not that he cares or anything, BUT I am all in favor of getting Kamara at UGA if he chooses to come to Athens. If he can make people miss on punts and kickoffs, then he will have earned his ship.

@WalktheDawg Whisky @J.H.Dthe only thing with coaching and salaries is that you're not going to make a meteoric rise in salary, either on offense or defense, unless you're moving from position coach to a coordinator.

sorry if this is a repeat of a previous post, but recruiting is a year round deal (thank you SOC).
Years like the next two for UGA will be both exciting and a little depressing. Exciting because of the stud players, especially offensive linemen, coming out of our high schools. Depressing because we can only sign maybe 4-5 of them and so many of them, the great majority of them, will go to play with all of our enemies. Many of them will be a thorn in our side for our enemies. that stings.
I once saw this articulated and empirically proven, so I'll repeat it here for all of us to ingest once again.
If you sign 21 kids in a year, here is what will happen to them. It basically NEVER fails to work out this way (and it doesn't matter what school you pull for either).
7 become starters and impact players
7 become backups and key special teamers
7 get hurt permanently, flunk out, get kicked out because of drugs or something else, get into legal trouble, get tired of football, just get burned out or get into issues with our coaches. these guys also leave the program.
If you're at Bama, the last category is even more inflated because of the "culling of the lumber" principles that Saban employs.
This is the reality though, and we cannot really change it. Go back and research the previous 10 classes, and you'll find that it averages out this way regardless the record of the team or anything else. It's just the nature of the beast.
So, when you see that in 2015 a ton, maybe as many as 17-20 offensive linemen from this state, sign with big time programs and we only get 4-5 of them, don't despair. Don't get mad. Don't get frustrated. Just be glad we can get who we get.
When you live in a state like Georgia, Florida or Texas, you simply cannot get every stud player to come to your school. The numbers are simply overwhelming.
thanks brother SOC. loved the Edoga writeup. Not knocking the kid, but I am so glad Hyatt was not chosen above Edoga. The main thing you mentioned on Edoga is perhaps THE primary reason I would put Hyatt below him in every situation: athleticism.
I have seen Hyatt in lots of situations, but I've never seen him dominate the other team's top pass rusher. NEVER. What does that say to us? if you're going to be considered the very best, then you have to beat the very best on the other team. If you're a corner and can shut down the other team's best WR, then you're the man. Hyatt has never been THE MAN. He has all of the size measurables, but I just haven't seen it on the field very often. I said the same thing about Juwan Jones (UTERD) and Austin Shepherd (BAMA). Neither was ever dominant that I could tell.
Edoga seems to have all of what you want, and the gaps in his game are not glaring. They can be worked on and refined over time. One thing though.......you cannot teach athleticism. He evidently has it in a large way.

@DrTiki @Socrates B. Kronas@SwabbyDawg@Bleudawg@Boi1derwhat hump?

@DrTiki @nickmac6the whole speed vs size thing is always gonna be there. years ago miami made a lot of noise using what basically was 4 defensive ends at all times. the power running games, though, of the SEC won't really allow that, at least on the early downs. Too much pounding on 1st and 2nd downs to be effective.

@Bleudawg @SUWANEEGEORGIA (unfinished bidness)@DrTikithanks buddy. i have a really good friend who is a Roman Catholic, and he talks about giving up some sort of food. I just laugh.

@DrTiki @SUWANEEGEORGIA (unfinished bidness)@goatdawgand the plentiful nature of food is now a problem LOL
@DrTiki @goatdawgthe entire food pyramid crap is nothing but a gigantic lie that our kids and parents have been fed. the best overall diet, not that I am a great example of it personally, is really a diabetic's diet. lots of protein and very low carbs. smaller, more frequent meals rather than 2 or 3 big meals.

@WalktheDawg Whisky @Socrates B. Kronas@goatdawgthe very best football players are kids who have done other sports, especially things like wrestling.
@WalktheDawg Whisky @Bleudawgharper on the OL was around 230.
@DrTiki The Lenten season is not just something for Roman Catholics. Lenten observance dates back to the early church. It was a time period for new Christian converts to study, pray, fast and improving themselves in anticipation of being baptized on Easter Sunday. It's really a preparation period. The whole "giving up" thing has become bastardized in many circles. People say they're "giving up" bread or chocolate or potatoes or some other trivial nonsense like that. The reason it's trivial, to me, is that they go back to it right after Lent is over. If you're going to "give up" something, choose a problem in your life like jealousy, greed, criticism or something that needs to be absent from the Christian's life as much as possible. See if you, or I, can abstain from those types of things during Lent. If we are successful, then we can rid ourselves of them over the long haul. That's what "giving up" is really all about.
sorry for the rant
ok. bauta, park or ramsey for backup qb? i'm saying Ramsey in a close competition only because of his ability to throw the ball. i just can't see mike bobo becoming a huge read option qb type offensive guy.

ok. I know I know.......nobody cares about women's BB. I know. But what Landers has done (or hasn't done) in the last several years is an abomination. He's never gonna win it all. Pat Summitt is no more in college basketball, and we still can't win the East and consistently beat Tennessee. Kentucky has supplanted us as the 2nd best team in the East. Is that what McGarity really has in mind when he talks about excellence in all of our athletic programs? The graceful exit strategy is long overdue. It's time to take the farewell tour, Andy.

@Socrates B. Kronas @DresdenDawg@AzzKckrUGA-JustPruitt-OperationLockdownGeorgiait's the little things. just one more superior talent every year will help a lot. we have to think like top shelf programs even though we haven't won the mnc yet.
@Socrates B. Kronas @Bleudawg@WalktheDawg Whisky he won the single A title in GA.
