He reminds me a little bit of Tindall for us. His straight line speed when tracking a QB is elite.
Yep, he's absurd too.
What does UGA return next year?
Him and Phil Mathis, sometimes Jordan Battle. Felt bad Mathis got injured at the end, but luckily that was just upper body.
Outside of 31, obviously. Id love to know what Lanning was thinking on that evaluation.
Dallas Turner is going to sting. Filthy to have him and then Jihaad Campbell.
a lot on offense, not much on defense.
We could potentially return a lot on offense.
Basically only get Carter and Ringo back on defense because they can't leave yet
Turner and Anderson will be absolutely unstoppable next year for Bama. If y'all can find some WRs that can catch the ball, I don't know a team that can stay within 14 points of you next year.
Bama guys, correct me if I'm wrong, but is To'oto'o a little underwhelming?
I actually like our DL depth, its just raw.
Jalen Carter is a top 10 pick. Ingrahm-Dawkins + Brinson + Tymon + Walthour + Stackhouse.
Tindall would be smart to come back and play the Nakobe role if he wants to be a top draft pick. Quay Walker has too much freak film.
I dont buy Travon Walker returning now.
OLB/Edge maybe needs a portal add. MJ Sherman and maybe Sorey, plus the two 5 star frosh.
I definitely do not. That just seems like typical stupid shit from Rusty
DB room should be interesting.
Ringo needs a psychiatrist for confidence. Tykee coming back off ACL.
Lassiter + Bullard + Nyland Green all flashed at times. Really badass DB class incoming.
Likely need a portal safety (should be Major Burns spot) and maybe a portal CB.
And I'm excited for the younger guys at Lber like you said
Hopefully Arik is back next year. Same for Dom. Same for Ratledge. Kind of wonder if Pickens doesn't need to come back. I don't know if he has enough tape to leave
This pleases me
Shit I thought this was the UGA thread
He's not as good as he was at UT. He's a solid tackler and crazy athletic but he gets caught out of position a lot and doesn't have much finesse.
I just didn't see him much in the two games against us, which is rare for a starting ILB.
Seems like he calls their defense and prob would be better under a different DC if that's the direction Saban goes
Certainly early in the year, but like most of the defense, he improved as the year went on. He had a LOT of tackles for us and he seems to always find the ball. He also seemed to really grasp everything pre snap in a way that we haven't had from a middle linebacker in quite some time. I don't think Harris is capable of it and if we didn't have To'oto then I don't think we would have seen the same Harris last night in the way that he was flying around the ball.
He probably has a relatively low ceiling compared to some of the great linebackers we have had, but I would be really disappointed if To'oto wasn't back next year. We need him.
Oh, it most definitely is.
hard to tell if anyone will have a pulse for our regular season slate, most of the big games at home.
What do you attribute your defense getting better to? I do agree it seemed much improved from earlier in the year
I think Henry T played well down the stretch. Our entire defense tends to start off slow and get better over the course of the year with Golding . HT called the plays for the front 7 and thus much of the defense flowed through him. He doesn't have elite speed but he's athletic. He is a physical player and definitely had some big hits. He's no Reuben Foster, CJ Mosley, etc. but he's also better than several starting inside linebackers that we've had during the Saban era. We could do a lot worse for sure.
Same. So was #31 Poole
Which is wild because he's a senior who's first career start was in the SECC, where he got abused. His 3rd down breakup when we were up by 1 was probably the play of the game.
Congrats Georgia on the natty. Yall had an elite defense and some great pieces on offense. Kirby has put together one of the elite programs in CFB. Will be fun watching this match up in the future.
playing auburn, cincinnati, and stetson bennett...
This is the UGA thread
I get what you're saying here, but the SEC was full of dogshit qbs
man unless Tennessee or Florida really take the next step that seems super manageable for yall.
I think the biggest difference was not blowing assignments. So often early in the year we'd leave guys wide open, or just get fooled on really simple things. I'm not sure if it was guys understanding assignments or a simplification, but it was 100% mental.
Defense played poorly against Florida. Did not fit the run well, not gap sound, confused before the snap, etc. Communication , fitting the run, getting the play in to Henry T and then communicated pre snap, all improved. The tackling under Golding is historically poor early in the season and improves over the course of the season. Our safties had a rough start to the season. Hellams was not good early and even Battle didn't look great. Hellams would miss tackles and be completely out of position. They both improved over the course of the season.
Just have to get past Bo week 1
This too, our safeties looked like different players by the end of the season.
That Georgia schedule next year looks like a cake walk. The East is a joke outside of Georgia.
how does the pod system work? I remember reading about this several years ago when the conference expanded but have forgotten
The SEC Network has painted a picture for us and here is its proposed idea:
Pod A: Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina
Pod B: Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Vanderbilt
Pod C: LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Texas A&M
Pod D: Arkansas, Missouri, Texas, Oklahoma
Here’s the proposed 9-game conference schedule format:
Play the three teams in your pod every season
Play two games against each of the other pods
Host every team at least once every four seasons
This system would not only preserve each team’s arch-rival in pods, but it would also reunite some of the founding members of the Big 12. The winner of each pod would advance to the SEC semifinals.
yes count me in for this.
It is 100% what I want. It's insane how long you go between visits to opposing division's stadiums right now.
there needs to be better non-conference scheduling than the current decade-out system too
we thought Mario would be rocking with all his recruits for Oregon
we thought we'd be playing Lincoln Riley in 2023
no one knew Dabo would be so indignant about fair labor practices, so they are going to be on the downslope by 2024
would be tight if we could, say, get a rebuttal match at the Big House sooner than later.
(also doesnt help our biggest rival is on the cusp of dropping varsity Football, and the ACC is fine with it)
When he said "No penalty?", I felt that
You just got Word doc’d, fucker!
Just like this year. Georgia doesn't play anyone..
Georgia has a lot accomplishments to be proud of this year. Playing a murderous regular season is not one of them. I don't know why you'd be defensive about it. There have been years where we didn't play a really tough regular season and won the natty. Who gives a shit. You won the natty.
Not like you help that you're the only team in the east with a pulse
I'm just not sure our schedule was that bad this year. Kentucky and Arkansas really that much worse than Michigan? Didn't seem like it.
