Game Day Open Comment Thread and Honorary Captain

I don't have to tell you that this one is huge.

With a shot at the Eastern Division title on the line, will Georgia fall short or win big?

Your thoughts and observations, both on the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party and on the rest of the weekend's college football action, go in the comments below. The most trenchant observations have a distinct shot at being quoted in my postgame breakdown, if that's any incentive.

Now, though, it is time to name this week's Dawg Sports honorary game captain. Really, there could be only one choice under the circumstances . . . Keith Pernell Henderson, a three-year letterman in the late '80s who made his biggest mark as a true freshman in 1985.

The Red and Black arrived in Jacksonville ranked 17th in the A.P. poll. The Gators, for the first time in school history, were ranked No. 1 in the nation and were prohibitive favorites to defeat a Georgia squad whom the Orange and Blue had beaten by a 27-point margin the year before.

The first-year fullback had something to say about that, though. Henderson got things going with a 76-yard touchdown run in the first quarter and followed that up with a 32-yard T.D. scamper in the second period. He finished with 145 rushing yards in the course of Georgia's 24-3 romp on Duval Street.

Sure, the Classic City Canines are under-'Dawgs in this afternoon's outing. They've been there before, though, and come through with flying colors. If Knowshon Moreno can have the sort of day in Jacksonville that Keith Henderson had 22 years ago, history can repeat itself, producing much elation in Bulldog Nation.

Go 'Dawgs!
