I was prepared to roll my eyes over the latest “Georgia coach not complacent” story as typical offseason fluff, until I saw this blurb:
Gates, a potential four-year starter, should be the team’s best left tackle, according to Bobo. But Gates needs to lose weight, weighing in around 330 this spring, while 305 is the more ideal playing weight at tackle. So he’s not assured a starting spot, nor apparently is anyone not named Andrews.
Gates is officially listed at 318 right now. So based on what Bobo’s saying, he’s actually swung 12 or so pounds further away from what he should be carrying, which ain’t the best endorsement I’ve heard for the S&C program.
So, yeah, I can understand where Bobo is coming from right now. Good thing it’s a long summer.
