QB Aaron Murray - UGASports.com

Boy, oh boy... the next few weeks are going to move like molasses. Not just because we have the annual World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party (WLOCP) with Florida in 2 weeks, and not just because we have a buy, but because of the way we played vs. Vandy.

Although every single year Vandy seems to play us very tough, for some reason, I thought it would be different. Well, it wasn't... it was a down to the wire, ugly win. That being said, let's get right down to the review of the game.

Road Trip Review - Nashville Edition

Downtown Nashville had tons of bars and restaurants

I've got a ton to cover from this weekend. Outside of having a terrible cold, and coming back in worse shape than I left, I had a great time in Nashville with some good friends. I just wanted to share some of the things we did as a sort of "Nashville Review."

Georgia vs. Vanderbilt Preview - Scouting Vandy's Tough Defense

Chris Marve looks to lead Vandy

Georgia's game with Vanderbilt will be a tough challenge for Georgia's offense. The Vandy defense has gotten a rap as one of the best in the SEC - and rightfully so! The Commodore defense ranks 21st in the nation in total defense, 29th in the nation in rushing defense, 28th in the nation in passing defense, and has a +5 advantage in the turnover margin - which ranks 15th in the nation.

Good morning, Dawg Fans! 

Our crew had a great night in Nashville last night. If you ever get the chance, check out Blackstone Brewery - great micro-brews and great food!

Now, against my happy-go-lucky attitude, I felt like I needed to address an interview I read this morning with Hutson Mason with Seth Emerson from Macon.com.

Hairy Dog and UGA Need YOUR HELP!

Dawg fans, every year, the Capital One Bowl presents the "Capital One Bowl Mascot Challenge." Basically, fans from the selected school are able to vote for their school's mascot in an effort to win a scholarship for their school's mascot program.

I'm headed up to Nashville from Savannah this morning, so it will be a light post day. We'll pick it back up tomorrow. However, I didn't want to just leave you all with nothing, therefore, here are some good links to read while I am away!

Mike Gilliard, good for you. I always love seeing a young guy step up and realize his potential.
