Good day, all. Time for some more Dawggly newsy-news and bits-of-tid on this post election Wednesday morning. Here we go...
Georgia appears to be a bit banged-up on the defensive side of the ball, and the availability of DaQuan Hawkins-Muckle, who is suffering from a high-ankle sprain, is still in doubt.
Auburn has some injury issues as well although it appears that Kamryn Pettway will play on Saturday after pulling something on a break-away run vs. Vandy last Saturday. Quarterback Sean White will start, but is “not 100 percent” according to Gus Malzahn. Auburn’s offense is not nearly as effective without White. As MaconDawg alluded to on Monday, Georgia needs to pin their ears back and hit White (cleanly, of course) at every available opportunity. I suspect we’ll see a lot of short, quick release passes, but if White sets up in the pocket, we need to greet him with some physicality at every opportunity.
Saturday is going to be a big day for visiting recruits for the 3:30 CBS kickoff, including Walker Little (6’ 8”, 300 OT), a super-talented 5-Star left tackle out of Texas. He’s a Stanford/Texas lean at the moment, but you gotta get kids like this on campus to have a shot. He’ll be here Saturday, understands the opportunity to play early. Question is: Do we have a shot?
This is excellent (h/t Rex Robinson):
Rodrigo Blankenship’s father really wants his son to be put on scholarship. Of course he does.
If you have not been reading Scott Woerner’s weekly entries, you should. Perhaps you’re part of the younger generation that doesn’t quite connect with some of the older Dawgs, but for some of us, this stuff is gold. I vividly remember the ‘77 Kentucky game where we got absolutely manhandled...but Scott Woerner ran wild on punt returns all day long. Good stuff.
(Edit: Even from the end zone bleachers I could tell that Prince Charles was not a good lookin’ fella.)
