Thursday Morning Dawg ‘Bites – Dawg Sports
Greetings from the Broward Marshes, everyone. I trust those of you who follow the Braves who were immersed in the cycle of late start / end games were able to get back to some normalcy last night when it comes to your sleep and, maybe. , your diet and your “school night” drink routine. . I loved the NLCS and the World Series. Absoutely. But it was starting to take its toll. I stopped being a spring chicken a long, long time ago.
I watched Dan Mullen’s show yesterday, which I rarely do, as I find this particular broadcast brand clearly violates FCC laws for offensive content. There were very few highlights from Gator’s perspective, although they did show a few clips of our big pieces because, well, the producers needed something to air. It’s such a joy when we win in a given year, but avenging the loss of a previous year makes it even more enjoyable. Ms. DavetheDawg noted that Steve, our neighbor Gator across the street, was not out of his residence all weekend. Maybe I should go see him, but he’s a pretty rabid Gator who probably feels the same way most Gator Nations do when it comes to running the program. When I see him, I won’t offer any condolences, but I will give him a Georgia T-shirt.
There’s a lot going on this Saturday between the hurdles besides a key SEC clash with Mizzou. Mark Richt will be honored at the game, which seems fair right now. This man was the perfect hire at the time and we owe him a lot.
The ESPN broadcast team is ready for our 12pm kickoff, with Joe Tessitore and Greg McElroy in the broadcast booth while Katie George sits on the sidelines. I was hoping Matt Stinchcomb would be on the call, but he’s probably going to be grappling with another game at Vandy. Luckily for Matt, Vandy has a week off.
This Mizzou writer isn’t very optimistic about his chances on our sister site SB Nation, Rock M Nation. Their analysis gave Georgia a 95% chance of winning. Listen, I’m not a statistician even though I did a solid B back to college when I took it even though my teacher didn’t speak a little English. But I can tell you with great certainty that 95% of everything is a lot.
Staying with Rock M Nation for a second, this writer does a good job analyzing some of the issues facing young but talented Missouri quarterback Conner Bazelak.
Kirby Smart has invited Atlanta Braves mascot (and others), Blooper, to attend Saturday’s game.

Are Georgia playing the wrong quarterback?
“At this point, Smart could do more damage to his team’s chemistry by replacing Bennett with Daniels, unless Bennett is playing poorly. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it. -Marc Schlabach, ESPN.
This will be debated until JT Daniels returns to the lineup and I have no doubt that he will at some point – whenever and wherever. Until then, we’re rolling with The Mailman.
Hope you all have a good Thursday. I hope Friday is payday. Hopefully on Saturday we whip Missouri as planned and no one on both sides gets hurt.
