  1. ToddBrazzell

    Lucas Rogers Bulldawg36 I loved that game so much I actually felt bad for Colt Brennon – he got destroyed.

  2. ToddBrazzell

    Lucas Rogers Pittman alone will change the dynamics of GA bulldogs football.  I think the O line was Richt’s biggest downfall and stunted the QB growth.  And I am not bashing Richt, I love him as a coach.  Just hope we are moving in the right direction and i think we are.

  3. ToddBrazzell

    Greg Poole i would be more worried about these satellite camps under Richt than I am under Smart.  Smart is a more relentless recruiter than Richt and his staff ever was.  I will reserve my comments for coaching until i see it on the field, but already seeing it in the recruiting battles.

  4. ToddBrazzell

    Drew Brees never had more than 4,000 yards under Chaney at Purdue.  I doubt very seriously if Eason achieves that landmark his freshman year much less his career.  15 touchdowns is achievable but the yards are way out there.  How about at 4 to 1 ratio on TD vs. picks… that is something that is attainable but not easily accomplished.

  5. RumRunnerDoogie

    PTCDawg RumRunnerDoogie or it was emotional because u dont have to pay the tuition anymore### haha yea i bet that was a hell of a experience

  6. Doc R

    PTCDawg Congrats, man!!!!   My daughter graduated from Belmont Univ.  2 weeks ago,  Summa Cum Laude, I might add!!   Great feeling watching our offspring reach goals like that

  7. PTCDawg

    RumRunnerDoogie PTCDawg the most unexpected thing, Rum…the convocation, where she actually walked across the stage and had her name called…was a fairly ordinary was the commencement in the stadium with 30,000 people there, and she is one of 5,500 on the field…that was when it was really quite emotional….i guess because she was wearing her cap and gown and it was really the last thing…the emotion caught me  by surprise though…

  8. Bulldawg36

    He said Jacob would throw for 5000 but only 15 TDs..that doesn’t match with that many yards…ill say 27tds

  9. RumRunnerDoogie

    and the curse strikes again

  10. DawgDaddy

    ZippyMorocco It really was not bad at all.  I get my results tomorrow.  The last b/p they took before letting me go home was 138/82 with a 56 pulse.   Not bad at all for a 68 y/o.

  11. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole Lucas Rogers first time I have watched his video, he is strong!  Would look good in red & black.

  12. RumRunnerDoogie

    UGADAWGII RumRunnerDoogie Greg Poole ahh that robert E lee school in S.C. has the same logo


    RumRunnerDoogie Greg Poole I think that is in Georgia…. Trent Thompson territory.

  14. RumRunnerDoogie

    Greg Poole lol so a camp at the powerhouse of south carolina…bet a lot of under recruited players there##

  15. ZippyMorocco

    BenKellam MMCSDAWG Brooklyndawg Greg Poole 
    I never knock a UGA player unless I think he isn’t trying.

  16. RumRunnerDoogie

    MMCSDAWG as if NFL teams didnt make enough money they charge the military to have flags on the field? lol unreal

  17. Lucas Rogers

    Also landing him will help land teammate Jamaree Salyer who Georgia REALLY needs. I do not want this guy to be on another team

  18. Bansai buckeroo

    @Lucas….Don’t forget DRob…..he’s still in the mix…..should be showing up at Georgia any day now…####… 🙂


    Lucas Rogers MMCSDAWG I know…  i don’t count them at all until they officially commit to the G!

  20. Greg Poole

    Lucas Rogers There are only a few reasons to be a silent and one is to provide an easy out.

  21. dsw61

    Greg Poole I love all this mobility talk from Kirby. It’s the key to good QB play IMO. I’m looking forward to the QBs breaking the pocket when the defense gives them space to run. If the QBs are just taught to do what Bill Walsh describes in this clip; QB play should improve a lot.

  22. Lucas Rogers

    MMCSDAWG Lucas Rogers wouldn’t surprise me. I don’t count too much on silents though just cause they honestly can change so quickly. Tre Nixon supposedly silently committed to UGA, Derrick Brown too


    Lucas Rogers Wonder if he is one of those “silents”….  There has been a rumor he was.

  24. Lucas Rogers

    Was talking with Andrew Thomas (2017 OT from Pace). He told me he will be visiting Georgia on  May 29th. He also said that Georgia is his leader. Him and Netori are my favorite OL. Netori is already in the fold, and I think Andrew will be too by the time it is over. With Georgia already leading and him visiting again, it should give Georgia a chance to really increase their lead. He told me he wants to take his officials before committing anywhere though.


    Lucas Rogers MMCSDAWG dsw61 Gotta represent up their among all those delusional hillbillies!

  26. Greg Poole

    Lucas Rogers  Spill it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. Lucas Rogers

    MMCSDAWG Lucas Rogers dsw61 yeah I’m getting this cool Georgia thing kind of like it


    Lucas Rogers dsw61 Nice, you could make one similarly with Black and Red stripes and a Bulldawg logo where the star is on a silver background!


    Greg Poole yeah and Clemson is #108…   not a lot of weight in this particular method.

  30. ZippyMorocco

    Greg Poole 
    That’s by win/loss. ESPN has it at 17.
    A few years ago a Hog fan said they had #1. Ark State had a better record than Clemsion


    Lucas Rogers dsw61 What happened to that really nice looking young woman you had around?  I believe that is something she should take the lead on! haha


    AlphaDawg Bansai buckeroo We are getting older Alpha…  Those little Ipad screens aren’t going to cut it… lol##  need it plugged into at least a 55 inch screen!

  33. AlphaDawg

    Bansai buckeroo Well for $2 a month you can put an iPad in front of her with Feeln and she can watch all day

  34. Bulldawg36

    I want a defense that can sack the qb like we did Colt Brennon of Hawaii!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  35. Greg Poole

    MMCSDAWG Econ 101 – If they are losing customers and raise prices, demand will fall further.

    Comcast has already made investments in streaming. The key is to be a media company and not a cable company.

  36. AlphaDawg

    ZippyMorocco RumRunnerDoogie Greg Poole My wife doesn’t turn off the Hallmark channel during Christmas season

  37. AlphaDawg

    ZippyMorocco RumRunnerDoogie Greg Poole LOL there’s actually an app….I sadly admit I had to investigate when we were looking to cut the cable. Good news is it’s only $24 a year. Feeln is the name of it

  38. RumRunnerDoogie

    Brooklyndawg Bansai buckeroo i see where the yankee front office has thrown the team under the bus for the performance so far

  39. Brooklyndawg

    Bansai buckeroo Call me “CRAZY”? OK, you’re full of crap, I think that the O-line, with an actual presence by the tight ends (thanks for nothin’, Schotty), will hold their own.

  40. Greg Poole

    ZippyMorocco They are probably streamed already on services like Hulu or Amazon Prime.


    Greg Poole Sure would be nice to have something like that, my concern currently would be when is there going to be competition for the Internet you’ll need to stream this type of platform throughout your home.   currently the only reliable and big enough internet provider we have here is Comcast.  So if there is a significant decline in cable customers, wouldn’t they in turn raise the price of there stand alone internet services to offset some of the differences?  I like the looks of the Google thing, but that is decades from being national.

  42. RumRunnerDoogie

    ZippyMorocco RumRunnerDoogie Greg Poole its nice not having a ball and anchor sometimes

  43. Bansai buckeroo

    Oh I’m not top….but I was hoping someone would tell me I was full of crap and had nothing to worry about….where are your friends when you need them…###….:-)


    PTCDawg The major concern I have in tempering my expectation just a little bit is our lack of depth and experience at some very key positions.  However, if we stay healthy and don’t lose anymore players between now and Sept, then I too would expect a 10-2 record is totally achievable and the possibility of 11 wins is not something that I would consider delusional either.  There will be growing pains, but I expect Kirby and this staff to be ready and functioning on all cylinders by the time we welcome UTk to town!   Kirby has absolutely blown me away with his recruiting prowess and his ability to change the dynamic among our recruiting class, but the one thing that probably made me even happier was to see the choices he made for his coaching staff.  He mixed experience, skill, recruiting, style and personality beautifully!   This staff is NOTHING like last years staff, especially on the offensive side of the ball.  I also loved the hire of M. Tucker, I know some doubted him, but I will say first hand, I like his coaching style and I believe he is an excellent coordinator.  I live in Jax and loved him while he was here as our DC!

  45. Greg Poole

    Bansai buckeroo  Don’t assume the OL is ready for prime time – depth could be an issue again.

  46. BenKellam

    MMCSDAWG Brooklyndawg Greg Poole Is it against the rules to have him play on a hoverboard? He wont actually have to move his legs that way.

  47. Bansai buckeroo

    My biggest concern this year is the D-line… We are very young…these youngsters are going to have to step it up…or my 10 win prediction may be just a little optimistic…


    Brooklyndawg Greg Poole Pretty sure he saw what happens first hand last year when Lambert is put under pressure in the pocket.  He looked like a scared cat during the Bama game last year while kirby was the DC!   He’s been doing this now for almost 5 years in college and for 10 or more before that, if he hasn’t acquired the skill of escaping the pocket by now, it’s not going to change between now and Sept.   Please don’t think I’m bashing Lambert, I’m not!  i really appreciate what he was able to do for us last year and he has been a DGD since arriving on campus last August!

  49. Bansai buckeroo

    Zippy, I wouldn’t mind paying a little more if they weren’t wasting so much money. But the government is worse than my wife..##…. Haha

  50. ZippyMorocco

    Bansai buckeroo 
    Since this is a no politics site, I won’t name the candidates. Based upon their proposals, I would pay
    $1K more with candidate A, $7K less with candidate B, and $11K more with candidate C.

    Guess who gets my vote.

  51. Bansai buckeroo

    Yes…keeping me in the style which I have become accustomed…thanks Alpha…. 🙂

  52. Bansai buckeroo

    Yeah I guess so. Just saw a special on him Sunday. No indication he was in poor health. I use to say that would be my luck. Dying right after retiring. So far so good…haha

  53. RumRunnerDoogie

    Bansai buckeroo when u can work till 84 at a job, i dont think that would classify as hard work lol. but sucks to hear


    Bansai buckeroo Bad news, but that’s exactly the reason you shouldn’t work until your 80 something!  Thoughts go out to the family!

  55. Bansai buckeroo

    Morley Safer of 60 minutes fame dies at age 84. He just retired last week . Man that timing sucks. I would be pi$$ed….


    dsw61 MMCSDAWG Greg Poole Wow…  That sounds like a good way to get your mind right in a hurry!

  57. BenKellam

    Greg Poole Why did he need to resort to insider trading? Don’t golfers at his level make a fortune? I imagine KPMG pay him a pretty penny to wear that visor.

  58. PTCDawg

    I suppose I am a delusional fan because I think we should do no worse than 10-2 given we are, in the one set of lines I have seen, favored by at least 7 in 10 of our 12 games. the closest line we had was one that had us as an underdog, +4.5 to UT I think. So, not sure why it is delusional to think 11-1 is entirely reasonable, but ok.
    I would think the many folks who think we were barely able to tie our shoes last year due to the ineptness of the previous staff would be confident of being much better this year than our lousy results from last year.

  59. RealtorDawg (aka 10canpirate)

    Greg Poole It’s called Koolaiditisatosis…It’s the sensation you get when you mix the end of spring practice and a good recruiting class along with blogging with others who are afflicted with the same disease.  Symptoms include but not limited to lack of sleep, drinking, drinking more than usual, blogging at all hours of the day and night, lack of concentration and productivity at work, lack of sex drive until the fall and a need of belonging.  Symptoms fade about the middle of August.  The disease lies dormant until April of the following year.

  60. Bansai buckeroo

    That’s why he’s paid the big bucks…… Gives a list 95% of the people here could have come up with….##


    Greg Poole MMCSDAWG Dang boss, this going going to be the Best Kool-aid EVER!  haha!

  62. Greg Poole

    MMCSDAWG Will EverClear go with these mushrooms I picked out by the Dairy Cow Experiment Station off Lexington Rd.?

  63. Greg Poole

    Kool-Aid brain warp #1:

    Georgia goes undefeated in regular season but loses to Bama (by a point) in the SECCG – gets relegated to a crappy Florida bowl

  64. Greg Poole

    I’m brewing a fresh batch of Oconee River water Kool-Aid. A Kool-Aid bender is coming on – I can’t feel the need

  65. Greg Poole

    UGADAWGII So will I and, yes, that is what I meant. CKS will be Saban-like or Muschamp-like, not Richt-like. Right now, the little things he is doing suggests Saban-like to me.

  66. Greg Poole

    RumRunnerDoogie  The policy requires suspension but does not specify which games. Maybe Kirby will be creative in applying marijuana suspensions.

  67. Greg Poole

    UNC is not interested in G-Day:

    “You’re going to be very vanilla just as we were very vanilla in ours,” North Carolina coach Larry Fedora said. “We don’t spend a whole lot of time with that. We’ll spend more time looking at what Alabama did on defense (under Smart), what Arkansas did on offense (under offensive coordinator Jim Chaney and line coach Sam Pittman) and even expand it beyond that. No matter what they’ve done in the past, they’re still going to mold the offense and defense around the talent that they have.”


    Greg Poole Natrez has been a HUGE sleeper from the 2015 class,  whoever picked him has hit the nail on the head!  Natrez gets it and I’m excited to see what he can do this year!

  69. RumRunnerDoogie

    MMCSDAWG Greg Poole lol the auburn one kind of made me laugh for the reason he gave


    Greg Poole Auburn and Texas A&M in the top 25????  I don’t care where UGA is ranked in any “pre-season” poll, but I don’t believe we are behind Auburn or Texas A&M  at all!   So we are the under DAWGS!  I like being under Dawgs!


    Lucas Rogers Frankly Bulldawg36 I hear he is going to be back on campus again this weekend with his Dad…  his mom has already been to UGA!!!!


    Greg Poole Which goes directly against the stated Mission statement of the NCAA.  “Our purpose is to govern competition in a fair, safe, equitable and sportsmanlike manner, and to integrate intercollegiate athletics into higher education so that the educational experience of the student-athlete is paramount.”

    Fair, Safe and equitable????   Not so much IMO!


    Greg Poole He’s definitely #1 2017 recruit for me!  This kid is getting it done on the recruiting trail and is a hell of a football player~!

  74. RumRunnerDoogie

    willypmd i thought about getting into anesthesiology in some form a few years ago until i saw all the pre reqs and decided EMT was enough haha

  75. willypmd

    good luck with everything. I am an anesthesiologist so I have a particular interest in this. the no coffee for stress test seems reasonable, nothing to eat or drink pre-op is outdated. we recommend clear liquids up to two hours before surgery (includes coffee with no cream) and no solids 7 hours pre-op. lots of new data says clear liquid actually speeds emptying of the gut and in fact having a clear liquid with calories (clearfast is a product specifically designed for this, but Gatorade is a cheaper alternative if you can’t get clearfast) helps speed return of gut function and decreases the catabolic stress response so you heal better after surgery. your Anesthsiology group needs to update their fasting guidelines


    Greg Poole I would but because I’m a Georgia fan, but IMHO Coach Kirby Smart will have a very difficult time matching Coach Richt’s initial success at UGA.  Let’s not forget that CMR took over an 8-4 Georgia team and went to the SEC championship game 3 of the next 5 years, winning 2 SEC Championships.  I don’t think anyone is predicting or expecting similar results for CKS, nor should they.

  77. Bulldawg36

    If don’t hurry up and get a commit! I’m gonna go sit out in the rain till number one wr in the state commits to the G!

  78. Bansai buckeroo

    The stock market has been kicking my butt the last few days… Thank goodness for @AlphaDawg….. 🙂

  79. Greg Poole

    I think that depends on how well he is punting rather than where he is on the quarterback depth chart.
    They will not hesitate to use the second string QB as a punter IMHO

  80. Lucas Rogers

    ronaldo77 Lucas Rogers hmm might depends on how good Marshall Long is. Chances of Ramsey getting hurt out there are slim, so don’t think its too much of a risk with him punting. It’s also nice having him back there just because the team has to play safe since he is a QB.

  81. ronaldo77

    Lucas Rogers If Ramsey does well and becomes the 2nd string, do you still see him being punter? In my mind, Lambert would be 3rd by the UNC game.


    ronaldo77 MMCSDAWG My sleeper, someone no one really talks about that I believe will be a major contributor before it’s all said and done is  Tyrique McGhee.  this kid  has some natural skills playing CB that you just can’t teach.  I think he is going to be a major contributor before it’s all said and done!

  83. Bansai buckeroo

    @dsw61… That’s great news…I think genetics plays a big part in it and of course taking care of your heath. The good part about mine was there was little to no damage. It’s been 8 years now and I have no symptoms. Having several uncles die in their early sixties, I feel very fortunate .


    ronaldo77 MMCSDAWG Anyone that has followed my posts over the last few years knows, I am HUGE on the kicking game and it’s importance!  Kicking game accounts for an avg of 7-8 points per game!  Statistics show the chances of scoring points drastically decreases the further your offensive drive starts from the goal line!   Good One!

  85. ronaldo77

    MMCSDAWG Someone who is never really talked about, but will play a big part this year is Marshell Long. For better or for worse, he will probably be our punter this year.


    ZippyMorocco MMCSDAWG Greg Poole Bansai buckeroo I misread what you were saying, I thought you were saying no coffee from now until after the surgury!  Just going a full day is rough!

  87. ZippyMorocco

    MMCSDAWG ZippyMorocco Greg Poole Bansai buckeroo 
    I can’t have anything to eat or drink after Midnight on Monday. I guess they don’t me throwing up or pooping.

  88. BenKellam

    ZippyMorocco Trent Smallwood And I would bet we land 4 or 5 of the uncommitted guys at the top of the list.


    ZippyMorocco Greg Poole Bansai buckeroo

    Why no coffee zip?  Dang that’s rough!


    Ok…  so who’s your Sleeper in the class of 2016?  Who is flying under the radar so to speak and that you believe will have the biggest impact during their time in Athens?

  91. dsw61

    Bansai buckeroo I hope I never have to experience it. Neither my Dad or Mom had heart issues. I eat very healthy, and my annual blood work for health insurance discount purposes, always comes back really good. I always have some chest discomfort though because I lift weights three times a week, and the muscles around my rib cage always ache some. Some times that ache gets my attention, but I’ve kind of learned to live with it.

  92. ZippyMorocco

    Greg Poole Bansai buckeroo 
    I get a new knee on Tuesday. The biggest problem is no Sumatran until the surgery is over.

  93. Bansai buckeroo

    I’m holding at the moment and will jump in when and if I like the 4th quarter results….

  94. dsw61

    Greg Poole  Statements like this without context are misleading at best:
    “Last season, though, Tennessee led Alabama by a point with less than five minutes to go in Tuscaloosa before Jake Coker led a game-winning scoring drive. So the difference in Tennessee and Alabama isn’t monumental – not now.”

    I watched that game. Tennessee was coming off a bye week…which is what most teams try to do the week before playing Bama. Leading up to the Tennessee game, Bama had played seven straight games. The three games prior to Tennessee were against Georgia on the road, Arkansas, and A&M on the road. It was plain as day to me that Bama was tired in the Tennessee game. After the Tennessee game Bama had their bye week…and then played LSU. I watched that game also and they were clearly rested and it showed as they totally dominated LSU.

    This season both Tennessee and Bama will have played six straight games prior to their meeting. The three games prior to the Bama game has Tennessee playing Florida, Georgia on the road, and A&M on the road. Tennessee’s bye week this year comes after the Bama game. It wouldn’t surprise me if Pruitt’s Bama defense shuts down Tennessee’s offense this year. Georgia’s defense actually played well against Tennessee early on in last year’s game…but the dang offense couldn’t stay on field to give the defense a breather. Jenkins was also hurt that game and didn’t play much.

  95. Greg Poole

    It’s raining in Athens… That means Charter takes a break. Luckily Verizon is still going.

  96. dsw61

    Greg Poole I wonder where the author of this article gets his information. Fans who are excited about Kirby, the new coaching staff, and newcomers like Eason; are simply excited about the direction of the program. I seriously doubt a high percentage of fans are expecting much more than 9-3 or 10-2 season. Tennessee may actually be the more delusional fan base. It will be interesting how Tennessee handles the added pressure that comes with high expectations.

  97. Reddawg13

    Bansai buckeroo me and a little girl that I was friends with found a gun in the glove box of her Dad’s car and I shot a hole through the floor and into the transmission. Red was lucky that day too. Of course her mom and my mom, sh%&! themselves!

  98. Reddawg13

    Greg Poole I am trying to tell y’all it will be Eason. If not it will be Ramsey. Lambert is NOT the guy.

  99. Bulldawg36

    Stick a fork in the diamond dawgs more than likely. Least they’re better than the braves tho

  100. Bansai buckeroo

    @dsw61…had a heart attack in 2008. Had all the classic symptoms…believe me it’s something you want to try and avoid…haha

  101. dsw61

    Colonial Dawg DawgDaddy  I thought I might have been having a heart attack one time too. I was really dizzy and had some chest discomfort. Ended up at the ER where the first thing they do is blood work to test for a heart attack. When that came back negative it was off to the tread mill for the stress test. About 8 minutes into it after increasing the incline a couple of times the cardiologist asked me how I was feeling. Told it it was the best I’d felt all day. Don’t think she was thrilled with that answer, but it was the truth. Blood work eventually showed a raised white blood cell count and they determined I had an inner ear infection.

  102. Greg Poole

    Bansai buckeroo  Caffeine is my last addiction and coffee is my delivery system of choice


    Bansai buckeroo Yeah, you were kind of young.  Maybe your mom gave your dad the punishment for leaving a loaded gun within reach of a youngin!


    Colonial Dawg DawgDaddy I’m pretty sure what they did to you would give me a heart attack!  My body would completely shut down and stop functioning!


    1mandawgpack Greg Poole Me too, definitely a buy!  Might not pay record dividends this year, but UGA is definitely a stock on the rise.  I want to get in now before the base price go up!


    Jesse1 Greg Poole And they play them the week before coming to Athens!  This might be the only time in my history of watching SEC football that I wouldn’t mind seeing UF win!  lol

  107. Colonial Dawg

    DawgDaddy The worst part is the headache from no coffee or breakfast.  Last July I was in the ER with what I thought was a heart attack late at night.  I was admitted and they did a stress test, but they didn’t get it done until after 3 PM the next day.  I had ice chips and nothing else until then.  Plus I had a nitro glycerin drip which is the headache from hell anyway.  That first cup of coffee was heavenly!!

  108. Bansai buckeroo

    Morning DDaddy……I’ve learned you have to make those appointments early if you are having to fast…haha. You having any symptoms or just routine exam?

  109. 1mandawgpack

    Greg Poole  I’d buy – not for short-term gains, but for long-term potential.  CKS is relentless in his recruiting and work ethic and it won’t take more than a couple of years for him to build the type of depth that he is seeking and to which he is accustomed.  I know he hasn’t coached a single game as a head coach and will certainly have some growing pains, but his teams will arrive prepared and ready to play.  For those reasons, I think UGA is a buy and hold (long-term) stock that will produce substantial gains in the next 3 – 5 years.

  110. DawgDaddy

    Top ‘o the Morn to Dawgs Everywhere!

    I am having a chemical Stress Test today at 11:30 so the doctor told me not to eat or have anything to drink other than water this morning. Not having my coffee is awful! That is why I tried to sleep late so as not to have to face not having my cup or 3 of black joe.


    rugbydawg79 Greg Poole Jesse1 AMEN! to that one, these past two years have been unbearable!  The last of which got was the nail in the coffin of our previous staff!  #ATD (Attack the day & Attention to Detail)!!!

  112. Bansai buckeroo

    @Chief …..No whipping….maybe because of my age and the sheer stupidity of leaving a gun where I could find it…. I think relief was the emotion mostly felt..haha


    Bansai buckeroo OOOOOOHHHHH….   Did your Butt hurt after your daddy got a hold of you?  My dad caught me messing around with his guns one time, about age 10 or so, I didn’t walk right for a week!

  114. Jesse1

    Greg Poole Jesse1 When a team beats you in a close one, and gets pole axed the next week, you’re on the way. “Organized and rattles teeth.” I would add relentless and angry, those could be in the organized catagory. A team. And that is what most of us want to see. Not just the usual collection of great athletes who play when they want to.

  115. Greg Poole

    Jesse1  Georgia fans should be more interested in how this team plays rather than the record. The key to a successful season, to me, is to see a team that goes on the field 12 times ready to play, looks organized and rattles teeth. 
    There are weaknesses in the depth chart that could hurt badly with the wrong injuries but effort and talent are not the same thing. 
    I want to see a team that, if it loses, makes sure the opponent does not want to play it again. 

    Comment intended a soliloquy rather than a response. 🙂

  116. Jesse1

    Greg Poole Stop the press. Special edition coming. Flounders interested in a UGA player? Miracles never cease.

  117. Jesse1

    Greg Poole Probably. But, if this squad jells, comes together, and plays like it, who knows? Unbeaten season? Practically impossible. 3 of Bama’s last 4 nattie teams had a loss.

  118. Bansai buckeroo

    I did that at age four…Shotgun standing in the corner of the closet. I found it and pulled the trigger. Bansai is a very lucky fella…

  119. Greg Poole

    And if Georgia were a stock, I’m not ready to buy. Why would you? Kirby Smart might be another Will Muschamp. Or he might be another Mark Richt, who won the SEC in his second season in Athens. And who knows what true freshman Jacob Eason will do at quarterback, provided he wins the job.
    Florida has a lot of question marks. Georgia has a lot of questions marks. Tennessee has some question marks, but not as many as the Gators or Bulldogs.
