Re: ESPN Pre-Season Top 25

UGA returns 3 starters on offense, has to replace half of the defense and is rated 4th? Talent disparity in college football gets ridiculous sometimes. Georgia is my #2 team since I grew up pulling for the Dawgs (father, uncle, cousin...most of my extended family are alums). They've had unbelievabl...

Re: ESPN Pre-Season Top 25

Georgia has had years of top of the heap type recruiting classes, they just reload with 5 stars. As we've seen there are only a hand full of schools that are really in the hunt for the playoffs and they are one of them. The rest of us have to know our place in the order of the football world.

Re: Who stays, who goes?

App has had at least one 1000 yard running back every season (excluding the 2 transition seasons) for the last 20 years. A pass crazy OC is not what we need. A 60-40 run to pass mix is App's signature. That should continue. Petersen was Scottie Montgomery's (9-26 record) OC at ECU and engineered on...

Re: Wake Forest QB headed to Georgia

I'd been waiting all year to see "it" since the 2018 NO Bowl, and he got hurt on about his 3-4th carry. So what's another 225 days or so from now of waiting again?

Not knocking our other runners, because we are fortunately blessed with danged good ones.

Re: Would you be happy with 8-4, if?

Throw out the winding down FCS and transition years, they are a blip on the radar. 8 wins is a poor year for APP Football for the conference we are in now along with the caliber of recruits we are signing and the number of games on the schedule and possible bowl game awarded after 6 wins.

Unreliable sources. He's being looked at for a waterboy position at UNC.
Hell, I thought it was Head Cheerleader?

it'd take us 6 months in the AAC to start this same thread about the SEC. Greener grass. But I guess I'm OK with that.

To the topic. No, I'm not satisfied with no stinking 8-4. We should be 13-1 in the AAC. :D
Nothing wrong with wanting better.

Re: Would you be happy with 8-4, if?

With the talent we've had the last few years, and next year, I think we would be a 10+ game winner in the AAC. With the more money exposure, better bowls, I'd take my chances for a better conference. We have a history of doing football right since the Working days - over 35 years, no reason to think...

I like the AAC bowl competition, better than the Sun Belt. Wish we could move for football, but that's been discussed.

Hard for ULL or any G5 to compete with salaries for HC & Staff. He's probably gone if offered.
I agree, he's gone for the 3.5-4 million SEC money, if offered.

#1 Aron Cruickshank was pretty danged fast on those returns. Their O line knows where to find the feed trough for sure. Wisconsin gave the Rose Bowl away. It's going to be tough to win in Madison.
