Who is JT Daniels trying to mold his game to? Unsurprisingly, the UGA quarterback named the reigning NFL MVP.
“My all-time favorite is Aaron Rodgers,” Daniels told Kyle Kensing of Athlon Sports. “I am a huge fan of Tom Brady. I appreciate [Patrick] Mahomes also a lot. Josh Allen, after [last] year especially.
“For me, I think Aaron Rodgers is the best high end that you can model your game on. What he can do with the ball is great. He’s a great decision maker. It is just accurate of all [places on the field]. Aaron is definitely my favorite.
New opponent for the 2031 season
If you think UGA’s opener against Clemson is tough, wait until the 2031 season. The Bulldogs are expected to play Ohio State, then play in Oklahoma two games later.
The sandwich game or second game that year will be Western Carolina, UGA confirmed to Mike Griffith of DawgNation. It was first reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Chip Towers.
“UGA will give Western Carolina, an FCS football program, a guarantee of $ 650,000 to play the game…”, wrote Towers. “Georgia will owe the Catamounts the full amount if the game is canceled for any reason not covered by the ‘force majeure’ clause. This clause now includes the words “epidemic, pandemic or other public health emergency,” which was not the case before before last year’s coronavirus pandemic forced match cancellations. “
Richard LeCounte finally feels “100%”
There’s good news about Richard LeCounte, the former UGA football star who crashed in the NFL Draft after sustaining injuries in a motorcycle wreck just before the Florida game last season. He ended up being selected in the fifth round by the Cleveland Browns.
LeCounte has revealed he finally feels “100%” for the first time since the sinking, according to Lyndsey Gough of WTOC.com. Now is the perfect time for LeCounte, as he battles for a spot in the Browns roster.
Safety, which was a favorite with UGA fans, also offered a perspective on the whole incident: “Obviously I fell on the drawing boards because of the crash and things like that, but I really didn’t care about these things, do you know? I knew God would fix that, and I would have a chance and a chance, and you know, when I got that call, I felt like I was the first choice in the first round.
High hopes for Azeez Ojulari
The New York Giants were surprised when former UGA outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari ran into them in the second round of this year’s NFL Draft. They have high expectations for the rookie:
“Ojulari, who many had ranked as the top rusher in this draft class, will almost certainly step in as a starter and the Giants need him quickly to become a productive rusher,” wrote NJ.com’s Zack Rosenblatt.
What is so important about Ojulari, about his role with the Giants? “The Giants don’t have any proven passers in their lineup right now, with the exception of defensive lineman Leonard Williams. The Giants are still on top of Lorenzo Carter, but he both needs to stay healthy and live up to his potential, something he failed to do in his first three seasons.
“Defensive coordinator Patrick Graham is savvy enough to make things work whether he has a star passing thrower or not – the Giants had 40 total sacks last year without much help on the rim – but that would certainly make the defense even more dynamic if Ojulari was ready to contribute right away.
