  1. As someone who just isn’t as into basketball as I am with football, I’ve been a fan waiting for a reason to be excited about UGA hoops. Hopefully Tom Crean can build the kind of program that is regularly competing for championships. In a perfect world, UGA hoops has a similar level of potential as UGA football. But we don’t live in a perfect world and I don’t expect college basketball to suddenly get cleaned up. Crean has a track record of success and doing it the right way, so I’m hoping for the best here. In any case, I think he will do a far better job with on court results than Fox did.
  2. Been a bunch of kids visiting UGA but not much to report on. It’s that time of year where offers are going out like crazy and I’m kinda waiting to see how the board shapes up. I’m really looking forward to the Pruitt stories, personally.
  3. I’ll never understand why UGA doesn’t just go out and get a great coach for basketball. With all the b-ball talent in the Atlanta area in particular, the football program becoming one of if not the hottest programs in the country, all the attention that comes with that... a school with a reasonable path to the NCAA tournament. You’d think it would be an appealing job to a lot of good coaches. I just don’t trust them to make it happen. The big boosters don’t care enough about basketball to force a change like they did in football and Howdy Doody AD Greg McGarity is incompetent at best.
  4. They also said Justin Fields was definitely going to FSU because of Jimbo. I think that counts as a big 0 for 2 on that one.
  5. He doesn’t hate the SEC, he’s just a spineless shill for his network. When he was at ESPN he talked up the SEC all the time. Coincidentally, ESPN has a huge contract with the SEC and even a dedicated channel for SEC coverage. Ever since he joined Fox Sports, Cowherd has dumped on SEC teams every chance he gets. Coincidentally, Fox Sports has contracts with every power conference except the SEC. Their audience eats it up because everyone who isn’t a fan of an SEC team thinks the conference is overrated and every program is dirty. The only constant is his lovefest for USC. Brando does the same crap. It’s embarrassing.
  6. You said do do lol Sorry haha, anyway... I can see what you’re saying, but there are people who have done that for years if a kid isn’t a major contributor early. It’s just part of the experience at this level of college football. Ultimately, I think Campbell is our highest rated pure DB that we’ve ever signed. All the hype and expectations comes with the territory. Every highly rated RB we’ve ever signed since Herschel has been propped up as the next Herschel. Sometimes we get a Gurley or Chubb or Michel... sometimes we get a Caleb King or Jasper Sanks or Isaiah Crowell who don’t live up to those expectations for various reasons - sometimes injury, sometimes the guy just being a moron. I don’t think Campbell will be fazed by it honestly.
  7. Dang it Sac, you’ve got me reading on Volnation and I’m dying over here... There are a few pretty levelheaded folks in those threads but my gosh man... a couple of those guys expect UGA to be the third wheel to UT and UF “again” by 2019 or 2020 at the latest. Like they don’t realize UT only has a one game lead in the all time head to head record and we just completely dismantled them last season. These poor saps are gonna be mighty disappointed when a #3, #1, and another likely #1 recruiting class are all coming into their own in 2019, 2020 and beyond.
  8. Fans set unrealistic expectations on players all the time. I don’t think talking about Campbell being as good as Champ or the best since Champ is gonna affect a **** thing one way or another. I don’t know if Roquan will go down as the best UGA LB of all time. Certainly one of the best. But that’s a pretty stiff conversation with some guys who were flat out scary. I loved watching Roquan last season but I think we are bringing in guys who can play just as well eventually. Whether they get the hardware or not idk. People stopped saying Bama will have trouble replacing their stud defensive players several years ago. We are bringing in some very special talent and the expectations are going to be very high. No way around that. We are recruiting at a level that produces some of the best players in school history.
  9. With his brother being an FSU legend and Miami fans going at him from early on about not being good enough, I can understand the beef. You’re probably aware of things I’m not so I won’t dispute any of what you’re saying. Just that I can see why he would trash Miami especially when a Miami player is trashing UGA and him in particular like what happened in this particular event.
  10. I’m at a complete loss for how smarmy most Florida fans seem to be. Even after getting thoroughly destroyed in Jacksonville, missing bowl eligibility and hiring a head coach that has never won anything or beaten good teams as a head coach... they think the division still runs through them. Some of them understand where their program actually is but good grief the amount of UF fans acting like they have bragging rights is incredible.
  11. Definitely agree! Two epic games. So hard to believe that was 12 years ago though... sheesh.
  12. Trezman Marshall will also be on campus this weekend. This commitment could pop pretty soon.
  13. He changed his Twitter bio to read “Committed to ATD(dog emoji)” so I think he will be on the commit list pretty soon.
  14. Expect Luke Griffin to decommit before long. Hate for the kid he already has 2 bad knees in high school but it sounds like we intend to go a different direction.
  15. Top flight RB Noah Cain will be on campus this weekend. Says he doesn’t have a list of his top school choices yet but UGA sits in a very good spot and he has the best relationship with Dell McGee. I believe he’s also friends with UGA commit Nolan Smith.
  16. Wow I hate that for him. ATVs (or “4 wheelers” where I come from lol) can be so much fun but also so dangerous. I know he will push through it, but man is that hard news to hear. Wishing him the best ahead.
  17. Wildgoose ended up at Wisconsin btw. Thought that was great for him, he should play in some big games and get developed. Wisconsin always seems to do better on the field than their overall talent level would suggest. Good coaching.
  18. Stud RB and friends with Zeus if I’m not mistaken. I think we have some ground to cover with him though, our RB depth chart is pretty stacked. We are going to go after these top end RBs every year though and I love it.
  19. No one is going to say for sure who it was out of respect for the kid. As torn as Sandidge was it wouldn’t surprise me but I honestly don’t know. I haven’t seen much talk about it really. As far as the 26 goes, I don’t think we had much wiggle room. Maybe could have taken one more but I’m not sure. Wyatt counting in his original spot would put us at 25 for this year I think. We also signed 26 last year with a few guys enrolling early, which I think 2 were counted back to the class of 23 we signed in 2016. We had either 1 or 2 spots to back count with Wyatt accounting for 1.
  20. From Dash regarding us taking 26...
  21. UGA is gonna have to pony up the cash to keep Kirby. That’s a no brainer for Bama to pursue after Saban retires. I will say I don’t think Kirby would leave UGA for Bama just for more money, but I think UGA has to pay that man and his assistants what they’re worth or Bama will. From what I understand the UGA athletic department and big boosters are on board with paying this staff whatever is necessary. That’s why I didn’t include him lol
  22. Yeah I don’t see that happening at all, but I can see KoG’s reasoning behind it. Richt would be a caretaker until the next big hire. He is a very good coach, I really think he gets crapped on too much by a lot of UGA fans... think he’s gonna build something big in Miami. But he’s just not a Bama type of personality to begin with. Richt wants to win the rings but it’s not about the rings. That’s just not the Bama mindset. I think it would be good for them to go after a James Franklin or Tom Herman. Both good recruiters, younger guys, successful as head coaches, etc. Herman may be too weird for Bama though.
  23. Yeah that’s why I commented on him having a reason to throw the hat. I thought it was great. Unnecessary and not very classy, but a great announcement. What’s even more absurd is they rationalize the wishing of career ending injuries by saying it’s just something they say in the heat of being mad. Well... the energy you put out comes back around to you. They’ve been this way forever and their program has become a dumpster fire. Now they have a coach who shows his *** when things don’t go his way, too. There are some great UT fans but way too many are very trashy fans that see no problem in cheering for injuries or being turds to any rival fan just because they support a team they don’t like. Every big fanbase has its share of morons though.
  24. As much as I loved that beat down, I can’t wait for this game to be relevant again. It’s so much sweeter to keep them from winning the division and playing for more. As much as that 2012 loss to Bama stung, it was still sweet that our win over UF kept them out. And then they lost to Louisville in the Sugar Bowl.
