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.]

That Sam Pittman is a bad mother…

    We have The Pit Boss, and no one else does. He’s Kirby’s Erk. I can’t imagine what we’d be like without him.

    I just wish we would’ve gotten Dan Enos with him.

    Pittman’s a great recruiter, that is without question, but the OL scheme…hmmmm. It seems that the scheme is incredibly vanilla, which works until it doesn’t…see LSU and UF. I have seen comments from former linemen that are impressed with the OL, but wonder why they see little trapping and pulling.

      The only thing I’ve seen like that was from LSU last season where Coach O said they made an early adjustment and were able to handle our line after that.

      At least, that’s what I think he said. Sounded sort of like a cross between a bear and a beagle. And I’m not totally sure I agree with him, as we were still breaking nice runs later in the game, but then we’d try some pass or rotate Fields into the game. No rhyme or rhythm.

        Second half od the SECCG and the Sugar Bowl can be added to that LSU game. We looked particularly baffled by what Texas was bringing, made me look at their DC. Big 12 defenses aren’t known for getting that kind of penetration against powerful lines. They interrupted the offense the entire game, even more than LSU did. You can bet some teams on the 2019 schedule will be bringing something similar.

          Amazing how it never occurred to fucking Chaney to throw a couple of screen passes to D’Andre Swift to keep Texas from blitzing every other down.

        A zero technique didn’t make Fromm miss three TD passes in the first half.

      You can’t blame that abortion of a goal line series against Pittman. That was 100% no doubt on fucking Chaney. All he had to do was call the play so Nauta chipped the defensive end. That’s it! Or how about calling a goddamn bootleg?

      LSU’s d-line was a great d-line and it was in Baton Rouge and the belief the Tigers played with was strong. It was kinda like the buzzsaw we ran into in 2017 on the Plains. I don’t think Bama would’ve won that day.

        I watched the UF game the other day and said the same thing about the Goal line stand. Zuniga was coming after the RB on every play. either chip him or call a bootleg and Fromm would’ve walked into the endzone. And it’s not as if he didn’t just do it once; he did it 7 times!!

          Chaney was the fucking worst. I said when he was hired that you’re not winning a national title with Chaney as your OC. The only true success he had prior to 2017 and 2018 (when he had elite players) was at Purdue, but he didn’t have anything to do with Purdue’s offensive success. That was 100% on Joe Tiller. I have hope for Coley just because he’s different. He could be worse. I hope not. He’d have to try hard to be worse than Chaney when everything is on the line against a team that is our equal.

            But UT thinks they struck gold by hiring him away from us….even though they couldn’t get him out of Knoxville fast enough 10 years ago.

        I’ve seen two coaches play us since Kirby got here like their career’s depended on it and won, and in doing so solidified their positions greatly.
        Gus Mahlzahn 2017
        Ed Orgeron 2018
        Mahlzahn got an obscene buyout that I’m pretty sure the Wartigleplainsmen began to regret sometime between the 2nd half of the 2017 Iron Bowl and the second half of the 2017 SECCG. I didn’t like UGA’s loss, but the law of unintended consequences keeps gas in the Gus Bus at least through this season and if that’s when the trip ends? There will be a large stinging welt on the aubrun pocketbook. This makes me happy.
        I like Ed Orgeron and as long as we aren’t playing them geaux Tigers. Coach O’s win put his fan base and more importantly his team squarely behind him. A tough LSU is bad news for the West, and while I’d like a little payback from Bama I’m OK if Yellowshoe puts one on ’em. This makes me happy too.
        After the loss last season a camera caught Orgeron coming off the field with one of his players. The kid had his arm around Orgeron’s neck, grinning like an idiot and Oregeron saying “I told you” as they went off the field. I liked the moment and as much as I hate to lose? LSU earned the win and I respect that.

    We’ve got three on the list, but could have another 3-4 worthy of it, they’re just younger.

      I can almost fantasize about two complete offensive lines, 1A and 1B, that rotate series or situations. We could really demoralize some tired defensive lines in the 4th quarter, especially when we’re rotating 3-4 big backs behind them.

      Hey, if the ol’ Ball Sack can rotate quarterbacks on each play, we could rotate offensive lines.

      • That’s exactly what I’ve envisioned. It’s possible, it’s amazing, and g*d damn I want to see it. Try it out in a cupcake, see how it works. Then 4th Quarter Bama …they rotate, we rotate. It would be the greatest football thing ever.

          I hope so. It would certainly be a strong signal for highly rated linemen to keep piling into Athens. My biggest concern is we have gotten so deep there is no place to sit on the pine. We could lose 4 talented guys to the NFL this coming year, let’s have another experienced group ready to step in for 2020 and rewind the clock.

    I might just be a homer from Toccoa, but I really think Ben Cleveland has proven to be the most dominant guard on the team when he’s healthy. I can’t get over the way he dominated Derek Brown in the 2017 SECCG.
