DISPUTE RESOLUTION

You and the cmg affiliate that operates the Service agree to arbitrate – rather than litigate in court – any and all claims or disputes between the parties (INCLUDING ANY parents, subsidiaries, AFFILIATES, officers, directors, employees, OR agents OF OURS) that arise out of or in any way relate to this SERVICE AND PRODUCTS OR services that we, OUR AFFILIATES AND/oR OUR SERVICE PROVIDER (ON OUR BEHALF) MAY provide to you in connection with YOUR USE OF THIS SERVICE; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT IN NO EVENT SHALL THIS PROVISION PREVENT YOU FROM FILING OR JOINING A COMPLAINT WITH ANY FEDERAL, STATE, OR LOCAL GOVERNMENT AGENCY THAT IS AUTHORIZED BY LAW TO SEEK RELIEF AGAINST us ON YOUR BEHALF. the arbitration between you and the cmg affiliate that operates the Service will be binding AND JUDGMENT ON THE AWARD RENDERED IN THE ARBITRATION MAY BE ENTERED IN ANY COURT HAVING JURISDICTION THEREOF.


In arbitration, there is no judge and no jury, and review of arbitration decisions in the courts is very limited. Instead, disputes will be resolved by an arbitrator, whose authority is governed by the terms of this Agreement. You and the CMG Affiliate that operates the Service agree that an arbitrator may only award such relief as a court of competent jurisdiction could award, limited to the same extent as a court would limit relief pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. An arbitrator may award attorneys’ fees and costs if a court would be authorized to do so, and may issue injunctive or declaratory relief if that relief is required or authorized by the applicable law, but that injunctive or declaratory relief may not extend beyond you and your dealings with us. Discovery may be limited in arbitration, and procedures are more streamlined than in court. Notwithstanding this arbitration agreement, you and the CMG Affiliate that operates the Service may bring appropriate claims against each other in small claims court, if the claims fall within the small claims court’s jurisdiction, or any other federal, state, or local government agency authorized by law to hear your claims.


Class Action Waiver: You and the CMG Affiliate that operates the Service agree that all claims or disputes between you and the CMG Affiliate that operates the Service will be arbitrated individually, and that there will be no class, representative, or consolidated actions in arbitration. If you or we bring a claim in small claims court, the class action waiver will apply, and neither of the parties can bring a claim on a class or representative basis. Furthermore, neither you nor we may participate in a class or representative action as a class member if the class action asserts claims that would fall within the scope of this arbitration agreement if they were directly asserted by you or us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this arbitration agreement shall not prohibit you or us from participating in any judgment or settlement in any litigation brought by a federal, state, or local government on behalf of you or us, excluding litigation brought by any relator or party in its capacity as a private attorney general. We both agree that this class action waiver is an essential part of our arbitration agreement and that if this class action waiver is found to be unenforceable by any court or arbitrator then the entire arbitration agreement set forth in this section will not apply to any claim or dispute between you and us. This class action waiver may not be severed from our arbitration agreement.


Informal Dispute Resolution: You and the CMG Affiliate that operates the Service agree to try to resolve disputes informally before resorting to arbitration. If the dispute cannot be resolved by telephone, you agree to notify us of the dispute by sending a written description of your claim to [Contact and Address] so that we can attempt to resolve it with you. If we do not satisfactorily resolve your claim within 30 calendar days of receiving notice of it, then you may pursue the claim in arbitration. Neither you nor we may initiate arbitration without first providing the other notice of the claim and following the informal dispute resolution procedure provided in this paragraph.


Arbitration Procedures: You and the CMG Affiliate that operates the Service agree that this Agreement affects interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act applies. All arbitrations shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The AAA’s rules are available on its website at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. If the claim asserted in arbitration is for less than $75,000, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply. If the claim asserted is for $75,000 or more, the Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. If there is a conflict between the AAA’s rules and this dispute resolution agreement, this dispute resolution agreement shall control. To initiate arbitration, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claims to [Contact and Address]. You must also comply with the AAA’s rules regarding initiation of arbitration. We will pay all filing fees and costs for commencement of an arbitration, but you will be responsible for your own attorneys’ fees and costs unless otherwise determined by the arbitrator pursuant to the terms of this agreement or applicable law. We will not seek to recover our fees and costs from you in the arbitration unless your claim has been determined to be frivolous. If you are successful in the arbitration, we will pay your reasonable attorney’s fees and costs. If you obtain an award from the arbitrator greater than our last written settlement offer, we will pay you $5,000 in addition to what you have been awarded in the arbitration. The arbitration will be held in a mutually convenient location. If you seek less than $10,000, then you may chose to hold the arbitration in person, via phone, or to have it decided based on written submissions.

Spam. We will immediately terminate any account which we believe is being used to transmit, or is otherwise connected with, any spam or other unsolicited bulk email in connection with any messaging service made available through the Service.

Otherwise you agree to pay our actual damages, to the extent such actual damages can be reasonably calculated.

Local News

  •     Congressman Doug Collins told Fox News this morning he would not accept an offer to be the next Director of National Intelligence. Original story: President Donald Trump said late Thursday he could make U.S. Rep. Doug Collins his permanent director of national intelligence, a move that could spare Republicans of a nasty intraparty fight against U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler.          The president told reporters on Air Force One that he is considering appointing the Gainesville Republican, one of his most visible defenders in Congress, for the coveted position.    It came days after Trump hinted he could intervene in the bitter race between Collins and Loeffler, a wealthy financial executive who Gov. Brian Kemp selected for the seat despite lobbying by Trump and some of his allies who favored the congressman.    “I know, Kelly, that you’re going to end up liking him a lot,” Trump said on Feb. 6 of Collins, adding that “something’s going to happen that’s going to be very good. I don’t know; I haven’t figured it out yet.” The president’s remarks triggered immediate talk in Georgia GOP circles that Collins could be in line for a prized appointment, though what exactly what that job could be was uncertain.   Collins’ aides could not immediately be reached for comment late Thursday, but earlier this month his camp was dismissive of the idea that he could be knocked out of the race to accept an appointment.    Trump on Wednesday tapped Richard Grenell, a U.S. ambassador to Germany, as acting director of national security, a post that oversees a vast part of the U.S. national security apparatus. Grenell is only expected to fill the post for a short time. Whoever Trump selects to permanently take the job would require U.S. Senate confirmation, which could set up a divisive debate if Collins is picked.  Republican leaders have searched for ways to diffuse the scathing race between the two, which has forced top national and Georgia GOP leaders to take sides at a time when the party can ill afford a divide.  Since Collins entered the race in January, he has assailed her as an out-of-touch millionaire, a “fake conservative” and a “pretend farmer.” Her allies have fired back, depicting him as a tax-and-spend phony.  The escalating feud has raised GOP concerns that Democrats could win the special election for the seat once held by U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, who retired in December because of growing health concerns. That’s because the race will feature multiple candidates from both parties on the same ballot, with no primaries to filter nominees. That could give Democrats an opening to exploit Republican divisions by unifying behind a candidate. The decision by Rev. Raphael Warnock to enter the race in January has amplified those fears, as the Democrat has quickly locked up support from state and national figures, including Stacey Abrams and the party’s U.S. Senate campaign arm.  Some Republicans also worry that the GOP feud could spill over to damage U.S. Sen. David Perdue, who is up for a second term in November, as well as Trump’s chances of holding a state he won by 5 percentage points in 2016. Still, Democrats have their own challenges to work out. The party hasn’t captured a statewide seat in more than a decade, and no Democratic presidential candidate has carried Georgia since Bill Clinton in 1992. And Warnock has failed to scare off two contenders from his own party who could complicate his chances of scoring an upset victory: Entrepreneur Matt Lieberman and former federal prosecutor Ed Tarver, who announced his campaign earlier Thursday. 
  • The Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia received the award for exhibition of the year at the Georgia Association of Museums Conference for the exhibition “Richard Hunt: Synthesis.” “Richard Hunt: Synthesis” was on view at the Georgia Museum of Art Oct. 20, 2018 – Feb. 3, 2019. Shawnya Harris, Larry D. and Brenda A. Thompson Curator of African American and African Diasporic Art at the Georgia Museum of Art, organized the exhibition to fill a notable gap in critical evaluation of Hunt’s career. Hunt, born in 1935, is an African American sculptor whose career has spanned more 60 years so far. His art helped redefine public sculpture in the late 20th and early 21st century through his 130-plus public commissions in more than 24 states. The exhibition featured both Hunt’s sculptures and his works on paper. It also highlighted formative moments and progressions in his artistic development. Welded and cast sculptures from the 1950s to the present were on display as well as models for public commissions dating back to the 1960s and lithographs and drawings that demonstrated Hunt’s complex sense of three-dimensional design. In conjunction with the exhibition, museum staff created a wide array of public programming, including a program for toddlers and their caregivers to a Teen Studio, numerous public tours, a Family Day attended by hundreds of people aa part of UGA’s Spotlight on the Arts festival, a screening of the documentary “Richard Hunt: Sculptor” and a public conversation with the artist himself. The exhibition also served as the basis for the museum’s fifth-grade tour program, as part of Experience UGA, allowing all fifth-grade students in the Clarke County School District to tour it and participate in a hands-on sculpture project designed to facilitate STEAM learning.

  • The announcement this past week that UGA bought out its scheduled 2021 game against San Jose State in Athens in order to play Clemson in a neutral-site game in Charlotte has a lot of fans excited (which couldn't be said about the now-dropped matchup with the Aztecs of the Mountain West conference). The addition of national powerhouse Clemson to next year's schedule justifiably has drawn praise across the college football landscape. The bold move is part of the aggressive upgrading of the Dawgs' nonconference schedule that head coach Kirby Smart and his football operations director, Josh Lee, have spearheaded over the past couple of years. The results so far have been impressive. Georgia has previously announced home-and-home series scheduled withTexas (2028 at Austin and 2029 in Athens), UCLA (2025 in Pasadena and 2026 in Athens), Florida State (2027 in Tallahassee and 2028 in Athens), Oklahoma (2023 in Norman and 2031 in Athens) and Ohio State (2030 in Athens and 2031 in Columbus). Plus a pair of home-and-home series with Clemson (2029 at Clemson and 2030 in Athens, and 2032 in Athens and 2033 at Clemson), and three other neutral-site Power 5 games at Atlanta's Mercedes Benz Stadium: this year againstVirginia, 2022 vs. Oregon, and 2024 vs. Clemson. (It was amusing to read one national site's estimation that Georgia-Clemson 'is about to become a bit of a rivalry.' Obviously, they don't know the tremendous history of the Georgia-Clemson series, which dates back to 1897 and included a long stretch of meeting every year. In fact, I feel safe in saying that, Jacksonville included, Georgia-Clemson was the Dawgs' hottest rivalry in the early '80s, with the peak being the 1982 game, which was nationally televised and played on Labor Day. It was the first night game to take place in Sanford Stadium in three decades, and it featured not only two Top 10 teams, but also the two most recent national champions.) As a longtime proponent of more games against the Tigers, I'm especially pleased that this gives Georgia and Clemson six games scheduled over the next 14 years, a vast improvement over the two-games-a-decade pattern they'd fallen into after the expansion of the SEC ended the annual meetings of the two programs located about 80 miles apart. The Dawgs and the Cats have met only eight times since 1987, with the most recent being 2014, when a Georgia win Between the Hedges avenged a loss at Clemson a year earlier. The addition of this game serves Clemson's interests as well, as the ACC powerhouse is looking to upgrade its nonconference schedules, since its weak conference opposition has been the subject of much griping nationally as the Tigers have become a regular participant in the College Football Playoff. UGA has turned heads across the country with its aggressive Power 5 scheduling over the coming decade and a half, and I'm all for it. As Athletic Director Greg McCarity told me this time last year, 'the scheduling model we're moving to in the future will be built around eight conference games, and Tech, and two more Power 5's and one non-Power 5 opponent.' So, in other words, only one 'cupcake' per season (as opposed to 2018, when Georgia had three such games in Athens). As I said then, it's an ambitious and somewhat daunting schedule model. But, McGarity said, 'That's our goal. Kirby is all about playing a tough schedule and playing quality opponents.' As McGarity said in a statement announcing the 2021 Clemson game, ' We will now have at least two Power 5 opponents on our schedule through 2033.' That will give the Dawgs at least 10 regular-season games each year against Power 5 conference teams (including the eight SEC games). This also means that Georgia will open away from Athens in a high-profile neutral-site game three years running: this season against Virginia at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game, 2021 in Charlotte, and back to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in 2022 to meet Oregon in another Chick-fil-A game. Still, despite all that, there's definitely room for improvement in Georgia's home scheduling. Just look at the 2021 season, which had a pretty weak lineup for fans in Athens even before they dropped the San Jose State game. Now, the six remaining games in Athens will consist of South Carolina, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, UAB and Charleston Southern, the latter another FCS opponent from the level of Division 1 NCAA football below the bowl division. That's not as dire as the 2018 season, which saw a nonconference lineup of Austin Peay, Middle Tennessee and UMass in addition to Tech, but it's definitely nothing to get excited about. I recognize that the filling out of the nonconference schedule with so-called 'cupcakes' is something of a necessary evil in college football, since Power 5 opponents usually demand a return game in a home-and-home deal. And, with the Dawgs filling one spot each year with Georgia Tech and looking to add a second Power 5 opponent each year, you expect the two remaining nonconference games to be a bit less challenging. Also, not all cupcakes are equal. Opponents taken from the Group of 5 conferences that rank just below the Power 5 range from true cupcakes to something more akin to college basketball's 'mid-majors.' (Maybe, if we're going to continue the food-related terminology for opponents you pay handsomely to come be a sacrificial lamb, we should call these teams something other than a cupcake. Let's borrow from the QuickTrip chain and call them 'snackles.') The true cupcakes tend to be programs along the lines of Louisiana-Monroe (on this year's schedule), UMass and Western Kentucky. Unfortunately, Georgia seems to be relying a bit too much on the allowance that schools at its level can count one game a season against FCS opponents, who really aren't even up to cupcake level. Let's call them 'bon-bons.' Looking at upcoming schedules, we see these bon-bons coming to Athens: East Tennessee State in 2020, Charleston Southern in 2021, Samford in 2022, Tennessee Tech in 2024, and the return of Austin Peay in 2025. Asking UGA fans shell out for tickets and travel to Athens, dealing with the attendant traffic and parking headaches, to see such games is a bit much. That's especially true for those of us who contribute to the Hartman Fund for the chance to buy season tickets. I thought it was noteworthy that, as part of the Georgia-Clemson scheduling musical chairs, Southern Cal was able to dump UC Davis and pick up San Jose State, meaning it will maintain its status of never having played an FCS opponent. (Only three Football Bowl Subdivision programs have never played a team from the FCS in football Notre Dame, UCLA and USC.) Really, it would suit me if Georgia never again added another FCS opponent to its schedule with the exception of Yale, which I still would love to see come back to Athens in 2029 to mark the centennial of the Georgia-Yale clash that dedicated Sanford Stadium. Unfortunately, as UGA told me last year, they tried to schedule Yale for 2029, but the Ivy League school wasn't interested. But, the Yalies aside, I'd like to see Smart and Lee focusing more on the Group of 5 than the FCS. And, maybe, they could give some thought to opponents at that level that have some regional interest. (Besides Georgia Southern, which has shown up occasionally on UGA schedules in recent decades, a game against Georgia State would be of much greater interest to fans. And, as Tennessee found out last year, the Panthers aren't to be taken too lightly.) There's another reason UGA ought to be thinking about an upgrading of its non-Power 5 opponents: attendance. Figures showing actual attendance at Sanford Stadium released by UGA show that lower-tier opponents tend to put fewer folks in the stands, sinking as low as 56,065 for Louisiana-Lafayette in 2016. In the 2018 season, the most recent for which real attendance (as opposed to paid attendance) figures have been released, Austin Peay brought only 78,050 to Sanford for the season-opener, and only 67,764 attended the UMass game. So, yeah, the seats may have been sold, but in an era when every game is televised, the fact that quite a few fans aren't bothering to show up for such games should send a message that such cupcakes aren't really what the UGA fan base wants to see. Like I said, overall, I'm very pleased with the aggressive scheduling Georgia has undertaken at the Power 5 level, but I'd like to see the rest of the nonconference schedule be less of a snoozefest.

  • Lawrence Cager might not be 100 percent for the NFL combine this week, but fans who have followed his career know better than to count him out. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Cager overcame a shoulder injury and bruised ribs to lead Georgia to a 24-17 win over Florida this season with 7 catches for 132 yards and a touchdown last season. pic.twitter.com/IsmaE5biyV Lawrence Cager (@lawrencecager3) October 28, 2019 'I was dead, I hadn't practiced or played in like 2 1/2 weeks, so you got to rise from the dead sometime,' Cager said after his historic performance. 'I wasn't going to miss this game for anything.' RELATED: Lawrence Cager performance at Florida one for the ages Cager did, however, miss the final three games of the season after suffering an ankle injury in a Nov. 27 practice and undergoing ankle surgery on Nov. 29. Cager's absences staggered the Georgia football team. Cager had three first down catches in the first half against South Carolina, but without him, the offense came apart and lost 20-17 overtime. The 10 Georgia football players invited to 2020 NFL Combine Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm completed more than 70 percent of his passes with Cager on the field. But without him, the pass game struggled. Fromm completed less than 50 percent when the graduate transfer from Miami was sidelined. 'He was the one guy, and this isn't from Jake, (but) he looked like the guy that Jake was really comfortable with,' Former New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl scout Jim Nagy said. 'He was kind of the bailout guy. Jake knew where Lawrence was going to be, and they looked like they were on the same page,' said Nagy, who has studied film of UGA players in preparation an ESPN analyst role for the NFL combine. 'That wasn't always the case (with other receivers). Especially the guys out on the perimeter. It looked like they weren't on the same page quite a bit.' Cager, despite his success for Georgia this season he had 33 catches for 476 yards and 4 TDs in nine games projects as a later-round pick heading into the combine. 'Where he gets drafted will be interesting,' Nagy said. 'But big picture, where Cager is concerned at the next level, is going to be what he does on special teams. 'If you don't project to be a top three receiver on an NFL team next year, and you're a four or a five or a six, you're going to have to play in the kicking game.' Georgia football coach Kirby Smart harps on that all the time. The message seems to get lost on some. Smart is actually doing his players a favor by teaching them to play special teams and utilizing them on the units. Former Bulldogs receiver Jayson Stanley went undrafted last year and didn't make a catch all season. But Stanley's special teams ability landed him a spot on the Miami Dolphins' practice squad, and he's now rostered with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Cager, however, didn't play special teams in his short time at Georgia. With the injuries he was battling he hurt his shoulder before the halfway mark of the season it was all he could do to play receiver. Nagy said that Cager impressed when he was on the field at Georgia. 'You heard from the people in Miami he was inconsistent catching the football, but he sure didn't look that way (at Georgia),' Nagy said. 'I was at the Notre Dame game, he made plays in that game, so yeah, the injury thing is real, he's going to have to work through that. And, Nagy said, Cager is going to have to convince teams is willing and able to play special teams. 'From a scout's perspective, that would be my reservation, never really seeing Lawrence do that,' Nagy said. 'Is he fast enough, is he aggressive enough, is he strong enough to be that guy to run down on kickoff or punt? 'I'm not saying he's not, but when you are talking about Day Three (NFL draft rounds 4-6) receivers, that's a huge part of the equation, not just what they do at receiver.' Nagy said very few college receivers transition quickly into one of the top three receiver spots on an NFL team, so they need to show value on special teams to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. 'Big picture, that's what Lawrence is going to be facing, that's what teams are battling with now,' Nagy said. 'If we take him in the fifth or the sixth round, is he going to be active on game day for us?' First things first, Cager needs to get himself active and healthy enough to work out for the NFL teams. If not at the combine, perhaps by the Georgia Pro Day, which is projected to be March 18. Cager has been mum, but earlier the year he put a short video out of himself running on a treadmill.

  • Georgia basketball senior Tyree Crump hit a last-second 3-point shot from the top of the key to lift the Bulldogs to an 80-78 victory over Vanderbilt on Saturday night. Georgia was down five points with less than 18 seconds left before it pulled off the improbable victory. 'it was dead-eye perfect,' UGA coach Tom Crean said. 'There was no short-arm, he snapped his wrist, it was picture-percent, and it was huge.' Commodores' guard Scottie Pippen Jr. missed two free throws with 5.1 seconds left, and Jordan Harris tipped out the second miss to Crump, who raced down court and launched the game-winner. Crump for the WIN https://t.co/8wNHw3rig4 Georgia Basketball (@UGABasketball) February 23, 2020 It's the first time Georgia (14-13, 4-10 SEC) has won back-to-back SEC games this season. It gives the Bulldogs a sweep over Volunteer State teams, as they beat Memphis, Tennessee and now Vanderbilt (9-18, 1-13). Georgia had beat No. 13 Auburn, 65-55, on Wednesday, to get much-needed confidence and momentum. 'It's perseverance, throughout the year,' Harris, who scored a season-high 17 points, said on the Georgia Sports Radio Network. 'We're living in the now.' The Bulldogs led for just 57 seconds of the 40-minute contest in Nashville, but they were ahead when it mattered most in the end. Anthony Edwards led UGA with 19 points, and point guard Sahvir Wheeler had 11 points and 5 assists. Georgia trailed by 11 points in the second half when a Toumani Camara dunk triggered a 12-0 run. Edwards capped the run with a drive that gave the Bulldogs a 52-51 lead with 11:56 left. It proved to be Edwards' final points in the game. The Commodores answered UGA's big run with an 8-0 burst of their own, however, and the lead was back up to 59-52 with 10:23 left. Vanderbilt appeared to be in control when Saben Lee, who scored a career-high 34 points, went to the free-throw line and hit two free throws to make it 78-73 with 22 seconds left. Wheeler raced downcourt and scored on a layup with 17.7 seconds left to narrow the gap to 78-75. Then it was Lee going back to the free-throw line with 11.3 seconds left. This time, he missed the front end of the one-and-one. Vanderbilt's Braelee Albert rebounded the miss, but he was ruled to have stepped out of bounds. Down three, Wheeler drove to the basket again, drawing a foul with 6 seconds left. Wheeler hit both free throws to make it a 78-77 game. Edwards fouled Pippen Jr. on the ensuing inbounds, fouling out of the game and setting up the final sequence. Vanderbilt held a 40-32 lead at the half after leading by as many as 11 points early. Edwards hit a 3-pointer at the 11:17 mark to cut into that 11-point margin and trigger a 10-0 run that left the Commodores up 20-19. Moments later, a Wheeler drive tied the game at 25-25. The Commodores answered with a 7-1 run, and took the 8-point lead into the half when Drew Weikert stole a back-court pass with two seconds left and laid it in.

  • The 2020 NFL Combine has yet to get underway, the players reporting on Sunday for an event that runs through March 2. But already, ESPN has a pay site article up on which players could stand out at the 2021 NFL combine, and Georgia has a couple of them. Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence is widely considered the odds-on favorite to be the top pick in 2021 draft. That would be good news for Georgia, which opens the 2021 season against Clemson. RELATED: Georgia football schedule 2021 adds Clemson Former Georgia quarterback Justin Fields, now at Ohio State, is also in the discussion as a potential early entry who could star at the 2021 NFL Combine. But the Bulldogs have a quarterback expected to be 'on the radar' and in the mix at the 2021 NFL Combine, too, according to ESPN writer Adam Rittenberg. Jamie Newman, a graduate transfer expected to get plugged into Kirby Smart's made-over offense, has the size (6-foot-4, 230 pounds) and arm strength to draw attention. RELATED: Georgia's Jamie Newman and George Pickens SEC's highest-rated QB-WR duo, per PFF ESPN recognized Georgia safety Richard LeCounte among its 'defenders to watch,' as well.

  • ATHENS Ten Georgia football players will be headed to Indianapolis for the NFL combine in the next week. Linebacker Tae Crowder is not one of them. The 10 Georgia football players invited to 2020 NFL Combine But Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy, who has four Super Bowl rings from his stints in Green Bay, New England, said he believes Crowder can still make an NFL roster. 'Getting the invite to Indy isn't the end all be all, whatsoever,' Nagy said during the DawgNation Ingles On The Beat Show. 'He'll have his pro day and the rest of the process to work it out.' Crowder was a key to the nation's best defense last season from his inside linebacker position. The Bulldogs finished last season ranked No. 1 in scoring defense and rushing defense and No. 3 in total defense and No 8 in pass efficiency defense. 'I'll say this about Tae Crowder, to me, the arrow is pointing up with him,' Nagy said. 'When you're in scouting, you talk about guys that are ascending players, and I think Tae is doing that.' Crowder, a 6-foot-3, 235-pounder, was a late bloomer of sorts. A noted running back and receiver prospect in high school, Crowder converted to the linebacker position under Coach Kirby Smart. Crowder finished second on the team with 62 tackles last season, and many believe his best football is ahead of him. 'I think he's playing his best football this year, no doubt,' Nagy said. 'He's long, he can run, he can play in space. I think he's going to make somebody's team on special teams.' Nagy pointed out that Georgia linebacker Natrez Patrick made the Los Angeles Rams 53-man roster last season without an invite to the NFL combine. 'Tae Crowder to me is a better prospect than Natrez, and to Natrez's credit he signed with the Rams as an undrafted free agent and made their 53, so that's awesome for him,' Nagy said. 'But if you're just grading players, Tae is a better prospect in my mind than Natrez was, so it surprised me (Crowder) wasn't in another all-star game, that was a little surprising, and then the combine snub. 'I hope he uses that as some fuel moving forward. I was part of a lot of teams that drafted guys with no all-star game, no combine, and that played for a long time.'
