign only 1/3 of those offers (or less) or that they maybe only successful in recruiting 1/3 of them.

    Sometimes offers are made as a recruiting tool to get in good with a school and the coaching staff at a high school so that the University creates a pipeline to a high school program or area.

    Of course, when there are more offers than scholarships, that does mean that usually someone will get “left out” or told to look elsewhere. That part of the process is one of the “uglier” aspects of college  football recruiting.  However, good players will usually land on their feet with the number of FBS and FCS programs out there.

  3. RumRunnerDoogie

    Gulfdawg my guess is they are giving offers based on if they get situations settled

  4. Gulfdawg

    Hi guys.  I am a regular reader.  Thanks for all the work that goes into maintenance and gathering info.  I have a question that might show my ignorance.  It seems that we have made a ton of offers.  Is it safe to assume that some (or many) of thse are not commitable at this point?  How does this work?  Thanks.

  5. Reddawg13

    Chuba has special skills. Not sure his level of competition is very high, but the kid has great moves, speed and vision!

  6. Reddawg13

    Good Luck D Rob! And thanks for going out west. Not because I don’t want to go against you, but just didn’t want anyone else in the SEC to have you.

  7. DawgLink

    Indeed they did. Had some injuries / sickness that they had to work around as well

  8. Bulldawg Bob2

    MidtownTeacher  Thank you for understanding, but please understand it’s not my rule. That would be Greg Poole’s guidelines he sat down long ago, even from the Leather Helmet Blog days. I just do my best to make sure the site runs the way he wants it to; although, I happen to agree with him. Sports and politics just not mash well.

  9. Joe Dawg

    Hobnailboot aka RobG  I watched Chuba’s highlights and he looks really good. Those defenses look pretty bad to me also.

  10. Bulldawg Bob2

    Joe Dawg  Yes. Jacoby and Tony should both be on the hot board unless the ‘ye ‘ole code is bugging out again. I’ll check out it out and give her a kick and shake if they are not. Thanks.

  11. Joe Dawg

    Hey BB2 shouldn’t we have Tony Gray and Jacoby Stevens on the Hot Board? Sure would be two nice additions to the next class!

  12. DawgDaddy

    Just take all of the points from my  total,  no sense in everyone bothering to resolve it, ###

  13. Brooklyndawg

    Bulldawg36 I think that that really about sums it up. Don’t know what the family dynamics are but if he wanted to be far away to get his life really together, and on his own terms, that’s great. What I didn’t much care for was how long this went on. It seems, but we’ll never know, that Cali was out there and it’s what he wanted all along. Quite a few UGA players and potential recruits “somehow” felt pretty strongly that he was definitely coming here. I certainly got this strong impression from the fellow I spoke to last Thursday night. I’m not saying that he personally misled folks, but a silent auditorium and disappointed UGA athletes and potential athletes sure went away mystified. 

    But sobeit.

    BTW, I won the YOLO, ya’ll owe me 2000 points.

  14. RumRunnerDoogie

    Hobnailboot aka RobG RumRunnerDoogie Bulldawg Bob2 DawgByte nothing like a tackler apologizing after hitting u#

  15. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    RumRunnerDoogie Bulldawg Bob2 DawgByte Hobnailboot aka RobG  he is definitely playing against lesser competition his HS #

  16. MidtownTeacher

    in respect for bulldog Bob’s wishes for thus forum, i will refrain from political comments. however, i don’t see politics being as big a factor in college as it is for older guys like us and Berkeley doesn’t breathe as much liberalism as you fear. intellectual yes, but liberal, i haven’t seen it in my interactions with students which have been numerous.

  17. Dawgfood1960

    Folks getting upset over decision of where an 18 year old choses to attend college will have many days of unrest. Business owners get jilted daily.
    Give your best and move forward to the next client.

  18. Jay212033

    Here’s the answer to our speed at WR! I like this kid with the ball in his hands.

  19. Bulldawg Bob2

    DawgByte Hobnailboot aka RobG Hahaha. Aye. Love that kid’s name. CHUBA!!!!!!!!

  20. 1mandawgpack

    rugbydawg79  I have no way to verify this other than calling it a gut hunch, but I think he is really enamored with West Coast living and felt like that, plus a good academic institution, plus a decent football team was more than enough to overcome playing with a potentially great QB (be it Eason or Fromm), playing with other good friends/colleagues who he has met during the recruiting process, and being close to friends/family and going to school with his sister.  I respect that the young man is chasing a dream rather than making a comfortable/easy choice and living to regret it later.  I hope he does great and wish him nothing but the best.  It would have been great watching him play in the Red & Black, but ultimately it’s his decision on what he feels is best for him, and I respect that.

  21. rugbydawg79

    Bulldawg Bob2 rugbydawg79 sorry BB2 you can delete if possible I understand – I just know a lot of kids with a 4.0 that can’t get in UGA

  22. DawgByte

    Hobnailboot aka RobG Agree… we need another Chubbanator in the house! Boy’s got some mad skills!

  23. Bulldawg Bob2

    DawgByte rugbydawg79  Let’s ease off on comments that are leaning towards the beginnings of bashing a teenager for choosing where to go to school. This will go in the wrong direction fast.

    D-Rob made his decision. Let’s not start insinuating he could possibly be a bust or nit pick whether he made the right choice or not. It was his choice. Not mine, not yours, not any other fans’.

    If I am coming on strong here, it is because I want to nip in the bud and parents read our magazine and  website.

  24. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    So what is the story on that Hubbard kid, his highlight are impressive, looks like a burner

  25. DawgByte

    Jay212033 That would be a shot in the arm to this recruiting class. We are in dire need for a monster in the middle.

  26. DawgByte

    rugbydawg79 I felt the same way. My brother and I have gone round and round about Cal. He lives in San Diego and thinks Cal is a great academic institution. I once saw like a 60 Minutes story on Cal and how most Freshmen have to sit in very large auditoriums and have TA’s that barely speak English. I realize every school has a bit of that, but my takeaway from the story is that it’s exceptionally bad at Cal. 

    We have a fine academic institution and it is getting better every year. It’s come a long way and that’s positive. One kid deciding not to come to Georgia is no big deal. Lets see how this kid performs once he gets out there. 5 star bust? I guess we’ll find out.

  27. rugbydawg79

    Greg Poole If I was a gambler I would be all over the UNC game – I have a feeling we will destroy them.
    I saw your earlier post with a score prediction from Vegas – that will change.

  28. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Bulldawg Bob2 rugbydawg79  IMO it’s a slap in his dictator of a brother’s face

  29. Bulldawg Bob2

    rugbydawg79  Yes. D-Rob qualifies for Georgia even as a non-student-athlete. I don’t know why you feel like D-Rob choosing to go to Cal is a slap in your face or any other UGA alum’s / graduate’s face in regards to Georgia’s athletics.

    People choose to commit to other schools over Georgia all the time for a number of different reasons.

  30. Jay212033

    Man I hope Nate McBride commits soon that kid is an absolute MONSTER on the field!

  31. rugbydawg79

    My big question – and I realize this is probably not PC -could Demetris Robertson get into UGA if he was not a Football player ?  I just want to know after I feel like my School has been slapped in the face Academics wise – as a graduate I admit I could not get in now – however nationwide folks thinking he picked Cal over UGA because they are so much better – bothers me – I hope he is happy, gets away from his brother and does well.

  32. DawgByte

    RumRunnerDoogie DawgByte dawgmum We are the highest ranked SEC thus far. Although Bama, who is right behind us has 2 Five Star recruits.

  33. DawgByte

    Greg Poole I like the size of Blount – 6’3″ with speed and very good athleticism.

  34. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    DawgByte MidtownTeacher  That is why you’d have to have a gun pointed at me to get me to move to California and even then I’d think long and had about it

  35. Bulldawg36

    He just wanted to leave state..bottom line. He loved Stanford but had to settle for his 2bd choice

  36. Bulldawg36

    Hope that happens soon. He had great things to say about Eason after G day

  37. DawgByte

    1. Ohio St.
    2. Oklahoma
    3. Miami
    4. Notre Dame
    5. UGA

    Miami already has 15 verbals. Richt is a recruiting machine.

  38. DawgByte

    Greg Poole Last night I had dinner with a Bama fan. We talked extensively about football. He said Kirby was THE recruiter on Saban’s staff and will be tireless in his pursuit of top talent in the state of Georgia. He thought it was a very good hire for UGA and hated to see him go.

  39. DawgByte

    MidtownTeacher It’s also one of, if not THE most liberal colleges in America. If that floats your boat then it certainly is a mecca for that type of thinking.

  40. Greg Poole

    This staff gets managing fanbase expectations and sentiment. The only thing missing at this point is winning football games. If you think they will leave one single detail of a gameplan to chance, you are missing the point of Smart’s time under Saban.

  41. Bulldawg Bob2

    RobDawg  Time to pop open a cold one? …… Just kidding. LOL. Couldn’t resist. 🙂

  42. Bulldawg36

    I couldn’t stay away!!! I’m back baby!! Trey Blount baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. MidtownTeacher

    I see a few folks further down asking why Cal?

    I used to live in Georgia and a couple years ago I moved out to California.  I live across the bay from Berkeley in Marin County.  

    I think we all feel affinity to what we know and where we grow up.  I loved running through the woods growing up in Georgia as a kid.  

    However, now that I live out here, I have discovered how amazing somewhere can be.  It has opened my eyes.   

    Specifically in regards to Cal-Berkeley. It has one of the top 10 ranked business programs in the country.  UGA is good, but not at the same level.  Second, while Athens is a great college town, it is a great southern college town.  Berkeley has more interesting things about it, a different vibe.  It feels global and at the cutting edge.  Athens is comfortable and sleepy.  Of course Athens can be crazy at night, but I am talking about layout and feel of the towns, the types of restaurants, the people you see on the streets, etc.  DRob seems more open minded, more of a thinker and I think Berkeley is a good fit.   In terms of football, UGA would have been great, especially with Eason, but the Pac10 throws the ball around a lot and DRob would be fine on either team.   

    Anyway, I hope this helps give a bit on insight into some of the good things about Berkeley.

  44. Greg Poole

    The UGA recruiting engine is just getting started. There will be some misses but the only thing that will slow it is if the group in Athens can not coach.

  45. Greg Poole

    Everyone who thinks the Blunt commit just happened to come today raise your paw.

  46. RobDawg

    So for me who is less than up on all the Twitter symbols, what does the picture of the key mean in Poole’s message?

  47. RumRunnerDoogie

    DawgDaddy RumRunnerDoogie RafaRich u never made it to moloka’i did u? better than all those tourist places

  48. DawgDaddy

    RumRunnerDoogie DawgDaddy RafaRich Sounds good, been to Hawaii, Oahu, Kauai, and Maui.  Liked Kauai the best.

  49. RumRunnerDoogie

    DawgDaddy RafaRich i will treat yall well, just avoid the hell hole of maui and come to moloka’i 🙂

  50. Brooklyndawg

    Devil’s Advocate, some were saying he was not an automatic take, based on others we’re recruiting hard.

  51. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    DawgDaddy Hobnailboot aka RobG  he’s been playing with Buddy Guy since he was 8

  52. RumRunnerDoogie

    Hobnailboot aka RobG Greg Poole he was too busy screaming at kids to get off his lawn#

  53. dawgmum

    Brooklyndawg I dunno. I think it’s at 5. I saw a Nate McBride rumor. On twitter, so you know it’s true. ##

  54. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    After William Poole’s tweet earlier I will throw a guess out there, we land Stephen Guidry, he just de-committed rom USCe and is a teammmate of Wims

  55. DawgDaddy

    BahitsDawg I think it is over with DRob, I hate we missed on that talent but I am beyond tired of the drama.

  56. DawgDaddy

    BahitsDawg Bansai buckeroo I really kinda liked it myself, but I am sorta crazy too.

  57. Bansai buckeroo

    @Bulldawg Bob2….. Reminds me of a “C” programming class I took many years ago when I worked for Honeywell. They brought a guy in from Milan, Italy to teach the class. His accent was so thick I thought I was going to lose my mind. By the time I figured out what he had just said, he was on to something new…. I don’t know what they were thinking…haha

  58. Greg Poole

    Hobnailboot aka RobG To cold for me but I talked with some guys from PA who were catching some.

  59. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Bulldawg Bob2 BahitsDawg RobDawg  if he was he picked a bad location to announce

  60. Bulldawg Bob2

    Most of the flagship state universities have those large auditorium lecture classes for the core studies, and most have a GA running the show for the professor.
    My Statistics 101 class freshman year at UGA had 300 and a GA from Korea with a heavy accent giving the lecture.

  61. Greg Poole

    BahitsDawg He is not subject to transfer rules until he enrolls but this one is over – time to move on.

  62. DawgByte

    RumRunnerDoogie Correct. Lots of DeRob de-recruiting will need to take place. 

    If you read Huck’s column the other day we’re fine at WR and who knows maybe Hardman gets a few touches on O. Good luck to DRob in nutterville. Wait until he gets in one of many Cal auditorium classrooms with a TA that barely speaks English!

  63. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    DawgByte RobDawg  I think it his brother and not him, he would have been able to stretch the field like no other but I am glad it’s over

  64. Brooklyndawg

    &The physics of helium should reach anyone with 2 firing neurons that the helium charge, under pressure, would quickly escape thtough every seam in the can or bottle. Open a bottle and it’s all over you.

  65. DawgByte

    Bulldawg Bob2 I agree with Huck… I think Tyler GTO Catalina will be our new RT.

  66. Backwudz

    BahitsDawg Backwudz Bulldawg Bob2 accidents do happen all the time in the gym but if something was to happen like a shoulder gives out being that he’s that size he can roll one side of 45 lbs plates onto the floor, plus its a person in the room. Almost everybody who works out on a regular basis does rep weights at home with no spotter. I’m to cheap to get a gym membership since it was free in the military so I do it daily to be honest. I wouldn’t recommend him to try and max out alone or anything crazy like that…lol

  67. Bulldawg Bob2

    BahitsDawg Bulldawg Bob2  Looking around the net, some people say it is a hoax and some say it isn’t, but I cannot find anyone that carries it. Be great for parties

  68. DawgByte

    RobDawg I said it once or twice before… moved on a long time ago. I’m actually glad that he didn’t ink with UGA. I smelled a prima donna from day 1.

  69. BahitsDawg

    Greg Poole ZippyMorocco BahitsDawg Bulldawg Bob2 RobDawg He might be back, or he might not even go.  If he doesn’t sign a scholarship, does he fall under the transfer rules?

  70. Bansai buckeroo

    Can’t believe that picture was upside down…..somebody punked him…haha

  71. Greg Poole

    ZippyMorocco BahitsDawg Bulldawg Bob2 RobDawg   Highest attendance last year was just over 60k for Grambling – Grambling must have traveled well 🙂

  72. Bansai buckeroo

    @Bahitsdawg……I nominate you for the cleanup duty when that happens…… 🙂

  73. ZippyMorocco

    Someone started a GOFUNDME account for Cleveland’s draft victims

  74. ZippyMorocco

    deltonadawg Brooklyndawg 
    UGA is a Public Ivy, and a top 20 Public school. I guess perception is reality.

  75. Brooklyndawg

    Some comedian once said, thr only worse city to be in than Philly, is Cleveland

  76. Brooklyndawg

    They’re Mad Dawg angry over the DRob thing, after the ‘Ol Miss dirty revelations!!!

  77. Brooklyndawg

    Meh….I take Cleveland’s analytical powers with a big grain, of salt. Exhibit #1, Manziel

  78. deltonadawg

    Brooklyndawg Yep he made the decision to help his future at a great academic school. I have no problem with that. Would liked to have had him at UGA but we will be fine with the kids we have.

  79. Bansai buckeroo

    @Backwudz….I agree with you…..he knows what he can handle…he wasn’t struggling at all with that weight…the fact his form was so good tells me that was a fairly easy weight for him.

  80. RobDawg

    Hehehe… Like what Ricardo Louis from Auburn had to say after being drafted by Browns. Can’t be good for future WR recruiting there under ole Gus
    “I would say that the Browns saw things from me that other teams didn’t see. They understand that I was in a scheme at Auburn that didn’t require me to run very many routes, very diverse or complex routes and the fact that I was not developed as a receiver at the time,” he said.

  81. Brooklyndawg

    I don’ t know. The kid is smart enough to look at the WRs we already have, plus the re-emphasis on a TE game and, coupled with ths academics, it was a good choice, likely earlier and more playing time. Plus don’t underestimate the importance of getting away from Carlos

  82. BahitsDawg

    Backwudz BahitsDawg Bulldawg Bob2 lol, yeah, but anytime you have enough weight that could come down on your neck and kill or damage you, you need a spotter, imho.

  83. Bulldawg Bob2

    BahitsDawg Bulldawg Bob2 RobDawg  Because he wanted to announce from the College Football Hall of Fame, and his family would not have been able to fly out to Cal with him unless Cal paid for it.

  84. Backwudz

    BahitsDawg Bulldawg Bob2 Don’t believe a guy 305 lbs needs a spotter for 245 lbs. That’s like me having a spotter for 135 lbs

  85. Bulldawg Bob2

    BahitsDawg I don’t think he is on campus yet. He is heading to Athens after exams are done at Rhode Island. He plans to enroll in June.

  86. BahitsDawg

    Bulldawg Bob2 BahitsDawg RobDawg the Cal crowd was just getting out of bed.  The fans might not even know or barely care what they just got.

    smh, why not just fly out to cal and join the team?

  87. BahitsDawg

    Bulldawg Bob2 BahitsDawg The walls have the right colors.  Is that one of our gyms?  Is he now on campus?

  88. Bulldawg Bob2

    BahitsDawg Bulldawg Bob2 RobDawg  I could be wrong, but I don’t think he was concerned about a reaction from the crowd.

  89. Bulldawg Bob2

    BahitsDawg Bulldawg Bob2  Probably, and he knows what his limitations are. I wouldn’t do it without a spotter, but outside of that, a textbook video on how to bench press. Good form. 

    Maybe the spotter was the guy shooting the video lol

  90. BahitsDawg

    Bulldawg Bob2 RobDawg I wonder if Drob got the reaction he was hoping for.

    I can’t imagine that was it, but who knows other than him?

  91. Greg Poole

    1mandawgpack Hobnailboot aka RobG Jay212033

    You guys might want to read this:

  92. BahitsDawg

    DawgDaddy Brooklyndawg If she does, it would keep open a path for Drob’s return….. saga continues…

  93. Bulldawg Bob2

    RobDawg  It was very quiet when he revealed he was going to Cal. A few hand claps, but mostly awkward silence

  94. Bulldawg Bob2

    RobDawg  There was a link to the live stream, but I haven’t looked for a recording of it. I’ll see if there is one.

  95. RobDawg

    Just got back from being out with family and signed on. Disappointed in DRob result but not totally surprised. Is there a link to a video of the announcement? I’m just curious to see it and reactions. Bet there was a lot of people feeling let down after showing up with kids and such… Wonder how many blue and gold shirts were in audience? From photos I saw there were tons of kids there in red tees

  96. 1mandawgpack

    Bansai buckeroo  It just seemed like he was always intrigued by the California lifestyle and academics in Cali.  Good for the young man in following his dream as it takes a lot of guts to take his path in life rather than making an easy choice because it was the most comfortable (i.e., being close to family and friends, etc.).

  97. 1mandawgpack

    Hobnailboot aka RobG Jay212033  No, once DRob signed the FA paperwork, coaches had unlimited contact with him and could openly discuss their contact with him in the recruiting process.  I believe that CKS is well-versed on the recruiting rules “dos and don’ts”

  98. Bansai buckeroo

    @Brooklyndawg…. Logically Georgia made the most sense. But I guess you can throw logic out the window when it comes to 18 year old kids…. Anyway I’m just glad this soap opera is over.

  99. Brooklyndawg

    Didn’t say huge. What would be huge would be an announcement that this was a faux ceremony and both him and his sister are going to UGA, for her well being.###

  100. DawgDaddy

    MMCSDAWG funny thing is if he settles in Georgia after college   there would have been more open doors to him as he starts out in life.   Not implying he will not be a success but getting started would have been so much easier. IMO

  101. GaSoldier

    Well that didn’t go the direction I was expecting. The kid is California dreaming…

  102. Brooklyndawg

    And I’m NOT going to follow where his twin sister goes to school!!!!!!!!!!

  103. rugbydawg79

    TtownDawg Good Luck to him – he obviously wants to get away – lets all wish him well – come on Charlie Woerner !

  104. ZippyMorocco

    Greg Poole Bansai buckeroo 
    I got in a little trouble doing that dance, back in the day.

  105. Brooklyndawg

    All I can say is….so much for my locked down source last Thursday night! Wait’ll I see him THIS Thursday! Dang

  106. BahitsDawg

    TtownDawg lol, yeap.  Maybe a little I am going to make you pay in there.

    Plus, I like that he will be a small thorn in USCw’s side.  I despise that school as much as USCe.

  107. TtownDawg

    He can now go play against his dream school for the next 3 or 4 years…smh!

  108. BahitsDawg

    Brooklyndawg If I were him, I would have my ticket ready and have someone (not his brother) drop me off at the airport and never look back.

  109. Brooklyndawg

    You gotta wonder, what did he expect??? Sorry, talk sbout naive. He’d have been better off just announcing at his HS and letting it go at that. This is like one of those real bad Academy Award jokes where tha audience is shown looking around in disbelief.

  110. Jay212033

    Nope because Kirby had unlimited contact with him but him signing the FA paperwork.

  111. Score Check

    Looking at the glass as half full…  This probably increases our odds of signing a big time WR for 2017.


    Well the drob saga has finally come to an end! Good luck to him and hope he is able to achieve his goals at Cal. Our receiving Corp looks good and we will survive without him. Go DAWGS!

  113. 1Dawg under God

    BahitsDawg Bansai buckeroo I don’t think anyone is too happy with it tbh.

  114. RumRunnerDoogie

    BahitsDawg Bansai buckeroo the crows went wild with the sound of 4 people clapping

  115. BahitsDawg

    Bansai buckeroo I don’t think his coach was all that happy with this choice.

  116. RumRunnerDoogie

    Greg Poole RumRunnerDoogie idk do they still have that tree behind the stadium filled with hippies saving it?

  117. Bansai buckeroo

    Finally we can all move on…..that was a little weird but good luck to the young man

  118. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole makes you think that he was always about leaving Georgia and some of the family.  I don’t know but that was a strange presser and the reaction was absolutely a dud.

  119. Greg Poole

    RumRunnerDoogie  They probably won’t. They are gonna continue the hype, what else do they have?

  120. BahitsDawg

    Hobnailboot aka RobG 1Dawg under God It is probably a blessing for our program that we don’t have to deal with that brother of his.

    Best wishes to Drob.  It was interesting.

  121. 1Dawg under God

    Hey can’t blame the kid he wants to go where defense is irrelevant and offense is wide open lol

  122. Greg Poole

    Bulldawg Bob2 I think tech would have been a better choice strictly for engineering. This kid is getting away from home…and that’s ok.

  123. RumRunnerDoogie

    Bulldawg Bob2 RumRunnerDoogie yea i just figured it would be ND before it was cal

  124. DawgDaddy

    Did he just say “the love” was much more in Georgia so he just had to kind of ignore it?  I thought kids wanted to feel “the love”  lol

  125. Bulldawg Bob2

    1Dawg under God  Cal has one of the top engineering programs in the country and doesn’t have the stringent requirements as Stanford

  126. RumRunnerDoogie

    BahitsDawg 1Dawg under God yea our WRs are set, going to a irrelevant team loll

  127. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Does this mean UGA committed minor recruiting violations for Kirby talking about DRob and him not committing

  128. BahitsDawg

    1Dawg under God lol, yeah, but I am glad it isn’t a rival.  Our WR TE chore is really strong regardless.

    As a former art major, I’m going to have to say that’s one painting I would never hang in my house.

  130. Brooklyndawg

    With this crowd and UGA players attending, I don’t think he’s announcing for ND or Cal…jmho

  131. Greg Poole

    DawgLink  Too obvious….could be tech…..or it could be a red velvet cake when sliced

  134. Brooklyndawg

    Seeing elsewhere crowd already starting in, podium is up. Actual announcement between 1 and 1:30 and with his HS there, there’ll be speeches

  135. DawgJerms

    My name is Jeremy. Been called Jerms my entire life. Even still today. It all works out

  136. Brooklyndawg

    The smart coaches everywhere will negative recruit, using this as a hashtag….thanks Butch….lol

  137. DawgJerms

    I went to school w/ AJ and his wife at Johnson. AJ was a great fullback & middle linebacker. I remember him being one of the first that I’ve seen that the bar would bend when he bench pressed. He was a senior my freshman year. He was a beast in football. His younger and older brothers were too.

  138. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Coaches to recruits “Go to Tennessee if you don’t want to play in the NFL”….SMH, LOL

  139. Brooklyndawg

    He’s way past an LOI. He’s a whatever he chooses only once he officially enrolls, and not before.

  140. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Bansai buckeroo  I’d rather cut your grass too Bansai than watch rasslin’

  141. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Bulldawg36  he won’t be an anything until he enrolls wherever he decides, that is assuming this is only a verbal commitment thing and he is not signing a LOI

  142. Brooklyndawg

    I think you’re spot on with this one. This is appropo of why my alma mater, U of Md, left the ACC for the Big 10, not enough exposure. PS they finally beat Johns Hopkins in men’s lacrosse!

  143. RobDawg

    I wonder if he may blossom in NFL and blow up like others before him? I know he is very young and may develop so I hope those guys making business decisions in NFL recognize something there. When I say others before him look at Justin Houstin and Geno Atkins. Who called that they would be superstars when they were drafted? All that being said I was happy for him to go so high but surprised

  144. Greg Poole

    Brooklyndawg I don’t see the ACC Net happening. ESPN is not going to risk another Longhorn Network disaster. ACC football is a not a draw throughout the footprint and  college basketball does not produce big number during the regular season.

    Of course, I’m often wrong.

  145. dsw61

    1mandawgpack Good thoughtful post. As a parent of college and HS kids though, my first thought when it comes to Drob’s decision making process is that it wasn’t very well planned out. If Stanford was his dream school, then someone should have been advising him to cut back on some of his extracurricular sports related stuff and focus more on academics. Maybe cut out basketball and just play football and run track. Maybe cut back on the camp circuit some. If academics was a priority, why did he originally commit to Bama? That had to be more of a football decision than an academic decision. If being close to his Mom was important, why the interest in the California schools? His recruitment seems to have been all over the place. Although if he picks Georgia he ends up hitting the trifecta…close to Mom…respected academics…high level football program with a potentially elite QB. So he would end up where he probably should be all things considered.

    My only point is that I would not recommend this approach to the typical college athlete. IMO it’s better for the kids to get the decision out of the way a little earlier. My daughter’s a Junior in HS and already has her SAT and ACT test done with scores that will allow her to go pretty much anywhere. She’s been taking multiple AP classes since she was a freshman in HS, along with taking the accompanying AP tests. I actually have a lot of respect for the football players that early enroll. Those kids have to have a plan to pull that off.

    Brooklyndawg  There are no links – it is a response on Twitter to the post of this page. I assume he is referring to the Hubbard video above.

  147. Bansai buckeroo

    I have its on good inside information that he will pick us……or someone else…… 🙂

    You gonna rent the WWE event today? Ole AJ Styles from Gainesville GA will be wrestling for the belt today!

  149. Reddawg13

    Rickpope2330 all I have is a good friend at the gym is close to a UGA I won’t name, and that Coach told him D Rob is our’s! But, we all know how that works,lol.

  150. Bulldawg36

    They should of drafted him tho! I believe Mayes was worthy of a 6th or 7th round pick

  151. Reddawg13

    Greg Poole Hating to type this, but yes I think so, unless he is going to be nothing but a situation player.

  152. 1mandawgpack

    Score Check 1mandawgpack  I’m not trying to “church” anyone up, but am a bit weary of seeing grown men berate this young man (not inferring you, just in general based upon reading multiple posts about it) for trying to use sound judgment in making a very hard decision that will directly impact the rest of his life.

  153. PTCDawg

    Greg Poole well, its yet another example of someone exploiting his statistics without any consideration for his stats being skewed by the role he was asked to play. It may or may not be a reach but I believe using his stats to make his case is rather silly.

  154. ZippyMorocco

    They are saying Sgt. Carter’s first class aren’t seniors. It’s Dooley’s fault.

  155. Bulldawg36

    Quick ride home. Don’t have to stop at any traffic lights or stop signs. Lol

    Thank’s for Churching us up on this glorious Sunday morning;  🙂

  157. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Bulldawg Bob2  so 14 Bulldogs are going to get a shot in the league….that’s awesome

  158. Bansai buckeroo

    Even Tech had a couple of people drafted….the Volnuts should be ashamed….

  159. 1mandawgpack

    I know a lot of people will be happy that the DRob saga ends today (hopefully).  Personally, I applaud this young man as he approached recruiting the correct way – consider academics first and football second.  I personally believe that many recruits choose schools simply for football with little regard for academics because they see college as a temporary stop on the way to the league.  However, as the past several days have proven, only a select few actually make it to the league, and some who are already there are cutting their playing days short over long-term health concerns.  DRob’s decision making process was never about directing attention his way – to the contrary, he has mostly laid low out of direct sight of the media.  So, while I would be ecstatic if he chooses our beloved Dawgs, I respect the young man for the maturity that he has displayed and the priorities on which he has focused during his recruiting process and wish him well regardless of his decision.

    I wonder how the snake-oil salesman is going to spin this.

    Sometimes you have to look in the mirror. He knew what system AU ran when he signed with them. No compassion from me

  162. PTCDawg

    Happy DRob Day dawgnation! Three years of Eason throwing and Woerner and DRob catching is a very cool thought!!!

    Colonial Dawg  Hey Colonial. Have a safe trip and enjoy the visit.

    And yes. I could be wrong, but I think Demetris Robertson picks UGA today.

  164. Colonial Dawg

    Headed up to Fredericksburg to visit my son.  Will miss the Robertson announcement.  Any chance he picks the good guys even if I’m not watching?

  165. Greg Poole

    DawgDaddy   Yes sir. It was a good trip. I’m ready to get back in the groove.

  166. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole Good morning and welcome back, hope you got your batteries fully charged now.   A little R&R and family time is always good.

    Greg Poole  Good morning and welcome back to the greatest state in these United States of America
