The hour is almost upon us. Today, at high noon, the 2012 Southeastern Conference Eastern Division champion Georgia Bulldogs welcome the 2012 Atlantic Coast Conference backdoor division representative in lieu of the postseason-ineligible co-champion Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets between the hedges for the renewal of Clean Old-Fashioned Hate.

Ere we proceed, however, I must identify the Dawg Sports honorary game captain. Those of you who read this week’s edition of Too Much Information probably figured out that I was going to reach back 70 years to pluck one of the impressive players from the Bulldogs’ 1942 backfield. Specifically, this week’s honoree is Charley Trippi.

In 1942, before a capacity crowd in expanded Sanford Stadium, No. 5 Georgia had taken a 14-0 first-half lead on No. 2 Georgia Tech when Trippi dropped back to pass on first down, thought better of it, and took off on an 86-yard scramble that went into the record book as the longest touchdown run from scrimmage in Bulldog history to that point. The Red and Black went on to win the game and finished the season as the winners of the state, conference, and national championships.

We invite you to join in the thread and cheer on the ‘Dawgs as they look to follow up their division championship with a state championship before moving on to the SEC Championship Game and whatever lies beyond. Please pay heed to your moderators, who are here to help.

Go ‘Dawgs!
