Friday Morning Dawg Bites Don’t Want No Scrubs

As you know by now, this year I’m using my Dawg Bites slot to take you on a horrific musical journey through my teenage years with songs that also embody my current feelings about Georgia’s upcoming contest. This week (as you may have heard) our #3 Georgia Bulldogs begin their SEC Title defense against perennial Week 2 SEC East favorites, the #24 South Carolina Gamecocks. In an effort not to put too fine a point on the reasoning behind my musical selection, I’ll just leave this here and let you draw your own conclusions:

And now, on to your news for the day:

  • To begin, The Red & Black has an analysis of which position groups should provide the advantage for both the Dawgs and the Gamecocks. Perhaps the next time Saturday Down South is hiring, they should look to UGA’s independent student-run paper. One might argue that it’s status as such means The Red & Black is biased (though that certainly hasn’t been my experience), but at least these don’t sound like the lunatic ravings of a madman.
  • That said, I could have done without dragging this memory up.
  • So let’s look to the future. Georgia Football has a trailer for Week 2 and its message is clear:
  • Also via Twitter, we have one of my favorite recurring features: A Throwdown Thursday video from the Georgia S&C staff!
  • Heading back to discussion of tomorrow’s game, CBS Sports has their predictions up. If you ask me, Aaron Taylor has been spending a little too much time thinking about Tight Ends and rawdoggin’ (I promise that link is safe for work).
  • The Charleston Post & Courier has a nice profile on Sonny Seiler and the Ugas. Not a ton of new information here, but you can’t beat an Uga story as far as I’m concerned.
  • For anyone interested in such things, there is some more information on the Maria Taylor/Nick Saban interview and apology after Taylor appeared on Paul Finebaum’s show. Taylor, as usual, handled herself with professionalism, class, and dignity. And she’s right about the Andy Landers bit. Damn Good Dawg.

It’s the first CBS game of the season. Buy your earplugs early!

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