Jay Black on the Dawgs 

Dawgs turn the Gators into just another team

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – For so many years and so many times, when Georgia faces Florida it spends two weeks preparing for a grand unveiling.

Some new game plan, wrinkle, or new gimmick that — for the previous two months — no one thought was a good idea or hadn’t had time to dream up.

Black helmets, black pants, third-string quarterbacks, all-inclusive celebrations, throwing when you run and run when you throw. The list goes on and on.

Sometimes these ploys were necessary because the best team was not Georgia. Sometimes two weeks to think, is one week too long.

Dawgs offense brushes off upset scare

  • 1:33 am Sunday, October 15th, 2017 by Jay Black

ATHENS – For about two and a half quarters, Georgia look to be the next in line during this college football guillotine weekend.

Top 10 teams seeing their heads and seasons cut off by opponents only armed with little more than a rock and something to fling it with.

Missouri might be 1-4 but they can certainly fling the football if you let them. And Georgia’s defense, for the first time all season, was letting somebody run past them.

It was 21-21 early in the second quarter. Some back up receiver with nine catches on the season was running about as wide open [More]

Smart’s competition enhances the Dawgs present and future

If you want a fun experiment, go to your Google machine and type “Millenials are” but don’t finish it and just look at what the auto fill options are.

You see phrases like millennials are lazy, millennials are stupid, millennials are killing everything, millennials are killing the beer industry, millennials are killing lunch (lunch?, but I like lunch), millennials are killing everything.

You get the point. The previous generations are not impressed with the newest one.

It’s no surprise that older people think this younger crowd expects everything to be handed to them and they don’t have [More]

Enjoying the final season of UGA’s ‘Chubb and Michel Show’

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Roses are red, violets are blue. Oh how I’ve enjoyed watching Nick and Sony run to the moon.

That’s it. That’s all the poetry I’ve got. But I do have a serious point. Georgia claims its Running Back U and the pipeline seems stocked with strong understudies, but I’m really going to miss these running backs when they are gone.

It’s been a lot of fun to bear witness to the Chubb and Michel Show and today might have been the best episode yet.

What a difference a year makes for UGA

  • 9:43 pm Thursday, October 5th, 2017 by Jay Black

I couldn’t believe it when I saw it. And I was there. I still can’t quite believe it now.

The 2016 Georgia Bulldogs lost to Vanderbilt. At home. In a real football game.

“I’m sick to my stomach,” said Kirby Smart after that 17-16 defeat. “I’m embarrassed by the performance.”

It’s hard to fathom that Georgia lost to Vanderbilt on that gray, cloudy day in Athens. It might be just as hard to imagine that only one year later, that team has turned into this team. 5-0 and ranked No. 5 in America.

King Kirby and his nation have nothing to be embarrassed about [More]
