Thursday Morning ‘Dawg Bites Won’t Turn Around

Der Kommissar’s in town.

Welcome to Thursday, Bulldog Fans! News is fairly scarce around these parts, especially until the college bowl season begins.

A little something did rear it’s ugly head recently. It seems to be around possible playoff expansion for the existing CFP system. Though if you only interview B1G administrative-type folks, you’re bound to hear less than a thorough and objective vetting of the issue. Even with the crazy pro-expansion/anti-expansion platforms, let’s face it... the idea is going nowhere without the one voice that will sway everything. And everyone knows who that one person is: SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. So Greg... alles klar, Herr Kommissar?

Now onto news and notes of the Bulldog variety:

The Sugar Bowl game may be 3 weeks away, but they have joined the news cycle by announcing the 2nd Sugar Bowl Hall of Fame inductees. Included in the 10 honorees are former Bulldog player Scott Woerner, and former Auburn player Bulldog coach Vince Dooley. Both instrumental in the 1981 Sugar Bowl victory by Georgia, I refuse to recognize that a Sugar Bowl was held in 1982 or 1983.

Speaking of the game, at least one AP writer likes the Bulldogs’ chances. If you want to see what is thought of the other 79 bowl games, be my guest.

What do the locals think of the matchup against the heavily favored Bulldogs? Cautiously optimistic.

And how will they do it? With 2019 Heisman hopeful gunslinger Sam Ehlinger. You’ll never guess who else might win the Heisman.

Continuing his hardware collection, Georgia cornerback Deandre Walker was named to the American Football Writers Association All-America First Team.

Right on the heels, Walker also gets tabbed by the Sporting News for it’s All-America First Team.

With those accolades, many expect Walker to be drafted on the first day by the NFL. A mock draft is now out, and it shows DGD Deandre going #16 to the Eagles. Oh, that should have been a spoiler alert. But it’s a veiled AJC link, so you probably don’t mind.

Feel free to post your own news gleanings in the comments below. And as always...


Thursday Morning ‘Dawg Bites Needs A Smoke

Welcome to Thursday, Bulldog Fans! We’ve made it through the regular season and have started the Georgia Football postseason. Unfortunately that will only be 2 games, and one... well, you know how that turned out. Last season we were lucky enough to enjoy 15 games of Bulldog football. We are blessed to have 14 this year, though a chance at 15 seems like it was ruefully torn from our grasp.

So we have only one game left. One shot. One slug. One bullet. One hit. One toke. One drag. One tap. One... last... cigarette.

If you noticed, and most of you did not care to, I stuck with an ‘80’s cheese pop theme for the Bulldogs regular season. During this dead period (not recruiting, just college football games) we will slowly untangle ourselves from the Me Decade and explore other genres. Remember, this isn’t just for your entertainment. It’s because my wife won’t let me yell at the neighborhood kids in my yard and trampling my begonias.

Now onto news and notes of the Bulldog variety:

The coaching carousel has begun. What started with a whimper is now officially a whine. And as you probably know, the Georgia Bulldogs were not immune as UGA DC Mel Tucker was announced as Head Buff at Colorado. But how will that affect the big names on the defensive recruiting board?

At least one blue chipper says he will stay the course. And good news for the Sugar Bowl, a sure-fire NFL draft 1st rounder will help us wrangle the Longhorns.

The Athens Banner-Herald gives us a breakdown of who made the All-SEC teams and some other post-season awards.

Speaking of hardware, even the Bulldog coaching staff is up for some bling too. Apparently the committee allows for head coaches who ignore half of the game entirely.

It’s never too early to make predictions for the playoffs and the Sugar Bowl. So the Red & Black just went ahead and did the thing.

How ‘bout them Spike Squads?!?!? A nice little look at the boys and girls who ink it up and strap it on every Saturday in Section 109.

If you comb through the internet detritus long enough, you find a nugget every now and then. This serious article by a Longhorns beat writer fits the bill. A little conjecture, an attempt to balance it out with transitive properties, throw in some self-deprecation, toss with conspiracy theory, view 3 sides of the same coin, and there you have it.

Most of the athletic squads have a few days off, presumably for final exams. But if you’re near Athens this weekend, check out the first look for the Gym Dogs at the Steg. I’m anxious to see how Coach Kupets Carter rebounds from a not-quite-up-to-standard 2017-18 campaign beset by injuries.

Stick around for more news and recruiting updates, possibly more schadenfreude at the expense of other programs. All I want for Christmas is a textbook selling scandal in Gainesville. And as always...
