Thursday Morning Dawg Bites

It’s Auburn week. It’s also “World Kindness Day.” Who schedules these things?

I’m an old-school rocker. I had a nifty little 3-piece band about 22 years ago and, for only 3 dudes - (drums, 1 guitar, 1 bass and a couple of amps), we did okay back in the day. We even got some local love down here in south FLA, which isn’t exactly a rock ‘n roll hotbed, like Atlanta or Austin (or, Athens, naturally). Lots of influences: Zeppelin, Hendrix on up through the Bowie, The Police and even some 90’s bands like the Black Crowes - who are reuniting. What does this have to do with Dawg Bites? Not much, but if we don’t click a little bit more on offense, winning on Saturday might be Twi-i-ice As Hard. Points are going to be at a premium.

Georgia’s Dan Lanning is up for the 2019 Frank Broyles award, honoring the top assistant coach. Georgia is ranked in a whole bunch of top 10’s categorically speaking. Let’s hope they acquit themselves as well on Saturday as they’ve done thus far in ‘19.

Seth Emerson is up to his usual good stuff over at the Athletic ($$), this time talking about George Pickens and how he ended up in Athens.

UGASports Patrick Garbin has an interesting study on Georgia’s sacks-allowed rate.

Allowing only 0.56 sacks per game, Georgia currently ranks second of the 130 FBS teams in sacks allowed, trailing just Air Force’s 0.44 sacks-allowed average (four sacks in nine games). - Patrick Garbin,

A view from the enemy’s point of view. It’s an Auburn-centric article asking whether or not Auburn can run the ball against our run defense.

If the WarTiglesmen are to have success, their offense must improve (sounds familiar).

Georgia is a young team, but has a good group of veterans who are doing what they can to prepare the youth for the trip to hostile Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Tae Crowder, everyone...

Inside linebacker Monty Rice is an Alabama native and looks forward to returning to his home state on Saturday. Light ‘em up, Monty.

Oh please, please, please, puh-leeeeeeeeeze, pretty please...

This morning’s Vegas line has shrunk a bit. Georgia is at -2.5, and the over/under is 41 points. Might this be a game where Rodrigo Blankenship saves the day?

That’s all I’ve got. As Always...I Hate Auburn.
