Tuesday Morning 'Dawg Bites: This One's For The Seniors.

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

This Saturday will mark the last home game of the 2014 season, and the last of their careers for 22 Georgia seniors. It's been a special group, one that came to Athens on the heels of a rocky patch in the Mark Richt era. They've since come close to playing for a national title and are on the cusp of leading the squad to a potential 10 (or 11, or 12) win season. This morning's Dawg Bites spotlights some of the seniors, though we'll certainly see lots of good stuff written about others in the coming days. We've also got some reflections on defending the triple option/flexbone offense, including its underrated passing component.

Houston will act like a senior, but hope he's not | Georgia Bulldogs blog | Columbus Ledger Enquirer
Kolton Houston has applied to the NCAA for a sixth year of eligibility, but will participate in Senior Days anyway, just in case it's not granted. Personally, while I would love for Houston to get another year, I doubt it will happen. That would require a degree of empathy from the NCAA that just doesn't seem likely, especially given that this was perhaps the one case in which Georgia and a Georgia student-athlete really butted heads with the gang in Indianapolis.

Witht the last Bulldog home game coming up, it's time to take a look at some of the seniors about to lace 'em up for the last time between the hedges. David Andrews for example learned blue-collar lessons from his grandfather, and has used them to become Georgia's leader.

Defending the Triple Option: Some Basic Realities. - Dawg Sports
A handy little reference we posted here before the 2008 Georgia Tech game. Most of this still holds true, and it's interesting that there are a lot more offenses out there now forcing defenses to make those midplay reads that are a hallmark of the option. Until later...
