Welcome to Cocktail Party Week

Dawgs are 4-4 after three straight wins in conference. And the mighty Gators roll around on the schedule, a year after Tebow. They’ve been pushed around and shut down on offense and lost three straight, after losing two games total…

Dawgs in Bluegrass Country

It really sucked. Sitting in Athens in the cold at night coming off a cold and watching Georgia give a game to Kentucky last season. In our last five games of that inauspicious campaign, the Dawgs went 4-1 – yet…

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…

Reality Bites

When a promising season starts with by far your best player being suspended. When you go to 0-2 in the SEC and have no real home field advantage. When poor protection, obvious play calling and quarterback inexperience leads to six…

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…

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…

Scoutin’ the Cajuns

Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns – formerly Louisiana-Lafayette and before that Southwest Louisiana – play in the Sunbelt Conference in front of 31,000. They travel to ATHENS, GA Saturday to take on your Big Hairy Dawgs in an opener tuneup for GEORGIA…

Did Murray Forget How to Pass?

In his junior year of high school, Murray was regarded as the number one high school quarterback in the nation. And he didn’t grind out stats against inferior competition week in and week out at some small and/or private high…

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…

Offense Sharp in Scrimmage Two

Zach Mettenberger and Aaron Murray continued to play well in live game situations, as scrimmage two was played in Athens, GA the saturday before Easter. They also both had strong showings in the first scrimmage played a week earlier. Logan…

Scrimmage in the Books

A year ago, a big question mark in Athens was the running backs. Richard Samuel was hurt and Caleb King was in the spotlight. By fall practice, Samuel was shining in scrimmages and King was struggling, unprepared to lead. We…

DAWGS ‘Tween The Hedges Seeking 11+ Wins

DEAR DAWGS: It is time to stand up as a program and claim our destiny. Nothing less than ten wins per year from now on – and eleven wins is really the new ten when you consider the extended length…

Let’s Get Back to Football

Spring means flowers and showers and March Madness for some …. For us, spring means FOOTBALL. G-Day Game is April 10th at 2pm, and until then, it’s time to get back to football practice for the returning UGA players. We…

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…
