In Georgia’s secondary, youth will be served.

Believe it or not, Devin Bowman is the only senior member of the secondary Jeremy Pruitt is coaching this season.

Man, that’s some serious attrition Pruitt’s working his way through.

  1. And judging by last year’s results, CJP can evaluate talent extremely well to get the best players on the field to give us the best chance at having a better than average defensive backfield. Pruitt is the best thing to happen to our defense since DP47.

    Better enjoy having JP while we have him. I believe he will be head coach in 2 years.

      Richt gotta win something while CJP is still here. Richt was fortunate that he had Van Gorder when he won something.

        Van Gorder? Who went 19-25 as a head coach. Leading Georgia Southern to their worst season ever. Who was also the DC for Auburn in 2012 after the Falcons ran him off when they went 0-8 in the SEC enjoying their worst season in 60 years? That Brian. I thought he was lucky he had such players as defensive tackle Johnathan Sullivan, safety Thomas Davis and defensive end David Pollack , safety Sean Jones and linebackers Boss Bailey, as well as Odell Thurman playing for him. Very lucky. He reminded me of a petulant child in his photo op with CMR.

          man you are crazy unless you have some personal ulterior motives. Van Gorder defense didn’t allow more than 30 points in all games he was here but one. That is as impressive as a defense can be. Check the stats before spewing nothing but BS.

            I am sorry I interrupted your Brian love fest here. And let’s be honest, he has a porntache that even Tom Selleck would be jealous of. But I digress.
            Stats… you want stats? You can’t hand Boy Brians stats!
            74th rushing D
            73th total D
            77 passing D.
            Brian is gone from Georgia Padawhan. He keeps a moving van on will call. K?

              There are those who still worship at this guy’s feet. As you point out, we had great talent while he was in Athens. BVG would have benefited from spending more time under Richt, not the other way around. I didn’t wish him the failures he has had everywhere since but he did leave us during recruiting due to him temper tandrum. Would never want him back. CJP is doing a great job developing/recruiting young talent. And he is learning about becoming a successful HC from a man he sought out. BVG had the chance but blew it.

                It won’t matter what some crazies think. The fact of the matter is that Richt won something when Van Gorder was the DC for the first 3 or so years. Richt hasn’t been the same since then and might have a couple of years left in him to deliver. I hope Pruitt does what Van Gorder did for Richt to save his job.

                  Jeepers Padawhan….Porntache would still be wandering around Div III without CMR pulling him up by his short pants. Hes a hero at 30 points a game allowed to you? Keep your hero… cheer for the Domers if you need to but that is some really silly shit you just owned. Silly. Very silly. Goofy too. Now take a breathe .. . where do kids blog about sports now a days? This ain’t the place. K?

                  AHD did it well when describing the players who played for vG. What seems to be our problem is placing an early mantel around our D coach before he gets his 2-3yr trial completed? Some people push our D coach for Head Coach as a way to denigrate Richt. Only a few go by the stats and when a good stat occurs some blow that one accolade into a complete coaching job. It’s happened to all the D coachs since Richt arrived. Except for Willy.

                  It just goes to show that egos are just as irrational in assessing possible new Head Coachs as they are in burying old Head Coachs.

                  It doesn’t take any special aptitude for CFB to be able to state that Pruitt is on an upward road, but when he arrives to that predictable platform, no one knows. Why don’t we let him prove he can be a D-Coordinator in the SEC before we place him on that dais. He had a good start with us last season, but there is much to be wanted for a rush D in the games we lost last year. In testing our secondary last year, we were fortunate to see opponents drop game-changing passes or see their QB get rattled when passing during games that were to test our secondary. How many of you saw wide open players in our secondary last year? One explanation for the “luck” that prevented further disaster was , in fact, the D rush on the QB that made him pass early and miss or he got sacked. So our D-line and linebackers can get much credit for the not-fully-tested secondary. There is promise for things to get better on D this season, but why don’t we just sit back and relax until we see that change.

                  Sorry, after reading that I shouldn’t have even responded to your earlier bait. You seem to be new to this football stuff, run along laddie and play with the other children. And tell Uncle Brian to take GT to the cleaners this year.

        Considering Van Gorder has done just slightly more than dick since he left, perhaps the fortunate nature of their relationship wasn’t a one way street.
