    I like Daniels a lot plus we’d have him for 2 seasons. Hope he’s healed up and as I understand it he needs a waiver to play and I’m not sure he has grounds though.

      He doesn’t have legit grounds, but that hasn’t stopped the NCAA from fumbling this. I appreciate it if he does sit out the year per policy but have to admit I am not crazy for his being added to the QB room. It is an encouraging sign that he feels Monken is the right guy to work with but with Newman, Beck, and Vandergriff already on board, or committed, I think it is just too crowded. Understand that Vandergriff could de-commit, and may, but this feels a little uncomfortable.

        So Kirby should have turned him away?

          Probably not, “mo talent” is usually always a commodity you want on your team. But QB is always a tricky position due to the egos involved, and the fact the position isn’t used as an “in and out” job in the ebb and fow of the game. Those two points can lead to locker room issues in many cases, including the last time we had a room crowded with top talent.

          So the answer is complicated, you want them if your starter gets injured and the backup doesn’t do well in the bright lights, but you probably are fine without them if your top 2 already on board can get the job done. It certainly makes you wonder if KS and Monken were really satisfied with the current roster, plus a verbally committed Vandergriff.


      • QB depth + separation is the hardest thing to manage. Rights formula of RS freshman and stellar upperclassman was one way, but then its screwed if one of those guys busts. Or if you want a Stafford. Then it’s the one position where experience is so critical, but only one guy can be on the field. I’ve spent a ton of time in the last 20 years thinking on it, and theres no easy answers. It seems coaches have figured out that getting a quality upperclassman transfer is a good way to fill a gap. We also may be in an age where quarterback only gets 1 or 2 years. A Murray or Greene maybe a thing of the past.

        Theres a handful of ways to handle it, none ideal. You need snaps, but that comes at a cost of putting inexperience out. I think this is why transfers become so appealing. Newman has a ton of snaps at a lesser school. Now hes getting superb level training and program. I don’t think it’s an accident that Coaches started heading this way 10 years ago and now it’s commonplace.

    He looks good, but we have to consider that he was playing in the PAC-12, where defense is played sparingly.

      True that. Plus, highlight tapes only show highlights, duh. As a Dawg fan, watching the video can make you all tingly, but I wonder why he didn’t expect to beat out the guy that replaced him when he got injured. I just don’t know. You could put together a pretty impressive highlight tape of Skinny10’s first season I would think. I will say one more thing: USC has sent us another guy they didn’t think could play in Jarvis Jones, so maybe this is a great thing.

    Can he bring number 21 with him to catch his passes? He looked damn good, too.

    Like it or not, the virus has an opportunity to change the playing field and not on a good way. In some instances it will act as a leveler to player and team readiness simply because all schools are coming from the same disadvantage. Due to Kirby’s latest informed pronouncements, I believe that UGA is and will be ahead of the curve.

    I can see the difference to teams playing under the virus overcast to be the same as a rainy game and a muddy playing field. You just don’t know what can happen(think USCe last season).

    is his delivery a little sidearm?

    Looks impressive.

      Kind of looked that way to me too. It also looks like he’s leaning slightly backwards when he throws. Didn’t see him step into any of his throws. But can’t argue that they weren’t very catchable passes.

    That back-shoulder fade.. my goodness.

    We should poach players from USC more often. Will Ferrell, you’re next.
