Yes you are. If youíre wrong then so is every media outlet that is saying he has 2 years to play 2.

I was the one who was wrong. My apologies to Cockdiesel and to all. I was taking a break in my car, did a quick internet search, saw some incorrect info, believed it to be true and posted hastily. The egg is on my face here. I certainly wish the kid had 3 years of eligibility left. (I also got one of those little lessons in not believing everything you see on the internet.) My bad, yíall.

Question - How does the 5 years to play 4 work when a Mormon recruit takes off 2 years for a mission after a year in college?

I’m sure they get a special waiver for that.

How many spots do we have left? Not including guys who may commit to us (Cam Smith) I donít care what our final ranking is this will still be a talented class. The media is making it sound like UGA is kicking our ass in recruiting this year but they recruit a top 5 class every year under Richt too.

True day. In the past, we would have lots of scholarships to fill at this point and would need to settle on players lower on our board. Now, with few scholarships left and a lot of high-rated players remaining, we can be selective and wait.

I personally think that this season will improve our chances of landing some of the remaining blue chip guys. To steal from Al Davis, "Just win, baby."

Or to steal from Field of Dreams, "Build it and they will come". And by "Build it", I do not mean the Football Ops Building, although that helps. I mean the program.

If he really weighed in at 359 then I'm not surprised.

According to TBS yes

He’s not going to be able to practice till he loses the weight because he would be at risk to practice at his current weight.

Catch 22 situation. Best way to loose weight is to diet and workout. What do they do? Set a magical weight goal for him? Thatís got to be tough for him.

Iíve got to tell you that I went through a weight vs BP deal. I was on BP meds when I lost 20 lbs (240 to 220) and my BP dropped out the bottom. I had to get my meds cut back to a weaker type. But I also quit working at the same time so there could be the absence of stress that helped lower my BL. Joshs stress level has to be pretty high in his predicament. I hate it for him.

Not much of a "Catch 22" situation really. At his size just changing his diet should have him down pretty quickly. The coaches never went into this thing expecting him to play this year due to him being a transfer and having to rely on the NCAA to grant a waiver so while he would have been a bonus to them it's no loss since he wasn't in the plans for 2018 anyway. So they can take their time getting him right and correcting his diet is the first, and frankly biggest, step.

Exactly.

Luckily for him he has a few great resources that are available to him. I am sure he has regular meeting times with the team dietician and hopefully Kinlaw can take him under his wing a bit and help him with his diet. If anybody is an example of dedication to diet, it would be Kinlaw. Hopefully Belk can follow in his footsteps.

Josh Belk practiced today. Had a helmet with no pads, but they have to bring him along like they did everyone in camp. I’m guessing he’ll be in full pads in a couple days. Excellent.
