    • Heck, whatever folks say gen z’ers do read and care about stuff on the net. I really liked Jake and couldn’t believe how many dawg “fans” criticized him. What the heck did he do wrong. Just came to play. Ran...

    • I think Jake made the right decision. He had a mediocre season much of which was not his doing. He didn't want to hang around. Looking for the next adventure. If his stepping up when we lost Jacob is any guide he will do...

    • Sedrick Van Pran Granger is now a Georgia Bulldog. SVP's signing with UGA also speaks well for Coach Luke keeping these early Sam Pittman recruits in State.

    • Broderick Jones makes it official, also . . . . nice things were said by Jones about Coach Luke. Coaching changeover seems to have worked well for Georgia.

    • Sedrick Van Pran. Watching the video below, know that Coach Luke is going to smile widely when Sedrick is dressed out in Red and Black. Young man can play any position on both the offensive and defensive lines. Video below shows SVP moving his big body further than the second level, couple of downfield tackles and blocks on the video that are impressive. Coach Luke will find a spot for Sedrick to get "some" playing time in 2020 for sure. Offensive coordinator Todd Monken going to smile Wednesday 2/5/2020 also. https://www.hudl.com/video/3/7497094/5a528a8b176be60bb8a0b46a and this . . . . Hoodie Burger ;) Video has SVP playing center "a lot". https://www.hudl.com/profile/7497094/Sedrick-Van-Pran

    • yankeedawg1, I have the same feelings that you do about Coach Luke. Firmly believe that Luke is in Athens for the long haul. He had a run at head coach and from where I sit, Luke did a good job. Luke definitely stepped up when Ole Miss was at its lowest point in many years, maybe ever. Laid a solid foundation for Lane Kiffin to build upon, and Lane will do just that. Lane moved Alabama off center, changed a lot of what needed to be done in Tuscaloosa. Fully expect Coach Luke to make some changes in Athens that will also move our team forward. As far as Coach McGee, if I were in charge, Dell would be issued a "lifetime contract" no questions asked. I have feared more than once that Coach Dell McGee would be lifting his anchor in Athens for places unknown. Appears that Kirby Smart is going to do much of what Nick Saban did while Kirby was an assistant, move out of first gear, time has come to shift gears. Think you and I can agree that the "process" continues.

    • Buc.....you were the first to label Coach Pittman as a treasure.. Correctly so.... left our OL in better shape than when he arrived.. I sense Coach Luke will continue...and add to quality of our OL.. Watching Coach Dell working his recruiting magic...he also is a treasure to our football program.... plus he is a damn fine coach.. the process continues.. On to Wednesday and NSD.. Go Dawgs
