There’s a lot going on in Bulldog Nation these days, so to help you keep up we’re bringing back our morning ‘Dawg Bites. Bunker down with a cup of coffee and enjoy.
Way too early betting lines are out for some 2019 college football contests, including Georgia as a nearly two touchdown favorite over Notre Dame in Athens. That seems a little high to me at first blush unless Ty Willingham is back in South Bend.
As the ‘Dawgs Open preparations for 2019 they’re missing a handful of players recovering from injury, including three guys on the defensive line. One name to keep an eye on up front? Sophomore and JUCO transfer Tramel Walthour. The former Liberty County standout is athletic and looks to have grown into his frame since high school. Even in a veteran unit he may be in line for some playing time in 2019 before contending for a starting role in 2020.
Jake Fromm enters 2019 as the undisputed starter at the quarterback position for the first time in his career. I’m interested to see what he does when not having to look over his shoulder, as well as how he throws the ball this spring without a treble hook hanging out of his thigh.
In “it’s getting dusty in here news”, Southern University player Devon Gales, who saw his life changed forever when he collided with Marshall Morgan in 2015, will be coaching next season at Jefferson High outside Athens.
Away from the football field the Gym Dogs have earned a #3 seed for this weekend’s SEC gymnastics tournament. Coach Carter’s squad has really persevered this season and appears to be peaking at a good time.
That should get you started as you attack the day. Until later....
