Good morning, all.  It's bright and chilly here, and I'm still stuffed like yesterday's turkey.  Snack on a few tidbits of college sports and Bulldogs news along with the leftovers.

  • There's a big game this afternoon out in Baton Rouge, in case you hadn't heard, that will help decide who represents the SEC West against Georgia in Atlanta a week from tomorrow. 
  • And later tonight, Mark Fox takes the Hoop Hounds to Cincinnati to face #12 Xavier.  You may recall that the Musketeers ousted the Bulldogs from the NCAA tournament in 2008 after the Dawgs qualified only by making a miracle run through the SEC tournament.  They beat us last year, too.  You can learn more about tonight's opponent from our SB Nation colleagues at Banners on the Parkway.

On with the day, and

GO DAWGS!
