Welcome to Wednesday of Hate Week, Bulldog fans! We celebrate hating the Gators ‘round these parts and glad you’ve come to revel in that fact. Just by clicking on the link, you’ve confirmed to the NEXUS Hub in Oslo that gators do in fact eat boogers. This is known.
What isn’t certain is who will take snaps at quarterback this Saturday afternoon in Jacksonville. I mean, like, for either team. At any given time. There’s two schools of thought: will not knowing hurt? Or will not knowing not hurt? I looked for the answer from sage philosophers of an age gone by and happened upon this epistemological nugget:
“If you don’t know, it won’t hurt you...
What you don’t know might hurt you”
For more on the study of human’s knowledge of the universe and how this applies to the quarterback situation, please check out the musical number below.
Now onto news and notes of the Georgia Bulldog variety.
On the scheduling front, Georgia’s game against Missouri is now down to three possibilities. And those are dependent on the outcomes of the games this Saturday. You guys seem to hash out the logic better than I could, so have at it.
But we do have specifics on the Georgia/Charleston Southern tilt November 20. Spoiler alert: it’s a nooner, and it’s on SEC+.
On the golfing front, Georgia played in the inaugural The Williams Cup, an intercollegiate golf tourney honoring former UNC and Kansas basketball coach Roy Williams. I haven’t seen a good article, but while host UNC won the team portion, UGA senior and top 15 ranked Trent Phillips of Georgia won the medalist (individual score). It was played at Eagle Pointe, site of the 2017 PGA Tour Wells Fargo Championship, won by Georgia Bulldog golfing alumni Brian Harman. This checks out.
What’s that? You have questions about who will play quarterback for the University of Georgia football team? Okay, okay. I’ll give you this link with the definitive answer (not really, and is this a pay site? It might be a pay site). Which is no answer at all other than both JT Daniels and Stetson Bennett IV will likely play. Bennett has done an admirable job and continues to improve. Daniels has shown tremendous upside, is pushing the limitations placed upon him by the training staff, and also continues to improve. There, you happy?
In a weekly feature, the Red and Black compare the linebacking corps of Saturday’s combatants on the banks of the St. Johns. It isn’t the deepest dive on those units, but my biggest complaint is the phrase “the Gators hunkered down and...”. Honestly you lost me when you combined that noun with that verb.
The College Football Playoff committee is still a month away from releasing...screech. Apparently they are only a week away from releasing the initial rankings, and this does have some bearing on who plays for the mythical national championship. If you’d like to see where some pundits have placed various teams, check out Dawgs247 for their coverage of ESPN et al.
There’s a lot of chatter out there, but nothing too crazy or of too much substance. We all just want toe to meet leather Saturday afternoon and for the Georgia fans on hand to have their cups running over with Gator tears. Let us know what you’re hearing, and as always...
**I will refrain from making any statements concerning the game purportedly created by Abner Doubleday, and that happens to currently feature a compelling underdog story with a team from the Deep South. And another team who cheats. As someone who first saw this compelling team live in 1976 against the Big Red Machine, who suffered along nightly with Ernie Johnson Sr. and Skip Caray and worshipped Dale Murphy, who found a new religion during Bobby Cox’s 2nd time around, who holds 1995 as an indelible memory, who holds a grudge against Eric Gregg, and who really doesn’t know what to do with his hands... you’ll please forgive the omission. I have to live with myself.
