Jay Black on the Dawgs 

Georgia’s seniors get the send off they deserve

ATHENS – It’s a picture that, if anyone actually sells it, will make a killing.

The four seniors who stayed, with the postgame hoopla of a 42-13 blowout swirling around them, pulled over to have someone capture the moment.

No one would have blamed Nick Chubb and Sony Michel for taking the NFL’s money. Running backs live short lives. College running back is a pretty tough way to earn a scholarship.

Lorenzo Carter and Davin Bellamy had to consider if another uncertain season was the best move. Because guys who hit NFL quarterbacks have nice houses too.

This was one of the moments they [More]

No. 1 Dawgs can’t handle the stage or the Tigers

AUBURN, Ala – Humility is no longer a week away.

If you’ve heard any of UGA coach Kirby Smart’s press conferences, you’ve no doubt heard that line and that lesson for his players.

It’s a good one. And for the nation’s number one team, the humbling has arrived.

“The lesson was learned that they got a good football team,” Smart told the UGA radio network after Saturday’s stomping in Auburn. “They whipped us up front, they whipped us on the back end, they whipped on us the edges.”

Or more simply.

“It was a total butt whippin’,” said Smart.

Yup. That’s the only appropriate verb for: [More]

No celebrating allowed, but Georgia is SEC East Champs

  • 9:29 pm Saturday, November 4th, 2017 by Jay Black

ATHENS – This is probably just how Kirby Smart wanted it.

Georgia didn’t officially know it had punched its first ticket to the SEC Championship game since 2012 until well after everyone had cleared out of Sanford Stadium.

There was no one here to celebrate. But the sense around this empty stadium tonight is there’s nothing this football team or its coach wants to celebrate.

“I guarantee you half the guys don’t even know that,” said safety JR Reed when told his team was SEC East champs.

On Georgia’s website, there’s no grand proclamation of a division title. Check the UGA football Twitter feed [More]

6:29 — South Carolina’s fourth down attempt fails with 4:52 [More]

Dawgs turn the Gators into just another team

  • 9:29 pm Saturday, October 28th, 2017 by Jay Black

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]
