Early List of Candidates to Replace Greg McGarity

Early List of Candidates to Replace Greg McGarity

Photo by John Greim/LightRocket via With the news that University of Georgia AD Greg McGarity will be stepping down after ten years on the job, speculation has already turned to who might replace him as the head of one of the nation’s largest and most successful collegiate athletic operations. The job is a tough one, but it’s certainly also prestigious. McGarity’s contract, which was just extended in June, pays $700,000 per year plus certain longevity bonuses. That sounds generous, but it’s actually in the bottom third of SEC Athletic Directors. That salary...

The Battle Hymnal UGA vs USC Review: How The Damn Ball Was Run

Photo by Tony Walsh/Collegiate Images/ On a night where Mike Bobo was on the opposite sideline, Georgia exorcised some bad Gamecock juju and ran the damn ball. The result was our first look at what Todd Monken’s offense looks like when a defense has to account for the pass and the run, and it turns out that it’s pretty fun to watch. It was also pretty fun to breakdown. On this episode of The Battle Hymnal... Something kinda weird is happening with our sound, but we promise we sound smarter in person Josh and Graham’s takeaway plays Kearis bounces back Arian...

Monday Dawg Bites: Return of the Stache?

Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports Good morning. More to come pic.twitter.com/YpwQ3XPlBC— JT Daniels (@jtdaniels06) November 29, 2020 The above was posted on the Twitter account of JT Daniels Sunday afternoon, sparking all sorts of speculation on Twitter, message boards and the UGA dark web. Is it a cryptic message that Daniels plans to return to Athens in 2021? Maybe. Some posters out there have sworn that Daniels told their brother’s wife’s sister’s friend’s cousin that he is coming back to the Classic City in 2021. She also said she saw Ferris pass out at...

15 Thoughts Had Peers into the Future

15 Thoughts Had Peers into the Future

Tre McKitty sets the scoring tone for the night Chop a chicken chop a chicken ring their scrawny necks! A quarterback has been found. A running game has been rediscovered. A vertical passing game with skill and speed is evolving. 1. This game wasn’t so much about “revenge” as it was about taking the offensive momentum we displayed (at least, in the passing game) last Saturday and building upon it while fixing some things that needed fixing. Revenge alone never works. Solid execution does and the run game was so efficient we didn’t need to throw the ball...

How Georgia met the keys to a win

How Georgia met the keys to a win

Photo by Tony Walsh/Collegiate Images/ By and large, it was a good win for the Dawgs on Saturday night at USC, a place that’s had its challenges, even in victory. Here’s how Georgia met the keys to a win. Press and press often. Coming off last week, Georgia is confident it can pass, and the Gamecocks are depleted in the secondary. JT Daniels and company need to test the edge deep early and often. Georgia did this offensively not just through the air, but on the ground as well. The Gamecocks were depleted, and what Georgia set out to do and executed showed. Get well...

Winning Smart Victory Post #50 - Milestone Achievement Edition

Photo by Tony Walsh/Collegiate Images/ In anniversaries, birthdays and such things, 50 is generally considered a big milestone. We could call this the over the hill edition, but CKS is roughly my age so I’m not going there. Last night your Classic City Canines handily defeated the South Carolina Gamecocks in spite of their efforts to upgrade at the Head Coach position by removing former Georgia player & coach Will Muschamp and installing former Georgia player & coach Mike Bobo. It is our intention to celebrate Georgia Bulldog Football Wins whenever and wherever they...

Take Two: Bulldogs look to open season against FAMU

Take Two: Bulldogs look to open season against FAMU

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports Let’s try this again. After having Wednesday’s season opener against Columbus State cancelled due to COVID-19 issues among the visitors, Tom Crean’s team will (we think) begin play this afternoon at 2:00 at Stegeman Coliseum against the Florida A&M Rattlers. The Rattlers finished 12-15 last season, and a respectable 10-6 in the MEAC. But that record included a nine game losing streak to start the season against the likes of Tennessee, USC, and Seton Hall, before eventually catching Iowa State for an upset win. This FAMU...

MVDs: South Carolina Edition

Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports You don’t waltz into Columbia, South Carolina, the werewolf capital of the South, and secure a convincing victory over SEC coaching legend Mike Bobo without some players stepping up. Those intrepid souls are your MVDs, the Most Valuable ‘Dawgs from Kirby Smart’s 50th victory at the helm of the Georgia Bulldogs. Offense: James Cook. Cook finished with 104 yards on 6 carries but could have run for 200 yards if he’d been allowed to. A lot of that was the offensive line that got a solid push against the Gamecocks from start to finish....

Georgia 45, South Carolina 16: They Ran The Dang Ball, Bobo!

Photo by Tony Walsh/Collegiate Images/ Nothing good ever happens in Columbia, South Carolina after dark. Mike Bobo learned that once again tonight as the Gamecocks did a few things right but rarely consistently, and Georgia rediscovered its running game on the way to a convincing road victory. A host of Bulldog backs combined to grind out over 300 yards on the ground for the first time this season. James Cook’s 6 carries for 104 yards headlined the effort, but four separate UGA rushers went over the 75 yard mark. That helped make up for a Red and Black passing game...

Third Quarter Open Thread: Cue Blandstorm.

Third Quarter Open Thread: Cue Blandstorm.

Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports Sandstorm in a 25% full stadium is even sadder.— Dawg Sports (@dawgsports) November 29, 2020 The Bulldogs decided to run the dang ball in the first half in Columbia, and so far it’s proven pretty productive. The UGA offense churned out 208 yards on the ground in the first half to stake the Red and Black to a 28-10 halftime lead. Defensively things have been a little suspect, with some poor tackling extending Gamecock drives. Mike Bobo’s charges managed 156 yards offensively, following the traditional Bobo playbook of running the...

First Quarter Open Thread: Drag Me To Columbia

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports The JT Daniels show hits the road to the absolute worst venue in the SEC. Columbia is a horrible place where the lucky survive. No one and no thing ever truly thrives there. To that end, I’m looking for the Bulldogs to escape without making any killer mistakes or suffering any horrendous injuries. Everything else is just gravy. https://t.co/puqNd8RgGx pic.twitter.com/zFilWRqpsw— Dawg Sports (@dawgsports) November 27, 2020 The UGA passing attack should be able to complete some shots on a depleted Gamecock secondary.

The Bulldogs are heading to the giant heat conducting tin cup in a field known as Williams-Brice Stadium and you’re decorating your Christmas trees. A lot about 2020 is weird, but nothing could be weirder than zero cases of heat exhaustion at a UGA vs South Carolina game. Nonetheless, here we are. We here at DawgSports are continuing to pick games at a clip that would allow us to make a good living in Vegas, and we are all pretty sure that RedCrake has been feeding Danny Sheridan tips for a few extra...

The Battle Hymnal took Thanksgiving off too, so we recorded a day later than usual this week. We might have been 24 hours behind, but we still have plenty of good factoids for you to chew on with your leftovers as you get ready for the Dawgs and Gamecocks.

Season 5 Volume 8 South Carolina

Season 5 Volume 8 South Carolina

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports The crazy year that is 2020 continues as the Dawgs rush for under 10 yards and pass for more than 400. JT Daniels In Review Outstanding. What really impressed me most was how he subtlety evaded pressure while keeping his eyes down field. He also seemed to have tremendous chemistry with receivers he hasn’t had many reps with. He showed arm talent, elusiveness and the ability to throw 3 TDs on one drive (just needed some help from receivers before finally converting a 3rd and 20 for a TD). So that’s the good, from a our passing...
