Yeah, they good.

I know that, generally speaking, preseason watch lists aren’t worth the paper the PR announcement is printed on, but still, this is a nice confirmation of what we already think about Georgia’s offensive line.

Three Georgia Bulldogs have been named to the 2019 Outland Trophy Watch List, the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) announced on Tuesday.

Named to the list are junior offensive guard Solomon Kindley, junior offensive tackle Andrew Thomas, and redshirt sophomore Isaiah Wilson.

The Outland Trophy is awarded to the nation’s best interior lineman as voted by the FWAA. Georgia leads the watch list this season with three players while 15 other schools have two representatives.  [Emphasis added.]

It makes too much sense for the NCAA, so no go.

Miiickey, you got some ‘splaining to do.

So, ESPN does another one of those pointless exercises designed to stir up response, and guess what?

It works.

The reason?

One team surprisingly absent from the Running Back U top 10 is Georgia, which has had its share of talented runners over the years. In the past four years, the likes of Sony Michel, Nick Chubb and Todd Gurley have rumbled their way through Athens, but a lack of star power in the first half of the BCS era held the Dawgs back.

Wut?

You can add Holyfield to that list, but Marc’s point is still made.  ESPN’s stat dudes need to do some re-calibrating.

“What can you learn if you keep winning?”

If Tua thinks losing to Clemson was a good thing for Alabama, I can only hope that he learns another valuable lesson in this year’s SECCG.

“There are folks who could use a scholarship more than our guys need a TV in their locker…”

Former LSU defensive back Eric Reid reacts to yesterday’s news of the school’s lavish new football facility with a dose of reality.

One has everything to do with the other, and it’s out of whack.

Toughness never goes out of style.

If there’s one reason why I don’t think the coordinator change is going to result in a significant shift in Georgia’s offensive philosophy, it’s this:

Alabama linebacker Dylan Moses told reporters Wednesday that games against Georgia were his toughest. He cited the Bulldogs’ wear-you-down offensive style to the point Moses felt like he was “in a brawl.” His comments serve as evidence to Georgia and Alabama being on similar, if not exact, levels of pedigree — based on current state, not history. But surpassing that has been elusive for Smart after two tries.

That had to give Mr. Impose Your Will a stiffy.  And why the hell not?  Georgia’s offense under Smart has remade itself into, if not the most, certainly one of the most physical units in the country.  After working so hard to achieve that, he’s not going to let Coley give that away.  At most, I expect nothing more than some minor tweaking around the edges, but at heart, this offense will remain what we’ve seen from the past two seasons.
