  1. Brooklyndawg

    RumRunnerDoogie Brooklyndawg Give it a year and the screams will be loud, Snyder over-paid AGAIN

  2. Brooklyndawg

    RumRunnerDoogie Hobnailboot aka RobG DawgLink Didn’t miss anything, barners scored a 3-run walkoff to win the darn thing. Sucks!

  3. Brooklyndawg

    RumRunnerDoogie Brooklyndawg Bulldawg Bob2 Too bad it wasn’t rained out, wash away the stench!!!!! How could they play a fine game one day, then just about throw the ball into the stands the next?

  4. RumRunnerDoogie

    anddd thats why UGA baseball is a joke…dude just stole home with no bunt or swing lol

  5. 66DAWGnNC

    I wouldn’t be too worried about him going to GT. After all, he will have another Reggie Ball throwing at him.

  6. RumRunnerDoogie

    Brooklyndawg it is what it is, apparently hes leaning UGA but his recruitment is beyond tiring

  7. RumRunnerDoogie

    Brooklyndawg RumRunnerDoogie Hobnailboot aka RobG DawgLink u guess, and i have no clue what the alternate channel is for secn

  8. Brooklyndawg

    RumRunnerDoogie Hobnailboot aka RobG DawgLink 8:35 was the new start time for BB game?

  9. Brooklyndawg

    DRob’s destination to be announced at the CFB HOF, in Atlanta, so his momma doesn’t have to travel as far (versus if it was at his HS). Some UGA panties already wadded up over fears that it’s in Atlanta because he’s going to GT, ghosts of Calvin Johnson.

  10. RumRunnerDoogie

    Hobnailboot aka RobG RumRunnerDoogie DawgLink well apparently they decided to talk about the uf vs uga baseball instead of showing the end of the softball game i cant watch..yayyy..

  11. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    RumRunnerDoogie DawgLink  forget that ball the announcer seems a little high

  12. RumRunnerDoogie

    ok this female commentator on this uga softball game sounds like 4/20 is still hitting her

  13. RumRunnerDoogie

    12 uga vs 2 auburn on secn since the uga vs uf baseball is in a rain delay. uga up 3-0

  14. RumRunnerDoogie

    DawgByte RumRunnerDoogie did last saturday and dont remember the 4th quarter of the spring game hhahaa

  15. RumRunnerDoogie

    Bulldawg Bob2 lmao we did something similar in ruby, but we could get away with it since we were the top HS program in the state and not a door mat like maryland

  16. Bulldawg Bob2

    dsw61 You and me both dsw61, and Mrs. BB2 would not be at all too happy with me either lol

  17. DawgByte

    BTW & FWIW Prince rocks! I’m still blown away that he’s passed. Drugs suck!!!!!!!!!!

    Our family is listening to a Prince playlist I put together and my kids are in awe at his range of music. Not many people know Prince was a huge Hendrix fan and put out an album in the ’90s focused on that style of music. It was brilliant and showcased how proficient Prince was as a guitarist. If you’re a fan of guitar you should look up his ode to Hendrix stuff.

  18. DawgByte

    Any Martini fans out there? I make a killer Martini. I do mine a little different 1/2 Gin & 1/2 Vodka. Super smooooooth and very tasty, indeed. I just fired one up and it’s working well. 


  19. WatkinsvilleDawg

    The size always helped but I’m now realizing once I hit 30 it was a whole new ballgame. Hangovers are 10x worse now.

  20. WatkinsvilleDawg

    I think that is the beach at the Sandals hotel between Ocho Rios and Montego Bay. Drank a lot of white rum the night before this pic was snapped.

  21. RumRunnerDoogie

    CLTDawg RumRunnerDoogie Bulltoad SEC yea, but its kind of unheard of firing a coach like richt with how he has been doing, regardless of winning the division or not

  22. WatkinsvilleDawg

    Good afternoon gents! It’s good to be back on Livefyre. The other system SUCKED! Y’all be good and GO DAWGS!!!!

  23. CLTDawg

    RumRunnerDoogie CLTDawg Bulltoad I think Saban knew Smart would go to an SEC job, and he’d take UGA if offered. I think it just surprised Saban that UGA offered when it did (aka that they fired Richt after a 10 win year). But I think Saban always knew Kirby was going to coach in the SEC.

  24. RumRunnerDoogie

    CLTDawg Bulldawg Bob2 well one thing is for sure, forearms sure would get a work out if its off balance lmao

  25. RumRunnerDoogie

    CLTDawg Bulltoad RumRunnerDoogie yea still have a hard time believing saban would think smart would end up at UGA

  26. CLTDawg

    Bulltoad RumRunnerDoogie Keep in mind that Saban didn’t come out in the media and say it. It was an interview with Kirby and Kirby said that Saban would tell him that back when they were both at Bama. That’s an important difference.

  27. RumRunnerDoogie

    CLTDawg Bulldawg Bob2 chubb is also quite shorter, not to mention near mabye 4% body fat

  28. CLTDawg

    Bulldawg Bob2 Lol Chubb’s arms are bigger than Wynns’! Dude second from the right has some pythons, though.

  29. 497dawg

    Bulldawg Bob2  Pretty serious set of wheels there, never saw anyone come close to catching him, even if they had the angle!

  30. RumRunnerDoogie

    DawgByte Bulldawg Bob2 bonsai buckeroo i see two most likely losses (as of now) in the SEC with tenn and ole miss

  31. DawgByte

    Bulldawg Bob2 bonsai buckeroo I don’t see 8-4. I think this team has the potential to be better than last years squad, particularly if Eason take the helm early on and holds down the starting spot with solid play.

  32. RumRunnerDoogie

    DawgByte RumRunnerDoogie Bulldawg Bob2 he just seemed to disappear in the televised games he was in last year, that senior RB thats at maryland now i think did most the work

  33. Bulldawg Bob2

    Bulltoad Bulldawg Bob2  Correct Bulltoad. The racers. The men’s basketball team had a game against them back in November.

  34. Bulldawg Bob2

    bonsai buckeroo  Realistically, I expect an 8-4 to 9-3 season. Anything over that is cake.

  35. Bulldawg Bob2

    bonsai buckeroo  Sic’em!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. haws1178

    1 loss is tolerable and that’s the Gday game loss. lol On a serious note. It will be more of how they perform not really the W or L column

  37. bonsai buckeroo

    Goooooo!!!!!!!! Dawgs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    (Just in case you guys were missing 36 today)

  38. bonsai buckeroo

    Crappy field for sure but I don’t think it was the reason for Chubbs injury….not from what I remember anyway…

  39. RumRunnerDoogie

    Bulltoad RumRunnerDoogie yea but now hes at a rival school, its the SEC after all

  40. AlphaDawg

    MMCSDAWG AlphaDawg Bulltoad I agree. but when you’re winning you’re so growing and bringing in more cash. It’s a revolving cycle.

  41. bonsai buckeroo

    @Chief…Finally using our tight ends again as well… coaches, new system, quarterback situation unsettled, just a few of the things that I will cut Kirby and company some slack this year……Next year will be different…he inherited a pretty good team after all …….

  42. AlphaDawg

    MMCSDAWG bonsai buckeroo We threw the ball a lot in the spring game. I sure have missed that.

  43. AlphaDawg

    BhamDawg5634 bonsai buckeroo Getting a win from UNC would set a solid tone for the season. Lose and everyone in the SEC writes off our future success. It’s great knowing Kirby will be more prepared for games than Richt (imo). I hope we keep it 2 or less. One not coming from UT.


    bonsai buckeroo I will tolerate what ever comes as long as I see a team out there busting their humps from first whistle to the last.  I want to see our team develop a nasty side, I want to see an offense that keeps the pedal to the metal, and a defense that can save us from time to time when our rookie QB makes a mistake.  I want a defense that creates turnovers.  We have a YOUNG team this year, so I’m willing to lose a few more games than last year, but honestly, I don’t expect it.

  45. BhamDawg5634

    bonsai buckeroo I am going to say 2-3.  I am not sure which teams it will be yet.  UNC could be one to start the year depending on the QB and the health of the team coming out of camp and if we have any suspensions from the spring fall out.  After that the only other team I worry about in the regular season is Old MIss in their house.

  46. bonsai buckeroo

    How many wins do you guys expect from the new regime this year?. Or maybe I should say how many losses will you tolerate?

  47. Doc R

    Bulldawg Bob2 I am not far from Auburn, and from what I hear, they are going after him hard

  48. Doc R

    BroDawg Bulltoad RumRunnerDoogie “These are NOT the 6’5″  335 lb. Defensive linemen you’re looking for….”


    AlphaDawg MMCSDAWG Bulltoad I personally don’t believe we will ever see the day that UGA is anywhere near UA in the “Anything” you want category.  UGA has worked hard to be recognized as a nationally recognized top 20 university and the post Jan Kemp mentality still lingers the halls of our offices.  I don’t think we have to reach nearly as far into the dumpster like Alabama did to achieve greatness in Athens.

  50. AlphaDawg

    MMCSDAWG Bulltoad Just wait until Kirby is winning. The difference at UGA is it’s a win first mentality, then you can have what you want. He’s going to have to prove that first, but once he does it will be smooth sailing.

  51. AlphaDawg

    Bulldawg Bob2 UGA video productions are cranking out videos every day it seems. It’s hard to keep track of all of them these days

  52. TeeHDawg

    Bulldawg Bob2 TeeHDawg   I agree. they will rotate the front 7 a good bit.

    Also, I feel they should move Roquan around between LB, S, and Nickel. He is a player that we haven’t had since Thomas Davis.

  53. Bulltoad

    Bulldawg Bob2 That’s the Racers right.  They had a NCAA tournament run at one point.  Wasn’t aware they had a football team.


    Bulldawg Bob2 The only thing that makes this game interesting is it could be a part of a magical season in Athens and people will want to be there to witness what hasn’t happen in over 35 years!

  55. Bulldawg Bob2

    TeeHDawg  Bulldawg Bob2  They will rotate those front  7 guys in and out a good bit, except whom ever grabs the general in the middle spot at ILB that Jake Ganus was last year for Georgia and Herrera was the year before Ganus.

    But eye. Lo Carter has the potential to be All-American, but if he doesn’t push himself, he is in danger of getting surpassed by Walker.

  56. Bulltoad

    BroDawg Bulltoad RumRunnerDoogie I agree with what Saban said.  It is just not his position to say that.  If Spurrier wants to say it that is fne but Saban should not try to put extra pressure on Kirby.  Kirby stuck with him through the national championship and even worked with Pruitt during that time.  This is how you reward him.  Start making comments to National Media that UGA is the best Job in the SEC which basically means the entire country.

  57. TeeHDawg

    Bulldawg Bob2 TeeHDawg Thanks. I’ve been looking at Gday and doing a little projecting into fall camp also. As far as other positions, we do need depth along the dline. Clark, Carter, and Rochester will play a good bit this year due to depth alone. I also feel our 5 most talented players on defense are Thompson, Roquan, Briscoe, L. Carter, and Natrez with Walker on the bubble. If Walker progresses during the season, L. Carter will be 2nd string if he isn’t careful.

  58. Bulldawg Bob2

    So who is going to grab up tickets for the 2018 match-up against OOC opponent Murray State?


    Bulldawg Bob2 MMCSDAWG These are the times we wish we still had the Yolo!  lol…  If we had Yolo, I would beat the bank that Eason is the Starter NLT Missouri and probably by the end of the UNC game!



    The hypocritical thing for me is Saban’s reluctance to recognize the institutional differences between UGA and other universities, specifically Alabama.  There is only one focus in Tuscaloosa and that is to win football games.  The unequivocal control that Saban has been given at UA IMO makes Alabama the top job in all of college football.  Don’t get me wrong, Saban is an outstanding football coach and deserves credit for his accomplishments, but let’s not forget what happened when he didn’t have Carte blanche over everything when he was in Miami.  The unbridled control Saban has at UA IMO makes that job the best job in the SEC by FAR!

  61. BroDawg

    Bulltoad RumRunnerDoogie I think he was saying it because of the fruitful recruiting talent in this state and there not being any programs within the state to compete with. But I am sure some of it had to do with Jedi Mind Tricks….

  62. Bulltoad

    RumRunnerDoogie Bulltoad yeah, but why would saban say that?  Kirby was as loyal a coach as he ever had.

  63. Bulldawg Bob2

    MMCSDAWG Whomever the coaches feel like is the starter 🙂

    If Ramsey gets the command in the huddle and leadership down, I think he will be given the shot to start and then Eason will get worked in through the season. 

    But Eason is definitely the most talented out of the 4 QBs competing.

    Who is stepping up and leading team practices will be very telling as far as who is taking on that leadership role though.

  64. RumRunnerDoogie

    Bulltoad if anything saban saying that puts way more pressure on smart to win and win fast

  65. Bulltoad

    Is Saban beginning to worry about Kirby and UGA?  Why would he say that UGA is the best job in the conference?  Remember this is the same guy who was critical of us for firing a coach who won 10 games and now suddenly we are the best job in the SEC.  I would think that Saban would be proud of Kirby and would not want to put any extra pressure or expectations on him kinda of like Kirby is doing everything he can to protect Eason.   I personally think he is worried and he should be.   I am guessing the days of Kirby calling him for advice or his opinion may be over.

  66. PTCDawg

    Checking in for commitment news and find something even better…a WV post!!! Today is an awesome day to be a Dawg!!!

  67. Bulldawg Bob2

    And if you haven’t had a chance to listen to the podcast :). Our talk about the under dogs or surprises comes at about the 51:30 mark towards the end, but our discussion on FOIA is entertaining before that. 🙂

    BREAKING THE HUDDLE: Back With a Vengeance, Talking UGA, FOIA and G-Day by BD Illustrated ON AIR | Free Listening on SoundCloud

  68. Bulldawg Bob2

    We probably have discussed this before, but it is a good topic for discussion; on Breaking the Huddle, at the end David and I discussed two under dogs who fans would be pleasantly surprised at this fall.

    I gave one of defense and one on offense. My answer for the defensive underdog, well, I am not so sure he is an under dog, but I stated Dominick Sanders would become a defensive superstar in the secondary and an interception machine … which I thought he was already on his way to becoming last year.

    On offense, I went with incoming freshman RB Elijah Holyfield. Even with Sony Michel and if Nick Chubb comes back, I just think he is the guy that will be that 3rd RB, and he might be the number 2 guy until Chubb is 100% and good to go. I like Crowder, but Holyfield just has something about him when he runs that makes me think he will be very successful at the collegiate level.

  69. Bulldawg Bob2

    ZippyMorocco Hey Zippy. Good. Just sore. She ended up cracking a couple of lower floating ribs and straining some muscles when she was sick, didn’t realize it. Doc gave her some good drugs though; so, she is able to rest 🙂 Thanks for asking.

    How is Mrs. Zippy fairing these days?

  70. ZippyMorocco

    He will have had 10 months to recover. Given his work ethic, I thing he will be 100% on 9/3.

  71. BhamDawg5634

    MMCSDAWG BhamDawg5634 I would love for Chubb to come out and be full go first game (looking through the red glasses that is all I think about) but I think we just need to temper the expectations and not rush him back.  We have other talent behind him that can pick up the slack until he is ready to be fully unleashed


    BhamDawg5634 MMCSDAWG Great assessment on Chubb, I agree, I don’t expect him to get more than 8-10 carries regardless of his health.

  73. Bulldawg Bob2

    MMCSDAWG  I think he is ahead of schedule and doing really well. Does that equate to a start or at the very least playing time versus North Carolina on September 3rd? I still think that is difficult to ascertain at this moment in time, but will it impact the decision on who starts at QB for Georgia?


  74. BhamDawg5634

    MMCSDAWG I don’t think we see a heavy dose of Chubb unitl game two.  I think if he is cleared to play against UNC they will get him some touches and see how he can hold up to blocking as well in Pass Pro and then evaluate him again after the game to make sure there is no swelling.  If he is in good shape after then you will see full go on Chubb in the next game.  

    I am rooting for Eason to be the starter no matter who the RB is in game one.  I think if he can grasp the system fully then you don’t waste a half of year before you put him in the starting line up.

  75. Bulldawg Bob2

    Rivals’ Jake Reuse Tweeted out on Twitter yesterday that Markaviest ‘Big Cat’ Bryant has UGA in his top three. I’ve got family down the way in Crisp County and scuttle butt is, he really likes the Dawgs, but Auburn has shown him a lot of love.


    So, What is the consensus on N. Chubb…  Do you believe he starts game #1 against UNC in the dome?   If Chubb is ready game one, does that impact Kirby’s decision on who’s the starting QB game 1?

  77. Bulldawg Bob2

    TeeHDawg   I don’t disagree with that. Good list. Lo Carter and Walker might be 1a and 1b at this point, but if I were to make a list that is how I would pretty much put it down.

  78. Bulldawg Bob2

    A belated good morning to my favorite Dawg fans! How is everyone on this wet and rainy Friday?

  79. Greg Poole

    BroDawg I read that he has been following UT twitter acconts also – you know, it is the offseason

  80. BroDawg

    RumRunnerDoogie Greg Poole RobDawg I think he meant Lane. I clicked on his Twitter link above and he has a son named Knox so maybe that is the connection to the Knoxville sign???

  81. Greg Poole

    RobDawg  Kevin has been posting Tennessee related stuff for about a week. He left Tennessee to go to Southern Cal, as you remember. It’s just weird stuff


    Greg Poole Gives you a little extra Caffeine to roll with on this dreary Friday morning!  3 in a ROW!  That’s the stuff that makes my heart flutter!  
    ” Are you really scared of Malzhan and McElwain?  Does Booooch scare you?  I didn’t think so.”  Hell NO!


    ZippyMorocco MMCSDAWG ed603 Well I’m praying for her full recovery sooner rather than later!

  84. AlphaDawg

    Greg Poole BahitsDawg we sure are hypersensitive these days. Thanks for telling my generation they’re all special and deserve a trophy!

  85. ZippyMorocco

    Major league hitters don’t do so well against great pitching either. Check the Braves/Dodgers box score.

  86. Greg Poole

    BahitsDawg  “Our society is degrading daily.” I’ve been hearing that since childhood in the 50’s. The fact is that society is changing constantly. Degradation is an interpretation.

  87. ZippyMorocco

    MMCSDAWG ZippyMorocco ed603 
    It’s still leaking, but the nurse only comes by every three days now.

  88. AlphaDawg

    MMCSDAWG AlphaDawg Greg Poole oh and it’s embarrassing to see a beat writer for UGA tweeting at fans saying “your opinion doesn’t matter”

  89. dsw61

    Love how Bill Walsh taught his QBs to get moving if the second and first options weren’t open. I like coaches who teach fundamentals based in reality. The idea that QBs calmly sit in the pocket, go through their reads, and deliver the football is a meeting room myth. On the playing field it almost never happens that way. It sounds like this year the QBs are going to be taught to get moving if their first two reads aren’t open. IMO coaching philosophy details like this matter a lot. I expect QB play to be better this year if the QBs are allowed to move more.

  90. AlphaDawg

    MMCSDAWG AlphaDawg Greg Poole Oh it’s funny watching writers like Seth from the AJC try and backpedal. Now Seth says the article was “funny, and not some sort of scandal.”

  91. BahitsDawg

    Greg Poole AlphaDawg Our society is degrading daily.  That junk would not have been tolerated before the 1990s.   It might have been given on the down low as a verbal, but never on paper.

  92. TeeHDawg

    Coming out of spring right now, is it safe to say our LBS look like this 3 deep
    SOLB L.Carter D. Walker S. McGee
    MKLB N. Patrick T. Kimbrough J. O’Neal
    MOLB R. Carter R. Smith J. Taylor
    WOLB D.Bellamy C. Ameachi K. Brown

  93. AlphaDawg

    BahitsDawg AlphaDawg Greg Poole Justin Beiber might not make it after his recent comments about Prince

  94. BahitsDawg

    AlphaDawg Greg Poole please tell me that is Justin Beiber and he will keep trying until he gets it right.


    AlphaDawg Greg Poole The exact SAME stuff was required in his contract to perform for the Student homecoming gig back in 2010…  I don’t recall his requirement for prophylactics being a big issue when actual student monies were being spent to get him to perform in 2010?  The Athens and Atlanta Press have shown themselves to be childish and petty in their coverage of this event…  I totally agree with Kim and her assessment of this whole situation…  Not the date on this article…

  96. BenKellam

    AlphaDawg TeeHDawg I believe that Smart will make the right call with him. I’m sure Coley and Tucker are duking it out as we speak.

  97. Bansai buckeroo

    Morning Chief…..third Wednesday of the month is when I collect…thanks to all here for your support…##…… 🙂

  98. TeeHDawg

    AlphaDawg TeeHDawg Exactly. But I think Hardman has more upside at CB than Smith did. I’m all for Hardman getting the ball also. He is probably the closest we have seen to Champ Bailey in a while.

  99. TeeHDawg

    AlphaDawg Morning guys. Smith had some unreal speed. Wish they would have used him at WR instead of CB. He would have been more of a threat with the ball in his hands I feel.

  100. RumRunnerDoogie

    MMCSDAWG AlphaDawg they sure have been whenever the jags draft them, thats for sure

  101. AlphaDawg

    MMCSDAWG AlphaDawg Surprised UGA wasn’t on the list. I guess we have a lot more overall drafted not first rounders.

  102. AlphaDawg

    Greg Poole AlphaDawg Gotcha, yes I agree. I really hate that someone didn’t step up and take care of this. People are pointing the finger at Kirby like he should be overseeing this, and that’s stupid. He’s a football coach. It’s not his job to sit down and work out negotiations with a performer.


    AlphaDawg This was the exact topic on the morning sports show here in JAX!  Gotta admit, I enjoyed every minute of listening to them quibble over who was and wasn’t a bust!  lol

  104. Greg Poole

    CLTDawg The fact that he was asked just points out that those responsible for the mismanagement have left him to deal with it.


    Bansai buckeroo Morning Buck!  TGIF~!   oh, I almost forgot, it’s always Friday for you collecting our SSN taxes!  lol!

  106. WVDawg is crazy

    The Auburn University vet school acquired a very rare species of gorilla. Within a few weeks, the female gorilla became very “in the mood”, and difficult to handle. Upon examination, the park veterinarian determined the problem. The gorilla was in heat. To make matters worse, there were no male gorillas of the species available. While reflecting on their problem, the administrators noticed Ed, a part-time student intern, responsible for cleaning the animals’ cages. Ed, like most Barners, had little sense, but possessed ample ability to satisfy a female of ANY species. So, the administrators thought they might have a solution. Ed was approached with a proposition. Would he be willing to have sex with the gorilla for $500? Ed showed some interest, but said he would have to think the matter over carefully. The following day, Ed announced that he would accept their offer, but only under three conditions. “First,” he said, “I don’t want to have to kiss her. Secondly, you must never tell anyone about this.” The administration quickly agreed to these conditions, so they asked what was his third condition. “Well,” said Ed, “You gotta give me another week to come up with the $500….

  107. Greg Poole

    AlphaDawg I’m talking about the press coverage related to the failure to either get out in front of the rider disclosures or to simply strike the parts of the rider that would not look good if disclosed. It’s all about the PR.

  108. CLTDawg

    Greg Poole MidtownTeacher Gotta think that now that Kirby has been asked about it on the spot, measures will be put in place (aside from 90 day FOIA).

  109. CLTDawg

    Do you think they’ll get Ludacris to play a short set before ADGMs farewell press conference? lol ###

  110. MidtownTeacher

    Greg Poole I don’t see how it was a disaster.  I don’t think the money was bad and I don’t care about all the little items either.  Heck, we may spend more on ex-coaches salaries every week than this contract.  Come on.

  111. dsw61

    Greg Poole I haven’t read one article pertaining to the entertainment on G-Day because I refuse to click on any of the links. The entertainment for me was watching the players play football.

  112. AlphaDawg

    Greg Poole I was originally told 80k from my source. Hearing 65 was a relief. Unless you’re talking about the amenities.

  113. dsw61

    Congrats to the baseball team for beating Florida in 12 innings. The box score though…for both teams…shows the sorry state of hitting in college baseball when faced with good college pitching. Which isn’t as good as the top two or three pitchers in the rotation of MLB teams.  Each team had 16 strikeouts each. Of the combined 19 hits; only three were extra base hits…and they were doubles. Florida pitcher A.J Puk, who is considered a highly touted college pitcher, had 10 strikeouts through 6.2 inings. IOW, half the outs came on strikeouts. The common theme I see in college baseball are lineups with hitters who hit mostly singles and strikeout a lot. Which is exactly what you get when the hitters are taught to swing the way they are being taught.

    The offensive stats in college baseball plummeted when the aluminum bat was taken away and eventually replaced with the BBCOR bat. When the players whined, the NCAA lowered the seams on the baseball in an attempt to make the ball travel further. It helped a little, but in the end the lowered seams was just a band aid to cover up poor hitting mechanics. I see very few coaches in college and HS baseball who know how to teach wood bat mechanics…which is what the BBCOR bats try to simulate. Now that we’re in a slow period for football, I’ll try and post some specific info on hitting in case any of the Georgia baseball coaches or players read the site:)
