Super Bowl Sunday Dawg Bites

It's been a busy week in the blogosphere, what with the 2006 College Football Blogger Awards and all, so, if you're like me, you've gotten a bit behind, but don't worry, 'cause I'm here to get you all caught up in rapid-fire fashion, so here we go:

  • For those of you fretting over Doug Gillett's self-esteem, fear not; he has adopted an "I'm O.K., Tyra Banks is O.K." outlook on life. (Whether you're also O.K. is your issue, apparently.) For his part, Paul Westerdawg is taking his defeat in stride, but, if the Georgia Sports Blog has as good a year in 2007 as it did in 2006, Paul and Dawgnoxious will get the recognition they deserve next year.
  • I don't cover recruiting, for two reasons. First of all, the only way I would have the foggiest notion of which high school players are the best in the state (much less in the country) would be to consult the sources that anyone interested in recruiting already is consulting, so my sole utility would be as a conduit of information already available elsewhere, to which I could add nothing. Secondly, I agree with Orson Swindle that recruiting analysis is a bit creepy, not unlike the countdown clocks many bars displayed marking the days, hours, minutes, and seconds remaining until the Olsen twins turned 18. Fortunately, you can get your recruiting fix from MaconDawg.

Unfortunately, they never recorded a song called "Sweet Home, Georgia."

  • The Diamond Dogs open their season next Friday with a home game at Foley Field against Oregon State. How well do you expect Georgia to fare in baseball in 2007?
  • Finally, since it's Super Bowl Sunday and all, I wanted to close with a quotation from my old pal Chuck, who offered the following observation in a recent e-mail:
More evidence a playoff system is not beneficial to college football is the Super Bowl. To be honest, I have forgotten several times who is even playing this weekend. But I know K-Fed has a commercial. I have even seen the commercial now. Oh, and there is concern that commercials and hype account for 25% of the Super Bowl audience (read: people not interested in the game, the teams, the sport, the athletes, the coaches). Can you imagine 25,000 people showing up to Sanford Stadium not interested in the game? I sure as hell can't. Nothing about this weekend has to do with anything that happened in the regular season.

I couldn't have said it better myself. Enjoy the rest of the Super Bowl, everyone.

Go 'Dawgs!
