Looking for Greener Pastures

Vince the Prince seemed to always beat the Gators. Herschel Walker was only one of a myriad of good to great GEORGIA running backs that shredded the Swamp People under Coach Dooley’s watch. Georgia didn’t throw the ball much back…

Border Bashed

The #3, #4 and #5 teams were defeated Saturday, but only GEORGIA was really beaten badly. Good news: it is one loss – heck, we lost four football games last season. Bad news: plenty. Gamecock QB Shaw completed only six…

#5 GEORGIA at #6 S. Carolina

Full UGA game report Sunday:

Virtuoso Blocking Displayed Between the Hedges

In rivalry games this season UGA is now 1-0 as the Dawgs rolled up 560 yards, including an impressive 282 on the ground. The University of Tennessee Volunteers fell to 3-2 and 0-2 in SEC play for the season, with…

P44 Haynes ~ Hobnail Boot

Dear readers, let us fondly now recall Mark Richt’s first big rivalry win, and the second greatest call ever by Larry Munson (Run Lindsay #1, of course). Mr. Munson will always be the single greatest radioman of all time. No…

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)….

Ascending into Autumn

56-20 was the final score in a not so ready for primetime matchup Saturday night Between the Hedges. The boys from Boca came out ready to fire on offense, and they hung around with explosive Georgia until the game was…

THIS is SEC Football

Until only a minute-and-a-half was left in a tough first half, GEORGIA and Missouri were locked up in a 3-3 defensive battle in America’s heartland. Senior cornerback Branden Smith took a bad coverage angle, and Mizzou held a 10-3 advantage….

How Mizzou Fits in SEC

Texas A&M has an ongoing border rivalry with Arkansas that dates back to the Southwest Conference which has been played annually of late in the NFL Cowboys Stadium just outside Dallas. LSU and Texas A&M faced off in a bowl…

11-State League (TV Markets Galore)

The SEC is now an 11-state league, and take a peak at these television markets: 1. Texas: Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, El Paso, Austin 2. Georgia: Atlanta, Augusta 3. Florida: Miami, Tampa Bay, Orlando, Jacksonville 4. Missouri: St. Louis, Kansas…

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…

2012 UGA SEC Media Days Report

Mark Richt, the longest-tenured head football coach in the greatest American college football conference, headlined the SEC Media Days in Hoover, AL on July 19th. Over three gloriously long days in the Birmingham area, thirteen other head football coaches had…

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…

UGA Football: Top Sports Product in State

Before the start of the college football season, in writing I called for the Georgia Bulldogs to win exactly ten games and the SEC East and it be somewhat disappointing. I called for Georgia to beat Florida and Tennessee and…

Looking Ahead to 2012

Last week of the year, so instead of rehashing 2011 it’s time to look ahead. BAMA – mighty BAMA – got dropped from the schedule as the SEC East has seven teams and now only two out-of-division slots. The Dawg…

SEC East Champions Ready to Burn ATL?

If there is a such thing as an ugly win for a championship, this was certainly it. UGA had no running game in the first half, and the lowly Kentucky Wildcats had a slim lead and threatened to win a…

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…
