Did you know that a toaster will not survive a trip off a third-story balcony? I'm the guy who found that out about halfway through the third quarter of the '06 Georgia-Colorado game. I'm 35 going on 7, I'm a cog in the communications/fund-raising machine of a major state university that is not my alma mater, and I live and die (and occasionally go absolutely bug-nuts insane) with the Georgia Bulldogs. Surprisingly enough, I generally have a good sense of humor about it, too, but our mascot Uga and the 1999 UGA-GT game are absolutely off limits. I will fight you, and I fight dirty.

Manic-Depressive Preview: Dawgs VS. Gamecocks

+

It's the biggest game of the year so far for the Dawgs, and the Manic-Depressive Preview is here to break it down for you (assuming they don't suffer any breakdowns of their own).

SEC Power Poll, Week 5

+

If ESPN retroactively applied one of its lame themes to this past weekend in the SEC, it'd be "Everyone Pretty Much Looks Lousy Saturday."

Dawgs, Vols and the alternate-universe theory

1

In some divergent reality, there are excuses to be made for the Bulldog defense's performance against Tennessee. Until we find it, though, we have to face up to the fact that the Dawgs' defense...

WEEK 5 CFB PREVIEW: DEMOCRACY IN ACTION

750

This week's college football slate is like voting: Almost all the options stink, but dammit, you gotta pick one — IT'S YOUR DUTY AS AN AMERICAN.

The Manic Depressive preview Tennessee Vs. Georgia

+

The Bulldogs are flying high at the moment — which, according to one of our previewers, is exactly the point at which everything traditionally goes wrong. Will Tennessee be the team to make that...

SEC Power Poll, Week 4: The East Rises Again

+

The SEC West may have just shrunk to a one-team race, as the LSU Tigers nearly laid an enormous egg with a much-closer-than-expected win over Auburn. Yeah, they outlasted the War Iggles on the...

SEC Power Poll, Week 4: The East Rises Again

The SEC West may have just shrunk to a one-team race, as the LSU Tigers nearly laid an enormous egg with a much-closer-than-expected win over Auburn. Yeah, they outlasted the War Iggles on the...

Georgia 48, Vanderbilt 3: Playing Well Is The Best Revenge

+

After a chaotic, high-tension game between the Dawgs and 'Dores in 2011, cooler heads prevailed for the Dawgs both on the field and on the sideline. It's no coincidence that the result was one of...

WEEK 4 PREVIEW: TURN AND FACE THE STRANGE

27

If ESPN was still trying to give every last weekend of college football a contrived "theme," this one would be "Descent Into Madness Saturday." Here are our picks for embracing the chaos.

Georgia Vs. Vanderbilt: The Manic-Depressive Preview Has A Few Scores To Settle

+

Mark Richt may claim he doesn't hold a grudge, but at least one half of the Manic-Depressive Preview team refuses to say the same.

SEC Power Poll Ballot, Week 3: Another Team Falls Out Of The Sun Belt Race

+

Arkansas was effectively eliminated last week, and this week it was Kentucky's turn. Auburn, fortunately, hung tough in overtime to stay alive in the race for the conference title. That's the Sun...

Georgia 56, Florida Atlantic 20: Clap Your Hands Say Meh

+

For a five-TD victory, Georgia's win over FAU doesn't seem to have gotten Bulldog Nation all that excited. Don't worry, Georgia fans, the Dawgs did just fine.

WEEK 3 PREVIEW: WE GOT MORE RISING ACTION THAN FLEISCHMANN'S YEAST UP IN HERE

As boring cupcake games start to give way to actual meaningful football, here's a guide to the most critical of this weekend's matchups.

Georgia Vs. Florida Atlantic: The Manic-Depressive Preview Takes It Easy One Last Time

+

This weekend's game against Florida Atlantic may be nothing more than a glorified scrimmage, but the Manic-Depressive Previewers are taking it seriously. Well, one of them is, at least.

SEC Power Poll, Week 2: Fat Lady Sings For Arkansas, Warms Up For Auburn

+

Alabama and LSU remain at the top, most likely for the duration. Guess we'll just have to watch the folks below them commit some pretty spectacular pratfalls.

Georgia 41, Missouri 20: Watch Out, That Old Guy's Got A Gun

+

Welcome to the SEC, Missouri. Georgia's offense may have played "old man football" Saturday night, but the Bulldog defense showed that old man was packing heat.

WEEK 2 PREVIEW: MUSCHAMPASAURUS VS. SUPER SHARK

85

Odd pairings abound in Week 2, both intra-conference matchups and games between former strangers who suddenly find themselves members of the same league. IT'S A RECIPE FOR WACKINESS!

Georgia Vs. Missouri: The Manic-Depressive Preview Heads Into Uncharted Territory

+

The Manic-Depressive Preview gives you its alternately sunny and fearful predictions of how the Bulldogs will fare in their very first trip to Columbia, Mo., to face newly minted SEC East rivals...

SEC Power Poll, Week 1: It's Nick Saban's World, We're Just Renting

Week 1 is in the books, and while we still don't know much about most of the teams in the SEC, we know enough about Alabama to be afraid. Very afraid.

Georgia 45, Buffalo 23: The Season Starts Off Sleepy, And So Do The Dawgs

Georgia hit the snooze button against Buffalo and won anyway. But with Mizzou on deck, the coaches have to bring naptime to an end.

Georgia Vs. Buffalo: High In The Saddle, The Manic-Depressive Preview Rides Again

+

One of them is convinced Georgia will win every game by 50. The other's just covering his eyes and waiting for it to be over. Together, they are the Manic-Depressive Preview, and they're giving you...

WEEK 1 PREVIEW: THE BUFFET IS OPEN

229

Ryan's buffet photo courtesy tasteofknoxville.com. Couldn't make it up if I tried, folks. College football is nearly upon us, and after perusing the extensive list of games that will be available...

Georgia Vs. Buffalo: Bulldogs Open Season Saturday In Athens

+

The pundits say Georgia's been blessed with another clear path to the SEC East title, but that doesn't mean there won't be pitfalls along the way.

The 2012 Georgia Bulldogs And The Expectations Game

+

Both the coaches and the sportswriters think Georgia's a top-10-caliber team this season. Here's what the Dawgs will have to do to prove them right.

Mathieu Dismissed From LSU Football Team; Les Miles Somehow Maintains Control

+

LSU's best defensive player is gone, but coach Les Miles is still in complete control of the team, at least as far as the nation's pundits are concerned.
