While it is pretty slow as far as the football team is concerned, spring practice is right around the corner. With spring break coming up, the main worry is usually players staying out of trouble and not doing anything stupid (ask Baker Mayfield).
Right now the main worry for Dawg fans is our players staying healthy. Of course there is the recent news of Trent Thompson having to drop his classes this semester to concentrate on his health. He will very likely be back in time to practice this fall and play in the first game.
Now our leading tackler is out due to surgery. Roquan Smith had surgery on his pectoral muscle and is expected to miss some of the spring, if not all of it. Unless something crazy happens, he should be good to go for fall ball.
While we do have Reggie Carter and Natrez Patrick manning the middle, there is at least one good thing that comes from injuries such as this…………….and that is younger guys getting more reps.

ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia’s J.J. Frazier has been named SEC Player of the Week after averaging 28.5 points per game in the Bulldogs’ victories over Alabama and LSU last week. The SEC office in Birmingham announced the league’s weekly honors on Monday morning.
Frazier, a 5-10, 155-pound senior from Glennville, Ga., played a critical role in Georgia’s two wins, which came in a span of just 49 hours.
Last Thursday at Alabama, Frazier scored 28 points, nearly half of the Bulldogs’ total offensive output in the 60-55 victory. After the Crimson Tide cut Georgia’s 12-point halftime lead to 48-47 with 9:06 left, Frazier scored nine of the Bulldogs’ last 12 points to secure the victory.
