Call for the mailbag

The spring game has come and gone, so it's time to wrap things up the only way we know how: By answering reader mail.

Of course, you don't have to just ask about football. Here are a few other topics worthy of discussion:

- The Georgia baseball team's chances to make the NCAAs, the men's basketball team's offseason, or any other Bulldog sports.

- Donald Trump.

- Gardening tips.

- Do you like the show "Chuck?" Also, are you liking Will Ferrell being on "The Office"?

- Why is Natalie Portman following up her Oscar with "Your Highness" and "Thor"? Can't anyone get her some Shakespeare, or at least Elmore Leonard?

- Gardening hoes.

- Hosing your garden.

That said, I suspect football will dominate discussion. Feel free to ask anything. Well, almost anything. As always, post your questions below, or send me an e-mail (semerson@macon.com).

WHEN YOU BUY A SPRAYER FOR YOUR GARDEN HOSE DO YOU GET ONE OF THE FANCY 17 SETTING SUPER GUNS OR JUST A SIMPLE TWIST ON/OFF NOZZLE.
HOW BOUT THEM DAWGS!

I recommend the thumb over the end of the hose. I feel it gives you more control and I'm a cheap bastard. What are your thoughts?

Suomynona said...

I rarely water my garden - do you guys really water yours?

Seth have you ever tried "Square Foot Gardening"? My yield is phenomenal.

You better learn how to grow veggies.

Logan said...

Kudos to Richt for doing what's necessary to sign Crowell, but do you see the Crowell/Smith number sharing working out? I think using mutually exclusive players on one side of the ball is necessarily predictable. Hopefully this only a one-year plan.

I'd like to have some hoes do my gardening too, Seth.

On to the Dawgs:

1) what kind of impact do you expect Nick Marshall to play next year? Or will we have to wait to see him get a chance?

2) Is Corey Moore expected to make an impact this year? I could see him taking over the safety spot opposite rambo by season's end (ala Ogletree)

3) Ray Drew has now been added to the UGA track team to throw discus. As a former track and field athlete, I think this is awesome, but some tend to disagree. What are your thoughts on this move, Seth?

Pl0we said...

Do you see Grantham stacking the line with Jenkins and Geathers against Tech?

Who do you think will end up being the punt returner?

1.) If the state of Alabama threated to secede from the union, do you think anyone would stop them?

2.) Who do you think will be the starting Outside Linebackers will be when they lineup against Boise State?

MarkS31 said...

While the move of Ogletree to linebacker seems to have helped things, is there any concern about what it's done for the safety position? How's that looking coming out of spring?

Jason said...

Wanted to echo Logan's question. How the heck is the Crowell/BSmith #1 thingy going to play out if they're both going to play on offense???

Eric said...

1) Now that Tompkins and Leslie are gone, what are reasonable expectations for our record next year? Over or under 15-15 (6-10)?

2) It seems we have a lot of players switching between offense and defense (Smith, Anderson, Samuel). Do you think this impedes their development?

3) So we move Ogletree from S to ILB and now the coaches are saying that we have depth issues at Safety. Is this a case of filling one hole and creating another?

4) Your thoughts on the Carver situation. Does this mean we will stop recruiting Bonner?

Geoffrey said...

When Donald Trump becomes President and armageddon rages, would owning a sustainable garden be more of a benefit or do you expect our economy to continue on a gold/silver bartering system?

My other question is can you tell that our guys have benefitted from the new strength and conditioning program/facility? Do they look leaner or at least MEANER? I'm hoping that someone rips off Stephanie Garcia's head - or whoever lines up at QB for SC.

Thanks, man.

That's What She Said said...

Do you see D'Angelo Vickers as more of an offensive guy or a defensive guy? Maybe play both ways?

Is Jason Heyward overated? What more frustrating watching Uga football last year or braves this year?

Anonymous said...

Would you be in favor of starting Seth's coed carwash? Of course you would never get any work done with that going on outside your window

Rob said...

Since Verne Lundquist's football play-by-play is deteriorating with every passing year, what can we do to have him replaced by Gus Johnson? I think a Johnson/Danielson team would be a winner for CBS and the SEC.

What date do incoming players join in summer?

Personally I like the fancy sprayers, but that's just me. Once they break though, and they always do, the thumb method works about as well.

On football, what do you thing the odds are of us going 2-0, 1-1, or 0-2 to start the season?

c said...

Seth, who would you redshirt Lemay or Mason? and why. This also might make a good poll question for your readers since it will be a slow time between now and when UGA is in the CWS.
Also wanted to add Jason Heyward is overrated, looks hurt and tired and should be traded before he has the same value as Frenchy did when he was cast off.

How will Damon Evans celebrate June 30th this year. Will he take a cruise or something in conjunction with July 4th.

TV Question:
Do you have any hope for HBO achieving "The Sopranos" or "The Wire" kind of quality again? The dramas aren't bad, but nothing like those older shows, or like Madmen now on AMC. Any thoughts on "Game of Thrones," or AMC's "The Killing" or "Breaking Bad?"

Anonymous said...

Boardwalk Empire is the best "current" show on HBO.

When your neighbors are suffering "Severe Drought Restrictions," do you really hose your garden? Shouldn't you share your neighbors' pain?

Do you think Obama will become transparent and reveal his true birth certificate. if it is proven that he is an illegal will it become sheer pandemonium in the US.

OldDawg55 said...

May I recommend Home and Garden and TV Guide for a lot of these bloggers..Seth, will you finally answer this question: Who picks up the very expensive tab for sending non-qual players to Hargrove Mil or any of the other alternative venues..and how can that sit well with the NCAA??

Anonymous said...

Do you remember when the late great Howard Cosell would say "its sheer pandemonium" in Pittsburgh?

HobnailedBoots said...

Do people REALLY have to ask if UGA will continue to recruit Deion Bonner or not? Surely nobody is that dense.

Anonymous said...

Do you think Harvey Updykes punishment will be for him to partake in a Alabama highway beautification project in tree planting?

Mr. Bixby said...

Seth,
What is Samuel L. Jackson's connection to UGA? Is he just a fan, or does he have a relative that attended? Or does he like the letter G and the colors red & black?

If you could be any animal for a day, what would you be, and why?

Anonymous said...

Not exactly a question but to be fair to Natalie Portman "Your Highness" was filmed after "Black Swann". Danny McBride actually said that they just got really lucky getting her before she won the Oscar.

Seth, I use a short hoe to spread my seed, and I get bountiful results every year. Just make sure you get a good quality hoe, cause not just any hoe will do. You also have to make sure your seed is of premium quality, and is very healthy. I would suggest studying your seed first, then let your hoe have at it.

Hope this helps.

The Killing is a great new shoe, at least 4 episodes in.

Are there some potential O linemen CMR might be able to pull like rabbits out of a hat?

For instance, Georgia Military College has several 300+ pound O Linemen on their roster. Are any of them potential 2011 Bulldog O linemen?

I hope this question doesn't sound too desperate!

When the recruits come in defiantly add a new depth chart cause the dawgs have some very highly prospected recruits coming in.
