Bulldawg Rick. I agree, these kids should take their officials. Thing is though, they should have taken them before they committed. I use to get pissed off every time Bama or any other school would pull their offer. I no longer feel that way. The way I see it, is if a commitment is visiting another school, he ain’t really committed. Richt should feel no guilt what so ever if a better player offered to commit and he was to rescind his offer to the already so called, committed player. In other word’s, if the kid is still visiting, then UGA is no longer obligated to honor their offer to him.

T – I also agree with your perspective, but some kids do commit early (they seem to commit earlier & earlier every few years, or so it seems) and have a few official visits available to them. They go to other schools with their teammate or friend from another HS & enjoy the process. I hear ya on coaches might pull an offer if a committed recruit visits another school. But CMR is really above the table on that. FYI, these schollies are 1 year deals that are renewed yearly. Saban, Urine Myer, Lane Kitten and a few others will pull or resend a kids ride if he wants. CMR will not do that unless he dismisses the kid from the team. His motto is he signs the kid for a 4-year deal.. This might bite him in the butt, but he’s the best at molding Boyz to Men & Tough Love.

Now all the haters or peeps that have no clue will pile on & say, “why does UGA players get into so much trouble? Yatta Yatta Yatta”… The drug use enforcement in the SEC is NOT on a level playing field… At UGA the first offense you lose PT… At like AU or Ole Miss it’s the 4th time.. THis has been addressed in the past, I cannot remember all schools policies, but I believe Kentucky is the only other football program that docks a kid for a first offense, all the others are 2 – 4 times.. ANYWAY…..

Mountain – I have seen K Griffin play at Mill Creek.. He’s a beast on the field & a good kid off & would be another great DL for the Dawgs

Still no ANTHONY JENNINGS visiting UGA? The kid’s the best dual threat QB in America, grew up a DAWG fan, is a UGA legacy, and Richt and Booboo stand by and watch him go to LSU. This is soooo typical of those two. Commit the kid from Camden early, and then justify ignoring Jennings by saying “We’re only taking one Quarterback.” It doesn’t matter what Anthony does on the field(And believe me, he’s done plenty) Richt and Booboo have already decided. And they don’t want to give Jennings the opportunity to compete against Ramsey. They already know what that gets ‘em from the Elite 11 competition. This is so typical of UGA. The decision is not based on performance on the field. Y’all conveniently dicount what Anthony has done on the field this year.That doesn’t count. It’s based on Booboo’s personal preference. And of course Richt, being the wimp that he is, goes along with it. And we all know the basis of “South Georgia Mike’s” decision. If Jennings played in a Wing T offense and attempted 4 passes in his last game, Boobooo wouldn’t come near him. But it’s a different story with Ramsey ain’t it. Typical disgusting “GEORGIA WAY” that has no place in college football today. 32 years. You deserve it.

Tide roll let it go already, Brice Ramsey is the qb prospect for this class. Not taking anything from Jennings he may be a good player but he won’t be a Uga player. The question I have for you is since you claim you are a “Bama” fan why do care so much about who Uga is or isn’t recruiting? I know you don’t have the balls to answer my question but at least your obsession for 300lb 18yr olds has calmed down. You need a girlfriend asap

Am I mistaken or was CHANCE WARMACK named offensive lineman of the week? The kid attended WESTLAKE HIGH in Atlanta GEORGIA, his positon coach there was former UGA offensive lineman RESTY BEADLES, and Warmack ends up a 4-year starter for………ALABAMA! Do it Richt, do it Bobo, and DO IT DAWGS! He’s projected as a top 10 draft pick which, in this day and time, is unheard of for an offensive guard. He’ll go higher than the offensive tackle he played beside for 3 years. Seattle’s 1st round draft pick JAMES CARPENTER from………Hepzibah GEORGIA! Together, those two GEORGIA athletes formed the left side of Bama’s offensive line that led us to TWO NATIONAL TITLES! And Chance will probably get three! Thank you Richt. Thank you Booboo. And thank you DAWG NATION! It would be hilarious if it weren’t so pitiful. 32 years. No damn wonder!

Do it Dawgs. At least with Ramsey you DAWG fans finally have someone that Theus can beat in the 40. What a joke. The last time y’all won a National Title, Moby Dick was a minnow. and with Richt and Booboo driving the bus, along with your 5′11″ 260 lb. offensive center, don’t look for things to change soon. Hell, y’all obviously don’t care. It’s all about the tailgate. “Mildred. Will Roy done slaughtered a pig for the Vandy game. We gone have ourselves a big time up there in Athens. Might even catch a glimpse of the future homecoming queen, Honeybooboo. You think she’s any relation to Mike Booboo?”

TIDE ROLL, what is it to you, if you didn’t care, you wouldn’t be always in such a rant? Honeybooboo is the liberal media’s way of denigrating the great state of Georgia, who by the way has many beautiful women. I sat beside a young “lady” from the great state of Alabama at a Braves game last year and thought she looked decent until she opened her mouth and saw her brown teeth and I accidently stepped on her spit cup.

“Probably are related. Both from the same “neck of the woods” You want to win a National Title? Turn Jennings, hire his coach at Marietta, Scott Burton, as UGA’s quarterback coach to allow him to continue to develop the kid ( the sky’s the limit) and instruct Richt to fire Bobo (he’s killing you).. If Richt won’t do it, then fire him too. Move Chris Burnette to center,( before No. 61 gets someone killed!), groom Mike Thornton to play right guard,(he’s another Chance Warmack), bench Theus (before he gets someone killed), replace him with the best young tackle in the SEC, Xzavier Ward, and go get your rings. Otherwise, it’s more of the same. 9 wins, maybe 10, beat Indiana in a bowl game, and have Claude Felton try to spin it.

Tide Roll
Richt and Bobo know they can’t get Jennings and Ramsey but since they would prefer a pocket passer , Pro style offense Ramsey is more what they want. L.S.U or Georgia Tech uses Quarterback’s like Jennings, someone who can run and pass. Jennings doesn’t have half the arm Ramsey has.
I am surprised they ever sign Murray because he ran for nearly 1000 yards his senior year but when he got to Georgia they mainly use him to hand to Tailbacks or just pass the ball. You criticize Bobo and Richt for not wanting Jennings over Ramsey but it is just their preference. Ramsey is more like Stafford and if Bobo can develop him into a QB as good as Stafford Georgia will have a great leader as long as he stays at Georgia.
Quarterback’s like Jennings are a dime or dozen. Some are great like Newton and Tebow but most can’t play or stay healthy at the D1 level. Jennings is not a big man and may not may not be able to take the pounding he will get in the SEC.

Your grades for this blog- F’s as usual. Too much fictional writing in your posts, same old same old, and not doing a good job of posing as a Bama fan.

You should at least act disappointed that a talent such as Jennings passed on your “team” and went with their biggest divisional threat.

Your credentials for giving advice to Richt about football are just not there. As your tutor, my advice is to quit opening yourself up to ridicule on this board, and just read posts, not make them. You may eventually down the road make enough progress to venture into the blogging world, but you are far off right now. That is my professional opinion.

Do you think Tide Roll is a Bama fan, and are you okay with him representing the Tide on this board?

Are you aware of the insulting remarks he made about Coach Saban, wherein he claimed that in 2010, Saban was late getting into the recruiting of Cam Newton since he assumed Cam was a lock to UGA, thus implying Nick was lazy and not up to date on a future Heisman winner’s recruitment?

If you want to claim Tide Roll, welcome to him. Wonder how many Bama fans agree with that.

Not sold on Jennings. Athletic QB with running skills. Thrown TDs against suspect teams.
I could handle Burnette at center…only if he can make the correct reads at the line. More beef!!
Thornton on oline…havent seen him play on offense, so no comment.
But gotta give Theus more time. He’s done an okay job. Hopefully USCe doesnt line up Clowney on his side, cause it might spell trouble for the Dawgs.

“Not sold on Jennings” “Dogs prefer a pocket passer” “Jennings is not that big” This proves it. The whole Bulldog Nation is certfiable. Google “Anthony Jennings Marietta Quarterback”, and watch his Jr. tape. Newnan’s coach said after Jennings had over 350 yards offense against them two weeks ago, “IF THERE’S A BETTER QUARTERBACK THAN THIS KID IN THE STATE, WE DON’T WANT TO FACE HIM.” He’s 6′2″ 215lbs with a size 15 shoe.And he stayed in the pocket enough last week to complete 18 STRAIGHT passes. Despite all of this, I’m willing to bet that when Les Miles reads y’all’s comments, he’ll come off the kid. What a joke of a football program. What a joke of a fan base. 32 years and counting. What was it, 1980!? Moby Dick was a Minnow. Reagan defeats Carter. Jesse Owens wins the 100. Hitler was there watching. Damn people. You have every resource you need right here in the State of Georgia, yet, like Anthony Jennings and Cam Newton, you fools export it to your competition. Every one but UGA gets it. We’re all praying Richt doesn’t figure it out. Bobo has figured it out but fortunately for the rest of us, he wants no part of the players you have to have to get there, and the TAN MAN listens to the fool. So keep ‘em coming our way UGA! We appreciate it.
