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.

    After reading the article on Dawgnation about Holliman, I think he’s not coming to UGA

    DawgDaddy Greg Poole Shoulda put a couple or 3 more td’s on the Criminoles. Mighta grabbed the AP Nattie. Dawgs were by at least a coupla scores better than tOSU or da U.

    PTCDawg The elite don’t like to be slapped down by the common man.

    I imagine it won’t be as simple as the vote to get the brits out of that remote control they have been in.

  5. PTCDawg

    and a CB for Mark Webb as well. Jake be doin some Dawg love today.

    and in other news..interesting day on Wall Street.

    Greg Poole drats

    I want to see him win the ACC and continue to beat snot out of GT.

  7. RobDawg

    I’ve always said that the OL position is one that as a high schooler and earlier probably got by on pure oversized mismatches throughout his career and didn’t have to worry about technique to much. He likely bullied his way through games with great success. But then get to next level and the guy across the line is about same size and strength as him and it’s a rude awakening. This is where coaches come into play and can develop a star or the player plateaus. Very different from any other position on field. Maybe closest next is DB

  8. BahitsDawg

    RobDawg good question.  Maybe, because they have been the real head of the EU?


  9. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Those things might be the noisiest animal in the woods, first time I ever went deer hunting one was in a tree about 20 Yds from me and I swear that thing had a bull horn he was so loud

  10. Bulldawg36

    Too many dead periods, I bet it don’t stop Bama. They bend the rules as far as they can. They have a plan to get around any kind of rules. Hate em


    DawgByte pretty sure we are in the dead period until like the 10th of july.  no face to face contact allowed.


    BahitsDawg Looks like Thanksgiving dinner might come from the yard this season!  nice pic!

  13. BahitsDawg

    I have never seen a turkey in my yard before.  My wife sent me this a few minutes ago.  Snapped on the corner of my property.

    MMCSDAWG dsw61 Greg Poole Remember that UNC doesn’t have the same talent as last year and needs to grow too.     Who will grow faster, UNC or DAWGS?      I think the DAWGS will do just fine and I wish them the best.    GO DAWGS

  15. PatriotVeteran

    Bulldawg36 You the man 36, expect nothing less than 15 as being very, very successful.     the Dawgs will roll in 2016 and be Hell on Whells in 2017, but first, lets win the SECe and SEC Championships, this year.    It can be done.      We’re behind our DAWGS and if they make mistakes, we’ll expect mistakes to be corrected ASAP and not cause us any major problems.     GO DAWGS

  16. BenKellam

    PatriotVeteran Greg Poole Its not just experience they lack as freshmen. A lot of the time their technique isn’t where it should be and they lack the strength. You don’t want your program to be in a position where they are forced to start a freshman on the O line. If that player earns the start as the season progresses thats fine. Cleveland will be a stud lineman and maybe a pro bowler at the next level but there is no reason to force him to start before hes ready. I trust that Pittman knows what hes doing and will do whats best for the team.

  17. PatriotVeteran

    Greg Poole BenKellam Isn’t competition great?     3 great choices as Freshman and UGA already has 2 great starters.     Nice to have depth and know there’s more coming.    KEEP IT UP DAWGS

  18. PatriotVeteran

    Greg Poole Big Ben and Madden seem to fit into that group but are not.   Why?

    It’s CKS first year and he can make hard choices that the fans can understand.     Put in the best and most dedicated to start.    Whoever is best, play them.       Do like everyone of the Linemen CKS have so far recognized, but do hope that Freshman do have an opportunity to play, IF they just lack experience and can learn this quickly once the ball is snapped a few times.   GO DAWGS

  19. Greg Poole

    Some offensive linemen are born to the position, but the vast majority are made. That is why a good offensive line coach can guide his players where they need to be. Teaching the skills that go into playing the position builds confidence, then confidence grows as linemen win their individual battles. As they continue to win these battles, they gain a sense of pride in a job well done and bolster their passion for the game.
    This desire spreads from the practice field to the weight room to everywhere else as offensive linemen develop a work ethic and accountability that they will carry on with them for a lifetime.
    The camaraderie along the offensive line is different than almost anything in sports. It truly is a brotherhood, and the earlier we can instill that in our players, the better.


    BenKellam LOL!!!  Right, we may surpass that number by the end of the UNC game and if we could still Yolo, I would beat we surpass it by the end of the Nicholls st. game!

  21. BenKellam

    My not so bold prediction of the day. UGA will have as many completions to tight ends after the first 3 games than they did all year last season.


    BenKellam Greg Poole The only knock I ever heard on Holyfield was his ball security, so that would be the only reason I think we would see Crowder and/or Herrien before Holyfield.  Kirby and Chaney aren’t going to take a chance with ball security!

  23. Greg Poole

    BenKellam I agree that Holyfield will get the most snaps but, you’re right, it will be interesting to see who trots out first.

  24. BenKellam

    Greg Poole Now thats a tough one. I think that Holyfield may be the most talented of the bunch but Crowder has had more time in the system. Herrien may be a diamond in the rough. Time will tell but my guess is Holyfield.


    BenKellam MMCSDAWG dsw61 Greg Poole Me too!!!  i think we saw a lot in the spring game to be excited about not only from Eason, but from Chaney and his use of formations and specifically his use of TE’s split out and off the LOS.  He has a lot of tools in his tool box and I expect he will use them all, but with a certain amount of caution or conservatism while breaking in our new QB!  The nice thing is we will have Chubb, Michel and a Pittman coached line to fall back on!!

  26. BenKellam

    MMCSDAWG dsw61 Greg Poole So what I’m hearing is that Eason is gonna go like 35-40 with ~25 of those going to tight ends up the middle and the rest being long bombs to Godwin and Ridley. I’m ok with this.


    dsw61 Greg Poole And if Chubb and Michel are both healthy and playing, that’s the reason I believe Eason will start against UNC…  Your right, they are going to be worried about our running game and starting 2 new LB’s, they will be easily distracted and prone to mistakes in the play action passing game.  Reverse out of the play action and connect with one of our TE’s on a 8-12 yds drag route.  I could see that being a bread and butter play against UNC while still pounding the ball down their throats, they haven’t proven to be very good against the run.

  28. dsw61

    Greg Poole  I won’t be surprised if Lambert starts against UNC. With that said, I have to believe that Chaney is looking at UNC’s lack of experience at linebacker and how Georgia’s TEs could be a match-up problem for them. TEs are big targets and usually involve shorter, easier throws that don’t require much protection from the O-line. Seems like a potential opportunity to put Eason in a situation to be successful.


    Bulldawg36 Me too brother!   Nothing says we can’t win that many, but I will be disappointed in anything less than 9 barring injury.

  30. BenKellam

    dsw61 BahitsDawg I kinda like it. Its fun when they have so much hype during the offseason because then we all get to watch them fall flat on their faces during the season.

  31. dsw61

    BenKellam dsw61 BahitsDawg Some of their fans are holding out hope that Warrior was being sarcastic with that tweet…which is one way it could be interpreted; but the truth probably follows Occam’s Razor:
    “The simplest explanation is usually the correct one”.

  32. dsw61

    BahitsDawg I don’t think I’ve ever seen a fan base that thinks more one dimensional than Vol fans. It’s as if the Vols exist in a vacuum, where no other teams in the SEC are improving….capable of evaluating talent…have good coaches…can coach up players…as well as Butch.


    Greg Poole Pretty much what I would define as success as well…  9 wins is definitely achievable and pretty much my expectation as well, barring major injuries!

  34. DawgDaddy

    MMCSDAWG I kind of try to ignore that part but it is getting dang near impossible to do now.   Go get ’em CKS!

  35. Bansai buckeroo

    @36 the only problem with hunkering down at my age is hunkering back up again…. 🙂

  36. BenKellam

    dsw61 BahitsDawg That tweet was pretty much not open for interpretation. Pretty straight forward.

  37. Greg Poole

    I suspect Jacob Eason, the touted true freshman quarterback, will be the Dawgs starter sooner than later even if it’s not in the opener against UNC. He’s talented, but keep in mind that unlike some other also hyped true freshman QBs, Eason didn’t quite face the same level of competition in high school these other guys did. Adjusting to the speed of the SEC could take more than many expect.
    If Nick Chubb is back to 100 percent, the offense should still be formidable, although they do have to fill some holes on the O-line and there is pressure for a new No. 1 WR (Terry Godwin?) to emerge. Maybe 6-5 JC transfer Javon Wims can be that guy.
    Losing to any ACC team that isn’t Clemson or Florida State in Atlanta won’t look good to UGA fans, but UNC is underrated. I still think the Dawgs win, but the double of at Ole Miss and then Tennessee is much trickier. My hunch is Georgia opens 3-2, but after that things ease up a bunch. They get Auburn and Georgia Tech in Athens and Florida is a fringe top-25 team this year. I’ll say anything less than nine wins would be disappointing.

  38. dsw61

    BahitsDawg Kipps Adams and Jake Rowe have put in crystal balls since the J.R. Reed news broke. Vol fans are hilarious. They’re debating stuff like the meaning of Nigel Warrior’s emoji in his tweet yesterday.


    BahitsDawg I read somewhere, that a major Crystal Ball came our way shortly after the news was reported!

  40. BahitsDawg

    Any word from rocky flop fans after the announcement of J.R. Reed becoming a dawg?

    How are the crystal balls looking for Gibbs?  Any changes?

  41. BahitsDawg

    MMCSDAWG Bulldawg36 GATA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  42. DawgDaddy

    Bansai buckeroo LOL, been there.  I retired in Nov 2007 and by March of 2008 I had lost a third of my savings.  That was rough.

  43. deltonadawg

    Bansai buckeroo Yep they are a disaster this morning and I still have not recovered from the fall from the first of this year.

  44. Greg Poole

    DawgLink  Yep – plus they do not need to be raked over the coals again in the national press

  45. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole Great photos Greg, I was half way through when I discovered there was info on each photo if I just placed my pointed on the pic.  haha

    Love SM1s hat, i bought one just like it 2 weeks ago.

  46. DawgDaddy

    Bansai buckeroo Good Morning Bb

    I just canceled an order for a few hundred shares of VZ,  I will probably buy a little more later today than I was planning.  I wish I had more cash available.

  47. Bansai buckeroo

    Good Morning Folks…..
    The markets are going to take a big hit today. Will be some buying opportunities if you got some extra cash..
