Greg is closing in on 15 years writing about and photographing UGA sports. While often wrong and/or out of focus, it has been a long, strange trip full of fun and new friends.

    Bansai buckeroo kind of hard to say bama is on the up when they are at the top already

  2. Bansai buckeroo

    Yeah Byte…that story from Solomon has to make you feel good about what’s happening at Georgia…

  3. 1mandawgpack

    Most of S. Ga. has always been pro-UGA, but I truly believe that it was too much of an inconvenience for some of our former coaches who didn’t want to put in the extra work (Grantham comes to mind quickly) to recruit anyone other than the extremely high profile kids from that area when they could instead pop over to Atlanta. CKS has proven that he will not be out worked when he identifies a kid who he truly wants, regardless of location.

  4. 1mandawgpack

    Coaches are restricted on the amount of time that they can spend with our current players/team (including virtually no contact now outside of the S&C staff) so recruiting has no impact on that aspect of our program

    RumRunnerDoogie PTCDawg If all three wanted to come to UGA, I would take them. Cut back on a TE or WR to make room. You can never have to many stud RB’s, as we have seen in the past.

    DawgByte The Solomon info is good news. Hopefully Trevor Lawrence had an equally good time when he hung out with some of the team.

  7. PatriotVeteran

    PTCDawg It’s their call, I hope they commit soon so our coaches can spend more time with the current team in getting ready for our first game on September 3rd.    After they commit, I hope they get with their HS Coaches and Teachers and prepare themselves to be Early Enrollees.     EE’s have more time to prepare for the 2017 season and be eligible for the huge 2017 Spring 93K GDay       GO DAWGS

  8. PatriotVeteran

    DawgByte Greg Poole Definitely CKS and Coaching Staff are looking under every rock to discover the best players in Georgia plus surrounding states.      If I was one of those great talented players, I’d seriously wouldn’t wait too long, I’d commit to fill that open slot the first time I’m physically talking to CKS or Coaches.     Don’t let someone else fill your slot.

    Hobnailboot aka RobG Bulldawg36 He’s a punter too. Punts the ball and is the first one to make the tackle!#

  10. dawgmum

    DawgByte Greg Poole I think the current commits n the class of ’17 could take a lot of credit for this. Those guys are building a team, in every sense of the word.

  11. DawgByte

    Greg Poole As Kirby well knows, if he convince the Top 20 players in this state to play for the home team and we can cherry pick studs from Florida, Tenn., SC & NC and some western kids then we can build a dynasty. Long way to go though, but the future does look brighter.

  12. DawgByte

    Anyone see the Solomon story? Apparently we made a huge impression on him this weekend. Bama prior to this weekend appeared to be in the driver seat for Solomon, but no longer. This would be a huge get for the Dawgs if we could land that kid. We need serious talent at the DL position.

  13. Reddawg13

    I am glad to see us getting these in state O lineman! I have always felt that there were some really good O lineman here and he is my reason. There is great D lineman, LB’s and DB’s in this state, there are also great RB’s that put up great numbers, to do that against the great D’s in this state there must be great O lineman.

  14. DawgDaddy

    PTCDawg DawgLink “There’s no place like home.”  I have known that since I was a kid, haha.

  15. RobDawg

    Gwinnett is a shade better than Cobb recently so if this kid excels in the Gwinnett youth league that is saying something. Watch out for him.

  16. PTCDawg

    DawgLink  “It felt as if I was home.”… Can’t get much more promising than that!!

  17. lagadawg

    dsw61 Greg Poole I think all the schools that Lawrence is considering will have a lot of Quarterbacks in front of him with a lot of Stars.

  18. Greg Poole

    I think he gets ‘some’ also…just responding to the comment that was limited to 3 players

  19. WalktheDawg Whisky

    Greg Poole Personally.. I think Madden gets some minutes this year… He and Cleveland seem to be “getting” what Pittman is selling at those Interior slots…

  20. WalktheDawg Whisky

    Greg Poole Bulldawg36 Hardin?  Watching he and Allen alternating in the Spring game… Can’t imagine Hardin on the field this year…

  21. Greg Poole

    Bulldawg36  Guessing that he get less PT than those two is not the same thing as “no faith”.

  22. Lucas Rogers

    He deleted it. Evidently his phone has been messing up and he tweeted like “z zz zz flash drive hdhebei” and Jake reuse from rivals was like a little early to be hitting the sauce


    No surprise for me. I clearly stated I wanted him more see than d brown. Kid had the size and the quickness. He will be a contributor for sure!

  24. Bansai buckeroo

    Yeah, I like the fact he is not carrying around a lot of bad weight. He can concentrate on putting on muscle…

  25. DawgDaddy

    Bansai buckeroo All is good, home from early church, just finished lunch and now plenty of time for a nap.  

    The Griffin kid looked real good in his vid I saw yesterday, as young as he is I expect him to weigh at least 305 by time he hits Athen.

  26. Bulldawg36

    I’m doing alright, yup I think put Madden in on goal line situations. He is bigger than a fire truck.

  27. Bansai buckeroo

    Video said N. Gwinnett, Sawanee ga… really doesn’t matter but this is someone we might want to follow… 🙂

  28. Bansai buckeroo

    Cobb or N. Gwinnett?… Anyway what in the heck are they feeding these kids today. He appears to be very athletic.

  29. DawgByte

    Bulldawg36 Doing good and you? BTW, I want to see Madden get PT at Guard as well. A guy that size needs to be given an opportunity to open some holes.

  30. Bulldawg36

    Will Pat Allen, Sam Maddan, Sage Hardin play this year for the Dawgs? Or is it still to early in their development?

  31. Bulldawg36

    Durn. Lawerence just looks very thin. But like you say- he does have a good amount of time to bulk up

  32. Greg Poole

    Bulldawg36  Remember that Lawrence is a rising junior – Eason was at about the same weight when he was that age.

  33. Bulldawg36

    Didn’t know curry was a two star. Pittman is the lineman whisperer. Already got one for 2019!

  34. Greg Poole

    In his opening remarks to campers a couple of days ago Kirby Smart took time to recognize the offensive linemen >> “No game has ever been won without  offensive linemen.”

    He also noted that “Steph Curry was a 2-star recruit but he outworks them all.”

  35. dsw61

    Greg Poole Maybe coming down to a Clemson-UGA battle; with Tennessee, Florida and Oklahoma still a possibility. It’s got to be really difficult for QBs to decide where to go to college. All these 5* QBs want to play early. Certainly they want to be the starter in their second year of college. Wish Kirby could come up with a legit two QB system that would be acceptable to the QBs and would be interchangeable with the OL, RBs and receivers. Eason is likely gone after 2018. Fromm would be in year three in 2019 and Lawrence would be in year two, setting up a QB battle between he and Fromm in 2019. If Fromm were to some how over take Eason in 2018, nothing really changes for Lawrence as he would still have to beat out Fromm. If Fromm turns out to be good enough to start in 2018, he’s probably gone after 2019, clearing the way for Lawrence to start in 2020 and 2021. Best likely case for Lawrence at UGA is he’s the starter in 2019…worse likely case is he’s the starter in 2020. My guess is he’s working out all these scenarios with every team he’s considering. No 5* QB is going to be happy being the backup to another 5* QB for more than two years.

  36. Bansai buckeroo

    Good Morning Folks… Question…. Did Griffin have any offers other than Georgia?

  37. Reddawg13

    Greg Poole He can flat fly and has great hands too. We need to find out who that number 6 is on the first highlight that almost caught him. And check out the O line where he plays, a lot of size there!

  38. RumRunnerDoogie

    Greg Poole FBI is leaning to a possible motive but wont post why because we dont need to open that can of worms on here again. Im sure its all over the internet what they are thinking for people to find

  39. RumRunnerDoogie

    Greg Poole heard of a shooting and just saw the news now. they are calling it a domestic terrorist attack. 20 dead 42 injured in a nightclub shooting

  40. DawgLink

    Here’s to hoping for a healthy return to the field. It would be nice to have you back for game 1 but I want you back 100%. DGD

  41. Jesse1

    Greg Poole “Built to last.” I buy that. For maybe the only time in our post Dooley hires, the bird of doubt is not whispering in my ear. I believe we have our SOS.

  42. Jesse1

    Greg Poole The safety issue is in reality LSU fans throwing foreign objects in the ring.
