Thursday Dawg Bites Hopes For No Thursday Games

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: NOV 09 Missouri at Georgia Photo by David John Griffin/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

Without question, this could be the final college football season before a whole lot of moving and shaking. Will rivalries exist as they once did? Will Georgia actually play at College Station? Does Florida continue to claim it is closing the gap? Will Corey Smith do a yearly update of “Every Dawg?”

Who knows.

Hopefully, one thing that does not change is the TV dollar compelling ESPN to force a Thursday night game in Athens.

Until then, here is Thursday Dawg Bites!

Between Kamari Lassiter, Javon Bullard, and Tykee Smith, there’s a mix of experience and talent in Georgia’s defensive secondary. But there’ll be one new starter, and a new face to keep an eye on is Julian Humphrey, who according to the Banner-Herald has had a ‘good camp’ in the eyes of head coach Kirby Smart.

One of the biggest feel-good stories, even if you casually follow the NFL, is at the end of training camp when a rookie who signed as a free agent finds out he makes the team’s 53-man roster.

Kearis Jackson, whose camp with the Titans has included a 26-yard touchdown, did enough to start the year on Tennessee’s roster.

If you want to know how high Jackson was and is thought of by Georgia’s current roster, look no further than the reaction from the news being announced to the team this week.

Speaking of feel-good stories, a former walk-on from Blackshear, Ga., that you may have heard of is QB2 for the Rams.

Shoutout to whoever once said, “may you live in interesting times...”

Georgia and Saturday’s opponent, UT Martin, may seem as alike as oil and water, but there is at least one tie-in: Georgia assistant Tray Scott’s coaching foundation was built from his time with the Skyhawks.

Go Dawgs!
