Jameson Williams Knee Injury. Torn ACL, MCL in Alabama vs Georgia National Championship Game

Jameson Williams Knee Injury. Torn ACL, MCL in Alabama vs Georgia National Championship Game

All right, so hey guys. What's up? It's Stephen Dunn, I'm a holistic physical therapist here in Westlake Hills, Texas. We're about three or four miles from downtown Austin. Today, I want to go over a knee injury that was sustained in the national championship game between Georgia and Alabama a couple days ago by a guy by the name of Jameson Williams, who was definitely an impact player. So we're going to watch this video and I'm going to explain what happened and how it happened and a little bit of that so let's watch the video.Okay, so here we are at the video. What we're going to watch is a live version and a replay version of #1, the receiver for Alabama catching the ball. When he catches the ball he places his left foot down to plant, to cut to the right. He's going to try to make a juke and when he makes that move, it's a non-contact injury, meaning no one touched him. It injured in the position that he was in and what happened is his knee goes into this angle called a valgus angle. This means his knee is coming in and his foot is going out and I'll explain that in a little more detail in a moment.Let's watch the play and let me warn you if you're squeamish and don't like to see injuries or nasty things, then don't watch this part of the video. It can make you have a little bit heebie jibbies...There's the catch, plant, boom. Down. Done and it’s his left knee... now watch in slow motion and you'll be able to see very clear when he injure it. When I was watching this live I knew he was out with significant injury and slow motion confirmed it. And by the way, I'm a huge LSU fan, Geaux Tigers!

Angry Dawgs: No. 3 Georgia beats No. 2 Michigan 34-11 in CFP


MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — With one overwhelming half at the Orange Bowl, No. 3 Georgia showed that a humbling loss to Alabama did not break the Bulldogs.
In fact, it might have made them even stronger.
Stetson Bennett threw three touchdown passes, Nakobe Dean led an angry defense and Georgia returned to its dominant ways, beating No. 2 Michigan 34-11 on Friday night to advance to the College Football Playoff championship.
Georgia (13-1) earned a rematch with Southeastern Conference nemesis Alabama (13-1) in the title game Jan. 10 in Indianapolis.
It was a little less than a month ago the Crimson Tide rolled through the Bulldogs, shattering their air of invincibility after a 12-0 regular season in which they were hardly challenged.
If there was any question about whether the damage from that 41-24 setback would linger, the Bulldogs answered them quickly.
Georgia became the first team in the eight-year history of the CFP to score on each of its first five possessions and led 27-3 at halftime.
Michigan (12-2) entered its first playoff appearance off a milestone season, having ended a long drought against rival Ohio State on the way to winning the Big Ten.
“Let’er rip,” Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh told ESPN moments before kickoff.
The Bulldogs most certainly did, playing like a team out to prove a point.
Georgia scored touchdowns the first two times it had the ball, moving it at will against Heisman Trophy runner-up Aidan Hutchinson and the Michigan defense.
Bennett found freshman tight end Brock Bowers free in the flats for an 8-yard touchdown pass to cap an 80-yard opening drive.

Georgia outlasts Western Carolina, 85-79


ATHENS, Ga. – Holding off a game effort from Western Carolina, the University of Georgia men’s basketball team topped the Catamounts, 85-79, before 7,271 spectators Monday evening at Stegeman Coliseum.
Sophomore Kario Oquendo led Georgia (5-6) with 21 points on 6-for-13 shooting, with senior Braelen Bridges pitching in with 17 points. Senior Noah Baumann led the Bulldogs with a career-high 11 rebounds, while graduate Aaron Cook also set a new career best with 12 assists to go with 13 points. For the night, the Bulldogs shot 44.6 percent from the field, including a 47.1 percent clip in the second half.
“For us, we adjusted,” said Georgia head coach Tom Crean following the game. “We had a really good finish to the game with the scoring. They were mixing defenses, and our guys were really active and playing through it. I’m proud we got this one under our belt now because I didn’t like our confidence at all on Saturday night. I thought our confidence came alive in this game.”
Georgia started fast, running out to a 10-3 lead in the opening three minutes before a short drought helped Western Carolina (6-6) narrow the margin to four. However, the Bulldogs found success from beyond the arc, returning to a double-digit lead thanks to consecutive triples from Ridgnal. As the half wore on, the Catamounts continued to cut into the Bulldog lead, making it a three-point game with 3:40 play after running off an 8-2 run.
In need of a timely bucket, Georgia found one with a 3-pointer from sophomore Jabri Abdur-Rahim coming out of the final media timeout. Western Carolina again countered with scores on three of its final four possessions, sending the teams to the locker room with Georgia leading 35-33.

Florida vs. Georgia score, takeaways: Gators pounded by No. 1 Dawgs as more questions arise


Anticipation over the first start of redshirt freshman quarterback Anthony Richardson’s career fizzled before 30 minutes were played in the 2021 edition of the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail party. That’s bound to happen when three second-quarter turnovers turn a tooth-and-nail battle into a blowout that eventually led to a 34-7 win for the No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs over the Florida Gators.

Vanderbilt falls to Georgia State in first loss of the season


In a low-scoring affair in which pitchers on both sides shined and the Commodore bats were mostly silenced, Vanderbilt was defeated 4-2.
“They did a nice job of holding us down,” Coach Tim Corbin said after the game. “We couldn’t get anything going with our bats and couldn’t get anything going with our legs obviously. Just a tougher night offensively. I thought we pitched well enough and defensively we played a pretty good game too.”
Sophomore Thomas Schultz made just his second career start for Vanderbilt and was solid with 4.1 innings pitched, four strikeouts and two earned runs in 75 total pitches.
On the other side, Georgia State’s starting pitcher, Paul Watson, dazzled as he pitched five full innings and only surrendered one run while striking out seven.
The Panthers struck first in the top of the second as Elian Merejo led off with a bloop-single before advancing to second on a wild pitch. A sacrifice bunt pushed Merejo to third and a Dalton Pearson sacrifice fly eventually scored him.
Facing their first deficit of the early season, the Commodores quickly responded in the bottom of the second. Tate Kolwyck drew a one-out walk and Dominic Keegan advanced him to third with a two-out single. Enrique Bradfield Jr. then stepped up to the plate and laced a single under the second baseman’s glove to score Kolwyck and tie the game at one.
Georgia State pulled ahead again in the fifth inning as the Panthers turned Dalton Pearson’s leadoff single and steal into a run thanks to a Tanner Gallman double off the wall in deep left field. Schultz walked the next batter and that was the end of his night as Corbin opted to bring in Nick Maldonado in relief.

Georgia basketball gets physical with Cincinnati, tops Bearcats

Georgia basketball gets physical with Cincinnati, tops Bearcats

ATHENS — Georgia basketball proved it could measure up to good competition on Saturday night, winning decisively over battle-tested Cincinnati in Stegeman Coliseum.
The Bulldogs ran their record to 6-0 with the 83-68 victory, sealing their best start to a season for a UGA team since the 1982-83 Final Four unit.
“We knew the competition, the strength and the length would be a test,” said Georgia coach Tom Crean, who’s in his third season leading the program. “We really rose to the level of the competition. It wasn’t just us matching their energy and toughness, we brought our own.”
Toumani Camara had 19 points and 10 rebounds to lead a Bulldogs’ team that had four players score in double figures.
Sahvir Wheeler had 12 points and 7 assists, and Justin Kier had 18 points and was 5-of-5 from the free-throw line.
“We went really hard this week, just to show we can be physical as well,” Kier said. “This showed the maturity of our team.”
Camara went to the rim for a basketball at the 4:26 mark of the first half to spark a 15-0 run that left Georgia up 49-26 as the teams headed to intermission.
The Bearcats (2-4), who lost at No. 12 Tennessee by a 65-56 count, failed to get closer than 12 points in the second half.
“We just trust each other, the momentum is always up for grabs,” Camara said. “We had the momentum at the moment, and we just kept on going.
“I think we learned how good we can be playing together and staying focused on the task.”
Crean was certainly impressed with the 6-foot-8, 220-pound sophomore.
“For him to play that way against a physical team like Cincinnati said a lot,” said Crean, whose team won the battle of the board 39-38 despite being out-sized in the paint.

5-star Georgia QB signee Brock Vandagriff leads Prince Avenue Chrstian to state title game

NORCROSS — Brock Vandagriff let himself soak up the moment with a few minutes to go in Prince Avenue Christian’s runaway 50-3 win Friday night at Wesleyan.
“I can’t believe we are going to play for a state championship now,” Vandagriff said. “I’ve been dreaming about this my whole life man.”
He has. His Wolverines will. Behind three passing touchdowns and one score on the ground, the Bulldog signee led Prince Avenue (12-1) to the Georgia High School Association’s Class A private state championship game currently scheduled for Dec. 28.
“It is an amazing feeling,” Brock Vandagriff said. “I can’t even describe it honestly. Me and my Dad have dreamed about this forever. To be able to bring it to Prince is something special. I think this is the second time we have been to the state championship in the whole history of Prince Avenue.”
Vandagriff is the star quarterback. His father, Greg, is the head coach who was able to exorcise a few state semifinal demons with the victory.
