Greg is closing in on 11 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.

    Greg Poole RumRunnerDoogie yea i was going to say they seem like they are huge recruiting events instead of a 7v7 event

  2. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    MMCSDAWG AlphaDawg everytime Herschel ran the ball it could be considered targeting

  3. Greg Poole

    RumRunnerDoogie >> It is a lot easier for me to cover them now. The morning session are only about 3 miles from my house. Kirby has put a lot more into them also. He has all of the coaches there and he is using the camps as a big recruiting event. 

    The coaches are using it as an eval event. Pittman was getting on a kid this morning – “If you don’t go full speed I can not evaluate you.”

    One thing you can count on is that Kirby thinks recruiting constantly. If you want to predict where he will come down on any topic, look at the recruiting angle.

  4. RumRunnerDoogie

    Greg Poole RumRunnerDoogie dont remember hearing this much about them, granted u do live in athens now

  5. Greg Poole

    RumRunnerDoogie Richt started them – can’t remember when but I know they have been around for several years.

  6. Greg Poole

    There was a little tussle between Mountain View and Collins Hills this afternoon. The golf cart was pulled out on the field between the teams.

  7. Greg Poole

    Bleudawg I think the Smart hire may have been initiated over ADGM pay grade. There are a lot of influential folks who are not happy with him but I don’t think the athletic board is ready to dump him – yet.

  8. Bleudawg

    Greg Poole Bleudawg Im still a little butt hurt about CMR and how he was treated by the admin. (I do support CKS 110% and am happy to have him).  Im also not trying to start any CMR discussion, but ADGM has his little red wagon hitched to Smart so Im thinking whatever he (CKS) needs will suddenly become available.

  9. Greg Poole

    Bleudawg  It funny. I was on the phone talking with someone about ADGM when your comment popped up on the thread.

  10. Bleudawg

    I know many on here are NOT McGarrity fans. I have in the past called for his head on a number of occasions.  Im wondering however if current circumstances might indicate hes the best guy fir the job (as far as football goes).  At no time do I remember an ADs career so linked to the success of a particular staff. I doubt CKS will struggle to get whatever $$ or policy changes he needs (w/ in reason).  Yall let me know what you think. I know its crazy but think about it for a second then have at it.  FWIW I have trouble stomaching the idea but …….

  11. Score Check

    BahitsAgain
    Looks like Trenton Hatfield (#2031) has fallen as far as he is going to.

  12. MMCSDAWG

    AlphaDawg Notice the head drop by Herschel?   In our current state of the game, I believe that should be called an offensive penalty…  Stop it at 13 sec mark and tell be he isn’t leading with the crown of his helmet..  I know I’m going to get blasted, but my current pet peave is that offensive players get away with dropping their helmets and/or leading with the crown and should be called targeting both ways!

  13. 1mandawgpack

    BahitsAgain  Probably didn’t do the camp circuit.  That’s what caused big Trent to lose the #1 spot in the rankings last year but then he was so dominant at the Army All American game that several services moved him back up.  It’s a grind for a lot of these kids to do these camps given that they have to travel to get there, spend the night, etc.  It gets both super expensive and time consuming.

  14. BahitsAgain

    check out the kid at 98 – Jaylon Johnson.  He climbed 406 ranking spots on 247 composite. He must have balled out at a couple of recent camps.

  15. BahitsAgain

    Hey BI gurus, looking at 247 composite and the up down rankings arrows, what did DG do to fall 24 in composite rankings?Deangelo Gibbs, #35 down 24 – http://247sports.com/Season/2017-Football/CompositeRecruitRankings?InstitutionGroup=HighSchool

  16. MMCSDAWG

    DawgDaddy MMCSDAWG I’ve had over a dozen eagles from the fairway…  I’ve been trying for 55 so I’m feeling confident! lol

  17. DawgDaddy

    MMCSDAWG Keep trying, I have had 4 eagles from the fairway before getting that elusive HIO last year.  It took 67 years so at that rate I am not thinking I will be getting another haha.

  18. MMCSDAWG

    DawgDaddy MMCSDAWG Hey there DD…  I didn’t get that every elusive hole in one this weekend, but I did knock one in from the fairway on # 14 from about 120 yards for an Eagle on a par 4, I’ve done that numerous times in my life, but never the hole in one.

  19. DawgDaddy

    dsw61 I think ut is still overrated, their best win during the booch era is over us last year and even though we won 10 games we were unranked.  Booch has got to prove to me that he can stay out of the way of his team.

  20. Greg Poole

    I think Pittman spent the most time with Caleb Chandler and Mike Edwards while I watched.

  21. MMCSDAWG

    Greg Poole MMCSDAWG +++  sounds like I need to find out more about this young Mike Edwards!

  22. Lucas Rogers

    Trevor Lawrence getting some CB’s to Georgia. Starting to look good there but still worried about that Clemson visit coming up. Kirby will be at the satellite camp Wednesday at Cartersville too

  23. dawgmum

    Bansai buckeroo Ha ha, I was just thinking that he has an interesting definition of “commitment”.

  24. Greg Poole

    MMCSDAWG
    Sattersquatch is there – Caleb Chandler – Nigel Scott (Deerfield Beach) – Mike Edwards +++

  25. Greg Poole

    Was just chatting with Jake Reuse and Jake Rowe at CKS Camp OL field. All agreed today had the best talent yet and you could make a SEC OL from the guys on hand.

  26. BahitsAgain

    Greg Poole Judging by the G-Day game, that record is going to fall quickly and be surpassed often this season… regardless of which of the 3 QBs we have playing.

    New OC and totally new strategy.

  27. Reddawg13

    DawgLink Just like me yelling all last year let Godwin throw from the Wild Dawg and then in the bowl game Bam!

  28. BahitsAgain

    AlphaDawg WalktheDawg Whisky We put 24 on him.   When I went to look that score up, I was stunned with our offensive trend last year.

    51
    31
    52
    48
    38
    10
    31  Chubb go hurt at the beginning, but we still got 31
    9
    3
    27 
    20
    23
    13
    24

    We started out like a rocket, then our engines seriously sputtered.

  29. Bulldawg36

    I truly hope they want em but I believe that boat had sailed. They probably want a young business man

  30. MMCSDAWG

    Good morning LH/BI com padres!  Little late getting on this morning!  Dang internet problems here at work, had to call in the big guns! lol

  31. dsw61

    WalktheDawg Whisky They’re also getting a pass on having to replace a very good Left Tackle as well as their backup center who played a bunch last year. Their offensive line is getting praised for having experience, more so than they are for their talent level. The reality is that Dobbs bails out the OL a lot with his ability to scramble and short quick passes he throws…especially to Kamara. Bama played the Kamara pass play really well last year, while also holding Dobbs in check from running. Tennessee fans were universally very excited about how they played Bama last year; ignoring the fact that they only scored 7 points up until about the 5 minute mark of the 4th quarter…and ignoring the fact that Tennessee wa socming off a bye week and Bama was playing their 8th straight game. We all know what Bama did to LSU the follwing game after Bama had their bye week.

  32. dsw61

    Hobnailboot aka RobG I don’t think Tennessee…or any team gets both. Sounds like Jones is shaping up to be a OSU-Tennessee battle. Lawrence is hard to read. I definitely think UGA is in it. I suspect Tennessee’s offensive system is an obstacle for Tennessee, and the same could be said for Clemson. Clemson also has a 5* QB committed for 2017; and all these kids look at the depth chart. It doesn’t mean they’re afraid of competition, it’s just means they’re being smart. I also think Pittman’s O-lIne history may help Georgia some.

  33. Reddawg13

    Greg Poole The answer is No. We will never replace Murray. We will however have great QB play from Eason and Fromm. And then from Jones or Lawrence.

  34. AlphaDawg

    WalktheDawg Whisky  AlphaDawg Absolutely. Also, UGA beat Shoop already this year with a system he’s had time to build. Personally I think Butch has this season to go 8 wins or more. Go 5 or less, he and shoop might be looking for a new gig together.

  35. WalktheDawg Whisky

    AlphaDawg I don’t disagree that UT should be the preseason pick…  I get that UGA was expected to do well with a new OC..it was assumed that the guy would be implementing the CMR system anyway and that CMR always had decent QB training/development. That does not apply in this UT transition. Now I think the new DC is a significant upgrade..but you have to think that they are going to have some issues.

  36. AlphaDawg

    Hobnailboot aka RobG As much as I want UGA to take Lawrence and another QB for 2018, I don’t think Lawrence is going anywhere that’s taking two big QBs. I’ll take Lawrence solely and be happy with that choice.

  37. Greg Poole

    There is supposed to be another 7v7 tourney today. Temps in the mid-nineties should test their hydration strategies.

  38. AlphaDawg

    WalktheDawg Whisky Same reason we were expected to win the east with a brand new OC and 2nd string QB transfer from Virginia. They’ll write anything to get people stirred up. Let them, I want the Vols hype train so packed, it runs off the tracks, crashes and burns for good.

  39. WalktheDawg Whisky

    How does UT get a pass on the fact that they have hired a new DC this year… Now I would think most UGA fans would think that dumping Jancek upgraded the UT staff…even if they did not replace the guy… but you would think that the “EXPERTS” would at least say that UT will have issues with a new DC trying to put his system in place..

  40. AlphaDawg

    Feels good to be back in the office. Well, I was sort of right, we always get a commit when I’m out for conference week. It fell over the weekend but still, the streak lives on!

  41. Greg Poole

    WalktheDawg Whisky That is funny.  Moral: Never makes assumptions based on the content of a Bama paper.

  42. WalktheDawg Whisky

    Greg Poole WalktheDawg Whisky If you look at all the East teams in the article got 6 votes… So it looks like it is only the East that is counted or 7 schools did not respond

  43. Greg Poole

    WalktheDawg Whisky  All SEC SIDs vote on the East. . Of the 13 votes cast UGA got 6 top 3 votes.

  44. WalktheDawg Whisky

    Greg Poole WalktheDawg Whisky Well then there must have been a bunch of votes for Vandy and Mizzou for UGA to end up at 2.

  45. DawgDaddy

    WalktheDawg Whisky  if it is an east only vote they probably could not vote for themselves.

  46. WalktheDawg Whisky

    Greg Poole 2 first place ..3 second place…1 third place….. I hope that this means they only polled the East Division…otherwise there are 8 SIDs that don’t think we are in the TOP 3…and if this is a East Vote ..which SID in the East did not put UGA in the top 3?

  47. DawgDaddy

    Hobnailboot aka RobG I don’t think that will happen.  I still think Lawrence will be a Dawg.

  48. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole If he has UT at the top of his list, he may not be smart enough to get into UGA haha.

  49. Greg Poole

    Bansai buckeroo  >> I hope that turns out to be true. Right now, I’m not so sure. There are holes to fill and a young room of replacements.

  50. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole The question is will UGA finally replace Aaron Murray with a top quality QB,  our record has been solid each year.

  51. RobDawg

    That’s pretty sobering stat to realize a non qb had longest completion of a distance that should probably be expected of a qb over course of two seasons
