College students across the country have wrapped up their semester and are headed home for Christmas vacation. I have a couple of days until I can do the same. Now, I’d walk into traffic for the 75 sixth graders I get to teach about H-R diagrams, the real causes for World War I (hint: it wasn’t the assassination of Franz Ferdinand... at least, not really), and clay sedimentology in coastal Georgia marshes (my specialty... no, really. I’ve done funded research and everything). But I don’t mind telling you that I could use a break. You probably could, too. So let’s do this:
And now for some Friday Morning Dawg Bites...
- The Dawgs gave out their season awards at the annual gala.
- Nine current and former Dawgs will graduate today. But since none of them are getting engineering degrees, I think we can all agree that this is meaningless. Or we could be big boy adults and agree that many, if not all, of them will make substantial contributions to society
- We have, what I think, is a pretty reasonable score prediction for the Sugar Bowl.
- Speaking of which, want a reason why non-playoff bowl games are a good thing (because they’re fun... which is sort of why we’re fans...)? Because some of our early enrollees are going to get some work in. Not bad for an exhibition, huh?
- Another piece on former Georgia TE Arthur Lynch and his journey to the military. Again, I’d like to take this opportunity to let you know that Lynch is a fantastic Twitter follow. Artie is my boi!
- Georgia has, predictably, sold through its Sugar Bowl ticket allotment.
- Lane, Sark, now Durk. This seems pretty on brand to me.
- The Lady Dawgs are ready to get back into action.
- Georgia Football celebrates all things Deandre Baker:
- Get ready for a big game at the Stege tomorrow night...

That’s all for now, folks. Until next time...
