Georgia Sports News

  • Welcome to  Good Day, UGA , your one-stop shop for Georgia football news and takes. Check us out every weekday morning for everything you need to know about Georgia football, recruiting, basketball and more. Major Georgia target and 4-star CB D.J. Daniel will announce his commitment today Georgia, which already owns the No. 1 recruiting class in the country per the 247Sports Composite, could be adding another impressive piece to its 2019 haul on Thursday, as 4-star cornerback DJ Daniel. And DawgNation will have live coverage throughout the day. Daniel is set to announce his commitment at 2 p.m. ET, live from Georgia Military College in Milledgeville, Ga.. DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell will be at the announcement ceremony to bring updates as they happen live. Brandon Adams will be back in the studio to provide reaction to the news, whether it be good or bad for Georgia. You can catch all the live coverage on DawgNation’s Facebook, Youtube or Twitter page. DawgNation’s coverage of the event will begin at approximately 1:40 p.m. The 4-star cornerback is the No. 12 JUCO player in the 2019 and the No. 3 overall cornerback prospect. Georgia’s most recent commitment, 4-star linebacker Jermaine Johnson, also comes from the JUCO ranks. 2018 signee Tramel Walthour is also playing at the junior college level this year as well. Among the other schools vying for Daniel’s commitment are Kentucky and South Carolina. While Kentucky might seem like more of a long shot, South Carolina is worth watching here. The Gamecocks have shown that they can pull a defensive back that Georgia wants out of the state, as the Gamecocks did so back in the 2017 recruiting cycle with Jamyest Williams. Daniel is originally from Griffin, Georgia. Last season he racked up 26 tackles and 3 interceptions for Georgia Military College. Should he pick Georgia, he would give Georgia 19 commitments in the class, with 17 of them being of the 4-star or better variety. Daniel has made multiple visits to Georgia and all nine of the crystal predictions made for Daniel are towards Georgia. An update from Mike Bobo On Wednesday afternoon, former Georgia quarterback and offensive coordinator Mike Bobo posted an update on his status as he remains in the hospital following some numbness in his feet. “I want to express my sincere appreciation for the outpouring of care, concern and prayers that I an my family have received,” Bobo said in a statement he posted on Twitter. “Lainie and I, and our Children are extremely grateful for this support and for the great medical care that I continue to receive, and for the great medical care that I continue to receive. “I am currently in the process of a multiple-day treatment for a peripheral neuropathy and continue to be encouraged by the results of the on-going medical testing.” pic.twitter.com/0P81gjsGw8 — Coach Mike Bobo (@CoachBobo_CSU) August 15, 2018 Kirby Smart, a former teammate of Bobo’s, weighed in on the matter following Wednesday’s practice. And he seemed pretty confident that Bobo would be back on the sideline in no time. “If I know Mike Bobo, whatever he’s dealing with,” Smart told reporters. “He was built rock-solid. I know he’ll fight his way through it.” Smart added that he had been in contact with Bobo. Colorado State opens its 2018 season on Aug. 25 against Hawaii while Georgia opens its schedule a week later against Austin Peay. Your laugh of the day If you can watch this without laughing or falling out of your chair, kudos to you. Because of all the possible hot takes to give, this one from Brian Jones of CBS Sports is downright comical. CBS Sports asked a number of panelists to make their predictions for the College Football Playoff this season. And Brian Jones said that he thought Florida, yes the Florida Gators who went 4-7 a year ago and lost 42-7 to Georgia last season, would not only make the College Football Playoff, but also do so as the No. 2 seed. Check out his full comments below. . @JonesN4mo's College Football Playoff predictions: 1. @ClemsonFB 2. @GatorsFB 3. @MSU_Football 4. @UW_Football pic.twitter.com/CVzYiLVI5Q — CBS Sports Network (@CBSSportsNet) August 16, 2018 Florida is under new leadership in Dan Mullen, but Florida doesn’t exactly scream of a team that seems destined for the College Football Playoff. For one, it still doesn’t have a quarterback, something that has been an ongoing issue at Florida for a while. Of the CBS Sports analysts who made their predictions, only one of them, Randy Cross, picked Georgia to make the Playoff. And he also had Alabama making the College Football Playoff, which is something DawgNation’s Brandon Adams has noticed happening quite frequently among the national media. Georgia and Florida play this year on Oct. 27 in Jacksonville.

  • ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Braves and their manager had plenty of reasons to be unhappy even after completing their first four-game sweep of the Miami Marlins since 2006. Seeing slugging rookie Ronald Acuna Jr., who had been on a home-run streak, hit by Jose Urena's first pitch led to two melees on the field and more unrest in the clubhouse. Dansby Swanson filled the power void left by Acuna's exit, hitting a two-run homer that led the Braves to a 5-2 win over Miami on Wednesday night. Acuna, who had hit leadoff homers in the last three games and homered in five straight games overall, didn't get a chance to extend the streak. Urena plunked him on the left elbow with a fastball. The Braves said X-rays on the elbow were negative and results of further tests would be announced on Thursday. Benches and bullpens for both teams emptied onto the field twice after the pitch. No punches were thrown. Urena and Braves manager Brian Snitker were ejected. 'He's been swinging the ball incredibly well, obviously,' Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman said of Acuna. 'It just makes no sense. It was just completely classless on Jose Urena's part.' Snitker, Freeman and other Braves players believe Urena intended to hit Acuna. Marlins manager Don Mattingly said the umpires also believed Urena tried to hit the Braves rookie, but Mattingly was upset his pitcher was not ejected until Snitker came on the field for the second time. 'If you think he's done it on purpose, then throw him out right away,' Mattingly said. Urena said he was only trying to throw the pitch inside. 'I made the bad pitch,' Urena said. 'I missed my spot inside on the corner the way I wanted to start with him. I tried to get inside to move him.' Paul Nauert, the third-base umpire and crew chief, said the decision to eject Urena was delayed because 'we wanted to make sure as a crew we were all on the same page. ... When we got together as a crew, it was decided by the crew that yes, he should have been ejected. So that's what we did.' An angry Snitker was near the front of the line of Braves players charging out of the dugout toward the mound. His emotions started to rise again following the game. 'I'm not sure I've ever felt like that in a baseball uniform,' Snitker said, adding Acuna 'didn't deserve that. ... I've had three hours to calm down and all of a sudden I'm not real good right now.' Acuna became the 11th batter to be hit by a pitch from Urena this season, tied for the most in the National League. Acuna left the game in the second inning. He took his position in left field and then walked off the field. Snitker said Acuna had cramping in his forearm when he left the game. Because he was forced from the game after being hit by the pitch in his only plate appearance, Acuna will be eligible to continue his three-game streak of leadoff homers in his next game. Kevin Gausman (7-9) allowed two runs in six innings. A.J. Minter pitched a perfect ninth for his 11th save in 12 opportunities. Elieser Hernandez, who replaced Urena, allowed two hits in three scoreless innings. The Braves trailed 2-0 before scoring three runs off left-hander Jarlin Garcia (1-2) in the fourth. Charlie Culberson, who doubled, scored from third on Ender Inciarte's grounder to first base. After Tyler Flowers walked, Swanson cleared the center field wall with his 10th homer. Culberson had three hits, including two doubles. Inciarte, who had a run-scoring single in the sixth, drove in two runs. Starlin Castro led off Miami's fourth with his 10th homer into the seats in right field. TRAINER'S ROOM Braves LHP Max Fried, on the 10-day disabled list with a left groin strain, will make a rehab start for Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday - 'quicker than we originally thought,' Snitker said. ... LHP Sam Freeman (left shoulder inflammation) threw a scoreless inning for Gwinnett on Tuesday and is scheduled to throw again on Thursday. STREAKING The NL East-leading Braves remained two games ahead of Philadelphia. They have won five straight after completing their first four-game sweep of the Marlins since May 15-18, 2006 at Turner Field. The last-place Marlins have lost five straight and eight of nine. BIG LEAGUE DEBUT Miami left fielder Austin Dean, a 2012 fourth-round draft pick called up from Triple-A New Orleans before the game, was held without a hit in his major league debut. UP NEXT Marlins: Miami, off Thursday, opens a weekend series at slumping Washington on Friday night. RHP Dan Straily (4-5. 4.42) has a 3.86 ERA in two starts against the Nationals this season. Braves: RHP Julio Teheran (8-7, 4.33) will look to continue his success against the Rockies in Thursday night's opener of a four-game series. Teheran is 5-1 with a 2.21 ERA in nine career starts against Colorado. ___ More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
  • ATHENS — Kirby Smart knows what his Georgia football players are going through. Smart once practiced on the same fields and faced the same sort of challenges when he was an All-SEC safety for the Bulldogs in the 1990s. Back then, there were double sessions — and no climate controlled indoor facility. Smart took mercy on his players on Wednesday, taking them out of the hot sun and inside William Porter Payne and Porter Otis Payne Indoor Facility. “ They’re starting to hit that camp wall where it’s like ‘Coach, I’ve done this, I’ve hit this guy a lot,’ “ Smart said. “That’s when you worry about complacency or guys getting bored. So we changed some things around today, had good competition, kind of changed the order of practice and tried to place some of the emphasis on special teams. “I think we had good juice.” Smart said that wasn’t the case in practice on Monday or Tuesday. That could explain why Smart was patrolling the Tuesday practice like a mad hornet. “I didn’t think we had good juice on Monday and Tuesday, a lot of poor me, school starting and a lot of excuses,” Smart said. Wednesday marked the first time Smart moved the team inside without weather being part of the reason. “It’s easy to have good spirits inside,” Smart explained. “We tried to change practice up today and have a lot of competitive drills an environments, kind of a change of pace.” Georgia football coach Kirby Smart   The post WATCH: Georgia football coach Kirby Smart discusses hitting ‘camp wall’ and quarterbacks appeared first on DawgNation.
  • ATHENS — Georgia football has an ongoing competition at quarterback, that much has been made clear throughout the offseason. And while Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart didn’t give any indication of when he might name a starter, he did remark on how good sophomore Jake Fromm has looked in fall camp. RELATED: Kirby Smart appears unconcerned by comments from Justin Fields’ father “His understanding of what we’re trying to do offensively, his step now is he knows what the defense is doing now before the defense does it, especially against us, who he goes against every day,” Smart said following Wednesday’s practice. “So his development has been good because he played all these games. He understands where the weakness is in each defense and he can exploit that. He has really good command of the huddle and has good presence.” Fromm was the FWAA Freshman All-American quarterback selection last season after leading the Bulldogs to an SEC championship and national championship game appearance. RELATED: Georgia receiver raves about Jake Fromm’s play in camp Incoming freshman Justin Fields has displayed great talent in practices, and Smart and offensive coordinator Jim Chaney have both been complimentary. But Fromm, it seems, is making the best use of his SEC game experience. RELATED: Kirby Smart details QB play in Georgia football scrimmage “He can draw us offsides,” Smart remarked on Wednesday. “He’s doing a good job from a communication standpoint. He always did. I just think he knows the inside and outside of everything a little better now.”   The post Georgia football coach Kirby Smart heaps praise on quarterback Jake Fromm appeared first on DawgNation.
