Welcome to Tuesday, Bulldog fans. It’s like Monday, in that you are still clinging to last Saturday night, and next Saturday seems real far away. It will be a day or so before you get cranked up with the Weekly TV Schedule, Cocktail Thursday, and the Friday Tailgate, so here are a few nuggets to tide you over:
Do we have freshmen or what? Footballer and quarterback Jake Fromm was named the SEC Freshman of the Week for his performance Saturday night against a top 25 ranked Mississippi State squad. And Women’s Volleyballer T’ara Ceasar was similarly noted for her own stellar work in SEC play over the weekend against teams from the other side of the Chattahoochee.
Revisiting aforementioned win over Dan Mullen’s Bulldog team, by a show of hands, how many of you know that was the University of Georgia’s 799th football victory? (DaveTheDawg, you can put your hand down now.) Which means we have a chance to rack up #800 this Saturday on the banks of whatever cesspool flows through Knoxville.
Monday brought practice for our pigskin players, and probably the biggest update surrounds some key injuries. Seth Emerson reports on the wounded, telling us that Jacob Eason can still throw and jog. He also tells us that Solomon Kindley was taking snaps but not with the first team. Kindley’s ankle x-rays were negative, but is that a good thing or a bad thing? To my eyes, Seth tries to twist Coach Kirby Smart’s wording on Malkolm Parrish’s late appearance vs. MSU to Jacob Eason’s upcoming field time, but that’s not how I see it.
During Monday’s media session, Kirby Smart was kind enough to release Aaron Davis and Sony Michel, who both answered some questions. Head ‘Dawg Smart answered a few of his own, but I think he was imitating Nick Saban imitating Mark Richt, and didn’t do either very well. Still, it was worth reading/viewing.
Most of us know that Saturday’s game vs. the
imminently fired Butch Jones Tennessee Volunteers is when we get our first test of daylight and Brad Nessler. But did you also know that we go back to the future for a noon game against Vanderbilt on October 7th? Yep, a nooner. In Nashville. With a losing streak against the ‘Dores. Coming off consecutive tough SEC games. With 5 more to go after that. Yay.
If it weren’t for this site, I would have to regularly visit other websites for Georgia Bulldog news (swallow the wee bit of sick in my throat), and this readership is the tops in bringing pertinent, relevant, and entertaining information to bear. So do so in the comments, or rail against my feeble attempts. Either way, and as always...
