The Dawgs head into their bye week ranked number one in the country with a 7-0 record. The bye week comes at a great time, as Georgia looks to get healthy before a stretch run that includes Florida and Tennessee.
Though it is a thin slate of games this week, let’s still take a look around the league to see who is making headlines.
Here’s what’s happening around the SEC:
- LSU head coach Ed Orgeron will “step aside” at the end of the season. Coach O will still receive his buyout, which is over $16 million.
- Four-star linebacker Shemar James has decommitted from Florida. Will he be a Georgia flip? Stay tuned.
- The nation’s number one ranked wide receiver, Luther Burden, elected to stay in his home area and committed to Missouri. There is something to be said about a kid wanting to stay home to play football, and we wish Burden all the best for his future.
- Tennessee has been hit with a $250,000 fine for its fans’ antics on Saturday in their loss to Ole Miss. At least a great SEC Shorts skit has come from these events.
- South Carolina quarterback Luke Doty will undergo surgery for his injured foot and will miss the year. We wish Doty a speedy recovery.
- Eli Manning will have his #10 retired this weekend when Ole Miss hosts LSU. Ole Miss has elected to paint “Manning” in the end zones for the game. This has something to do with Eli Manning’s jersey being retired, but likely even more to do with Eli’s nephew, 2023 #1 recruit Arch Manning, taking a visit to Oxford for this game.
We don’t want no cats. We want some dogs! GO DAWGS!!!
