Bring on the Alabama State Schools

Florida sits atop the SEC East at the end of their SEC season, but it is not where they wanted to be. Georgia alum Will Muschamp led them to a one-loss season, but that loss was to the tiebreaker-owning Bulldogs,…

Coaching Points: Dawgs Little Bit Off, Gurley On

True freshman running back Todd Gurley tied an NCAA record held by multiple players with his 100-yard touchdown return for a kickoff – on his first career return. UGA great Brandon Boykin, Georgia’s returner from last season, is notably the…

Beautiful Day for Football

4-1 runs have bookended 1-4 stretch

Disappointing Triumvirate: Green, Ealey, C. King

When I’m publicly having to answer this question to LSU fans and BAMA fans: What happened to GEORGIA? We have problems as a program. We have been a huge two-year disappointment, after being disappointed with a #10 national finish three…

Can UGA Vanquish Growing Pains?

GEORGIA can do a whole lot to begin to vanquish this season’s growing pains by pulling out a victory at Colorado Saturday night. We won’t recover from 0-3 in the SEC this weekend, nor this season, but we need –…

Grantham’s Defense Not The Problem

When Grantham took over as defensive coordinator after last season, Georgia was coming off an 8-5 campaign full of defensive pains. Georgia had had two remarkably poor defensive seasons in a row; resultant: Richt gave Martinez his walking papers. Martinez’s…

Can Ealey Shake Off S.I. Jinx

A regional cover of Sports Illustrated’s SEC preview featured young Washaun Ealey – quite a preseason honor for a true sophomore on the same team with NFL-bound wideout AJ Green. Ealey was not even an official starter yet; that distinction…

Number One in NFL Draft Picks

Though clearly of second-tier importance down South, I did happen to notice that the NFL season starts today. I scoff whenever an over-loyal idiot of say LSU or Bama or Florida obfuscates the obvious by speaking of their best few…

Can 3-4 Baffle Spurrier?

Spurrier is a cock. And he hasn’t had so much success there – they never do in Carolina. Coach Spurrier has had five full seasons in Columbia. But let’s look at the lame cocks’ records since all the way back…

Murray’s Road Test

As I write this on the precipice of the Hairy Dawgs beginning SEC play, the University of Georgia still awaits news on AJ Green’s eligibility. With or without the best wide receiver in college football, Georgia’s young quarterback now faces…

Winning Percentage

Coach Mark Richt has the 3rd best winning percentage of any active college football head coach and the longest tenure of any in the SEC, best conference in the world. Coach has two SEC rings and has finished #3 and…

Big Time

Let’s get this, Dawgs. We have been pushed around far too long by Florida, and Tennessee has taken back control of that series in a major way. We have been humbled in big games at home. And now we trot…

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…

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…

We Run the Ball

Remember when Garrison Hearst turned that corner as a junior, like a stallion?Remember when Robert Edwards went off against South Carolina for a game and Tennessee for a half, when he debuted? Remember Hampton, Remember Herschel. Tate Center right near…
