Good morning, lovelies.
Are you hungover from Valentine's day? I don't mean by alcohol, although that's totally possible and was the case for me one year, but I don't talk about it because we just don't bring up the past like that and oh look what's that over there? *runs away*.
I mean just in general. Maybe you're bummed because you're one of the few people who really, truly dig Valentine's Day, all the way from morning until night. Maybe your plan for romantic excellence flopped. Maybe you found out your significant other was a tweaker, only looking for their next score and was robbing you blind on dates when you would excuse yourself to go to the bathroom. It's not common, but it's entirely possible and could ruin your day if true.
So with all that in mind, I'm here for you, those with hearts that are broken. I'm providing link excellence for you in hopes that it's the first step toward recovery. Do the jump and see what we have in store for you today...
Moving on is important in any relationship if you know you've gotten the most out of where you've been and there's no room to grow. With that in mind, we wish all the best to former UGA RB and S&C Assistant Coach Thomas Brown, who accepted a job to become the running backs coach at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. He truly is a DGD, so it's good to see him furthering his career in coaching.
Improvement is also the name of the game when you're looking to rebound after a terrible Valentine's Day. With that in mind, The Good Senator Blutarsky has a post that gives a little info on what teams can statistically look forward to with the amount of returning starters they have going into next year. Let's just put it this way, if Derek Dooley doesn't make a bowl next year, he's packing his orange pants for an extended vacation.
Another way to get over your bad Valentine's Day is to remember that the grass isn't always greener. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope agrees that making the leap isn't always a good thing, since he's decided he's definitely staying in college for another year. Hopefully his presence pays off in recruiting because we REALLY need it.
Exotic locations are also a great way to move on. The Lady Golf Dawgs took a trip down to Puerto Rico for the Puerto Rico Classic and finished in second. How anyone can win anything in an exotic location is beyond me. There's a reason Hawaii bowl games are always terrible.
If you really want to shake the hangover from Valentine's Day, you have to move forward with a goal in mind. If football is that goal, Dawgs247 has you covered with a Countdown to G-Day Clock up and running. I'll be honest, I was surprised that it's already that close.
They say those who don't remember the past are doomed to repeat it, and so we're hopping in the way-back machine to this post yesterday by EDSBS. The Coach Boom one was my favorite, I must say.
Finally, we have two treats for you to finish out your Valentine's Day hangover. The first thing is to do what Boyd Crowder does and remember your ABC's.
The second is to remember what Puddle of Mudd says (it's SFW...unless "loud" isn't SFW) and to just be OK with that.
Until next time kids.
