Richt, AJ, Back 8, All-Decade, Bobo

Get the Picture

Like Larry Munson used to say, Get the Picture, you guys. The television announcers are saying, ” Georgia can’t stop Tech.” Tech scores then shanks an extra point. 35-34 Dawgs. Brandon Boykin has played and tackled well but fumbles the…

UGA-Boise State Primetime Tilt for Kickoff Classic

Never the same as last year

Every year I follow a multitude of preseason prognosticators and guffaw. They generally have very little deviation from the end of the previous season’s order of finish in any given league. This is just amateur of these so-called professionals. They…

What if UGA Struggles Again?

If we drop more than three games next season, I expect a full onslaught of angry Dawgs to storm the office of Damon Evans and call for Richt’s head. Damon would stand by Coach, but that is a highly-realistic expectation,…

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…
