You’re exactly six sleeps away from watching the Georgia Bulldogs play college football and, in the words of Wes Blankenship, mayor of Coffeetown, if that don’t light your fire then your wood’s wet.
It’s probably a good thing for the gang from Coffeetown that they won’t have Rabun County and Bulldog QB commit Gunner Stockton on the schedule. In a nationally televised game against Pace Academy last night Stockton was nearly unstoppable, tallying 7 total touchdowns and just under 500 yards of total offense. Also of note, he shared after the game that he and top Bulldog tight end target Oscar Delp are planning to be at this weekend’s UGA/Clemson game in Charlotte.
Week zero of college football wasn’t great for Scott Frost and his Nebraska Cornhuskers, who were upset yesterday by first year Illinois Coach Bret Bielema and his Illini. A big part of that was former Georgia tight end Luke Ford, who scored his first college touchdown in the victory.

In case you forgot, Ford transferred from Athens to be closer to his ailing grandfather, then was inexplicably denied immediate eligibility at Illinois. Some guys just deserve to be pulled for. In my mind Ford is definitely one of them.
Marc Weiszer of the Banner Herald has a good primer on Georgia’s phalanx of tailbacks for the 2021 season. It’s a bit of a cliché to say that UGA is loaded at running back, but as Marc points out this group may be the deepest in 20 years based on last year’s usage.
Personally I would point to the fact that Daijun Edwards might be Georgia’s fifth tailback and could very well start at almost half the SEC. There’s also the fact that Lovasea Carroll was one of the top ten high school tailbacks in America last year and is getting his first look at cornerback.
