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.

    Well ya fellas have a good night!!!! I’m having a late dinner tonight!!! It’s dead up in here!!!

  2. Bulldawg36

    Towers answered my question about the silver britches- said that will be a good question for him to ask MCGARITY. Said he didn’t understand why it isn’t happening yet!!!! Go dawgs!!!!

  3. Bulldawg36

    Chip Towers said that he thinks Greyson will start the opener against powder blue!!!

  4. RobDawg

    @mmcsdawg Catalina had to get in 6 more sets of weights before he headed south to Athens. Dude is going to be fun to watch if he can live up to the expectation he has set with his shows of strength. I can’t wait to see if he’s as big and nasty as I think

  5. DawgDaddy

    Bulldawg36 Them, ewe tee, Awbern and Tick those four make a great season with us beating all.

  6. RumRunnerDoogie

    Lucas Rogers there was a recruit question down a bit im sure u will be able to put some insight into it if u havent already

  7. RumRunnerDoogie

    MMCSDAWG RumRunnerDoogie dawgmum Bulldawg36 could always be  a puddle pirate and join the coast guard haha


    RumRunnerDoogie MMCSDAWG dawgmum Bulldawg36 Yeah, I know, that why I got the heck out!  This PC Navy of today is not what I signed up for!

  9. RumRunnerDoogie

    MMCSDAWG RumRunnerDoogie dawgmum Bulldawg36 dontcha know thats not around anymore. probably the sailor who ordered a wine cooler hahah


    Bulldawg36 Wimms is listed in the current Directory and according to some, he’s already in Athens!

  11. RumRunnerDoogie

    Lucas Rogers Greg Poole and after i talk about him he shows up….now where did i put that tin foil hat


    RumRunnerDoogie MMCSDAWG dawgmum Bulldawg36 Dont’ ask don’t tell!!  like the old military days!   Liquid lunches were a regular routine during my 22 years in the Navy!

  13. RumRunnerDoogie

    MMCSDAWG ZippyMorocco RumRunnerDoogie dawgmum Bulldawg36 u dont drink rum? are u sure u were actually in the navy?


    Lucas Rogers Greg Poole According to Kirby it appears all is good, all the new incoming freshman are currently listed in the UGA student directory, including Wims, the only one missing is Catalina and from what I’ve read it appears he’s good to go as well and will report Tomorrow!!


    ZippyMorocco MMCSDAWG RumRunnerDoogie dawgmum Bulldawg36

    I hear that…  I don’t drink Rum either, that’s why the bottle has been sitting in my desk since one of my workers brought it to me as a gift from one of his cruise ports!   I like Corner Creek and i too would much rather have a Bourbon or Blended whiskey any day!

  16. Lucas Rogers

    Frankly I think Georgia takes 5 OL. Netori, Justin Shaffer, Demery, Thomas are 4 I think UGA gets. The other spot could be tricky, but I think they try to go JUCO route. Have to see what all happens with Baker.

  17. ZippyMorocco

    MMCSDAWG RumRunnerDoogie dawgmum Bulldawg36 
    I drink bourbon, Corner Creek reserve to be exact. I drink a lot of it. I think I should set up a GOFUNDME account to cover my vices.


    RumRunnerDoogie MMCSDAWG dawgmum Bulldawg36

    Oh, by the way RumRunnerDoogie I do have a small pint bottle of Bacardi gold in my desk drawer here at work!  Come on by…


    So when exactly do the players report???   Tomorrow or Thurs??  Let’s get them all on campus and get this party started!  #ATD

  20. RumRunnerDoogie

    MMCSDAWG RumRunnerDoogie dawgmum Bulldawg36 drove by the bacardi bottling plant in jax yesterday, almost passed out from excitement#

  21. RumRunnerDoogie

    not UGA related but this is awesome. got to give mad props to my brothers from south africa for helping canada during that massive fire

  22. RumRunnerDoogie

    dawgmum RumRunnerDoogie Bulldawg36 those who donate would be unbannable 🙂

  23. dawgmum

    RumRunnerDoogie dawgmum Bulldawg36 I think we’ll have to get everyone to pitch in, but I’m sure we can work something out.

  24. RumRunnerDoogie

    DawgLink i will miss him, it was a fun drinking game when he would mess up a name

  25. Bulldawg36

    Nope it’s not too much to ask for!!! Beating Fla..SC and Tennessee would be an excellent start to kirby’s coaching tenure

  26. DawgLink

    He’s a pompous old bag. Most of the time he doesn’t even know who the players are

  27. dawgmum

    Bulldawg36 I want that, plus a major @ss kicking of Tennessee. Not too much to ask.

  28. Bulldawg36

    Make him run till he decides that being a Bulldawg is much better than breaking the law!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. BenKellam

    Greg Poole Just make him do some extra stadium steps. He had to drop a little bad weight if I’m not mistaken anyway. Two problems solved.

  30. Bulldawg36

    Anyways I dislike periscope- they want to much info. I already downloaded the app and it still won’t work. I’ll wait til it comes out on YouTube

  31. BenKellam

    ZippyMorocco BenKellam BahitsAgain Its going up so fast that I’ve lost track since $cam got paid.

  32. AlphaDawg

    BenKellam BahitsAgain  Given current events, I’m sure their bagman funds are going to good lawyers.

  33. BenKellam

    BahitsAgain Tennessee is gathering funds. They may be a bit skittish to go blowing big bucks on these recruits with all of the recent events and sniffing around knoxville that the NCAA is surely doing right now.

  34. RumRunnerDoogie

    Bulldawg36 bob is gone for obvious reasons, lucas is probably trying out the latest inflatable, and heath i have no idea greg might have more of a idea with him

  35. Greg Poole

    Frankly BTW – look for UGA to continue to take smat, in-state PWO linemen. The Hope Scholarship is a great recruiting tool for bright kids who are projects. Take 2 or 3 PWO OL each year and in three years you have a built pipeline of RS junior contributors.

  36. RumRunnerDoogie

    Frankly all our crootin’ experts are on leave lol. time for me and greg to shoot blindly with this

  37. Bulldawg36

    I’m going with slightly better. But UGA historically has been a great running team. We’ve never been good when we couldn’t run the damned ball!!!!!

  38. BahitsAgain

    Greg Poole I know we aren’t supposed to put too much on G-Day games, but the passing looked very hopeful.  I say we are much improved through the air this year.

  39. RumRunnerDoogie

    MMCSDAWG this type of surgery imo isnt something that u shake off and go play football again

  40. Greg Poole

    Frankly  I expect Demery to commit fairly soon, Thomas and Gray looking good. Not sure about the others

  41. Frankly

    Greg Poole
    It was so anemic last year that it can’t help but be better in 2016.

  42. Bulldawg36

    Yep! He has the size and expereince to make a run at the starting LT position!!!! I’m glad UGA got em and not bummer!

  43. DawgDaddy

    Bulldawg36 I am looking forward to seeing him, great coaching should make him into a really solid NFL draft choice.

  44. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole Not to be throwing stones but it certainly doesn’t sound a lot different to me.

  45. BahitsAgain

    Greg Poole It is interesting that Georgia had according to 247, better recruiting classes than all of them over the last 5 years except for Tennessee in 2015 (one lower), 2014 (one lower), Floriduh 2013 (3 vs 12), 2012 (4 vs 8)

    So, if coaching makes a bigger difference than recruiting, and we have the coaches we think we have vs. those other guys…..

    Ok, experience QB is usually worth a few games as well as other experienced players.  Still, interesting stats.

  46. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole Doesn’t matter who calls it deserving or not, UGA was the undisputed MNC champ for the 1980 season.


    DawgDaddy BahitsAgain Yeah, let’s see where teams are come Feb next year, something tells me the usual suspects will be at the top as usual.  Teams like Miss St. and Kentucky will be middle of the road as usual!


    Greg Poole I would replace the Ga Tech game with the UNC game.  The UNC game for me would definitely qualify as a “Swing” game.  This game will set the initial tone for the new regime.  Win and things are off to a great start, Lose and the speculations and lunatic fringe of the fanbase will be out in full force.


    Greg Poole Kid comes from a rough part of town here in Jax.  The thing that has impressed me the most is his dedication to loosing weight and staying out of trouble.  I too believe this kid might be a diamond and once he get a couple of years in the Pittman OL training factory, he could be a really good one!


    Reddawg13 MMCSDAWG  Right…  He did nothing but deflect and make excuses, he did nothing in the way of accepting accountability.   I don’t mind teams that operate in the gray areas from time to time, we know they all do, but don’t preach to me about honesty and integrity when you are knowingly cheating!  There is no doubt in my military mind that He is a liar and a snake!

  51. Reddawg13

    MMCSDAWG I am not a Hugh Freeze fan at all! He is crooked as a Barrel of fish hooks!

  52. DawgLink

    Just read an article about Tee Higgins. We’re not in his top 5. Did we just go a different direction?

  53. Reddawg13

    Greg Poole Don’t sell Pittman Kirby and these guys short, they know all eyes are on them and they are getting great coaching and great S&C. They may not dominate but will be effective.

  54. Reddawg13

    Lucas Rogers Greg Poole I like that drill, drills like that may also help against GT and their low blows!

  55. Reddawg13

    Greg Poole I buy into that, he is a physical specimen! If he gets that heart right, watch out!

  56. Reddawg13

    Bulldawg36 I commit to you that I am Bulldog Bred, Bulldog fed and when I die will be by god Bulldog dead!

  57. Reddawg13

    Bulldawg36 me too, since they committed a crime, but won’t matter, Bama will plug in the next star and keep going.

  58. Reddawg13

    MMCSDAWG Bama will move another stud in and keep rolling. I want to pilfer some of the stars that de-committed from Baylor.


    ZippyMorocco MMCSDAWG It is for now, but I was more referring to the Ole Miss and Baylor stuff with regard to the NCAA…

  60. Bulldawg36

    Ole miss should get 4 years without no bowl games & can’t compete for any championships. Lose about 36 scholarships in 4 years!!! I wish they would get worse tho!!! Lower the boom on em!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    So with all the Baylor and Ole Miss news, Ole Nick Saban and Alabama are enjoying the diversion.  So what is the latest on the two young fellows that were arrested for illegal possession of a Gun and illegal possession of a Stolen Gun, and oh yeah, while they were in a park smoking weed???   I’m sure Alabama is still conducting an internal investigation into the details of the case…  Seems pretty cut and dry to me.   Hello NCAA…  You have some serious issue that need to be dealt with ASAP! (yeah right…)

  62. Bulldawg36

    Well and they shouldn’t be- but how’d they get in his top ten so fast. Didn’t even know he was considering him.

  63. Lucas Rogers

    MMCSDAWG Lucas Rogers most guys don’t like people knowing where they’re going to commit. Adds more suspense with this

  64. Lucas Rogers

    MMCSDAWG Lucas Rogers Also Andrew Thomas had a great visit with his family as usual. Georgia has a good lead here


    Lucas Rogers MMCSDAWG I’m hoping it’s more misdirection and smoke than anything else!  hoping!

  66. Lucas Rogers

    MMCSDAWG Lucas Rogers Jacoby’s tweet was kind of interesting. I don’t like him opening up the decision date, just because the sooner he decides the better for UGA. We need to get him on campus 1 more time this summer. This could all be a smoke screen though lol

  67. Bulldawg36

    That’s great fella! How far is Savannah from you? How unfortunate that the dawg fan is with a tiger!!!!


    Lucas Rogers Morning Young buck!  Anything interesting happening with recruiting you know of???  lol


    Bulldawg36 Pretty good, had great time with the kids and grand kids on Sunday, me and the woman made a day trip up to Savannah yesterday…  Met a nice younger couple, he’s a dawg and she’s a Tiger (LSU)…  talked a LOT of football!


    Greg Poole Huge!   i can’t remember have this many quote “Lineman” camps…  Is this usual or new.  The whole format seems new to me!


    Bulldawg36 Better than 6 though!  We are within striking distance and the New players report this week!!!

  72. Bulldawg36

    I ready for some UGA football baby!!!!!!!!!! 3 months is a long way to go!!!!!!!!!!!!


    ZippyMorocco MMCSDAWG DawgDaddy Morning Zip…  Hope you had a great holiday weekend!

  74. Greg Poole

    DawgLink  I’m guessing it was a “hire the new coach and we’ll let you resign” type of deal.

  75. DawgLink

    Sour milk. I read the other day that the coach saying this was Hugh Freeze. Idk if true though
