For the past three weeks (up until about 3 hours ago exactly) I have not had access to the internet, or a computer (besides the one at work, which of course I cannot post there) due to the extensive remodeling that is going on here at my residence.  So for that I am sorry.  A good bit has happened in the past 3 weeks, some of it is good news, some of it is great news.  Let me gather my thoughts in the next hour or so and I’ll opine on several hot UGA football topics, including Crowell’s infraction, Aaron Murray”s rockin’ bod, and my thoughts on the UGA Men’s Basketball team in the big dance.

Also Captain will be taking an in-depth look at steroids in competitive eating as well as giving you his ‘Way-too-Early for 2011’ hottest she-males of the year.

Until then, watch this.

I’m Tired of our UGA’s Dropping Like Flies!

Seriously…this has got to stop.  I don’t know what in the hell is happening in the development of these dawgs, but they look weak and out of shape all the time.  They need a new strength and conditioning coach.   Seiler is now officially off of the bun warmer and onto the hotseat.  One more season like this and he’s gone.  If he doesn’t make the right off-season moves, all of the scorn of the fans will be upon him.

Seiler is now on the recruiting trail, evaluating several prospects who look good out of Savannah and Macon.  We shall see.

Damn Good Dawg: Logan Gray Tribute

On a cold February night a few years ago, my father asked me if I had any recruiting news to share with him.  “Yes, I do.  We got this QB and this tight end combo out of Missouri. Both are supposed to be very good and the QB can run.”  Some how over the past 3 years my father has developed some sort of football- love affair with Logan Gray.  He always wanted to see him play.  In his mind (and sometimes in my own), he envisioned this athlete at QB would was just as dangerous outside the pocket as he was in it. Someone who would be a smash mouth drive finisher with finesse.

As you should know by now, my father’s dream will never come to fruition because Logan Gray will be transferring.  For what it’s worth, I can’t blame him for doing so.  Whatever his reasons, which seem more that admirable, I know about 500 dawg fans in my realm that are with him.  Back to my father’s view of Logan:

When 2009 season began, Dad really was looking forward to my spring practice update, which I always give to him.  He used to be one helluva gamer.  Coming every Saturday, breakdown partying on the tracks, and watching some of the purest UGA football to ever be played.  He now has this mentality: ‘Why should I go to all of that trouble, just to have some young dumbass puke on me and your Mama when I can watch it on my 60″ HDTV at home in my plush over-sized leather chairs.” (He has a point, there.)  But I told him about how I really thought Gray would be the guy and he got so excited.  He loves dual threat quarterbacks (I am more of a pocket passer guy) and just thought that Gray would surely take the job.  So I’ll stop with the Tao of Logan at this point; I don’t want to mull around in the mire of what Gray didn’t get to do, but rather what he did do.

Beyond the statistics, Logan Gray was to me: a helluva athlete, a HUGE team player, and a pretty witty guy (based on his affinity for one Kenny Powers).  It takes a MAN to know he wont be getting much playing time, yet continues to support his team and do whatever it takes to win.  The un-sung hero sometimes need a voice.  I want to think that at least some part of the post can be his, albeit within the HTT circle.

There is also something to be said about the few classy football players out there. That even when they know it is time to start another journey that they still do so with humility, class, and dignity.  In a world where the parades of human debris like ‘The Jersey Shore’ and ‘Desperate Housewives’ earn the glory and the face-time, there will always be men with character like Logan Gray.  Good men like Logan Gray. Men that decide they want the RIGHT things in life and pursue those wants with tenacity, perseverance, and courage. These are the type of men that keep America, America.  These are the type of men that keep feminist-induced former shells of men at a steep contrast with true ones.

Logan, thanks for this.  You’re a damn good dawg. Good luck and God’s Speed.

And the guy has some pretty witty facebook updates…

“But a true champion, face to face with his darkest hour, will do whatever it takes to rise above. A man fights, and fights, and then fights some more. Because surrender is death, and death is for pussies.” -Kenny Powers

Who Brings a Bulldog Pup to His Announcement? That Be Isaiah Crowell !!!

Yeah, I be that dawg!

I’m not going to really go into a ton of depth about the recruiting picture.  At this point, it is what it is.  Don’t get me wrong, I am very excited and I am very shocked that we’ve done so well.  Crowell is HUGE and you all know it.

Here is a pretty cool video on ESPN.  (I love the question where he just repeats what that douche bag ESPN guy asks him)

Now, if we get John Jenkins on Saturday we will really have something here.  People who can play right away, make a difference, and punish our rivals.

Upcoming post tomorrow will be a tribute to my buddy, Logan Gray.  So tune in.

Ray Drew announces for Georgia

Earlier this morning, DE/LB hybrid badass Ray Drew out of Thomas County Central High School publicly announced his decision to enroll at our beloved University of Georgia. Drew becomes the highest-rated commitment for Mark Richt and is a huge puzzle piece in his Dream Team concept.

ESPN/Scouts has Drew ranked as the nation’s #2 defensive end and #13 overall with a 5-star rating. Rivals also lists Drew as a 5-star athlete and as the #1 DE and #9 overall prospect in the nation. Quite a nice player to have in Todd Grantham’s system.

Georgia now has 4 of the top 60 prospects according to Rivals, with #23 Isaiah Crowell and #42 Jeoffrey Pagan reportedly leaning towards Athens as well. Another standout player that is crucial for Georgia is Juco NT John Jenkins as he would fill a critical talent void by anchoring the defensive line. Nabbing all three of these guys would vault Georgia into the top 3 as far as the 2011 recruiting class goes.

Joe T II ‘The Duece’ is a hardass and the Savior of our S&C Program…

I don’t want to opine too much about this from Seth Emerson on The Georgia Beat Blog (also follow his link to the Macon Telegraph) because I think it speaks for itself, but if you’re a Dawgs fan and this doesn’t get your nether region tingling, then you should take a bath with a toaster, Groundhog Day style…

Last week I had a chance to sit down with Joe Tereshinski, the newly-elevated strength and conditioning coordinator for the Georgia football team. The story is now posted at Macon.com, and here’s an excerpt:

“So I do see where we were getting beat. I do see where our weaknesses are,” he said. “And so that’s what we are attacking. We are attacking where we’ve been weak.”

So what does all that “attacking” entail? Tereshinski doesn’t want to get too specific because he wants to keep the training habits in-house. After his first workouts in January, players started tweeting about how strenuous the workouts were. Backup quarterback Hutson Mason tweeted, “I call this a good hire! Hard work aint enough!”

But Tereshinski told the players to cut out the tweeting. He also scoffed at the players reacting to how tough the first few workouts were.

“That’s how it’s supposed to be,” he said.

At first I was told Tereshinski would only have 20 minutes, but it turned to a bit more as he got going. The man loves to talk about his craft, and is obviously excited about the job.

“When (Mark Richt) asked me to go into strength and conditioning, that’s where my passion is,” Tereshinski said, in a quote that didn’t make my story. “I love working with young men.”

There was one other thing that couldn’t make it into my story that I wanted to pass along. Tereshinski says one factor that hasn’t gotten much notice is that because of construction, the team has been moved to a different weight room, and for the previous 18 months had been largely operating out of trailers. They didn’t have much room for equipment: No dip bars, no incline presses, and some other machines.

“Last year’s team was very limited, really because of the facility, of what they could get done,” he said. “So we were very weak in our triceps. We were very weak in our upper chests. So what happens is now that we have our full weight room capacities we’re really going to be able to develop our bodies fully. …

“That did affect this team. Because Georgia did not have anything that it was used to having. Now we have an unbelievable weight room, and we have everything we need.”

Wow, that speaks VOLUMES.  And bringing Thomas Brown back in is also a HUGE plus.  Look for us to get stronger in the 4th quarter this season, not weaker.

New Commenting set up…PLEASE READ

So we take a month off and come back and notice that our site has a TON of traffic. While that is good in one sense, it was burdensome in another. When we left we had 200+ comments on our site. Within 20 days, we had over 56,000!!! All spam ranging from growing my penis size (insert joke here_______) to finding local singles, to Christian Bookstores, and one person came forward to tell us Obama is a leftist.

So, Captain put on his Technological Thinking Cap (which is a dildo mounted to an oversized cowboy hat) and got it straightened out.

From now on, you must register a username and log in password and then actually log in to post. Take the extra step and tell us what you think. We appreciate it!
