Many of you, I suspect, are checking in after a healthy and happy Easter weekend spent with your families and fellow churchgoers. If (as is certainly understandable) you have been away from Dawg Sports since Good Friday or before, here is what you need to know to get caught up on all the important news here in the heart of Bulldog Nation:
- I have taken a new approach in my ongoing efforts to encourage the powers that be in Athens and Ann Arbor to schedule a home and home football series between Georgia and Michigan: secure in the knowledge that money talks, I am now asking all Dawg Sports readers to contact E.S.P.N. and enlist the Worldwide Leader's aid to get this game on the schedule . . . in spite of the fact that money should be no object for either institution.
- Game day superstitions continue to be a hot topic here at Dawg Sports, as I have analyzed the practice of "feasting on the flesh of the enemy" and explained why I no longer blame my wife for Georgia's loss to Auburn in 2004.
Were these all that stood between the Bulldogs and a national title?
- The Diamond Dogs' insistence upon raising my hopes only to dash them again continued over the weekend, as Georgia came back to win the opening game of the Bulldogs' three-game series with Vanderbilt, then dropped a heartbreaker to the 'Dores on Saturday and got blown out on Sunday.
- As always, Herschel Walker remains a class act and, for that reason alone, the 'Dawgs should go back to wearing the red pants the Goal Line Stalker wore when scoring his first collegiate touchdown.
Herschel for President.
- Overzealous A.T.F. agents in Athens took down a Methodist sophomore at gunpoint and the victim is contemplating legal action.
- Given the chance to speak their minds, the fans voiced their opinion regarding the Bulldogs' midseason starter under center. Check to see if your preference prevailed.
Did Joe Tereshinski III finish first?
- Although few football fans pay much attention to either sport, Georgia's women's gymnastics and men's tennis teams are having spectacular seasons that warrant recognition.
- Finally, a quick jog around the blogs on Friday afternoon provided a synopsis of significant traffic in the college football blogosphere.
