FROM THE EDITOR: VANCE LEAVY Here we go Georgia fans. Another Dawgs’ football season beckons and where shall I begin? You would have to be living under a rock not to understand what the arrival of Jeremy Pruitt has meant to the Georgia defense. Pruitt’s no, non-sense approach is just what the doctor ordered, in my opinion. At this point, there are ZERO named starters on the Georgia D. And according to Pruitt (in Murray Poole’s story on page 6) that will be the case deep into Fall Camp this August. You gotta love it! And not surprisingly, the Pruitt effect doesn’t appear to be for everyone as several players have opted to transfer elsewhere. You hate to see guys move on, but if their hearts are no longer with Georgia, then their departure is best for all parties. Since day one, what I liked the most about Pruitt is how he’s all about fundamentals and he won’t complicate things if folks aren’t grasping what he’s after. For years, we at BI have been begging for our team to play sound football. I call it doing the little things correctly. In Murray’s story on page 13, Coach Richt, Coach Lilly and Coach Ekeler give some insight on how the team is progressing on the little things. Now, let’s talk about one of my favorite topics and that’s running the football. On page 14, Murray asked Coach Richt, Coach Bobo and Coach McClendon a familiar question from BI, will our offense keep to its long tradition of equal balance between running and passing the football? Or will they just let Todd Gurley take his team to the promised land? I give our coaches credit for their consistency because balance is what we can expect again in 2014. Now, I get all the talk about defenses being able to stack the box and shut down even the best running backs. But I would have to counter that everyone in the Georgia Dome knew Alabama was going to keep running the football in the third and fourth quarter of the 2012 SEC Championship. And guess what? It didn’t matter because they

gashed our defense over and over again. Still I have faith in Mike Bobo because he has shown, from time to time, that he understands that there is nothing more demoralizing for the other team than to know what’s coming and still not be able to do anything to stop it. The above stories are just a few of the many football nuggets in this issue to get you fans primed and ready for the 2014 season. Both Jeff Dantzler (pages 4, 5) and Murray Poole (11) go game by game. And as he does every year, Murray makes his annual prediction. 10-2 is solid. Would you take that right now? I probably would. On page 12, JD goes position by position which is always interesting. To me, how Hutson Mason will perform and the competition for his back-up will be intriguing to follow. And who knows what our defense is going to look like when things get rolling when Clemson arrives to Sanford Stadium? Our coverage in this issue touches on players that were on campus this spring, but we shouldn’t forget that a solid, new group arrive in Athens this summer. Because of this, I asked our online recruiting guru, Trent Smallwood to name the top 5 newbies that he sees contributing immediately. Here they are with a little insight from Trent. 1) Isaiah McKenzie: McKenzie will contribute from day one on special teams. Great speed, very explosive, and almost impossible to tackle in open space. 2) Shattle Fenteng: With the loss of Shaq Wiggins to transfer and Brendan Langley, I see Fenteng contributing early and often for the Bulldogs. He has the speed, length, and plays physical just how Jeremy Pruitt likes his corners. 3) Isaiah Wynn: The Bulldogs struggled in the spring at OG. Wynn has a chance to come in and earn immediate playing time. He is an outstanding run blocker and one of the most athletic OG’s coming to UGA in quiet sometime. 4) Michel/Chubb: This RB duo coming in is very similar to the Gurley/Marshall duo. I be-

2014 Season Preview Cha Cha Cha Publishing Inc. t Editor : Vance Leavy lieve both will see the field in 2014 and make an impact relieving Gurley at times. 5) Lorenzo Carter: Carter might not be a full time player early on, but I believe he will make an impact on 3rd down pass rush. Look for Pruitt to have a package with Jenkins, Carter and Floyd all in the game on 3rd Down pass situations.

With that, now I must wrap things up, but I certainly hope you enjoy our Season Preview. And without question, I hope the Redcoat marching band will be playing SUPER LOUD all season long. And who better to lead them, than Chris Conley, who never takes a down off in practice and in games. Finally, what I’ve discussed in this editor’s note, only encompasses half of what is in this tremendous issue. Now, I will throw the ball to Cheri on page 15, so she can tell you about all our social coverage. It’s great stuff. And I encourage you to frequent our website this summer for up to date recruiting info. And posts by our awesome sports interns, who we gave off for this issue, so they could wrap up spring semester. And last, but certainly not least, a big thank you must go to my high school buddy and graphic artist extraordinaire, Boyd Martin, for his awesome redesign of BI. We’re hoping our new swag will bring great karma to our team and that we all blow the doors off of the 2014 season! Woof, Woof, Woof ...

Franklin stand-in Maty Mauck was outstanding when Franklin went down in Athens. The production could be even better. Missouri has a strong offensive line, good backs, and even without Green-Beckham, talented and big wide receivers. The biggest area of concern for Mizzou will be replacing a lot of defensive talent.

Breaking it down: Game by game August 30 Clemson Sanford Stadium For a second straight season, Georgia opens with Clemson and South Carolina. Once again, the Bulldogs will know straight out of the gate whether this is a championship caliber season. Last season at Death Valley, Georgia made too many mistakes and the Tigers took advantage WRZLQ,QD´YHORVVVHDVRQPDUUHGE\ VHOILQÂľLFWHG ZRXQGV VSHFLDO WHDPV GLVDVWHUV and injuries, the Clemson game set the unfortuQDWHWRQH$ERWFKHG´HOGJRDOH[FKDQJHDIWHU a red zone breakdown, a dropped interception with a seven point lead and a critical interception thrown after Clemson fumbled a punt were major contributing factors to the loss.

The last two seasons, Clemson has gone 22-4 – losing twice each to Florida State and South Carolina. Over that period, the Tigers have beaten Auburn, LSU and Georgia.

September 13 South Carolina Columbia Georgia’s Number One coaching nemesis of all time awaits, facing the school he likes to beat the most. What Steve Spurrier has done in Columbia is remarkable. The Gamecocks have pieced together three consecutive 11-2 seasons. Over the last four years, South Carolina is 9-3 vs. Florida, Georgia and Tennessee and 4-0 against Clemson, while picking up bowl victories over Michigan, Nebraska and Wisconsin and a 2010 upset of then No. 1 Alabama. The Gamecocks lost Jadaveon Clowney, the top pick in the draft, plus Connor Shaw and Bruce (OOLQJWRQ RII RI DQ H[SORVLYH RIIHQVH  %XW WKH Gamecocks have recruited well and they have 6SXUULHU  +LV UHFRUG LV H[FHSWLRQDO  +H PDGH Florida great, won an ACC title at Duke and has taken South Carolina from the cave to the moon, while skipping several evolutionary gridiron steps along the way. Spurrier was 11-1 against Georgia at the Florida helm. South Carolina had never beaten Georgia more than twice in a row. He led the Gamecocks to three straight victories over the Bulldogs from 20102012, including a 35-7 pounding of Georgia in the last Columbia meeting. Georgia won 41-30 a year ago in Athens. If the Bulldogs make it a 2-0 start and two straight over the Gamecocks, Georgia is a legitimate contender for one of those four coveted spots.

Q&A

with MARKRICHT

Q Does it seem hard to believe you’re starting your 14th season at Georgia and any projection of how long you’d like to coach? I’m not changing. I’ve always tried to be obedient to what God is telling me, and I plan on doing it for a while. In some ways it has seemed like 14 years but it has gone quickly. I think the older you get the faster life goes but also you’re measuring your years in seasons and it seems WR¾\E\,KHDUGWKLVZKHQLWFRPHVWRSDUHQWLQJEXWLW­VUHDOO\WUXHLQ coaching too, the days are long but the years go fast. QWhat do you think are the strengths and weaknesses of your 2014 football team?

What is Dad’s #1 priority?

Our strength has to be everybody’s ability to do it the way the coaches ask them to do it, buying in and giving their best effort. I think if we do that we have a chance to be pretty good. I’m seeing a lot of good progress in that area. You’ve got to establish that every year, I believe. Obviously, our secondary has some growing up to do. They were very young a year ago and very inexperienced a year ago. We’ve got to become more mature in that area. We’ve got a couple of guys who can rush the passer and our linebacker area has got some experience with some productivity to go along with it. But I don’t want anybody to think they are ready made because they’re all learning to do it the way Coach Pruitt and the staff want it done. Every job is kind of up for grabs still so it’s kind of hard to say what the deal is, but we should be in pretty good shape there. D-line, I think we’ve got some answers there if guys come through but their conditioning and their ability to learn what to do (will decide playing time). Running backs, right this minute we’re not deep but if everybody is healthy and everybody’s here it looks like we’ve got some good quality players, good quality depth. O-line, we don’t have all the pieces together but I think we have enough material to get it done. Tight ends I think could be a question mark for us right now. Our receivers, when healthy we’ve got a chance but if we’re not we’re going to have our work cut out for us. QSometimes it’s hard to compare a team’s attitude and work ethic from one year to the next but what have you seen from this team? 5LJKW QRZ , WKLQN WKH\­UH ´JKWLQJ OLNH PDG WR UHDFK WKH VWDQGDUG that the coaches are setting. I think they’re really trying and making progress but we’re not there yet. We’ve got a ways to go. Q Does Todd Gurley stack up, talent-wise, with some of the great players you’ve coached through the years and what about this Heisman Trophy talk concerning him?

A

I think if Todd is in great condition and healthy and if he plays with the kind of energy and effort it takes to be a champion I think he’s going to have a great season. And I think if the team wins, he’ll be a candidate. Not many guys win that award unless their team is winning.

Q How important are the 2014 season openers with Clemson and South Carolina, coming right out of the chute and what do they mean to the Bulldogs’ overall success this season?

2EYLRXVO\WKH\­UHDOOLPSRUWDQW,I\RXNQRZ\RXU´UVWJDPHLVDJDLQVW a great opponent on national TV and the whole college football world LVZDWFKLQJLW,WKLQNLWJHWV\RXUMXLFHV¾RZLQJDOLWWOHELWPRUH%XW they’re all important.

reasons to be pumped about UGA’s 2014 season Returning to Athens for “Saturday between the hedges” and tailgating on Lumpkin Street for 40 years with family, friends and others. Eating and drinking our favorite tailgate food and beverages. Cheering the team as they bus down Lumpkin to the “Dawg” Walk. If playing Clemson and tailgating on opening day won’t pump you up, nothing will. Watching our Heisman trophy candidate, Todd Gurley, leading our potent scoring machine on offense along with a new quarterback throwing to a talented crowd of receivers in Kris Durham, Chris Conley and Malcolm Mitchell should again make us an offensive powerhouse. New Defensive Coordinator Jeremy Pruitt and staff have inherited a battle tested but young defense. That excuse is now over and this defense must regroup and bring back the enthusiasm to the game and regain the distinction of being known as the “Junkyard Dawgs.” 40 years celebrating the Georgia-Florida game with fans, friends, alumni at Maggie’s, the Lady Dawgs Headquarters on St. Simons Island. All week prior to the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party in Jacksonville on Nov. 1st, fans ÅVJR[V:[:PTVUZHUK[OL.VSKLU0ZSLZ[V practice and what better place to be in the Golden Isles and shopping at Maggie’s Boutique.

B. Presnell’s reasons to choose Athens as your home Living in Athens is like “a step back in time.” Whether with a family, single, newlywed or retiring, Athens retains much of the character of an older quaint Southern town…sidewalks, children walking to school, and neighborhood shopping. Athens is consistently quoted as one of the most desirable places to live in Georgia. Every day is different…an electric atmosphere permeates Athens with a broad range of events almost every day in our Classic City: cultural, musical, athletic—there’s no excuse for boredom. Music feeds the soul, and Athens has plenty of it to offer, including “tried-andtrue” favorites as well as fresh local artists from all around the south…from a picnic at the Terrapin Brewery to watching the Red Coat Band practice to enjoying Widespread Panic’s revisit to the Georgia Theatre. Excellent schools, both public and private, and HUH[PVUHSÅHNZOPWPUZ[P[\[PVU[OL<UP]LYZP[`VM Georgia, make Athens a great place for educational opportunities for all ages. Athens is a CLASSIC, your home should be too! Whether you prefer suburban subdivisions, mid century modern, or classic downtown neighborhoods, Athens offers architecture of all ages and types. From historic neoclassical and =PJ[VYPHU[VUL^OVTLZV\[Ä[[LK^P[O[OLSH[LZ[ [LJOUVSVNPLZHUKÄULZ[JYHM[ZTHUZOPW`V\»SS ÄUKP[HSSPU([OLUZ

Chris Lloyd’s reasons I opened Marker 7 Coastal Grill

I wanted to open a restaurant that wouldn’t compete against Hilltop Grille. But they do have the common goal of bringing together MYPLUKZHUKMHTPSPLZ[VLUQV`MYLZOÅH]VYM\SMVVK and good libations. The location on one of Ä]LJVYULYZPU-P]L7VPU[Z^HZ[VVNVVK[V pass on - the patio has a view of all of the comings and goings of the heart of Athens. I ^HU[LK[VILWHY[VM[OLNYV^[OVM-P]L 7VPU[Z^OPJO0ILSPL]L^PSSILSPRL Virginia Highlands in Atlanta. Close proximity to UGA Athletics adds to the fun on gamedays. We were able to restore an historical home which was an eyesore into something Athens can be proud of - we were recognized by Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation with a preservation award for the renovation. I always wanted a restaurant built off a menu that YLÅLJ[Z[OL:[:PTVUZHUK.\SM*VHZ[SHPK IHJRSPMLZ[`SLOur oysters come from the Gulf of Mexico and shrimp from the coast of Georgia. Come visit and sit back and relax, let your mind drift off to that little stretch of beach where we all wish we were.

TIPS for Gameday Dressing Dress to impress! - Here in the Classic City, the game day dress code calls for a little more than a t-shirt, so thrown on your Saturday best! We love wide-leg print pants paired with a tunic or even a sundress and sandals! Don’t be afraid of all black...with a little red. - There’s nothing more chic than all black—especially with Georgia red for game day. The best part is, your classic all-black pieces can be worn any other day of the week too. Dress for style AND comfort. - Remember that game day in Athens is a marathon, not a sprint—it’s an all-day thing. That means wearing shoes you can walk in (like our comfortable but stylish Gentle Souls) and comfy-chic clothes like our favorite Sympli jersey knits! Never, ever wear the opposing team’s colors. - You never want to end up on the wrong side of the hedges! Last but not least...accessories, accessories, accessories!!@V\YV\[Ä[PZ^OH[`V\ make it, and you’re never game-ready until you’ve got on your best Georgia jewels! So stop by Sonia Says on your way to Sanford Stadium because we’ve got all your game day goodies!

Roland Danielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reasons be pumped about UGAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2014 football season Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not #one! There are no unreasonable expectations entering this season; that will be a big plus for the Dogs this year. A lot of new faces can mature under an PTWYV]LKZ[HMM^P[OV\[IVVIPYKZLHYS`PU[OLZLHZVU`LHO 0ÂťT[HSRPUNHIV\[THU`VM\Z0M^LZ[H`ILOPUK[OPZ[LHT and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early success against Clemson and South Carolina, then begin to expect something special. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be exciting for sure. Stacked at Running Back. We know about Gurley and Marshall; could it be a reincarnation of [OL7VU`,_WYLZZSVVRP[\W`V\UNZ[LYZ&5L^JVTLY Chubb may be the real deal bringing even more speed HUKWV^LY[VV\YZ[YVUNZ\P[;^V`HYKY\ZOLYZ[OPZ year; I think my dream is possible! Improved O-Line. We could use this optimistic phrase every year of late. Keeping Hutson Mason off his fanny is a big key for success this season. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thinking like Bobo that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a bit improved over last season. Eliminate the sacks, we win TVYL[OHUV[OLY^PZLHNHPUNo Me In Team. Looks like those with the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hey, check me outâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attitude are gone from Athens. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thinking the Bulldogs will be strutting only HM[LYWYV]PUNZ\JJLZZVU[OLĂ&#x201E;LSKHUKUV[ILMVYL;Y\L leaders will show up early to lead a much changed team VU[OLĂ&#x201E;LSKFresh Start on D. Yep, defense is the key. Lack of consistency here is the reason Murray couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a championship to go with his gaudy career stats. Pruitt, refreshing new CEO of the dirty side of the ball, wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tolerate arm tackling and quitting when behind or ahead. Talent is there, and some young faces are ready to slap the pudding out of people. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m most excited about the posZPIPSP[PLZOLYL+PK0TLU[PVUZWLJPHS[LHTZ&5V0KPKUÂť[ and it might not be a reason to be pumped this season.

ingredients I like to use

Seafood - Freshly caught grouper, Georgia white shrimp, oysters, scallops and crab are on our menu nightly and I prepare them piccata, scampi, berardi, grilled, fried, meuniere and parmesan crusted. Risotto - I love coming up with new twists on this Italian rice dishâ&#x20AC;Ś imagine a wild mushroom and parmesan cream risotto or a roasted red pepper and andouille sausage risotto. Chocolate Our toasted coconut chocolate silk pie is a house hit but I even drizzle chocolate cognac sauce on our pecan pie. And we have a few chocolate martinis on the menu. Lemons - I use them to bring out [OLĂ&#x2026;H]VYPUTHU`MVVKZHUK[VIYPNO[LU dishes. They work so well with seafood and added to butter and wine creates a beautiful sauce. Cheeses - One of our popular appetizers is the baked feta with toast points topped with an olive tapenade and balsamic reduction. I make a mean swiss cheddar mornay for our seafood gratin. Parmesan. Blue Cheese. Flavorful cheeses are used throughout our menu.
