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…

Ah, the Prolonged Misery of J-ville

In J-ville, Georgia played with the most heart I’ve seen from us in years in the fourth quarter and came up just short, as Aaron Murray’s fourth turnover of the day (third interception) was picked in overtime and the Gators…

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…
