Six 2022 signees are putting the early in early enrollee by joining the Dawgs for bowl practice. They are:

I know it’s unlikely, but are any of these kids allowed to play in the bowl game? Not sure what the eligibility rules are around this.
No, I don’t believe they are eligible because in theory, they aren’t academically eligible.
I don’t doubt you’re right, but how are there any less eligible then an incoming freshman in the fall semester?
Maybe it’s because there was no break in season?
We’re still in the 2021 season. That’s the only reason I say that.
I think the issue is that their scholarships don’t count against the 85-scholarship limit until fall practice begins and/or they aren’t necessarily cleared for eligibility until that happens. Something along those lines.
They are not taking classes now. and will not be taking classes until the spring semester starts January 10th. A player has to be an actual student taking classes in order to play

I think you are right. But if they are enrolled effective Jan 10 and the championship game is Jan 10 (assuming UGA makes it that far) could they be used then? I’m not sure either way.
At first I thought the one name was “Malarki Starks”. I’m kind of wishing it was. Ha.
Thank you. I needed that laugh.
We all need a laugh man. I’m glad I could deliver…. I guess I need to finally admit I need reading glasses, though!
This is a little off topic Senator, but just wanted your early thoughts on Stockton taking on Vandergriff for the future QB? Everyone assumes Brock the “Rock” is the next big thing but looking at Stockton’s senior numbers!…whoa! This kid was unbelievable; 55 TDs and one INT…..ONE! He might make a run at the starting job. What do you think?
That’s what the spring game is for.
Spring game QBR is what dreams are made of. At least for Barners.
IF that list is accurate, it appears no Gunner in spring game.
He could still start classes at the start of the Spring semester.
Spring semester starts January 10th for your reference.
WHAT!…no QBR consternation from the UGA football spring time event, we want a Gunner on that fence, we need a Gunner on that fence…
Honestly, no idea.
Then again, I’m still waiting to see who starts in the CFP for UGA. 😉

It really is unbelievable that there is argument over who the starting QB should be in the national semifinals. THAT has become the GA way it seems.
Don’t count anybody out at this point. It’s becoming more obvious that the the coaches can’t figure out who can play from what happens in practice. Case in point is Dewan Mathis. It is obvious that they way this works is that the guy who gets to rep with the 1’s looks the best and pretty much can’t be dislodged unless there is an injury. I say that to say that If Carson Beck stays he probably remains ahead of the two 5* guys and likely is our next starter (2013 barring injury to Bennett.)
Is it correct to assume the newbies don’t travel to the bowl games? In other words, are the practices limited to campus? Or are they essentially on the team, but can’t play in the game(s).
Anyone know when season ticket holders who applied for National Championship tix will find out if we got them through UGAAA?
