  • What do you get when an all-time Georgia great breaks down the film of future Bulldog Makiya Tongue? Did Terrence Edwards keep it real amid our “Reel Talk” on DawgNation? He sure did. Terrence Edwards joined DawgNation this week on “Before the Hedges” to break down 4-star UGA commit Makiya Tongue. (Brandon Adams/DawgNation) At the risk of this blog intro sounding so corny that Del Monte would not even can it (hat tip to a childhood friend for that one), we will move on. The DawgNation crew teamed up with the man who still owns all the UGA all-time and single-season receiving records worth having. That’s despite playing his final season in 2002. Edwards still holds the records for: Career receptions (204) Single-season record for receiving yards (1,004) Career receiving yards (3,093) Most TD receptions in a game (3; 4-way tied for the all-time mark) Single-season record for TD receptions (11; 2002) Most career TD receptions (30) Most receptions by a senior (59) He offers up some interesting conversation in regard to Tongue. The 4-star prospect from Louisiana rates as the nation’s No. 8 ATH and the No. 209 overall prospect on the 247Sports Composite rankings. RELATED: Check out the DawgNation Invasion profile for 4-star commit Makiya Tongue Tongue – the son of former NFL veteran Reggie Tongue – does bring a diverse set of skills to the table. He’s fast and physical and the “Reel Talk” session in the featured video above does show off his ball skills. The Louisana resident chose the Bulldogs on the day following the grand west end zone “Reveal” back on July 29. He’s part of the nation’s third-ranked recruiting class for 2019 on the 247Sports Team Composite rankings. He will start out at WR at UGA, but who knows where his talents will take him from there.

  • ATHENS — Kirby Smart said he would rather his team learn their lessons while the No. 8-ranked Bulldogs are winning, but sometimes a loss can have a greater effect. Georgia players met with the media earlier this week and were asked by DawgNation to share what they learned from last Saturday’s 36-16 loss at LSU.   One day at a time. #ATD #GeorgiaFootball pic.twitter.com/Q9HFHyjuod — Georgia Football (@FootballUGA) October 17, 2018   The Bulldogs (6-1, 4-1 SEC) have a bye this week before a showdown with SEC East Division co-leader and No. 11-ranked Florida (6-1, 4-1) at 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 27 in Jacksonville, Fla. Here’s what each of the players who Smart selected to speak to the media at Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall said when asked what they learned against LSU: Senior safety J.R. Reed: “You just have to keep working, you’re gonna lose some, you’re gonna win some, you’re not going to beat   everybody by 30, you’re not gonna to stop every play. “You’ve got to bring your `A’ game every time you play in the SEC, and I mean every Saturday you got to play your best.” Junior tight end Charlie Woerner: “That everything matters, the little things matter. You can’t relax, you have to do everything right during practice, off the field, in the locker room because it all adds up. “You do one little thing wrong in practice it will lead to a false start or a holding call in the game, so you want to make sure you are always on your toes.” Sophomore left guard Solomon Kindley: “Humble, you have to stay humble, keep being us, and keep doing what we’ve got to do.” Junior linebacker Tae Crowder: “We made mistakes as a team, it’s a team effort, we just have to do better on defense and offense, and come together as a team and click. There were a lot of small things to clean up, but we’ll be pretty good.” Georgia LB Tae Crowder Georgia OG Solomon Kindley       The post WATCH: Georgia football players share lessons from LSU defeat, preview Florida appeared first on DawgNation.
  • Owen Condon. Azeez Ojulari. Zamir White. Kearis Jackson. Justin Fields. Rian Davis. Now add the name Ryland Goede to that list. At first glance, that looks like a pretty sporty list of elite prospects who chose to commit and eventually sign with the University of Georgia. That’s true, but it is also a list of the future Bulldogs of late that also suffered a season-ending injury during their senior years of high school football. Goede was befallen, like many of the future Bulldogs on that list, by a knee injury. The nation’s No. 6 tight end off the 247Sports Composite rankings for 2019 is already out of surgery today to repair a torn ACL and a slight tear in his meniscus. He also sprained his medial collateral ligament. Ryland Goede (far left) chats with his parents out at The Nike Opening in Texas. They were both athletes in college, too. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation) Look for him to be ready to go by the start of fall camp in 2019. “The plan is to be back fully by fall camp,” said Goede, who is the all-time leader in catches, yards and touchdowns for the Kennesaw Mountain program. The 6-foot-6.5, 245-pound senior from Kennesaw Mountain suffered the injury two Fridays ago against North Cobb Christian. The three-sport standout (baseball, golf) went up for a jump ball and came down the wrong way. His knee was not in good shape. He knew that immediately. “It was the worst pain I’ve ever felt,” Goede said. The injury has sidelined Goede’s plans to play spring sports at Kennesaw Mountain. He now plans to make the move early to UGA. Look for him to enroll early in January of 2019. Goede will now be able to rehab the knee under the care of the UGA sports medicine staff. There’s a growing legion of those Bulldogs who will be able to say “Rebuilt by Ron” as far as their return to the field. That’s a nod to the well-respected care provided by UGA Director of Sports Medicine Ron Courson and his staff. Courson would have the Nick Chubb and Todd Gurley knees as the latest examples atop an impressive patient history. The future tight end was in good spirits after his procedure on Thursday. He was well enough to tweet. Surgery went great! Thanks everyone for the prayers pic.twitter.com/m6naFmX3x5 — Ryland Goede (@rylandgoede10) October 18, 2018 Check out Ryland Goede’s senior film so far in 2019 Goede is a viable athlete. He was tremendous pop on the diamond at first base and does plan to play baseball for UGA. He’s also very long off the tee box and is known to go below 80 on the golf course. He was named to the Perfect Game 16-and-under All-American team (second team) earlier in his high school career. Physicality won’t be a problem for Goede in Athens. He’s been a willing an effective two-way player at defensive end in his prep career for the Mustangs. He was even able to harass and sack Fields during their matchup in the Harrison-Kennesaw Mountain spring game back in 2017. The senior was selected to the Nike “Opening” national finals showcase earlier this year in Texas. He joined 165 of this nation’s top high school prospects at that elite invitation-only event. Check out his senior film below. The post UGA commit Ryland Goede eyes fall return after season-ending knee injury appeared first on DawgNation.
  • BIRMINGHAM — Georgia basketball coach Tom Crean was teaching until the final whistle of Thursday’s shoot-around at Gene Bartow Arena in downtown Birmingham, just hours before the opening tip. RELATED: UGA basketball coach Tom Crean on edge “This is their first time with me and with us in a game day situation, just like last night was their first time with us in the night before a game, and yesterday was the first time in the day before the game,” Crean said. “We’re not there yet, and that’s not coach speak, that’s reality, but we are making strides and it will be fun to see where we stand tonight.” The Bulldogs exhibition opener tips off at   8 p.m. (Eastern) at Alabama-Birmingham’s Gene Bartow Arena against the Conference USA Blazers. The game is not televised but an audio broadcast of the game includes a pregame show at 7:45 p.m. and can be found at GeorgiaDogs.com. RELATED: Tom Crean says Georgia basketball not close to being ready for game “We’re trying to make sure we get the keys for us that maybe we haven’t spent as much time on yet, but that we need to really understand that we need to make a part of our identity,” Crean said. “That’s our transition defense, that’s our ability to control the dribble better, to challenge shots without fouling and then get all five guys rebounding,” he said. “And then offensively, can we stay true to our spacing, can we keep cutting hard, can get good looks, can we deliver the ball on time and on target, can we get to the offensive glass.” Georgia basketball coach Tom Crean The post WATCH: Georgia basketball coach Tom Crean shares ‘reality’ of exhibition opener appeared first on DawgNation.
