Hello...Dawg Bites Is Back!

New, comments

For the record, we didn’t break up. We just took a seven-month vacation

At times, we weren’t sure if we’d even be in a position to restart Dawg Bites for the 2020 season.

But as the SEC and other conferences appear to be giving it a valiant try to play this fall, we can think of no better time than the present.

During football season, Dawg Bites is a standard feature here on Dawg Sports. If not else, we hope that this gives you a degree of normalcy.

The actual 10-game schedule of SEC opponents leads to the next logical question. Will fans be allowed in Athens and if so, how many?

The SEC has released guidance on just that, and in a nutshell:

Face coverings will be required while entering, exiting and moving about the stadium.

All tickets will be digital

On-campus tailgating and events like the Dawg Walk will be left up to individual schools

Fans being allowed will be up to local health officials...prayers for the phone number of the DPH offices near Athens.

As to how many fans Georgia may allow? Based on CDC advice, that’s around 25 percent, meaning that just a few TGBC donors may not see live games this fall. While Georgia has not announced a formal plan, it may be this week.

The release of guidelines is sadly typical of the last few months. Conferences and the leadership there and above has refused to lead and left most decisions up to schools. There’s a mixed message, and longer that it varies from school to school, the more confusing this try to return to play will be.

In the spirit of Coming To America, Jamaree Salyer is ‘very happy to be here” when it comes to being in Athens.

The QB room in Athens is just a bit different. Here’s photos to prove it.

Georgia’s defense was insanely good last year. Given that logic, it should better this year. That pattern is all well and good, but it means little in the mind of Nakobe Dean.

Some not so good NFL Dawg news for Nick Chubb.

Gentry Estes, one of many esteemed alums of the Red & Black, says that all players deserve a ring if a season happens.

When Larry says Git R Done, you best listen, Big Ten.

Sit down, Bilas and go back to carrying Coach K’s water.

Georgia added a DB to its bevy of commits for the class of 2021 with Baldwin DB Javon Bullard pledging to the Bulldogs.

With a global pandemic and everything else, it really has been a cruel summer...

Go Dawgs!
