A few Bulldog-related links

Georgia's football team is heading for one of its most high-profile game in some time. So clearly, we need to start the week with a basketball note.

The Bulldogs are projected to earn a No. 6 seed in the NCAA tournament, according to Gary Parrish of If Parrish's predictions are 100 percent correct, and there's no reason they shouldn't, Georgia's first-round opponent would either be Maryland, Xavier, Florida State or Arizona.

- Now, as for football, some bowl projections.'s Stewart Mandel has Georgia in the Liberty Bowl, playing Central Florida. For those of you who haven't noticed, George O'Leary has UCF ranked for the first time since that program moved up to Division I-A in the mid-1990s.

If that matchup happened, I believe it would be the first time Mark Richt and Georgia have faced O'Leary since Richt's first year, 2001, which was O'Leary's last at Georgia Tech before his ill-fated sojourn to Notre Dame.'s Chris Low
has Georgia in the Music City Bowl playing an ACC team.

These bowl projections are essentially based on Georgia losing at Auburn, but beating Georgia Tech. There's a chance Tennessee, with a strong finish, could sneak into the Liberty or Music City ahead of Georgia, but I doubt Kentucky would.

So essentially if Georgia does finish 6-6, it's almost certainly going to one of the Tennessee bowls. If it upsets Auburn and beats Georgia Tech, it would probably be in play for the Outback or Gator.

If it finishes 0-2, then all bets are off.

- Auburn athletics director Jay Jacobs told USA Today that the Cameron Newton investigation is "not a closed matter" and is "ongoing." But (and this is me talking) there's still little reason to believe anything would happen this week to prevent Newton from playing against Georgia.

- Conan O'Brien's show starts on TBS tonight. I'll be happy to have him back on the air, and even happier not to see his commercials every other minute. (Although they weren't that bad.)
