Cocktail Party (c) ’06

Full-length version of my award-winning football poem: This is what it comes down to. This, and Auburn, but this sets up the Auburn game. For the Auburn game to be truly huge, the Dawgs have to win this game. Every…

Okefenokee Oar at Stake

Jacksonville, FL: Inside the numbers. 24-20, 17-9, 23-20, 3 straight. We are favored by 11. Is it 10 more wins or 9 more wins? Depends on your perspective, but I could give the Gators the nod there in a predecessor…

People of the Program

“PEOPLE OF THE PROGRAM – Big Cat Candid:” UGA Legend Jonas Jennings and Program Insider Han Vance Rap about Georgia Football and Their Time Spent Attending UGA in the 1990s. Jonas Jennings:“Booger McFarland was right on my head. We were…

The Strongest Unit

There seems to be no way for GEORGIA to struggle on offense this year. Last season, the Dawgs led all of NCAA football in a key stat: yardage gained per play (7.08). And everyone coming back has started big football…

Like It’s 1980

Private school glory for the remote control holders last night, as the Stanford Cardinal (without Andrew Luck) and the little Baylor Bears (without RGIII) beat the numbers one and two teams in the BCS. One and two had never before…

What Has Been Missing In Program

Home dominance. Miami’s semi-professional run in the old Orange Bowl. Nebraska’s mid-1990s Sea of Red. LSU of late at night in Death Valley, contributing to LSU having the best record in the SEC in the past dozen years (UGA 2nd)….

The Big Four

For the first time in his mostly successful eleven-year head coaching career at the nation’s oldest state chartered public university, Mark Richt was able to do what Jim Donnan and Ray Goff never could: beat our four biggest rivals in…

Georgia-Florida Week

It’s bye week in Athens. Hugs and pats on the back for beating both SEC Tennessee schools and both SEC Mississippi schools and surviving a half football season tied for first place in the SEC East and still mostly in…

Georgia-Alabama Rivalry Undone

Perhaps the most storied program in the history of college football (certainly top 5), the University of Alabama does not regularly play it’s neighbor, the University of Georgia. There was a day and a time when Vince Dooley annually faced…

Georgia-Florida Week

The red hot University of Georgia Bulldogs are coming off a big win at Tennessee and facing their biggest rival this Thursday. At football schools, rivalries ring true, and the fact that the University of Florida has mostly owned the…
