The season draws a little bit closer with each passing day. The good people of Dawg Nation await its return with eager anticipation and, in some circles (such as the one I inhabit), crippling fear. Passing this time is excruciating...
But perhaps some delicious tidbits from across the internet will calm us. These are your Wednesday Morning Dawg Bites:
- In case you missed it, Ft. Lauderdale 4*Star WR Elijah Moore Committed to the G last night:

Its likely the beginning of a pretty big week for the Dawgs in terms of the 2018 class.
An aside: To any jackwagon that wants to point out that the young man wrote “The University of Gerogia”, I make that mistake at least 5 times a day and I teach your kids. It’s a typo, not “The University of Auburn”. You learn to catch it over time.
- Speaking of wide receivers, despite what may be the most obvious headline in the history of journalism, the Macon Telegraph has a nice reminder that the receiving corps is likely the key to this season. If somebody, anybody will step up, it may make all the difference.
- Former Georgia beast Thomas Davis has signed what will probably be his last NFL contract, staying with the Carolina Panthers. Davis is likely to be one of those rare players that plays his entire career for the same team. While I’m certainly no Panthers fan, I am a massive Thomas Davis fan. And though I won’t be rooting for the Panthers to win the division or make the playoffs, I’ll certainly be hoping for Davis to have a great year. Watching his play has been a great joy of mine over the years.
- In other good news, it looks like Georgia tailback D’Andre Swift will be back from injury in very short order. I’m not expecting Swift to get a ton of looks a tailback this year (although him performing well enough for me to be wrong would be a nice surprise) due to the presence of Nick Chubb, Sony Michel, Elijah Holyfield, and the perpetually surprising Brian Herrien. But he could be a really nice player on special teams or in specific packages designed for his skill set.
So honestly, that’s a pretty great way to start the day, right? Enjoy your Wednesday, keep counting down the hours, and until next time...
