P.M. Roundup: Safety in numbers for UGA?

A few things you might want to check out before heading home. …

Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald looks beyond this season and figures the Dogs might need help at safety since projected starter Bryan Evans is a senior and junior Reshad Jones already has flirted with jumping to the NFL early. With little proven depth at the position, Weiszer says Jakar Hamilton, currently at Georgia Military College, could be the answer. Hamilton, an NJCAA All-American and a finalist for defensive player of the year at that level, told Scout.com that he’s choosing between Georgia and Alabama and hopes to announce his decision on or around July 11. …

John Pennington defends his Mark Richt “hot seat” piece at MrSEC.com that I wrote about yesterday. Georgia fans apparently have been bombarding him with e-mails. …

T. Kyle King of Dawg Sports makes his case for UGA investing more in its baseball program than it does in basketball, despite the fact that its mediocre basketball team produces much more revenue than its very successful baseball team. …

And the Red & Black’s football blog has run across some truly bizarre Lane Kiffin YouTube spoofs apparently concocted by a UGA fan.

Mark Richt will continue to have strong support from the Bulldog Nation until he decides to give one of his sons an assistant coaching job. Let’s hope that day never comes, because that move got Bobby Bowden, Lou Holtz, etc. in a whole lotta hot water.

hurting at safety in terms of depth–like B. Evans back there

i thought comming sanders really looked good this spring so hopefully a playmaker emerges-the knox transfer hurts

question i have is who is going to cover this guy from OSU Sept 5th

One thing I noticed in Jakar’s blog about Richt being in the hot seat was his mention of fans and MEDIA complaining about Richt’s whining. I wonder where he heard that? I will say this, I did not hear Richt whining, the whine that I heard came FROM the media and “fans” that want a MNC and want it now! He mentioned that Tubbs was fired, which is not true, at least from what one of my Auburn friends told me. Tubbs resigned, due to another booster going behind his back. That is why AU paid Tubbs his severence package. What did that booster accomplish? Well, IMO, Tubbs is more than a good coach, he is a good man. Tubbs cleaned up the mess that Pat Dye left and got the AU program back on track. I fail to see how losing a quality individual like that helps any program. His problem was the difficulty in recruiting against Richt and Meyer, compounded by Saban locking up the talent in the state of Alabama. I think Tubbs saw the writing on the wall and took the first out. AU needs a coach that can do more with less, but hejj, Tubbs did that! I really think Auburn needs to get their boosters under control, at least the maverics that go behind the coach’s and the AD’s back. Now AU has someone that hasn’t been that impressive trying to put that team back together. Is that where we want to be at UGA? Some UGA fans have short memories, like going without a SEC championship for 20 years. BTW, if the new Auburn coach doesn’t work out, if I were they I would go after CPJ, hard!

I heard people talking this morning about a supposed Facebook entry made by Marlon Brown to potential recruits. Anyone else heard anything about this? Very scary stuff if true.

To sell advertising.

If it were to sell advertising maybe one or twogood articles both linked off the main sports page at the same time and a healthy conversation after would help the page views go up. But no we get 3-4 articles a day with half being like this one. Just a thought.

I know there is safety in numbers at Tech. If you travel in a group of twenty or larger there is only a fifty percent chance of getting mugged.
