You’re probably busy submitting your resume for the Tennessee job or submitting your dog’s name for the UCLA opening (he’s got as many PAC-12 titles as Jim Mora and better manners, after all).

But if you have the time and inclination to listen, MaconDawg’s doppleganger will as usual be on WFOY in St. Augustine (102.1 FM/1240 AM) this evening around 7:10 p.m. Eastern to talk Georgia Bulldog football. Topics will include hating Georgia Tech and bashing Paul Johnson in the most decisive terms possible. Anything else covered will be because WFOY’s John Frary managed to drag us off topic.

If you’re on the First Coast or one of those Georgia people up on St. Simons and Jekyll, be sure to listen in. Even if you’re not, you can still join us through the link above. Y’all come on over.

Go ‘Dawgs!!!




Monday Morning ‘Dawg Bites

2017-11-20T07:02:01-05:00

You’ve got a whole lot of clean, old-fashioned hatin’ to do. The last thing I want to do is stand in the way of that. So let’s get right to the news of the day in Bulldog Nation.

As you’re already aware, Florida is in the market for a new head football coach. Multiple reports Sunday night had former Oregon/Philadelphia Eagles/San Fransisco 49ers coach Chip Kelly as all but signed to take the job.

Assuming that’s true, I’m pretty pleased. Kelly will turn 54 this week. He hasn’t coached in the college ranks in five years. The last team he coached finished 2-14, including a titanic 13 game losing streak. He’s known for being mercurial and responding poorly to what he percieves as unfair criticism. And he’s still subject to a show cause order from the NCAA due to shenanigans from his Oregon days. That’s exactly what you want in a coach at Florida.

This sounds like the kind of hire that excites the fanbase, and probably makes some waves in recruiting. But there are a lot of red flags, too. I’d also add that Kelly would need to hire a legit defensive coordinator who doesn’t mind Chip’s offense putting his unit out on the field for long stretches and in bad situations. Again, I’m in for this hire if PAC-12 guy Kelly doesn’t take the UCLA job instead.

What would really be great however would be for Georgia to sign Emmitt Smith’s son. That would be some Conan the Barbarian-level enemy humiliation and I am 100% in for it.

Let’s hear it for the underappreciated Aaron Davis, who finished his Sanford Stadium career on a high note. You gotta love seeing a guy like that succeed.

Georgia’s still looking for replacements for Davis and other graduating defensive backs, and one 4 star Miami cornerback appears to have had a good time in Athens over the weekend.

What else would qualify as a good time? Knocking Tech out of bowl contention. Apparently if we can just run the ball like Duke we’ve got a shot. Yes, that Duke. The one Paul Johnson said gave his team a "pretty thorough butt-kicking." I just hope we beat at least two chins off the guy. Is that too much to ask? Until later......

Bulldogs avoid upset with 68-65 win over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi

2017-11-19T15:37:07-05:00

Georgia watched another big lead evaporate but was able to avoid the upset. Georgia watched another big early lead slip away but were able to make just enough plays down the stretch to escape with a 68-65 win over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Sunday afternoon at Stegeman Coliseum. The Bulldogs began the game with a 17-2 run and held the Islanders scoreless until the 15:08 mark of the first half. Georgia pushed the lead to 27-8 and 30-16 at the break but would have led by much more if not for 14 first half turnovers. The Bulldogs appeared to lose their focus at halftime and the Islanders responded with a 20-6 run to open the second half to tie the game at 36-36 at the 14:29 mark. Georgia answered back with a 9-0 run to go up 45-36 but Texas A&M-Corpus Christi would not go away. A pair of free throws from Tyree Crump put Georgia up 62-57 with 1:17 remaining but Joseph Kilgore knocked down a three on the Islanders’ next possession and cut the lead back to just two. Jordan Harris, playing in his first game of the season, then scored and was fouled on a nifty drive along the baseline to put put the Bulldogs back up by four. He missed the free throw and Kilgore converted at the other end to make it 64-62 with 26 seconds remaining. Georgia turned the ball over under pressure on the inbounds pass giving Corpus Christi the chance to tie the game. Crump fouled freshman Myles Smith on a jump shot but he made just one of two at the line to cut the lead to 64-63 with 13 seconds to go. Rayshaun Hammonds pushed the lead back to three with a pair of free throws at the other end but Smith went coast to coast and cut the lead back to one with just eight seconds remaining on the clock. On the ensuing possession, the Islanders fouled Harris who calmly sank a pair of free throws to push the lead back to three. Kilgore missed a game-tying attempt at the buzzer and Georgia escaped with the win. Yante Maten led the Bulldogs with 19 points and 13 rebounds but was credited with a game-high seven turnovers. Maten was 5-for-8 from the field and a perfect 8-for-8 at the charity stripe. Hammonds added 15 points on 5-for-8 shooting while Derek Ogbeide added eight points and nine rebounds. Kilgore led the Islanders with a game-high 22 points while South added 18 including four made three-pointers. Georgia’s guard play left a lot to be desired in this one. Turtle Jackson finished with three points on 1-of-4 shooting and had four assists and three turnovers but was on the bench down the stretch. Tyree Crump saw a lot of action as the backup point guard and finished with nine points but was just 2-for-10 from the field and 1-for-8 from three-point range. Teshaun Hightower played just three minutes all in the first half. Harris’ debut was a bright spot and he was on the floor during crunchtime and should see more of an opportunity. If you are looking for things to be positive about there were a few. The Bulldogs showed their composure down the stretch for the second straight game and pulled this one out without a big impact from Maten over the game’s final minutes. The Bulldogs were 21-of-29 from the free throw line and a perfect 6-for-6 over the final 1:17 of the game. Still blowing leads to lesser competition is a major concern and 24 turnovers is something that they will be hard pressed to overcome moving forward. Mark Fox is still searching for combinations that work and it doesn’t look like he has settled on anything particularly in the backcourt where there are still a number of question marks. Up next for the Bulldogs is a west coast trip and a Thanksgiving matchup against Cal State Fullerton in the first round of the Wooden Legacy Tournament Thursday night. [...]



Winning Smart Victory Post #23: Senior Salute

2017-11-19T14:00:04-05:00

It is our intention to celebrate Georgia Bulldogs Football Wins whenever and wherever they occur. The ugliness of any particular win is irrelevant for the purposes of the Winning Smart Victory Post.

It is therefore my deepest honor and privilege to bring to you this week’s edition of: Winning Smart Victory Post.

Coach Kirby Smart currently boasts a 18-6 record and a 0.750 winning percentage, having carded his eighteenth win overall over the Kentucky Wildcats. At the identical juncture in their careers:

Vince Dooley’s 22nd game as head coach resulted in a Georgia Bulldog Win over the South Carolina Gamecocks giving Coach Dooley a record of 16-7-1 and 0.688 percentage.

Coach Mark Richt was 19-5 (0.792) after beating the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets during his second season as head coach.

Twenty four games in to his head coaching career Kirby Smart is one game behind Coach Mark Richt and ahead of Coach Vince Dooley by 1 ½ games. He’s holding his own versus two winningest coaches in Georgia Football History.

As always . . .

Bulldogs look for 3-0 start.

Georgia looks to sweep a three-game homestand on Sunday when they host Texas A&M-Corpus Christi at Stegeman Coliseum.

Georgia is 2-0 with a wins over Bryant and USC-Upstate. The Bulldogs blew out Bryant but needed a late run to dispose of the Spartans Tuesday night. Yante Maten and Rayshaun Hammonds scored 16 straight points down the stretch to help avoid the upset.

Maten has been nothing short of fabulous through the first two games averaging 21.5 points and 13 rebounds. Hammonds has proven to be a solid running mate averaging 15 points and 7.0 rebounds while shooting a blistering 72 percent from the field.

Texas A&M Corpus-Christi enters Sunday’s game having lost two straight. After a one point win in the season opener over Our Lady of the Lake, the Islanders fell at Baylor and at home against Texas Rio Grande Valley.

The Islanders have some experience in the backcourt led by Joseph Kilgore who is averaging a team-best 14 points per game.

What was Mark Stoops thinking?

It’s once again time to go spelunking in the cerebral crevices of the coach of the team your Georgia Bulldogs just played. In this case that means Kentucky Wildcats boss Mark Stoops.

This was Stoops’ face after Sony Michel’s third touchdown run of the day, the fifth overall for Bulldog tailbacks. Ladies and gentlemen, what was Mark Stoops thinking?

A) Everybody always wants to talk about Bob. Bob! Bob! Bob!!!

B) They’re going to graduate. They’re going to graduate, and it’s going to get better. They’re going to graduate...

C) I’m still not buying Ryan Reynolds as a superhero.

D) My next contract is going to be 30% bourbon.

As always feel free to suggest your own options in the comments, and ...

Georgia 42, Kentucky 13: One more time for the home folks.

2017-11-18T22:50:03-05:00

Sony Michel and Nick Chubb finished their last game in Sanford Stadium with a bang. On a Senior Day honoring a class that’s seen its share if change in Athens the graduating tailback tandem did essentially what they’ve done since the beginning, combining for five touchdowns in a 42-13 thumping of Kentucky (7-4, 4-4 SEC).

Chubb went over the 1000 yard mark on the season with his 15 carry, 151 yard performance. It marks the third time in his career that the big man from Cedartown has gone over the 1000 yrd mark as a ‘Dawg. Only Herschel Walker had previously accomplished that. Michel scored three touchdowns of his own, including a 37 yard strike lte in the first half to give Georgia some breathing room.

Jake Fromm threw an early interception but ultimately chipped in his usual workmanlike performance, going 9 of 14 for 123 yards, most of them to Javon Wims (6 catches for 81 yards).

The Bulldog defense gave up 94 yards rushing to Wildcat standout Benny Snell, and a couple of deep passes. But that was about it. Georgia surrendered 262 yards of offense, but accumulated 504 of its own, 381 on the ground.

While it was closer in the early running than Bulldog fans would have preferred, and Snell did pull the ‘Cats within a touchdown on the first drive of the second half, this one was largely in hand from the get-go. It wasn’t perfect, but it was a nice step back in the right direction. The Bulldogs (10-1, 7-1 SEC) will be in action next week, traveling to historic Mark Richt Field to take on Georgia Tech. I hate Tech. Until later...
