Good morning, fellow Dawgs. Kirby Smart apologized for his language Monday, so in a show of unity with our fearless leader, we’re starting out this morning focused on the righteous path.
The latest College Football Playoff rankings were released last night, and your Georgia Bulldogs remain the #4 team in the country. Much to the chagrin of many out West, the committee’s top 7 teams remain unchanged.
Fans from Tuscaloosa to Eugene remain incensed by Georgia’s inclusion in the Top 4. I highly suggest these angry tweets from people across our great nation who can’t stand the fact Georgia could be playoff bound. Enjoy!
Kirby Smart has done a good job with roster management of late, adding key WR Lawerence Cager on the transfer market last offseason. In what appears to be another wise roster move, it looks like the Dawgs will be redshirting versatile defensive lineman Julian Rochester. Rochester had off-season knee surgery prior to the season, and has only played in two games to this point. This move helps the Dawgs d-line depth for 2020 as Michael Barnett, Tyler Clark and David Marshall graduate at the end of this season.
Georgia’s Men’s Basketball team has its first big test of the season tonight as the hated Yellow Jackets come to The Steg. Both teams are undefeated, and the audience will look a bit different than it has in past seasons as representatives from 20 different NBA franchises are planning to be in attendance. This will be most of the nation’s first look at Anthony Edwards in a UGA uniform, and the scouts might be in for a treat as Coach Crean has said he wants Ant Man to be on the attack this evening. The game is on SEC Network and tips off at 7:00 PM. Here’s hoping the Dawgs swat the nerds back to North Avenue.
Let’s end this morning with some good news...
We all held our breath at the end of the first half on Saturday when UGA photographer Chamberlain Smith got caught in a nasty collision on the sideline. Not only has Chamberlain bounced back from the frightening blow, but she also got a perfectly in focus shot right before it happened.
As macondawg first suggested, Peabody award nomination, anyone? We’re glad Chamberlain is on the mend, and I can’t wait to see what type of work she creates in the future. DGD!
We’ll be back with more throughout the day. Wreck Tech!
