Morgan named All-American

Derrick Morgan picked up another honor today when he was named to American Football Coaches Association All-American team.

Morgan, a junior, has 12.5 sacks this season.

He is the fifth Jacket to pick up All-American honors the past five seasons. Can you name the previous four?

the ignorance is truly laffable(except it’s really pettiness-the ball went up the middle a lot after our DT went down, hope he’s better Sat.;i’m sure Derrick will cry all the way to the bank, as pro scouts, who are more objective will be spared the pathetic drivel of the blah-blah-blaghs-i think uga did a good job, once they finally tried a scheme more suited to their, & the opponents, talent-after all, how many daugblaugers wondered why they did not keep running the ball at OSU when it was so effective the first drive? would they have won more than 7 if they had kept running all year?or can their backs only run in their home state?if you’re happy with 7, we got rid of a coach & ad that were…Derrick is a great kid, who played a lot of downs without much help, but these classles diatribes against people who are reall just kis shows how in tht US today,you can follow sports without sportsmanship-i never failed to give Stafford his due…

And UGA and Clemson...

Good point juvenal…where were you and those opinions for the last YEAR when your lunatic fringe like Pi$$ on a dog, m=idiot, Ramble On, yellow fuzz, GT forever and all the rest that were on EVERY UGA blog EVERY day for a year denegrating EVERY UGA player and all things UGA?

Where were you?

Your silence WAS and IS deafening…..To this point you have recieved 5 days of the same in return!
Rest assured there is much more to come…IF you cant take it…then dont dish it out!

don’t blog that often, not that fond of my own opinion as some on these thing, + do have a job…asked the above group several times to not be so boring, & am very happy that they aregone, every cloud has a silver lining-try to be factual, civil, funny–you don’t bother me bit, got over worse things(esp. the ones that involved lawyers!)good game(for a change), Merry Christmas, hope m & st.s put on spam filter..seeyou in athens next year, Lord willing,nobody in my food chain above me can torque about a game, & i won’t give anyone who enjoys the suffering of others the satifaction, just gonna triple my AT(if we beat CU again, i’m avoiding SC in a vehicle with GT stuff, tired of getting stopped by the Troopers over their the years we win)gotta go now, catching a plane to Tampa GO JACKETS!!!(have to admit, for religious reasons, dontdo that thwg thing, dont want anybody to go there….)

Derrick Morgan, just like Dwyer on the offensive side of the ball, was a non-factor in the state championship game. Big Ben Jones & co. were pancaking Morgan and his line all night long while King and Ealey ran UNTOUCHED for yet another TOUCHDOWN GEORGIA!

30-24, WE RUN THIS STATE!

LizDawg, I see you are still in denial that you are bragging about a team that wins by playing dirty football. Loser.

LizDawg …. I’ll bet that D Morgan did not get pancaked one time on Sat., and J.Dwyer, while totalling far less yards than Ealey, scored more TDs than Ealey.
Eat another creme-puff, fatty. I’ll bet you beat your dog, La-hoo-serrr…lo-zer.

All American? Wasn’t Morgan the one Ealey and King used as a doormat before they strolled into the endzone?

If Katie Couric can land the prime time news desk by laying on her back, then I guess it makes sense for Morgan to win All American the same way
