Monday Morning Dawg Bites

It has been a whirlwind weekend and we are back to the old grind on another Monday morning with more things to do than time in which to do them, so I won't keep you long, but a quick run-down is in order, lest something important slip by you, so here we go:

  • I am continuing to preview each game on the Bulldogs' fall slate in succession, despite the threat of information overload. The latest opponent to go under the microscope is Vanderbilt.
  • What does the Confederate battle flag have to do with intercollegiate athletics? You've got me . . . but, since the N.C.A.A. is making an issue of it, I took the time to interview a college history professor who can put this question into its proper perspective.

As soon as the Palmetto State has been put in its place, the N.C.A.A. plans to go after the fictitious college that flew the Confederate flag outside the stadium on that episode of "Sports Night."

How accurate is Paul Westerdawg? I'm thinking of an industry term. . . .

  • According to Peter, I slapped a bell clap on Stewart Mandel and his ilk. I am neither young enough nor hip enough to know what "slap a bell clap" means, but I like the way it sounds and I intend to work it into casual conversation at every opportunity.
  • Finally, finally, finally, Nathan has taken a look at the S.E.C. mascots. He rips on Hairy Dawg, which seems a bit unfair in light of the atrocious embarrassment that is Buzz, but he gives Uga high marks.

When your team fields this loser, do you really want to be talking trash about other folks' mascots? (Photograph from TravelBlog.)

Not a close call.

That ought to get you up to date and ready to face the week. Let's be careful out there.

Go 'Dawgs!
