  • Bulldog Nation hopes it got a glimpse of what it will soon demand

    The last time the Dawgs had a season this bad, it also finished in the Liberty Bowl. At least this time, Georgia will leave Memphis ringing the bell on the Liberty Bowl trophy.

    If you’re going to come to this part of Tennessee you might as well go home with some hardware.

    This 31-23 win over TCU will also edge up what is already sky-high expectations for 2017. You know, sort of like the sky-high expectations for 2016.

    December has probably been the best month of the 2016 season. Five of Georgia’s impact juniors said they are coming back and recruiting is going [More]

  • Dawgs head to Memphis for their big audition

    Memphis is a music town. It’s the home of the blues and the home of the man with the Blue Suede Shoes.

    How many people have come this town with the only thing getting in the way of a job is an audition?

    You can add another 75 Bulldogs, plus a few coaches, to that list on Friday when Georgia plays in the Liberty Bowl.

    Welcome to your big audition for what everybody hopes will be a big 2017 season.

    If you aren’t playing in a bowl game that matters (and in case you’re wondering, the Liberty Bowl doesn’t), then the main question [More]

  • A disappointing loss to sum up a disappointing season

    Few things make a Georgia fan feel worse than seeing this.

    ATHENS — Didn’t somebody around here used to command his players to “Finish the Drill?”

    Seems that lesson has been forgotten. Now Tech gets to taste the hedges again.

    For the third time this season Georgia led in the fourth quarter and lost. The Tennessee game was a miracle. The Vanderbilt game was just weird. The Georgia Tech game, well this was a collapse of painful proportions.

    In 6:30 of football time, Georgia’s season went from fair, decent and maybe even good, to bad, aggravating and utterly disappointing.

    “I’m sick,” were the first words [More]

  • GAMEDAY LIVE: Georgia Tech vs Georgia

    FOURTH QUARTER

    3:11 — Georgia Tech plants its flag at midfield as Tech players jump up and down on the Georgia G. Dawgs blow a 13 point lead in the 4th quarter.

    FINAL SCORE: Georgia Tech 28, Georgia 27

    3:04 — Touchdown Georgia Tech: Searcy with a 6 yd run. It was a halfback pass, but Searcy runs up the middle for the score. Tech leads 28-27 with 30 seconds left. 

    3:00 — 13 tackles for Roquan Smith a career high

    2:53 — Eason throws an interception on a deflected pass. Jackets ball at the UGA 46. 3:39 left. UGA leads 27-21.

    2:47 — Sony Michel with 168 rushing yards [More]

  • Top three things to know: Georgia Tech vs. Georgia

    How does the new UGA regime handle Tech’s option?

    Isn’t this always the number one thing to watch for when Georgia plays Georgia Tech?

    The new wrinkle this year, UGA coach Kirby Smart has never faced Paul Johnson’s triple option.

    Smart says the only time he’s really seen it was as Alabama defensive coordinator against Georgia Southern in 2011. The Crimson Tide won but still allowed 302 rushing yards.

    So Smart started preparing for Georgia Tech in the spring, sprinkling in practice against the flexbone option when he could. Smart has also called other coaches asking for advice and has even brought in former [More]

  • The declining state of Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate

    If you are a Georgia Tech fan, no game, no moment, no single event matters more than beating Georgia.

    You sing about it in your fight song.

    You talk about dropping battle axes on Georgia’s head.

    It’s evidently the good word.

    365 days a year, it’s all about beating the Dawgs.

    Your coach has taken your team to two Orange Bowls and won the school’s first ACC title since 1990 (which has since been vacated). And yet, he’s starting to wear out his welcome in part because he’s only beaten Georgia twice and never at home.

    However, Georgia Tech’s leader is now the dean of coaches [More]

  • No stress for the Dawgs on a beautiful, blacked out Saturday

    Isaiah McKenzie runs for the history in the Dawgs win over ULL

    ATHENS — Georgia had a few things to accomplish today.

    Look good in black. Check. Make a statement from the start. Check and check again. Dominate throughout. Uhh not quite. Win the game and keep everybody healthy for Georgia Tech. Done. Be comfortable enough to play the reserves in the fourth quarter. Yup.

    Alright so Georgia didn’t win 50-0. At times, this game was a bit of a snoozer. But the Dawgs didn’t screw around with this team, like they have with all the other drift they’ve played this season. And one of those games, [More]

  • Top three things to know: Louisiana-Lafayette vs. Georgia

    Yes everybody will be in black tomorrow, including Uga

    How well do the Dawgs look in black?

    I’m not talking about how well the uniforms look, because we all know the black threads are pretty sharp. I’m saying Georgia needs a big win.

    The Dawgs are a 23-point favorite and they need to play like it. All six of Georgia’s wins have been decided in the final quarter. So have all of its losses, except for the first one to Ole Miss.

    UGA only has one double-digit win and that was 14 points to South Carolina. If Georgia didn’t get a touchdown on the [More]

  • An off-duty Fulton County police officer shot a man after a chase in Atlanta Wednesday morning, the GBI says. The officer, whose name has not been released, was in his personal vehicle about 11 a.m., when he responded to a theft at a T-Mobile store on Mount Zion Parkway in Morrow, GBI spokesman Rich Bahan said.  The officer followed the suspect’s car into the city limits of Atlanta while reporting the incident to 911, Bahan said. At some point near Alyson Court, the two cars collided and when the driver got out of his car the off-duty officer shot him with his service weapon, Bahan said.   MORE:  Sheriff: Man out on bond for murder arrested after fighting victim’s family Ex-NFL player jailed after allegedly attacking woman in front of kids Police: Men brought ‘bag of bullets’ to shootout with alleged gang members Witness Jay Mitchell told Channel 2 Action News he thinks the man was shot in the stomach area after the police officer chased him and tried to pull him over. The suspect kept driving even after he was shot, Bahan said, and Atlanta police stopped him in the 1700 block of Lakewood Avenue. Whether the off-duty Fulton County officer stayed on the scene was not released, but his car was found parked at a store on Cleveland Avenue, Channel 2 reported. The man who was shot was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, Bahan said. The shooting is the fourth in less than a week involving a Georgia officer. A Georgia State Patrol trooper fatally shot a man after a chase early Saturday in Polk County. Jason Dennis Watkins, 36, was taken to Polk County Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

  • A middle school bus driver in the Valdosta area is accused of driving under the influence of alcohol while students were on her bus, according to the Lowndes County sheriff. Amanda Mullinax, 41, registered more than twice the legal limit, Lowndes County Sheriff Ashley Paulk said.

  • U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch vowed to uphold the law if confirmed to the nation’s highest court, not tipping his hand as he sidestepped controversial political subjects, as Gorsuch directly pushed back against President Donald Trump’s criticism of federal judges. “When anyone criticizes the honesty or integrity, the motives of a federal judge, I find that disheartening; I find that demoralizing,” Gorsuch said in response to questions from Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT). “Anyone including the President of the United States?” Blumenthal pressed. “Anyone is anyone,” Gorsuch replied. In a day of testimony that stretched for almost twelve hours, Gorsuch parried most questions from Democrats, who tried in vain to get him to reveal his views on issues like abortion, and items that might come before the Supreme Court, like President Trump’s travel ban. Gorsuch repeatedly refused to take the bait. “I can’t get involved in politics, and I think it would be very imprudent of judges to start commenting on political disputes,” Gorsuch said. Under questioning from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Gorsuch was asked what he had discussed with President Trump on the issue of abortion. “In that interview did he ever ask you to overrule Roe v Wade?” Graham asked. “No, Senator,” Gorsuch replied, adding that if the President had asked that question, “I would have walked out the door.” Gorsuch was pressed about the President in a number of different ways, telling Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) that, “nobody is above the law in this country, and that includes the President of the United States.” With Republicans strongly in support of Gorsuch, there was already maneuvering behind the scenes over the expected floor fight in the Senate, as Democrats have made clear they think the GOP should be forced to get 60 votes for his nomination. That has prompted GOP leaders to criticize the threat of a filibuster. “If there aren’t 60 votes for a nominee like Neil Gorsuch it’s appropriate to ask the question is there any nominee any Republican president could make that Democrats would approve,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Gorsuch’s lengthy day of testimony ended on a light note, as Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) suggested to Gorsuch that he have a cocktail before bed. “Just don’t drink vodka,” Kennedy said to chuckles from the audience. Kennedy then drew even more laughter by adding in one more surprise. “You never been to Russia, have you?” “I’ve never been to Russia,” a smiling Gorsuch said.
  • Donald Trump Jr. is facing criticism for tweeting in the hours after Wednesday's London attack a months-old comment from London Mayor Sadiq Khan that terror attacks are part of living in a big city. Trump Jr. tweeted : 'You have to be kidding me?!: Terror attacks are part of living in big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan.' The tweet included a link to a Sept. 22 story from Britain's Independent newspaper that includes the quote from Khan, who was asking Londoners to be vigilant following a bombing in New York City. British Member of Parliament Wes Streeting was among numerous Britons who responded to the tweet with criticism. He called Trump Jr. 'a disgrace' and accused him of using a terrorist attack for 'political gain.' When asked about Trump Jr. on Thursday, Khan told CNN: 'I'm not going to respond to a tweet from Donald Trump Jr. I've been doing far more important things over the past 24 hours.' He added that 'terrorists hate the fact' that cities including London, New York and Paris have 'diverse communities living together peacefully.
