Dawgs Get Down To The Harlem Shake

Just when Gangnam Style was starting to lose its fad status, now we have the Harlem Shake.  If you’re not familiar with the latest fad, you can read more about how it began right here.  Since February 1st, 12,000 variations of the song/video/dance have been posted on YouTube grabbing a combined 44 million views.

One of the versions now getting pub?  The “Harlem Shake” as performed by the Georgia football team with a masked Joe Tereshinski — the Bulldogs’ strength coach — leading the way.

What more is there to say?  Just hit play.

Ex-UGA Lineman Benedict Sorta/Kinda Confirms Disagreement With New Dawg Strength Coach

Back-up offensive lineman Brent Benedict is leaving the Georgia football program for Virginia Tech.  The Dawgs have been hemorraging O-linemen this offseason, so even the loss of a reserve hurts.

Chip Towers of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution conducted a Q&A with Benedict yesterday and tried to get to the bottom of what really led to his decision to leave Athens:

“Q: I understand this mainly had to do with not seeing eye-to-eye with new strength and conditioning coach Joe Tereshinski about training techniques with respect to your (knee) injury.  I know he’s employing some old-school philosophies with a lot of lower-body work.  Is that what this is about?

A: Coach Tereshinski came in and he has his own philosophy and he and the coaching staff believe that it’s going to work and there’s no reason not to believe that.  So, there were a few things going on and I wasn’t able to resolve that.  Of course I hope Georgia does well, extremely well.  I’ve told all my buddies back there I wish them the best of luck and I really believe it will be successful.”

Is that an admission that the conditioning program is the reason he’s leaving.  Probably.  But Benedict is clearly trying to take the high road and he should be respected for that.  He only has one body and he’ll have to live with it — and the injuries done to it now — for years to come.  It’s his decision how he wants to rehab that body.

UGA Staff Welcomes Back Ex-LB Gilbert

Fans love it when their school hires an old star to join the coaching staff at Hometown U.  Even when its the strength staff.  And that’s why some Georgia fans are likely happy this morning.

New Georgia strength and conditioning coach Joe Tereshinski — himself an ex-Dawg — has hired former UGA linebacker Tony Gilbert to serve as a strength assistant.  Gilbert was the caption of the Bulldogs’ 2002 SEC Championship team and recorded 114 tackles that season.  He then enjoyed a seven-year NFL career.

Mark Richt made it clear via press release that he’s glad to have one of his old players back in the fold:

“I’m thrilled to have Tony as part of our strength staff and program.  His experience as a member of a UGA SEC championship team and an NFL player is a perfect combination for us.  Our players will benefit greatly from his knowledge.”

Gilbert was initially expected to join Tereshinski’s staff as a student assistant, but this will be a full-time position.

Here’s a reminder of the kind of damage Gilbert could do on a football field:

And just because…

Yeah, I had the 45.  Kids, just Google it.
