    Yeah bahits the guy trying all the psyche out maneuveres kinda used too much energy in that and didn’t even medal. Karma?

  2. RobDawg

    Yeah they look like kids going on field trip so excited to get to watch other elite atletes has to feel odd for the ball guys

  3. RumRunnerDoogie

    bahits RumRunnerDoogie Bulldawg Bob2 that last 20 meters i thought the japanese guy had him

  4. bahits

    RumRunnerDoogie Bulldawg Bob2 It wasn’t against his rival, it was against a Japanese swimmer.

    #20 gold medals.  Beast.

  5. bahits

    RumRunnerDoogie Bulldawg Bob2 Phelps’ 20th gold was the smallest margin of victory in 200m butterfly in Olympic history.

  6. RumRunnerDoogie

    RobDawg basketball team looks like they are having fun watching the swimming too lol. its cool coach K every olympics brings the team to the pool to watch

  7. Bulldawg Bob2

    Thanks for the report Michael. Good to hear Atkins is back out, even if he is just on the bike, less than a week from hyperextending his knee. Tells me he will be back sooner than later if he doesn’t have any set backs.
    Love hearing the o-line is starting to come together.

  8. Michael Pope

    The practice report for today is not too extensive. Today we saw Natrez Patrick doing some light running and John Atkins spent most of his time on a stationary bike. The offensive line as a whole was gaining a lot of praise from Coach Pittman. All of the running backs looked really strong as well today. A story will be posted tomorrow that will be more detailed than this.

  9. JaxDawg

    I just love how he threw during the spring game. Hope he improves during camp. He needs to not throw so hard though. Just want progress!

  10. Bulldawg Bob2

    UGA student-athletes find themselves in an elite class while competing on the Olympic stage in Rio

  11. Bulldawg Bob2

    JaxDawg  I’m sure the coaching staff and trainers are on top of it. He seemed OK. He went back and finished throwing from all reports. I could be wrong, but I doubt he has regressed.

  12. JaxDawg

    I hope he’s not throwing too hard. It seems like he’s been to so many camps that I hope his throwing motion hasn’t changed for the worse. Is it possible that QBs can regress?

  13. Bulldawg Bob2

    Added both the Roquan Smith interview and the Live from Butts-Mehre day 7 practice report podcasts up top in the news. Just refresh page to see the news feed update.

  14. Bulldawg Bob2

    Greg Poole dsw61  Agree Greg. If they thought it was anything more than soreness, they would have took him out, wrapped it with ice and he wouldn’t have been throwing anymore.

  15. Greg Poole

    Michael should be on in a few minutes – I think he watched Eason more than I did. I do have photos of him throw on the side – no obvious pain or obvious loss of velocity.

  16. Greg Poole

    dsw61 Definitely has a sore shoulder, but I doubt they would let him continue to throw if they thought there was damage.

  17. Bulldawg Bob2

    DawgLink  The coaches have had good things to say about him. Coach Smart said he “plays without a governor” and goes hard all practice.

  18. Greg Poole

    I wouldn’t worry too much about Eason. He was throwing but was taken out of the rotation and throwing with a GA but HE WAS THROWING

  19. Richmondawg

    Just realized that Marshall has been at the Redskins camp, four blocks from here, and I haven’t made it down there.

  20. DawgByte

    MMCSDAWG For me this is the biggest game of the year. I want us to absolutely destroy the Vols… no mercy and Chubb to run wild all over their D.


  21. DawgDaddy

    Bulldawg Bob2 Pretty good Bob, I have to take my wife to Macon tomorrow to see her heart doctor.  Pray that we get in and out of Macon unharmed.

  22. Bulldawg Bob2

    5 best defensive coordinators in the SEC in 2016 | by David Collier at SEC Country

    “2. Mel Tucker, UGA
    After losing some key pieces from last year’s team, it remains to be seen if UGA has the depth it needs to be among the SEC’s best defenses. However, the Bulldogs will be in good hands with defensive coordinator Tucker working alongside Smart.
    Tucker brings a plethora of experience, which includes multiple stints under Saban and multiple stops as a coordinator in the NFL. So while there may be some ups and downs for UGA, Tucker likely will figure it out.”

  23. Bulldawg Bob2

    Aye DawgByte. I think Jamyest Williams is a heck of a football player and athlete. He plays bigger than his 5-9 and 170 lbs stature – like Asher Allen did when he was HS and how he play at UGA and in the NFL. And I don’t doubt that if he were to commit to UGA, that Coaches Smart and Tucker would be glad and welcome him to the team. But the trend that I have seen from Smart and Tucker is that they are offering taller DBs in the 6 foot tall and plus range. Williams definitely plays physical like Tucker likes, but he may not be in the top 3 or 4 DBs on the board because of his height.

  24. Bulldawg Bob2

    He has been practicing more and more with the team.  That would not surprise me MMCS.

  25. Bulldawg Bob2

    Fred, I think he’ll be physically healthy to play. I don’t think he will be 20 to 30 carries a game ready because I think as DawgByte stated, there will be some rust that needs to be shaken off that only playing in a live game will do. Once he gets a couple of games under his belt, UNC and Nicholls State, he’ll be good to go as much as he is needed.

  26. Bulldawg Bob2

    Still out and about with the misses at the docs but wanted to check in with everyone and see how your Tuesday afternoon was going?

  27. Doc R

    DawgByte Doc R freddawg agreed—I just admire the guy so had to say something positive—but still true


    Can’t wait to hear how his first full speed scrimmage goes. Once he trusts it like Gurley told him. It’s game on and we all know what he can do! I think he will peak just in time for retribution against UTk!

  29. dsw61

    1mandawgpack dsw61 Yeah, 190 is a little short. 200 feet seems to be the norm. The umpire is responsible for making sure the balls are within the regulations. If I were the coach and noticed, I would have gone to the umpire; reported it; and made sure the correct balls were used. Seems like lower compression would make the balls less lively though; unless they were literally using rubberized balls which would be potentially dangerous for the fielders.

  30. DawgByte

    Doc R DawgByte freddawg That’s why I said 95%. I think physically he’ll be close to 100% by the opener, the other 5% is just ring rust and as you say that will take a quarter or two to get his game awareness back.

  31. DawgByte

    Bulldawg Bob2 Sometimes you have to make exceptions and in this case they should be going hard after Jamyest. He’s the real deal.

  32. DawgByte

    Bulldawg Bob2 I just applied for a Custodial Artisan position at the Tri-Delt house. I told them I did not own a cell phone with a video camera!

  33. Doc R

    DawgByte freddawg The BIG difference here is that we are talking about NICHOLAS CHUBB baby!!!!!!   Beast like none other.  Arrived in Athens in beast mode, I have NO doubt that he will be back to form.  However, after not playing, rehabbing, etc, realistically it will take a few carries and such to get totally back but I DO NOT DOUBT THAT HE CAN DO IT—–because it’s NICK CHUBB!!!!

  34. DawgByte

    freddawg Hard to say, but if he can be at 95% by the opener that’s 95% better than most RB’s in the country.

  35. freddawg

    Greg Poole From reading Smith’s comments today, it sounds like his family is preparing to file a lawsuit.  I doubt the NCAA or the SEC wants to see that happens because it opens up a lot of issues.  Wouldn’t be settled in time for Smith to play this year at UGA, obviously, but he could potentially win a big settlement against Alabama and the league.

  36. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    freddawg I think he needs a cuople of games to get his mind right, I have no doubt physically he’ll be ready, but Lattimore made the comment that the mental part is the hardest so I think it takes a couple of games at least

  37. freddawg

    Frankly Quarterback situation is so unsettled, it makes our offense hard to predict.  Last year I was pretty dang certain we would have an effective passing game and it turned out to be ineffective.  We definitely have the weapons to field a very good offense, but with a new staff and possibly QB, I’m keeping my expectations grounded until I see them execute.

  38. BMacDawg87

    Greg Poole He also specifically said he disagrees how Saban is handling the situation and that it’s his belief that once a kid earns his degree and serves his commitment to that school, he should be able to go wherever he chooses… for anyone still comparing this to Turman.

  39. freddawg

    What’s the consensus on Chubb?  Start the season as good as ever, or need some time to get back to form?  I don’t think he’ll be 100% from the outset.  Close probably, but between the mental and physical aspect probably take a few games.

  40. Frankly

    I was thinking about Chaney’s comments the other day which made me wonder if this year, despite all of the question marks, is the most talent he has had to work with at the college level.  The 2012 Tennessee was his most productive team produced the following draft picks off of that team.

    1st Round OT, WR
    2nd Round WR
    3rd Round OG
    6th Round OL, TE

    They were strong at WR and OL but I feel pretty confident that this years Georgia is overall more talented, deeper, and definitely more balanced.  I’m thinking Chaney is, for the most part, pretty confident that he can field an effective offense.


    1mandawgpack dsw61   My daughter played through HS as well, we ran into a similar situation once, but our coach wasn’t having none of it!  He let everyone and their brother know…  Not sure which reaction is best.  If the home team had said something before the game and we agreed upon it, that’s fine, but if I only find out after watching balls fly like ducks, then I’m probably going to let everyone know about it as well!

    Your right, pitching is the key and you need at least 2 aces!  We had one year with 2 aces and her team made it to the state finals.  The next year one of the aces graduated and it was a mediocre season!

  42. 1mandawgpack

    dsw61 you’ll get a kick out of this.  My daughter’s team had its first high school softball game last night.  We played at the other unnamed team’s home field, and their fence was a little shorter than regulation (I was told by one of the other team’s parents that it was 190 feet), but it had a 15+ foot outfield fence (which should have gotten it a bit closer to “regulation”).  Every time a girl hit a ball hard, it sounded as if they were hitting a rubber ball (and I remember this from our game there last year as well).  So, with all of my best James Bond/Jason Bourne skills, I investigated by chasing down a foul ball only to discover that we were playing with a “reduced compression” softball (both teams were playing with the same ball, so no advantage to either team).  However, the GHSA has approved a standard ball that is supposed to be used in all games, so our coach was debating whether or not to report the matter.  My daughter hit an absolute bomb that bounced off the middle part of the left/center field fence, but would have been a HR by about 20 feet on a regulation field.  So we were disappointed in that, even though we were thrilled with a “W” as I think they will be few and far between this year as we lack pitching quality in a serious way and have joined a much tougher overall region.

  43. Bulldawg36

    He don’t need to talk to corchNicky Sabath anyways. They don’t work together anymore

  44. 1mandawgpack

    dsw61 1mandawgpack freddawg Score Check MMCSDAWG  I watched every one of Archer’s games that were televised.  JW was, by far, the best overall player on a team that was supposedly loaded with players.  I forget who they lost to, but in my humble opinion, the rest of the team gave up and JW was, in effect, having to try to win the game by himself.  That was the night when I decided that I wouldn’t be too disappointed in us missing on virtually all of the Archer players included Price, Davis, etc.
    My point is this – what JW lacks in physical attributes, he more than makes up for in determination, hard work, athleticism and the “it” factor to virtually always be around the ball.  As I’ve said on here multiple times before, I trust our coaches and their evaluation process, but JW will be a playmaker for someone and I think he’ll end up being a very similar player as the Honey Badger.

  45. Greg Poole

    Speaking to SiriusXM radio in an interview with Andy Staples and Chris Carlin that aired on Tuesday, Smart put it this way about his interaction now with Saban: “To be honest with you, since I’ve been here leading this program, I’m concerned with this program and I know he’s concerned with the same. He’s doing what he’s got to do to make the University of Alabama the best. I’m doing what I’ve got to do to make the University of Georgia the best. That’s ultimately two separate entities so there’s not a lot of conversation back and forth.”</p><p>Speaking about Smith, who graduated Saturday, Smart called it a “situation that’s kind of fluid and it’s ever-changing so we’re kind of going with the flow.”

  46. jwp1983

    Greg Poole I sure do hate it for that kid. Unfortunately, I don’t think his wishes will be accommodated.


    AlphaDawg Bulldawg Bob2 You familiar with where the Butler Building is on Milledge?  Well that where I had the envious duty of being stationed back in the early 90’s as a Navy recruiter!  It was the best view in town!  We had some crazy groupies that loved a man in uniform!

  48. Bulldawg36

    To be the man you got to beat the man!!!! Wooooooooooo!!!! UGA is attacking the day. I’m ready to put a whooping on unc!!!!!

  49. dsw61

    1mandawgpack freddawg Score Check MMCSDAWG Watch his last HS game last year…playoff game. He was taking a lot more punishment than he was giving out. He was clearly hurting by the end of the game.

  50. freddawg

    After their scrimmage today, Auburn fans seem to think Sean White is in the lead position to win the qb job.  Could be wrong, but to me that kid looks like Aaron Murray without the arm strength.  Plus, the rumor I’ve seen on more than one Auburn message board is that he has quite a fondness for a partying.  He’s supposed to be pretty accurage, but it’s hard to see how his height, build, speed, and arm will work for Malzahn, especially since they don’t have the makings of a great running game.

  51. AlphaDawg

    MMCSDAWG Reddawg13 AlphaDawg Yeah It’s frighting. From what I’ve read Blank should be doing kickoffs because he can put it past the endzone consistently, but I don’t know about FG.


    Reddawg13 MMCSDAWG AlphaDawg Don’t get me started! lol.  Kicking game is directly responsible for 6-8 points per game…  how many games are decided by less than 8 points?  I’m actually getting concerned about our kicking game.  I haven’t seen anything good about our place kickers.  I know the new guy is scheduled to report when classes start.  Wasson I believe his name is.

  53. AlphaDawg

    dsw61 Greg Poole Score Check The kid is a playmaker. Even if he had to scratch and fight his way for a starting spot, he’s plenty good for quality depth

  54. dsw61

    Greg Poole Score Check Jamyest has every attribute that you look for in a CB except ideal size. I’m sure the staff is concerned about his durability as a starter in the SEC.

  55. Reddawg13

    MMCSDAWG AlphaDawg I agree that is a phase of the game that deserves a lot of attention. Special teams can win or lose a game in a heart beat!

  56. Bulldawg Bob2

    Clemson, Georgia, Ohio State, South Carolina and Tennessee, all are in it for Jamyest Williams.
    Georgia was the favorite at one time but Mel Tucker and Kirby Smart appear to be going after taller DBs.

  57. 1mandawgpack

    freddawg Score Check MMCSDAWG  That’s a significant understatement.  He started and played both ways at Archer and dolled out punishment on both offense (playing RB) and defense (playing DB).  I know that CKS likes longer/taller DBs, but I think that Williams can be a bit thicker version of the Honey Badger with his tenacity and tendency to always be around the ball.


    Greg Poole Score Check Me either, but if we don’t pull a couple more of our top guys, then he is probably 4th or 5th on our board right now.

  59. Greg Poole

    Score Check  I have never been convinced that UGA was a top priority for Kirby/Tucker. Of course, I’m often wrong.

  60. DawgByte

    Score Check With Wyatt decommitting from the Chickens he’s got to be wondering, “Why in the heck am I interested in that loser program in Columbus.” If that is apart of his thought process then he’ll be a Dawg!

  61. freddawg

    Score Check MMCSDAWG Watched his video for the first time last night.  He’s a tough little guy.  I was expecting a Shaq Wiggins type of db, but Williams is a physical player.

  62. freddawg

    AlphaDawg freddawg Bulldawg Bob2 Or see the look on a quarterbacks face up close, when he turns around and sees big Trent bearing down with a full head of steam.

  63. AlphaDawg

    freddawg Bulldawg Bob2 I’m still waiting on the cameras built into practice helmets to be put into game day helmets with the option of live streaming. Who wouldn’t want to see Chubb bust off a big run in first person?

  64. Bulldawg Bob2

    I think it would be a very big hit, especially with the popularity of fantasy football.
    And aye. I could see where you would have to subscribe for the service to utilize the info. Cha-ching.

  65. BahitsAgain

    freddawg Bulldawg Bob2 Just embed the chip into the player along with the rest of the population.  That way, we can know everything about everyone when we point our smart phones at them.

    Just my twisted 1994 humor.  I like the helmet idea, and it would create a market for more TV purchasing so I could see manufacturers going for it.

  66. Bulldawg Bob2

    Aye Greg.
    Fred it would not surprise me if a company or two are already working on developing the system.

  67. freddawg

    Greg Poole freddawg Bulldawg Bob2 It seems doable, if there was any demand.  I always find myself trying to locate and follow an individual, especially when I watch replays.  And I’m always looking up players on my computer during games, to get their name, stats, vitals etc.

  68. freddawg

    Bulldawg Bob2 I wish someone would design a system that allows the players to be identified and tracked on a tv/computer screen.  Some chip in their helmet or something that allows the viewer to place a cursor over the player and get information about the player, and follow them during the course of a play.

  69. Bulldawg Bob2

    The first smart football is about to hit the market | By – August 9, 2016 | Football Scoop

    “The conversation comes up in every bar and every living room each weekend throughout the fall. The chain gang stops a game down to perform their decidedly unscientific measurement of a football’s precise location, and the friend or stranger next to you asks, ‘Why don’t they just put a sensor in the football?’

    Now, they have.”

  70. freddawg

    They have a lot of depth on the DL and a fairly experienced OL, so that’s a good starting point.   But they’ll need a qb to really improve from last year.  I think Jeremy Johnson getting his act together is their only hope.  Sean White is not physically capable of running that offense without a strong group of RB’s, which they don’t have now.

  71. Bulldawg Bob2

    Latest BD Illustrated ON-Air podcast up top just above comment section. Refresh page for it to show up. Hope you all enjoy it. Thanks!

  72. Greg Poole

    dawgmum Don’t see him giving in but it is occupying, at least, a small portion of his time.

  73. Bulldawg Bob2

    MMCSDAWG dawgmum lagadawg Greg Poole  The SEC already declined to waive the transfer rule restrictions for Maurice Smith. He and his family did appeal, but I haven’t heard if the appeal has finished being considered and evaluated or not.

    The NCAA is not going to get involved here, and even if they did, the only thing they could is put public pressure on Alabama, Nick Saban and the SEC to grant Smith a release and waiver to transfer and play.

  74. dawgmum

    MMCSDAWG dawgmum lagadawg Greg Poole Yeah, that’s what I was thinking. He can’t back down unless forced to do so.


    dawgmum lagadawg Greg Poole Hell no,  he will not change his mind and unless the SEC or NCAA gets involved this is a done deal.

  76. dawgmum

    lagadawg Greg Poole Do any of you think Saban will cave on this? I think at this point, there’s no way he’ll change his mind, even if he comes to think he should. His reputation is at stake here.

  77. lagadawg

    Greg Poole Smith has a very well spoken mother. If he needs a lawyer he should look no further than Mama.

  78. Bulldawg Bob2

    Bulldawg36 I know it is impacts practice, but we really need the rain here in Georgia.

  79. Bulldawg Bob2

    How many days till the Bulldawgs kick off their 2016 college football season?

    25 Days  5 hours and 38 minutes to go as of right …… now

  80. AlphaDawg

    Greg Poole man I can’t wait for that IPF to be complete. I bet Kirby is even more frustrated

  81. ronaldo77

    Greg Poole MMCSDAWG How much I miss Sturdivant. It’s crazy that he really only played one year (a true FR a LT) and I still consider him our best LT in years at the school

  82. BahitsAgain

    Greg Poole I sure would like to get him into Sinclair’s S&C and weight adjustment program.  I am blown away with’s weight loss.  Most of that is due to the diligence of the young man, but a lot is our S&C guys.

  83. Bulldawg Bob2

    MMCSDAWG  I don’t think that is a cast.  It appears to just be a wrap or forearm sleeve with a play card on it.

  84. BahitsAgain

    Greg Poole Ok, now I am questioning his intelligence.  A lot of tough people in North Korea haven’t outlasted their tough times….

    just kidding.  I like Ramsey.

  85. Greg Poole

    - has a top ten of Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Virginia and Virginia Tech; he says he doesn’t have a leader.
    -His best relationships are with coach Garett Tujague from Virginia, coach Shane Beamer at Georgia, coach Vance Vice from Virginia Tech, coach A.J. Blazek from Rutgers, coach Tim Drevno from Michigan and coach Ron Burton from Michigan State.

  86. Greg Poole

    MMCSDAWG  I was not at practice yesterday, so IDK – but it doesn’t matter much at his position.

  87. Reddawg13

    MMCSDAWG Greg Poole Galliard has been my man for a while! Our backs may finally get the holes they deserve! Go head Pittman!

  88. Greg Poole

    I know it is tempting to equate big with good when thinking of offensive linemen. That mindset is the biggest misconception in football. Remember, if it were true the dude below would be starting somewhere rather than being in prep school trying to lose weight and develop mobility.

  89. Reddawg13

    Greg Poole I have no problem with Wynn being at LT. He is very athletic, strong, quick, with long arms, footwork and technique. He will do us proud! Sometimes players who don’t look prototypical still have outstanding careers.

  90. Greg Poole

    AlphaDawg That is what Pittman/Chaney want to happen and if it does they will have much greater flexibility to match their OL to the various defensive personnel they will face.

  91. AlphaDawg

    Greg Poole MMCSDAWG From practice reports I’ve read I’m thinking Catalina eventually takes over at LT.  Just a hunch

  92. Greg Poole

    MMCSDAWG As I mentioned earlier, It is way too early to discount Catalina. He has had 7 practices as a Bulldog. That said, what UGA has not had for several years is quality depth along the OL. 
    Remember, all reporters, including Michael, are drawing conclusions base on 15 minutes of a 2 hours practice – and that 15 minutes is during position group practice.

  93. BahitsAgain

    Greg Poole Can you imagine if Pittman is able to develop a true 2 deep line where he could rotate the whole lines?   That would be a dream come true.

  94. BahitsAgain

    revtizzy MMCSDAWG Greg Poole Big difference with the heat and humidity, too.  I kind of feel for the big man.  Probably sucking wind the whole practice.

  95. revtizzy

    MMCSDAWG Greg Poole I think the assumption that Catalina would automatically be the LT, was either misguided or wishful thinking.   Big difference between RI and UGA.  I do hope Catalina makes the transition and is able to be a big contributor.


    Greg Poole I know we thought he would move back inside, but from everything I’ve been reading, I’m starting to think he stays at tackle and I’ve also heard that Gailard is going to be tough to get out of the Guard spot!  I like that we are building some depth and competition along the OL!  This is where it all starts!

  97. AlphaDawg

    Hobnailboot aka RobG Yes, sounds like he liked UGA but was a Tiger deep down. Probably would have flipped at some point, so I guess it’s better to not have him. The deal with having a commit video already filmed is a bummer for sure.


    Greg Poole Watching this young man and Pittman interact for 4-5 years is going to be fun to watch!

  99. lagadawg

    Bulldawg36 It seems to me the biggest drama queens in football recruiting are WR’s and DB’s

  100. Bulldawg36

    It makes no sense when we gave Kirby and tucker… Two of the best secondary coaches in the nation!!!! That’s why I hope we can keep brini

  101. Bulldawg36

    They might. I hope auburn upsets Clemson… Then the next week I hope auburn loses. Im sick of those Clemson fans!!!!!!!!

  102. BahitsAgain

    lagadawg It would be better for us, if they didn’t.

    Strength of schedule speaking, it would be better to meet an undefeated or one loss Ole Smelly, than one that has multiple losses.

  103. ronaldo77

    Bulldawg36 Terrell seems all but gone and Williams and UGA seem to have a strange relationship. I dont see the public love between the two as I see with others…

  104. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Can’t blame a kid for following his heart, he seems like a genuinely good kid and I wish him well

  105. Reddawg13

    Hobnailboot aka RobG I love the leave no stone un-turned approach this whole staff has!

  106. Reddawg13

    BahitsAgain DawgDaddy Greg Poole leave my nifty little propulsion unit out of this…..


    BahitsAgain Bulldawg36 They have to win this year, otherwise Les could be gone.  So it aint over til it’s over.  If they under perform again this year and lose 3-4 SEC games, then some of those recruits are going to be headed somewhere else!  There are still a lot of variables left in this years recruiting season!

  108. AlphaDawg

    LOL Bama played themselves. Caused Stevens to rethink his silent commit with UGA and opened the door and then he went back to LSU. Now they can play against him every year!

  109. BahitsAgain

    dsw61 Greg Poole

    – home crowd – if we can focus early and know when to cheer and when to shut up.  That seems to be a problem on the first game after the long drought.

    – Highly motivated first year coach and coaching staff.  I am not looking at the first year thing as a negative.

    – More debth

  110. dsw61

    Greg Poole So, UNC doesn’t have an elite pass rush off the edge; their OL is average in pass protection; they’re starting a new QB; their safeties are solid but not elite; and no mention of them losing their two starting senior LBs to graduation.

    Compare that to Georgia’s perceived strengths:
    Elite running game assuming at least one of Chubb or Sony is available
    Elite TEs who can block and catch
    Elite edge rushers

    Don’t know how many the bayou bengals can take. Clem&son is after Williams and Terrell. I will be very upset if they snag the both of them.

  112. Colonial Dawg

    DawgLink 12 from Georgia (peaches), 2 from Florida (oranges) and 1 from Texas (star, as in the Lone Star state).

    Bulldawg36 Looking at the list of uncommitted players, LSU is in the mix for the top two.  They might stay ahead of us.  I wonder how many they can take?

  114. Bulldawg36

    Im worried that we could miss out on the top two corners in the state..Williams and Terrell!!!!!

  115. BahitsAgain

    DawgLink yep, Toneil Carter is from Texas.

    It is amazing to me that we can be so highly ranked as a team with almost just Georgia boys.  I guess that his because Florida, Texas and California have to split their players among so many teams, while Kirby is locking down Georgia.

  116. BahitsAgain

    DawgLink I am guessing the states from where our recruits are coming from.  I am not sure was the star one is.  Texas?

    Change of weather is rough on Catalina. I can’t believe Bynum finally gained the weight….good for him!!!

  119. DawgByte

    Aulden Bynum is taking 2nd unit reps at LT. Catalina is practicing with the 3rd unit! Wow!!!

  120. Greg Poole

    DawgDaddy I wouldn’t put much stock in where people line up  for drills before the first scrimmage. Catalina has practiced 7 times with UGA.

  121. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole Good read, Michael continues to impress.  What is the story on Catalina?  How is he looking?  I am concerned that he is listed as 3rd team, is it because he is still learning the system here?

  122. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Sinclair and his guys have been doing a very good job with the troops so far, little things like this are the attention to detail I think this team has lacked in the past

  123. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole Good read, do we use all of these points?  I like the linemen actually grading themselves.

  124. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole Good, he probably won’t flip but it is good that the best want to see what UGA is all about now.
