Can UGA catch Tennessee for top Georgia OL prospect? 

By Michael Carvell

McEachern High School’s Chuma Edoga was one of the most impressive performers at Sunday’s Nike camp.

In fact, Edoga performed so well that he could soon take over the No. 1 spot for the state’s top prospect on the offensive line.

Edoga, as always, gave a candid interview (must see it) after the camp.

His four leaders are Tennessee at No. 1, USC at No. 2, UGA at No. 3, and Stanford at No. 4

  • Why is Tennessee his leader?
  • What about his quote to 247sports that his mother “right now does not really like “ Tennessee? Has that changed?
  • Which college coaches does his mother like? (Good news for UGA here)
  • How was his recent visit to UGA?
  • What does Edoga like about UGA?
  • Will Edoga still commit on his birthday (May 25)?
  • And what about that Auburn baseball cap he’s wearing? Is there a hidden meaning?

@POAD2013 You want some facts about how your GT football is below average in the ACC? Here ya go:


Ok last season you finished 7-6 after finishing 7-7 the year before. In 2013 10 teams in the ACC finished with the same record OR BETTER than your Bugs did. 


Those teams are: 

Florida State (14-0)

Clemson (11-2)

Syracuse (7-6)

Boston College (7-6)

Maryland (7-6) 

Duke (10-4)

Virginia Tech (8-5)

 North Carolina State (3-9)

 And Virginia. (2-10)


ALL FACTS

So you LIKE the COACHES and they are your BUDDIES. Do any of those COACHES know a damn thing about your choice of major. Do those COACHeS want to HELP you get your  Aerospace/ Aeronautical Engineering Degree or move you to TURF Management?


Do your RESEARCH and LEARN WHO the PROFESSORS are at the BEST AE colleges. See what the PROFESSORS are going to do to HELP you make your EDUCATIONAL Dreams come true.


The average NFL career is 3.2 years.

Of his choices IF he can go to STANFORD then the SEC...Slightly Educated Conference.....are a JOKE.

Aerospace Engineering? HAHAHA UGa has NOTHING to offer you. The VOLS and AE major? You are kidding right? You think UT AE major impresses ANYBODY? 

Kid do your RESEARCH and LEARN who has the Aerospace Degree that people RESPECT.

Call the TECH player SEAN BEDFORD. He was a Walk-on, worked to be an OL starter, go his Aerospace Degree, Played ball in Spain and is at Florida getting his Law Degree and has a Radio Jig.

UGa & Tennessee have little to offer you in your EDUCATIONAL choice.

Richt seems to prefer a large number of qb's,rb's,wr's over linemen for some strange reason.

@DawgGoneItDo the last 5 years and  How has TECH ranked? How many times is TECH playing for the Coastal? How many times has TECH finished #3 or better....TRY again you IDIOT.

@POAD2013  How do you know what it's like in a Tech classroom? You didn't go to Tech. You're just speaking because you're a fan of the football team. If not for that, you wouldn't brag about Tech being so "grand" of an institution. How would you know

DawgGoneIt
DawgGoneIt

@POAD2013  Leave it to a Tech fan to try and use education as some kind of shield like other schools don't have great education programs. UGA is a great educational program as well as athletic program. Stanford is a great educational program (way better than Tech) and they have a good football team. What's TECH's excuse? You can't throw that education mess up everytime because eventually it doesn't hold much water.

@POAD2013  says a lot  about the pathetic  state of Gt football when hometown kid wants to major in  Aerospace/ Aeronautical Engineering and  doesn't even consider GT.

@tomkat1111  UGA recruits the very best linemen in the country every single year.  Where kids end up going isn't indicative at all of UGA's interest.

@POAD2013 @DawgGoneIt  Do you really believe you deserved to play for the coastal with a 6-6 record in 2012? You lost that game to fall to 6-7 and actually made a bowl game. Wow.

@DawgGoneIt

I KNOW. I dated a GT Architectural Engineering student for 3 of her years at TECH. My Dad and Granddad are TECH grads. I have been attending Tech Games & Camps since 74. I have friends that Graduated from TECH. I know more about The INSTITUTE than you do.

@DawgGoneIt HEY Dumb AZZ he said what he wants to STUDY and UGa doesn't have it. You are too STUPID to even understand what the kids said and what I posted. You are an IDIOT. Stanford is not way better than TECH. Stop running your mouth when you don't know of what you type.

POAD2013

@Dawgilama the kid is JOKING that he wants to be an AE or he would have done the WORK to KNOW UGa and UT have NOTHING to offer him as an AE compare to TECH and Stanford. The SEC wants Football Players and EDUCATION is in the bottom 10 of what they will help him do.

He knows if he wants to get an AE degree that TECH is his best choice. I think he KNOWS the TRUTH! TECH will not pass him along to get that degree just because he plays football.

At THE INSTITUTE he will have to SURVIVE, STRIVE and SUCCEED in the classroom and the Professors could careless about what he does outside of the classroom much less on the Gridiron. That can't be said at the SEC schools.

@FireSomebody @tomkat1111  Maybe true, but are we recruiting them hard enough? recent trends lead me to believe we're not. I don't have the exact numbers right in front of me right this second, but if I had to guess, I'd say our o-line signees over the past several years have been comprised mostly of 3 star recruits, and it shows. We haven't had a solid offensive line in awhile, and the ones that were supposed to be solid, underachieved. Of course, I'm a little biased and old school like that. I still believe most games are won and lost in the trenches, so if it were up to me, I'd definitely be making recruiting elite offensive lineman a priority over skill positions.

DawgGoneIt

@POAD2013 @DawgGoneIt  Tech is clearly not better than Florida State, Clemson, Virginia Tech, or Miami. Those 4 right there will always be better than you because they recruit on a whole other level than Tech. Now as we get down in to the 2nd tier, teams like Duke, North Carolina, Maryland, Boston College, Pitt, Syracuse, Tech, etc. You could make a strong argument that DUKE is on their way up the scale in the ACC with their 10-4 finish last season and even hung with Florida State for about a half in the ACC title game last season. Duke nearly beat Johnny Football and the Texas A&M Aggies in the Chic-Fil-A bowl last season after hanging 48 points up on A&M in a losing effort. I just don't see Tech as a big threat to anyone in the ACC especially up top. You'll never compete with Florida State, Clemson, Miami, or VA Tech.


As for UGA, we are the favorites to win the East. And when UGA isn't the favorite in the East, there are some issues. With the addition of Pruitt to an already good football team with an offense that can score at will, there's no reason to believe UGA won't be in the Dome again for the 3rd time in 4 seasons. We have the best tailback in America with a slew of weapons on O and a good QB ready for his chance. He even led a 20 point comeback against your beloved Jackets. 


Tech is irrelevant. Always has been. Always will be. Bug boy.

POAD2013
POAD2013

@DawgGoneIt you just PROVE the point. TECH is BETTER than the teams you mentioned and in the ACC than the teams you mentioned. Just a few year Hiccup like Vandy and USCe beating UGa. So pick a side of the argument and stick to it you IDIOT. Don't use stats to say UGa is better than those teams but use opposite facts to say TECH isn't better than the teams you picked.

DawgGoneIt
DawgGoneIt

@POAD2013 @DawgGoneIt  The overall series between UGA and SC is 47-17-2 in Georgia's favor! Spurrier arrived at SC in 2005 and has beaten UGA only 4 times since 2005. So do you know what the record would be for SC against UGA without Spurrier? 51-13-2 all time. That's pure ownage.

DawgGoneIt
DawgGoneIt

@POAD2013 @DawgGoneIt  Duke is better than Tech. You can't say Vandy is better than UGA because it's simply not the case. South Carolina is just now starting to compete with UGA on an even field. Before Spurrier, UGA owned SC and SC was an SEC afterthought. The playing field is JUST NOW starting to even. SC has never won an SEC title. Never. And they've won the East just ONCE. They lost to Auburn 56-10 in the 2010 SEC title game. They did not belong there.

POAD2013

@DawgGoneIt WRONG. Check the FACTS like you like to cry about South Carolina not being better than you MUTTS. You talk out of your Butt on every subject. PICK a side and stay with it. Duke is better than TECH then VANDY and USCe are better than UGa correct?

@POAD2013 @DawgGoneIt  I didn't even bring up the record UGA has over GT since Richt took over. Not once in my post as of right now said anything of the matter. You just brought it up. That's why you're so ate up with UGA envy because 1) we get the most publicity and you can't stand the fact that a school an hour and a half away owns you. 2) the 12-1 record is pretty for us but your 1-12 record vs. your in state rival makes you wanna puke. It would make me feel the same way.

@DawgGoneIt BUT all you have to hang your REDNECK HAT on is 11 of 12 against TECH.....LMMFAO....UGa is a Wannabe and thinks it is something more until the MUTTS actually start playing the games.................34 years and counting.

@POAD2013 @DawgGoneIt  We're a top 10 football team every single year it seems like. We're always in the discussion for the SEC East and we're pegged as the favorite AGAIN in the East this season for the 3rd straight season. GT will be lucky to finish 4th in their own division.

@POAD2013 @DawgGoneIt  Just because you played a team better than anyone doesn't mean anything. It's not like you play them every single year. Had you played them this season, it would have been over before halftime. You and I both know that.

@POAD2013 @DawgGoneIt  I'm sure you do because quite frankly. Tech is disgusting. You're the 3rd best institution in this state. Nobody wants to go to Tech to be quite honest with you. UGA is HEAD AND SHOULDERS above Tech in every aspect. TECH will NEVER AMOUNT to UGA! POINT. BLANK. PERIOD. I OWN YOU BOY!

DawgGoneIt

@POAD2013 @DawgGoneIt  So I'm supposed to believe that the team that physically beat up Oregon last season on OREGON'S HOME FIELD, would not beat a team like Tech who is not even top 40?! Oregon was a top 10 team at the time and Stanford wore them out. TECH is not a FOOTBALL SCHOOL. They will NEVER BE GOOD IN FOOTBALL! GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEAD!!! YOUR SCHOOL SUCKS!!! TECH IS NOT EVEN AVERAGE IN THE ACC!!! ACC!!!! 

POAD2013
POAD2013

@DawgGoneIt You think STANFORD is a better team than TECH? Well you think UGa is Elite. LOOK at the HIStORY. Stanford has had 5 good seasons. WOW they are a POWERHOUSE. They are about good as South Carolina Historically. Just give it a second and Vandy USCe and Stanford will be who they have historically been.

5 years a TRADITION does not make.

@POAD2013 @DawgGoneIt  Did you really just say that Stanford football is not better than Tech football? You're joking I hope. Put Stanford on the field and they would WEAR YOU OUT Physically and mentally. GT is a mentally weak football team with no leadership. That's why they finish 7-6 every year!

@POAD2013 @Dawgilama  If UGA is a pathetic football program, what the hell does that make Tech? Jesus Christ you're sippin on the lean a little bit too hard over there you drunk. Tech DOES NOT COMPETE WITH UGA!!! GET IT THROUGH YOUR FAT HEAD!!!!

@Dawgilama You are too STUPID to understand WHY there are few athletes taking a 5 year degree? WOW. Architectural and Aerospace Engineering are both 5 year degrees so WHY would many Athletes even attempt those degrees? Do you ANY CLUE the number of HOURS required in the LAB just to pass the classes needed to get those degrees? STFU unless you have a CLUE what it takes to even try to get in those degree programs much less to add the requirements of a SPORT on top of that.

@DawgGoneIt with that many yards we should have scored at least 48 points. One big run by Gurley and a run by Hicks along with our long garbage TD drive late in the game makes those stats deceiving. Watch the Games Kool aid Drinker!

@DawgGoneIt ....Was our OFFENSE the reason we lost?!! I think not!!! When you put up over 500 yards of offense and 35 points, you should win most of those contests if you have a defense with any kind of pulse!!!! ..........................

=====================


When BVG's D was stopping other teams then the Offensive Brain Trust of Richt and BOBO couldn't score enough to win either. It is ALWAY an EXCUSE as to WHY UGa is the GIRLS COLLEGE and Plantation where the ONLY teams that compete for CHAMPIONSHIPS  hear PANTIES.

It is ALWAYS an EXCUSE WHY UGa football is not SEC Elite

Make the Football stop wearing JOCK STRAPS and start wearing Panties and Liners and MAYBE just MAYBE they can find the National Championship game.

@Bubbatavious @DawgGoneIt  THEUS did not get schooled against Clemson. It was mostly KENARIOUS GATES #72 who got schooled by Vic Beasley for most of the night! Theus has not played left tackle since his senior year of high school. He'll get that chance now for UGA. He's more comfortable there. He was a 5-star left tackle. That's his position but he did not play it at UGA yet because when he got here, Kenarious Gates had already nailed it down after Cordy Glenn left!

@DawgGoneIt Yeah that offensive line couldn't get that much needed first down against Vandy..... Gurley got most of those yards on his on... Theus got schooled against Clemson too.. keep sippin that kool aid pal....

@bulldawg14 @FireSomebody @tomkat1111  John Theus was a 5-star recruit. Remember Brent Benedict? 4-star recruit. Zach DeBell was a 4-star recruit. Watts Dantzler, 4-star recruit. David Andrews is one of (if not the best) center in the SEC and he was a 3-star recruit. So was Ben Jones who is now a starter for the Houston Texans. In the 2014 recruiting class we signed Dyshon Sims, Kendall Baker, and Isaiah Wynn who are all 4 star recruits. UGA recruits quality linemen and they perform well once they get here. Good enough to break records and block for Gurley.
