Well, secondary is going to be an issue and these guys are truly worthy of the moniker "Wide Receiver U." But the thing going for Georgia is UT doesn't have an elite QB or O-line at the moment. That said, Justin Worley had a pretty good second half against the Dogs last year and he's probably as confident as he's going to be all year coming into Sanford Stadium
The AJC Live360: UGA Mailbag brought to you by Kroger is open for business. Come on in and let's talk some bulldogs!
All righty then! See you guys next Thursday on the UGA Mailbag -- brought to you by Kroger. We'll be able to talk about the Bulldogs' impending game against Tennessee! So long, everybody.
OK, so that looks like all the questions for today. I'll hang out a few more minutes if anybody has anything else since I was a little late getting started. So shoot now or forever hold your piece! (or at least until next Thursday)
No, JMonty. Obviously the SEC champion is going to get there. And what if UGA goes 11-1, wins big the rest of its games and SCarolina ends up in SEC championship? Again, anything still can happen.
Malcolm Mitchell still has not made an appearance in practice. Not expecting him to play unless and until he practices for at least one solid week and maybe two. But I never expected him to come back this week. If he doesn't play against Tennessee or Vandy, uou might start considering a redshirt for him.
Gaillard it probably headed toward a redshirt. That's me saying that. UGA doesn't project such things.
Joe, the Bulldogs have much improvement to make to slow down anybody's passing game. But I do believe SC's offensive line is one of the best UGA or anybody will face. The Vols are rebuilding up front and Georgia's playing at home. I'd expected considerably more success pressuring the passer.
No, POAD, I don't think Gurley has an on-field attitude problem. No, he shouldn't have head-butted the SC player. But go back and look at the SC players actions. He comes sprinting across the field to get in Gurley's face and taunt him. What should he expect? A high-five?
aldawg, yes, my guess is Pruitt noticed everything that happened in that game.
I don't know that that's the case, James. SEC won 7 of last 8 national championships and played in all eight. Not sure the league has a non-conference problem.
Dawg350, as Jeremy Pruitt said, if you become a great pass rusher, teams come in with a plan for you. Steve Spurrier, a pretty good schemer, had a plan for him. Same for teams that planned-up for Jadeveon Clowney and Jarvis Jones. Pretty good coaches in this league.
I don't know James. I don't have an accounting in front of me. Jonathan Taylor this year, Sanders Commings a few years back and Montez Robinson in 2010 off top of my head.
I considered Leonard Floyd and Jordan Jenkins outside linebackers. Talking about defensive tackles and noseguards.
Hutson's a great kid and has a great attitude. He takes copious notes about what he needs to improve on every Sunday during film study. He's quite conscientious. He'll handle it differently next time I'm sure.
Georgia has been known as one of the best "vertical passing" teams in the country the last few years. So, yes, I'd say Mike Bobo has some pretty strong reasons why he's not trying to go deep much.
The only entity that takes longer to change policy than the NFL is the NCAA. Can't even get schools in the same league to agree on drug and alcohol discipline.
Nah. Georgia runs a lot of the same stuff. Sometimes it's the same play but with different personnel or out of different formations and with different reads, etc. Like bootleg call that didn't work on the Bulldogs' last possession. They ran almost the exact same play and scored on a TD pass to Jay Rome just two possessions earlier.
I leave the game-by-game predictions to our columnists. But in general I'd say Georgia would win them all or loose two or three more. I wouldn't expect anything worse than 8 wins. But I wouldn't have thought they'd win fewer than 10 a year ago. You just can't ever tell what will happen with injuries and other teams' fortunes.
You can guess what the first letter stands for but the other three are: On. A. Dog.
Neo, I didn't ask him that and didn't see that anybody else did. Probably would have been a good question though. In the future, hit me up early Tuesday afternoons with good questions for the coordinators. It's after practice those days we get to talk to them.
See previous comments. Still a young team with no stars in D-line or secondary. Georgia is going to have to recruit it's way out of this problem.
I don't think there's any question that Georgia's secondary would be better off if Josh Harvey-Clemons doesn't have a substance-abuse problem and Shaq Wiggins doesn't have an attitude problem and Tray Matthews doesn't have behavior issues. They all would have been much more experienced and arguably talent than the players currently playing. But that's speculative.
Your premise is wrong so the rest of your statement is tainted POAD. Ken and I do the exact same things covering Georgia and Tech, almost down to the letter. As for the ACC and SEC, we cover both leagues. But in today's digital age, there is not guesswork involved in what reader interest is. We see exactly what people are clicking on and how often. SEC generates more interest than ACC. That's just a fact.
