“In this league, in November it’s won in the trenches.”

I have a hard time getting a mental picture of Tracy Rocker being happy, so let’s just say that I think he’s appreciative of the quality of the incoming defensive lineman class.

I’ll be happy for him, thank you very much.

    I know he said he turned down the Raiders because he wanted some stability for his son which I’m sure was a huge factor. But I’ve also gotta believe he realizes how much talent he’s got to work with over the next couple years. You’d have to be an idiot to walk away with guys like #JollyNation and Ledbetter coming in.

    Oh jeez, one of the signees has already had shoulder surgery? That was Neil calloway’s recruiting calling card.

    I’d rather Tracy Rocker be angry. Coach those grunts to be mean and hungry.

    Actually, Rocker is a pretty jovial guy…till the whistle blows.

    I thought his comments about needing to get bigger and bigger across the defensive line to win in November to give the team a chance to win in December were interesting, especially given the charge from the DC to the D-linemen to lose weight coming into last season.

    I think Pruitt’s defenses may be ahead of the curve in defending the spread and HUNHs (just compare his stats vs. Alabama over the last 2 years in defending Auburn with 2 different teams).

    But I wonder if, given the results of the Fla. game last year and a date with Alabama between the hedges coming up, Rocker is helping to lead a re-consideration of that strategy, at least in the near-term.

    Can’t wait to see how the new S&C regime factors in. GO DAWGS!

      If we have enough quality depth and substitute like we should there is no reason for Georgia to not have big D-Linemen.

    There have been several times over the last few years where we looked hapless against some brand of run game – whether it’s Bama ’12 or Fla or GT in ’14. I hope this helps, because it’s one thing to give up points and another to simply get pantsed play after play after play.

      It’s nice you brought up Bama in ’12 though: that’s the proof that just throwing a 350 lb NT out there isn’t going to cut it alone.
