    Will be hard for him to get PT with who we have and who is probably coming next year. New school and poor completion.

  2. Lakedawg

    Been saying for months if we had a choice of the two than Mecole by far the better player.

  3. PatriotVeteran

    DawgDaddy Greg Poole    An he’s got class and willing to give more  to win a starting position.

  4. PatriotVeteran

    Score Check Greg Poole     He’s just looking for more attention.   If she stays…great, if not – others will do just fine

  5. TeeHDawg

    Not sure. But we do know Michel will be the first back to take a carry unless Chubb completely healthy.

  6. BahitsDawg

    Power, Balance and speed.  This kid actually reminds me of Chubb.

    Our O is going to be formidable between the bigger, badder OL, QB, WRs, TEs and more great RBs.  Hopefully, the play calling and coaching will match all this talent.  After last year and getting hyped up about CBS, I am a little burned, but I am starting on the kool-aid!

  7. BahitsDawg

    I love how we keep rolling them in, and they then get enough carries to get to the NFL.  Roll Dawgs, Roll!!!

  8. DawgDaddy

    Bulldawg36 I wanted him too, I am glad he left the South East if we were not his choice.

  9. Bulldawg36

    Drob ran faster time than Simmons and hardman. Man Drob has gained some speed since last year. Wish he would of came to UGA

  10. Bansai buckeroo

    Hey Rob…..just found out today will be going up to Canada in August to fish Walleye and Northern…..pumped

  11. RumRunnerDoogie

    BahitsDawg RumRunnerDoogie i think most recruiting services didnt bother with him since his grades

  12. BahitsDawg

    RumRunnerDoogie 247 has him as a 3 star.  I know it is meaningless, but I wonder if his commit would move us up in the 2016 class.   Also, still some Drob rumors floating around.  Don’t shoot me.

  13. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    DawgDaddy Hobnailboot aka RobG  it was a catch and release day today

  14. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    DawgDaddy Greg Poole  Chubb hops that high and outweighs him by 40 lbs at least

  15. Greg Poole

    DawgDaddy  He has not announced yet. I chatted with Dasher about him this afternoon and he thinks the clearinghouse will take a few days. I thought it might not take so long because there are no obvious red flags with his work (I posted the flags earlier today).

  16. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Greg Poole I’ll be glad when he can hop all the way to Cal…….

  17. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole I think we will be real happy with Mecole, if we could have only one I think we got the right one.

  18. TeeHDawg

    I think he competes also. Depending on Chubb’s health, he could be anywhere from 2nd to 4th on the depth chart. Other than learning the playboy and pass pro, I don’t see the typical things like small injuries holding him back. He is more than physically ready.

  19. Bulldawg Bob2

    I watched Holyfield in a couple of games last year and he looked SEC ready. I really think he comes in and competes well as a freshman.

  20. TeeHDawg

    Morning guys. I just saw that pic of Holyfield, that kid looks to be cut from stone. Amazing what hard work, a first rate trainer, and good genes can do for you.

  21. Colonial Dawg

    Greg Poole I realize they are called highlights for a reason, but the kid really looks like he has a good combination of balance, vision and speed.

  22. Bansai buckeroo

    Ok boys and girls….I have goofed off long enough…time to do some yard work…later

  23. Bansai buckeroo

    Well said Ed…Bob and his family have been going through some very tough times…prayers go out to his wife and the BB2 family…

  24. ed603

    Morning, BI. Only thing on my mind this morning is the well being of Mrs.BB2. Football can suddenly become very unimportant compared to life’s many issues most of us face on a daily basis. My sincere prayers for both of you, my friend! As matter of fact, best wishes & prayers to all our friends at BI who are having health issues in your famlies! GATA, FRIENDS!

  25. Bansai buckeroo

    Kind of slow this morning…..probably because people are not at work…haha

  26. Bansai buckeroo

    If we can get this kid, we will be set at qb for a few years…. Exciting times for our dawgs..

  27. Greg Poole

    Bansai buckeroo  He does and he is very at ease with himself and the media – reminds me of Sony in that regard.

  28. Bansai buckeroo

    Smh….this kid just can’t get out of his own way…now is paying the price…Hope he gets his life straightened out.”

  29. Bansai buckeroo

    Thanks Top…I don’t know how all that stuff works but it sounds like he is all dawg…

  30. Greg Poole

    Score Check  IO do not think he will need to go through the clearinghouse, will he?  He only improved his test score 2 points and his grades are all from his high school.

  31. Greg Poole

    Bansai buckeroo  Bob had a DM exchange yesterday that indicated he will be a Dawg. I doubt that he signs anything other than financial aid paperwork

  32. Score Check

    Bansai buckeroo
    Yep that’s Great news.  It looks like we are getting a REAL GOOD one.  I will feel much better once the NCAA gives their stamp of approval though.

  33. Score Check

    Bansai buckeroo
    Mark Richt was always in favor of eliminating Kick Offs due to high collision / high injury concerns.

  34. Score Check

    Typically how long does it take for the NCAA Clearinghouse to approve a transcript in a case like Herrien?
    It seems like we have been waiting forever for the NCAA to approve Mykelle McDaniel.

  35. Greg Poole

    This is Kearis Jackson from Peach County High School. He won his 100m heat with a time of 10.6

  36. Colonial Dawg

    Good morning from Virginia!  Have a great Saturday.  Go Dawgs!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole ZippyMorocco I agree with both of you, I am so glad he woke up barely in the nick of time to give himself a chance to make his life great.  Best of luck to him where ever he lands but I think he has done all it takes to become a DGD.

  38. Greg Poole

    ZippyMorocco  His is one if the good stories of the year and he is a good looking athlete also.

  39. ZippyMorocco

    Greg Poole 
    I’m so happy for him. The young man went the extra mile for 2 years in order to qualify.
