Sorry boss but if two freshman corners from A&M who is not even known for great defense can neutralize Cooper then UGA more than has the personnel to do it. Question is has Amari learned anything from that day?
I have watched uga play a lot this year. There is not one corner on that team that can hold coop, sorry. There are a lot of scouts/evaluators but they can be and are often wrong. There was a lot of scouts ( not media personnel) that said uf couldnt run on FSU. Wrong! No flame but just because a " scout" says something don't make it gospel
How did they slow down cooper? What game were u watching? If aj was on cooper would have had a record night. He had 6 catches for 136 yards and 1 TD. The only game that coop hasn't performed in was LSU and he was killing their DBs at the beginning before he tweeked his ankle again. AJ just missed him a lot that game also. The only games he don't have really good stats since he became the starter when white went out was the LSU game and other games were he didn't have to play much.

I think he's a more athletic version of Darius Hanks. Obviously, he's going to be a very good player, but we don't know how good yet. I guess we gonna find out!
Some people bring a knife to a gun fight. Mark Richt brings a Super Soaker 2000.
What game was this? Only time he been slowed down was due to injury or the LSU when aj was terrible and coop was hurt
He has 3 100 yard games. He is my favorite player btw. He is also a TF and not Jerry rice(yet).
He has only been a starter 8 games. Missed a lot of the LSU and miss st game with an ankle injury. So 3 100 yard games out of six full games is not bad. Not to mention none of the other games were close except the tamu in which he played more than 3 quarters. I just want to know what game u considered him to be neutralized in. Are u simply going by the stats and not taking into account the circumstances of each game? Just my opinion he hasn't truly been stopped. I like u as a poster so honestly not trying to come off as an ass lol. Just difference of opinion I guess. I just don't think uga has a corner better than miss st two corners and he was working them until his ankle injury and the game turned into a blowout by halftime
UGA DB's are top notch all right. Thats why they got absolutely shredded by Tennessee.
Not exactly Rivas island Cooper is going against Saturday.
He has 45 catches for 767 yards and 8 TD's. He did all that in basically 9 games. He did not have many balls thrown his way the first 2 games of the season and was out most of the game against LSU. I have not seen him neutralized by anyone. Not saying it can't be done but it won't be as easy as putting a teams top corner on him. They will need to bracket him with a Safety as well.
To the OP. Black is explosive. He reminds me a lot of Jarvis Landry at LSU. Probably a little faster but the hands and quickness are very similar.
true, he only has 3 100 yard games but it isn't that simple. He went off against Tennessee and then got hurt the next week against MSU missing nearly the entire 2nd half. He played very little against LSU and was pulled very early against Western Carolina(rightfully so). He isn't Jerry Rice but Sanders Commings isn't Deion Sanders either...for that matter, he isn't even Demarcus Milliner.
Darrell Revis from the Jets...it's his nickname as he he is widely considered the NFLs best lock down corner. Basically, he is on an island.
Uncle! Cooper will crush UGA. They have nobody that can compete with him. I apologize.
I'm very well aware of who Darrelle Revis is and of the fact that he is the best cornerback in the NFL. I am also familiar with the term "Revis Island". What I am not familiar with is the term "Rivas Island". I am assuming it is a small island off the coast of South Africa. I also hear that the Tuna there have constructed a series of breathing apparatus made from kelp. With which, they can trap certain amounts of oxygen that allow them to go ashore and hunt lion.

Finally. WTH u been smokin?
No deed to apologize. If you had actually used the word compete in the beginning, I don't think you would have had many disagree. Certainly not me. You said he would be neutralized...not sure what that meant but I do think Coop will have a decent day against them if he gets 1-on-1 coverage. No-one thinks he is Jerry Rice but he isn't Russell Shepherd either.
Lol there u go man. I knew u had a little homer in you....
I wear Marvin Constant pajamas.
What kind of awesome story could this turn out to be??? Player hasn't played all year, Saban pulls the redshirt off and he scores a couple of long TDs because they have no idea about him or how he runs patterns...makes for a good opening on College Football Final if you ask me!!!
Different for me. Watching Black in high school, his YAC ability after the catch was of the elite variety. He made a lot of guys miss with sharp COD cuts after the catch and in the return game.
I do think ball in the air, Cooper is straight line faster and tracks is with more pop.

More of Bell type than a Cooper type. Smaller, very fast, probably not as physical as AC.
Would you consider tonights performance "neutralized"?
