Ryan Jordan:: Alright guys, I've got Joe on the line and were ready for questions.....

AK Dawg:: Joe compare your game to Chris Leak?

AlDog:: Lowiq's question. How do the folks in N.C. feel about the UGA program?
Joe Cox:: Everyone in NC loves the UGA program. Everyone has told me I made a great decision

bhdawg:: Joe how did you do at the elite 11 camp, give us a report please
Joe Cox:: I had a great camp out there. They ranked me 2nd out of the 11 guys

RecruiterDawg:: Are you actively recruiting players for us now that your boy Mohamed is committed?
Joe Cox:: Yes, everytime I get a chance to see guys in NC that UGA wants, I talk to them. I do my best to talk up Georgia anytime I can

okidog:: Joe what are your strengths and your weaknesses
Joe Cox:: I'd say my weaknesses is speed. My strengths are reading defense and accuracy

Joe Cox:: I went to the UT game at home in 2002. No UGA games last year

RecruiterDawg:: What do you feel you need to improve on this year?
Joe Cox:: I need to focus on how fast defenses are going to be. I need to do everything I can to prepare myself for the next level

dawgfan34:: What was the biggest selling point about UGA???

Joe Cox:: Absolutely. Our #1 goal is to be State Champs

RecruiterDawg:: you ever play against Ellerbe and Bryant? Thoughts?
Joe Cox:: We played them last year. Bryant was the best athlete in the state last year. Ellerbe is going to be very good also. I think Jamar was a better WR than a QB. They had him all over the field

FredGoDeep:: How hard was it to call duke back and give them the news?
Joe Cox:: It was really hard to just pick up the phone and do it. The decision to go to UGA over Duke was simple though. I knew that's where I wanted to be

Joe Cox:: I get some stuff from South Carolina and FSU still. I've called a lot of schools and told them I didnt want people to recruit me though. I havent even opened a letter since I committed to UGA

FredGoDeep:: Joe did you learn alot while at the Elite 11?
Joe Cox:: Yes I did. I learned a lot out there. We learned every type of coverage a defense could possibly be in. Everything to do with QB, I was taught there

pater15:: Joe, do you plan on redshirting?
Joe Cox:: I do plan to RS

ApuNahasapeemipetilon:: have you ever been compared to jeff garcia?

Joe Cox:: I thought Mark Sanchez going to USC was the best QB

FredGoDeep:: Whats the conversations with Jon C been like now since ya'll know yall will be facing off against each other the next few years Joe?
Joe Cox:: We never really talk about it. We were out there playing that NCAA2005 game and he was ragging at me... We just joke about it

54dawg:: Being that your Dad played college Fball, has it been a plus in your developement as a college prospect?
Joe Cox:: It has. My dad told me a lot about recruiting and how he handled it. He had never decommitted but he said the hardest thing to do was telling an interested school that you weren't going there

Joe Cox:: I haven't seen that yet. I'm ready to do the Dawgwalk though

Joe Cox:: As many home games as I possibly can. I'll definitely be at LSU and UT

dawgfan34:: Joe have you met David Greene and if so what do you think of him???
Joe Cox:: I met David Greene. He has a really level head. He's not cocky, he just talked to me like he was another person. I really respected that. I've been to a few schools where the QB's will just nod their head at you, but David actually spoke to me

wrmsprngsdawg:: How do your parents feel about you going to UGA. Aren't they Duke grads?
Joe Cox:: They're happy for me. My mom wasn't really mad, but she was happy about me going to Duke too. My dad went to the UGA camp with me and saw what I saw. He was just as happy as I was

FredGoDeep:: Describe Mohamed Massaquoi as a player Joe
Joe Cox:: Mohamed has got his speed up. He has the best hands by far in NC. He's really good off the jam. I havent seen anyone who can get a good press on him yet. He runs the best routes of any WR I've ever thrown too

wrmsprngsdawg:: How do you like Richt's offense.How is it similar to the offense you're running in hs?

Boehmdawg:: Can't wait to see the MM to JC connection.

AlDog:: Did you get to see the new dorms?
Joe Cox:: I saw the dorms when they were first under construction, but Mohamed went down there to visit and he got to go in them. He said they were absolutely amazing

Aldog:: What do you like about Athens?
Joe Cox:: The whole atmosphere of the town. It's not too big and everyone is crazy about football. That's something I didn't see at the NC schools.

NCK9:: What did you think of the co-eds in Athens?
Joe Cox:: Ohhh (laughing). I think it speaks for itself. Some lovely girls down there!

FredGoDeep:: Joe tell us about yourself off the field, girlfriend, hobbies, fav music, movie.
