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.

    How committed do we think Latavious Brini is? He sure is posting all about Florida and UM on Twitter. I can’t get a read on him.

    Greg Poole Old stuff….you older guys remember the Redskins Heavy Jumbo set, with this exact formation, and The Diesel in the backfield. The opposition might have stopped it once in a while but not most of the time. Couple this with 3-lineman sweeps coming in from the opposite side. Joe Gibbs loved this action set. Running that within the red zone guaranteed touchdowns. I love it when current experts call for this to revolutionize the game.

    Greg Poole  Depending on his choice for his major, UGA may just be the best pick for him all around.   I hope so.

    Greg Poole This is very exciting – having a large number of Big Athletic guys who can run—makes me drool –thanks man !

    DawgByte fesx The LSU vs. Spurriers chickens on the fake field goal was pretty memorable.

    Lol I’m not! It would be great to have him I just don’t think it’s a realistic shot.

  7. JaxDawg

    I’d love to have Warner! Big cat too! I think the only DT we could pull would be that guy that’s committed to USCe

  8. Avon Barksdale

    Really want Big Cat and definitely another ILB or two, maybe Walter Grant? Maybe a DT too

  9. JaxDawg

    Hopefully we close with these guys:
    Swift, Webb, Gibbs, Holloman, McBride, Herring, Tony Gray, and maybe another ILB. This would put us near the #3 class prob. Thoughts?

    You post a video with @TrentSmallwood and deltonadawg and they don’t show up. SMH


    Greg Poole I ran the old Single wing with variations to deadly success in the younger divisions of pop warner…  It is deadly when you overload a defense and keep everyone withing 6-8 yards of the football.  Too many players don’t know how to attack a power running game like this!

    Bansai buckeroo It’s funny reading some of the early stuff, because he tried NOT to be a homer, then one day Coach Dooley had a conversation with him about what it means to the UGA faithful, and how he worked for “our” network, and from then on, the Classic Munson developed.

  13. DawgByte

    fesx My favorite was #2. I remember seeing that game live. I also enjoyed listening to those old announcers.

  14. Bansai buckeroo

    He was unapologetic in the fact that he was a homer…. And we loved him for it….

    I posted this stuff years ago on LHB:

    Five offensive linemen, a quarterback, one running back, one wide receiver on the weak side, and three tight ends to the strong side. For years this formation has been discussed over drinks by coaches as the “dream” or “magic” second coming of classical football. 
    The day when football comes full circle and returns to the 1930s and 1940s. 
    The day when an offense is run the way it was always meant to run, but with the modern twist of the forward pass and advanced theories learned for the last century. 
    Many coaches believe this formation will be the future of football, and revolutionize the way the game is played. Defensive coordinators, like me, consider it a nightmare. It will throw most defensive theory out of the window until a counter can be developed.
    Why is the formation considered by football theorists to be magic?
    The formation looks like a goal line formation. The only way to stop the run is to, likewise, set up a goal line defense. But what happens when those three tight ends, all a half step back from the line of scrimmage, are eligible to catch the ball? The subtle tricks are just as dangerous. Let’s say an opposing team lines up at least one cornerback to cover one of the tight ends. In a run play, that cornerback probably gets knocked on his butt. Not impressed yet?
    Further, in the formation there is still room for motion. There is also room for one or more of the tight ends to line up wide. How about one wide, one slot, one back with the RB, then a motion brings the wide in against the line? All of a sudden a pass defense with multiple defensive backs faces a “jumbo” run play.
    The new formations and the new approach would revolutionize many aspects of football. For example, most teams might have one very good cornerback in a formation (to go against the wide receiver), but place more emphasis on a cornerback/linebacker hybrid player to match with tight ends on the line. The safety position would likewise probably drop to only one on the field. The fullback would vanish all together. Tight ends who further specialize might become “wings” instead of “tight ends”. The tight ends and running back become the emphasis in the offense, not the quarterback or wide receiver. “Wings” would not only catch and block like modern tight ends, but run and block, further leading to confusion.
    Another drastic change would be a shift from the “run vs. pass” paradigm to a paradigm of “power vs. finesse”. The new system could be run as a powerful smash mouth tool, or it could rely on deception and timing.
    There are more potential formation combinations that proceed from motions in a three tight end formation than any other formation in football. Because of the dual role of the tight end position, the formations become more difficult to adjust to. Here’s a simple example. Looking at the above diagram, picture the first tight end motioning to the right sideline before the play. Question: Does the defense
    1. Take the cornerback on the third tight end out to cover the first tight end, while switching the middle linebacker to one of the remaining tight ends (leaving the strong side linebacker to figure out his coverage), or
    2. Have the middle linebacker follow his man all the way to the edge of the field, leaving the middle of the formation exposed to a run?
    Again, like with all other plays, the quarterback simply audibles based on what the defense does. In the first case the audible is for a deep pass to the third tight end, now uncovered by the cornerback. In the second case, the offense rushes the center, the defense now missing the middle linebacker. Wow?
    Another possibility is to line up the third tight end as wide out or in the slot. The defense prepares for a pass, but the third tight end motions up against the second tight end (next to the right tackle). Uh oh, jumbo run formation. Wow?
    Also consider that the third tight end can also run out to the flats overloading the corner back on the right side. Then a pitch to the running back or even a swing pass to the running back would be even more effective. The possibilities are endless.

    Greg Poole It’s interesting to hear what he thinks of himself as an announcer. As a broadcaster it’s natural to compare oneself to others and to use vocal sound as a measure of greatness. As we all know that has nothing to do with true broadcast success. As someone who grew up listening to two of the all time greats in Chick Hearn (Lakers) and Vin Sculley (Dodgers), Larry was every bit as good. The ability of the fan to visualize what was happening on the field and feel the excitement of the game is the true measure of announcing greatness.
