Eleven

High noon Between the Hedges, moments after a touching Senior Day ceremony ended. Without it being said by many, it was notable too for the number of NFL draft-ready Georgia juniors playing their final game in Athens. This team will…

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…

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,…

Glory in Jacksonville

Jordan Reed, easily #2 Florida’s best football player, surged past the first down marker and toward the goal line very late at the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. Between him and a touchdown stood rugged senior Shawn Williams. Reed went…

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…

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…

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…

How Deep the River

To my lady’s chagrin, Justin and I were in bowl mode at the Righteous Room in the Poncey-Highlands section of the ATL hours before kickoff. My brother and nephew and his grandfather had made the long drive north and west…

Swamp People: 10 Scary Gators

These ten Gators have more in common with the beasts on the TV show Swamp People than being killed by Cajuns. They pose a real threat to Georgia losing to our biggest rival for the 19th time in 22 annual…

Richt’s Biggest Problem

Playing in his home state for the first time in college, Aaron Murray came out remarkably flat early in last year’s rendition of the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. He finally turned it on nearing halftime, and Georgia put up…

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…

Richt in The A

Not as important what was said here tonight in the Galleria of Greater Metro Atlanta where head football coach Mark Richt spoke, as it is how GEORGIA plays here this year. How and when. The SEC East title is a…

Diamond Dawgs Face NCAA Elimination Game

Playing far from home in the regionals of the NCAA baseball tournament, UGA dropped a close opening game to Creighton 2-1 Friday in Corvallis, Oregon. All of the scoring by both squads came in the 7th inning of the defensive…

Why Washington Was Worst Draw for UGA

The University of Georgia was in last place in the SEC last season in men’s basketball and made a remarkable turnaround in year two of the coach Mark Fox era. At 21-11, UGA has a decent record, and the Dawgs…

UGA Baseball Back on Track

Playing at Dodgers Stadium in scenic Chavez Ravine, Georgia baseball completed a perfect week with a defeat of St. Mary’s. On the quick West Coast trip, Georgia also defeated USC and #5 UCLA. Earlier in the week, UGA opened SEC…

Regular Season in Top 7 of All-time

GEORGIA lost at SEC West champion BAMA today, to a team that needed the win more and completed an undefeated home season. UGA finished the successful regular season with 20 wins. Only 7 teams in the 79-year history of Georgia…
