Mason, Gurley, Morgan star for offense in Dogs’ 2nd scrimmage 

By Chip Towers


 

ATHENS – OK, I’ll be filing a more comprehensive report on Georgia’s second scrimmage of the spring practice. All or parts of it will be posted on AJC.com and MyAJC.com a little later and, of course, you can read the whole thing in the Sports section of the Sunday newspaper.

But here’s a quick rundown and a couple of videos to watch to get an idea of what happened:

The offense played much, much better than it did last week, particularly running the football.

Quarterback Hutson Mason, tailback Todd Gurley, receiver Jonathan Rumph and kicker Marshall Morgan starred for the offense.

Linebacker Ramik Wilson, defensive end Leonard Floyd, linebacker Reggie Carter and defensive tackle Toby Johnson starred for the defense. The punters punted well, also.

Receiver Michael Bennett did not participate due to an ankle injury. Senior offensive tackle Watts Dantzler missed his fifth practice due to a concussion but should get back on Tuesday and be able to go for G-Day next Saturday.

It was a closed scrimmage as usual, so observations are based on interviews afterward. Here’s the statistics from the scrimmage as provided by UGA’s Sports Communications office:

RUSHING
Gurley 10-67 (1TD)
Douglas 13-40
Turman 4-22
Ramsey 3-4
Hall 1-4
Mason 6-21
Karempelis 4-21
Bauta 2-11
Vaugher 2-1
Park 1-5

PASSING
Mason 12-16-136 yds -1 TD -0 INTs
Ramsey 9-21-1-114-2TDs – 1 INT
Bauta 1-5-1y-0-1
Park 1-3-6y-0-0

RECEIVING
Rumph 6-62 TD
Conley 4-64
R Davis 3-64 TD
Towns 3-27
Karempelis 2-13
Hicks 1-17 TD
One reception each: Gurley, LeMay, Turman, Tibbs

Thomas Brown: ". . . Why is Mark Richt # 5 most wins any college FBS 1-A then 2001-2013 ? . . . Why did he beat # 23 Vanderbilt 2013 ? . . . ." - 2/6/14

ThomasBrown at 10:01 a.m. Nov. 3, 2013

. . . I now update my prediction for UGA 2013 to 10-3 with the # 1 Strength of Schedule . . .

Missouri, who has not beat anyone, loses to Texas A and M . . .

FSU remains on the outside looking in.

ThomasBrown at 5:35 a.m. Nov. 2, 2013
. . . FSU is so good with # 68 Strength of Schedule that they CANNOT make BCS Title game . . . .

@ThomasBrown

You don't have to write volumes to prove you have never, and will never, see the big picture (probably the little pictures either) . . .

Also, there is no way you were a "planned child" but rather a sad result of a recreational endeavor!!!!!!!!!!

@FrankFraticelli @ThomasBrown 

Frank, You made a great case and I really liked your analogy.  Unfortunately, ThomasBrown will NEVER understand in any real sense, the points you made.  He is a human statistics machine and nothing much else . . . .

@ThomasBrown You are a one-trick pony with an agenda.

@ThomasBrown  

Only in Thomas' fevered brain is a #12 seed (NC State) losing by 3 to a #5 a "huge blow-out loss to a Cinderella team". . . .

Fact, Thomas Brown is off his meds. Does anyone even read his manic rants?

WDE at 9:58 a.m. Nov. 21, 2013

Oh ThomasBrown . . . you have always been a buffoon and I fear your best work is yet to come . . . .

TheOldGuy at 11:21 a.m. Nov. 11, 2013
Sounds like ThomasBrown has a little crush on Aaron Murray the was he keeps up with his stats and life.
Guess ThomasBrown would like to be his girlfriend.

Thomas is calling someone else a bully, thats rich.

ahhhh Thomas Brown, I see the asylum is missing an inmate this morning.

The problem trying to reason with an insane person (Thomas Brown) is they don't realize they are crazy.

Shall we go on, ThomAss?

Where are the horses at TE? Hope Jay and Ty get some balls. Jay would be physically challenging for DB's to take on.

"Half of me pulled for the Dawgs, half for the Noles–depending on the game situation. Mixed feelings, torn, and still don’t know who I’d pull for if they play again."

C-Kirk: ". . . If Richt can get our Offense to the Opponents 45 yard line I think a field goal will be automatic and Morgan could be a real factor in 4 or 5 games . . . .

_____________________

So 62-yard FGs will be "automatic" for UGA? LOL

Not even sure how to respond to that one, C-K.

Well DOG fans one of your own needs your prayers.

Blake(UGa Grad 89) got his tests back and he has both Blood and Bone Cancer.

He is starting CHEMO Wednesday and could use your prayers.

He has been my buddy since High School. He was at work and wondered why he was feeling so bad. He Dropped at work and had to be taken by Ambulance to the hospital on Friday. They started running test. The results are in. He has the Big C. I can't spell the names of the types of cancer he has but it is Blood and Bone. As most of you know Bone cancer is REAL BAD.

Please add Blke to your Prayer lists if you will.

Uconn really has Florida's  or Donovan's Number.

The KATS really are peaking at the right time. Can't believe that many young players can play so good at the end of the season and at the end of a game when all the pressure is on.

Whatever happened to blake tibbs? That kid was a star recruit that caught everything and scored often. After a couple years, still haven't heard a peep.

Keep that in mind when getting overly excited or depressed about a kids star rating in high school.

If Alabama had a PK that could make one from 35 yards then we would have been in the NC game....again. Having a great PK is huge. Good for UGA.

@DawgNole  

Forgot about the 2 to 3 yards needed to set the ball down . So lets change that to the 40 to 43 yard line.

@HotDawg  UGA  has the BEST # 1 Veterinary school.......58Super......you are absolutely correct.


UGa isn't even the best Vet school in the SEC. UGa isn't even the best vet school in the South.

UGa is a very good vet school for you house pets though.

@C-Kirk @DawgNole  

Well, a line of scrimmage at the 43 works out to a 60-yard FG. No kicker in the history of the game--college or pro--has ever been close to "automatic" from 60. But hey, for the Dawgs' sake, I sure hope you're right.

How come tibbs doesn't have any #s above in stats column? Is he hurt or not practicing this spring? Just asking. The kid has disappeared.

GTcaryAZZd,


All anyone has to do is read any of your or POAD2013's childish, bragging posts, telling us all how great your football team is at English - while neither can speak the language a lick.

@HotDawg  maybe since they are shifting players all over the place he has been moved to back-up Punt returner or maybe they are trying him a Long Snapper.
