Georgia Football: Gurley’s Appeal Denied, UGA/FL Hype Videos, 5 Keys For UGA – Daily Dose of Dawg
Todd Gurley’s Appeal Denied
To no one’s surprise, Todd Gurley’s appeal was denied yesterday by the NCAA. There was just no way the NCAA was going to go back on their punishment because in their minds, it’d make them look weak. What’s interesting, though, is that Georgia really thought they had a good chance of getting the case overturned. Last night, the University released this statement:
“We are very disappointed in tonight’s decision by the Division I Student-Athlete Reinstatement Committee regarding our appeal on Todd Gurley’s eligibility reinstatement. We believe our case to the NCAA for Todd’s immediate reinstatement was strong and compelling. However, we now have exhausted all available options and look forward to Todd’s return to competition on November 15. The full attention of the Bulldog Nation now needs to be focused on our team and Saturday’s important game against Florida.”
I could go on and on about the NCAA and how crooked they are, but I’ll save that for a future post. For now, let’s all turn our full attention to beating the Gators for the fourth year in a row.

Five Keys for Georgia to Beat Florida
Here are Gentry Estes’ five keys for Georgia to beat Florida.
I really don’t even think UGA needs to do five certain things to beat this terrible Florida team, so I’ll just name 3:
Stop Treon Harris Running the Ball – One thing the Georgia defense has struggled with in recent years is mobile quarterbacks. Now Harris is no Nick Marshall or even Connor Shaw, but the guy is very athletic, and if UGA doesn’t have someone spying him, he could run all over this defense.
Watch for the Trick Play – Will Muschamp has nothing to lose. He can read the writing on the wall, and he knows that his time in Gainesville is coming to an end quickly. He will try anything and everything, regardless of how risky, to try to beat his alma mater. UGA needs to be aware of this at all times, meaning they need to be on the look out for onside kicks, fake punts, and little trick plays in the backfield.
Open Up Running Lanes – As atrocious as this Florida team has been, they’ve actually done a great job stopping the run, holding opponents to only 117 yds/gm (4th in the country). If Georgia is able to open up running lanes and Nick Chubb can get going, this will be a very long game for the gators. Now, I don’t think this Georgia team needs to have a dominating rushing attack because teams have still been able to beat Florida without one, but if they can establish the run, I give the Gators a 0% chance of leaving Jacksonville with a “W.”
I’ll just leave this here
**WARNING**: All of these keys could go flying out the window come Saturday because this is the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, and as we all know, ANYTHING can happen.
