Mizzou Is Doing Everything It Can to Tick Me Off


Cheap shots at our mascot? Weak, lame, and really, really annoying. Go 'Dawgs!



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.

Dennis Dodd Ranks Sanford Stadium Nation's Tenth Best


Of course, that makes it only the fifth-best in the SEC, in his estimation. Also, Dennis needs to learn that "UGA" is the school and "Uga" is the dog. Go 'Dawgs!

I Think We Have Found Our Uga IX


Do you remember the bulldog puppy Isaiah Crowell held up on national signing day? Of course you do. The puppy is owned by Mike Woods, whose bald dome (emblazoned with the Uga head logo) is visible during commercial bumps at Georgia sporting events. Woods was asked to allow the puppy to be used during Crowell's announcement ceremony. The puppy is named Magical Munson Woods. He comes from the Uga line; Uga VI was his great-uncle, and Woods says he's "got the papers to prove it." Woods intends to offer Magical Munson Woods to the Seilers and the school so he can serve as Uga IX. To recap: Magical Munson Woods is part of the Uga line, but he comes from an offshoot of that line, which may help from a breeding standpoint; he is named for Larry Munson; he is owned by one of the school's most well-known and visible fans; he was held up by Isaiah Crowell on national signing day. The search is over, folks. We have ourselves a winner. As soon as the Seilers say Magical Munson Woods is old enough to serve, he should ascend to the throne as Uga IX. Give that dog a bone. Go 'Dawgs!

AP Voters Rank Ralphie Ahead of Uga in Mascot Poll


I saw Ralphie in Athens in 2006, and, although I had looked forward to seeing a live buffalo between the hedges, I remember thinking she (yes, Ralphie is a girl, just like Spuds McKenzie) was a huge letdown. Uga is way cooler than Ralphie, as the Sports Illustrated cover established nearly 15 years ago. Also, as vineyarddawg pointed out, that lunge at the Auburn player in 1996 would have been a good deal uglier if it had been Ralphie on that leash. Go 'Dawgs!

My Interview with Team Speed Kills


As promised, my answers to C&F's questions are available at SB Nation's SEC-centric weblog. Yes, my answer to the athletic director/Uga question is featured, as well. Go 'Dawgs!

Curran Drafted by the Titans


As the first Dawg picked in the draft in the late third round, I wish all the luck to Rennie in the pros.

This is Why David Hale is a Great Beat Reporter


Well played. I particularly liked the way he italicized the first letter of each paragraph to spell out his message. (I once did something similar with regard to a girl I went out with who had six letters in her first name, six letters in her middle name, and six letters in her last name; I wrote a poem in three stanzas with six lines per stanza and started each line with a letter of her name, so that it spelled out her name down the left-hand side of the page. I should've noticed the significance of her having six letters in each of her three names, but I didn't recognize it until it was too late.) But I digress. Good stuff from David Hale. Go 'Dawgs!

UConn DB Coach Scott Lakatos Named Secondary Coach At UGA


University of Connecticut secondary coach Scott Lakatos has been named to coach the defensive backs at the University of Georgia according to an announcement Monday by Bulldog head coach Mark Richt. "We’re very pleased that Scott has accepted the offer to join our defensive staff," said Richt. "He has an outstanding resume of success over the course of his career and will bring a great deal of experience and expertise to our coaching staff." There's a good article about Lakatos at bleacher report.

PETA Outduels Northeast In Patent Absurdity Sweepstakes


It was bad enough that we had to hear all that nonsense from Forbes Magazine about how "Hail Flutie" was so important because it made northeastern media elites recognize that college football exists---some of us recall historic moments from 1984 on their own merits---but these PETA nimrods who opportunistically swoop down to spread their sanctimonious swill every time a college loses a live mascot really take the cake. They don't even have their facts straight. Uga is a privately-owned family pet. Sonny Seiler is going to own pet bulldogs irrespective of whether one of them is patrolling the Sanford Stadium sideline. Live animal mascots are part of what make college football great and the conditions in which they are kept are far from cruel. Heck, Uga probably has better health care than I do. The only public service PETA renders is getting hot actresses to pose naked to express their opposition to something or other. (I'm not sure what, exactly; my attention generally is arrested by the hot actress posing naked, although, if I knew what PETA was taking a stand against, I would give whatever it is they oppose my full-throated support, so that it would continue and PETA would be compelled to get more hot actresses to pose naked in opposition to it. Largely for the same reason, I favor killing off all the whales, so that they will be extinct by the 23rd century, so that, when Admiral Kirk returns to Earth at the start of "Star Trek IV," he'll have to go back in time to get whales and bring them forward in time to save himself from being court martialed. It's all about actions and consequences, people.) PETA needs to sit down, shut up, and quit lecturing Sonny Seiler on what constitutes ethical treatment of a bunch of bulldogs about whom he and his family care far, far more than any obnoxious activists ever will. This is political grandstanding in its most shameful form, and their suggestion---a robot dog? seriously?---is stupid, to boot. Go 'Dawgs!
