Kenny Gaines Chooses Georgia to Cap Off a Successful Tuesday in Bulldog Nation

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been clear
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right

Well, so much for Slow News Day Tuesday!

Because the NCAA found no violation of the Association’s rules, Jarvis Jones was cleared to play, forcing cruel fate to get creative. The Dawg-Gone Podcast was posted. Though South Carolina was picked to win the division, Aaron Murray was praised as a difference-maker. To top it all off, Orson Swindle once again forced me to visit so I could get one of his jokes.

On a day filled with good news for the Georgia Bulldogs, though, DavetheDawg brought us one of the more encouraging announcements; viz., Cobb County shooting guard Kenny Gaines committed to bring his 6’3" frame, 21 points per game average, and 3.2 GPA to Athens. Surely, Mark Fox’s addition of Gaines to a 2012 recruiting class that is set to include point guard Charles Mann is a sign of positive energy in the Classic City, right? Gaines sure thinks so, as he told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Really, it was Coach Fox that won me over. On Monday night, my mom and I were sitting in my room and praying what decision to make, and what schools to really consider and look at. It was like five minutes after we got done praying that Coach Fox gave us a call. We felt like that really was a sign from God. We asked Him to show us as fast as He could what schools to pick. After we got that phone call, we really knew that it was Georgia.

It may not quite be wet fleece on dry ground, but you could do a lot worse in the search for signs that things are looking up in Bulldog Nation. At the very least, Coach Fox does our hearts good.

Go ‘Dawgs!
