Todd Gurley, for the win

Given how the school didn’t have his back with the NCAA when he was suspended, it’s amazing how loyal Gurley has remained to UGA.  He’s the embodiment of a DGD.

    Gurley is a DGD.

    I get what you’re saying, but man, McGarity and B-M and the president aren’t “the school,” or at least, the totality of Georgia. The students, the alums, his teammates, his coaches, we all compromise UGA as much as a useless, sniveling AD and his equally useless, sniveling masters.

    I think Gurley knows and understands that. I think that’s why he comes back, and why he loves Georgia. I think you’re right in that a lesser person would hold a grudge, so I’m thankful that he doesn’t. I just hate it when I see people talk about this and painting our school with a wide brush when it was a relatively small amount of assholes at B-M and the president’s office who rolled over and refused to support Gurley. The rest of us did support him, and while that support carried no weight with the NCAA, we can tell TG3 was and is grateful.

      I don’t think ‘compromise’ is the word you wanted there.

        No, it was supposed to be “comprise” and I can only guess my fat thumbs caused a misspelling and my iPhone’s autocorrect, which is never right, took it from there.

    Really can’t say it any better. Gurley probably reps UGA more often than I do, and that’s really saying something.

    Todd Gurley is as responsible as I am for making my 14 year old daughter a Dawgs fan. Of course we watch the games together, but kids have a funny way of deciding for themselves who they’ll root for. She took a liking to Gurley pretty early, to the point that she actually watched the NFL draft that year, she was hoping the Falcons would take him. Imagine that, an 8 year old watching the draft. He even responded to her on reddit during his draft day AMA, through my account. He is, and always will be, a DGD in my eyes. I know a lot of people feel the same way.


  5. Everybody saying Gurley is a dam good dawg, and I’m sitting there going, he plays for the falcons now? Lol.

    GATA Gurley

    We don’t deserve Todd Gurley.

    Totally agree he is treating the school much better than it treated him.

    My guess is TG3 has always felt the love of the Dawg Nation no matter where his travels took him. Welcome home DGD and in a Falcons uniform.
    It`s going to hard not to watch him play this year no matter my feelings regarding the NFL or the Falcons lack of drafting UGA players.

    Get you some this year Big Dawg!

    The word on the Vent from Dash and Radi was that the paltry sum published about what Gurley got paid was a tiny fraction of the total amount. Supposedly it was in the mid 5 figures as a total sum. I don’t blame Gurley, but apparently the NCAA knew the real figure and that’s why our AD rolled over.

    Also, it pains me to actually type anything in defense of McGarity.


  9. Spencer Hall got offered the “scoop” about the video showing him signing stuff and told the guy to go die. So Spencer Hall also fought harder for Gurley than UGA did.

    Agreed. I’ve long said I would have never played another snap for Georgia if I were Gurley after the administration dimes him out to the NCAA. Especially in the wake of guys like Johnny Mansfield and Jameis Winston being supported by their schools under similar circumstances.

    What Corch said above. Your connection to your school is the relationships you have with fellow students and mentors. Dickhead administrators? Animal House. Screw ’em.


  12. Todd is my favorite DGD. I’m not an NFL fan, but I hope TG3II has a big year in Atlanta.
