The Malcolm Mitchell injury remains potentially the most problematic for UGA. They have depth at wideout but I just don't know that there's another one quite like him.
NeoDawg, the battle for No. 2 quarterback is one of the tighter ones of the preseason. Both guys look good. But I'd put my money on Faton Bauta over Brice Ramsey just because of his mastery of the playbook and the fact that he's a bit of a change-up style wise.
Tim, Isaiah McKenzie already has quite the highlight reel from high school when it comes to returns. Google it up. It'll be worth your while.
Thank you Blue Ridge. Everybody's talking very positively about the O-line.
All that still has to play itself out. Both freshmen look fantastic. But there is so much more to getting on the field at UGA. I don't know how well they're mastering the playbook. But they most definitely can run the football and I suspect both will get a shot to do that this year.
I'd say the latter. I like Georgia's linebackers but I'm not sold on its D-line just yet. No standouts there as far as I can see and Rocker admitted as much the other day. But the LBs can play.
Fenteng's gonna be fine, so they say. Didn't practice yesterday. We'll check again this afternoon. ... To be honest, I haven't noticed a lot with Kennar Johnson. He's out there and he appears to be working exclusively at cornerback.
No update on Malcolm Mitchell. This is just me talking, but I don't expect him to be ready for Clemson having just undergone arthroscopic surgery on July 31. But you never know.
The O-line has made toughness a priority much in the way the Falcons are talking about. They believe they're going to be more athletic overall and smarter. We'll see.
NeoDawg: I think that's going to be the biggest and most noticeable difference. Pruitt has simplified the general concepts so that UGA is not scrambling to get in plays every down. ultimately might not thrill people because I predict more two-deep zone, etc. But nobody will be scrambling for what to do at snap count.
That should of said "night" and day, not "nice and day. Ha!
Oh, it's nice and day with Pruitt and Grantham. Pruitt yells a lot more and is much more hands on. Grantham spent more time walking around looking at his practice and call sheet.
Hello everybody. I'm ready to talk some Georgia football. Whattaya got, Loran?
Hey guys, supposed to end this at 12:30 p.m., so I gotta run. Thanks for tuning in and I look forward to talking to you each week from 11:30-12:30 in this forum. Take care.
S.Carolina's turnaround under Spurrier is due to recruiting. Gamecocks no longer losing best players from its state. That game in Columbia this year biggest of the season for both teams.
LB Ramik Wilson is getting a lot of attention as the SEC's leading returning tackler. And I think Damian Swann is poised to have a good season.
Mason's your man at QB all year if he stays healthy.
I think Georgia will lean more heavily on Gurley early in the season but I expect the Bulldogs to maintain its philosophy of being balanced.
Yes, Georgia altered its training to include more flexibility work. They also incorporated something called "Fusionetics" to address body-specific tendencies for players.
Marshall has looked good but Gurley's going to be the man at that position this season.
Rome can live up to UGA's tight end tradition if he stays healthy.
hopeful, defense couldn't be much worse, in my opinion. One of the better front 7s in football. ... Again, not touching season record yet.
Ray Drew is not a bust. Good kid, does what he's asked, plays where they tell him to play, led down-linemen in sacks last year. People just have unrealistic expectations based on recruiting rankings.
Not sure what kind of policy UGA has on duplicate numbers, but got to be careful with a guy like McKenzie who's gonna play a lot of special teams.
