    Wow. Not only speed and good hands but the ability to make quick cuts and misses. If he only were 6'3 he'd be unstoppable.

    Re: Chris Black to make debut against Georgia

    To me it says they aren't quite as sharp running routes and don't have the speed downfield or out of a cut. It's the little things that seperate the starters from the backups. With that said, everyone seems to think he's coming onto the field as the #2 receiver behind Coop. I dont' see it happening. For some reason I'm seeing this as an insurance policy if we need him, not that he's coming in to be a primary threat.

    If even slightly, that is huge. Can't wait to see him on Saturday.

    It could say that he is that good. As Coach said in his presser this week they need to have more receivers cause they get winded in 2 minute situations and if they run long routes. Right now we havfe Cooper, Norwood, Jones, Jones, and Shinn as basically the only guys who have played. Cy. Jones and Shinn barely have more experience than Black, so to me it's a great idea to get him in the game.

    God forbid we have another injury in this game to any of these guys and we will certainly need him. So to me it is a no brainer that if he can contribute he should play. And to me it doesn't mean that something is wrong with the other guys.

    Best post on the whole subject right here. His redshirt isn't getting burned in the weedwhacker bowl after a 6-6 season.

    Anybody with an ounce of fire in their belly would be BEGGING to get a chance at contributing this year.

    I saw one of the sports writers comment on Chris Black and his drive to play. They said he looked like he wanted to go in and play every game on the sidelines.

    Scarbinsky threw an idea out today. Is CNS going public with this to make Georgia gameplan for the pass more, which gives the running game an advantage? Scarbinsky supports the decision to play Black; he was just thinking if this was an attempt at mind games with UGA.

    Could be, putting so much emphasis on it, will cause them to prepare. Have him not be out there the first series, then bring him in and UGA will expect us to throw to him. Then we hit a nice pass to Cooper.

    Lets look in to the Crystal Ball, I guess we'll find out Saturday what He's got.
    This is the beginning of a new day.God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or or use it for good.What I do today is very important because Im exchanging a day of my life for it.When tommorow comes,this day will be gone forever. Leaving something in its place I have traded for it. I want it to be a gain, not loss - good, not evil. Success, not failure in order that I Shall not forget the price I paid for it.
