Lane Kiffin Running For Political Office, Hutson Mason Georgia’s Biggest Weakness, And More


Welcome Home Lane

I think we all can agree that the way Lane Kiffin left Tennessee was not the best way. As an Alabama fan, I still have a hard time looking at Kiffin on the sideline, but I do believe he was the best man for the job. Do I like him as a person? I am not sure considering I have never met the man, but the way he has handled his head coaching positions does not make me want to go get a beer with him. UT fans are still so butt hurt about him leaving that they are taking to even incorporating Kiffin into negative political ads. I am making my first trip to Knoxville this week, and I can only imagine the boos that will rain down on my Tide, and Lane Kiffin. Here is the full ad.

 

Big Ten Dancing 

The Big Ten is a joke. If Kentucky were in the Big Ten, they would contend this year. The mascots for each school got together and made a video dancing along to a Taylor Swift song. If that is not the most Big Ten thing to ever happen, then someone fill me in. The only way that this video could be better, would be if the ACC mascots joined in and danced with them. Here is the comical video.

 

Hutson Mason Is Weak

Every team has a weakness. Some teams like Vanderbilt have more than others, but the contenders all have a weakness that could make or break their season. Is Hutson Mason the biggest risk for Georgia? Is the lack of luck the biggest issue for Auburn? Saturday Down South came up with a list for each contender’s biggest weakness going forward. Here is the full list.

SEC Football: Why Georgia Misses Tim Tebow and Urban Meyer


Urban & Tebow

I will go to my grave saying that Tebow was a product of the system, and that Johnny Football and Scam Newton were better. I will also go to my grave saying that Urban Meyer is the sleaziest person to ever coach. With that being said, I believe that these two characters made the Georgia/Florida rivalry even more nasty than ever before. Lately, it seems like a lot of the same fire has not been there due to the fact that Florida is just pathetic, and Georgia has simply dominated since the departure of both Meyer and Tebow.

 

Could Do No Wrong

Tebow is one of the first players I can remember who could do no wrong in the eyes of the announcers, or analyst alike. Tebow would throw a duck for an incompletion “man, Tebow did everything in his power to get that ball to the receiver”, Tebow would throw and interception “The receiver has to do a better job of breaking that ball up, or he ran the wrong route”. Whenever Georgia beat Tebow in 2007, the announcers were blaming Tebow’s poor play on the fact that he had a banged up right shoulder. He throws with his left! Most of my hatred for Tebow was driven by announcers, but he did celebrate 3 yard runs like he just won the Super Bowl. Tebow does not bother me as much anymore, due to the fact he is irrelevant and is actually a good person.

 

Urban Hearts Tebow

Unlike Tebow, Urban Meyer is someone I still have a fuel of hatred for. It fits that he is at Ohio State, because instead of having to schedule teams like Florida Southern (like he did at Florida), he now has a cake walk being in the Big Ten. Meyer would run up the score on these pathetic teams, and leave his starters in to pad their stats. I did not know who Tebow’s backup was during his time at Florida because no matter the score, he would still be in trying to up his Heisman hopes. When Meyer left Florida, I felt like it was not because of health reasons, but because his best friend in the world Tim Tebow was no longer there.

 

Figure Heads

Those two fueled the hatred between the two teams, because we wanted to see Tebow cry, and Urban Meyer make excuses for the loss. What can we hate on now? Driskell is so pathetic you almost feel bad for him, and Mushcamp is so bad that it has become comical. For a rivalry to have hatred, it needs to have polarizing figures like Tebow and Meyer. I hope Florida gets someone like those two once again, because it will make victory that much sweeter.

Georgia Football Recruiting: **BIG NEWS** Dawgs On Top for New Offer, 5-Star Trenton Thompson Update, BIG 4-Star OT Update

Dawgs Offer Speedy Athlete and May Receive His Commitment Soon

Javarius Davis – ☆☆☆
Ed White (Jacksonville, FL) ATH
5-10/173

The 3-star athlete out of Jacksonville, Florida, received an offer from the UGA today, and he immediately moved the Dawgs to the top of his list. Don’t let his 3-star rating fool you, though, as plenty of top schools in the country want this kid including Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, USC, and Wisconsin. Davis has tremendous speed and could play a number of positions if he decides to become a Bulldog.

An interesting tidbit about Davis is that he is the younger brother of former UGA defensive back, Bryan Evans. Davis says that he’ll take a visit to Athens, and if everything feels right, he’ll go ahead and commit.

This wouldn’t be a flashy, big-name pick-up for UGA, but he could be one of those players that you look back on in a few years and say, “How in the world was this kid a 3-star!?”

Story on Davis here.

Check out his junior highlights:

 

Trenton Thompson Update

Trenton Thompson – ☆☆☆☆☆
Westover (Albany, GA) DT
6-4/293

5-star defensive end Trenton Thompson caught up with Rivals.com after his game on Friday and gave an update on where things stand with him. Thompson is still 150% a Dawg and isn’t wavering at all. He looks forward to getting to Athens and continues to recruit other players. Like I’ve said before, Thompson could be a huge factor in landing some top defensive talents like Roquan Smith and D’Andre Walker whose jobs would be made easier by having a dominating defensive tackle.

Thopmson plans on visiting Athens next for the Auburn game.

Interview with Thompson here.

 

Big Offensive Tackle Update

Chidi Valentine-Okeke – ☆☆☆☆
Faith Baptist Christian North (Stockbridge, GA) OT
6-5/306

Chidi Valentine-Okeke, one of the UGA’s top remaining targets for 2015 feels really good about the Dawgs. He says that Georgia feels like home to him and that he loves the coaches there. Georgia has been the school that most people think has the edge, and I have to agree. Whenever he talks recruiting, he speaks very highly of the Dawgs, and it doesn’t hurt that he’s now living in Georgia. He was initially  a 2016 recruit, but a few weeks ago after getting his transcripts in order, it’s come out that he’s now a 2015 recruit.

Chidi will commit at the Army All-American game.

Larry Munson Week: The Broadcast Legend Calls Georgia’s Win over Auburn in His Debut 1966 Season


Larry Munson loved the Georgia Bulldogs above all else.  As the late broadcaster’s obituary read, “Indeed, Munson never hid his allegiance to the Bulldogs.”  I had no personal relationship with Larry, just an autographed helmet in my office and a fond recollection of his finest, most animated calls.  But even without knowing the legend, I don’t feel I’m reaching when I say Munson would have loved the 2014 Georgia Bulldogs.  

He would have celebrated the defense’s new-found affinity for “hunkerin’ down.”  He would have joyfully recognized the brilliance of so many young players on the field.  “My God! A freshman!” he might have exclaimed about Nick Chubb.  Or Sony Michel.  Or Isaiah McKenzie. Or Dominick Sanders.  Or Jeb Blazevich.  And Lord knows what he would have had to say about Todd Gurley, but it probably would have nestled somewhere between a broken steel chair, a hobnail boot and sugar falling out of the sky.  In light of this, we decided to spend Georgia’s bye week celebrating Larry Munson along with out partners at The UGA Vault.  Over the next few days we’ll take a closer look at some of his most iconic moments throughout the decades.
