Turman is recovering from a toe injury and is a complete non-factor. Not sure what happens after he returns but I predict a position change for him in the future.
I think Mason is solid and among the least of Georgia's problems.
Based on his conditioning and the scenario of this likely being his last season and therefore an NFL tryout, I'd say he'll go a lot.
Most of the players like what they're getting from Pruitt. But he's the guy in charge now, so you're not going to hear a lot of dissent.
Hicks is the starting tight end at this point. I would guess Georgia won't run a lot of fullback the first week and maybe not this year. Mike Bobo said the Bulldogs went one-back 75 percent of the time last season. Hicks is at tight end/h-back because they want him on the field more.
There won't be enough snaps for all of them. If all five play it'll be because the Dogs are blowing out somebody or something happened with one or more of those first three. Again, my opinion.
I suspect they'd like to have both Mitchell and JSW back for South Carolina in Game 2, Week 3. But Georgia playing Mitchell's recovery very close to the vest.
I think Collin Barber will be given first shot and every benefit of the doubt going forward.
They make a pretty quick determination in preseason camp about whether a player is going to be able to help them that season. After that, they'll reevaluate each spring.
I don't expect Brendan Douglas to get moved to fullback. Georgia hasn't batted an eyelid on that front. Not saying it won't ever happen.
The Falcons reticence to draft UGA players has been a mystery forever. But I'd argue that they'd taken more in recent years.
I like Rumph's attitude and everything he's saying and doing. His issue has always been knowing what to do in during the crunch of game time.
Less than 1% chance Mitchell players, in my opinion. He's not practicing or even running on the field nine days before kickoff.
Based on last scrimmage I saw, Rico Johnson is not going to start. But he's most definitely going to play whether he starts or not.
I don't know how much better the secondary will play, but I definitely expect the communication to improve immensely with the defense as a whole. That's because Pruitt has made it such a priority. Knowing the play and being lined up and ready has been the No. 1 objective for him.
No, haven't changed my opinion on the D-line. I could be wrong, though. Eager to see them in live action against an opposing front.
Trolls make reading the comments very un-enjoyable and, quite frankly, I come away disappointed in my fellow mankind. I can't for the life of me figure out what kind of person wants to do to sit there and agitate fans of another school. But free speech is a big deal in this country, so we let 'em go unless they cross certain lines.
Repeating my earlier answer Neo: Bennett and Conley are your mainstays. Reggie Davis, Kenneth Towns, Blake Tibbs and Jonathan Rumph will pick up the slack.
The feedback on Georgia's O-line has been extremely positive. The word is they're quicker and more athletic overall and they go deeper. Backups Watts Dantzler and Mark Beard could easily go with the No. 1 unit without a fall back. And Greg Pyke seems like a star in the making.
That's a question I need to ask. If he's deemed physically able to play against Clemson -- and he's been going pretty hard in practice, albeit under green jersey status -- I suspect that will serve as his suspension and he'll be ready for S.Carolina. Again, will ask next time I talk to Coach Richt.
Yes, Bennett and Conley are your mainstays. Reggie Davis, Kenneth Towns, Blake Tibbs and Jonathan Rumph will pick up the slack.
Not up on recruiting. Sorry.
