Good morning, Dawg brothers and sisters. You’ve made it past another mid-week hump and we are another day closer to glory.
Here’s a few tiddly-bits and some newsy notes pertaining to your Georgia Bulldogs and some of our rivals to get you out the door.
The narrative we’ve endured all talkin’ season surrounding our “inexperienced,” yet ultra-talented receiver corps is winding down as we inexorably countdown the clock until Vandy on August 31. One guy who I believe will light things up is Demetris Robertson. Jake Rowe over at 247 Sports has some juicy notes on a trending player that will factor in a big way this season.
The Missourian has a piece from afar on how Jake Fromm and Georgia’s receiver corps is adjusting their brave new world.
Tom Loy wonders if Notre Dame has a
snowball’s chance in hell shot in Athens?
The 2020 schedule is out and has an entirely different look and feel as the Auburn game is moved up, Tennessee and South Carolina are moved back...and Alabama looms large in an early tilt down I-20 west. It is going to take a while to get used to playing Auburn in early October...
...and Seth Emerson over at The Athletic ($$) takes yet another look at the lingering questions surrounding Georgia’s apparent concessions to not only play back-to-back games at Auburn (2012, 2013) while giving up the traditional mid-November meeting, but perhaps receiving nothing in return. Hmmm...maybe we’re not looking at the bigger picture. It’s still going to be a weird schedule change.

With Brenton Cox’s departure, might Georgia be trending for this 4-star?
Some news and notes around the SEC:
- The Tennessee Volunteers took two significant hits on Wednesday, affecting the offensive and defensive lines. You never want to hear about a kid going down with an injury, but it appears that DL Emmit Gooden will miss the entire season with an ACL. Wishing him a speedy recovery.
- Vol offensive lineman Nathan Niehaus, a 6-game starter last season, has left the team at a position where this Tennessee squad could ill-afford any loss of personnel.
- More distractions for Dan Mullen and the Gators as more and more media outlets begin to question just what is going on with Florida’s recent history of players behaving violently towards women. The latest incident involves yet another member of the depleted Gator secondary.
- A very prominent anti-violence activist feels that feels that Dan Mullen “does not get it.”
That’s all I’ve got.
Have a good morning, err’body.
