Friday Morning 'Dawg Bites.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

This time tomorrow it'll be game day. But first you've got work to do. We'll let you get to that after you catch up on what's happening in the lead up to tomorrow's matchup with the Troy Trojans.

Richt: Troy, Georgia both "desperate" for win Saturday
Mark Richt has done a good job of being politically correct in the lead up to this one. But remember, the Bulldogs are a 41 point favorite over and 0-3 Troy team that just blew a 14 point lead to lose to Abilene Christian. I don't know that Georgia covers, but anything other than a blowout is disappointing in this sort of match up.

Troy AD has 'full confidence' in embattled Blakeney

The Trojans are 0-3 for first time in longtime coach Larry Blakeney's 24-year career. Blakeney is both well-known and well respected in the coaching profession, having won 175 games while building the Trojan program from the ground up. It is going to take a lot more than what we've seen so far for him to be ousted, but make no mistake, a strong showing in Athens on Saturday would go a long way to helping out his cause.

The Trojans pass-happy spread attack put up a ton of yards the last time they visited Athens. This game should provide a good chance for the Red and Black secondary to work on fundamentals against a team that will provide a stronger test than some might otherwise believe.

The Banner Herald has a good statistical breakdown for the two teams stand getting into this weekend. Long story short, the Troy Trojans are bad at football. Like, all aspects of it.

The Blawg Housel breaks down this weekend's game, and points out that one of the virtues of playing Troy is the similarity of Blakely's offense to the ones the dogs with us later against Missouri and Auburn.

So there you have it. Now, go confidently in the direction of your dreams. And don't throw into double coverage, lock on your receivers, or overlook the trailing linebacker. Until later...

Go 'Dawgs!!!
