Happy 92nd Birthday to a Georgia Legend

Happy 92nd Birthday to Georgia Legend Charley Trippi

Letter to Florida's President

Lettertomachen2redacted

Fisheries Dawg is a DGD. He's got a degree from UGA, and he's as big of a Georgia guy as you'll ever meet. He also spent a year as a POW getting his masters at Florida. I woke this morning to see a copy in my inbox of his email to UF President Bernie Machen. I couldn't agree more with his sentiments.

Former UGA, NFL OL Scott Adams dies at 46

Sad news. He played under Dooley and later in the NFL. Went on to become a successful mortgage lender in Athens. Great guy, he will be missed.

Fresh start for the Diamond Dawgs

Looks like Stricklin is starting things off right, according to this article from the Athens Banner-Herald.

Peaches Fine Foods in Athens is Closing

My favorite Athens lunch spot will be closing their doors on Friday. You can keep your Weaver D's and Mama's Boy, I prefer Peaches for real soul food. (Mrs. Glenda also usually fed the team on the Friday before home games.) If you're in town, go see them Thursday or Friday. Hailtogeorgia blames Bobo!

Thirty-two years ago, Erskine Russell penned "The Letter" and sent it to our football team. It was a harbinger of things to come. Just a little motivation to remind you that we are 54 days from kickoff in Sanford!

Quintavious Harrow is off the Team

According to Anthony Dasher of ugasports.com. The link requires you be a rivals insider, which I am not. But on the heels of IC's dismissal, his best friend, high school teammate, and passenger from last week is also gone.

Sad news: Craig "Sky" Hertwig passes away at 60. DGD

Condolences to the family and friends of Craig "Sky" Hertwig. I remember many nights at Nowhere Bar and Sky's Place. There are a few that I don't remember, also.

For those of you on twitter, especially fans of the Diamond Dawgs, you should follow our friends in the brick house out on Kudzu Hill. Their hatred for Tech rivals mine.

UGA outselling Michigan St. for bowl tickets 2 to 1

Looks like our fans are excited about making the trip; the crowd from East Lansing, not so much. Hopefully this will carry over into the game. Also, tickets are still available from UGA, so there's no excuse not to make this trip (work be damned).

Loran has written a gem. This one is a must-read for any Dawg. Love and prayers to Larry. I thank God that I was able to grow up listening to him. We all should.

You'll have to be signed in to youtube and verify your age to watch this, but it's "Colonel Reb is Smiling-The Giggity Song." This updated the "Colonel Reb is Crying" song used on Memphis sports radio when Coach O was hired a few years ago.

Great news for the Diamond Dawgs--No more Nike bats!

Welcome relief has finally been granted UGA by Nike, who will allow the Dawgs, among 5 other schools, to swing bats by companies other than Nike. Fisheriesdawg and I sat together in Omaha in 2008 and watched Nike lumber cost us a national championship. It's 4 seasons too late, but better late than never!
