Beauty and the BEAST

Classic City early September Between the Hedges, and a lovely afternoon for the start of SEC divisional play. Only one SEC matchup aired in week one, an instant classic which saw upstart Ole Miss win on the road in Nashville…

No Time to Wallow in the Valley

South Carolina’s flagship institution is not the historic football power in the Palmetto State. That distinction falls to Death Valley, where Clemson edged geographic and traditional rival Georgia 38-35 Saturday night behind five touchdowns by stellar senior quarterback Tajh Boyd….

Camp Opens With Big D Questions

Let’s call it the Johnny Football factor, what happened to our vaunted defense last year. They couldn’t handle their own hype. They couldn’t handle the heat of success. Coming off a difficult transition year and a switch to the 3-4,…

The Strongest Unit

There seems to be no way for GEORGIA to struggle on offense this year. Last season, the Dawgs led all of NCAA football in a key stat: yardage gained per play (7.08). And everyone coming back has started big football…

Welcome to the Jungle

UGA may be having a good year, but we do not have a road win against a rival yet. Florida is a neutral site, and we suddenly own Jacksonville. The Vols came to the Classic City, as will little Georgia…

Homecoming in the Deep South

Vandy and Kentucky, the historic two-team bottom tier in the SEC East and in the whole of the SEC, were regularly alternating Homecoming opponents in the Classic City for many years, with UGA winning every year in the modern era…

Glory in Jacksonville

Jordan Reed, easily #2 Florida’s best football player, surged past the first down marker and toward the goal line very late at the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. Between him and a touchdown stood rugged senior Shawn Williams. Reed went…

Coaching Points: Dawgs Little Bit Off, Gurley On

True freshman running back Todd Gurley tied an NCAA record held by multiple players with his 100-yard touchdown return for a kickoff – on his first career return. UGA great Brandon Boykin, Georgia’s returner from last season, is notably the…

Coaching To Do Lists

1. Retain Todd Grantham as defensive coordinator. He simply does not have the calm enough demeanor of a good head football coach, yet he is perhaps the hottest D strategist in the NCAA. The Junk Yard swaggering D will have…

Georgia Alone Atop SEC East

On a day when UGA played the statistically greatest quarter in our well over one hundred year history of football, much bigger than our win was the South Carolina loss at Arkansas. Carolina’s first ever year and a half plus…

UGA’s Top Ten Recruits

1. Isaiah Crowell -RB 2. Ray Drew -DE/OLB 3. Malcolm Mitchell -WR/CB 4. Christian LeMay -QB 5. Jay Rome -TE 6. Damian Swann -CB 7. Nick Marshall -ATHLETE (May play CB @UGA) 8. Sterling Bailey -DE 9. Kent Turene -LB…

Annual Talent Exodus at UGA

Georgia is first in the SEC in total NFL draft picks over the past ten years with fifty-seven players taken. Twenty-six UGA players have been drafted by the league since the Dawgs last won the SEC five years ago behind…

Get the Picture

Like Larry Munson used to say, Get the Picture, you guys. The television announcers are saying, ” Georgia can’t stop Tech.” Tech scores then shanks an extra point. 35-34 Dawgs. Brandon Boykin has played and tackled well but fumbles the…

Ah, the Prolonged Misery of J-ville

In J-ville, Georgia played with the most heart I’ve seen from us in years in the fourth quarter and came up just short, as Aaron Murray’s fourth turnover of the day (third interception) was picked in overtime and the Gators…

Dawgs in Bluegrass Country

It really sucked. Sitting in Athens in the cold at night coming off a cold and watching Georgia give a game to Kentucky last season. In our last five games of that inauspicious campaign, the Dawgs went 4-1 – yet…

Grantham’s Defense Not The Problem

When Grantham took over as defensive coordinator after last season, Georgia was coming off an 8-5 campaign full of defensive pains. Georgia had had two remarkably poor defensive seasons in a row; resultant: Richt gave Martinez his walking papers. Martinez’s…

Reality Bites

When a promising season starts with by far your best player being suspended. When you go to 0-2 in the SEC and have no real home field advantage. When poor protection, obvious play calling and quarterback inexperience leads to six…
