I’m excited to finally be back in Fort Stegeman again to watch the Dawgs take on #14 Ole Miss. Georgia comes off a big win against Georgia Tech and a tough loss to Kentucky including many Travis “The Trampoline” Leslie posterizations. Ole Miss lost their first SEC game to Mississippi St, 75-80. Both teams are looking to win their first SEC games.
Before you continue on, here are some links you need to check out. Here’s Connor Nolte’s “Gameday Trick Shot” that he started a couple of games ago. These two are by far the best and feature @ConnorNolte and @Bucklin12 http://bit.ly/6FCcXP. This is Leslie’s last dunk against Kentucky http://bit.ly/7IJ2sW. When the announcer says, “I don’t think anyone in the building saw that coming,” he was technically correct because I was not in the building but I called it on twitter before the game.
On a personal note, this game brings back high school memories in the form of Trevor Gaskins. He played for my high school, Milton, our junior year before bailing to our crosstown rival for his senior year. For his return, we had shirts printed saying 3 Years, 3 Schools, 0 Respect. (Yes, I am wearing it now) It was an epic game in which Georgia’s own Connor Nolte drained a 3 as time expired allowing Milton to win in overtime. Instant classic.
Chris Barnes was out shooting early and drained his last shot: a three from the corner. Gotta be a good sign, right?
Ok, there’s about 50 minutes until game time and I need to throw down some grub. I’ll be back with much, much more.

Can the Dawgs get a win on Coach Fox’s birthday? We’re about to find out. (more…)
