As we wait to see Russ’ replacement, here’s a lengthy New York Times piece (h/t Jim Galloway) on whether the bulldog breed should be modified to make it healthier.  You know who is front and center in the story: In the first half of Georgia’s football game against South Carolina in 2009, Uga VII, who had been dozing on a bag of ice in his air-conditioned sideline doghouse, was cajoled onto the field to pose for pictures with some cheerleaders and Gov. Sonny Perdue. Uga (pronounced UGH-uh) wore his trademark red Georgia jersey and spiked red leather collar, and he looked bored as an ESPN cameraman shoved a camera in his wrinkly, smooshed bulldog face. And here’s something I’ll bet you didn’t know. The food also boasts “highly digestible proteins,” because bulldogs are the most relentless farters in the canine world. GATA, indeed.

Georgia Bulldogs: Aaron Murray is "Pumped" to Play Georgia Tech

Two things scare me whenever Georgia faces off against Tech, 1) the ability of the Georgia defense to defend the option, and 2) coach Bobo's ability to game plan effectively.

Georgia mourns the voice of the Dogs, Larry Munson

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By PAUL NEWBERRY AP Sports Writer When Larry Munson first arrived at Georgia in 1966, he showed no signs of the trait that would make him as beloved as the coaches and players he described for millions of radio listeners. Sure, he had that gravelly voice. But, no, he didn't wear his red-and-black heart on his sleeve. It took time to develop that love...

Oh, and about that whole “looking ahead” thing…

that Georgia Tech fans will use to convince themselves that a Georgia team which has won nine of the last ten games in the series won’t be taking the Jackets seriously, here’s a little note from the Kentucky game. Richt said sophomore nose Kwame Geathers (ankle) was held out Saturday but could have played in an emergency. This week’s the emergency. Filed under: Georgia Football...

Some Thoughts on the Passing Of Larry Munson

By the time I arrived in Athens, Georgia in 1994, Larry Munson was already 72 years old and well-ensconced as the "Voice of the Georgia Bulldogs."  Almost everyone I knew in Athens loved him.  I did not.  I could not understand how they could like this play-by-play announcer who was a clear "homer".  How could they love this true curmudgeon?  How could they...
