A Record I’d Like to See Fall

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,…

Big D In the Classic City

Can 3-4 Cover GEORGIA’s Problems

We have had so many dope skill position athletes at GEORGIA since I started school there in 1990: Hines Ward, Knowshon Moreno, Garrison Hearst, Matthew Stafford, Andre Hastings, David Greene, AJ Green, Eric Zeier, the Edwards brothers, Ben Watson, Champ…

Beal and Leslie Put on Two-Man Show In Streaky Half of Play: Vandy led most of the half on the shooting prowess of All-SEC Senior Guard Justin Beal (12 pts.) and takes to the locker room in Nashville with a…

A rebuilding year

Florida and Tennessee beat us so badly it felt like old times. We was robbed by them dern refs in the LSU game. Okie State was a road test we were unprepared for. The Kentucky debacle was a tough give…

Wrong Overshadowed Right

Think about this: For the first time in the history of this storied program GEORGIA gave up 38 or more points five times, all during the regular season. That’s right. Five out of twelve times that we lined up, we…

Spring Musings

New hoops coach Mark Fox was in awe of the red-and black crowd at halftime. And Big Hairy Blawg was on scene too for a beautiful saturday in Athens. It was the G-Day Game and the fans came out in…

Dawgs-Big Green, O-Town

GEORGIA plays the Michigan State Spartans on New Year’s Day at 1:00 pm (ABC), in Orlando, my former town – I lived there for a year (1995). The season I was down there was when Robert Edwards burst onto the scene at running…

At the end of the regular season…

And the end of the state win streak, I still say thanks for the entertainment. Sure, we were a preseason number one coming off a number two campaign and we lost three games. But when I think of it, we were…

what we need to do

I have now watched the Carolina game 3 times (Yes, I am crazy). Resultant, I know what we need to do to fix our glaring offense problems. And as much as just winning is everything and as delusional as our fanbase…
