Georgia AD reportedly ordered security to take Kentucky fan’s Eddie Gran sign during UK-UGA basketball game
The two most common words used in any article written by Bratton are "if" and "reportedly". This is a perfect ending to the UK football one year dynasty. In December, it was all about billboards in New York City. And now, it's third grade homemade signs in Athens.
The real impact of the transfers will be the 2020 recruiting class. Fromm, Tua and Hurts(last year) could all leave after 2019, that will greatly affect the QB commits for 2020. Fields, Lawrence, Rattler, Bo Nix will all have at least two years left.
Yep. We have a 5-star TE who catches one pass for three yards against Texas. That was some great play calling by Chaney.
I guess you missed Ed O throwing his headset down at the end of the half against UCF. If i have a head coach who doesn't show that kind of emotion, then i have the wrong head coach.
The only one I really questioned was Riley Ridley. With all the big time receivers in the draft this year, he could of really helped his draft status in 2020 by playing another year with Fromm and the UGA offense. So, its time for Stanley, Robertson and Holloman to step up with Blaylock coming in.
So OU couldn't beat UGA or Bama with the last two Heisman winners. Hurts does not have the passing of Mayfield or Murray, so I will go with Bama on that head to head matchup. Transfer has nothing to do with beating Bama. It's all about NOT having to play SEC defenses and padding the stats before 2020 NFL draft.
How is losing Holyfield and Nauta such a problem? Nobody, including Connor O'Gara expected Holyfield to be a 1,000 yard rusher. And, if Swift and Zamir White were healthy all year, he probably wouldn't have been. Nauta caught 30 passes for 3 TD's. Given the same targets, Woerner could do the same.
Graduate? Probably better chance of beating out Fields at OSU. Hes on track to be a 24 year old senior. Kid wants to party, stay in college and be the BMOC.
This is a lot like the UT spin of how Jim Chaney couldn't wait to get back to Knoxville because of the "blah, blah, blah." He couldn't wait to steal their money.
Muschamp better enjoy the facility while he can because another season like 2018 will probably be his last one in Columbia.
Next thing Herbie wants is to rename it Urban Meyer Bowl.
So according to Conor, keeping Eddie Gran, who was not interested in being a position coach with UGA, is a winner for UK because they can now be like Northwestern and hope to get to 8 wins every year. Well, congratulations I guess.
Regression to the mean has a lot more to do with Felipe Franks and "third and Grantham" than it does with UGA.
Late afternoon update> FootballScoop spoke with folks with direct knowledge of the situation and believe it is fair to say Eddie was contacted about a role on the staff at Georgia. Based on our conversations, it seems “offered” is a bit overstated.
Chaney did. Which is exactly why Kirby was not about to match the $1.6 million that UT is paying.

I would consider it very tempting. Hurts would be able to play against a very average ACC schedule and could put up big numbers.. Spending final year of college in South Beach? Sign me up for that...
He and Fromm have been crushing "3rd and Grantham" for two years. Of course, the fact that Jimbo Fisher wanted him as OC at Texas A&M and that Manny Diaz wanted him back as OC should not carry more weight than some rants by Miami fans.
Seems to me that there is a big difference between paying sponsors and paying readers. But, then again, UT "stole" Jim Chaney and "only" had to give him a 60% raise and a $500k donation to UGA. It's just semantics.
You know Kirby always likes to have the "ones vs ones". The journalistic acumen at SDS is laughable.
Nobody pays to read any articles on SDS - basketball, football or anything else. Well, maybe UT fans pay to read SDS. The UT football program obviously has no problem paying for something that nobody else will.
Just remember that SDS also reported how UK has, with Gran as OC, "established a powerhouse running program than churns out 1,000 yard rushers". Other than Snell, UK has had 2 backs reach 1,000 yards - this century.....
Do you folks not realize that UGA already has an OC? Coley was promoted to co-coordinator after 2017 AND promoted to QB coach. Chaney was demoted to co-coordinator and TE coach. Why? Kirby wanted to keep Coley much more than he wanted to keep Chaney.
But you never know, after Chaney flames out at RockyFlop, maybe they can give Malzahn a 60% raise, too.......
Thanks for the friendly offer, but might have to pass on this one....
And you were in the room? Or at Kirby's house when the offer was made? Listen people, UGA has their coordinator. His name is Coley and he was co-coordinator in 2018 as well as QB coach. Why do you think he was made co-coordinator after 2017 and promoted to QB coach? Because Kirby wanted to keep him more than he wanted to keep Chaney. Gran was contacted about becoming QB/TE coach at UGA, positions now open.
You should go see the Eleven Warriors blog for OSU. It is hilarious right now. All of the Suckeyes are just destroying Martell because he is spoiled and doesn't want to compete and thinks the job should have been his. Do they not realize how they came to be the home of Fields?
Did you write this 3 days ago and forget to post it? Lamar and Mullen declared yesterday. How does a team lose 6-7 starters on defense and only have "a bit of a drop-off"? 4 and 5 star freshman/sophomores do not just replace the d-line that Clemson had this year.
smsatUGA 1 DAY AGO Once again, be careful what you wish for OSU. Guess what will happen if Fields is granted the waiver and then wins starting QB job? Bye bye Tate Martell. The QB transfer roller coaster is just getting started in college football.
Funny how we haven't heard a word about UGA preparations for Kirby defending the Cheney offense. People are so busy patting UT on the head, they seem to have forgotten than Kirby was a pretty good D-coordinator at Bama.
