    DawgDaddy websater Brooklyndawg Whataburger is incredible-and they gave Samaritan’s Purse workers free lunches in Texas during flooding last year

  2. 1Dawg under God

    So my son goes into the 9th grade this coming year and I go to pick him up from practice and college scouts all the place. Was weird cause we sure didn’t see that back in the day.

  3. DawgDaddy

    websater Brooklyndawg never had a smashburger but I would rate the ones you listed as Whataburger, then In & Out and then 5 Guys. All are good though

  4. PatriotVeteran

    DawgLink    Maybe they were in Jail like normal.      Maybe they were out counting the number of UT players being interviewed for playing in the NFL.

  5. RumRunnerDoogie

    Brooklyndawg think they are based out of texas, the used to have one down here but it didnt last long. they were good tho

  6. Brooklyndawg

    We found 5 guys to be just BIG, but just OK in taste. No in and outs here. Never heard of whata burger

  7. PTCDawg

    A little long but brilliant read on Zamir Whate at Dawgnation. Worth the time. Really hope that cat is a dawg!!

  8. PTCDawg

    RumRunnerDoogie websater Brooklyndawg websater oddly, I only find 5 Guys burgers to be good…their hotdogs, on the other hand, are brilliant!

  9. RumRunnerDoogie

    websater Brooklyndawg websater five guys is amazing, not many in and outs on the east coast lol

  10. websater

    Brooklyndawg websater heresy, smashburger is average at best, id take 5 guys, in and out and whataburger over them.

  11. Jesse1

    Bulldawg36 Truth. You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still Arkansas 😉

  12. Brooklyndawg

    Especially for websater, new survey of best burgers in the US is Smashburger. There are 4 in Ga, none in Athens (naturally).

  13. Greg Poole

    Well, the event tonight is closed for audio and video recording and everyone must have a ticket – including media.
    We are getting a few minutes of Kirby time prior to the event.

  14. Bulldawg36

    Don’t watch em. The NBA playoffs are a lil better than watching regular season MLB

  15. Brooklyndawg

    Talked to my financial guy last week. He says the new stadium is often less than half full but because “corporate” buys season tickets, the Yankees announce much higher attendance. The beast needs to be sold off or stopped being fed, otherwise nothing will ever change.

  16. Bulldawg36

    Be a while before the Braves are a contender. That new Staduim in Cobb county doesn’t make em any better

  17. Brooklyndawg

    I didn’t think there’s a worse team than the Yankees this year, but the Barves just got beaten out 8 to zip. Both may achieve 100+ losses. Cashman says big changes may be coming. One needs to be him, as GM.

  18. RumRunnerDoogie

    Bansai buckeroo been raining down here for about 12 hours straight haha

  19. Brooklyndawg

    I’m reading my new Discover magazine, then cleaning the cat litter boxes, rather than watching this paint dry….

  20. dsw61

    Greg Poole The baseball team needs to see this:) I always refer to Newton’s Third Law when working with hitters to explain why you don’t want to swing down.

  21. ZippyMorocco

    I spent most of the day in Pendergras, GA, but will try to pick up the pace.

  22. Brooklyndawg

    I go by 247 composite. Never heard of this outfit. One of the herd of prognosticators?


    Greg Poole Need a few more seconds of video, did the fool get ran over by the van???  lol

  24. Greg Poole

    Have to run a couple of errands before heading to Macon for KirbyDay. I hear the place is going to be packed to the rafters. 
    Bulldawg Bob2 will be in shortly.
    I’ll post the full event to SoundCloud as soon as CKS finishes.

  25. Brooklyndawg

    MMCSDAWG Brooklyndawg I agree with you 110% (lol). Go to 9 (or 10 if absolutely necessary) teams and eliminate permanent rivalries. I could care less about playing GT, Florida, Tenn, SCe, and the likes, year after year after year after year. BORING!!! Who cares??? As an adult human bean, give me the diversity of a true rotated, diversified schedule, exactly the way you so aptly described it. and I’m also good. And get rid of those awful cupcake games, while you’re evolving. Naturally I know this will never happen, because it’s all about money and vested interests, and that cannot ever change.

    Now, let the rancor flow….

  26. Brooklyndawg

    Bulldawg36 I like some dogs, not all, and I’ve had 4 different dogs in my lifetime. For my tastes, nothing can beat Egyptian Mau cats….jmo. having had both dogs and cats.

  27. Brooklyndawg

    There’s a term from the dark ages! I knew you were old, but not THAT old…

  28. Brooklyndawg

    My understanding is they used a point scoring system, hence the huge numbers. It was not a traditional football game.

  29. Bulldawg36

    How delusional is Bob shoop? He said dey ain’t nobody gonna run the damned ball on his orange swarm! I hate the Vols! I hope Chubb rushes for a career high of 300 yards on em!!!!!!!!

  30. Bulldawg36

    Hope he stays at we tho! We need more depth at WR. More good depth… Can’t depend on sha Williams and Reggie Davis.

  31. RumRunnerDoogie

    Greg Poole AlphaDawg not really to add onto it by the seminole tribe actually likes them and is ok when them being the noles. who knows

  32. AlphaDawg

    Greg Poole AlphaDawg I’ve told them all time and time again to not just open every attachment they receive. Not only did they open the attachment, they hit “Run”!!

  33. Greg Poole

    AlphaDawg  Not directed at you.

    OK – everyone hates political correctness so let’s refrain from piling on this – please.

  34. Greg Poole

    AlphaDawg Hate that. Our old server was a nightmare with the malware regeneration.

  35. AlphaDawg

    Greg Poole AlphaDawg User here downloaded a virus. I’ve been scrubbing a machine for 2 hours

  36. Greg Poole

    MMCSDAWG The ‘balance thing is stupid and can’t be done. How do you know 5 years in advance how a team will perform. He can only mean balancing ‘names’ and that will not work.


    Greg Poole MMCSDAWG Brooklyndawg Oh, I agree Greg, I NEVER want to see our Rivalry games go away.  But, does this solution actually create a balance in strength of schedule like he is claiming or does it allow a lessor team like Texas A&M to have a “permanent” schedule that is no where near as difficult as say Florida’s or Alabama’s year in and year out.  I kinda of liked the idea bantered about the other day about moving Auburn into the East and Missouri into the West, plus I would like to see the SEC go to a 9 game SEC schedule.

  38. Bulldawg36

    Who is he. Going to the Denisist in Anderson Monday for a cleaning and even that hurts. Lol

  39. Greg Poole

    MMCSDAWG Brooklyndawg  Permanent rivalries are not going away. In fact, SEC needs to restore a few (UF/AU for one).

    The question is about the advantages of changing. Remember that the current system was established in order to qualify for a championship game and it is no longer necessary. 

    SEC is all about innovation – put some of those innovators to work.


    Brooklyndawg The only problem I would have is are we…  CFB going to do this throughout the power 5 or just in the SEC.  We have seen the round robin type play in the Big12 really hurt their chances of being selected for the NC playoff.  I definitely agree that their is currently an imbalance, but does a 4 or 5 team permanent schedule really fix that?  So 5 out of your 8 SEC games are going to be permanent with 3 being rotating thru the rest of the SEC teams.  I don’t like the 5 permanent games.  So who are Texas A&M and Missouri’s permanent games?  I believe I want to have my team on those schedules…  or Kentucky and Vanderbilt, we’ve been playing them longer so I want them on my permanent schedule as well.  I like the top 2 teams in the SEC making the conference championship, but I don’t honestly believe this solution is much better than divisions right now with an 8 game schedule.  If the SEC wants to move to 9 SEC games and eliminate permanent rivalries and play a truly rotational schedule where you never go more than a year without playing everyone in the SEC then I’m good.  But without increasing the SEC schedule to 9 conference games or more, you will never get truly balances schedules.

  41. Bulldawg36

    Make the sec a ten league team again- guess we would lose too much money tho. Heck the sec might even expand

  42. Brooklyndawg

    Errr….different subject. The article us about abolishing the SEC divisions, not SC the university. Another Deidescheim?

  43. Bulldawg36

    Why don’t you buy an English bulldog? You don’t think it would get along with the cats?

  44. Bulldawg36

    I agree. Wish we would drop SC from the sec. They don’t belong on the same field with us. Hate SC!!

  45. Brooklyndawg

    JMO, but I wouldn’t mind seeing this happen at all. Winning the SEC east has become an undervalue consulation prize.

  46. Brooklyndawg

    Goodness!!! At my age I worry more about having another tooth capped or should I really open my pool for Memorial Day than will a 2018 football player sign with UGA. Just priorities.

  47. Greg Poole

    MMCSDAWG The ‘head up’ thing is about the coach rather than the dummy, right.  It would be the same if the thing did not have wheels, would it not?

    What I’m saying is since every team uses dummies, why not use better dummies? I see it as a better mousetrap.  How fast does a traditional dummy move? 

    Check out the opening drill in this vid and imagine the runner replace with a MVP.  I think the point is that coaches have not developed drills for these things.  They will not replace hitting but they may improve bag drills.


    DawgDaddy Greg Poole I said the same thing over on the page its self…  I’m still skeptical.  It might work for an Ivy league school, but unless those things move a lot faster and quicker than what I saw and/or work on grass.  They are a limited tool, useful yes, but limited in true value.  DD, I counted 3 or 4 tackles/blocks where the players head was Not up as it should be…  Head up will prevent broken neck or spine, head down, we all know what can happen.  Your facemask should never be less than 45* angle to the object your hitting.

  49. deltonadawg

    Greg Poole The Old Miss situation just gets better and better. I would say Hugh has allot of egg on his face.


    Bulldawg Bob2 Hope the check ups go well!  Take care of your business, we will be here when you guys get back!

  51. haws1178

    These are very nice I’ve had to install some over the last few years. The light they put out is unreal very close to natural lighting

  52. Bulldawg Bob2

    Score Check  No news there as of yet. I am sure the charges will be reduced though.

  53. Score Check

    What’s the latest with Clay and Rochester?  Have the charges been reduced or are they still charged with felonies?

  54. Bulldawg Bob2

    Good morning everyone. Mrs. BB2 and I have a busy morning and early afternoon with annual checkups at the docs’, but I’ll be checking in from time to time on my favorite Bulldawgs.

  55. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole It appeared that some of those tackles were very high, a strong runner like NC27 would be very difficult to bring down like that. IMO
