    Ben is opting out to focus on his grades like he did last year.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again - players opting out is only a problem if we don't make the playoffs. Make the playoffs, play for a Natty, and we don't have this conversation at the University of Georgia...Finish the drill and stop giving me excuses every season.

    GO DAWGS!!

    I'm glad these guys are going ahead and making their decisions public. It certainly helps with knowing where you need to be on signing day.

    Good luck to all of the guys moving on and will enjoy watching all of them in the NFL.

    We are proud of you, we just aren't proud of your grammar. Best of luck to all of these Dawgs!

    Just flipped by the florida-oklahoma Cotton Bowl. Gators had 7 opt outs hahaha, and look average without anyone to bail out Trask . The Only SEC team I won't cheer for, regardless of their opponent. GoDAWGS!

    Anyone know if Mike Griffith"s posterior will require surgery after Coach Kirby Smart put that bruising hit on him the other day? Chip Towers never recovered from his hit!

    So, from watching Fla play without their starting receivers makes them look kind of mundane. Kind of like Fromm throwing to Landers, Bush, and anybody not named Cager or Pickens last year. Glad to finally have some decent receivers. I think BAMA has or will have 4 go in the 1st round the last 2 season combined. Think on that for a while, oh, and a QB and RB to boot. Not to mention 6 - 1st string All- Americans this year. An embarrassment of riches.

    And yet, we supposedly recruit on par with them? Then why the disparity come ALL American and NFL draft time and Bowl time? Could be coaching and development , or just not hitting on the right dudes in recruiting. I guess all 4 and 5 star recruits aren't the same, apparently. Their dudes just better than ours.

    I don't give a rats ass how good you are, how good others think you are, or much less, how good you think you are, if you have not embraced the concept of TEAM first during your time at UGA, you are a loser. No amount of BS cliches poorly written or eloquent can excuse your deficits fore you have identified yourself as a "me first" player and if I were an owner of an NFL team you would never be considered.

    College football continues to get more watered down by the year. And the more we treat players as professionals rather than amateur athletes, this trend will continue. When the NCAA allows for paying players for their likeness, the sport will become even more watered down. Over the past 15 years we have seen, by university spending alone, the entire league morph into a 4-5 team competition on who can win the national championship. It's the same old suspects year in, year out. 30 years ago, programs like GT, Wake Forest, West Virginia, Syracuse, etc, could put together championship runs. Not anymore. And it's such a travesty for the sport as a whole.

    Good luck to all that have played for the red and black this past season, given the circumstances of 2020, you all have done an outstanding job and the Dawgnation is very appreciative. All are DGD"S. Go DAWGS!

    I'm nobody, but I guess I can understand the injury--prone guys opting out to preserve the chance of at least the first nfl contract. The rest, I'm not a fan...
