Familiar Territory

Beauty and the BEAST

Classic City early September Between the Hedges, and a lovely afternoon for the start of SEC divisional play. Only one SEC matchup aired in week one, an instant classic which saw upstart Ole Miss win on the road in Nashville…

No Time to Wallow in the Valley

South Carolina’s flagship institution is not the historic football power in the Palmetto State. That distinction falls to Death Valley, where Clemson edged geographic and traditional rival Georgia 38-35 Saturday night behind five touchdowns by stellar senior quarterback Tajh Boyd….

Eleven

High noon Between the Hedges, moments after a touching Senior Day ceremony ended. Without it being said by many, it was notable too for the number of NFL draft-ready Georgia juniors playing their final game in Athens. This team will…

Border Bashed

The #3, #4 and #5 teams were defeated Saturday, but only GEORGIA was really beaten badly. Good news: it is one loss – heck, we lost four football games last season. Bad news: plenty. Gamecock QB Shaw completed only six…

Diamond Dawgs Take Tech at The Ted

UGA did much of their damage to 9th-ranked Georgia Tech in the 4th inning and then added an insurance run late, which proved unnecessary as the DAWGS beat their arch rival Yellow Jackets by 2 runs in front of over…

DAWGS’ Prospects for 2011

NCAA football season is now complete with the SEC going 5-5 in bowls and winning a 5th straight National Championship. The SEC East division finished a terrible 1-4, with only 5-loss Florida getting a bowl win. With no SEC team…

4-1 runs have bookended 1-4 stretch

Over the past fifteen football games played by the University of Georgia, the Dawgs have won only nine and lost six, a fireable record for the head coach. With the win over Idaho State, UGA has gone 4-1 over five…

How Dawgs can win big in 2010

With Tim Tebow and Joe Haden gone from Florida, and with Jonathon Dwyer and Bay-Bay Thomas gone from Tech, and with new quarterbacks and new running backs starting at Auburn and Tennessee, our four biggest rivals will be teams with…

A Record I’d Like to See Fall

My Great Uncle Griff – Dad’s dad’s brother – dominated the Southwest Conference as a running back in the late 1910’s. He graduated from Rice University in 1920, is a member of their school’s Hall of Fame and held nearly…

Ranking Our Rivals

1. florida – Until we play at least even with them over a multi-year period in the Cocktail Party, we will not be where we want to be – consistently ranked in the Top 10. UGA has never had a…

CLEMSON-DAWGS spring game talk brings flood

Memories of Beating Clemson: 1. Nirvana was in ATHENS at the 40 Watt that night, and it was my only chance to ever see them play. But it was in competition with a highly-ranked Clemson (I think they were #12)…
