Put down the Kool-Aid.

Otherwise known as Seth Emerson’s post-spring assessment of Georgia’s secondary.  Gallows humor – and I’m a sucker for gallows humor – for the win:

And don’t rule out a cornerback being moved to safety, or a safety to cornerback, or a receiver moving to defensive back, or Pruitt holding open tryouts on the Myers quad during the fraternity rush period.

We’d better hope the front seven is epically good.  (It wouldn’t hurt if Pruitt is, too.)

    Darius Swain always seemed up for a move of positions.

    Has he any eligibility left?

  2. John Denver is full of shit...

    Normaltown…your just messin’ with us right?
    I guess if he would play better the TeeVeeee would get his name right…
    Anywhoo…after watching this, I am glad someone figured out this kid is not a CB…#4 that is…hope he is better at WR.

      Two things this video makes me long for this upcoming season … (1) a half-decent secondary (2) another year of eligibility for AM (no offense intended to HM).

    If our secondary ends up having at least an “average” year in 2014, with all the attrition, freshmen and walk-ons on that unit, one would have to give Pruitt a lot of credit. That’s a big “if” in my opinion.

      I bet it happens. I think Pruitt is going to do so well here we may not have him for long.

    • I think it will be at least that and, I suspect, even better. A lot will depend on what happens at Safety, if there’s any answer.

      As much as I hate to say it, if Moore has to start it’s likely that will be a bad sign. On the other hand, perhaps Pruitt can coach him up. In 4 years, Lakatos/Grantham couldn’t do it, so if Pruitt can that’ll be instant proof that he’s a heckuva secondary coach.

      Matthews doesn’t look like an answer to me, at this point. Mauger .. maybe. Shattle Fenteng might be a possibility at Safety, according to his highlight reel. Depends on whether he can hit. He also has to learn to tackle, but he’ll have to do that anyway. He can definitely play corner.

      A lot depends on what happens this summer, with both groups. But especially Safety, with all of them. If the light were to come on for Terry, he might be an answer. And a very nice answer.

    Actually, recalling the results of Jim Jones’ Kool-Aid drinking party, maybe it actually IS time to start guzzling the stuff.

      And for those not on the bus, don’t forget the “Flavor Aid — a grape-flavored beverage similar to Kool-Aid. We’ll get back to that last one in a moment.”

      “Third, plenty of evidence suggests that both Kool-Aid and Flavor Aid were present at Jonestown — though there was more of the latter. Therefore, in a sense, everybody’s right. It may simply come down to whether the term ‘Kool-Aid’ is catchier than ‘Flavor Aid,’ and history decided — much to the consternation of Kool-Aid’s marketing department.”

      I’d rather guzzle Blue Moon. It is just May, so if we get to Nov and are staring a 5-6 in the face, the the Jim Jones Kool Aid stand might be an option.

        Oh no, Moe. I looked at the schedule and there is no way we’re 5-6 going into the Tech game. Worst case we’re…6-5…(gulp).
