Georgia makes changes to defense after first spring scrimmage

I sure am glad to see the progress being made at OLB and ILB. Quickness is more to be desired than size at those positions.

Kentucky drubs South Carolina, now 25-0

KY sure has the horses -- on the court and at the tracks.

Loss of control: Bulldogs stumble, beat by Auburn

It happens, although I thought it is uncharacteristic for this team to blow a nine point lead in the final minutes and I am not sure that giving Djurisic the last shot was the best option but perhaps there was no one else. I do hope that they stomp USC after the way their fans acted in Columbia.

'Athletic, dynamic' Smith reveals he will play for Georgia

If this young man wants to come to UGA then he should execute his LOI and send it in.

Gaines, Georgia beat Texas A&M 62-53

I just loved that shooting from the line in the last thirty seconds or so. A real dig down deep performance by starters, bench and ,of course, CMF who lost his voice --- but not his brains.

Loran Smith: Frazier a small southpaw guard with huge game

The recruiting of J.J. indicates the true worth of CMF. J.J. was not on anyone's radar but CMR's superior coaching talent spotted his talent and was able to coach him up to his full potential. The coaches at KY or DUKE get all the raw talent they want but CMR must first spot over-looked players like J.J. and then by excellent coaching develop the players. I personally would not trade CMF for any coach in the SEC -- uh -- how about the country.
New recruits had best take a look at UGA.

Georgia's hard work on recruiting trail pays off with D-line haul

I disagree with Coach Tracy's remark," ... in November it is won in the trenches." It is not November, it is September through January that it is won in the trenches (OL and DL). Championship teams always start with the down linemen and winning the line of scrimmage; the rest is a piece of cake.

Bulldogs hold off Tennessee as Fox wins 100th game

UGA pulled it out inspite of a bad call in the last 10 seconds and some really sloppy play (turnovers) all game long, but I am happy for CMF and the team as they showed heart at the end. Let's hope that they play together because every team will copy TN's game plan.

Ukraine's conflict a complicated puzzle

This is just like 1938. There is just no such thing as a good agreement with a bad (Putin) person. If I might paraphrase the late Winston Churchill -- At Munich we had a choice between war and dishonor. We chose dishonor and we will have war. Put another way, what we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.

Bulldogs look to get back on 'winning side' versus Tennessee

Injuries happen in any competition. One cannot justify poor execution by playing "Oh! What if ..." The team effort-- tactics, effort, etc -- must address the new situation. The plain fact is that for UGA to be successful there must be five gritty --gutsy -- men on the court, and just as important a gritty -- gutsy bench ready to step in and step up. It takes everybody. This team is as stong as the weakest link and that means everyone must be "pure steel".

UGA Notebook: Georgia anchors its line with some big NSD gets

We have got some big OL and I hope that they are quick. Folks need to remember that every 8 or so lbs of weight is a gallon of milk hanging around one's neck. When chasing some elusive QB or trying to block a quick LB or DB it can get mighty tiresome --- soon.

UGA's hits and misses in pursuit of elite o-line recruiting haul

One can never have enough down OL DL players because of the unknown injury factors. If we win the line of scrimmage we have the opportunity to go all the way.

Georgia aims to end Kentucky's bid for perfect season

The question is: Can UGA defeat KY in Lexington? The answer is: YES, of course. But it will take a team effort like we saw against FL. CMF doesn't have seven or eight five star players but what we do have is a gutsy team that, if they play hard together and never quit, can beat anybody. It takes five men on the court plus the entire bench. Everybody must do their part.

Georgia's win streak ends in ugly fashion at South Carolina

The disapointment was the way the bench failed to step up. Thornton is big but there are five men on the court. And FIVE means five -- not four or three.
Everybody must do their part. Marcus being out is not the reason for the loss;
it was the failure to respond.

Another injury blow to Bulldogs: Thornton out with concussion

Thornton has provided mature leadership but injurues are just part of competition. The unsung heros this season have been the bench who have stepped up. I don't often disagree with CMF but "disjointed" is not necessarily a bad thing because it is not easy to analyze or to coach a solution by the opposition. If this team is "disjointed" I sure want to see it the rest of the season. Don't over-coach CMF.

Five and counting... Bulldogs win fifth straight with 70-62 win over Vandy

That is true Bulldog grit in the last few minutes. I did not see "cute" myself but then I was not at court side. It was just good solid team play.

SEC Player of the Week Frazier 'changes the game' for UGA

That is what I just love about CMF; Frazier was not even on anybody's radar and that is why I say nobody -- and I mean nobody -- gets as much out of the material he has than CMF. To me that is a great coach. He knows how to really coach up a player's potential. All of you new recruits out there take notice!!!

Frazier scores 37 in Georgia's 72-66 win at Mississippi State

I wish I could have seen the game. It looks as if Frazier was red hot although the team playing so well together open up opportunities. Look out KY the Dawgs are coming with their team "A" game on.

VIDEO: Fox - No 'big issues' holding up contract, but may not sign until after season

I sure hope that CMF stays for a long time at UGA so that some continuity in our basketball program. It just takes time plus growing success to develop a winning program. The young coach at Butler is a good example of someone starting off below the radar and developing a program that goes to the final 4.

Band-aided Bulldogs winning despite mounting injuries

Sometimes injuries can bring together the team. And this plays to CMF's strong suit in that his superior coaching ability can develop players from off the back-up bench. This means that even walk-ons get looked at for development and that encourages them to practice hard. Good feeds upon itself.

Four-star WR recruit de-commits from UGA

If he is not happy and fully committed then it is best that he looks somewhere else. In my view a man must really deep down want to come to UGA.

Georgia wins over Ole Miss, 69-64

It is not how one starts the game --- it is how one finishes the game. Mann stepped up when he had to and once again it was a whole team effort and win over a very good team. That makes it three good wins in a row. I did not see a single coaching or court management mistake. A good game by everybody but I do agree that several team members seem to sorta run out of gas and a short rest is due.

Bulldogs bite Gators, snap rival's lengthy SEC streak

Oh! How sweet it is !! I knew it --- I just knew the way they were playing in the two losses that they were coming together -- playing together -- playing as an unselfish team with great senior leadership that they were going to win over Vandy and FL. I am so happy for the team because they won as a team on the court and on the bench as well because it takes everybody pulling an oar and stepping up. And what about CMF? If there is a better coach in the SEC I want to see him. Wonderful coaching effort and flawless court managment. If UGA plays the way they played Saturday, they can beat anybody --- I mean KY or Duke or anybody.

Injury-depleted Dogs tasked with stopping losing streak at Vandy

Injury and adversity are part of any sport and any team. The bench simply must step up. And CMF will challenge them to be unselfish and always play as a team.

LSU beats Georgia 87-84 in double overtime

We are so close we can taste it. OK so there were some mistakes but every game by everybody is full of mistakes. I thought it was a wonderful effort and I am so happy and pleased. I wish they had won but --- darn it --- we are on the up. As long as they keep playing together HARD I am happy at their progress.
CMF is just the best.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
