GEORGIA FOOTBALL BLUE RIBBON FREE PREVIEW

ESPN does their own preview mag style preseason reveiws every year and usually you have to have an insider account to view them and they pick 2 teams to allow free access. This year they chose the Ark. Razorbacks from the west and your UGA Bulldogs from the east! Read and enjoy learning about everything you already knew about the bulldogs this coming year.

Live by the Worldwide Leader, Die by the Worldwide Leader

Craig James has made official his intention to run for the U.S. Senate . . . and, the instant the Pony ceased to be an ESPN employee, the Worldwide Leader turned on him in a heartbeat. It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy, but, man, the boys in Bristol are cold-blooded. (Hat tip: Senator Blutarsky.) Go 'Dawgs!

My Son Has Submitted a Movie Idea to Lunchables.com

Thomas, my seven-year-old, came up with the idea of a movie about the Georgia football team fighting and winning World War II. When he made that suggestion, I told him there actually was some truth to it, since every player on the Bulldogs' 1942 national championship team was wearing a military uniform in 1943. (If it weren't for the fact that the Worldwide Leader's excellent "30 for 30" series was confined to the era in which ESPN has been on the air, the impact of World War II upon college football would make an excellent documentary subject.) In any case, I helped my son input his movie idea at the above website. My contribution to the project was to come up with the title: "The Dawgs of War." Go 'Dawgs!

Chris Low Predicts Georgia Will End Up in Liberty Bowl

I am torn on this one. On the one hand, a New Year's Eve bowl would be a gift; on the other hand, I don't want to play a team from Conference USA. The Music City Bowl is the earliest SEC bowl game (December 30), but it offers an opportunity to renew the rivalry with Clemson. The Compass Bowl is the weakest SEC tie-in, but it also takes place on January 8. While I am not crazy about any of these options, each has advantages that might make it the dog with the fewest fleas. Go 'Dawgs!

Chris Low Has Georgia in Something Called the Compass Bowl

I'm going to have to look that one up, because it's a new one on me; I don't even know where it's played, or what the corporate sponsor makes. Here's the kicker, though: it's a January 8 bowl game, making it the third-latest bowl game (behind only the Fight Hunger Bowl and, of course, the BCS National Championship Game). I'm still holding out hope for a Music City Bowl matchup with Clemson, but, failing that, I have to say that a January bowl game (with the accompanying practice time stretching into the new year) has a lot of appeal. Of course, first the Bulldogs have to get bowl eligible. First things first. Go 'Dawgs!

Stick a Fork in Conference Expansion . . .

. . . because it appears to be done. (Hat tip: SG Standard.) ESPN reports that Texas has announced its intention to remain in the Big 12, and school sources at Texas A&M are offering a similar indication. Gene Stallings certainly has backed off of his hardline stance in favor of the Aggies moving to the SEC. Frankly, I don't get it. I don't see how the Big 12 can negotiate a better television deal after losing the marquee program in the Big 12 North, the Denver media market, and the right to host a conference championship game. If, however, that is what has happened---and it certainly appears that it has---we all owe Dan Beebe a huge apology. After getting so psyched up over the ostensibly impending arrival of Texas A&M, I am disappointed at the loss of the opportunity to see the Bulldogs play a conference road game at what is (in my humble opinion) the most well-named college stadium in the country. At the end of the day, though, the twelve-team SEC has been an enormous success, and the prospect of twelve teams in the Big Ten and the Pac-10 does not threaten the long-term viability of the league. With neither the Big Ten nor the Pac-10 gaining a toehold in the Lone Star State, the SEC is not imperiled by failing to make such inroads. In the end, it looks like initial projections were correct, and we all got caught up in the excitement of what turned out to be much ado about not very much. Oh, well. It was fun while it lasted. Go 'Dawgs!

New Year's Day Big Ten-SEC Battles to Air Opposite One Another

They're rearranging your New Year's Day. The good news is that you get to sleep in a little later. The bad news is that there are fewer hours of football from start to finish. The great news is that you won't have to watch any of it on Fox. The upshot is that the odds are pretty good that, at 2:00 p.m. on January 1, 2011, you'll be watching the Bulldogs play a Big Ten team in the Sunshine State. Go 'Dawgs!

ESPN Is Out to Get the Pac-10

Apparently, the boys from Bristol have an axe to grind with the very same Southern California squad they spent all of 2005 hyping as the Best Team Ever and to which they gave free publicity by inviting Pete Carroll to join them as a guest commentator for the national championship game. Evidently, insufficient attention has been paid to the number of player arrests at Georgia and Florida. That baffles me . . . it seems we're constantly hearing about the number of player arrests at both programs; it seems to me that the "Program Out of Control!" stories being written about Oregon now are merely rehashes of the same stories about Florida a year ago. Also, USC fans are bent out of shape that no one is talking about player arrests at Tennessee. Maybe the significance of the term "Fulmer Cup" escapes them . . . and maybe they've forgotten on whose watch last year's Volunteer misdeeds occurred. Paragon SC is a friend, but he and I aren't watching the same media outlets if he thinks arrests of SEC student-athletes are underreported and the Trojans aren't the darlings of the Worldwide Leader. Go 'Dawgs!
