Interesting that Meyer "hinted" at a possible suspension for Moss the Tuesday AFTER the South Carolina game. Moss ended up missing the game between South Carolina and FSU...Western Carolina.....for smoking MJ. Guess they only test for that on cupcake week.
Wonder what advice Jake got making his decision. I don't think anyone saw 1st round. So he either knew something no one else did or he'd already shown his full potential at UGA. I would've thought with the new OC coming in, Fromm would've loved a shot to pull a "Burrow" and increase his stock. Although next year it's Lawrence and Fields coming out early....Fromm strikes me a Brees-esque type QB. Hopefully it turns out ok and he gets put in a good situation to develop.
My wife, a diehard Gator fan since birth, says she married me for my SEC Championship tickets....and it definitely wasn't a joke :-))
Come on down Zachary Evans.....Join the Bulldog Nation!!!
Kirby prides himself on getting academic players and its a point of emphasis at UGA. One player sitting (Cleveland) for grades isn't unheard of. As to what's going on behind the scenes with Herrien, JR Reed, Swift, Clark et al seems something is rotten... Evans, Washington, Jones and Ringo signing will help tremendously..Burch would be over the top ;-)) Fromm stays IMO...
Ronnie "AK-47" Wilson ring any bells?
@ PrairieDawgin - Hudson entered the transfer portal.... Something stinks here...Herrien sitting out? Swift banged up and may not even play...that leaves Cook (not a between the tackles runner), Zeus & McIntosh. No reason why Herrien doesn't travel and play. Blaylock & Cager out. Pickens needs a very big day if he can stay in the game long enough. I'm sure Baylor will knows he is a hot-head and will try to pull his chain early. LT Thomas & RT Wilson sitting out. Cleveland not academically eligible. UGA might not score 14 pts.
You mean like "Tua wasn't 100%..." kind of excuses?
Maybe a better question would be, what would have the UGA offense looked like with Nauta and a few of the underclassmen stay that went pro early and didn't get drafted? JJ Holloman loss bigger than realized? The 2017 team was an aberration with Michel/Chubb coming back for their Sr seasons and a better than avg defense. It's a rare thing where the Offense and Defense have impact players stay and all the pieces fall into place. Does Fromm stay and have a "Burrow-type" year next year and improve his draft position dramatically? Next years QB class has Lawrence, Fields possibly Eason if he doesn't go pro this year. Where does Fromm fall out next year?
That 2018 LSU game was over as soon as Kirby ran the fake FG early in the game. Kirbys in-game adjustments and situational football is horrible. Until that gets fixed it doesn't matter who's the QB. Just my $.02
OK, #8...Hot Rod goes from walk-on, to scholarship, to SEC Academic POY, to Groza award winner for best College kicker......I'm pretty sure Caleb Sturgis was a Gator for at least 20 years.....
@ gatoroutwest - So how's Brenton Cox working out at Florida. One of those "Dawg 5-stars" to transfer? Must not be too terrible if the gators want him. Also, UGA had a 15-5 record vs Florida in the 70/80's. As like most Gator fans of a certain age I speak to, they think UF football started in 1990 when Spurrier got there. If you're going to use history, try using all of it, not just the part that supports your side of the story. You sound like MSNBC & CNN....
Of course if UGA beats LSU and they both go to CFP, that means most likely Bama to Sugar and UF to Orange. Sooooo Gator fans should be Dawg fans on Dec 7th.....just sayin'
If UGA beats LSU, they certainly deserve to be in the CFP this year. Are they the 4th "best" team in the country right now, I don't think so, but it is what it is at this point with the process we currently have in place. I hear time and time again about Bama fans and their sense of CFP entitlement. Make no mistake, Bama is on an historic run right now. But how many Bama fans remember the Mike Shula years? Mike "lap dance" Price? Saban lost to UL-Monroe at HOME in 2007. UGA played Arky in the 2005 SECCG because Bama was on probation....I wish some of the Bama Finebaum callers would take a chill pill and realize Bama hasn't ALWAYS been the machine they are currently. One day Saban will retire and things will even out again. Bama has already won the NC twice without winning their division (2011, 2017). I know Bama fans dont want to hear this...the world will spin around and the sun will still come up if Bama doesn't make the CFP every year.
Bama has already won two NC's without winning their division, once in the BCS (2011), once in the CFP (2017). I have a hard time believing the CFP committee will include Bama without a division or conference title again this year. If OU wins the Big 12, they would be hard to leave out of the CFP IMHO. #1 LSU, #2 tOSU, #3 Clemson #4 OU. If UGA beats LSU, then #1 tOSU, #2 Clemson, #3 UGA and #4 OU. I just think setting the precedent of losing a Conference championship game and still making the CFP is not something they would want to start. Do I believe in that particular scenario that LSU is still a better team than OU, yes, but conference championships "should" matter. UGA didn't get into the CFP last year b/c of the LSU loss, not the loss in the SECCG, no matter how hard Kirby lobbied after the game. All this assumes Baylor doesn't beat OU or Minn/Wisc beating tOSU. The potential Bama/OU match up has lost some of its luster without Tua playing. tOSU vs UGA would be pretty wild too.

@ bronco2 - agree 100%. Does anyone else feel like we're seeing the same movie over and over? UGA gets a lead and stops doing what got them there? Everyone in the stadium knows UGA is going to go conservative and run the ball. That's the issue...UGA cant run the ball when the other team KNOWS they are going to run the ball. This is Richt 2.0 all over again. UGA will not, can not put their foot on an opponents throat and keep them down!!! My 1st UGA game was in 1982. I've been/am just as loyal a Dawg fan as there is. But this tired game plan can not continue if UGA wants to get to the promised land. Kirby "in game" adjustments are horrible. Why did the Defense go zone? Why not keep doing what has been working all game? Can Fromm throw slants like Nix? Does running Cook (170lbs) up the middle make sense? We happened to the Toss Sweep?
All these thoughts and plans are moot if Kirby doesn't start playing to win instead of NOT to lose. Play to UGA's strengths, exploit the opponents weakness and kick them in the arse until their nose bleeds...simple play calling won't fix that.
It's as if UGa NEEDS to lose mid-season to get motivated the rest of the way....
