First, in keeping with the season, I offer a track that fell into my lap a few days ago, since when I haven’t been able to get enough of it. Viewing the video is optional, but it’s best if you can listen to it cranked up.
CUBAN REINDEER, EVERYBODY!
And now, your UGA all-sports wrap-up.
Why, yes. We do play basketball at the University of Georgia. While we've been covering each of the men's games with (painful) detail, the women's team keeps rolling along. The women’s basketball team remains undefeated. Since we last checked in with the Lady Dogs here at Dawg Sports, UGA has improved to 12-0. Returning from final exams, Georgia hosted Lipscomb Sunday and beat the Nashville Bison 93-42. Last night, the Lady Dogs were in Fort Worth where they survived a TCU comeback attempt. Georgia was up 22 points early in the second half, but the Horned Frogs battled back to make it a seven-point game. That’s about as scary as it gets so far for Georgia, who held on for a 72-59 win. The pre-conference slate wraps up on 28 December at Illinois. Conference play opens at home against Mizzou on 3 January.
CSS is airing a behind-the-scenes look at Georgia gymnastics in advance of the 2013 season. The show airs tonight at 9 p.m. and will be four times over the next week. Check local listings if your television content provider carries CSS.
Georgia’s women’s lacrosse club team announced via their Facebook page that they’re ranked #9 in the pre-season polls. The 2013 season gets under way in Atlanta on 9 February 2013 in a double header against Tennessee and Georgia Tech. The men’s team opens 2013 play the same day, hosting Wake Forest.
January will be here quickly, and the swimming and diving, track, tennis, gymnastics, and equestrian squads will return to competition. It’s about to get busy. In the meantime, here we are in the most wonderful time of the year, Bowl season. As always, Spears has been keeping you up to speed with all of the holiday excitement by telling you on what not to bet. Please don’t miss MaconDawg’s caroling tips that started earlier this week by walking through an Auburn wonderland. And if you haven’t taken advantage of the history l’arnin’ available from Kyle’s series on the best UGA football teams that never won titles, please do yourself a favor and check them out. See how the teams from 1912, 1931, 1941, 1945, 1971, 1978, and 1983 compare to the most recent stellar squad that didn’t win a title, 2012.
