Ri-kus: Second Chance Edition

Several of you have submitted lovely expressions of haiku hatred; after my last ri-ku posting on Friday, I will gather them all together and we can vote on the best one the old-fashioned way in...

Ri-kus: Gator Bowl Buddies

I had planned on doing only ten of these, but then I looked at who was left on the bracket and realized that I'd left out Clemson from my rikus. Then I looked at the bracket and decided that I...

Ri-kus: Passing the Time Until Kickoff

I am as ready for kickoff this Saturday as anyone else here, so I am filling that time as any good Poet Laureate would: by writing poetry. Okay, so "poetry" is a rather generous term, and the...

Russ: The Mascot Bulldog Nation Needs

Chuckdawg wrote a piece about making Russ a full-time mascot due to his stellar services to Bulldog Nation, so I figured that I may as well throw in my support as well. William Shakespeare is known...

"Till Another Comes Forward:" 10 Different Positions on Penn State

Since vineyard’s excellent post has gotten over 300 comments, I have tried to summarize the various points made there here. Some of these positions are composites, and many of y’all may find...

The Rime of an Independent Natural: A Bubba Watson Tale

I promise I had this completely written before the release of T. Kyle's pessimistic, comprehensive smorgasbord, so I guess it falls to me to be a voice of optimism and good 4th of July cheer. No, I...

Ode to the Love of A Freaking First Down with Three Minutes to Go

Our football season is finally over, and all that is left to sort out is this MNC rematch thing on Monday. Thank y'all for being a good audience for my silly poems; I'll write a few things here and...

The Charge of the Dawg Brigade

Playing a team named the Spartans has me in a bit of a martial frame of mind, so I figured I'd use Tennyson's "Charge of the Light Brigade." Not that the poem has anything to do with Sparta, but...

How the Petrino Stole Christmas

I was lethargically reworking classic Christmas carols for this week's post when Dawg2011 seeded my silly brilliant mind with a devilish idea. Given the assumption that much of this SEC...

The Aggies Went down to Georgia

One of the biggest nonstories of the week was the assertion by pundits, Aggie fans, and other busy-bodies well-informed people in an excellent position to make valid educated guesses that Mark...

Baby, if I'd have known you would respond so well to the ultimatum I gave you at the beginning of the season, I would've given you one last year, too. True, your Funky Chicken left a lot to be...

Samuel Taylor Cola-ridge Knows its a Georgia Thang

A Win by Any Other Name

Paint the Town Red and Black: A Sonnet for Munson

I'll post something more cheerful and light-hearted later this week, but I wanted to post this quicker. I tried to find a sonnet from this week's writer, but for whatever reason, nothing struck me...

Cummings and Goings

I'm not sure how much sense these poems make, but that's what happens when I tackle e.e. cummings. His poetry is often disorganized, nonsensical, and hard to understand, so I suppose it's an...

The Celebration of Dishonesty is Downed: Yeats Cranks Dat on the Dawg Sports Sidelines

"Ain't I a Walk-on?" A Bit of Truth from Our Feature Back this Week

The big news this week (besides helping Florida go 0-for-October, of course) was our lack of running backs going into this weekend's game. Given how many song poems I did last week (and early this...

Dawgs Macabre: Well-coached, Well-bred Gallant Gamy Gator Haters

Dawgs Macabre: Red Robbin' Refs Come out to Penalize
