Dec. 4, 2016

ATHENS —- The Georgia football team has been extended, and accepted, an invitation to play in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl on Friday, December 30, with a 12:00 noon ET kickoff against TCU from the Big 12.

The game will be played at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium and be televised by ESPN.

The Bulldogs have made three previous trips to the Memphis bowl game. N.C. State defeated Georgia, 14-7, in the 1967 game; Georgia came out on top of Arkansas, 20-17, in the 1987 game; UCF defeated the Bulldogs, 10-6, in 2010.

This will mark the fourth time Georgia and TCU have played. The Bulldogs defeated TCU, 40-26, in the January 1, 1942 Orange Bowl, and recorded regular season victories in 1980 (34-3), and 1988 (38-10). The 1942 Orange Bowl was Georgia’s first bowl game.

ATHENS, Ga. — The Georgia Bulldogs (5-3) could not tame the hot-shooting Marquette Golden Eagles (6-2) on Sunday afternoon in an 89-79 loss at Stegeman Coliseum.

The Bulldogs were as close as two points with a little more than seven minutes left in the second half but the Golden Eagles went on an 11-0 run to control and secure the win.

“Marquette has a very good offensive team and their offense is significantly better than our defense right now,” said Georgia Head Coach Mark Fox. “We didn’t defend the three-point line, did not rebound the basketball, we had too many deadly turnovers that turned into points on the other end, and the combination of those three things was certainly our demise today.”

UGA Recruiting: What Will Dawgs Do at QB in Next Years Class?

fields-1112

It’s been obvious all along that Trevor Lawrence is our top target at QB for the 2018 class and why wouldn’t he be. He’s the #1 overall prospect in the 2018 class and the best quarterback prospect to come out in a good while.

Early on it looked like Emory Jones could be a possible target, but his recruitment ended when he got his dream offer from Ohio State.

In the past couple of months another name emerged as a dual threat QB target, with Justin Fields receiving an offer from UGA. His name came off the uncommitted board recently as he verbally committed to Penn State.

While it’s still VERY CLOSE for Lawrence, don’t expect the Dawgs to put all our eggs in one basket. That’s burned us WAY TOO MUCH in the past. So what do we do?

UGA Recruiting: Dawgs Now After Tight End Currently on Campus for Official Visit?

t-mckitty-1204

While lack of depth showed at certain position groups this season, out tight end group has definitely been one of the strengths of the team. What makes it even better is how young this group is. It’s led by junior Jeb Blazevich, with Jordan Davis being another junior in the room. Then there’s sophomore Jackson Harris, while true freshmen Isaac Nauta and Charlie Woerner saw plenty of action this fall.

With that depth and the age of the group UGA really hasn’t been targeting a tight end for this recruiting cycle. Unless there is a transfer or two, we could use that scholarship spot for a position of need.

That hasn’t stopped the Dawgs from getting one of the top tight ends in the nation on campus for an official visit this weekend.

UGA Recruiting: Another JUCO Secondary Prospect to Keep an Eye On

lonnie-johnson-1204

The Dawgs are at it again. We will get taller and bigger in the secondary and it is getting more and more obvious that it will happen immediately, whether that comes from high school prospects, the JUCO ranks, or both.

We just finished talking about UGA visiting JUCO CB Keisean Nixon, and it looks like he has chosen to take his last OV to Tennessee before enrolling early. Not to worry, we were also in Kansas to see another JUCO DB.

This time he’s 6’3 190 pounds.

UGA Recruiting: How Do Dawg Commits and Targets Compare to Past Playoffs?

Predictable brackets holding true to form
The Georgia high school football playoffs are down to the semifinals, with 16 games scheduled around the state tonight.
So far, they’ve been as predictable as any in state history. Every No. 1- or No. 2-ranked team is still playing.
Contrast that to 2015, when state titles were won by unranked Westminster, ninth-ranked Pace Academy and 10th-ranked Allatoona.
This year, only two teams outside the top seven in their classifications – unranked Westlake (AAAAAAA) and No. 10 Hapeville Charter (AA) – have survived.
Here are more things to know about the penultimate weekend of the season.

ATHENS, Ga. — Seniors Chase Kalisz, Olivia Smoliga and Chantal Van Landeghem earned Georgia’s first NCAA qualifying times of the season during the UGA Fall Invitational on Friday at Gabrielsen Natatorium.

Following one day of competition, the Lady Bulldogs are second with 270 points, trailing Cal’s 285 and leading Virginia’s 218. The Bulldogs also stand second with 223 points behind Cal’s 259, while Auburn sits in third with 209 points.

“I was really pleased with the way we competed today,” Georgia head coach Jack Bauerle said. “We’re certainly better than we were just a month ago. Everyone has been putting in the work, and it showed in the pool today.”

UGA Recruiting: Can Dawgs Flip 5* Offensive Lineman Currently on Campus?

alex-leatherwood

Kirby Smart and Sam Pittman are bound and determined to get a day 1 starter on the offensive line and they’re doing a great job of getting stage 1 of the process completed.

We’ve already hosted 5* OT Walker Little from Texas on an official visit. While we look like a long shot, you never know what can happen once you get these guys on campus. That becomes even more true when you can offer the opportunity to be an immediate starter. We’re also scheduled to host 5* OT Isaiah Wilson next weekend on his official visit. He’s the bigtime OT that we probably have the best chance with.

A couple of days ago UGA went in home with another 5* prospect that has already taken an unofficial visit. The coaches main priority was to get him on campus for an official visit.

UGA Recruiting: This 6’3 Prospect Could Be the Next True Cornerback Commit for the Dawgs

ameer-speed-1112

Kirby Smart is looking to flip the script with our defensive backfield. He’s definitely using these next couple of classes to make sure that we only have a couple of DB’s under 6 foot tall, instead of only having a couple of DB’s over 6 foot tall.

Already committed are William Poole at corner and Richard LeCounte at safety. It’s safe to say that we feel comfortable on the 6’2 205 pound Deangelo Gibbs to end up on our commit list. You also have to feel pretty comfortable on flipping Tray Bishop. The 6’3 195 pound athlete has been playing quarterback at Terrell County, but wants to play in the defensive backfield at the next level.

We’re also after former UGA commit Latavious Brini (6’2), Christopher Henderson (6’1), and in-state prospect Eric Stokes (6’0).
