QB Christian LeMay selects Georgia Bulldogs (updated)

Pineville, N.C. – With Ray Charles‘ famous ballad “Georgia” playing in the background, Christian LeMay announced that he intends to become a Bulldog.

The Matthews, N.C., quarterback chose the Georgia Bulldogs over a final three that included Clemson and Texas A&M. Notre Dame and Auburn were among the final five of about 35 major-college offers.

“Every time I went there I just felt good about it,” said Butler, who visited UGA at least five times since last summer. “It was also the fact that every time I went there and left I couldn’t get it off my mind. I was constantly thinking about it and how I fit there, how Coach Richt is. Me and him share the same personal beliefs. But also competing at the top level and trying to be successful in our Christian walk as well as on the football field.”

LeMay pointed out to the standing-room-only crowd that he was wearing an orange shirt andasked how many Clemson Tigers there were “in the house.” A few folks clapped and he laughed before pulling out a Butler Bulldogs hat. Then the music was cued as he pulled out the Georgia cap and put it on to hardy applause. The Butler High School cheerleaders followed the announcement with a UGA cheer.

LeMay (6-3, 200) made the announcement before a standing-room only crowd of 200 or so at the Champion Christian Center, the church pastored by his father, The Rev. Stacy LeMay.

“He could have made this announcement anywhere but he wanted to do it in the house of God,” the elder LeMay said.

LeMay is the No. 2-ranked quarterback in America, according to Scout.com, the only recruiting service to rank rising seniors so far. He is a pro-style quarterback and put up some eye-popping numbers as a junior at Butler High.

LeMay  completed 68.5 percent of his passes for 3,296 yards and 44 touchdowns and only two interceptions while leading Butler to an undefeated season and the Class 4A state championship in North Carolina.

One person that has seen LeMay a lot is Tom Luginbill, national recruiting director for ESPN. He’s covered two of his games and analyzed hours of video on LeMay.

“The most attractive trait that LeMay possesses is one you cannot coach and that is a lightning quick, ultra smooth delivery,” Luginbill told me. “He can get rid of the ball so quickly and he is extremely accurate. He possesses just adequate height, but he is well built and there is plenty of room for frame development. He could play any scheme; he’s not just a spread guy.”

LeMay said he plans to take an active role in Georgia’s recruiting.

“First off, I’m looking for the quarterback’s best friend, the ‘Big Pretties,’” LeMay said, referring to offensive linemen. “I don’t like to call them the ‘Big Uglies;’ I heard they don’t like that. So we need to get some linemen, of course, and get some receivers. Hopefully we’ll get [wide receiver] Charone Peake [of Roebuck, S.C. ], that’s a guy I really like and we have a good relationship. So hopefully he’ll come with me. I’d really love to play with him and have him to throw to.

“I’m really excited about another player, Christian Conley, him being another Christian as well, literally in name and also in his faith. I think is a great thing that two boys like us will be there playing football together.”

Conley, a wide receiver from North Paulding High, has already committed to Georgia . Along with LeMay that gives the Bulldogs’ seven commitments for the 2011 class.

LeMay explained his philosophy of naming a “leader” rather than calling it a “verbal commitment.”

“The word commitment has become kind of watered-down in recent years because so many people change their minds and de-commit and coaches leave like they did at Tennessee and USC,” LeMay said. “But it still holds a lot of value for me. So my announcement today means Georgia is the school I plan to enroll in unless something drastic happens. Unless Coach Richt or Coach Bobo is gone or something crazy like that, I’m a Georgia Bulldog.”

Hey Florida fans…great artcle in The Sporting News about how 75% of your Gator team in 2006 were smoking pot during the season and Urban Meyer knew it and chose to look the other way….. What a phoney Meyer is….always has been. Remember when being UP for the game was kind of a spiritual thing?……The whole Florida program is a sham and being led by a pompous self promoting idiot. The only reason most of your coaches stayed around the past four years is because of Charlie Strong…they all bailed out as soon as Strong left. Nobody can stand Meyer because he takes credit for everybody elses hard work. Its going to be a long year in Gainesville this season. I can’t wait for Meyer to start pointing fingers and crying.

All you critics of CMR need to take heed. The reason this talented kid is comming to UGA is because of CMR’s christian charater and he is known for his experiance with offence, and especially working with quarterbacks. Good choice for the young man.

Collegeballfan,

You said that QB was far from being the most important position on the field. That’s a joke. Last year, JC showed how important the position was. He helped us tremendously in the wins against SC and Ark but was the big reason that we lost to Kentucky and Tennessee.

I think a few years from now we can look at the 2009 season as the turning point in UGA football. In 1969 and 1970, Alabama had back to back 6-5 seasons and AL was ready to fire the bear. Like all great coaches, he changed and installed a new offense and then went of to win 3 more NC’S. I believe that the lessons learned from 2009 will propel us to be a much better team.

I love how he just assumes he will be the starting QB. I mean I like his confidence and all but he better hope Aaron Murray doesn’t have a good season. Richt has a history of sticking with the incumbent no matter how poorly he plays…Maybe thats why he left himself an out in case “something crazy happens.”

I think the Dawgs are going to be a serious threat for a NC in another 3 to 4 years if the class continues to get the caliber of players we are currently seeing jumping on board. Lots of good things happening between the hedges in the future as I see. I am really excited to see these guys come in and contribute. Welcome Christian! Good luck your senior season. Stay healthy.

You love Bobo and Richt’s offense ?

What the frig is that ATL XMAN ?

The offense that for the last 4 years has averaged 21 fumbles a year.

The offense that for the last 4 years has averaged 14 interceptions a year.

The offense that for the last 4 years has averaged # 96 in Penalties every year.

The offense that has LOST to 5 SEC East non-Top 25 Final AP Poll teams last 4 yrs

The offense that calls running plays on 3rd and long

The offense that cannot figure out to make Washaun Ealey Starting TB

The offense that ripped his redshirt off in the 3rd quarter of the 5th game

The offense that redshirted Knowshon so we got to see him only 2 years

The offense that took until game 12 last year to start Orson Charles

The offense that threw Branden Smith 2 passes all season long

The offense that threw Marlon Brown 2 passes all season long.

The offense when we were ranked # 1 gave Knowshon Moreno the ball an average 14 times a game in the 3 LOSSES against Alabama 31 to nothing, Florida 42 to nothing and Georgia tek 29 UNANSWERED points

The offense with an Offensive Coordinator whom Coach Richt DEMOTED 2 weeks ago, taking it over himself.

The offense whose Offensive Coordinator was stolen away from Jacksonville State where he was only THEIR Quarterbacks’ coach.

The offense whose Running Backs’ Coach played wide receiver for us.

The offense whose Wide Receivers’ Coach was a great running back

The offense whose Tight Ends’ Coach was a Quarterback

The offense who took Matthew Stafford and let him fumble and throw interceptions for 52 total in his career here, the same number as the number of his Touchdown Passes

The offense who gave our Leading Running Back only 2 starts last year and those not even the last 2 games

The offense who determined that Joe Tereshinski III was the # 1 Starter in 2006 with Joe Cox the # 2 back-up and Matthew Stafford # 3 to start that season on the Depth Chart.

Hey, if Coach Richt’s Offensive Coaching Staff is so freaking great, then why did Coach Richt say that he Coach Richt was TAKING ALL THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES AWAY FROM THEM 2 weeks ago ?

Why is it that Coach Richt recruited this kid himself here ?

Maybe what Christian LeMay means by his Quote is that if Aaron Murray is established as the only QB who is going to play this year, that he is not joining us next year. It IS what this offensive coaching staff has done, not preparing the next Quarterback to be ready 2006, 2009 and now again in 2010.

“if Lemay thinks bobo”

“must be doing something right”

END QUOTES

What does THAT mean ATL XMAN ?

That you DON’T KNOW what it is, but it MUST BE RIGHT ?

If you knew what Mike Bobo was doing right, you would have said it.

You said, instead, that “HE MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT.”

You did NOT say what it is Mike Bobo is doing right, only that he “MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT.”

Which I guess explains why Coach Richt DEMOTED Mike Bobo 2 weeks ago in this newspaper, taking over ALL THOSE RESPONSIBILITIES and then INSTANTLY thereafter, goes out and signs the best quarterback in the United States.

Great to hear that LeMay wants to be a bulldog along with Connoley. But, does anyone else find the production somewhat repulsive. I mean these players still have a year of high school left, and they are gathering 200 people to do the hat switch and talk about recruiting other players? I just think the recruiting thing has gotten out of hand when Juniors are getting this much attention. Of course, no offense to LeMay. He is just doing what is expected of him.

BullDawg,

Losing 14 games in the last 4 years is 3.5 losses a year. You are simply wrong in your negative outlook. 100s of teams would love to have that record. Other schools do have these problems.

END B.S. QUOTE

Well, chazzo, you and I have read each others’ posts for many years here and elsewhere, and there are NOT hundreds of teams who would love to have our record the last 4 years of 10-10 not a winning record in our own division of our own conference let alone be relevant on the national stage 0 of the 9 years of the Coach Richt Era having NEVER beat a Top 10 Final AP Poll team in any bowl game and in fact having only beat 3 Top 10 Final AP Poll teams in the Coach Richt Era while having LOST 8. As for the other schools who have these problems, go ahead, name me a team with 4 Arrests / Suspensions since Spring Practice Started, name me a team with 3 kicked off their team since just Spring Practice Started, go ahead and name me a team with the 38 Arrests / Suspensions that David Hale of the macon.com just researched for you here at UGA in just the last 3 years.

I will wait for that response, while I point out we are 9th in The SEC in latest NCAA Football Graduation Rates, have lost to 5 SEC East teams the last 4 years who none of the 5 teams are Top 25 Final AP Poll teams.

Here is where we are in the last 4 years :

1-A Wins 2006-2009 (4 years)

1. Boise State 49
2. Florida 48
3. Texas 45
4. Ohio State 44

Which ones of these programs has had more than 94 Arrested / Suspended in the 9-Year Coach Richt Era ?

Go ahead make up your excuses.

There aren’t any and we are # 19 in the last 4 years.

We are IRRELEVANT.

So, now you run in here and tell us all that you Recruiting is over the top. Excuse me chazzo, that is the only way you get players.

I hope Coach Richt keeps ruinning QB’s. I mean look how bad David Greene was, D.J. Shockley was and how bad Stafford was. And Joe Cox was just in a situation where it took the Dawgs to get some type of identity of what kind of team they were going and be. If Ealey doesn’t enter his elbow and had played earlier the Dawgs year would have been different. Like I said Bulldawg earlier, you sound like the kid that always played for his daddy, or your daddy was always blasting coaches because you weren’t playing. Are you a MSU Bulldawg, I know you are not a UGA fan. Man you need to quit being so negative and get a life. Sure everybody would like to win NCS and hopefully UGA will compete for the SEC title.

patrick M Sulley

Hey BuLLdawg. Here is an accurate WHOLE record. Nothing like the pick and choose stats you use..

under Richt

He is 24-7 against the SEC West.

He is 28-16 against the SEC East.

He is 38-4 against nonconference opponents.

He is 8-1 against Georgia Tech.

He won four of his first five games against Tennessee, but has lost three of the last four against the Vols since then.

He was born the same year as Chuck D of Public Enemy.

Ranks third in winning percentage among active college coaches that have coached for at least five years, now that Pete Carroll left USC for the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks.

He is 90-27, trailing only Urban Meyer (96-18) and Bob Stoops (117-29).\\yeah he is pretty damn good

Mark Richt is one of only six coaches to win two SEC football championships in their first five years coaching. He is also one of only five head coaches in SEC history to record four straight 10-win seasons

Coach Richt’s Red and Black outfits have never posted a losing record in conference play and six of his last eight squads have finished 6-2 or better in regular-season SEC contests.

Mark Richt’s overall success in Southeastern Conference action—including two SEC titles, three conference championship game appearances, and four finishes of no worse than tied for first place in the East, with no losing records in the process—is without parallel in Georgia football history.

Ere anyone attempts to argue that Coach Richt’s superb out-of-conference ledger is the product of schedules stacked with the likes of

Northwestern State,

Western Kentucky,

Tennessee Tech, and

Hawaii in the 2008 Sugar Bowl,

I should hasten to point out that he is 21-4 against

Arizona State,

Boise State,

Boston College,

Clemson,

Colorado,

Florida State,

Georgia Tech,

Michigan State,

Oklahoma State,

Purdue,

Texas A&M,

Virginia Tech,

West Virginia, and

Wisconsin.

Even if we factor out Division I-AA teams, Sun Belt squads, and similar schedule fodder, Coach Richt is .840 against teams from automatic BCS-qualifying conferences other than the SEC. (Yes, I’m going ahead and counting the Broncos in that category because the Mountain West will get a guaranteed bid as soon as Boise State is invited to join.)

There are those in Bulldog Nation who would like to see Mark Richt run out of town on a rail. Such people should be turned over to the custody of Mike Leach, in the hope that he will treat their obvious head trauma the way he treated Adam James’s

In terms of “BuLLdawgs” comments, I say thank you. Thank you for your dedication and daily concern for UGA.
.
This guy wakes up every day thinking about UGA.
.
That is so funny to me.
.
What is more amazing to me is that you are only here in hopes of getting attention.
.
that is pathetic.
.
That obsessive behavior indicates just how superior you view UGA.

.
You attempt to distract people from the topic at hand.
.
Suggestion for “BuLLdawg” who blogs on a daily basis about UGA:

.
“Please Notice Me” would be a better name.
.
That would be a very fitting name because of your desperate need to get members of the CFB family to notice you.
.
Before you refute that statement, ask yourself why you are not blogging on any other subject at any other time except about UGA.
.
You are so unoriginal and pathetic you will probably copy and paste that comment and subtly change the content to make it appear as your own work.

BuLLDawg,

Not that has anything to do with the article at hand or what I posted.

But: There is only one other SEC ahead of UGA, and the majority of these schools haven’t played in conferences with ample and equivalent, serious foes. I mean of course USC is ranked up there. How many Pac-10 teams have been in contention for the BCS in the last ten years? One? How many SEC teams? Five… if you include UGA. I don’t. So, four. What other conference has had four different teams play for the crystal? That’s UGAs competition, and, by the way, we whipped the snot out of #1 on your list.

You are simply wrong. Go back into your troll hole, and dig up more worthless stats.

You want to talk about Coach Richt’s SEC games.

So, too, does chazzo.

4-4 vs SEC 2009.
4-4 vs SEC 2006.

Doesn’t have a Losing Record at UGA vs SEC teams any year ?

Those are not winning records against The SEC and are 2 of the last 4 years.

9-0 Alabama vs SEC 2009
8-1 Alabama vs SEC 2008.

9-0 Auburn vs SEC 2004
7-1 Auburn vs SEC 2005.

8-1 Florida vs SEC 2009
8-1 Florida vs SEC 2008
8-1 Florida vs SEC 2006.

8-1 LSU vs SEC 2003.

8-1 UGA vs SEC 2002, eight (8) years ago.

7-1 Ole Miss vs SEC 2003.

10 different SEC teams have gone through The SEC with 1-Loss or Less.

1 is Coach Richt.

That was 8 years ago, now this season.

By the way, this is not statistics :

Here is where we are in the last 4 years :

1-A Wins 2006-2009 (4 years)

1. Boise State 49
2. Florida 48
3. Texas 45
4. Ohio State 44
5. Brigham Young 43
6. Southern Cal 43
7. Oklahoma 42

12. Penn State 40
13. Utah 40
14. West Virginia 40
15. Boston College 38

We are Number 19 in wins the last 4 years.

vs SEC East teams the last years were are :

1-3 vs Florida
1-3 vs vols
2-2 vs Kentucky
3-1 vs South Carolina
3-1 vs Vanderbilt

THIS also is NOT a winning record the last 4 years in our own division of our own conference.

Therefore, UGA is NOT RELEVANT on the NATIONAL STAGE having NEVER beat a Top 10 Final AP Poll team in any bowl game.

3-8 overall Coach Richt Era vs Top 10 Final AP Poll teams David Greene beat # 4 Final AP Poll vols 2001, DJ Shockley beat # 6 Final AP Poll LSU for SEC Championship 2005, Matthew Stafford beat # 9 Final AP Poll Auburn. Coach Richt LOST the other 8 games vs Top 10 Final AP Poll teams.

We have NOT EVEN BEEN to The SEC Championship Game since 2005. This is 2010.

The last 4 National Championships have all 4 been by SEC teams. That is MY point. Coach Richt knocked the LID OFF THIS PROGRAM in 2001 when he beat # 4 vols with Verron Haynes wide open in the checkerboard end zone at Neyland Stadium; how is that knocking the LID OFF THIS PROGRAM when the SAME YEAR 2001 he LOST to South Carolina, Florida, Auburn and to Boston College ?

David Greene LOST 3 of 4 vs Florida including 2002 when he was 0-13 on 3rd down conversions.
Matthew Stafford LOST 2 of 3 vs Florida including his last year 49-10 yanked without TD.
Joe Tereshinski III who would be named Starter # 1 Depth Chart 2006, LOST in 2005 to Florida.
Joe Cox LOST to Florida last year 2009 by 41-17.
2-7 vs Florida.

2 National Championships as a DIRECT RESULT by Florida.
2 National Championships as a DIRECT RESULT by LSU.
2 National Championships as a DIRECT RESULT by Nick Saban.

We cannot get out of our own Division of our own Conference, let alone beat Top 10 Final AP Poll team in any bowl game.

2008 he LOST to Georgia tek with Knowshon Moreno and Matthew Stafford, without the win tek would have been 8-5 and NOT RANKED in the Final AP Poll Top 25.

One. 2009 he LOST to Oklahoma State playing Joe Cox with the flu and his chronic sore arm, with the win over UGA Okie State STILL WAS NOT RANKED in the Final AP Poll Top 25.

2009 he LOST to LSU who would have been 8-5 without the win, with the win LSU still beat NO Top 25 Final AP Poll team; but they beat us.

Two. 2009 he LOST to the vols 45-19 a 7-6 vols’ team who would have been 6-7 without the win over us a losing record, with the win over us the vols STILL WERE NOT RANKED in the Top 25 of the Final AP Poll.

Three. 2009 he LOST to Kentucky a 7-6 team who would have been 6-7 without the win over us a losing record, with the win over us Kentucky STILL WERE NOT RANKED in the Top 25 of the Final AP Poll.

Four. 2007 he LOST to South Carolina a 6-6 team who did not even play in a bowl game, without the win over us a losing record, with the win over us USC STILL WERE NOT RANKED in the Top 25 of the Final AP Poll.

2007 he LOST to the vols 14-35 with Knowshon Moreno and Matthew Stafford. Starting 2002 the vols have NOT been ranked ahead of UGA any year in the Final AP Poll Top 25 but he has LOST to the vols HALF THE GAMES. Not 1 year has he beat both the vols and Florida. We cannot get out of our own division of our own conference.

2006 he LOST to the vols 51-33.

Five. 2006 he LOST to 4-8 Vanderbilt at HOME. 4-8 with the win over us and STILL YET ANOTHER NOT TOP 25 FINAL AP POLL team who beat us. 8 of these and none worse than this one. This one in a string the last 4 years of 5 CONSECUTIVE LOSSES vs SEC East teams. EVERY SEC EAST TEAM in a ROW beat Coach Richt in the last 4 years.

Six. 2006 he LOST to Kentucky an 8-5 team with the win over us and with the win NOT RANKED Top 25 Final AP Poll, and without the win 7-6 the same as they were last year when they ALSO BEAT US.

2003 he LOST to Florida an 8-5 team with the win over us and with the win RANKED Number 24 Top 25 Final AP Poll, and without the win 7-6 yet even this crappy Florida team beat us to run their record to 7-2 over us with 2 National Championships the last 4 years. Florida would NOT have been ranked in the Top 25 Final AP Poll without the win over us.

Seven. 2002 he LOST to Florida an 8-5 team with the win over us and with the win NOT RANKED Top 25 Final AP Poll, and without the win 7-6 yet even again this crappy Florida team beat us, holding David Greene to 0 of 13 on 3rd Down Conversions including the awful overthrow of Terrence Edwards wide open over the middle for the winning touchdown and for the National Championship. This game stands out. The very worst Florida team of the Coach Richt Era. How in the living hell did we go 0 for 13 on 3rd Down Conversions to have you come yelping in here that we were UNLUCKY against an UNRANKED should have been 7-6 team.

Eight. 2001 he LOST to a 7-5 Auburn team who with the win was NOT RANKED in the Top 25 Final AP Poll. Without the win over us Auburn would have not had a winning record at 6-6 just as UGA has NOT HAD A WINNING RECORD 2 of the last 4 years vs SEC teams at 4-4 in 2006 and 4-4 last year 2009, failing to have a QB ready in 2006 and 2009. Now, we don’t have a QB ready again 2010. And, we have accomplished this throwing 3 men off the team since just the Start of Spring Practice, 38 over the last 3 years Arrested / Suspended according to David Hale of macon.com and 94 I have the URL Links for Arrested / Suspended in the Coach Richt Era including 2 of the last 4 kicked off the team in the last 2 weeks for beating up a girl and accosting a girl – 1 ranked Top 10 QB in the nation and the other also ranked in the Top 10 at his position, two 4-Star Top Recruits. So, now Coach Richt announces that he has fired his entire defensive staff except the recruiting coordinator DT coach, all the special teams’ coaches, and is taking OVER ENTIRELY the offense from those misfits all coaching positions they themselves NEVER PLAYED.

8 teams NOT Top 25 Final AP Poll teams have beat Coach Richt in his 1st nine years.

8.

It is NOT the BEST TEAMS in The SEC that have beat him that has prevented him from actually being what you ascribe to him anyway, although it is quite clear that they too have beat him 8 of the 11 games Coach Richt has played against Top 10 Final AP Poll teams, but these 8 LOSSES to NOT TOP 25 Final AP Poll teams who have prevented him from being what you say he is anyway with obviously a LOUSY COACHING STAFF Coach Richt “assembled” here for 9 years now. So a recruit who can change all this says keep Mike Bobo and I will come there, maybe. So, keep him. But, 14 interceptions a year for 4 years, 21 fumbles a year for 4 years, and # 96 in Penalties for 4 years, I would have FIRED Mike Bobo before now. So, too, would have Coach Richt, or he would NOT have taken away ALL HIS RESPONSIBILITIES to do that and to NOT LOSE TO 8 teams NOT RANKED Top 25 Final AP Poll already in 9 years.

So, BuLLdawg,

What do you think of Chris LeMay?

Sounds good for UGA. Young man is an excellent player with natural talent. I would like to see our recruiting dip into the SoGa area more than in previous classes. That would further strengthen the core of this class and bring a sec and nc into the realm of possibility. GO DAWGS!

Congrats Christian – good luck over the next year as you prepare to be a Dawg. Now go get some other Dawgs for us too.

BuLLdawg – Way to go Sherlock – you pointed out that UGA has slumped a little recently.

Richt does deserve to be on a warm seat, but he’s done enough right that the most impatient fans need not be the ones that dictate his future quite yet. If the team is directionless in 2010, even with a new defensive staff, then yes, it’s time to really look at who else is out there. I was pretty open-minded about looking for even a new head coach at times last year, but the storm has passed for me at this time, and I wish Richt well and really hope it works out. I frankly would hate to have to hire a Meyer or Saban to win an NC if we can do it with a little less ego.

Hmmmm...

I have a bad feeling about this one. There is just too much of a show going on and too much wiggle room in his comments when signing day nears. We will be better off without him when he backs out of his “leader”, which he will.

chazzo, I already answered that Question about what I think of Christian LeMay.

I also already now answered your B.S. pure B.S. about Coach Richt vs The SEC the last 4 years. It sucks.

AceDawg, Sherlock, I already said that we “UGA HAS SLUMPED A LITTLE BIT RECENTLY” yeah like this is the 5th Consecutive Year, now this season.

I do NOT cotton to NOT A WINNING RECORD VS. THE SEC TWO OF THE LAST 4 YEARS.

NOT.

I do not cotton to playing 11 games vs Top 10 Final AP Poll in the Coach Richt Era and having won only 3.

I do not cotton to have LOST 8 GAMES vs NOT Top 25 Final AP Poll teams in the Coach Richt Era.

I do not cotton to have 4 years in a row and counting of average 14 interceptions, 21 fumbles & # 96 in NCAA Penalties all 4 of the last 4 years.

I especially do not cotton to have LOST 5 SEC East Games in a row, every single SEC team in the last 4 years.

I especially do not cotton to have a 10-10 Record the last 4 years in The SEC East.

I do not cotton to 2-7 vs Florida the entire Coach Richt Era.

I do not cotton to 38 Arrests / Suspensions the last 3 years alone in the Coach Richt Era as spelled out plainly by David Hale of macon.com last week.

I most especially don’t cotton to a Top 10 in the nation Quarterback and a Top 10 in the nation defensive player both in the last week being kicked off the team for accosting little girls, college girls.

I do not cotton to being 9th in The SEC in Football Graduation Rates in the latest 2010 NCAA Graduation Report.

I do not cotton to the entire coaching staff of Coach Richt for all 9 years of the Coach Richt Era.

I especially do not cotton to having Joe Tereshinski III # 1 on the Depth Chart to begin 2006 with Joe Cox # 2 and Matthew Stafford # 3, to having Orson Charles NOT START last year until the 12th game, to ripping the Redshirt off Washaun Ealey in the 3rd Quarter of the 5th game having him then go ahead anyway and LEAD THE BULLDOGS in RUSHING but having only 2 Starts and not even the last 2 games, and to having us throw the football only 2 times to Branden Smith and only 2 times to Marlon Brown, and then to follow-up all that B.S. on personnel decisions, with us getting NONE of the Offensive All-Stars in THIS STATE of Georgia in Recruiting for the 2010 Signing Class.

Yeah, we’ve slumped a little recently all right, letting The SEC East take us to the cleaners since 2005.

This is 2010.

Any updates on the proposed 30 day school suspension for Christian LeMay? My understanding is that he may miss half of the regular season. Also, can this hurt his academic standing?
