Gameday Morning Dawg Bites

In which we prepare for black jerseys, Thanksgiving turkeys, and some Ragin’ Cajuns...

We’ve reached the penultimate weekend of college football’s regular season. Its the Saturday before Thanksgiving and only a week until we add to the already sizable differential in Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate victories. In the meantime, the Ragin’ Cajuns of Louisiana-Lafayette are headed into Sanford Stadium at noon. So kick back, open a fresh bottle of Maker’s Mark, and enjoy one of the last college football weekends we’ll see for a while.

The open comment thread for today’s game should be up before long, but until then you should feel free to share any early morning shenanigans in the comment thread below.

And now, on to the news!

  • To begin, Jordan Hill of the Macon Telegraph is kind enough to take us on a trek through several unconvincing wins on Georgia’s resume and all the way back to the turnover-laden nightmare of the Nicholls State game. Hill’s premise as the Dawgs approach UL-L? Georgia better find a way to protect the football. Can’t say I disagree.
  • Having been made somewhat nervous by the previous article, I sauntered over to The Red and Black. What did I find there? Emily Giambalvo detailing Georgia’s last five losses to non-Power 5 teams. Now, granted, Louisiana-Lafayette doesn’t strike me as one of those teams, but this is not exactly making me feel as at ease about today’s game as I would like.
  • Also from The Red and Black, Jed May reminds us that Sunday marks the 5 year anniversary of the death of Larry Munson. Many things about this make me sad. But I am also filled with immense gratitude for the innumerable ways he informed and grew my fandom. He was one of a kind and he will never be forgotten. Here’s to you, Larry.
  • As a rule, I refuse to link the AJC... but for those who have yet to read them, Scott Woerner has some really outstanding anecdotes about the goings on in McWhorter Hall during his time at UGA. I miss college, so I’m going to let it slide just this once.
  • If you aren’t keeping up with the weekly “Bulldogs in the Pros” updates over at, you really ought to. Lots of former Dawgs doing some really great things at the next level.
  • And of course, Frank Martin is at it again. The. Feels.

That’s it for now folks. Enjoy your Saturday and....
