Your #1 Georgia Bulldogs will be playing at I-Immediately-Regret-This-Corporate-Sponsorship Field™ this evening. They’ll be taking on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets — and some of their fans (at least that I have the misfortune of knowing) appear to be feeling pretty saucy after a victory over Syracuse and getting to go to a bowl game for the first time in quite a while. I guess when the bar is the #404Experience of Waffle House Geoff, pretty much anything feels like a victory. And good for them. Everyone deserves some joy... even if its going to be short-lived.
In all likelihood and with any luck, today’s game is just a bee-shaped speed bump on Georgia’s way to another College Football Playoff appearance. All I really ask is that the Dawgs remind the Jackets of their place in the state’s pecking order... which is somewhere between the GSUs and Kennesaw State. That, and that everyone avoids injury.
It’s time to go to work:
And now your Gameday Morning Dawg Bites:
- Speaking of avoiding injury, we’re going to start things off with the updated injury report. It isn’t as short as I would like, but after this season so far I can live with a bunch of “questionables”, I suppose.
- As usual, we have a number of picks for today’s game. You can check out the individual picks from some of your favorites, but this is basically what you need to know:
