@WalktheDawg Whisky He'll be fine.  I'm typing out of turn (i'm not there and I don't know).  I think the issue in Pruitt's defense is effort, hustle, and technique.  It's not "body type".  Grantham would play the big body regardless of effort/ability (I'm sorry, Kwame.  But there was a huge talent gap between you and John Jenkins).  it's easier to give Pruitt what he wants when you are leaner.  But I don't think the weight is a pre-requisite.  Just the effort for the entire drive.

@Dapper Dan Man  @meansonny Good reply.

The good take-away that I have is that he can be asked to do either...
He can be asked to make the big play on a big down where we need "x" number of yards.

But in years past, he was also a deep threat. 
He has that threat to make a single-coverage defender miss and create havoc in a backfield.

I think we'll see him in that ball-control style.
But it only takes one home run a game to leave a reputation for a receiver.
And I do think he'll get that.  He'll that that 1 opportunity a game to destroy a defense.
And over the course of a season, we'll see that yards per catch finally creep up

Consistency might not be there every game.
But the big hits will come.
And his draft stock will rise because of it.

Any late night thoughts on Malcolm Mitchell?

Are we going to see the amazing possession receiver that we've seen the past few years?
Or, is he going to be the type of player that we wish we saw from a full 14+ games from AJ Green?

@TXDawg I think 71 yards led that game and 45 yards was the leading receiver as well.  Go Dawgs!  Showing out.

Does anyone have a comment about how Boss looked today?

I caught a minute of the game, and no Dawgs were in (looked like a showcase of louisville players for whatever that means).

I couldn't keep the wife's attention with it when the Dawgs weren't on the field.

@JHD=Keep ADGM @meansonny @TXDawg Awesome.  I've got my fingers crossed on this one.  From the sounds of it, we have definitely put our best foot forward with him.  Nothing left in the tank and we can't have any regrets.

@Lakedawg I understand where it comes from.  One podcast in particular with a guy named "old dawg" is one that drives me a little nuts.  He acts like Richt/UGA goes out of their way to de-emphasize OL recruiting.  He's got a podcast and I don't.  He might know examples or things that I don't.  But this isn't a draft.  This isn't a salary cap.  Recruiting a kid and the kid saying that he wants to go to Stanford is not de-emphasizing OL.  Recruiting a kid and having him flip to Ole Miss after an official is not de-emphasizing OL.  Recruiting a kid and having him not qualify is not de-emphasizing OL.

@therealdray He used to be our running backs coach.  That usually goes hand in hand with being a top recruiter (of course... he was pushed aside, so it obviously wasn't clicking on that level.  but we still thought enough of him to try him there).

@SUWANEEGEORGIA (WelcomeCoachSchottenheimer) @Bleudawg @Socrates B.Kronas: Is For Sale @Lady C @JHD=Keep ADGM This is a common theme on boards and podcasts.  Maybe I'm completely wrong on this one.  But the argument against richt on this one is based on the results... not the reality of how recruiting works.  I pull my hair out when people say he doesn't care about recruiting the big guys (and yes... the results are far, far, far, far from where they need to be).

@SUWANEEGEORGIA (WelcomeCoachSchottenheimer) @Bleudawg @Socrates B.Kronas: Is For Sale @Lady C @JHD=Keep ADGM That's not how recruiting works.  This isn't a draft where each team picks their need on a round robin basis.  I don't understand how people say that mark richt doesn't care about offensive linemen or that he doesn't prioritize them in recruiting.  I understand that our results in recruiting are the basis of this thought.  But this isn't a draft.  This isn't a salary cap.  Go after everyone and focus on the kids who seem like a good fit and are willing to listen.

@Mae_ka_dudi @highcotton @Socrates B.Kronas: Is For Sale @ColumbusRednBlkDawg We had a ton of youngsters step up in 2011 (Bennett, Mitchell, and Conley had a few clutch grabs).  But they were incapable of developing into All SEC performers (possibly because all of them have fought the injury bug in their careers).

Is the lack of All Conference because of recruiting, coaching, or injuries (throw Marlon Brown and JSW into the mix regarding injuries).

@Bleudawg I'm only half watching the game.  I understand crowding the line... but it looks like the  Buckeye running game is working too (not just the QB making things happen).

@SUWANEEGEORGIA (WelcomeCoachSchottenheimer) I was hoping to see a lot of that type of play with JSW or Mitchell.  Heck... even Sony coming over from the slot.  High completion percentage and getting playmakers in space with an ability to do something after the catch.

@WalktheDawg Whisky  @Cheerwino Yeah.  The promotion from QB coach to OC was a stretch at the time (for a program as big/good as UGA).  But he was obviously a 'rising star' and the investment in him was worth the stretch.  The man has given UGA everything to this point (he might have even lost one of his kids on campus a time or two).

I don't know about that. Swann had a very good sophomore season under Grantham. unfortunately, he was asked to be a lockdown corner in his junior year. And that just doesn't play to his strengths. Pruitt was smart enough to recognize how to use playmakers, though.

Gentry said that there was a great buzz about him when he showed up for workouts.  But that buzz vanished in camp (not a peep from other players about him in camp).  Gentry implied that 'not a peep' isn't bad.  But it doesn't stand out as top scout team member (there can only be one, and I guess it wasn't him).

@Tree1 @meansonny We honestly attacked UF much like we attacked Auburn.  We were not aggressive.  We stood on our blocks and tried to stuff the play when the ball came by (a common way to play against a mobile QB so that we don't open up huge running lanes).  The difference was Florida's ability to hold (legally if you want to call it that) and beat the snot out of us with it.  Maybe we should have been more aggressive.  But aggressive and in the wrong gap can be deadly, too.

@Tree1 I like Carter out there.  But he too has to learn to read plays better.  He got sucked inside a lot and lost contain.  I don't remember looking at him and thinking he got physically handled... but it appeared like he was guessing at times and he guessed wrong.  Playing as a true freshman is tough.  I'd love to hear Mr. Jenkins thoughts on the challenges that Jordan faced and how those challenges evolved throughout his career.

@Tree1 You have to look at how difficult the job is.

Playing the end in a nickel defense (4 man front) has to handle contain.  That is hard enough sometimes when playing a good right tackle.  It gets even harder when you are facing a double-team (we all saw Jarvis Jones get washed way outside in this at times).

Playing OLB in the 3-4 defense (often a 5-2 front against a running team).  There is still the right tackle to deal with, but there is better leverage by the linebacker and less of a chance of an effective double-team.  There is also less responsibility trying to effect a dive play while out so wide.

Playing a star/slot position.  You are matching up against a tight end or Michael Bennett type run blocker.  Even if there is a pulling lineman, you have space and leverage to make a play.

Floyd is a matchup nightmare as a star/slot defender (you can call it a 4-3 OLB if you want when Pruitt's defense plays against a diamond formation / veer formation).  Floyd is going to struggle closer in the trenches in a 4 man front (just like Grantham's defenses struggled against the run when spread out to a nickel defense).
