Hey everybody. Running a little late and just slid in here. If you have some questions I'd be glad to answer. Holla.
That's all the time we have today, folks. Thanks for hanging out and providing some great questions. I need to go get my fingers soaked from trying to keep up. Many more stories coming this week and another Mailbag Chat next Thursday. C-ya.
No, Chubb is limited by the same rules as everybody else in college football. That is, you can't enter the NFL draft until you're three years removed from high school.
I understand why you can't review every judgment call.
You play your starters and front-line players for as long as you need to. You can't go in with the assumption you're going to handle a team without your best personnel.
Yes, only the most elite pro prospects get consideration for something like that. Talked to some UGA players about it and they don't have a problem with it.
I'd say Rich Rod or Dan Mullen. But who knows?
I'm constantly amazed by Mike Thornton. The fifth-year senior has had a great season as a first-year starter at noseguard.
Yeah, it's a shame. But I didn't have a problem with Gurley being in the game at that point. It was a three-score game at the time and you're trying to get the attention of the CFB committee.
Just a tough night for the receiver corps. Might've had something to do with a cold night and a hard football. But everybody on Georgia's team felt awful for Mason because he was deadly with his accuracy this past Saturday. Just happens sometimes,
Yes, I think that's a realistic scenario, for Georgia to play in Fiesta or Orange if it wins out and gets frozen out of CFB Playoff. But lot of ifs in there.
Can't review penalties, because then whole games would be spent reviewing every penalty.
Chris Conley is a fantastic player, excellent student and citizen and consummate leader. He doesn't drop balls every game. He had a bad day against Auburn. And, if you watch closely, Auburn players got their hands in there on a couple of those.
Not really quietly understood. Me and all the other beat reporters have been hammering away at Richt on it for weeks. He finally admitted this week they were handling it kind of like that did Hutson Mason in 2012. That is, you're not playing him with the hopes of getting to the finish line without having to play. But if things went South real fast and Georgia suddenly lost two or three more tailbacks, he'd be asked to suit up and play.
No, BourbonDawg, it was a dirty, rotten, stinking bad call that still amazes me it was called. Had absolutely nothing to do with the play. Even the SEC official in the box said on TV it was bad. ... Richt also thought Shakenneth Williams didn't step out of bounds on the play and scored. He was prepared to challenge it. Alas, all for naught and didn't really matter.
dawgboy: I think we can all agree Marshall looked pretty special the first 19 games of this collegiate career. So I don't think it's unreasonable to think he could play well enough to get a look at the next level. But we'll have to see once he's 100 percent healthy if he can still perform the way he did in 2012-13.
Every time I've watched Jacob Park I've been impressed with him. I can't really know how he is with the mastery of the playbook, which is the ultimate measure UGA's coaches use. But he's the best they have on the roster when it comes to both running and throwing.
Not sure about UT's chances, but I'd say at least 60-40 being at home.
Nah, Isaiah McKenzie will continue to be part of the Bulldogs' offensive plans as well. One drop won't change that.
I haven't heard anything to make me think Malcolm Mitchell won't be back next season. Like I said before, I think Shakenneth Williams has some explosive ability. And Georgia has recruited and is recruiting some big-time talent at that position, including commitments from Van Jefferson and Christian Owens. Generally, the Bulldogs and coach Tony Ball come up with good players to put on the field at wideout.
I think the odds are very good that Kolton Houston gets another year of eligibility. The NCAA, for the most part, has been trying to champion student-athlete causes. Houston had his first three years taken away under controversial and largely unprecedented circumstances. I'd think they'd show him some grace.
Biggest losses will be David Andrews at center, Michael Bennett and Chris Conley at wideout, Hutson Mason at QB, ILBs Amarlo Herrera and Ramik Wilson, and Damian Swann at defensive back. In terms of ready and proven replacements, I'd have to say center is the No. 1 position of concern.
I simply don't have a strong opinion on A.J. Turman. He's been hurt since he got here and I haven't seen him compete much. But if UGA recruited him to play tailback, one would think he has some skills.
Dunno. We probably ought to get him to do Friday's since Ken does Tech's on Wednesday and I do UGA's on Thursday. Then you'd have your recruiting questions ready for Carvell on Friday. But he's a busy man already on Friday. I'll check on it.
Tweaked his groin a little, but played the whole game against Auburn, so he's fine.
Well, I would imagine DL Lamont Gaillard will get some opportunities to contribute. And while he's playing a little this season, Isaiah Wynn could help on the O-line, maybe at center where David Andrews will be graduating. WR Shakenneth Williams has gotten scout work off and on this season but should figure into the Bulldogs' rotation next year.
Good question. I always thought DeBell would eventually develop into a good SEC lineman because he was so athletic -- even if a little raw -- coming out of Tarpon Springs, Fla. With Ward, you always knew his knees were going to be an issue. At this point I wouldn't expect too much from him.
I'd say call UGA's recruiting office and let them know: 706-542-1515
Todd can have surgery done by any doc he wishes.
