Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post SEC Media Days

Wednesday July 26, 2006

The SEC media days begin today. Those who have more or less stayed tuned in to the Dawg news in the offseason shouldn’t be surprised by much that comes out of the Georgia camp. It’s sometimes entertaining to see what the other programs have to say, but the net effect is usually the depth of analysis from a preseason magazine. It’s an important annual milestone, though – practice is right around the corner! Here’s about what we can expect the conventional wisdom to produce:

  • Georgia will have a new quarterback. That can’t be good.
  • Quentin Moses can play ball.
  • Georgia has running backs.
  • Some kind of human-interest story. Did you know David Greene and David Pollack were roommates?
  • Lip service will be paid to Mark Richt and Georgia’s recent accomplishments, but they will still pick Florida, LSU, and Auburn as the favorites.

Some might wonder why quarterback incumbent and senior leader Joe Tereshinski III wasn’t one of the seniors that will accompany Richt (Nick Jones and Moses will be this year’s player representatives), but last year Gerald Anderson and Max Jean-Gilles made the trip instead of D.J. Shockley. Don’t read much into it – and appreciate the chance to get some linemen rare time in the spotlight. If anything, this might be a good debut and introduction for Jones who could certainly propel himself into the NFL draft with a solid senior season at center.
