Gators and Dawgs, living together

Duke Dawson, former Florida defensive back, reflects on having Sony Michel and Isaiah Wynn as his pro teammates:

While on opposite sides of the heated Florida-Georgia rivalry the last few years, Dawson said he is looking forward to playing with the fellow SEC standouts.

“Those two guys, great players. I’ve been looking at Sony since he was in middle school. Sony’s been playing on varsity since eighth grade so I kind of had a feeling who Sony was coming up,” Dawson said. “Isaiah, I don’t really know him, I didn’t know him at the time, but now I know who he is. I’m most definitely going to reach out to those guys and stay in contact with them. We’re teammates now. There’s no more rivalries. Until that week comes … trust me there’s going to be a lot of funny bets going on.”

I’ll be laughing as long as you’re on the losing end, Duke.

    IF some recruits can’t make up their mind where they want to attend college, what makes folks think they all have the same allegiances that we life long fans do?

    • Yes, and it is silly talking about coaches too. I can promise you, the 4 years Kirby spent in college here may have SOME impact on him never leaving here……..but it won’t even be a factor if some Georgia Way empty suit shows an unwillingness to fight like mad for him when Alabama inevitably comes calling in several years.

        Only if Dabo Swinney turns them down, which he won’t.

          Dabo will certainly be their first choice.

          Too early to say this early, so many things can change before Satan steps down. If the call were to be made this year, my bet is Dabo would stay at Clemson. In 5 years, or more, the landscape could be very different (one of the schools could be under sanctions, ADs could be a factor, Dabo could be even more entrenched at Clemson, etc.) I don’t think the decision will be all about money, and his years at Clemson will outnumber those in Tusky.

          I truly have no idea why any coach with steady success at a Top 20 program (i.e. not fleeing the chopping block) would want to follow a GOAT level coach. It’s just begging to derail your income and career.

    I certainly hope that future generations of UF NFL players will have a more difficult time dealing with playing alongside Bulldogs. Let’s face it, Duke probably doesn’t have that many bad memories of facing UGA.

    I still hope Michel runs over him and Wynn pancakes him during practice.

    As long as they are Patriots, I won’t be cheering for them except to do well enough that they can sign lucrative free agent deals elsewhere.
