Bulldog buzz words: Pounding the rock, attacking, aggressive, versatile … party!

Washaun Ealey will get plenty of chances to "pound the rock" this season. Don't you love that kind of talk? (Curtis Compton / AJC)

Washaun Ealey will get plenty of chances to "pound the rock" this season. Don't you love that kind of talk? (Curtis Compton / AJC)

OK, countdown to kickoff of the season is 30 days, and the anticipation is building. Some quotes to get Dawg fans even more revved up:

“We’re definitely going to use them a lot this year. They’re going to get plenty, plenty, plenty of touches. If we have to pound the rock, we’re going to pound the rock. Our running backs are tough enough, and we’re going to be able to methodically march down the field.”

Quarterback Aaron Murray talking about how he’ll rely on tailbacks Caleb King and Washaun Ealey this season. For old-school Georgia football fans, this kind of talk is almost like porn.

“It feels great knowing that I’ve got just one assignment: to attack. It takes a lot of pressure off you knowing there’s one thing you’ve got to do and you can focus on that one thing and be great at it.”

Linebacker Justin Houston on his role in the 3-4 defense, in which he expects to rush the passer more than 50 percent of the time.

“It seems like it’s going to be a more aggressive D, and that’s something that we need here.”

Linebacker Darryl Gamble, sounding like he’d just watched some film from the Willie Martinez era.

“I don’t wanna give away too much of the game plan. But we’ll be pretty versatile. We’ll probably be more versatile than we’ve been in awhile.”

Mark Richt, talking about an offensive approach that Mike Bobo says likely will feature wrinkles like two-tight-end sets.

PARTY IN THE UGA

How good a sport is Richt? He even consented to a cameo role in a video spoof of Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA” that UGA orientation leaders did this summer. The clip has been drawing some online attention this week in the wake of the No. 1 party school announcement. If you haven’t seen it, be warned: It’s pretty silly and the singing won’t win anyone a role on “Glee.” But the incoming freshmen probably enjoyed it and Richt deserves kudos for going along with the fun.

LOL well I wouldn’t recommend that video but aside from that I’m excited about our team. The aggressive nature of our defense in itself should be better than last season and I expect our turnover ratio to be on the positive side this season. Murray’s right on when he says that they’re going to pound the rock and I mean why not? You have one of the best O-lines in the country, one of the best tailback tandems in the country, and the 2 best fullbacks in the country…go ahead and pound it at em’. I hope they rip defenses to shreds, literally. Beat them up.

Bill please take that link down for party in the USA. If they would have shown me that during my UGA orientation, I would have gotten up and immediately transferred. It is embarassing! That is NOT why we are the #1 party school.

Everyone knows I am a UGA insider on the blog by now……. So don’t be surprised when I tell you that the new UGA D will struggle week one against LT. That will be by design to not show all the new wrinkles we will have in place. However, UGA fans will be shocked when we go to Columbia and show how fast and athletic we really are. I predict either a shutout at Columbia or us giving up a max of 10 points. I also predict we knock Garcia and maybe his backup out of the game due to their poor O line. Folks…. there is talent everywhere and we finally have coaches who the players respect and will work hard for. I am really impressed with what I have seen so far.

Great list Dawg House except I have to disagree with you on one thing, you left off Carver-Columbus (should be ranked just ahead of PJs left man-boob), otherwise I pretty much agree with everything else.

Will, I will agree with you. People have written Georgia off after the willie virus almost took the ship down. We were headed to the top not Florida or Alabama until Richt allowed BVG to leave. We were physical and tough minded and will be again. The biggest problem of not recruiting OL in numbers was a major problem but no more under pressure from Searels Richt understands that importance now. We have talent equal or better than any team with acception of USC and Texas. If you don’t believe me check NFL stats on players in pro’s. UGA is number one in last 10 years in SEC….. The defense will get better everygame. I think SC is our true test. If we win that game look out. With addition of our new coaches, my bet is we beat Florida and are not out coached by anyone accept maybe Alabama with multiple ex pro coaches.

I am liking the energy of this team. I watched UF Spring game footage on Youtube. Those guys look great. They looked sharp, precise, and tough. UGA did not look that way to me in the Spring game. I do like what I am hearing, though. UF is not going to cake walk to Atlanta, playing Bama and LSU back to back and heading to Jax shortly there after, but they still have a solid team without Tebow. They are beatable, and Richt seems to be making the right choices… practicing in the heat, scheduling noon games, moving to 3-4 and tough running (notes from Saban?).

South Carolina is going to be a death match this year, and Arkansas will be a tough follow up to what will undoubtedly be a physical game.

Wonder if BooBoo will allow Ealey to become a great back this year; Or, will he yank him everytime he gets in a groove?! I understand the idea of rotating backs to keep them fresh, but wouldn’t it be nice to see Ealey put up monster #’s. IMO, he has the potential to be one of the tops backs in the country.

Glad to see the talk is about improving and getting better rather than “swagger.” Maybe they finally figured out that swagger doesn’t win games, execution does. The past couple of seasons there has been so much crap coming out of our players mouths, I was ready to go root for my other alma mater, FSU. Seems like they kind of figured out that you get to talk AFTER you win.

Here is hoping this year is somehow different. Seems like we always feel pretty good about ourselves till sometime after SC, or UT…or UF…Lets hope……
