Another dismissed Georgia player makes it back to D-1 football. At least he’s not playing quarterback in the SEC.
Seriously, it’s good to hear he’s straightened himself out. Best of luck to him.
One thing I can’t help wondering about after reading this piece by Bill Shanks – okay, one thing after I wondered why the Macon Telegraph can’t find somebody who writes better than Bill Shanks – is would people be moaning about an 8-4 season in 2013 if C.J. Mosley hadn’t tipped that pass and Mitchell had come down with it to put last year’s Georgia squad in a national title game?
My point here isn’t to play woulda, coulda. I’m simply asking how much Georgia making a title game after winning the SEC would have changed your current perception of the program and Richt, assuming your feelings are similar to those of Shanks’. If your position is that it wouldn’t have and that 2013 reflects not so well on either, I respect your intellectual consistency. If, though, you admit that you wouldn’t feel nearly as harshly about both had Georgia faced Notre Dame, are you really saying that your disappointment boils down to a tipped pass?
Again, I’m not asking if you agree with Shanks’ arguments. I’m sure many of you do. I’m just curious how much you’d be complaining if Mosley hadn’t made a great play. Tell me in the comments.
I don’t think it’s worth reading too much into this, but the coaches are using bowl practice to take a look at Tramel Terry at safety.
On the other hand, this is an interesting development:
Meanwhile, safety Shaquille Fluker was not at practice on Monday and an announcement of a transfer could be coming this week.
The junior college transfer was away from the team to return to his home in Meridian, Miss., near the end of the regular season. He has not played this season. He’s been listed on the injury report during the season with an undisclosed illness.
Damian Swann’s indicated he’s not leaving early, so if that holds up, almost all of Georgia’s secondary will return next season. There isn’t much of a numbers game, then, which makes you wonder if this indicates the coaches are seriously exploring other options. Lord knows the safety position could use whatever help it could get.
