Banged up in Knoxville

Soon to be heard on the recruiting trail:

Pruitt will try to use that as a sales point, but you better believe that everyone else is going to be showing that statistic to every kid’s momma and asking her how she likes those odds for her boy.

I’m not rooting for kids to be hurt, of course, but considering the damage the Neyland Stadium turf did to Georgia’s 2013 season (and Nick Chubb’s career), I can’t help but wonder if there’s a little karma at work here.

    I expect at least a few of those are victims of roster management.

    Not to mention Keith Marshall’s career…or Justin Scott-Wesley’s career

  3. And Edwards in a game that Georgia was matching them TD to TD until he went down with (you guessed it) a knee injury. It also happens to be a game that UT kept Manning in – and continue to throw deep into the 4th Quarter. That turf continues to be garbage.

    The Karma is coming with the dominance that Georgia is showing over Manning’s beloved Vols.. Manning was an arrogant prick in college – ask Jamie Ann Naughright.

    Even if the Dawgs plummeted the vowels until the end of time, it still wouldn’t be enough payback. There couldn’t be enough payback, ever.

    Pruitt may be processing some of those guys.

      Processing only works when you have better guys to replace them with. Last time I checked, Tennessee doesn’t have any issues with space on the roster….

      Agree, processing at work here. Generally speaking, IMO, removal of guys that don’t suit Pruitt’s plans, haven’t bought in, etc. Not unexpected.

    All the knees in Knoxville could not pay for Chubb.

      Quality writing, and only $30 a year at this time…nuff said. But if you are looking at it from a UGA football angle, there isn’t all that many articles; what there is from Seth are excellent. If you follow other sports, it becomes more valuable. Plus there are quality articles on other CFB teams. Definitely worth a small amount of money to me even though I don’t follow baseball, NFL, etc., and the reach is increasing every month. I get about 4 articles a week of just UGA football, more in-season, so don’t expect great volume unless you follow several other teams.

      It’s outstanding, but like Mac said, not a whole lot of Georgia football content right now. Seth puts out 4-ish articles a week and they are excellent. Sometimes Seth and Chip Towers/Mike Griffith cover the same topic and Seth’s articles are wayyy better. I haven’t had the subscription during football season, so I’ll be interested to see if the writing ramps up once the season arrives. There’s some fantastic coverage of other sports, baseball in particular to tide you over if you follow any other teams. They’re also doing a good series on the history of college football.

    • Definitely. $ well spent. Frequency of UGA articles increases during season as well.

    Senator, maybe we should be playing Tennessee at a neutral site.

    Rule #1: Don’t practice at Neyland Stadium.
