Greg is closing in on 15 years writing about and photographing UGA sports. While often wrong and/or out of focus, it has been a long, strange trip full of fun and new friends.

    I think this is bad for UGA because this was after his Clemson visit and even though he said there’s no order to his new Top 7 he has Clemson 1 and UGA 2.

    Colonial Dawg yea my pit Georgia thinks shes a 60 pound lap dog, deadliest thing about her is her tail bruising shins when shes happy hah

    Saw where Jacoby Stephens was going to have some type of announcement today (probably about which all-star game?) but haven’t seen anything else on it.  Has anyone seen anything on that?  And on the pit bull issue, my son has one that he rescued after Hurricane Katrina when he was active duty Marine and flew down with Mr. Bush.  They found 4 puppies scrounging for food in Baton Rouge and loaded them up on the plane when they came back to Quantico.  He still has him, and that dog is very sweet natured.  Wants to be a lap dog desperately.  I know that all dogs are different and I agree that you never leave a dog to run unsupervised…..ANY dog.

    Greg Poole I know my dog doesn’t like tobasco sauce, he barks at the bottle everytime he sees it

  5. Bulldawg36 Just too many irresponsible dog owners around here. One person let’s their German Shepard roam free and it almost got hold of me & the wife about a year ago. Iet me just say we don’t walk that way anymore. Lol

  6. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Greg Poole You are absolutely right Greg, Irresponsible owners should be severely fined and have their animals taken from them

  7. Bulldawg36

    Greg..where do you buy the pepper spray from? I need to get me some so I can spray some of the mongrels around here that aren’t chained up.

  8. Bulldawg36

    Why thank you dawg mum! My Sprits are up because of the new coaching staff!!! I believe we are headed in the right direction!!

  9. Greg Poole

    It is not about the breed. People need to control aggressive dogs. I have had several incidents over the years. The main thing I have learned is that if a dog comes in the street aggressively, I spray him. Human strength pepper spray has never fail to stop one.

  10. Avon Barksdale

    If you outlaw that breed, the idiots who breed them for the wrong reasons would simply move on to the next dangerous breed du jour. as a responsible Pitbull owner I can tell you my dog is extremely well-behaved, beloved by the kids in the neighborhood,and NEVER left outside unsupervised, unlike several other dogs in the neighborhood that are actually much less friendly than him…

  11. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Bulldawg36 I don’t trust any dog I’m not familiar with, especially one roaming around without an owner present

  12. Bulldawg36

    I don’t want to ban Pitt Bulls. I know some are good if they’re raised the right way. Personally I don’t trust Pitt Bulls and would never own one. Also all dogs should not be allowed to run around- they should secured. Some people let their dogs run the roads even tho they know they will attack people and other animals

  13. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    DawgLink 3 big keys to owning a Pit are 1. Socialize the dog early and often and 2. teach it obediance and 3. give it tons of exercise, they are a high energy animal and become hard to deal with if they become bored and don’t have an outlet for that energy

  14. DawgLink

    My brother and I had a boy and girl from the same litter. Both were sweet as could be

  15. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    JessCapel Greg Poole I find that comment extremely offensive, as a responsible owner of a Pit I am always with my dog and he is not aggressive towards anyone because of how I raised him. To categorize a good dog with a bad dog just because of breed is extremely narrow minded. Having said that I do think the owners of these dogs should be held to higher standard of ownership.

  16. JessCapel

    Greg Poole Should outlaw that breed…tired of all that BS of how they are misunderstood.

  17. Greg Poole

    Just got back from walking my dog. We got jumped by 2 pits. Luckily I had a can of human strength CS spray and we escaped without injury except for CS splash. Hard to type with one eye.

  18. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Greg Poole bet that motorcycle wasn’t the only thing that left skid marks

  19. Greg Poole

    When the TV sports rights bubble bursts (and it will), I predict the SEC and SEC Network will be in the best position, by far, of any conference. SEC will spend to see conference games at a much higher rate per school than any other conference.
    When the bubble bursts there will be another round of realignment. Mizzou and Vandy will have trouble justifing their continued membership, IMHO.

  20. DawgLink

    Indeed. People take for granted that our Freedoms were free. Thanks for your service

  21. dawgmum

    ZippyMorocco dawgmum PTCDawg Neither of those two choices strikes me as being exciting. Only a commitment will do. ##

  22. Bulldawg36

    I think it was Hugh freeze that said that about Kirby in the Lindys. Because he said he didn’t think UGA would be that good with a first year coach and freshman qb-but they could catch lighting in the bottle because of the weak east.

  23. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    dawgmum PTCDawg probably which All_star game he plans to participate in or something along those lines

  24. Greg Poole

    Hobnailboot aka RobG College students might be slightly less prone to substances than the general population, but I’m not sure about that.

  25. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Greg Poole I wonder how different that is from 18-22 YO that are not in college… guess is not very, I was one of those who drank and did drugs during that period of my life

  26. PTCDawg

    Dawgs been getting some CB love lately. Last 5 days we have gotten 5 for JaCoby, 4 for Tony Gray and 1 today for Andrew Thomas. Probably from the dawgnation article. Those are 3 pretty darn good players to be trending our direction.

    In other news, Ol Missy is getting pretty close to tying with Tenn as my least favorite team. Not quite there yet but closing fast.

  27. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole I agree wholeheartedly but one observation of the home schooled kids I know it that they all seem to manage there time better than average, that in and of itself is a great education that many miss.

  28. DawgLink

    Considering the fact that football supports most of the other athletics, you keep the cash coffers happy. No brainer

  29. DawgLink

    A mid tier SEC team can not just start signing top 5 classes. Sure they didn’t do anything wrong!#

  30. Greg Poole

    Hobnailboot aka RobG That depends on who is at home doing the schooling and the effort they put into it.

    ZippyMorocco one of my good friends lost a brother there.  We cannot thank their families enough, nor the ones who made it back.

    Everyone should take a little time today to remember our fallen heroes.

  33. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    DawgDaddy Greg Poole it’s certainly better than a lot of public schools, wish I had been home schooled

  34. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole DawgDaddy This makes no sense to me, home schooling is actually great for most kids, a 23 on the ACT is grounds for admission to me.

  35. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole She moved her head a good 8 inches closer after letting go, somehow I think she failed the class.  haha

  36. Greg Poole

    from 3 months ago:

    He also scored a 23 on his first rep with the ACT and aspires to become a doctor.
    That green check mark is a nod to what those close to him term a “likely” clearance from the NCAA Clearinghouse. McDaniel was homeschooled up until his ninth grade year at Grayson High School. He took a few high-school level courses as an eighth-grader from an accredited association. He’s now playing the waiting game for those to be approved on his transcript.

  37. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole lol, that guy made sure to scoot back some more before laying down.  That hurt!

  38. DawgDaddy

    Greg Poole Hobnailboot aka RobG Is he close or is it a lost cause?  Hargraves has helped a lot of DGDs get into UGA the next year.

  39. Hobnailboot aka RobG

    Greg Poole nice to see the rest of the Nation seeing what Dawg fans have known for years about Ole Miss

  40. Score Check

    Sadly Mykelle Mcdaniel appears to be in NCAA-Hell with no get out of jail card.

  41. ZippyMorocco

    Greg Poole ZippyMorocco 
    They lied about the number of FB infractions, and how many were under freeze’s watch.

  42. Greg Poole

    DawgLink  Yep. NCAA is not going to accept the offered sanctions. That test cheating charge (which they admitted) goes to the heart of what NCAA sees as their mission. Add the Tunsil draft day disclosures and you get some pretty severe scholly losses, IMHO.
