Bulldog Bites: Washaun Ealey, receivers, UGA outlook

The Georgia High School Football Daily e-mail newsletter, cofounded by one of my former coworkers, Chip Saye, reports that running back Washaun Ealey passed a summer course at Emanuel County Institute last week, finishing his academic requirements to enroll at UGA. “He’s in,” ECI coach Milan Turner told GHSF Daily. You can contact the newsletter at ghsfdaily@bellsouth.net.

Bulldogs Blog’s David Hale had an interesting talk with senior Michael Moore about the returning players and incoming freshmen in Georgia’s receiving corps, including his own chances when opponents double-team A.J. Green. Asked what freshman tight end/receiver hybrid Orson Charles brings to the table, Moore says: “He’s a high motor guy. He always wants to know what to do. He wants to learn more, he runs well, he catches the ball well. I think he’s a better fit for tight end only because it will give him a better advantage. You can flex him out and he’s going to beat up a DB, but he’s better suited for tight end. He looks good.”

While on the subject of receivers, for a Bama fan spin on our discussion last week about how Julio Jones has managed to out-hype A.J., you can check out the RollBamaRoll blog. While taking a few shots at my “homerish” viewpoint (hey, it’s a UGA fan blog in case you hadn’t noticed), blogger “Todd” argues that Julio stole the spotlight because he was a higher profile recruit to start with, he was a bigger overall part of Bama’s offense last year (while Georgia also had MoMass, Matthew Stafford and Knowshon Moreno), the Tide had a better season than Georgia (can’t argue with that) and there’s more uncertainty in 2009 about Georgia’s offense. All valid points, but I think the fact that he’s part of a program that’s a traditional media favorite plays into it, too.

ESPN.com’s SEC blogger, Chris Low, devotes today’s installment of his Hope and Concern series to Georgia. Chief hope: the “depth, experience and versatility” of the offensive line. Biggest reason for concern: “Killer schedule.”

More uncertainty for UGA’s offense? IMO no UGA should have a much better OL, the QB is a 5th year Sr with starting experience. Moore is solid, AJ is very good, the RBs are not Moreno quality but solid. Bama has a new QB who I admit is heavily hyped and has looked good, a replacing starter OL and LT at that, and Coffee is gone. The argument could be made for either team, IMO UGA is in better shape.

The dawgs are gonna have a mammoth season. The defense will be greatly improved and the offense will be capable of either quick strikes or smash mouth football. I predict a 2 loss season, AND TECH IS NOT ONE OF THEM!

OH THANK GOD!!!! I thought wittle Washaun would have to hone his impressive intellectual abilities at a challenging institution like GMC or Hargrave before attempting to conquer the academic Olympus that is UGA. Please…this is news? Ealey played single A football, I believe. Not impressed.

Todd your a moron. Julio was ranked #1 coming out of HS. AJ was #2 ( not that much of ahigher profile recruit huh?); AJ has 56 catches for 963 ; Julio has 58 for 924. So despite competing with Mohammed Massaquoi; Knowshon and Stafford, he still exceeded Julio who was supposedly a bigger part of the Bama offense? I would say they hande dit to us, but they certainly can’t say they had a better season. Utah handed it to you in the Sugar Bowl. UTAH!!

You tech fans are funny. Enjoy hanging onto the memory of that 3 pt win while you can. I’m not sure what I’ll enjoy more this Thanksgiving, the great meal and time spent with family and friends or the look on the tech fans faces when they come crashing back down to reality after losing another game to the Dawgs!

Who helped Washaun cheat on that final exam to pass that class. I am sure he has some help. If has such a hard time in HIGH SCHOOL, how is going to hang around at the Great Univ. of Cow Town? I smell me some good old fashion cheating.

Maddawg55, Your an idiot. How can you say Ealey has no heart when his ankles were in terrible shape not to mention his back. He still had 3 TD’s in the game with 90yds rushing. Heart is what had him in there playing. He would not miss a game. Ask Clinch and Wilcox from the year before about a healthy Ealey. Go to youtube and type in his name and watch the him. then decide if he has heart.
