Look, darlin’, Kelee Ringo.

Very quietly, Kelee Ringo is off to a good start.

One thing that has impressed me about his play so far is how fast he’s learning.  Against Clemson, he was called for a couple of pass interference penalties and looked a little raw, technique-wise.  Then, in the next game against UAB, he did this:

That’s pretty much picture perfect work there.

    After week one that is a very surprising stat. Thanks for sharing. Hopefully the front seven can continue to buy time for the backend to get comfortable working together. The downfield shots will become more common as the competition improves. It’s the only real option to beat this defense. If you want to run for yardage against Lanning’s wall it needs to be with a QB where you have an extra blocker otherwise throw deep and hope.

      When any thought of gains against the UGA front 7 get stymied and the opposition oc looks to throw against the UGA zero gain CB’s, their will to compete goes from happy to total darkness early and often…I say to them pick another sport or at least a different year…

  2. Ringo is going to be a star … and I don’t mean the position. The kid has skills and is going to make a lot of money in a couple of years if he keeps improving.

    I have been out of the loop for awhile. Does anyone know an eta for Tykee Smith returning to the secondary?

    Senator, nice Tombstone reference. I would follow with “apparently Kelee Ringo’s an educated man.”

      Love this movie and it has everything to do with Val Kilmer. Hands down his best role. Take him out of that movie and it’s just another movie.

        I saw it probably 5 times at the Alps Dollar theatre. (RIP). I agree 1000%. I still had some lingering dislike of Kilmer due to his antagonism of Maverick but he’s portrayal of Doc Holliday won me over.

            It is why you get the cool blue pants so the sailors will have something to look at when they aren’t swabbing and fighting imaginary fires.

              USMC dress blues are the sharpest uniforms without a doubt. You have a right to be proud to wear it.

              I was watching The Searchers recently and the scene with John Wayne and the Cavalry Lt reminded me of my wedding. My Grandmother and her sisters were eyeballing me.
              “Why, aren’t you handsome in your… blue suit.”
              “Turn around for us, honey. When did the yankee Army quit wearing that yellow stripe that went down the middle of the back?”
              They preferred the United States Marine Corps who they said comported themselves honorably in the late unpleasantness.
              I explained that the Rangers were similar to the Marines, but with better equipment and adult leadership.

                True story. I never wore the “Dress Blues.” When I was in boot camp you had to buy them and I didn’t. I did wear the pants with the blood stripe as part of some chicken shit dress-up day but I never had a pair of the Dress Blue uniforms. I was overseas my entire enlistment so the Marine Corps Ball was just a mandatory thing to see how drunk your superiors got and I always wore our issued Green Alphas because a) you had to have those for checking in to a new unit, b) they look cool as shit, c) you just wear your ribbons and don’t have to separate ribbons from medals, etc.
                As to the other part, I will agree to disagree and say that some of the best Army guys I met in Iraq were either tankers (because they didn’t treat their tanks like they were some kind of Faberge egg-like their Marine brethren ) and Rangers (due to their shared love of silkie shorts) and the S/F guys not under the umbrella of any of our three-letter acronym federal departments.

                  Siskey, those Green Alphas are sharp also. We had to buy Dress Blues along with all our uniforms. The Blues alone were $500 in ’84. That broke my young ass.
                  I’ll never admit to wearing silk shorts. I did wear real silk bootie socks with Vaseline rubbed in under Army green wool socks. I didn’t get blisters on my feet or a chafed package thanks to the silk and five years prior service and learning the hard way.

          Hell, I watched about half of the movie last night….again squared…Best line to me is “Why Johnny Ringo, you look like someone just walked over your grave.” (Flashing on Kelee Ringo talking to Mr. Jones in the near future.)

    I follow Kelee on Twitter because he is a very positive person, his mom rocks, and he is 100% Dawg. I hope his great attitude will take him far. GO DAWGS!

      I loved following him and his mom on Twitter. Kendall Milton’s dad Chris is a great follow also. I had to delete it because it is such a trash pile. I always ended up pissed after looking at it for a few minutes. I do miss the good people though.

        His Mom is ALL Dawg, follow her in Insta and she is great. He has been one of my favorite Dawgs since he committed. Has ever tool needed to be a top flight shut down corner with the right mind set as well.

    Ringo looks the part. Whatever happened to Stingley at LSU. He was hyped as the next Deion in 2019 and the only thing I’ve seen of him this year is making an Auburn vs Fournette like effort against the WR from UCLA.

    Not a shut down corner yet. But by the end of the year, they won’t even throw his way, taking away 1/4 to 1/2 of the field, depending on the play call.

    I suspect that the D secondary players that transferred observed Ringo and others of his talent were going to relegate them to third string and got out while they could.
