Nick Chubb never thought about leaving Georgia early, went out in style


I never really thought about leaving. It just wasn’t right.
My family created a legacy in Chubbtown, Georgia and I wanted to make them proud. And do it in Georgia.
My career in Athens had high highs and an injury that was low … and hard … real hard.
I never let myself doubt that I would come back even stronger than before.
And neither did my coaches, or my teammates, or my family, or the strongest fan base in this nation.
Your support, and love, and encouragement impacted me more than you could imagine.
I never really thought about leaving. It just wasn’t right. We had unfinished business and didn’t want to imagine future regrets of declaring early.
My family always finished what they started and it is ingrained in me.
UGA fans deserved a championship and we wanted to do all we could to give it to them.
Because those fans gave all they had to us.
With Sony, Davin (Bellamy) and Lorenzo (Carter) coming back too, I knew it would be special. And it was.
The season truly felt magical. After the Auburn loss and heading into the SEC Championship Game as underdogs, it just made us that more hungry.
Redemption was incredible as we won that championship.
And Pasadena felt like a dream. Stadium packed with UGA red. An atmosphere that may never be topped in my career. Wow.
And we were a play or two away from winning it all back in Atlanta …
A lot of what we accomplish in this life is defined by how we treat others and the memories we take with us.
Thank you DawgNation for how you treated me and we all have memories together we will never forget.

 Woods’ Tour Championship victory likely one of his biggest ever

Tiger Woods wins. Honestly, when he began playing again this season following the medical Hail Mary of spinal fusion surgery, I never thought I’d be typing those three words. Much less seeing him win while turning East Lake into one great green mosh pit. Underestimating Woods, you see, is a fool’s prerogative. His wire-to-wire win at the...

When that long-awaited, oft-debated and sorely-doubted next win did come for Tiger Woods, it was so deceivingly simple. It required nothing more from him than to be steady while all others at East Lake were losing their minds. Just stand strong in a swirl of the very chaos his presence atop the leaderboard created – you know, be Tiger Woods &ndash...

Obviously, we've got an opportunity to win the game in that situation. So, we just didn't execute across the board well enough. You know, really in that situation, and before the half as well, where...
