Like the swallows returning to Capistrano…

… somebody talks up Georgia’s offensive playcalling and tight ends.

Tight end was a position of special affinity for Coley at Miami, according to Zagacki. The Hurricanes produced three tight ends who each were drafted in the first four rounds of the NFL draft under his watch — Clive Walford, David Njoko and Christopher Herndon. Georgia is in bit of a rebuild at that position. But confidence is high in seasoned senior Charlie Woerner, graduate transfer Eli Wolf and redshirt freshman John FitzPatrick.

Oh, special affinity.  Well, I’m sure that makes all the difference.

    I have a special affinity for blonds with a slight overbite. Think Claudia Schiffer. But hey, if he likes tight ends, who am I to judge.

    I think we could copy and paste any number of tight end stories written over the years. Then, halfway through the season when we actually throw a couple of passes to one of our tight ends, we could copy and paste any number of ‘Wow! We actually Threw the Ball to One of Our Tight Ends!’ stories written over the years. Less work for you anyway Senator.

    They’ve been talking this game since Ben Watson’s days in the red and black…

      100%. I think Larry Brown was the first UGA TE that I was irritated wasn’t getting the ball more. We’ve had a pretty ridiculous run of athletic TEs over the years that never seem to get the ball enough (Brown, Watson, Jermaine Wiggins, Leonard Pope, Orson Charles, Isaac Nauta, and likely now Woerner). Seems like about the only who got fed the ball regularly during his career was Randy McMichael. Other than that, a whole lot of wishful thinking on our part.

      Ben Watson’s day?! Try going back to Norris Brown or Clarence Kay.

    I’m just glad that winning has gotten rid of the “players only” meeting where they call each other out and demand that they all need to “step up”



    Woerner is probably the most underutilized player in a long time for Ga. When you watch his high school tapes and the plays he has made at Ga.(the few times they throw to him) he has been amazing. He’s fast, big and tough.What else do you need? THE BALL!!!!!!!

      I would love to see Woerner get the ball regularly. Wasn’t it in the game against UF last year we hit Nauta multiple times in a row for good gains? The good problem is, we have so many talented players to throw too.

    During a recent discussion about our new coordinators, I posted the response, “At least no one is talking about throwing to the TEs”. Oh well, it had to come up sooner or later. It’s our annual song and we have a duty.

    With this particular OL, use of the TE may be the most important change we need from Coley. Would take more pressure off the other receivers. I have an affinity for success and this seems to be a weapon we should utilize more than ever before.

    It’s interesting how they parse the credit for these kinds of things. Njoku and Herndon played at least some of their time for Richt, after Coley was gone. Coley probably recruited/coached them for some period of time though.
