In defense of Mark Webb

Last season, I dinged him in a couple of Observations posts for getting picked on in pass coverage (although he tightened things up late in the year), but he did have a lot on his plate.

His run defense was excellent and PFF gives him a 90.5 grade for tackling.

Blowed up on Rocky Top

Josh continues his yeoman’s work reviewing last year’s offense with this take on what happened in Knoxville here and here, but my favorite play from that game was this play from the defense:

 

From the first “oooh” you can hear in the background as Stokes delivers the hit to the ref’s block to help spring Crowder, to the way Crowder ducks under the oncoming Vol to finish the play, it’s really a perfect fifteen seconds of Georgia football.  Gotta love it.

The road to amateurism hell is paved with good intentions.

Between Trevor Lawrence’s GoFundMe page for victims of COVID-19 and Sam Ehlinger’s efforts…

… I assume we’re now past the stage of denying that at least some college football players have NIL rights of value in the market place. ($$)  If this doesn’t destroy college football as we know it, how would letting these kids find ways to raise money for themselves do so?

Your Daily Gator knows it’s Florida’s time.

Over at Swamp247, they’re thrilled with Pete Fiutak’s “there’s a chance Georgia’s a disappointment” piece.

Here’s a guy who’s got it all figured out, even though…

… he “honestly don’t keep up enough to know”.

Preseason Homerism, for the win.  Keep the faith, baby.

You think we’ve got problems?

For those of you who think Georgia has issues on offense going into the 2020 season, there are issues on offense and then there’s Vanderbilt.

Musical palate cleanser, 5000 gigs and counting

Yesterday, Richard Thompson performed live from his living room on Facebook.  It was terrific, with songs from Fairport, his first two albums and others across his sizable book of work.  Also, plenty of commentary, equal parts of awkwardness and charm, spread throughout.

It was a great gesture, watched by over 10,000.  You can find it on his Facebook page if you scroll down a little bit.  Highly recommended.

By the way, he’s promising to do another in a couple of weeks.  Stay tuned.
