@goatdawg @SUWANEEGEORGIA (pruitt "pick it up quick") @GJDM = Gurley Just Did, Man @007Dawg=Tuck Fech!!!! @highcotton i think theus has more or less been solid, but I expect a 5 star kid with the size and physical ability of theus to have near immediate positive impact.  maybe I'm just too optimistic.

@GJDM = Gurley Just Did, Man @007Dawg=Tuck Fech!!!! @highcotton just consider this.........juwan james at tennessee was a 4 yr starter but he was no superstar.  he was solid but never spectacular or dominating.

@GJDM = Gurley Just Did, Man @007Dawg=Tuck Fech!!!! @highcotton he wasn't a starter from the beginning because he was necessarily stellar.  he was a starter because we didn't have any other legit options.

Tim Worley--what a talented guy.  To me he was and is the closest thing physically to Herschel since Herschel.  faster than Gurley imho and just as double tough as any we've had here in 30 years.


I respect his situation and what he has gone through personally.  No doubt overcoming alcoholism has got to be tough.


However, I do not agree with him on the UGA athletic drug and alcohol policy.  UGA's policy may be better for the individual athlete, no doubt, in the long run.  But I know for a fact that we're losing lots of recruiting battles because of it.  I don't think it's even arguable on that front.  The only way it works and everyone benefits equally is if the rest of the conference and country adopts UGA's same strict position.

@goatdawg i'm sure we won't run every play, but i wouldn't doubt if we are run heavy in the first quarter.

biggest anticipation of the first game for me?


i wanna see our defense actually line up, look like they're awake and know what they're doing and then hit someone with authority and intensity.

Mr. Clemp-son qb analyst needs to get one big thing.......if you think you can stop the 4 headed monster in our rb corps, then go right ahead.  I don't think you can handle it.  That means you're gonna get burned on play action when you least expect it.  It also means there is a grave threat of just flat out wearing your defensive front down by the mid third quarter.  when Gurley gets tired, we send marshall or chubb or michel in there.  And that, my friends, is something you're not going to be able to prepare for.

ok.  did we learn anything from the weekend scrimmage?  supposedly, scrimmage #2 is the one that will determine who will and won't redshirt and go on the scout team.  I know there are exceptions, but that's how it normally shakes out. 


did anyone unexpectedly stand out?


are there going to be any playing time surprises?

Back when we got embarrassed against west va there was so much comparison made between us and them. Their recruiting rankings weren't even in the same room with us but they ran us all over the field. 28 pts in the first quarter proved to be too much in the end even though we came back.

Recruiting rankings are really just the eye candy for us fanatics. It looks good getting off the bus, but it means nothing unless the potential is realized.

@DrTiki name one qb spurrier has ever coached who amounted to anything whatsoever in the nfl.  i don't think there is one.  that's because he is not an nfl fundamentals guy as far as drop back passers go.  evidently he just doesn't teach it for whatever reason.  maybe he just doesn't care about how his guys do in the nfl.  i kinda think he doesn't want any of them to be better than he ever was.

ok.  it's past time for me to figure out my new smoker.  gotta figure out better how to control the temperature.  the thing is so efficient and will maintain temperatures well, but I can't get the temp low enough and keep it there.  it always wants to creep up even though the vents are barely open.  it is an akorn kooker and has basically the exact same size and properties as the big green egg or the kamado joe but without the exorbitant ceramic price. 


this is the exact setup that I have:

@Ricky "El Gringo" McDurden @Wycliffe Lovelace big time college football is no longer a game where redshirting does much good either for the kid or the program.  possible exception is along the lines of scrimmage, but especially the OL.

@ClassicCityDawg2010 @DrTiki there are several reasons that USUCK has gotten better.  spurrier and his attitude are a big part of it.  once he goes away, things will probably get back to normal.  one big thing is that they are getting lots of kids every year who simply cannot get into uga.  they get tons of kids from Georgia Military college.  They recruit and sign kids that we can't even really recruit like brandon shell.  kid can hardly write or speak.  no way he gets into uga.  the academic standards are so low at USUCK that we don't even talk to lots of kids that they talk to.  the admissions committee simply won't allow it.  that means that our fans wonder why we "miss out" on kids that they are recruiting, many times even from our state.

@WalktheDawg Whisky  @007Dawg=Tuck Fech!!!! now that we have pruitt, it might be a lot more about the coaching that kids are getting rather than the perceived talent level of those same kids.  just sayin

@jddawg36 the early signing period is a good idea generally but with a few caveats or conditions imho.


if a kid signs the LOI in the ESP, let's say in September of his senior year, and the coach gets fired or leaves that team for whatever reason, that kid should have the right to rescind the LOI and look around.  that's only fair.  No penalties for doing it either.  What's good for coaches is also good for the athlete.

@34Dawg Why can't we go back in time like we used to do and get our fullbacks from the ranks of the walk on community?  we were very good at identifying kids who wanted to hit and sacrifice the body.  then we made them earn it and most of the time they did.

i know our offense is the last thing we should be concerned about, BUT I am very concerned about Justin Scott Wesley's return and what kind of shape he'll be in when he comes back.  you can't teach or coach that kind of breakaway speed, and we need it.

goat and I are on it this morning with our braves discussion.  i think gonzalez has to go.  losing medlen and beachy early are NOT an excuse for a pathetic offense.  i think wren may also need to go because he approved of both the Struggla and Strupton free agent signings.  i doubt that gonzalez initiated those things.  both decisions have hamstrung the team in terms of what other moves could potentially have been made to cover for obvious weaknesses elsewhere.  basically, what we have is this:


1.  we have no true leadoff guy regardless who occupies that spot in the lineup.

2.  la stella has proven to me that he can be a good #2 guy because he bats around .300 and makes contact.  no, he's not fast but contact is the deal.  

3.  freeman could be either a #3, #4 or #5 guy.  he is good but has shown reduced power this year for some reason.  

4.  Justin Upton--he is a mixed bag imho.  is very streaky.  subpar defensively though with an arm weaker than mine (48 yrs old).  Nice guy but not a game changing player imho.

5.  gattis--i still don't think he is recovered from the back problem.  he just doesn't seem to have his timing back after the long layoff on the DL. 

6.  heywood---to me the guy is a serious underachiever.  has all the tools but is either unwilling or unable to change his hitting style.  consistently tries to pull outside pitches.  refuses to step into the outside pitch.  has tremendous speed and baserunning skills when he does get on, but he will never be a consistent .300 hitter.  has bad power numbers for a guy his size and strength level.  won't get the big contract he's seeking unless someone like the yankees come calling next year.  looks great getting of the bus but plays at a level much lower than what he should.   tremendous and unparalleled fielder that saves runs all over the place.

7.  chris johnson--last year must have been an anomaly because he has been demonstrably worse this year offensively.  lacks power that you traditionally need from a guy at third and is very average defensively.

8.  simmons is still the best defensive shortstop in the game and maybe the best defender at any position.  offensively is still a work in progress.  he will still finish the year with probably under 15 errors, which is superb for a shortstop in this day and age.


the bravos simply are built like an American league team.  that won't work in the national league.  we need to stop being concerned with home runs and be more concerned with making contact up and down the lineup.  people with the braves organization say "strikeouts don't matter".  that's nothing but BS.  strikeouts matter a lot.  strikeouts are an admission of total failure.  strikeouts are like getting pinned in wrestling.  you've been dominated and made to look stupid.  you can make consistent contact while making outs and still be productive, moving runners over, sacrificing runners over, getting SAC fly rbi outs etc.  if you're not making contact at all, then you're producing nothing at all.  we need an overhaul of our scouting and team philosophy to where we're built more like the Cardinals.  Small ball is the wave of the future because the steroid era is effectively over.

@goatdawg just not enough hitters.  too many strikeouts, not enough homers and at times mediocre defense.  that's a bad combination.  couple that with subpar starting pitching and middle relief and you get a pretty average team.
