Welcome to Sunday, Bulldog Fans! It’s like Saturday, in that it doesn’t include SEC Football. But that is soon to change, as this is the purported last Sunday without Georgia football for several weeks. So take solace, and know that we are close. Close to football, close to you:
Now onto news and notes of the Georgia Football variety:
Have we put this out there yet? I feel like we might have. It cannot be put out there enough.
Georgia faces the Arkansas Razorbacks this Saturday in Fayetteville. The Hogs, led by former Arkansas and UGA O-line coach Sam Pittman, haven’t emerged on the right side of an SEC tilt in 19 tries. But said Head Hawg Pittman is looking for the small victories, no matter the scoreboard.
Hey, at least we didn’t lose to UCF.
You know from Saturday’s Dawg Bites that George Pickens has been vocalizing the right words in front of the microphone. And we all know he walks the walk, sometimes he walls the wall. But he has teammates who also say the right things. I especially like the opening quote of (paraphrasing) “I’m not going to compare Chaney to Monken”. I also like tha the tight ends continue to contribute to the team effort - run block, pass block, whatever it takes.
While the team was practicing and scrimmaging, Kirby Smart was burning up the fax lines. For the class of 2023 (counts on fingers), UGA offered a scholarship to quarterback Dylan Lonergan of Booker HS in Snellville. The 6’1” signal caller also has offers from LSU, Auburn, and SC. A two-sport quarterback from Snellville? Yes, please, and pass the biscuits.
Not to mention offering a 6’5” tight end for the class of 2022 (folds down one finger) in the form of Oscar Delp. Is he from the State of Georgia? Check. Has he been leaning towards the Big 10 or ACC schools? Check. Will Kirby Smart find a place for him if for nothing other than to thumb his nose at Jim Harbaugh? Stay tuned.
In Women’s Golf, Caterina Don captured the GCAA Amateur last week at Rivermont GC in Alpharetta, setting herself up for the limited upcoming fall season. Georgia was well represented, as Alison Crenshaw tied for 2nd and Celeste Dao finished 6th.
After leading for a short period Thursday morning, amateur and current UGA student Davis Thompson missed the cut at the US Open, along with former Bulldogs Kevin Kisner and Greyson Sigg. But Harris English has never left the front page of the leaderboard (5 shots back entering the final round), and Bubba Watson and Brendon Todd are hanging in there tied for 21st place.
It’s a light day for news, so feel free to add your own in the comments below. It’s the first day of game week folks, don’t take this lightly. Light it up, and as always...
