  1. Nice. I think I still have my Scorpions pin that I bought at Turtles in the 80’s.
  2. From Sentell: Something for you good folks to think about and consider tonight.....Georgia continues to recruit Auburn RB commit Tank Bigsby. Hard. Wouldn’t surprise me to see him take a visit. Maybe even this weekend for ☘️ in Athens. Could happen. Might not. But it could.
  3. Per 247: Ja’Qurious Conley, who is a current UNC commit, has a committable offer from UGA. Might be hard to flip him, since he was wanting an offer before summer was over and before he decided on a school. Rusty also said that UGA is recruiting Jimmy Calloway, who is a current Tennessee wr commit. He doesn't have an offer from UGA currently, but he is a 5-11, 175 pound 10.7 100m guy. Rusty expects his stock to rise.
  4. DJ Daniel will be starting if Campbell can't go. I like Stevenson a lot. I thought for sure he would be a safety, but he has looked really good at cb.
  5. Apparently it's a foot injury.
  6. Sounds like we will have to wait at least another day to see if Campbell is a go this weekend.
  7. Per Dawgnation, others expected to be in Athens this weekend: Ratledge Jalen Carter
  8. And D Rob and Simmons. Could use D Rob's speed and Simmons blocking.
  9. From 247: Dominick Blaylock's performance against Arkansas State may have caught some by surprise but it didn't really stun anyone who saw the kid practice last week. One source told me that Blaylock turned it up a notch or two and things have clicked regarding his understanding of the offense. There are still some hurdles for him to clear in regards to becoming a more physical blocker and doing the little things correctly, but when it comes to making sight adjustments to his routes and setting up defenders for his breaks, he is getting better by the day and was already advanced for a youngster. It's about this time of year every year when I check with my contacts about guys who are impressing on the scout team and I had multiple people bring up Makiya Tongue on Sunday. He's not out there burning the defense deep or wowing with big plays, but those who've gotten a look at him love how he catches everything throw his way. They also think he's probably one of the Bulldogs' most physical wideouts and even at 6-foot-2 215 pounds, he plays bigger than he is. It wouldn't shock me at all if he started making some strides later on in the year and forced his way onto the field but with all things considered, him taking a redshirt is my expectation.
  10. A few items from 247: - Theo Johnson and Darnell Washington will both be getting to town on Friday. - No Zach Evans this weekend. He has to get his high school issue taken care of, but is still in constant communication with the UGA staff. - Made some calls on some players that are looking to redshirt that are doing good as well. They are both likely redshirt and that is not a surprise, but I am told that Zion Logue and Tymon Mitchell are both doing well and have gotten better when the pads came on. That also played a role in a player in the 2020 class no longer being committed to Georgia on the defensive line. K Milton will be in town this weekend and has been working on recruiting others. Z Walker will be in town this weekend, but though Rusty thinks he will be in this class, he also expects him to take some visits before making a decision. Ringo is trying to make it to Athens this weekend, but if he does, it will not be his official. Noah Sewell should be in Athens on Saturday by noon.
  11. Whoa. That is huge!
  12. And now a rape accusation.
  13. Me too. Looks like we would turn our attention to Chaney and Lloyd. I would hope Gibbs would be in the conversation too.
  14. Gotta love his attitude. This was from DN this morning: ATHENS — Nate McBride remains something of a Georgia football fan favorite entering his junior season, still fighting to earn playing time on defense while embracing his role on special teams. McBride was a bonafide blue-chip prospect in the 2017 class with offers from Alabama, Auburn and Clemson, and some felt a sure-fire impact player. But McBride, a 6-foot-2, 223-pounder from “The Sweet Onion City” of Vidalia, made it clear no one need be shedding tears for him. “We’re number 3 in the country, so there’s a lot of good players everywhere you look,” McBride said, explaining the level of competition at inside linebacker. “I’m blessed, and just like my dad told me, it’s not when you want to get out there, it’s when God wants to get out there. That’s the main thing, that’s what I’ve got to keep in my head. “Right now, special teams is my main role and that’s what I’m going to do with my ability.” McBride is bought in, 100 percent, and that was obvious in how he talked about Coach Kirby Smart and his teammates during his media interview on Monday. “The little things are really what (Smart) harps on the most, (that) you forget the little things and that adds up to the big things,” McBride said. “Picking up that blitz that Zamir (White) did, and George (Pickens) blocking on the edge. Yeah, he made that great catch, that was crazy, but blocking on the edge is what helps the team goals.” And that is what McBride is determined to do himself, even while his fans clamor for him to get more opportunities in the linebacking corps. “I enjoy special teams because it helps me get on the field,” said McBride, a former state champion in the 100 and 200 meters. “Everybody notices the quarterbacks and DBs, but special teams can get you to the pros by itself. You see Jayson Stanley, he didn’t get many snaps on offense, but he was all the way on special teams and he had a great preseason with the (Atlanta) Falcons.” McBride is on the kickoff and punt return units for the Bulldogs, but he said his role on punt return varies each week. As for playing behind starting inside linebackers Monty Rice and Tae Crowder, and second team players Nakobe Dean and Quay Walker, McBride just digs in and does his best every day. “We’ve got some talent, I’ll tell you that, and each year it’s going to get better and better,” McBride said. “You see the freshman, you’ve got Nolan Smith, you’ve got George (Pickens) you’ve got Nakobe (Dean), it’s unbelievable, the talent we get each year. “Then the sophomore Quay Walker has stepped up a lot, and I’m happy for him, he’s worked like everyone else,” McBride said. “I’m at Georgia. I know there’s going to be competition, and our recruiting class (2017) started the movement, I guess you could say. You just have to come out every week and do your best.” No doubt, and it’s players like McBride that help keep teammates locked in for opponents like Murray State and this week’s foe, Arkansas State (TV: ESPN2, noon). “You’ve got to approach it like they were national champions last year, because you never know each week if you slip up, that team could be good enough to upset you,” McBride said. “We pride ourself on working each week as if we were playing in the national championship.” McBride might not yet be the impact player some envisioned, but his team attitude and special teams prowess is making the kind of impact championship are built around.
