ATHENS – Alright it was a laugher, it should have been a laugher, it was a laugher.
But this is nothing to joke about.
The 2017 Georgia Bulldogs have a lot of running backs. A lot of good running backs. Yes this school likes to pride itself as Tailback U. You certainly got to watch a lot of good tailbacks tonight.
We didn’t exactly learn a whole lot on this Saturday. Samford didn’t pull off a Nicholls State type-scare and UGA wins 42-14. Wahoo.
But we did learn, or confirm, this should and will be a running football team. No matter who is playing [More]

On the list of great coaching gimmicks of all-time, the Junkyard Dawgs defense, has to be right on top of the list.
Every Bulldog fan, maybe over the age of 25, knows the story. Georgia defensive coordinator Erk Russell came up with the moniker in the mid-1970s to define his undersized and some would say under skilled groups.
“By our own definition, a Junkyard Dog is a dog completely dedicated to his task, that of defending his goal line. Further, he is very often a reject (from the offense) [More]

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The University of Georgia beat the University of Notre Dame in its first trip to South Bend.
For months and years, Bulldog Nation has had this game circled. UGA fans from all over doing everything they could to get here to see it in person. Some spending way too much money to do it.
But no one will say they didn’t get their money’s worth tonight.
Georgia beat Notre Dame 20-19. With maybe 30-thousand people in red and black living it up.
It was truly unreal.
And the Dawgs didn’t even play well.
What a night. What a weekend.
“What a great college [More]

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, but this is the farthest north I’ve ever been in a my life. I work too much. I don’t travel a lot. But we are working and traveling, so double win.
I’ve also been told I don’t take enough pictures. So this is a personality growth business trip and I thought I’d share with you loyal readers of this blog.
Before we get to the highlights of this adventure by car from Atlanta to Indiana, if you ever get a chance to come to Notre Dame, you should do it. If you [More]

ATHENS – Jake Fromm got way too much hype for a freshman backup. And you can blame that on Kirby Smart.
I guess he knew what he was talking about.
Honestly I sort of rolled my eyes at members of Bulldog Nation who were already wound up about Jake Fromm after watching him tear up a bunch of walk-ons in the G-Day game.
UGA fans were already jumping off the Jacob Eason band wagon, chasing after a shiny new freshman.
To those people, you have a much better argument today.
“I’ve been hearing about Jake Fromm for a long time,” said hypemaster head coach [More]

How many years has it been since Bulldog Nation did not expect to win the SEC? Since Tim Tebow graduated to become an all-star baseball player (oops) or since Urban Meyer left to spend more time with his family (also known as, Tebow-left-and-I-can’t-control-my-players disease).
We make a big deal in the news business about labelling this season as one where “expectations are high for the Dawgs” or “UGA is favored to win the SEC East.” Well in the current state of the division, that is not exactly news. It’s like writing a headline saying water is wet.
Flash forward to 2017. This [More]

ATHENS — Oh how quickly college football fans fall in love.
They tweet, they write, they post, they read and talk about their man. A bright shiny quarterback with long,flowing locks and an arm that’s been replaced with a bazooka.
Aww. Puppy love.
“I love him forever and always,” they write in the diaries before dreaming of their man hoisting a trophy high above his head.
Nothing can go wrong.
Until that trophy is the Liberty Bowl Trophy. And thy love is not so sweet and thy eye thou wanders. I think Shakespeare wrote about it or something.
Then they find another. With a similar name [More]
