Kirby Smart made it clear the Bulldogs wanted to get to four scholarship quarterback. But few could’ve envisioned that Georgia would grab Jayden Maiava out of the transfer portal as the Bulldogs did on Monday night.

    Correct pronunciation of Maiava?

    Seems that way, but your last sentence describes it best imo......."the cream always rises to the top".

    I’m pretty confident that Gunner will stay and embrace the competition. I sure hope so. I have nothing at all against Maiava as he’s a Dawg now. But May the best man win the #2 slot.

    Again nothing against Maiava but I will be pulling for Gunner to win it in a head to head competition. It should be an interesting and hotly contested competition. And in the end if both keep a positive attitude it should make Both better. Go Dawgs !!

    P.S. I wouldn’t be shocked ( though somewhat disappointed) if the preferred Walk-on C. Ginn does leave. He might have seen that the Dawgs only had three scholly QBs at the time and figured maybe he could break in. Which begs the question Could he have ?? He lead 4A HS Perry, Ga. to a State Championship win. Oh well the appropriate $$ with my opinions will get you a sammich at BK !! 😀

    Life is about competition. In everything. From the girl you marry who 20 other guys wanted to marry to work and beating out 5 other people for the promotion. Embrace competition.

    Pretty awesome that Kirby was able to bring in such an accomplished QB as the fourth scholarship guy. It still seems unlikely that he'll catch up to Stockton in our system and at SEC-level play.

    I'd like to know more about his game. Great size. I guess he's more of a pocket passer (?) but it also seems like he can run the ball. Had a good bowl game against Kansas (although he threw two interceptions).

    I appreciate the details about his game in the special podcast but would have liked more in Connor's article. A Sports Illustrated post said he "possesses a big arm with the ability to effortlessly complete passes from the opposite hash, but he has also showcased the ability to layer the ball into difficult windows with impressive touch."

    On personal level, he certainly sounds the right notes: Comes across as smart and willing to learn in this 247 post: https://247sports.com/article/unlv-transfer-qb-jayden-maiava-explains-georgia-commitment-plan-to-learn-from-carson-beck-224946761/

    @dawgnation Sorry to refer to other websites, but I was looking a better idea of what he brings to the team.

  • BigDawg888BigDawg888 Posts: 1,429 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I'll tell you what it means. It means that if Beck gets hurt we have a serviceable qb who can beat most teams with his surrounding cast. That's it.

    Iron sharpens Iron, I love competition it shows who you are and what you need to improve. Welcome to the "G" Jayden Maiava you are going to love it here.😎

  • navydawgnavydawg Posts: 2,970 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Yep. True that !! This team will have allot of youth, but highly athletic youth, and the competition in house will refine them to a level of quality they probably don’t even realize they have !! I look for the 2024 Dawgs to be right back in the hunt, Again !! Go Dawgs !!

    Looks like he is actually going to USC. It did not make a lot of sense to me for him to come to UGA to not play.

    I was just wondering if by chance, someone on the coaching staff let Gunner know that he was getting a new little brother. Surprises like that can sometimes leave one speechless and Gunnie deserves better. #DGD

    We lost him. The Transfer Portal roller coaster ride, baby. Lol
