Run, don't walk, to join the Georgia all-day all-sports Saturday open comment thread! - Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports
Saturday is a busy day in Bulldog Nation, as the Georgia Bulldogs will be in action in men's basketball, men's and women's lacrosse, softball, women's tennis, and track and field. Join Dawg Sports for the all-day open comment thread!
We opened an all-day all-sports comment thread yesterday, and we’re doing it again today because, doggone it, they’re fun, we’re busy on multiple fronts, and the Georgia Bulldogs deserve our support in any athletic endeavor in which we field teams in intercollegiate competition. Consider the schedule for this Saturday in Bulldog Nation:
The day begins with women’s lacrosse, as the Georgia ladies get their season underway with games against Georgia Tech and Tennessee at 10:00 a.m. and noon Eastern in Atlanta.
The Red and Black women’s lacrosse team is not the only Bulldog squad playing two today. After splitting yesterday’s double header, the Georgia women’s softball team will try to win rematches with both teams today, as the Red and Black meet Elon at 12:30 p.m. and face Ohio State at 3:00 p.m.
At 3:30 p.m., the fourth-seeded Georgia women’s tennis team is scheduled to begin play in the quarterfinals of the ITA National Team Indoor Championships. The Bulldog ladies will face fifth-seeded California in pursuit of their fourth indoor national title, and their seventh top two finish, in their 23rd appearance in the tournament. A win today would run Georgia’s all-time record at the ITA Indoor Championships to 50-19.
Finally, the day finishes up with a trio of events at 5:00 p.m. The Red and Black track and field teams, who will send one squad into action at the Husky Classic at 2:00 p.m., will be back in action in Blacksburg at the Virginia Tech Elite Meet. At the same time, the Georgia men’s lacrosse team will get the 2013 campaign underway against Wake Forest and Mark Fox’s Georgia Bulldogs will welcome Texas A&M to Stegeman Coliseum in the hope of continuing their recent hot streak. The game will be televised on ESPNU, and you may track the statistics here.
That sounds like a full rich day, doesn’t it? Dive into the thread, join us for the fun, and cheer on the Bulldogs!
