Who’s most dangerous player Dogs will face?

Georgia’s defense, particularly the more inexperienced members of its secondary, will face a stiff challenge in some of the more heralded offensive stars they’ll come up against this season.

Besides Tim Tebow, who will be the Dogs defense's biggest challenge?

View Results

Loading ... Loading ...
There’s Florida’s Tim Tebow, of course.

But first the Dogs must try to contain Oklahoma State’s high-scoring tandem of quarterback Zac Robinson and receiver Dez Bryant. Also early in the season, a lot of folks are picking the Arkansas game as a potential loss for the Dogs thanks to their quarterback transfer from Michigan, Ryan Mallett. Then there’s LSU’s powerful offense, led by rising QB Jordan Jefferson. And the Dogs are well aware of the big-play potential of Georgia Tech’s triple-option attack with Jonathan Dwyer.

We’ll say it’s a given that Tebow, who’s trying for his second Heisman, is the biggest threat the Dogs defense faces. But besides him, which opposing offensive player do you think will be the most dangerous that Willie Martinez’s unit must handle? Feel free to comment, vote in the poll or both.

Yeah, man. Dez is way crazy. He’s going to be like blehhhhhhhh! Of course it will be because he hasn’t been hit like he will be hit by UGA.

Good Morning to all,
I don’t normally post during the day but I’ve posted the following below at night and nobody seems to give me a straight answer so here goes again.
Again, if you’re a tech “fan” and want to only come on here and hate on UGA as opposed to actually discussing CFB in a civil manner please answer some of the questions below
When was the last time Tech won their conference? UGA?
When was the last time Tech went to a BCS bowl? UGA?
When was the last time Tech won a major bowl game? (By major I mean the Rose, Fiesta, Sugar, Orange or pre BCS Cotton, to save u some time 1990 does not count since it was the Citrus)
What’s the series record?
How many times has CMR beaten Tech in a row before last year? What about if we include FSU?
How many times has each team finished in the top ten of ANY poll this decade?
What’s the winning percentage of each team this decade?
If you pull for Tech and want to hate on UGA, what personal ties do you have with the actual school.
ACC questions since they’re so underrated and the SEC is so overrated
How many at large BCS bids has each conference received?
How many BCS bowls has each conference won? Compare the ACC’s total BCS wins to UGA’s alone or Mark Richt’s alone.
How many BCS championships has the each conference won?
I know you’ve said time and again how Tech and the ACC are awesome and UGA and the SEC are overrated so I’m sure the correct answers to the questions above will support your argument
For the record I was accepted to Tech and UGA and graduated magna cum laude. I personally know several Tech grads and true fans. They are smart classy people that I respect and admire, or in short nothing like 90% of the Tech posters on here.
It’s really strange how guys like G&G, M, and yellow fuzz never seem to answer these questions. Strange.

Looks like UGAgrad08 has some issues he is attempting to address! LOL

One victory be his rival and he writes a book about how UGA used to be better. Is that not the same thing Tech fans have used against UGA fans for years. I was in doubt that Tech had truly turned the corner in this battle with their in state foe…but if UGA fans are concerned enough to rant the way UGAgrad08 felt compelled…then I guess Tech has certainly closed the gap.

Go Buckeyes!

Don’t forget that while Jonathan Dwyer was running for nearly 9 yards a carry last year at sanford % son stadium at the cesspool in athens, Roddy Jones averaged 14.7 yards a carry.

This year Tech is adding R-Jr. Anthony Allen, who is a Louisville transfer who set the all time rushing record at Louisville in his freshman and sophomore seasons.

These three are going to run through ugag’s secondary like knife cutting through warm butter. They are going to tear ugag a new one.

45-42…glad it STILL hurts so bad…and it is only the Beginning.

Thanks to God and Greyhound, ugag’s favorite Tech coach is gone forever. You pitiful pups are missing chan gomer gailey already.

There is a new sheriff in town…and his #1 mission is to kick ugag’s sorry arses on a yearly basis…so far so good. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

I’m tired of fans on here asking about who we’ve beaten? My question is who has UGA beaten? I’ll tell you who …. MICHIGAN STATE. That’s it!!! That’s the only team your preseason #1 team beat last year that finished in the final Top 25 poll. And they finished at #24 !!! Big friggin’ deal.

Zac and Dez are going to go crazy on that pitiful defense of yours. OSU 45 – UGA 17.

Being a UGA grad and die hard fan it kills me to have to say Paul Johnson is our biggest threat to defend. Alot of UGA fans are in denial expecting Tech to lose another 7 in a row. But Paul Johnson isn’t Chan Gailey. This is a different situation. Tech will continue to beat us like O’Leary’s teams did. Hopefully Johnson won’t stick around long, but while he’s hear I think we’re in trouble against Tech. Johnson has won everywhere he’s been and already turned Tech around in 1 year. I just hope Martinez gets these guys to tackle this year or it’s gonna be a long year.

Please UGA 92, I agree that Paul Johnson is an upgrade from Chan Gailey but just because he’s been successful at other programs is not necessarily a barometer of future success. With the exception of Auburn, most programs don’t hire head coaches with a history of losing.

Why don’t we give up football at UGA……Everyone’s worries about WHO we CAN’T beat every year, EVERY game, and ALL Richt does is win 80 % of his games. Best Record in the SEC last 8 years. Good Lord, What has this man got to do to let the world know that 80 % of teams that line up against him and his Dawgs will…….LOSE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111 GEEZ !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You left off an obvious choice on the list……….Eric Berry! He will shut down any deep threat the Puppies might have. I cannot forget the “bell ringer” he put on NoShow last year. NoShow did not know where he was when Mr. Berry laid him out. Look for more of the same….and look for a beatdown in Knoxville Pup fans! Gooo Vols!!

No worries against Ok State–the Dawg’s D will shut down their overrated offense, get a few picks, and win easy. Dawgs 37 ok st 20

The dawgs only tough games this year are florida and lsu. Tech’s not going to be that good. Ga beats them by 20–mark it down.

Tim Tebow is a great college football player. The story ends there. He will not be a factor in the NFL unless he tries out for the cheerleading squad somewhere. There is no demand for jump passing QBs with no speed.

Cool cowboy, how about LSU, how about ASU, how about every team on schedule, year in and year out. How about your team a couple of years ago, how about 90% of the teams which we play we beat 2 out of 3 times. Regrets that we don’t get to play Baylor, SMU and A&M, but if you check back you will see that we beat them when we played them. You can add Texas to that list also. In about 10 days all this banter will be done, and the teams will settle it on the field.

Most feared, Penn Wagers is the right answer.

Buzz, you are the one on the UGA blog, maybe you should look at Monster and get real job. How are things down there at the 7-11. You and your pervert professor hitting on children there too? I heard that they were having to cut back at globe union tickets, they gave up a contract with the middle ga baseball team for Tech, and now they are losing money becuase they can’t sell any tickets. By the way, that picture of you picking your nose ( on you tube) shows everyone that your class ring is not from Tech, but from Stephenson High. What a drip bag you are

Dez Bryant did look super studly when I watched him some last year. Who knows about the rest, but Ok State is the first opponent and Dawgs have a lot to prove. Bryant won’t be able to do his thing if the Dawgs get pressure though, and I think they’ll do a better job than last year. The defense is due to do some damage. Owens and Atkins are beasts in the middle, and nobody probably realizes how much playing without Owens hurt the Dawgs when their line was thin in playmakers last year.

You UGA rednecks are so stupid that its funny. Girly-Man Stafford and NoShow are gone. What you have left is an over-rated, over-hyped bunch of sissies calling themselves football players. If you all would get off the PBR and Slim Jims long enough to sober up, you would realize that UGA sucks. Tennessee will flog the Pups in Knoxville this year. Fat Phil had lost the fire….but Kiffin and Company have stoked the furnace. UT will kick UGA’s azz so hard in Knoxville that even the rednecks in South Georgia will be able to feel it. Vols win by double-digits easily. Stock up on the PBR and Slim Jims rednecks…gonna be a long season. Richt will flee to Florida State as soon as Bowden hangs it up which might be after this year.
