If there is any doubt about his hammy, then you gotta sit him.

Yall need him more against SC than Boise, for sure.

Samuels has been recovering for awhile, noncontact etc. I think he’ll be good to go, they’re kust being cautious with him in practice and rightly so. I can’t wait to see him with Big Bruce out in front blocking… mixing it up with Muuray’s air attack (and scrambling ability) and Crowell’s finesse running. C’mon Saturday!!!!

Samuel will be there playing and ga will get pressure on kellin moore and win the game 31-17.

Feel good about our chance to get constant pressure. Hoping for a repeat of when Hawaii came in overconfident feeling they could play with anybody, and a battered Colt Brennan saying we’ve just never seen that kind of speed before. GATA!!!!!!

Interesting chance for Grantham to make a statement.

Could also show up Bobo-Having one side of the ball playing winning ball and the other side not.

We have got to run the ball for about 125 + yards in order to win the game. no running game and murray is running for his life.

We also can’t let Martin get more than 100 yards either. gotta make them one dimensional

i think it’s gonna be close.

I hafta agree with “1eyedJack” on that! From what I’ve heard coming out of the dawgs’ camp,is that our defense is clicking on ALL CYLINDERS!! Everybody now “gets it”, and I can not wait!! Jones and ‘Tree have the gang barking with confidence! Could this be?…maybe?… Junkyard Dawgs 2.0?

Richt seems confident by the interviews I’ve seen. He seems like he just knows something that us fans just don’t have a clue about. I think he likes where we’re at and apparently everybody is focused and ready to play ball. I just hope he runs the rock a lot against Boise because they won’t be able to withstand it all 4 quarters. They may make plays in the 1st and 2nd quarters, but if we’re ahead in the 4th, just run it down their throats.

Samuel will be ready and that’s 240 pounds of muscle and fast body coming at a defense. He’s also got tons of speed. People look at his weight and think he’s just a bruiser but he can split a defense as well and bust a big one. So we’ll have to see how it pans out. He scares me with the fumbles, but I have confidence in both Samuel, and Crowell to get the job done. Malcome might even break a few runs. We might have a 3-headed TB position mid-season.

Boise St. is a myth. They are much better than they were in 2005, but I expect the same result, a UGA win. Maybe not 48-13, but UGA wins by 2 TDs. And if UGA does not beat Boise, go ahead and issue Richt his walking papers. If UGA is the program it is suppose to be, then they have no business losing to a WAC/Mountain West team!

Once again nothing finer is on a UGA blog. I think he’s scared of UGA and what they’ve got going on. He sees that we’re a brand new team, with a brand new attitude and it worries him. I bet he doesn’t go to Florida blogs, I bet he doesn’t go to Kentucky blogs, I bet he doesn’t go to Vandy blogs or any other team in the SEC. I bet he stays on a UGA blog more than he does his own team.

I think he’s a GT fan btw.

Athens dog, the Ga vs SC game is one of my favorites of the year.

I come here to mix it up with yall to make it more exciting.

I am sorry you can’t handle the heat.

Gotcha Spanky.

I predict that Ga handles Boise and wins 27-10.

Next week will be a different story though ;)

Nothing Finer, oh yeah it scares me sooo much that you predict SC will just blow us out considering they never have before. Our games are always close. Always. We’ll see in a week just how good SC can handle the hype and coming off a 9-5 season, I just don’t understand it.

Never said SC will blow the dogs out.

Everyone that follows these teams knows its usually close.

I do believe that SC has better talent and coaching this year and will beat Ga in Athens.

I can remember when UGA beat SC in back to back years though. In the 2008 season we beat you in your house, and then in 2009 we beat you in Athens.

SC gets all the hype about winning the East, national title, and what not but what have they done to earn that right? They’re now all of a sudden the kings of the SEC East? Give me a break. Even the SC fans must understand that they’re not THAT good. They went 9-5 losing their last two games and one of them 56-17 in the SEC championship game. That’s saying a lot. Now they get all the hype and are expected to take the SEC East by storm and no team has a chance to unseat them all because of their usual 5 loss season.

Richt wasn’t even here in 2000 buddy. His first season was 2001! So SC has NEVER beaten us back to back under Richt.

Not sure what to tell you, Athens dog.

When you got studs like Lattimore and Jeffery, people jump on your bandwagon.

Well when you have “studs” like Lattimore and Jeffrey, you don’t lose SEC championship games 56-17. Maybe Garcia was drunk?

Auburn was really good last year, obviously.

SC will be improved all around this year with experience and talent.

Lock of the year, Boise covers and wins going away. It’s tough to win when Boise has the best QB, head coach and offensive coordinator, and BTW Rivals just ranked the top 20 offensive coordinators
in the country and Bobo was no where to be found. The Sec did have 3 of the top four in the country, with Tenn. coming in at # 18.

Richt gets out coached again and can only hope Boise self distrucks.

Well Nasty Dog, you predicted the same score I have, except I predict BSU 31, UGA 17. I hope I am wrong and you are right. But I am just not sold on this “much improved defense” as of yet. Everyone seems to be basing this on Bama’s year 2 under Saban and the drastic improvement. I believe your scheme (3/4 vs 4/3) is not as important as your execution. From what I saw last year the scheme was adequate. Guys were in position to make plays (most of the time). The execution, however, was a different story. For example, Lattimore ran for 182 yards on us last year. How many would he have had had someone wrapped him up and tackled him? We had him in the backfield or on the corner and guys would grab air most of the time. Against Arky we could not cover anybody and Mallet lit us up. What I am saying is knowing what to do and then being able to do it are two different things. Until I see this defense swarm to the ball, stuff the runner in the hole, and cover a receiver like a blanket, I believe we will see more of the same. Once again, I hope I am wrong and I hope this defense dominates. But I look for BSU to dump off those short passes to some very gifted athletes, hit us with a bunch of misdirection to compensate for the speed, and our guys to be so amped up we over-run the play and they bust a big one. Hopefully our O can run the ball and control the clock. That is the only way I see a UGA win. Once again, I hope I am wrong. For those of you who will question my loyalty to the DAWGS, I have been closely associated with them since 1966. I am neither an optimist nor a pessimist, I am a realist. I do look for us to be better than last year, the schedule should help with that. But I don’t think we are ready for the SEC East Championship or anything much better than maybe 8 and 4. Once again, I hope I am dead wrong and these young pups surprise the heck out of me. Maybe I should go ask Mark May if the D will be able to get to Moore. I believe he said that UGA had no shot against Hawaii and Colt Brennen, would not touch him, and would lose by a wide margin. If I remember correctly Brennen was sacked 8 times and did not finish the game. While I do not want to see Moore, or any player for that matter hurt, I do hope he sees most of the game from his backside. GO DAWGS!!!

If UGA loses to Boise and both Boise and UGA win out, does Boise play for the MNC?

You CANNOT compare BOISE ST. vs V.T. to BOISE ST. vs.UGA.

UGA is FAR bigger, taller and faster in the front seven then V.T. If you watched the game, BOISE ST. and V.T. were about the same size and BOISE was able to have their way. Surprisingly, V.T. is not that big in the front seven on defense.

UGA is almost 30 pounds and 2 inches taller on the offensive and defensive line. BOISE ST. will not be able to have their way at the line of scrimmage. If they win against UGA, it will be because of finesse not POWER, like they used against VT.

I predict that the game will be close for 3 quarters, maybe BOISE ST. will have the lead. However, UGA will end up blowing the game up in the 4 quarter do to the relentless pound BOISE will take by the bigger lines UGA has on offense and defense.

1st Quarter – UGA 3, BOISE ST. 7
2nd Quarter – UGA 10, BOISE ST. 17
3rd Quarter – UGA 24, BOISE ST. 24
4th Quarter – UGA 32, BOISE ST. 24
