I'm back from my Rugby trip to London and Cardiff. Like my Georgia Bulldogs in the SEC Championship game and Sugar Bowl, Ireland forgot to get off the bus and got beat by Wales. Oh well, what are you going to do. Field results by my boys did not spoil the absolutely stellar time I had on the trip. The Manor House in Wiltshire exceeded my expectations and all the food and beverages were tip-top. On Monday I got to shoot some Sporting Clays at the Bisley Shooting Grounds in Surrey. Boy Englishmen like fast high flying targets - OMG, talk about challenging. Nevertheless I acquitted myself well and had a marvelous time.

Hope you boys have been holding down the fort while I was gone. How's Spring Practice going thus far for Bama?
All Spring and Fall camp preparations are being conducted pointing towards UGA and Clemson.

Sorry DawgByte, but there is nothing better than watching Cymru beat up on Ireland, Scotland, and England at Cardiff Arms Park while the crowd sing Men of Harlech. Cymru am byth! (Translated means: Wales Forever!)

Those in the know . . . can one assume that young Mr. Pickens got his grades in order? It seemed to be a big caveat in February.

I was under the impression that he was a basically a "cosmetic" signing and that for him to play would be nothing short of a miracle?

From what I'm hearing grades are in order. We'll see how it goes. He and Blaylock would make a dynamic duo on the outside.

The singing was quite impressive indeed. We'll see how the boys in Scarlet fair during the World Cup later this year.

His grades were JuCo...If he gets in that's magic...
As far as I'm aware the Clearing House does not believe in magic. This topic was just brought up over on the DawgNation message board over the weekend and nobody is hearing any issues with Picken's grades.

If this is true that his grades are in order, UGA’s academic standing has fallen somewhere between Southern Mississippi and Delta State. “Way to go Kirby our academic standing now sucks, but just imagine the dynamic duo on the outside!” Nice.

Nice...His grades were horrible. Call it what you want. I chose magic, it was the nicest option. :Joker_PDT_37: on TideFans.com

There had long been talk that his grades were a problem. Was even mentioned as a reason Alabama backed off. Auburn fans were worried about him qualifying, too.

I understand biases, but I have a bit of a problem with some of these posters almost gloating about how bad Pickens’ grades were. Is that what you saw and know, or is that what you heard, and how do you know the source you heard that from is certifiable and can be validated. Did any of you see his report cards, or know his teachers personally. Oh! You don’t? Than pipe down. UGA is getting a damn good receiver, nothing we can do about it other than get a better corner/safety.

Welp... Guess we can't discuss anything on here without first hand knowledge. No discussing a player's recruitment. No criticizing a playcall without knowing everyone's assignments.

Do you remember Nadab Joseph? UGA fans thought they stole a DB from Saban on NSD two years ago. Why didn't he sign with Alabama? Because his grades were crap. Where is he now? Independence, Kansas

You seem to be a little sensitive over the way a rival board discusses a player having possible academic problems. We all know he is good but until he steps foot on campus his grades will be talked about.

For your reference, we discuss grade issues of our own commits/signees also until they either get on campus or go JUCO.

I hear he is waiting for an offer from Oxford.
