    Yes all the years and years of sacrifice and hard work suddenly came to a dramatic conclusion. Very happy for him. I thought Phelps did a good job of helping him cope too

  3. RumRunnerDoogie

    RobDawg cant blame him, he just won a gold medal on the same team as probably the greatest Olympian of all time to boost

  4. Bulldawg Bob2

    RobDawg  Missed it because satellite was, but I’m sure there will be a replay of it on Youtube or NBC

  5. RobDawg

    The 4×100 relay medal ceremony was good to see. The younger dude tried to play it off cool during interviews but during the anthem he couldn’t hold back the emotion and tears. Looked genuine of surprise emotion for him

  6. RumRunnerDoogie

    Bulldawg Bob2 had one like that around 7 tonight, random thing was huge rain and wind but no lightning what so ever

  7. Bulldawg Bob2

    Man, satellite just went out here. Bout to storm something fierce. Looks like a light show outside.

  8. RumRunnerDoogie

    either these USA girls are really really good or the rest of the world has taken a step back in gymnastics

  9. RumRunnerDoogie

    Bulldawg Bob2 talk about taking a step back a couple thousand years instead of all these electric simulators

  10. RobDawg

    No chemicals unlike …. Ahem …. Ahem… Big going to name names but it’s spelled R-U-S-S-I-A

  11. RumRunnerDoogie

    Bulldawg Bob2 had to run for the nitro## naw it was exciting..probably because france talked crap in london and russia being well…all drugged up

  12. RumRunnerDoogie

    well if that one race is any indication i dont think my ticker will let me watch the dawgs haha

  13. RobDawg

    Yes it’s like acupuncture but with heated glass bottle that makes suction on skin. It’s therapy

  14. RumRunnerDoogie

    anyone know what those dark rings on phelps are? hes not the first one ive seen with them

    RumRunnerDoogie Bulldawg Bob2 dirtydawgs  On offense I agree. They still have some pretty good defensive players.

  18. Bulldawg Bob2

    dirtydawgs  Even if they win 10 games but don’t go to the conference championship, his seat will be mighty hot.

  19. Bulldawg Bob2

    Aye. Would love for UGA to get AJ, Jamyest or Xavier too.
    Dorian Hall is a 6-4 and 199 lbs safety out of Hollywood, FL.

  20. Bulldawg Bob2

    SEC Freshmen who could rush for 1000 yards | from David Collier at SEC Country: 
    “Elijah Holyfield, Georgia
    Going into the fall, it’s hard to see freshman running back Elijah Holyfield getting many carriers with Chubb and Sony Michel ahead of him on the depth chart, but both veterans are coming off of injuries entering the season.
    If either or both veterans have difficulty getting back into the fold following those injuries, Holyfield will undoubtedly get some opportunities to show what he can do. However, it’s hard to imagine a situation where the freshman running back will be featured enough to rack up 1,000 yards with two proven guys ahead of him on the depth chart”

  21. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Bulldawg Bob2 Hobnailboot aka RobG Not since Chance graduated, but knowing Ola has a couple of All State players I might have to start back

  22. Bulldawg Bob2

    TeeHDawg   Evening TeeH Greg Poole and @Michael Pope were there covering the event and we had some other BI posters there as well. DawgLink  and Bulldawg36 were two that I know made it to Sanford and Athens for Fan Day and the open practice.

  23. TeeHDawg

    Evening guys. Can anyone that was at the open practice tell me how did Jarvis Wilson and Rashad Roundtree look yesterday? Other than depth on the DL and QB, that is one of the most concerningredients areas that need to be addressed.

    I saw some photos. Not only that but the rubber pellets that fill in between turf fibers were above level of the “grass” in a lot of areas. Those field maintenance people prob need to get resumes ready. What sux is the guys trying to make roster have one less chance now

  26. Bulldawg Bob2

    Five Most Impressive Players through the First Week of Fall Camp from Dan Matthews at GridIron Now:

    “Freshman RB Elijah Holyfield: The son of former heavyweight champion boxer Evander Holyfield has been making the most of his early opportunities to impress the coaches at Georgia. The younger Holyfield, who at 5-foot-11 and 215 pounds does not physically look like a freshman, has shown on more than one occasion already, that he has shown that he can be both effective running between the tackles and in the open field. and Nick Chubb still working his way back to full strength from one, Holyfield could be in line for some early playing time as a valuable reserve running back.”

  27. Bulldawg Bob2

    RumRunnerDoogie Bulldawg Bob2 RobDawg  I think that is the first time I have heard of field paint turning into a congealed tarry substance.

    What the heck?

  28. Bulldawg Bob2

    Class of 2019 OT commit to Georgia, Luke Griffin, was visiting UGA yesterday for Fan Day.

  29. Bulldawg Bob2

    RobDawg  She must have had nothing left in the tank. That happened in the men’s race yesterday. There were three in the lead pack and two wrecked, leaving the rider from Poland in the lead. It didn’t look like he would get caught because he had such a big lead, but he just didn’t have anything left with just about 1 to 1.5 km to go.

  30. Bulldawg Bob2

    Looks like they are cancelling tonight’s Hall of Fame preseason game due to a field paint issue that apparently has left the paint congealed. It apparently would be like running on sticky tar.

  31. RobDawg

    Our rider then took the lead and rode in first for like 7 kilometers only to get caught 200 m to go. Devastating

  32. Bulldawg Bob2

    RobDawg Man. Tough day. I did see where the women’s bicyclist leader took a tumble end over end on her handlebars per tmdawg12  ‘s post. Hope she is OK.

  33. RobDawg

    Men’s volleyball lost to Canada, women bicicle rider got caught and passed by three riders about 200 meters to go, just hadn’t bounced our way today.

  34. Bulldawg Bob2

    RobDawg I know right? If only UGA had decided to build one of those new fangled facilities where weather doesn’t affect practice … oh wait …..

  35. Bulldawg Bob2

    Speaking of practice next week. They are calling for a good chance of afternoon t-showers and t-storms for most of the week. Hopefully, it won’t affect practice too much for the Dawgs.

  36. Bulldawg Bob2

    PTCDawg  Aye. Maybe Niebuhr talked with Webb and he was told something that made him confident in putting in the CB for him. Hard to say though.

  37. Bulldawg Bob2

    In case you haven’t heard or missed it, Mecole Hardman had two blocked FGs in yesterday’s open practice towards the end of the session. Here is an article from Jason Butt over at the Macon Telegraph on it:

    “Hardman burst through the line of scrimmage for two blocked field goals in Saturday’s open practice. It wouldn’t have mattered who the place-kicker was because he was in the backfield quick and in front of both William Ham and Jacob Eason, who was holding the attempt.”

  38. Bulldawg Bob2

    RobDawg  I haven’t watched hardly any of the Olympics today because I was at a birthday party.

  39. RobDawg

    WTH the USA athletes are not having the greatest day today. Even the Williams sisters are struggling

  40. Bulldawg Bob2

    Not Greg, but Kimbrough is still very much in the thick of the competition to win a start at one of the ILB spots. It’s a very heated competition between all 4 of the guys vying for 2 spots.
    Regardless of who wins the starting spots, all 4 guys will play when it comes R. Carter, Kimbrough, Patrick and Roquan.

  41. freddawg

    Greg Poole Do you have a feel for who will be starting at ILB’er on September 3rd?  At one point I thought Kimbrough would be a starter this year, but I haven’t heard his name much lately.

  42. Richmondawg

    Bulldawg Bob2 drinking, getting ate up by mosquitoes at Scuffletown Park. Damn rain this year is killing us with the bugs….

  43. Greg Poole

    This will be a big week for the competitions in fall camp. They will test some guys during the week.

  44. freddawg

    Late in the summer I usually watch replays from last season college games.  I rarely watch Georgia’s losses though, rather look at other teams’ games.

  45. PTCDawg

    Adding my kudos to Jim Furyk!! There’s a mark that’s likely to stand for a LONG time!

  46. converted 1981

    They came on a minute ago and said they thought she was OK. Heading t OK the hospital. I thought she was hurt Bad.

  47. Bulldawg Bob2

    If you click on the gallery up top, it should take you to all the picture galleries SonofHenry

  48. Doc R

    RobDawg When you draft on a bike, you save about 30-40 % of your energy, depending on what stats you read.  So that is why you seldom see a single breakaway make it.  Sometimes if there are 3 in the break, they can make it to the finish, but without an HC climb to a summit, just doesn’t happen

  49. Bulldawg Bob2

    Yep. I get excited because football has started and then go “oh yeah. It’s preseason.”
    I try to find games that may show some former Bulldawgs trying to make a team. That makes it more interesting.

  50. SonOfHenry

    Anybody got some good pictures of how ripped our players look? There are some good ones in the Gelleries, but I was telling a friend about it and wanted to show him more than the Elijah Holyfield pics. I can’t remember where all I have seen the pictures.

  51. godawgs678

    I always get so excited when the preseason games start. Then Inmake it ten minutes and get bored because no one really cares about preseason football.

  52. RobDawg

    Yeah that had to be devastating to her. Easy to coach from the sofa and for me to want her to stand up and pedal like the ones catching her but she didn’t have any more juice I guess
    Did y’all see the leader before her crash? That looked severe and I’m concerned that girl was hurt bad

  53. DawgDaddy

    tmdawg12  The announcers were predicting it when they saw the 3 riders team up instead of trying to make a wild dash to try to catch her.  I was hoping they were wrong.

  54. DawgDaddy

    tmdawg12 they still have not updated us on that rider, that was a huge  fall.  I hope she is not crippled from that spill.

  55. Greg Poole

    freddawg  You’ll notice the policy does not dictate which games must be missed. In other words, there is nothing to prevent CKS from sitting him for Nichols and ULL.

  56. DawgDaddy

    Bulldawg Bob2 I  hope he has a great career at UGA, you have to like a kid with determination like that to realize his dream.

  57. freddawg

    Thanks, Greg.  I hope Kirby does what he can to make Ledbetter available for the big games.  I’m all for tough discipline on violence, theft, etc., but UGA’s inflexible pot/alcohol policies have been damaging IMO.  I don’t think it’s wrong to discourage bad or destructive habits, but I’d like to see a bit more coach discretion for how to handle them.

  58. Greg Poole

    freddawg  No, and the policy does not demand 2 games. The policy is 10% of the season, however, in the past, the practice has been to round up to 2 games. The policy also does not dictate which games must be designated for the suspension, as far as I know.
    I’m not saying that Smart will round down to one game, but there is nothing to prevent him from doing so in the policy.

  59. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    bahits IMO Cochran is worth every penny he’s getting, and it would seem Sinclair is no slouch either

  60. freddawg

    Reading the practice report, it said Ledbetter’s suspension is two games.  Has that been confirmed by Smart?


    Right lol. Not only lowest round in history but also the only man to ever shoot 2 sub 60 rounds. Great job Jim!

  62. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole This is unreal, I am happy for Jim, he seems to be a good guy.  Slow but good, haha.

  63. converted 1981

    Say you you wat! We share the same Anniversary….August 07, 1976. 40 years ago today.

  64. Greg Poole

    converted 1981  It is really hard to make a judgment with the drills we have seen. This coming week – with full contact – will start to make the picture clearer.

  65. converted 1981

    No hearing much about him right now. How is he progressing. Does h e appear ready to take either of the starting tackle spots?

  66. dsw61

    bahits dsw61 Not sure about the laces. Probably a personal preference thing. If I were a QB coach; I would encourage QBs to experiment with their grip during the off season as a way to self discover how various grips change the flight of the ball. Then I would leave it up to them to decide what works best for them. IMO young athletes don’t experiment enough now-a-days. Scientist conduct experiments to gain knowledge. IMO athletes should follow the same model.

  67. PTCDawg

    Greg Poole “most analysts believe he will roll with Eason (for 2016)”…unless he is talking about the analysts that post on BI that’s not even close to what I have seen…unless he is talking about 2016 as a whole  and not particularly game 1…

  68. dsw61

    Frankly dsw61  Yep. The day Kyle Davis walked onto a college football field is the day his impressive HS physical appearance turned into a typical college football player.

  69. Greg Poole

    dsw61 Greg Poole  I think it is Simmons. As you can see I didn’t get the number. No, he didn’t hold on to it

  70. dsw61

    Greg Poole dsw61 Is that Simmons and did he actually catch that ball? I haven’t see any clips or images of him at any of UGA’s practices.

  71. dsw61

    bahits dsw61 Look at the position of Lambert’s chest compared to Vaughn’s chest. I haven’t looked at Vaughn’s throwing motion, but anytime the shoulders are sideways or partially sideways to the intended target, the more it will appear the ball is behind the head. Lambert’s shoulders are almost square to his target and the ball is behind his head. As Vaughn’s shoulders rotate around a little more the ball will be more out to the side of his head. My guess is that Vaughn throws like most everyone else and the image of Vaughn has more to do with camera angle. I’m on my laptop right now, but when I get home I will post a clip of Lambert from my desktop.

  72. Greg Poole

    I saw Godwin’s Mom and Dad yesterday. Mr Godwin said he is feeling great and he looks healthy.

  73. Bulldawg Bob2

    Reddawg13 DawgByte  I am sure he has been hitting the weights. 

    Big Country is at 341 lbs and ya’ll remember Bynum who played at TE last year? He put on 20 to 25 lbs is up to 292 lbs.

  74. Frankly

    I agree.  Davis is a physical specimen but that physical advantage over DB’s will be less pronounced if not completely gone on the college level.  He may still be a very good college WR but I’d rather have speed all day. 

    That’s a very good point that you learn a lot more about a player from watching the games than just the highlights.

  75. Bulldawg Bob2

    DawgByte  Aye. Solomon Kindley was 370 lbs and is down to 336 lbs on the latest Fall Camp roster.

  76. Bulldawg Bob2

    Good morning BI!

    Headed to a birthday party in just a little bit, but your evening and Night Crew BD Illustrated DJ will be back on this afternoon.

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

  77. DawgByte

    Greg Poole Reddawg13 I didn’t see this post, but I agree with you guys based on what I wrote above. This kid will start for UGA next year. If he can’t slot in at OG, I say make him a Center, if he’s got the leadership skills to call the LOS.

  78. DawgByte

    Good morning Dawgs!
    Just saw a picture of Solomon Kindley… wow talk about a transformation!!! He’s dramatically reduced a ton of bad fat and added a lot more muscle. Again this S&C staff is working wonders! Watch out for Kindley, as he was underrated in HS. I watched his highlight reel a couple of times and he’s got all the ability Pittman needs to make him a successful starting OG. IMO one day it will be Big Country on one side and Solomon on the other.

  79. bahits

    Saban is sweatin bullets over the resurgent UGA!  

    First evidence was way over paying their strength coach to keep him from coming to the good guys.   The most recent is the denial of transfer of that DB who had graduated.
    We got him just where we want him!!!

  80. Reddawg13

    Greg Poole Reddawg13 He was athletic at that larger size, he must be moving a lot better now.

  81. Reddawg13

    Greg Poole Reddawg13 The long touch pass he threw in the G game was very impressive! Chaney The Pie Lover is Ramsey’s savior!

  82. Reddawg13

    Greg Poole Reddawg13 Me too Greg! I believe we win it and in good fashion, but I guarantee one thing, we will be ready and will not act lost and un-prepared!

  83. PatriotVeteran

    Fan Day wasn’t a 93K attendance record because of the weather conditions and I don’t blame anyone for not showing up.    I also give great credit to the Coaches and Players that are out there daily in the hot sun and working damm hard in preparing for the season.    We owe our coaches and players a lot of respect for being so dedicated and working so hard.      Weather can force mistakes and hardship for our great team.

    Eason and other made some great plays and some not so great.     In the extreme conditions of being so hot and having their football gear and helmets on, we (the Fans) have to give some thought that under or over thrown passes could be because of the heat, even though the QB/WR/TE gave it their all.     Keep up the great work and hopefully, it should be a little cooler on September 3rd when you can go out and kick some butt.

    IMO, it was Great Work for the Coaches and Players and thanks to the FANS who withstood the weather condition and gave our team their full support, this Fan Day 2016.    GO DAWGS.

  84. Reddawg13

    Greg Poole I love a hands on, high energy HC that makes corrections right when they happen, whether in a game or practice! College players are still kids and respond well to it, Pros not so much. We will see great results from having Kirby as our HC!

  85. DawgLink

    Off topic but did anyone see the video of Derrick Brown getting that tailed chewed out? I laughed pretty good

  86. rugbydawg79

    Greg Poole Michael is really talented, very enjoyable to read, I like the way he was able to talk about Ledbetter and to do so in a mature positive manner–we are all pulling for him.

  87. Greg Poole

    dsw61  fans get to see Tyler Simmons make a few grabs yesterday. That was a good call on your part.

  88. DawgDaddy

    Reddawg13 I agree, once a kid graduates he should have a choice or there should be no rule in place for the lucky vs the unlucky in this type case.

  89. DawgDaddy

    dsw61 I agree, when I saw KD on TV I noticed that he was prone to take a lot of plays off.   I don’t like that almost as much as I don’t like the hot dog type player,  not saying that I thought KD to be a hot dog.

  90. dsw61

    Just a reminder that last year during Kyle Davis’ recruitment, I said I preferred Tyler Simmons over Davis. I watched both play in HS…entire games, not just HUDL highlight video…and IMO Simmons was the better receiver. I said last year that Simmons has track type speed and was very stout for a WR. He reminded me more of a RB with WR speed. McEachern actually used him a lot in the WIldcat, especially inside the opponents five yard line. Davis’ hype was almost entirely due to his impressive physique. He was a HS kid with a college physique. He never had elite speed though and his catching ability was just okay.

  91. Reddawg13

    Can someone paraphrase what Tucker and Chaney said in their interview? My home wifi out in the country is to slow to play it, lol.

  92. Reddawg13

    Greg Poole I think once a kid graduates and wants to go to another school the coach should have no say in where he goes. The NCAA has so many useless rules that are of no importance it is time they establish some that mean something and actually help!
