    After 50+ years of watching the Dawgs, among others....I just always assumed "Injury Bug" was the nickname given to the hardest hitting defender on UGA's defense. For instance...[Jalen "Injury Bug" Carter]...or David "Injury Bug" Pollack. Lmao

    Thanks Navy...I appreciate the thought and kind words. And, you have some outstanding insights, yourself.

    But, let me be clear....I'm not some perpetual optimist or part-time Homer...talkin'-up the Dawgs. UGA has probably never had a more critical "Fan", than I have been over the years. I've got a few broken TV's, Remote Controls and Phones to prove it. Lol

    What I'm seeing in Athens, right now...is beyond anything I've witnessed in the College ranks. Kirby has built the equivalent of a Military Special Ops Unit made up entirely of some of the Nation's best Athletes, Football Players...and, Human Beings. Each one of those guys, is capable of playing the game at the highest levels...but, it goes beyond that, to a mind-set.

    Kirby was well on his way to building this "UGA Culture" at Alabama, before he decided to return to Athens and apply what he's learned, at his Alma Mater. At Bama...Nick Saban was the "strategist", CEO and "X's and O's guy"...while Kirby was the heart and soul of their "Player-Driven Winning Culture" . Kirby brought that "Culture" to Athens with him, after he perfected it in Tuscaloosa.

    IMO......The rest is "History"....and, so is The Tide's so-called Dynasty. There aren't many Coaches out there, with Smart's "feel" for the game and the locker-room. While most of the paid gumflappers are focusing on "statistics", the "hero" or the "superstar"...Kirby's focus is on discipline, communication, football excellence from every player and cross-training...at every position.

    For instance...the Dawgs have had 9 or 10 Defenders, drafted in the 1st "2 or 3 rounds" of the last 2 drafts. Yet...Will Anderson was "the best defender/player in CFB"...according to the Hype Specialists. When are people gonna stop buying the crap they've been selling?. Lol

    I said a few years ago, that Kirby was going to force people to redefine some terms. Like Tight End, Running Back and Wide Receiver. On Kirby's team...WR's do more than "receive",...TE's do more than block...and, RB's do more than "run" the ball. A lot of those guys are interchangeable...because they are "athletic", disciplined and well coached...."Football Players".
