    That is probably the only time in history those two big boys have been lumped together to count as one person. :)

    GO dawgs!

  4. Hurray Jeff! You're back. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to do this. Go Dawgs! GATA!

  5. Glad to see you back on air, Jeff. Any Twitter updates from the sidelines scheduled for this season?
    - John From Texas

  6. Hey Jeff.... my son, who plays on the DL in school, and I are adopting you this fall! We'll be watching you play this season, so that my son can learn the proper technique, heart and effort it takes on every play until the whistle blows to be a great DL in the SEC! Thanks for the example you set on and off the field for the Dawgs.... you're a Damn Good Dawg! Hope you and the team have a great season!! GATA and Go Dawgs!!


  7. Sweet Home Alabama? Come on now boys, Georgia on My Mind is 100% better! I mean, RAY Charles!

  8. Jeff, good luck this week preparing for the season opener. I`ll be looking for you and the other D-linemen in the OSU backfield all day this coming Saturday. Show`em in Stillwater and the National T.V. audience that the Junkyard Dawgs are BACK!!. "Relentless" should be the word of the day on Sept 5th Have a great week!!

    GO DAWGS!!

  9. Jeff, glad you're back! I've got a lot of respect for Big Ben, he's turning into a heckuva player. Y'all keep working together to make each other better and you will take the team a long way!

    Show them Pokes in OK how we do it in the South!

  10. Jeff, good luck in Stillwater. How about telling Ben Jones that the guy at CFB said in an article that UGA's OL was the "most overrated part of the team, and "not even the best in the SEC, let alone America." That ought to get the big guys riled up a bit and in the mood to steamroll somebody come Sat. Go Dawgs!
