Don’t let spring break stop the Dawg talk

georgia logoI know a lot of you are off this week because many schools are on spring break. I’m taking off the first half of the week, but the Blawg will return on Thursday as we get ready for the G-Day game at Sanford Stadium in Athens.

In the meantime, keep checking out those spring practice reports in Tim Tucker’s beat blog, and feel free to continue talking UGA sports right here.

Until Thursday …

Go Dogs!

I feel like the Brits in 1940 waiting on news from Dunkirk. Maybe the whole taxi thing is a false alarm.But we’ve already gotten terrible news which was apparently unrelated. I feel great about the O-Line and receivers (though thin in both departments) really good about the rb’s and am looking forward to depth chart news on these promising young qb’s. But we’re paper thing at olb and we’ve just been diminished in that department with the Montrez R. news. Any injurues or bad taxi news at that position and a safety will have to move over or a true frosh will have to step up.Hopefully things won’t play out as grim as I fear.We’re not alone. Alabama has real secondary issues now- a place they’ve been rock solid for two years-Coach Saban’s specialty.

…4 large, black, males in a taxi, are let off at East Village dorms after “allegedly” hitting a guy and his gal/wife – the 4 are alleged to be football players, but everybody wants to know “how” the “victims” knew they were football players…

Uh, don’t most football players live in this dorm?

Robinson was an athlete, but I think it is good that he is gone. A bad seed and it sends a message that CMR doesn’t take any crap just because he is a nice guy. Hopefully other potential trouble makers will take notice.

Good Point. Something does not make sense. Why has there been no more news about this incident. Speaking about the four guys.

While it is painful for any person to not realize what is being thrown away, maybe this will send a message to the rest of the team. Do not follow the rules and you are gone. Only if this had happen before where would things be today, at least not in the newspaper evey week about someone on the team doing something wrong.

If Richt doesn’t take “any crap” then he would have kicked Robinson off the team after the first incident.

Since Richt gave him a second chance, it’s obvious that Richt didn’t deal with the problem to the extent that he should have. Even if dealing with it meant kicking him off the team after the first incident.

kicking montez off the team, richt is sending the message. i applaud him for giving him a 2nd chance but if you mess that up, bye bye, your off the team. not to mention, wasn’t montez beating up his girl? in any case, he needs to get his butt kicked. we should be fine in the LB dept..you can always move nick williams back to LB from Safety.

What up Dawg fans? Your baseball team gave us a tough series in the first two games. Ya’ll beat us pretty good in the second game, but then we had to take care of business in the rubber match. Even though your record isn’t good now, that team will be good. Its mostly all fresh and sophs. You guys were just in the CWS in ‘08, but lost a lot of talent from that team like Beckham. As for my Tigers, we lost Schimpf, Mitchell, Ochinko, and Lamahieu, but we just keep reloading, and are ready to make another run to OMAHA! Geaux LSU Tigers!!!

Just a humble opinion ……….when we recruit in far away places like Indiana, you do not get to hear the “skinny” on the kid. In other words, if a kid is from Thomasville or Hahira, you know that there are tons and tons of elders in town that can relate the real truth to the potential school about him.

Is he a decent, humble hard working kid with a real gpa and from a solid, southern high school or is he speciman looking to just play and sign in three years with the NFL with a lousy, selfish attitude ………….then if so, the school can make a hard decision ro move on.

Go Dogs.

superDawg agree 100% CMR gave the young man a second chance and spelled out the things he needed to do..he didn’t follow those rules and now he is gone. CMR couldn’t have been fairer than that.

Even if it were uga players that did that (taxi incident), how can anyone prove it happened or who it was? That stuff happens all the time in inner-cities, the police have bigger fish to fry. Let it go, and move on.

Next!!!, you post sounds like you wouldn’t of signed Stafford or Moreno. What part of the country has 0 to do with what he turns out like. With the culture we have today 99% of all great players will turn pro after their 3rd year if they think they will be drafted in the top 3 rounds.

I believe Richt did the right thing. We should not have players who display a track record of poor character. That young man should stay in school at Georgia and make it his priority to develop some maturity. His main goal should not be football, but regaining a good name. It can be done with God’s help. Maybe then Richt would give him a second chance in a year or two. Remember the player from Oregon vs. Boise State who was reinstated at the end of the year?

Montez has been trouble, this doesn’t shock me.

I have a hard time believing football team members would act like that. If anyone can see past color, it should be the football team. They breath, bleed, and sweat together.

Common Sense, It’s people like you that are the major cause of the problem. Kick all 4 of the team period. Dooley had control. Where is it now? UGA is the laughing stock of the entire nation. You have more arrest that wins each and every year. Last year was it more wins or more DUIs?

“UGA is the laughing stock of the entire nation”…care to back that up Gator lover?

There is no proof at all at this point that athletes were involved. The “oh, I think they are football players because they are big, black, and in Athens” line is not enough to start talking ish about UGA and the control of the athletics department. I find it very hard to believe that the police report is an accurate depiction of what happened. If it is and it turns out football players were involved, then the perpetrators should and will be punished accordingly.

Until then, everyone just needs to shut the hell up.

Also, about time saint simons found SOMETHING to be happy about. Being a GT football fan was fun while it lasted, huh? (About 12.1 months) Time to get back to being a hater.

Yes Carolina sock puppet, the Gators’ players are basically the Platonic form of virtuous young men…never has there ever been an arrest in Gainesville. Urban Meyer recruits purely on moral merit.

Wasn’t the reason it was said they were football players because the cab driver dropped them off at the Athletic Dorm?

Droopy, was just saying that something like this is not unheard of. In athens, probably rare, but I am only assuming. I doubt athens PD has any investigaters on the case, no one was hurt. Prbably just some one that would like to tarnish the Dawgs, imo.

I’m only aware of 1 DUI (the time lapse btw is that I am not sitting here waiting with bated breath for you reply) but who cares? How many DUIs for the Gator? And how many heart attacks for each team’s coach last year? Or, at least, fake-crybaby-we-lost-the-SEC-so-now-I’m-going-to-the-hospital-before-having-a-temper-tantrum-and-quitting-…-not-really attacks for each coach?

DroopyDawg,

No point arguing w/a child. Even though the Gators have dominated the series w/our Dawgs for the past 20 years now, the mere fact that sooooo many obnoxious lizard lovers post daily on UGA blogs/articles tells us all we need to know. All the little boys & girls that wear Tebow pajamas are obsessed w/the Dawgs as they should be seeing how UGA will continue to be their biggest threat to SEC East supremacy both this coming year and for many years to follow. They also know that we still own the all-time series & that’s not gonna change anytime soon. Just tell that boy you’ll see him in Jacksonville!

We may be thin at OLB right now, but a few of the defensive end recruits coming this summer are projected to start out at LB if they are not redshirted. I thing the position will be just fine.

Montez R. is just another example of how you “NEVER KNOW” when it comes to recruiting. If I remember correctly MR was a 4-star recruit & we beat out Alabama & Auburn (think he was considered an Auburn lean for quite a while) for his services. Hopefully this young man can learn from his mistakes and will find success in both academics & football at another university.
