Clemson & Georgia will play Sept. 4, 2021 in Charlotte, sources told @Stadium. It will be 1st meeting since 2014. East Carolina vs. Appalachian State, originally scheduled for Charlotte on Sept. 4, could move to Thursday, Sept. 2, 2021, or another date, source said
UGASports has learned Georgia head coach Kirby Smart told supporters in Charlotte on Monday night that redshirt freshman quarterback D’Wan Mathis has been officially cleared to practice ahead of spring camp.
Mathis – who underwent brain surgery last May – will compete with grad transfer Jamie Newman, Stetson Bennett and Carson Beck for playing time once spring practice begins March 17.
Boy, what a change in the quarterback room from last September, eh?
“We cannot justify why some students can transfer and others cannot without sitting out,” one ACC athletic director told The Athletic via text message on Monday. “It is also hard to reconcile coaches moving from school to school, although there is a buyout usually, while still trying to limit student transfers.”
It’s hard to keep defending the indefensible. Now do NIL compensation.
The pressure is on Kirby Smart at Georgia more than ever with another recruiting title.
Farrell’s take: FACT. It’s time to start winning SEC and national titles, Georgia. History shows that the team dominating in recruiting always ends up winning a national title. From Texas to LSU to USC to Florida and to Alabama, the recruiting dynasties always break through for a national title. Now that Kirby Smart has won three-straight recruiting titles, it’s time to put that together on the field. He came a play away from winning it all, but that’s not enough.
So, what happens if he doesn’t win a natty this year, or even next year? I suspect it’s much like Greg McGarity — as long as the money keeps rolling in at an obscene rate, Smart’s at Georgia as long as he wants to be.
That being said, I feel like patience will eventually be rewarded on the field.
“And Georgia fans, don’t be turds. Enjoy this. Soak it up. It’s awesome. If you don’t win this year, it’s still not a failure. It’s a heck of a run. Back-to-back in the Playoff era hasn’t been done. So, to ask for a third I feel like it’s gluttonous. I feel like it’s not OK. But we’ll be in the mix.”-- David Pollack, On3.com, 5/9/23
