Game Day Open Comment Thread and Honorary Game Captain

New, 12 comments

Saturday is upon us once more, so the time has come to put up the weekly game day open comment thread. Your reflections, ruminations, and visceral reactions to today's college football action go in the comments below.

It also is time to name this week's Dawg Sports honorary game captain. I thought about going with Kirby Moore, Pat Hodgson, and Bob Taylor, who combined for the game-winning 73-yard flea-flicker touchdown that gave Georgia an 18-17 win over Alabama in 1965, but that controversial Bulldog victory occurred between the hedges, so I decided instead to go with Thomas Davis.

In a hard-fought classic S.E.C. battle that went down to the wire, Georgia saw a 24-12 lead in Bryant-Denny Stadium dissolve on October 5, 2002, when the Crimson Tide came back to claim a 25-24 lead. The 'Dawgs marched down the field and tacked on a Billy Bennett field goal to reclaim a 27-25 advantage. The game was finally over when Thomas Davis intercepted Brodie Croyle's final pass to seal the deal and give the Bulldogs their first win ever in Tuscaloosa.

Here's hoping history repeats itself tonight.

Go 'Dawgs!
