Lawrence Cager, gone.
It’s a shame he got to a place he wanted to be, shone and then had it all come to a halt. Best of luck on recovery, man.

Well, fuck all.
Good to see the Atlanta/Georgia Sports Curse is alive and well.
He’ll always be remembered for the Cocktail Party. Best of luck Lawrence. DGD.

Damn, this one hurts. Good luck at the next level.
He’s a DGD. I hate to see it end like this, but thankful for what he gave us this year.
I hope he can rehab and be ready to shine for the NFL draft.

A DGD… tough break for him.
Could not catch a ball last year at Miami, and could not drop one once he suited up for Dawgs, good job young man and hope this is last of your injuries going forward.
Perhaps he’ll be back for the fiesta bowl?
Why do you think this means it is completely over? I see he will miss the SEC championship game, but there could be 2 more games after that. Maybe I missed something?
You couldn’t find a damn UVA shirt or hat down at the beach and, all of the sudden at sunset, everyone was Hoo!
Right at the end of the UVA/VT game, saw a long shot of a guy in a GA “G” shirt in the midst of the UVA crowd possibly getting ready to storm the field…
Good luck to Cager, he played hard and played well.
With that said, he was a third or even fourth option on a Miami team with a marginal at best passing game. There is a reason he was a grad transfer. His talent, while good, was relatively marginal. That’s why another year at UGA was in the cards instead of Sunday in the NFL.
The real question is why Fromm is almost pathologically dependent on a single target.
Pickens has infinitely more athleticism than Cager and a similar build with more twitch.
It’s my sincerest hope that Fromm ditches the security blanket game plan and works the ball to numerous targets. Unless the talent of a player is transcendent, there is no value in becoming dependent on an individual receiver.
The offense is easier to defend when you the opponent knows what your tendencies are and what your thought process is.
Use the tight ends, use the backs, use Pickens and Blaylock for shot plays. Use Pickens and Blaylock on stop routes and tunnel screens. Enough with the obsessive dependence on throwing to covered receivers and hoping they can box out a DB and come up with an exceptional play in coverage.
Cager being out is not an excuse for struggling. It’s a damn symptom of limited scheme and offense and quarterback.
Scheme, scheme, scheme for God’s sake.
Word is Bobo is done at CSU, with the official word to come tomorrow or Sunday. I expect Kirby to have him in Athens Monday morning as a analyst, with the express job of game planning for LSU and hopefully, to fix Fromm’s mechanics and confidence, which Coley has fucked all to hell.
Then Bobo will slide right over as the OC and QB Coach for 2020 as James Coley takes his act to TAMU.
We can certainly hope so. I hate it that Bobo failed at CSU but I’d love to have him running our offense, given the talent Kirby and Pittman are accumulating.
In 2018 at Miami, Cager was 2nd in yards per game and first in yards per reception. That was with a revolving disaster at QB.
He’s been Fromm’s main target because he has a ton of experience and real physical skills.
He would be starting on a lot of P5 teams. Most of them, actually.
exactly…..but it is easier to blame than to look for a reason. The good part is, if we we going to lose him, now is the time…..as I truly believe our freshman are starting to grow up.
He was tied for 3rd in receptions. That made him the 3rd or 4th target.
He had 37 catches in 27 games. It is what it is. He’s a free agent candidate at best at next level.
Pickens is a top 2 round talent. I stand by my assertions.
You are a fool. Cager is far more polished as a WR than Pickens – Route running, making routine catches (ie not making simple catches look spectacular), blocking, awareness, using his physical advantage, etc.
This isn’t a video game, buddy.
“This isn’t a video game, buddy.”
HEY….that’s my line!
I want to thank Mark Richt in some way for Lawrence joining us.
Either way, he was a fine addition to our team and a DGD always!
