Rumph is cleared to play. That said, I won't know until Saturday whether he made the travel roster. Dogs only travel 70.
Shattle Fenteng will have two more years to play after this season. He only played one play.
Obviously the NCAA has that authority. They've been doing it for a while. Florida basketball player Chris Walker has to or had to do 80 hours of community service. It's mainly a way to defer the student-athletes having to repay large sums of money. I'd imagine they're pretty liberal about the fulfillment of that requirement.
Georgia fans hope you're right.
Like I said before, I think the unknown element of exactly what Florida's offense will look like with Treon Harris at the controls is the biggest factor in the Gators' favor. They throw the ball a little better than most people think. But overall, they're struggling to come up with explosive plays.
G MAN -- I disagree. I don't think Georgia's O-line is underrated. I think they're starting to get their just due.
I agree with you. I believe this will be the best defense Georgia has faced all season. And tailback depth is a real issue. The only difference in this season and last season is it hasn't come back to hurt them. I don't expect Keith Marshall or Sony Michel to play or be even marginally effective if they do. If you're a Georgia fan, you just need to hope and pray that Nick Chubb doesn't twist an ankle or something. And I believe Brendan Douglas is pretty solid.
Rick, not entirely sure about times but the teams always come out of the tunnels on the press box side of Alltel Stadium (or whatever sponsor it's named after this year).
Like anything in college athletics, DawgStyle97, it comes down to recruiting.
Nothing happened Tramel Terry. He's a regular on the travel squad now, playing on special teams and getting a snap here or there. He's just not as good as the guys playing in front of him right now.
The Gators are kind of all-around solid on defense. Their sophomore corner Vernon Hargreaves is as "shut-down" a guy as you'll see, so that basically eliminates one of your targets. Their defensive end Dante Fowler (6-3, 260) is a match-up problem and a factor with which the Dogs will have to deal. They've given up only 23 runs of double-digit yards all year, so they're difficult to gash. It'll just be a day of hard work for for UGA's offense.
Whatever it is, take the over. Obviously you're familiar with the nature of this rivalry. And all kidding aside, penalties really impacted Georgia's ability to slam the door shut on Arkansas two weeks ago. The Dogs need to clean that up. But I'd predict at least one personal foul per team per half in Saturday's game, and that may be conservative.
I've been very, very impressed with the overall improvement of the defense under Jeremy Pruitt. I can't imagine how good it might be once Pruitt gets the players into it he desires. But I do think Florida naming Treon Harris the starter is somewhat problematic for Georgia in this game. Until now, it has been Treon Harris running a Jeff Driskell offense. Now he will be running a Treon Harris offense, and nobody can be sure what that might look like.
I agree with you partially. The fact is, there WAS a paper trail. What separates Gurley's situation with others before him and some going on now is proof, evidence. This whole thing hinges around a cretin coming forward with cold hard facts. UGA had no choice but to deal with it accordingly. No "paper trail" on these other cats.
No, I don't believe that. As I wrote this week, Georgia's offense has averaged 77 more yards and 6.5 more points per game with Gurley than without him. He's a difference-maker and he makes a difference as far as what the Dogs do on offense. But those differences are pretty subtle.
Right now I'm seeing Gurley averaging around 10th in most mock drafts (accuracy aside). I would think he could improve his status some if he comes back, picks up where he left off and leads Georgia on to championship heights. That said, I think the pro guys are very sterile about these things. He is what he is: 6-1, 226-pounds, 4.5 40 running back. He'd likely have roughly the same value to them if he didn't play another game.
They would have to apply for an exception, which is always a possibility. Sort of like the NCAA keeping Gurley's suspension at 2 games would have been an exception and a possibility. Know what I mean?
UGA was hopeful the NCAA might say 2 games was enough, or maybe even 3 games. I'd say the Bulldogs were disappointed, but not surprised, that they made it 4 games.
UGA was hopeful the NCAA would give it a break based on its compliant and forthright response. Alas, the NCAA stuck to its guns and went by its big book, like it usually does. And I think that's unfortunate. I think the NCAA had the opportunity to reward Georgia for its handling of the case and err on the side of student-athletes, who have been taken advantage of for generations. Another public relations hit for the college athletics' governing body, in my opinion.
Justin Scott-Wesley needs to become a factor again, but I'm not sure whether his health will allow it this season. Too bad about the suspension and injury issues because Georgia really could have used him this season. ... I suspect you'll be seeing more and more of Malcolm Mitchell going forward.
No possibility of a medical redshirt for Marshall. Played too much in too many games. Thought they should have gone that route from the outset, but he wanted to play.
No, Brendan Douglas will be the primary backup again. And I'd be surprised if Keith Marshall plays a snap, his "questionable" status notwithstanding. Not gonna be an environment for somebody who is not 100 percent healthy.
