..The Dawgs' brilliant moments outnumbered their mediocre ones. It's just that quite a few of those mediocre moments happened on two specific Saturdays in Jacksonville and Columbia East. Spread out those bad moments, and you go 12-1. Or better.Belk Bowl Study Hall: Georgia 37, Louisville 14.

Heroes have graced the field before you. Men with hearts, bodies and minds for which the entire Bulldog Nation can be justifiably proud. The tradition of unbridled excellence demonstrated by these individuals and many others spans more than a full century. And now a new breed of Bulldawg stands ready to take the field of Battle. To assume the reigns of their Georgia forebearers. To continue that tradition. Understanding that there is no tradition more worthy of envy. No institution worthy of such loyalty as The University of Georgia. As we prepare for another meeting between the hedges let all the Bulldawg faithful rally behind the men who now wear the red and black with two words. Two simple words that express the sentiments of the entire Bulldawg Nation… GO DAWGS!!!-
Coach of the year kind of stuff. That’s what we saw from Georgia’s Mark Fox this season. Yes, Florida went 18-0 in SEC play and the Gators’ are the nation’s No. 1-ranked team. There is no arguing that Billy Donovan will be deserving of that award and any others that will likely come his way. But for good, old fashioned, roll-up-your-sleeves, quality hard work amid difficult circumstances, there are very few coaches anywhere who can claim to have done a better job that than Fox. Only longtime observers of Georgia basketball can probably fully appreciate what his team managed to accomplish this season. Only one Bulldogs’ team in the 81-year history of the school’s association with the Southeastern Conference has won more conference games. The one that did, the 1990 Bulldogs, won the regular-season championship (with a 13-5 record). Just to provide perspective, only five previous teams in the history of the program managed to win 11 or more conference game and one of those had to vacate them due to improprieties.Chip Towers puts the Georgia basketball season in perspective.
Zach Mettenberger was absurdly good on third downs and passing downs. Aaron Murray was absurdly good on first downs and standard downs. I don't even know what else to say, at least without going about 2,000 words. This was just a joyful, fun, incredibly well-played football game. I wish they were all like this. LSU games are rarely beautiful, but this was beautiful.From Bill Connelly. Compare the success rates on passing downs and on standard downs, and you'll understand everything you need to know about this game. Go 'Dawgs!
Fluker is the biggest issue here. His violation supposedly happened in early 2012. If the NCAA finds that he took impermissible benefits, all of the Crimson Tide's wins from the 2012 season, including the BCS national championship, would almost certainly be vacated.Please please please please please. Go 'Dawgs!
"The big thing for me is our secondary," Swinney said. "If I'm sitting in the stands, that's what I'm watching. There are a lot of question marks coming out of last season. "To be fair to those guys, we were very thin going into last season, and then we just get decimated by injuries. But compared to where we were at this time last year, we have nine new pieces - eight signees and Martin Jenkins, who was out all year. So we have nine new guys to work with, out of 15 on scholarship."Dabo Swinney on the Clemson secondary. Go 'Dawgs!
Auburn fans want to beat Mark Richt because he is the head coach at Georgia, and for some unknown reason, Georgia fans think Auburn is their biggest rival and vice versa, despite no provocation.Meanwhile, Nick Fairley just turned a hose on the visitors' section of Jordan-Hare Stadium to commemorate 120 years of a nearly annual rivalry. Go 'Dawgs!
