ATHENS — I honestly don’t like to be too quick to judge. I fully believe in the American legal cornerstone of innocent until proven guilty.

ATHENS — It seemed too convenient a narrative: The Georgia defense, with all that talent coming back, was being gouged. It was being “ran through,” to use Kirby Smart’s term, by an offense that had struggled last season. Prop up a unit that needed a confidence boost. Light a fire under a unit that could […] The post On the beat: UGA’s defense probably will be just fine appeared first on DawgNation.

ATHENS — Kirby Smart said earlier this week that he just hoped for a tight competitive G-Day Game. Well, he got his wish as the Red Team edged the Black 25-22 on a field goal with a minute to play.

ATHENS – One area of concern for UGA that was of the utmost concern before Saturday’s G-Day football game was the Bulldogs’ receivers. The receiving corps had a big day. The unit was a little slow to get started. And it certainly benefited from a coaching staff initiative to put the ball in the air […] The post UGA football: Receivers have breakout day at G-Day appeared first on DawgNation.

Georgia honors its spring practice standouts every season. That’s a Bulldog tradition. Kirby Smart added a new wrinkle this year.

ATHENS — It wasn’t the most aesthetically pleasing G-Day for Georgia kicker Rodrigo Blankenship. An extra point that missed. Two missed field goals from makeable distance. A made field goal from short distance that doinked off the upright.

ATHENS – I promise I’m not trying to create a quarterback controversy where there isn’t one. And I’m quite aware of the talent distribution as it existed on the field Saturday for UGA’s G-Day Game. But I’ll be darned if Jake Fromm doesn’t look really, really good. Didn’t you think? Fromm, a true freshman quarterback […] The post UGA QB Jake Fromm impresses many at G-Day, especially Kirby Smart appeared first on DawgNation.

ATHENS – Jonathan Ledbetter was in the backfield, past his man, poised to make the big play – and then the whistle blew.
