I agree, he is worth a shot and there is more to be gained than lost IMO. If it does not work out then cut him or send him to the portal but at least you are providing a second chance for the kid. There is a balance here to do what is best for the kid and the program. Do not overthink talent like this, but keep an eye on him. If he continues to be a cancer then see ya later.
I do not see any harm in taking a shot on such a talent. Give him a chance to right his wrongs. If he does not, then he can be cut or sent to the transfer. Whatever is good for the kid and the program. There is a lot more to be gained rather than lost IMO.
I also think Pierce will have a break out year if he can stay healthy. It is hard because he is so violent at the point of contact. I love his tenacity but it takes its toll, unless you are a beast like Scarlett was.
Copeland will have a breakout year. He will have the second most receptions (behind Pitts) and just as many TD's as Pitts. Grimes will be good and a great deep threat. Copeland is a physical mismatch and has incredible hands. I also hope Carter and Burney have big years. The question mark remains safety play. Someone has to step up.
Well said Long Time. I have been in every back and forth with some UGA fans on this site over records, championships, recruiting, coaching etc. Through those conversations, both sides make relevant points. However, one thing I will never understand is the infatuation that a lot of UGA fans have with our program. Your original argument does make some sense of that. I still do not get it though. Hanging out on the UGA board would be the equivalent to wanting to go hangout at my in-laws house. Some of these UGA posters are like a weird cult or something. Some small part me wishes that all their far fetched dreams would come true and they would finally win a title...but I know it would solve nothing. They would still be hear, hanging around like the last guy at the bar that does not know when to call it quits and has no where else to go. I can not believe I am saying this but they have officially gone from my most hated rivalry to the most pitied fan base. Sad...but the obsession continues.
I predict Copeland will become our primary target next year at the wideout position. Gonna have a breakout year. He is a big body, is athletic and has great hands.
This is one of the best covers I have seen! Awesome! Congrats to LSU, Burreaux, Ogeron and all the LSU faithful. Well deserved.
I agree 100%. I think Aranda earned his paycheck last night. All the talk is always about Venables but Aranda dialing different pressures was key to Lawrence's "off night," and an LSU Natty.
LSU often and early. It is gonna be ugly. The LSU offense may very well be the best in College Football History and they will show it tonight. Also a bold prediction that Aranda out-coaches Venables tonight. The LSU defense will hold Clemson under 14 points.
Also, no one is talking about this but I hope this move (Fromm) does not make Emory Jones get happy feet. With Richardson coming in and Trask taking the reigns, I feel like he could make the jump if UGA offered. I believe he is from UGA and was recruited by Kirby? He could be dynamic as well. That would be the ultimate revenge to him not playing at UF. Starting for UGA next year. I hope we do not have another Cam Newton scenario on our hands. I hope he stays patient. So hard for dynamic players today. I do not blame them.
Man if Gatewood would have held off for little bit instead of jumping to KY he would have been a good get for you all. If he turns out, KY will not be an easy win in the East anymore. He is a game changer like Fields.
You guys win the internet today for these comments.
Copeland is going to have a breakout year. He is a beast.
Davis and Pierce are both explosive backs and could start for many SEC programs. There are several factors to consider though. 1. Can Pierce stay healthy as an every down back. He is violent at the point of contact (Which I love) and that can cause problems for a smaller back in the SEC. 2. Can Davis hold onto the ball 3. Most importantly can we adjust our blocking scheme for the types of backs that we have. If you can not get a push off the line, you need consider more stretch and zone schemes.
They are all heavy hitters (our safety rotation) but man they cost us 2 games this year with their inability to cover. Blown coverage's everywhere this year, and Davis was no exception. He needs another year to fine tune his football knowledge. He is fast and violent but he needs to work on his communication in coverage. He is not alone though.
So many blown coverages by everyone but our corners. On a positive note Kimbrell and Elam had great games as Freshmen. Future is bright at corner but someone is gonna have to step up at safety and nickel. It has been our Achilles all year.
It wasn’t Grantham. It was our poor safety and secondary play. Our corners did well but our safeties continue to be a handicap for us. They play selfish football trying to make big hits while blowing coverage every other play. Needs to change if we are gonna compete for the SEC.
This is the kind of comment that makes your fan base look ignorant and obsessed at best. More concerned with the events of our offseason than your own. Thanks for the choice to “take or leave,” your ignorance. We will choose the latter. The infatuation continues...
Maryland has some very wealthy boosters. Things are easier to keep quiet when you live close by.
This guy cannot be sincere. If he is, then he is the saddest thing I have ever seen. Then again, even if he does it as a joke, it is still sad.
Also, safety Tre'Vez Johnson just got moved to a 4 star from a 3. Clemson tried to swoop in late but to no avail.
I ain’t mad at him. A&M is a good program. Good luck to this young man. I like when they have a bit of fun with the signings. It is after all, just a game. Go Gators!
I believe Pierce is gonna be a great back if we can get our act together on the line. He is compact, fast and Is viscous at the point of contact. Davis is also a homerun hitter if he can hold onto the ball.
73' you are prob right, but they are beating USC with Fields at the helm, guaranteed, which still puts them in the playoff as a one loss (to LSU) in the SEC champ. It is also very realistic to say that Trask's lack of maneuverability makes us less lethal as an offense. I do agree that changes need to be made on the o-line and a better running scheme devised. Part of that could be Jones at the helm running stretch reads and RPO's that Trask is not going to run. We also agree that the best QB should win the job. I just do not think you can give Trask the nod simply because he had a good season. Let them compete and do not be afraid to start Jones. Trask will be there if called upon, just like he was with Franks being injured. Those receivers sticking around are a very good core but pale in comparison to the route runners that we had this year. I think we need some more balance on the offensive end to win champs. Jones gives us that option and also can make plays with his legs when the play breaks down. But again, I am all for "May the best man win." Just an opinion.
No one is being disloyal or is not appreciative. That has no relevance in this conversation at all. Dan Mullen is getting paid a lot of money to win championships. The question becomes is Trask the QB to do that? IMO I do not think so. Just because I hold that opinion does not make me disloyal, it makes me a true fan that wants to win championships. His offensive scheme calls for a dynamic running QB. It all comes down to decision making with the ball. If Jones can do that then he is the guy. No disrespect to Trask at all. I hope he proves me wrong. Either way we are winning, just to what extent?
Much respect to Trask. It was great what he did this year. However, to say it is not debatable is just not being realistic. Jones is a very dynamic QB. He also allows for us to have a run game in our offense which is sorely needed next year. We will not have the same receiving core to spread the ball around. It will be a totally different team. I am not Throwing Trask to the curb but I simply think that if Jones beats him out in the Spring then they should give him a shot. If he cannot make a good decision with the ball then go back to Trask. I think this is very similar situation to what happened with UGA/Fromm/Fields. I strongly believe that UGA is in the playoff right now with Fields at the helm. Jones is no Fields right now but we will never know unless he gets a full look.
