Thursday Morning Dawg Bites

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

We are now just two days away from one heck of a Saturday of college football. Granted, we may have to wait most of the day Saturday to get to the really good stuff, but we’re still almost there. The problem is, of course, that the next two days will inevitably pass at a snail’s pace. So you’ll be needing something to pass the time. To that end, here are your Thursday Morning Dawg Bites:

  • The Macon Telegraph has an interesting piece up which details Jake Fromm’s command of the offense during practices. Now how that translates to Saturday’s game is anyone’s guess.
  • The Red & Black details the most recent Dawg practice. Of particular note is the fact that we seem to have a consistent OL lineup developing. That warms my heart.
  • So when asked about Notre Dame’s history and playing in their stadium, Dominick Sanders had the following to say:

“Not really, I didn’t really know anything about that... But you know, my main thing is coming out and punishing them from the start. I really don’t care about what they’ve got going on.”

“Oh no, no, no... I just care about my guys doing what we’ve gotta do: Punishing them from the start.”

“Me personally, nah. I don’t really know anything about them and I don’t really care... Just my main thing is let’s put them pads on and let’s go to work.”

Now all of that may seem pretty innocuous (and inspiring for that matter) to you and me, but damned if Chip Towers isn’t gonna do his Chip Towers-y best to make a thing out of it. By the way, if you read that story, feel free to contrast what Sanders said with the Notre Dame running back that claims he’s never heard of Nick Chubb or Sony Michel and didn’t know that Notre Dame lost to Georgia as the Dawgs claimed the 1980 National Championship. There’s focused on your job, then there’s just willful ignorance (particularly on the former, if not the latter).

  • In contrast to that bit of nonsense, if you really want to trash talk someone, this is how you do it (and how you gracefully receive it):

That’s it for today. Enjoy the rest of your week and, especially, your weekend. Until next time...
