More bad news for wide receivers (updated)

(Updated Wednesday night)

For the sixth consecutive game, Georgia won’t have its full corps of wide receivers available Saturday against Tennessee.

Sophomore Marlon Brown won’t play because of a shoulder injury suffered during Georgia’s practice on Monday, coach Mark Richt said Wednesday.

That continues a string of bad news for the Bulldogs’ wide receivers.

Georgia played the first four games of the season without A.J. Green, who was suspended by the NCAA for selling his Independence Bowl jersey, and the fifth game without Kris Durham, who was sidelined with what he called a stretched nerve in his neck. Also, Tavarres King missed the first game because of a suspension for an underage-possession-of-alcohol arrest.

Durham has said he hopes and plans to play against Tennessee Saturday, but he practiced in a green non-contact jersey Tuesday and Wednesday. Richt said after Wednesday’s practice that Durham’s chances of playing Saturday are 50-50.

Brown has caught seven passes for 92 yards this season. In last week’s 29-27 loss at Colorado, he caught the first touchdown pass of his UGA career.

We’ve got like 77 tight ends to throw to don’t we ? I think we’ve thrown their way….3 maybe 4 times in 5 games…We’ll be fine………Besides, Carlton Thomas off right tackle is our go to play anyway…any down or yardage….a real crowd favorite.

You know whatmakes Georgia Tech fans more upset than anything (besides their team sucking as well)….

…is the fact that they are seeing more UGA flags, banners, shirts, jackets and hats than ever before. Dawg Nation doesn’t just jump ship when things don’t go as planned, like they are about to do when they lose 3 in a row in a few weeks.

Sorry Techies, DAwg Nation will always trump you guys. Through good times and bad.

Guess that is the downside to full contact Mondays. Defense might learn how to tackle but we hurt our skill players. Hmmm.

Sanford Drive, sorry to bust your bubble but I have only seen a few rusting G tags in South Georgia since about the second week in September. The G banners and flying flags have basically disappeared. Down here we see Florida stuff and guess who is number two? No, not Tech, but Auburn. Of course, if you hurry to Cracker Barrell, there is still time to get yours.

That’s why the game is ANOTHER sellout in Athens this weekend.

That would be 92,000+ for the Tech folks on here.

UT returned tickets and they are almost gone.

Yeah, we have really jumped ship.

I’m driving 400 miles one way to go.

Who cares…we only have two wideout sets anyway. Mike “telegraph the playcall” Bobo has no creativity. How bout some more third and long playactions bobo….or maybe just throw it deep on first down, run it up the gut for no gain on second, and play third and long all day with a freshman QB. What a joke.

This doesn’t matter, because we have no chance against Tennessee with Richt at the helm.
There’s not an SEC team outside of course our big Eastern rival Florida he does a worse job against.

I can’t help it. Still a Richt fan. I don’t want to end up with a situation like Tennessee has at the moment, although long term Tenn will be ok with Dooley. Cmon dawg fans, hang in their. Better times are coming.

Just something else to use as an excuse I guess. No worries though! Richt is gonna lead the team on the field and that will give them the spark they need to beat Tenn! That’s just what we needed all along, was just a little motivation. Maybe we can try to change our uniforms around next week to give us a real edge.

Its funny how you uGAY pups constantly talk about Tech, but yet you always claim that we are “irrelevant” in the state. Why don’t yall concentrate on your own 1-5 season and getting yourself better. Or better yet…how bout you ignorant idiots concentrate on the character issues that have plagued your school for decades now. UF, LSU, BAMA, UGA all get Top 10 recruits EVERY YEAR. Out of those four, UGA is the only one who consistently fails miserably, the others however have won multiple national championships.

Instead of talking about Tech all the time, why dont you idiots work on yourselves, or maybe just for starters…beat SOMEONE in your conference. Your right, Tech does suck this year, but at least we can squeak out a win in our division. And don’t go talking about schedules, YALL HAVE PLAYED NOBODY except USC. Miss State lost to Jacksonville State, Colorado sucks, YOU GUYS SUCK. Do you pups realize the only win you have this season is against LOUISIANA LAFAYETTE?

I’d be keeping my mouth shut about anyone else’s team right about now and concentrate on the pitiful season you are having and how to get it better. You UGAY dawgs are a complete embarrassment to the state of Georgia with your #1 party school status that you are so ignorantly proud of. What you fail to realize is the party school status, along with the red panties, and the countless arrests, are what is keeping your football team in the dumps.

The fact is, you have NO RIGHT to talk about ANYONE with an 0-4 record in your conference, how dare you. That is just another example of the character of UGA as a school, sports organization, and fan base, ALL IGNORANT. If Tech was 1-5 right now and 0-4 in our conference, I wouldn’t be saying anything to ANYONE about their team.

One more thing……I can’t wait to see ya’ll at Sanford Stadium this year where once again the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will be leaving the field with branches of your pathetic hedges between our teeth for the 2nd time in 3 years. We suck but yall blow a FAT one, Tech wins this year in Athens to shut the worthless ignorant pups up for good and to cap off the most pathetic season, for the most pathetic people, and most pathetic excuse for a University in years.

Move Orson Charles to outside(Big body will help) and insert Figgins at tight end-That is of course if Bobo agree’s with that move. We must play all our talent. Go five wide-put Carlton Thomas in the slot.

Sir, Jacksonville State beat Ole Miss, who is at the basement bottom of the SEC power rankings…. not Mississppi State, who should have beaten #8 Auburn if not for a dropped pass.

Anyway, thanks for spending time on the UGA blog, and letting us prove that Tech is the scared little JV team in the State.

What hurts you guys worse anyway? Losing to UGA when they are having a good season, or still losing to UGA when they are a bit down?? Both happen so much that you should have an answer.

Now go back to Blake’s on the Park where you can get free wi-fi in order to obsess over all things coming out of Athens, Ga

He’s too soft and that’s what best describes this team…SOFT!! Cam Newton,Greg Reid are real deal hands down football players.. And we let them get away from us?

MFM. i have a whole lot of things ‘marked down’ for this season. including:
-winning the east
-being in the MNC hunt
-’GATA’ defense swarming to the ball
-best RB duo in the country
-best, most experienced O-line in the country
-beating arkansas
-beating USCe
-beating Miss St. (lolz)
-beating Colorado (lolz)

i can ‘mark it down’ that you will beat Tn if you want, but this is turning into a pretty depressing list for dawg (sic) fans.

Lets play that game real quick with Georgia Tech’s 2 losses…….

Georgia Tech lost to Kansas who lost to North Dakota State, and Southern Miss, and Baylor.

Georgia Tech also lost to North Carolina State who lost to Virginia Tech who lost to JAMES MADISON??….

@ Sanford Drive…..

Must be pretty damn embarrassing losing to a JV team huh?… almost as embarrassed as the state of Georgia is of UGA and its cohorts.

And I hope your looking forward to getting beat by this JV team AGAIN this year at home for the second time in a row between the hedges. Its funny because none of you can address any of the real comments I made about UGA and why they can’t succedd. All you can come back with is, ” little scared JV team” or “we will still beat you on a down year”..

Grow the hell up with you “i know you are but what am i” dumb comments and come back with some real facts about why you guys suck so much..

Did I say ignorant….well let me say it again, you and your whole team/school/fan base is freaking IGNORANT. And thats why this “JV Techie” will be your (or one of your fellow uGAY comrad’s) boss one day. Shine my shoes, deliver me a pizza, I might need some plumbing done too… thanks guys
