I have never lived nor was i born in the state of Georgia, yet i am a diehard intense fan of the Classic City Canines. But growing up in Alabama my grandfather who graduated from UGA in the 60's got us into the bulldawgs when i was 12 or 13 around the end of the Quincy Carter/ Jim Donnan era. It was when Richt came along in his first year that we really got into the Dawgs and couldn't miss a game on TV or follow online. So that explains the question i always get wondering how i grew up in Alabama as a huge UGA fan.

Coach Mark Richt shows the College Football World that you can do the latter. Great read, whether you share his faith or not, there is no reason to deride him (like many in the SEC do) for keeping his job in perspective, despite the pressure and criticism in a rabid SEC football world.

GEORGIA FOOTBALL BLUE RIBBON FREE PREVIEW

ESPN does their own preview mag style preseason reveiws every year and usually you have to have an insider account to view them and they pick 2 teams to allow free access. This year they chose the Ark. Razorbacks from the west and your UGA Bulldogs from the east! Read and enjoy learning about everything you already knew about the bulldogs this coming year.

Ealey is out of the Dawghouse, and not in a good way.

Washaun Ealey is no longer a bulldog. After a somewhat up and down career, Ealey will transfer out of UGA and has the freedom to transfer where-ever he chooses. This is disappointing in that you never like to see a player who is unable to get his act together enough to rejoin the team, it did seem like he was doing better at one point, but there were recent rumblings that he was back in danger of not returning to the team, and now it seems has played his last for the red and black. Either way i think this will benefit both parties in the end, and i hope he finds a home and success somewhere outside the SEC.

As some of you may have heard, the Valdosta Wildcats experienced a tragedy in the past few weeks. A senior football player, James Eunice, went missing, and drowned a couple weeks ago while duck hunting with a friend. After a 2 week search, his body was finally found and the funeral was held today. James was already accepted to UGA and was looking to walk-on to the football team after talking with Coach Richt during a Rome/Mitchell recruiting trip down here. He was never the most athletic player but had the most heart of any player on the field. He was a fine Christian young man, made straight A’s, and was very popular in school. Well at the funeral today the preacher called Jay Rome and Malcolm Mitchell up to the stage with a box in their hands. In the box was a letter that CMR wrote to the family. The end of the note said, "Oh yeah, James made the team." The two pulled out an official player jersey with his #23 and name on the back. (HT: Grit tree)

Aaron Murray shows that he can sling it with the best of them in the SEC. Its a great video that makes it very encouraging to think about next season. But what isn't encouraging is that Green and Durham (who make about more than half of the big plays in the video) aren't going to be here next year. You do see potential out of T. King, and the TE's though. Go Dawgs!

The performance from Michael Johnson and Geno Atkins takes the cake. Atkins looked quick, shedding blocks -- even double teams -- finishing with a team leading six tackles and a quarterback sack.

Greg McGarity Officially Applies for AD

2
"I'm just going through the process," That's the PR quote given by Greg when he was asked to confirm his application for the UGA AD job. Looks like one of top targets, as far as some of us at Dawgsports are concerned, has put himself out there and wants to come on board. I guess all that's left is for the AD search committee to do its due diligence, and make sure he is the right man for the job.

Nick Marshall gives UGA his verbal commitment to CMR and CMF

24
Athlete Nick Marshall of Wilcox County (Rochelle, Ga.) has announced plans to play both football and basketball for Georgia in the Class of 2011. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound prospect was also offered by Alabama, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Arkansas, Clemson, Tennessee and Vanderbilt. He was once a silent commitment to the Yellow Jackets. A quarterback in high school, Marshall is rated three-stars and No. 31 nationally by ESPNU, but will play defensive back for the Bulldogs. He is considered No. 34 at shooting guard in basketball. The Bulldogs now have 11 commitments. Wow. Honestly i didn't really expect him to commit to the dawgs after LeMay committed but i guess that may not be why he's comming to the classic city canines. Marshall is also an explosive athlete on the Basketball court and WILL play for the hard-court dawgs as well.

UGA Lexicon

One of the best off-season bloggers Senator Blutarsky puts together the greatest Lexicon in history. It will soon be required reading in all English-Speech-Vocabulary classes in Georgia. It of course includes our own created classics such as "Evil Richt", Historical acronyms such as GATA, and more recent ones such as GPOOE. And ones that are so funny you just have to look them up yourself.

UGA Ends Directional Kick-offs: Clinches SEC East Title

I know such a headline goes against the MO of this blog, its writers, and those who faithfully follow it, But when Dave Hale tweeted this... "Huge news- Blair Walsh confirms an end to directional kickoffs." i couldn't contain the excitement. I hope i have forgiveness for such destructive optimism, but it could not be contained. I'm sure TankerToad and the rest of the gang can bring us down to earth.

Is SEC football the 21st Century "New York" Media?

+

I don't know whether to be proud that once again, someone recognizes the college football juggernaut that is the SEC, or to be insulted that he compared us to the Yankke media. All that aside there are some interesting tidbits on the national impact of having SEC games viewed across the country every Saturday and how most NFL teams don't even get that. Most of the New York Media comparison comes from General Peachfuzz's latest tabloid exploits.
