Scenes from a scrimmage

Sure, it’s edited for highlights.

That doesn’t mean it isn’t fun to watch, though.  Anything in particular catch your eye?

    Who is #9? He looks like he could be trouble to cover.

    Holifield getting past Patrick? That was pointed out as part of the RBs having a good day.

      Rumor is; Patrick is not in the best condition and isn’t in Kirby’s good graces right now. Running past him may not be that big of a deal but Hoylfield does look good running.

        Little Real Deal is a pretty amazing blend of power and speed, imo. Guy is a stud and will earn more playing time despite the talented group UGA has on board. Until Zeus fully recovers, he may be top of the list with this combo attribute.

    I didn’t see that big brace on White’s knee. Looked like he had a sleeve or something on it, but not that bulky thing. Very good news.

    I don’t think S&C is just happy talk anymore. These guys look way more sculpted than ever.

      No question, AusDawg85. Scott Sinclair gets it. The squat is the foundation of his strength program, because total body strength starts with the squat.

      From Mark Rippetoe: “The squat leaves nothing out – there are no holes in its kinetic chain to patch up. Hard and simple are the keys to Big and Strong. Don’t be distracted. We already know how this works. It’s worked for tens of thousands of guys for decades. The rest of your training will follow suit, and you’ll have learned the most valuable lessons of the weight room: a simple, hard program works best, and that you get out of your training – and your life – exactly what you put into it.”

      No more Mark Hocke, thank goodness.

      “Hocke was loud, boisterous and many in the strength and conditioning world wondered if he knew what he was doing. Perhaps the most memorable moment of Hocke’s time at UGA was him putting high-level recruits through nearly an hour’s worth of conditioning in the summer of 2015 before actual camp activities even started. Georgia’s premiere summer recruiting event was a total failure, but Hocke was really loud. 



      ‘You are going to be a dog today!’ Hocke would scream to the recruits over a PA system. It was a nightmare.

      ‘All of the players were excited because he was high energy,’ said one former assistant. ‘But then no one was actually getting stronger. It was a joke. As the summer ended the guys were like “Yo, I don’t feel better.” ‘ ”

    That clip didn’t but the practice video from last week that caught my eye. The pad level of the lineman doing one on ones was at the right level l, both OL and DL.

    WR unit looks to be loaded….just a guess here, but thinks it will not be easy as some think for “D Rob”.

    Looks like #3 (“Zeus”, I believe) made a long run at about the 1:07/1:08 mark….good to see.

    I think there’s a fundamental shift. We, as in all of us farts, conceive football as being Saturday’s. These kids? Football for them is competing every day against other teammates. The games will be secondary to their experiences. The true meaning of football for these athletes happens every day and that’s the way they like it.

    #7’s swipe down on the lineman’s arms. Ouch.
