So unless the whole internet crashes today (it's 12:08 AM as of this writing), The Dawg-gone Blog will receive it's 10,000th hit sometime within the next 24 hours.

Granted, this doesn't garner near as many hits as other great blogs (see: All of the other ones you read that are better than mine), and probably 2,000 of those are from moi trying to see if there are any new comments, BUT 10,000 hits is 10,000 fucking hits damn it.

So thanks. I love doing this and the newness hasn't worn off and I doubt it will.

Look for some changes in the upcoming year.

Thanks again. Really, I mean it.

Until next time kids.

Be safe.

A friend at work forwarded this to me. Thought it was worth a post...

T'was the night before New Years, and all thru Knoxville, Not a creature was stirring, everything was still.

All the bowl games were scheduled by the networks with care, The Tennessee Vols just wouldn't be there.

The loyal fans were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of losing seasons danced in their heads .

And Sis in her nighty, and I in my cap, Had just settled down for a long winters nap....

When out on the farm there arose such a clatter ,I sprang from my trailer to see what was the matter.

Away to the window I flew like a flash, And opened the blinds as I stepped thru the trash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow, Gave the luster of orange to objects below.

When what to my wandering eyes should appear, But a huge John Deere tractor, and eight big old boy-steers.

With a big gutted driver folks wanted to kill ,I knew in an instant it must be Fat Phil .

Slower than snails his ball players they came, And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name: Now Clausen, Now Foster, Now Meachem and Swain! On Wilhoit, On Taylor, On Colquitt and Ainge!

To the NCAA I heard the man call.......Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof ,A shaking so violent it rattled my tooth.

As I rubbed on my jaw, and was turning around ,Down the Chimney Fat Phil came with a hound.

He was dressed all in orange from his head to his foot, With marks on his butt from the whoopins he'd took!

A sack of fresh donuts he had slung on his back ,He huffed and he puffed as he ate up his snack.

He had a fat face, and a great big fat belly, That shook when he laughed like a bowl full of jelly,

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf. Teams laughed when they saw him in spite of themselves.

A wink of his eye and a twist of his head, let other teams know they had nothing to dread.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, Ate the rest of the donuts, then turned with a jerk,

And sticking his finger up inside of his nose, And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.

He sprang to his tractor, to his team gave a call, Fourth and ten, let's run up the middle you all.

But I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight, Good luck to the Dawgs, Tigers and Gators on this New Year's night!!


Y'all have a great next couple of days. I'll be in the metropolis of Perry and most likely will have a Christmas Eve post because I tend to write on those kind of days.

Until next time kids.

Be safe.

This is the first in a two part blog about next season's progress. Today is offense. I'll do defense sometime in the near future.

Welcome back UGA. I haven't blogged about you in so long I feel like as I type this, I'm holding a sign at the airport, waiting for you to jump in the car. Right now, I haven't seen college football in the better part of two full weeks, the NFL is all over the TV and, and all I can think is that I get to see D.J. Shockley (by far, the best feel-good story since I became a Dawg fan) play one more game.

So today I thought I would write a post about the future of Bulldog Football at UGA. I got to thinking about this after I met a couple of dumbasses at a Christmas party last night who ran a two-man company that made the connections for high school students to college coaches. What exactly that meant, I don't know. All I know is that they couldn't hold a candle to me when we got to discussing recruiting classes, the guys that have the talent and where they're going....and I was drunk.

So, sham masters aside, I have kicked around '06 in my head pretty regularly since our second SEC Championship in five years under the Mark Richt era. I figured since I had a little bit of time, an inclination to write, and nothing better to write about, I'd discuss the future guys we have and the ones coming in. Mainly, I'll be discussing what we need help with and where we need it.

Before I start, the AJC posted an article about Mark Richt and Damon Evans meeting soon to discuss Richt's contract. Again, for the millionth time, Richt is not going anywhere. Don't send me a message or call me asking if I've heard anything about it. The man loves UGA; he isn't leaving.

So, here's where we're at...

Offensive Line: I think we're going to hurt here. We've spent the last two recruiting seasons picking up OL commitments but the problem lies in the experience they have. As far as I can tell, we're *thankfully* not going to have the same line problems that we had in 2003, but we still will have a lot of inexperience. I think Neil Callaway needs to get more discipline in the guys he has on the field, because on paper we arguably had the best OL this year, but kept making mental mistakes all season long. We all know Max Jean is gone, so are Dennis Roland, Russ Tanner, and Ryan Schnetzner. Dan Inman is a variable because he has racked up ridiculous amounts of awards throughout the season, but no one is speaking about him jumping early into the draft. We have quality guys like Zeb McKinzey who was a gigantic recruit but hasn't played up to his potential at all. My guess is all the Jrs. on the OL stay and we come back with some good guys with decent experience. We have recruited a nice class of OL as well and with some good coaching, they'll be ready in the next year or two to make a difference. I think B-.

Running Backs: Everyone's coming back. The only variable here is that I would expect to see more of two back sets or even the wishbone next year. I know Richt has adamantly said he is not going to use it, but I think with such a killer FB in Brannan Southerland and our three talented backs, the wishbone could give defenses fits next year. I don't want to overcomplicate the system, but still. All in all, we'll be fine and we'll run a basic put-it-down-your-throat rushing attack that will not be as effective as this year (which really wasn't that effective at all), due to a less experienced OL. I do expect to see Kregg pick up next year where he'll leave off this year and challenge for a starting spot. I believe he's the most talented of all the backs as far as vision, power, and speed. I think A-.

Tight Ends: Pope is gone. I know this because UGA picked up a GIGANTIC TE commitment last week when Richt ran out to California and grabbed NaDerris Ward, who will challenge for time in two TE set. He has already qualified academically, which means he won't be like Pope and waste a year trying to get into school. We'll still have Martrez Milner who showed a lot of promise and heart to be effective when we all knew people were going to double team Pope because "D.J. needed Pope in order to get his confidence up and no one else could catch the ball." Damn pundits. Anyway, we'll be fine at TE. I'll miss Pope and his strength, but we'll be ok. I think B+.

Wide Receiver: Mo Friggin' Mass. Our newest star will lead a ton of new recruits and some seasoned veterans onto the field next year. Combine Mo Mass with Sean Bailey and Martrez Milner, you've got a lethal combination for a passing attack. What should be even better is the added installment of RBs that can catch like Lumpkin and Ware, AND guys like A.J. Bryant (can we please give A.J. something other than a damn screen...THROW the ball to him) who I believe are just waiting for a chance to prove themselves. All in all, I think we'll be decent here. I'll give us a B.

Quarterback: Well isn't this just the talk of the town. The AJC is pumping Matt Stafford like he is the Lebron of high school quarterbacks. The real problem here is the fine stable of QBs we already have. I mean Joe Cox is the truth. Trust me, this kid's prior experience makes him very very very crucial to our team's system (he's a bit slower than D.J., but is still quite mobile) and he played his HS ball at Independence which means he and Mo Mass have that thing called "chemistry." Couple that with Joe T. III's experience in the system, and you have two quarterbacks that deserve nods over a freshman who hasn't proved anything in college. Don't get me wrong, a ton of talented QBs is not a problem...until one of them leaves. We got lucky with D.J. staying but in this age of "me first," not everyone is going to stay. For the purposes of this discussion, we won't mention Blake Barnes, who I think will never start a snap of football at UGA. For some unknown reason, Richt is not high on him. My ideal situation is that Stafford redshirts like Cox has this past year, Cox starts, Joe T. III backs him up, and Barnes calls in plays with the headset. Who knows what will happen in '07, but right now, let's just take this one season at a time. With lack of starting experience throughout the whole stable, I'm guessing a B.

Well there's your offensive breakdown. Rosters and recruiting analysis have been provided by

Until next time kids.

Best team name for trivia last night didn't go to us...actually, it didn't go to anyone since the Trivia Mastur--bator Art doesn't give that prize.

It went to this name:

"My wife is a midget and I'm nuts over her."


Until next time kids.

Be safe.

Not any one of the ones we came up with at trivia.

I mean we got our asses kicked. But hey, we had a helluva time, I think Stacy G. actually got drunk, Russ wore a scarf on his head, Rob developed a points system, and Art (the trivia mastur---bator) sucked ass again which kept him batting 1.000 since we started playing.

In other news, I was delighted to get home and see that I had a message on AIM. It went a little something like this...


Nice. You're probably the same douchebag that keeps commenting annonymously on the blogs. I don't necessarily like liberals and I'm damn sure not a supporter of Gator fans, but I HATE cowards. I mean I hate them with a passion. Please understand that you're not getting under my skin, you're just proving yourself to be weak, scared, and self concious. If you have a problem with me, say it openly. I won't delete it, I swear. Hell, if you want to even go one on one with the Notorious One, you're more than welcome to do so. We'll sell tickets and make some $$$ in the process.

That being said, I'm going to hit the sack. My quota for no-talent-ass-clowns has been reached for the evening.

Until next time kids.

Be safe.

Here are some random thoughts since I don't have enough going through my mind right now to put together an entire blog.

1. Man I was drunk at the company Xmas party on Saturday.

2. Stacy was too.

3. Here's a picture:

Stacy Kit

4. I don't sleep enough during the week.

5. I don't like coffee, but I need it to wake up in the morning.

6. I hate Oubre for losing all that weight. Actually, I'm really proud of him, but damn it, I'm jealous.

7. I had a bloomin' onion yesterday and it was AWESOME.

8. I want an iPod and an XBOX 360, but I can't think of a practical use for either.

9. Jonathan is a dirty whore.

10. So is your mom.

11. I couldn't stop at 10 because it seemed so cliche.

Until next time kids.

Be safe.

Since I'm in the "self proclaimed funk" I thought I'd do something funny, abrasive, and disrespectful.

By the way, I'm not dying people, I'm just in a week-long bad mood. I appreciate your love, I really do, but no need to call the dogs out looking for me. I'm fine. Just pissy.

Anyway, so in an attempt to let out some of the frustration, I decided to so something I haven't done in a long time, which is basically to flash back to my college days when I said what I wanted to who I wanted and who gives a damn who gets pissed off in the process?

So, here's my little quiz:


Please answer all these questions honestly:

1. Do you say...
a. Go Dawgs.

Motley Crue:

b. Tommy Lee is the whole show.
c. No talent ass clowns.

Ok, now it's time to tally up your totals:

In order, the point totals for the different questions.

a = 0
b = 1
c = 2
d = auto douchebag

a = 2
b = 1
c = 3
d = 0

a = 5
b = 0
* = if you drummed any part of this song: auto douchbag...even "Take on Me"

a = 1
b = 2
c = 0
d = 3

a = 2
b = 1
c = 3
d = 0

a = 3
b = 1
c = 2
d = 0

a = 1
b = 0
c = 0
d = 0
e = Liar.....and auto douchebag.

a = auto douchebag
b = 0

a = 1
b = 2
c = -3

a = 3
b = 2
c = 1
d = 0

a = 5
b = 2
c = -5
d = -2

Now talley them up kids...

Here's your legend:

1-10 : Congrats, you are not a douchebag, but just a regular person with a good head on your shoulders.

11 - 20 : You're getting there. I'd be careful about your next few moves. You might just find yourself bordering being the person everyone hates...behind your back of course.

21 - 30 : You're a douchebag. Everyone knows it and if you disagree with me, you're kidding yourself. Hell you knew you were one before you started taking this quiz. Why in the hell would you punish yourself like that?

Ah. All in a days work.

Oh lighten up. You're not REALLY douchebag. You're just as bored as I was when I made this shit up. At least you had fun.

Until next time kids.

Be safe.

P.S. -- I got a 2. The Bonus saved me b/c I HATE THE CRUE. What'd you get?

On the new post.

I'm in kind of a funk right now. Not the kind that will make me stop blogging completely, contrary to certain other bloggers' beliefs (secretly, people think the blogging craze is over...damn, guess it ain't secret anymore), but something that just doesn't make me want to type that much lately.

Eh, it'll pass. Everyone gets in funks and gets out all the time.

Cheer the hell up! It's the Chri-mas Season!

Until next time kids.

Be safe.

By the way, if you're under the age of 18, quit reading now...

Anyway, I'll be the first to say "I TOLD YOU SO MOTHER FUCKERS!!!!"

Let's take a look back and see what all I said in the "pre-game post"...

1. In my honest opinion, I think we win Saturday and I think we do it convincingly. I think UGA finally says "Don't ever count us out before the season begins. You media pundits should know better."

2. I also think I'll be sickened for about a good two hours watching feel good LSU bullshit stories about Hurricane Katrina.

3. If we win we'll hear, "We'll this is a moral victory for the Tigers by making it this far into the season after Hurricane Katrina AND a new coach."

Well, we almost heard #3 verbatim from the always enthusiastic Vern Lundquist. That little tubby bastard has a hard on for anyone that is NOT UGA. At least Todd Blacklidge got it correctly. He predicted us to win in that article that I posted earlier.

All in all, NEVER DOUBT ME AGAIN. I'll be back sometime Sunday or Monday to do a season wrap-up and just take a look back at the highs and lows of this historical UGA football team. And when I mean historical, I'm serious. These guys had nothing but a dream and ended up winning the whole damn conference.

It's a damn good day to be a Damn Good Dawg.

Until next time kids.

Be safe.

Let me start by saying that if you're not fired up by now, you have no soul and no heartbeat.

As of this moment, I have never missed being a Redcoat than I have these past few days. I have all of this energy to cuss, scream, and cheer and I have no way to channel it in a manner that is equivalent to my old Redcoat days. Damn it.

Anyway, taken straight from (by the way, PWD has a great blog up right now about Bloggers stealing ideas from other Bloggers...accompanied by a Blog in which the idea was taken from another one), here is a couple of articles of interest from the Atlanta Urinal Constipation:

First, an article on predictions
from various people on today's game. My favorite is where Tony Barnhart predicts UGA to win on a last second field goal and then lists the score as 14-10 (thus making no field goal possible for Georgia for those of you scoring at home).

Secondly, an article on possible bowl scenarios
for the SEC after today's contest. To sum it up, if UGA wins, we know where we go, but if we lose, we will probably end up in the Peach Bowl vs. Clemson. Also, if USC (the Trojans) lose to UCLA today, then expect Auburn to play USC in the Fiesta Bowl.

Finally, a picture (from my *thankfully* chunkier college days) to make all of you feel better about the game today...

Tiger Head

Until next time kids.

Be safe (and Go F*CKING DAWGS!!!!).

Well since my breakdowns have been bad luck in the latter part of the season, I have again decided to be superstitious and not do one.

However, I have a brand new Munson Mix that, in my own opinion, isn't bad for an hour's worth of work. I wish I knew how to use Windows Movie Maker and also had a way to find UGA Highlights. I'd put together one hellacious "Pump Me Up for a Tiger Beating" video.

Anyway, if you want the Munson Mix, let me know. It's best used right before kickoff with a slight level of intoxication. I'll be more than happy to forward it to whoever wants it, so just leave your e-mail in the comments and I'll send it all at once. Therefore, if no one comments, then no one loves me. Ha. Guilt rules.

About the game:

In my honest opinion, I think we win Saturday and I think we do it convincingly. I think UGA finally says "Don't ever count us out before the season begins. You media pundits should know better." I also think I'll be sickened for about a good two hours watching feel good LSU bullshit stories about Hurricane Katrina. I know everything that happened down there was horrible, but honestly, it's over so let's just play some football. Mark my words, we can not look like a great team even if we win. If we win we'll hear, "We'll this is a moral victory for the Tigers by making it this far into the season after Hurricane Katrina AND a new coach." If we lose, the media will orgasm EVERYWHERE so make sure you cover your eyes. Ugh.

For anyone going to the game, I got an e-mail from PWD today saying UGA has announced the Dawg Walk will be at 3:55 p.m. and in UGA's words:

"The team will arrive and depart the buses at the West Plaza near the Gold Parking Deck off Northside Dr. They will proceed to Stairtower Four at which point they will go down stairs to the players' entrance."

PWD also dumbed it down for us....

Gate B.

Anyway, Dawgs win. Trust me on this one. I wouldn't lie to you, lunchbox.

Until next time kids.

Be safe (and Go Dawgs).

P.S. -- Don't forget about the Munson Mix if you want it. Secretly, I'm really proud of it, but I must credit GeorgiaGirl with the a round about way.
