Welcome to New Year’s Eve, Bulldog Fans! In case you didn’t know, I spent my formative years in the 80’s (emotional development was thwarted during the same span). As such, I will try to bring you the best** music from this seminal decade that gave us Imodium A-D.
We close out both the 2019 Georgia Bulldogs football season, the year of 2019, and the decade to boot. It was quite a 10 year stretch, especially as it relates to Georgia football. We had 2010 and 2015, but we also had 2012 and 2017. Highs and lows no doubt. So why not take the best of recent memory, forget the philosophy, and let it all hang out. Yes, I’m talking about you, Bulldog passing game. Go ahead, there’s nothing left to lose, so why not break the bonds that constrain you and just lose control.
Now onto news and notes of the Georgia Bulldog variety:
Before we turn to football, I’ll let you know professional golf is about to kick it up again. The new year typically starts in Hawaii with the Tournament of Champions. A 30 man field comprised only of winner from the previous season. And 10% of the field are former Georgia Bulldogs. Kevin Kisner, Keith Mitchell, and Brendon Todd will be playing Thursday through Sunday on Maui. If you miss Dawgs on Tour, you might have to wait for me to finish managing business year-end activities. If you don’t like golf, that’s alright. I’m done for now.
The Bulldogs held practice again Monday, but first spent some time at Oschner Medical Center visiting with patients. Coach Dan Lanning and several defensive players were made available and you can see the Georgia DC’s comments here. It’s 48 hours before a bowl game, and Coach Lanning sticks to the script.
The Athens Banner-Herald takes a look at who could carry the rock for the Bulldogs Wednesday, and interviews the players, especially Zamir White. It wasn’t ever going to be a depressing piece, but I read it and I feel better already.
You’ve probably seen the list(s) of Georgia players who either aren’t playing or didn’t make the trip to New Orleans. Here’s another, but grouped by category.
I like a good bowl preview. I just don’t see them very much. Here’s one I can get behind. There’s just enough research to show they didn’t mail it in, and no sugar-coating nor glossing over obvious warts. I might flip the score, but there’s truth in them thar words.
It’s a slow news day, even though your Georgia Bulldogs are playing in the Sugar Bowl. Gosh, those two thoughts don’t make any sense to me. I’m old, now I’m going to go yell at the neighborhood kids who are on my lawn. I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe New Year’s Eve, and I look forward to starting off a terrific 2020 with the best damn Georgia blog on the interwebs. For the last time this decade, and as always...
