WR Israel Troupe doesn’t make trip, Dogs down to 4 scholarship WRs

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Greetings once again from EverBank Field, where we’re closing in on kickoff for the annual Georgia-Florida rivalry.

Some pregame news and notes:

  • Senior wide receiver Israel Troupe did not make the trip. No official reason was given as of yet but that obviously leaves the Bulldogs extremely thin at wide receiver.
  • Georgia was already having to go without leading receiver Malcolm Mitchell. The freshman split end from Valdosta was a late scratch when he failed to sufficiently overcome a pulled hamstring injury.
  • Rantavious Wooten (concussion) still has not returned since his late September car accident. At this point he would seem likely to be heading toward a medical redshirt season.
  • So all that leaves the Bulldogs with four scholarship wide receivers with which to compete. That’s starters Marlon Brown and Tavarres King and backups Michael Bennett and Chris Conley. Walk-ons Taylor Bradberry and Rhett McGowan complete the receiving corps for this game.

We’re almost there. Buckle up people!

What other team in the country gets two players hurt or suspended or a player transfers and all of a sudden, you are “thin” at a particular position? Only Georgia. In year 11, this should not be the case. Period.

IF all the WR’s stayed home and we ran a 2 TE set and figgins blocking, we win hands down, even with IC raising his hand to come out to often.

We aren’t facing Alabama’s secondary here. Florida’s secondary is pretty suspect. I think we’ll be fine.

Its well over due that we should have got rid of Mark Under Achieving Richt. We are about 5 years too late. I sure glad he stop pimping Jesus name and is trying to stand on his own talent….or lack there of. I wonder who hes going to blame this year. Georgia may get blown out. Its amazing to have top5 talent and end up out of contention after the 1st game. Another waste and disappointing year. More of the same next year if Richt is still here

Crowell is a wimp, all hype no go, he is scared to take a hit. Let’s run Thomas and see what h e can do, it is now time for Bobo and Richt to go, we are being beaten by a team with a crippled QB and no field goal kicker UGA sucks!!!

Well my family has now gotten off the Richt wagon. His team is not ready to play again. He is being outcoached in all aspects. Why come out throwing against a team that has trouble with the run. Get rid of Richt and Bobo now.

Another beat-down by Fl ,& I’m sick & tired of it. Ihope beyond hope that Greg McGarity will listen to the powers that be @UGA and take corrective measures. For the eleventh year that Mr. Richt has been the head coach at the University of Georgia , he has certainly proved beyond a shadow of a doubt his ineptitude to perform the duties as headfootball coach at the University of Georgia.I can’t say that I’m particularly fond of bei ng refered to as Fla.”s “B1tches” Make something besides this embarrasment happen for the Dawg Nation.

THE BOTTOM LINE

If they get the ST and OL sorted out, this could be a very special group over the next 2-3 seasons. All of the best players are still young and gaining much needed experience in big games.

I agree that the special teams need a lot of work. However, the defense was lights out against the Gators. The offensive line did a good job despite injuries and we ran the ball well. We had no major penalties unlike the gators. We won the game guys! Try looking at the positive.

Rhett McGowan is a gutsy walk-on from Calhoun, Kris Durham’s school. Clutch catch during the game. He caught a td pass in last year’s spring game. Maybe that’s why Troupe was left behind, being out performed in practice by McGowan and Bradberry who already has produced earlier this year.

Samuel has a sprained ankle; x-rays negative. Hopefully be ready for auburn.
