    This news, along with spotty O line play means that the offense is now mediocre. Brock made everyone else better, especially Beck.

    So, Brock isn't Superman? I truly thought the guy was invincable. He's been that good!

    Those teams were far different from the Florida team right now. Where do I begin?

    Brock - Heal quickly and fully, as the Dawgs love you and need you for the playoffs. YES I believe we can make the playoffs without Brock, but think his return will be heralded and a lift.

    Hey Thx for that info !! So we have at least 3 scholarship TEs available. The silver lining such as it is will be they get solid experience for next year. Hoping Brock will recover fully and quickly and just in time to help the team go on to a 3Peat !! Go Dawgs !!

    Just painful reading this but it shouldn’t be a surprise with the way injuries have gone this season. To have the # of injuries, the timing of them, and the challenge of getting any consistency with the units, it is a testament to the coaches and the players to be where they are today. From the beginning, this has been a different season with the identity of the team not settled and it looks like it won’t be settled anytime soon. We will definitely have a roller coaster of a ride from now until season’s end and I’m sure hoping they don’t give me too many scares. Go DAWGS and get better soon Mr. Bowers.

    Spotty O line play? lol

    There’s one in every crowd.

    If Bowers has ankle surgery then he's likely done for the regular season. Maybe longer. Saturday may have been the last time we see him play for UGA. Wish him well.

    Mea Culpa Mike....your scuttlebutt is better than mine.....NEXT MAN UP for TE's and R's as it will take consistent elite play to fill the void. On the other hand, I'm glad the surgery is being done today....six weeks will be 11/27 ready for post season play.....given BB's commitment to excellence, his never quite attitude and his tenacious grip on always getting better....I think we'll see him before the 27th.

    P/S....Emmitt1959, I see you are a Freshman, so I'm letting your comment slide....just so you're informed, The Dawgs are not a One player sensation....that would be USC, Washington or Texas, we have an Offense and a Defense made up of ALPHA DAWGS! Brock will be missed but the void will be filled!

    I know it's wishful dreaming.....But, maybe, just maybe the time off would maybe get him to maybe consider coming back for his senior year??????

    P/SS....Given the injury situation The Dawgs have had to over come this year.....our so called weak schedule BS HAS NO VALIDITY!!!!!

    OL definitely was/is spotty this season but, surprisingly, played better AFTER AMims was injured and Truss moved to RT.

    The biggest worry is the defense. This is not a championship D. With the current D, 50/50 to win the SECe and 60/40 against winning the the SEC. That was BEFORE BB's got hurt.

    CKS will need to find some coaching magic(and no more injuries) to win the SEC this year.

    I had never heard of tightrope surgery till this year and now I hear it everywhere. I remember when a sprained ankle meant wrap it up, don't over do it and then go slow and you'd be back in a couple of weeks (in time for florida). Surgery for a sprained ankle.... How times have changed.

    And no, I am not criticizing. I am simply saying how times have changed.

    But look at it this way, he will be back for the SEC Championship, playoffs and the National Championship. And if you think he wouldn't, then you haven't paid attention to the young man. Tagovailoa did it and Bowers is better than Tua.

    When you have a future career as a multi million dollar pro athlete teams/players use every means to restore full functionality to injured joints. They have the means, processes and expertise to "fix" torn or stretched ligaments. No need for feet to flop around unsupported on the end of the leg for a professional level athlete. Those of you that have had ankle injuries know what I'm saying.

    Playing as an immobile QB (Tua) and playing TE (blocking and cutting) are not the same level of healed/readiness. I wouldn't bet against BB's but being "ready to play" is different for TE and QB. Especially considering how BB's plays. Took Luckie 6 weeks w/minimal expectation to play/contribute.

    TN is in 5 wks. TN looked good beating aTm on saturday. Tough D and good running game. Max Johnson (aTm QB) looked bad. BIG game this week TN vs AL. I do not think TN can beat AL but if they do UGA will have to win out to win the SECe.

    Odds are against BB's playing before 12/1.

    I hate it for this young man. He is a great football player. I hope the surgery goes well and he recovers with no issues. The Dawgs tightend room has some big shoes to fill for sure.
