Hope everyone had a great weekend. Here are a few links for your Sunday reading pleasure...
John Adams from GoVolsXtra.com says Mark Richt ought to send the Vols a thank-you card for turning the Bulldogs' season around last year. From talking to Richt and some of the players, Adams might not be too far off.
In fact, my feature for the Telegraph/Ledger-Enquirer today details just how that Tennessee game changed both the Dawgs and Richt.
Of course, down in Gainesville, GatorCountry.com still thinks Richt is a jerk (and, apparently, a liar).
Bleacher Report's Brian Trascher offers Dawgs fans a bit of preseason advice.
The Chatanooga Times Free Press's David Paschall has a good piece on the new 40-second clock being used in college football this year. This is the NCAA's third clock rule change in three years, which is a bit ridiculous.
During Media Days, Richt said he was jealous he didn't have a chance to take advantage of the new rules during his early days at Georgia, but also admitted the ability of teams to stall at the line of scrimmage will likely annoy the heck out of fans.
From the Pensacola News Journal, Jason Blakeny wonders why the media loves Georgia so much this year --- except in its preseason poll.
The Oregonian wraps up SEC Media Days. Yeah, you know your conference has some real box office cred when a paper on the opposite coast is covering it. Trust me when I tell you, newspapers aren't exactly throwing around cash for frivilous travel expenses.One more note: A few people have asked me whether I'll be posting on dawg-extra.blogspot.com or ugadogsblog.blogspot.com this season. The answer is, I'll be doing both. Content on both sites is added simultaneously. One site is linked from the Macon Telegraph, the other is linked from the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer. We'll be making some hosting changes in the near future though, so all this is subject to change. I will keep you all in the loop. Thanks so much for reading, and I hope you enjoyed Week 1 of the blog.
