Does UGA still have a chance for Auburn recruit? 

By Michael Carvell

Some things have changed since Jordan Colbert, a lifelong UGA fan, committed to Auburn over Florida State, Clemson and the Bulldogs last April.

First of all, there’s the hair: Colbert’s signature locks have been trimmed, and he explains why.

Secondly, UGA will have to do some catching up to land an official visit from the safety-linebacker from Griffin High School.

Right now, UGA is battling it out with UNC for the fifth and final visit. Griffin said he plans to take recruiting trips to Auburn, Tennessee, Florida State and Texas A&M.

Colbert, whose cousin (Griffin wide receiver Christian Owens) is committed to UGA, provides a lot of insight about his recruiting in the below video:

Johnny, just between you and me, I don't think anyone in school (including college), needs to smoke pot. You're there to learn and pot screws your short term memory up. Most jobs Drug test anyway, so kids graduating limit their employment options by even starting smoking. When did pot become so important to American Culture?

Bobbert,

you really think kids dying in hot cars is fine? You said it, own it.

BTW, stay away from School yards, you pervert!

Bobby,

So you're wishing a Techie would gun down a school full of kids? You are sick dude. Go take your meds Bob. You've slipped into LaLa land. We don't need your psychotic babbling on these pages. Grow up moron. You embarrass the entire Tech Community with your insane garbage. What a loser. You're like

the most despised troll on here and now you seem to have gone around the bend. Are you kookoo for Coco puffs? Get a grip boy and come back to reality before you really do something crazy like shoot up a schoolyard because they won't play with you either....

GeezeLouise, I said it was ill advised 15 times! What do you want me to do, call his Mom and tell on him?

caryd,

You and Bobby, have made a big deal out of one comment made by one guy today. I expect it from Boob, but not so much from you. Let it go....

gtcaryd,

my real side? Not really sure what you're referring to, but have you looked into the mirror lately? Seems like a lot of guff from another Techfan in another UGA recruiting story. Pretty sure I didn't see GT mentioned anywhere in the story, yet here you are questioning my character, lol. Maybe you should "get real"...

Hey, I told you, it's a blog, get over it. Get in WB's case, for all of the crapola he's brought to the blog. You guys like to poke us, and then holler for the rulebook when a Dawgfan says something questionable. I'm usually careful about what I say, so I don't really care about trolls getting their feelings hurt. You come in here looking for a fight and get a little dirt on you. I think it's kinda funny and I have been known to instigate, agitate and propagate. This blog has entirely too many bugs, so it's time to fumigate...

Then, we wouldn't have been able to read your pithy comment!

OK, I have to put some ribs on. Y'all play nice. Go Dawgs!

Well, one day I may even defend you Bob... (if you would just come to the light!)

I love the way Bobby infers that I have made comments about kids dying. I actually said that it was ill advised for my friend (The_Real_KJ,to have said it., but it was said as an attempt at humor, not in the way Poor ol Bobby framed it. Bobby's a Drama Queen!

Willie, did you know that elephants are the only mammal that can't jump? Didn't they do a movie about that?

gtcaryd,

@Jack5150 Young college kids smoking pot is not news worthy, most young people smoke some pot sometime or another. It's like a federal law. Post me something when they legalize it.

@keendaddy Saying it was ill advised is basically saying I know the statement was a ridiculous low class statement but im friends with the guy so let me see if I can defend him without really defending him. If you guys think kids dying in cars is funny and should be used in a joking manner then that is fine. Maybe you will get really lucky and some former Tech grad will gun down a school full of children. There will be so many dead kids your sick mind will be happy for weeks.

@keendaddy You are defending a crass, insulting statement by one of the guys we talk to everyday. You and i both know you should have at least saved comment. As Gump said, that's all i have to say about this.

@keendaddy Keen, that's the point. There is no correct way to frame it. Don't you get that?

@keendaddy That wasn't an ill advised comment. It was a straight up sick and repulsive comment. There is no legitimate reason to joke about the death of a child when trying to trash talk on an internet blog. The fact that you supported him and his making fun of the dead kid reflects on you as much as it does him.

This and that...

Ledbetter just might flip to UGA within the coming weeks

Godwin will stick with UGA with the nice move of signing is sister to BB scholly

UGA is a major player with 2016 QB Jacob Eason along with Notre Dame with Bama dropping a little due to the commit o Barnett a week or so back. Eason is the truth.

Hands down, the most asinine statement uttered on the blog. Seek help Bob....

That's right, gt gets the bottom knocked out in Athens Ga.

How long can you pay this guy? Gt should be top 4 in acc every season.

Nobody on here has the vaguest idea whether any other blogger is serious when they post so get over yourself. Few posters exceed the tons of onesided BS that you share with us. I don't know you and you don't know me just like the rest of the bloggers we are A L L    S H O O T I N G    I N    T HE    D A R K  so either grow a pair and act like an adult  or find a   N E W    H O B B Y!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@KeepOnSmilingWetWillie 

LOL! The new Georgia insider... you never answered my post surgery question about Mrs WetWillie.

2016 QB Jacob Eason will be attending Dawg Night July 18th... due to the amount of players (600) that attended last years camp, this years Dawg Night will actually begin Friday AM for the underclassmen (Fr & Soph) while the upper classes (JR & SR) will participate in the Friday night camp... while some players from both camps might be asked to stay the night and continue the next day on Saturday... Jacob Eason plans to come in Thursday evening (7/17) and stay in Athens until Sunday (7/20).

The NCAA recruiting dead period starts today and will run through July 13th... the only big event that will take place during this dead period will be The Opening July 5th through the 10th at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton Oregon...

Ledbetter will flip before august

Godwin was sticking anyway

Georgia is the team to beat with Eason.  Might be a done deal after dawgnite.  Big Ben Cleveland and Jacob Eason will be huge early commits for the 2016 class.

Godwin was as much Bama as UGA when JP got the sister the deal. Your staff knew that as well.

He definitely didn't break any laws so what do you plan to do about it????? Ask him to run the stadium steps 50 times a day for a year, I f he tells us he has completed the aforesaid running

we will never know if he is honest because he is a ghost

and  N O B O D Y on here knows what he/she/it looks like.

Probably not Gtcaryd ...

To be fair I've seen you get somewhat upset about things said about your family on

here...I've also seen you stick up for (and joke about it) when Slawdawg does the

same exact thing...

@Grant1296 You show me anything resembling making a reference to the murder of a child, and if he ever admits to doing it i hope he doesn't get the night-night drug. I hope he gets 30 minutes to life in prison. Shank time!

Grant1296
Grant1296

I agree with that 100% Gtcaryd ...

The problem is when these guys are getting Trolled every time they post....

Sometimes things get said (or worse typed on a blog) that the person

Really doesn't mean.

I don't know that for sure...like snaggle said none of us really knows each

other..
