RIP, Uga VI... One Heck of a Bulldog
Sad... Uga VI, the winningest Georgia Bulldog mascot, passed today. http://tinyurl.com/69jesg My wife just brought home the Sporting news College Football '08 issue that shows UGA as #1 for the upcoming year. Here's the lineup. Georgia Ohio State USC Oklahoma LSU Missouri Clemson WestVirginia Florida...

SEC is the Toughest Conference in 2007
LSU is undisputed as the #1 team (despite fuzzy BCS math allowing LSU to leapfrog Georgia when Ohio State didn't have to play anyone...). Great news is that Georgia finished the season at #2, even receiving 3 first place nods. This makes the SEC the first league since the Big 8 in 1971 to have the top...

Georgia Routs Undefeated Hawaii
For the past week, each sports writer covering the Georgia and Hawaii matchup could not resist two little words in their interviews and articles. Boise State. In January 2007, underdog Boise State upset hugely favored Oklahoma. Many writers, looking for an angle to sensationalize this ho-hum matchup...

UGA to play Hawaii? Was USC that afraid of getting beaten?
I have to give props to Hawaii, the only team to go undefeated. But seriously, look at who they played: Northern Colorado. Louisiana Tech. UNLV. Charleston Southern. Great schedule, guys... I think you missed the St. Mary's Boys' College in that schedule to round out a tough year. And now UGA gets...

Go Dawgs! And go home, Herbstreit!
I can't believe it happened. Georgia is number 4, and the number 1 and number 2 teams got beat. Let's see... #1 and #2 lose, that means #3 and #4 move up, becoming the new #1 and #2, right? Hmm... wait, this is the BCS, which is now subject to the whims of ESPN's anchors. Last night, West Virginia...

OMG!!! UGA Wins Against Florida!!!!
HOLY CRAP!!!! Urban Meyer throws his headphones (a la Spurrier throwing his visor), and UGA wins against Florida, 42-30!!! Knowshon Moreno was undoubtedly the player of the game, and ESPN had BETTER show UGA having the winning Game Changing Play. I am floored. I bet against UGA today. I bet against...

A Great Weekend for College Football
Last weekend was WTF Saturday, with 5 of the top 10 teams losing games (4 of which were to UNRANKED teams). I don't see how anyone could have done well in a college football pool or in a fantasy league from last week. My mom would have done great in a college football pool, we used to joke that she picks...

UGA Beats Alabama in Tuscaloosa... Go Dawgs!
I was really dismayed about UGA's loss to South Carolina, knocking us down to 22 in the rankings. Last week, they looked good, but it wasn't really a question going in who should have won. But today... UGA came through in overtime and beat Alabama in Tuscaloosa 26-23. Admittedly, Alabama looked great...

Are you ready for some football?!?!
It's that glorious time of year again... time for College Football. If you are thinking, "so what?" then you probably didn't grow up in the South. For example, this piece understands what college football is like in the South: http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/eticket/story?page=southernfootball Since...

JoeT Just Ain’t The Guy
What a lost season. UGA looked decent, but not great, against South Carolina. Since that game, Georgia has looked pretty lackluster. Joe Tereshinski was hurt during the South Carolina game, which coincided with the alumni rumble to have the new hot-shot Stafford throw the ball. Stafford threw against...

Atlanta Falcons Pick D.J. Shockley in 2006 Draft
I am so happy for DJ Schockley. After playing 3 years as backup to David Green, it was really uncertain if any schools would pick up DJ Shockley in the 2006 draft. And considering that Marcus Vick has been working out in Atlanta with older brother Michael Vick and co., there was some fear that Atlanta...

The Eyes of Texas Are Upon You...
Hook 'em Horns! I sure hope Mark Richt was watching this performance and lets the new recruiting class for 2006 actually play without kicking the damned ball.

Clean Old Fashioned Hate 2005
Yes, Wally, it is that time of year again (forward to minute 35:43). The Friday after Thanksgiving is the time when the Evans clan celebrates a fun family tradition. We visit a local tree farm, drink some hot cocoa, take a hay ride, and we cut down our Christmas tree. I usually spend some time later...

UGA Shows Up for Saturday
Today, I am proud and admittedly wrong. Like many of the faithful in the Bulldog Nation, I thought Shockley simply didn't have it in him to win today. Was I ever pleasantly surprised (as was Boise!) Gotta admit, I was both happy and scared watching Shockley running around like Michael Vick, thinking...

It starts today...
Yep, Georgia Football starts today. 5:30 pm EST. After reading the scouting reports, I will be watching with my hand over my face, peeking between my fingers. Georgia is favored by 7, but Brian VanGorder, Georgia's magician Defensive Coordinator, left the Bulldogs last year to go to the NFL. With the...

UGA vs LSU for SEC Championship
Saturday, the Georgia Bulldogs will rematch against the LSU Tigers, but this time for the SEC Championship. UGA was given a gift by Florida State this past weekend when FSU defeated Florida. All that, and they beat Georgia Tech the same day (which is really all that matters to most Dawg fans!) And...

Wearing Black for Dooley on Saturday
Athens -- In his final football season as Georgia's athletics director, Vince Dooley has been honored by some of the Bulldogs' fiercest rivals -- Florida, LSU, Auburn and Tennessee. But Dooley won't be recognized Saturday in the stadium he made famous -- at least not in any official way. Dooley, who...
