    Is our offensive line "elite" when it comes to run blocking?

    Did we not have an already talented running back room?

    Merry Christmas to All my fellow Dawgs fans and to the entire Dawgs program and All the writers and staff here at Dawg Nation !! May the Lord richly Bless and Protect you All !! Getting Trevor E. was a great get in my humble opinion. We’ve seen how injuries can mount up and decimate the RB room, so his addition can only help in my humble opinion. Go Dawgs !!

    With the additions through the portal and the incoming class UGA will be competing for another National Championship in 2024. Kirby has proven that he doesn't rebuild, he reloads. GO DAWGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes. Of course they are -- as various linemen and linebackers can attest. Some of them may STILL be on the ground, courtesy Messrs. Mims, Ratledge, et al, can attest.

    Biggest question for the line is whether Tate goes pro. He had a heckuva year -- lived up to that 5-star rating coming out of HS, and then some.

    Losing Van Pran is a big deal IMO, because of his constancy and leadership (greatest center in UGA history?), but that was already a given.

    We've got a lot of guys to reload with. It'll just be a bit more difficult to replace four guys who will be drafted (three who are likely to go early) than to replace just three of them.

    Really love this kid's vision. I know coaches harp on running backs sticking with the play call and not getting too "cute" at the line of scrimmage… but Etienne really does seem to have a knack for finding daylight after the handoff, then bursting though it, wherever it is. Not all highly-touted/proficient RBs in high school have that gift at the next level. Good get. Go Dawgs!

    Herschel quite often got the ball deep in the backfield to allow him to pick his own path. With his speed, quickness, and size it made him the best RB to ever play at UGA or anywhere else for that matter.

    The best running backs have always been able to, to quote Vince Lombardi, "Run to daylight."
