Today, the Dawgs play against a pretty good LSU team at 3:00 PM. Right now UGA is playing two entirely different halves each time they hit the hardwood. When they played Alabama, they were lights out in the first half and atrocious in the second. Against Kentucky, it was the opposite.
However, today's game isn't all about basketball. As PWD broke earlier in the week
, today will be a UGA "Red Out" in honor of Kevin Brophy with a memorial ceremony before tipoff
. I wasn't able to follow the program as much when Brophy played, honestly due to the fact the Dawgs just weren't on TV. However, for whatever this kid lacked in talent, he made up for in heart. He was a true lockerroom guy and led with his desire to win, which inspired the others around him.
Today, shortly after tipoff, our guys in Nikes have a decision to make: Are they going to really do it for Broph, or are the going to get caught up in the moment and become overwhelmed with emotion? It's very possible that they could do both.
Let's hope that today the students and alumni show up with their best red, and honor someone who made a difference in a program that really needed it.
Until next time kids.
