Mon, 10 Oct 2016 17:32:27 +0000Georgia and South Carolina were able to get their game in this weekend, but LSU and Florida still have business to attend to. While it’s still a possibility that the game won’t be played at all, SEC commissioner Greg Sankey maintains that “it’s important to play that game.” The sticking point of course is finding […]
Thu, 06 Oct 2016 16:33:04 +0000While the running game was the big beneficiary of Georgia's adjustments on offense against Tennessee, one other consequence was the role of the tight ends. The wider formations meant a lot less of the three-TE sets favored when Georgia attempted to establish a power running game earlier in the year.
Thu, 06 Oct 2016 16:25:00 +0000We got the good news on Monday that Nick Chubb was not expected to be limited at practice this week and should be available for the next game. There's been nothing to suggest a setback after three days of practice, so we should expect to see much more of #27 if and when the next game is played.
Tue, 04 Oct 2016 04:21:48 +0000There seems to be either blazing heat or a weather delay (or both!) when Georgia plays at South Carolina, and fans will want to keep an eye on the forecast again this year. Hurricane Matthew is currently moving north through the Caribbean bringing catastrophic conditions to Hispaniola. The forecast for Matthew changed significantly on Monday with a pronounced westward shift in the anticipated track. Rather than curving out to sea like most Atlantic hurricanes, Matthew is now forecast to turn back to the northwest through the Bahamas and be in a position to impact the entire southeast coast late this week. The storm is forecast to be centered just off Jacksonville on Friday evening and just off Wilmington by Saturday evening.
Tue, 04 Oct 2016 03:38:42 +0000Had the game ended on Georgia's final possession, we'd be talking a lot more about Smart's decision to use two rather than three of his timeouts on defense following Eason's interception. The CBS crew pounced on the decision, and - to put it mildly - it was met with some disagreement in the stands too.
Tue, 04 Oct 2016 03:21:21 +0000For a while it seemed as if Georgia was going to get all the breaks. Tennessee had lost only one fumble all season, but the Dawgs were able to pounce both times the Vols put the ball on the ground in the first half. Even better, Jacob Eason was present enough to dive on Sony Michel's fumble at the other end, and what could have been a tight 10-7 game turned into a promising 17-0 Georgia lead. But as Tennessee overcame the drops against Florida, they were able to begin finishing drives and even came up with a pivotal turnover of their own. The turning point of the game was Tennessee's drive at the end of the first half. The Vols then got a couple of breaks of their own as a pair of reviews led to a Georgia substitution penalty and then failed to overturn a Dobbs touchdown scramble. Tennessee was able to book-end halftime with a pair of scores, and that 17-0 edge had evaporated.
Fri, 23 Sep 2016 23:07:40 +0000With due respect to Carolina, Missouri, and the rivalry games at the end of the season, most of us circled these upcoming two games as the biggest challenges on Georgia’s schedule. It’s shaping up that way: the Vols are about as advertised, and though Ole Miss has dropped two games to top 10 opponents, they’ve […]
Wed, 21 Sep 2016 03:27:45 +0000If the season opener showed us that Jacob Eason could play at this level, the Missouri game showed us that Eason could put Georgia's offense on his shoulders and win when an opponent's game plan took everything else away. After two games in which Georgia ran far more than it passed, Eason attempted an incredible 55 passes, threw for 308 yards, and accounted for three passing touchdowns. There's no question who should be Georgia's quarterback going forward.
Tue, 13 Sep 2016 11:02:01 +0000Kirby Smart’s first game at Sanford Stadium turned out to be a lot like Mark Richt’s last. In Novemeber the Dawgs needed a second-half turnover to come from behind and force overtime against Georgia Southern. On Saturday the Dawgs again faced a second-half deficit, and a timely turnover provided the margin of victory as Georgia […]
Fri, 09 Sep 2016 11:15:14 +0000Marc Weiszer reported Thursday night that freshman quarterback Jacob Eason has earned his first start and will be under center for the Dawgs on Saturday against Nicholls State. Several other outlets later ran similar stories. There has been no official announcement yet. Eason, sharing time with starter Greyson Lambert, played a significant number of snaps […]
Fri, 09 Sep 2016 11:00:24 +0000This is very cool, especially if you’re a former band geek. SEC Network, an ESPN network with 24/7 Southeastern Conference coverage, is committed to providing the sights and sounds of the halftime band performances live during each of the network’s football games this season. Coverage of the marching bands will be offered as a second-screen […]
Fri, 09 Sep 2016 10:00:09 +0000Early polls are meaningless and probably shouldn’t even be released until week 8 or so – unless you wind up in the top 10 after week one. Not a one of the early 2015 Heisman favorites cracked the top 5 in final voting, but it’s always nice to get some deserved recognition for Nick Chubb […]
Wed, 07 Sep 2016 04:22:52 +0000I had anticipated Georgia’s opener since it was announced. I dreaded it too in a way – I was not looking forward to cheering against the team I grew up supporting. It was tough sitting with my dejected family as Georgia’s comeback turned into victory. In the end I was happy with the outcome but […]
Thu, 01 Sep 2016 11:00:13 +0000Chubb comin’. Part of me still can’t believe that he’s back. May he have the kind of season he deserves. Chubb and Michel on the field together. September 2015 offered a tease of a very effective combination. Michel proved he could more than handle the tailback position after Chubb’s injury, but Chubb in the lineup […]
Mon, 29 Aug 2016 11:00:40 +0000There’s a weather forecasting method called climatology. It uses averages over time as a starting point to forecast the weather during normal weather patterns. On a typical July day in Georgia, climatology might tell you to expect temperatures in the 90s with a stray thunderstorm possible. Individual days can be hotter or cooler, drier or […]
