    Thanks @sethemerson for the chance to ask questions.

    I saw the DawgNation article this week that Devon Gales' family is really struggling with expenses. In response, I saw someone float the idea (in the tweet below) that UGA take up voluntary contributions at G-Day to support the Gales family.

    Do you think this idea would be possible? Obviously would require buy-in from the UGA Athletic Association.

    Seth do you think Warner not on UGA radar anymore is because we have no more spots available and if so (excluding Nico and Solomon) who could we be holding spots for?
    I think JW would have to be in fold...thoughts?

    In all seriousness, have we added/hired any additional support staff within the last 90 days?

    Assuming that the offense and defense in year 2 progess under CKS, what would your opinion be on the realistic amount of wins this coming year that Dawg fans could expect.

    Jeff Sentell is the man to ask on the recruiting front. I'm happy to answer more general recruiting questions, such as how a recruit will fit in with what the team has coming back, team needs, etc.

    The last few open records requests haven't brought back any newsworthy additions, but those usually come after the recruiting period has ended. So there should be movement on that front soon.

    Only after they're no longer freshmen. That's why we got Eason, Nauta, Ridley and Rochester after finals ended in December. Academically they were no longer freshmen.

    Same as at Alabama. But at Clemson, for what it's worth, freshmen can speak to the media after they've played in a game. So no spring or preseason interviews, but once the season starts and they play they can speak.

    Well, that's the big question, right?

    Realistically, it's a very manageable schedule. It's hard to see them losing anything at home: Mississippi State, Kentucky and South Carolina are the toughest ones, on paper. There are dicey road trips: Notre Dame, Auburn, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, and the neutral site game with Florida.

    If Georgia gets rolling, realistically it could win out. I think the defense should be even better next year, and the offense has a chance with the tailbacks coming back. But with uncertainty at O-line and receiver, and special teams, I'd realistically pick 10-2 right now. Let's say a loss at Auburn and a loss to either Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Tennessee or Florida.

    Seth do you know the off season work out/film study regimen for players and specifically Eason?

    Nothing that specific. Eason did tell me after the bowl game he was going to be working in the off-season on things like footwork, reading coverages, etc.

    Thats the way it should be! Sometime THE PROCESS is too cute for its own good

    If we fill the house again on G-Day and charge $10 a head plus have donation buckets available that would solve the problems with getting the house built and would go a long way towards the ongoing travel/rehab expenses. I hope someone can make that happen.

    Agreed - one problem was on the day they had the Devon Gales press conference (hosted by David Pollack) and the announced the sale of the Gales shirts (with the Georgia G) their website crashed due to volume. I went back and ordered one days later but as you can imagine this probably cost them thousands of dollars in lost donations.

    I don't think DawgNation would have any trouble paying $10 a head to attend G-Day - especially if the money was going to such a good cause, for an adopted Dawg!
