Welcome to your one-stop shop for all the relevant UGA football news and takes every Monday through Friday. The year 2016 ended, and 2017 began with a bang for the Georgia Bulldogs. It began with a crazy comeback for the men’s hoops team to beat Auburn in their SEC opener on Thursday, continued with a Liberty Bowl win on Friday and finished with another pair of huge in-state commitments on Sunday. So, let’s give it up for the New Year.
Check out all the reporting from Jeff Sentell of DawgNation to get the scoop on the commitments of Gibbs and Bishop, along with any other players who pledge for Georgia before signing. And, as you can tell from Bishop’s tweet above and top UGA recruiter Richard LeCounte III below, there may be some more “savages” on the way over the next month.
When the class of 2017 is full of Savages
If all that wasn’t enough to get you excited, UGA football tweeted — then deleted — a video of the new indoor practice facility featuring Jacob Eason, along with the words, “New year, new building.”
[This is the part where I would usually include the video, but, like I said, deleted, so here’s a little peek inside]
Regardless, video or not, guys, it finally happened. After years of moaning by fans — and Jeremy Pruitt — the indoor facility is real. Its completion helps Georgia level the playing field with most of its direct competitors in game prep and recruiting departments, so it’s hard to understate how important this is to the program.
