Though I’m sure the Vols will learn the right lesson from the punishment Jones doles out to Coleman Thomas.
… is Dawg recruiting porn.
Eason could be mentioned up there with the likes of Stafford, Murray and David Greene as one of the best quarterbacks of the Mark Richt era at Georgia. In fact, it is a safe bet. Furthermore, the Bulldogs are chasing an elusive National Championship (none since 1980) and you can see the pieces to their program talent-wise coming into place in other areas (like defense under coordinator and ace recruiter/evaluator Jeremy Pruitt). Having a guy with this much talent as your future signal caller is a huge piece to the puzzle moving forward for UGA.
He’s still got it.
So it turns out all that jovial, carefree shit only goes so far, even at Louisville.
I’m sure Grantham’s on the mother, though.
I have no idea who wins the starting quarterback job this season, but if it’s Jacob Park, prepare for a slight change of tone.
Jacob Park is an interesting Dog. There haven’t been many other Georgia quarterbacks I’ve covered the last decade or so who would refer to a reporter as “bro” when answering his question. There’s definitely a sort of hip-hop persona to this tall, athletic redshirt freshman from Goose Creek, S.C., complete with the resident brashness and confidence one might expect from a star entertainer.
If he makes it work, that’s fine. My only question for Towers is who were the other Georgia quarterbacks who called reporters “bro”?
If there’s a common thread the runs through Georgia quarterbacks in the Richt era, it’s how many of them had a tendency to get in trouble when they felt the pressure of having to do too much to carry the offense.
So maybe knowing there’s this really stout running game in place for 2015 will help keep whoever starts grounded.
“We are deep at running back. That takes a ton of pressure off of us. You don’t have to throw the ball. It might be a throwing situation like a third and five but you can give it to Nick Chubb, Sony Michel, Keith (Marshall) or Brendan (Douglas) or one of them and still probably pick up six yards,” he said. “So it’s a big thing. You have a ton of offensive linemen up there that make it easier on us, too. You’ve got some veterans out there. It just gives you more confidence when you’ve got people around you that have been doing it.”
Of course, hearing it from the coaches is a little different from knowing it. And knowing it is a helluva lot different from believing it. But it’s a start.
How credible can a piece suggesting that Florida can win the SEC East this season be when it doesn’t mention the Gators’ need to improve at defensive celebration?
