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…

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,…

The Real Chris Boggs is a DAWG!

I recently came into awareness of an impostor. Of all things, this other Chris Boggs is a Tech writer, for the AJC. No, he doesn’t write about technology – he writes about the wimpy North Avenue Trade School Yellow Jack-its….

What if?

Picture yourself not at work today in a cubicle. Think of a drained river valley instead, a stadium, let’s say. STADIUM LIGHTS, CROWD NOISE, STADIUM LIGHTS, CROWD NOISE. Instead of a rainy wednesday…It’s Saturday Night, in Athens, and the autumnal…

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…

Parallel DawgsNations

Interesting the parallels between the football and baseball programs at GEORGIA. Two seasons ago, both finished as National Runners Up. UGA football smoked Hawaii in the Sugar Bowl, after being outvoted in favor of LSU. UGA baseball was up a…
