It’s Sunday after a conference and division win, one that stopped a losing streak, and one that showed improvement in areas that everyone knew needed improving. If you celebrated late, and were late waking up, then welome to this late edition of ‘Dawg Bites. Thank goodness DavetheDawg had his thoughts early and MaconDawg used his Rodrigo RecSpecs to look for superlatives. Combing the interwebs, here are some of the notes and news from Bulldog Nation:
There’s a reason Mecole Hardman was back deep for that final kick, but that reason is an injury to Reggie Davis. Trenton Thompson looks to have a hip pointer, and Tyler Catalina has an as yet undiagnosed lower leg injury. Not a bad ledger at the end of the day.
Much has been made of Georgia Offensive Coordinator Jim Chaney and his spot in the coaches box, instead of the sideline. And taking a page directly out of “Coach Speak - The Rookie Season”, Head Coach Kirby Smart doesn’t think it was that big of a deal and didn’t necessarily correlate to success.
I did not immediately see an article from Jeff Schultz. I also did not look hard for one. Please forgive me.
If you like playing our biggest rivals on Saturday afternoons at 3:30, and for having those games broadcast by CBS, then you my friend are in luck for the
Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry.
The PGA Tour is in Las Vegas this weekend, and rookie Lee McCoy (and arguably the most decorated UGA collegiate golfer) made his first tournament cut as a professional. Five former ‘Dawgs are in the field, all five made the cut, and three are within 4 strokes of the lead going into the final round. You can watch it on Golf Channel, or listen to it on PGA Tour Radio.
Continuing the golf team, the UGA Men’s program is in Hawai’i (sheesh) for their last fall tourney, and they had a heckuva Saturday moving into first place for the final round.
It’s always a great day to be a ‘Dawg, some days are just better than others. As always...
