It just brings tears to your eyes. From the day we 1st listened to him talking to us in his recruiting, I love the man and tracked him here for those comments during recruitment – how smart he is. He sounds like a coach talking -that smart. I remember the 2nd vol hitting him when he was already going out of bounds – so many hurt rest of their lives on vols’ orange “field.” Kirby says going to take a LONG TIME – do him RIGHT Ron Courson in charge. “Tentative now that he has started to run,” Kirby says today. It’s just breaks my heart. What a guy Kirby to share all this with us. Right ? The Dirty Dozen Running Backs for 2016 season.

This blog has long made the point about Ron Courson being the # 1 doctor in the United States of America and how Vince hired him from Alabama to take care of our beloved Bulldogs and others such as Southern’s kick-off returner Devon Gales.  We all watched as Ron Courson saved this man’s life.  He the 1st there and now he has some feeling in his legs, Devon Gales does.  I saw all that.


John Hollis of Saturday Down South does a wonderful job of describing this.

I knew when we got him and not Georgie tek yellowjackets – right then – what a special man Nick Chubb is.


I hang on his EVERY word.  I love to listen to him.


We do have a stable of running backs and really lost little after last season at running back.  We are really set at this position.  We misused them last season, again.  It was not until game 8 – when I shamed the coaching staff for their misuse of our running game last season – that finally some of them got their 1st snap ALL SEASON LONG.


Game 8.

Kirby Quote :


“I think his psyche is he’s still a little tentative right now because he just started to run some and do some things,” Smart recently told 680 The Fan’s “Front Row,” according to the Athens Banner-Herald. “He trusts our training staff. Ron (Courson) does an unbelievable job with him. Ron gives me a weekly update on Nick and he’s shown really good progress.”


“To say he’s going to be ready Day One or he’s going to be ready Game One, I think we’re a long way from that right now,” Smart said. “We want to do what’s right for Nick long term, and that’s the most important thing. He feels comfortable with that, Ron feels comfortable with that and that’s at the discretion of the doctors.”


Commend Kirby for realizing we are all pulling in the same direction – that we are NOT NOISE.


What a guy Kirby to share all this with us.  Right ?


I Love you Nick Chubb.


We can run the ball.  You get better fine young man, sir !


Nick Chubb will be a FUTURE COACH I said when he committed here, and I read his words about his commitment to us all.


November Terry Godwin had -0- carries all season long last year.  November.

November Quayvon Hicks had -0- carries all season long last year. November.

November AJ Turman had -0- carries all season long last year. November.

We had not given Faton Bauta a single snap at QB and he is a running back.  November.


Coach Dell McGee is in charge of this this season with Kirby.


I love Dell McGee.  I have loved Dell McGee for MANY YEARS and have spoke often here on this blog of Dell McGee’s exploits.

# 5 Best Athlete in the Nation. Charlie Woerner. Rabun County  SERIOUS RUNNING BACK !

Nephew of Scott Woerner College Football Hall of Fame just sent his FAX in here and said : “I’m from Georgia, always been a fan, and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else,” Charlie told the AJ-C.  6′ 5″ 228 lbs 4.78 40-yard dash !  Beast.  Tops All-American.  With our TE Depth might play nearly anywhere such as WR or Safety as his Uncle. We’ll see where Kirby slots him, I am guessing Safety.  I know Erk would.
# 1 Athlete in the Nation Mecole Hardman Jr 2-Way Player & Special Teams Elbert County
Mecole Hardman Jr FANTASTIC RUNNIING BACK is the biggest new news for Signing Day 2016.  He had told Kirby’s predecessor that he had Alabama above Georgia and that he did not bring his players ready to play, but that Kirby’s players WERE ready to play.  Kirby’s predecessor had INVITED Mecole Hardman Jr to the Alabama game as his Official NCAA Visit.  Good Lord.  But, Kirby turned Mecole Hardman Jr around for us today !  Great News !  I love this guy !  Kirby can figure out where to use him when but he will START game 1 and play 3 years and then go early in the NFL Draft.  U.S. Army All-American like the other 5 listed above.  5′ 11″ and 180 lbs. # 16 Overall Football Player in the Nation.  QB and Defensive Back.  Historic Signing Day !  Thank you Mecole !  I see him as Defensive Back and Special Teams and sometimes on Offense too maybe Wide Receiver. 4.48 Mecole Hardman Jr is the FASTEST Signee for Georgia so far today !  Likely the fastest obviously we will sign. His speed is one of the many reasons he is the # 1 Athlete in this class and a LOT of the many reasons this class is historic.
# 12 Running Back in the Nation Elijah Holyfield.  Woodward
5′ 11″ and 204 lbs. physical running back. Son of only 4-time Heavyweight Champion of the World Evander Holyfield of Atlanta !  4.63 in the 40-yard dash makes great catches and his cuts after the catch and in rushing his cuts are crisp leaving defenders looking.  Tough.  1st Team All-State AAAA Georgia Sportswriter’s Association.  No fumbles.
The Dirty Dozen Running Backs for 2016 season.  They will be great !
