Kirby proves my point once again that if the recruit honestly looks at The University as a top school which which we are clearly among football powers, comes to Athens 1 of the very best college towns in the world, considers what we offer socially ladies belles dolls, likes having a good time and wants to play in 1 of the truly great football programs with the # 1 fan base anywhere to follow him, and we get him on our campus – closing OT senior transfer Tyler Catalina Team Captain 1st Team All-Conference NFL Draft 2017 hopeful 6′ 5″ at 315 lbs. choses UGA over Florida and Auburn and everyone else for this 23-year old man who has STARTED EVERY GAME OF HIS CAREER. 3 Scholarships Remain for 2016 season now for Kirby.

Quite a GREAT DAY for Sam Pittman !

This will not show-up in the Recruiting rankings because he is a graduate transfer with a degree this May, but the commitment for 2017 from another Sam Pittman target certainly does show-up in the 2017 recruiting rankings.

Aaron Murray can teach Jake Eason a LOT.  Aaron Murray is an Academic All-America as is Kirby and Jake Eason certainly is going to vie for that honor as well as he has all the Academic Credentials that Aaron Murray and Kirby had coming here too.  All of them.  I hope that he does NOT teach Jake Eason how to be sacked, fumble and throw interceptions.  Nor I hope Aaron Murray does not teach Jake Eason how to lose despite all the talent around him here. Aaron Murray LOST 17 games and had only 35 wins.

The Lady Bulldogs with RPI # 24 vs. Strength of Schedule # 23 can emerge after SEC Championship Tournament no worse than 21-9 and 9-8 vs. SEC teams with BIG WINS over RPI # 19, 21, 22, & 29 putting us solidly in the NCAA Tournament. In fact, we are 1 MORE Big Win away from being ranked in AP & Coaches Polls. The SEC has 8 teams solidly in The NCAA Women’s Division I Basketball Championship Tournament with 2 more on the bubble at # 52 & # 61. The SEC is ranked The # 1 Women’s Basketball Conference obviously this year. We only have 5 ladies who shoot the ball well and only 3 ladies who make their free throws. We foul way too much but we do play well on Defense, rebound well and we do not turn the ball over. We are deep although Mackenzie Engram has missed now 7 Consecutive Games. Our Ladies have been in 31 of all the 34 previous NCAA Women’s Division I Basketball Championship Tournaments and this will be 32 of the All-Time 35 since it started for Women in 1982 – this is # 2 All-Time in the Nation ! We also have been ranked 522 times in the AP Poll which is also # 2 All-Time although none this year so getting ranked this season is VERY IMPORTANT to our senior class which includes 4 of our 5 starters and 1 bench player Terry Godwin’s sister. We are a Top 5 Women’s Basketball Program All-Time. We have had 20 WNBA Draft Picks since 1999 which is # 4 in the nation and have 3 more who will be after this season. 65 in a row – every 4-year letterman ever here – have graduated for 36 consecutive seasons and this will be 37. We will have another Academic All-America being named this season as well to bring the total to 4 of our Lovely Lady Bulldogs’ Basketball Players who have been named Academic All-America ! We have 86 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship Tournament Wins All-Time so we are EXPECTED to add to that this season. Our ladies are embraced nationally as a Consensus Top 5 program on and off the court in the classrooms and the community and our fans are the # 1 fans of this sport we do so well in. We continue to develop this season again top talent obviously and the very top student-athletes. We have 4 Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame. One of only 3 American Athletes who have Won Gold Medals at 4 Different Olympics the Most Decorated Basketball Player in Olympics’ history. 1 of 4 American All-Time Women’s FIBA Federation International Basketball Amateur Hall of Fame. In 2007 we opened “Georgia Coliseum Training Facility” a $30 million dollar 120,000 square feet nation’s largest basketball practice facility where 3 years in a row now this year the Atlanta Hawks do their pre-season practice – most impressive in the nation. We average over 24 wins a season All-Time also Top 5 program in the nation. 11 eleven SEC Titles. This will be our 30th 20-Win Season with 3 more victories. Every game is on TV and Every game can be heard LIVE on FM Radio including in Atlanta on 103.7 WXKT-FM even in your car. I thought you should know. Our men are a different story. Both would benefit from a new gym in retaining in-state talent as well as attracting out-of-state talent and we are BEHIND in supporting our teams with this new gym with the over $150 million revenue annually our teams make us. Our “Georgia Excellence Campaign” has this new gym as their # 1 next goal.

If we built a big enough new gym, we could force the Atlanta Hawks to play 1 NBA game a year at our new gym in return for what we’ve done for them 3 years in a row now.  In fact, there could be MORE NBA and WNBA games here if we do this correctly, as well as hosting NCAA Men’s and Women’s Division I Basketball Championship Tournament games, Final 4, and SEC Championships as well and for others of our 23 sports – all of whom would benefit from a new gym with this annual in excess now of $ 150 million dollars revenue our sports teams at UGA now generate for us as an annuity. It is the # 2 ROI we could put this annuity toward – primarily basketball – ranking only behind the ROI for football as a destination for this in excess now of $ 150 million dollar annual annuity.

 

There is more meat in this 1 blog post than in all the other blog posts combined today by all Georgia blogs and newspaper stories.  This also is the # 1 blog post all-time about The Lady Bulldogs today.  By these standards this post is short only 794 words, fully documented and 100 percent accurate as you have become accustomed to here – as has been PROVEN – including my predictions which have been uncannily correct as well – some to your personal chagrin !  So I offer-up this Super Sunday before the game.

 

The Lady Bulldogs – Top 5 Basketball Program All-Time:

Hoops’ Dawgs Mark Fox has it going on, now off until Tuesday 29th then SEC slate we’re ready for. Lady Bulldogs play tonight 10-1 RPI # 7. Joni Taylor has a problem 29% from the field for Marjorie Butler’s career here at Georgia 98 of 328 shots !

12-23-2015

 

Merry Christmas !

 

Mark Fox is a KEEPER.  He really has it going on.  2 ACC teams slaughtered !  The Hoops’ Dawgs are now off until Tuesday 29th, then we go into our SEC slate we’re ready for after that game Tuesday.  That was GREAT FUN watching that last night on Comcast 792 SEC Network !

 

https://blutarsky.wordpress.com/2015/12/22/nice-work-if-you-can-get-it-4/

 

I have NO QUESTIONS about it !

 

Of course, I lettered in this sport TOO, unlike Bluto – who doesn’t play ANY sports.

 

The Lady Bulldogs play tonight, are 10-1 on the season with RPI # 7, however, they have one very selfish player on the Lady Bulldogs’ team who by herself made Andy Landers QUIT coaching knowing he had to put up with her yet all year this year !  A fantastic gal Academic All-America like Coach Kirby Smart, but damn the gal can NOT shoot to save her soul.  I am so aggravated with her.  She has done this all 4 of her years here, when she is surrounded by EXCELLENT SHOOTERS who CAN shoot the ball.

 

Joni Taylor better figure it out, or hit the road !

 

We LOST at Michigan State by 21 points when she went 0-3 from the 3-point line and 0-6 from the field, making no free throws.  Marjorie Butler is our point guard, and even with no one to play point, Joni Taylor should have BENCHED her ass right then because Joni Taylor recruited her here and has seen what a horrible shooter she is, yet JACKS IT UP.

 

We had a guy on the men’s team like this year’s ago Litterial Green .

 

Litterial Green attempted 26 shots from the 3-point line in his professional career and made 2.  That’s a .07 shooting percentage.

 

Litterial Green

 

God Damn ballhog at Georgia, he drove me to remember him to this day.

 

The Atlanta Crackers had a guy like this, and the Braves called him up !

 

 

Mack Jones has passed away now 2004, but I swear to God I watched all the time swing at any ball thrown BEHIND HIS DAMN BACK ! All of them.  They threw it behind his back, Mack Jones swung at it !  We went every night to the Atlanta Crackers’ games at Ponce de Leon Ballpark. I cringed to see him come to the plate.

 

http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/j/jonesma01.shtml

 

For his career, Mack the Knife, Mack F. Jones had 3091 at-bats !  He struck-out 756 times !  Batting Average ?  Hell no, strike-out average of .244

 

For this, the Braves paid him ten thousand a year and then 18 thousand a year at Atlanta.  We went to Fulton County Stadium when the Crackers moved there and then the Braves and I had to put up with him then, again.

 

It’s like reading any Bluto – state senator get the picture post the dumbass writes as he is ALWAYS WRONG, or any lie from Coach Kirby Smart’s predecessor – which was every word out of his mouth and still is.

Mack Jones’ fielding average was only .975.  The guy sucked !

 

Litterial Green averaged 2.9 points per game !  And, God knows he jacked the damn ball up.  He averaged 1 assist per game.

 

1.

 

All these guys are better free throw shooters for us than Litterial Green :

 

Shandon Anderson Willie Anderson Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Vern Fleming Jarvis Hayes Cedric Henderson Jumaine Jones Alec Kessler Trey Thompkins Damien Wilkins  Dominique Wilkins*

http://www.basketball-reference.com/friv/colleges.cgi?college=georgia

 

So, why wasn’t Litterial Green  an All-America player for us ?

 

UGA Basketball All-Americans
  • 1990 – Alec Kessler (UPI)
  • 1985 – Cedric Henderson (AP All-Freshman)
  • 1984 – James Banks (Playboy)
  • 1984 – Vern Fleming (Kodak)
  • 1983 – Vern Fleming
  • 1982 – Dominique Wilkins, 2nd Team (Consensus)
  • 1981 – Dominique Wilkins, 2nd Team (Sporting News)
  • 1970 – Bob Lienhard (Helms)
  • 1969 – Bob Lienhard (Helms)
  • 1953 – Zippy Morocco (Helms)

 

Because he COULD NOT SHOOT THE BALL !

 

Who has TAKEN THE MOST SHOTS FOR US ?

 

Field Goal Attempts
  • Career – 1,611, Litterial Green (1989-92)
Free Throws Made
  • Career – 549, Alec Kessler (1987-90)
Free Throw Attempts
  • Career – 744, Litterial Green (1989-92)

http://www.sicemdawgs.com/uga-basketball-history/individual-records/

 

 

 

 

 

Who do you think is our career scoring leader ?

 

http://www.georgiadogs.com/sports/m-baskbl/spec-rel/career-stats-leaders.html

 

Ballhog bad shooter Litterial Green.

The Lady Bulldogs have some big games coming-up :

 

Florida twice

Texas A & M

Missouri twice

Kentucky

Mississippi State

South Carolina

Tennessee

 

If Marjorie Butler shoots like she has here for us in these games, we lose all 9 of those games and end the season with 10 + losses.  Starting out 10-1 this would be a disaster.

 

When Litterial Green hit only 39 % of his field goals with Orlando, his career was over.  They finally figured the guy out !  I hated watching him play.

 

Litterial Green came back though after several years of no one wanting him, and shot 0 % for Cleveland and 21 % for Milwaukee.  This ended his career.

 

I could have told them.

 

http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/g/greenli01.html

 

Now, on the other hand, our men’s team is # 44 RPI with # 3 Strength of Schedule in the nation !

 

http://realtimerpi.com/rpi_356_Men.html

 

We have so many guys who can shoot the ball that it’s not funny.

 

Marjorie Butler

#24, G, Georgia

 

3-point shots in her career here, in 125 Marjorie Butler attempts, our ballhog point guard has made 26 for 19 % from the 3-point line.  She’s actually gotten WORSE over her 4 years here now.

 

29% from the field for Marjorie Butler’s career here at Georgia 98 of 328 shots.

 

http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaaw/players/37111/

 

 

Let our First Lady Mary Beth Lycett Smart – in heels take THOSE shots for us instead !  She’d drill them !

 

 

Coach Kirby Paul Smart earned Academic All-America 1998 at The University of Georgia. Chuck Dowdle Interview.

12-10-2015

Fran Tarkenton was The University of Georgia’s first ever Academic All-America in 1960.

There are 131 UGA Academic All-America in all 19 sports, which is # 11 All-Time all schools winning Academic All-America.

Coach Kirby Paul Smart earned Academic All-America at UGA 1998.

Some other of the 131 at UGA All-Time include Bill Stanfill, Kevin McClee, Jeff Pyburn, Terry Hoage, Chad Kessler, Alec Kessler, Matt Stinchcomb, Jon Stinchcomb, Coco Miller, Kelly Miller, Courtney Kupets, Gordan Beckham, Ty Frix, Aaron Murray, and Drew Butler.

 

Congratulations to these Scholar-Athletes for The University of Georgia all 131 of them, including Coach Kirby Paul Smart !

 

True meaning of the word Scholar-Athlete.

 

You will see all 131 UGA Academic All-America at this URL Link :

http://cosida.com/documents/2015/9/24//All_Time_AAA_individual_by_school_D_G.pdf?id=1603

 

 

You will see that UGA is # 11 All-Time with 131 Academic All-America here:

http://cosida.com/documents/2015/9/24//School_all_time_AAA_standings.pdf?id=1598

 

I personally am extremely proud of these 131 ever here at UGA.  They did have to be a Starter on their team AND have the grades which qualified them for Academic All-America to be listed of the 131.  I had the grades; I was not a Starter.  I know how much hard work in the classrooms this requires.

 

To whom much is given, much is expected.  And, these Scholar-Athletes are extremely gifted in the classroom and on the playing field. Rare.  Very Rare.  Very very very Rare.  These are both Gifts.

 

The best of the best.

 

Smart and Athletic.

 

God gives very few both.

 

Then, they had to work hard at both their Academics and their Sports.

 

There is no question that Coach Kirby Paul Smart is special.

 

This is what the Press Release was trying to say, but did a poor job of it.  I had to look it up. I thought I remembered this when he was here 1998.  I certainly remembered it about Fran Tarkenton, Matt Stinchcomb, Jon Stinchcomb, Kirby Smart, Gordan Beckham, Drew Butler, Alec Kessler, Chad Kessler, Ty Frix, Bill Stanfill, Kevin McClee, Aaron Murray, Jeff Pyburn, Kelly Miller, Coco Miller, and Terry Hoage.

 

We will continue to excel with Coach Kirby Paul Smart Academic All-America UGA, 1st Team All-State AAAA Bainbridge High Football Baseball Basketball 3-time 3-sport Letterman, 1st Team All-SEC Georgia Bulldogs Defensive Back DB, Captain Georgia 4-Years SEC Academic Honor Roll, and Christian married to our own Lady Bulldogs Mary Beth Lycett Smart who before Sunday was the more famous of their family !  BMOC Bainbridge Georgia Most Famous son after Governor Marvin Griffin Army Brigadier General Big Man on Campus.

 

He is BMOC now !

His Dad, Head Football Coach Bainbridge High School Sonny Smart, said to him this week that he will have to get off the porch and run with the Big Dawgs Now !

 

That is what his Dad said to him this week.

 

As you can see, Kirby Smart has ALWAYS run with the Big Dawgs.

 

Kirby told Sonny this !

 

I thought I always had been running with the Big Dawgs, Dad ?

 

I am certain over time, that those of you still talking about his predecessor 12 days’ later, such as Bernie yet again today will soon realize we are ALL All-In behind Kirby Smart !  And, why !

The Best of the Best and why I cry when I talk about him too : I am just very proud of Coach Kirby Paul Smart.

 

You should listen to this Chuck Dowdle Interview of Coach Kirby Paul Smart :
