Welcome to Tuesday, 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 where someone restricted personal freedom by requiring the use of seat belts in automobiles by law (oblig: It’s a fact).
I’ll leave it up to the math majors for how long it is until college football starts, or until the Georgia Bulldogs take the field for real-honest-to-by-Gawd-football. As this talking season draws to a close; practice becomes more intense, the NCAA lays low or high the transfer portal entries, every team is undefeated, and everybody wants to rule the world.
(This is a pretty good band and a great song. I make no such promises for future ‘Dawg Bites. In fact, I guarantee it goes downhill from here. And I love the guys grooving in front of the gas pumps. Thank you USA network Night Flight).
Now on to news and notes from the Georgia Bulldog universe:
In the ultimate case of “yeah, we already know that.” , Sports Illustrated came out with the top college mascots for the first 150 years of college football (wayyyyyy too many prepositions.). Editorial: the Duck is too high, no way Cocky gets in the top 10, and I discovered a sudden dislike for Bevo about 8.5 months ago.
In a related article, SI also made a list of the best college towns. I won’t argue with much, but if you poll people from Sheboygan, this is what you get.
The Bulldogs put on pads and had a full scrimmage Between The Hedges Saturday, and resumed practice in pads Monday. Coach Kirby Smart wasn’t necessarily satisfied. Forget that, this is supposed to be a news piece.
In Monday’s drills, stalwart defensive end David Marshall left the field with the help of trainers.
Between that article and this from the Banner Herald, you should have absolutely no idea who is in the first 22. YMMV.
Starting guard on the offensive line may be something of a battle. I didn’t expect Cade Mays to usurp Ben Cleveland, but this isn’t the first writer who has mentioned them splitting time with the 1’s.
Did you know verbatim the top 25 most annoying things about college football? Turns out I didn’t either. Color me surprised that Uncle Verne didn’t make the list. Recency bias, y’all.
And since saving mouse movement is more important than continuity, we have some more NFL news. Go forth, young man. You got a ring, now go out and earn another one. (Pssst. Get traded to Detroit and earn one with Stafford. That would be much, much, much better).
More to come throughout the day, with opponent previews and Bulldog spotlights. Thanks for reading, and as always...
