College football season is rounding the bend and heading this way like a tailback getting to the corner and rumbling toward the endzone. That means a ton of news coming your way, and we’re here to help you keep track of it daily in ‘Dawg Bites.
Kisner frustrated by finish, but looking forward to his next shot. First, let’s swing by the links. Former Georgia golfer Kevin Kisner led at the beginning of play Sunday but couldn’t close the deal on his first major victory. The always humble Aiken, South Carolina native was pragmatic about his troubles down the stretch, which opened the door for eventual champion Justin Thomas. I don’t know if Kisner will get another shot at the big one, but I sure hope so. I’m a sucker for nice guys finishing first.
Thompson "an absolute monster" in Saturday scrimmage. Jason Butt relays that observers raved about junior defensive tackle Trenton Thompson’s performance in Saturday’s scrimmage. That’s great news for Thompson (looking to bounce back from offseason shoulder surgery), and a UGA defense that will have the good problem of spreading snaps among a half dozen or more returning veteran contributors.
We’ve got us an old-fashioned punting race. You can never have too many consistent punters. This is undisputed in the annals of football history.
Where in the secondary is Aaron Davis??? The versatile senior defensive back is unphased by the possibility of playing all over the secondary. His versatility is our gain.
That should get you started on your day. Until later...
