Our offense is going to be absolutely filthy in a couple of years with Eason, Hardman, Godwin, Nauta, and potentially Robertson. Once Pittman upgrades the level of play on the line, who's going to be able to stop us?

All sorts of rumors flying around about EJ Price right now.

The main one is that Carla Williams has put the kibosh on him coming to UGA and he will be headed to USCw. Supposedly, there is something in his background (not academic) that makes her not okay with him being on campus. That "something" (whatever it is) is also supposedly the reason for his decommitment earlier this recruiting cycle.

Cogitate on that for a bit...

Richt generally had his classes largely lined up and secured before signing day.........Smart's first has been an abbreviated few weeks since he just took over, and we'll see his recruiting style develop over the next year or two.

It's a shame you cannot even mention the former head coach around here anymore without getting chastised for doing so...and I also see many differences so far.

Yeah whenever a new staff comes in there is always a hybrid in that first class, thus so many annoucements that include UGA. Thankfully, we have been on the right side of some of them today. Hopefully they are ones that work out for our future

I don't bring him up. In any event, I was merely asking if we could leave him alone. The day has been a good one - so far - for the future. I see no point dwelling on the past.

I am sorry you took it as an attack. It wasn't meant that way...

So now can we move on and talk about signing day.

Georgia has offered Rhode Island graduate transfer offensive lineman Tyler Catalina according to a tweet from his brother, Tony, on Wednesday. Catalina is currently committed to Iowa State but has offers from Auburn and Penn State.

The 6-foot-6, 300-pound lineman is still in school at Rhode Island where he will finish his degree and be able to enroll at the school of his choice at the end of spring semester. He has signed financial aid paperwork with Iowa State according to his brother, but is not bound to any school.

When asked if they planned to take a look at UGA, Tony Catalina responded "absolutely."

Catalina earned second-team All Colonial Athletic Conference honors in 2015 and third-team honors in 2014. He was also a team captain at Rhode Island in his junior season.

Totally agree. It's their lives, not ours. They need to go where they want to be. The guys going to Bama will be fine. Derrick Brown is a head scratcher. There is a 50-50 chance Garner won't be there in 2017.

Brown is the one that makes you wonder. Smart went all out, helicopters and all and still Brown went to Auburn. I was really excited about the prospect of having Brown next to Trent Thompson. UGA needs big LB's and Davis or Wilson would have probably started for UGA, but they will be 2nd or 3rd on the depth chart at Bama. There is so much pressure on Bama kids to stay play instate, though with Bama or Auburn, much more than in Georgia. I bet people lose jobs if their kid chooses to go out of state as a top 5 prospect in Alabama.

It is what it is. Why don't Georgia players feel the same pressure?

I heard someone explain that many players in Georgia are immigrants from other states like Derrick Brown from Miss and don't consider themselves to be home-staters, whereas Alabama has kids that have been ingrained with state-pride through generations of ancestors living there. That and how important college football is because of the lack of pro teams puts so much pressure on kids to stay in-state.

I only want kids to sign with UGA that really, really want to be here. Brown didn't want to be a Dawg, so........see ya.

There are plenty of good football players that this staff will bring in next year that will make you all forget about today's misses.

Anybody remember Montravious Adams? I heard the same things about him two years ago that we've been hearing about Brown. He hasn't helped Garner or Malzahn enough to beat us in the last two years......and we built the best DL depth today without him that we have had in a very, very long time.

Now Kirby and Pittman have to get the same done at OL in the next year..........

Rob and suddenly with Godwin and Eason has to be happy. That's not even mentioning Nauta and Blazevich and Jackson Harris at TE. One of the analysts mentioned that under Chaney, the TE's in his offense are usually the 2nd leading receivers, both at Pitt and Arkansas.

I have been told that the staff was looking at Simmons in an H-back type role and not strictly as a wide receiver........maybe more of the role that Kenyan Drake played in the Alabama offense.....the kid's a playmaker with the ball in his hands.

The Carla Williams story is total BS. Price had a UGA LOI right in front of him. The BS story was used by those close to Price that didn't want him to go to UGA......and Kirby confirmed it.

If it is true about Price, then he is a punk. I think the term trolling UGA fits very well here. All this time, I think he has been waiting to get back at UGA for backing off his other offer for whatever he did back last year. UGA could have focused on a player who actually wanted to be at UGA this whole time and now they are scrambling to find a lineman this late.

UGA could have focused on a player who actually wanted to be at UGA this whole time and now they are scrambling to find a lineman this late.

My understanding is that Price would have had to take an additional math class between now and enrolling to qualify for admission at UGA. It wasn't a situation of not qualifying due to grades or GPA, only the core requirement needed to gain entry. Apparently, he did not need that class to enroll at USC. It is not saying that USC enrollment standards are lower, only different in this particular case. Price could have taken the class, passed it and been able to enroll at UGA. Apparently, he did not want to take the class and chose another school that didn't require it. If that's his choice, who can argue with him? After all, it's his choice.

Kirby wanted to make sure that he felt Price had an obligation to debunk the wild rumors earlier in the day about the Carla Williams fabrication. It was bogus.....there was a NLI in front of Price from UGA..........and Kirby made the point to Price via the text message that he should tell the truth and admit that he could have come to Athens if he had wanted to. UGA was not barring admission to Price.

He chose not to...........and I wish him the best at USC.

People need to really just let Price do what he wants (https://www.dawgnation.com/football/recruiting/ej-price-sets-the-record-straight-about-why-he-did-not-choose-uga) without harassing him. EC's post above is a model of how to handle it, IMO.


UGA was a school he was once committed to. What changed? Was there another reason? Did he prefer the previous coaches who had spent more time with him building a relationship? Price was asked if he would have still went to UGA if Mark Richt was the head coach. He said yes.



“If Coach Richt was at Georgia then I would be a Dawg,” Price said.



To be clear, Price then said Richt was not at UGA and it was a subject that wasn’t even worth talking about. He had nothing but good things to say about the current staff, but that answer shows how much respect he had built up for Richt. It shows he felt that playing for him would have been enough for him to look past what he felt was a better academic fit at USC.



That answer also adds to the discussion that he was not prevented from choosing UGA.



Does that throw those red flags out the window? According to Price, he made a personal choice that it was better for his future to go to USC. It might be harder for a rabid fan base to swallow, but that was what he said on signing day.

Price answered only a hypothetical question and it is easy for him to say something like he would be a Dawg if Richt was still there. It doesn't make it true, but it does show that he was not denied admission to UGA, which was my only point in including that portion of the article. I am tired of debating Richt. I prefer to look forward, not back. I wish a segment of our fanbase who seems eager to be overly critical of Richt would follow your lead.

Most have moved on, and long ago. However, it is extremely difficult not to mention the former coach and staff when addressing the current needs of the program and the different direction that it is headed. Any mention of Richt or his past staff should not automatically be viewed as critical (as DJ's comment was not IMO). We don't need Dawg fans judging and criticizing one another (as was stressed to me by you and others here after the coaching change and hiring of the new coach back in December.) It's a time to pull together for hopefully an exciting future.

I moved on long ago as have most....and.....let's stop with feeling the need to judge or criticize every innocuous comment from Dawg fans.......that's not moving on either.

I think Hardman plays both ways some no matter what. He can be as a good as he wants as a DB or WR. Hardman, Robertson and Godwin all have similar skill-sets, so myself, I would like to see Hardman as a lockdown corner and KR. UGA's return game should be one of the most dangerous teams in the entire country, with Godwin, McKenzie, Hardman and possibly Robertson.

Not sure I'd have DR running back kicks, both IM and TG are elite level returners capable of scoring on any kick. UGA should have a filthy offense in two/three years with Godwin, McKenzie, Robertson and Natua catching passes from Eason. Smart needs to land an elite OL class next year to block for those guys, and possibly another couple of RBs since Chubb will be a junior, as will Michele.

But UGA is like Bama, getting RBs is disgustingly easy. Bama landed Edmonns this year, and has two 4/5* RBs committed for the 2017 class. Smart will platoon a lot esp early next year to ease Chubb back into action until hes 100% healthy. I expect UGA to platoon RBs just like Bama does, CKS knows its extremely important to keep the RBs fresh.

I think Hardman will play field corner, and get some snaps at WR and wildcat.

Agree completely. Hardman has the potential to be an all conference or all american at cornerback.

Yeah I read that Brown told Smart the NIGHT BEFORE NSD and said he was a Dawg, full bore, yet committed to Auburn the next morning. Its possible AU had him do that to try and hurt the UGA class, if so it shows zero class and is a huge LOL since UGA had a much better class than AU.

If you guys land Robertson, any chance Hardman switches to DB?


Above comment is one of the most ironic statements I've seen on this board considering how many times Saban has planted a recruit in AU's class only to flip at the end directly to screw AU.

All the AU Mods, and even national mods were leaning Brown to AU. The only one that was full bore Brown to UGA were the UGA site mods.

Most have moved on, and long ago. However, it is extremely difficult not to mention the former coach and staff when addressing the current needs of the program and the different direction that it is headed. Any mention of Richt or his past staff should not automatically be viewed as critical (as DJ's comment was not IMO). We don't need Dawg fans judging and criticizing one another (as was stressed to me by you and others here after the coaching change and hiring of the new coach back in December.) It's a time to pull together for hopefully an exciting future.

I moved on long ago as have most....and.....let's stop with feeling the need to judge or criticize every innocuous comment from Dawg fans.......that's not moving on either.

There was no point to the comment other than to be critical of Richt...no point to it in any other context.

Why can't you let it go and move on like everyone else? DJ has the right to post whatever the hell he wants to....and, of course you have the right to be full bore anal and install yourself as the Richt criticism filter, too. I just think it's entirely unnecessary.

Antics like this get old around here.

The only thing I believe is that Brown and his family lied directly to Smart and the Georgia staff.....and for that reason alone I'm glad he went somewhere else.

The 247 mods Cbed him to Auburn. However, this has nothing to do with the fact that Brown and his family trolled Smart. I have no idea why they would do that.

No idea. He didn't strike me as the type to do that, curious as to where that "source" came from. What I heard was that Brown called the AU coaches that morning and told them he was headed to AU. At the end of the day all of this is "hearsay". Maybe AU did try to screw Kirby in recruiting, lord knows that other than Nick Saban, AU has plenty of reason to want to screw Kirby over..and it's not like we're all friends here. We're rivals. This kind of thing happens in recruiting, especially ever since UAT started doing everything possible to get an edge, other schools are just going to do the same.

FWIW, the argument could be made that David Marshall tried to do the same thing in order to "screw AU." Pretty much everyone saw through that charade though.

Ah, the moral equivalent. Auburn is famous for that. Marshall didn't call Auburn on 2/2 and say he was going to Auburn.This does not compute. However, I don't care. Brown signed with Auburn, end of story.

Uhm, actually he did, as he was already verbally committed to Auburn...for weeks. Lol.

You know damn well that Brown and his family lied to Smart the night before NSD.
