Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood Morning Bulldog Nation!
The clock is winding down on the dreadfully long off-season but sadly time has not yet expired. Your friendly Dawg Sports Captain & Crew recognize the sheer agony of waiting through the last days before the new season dawns and so we are bringing you a little something every day to hopefully help take the edge off.
Keep checking in as we bring you the latest news in Daily Dawg Bites, a taste of the upcoming season with Know Your Enemy & Position Group Breakdowns and all the Dawg news that’s fit to print on the interwebs.
Without further ado, these are your Thursday Morning Dawg Bites:
College Football’s premier news source, The Wall Street Journal brings us this non-scoop we had already figured out for ourselves. Hugh Freeze made lots of phone calls to escort services while away from home on recruiting trips and that’s why they fired him.
The Athens Banner Herald fills us in on the latest happenings at practice including who was running stadium steps and why Coach Smart was mad at him. Hint: There is no “I” in TEAM! I also got the impression Coach isn’t a big fan of running the Wilddawg. Either that or he was trying reverse psychology on our opponents and plans to run it ever other down all season long.
Chip Towers has a nice write-up on some JUCO transfers that may end up starters in fall over at Dawg Nation.

Jason Butt has a source that says Malcolm Parrish was out of practice Wednesday due to injury of unknown type or severity. With Parrish out, Aaron Davis took reps in his place. If Parrish’s injury is severe enough to miss game time, we could see JUCO transfer from the University of Tulsa J. R. Reed starting. In addition, Freshman RB D’Andre Swift was also out of practice with a “medical issue” Tuesday & Wednesday. Swift is competing with Elijah Holyfield and Brian Herrien for the #3 spot behind Chubb and Michel. No notes of any injuries to either Holyfield or Herrien.
Was it just me or did you hear the faintest hint of Larry Munson talking about Holyfield & Herrien lining up in the backfield? No? Hmmm, I must still be dreaming. Y’all wake me up when the season starts will ya?
Until next time…..
