UGA summer focus on getting leaner: ‘We’re going to have to trim them all down’

I am so happy -- Glory, glory to old Georgia. At long last to those who have read my postings for the last unpteen years we have some people coaching who really understand the game. It is a matter of physics -- Newton's Laws of Motion; a lineman may be big and he may be strong but he "ain't quick".
Coaches Tracy and Jeremy seem to understand that. It is one of the big problems now days that our coaches are not particularly well educated. CMR I would bet has never been within rifle shot of a physics classroom in HS or at UM.

Bulldogs sign two frontcourt players

CMF is coming off his best coaching effort and these new recruits should be a big boost to next year. I just hope that they realize that they are not the greatest thing since sliced bread and will follow the example of this past season's wonderful team togetherness and unselfish team play.

Offensive line starters shuffled again for G-Day

One cannot play quick tempo the entire game. Sometimes the team needs to take time off the clock; or give the team a breathing spell.

Defense draws plenty of flags

In the SEC penalities will just kill the team. Real champions never need to "hotdog". An athlete must always be in control and show his class.

Former Jefferson standout Redd finds himself starting with UGA’s first-team defense

I did not see the scrimmage but from what I read above it sure seem that Lucas is a winner to me.

Pruitt shows little patience for secondary mistakes

I can see our next head coach in CJP. This man knows how to coach and he sure proved himself at FSU; and from what I have just read above he is showing his talent in Athens. I bet ol' Jimbo is having palpitations over his loss to UGA.

Left side, strong side: Theus back at natural position

John should do well at left tackle and I am glad that Mason feels confortable.
I do wish that John would get a haircut. Sometimes image is important.

Georgia men’s basketball adds two recruits

I trust trucking's judgment; and I sure hope that they can follow the lead of this year's team by being unselfish and playing together. Anyone who saw yesterday's whupping of the Gators saw that UC got performance from everyone from A to Z .

UGA swim coach Bauerle suspended from coaching duties as NCAA levies allegations

I hope that everyone will remember that in this country a person is presumed to be innocent until the allegations are proved to the exclusion of a reasonable doubt. It is a shame that Coach Bauerle is caught up in this but when coaches are under such pressure to "win" at any cost to keep their jobs; it is understandable.

Bulldogs taking special (teams) care

Having two special teams co-coaches violates the basic coaching principle of "unity of command". Now there are two possibilities: CMR may just be a blockheaded kraut from south Florida who is stubborn or just can't admit that there are Georgia people out there who know as much or more than he does about coaching successful teams, or. he just does not understand the concept. Of course, some people never seem to learn from their mistakes and they make the same errors of judgment over and over again. Like RedPantsDawg, my reading Lilly's comments that ,"not a whole heck of alot." will change give be a very bad case of cold sweats. Our special teams performance has been a train wreck and everyone knows it --- or at least should know it.

Updated: Expectations higher for Fox after getting contract extension

This was CMF's best coaching effort; and I certainly applaud and support the ADM's decision on the contract extention. Having said that, however, we just must work our way out of the pack. I know that we have as much to offer as Clemson or FSU and I am not adverse to going to the NIT a few time to get our legs under us. This year's team showed that they can and will play together and be unselfish. I think that our realistic goal should be to be in the SEC final and to win the NIT.

Dogs take to the drawing board: UGA targets recruits with unique portraits

Quick hits: Tight-end depth thinning for Bulldogs

I love tight ends! They are big tackles with great hands and are like a run away freight train going down the field.

Georgia’s rising offensive linemen come from lacrosse, tennis backgrounds

I am really pleased that the ABH is giving some press coverage to our OL and DL. The men in the trenches don't get near the attention that the sexy backs and receivers do; and yet, they are the backbone of any championship team. I know that Coach Friend is going to have a great year.

More shuffling comes at offensive line

I am sure am happy over the moving around in the OL as the team's success this fall depends greatly on the men in the trenches; it is imperative to have the correct personnel in the proper position. If the OL and the down DL don't play; the Dogs don't win. Period!

A look at UGA’s O-line depth

woebegong hits very good points and inconstant performance has been the problem of CMR era. I still say that our OL will not be up to SEC standards until Coach Bobo takes a more active and hands on approach to those OL
down linemen .

Updated: Georgia ‘just not dialed in’ in season-ending loss to Louisiana Tech

Sometimes a team is just not up to it. To their credit this team did not quit and they closed to single digits and made a game of it. I still say this is far and away the best coaching effort of CMF. They showed courage and true grit in the second half. A weak character team would have just given up. I just love the heart that this team and coaching staff have shown. It has been a very good season -- not a great season and I thank CMF and the whole team for their effort. The recruiting should be better because of this team's character. The DOGS didn't quit on the fans and the fans won't quit on the team. I will take character and heart over pure physical talent everytime.

Video: Mark Fox, Charles Mann, Marcus Thornton after NIT win vs. Vermont

There is just no quit in this team. OK so there were too many turn-overs; they showed good old Georgia heart and they kept playing hard as a team; it was not a one mann show ( excuse the pun ).

Updated: Bulldogs Mann up in NIT win over Catamounts

Oh man!! How I love this team’s true grit; and they never showed it better than in the second half, when after leading the whole game, VT took the lead and the Dogs fell behind in almost double digits. They didn’t lose their cool. They didn’t lose their poise and by playing together, they pulled it out and showed the world their pedigree. How about that foul shooting ?!! In my opinion this is without any doubt the best team of CMF’s era at UGA. When one considers the prospects we had last November, a tie with KY for second in the SEC, a NIT bid, and a 20 win season is mighty sweet and they aren’t done yet. Work on turn-overs .

Five things about the Georgia-Vermont NIT matchup

Finishing in a tie for 2nd with KY in the SEC and now in the NIT to start with VT. I for one just love the grit of this team and I think it is CMF's best coaching season. As long as they just keep playing hard defense and staying together I will be happy.

4 UGA football players arrested, charged with theft by deception

It seems that we have been recruiting athletes just on their physical potential but not enough attention as to their character. When a recruit has been selected to attend UGA a very large investment has been made before the athlete attends the first practice. Perhaps we should be looking into their background in much more detail before offering scholarships. I would take heart, character and integrity over pure physical assets ever time. We don't need a bunch of "bums".

Georgia has little trouble beating Mississippi State

Always happy for the team's success but I do agree that the team appeared sluggish early on. I do wish that CMF would try a little experiment. Our HS coach always said that foul shooting was strickly between the ears. It seems to me that they are not putting enough arch on the ball. The ball must go up and down otherwise there is a tendancy to hit the front rim or the back. he had a little drill that was done every practice. He had the player go into the key circle and tur their back to the basket. They then were allowed to take one bounce and then do a quick turn-around jumper. For umpteen years the team was the best free throw shooters in our league.

Williams prepares for final home game as Georgia takes on Mississippi State

If the team plays within themselves as hard as they can, the best that they can, then all true Bulldogs will be proud of the coach and staff and all of the men on the court. No matter the score thank you all, for a really sweet season.

Clarke’s 23 lift Arkansas past Georgia, 87-75

All that I have ever ask is that the team play as hard as they can; the best that they can. If they never quit on us, we will never quit on them. And PLEASE no more distractions.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
