Trae, everybody loves the backup quarterback. But this is Hutson Mason's team, for better or worse. Ramsey has a big arm but right now he's a step down in terms of being able to run the entirety of the offense.
Just interviewing the OLBs, they were disappointed with their performance against SCarolina and, in the words of Leonard Floyd, are "licking their chops" in anticipation of Tennessee's young and banged up offensive line.
Well, I'm just taking into account that Chubb is still surgery to repair his broken left thumb. He'll be able to play without the club this week. But he's still wearing a protective sleeve on it and ball-security risks come with that. So, yeah, I'd say Gurley, Michel, Douglas, Chubb. THIS week.
Yes. I need to get a note up on Shakenneth at some point this week. Talked to Bobo about him Tuesday night and they really like him. They didn't really want to play him this season but he has been promoted because of the depth issues caused by injuries. They feel about him much like they did Chris Conley when he had to be activated about this time of year as a freshman.
Marshall will never be an afterthought. He's highly respected in the locker room and coaches' offices and we've all seen what he can do. BCS football is a results oriented endeavor. If he can't get it done teams will go to the next guy. But they've seen Marshall get it done and know he can do it when healthy. The Bulldogs are glad to have him on their team.
Yes, Tennessee will seek to be balanced like Georgia does. The Vols run a lot of zone-read stuff and have good backs in Fr. Jalen Hurd and Marlin Lane.
No, Jmonty. Georgia plays in the SEC. Those games don't diminish the overall strength. And the Bulldogs also play Georgia Tech every year and teams like Clemson, Boise State, Notre Dame, Colorado.
Well, I wouldn't call Georgia's DL "strong." I'd say they're competitive. Now your OLBs and exceptional edge rushers. But they'll have to do a whole lot better than they did in their last SEC game over at SCarolina. They're motivated this week, I'll say that!
No such thing as a tune-up in SEC play. Well, except for some really, really bad years for Kentucky and/or Vandy. That might be the case with the 'Dores this year. Not the case with the 'Cats.
Scott-Wesley is completing the fourth game of a four-game suspension, in my opinion. How 'bout that?
I think Keith Marshall will remain at Georgia until his draft status is great enough to warrant leaving for the NFL or his eligibility is exhausted, whichever comes first.
Yes. Heard from Douglas briefly last night. He's now the No. 3 tailback and can expect more action. He's a solid player.
UGA is always going to recruit well and always going to field competitive teams as long as it continues to demonstrate stability in the coaching staff. Ask Tennessee how important that is.
Yes, and other than that how did you enjoy the play, Mr. Lincoln? But really, Georgia's not awful in any of the areas and can improve as the season goes on.
It was used fairly extensively against South Carolina. Hicks was in it on the ill-fated play-action play with 5 minutes left in the 4th quarter. Suspect you'll see it a good bit Saturday.
I think Chubb and Michel give Georgia a good starting point around which they can build the offense next season.
Wesley Scott (neighbor down the street) us not. Neither is Scott-Wesley. Though the latter will be next week. Both are difference makers.
Yes, I believe Marshall can get back to where he does. More importantly, Mike Bobo thinks so. It's been about one year exactly since his ACL injury. Bobo says you really need more than a full year to get back to top form after that. Now he's had a little setback. I'd say he'll be in great shape next season.
No, I think you'll see Brice Ramsey and/or Faton Bauta only when the score and situation allow.
No. Not sure what you mean. Justin Scott-Wesley is suspended, though UGA won't suspend as much. Malcolm Mitchell (knee) and Jonathon Rumph (hamstring) are truly injured.
No, Marshall has participated too much in too many games, as I understand it. Dogs talking like he'll make it back this year and they'd like for that to happen. Truly, you can't have too many running backs (see last season).
Sony Michel will take over at tailback next season or at whichever point Todd Gurley is unable to fulfill his duties at the position. Make no mistake about it: Todd Gurley is The Man at tailback for the Bulldogs in 2014.
