Wednesday Morning ‘Dawg Bites

There’s college football coming up around the bend, and this morning’s headlines aren't going to read themselves. So let's get straight to it.

Jonathan Ledbetter remains suspended for this weekend, the fourth game the sophomore from Tucker will miss following two offseason alcohol-related arrests. I suspect Ledbetter may be nearing the end of his exile, but good luck getting Kirby Smart to tell you that.

Freshman wide receiver Riley Ridley in the other hand will be available, despite continuing to nurse a broken thumb which required screws to be inserted into his broken digit last week. Catching passes from Jacob Eason with a broken thumb sounds like a pretty daunting task to me. But what do I know?

Georgia has excelled at creating turnovers this season but struggled to create points off those takeaways. Now the Bulldogs are trying to figure out how to reverse that before playing an Ole Miss team that's lost twice this year thanks to points off turnovers.

Speaking of which, Red Cup Rebellion believes the Rebs may have found their offensive identity against Alabama.

The Rebels are also looking to improve their third down defense after surrendering first downs 45% of the time instead of getting off the field.

There’s also some interesting basketball recruiting news, as Georgia is in the final four for Pace Academy power forward Wendell Carter. The 6’10 five star is also considering Tech, Duke, and Harvard, which is but one clue that he's not your average blue chip basketball prospect.

That should get your day started. Until later...

Go ‘Dawgs!!!
