It’s garbage time in this football game for the Dawgs now. They are killing the clock as there is now 4:19 left in the game. The Dawgs have played a really solid game. They’ve won the turnover battle and had the ball in Tennessee territory numerous times. This game was a much needed hiatus from the 4 game losing streak that had plagued Mark Richt’s team. Georgia will go to 2-4 on the season.
GEORGIA WINS THE GAME 41-14 OVER TENNESSEE. …exhale dawg fans…the losing streak is over.
It is 41-14 still. There is now 11 minutes left on the Georgia clock. Tennessee is moving the ball. Georgia’s first team defense is still in the game. Tennessee is running out of the shotgun in every single play at this point. Vance Cuff has played a really good game for the Dawgs. Tennessee is now on the Georgia 8 yard line. Simms is now under center. Brandon Boykin defends a fade pass attempt very well. Boykin comes up big again breaking up a pass that would have been a Tennessee touchdown. Dawgs take over the ball on their own four yard line
DAWGS-41 VOLS-14 WITH 8:08 LEFT IN THE GAME.
Georgia has the ball again after the Tennessee touchdown. Georgia has the ball in Tennessee territory again with Kris Durham catching a pass. Ball is now on the Tennessee 38 yard line. Tennessee got called on a late hit on Tavarres King. It was a WWE style throwdown. Coach Richt ran down the sidelines vehemently making sure the flag would be thrown. Shaun Chapas just ran for the touchdown. Dawgs are scoring in bunches now. 7 plays for 66 yards on the drive.
DAWGS-41 VOLS-14 WITH 3:12 LEFT IN THE 3RD QUARTER
This internet in the press box is still shaky. Here’s what’s happened. Aaron Murray is a star ladies and gentleman. He ran for another touchdown by touching the pylon with the ball right before he went out of bounds. With the internet being as it is, keep checking @dayneyoung on twitter for more reliable updates.
DAWGS-34 VOLS-7 WITH 9:45 LEFT IN THE 3RD QUARTER
Georgia has a 2nd and goal on the 22 yard line now. The Dawgs have exhibited some very sloppy redzone play. So now what do you do? A.J. Green pass you say? 22 yard touchdown catch for A.J. Green. I seriously think that Green could be the number 1 receiver for about half of the teams in the NFL right now.
DAWGS-24 VOLS-7 WITH 5:15 LEFT IN THE HALF
They will get even better field position now after a late hit penalty on the Vols. Logan Gray was hit after the play. Georgia now has the ball on Tennessee’s 21 yard line. Murray runs for 8 yards. This kid is very impressive. Georgia has a a third and goal. They tried a quick pass to A.J. Green. Now Blair Walsh comes in for the 20 yard field goal. Snap, Hold, and kick are all good and the Dawgs put another three on the board.
DAWGS 27 VOLS-7 WITH 2:15 LEFT IN THE 2ND QUARTER.
I apologize for the lack of updates. This internet has really been annoying. Here’s what you’ve missed. Georgia’s offense has slowed down tremendously. They have two punts…but the one that just was booted resulted in Georgia’s football as Blake Sailors a redshirt freshman CB from Athens recovered a botched return. Georgia now has the ball on Tennessee’s 36 yard line. By the way, Tennessee threw a touchdown pass earlier in the quarter. Dawgs-17 and Vols-7.
Murray starts off the drive with shades of David Greene against Kentucky years back with a playaction, nonchalant hide the ball on your hip play. He then passed for a 30 yard completion to Aron White. White and Orsen Charles have catches today. Dawgs are now at the 7 yard line. Georgia takes a timeout and is driving
DAWGS- 17 VOLS-7 WITH 7:28 LEFT IN THE 2ND QUARTER. DAWGS ON VOLS 7 YARD LINE.
So, the internet has been a little sketchy. Okay, it’s slower than a Terrance Cody 40-time. Regardless, here are the cliffnotes for the moments we’ve missed. Blair Walsh kicked a field goal. Georgia recovered a fumble on Tennessee’s kickoff return attempt. Then Murray threw a touchdown pass to Wooten. A.J. Green did get shaken up on a play but appears to be alright.
Dawgs-17 Vols-0 after the 1st quarter.
Georgia has won the opening toss and defers to the second half. One of the stories coming into this contest was changes made by Coach Mark Richt. He practiced in full pads three times this week including on Monday. He also promised that he would lead the team out of the tunnel. He did so and I just have to tell you, Coach still has some wheels. He hit the big G” banner with some intensity. He definitely got the crowd into it. While the Stadium isn’t full, there is definitely energy. It’s a good atmosphere for two teams who have combined to beat the likes of Louisiana-Lafayette, Tennessee-Martin, and UAB. Here is a mind-blowing stat: This is the first time since 1906 that both Georgia and Tennessee enter their game with each other with losing records.
Tennesse did get the ball first and has been giving the Dawgs a heavy dose of Georgia native Tauren Poole. Tennessee had a 3rd and 1 with 13:30 left in the first. Matt Simms ran a quarterback sneak for the first down. Vols have a fresh set of downs and the ball at their own 33 yard line. Why do I feel like this contest has potential to portray Lewis Grizzard’s metaphor of two donkeys fighting over a turnip.
As I’m thinking about witty puns, The dawgs have stopped the Vols and two straight carries. It’s 3rd and 12 from the Tenn 31. Vols get a delay of game penalty and it’s now 3rd and 17 for the Vols. They run a draw with Tauren Poole. Bacarri Rambo stopped him about 3 yards shy of the marker.
Wow, A.J. Green returned the punt for the Dawgs. I knew that he wanted to return punts, but I did not know that Richt gave him the go ahead to do so. This really is a must win atmosphere for Georgia. Green gained around 6 yards on his first punt return of his career. Caleb King is the starting Running back for the Dawgs. Georgia will start shop at its own 27 yard line. There is 10:44 left in the 1st quarter.
Georgia’s first offensive play of the game is an incompletion to Tavarres King. The ref said King was out of bounds. Caleb King runs for a 14 yard gain to give the Dawgs a first down. The Georgia offensive line is opening holes and protecting in the first three plays. Dawgs are almost at midfield already. Aaron Murray used a play-action play to roll out and run for 9 yards. another first down. Dawgs already in Tennessee territory. Where has this been all year?
A.J. Green gets a 12 yard catch and shows that he is a manimal. He gave the vols one heck of a stiff-arm. Dawgs sitting at the Vols 35. From that point, Aaron Murray runs for a touch down. There was plenty of green ahead of him and great blocking. Tavarres King had a crucial downfield block. That kid has some wheels. 6 plays 73 yards on the drive for the Dawgs. Aaron Murray sometimes seems like he isn’t a freshman.
With 8:18 left in the 1st quarter, Dawgs: 7 Vols: 0
Here is a picture of the Dawgs gathering at midfield before game. I just get a sense that this team has an “un against the world” mentality. We’ll see if it translates in their play.
Greetings Dawg fans and football fans alike,
I am Dayne Young- your tour guide through the matchup between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Tennessee Volunteers. We are about 30 minutes until kickoff and I wish I could say the fans are out if full fledge, but they aren’t. The student section beside the band is close to being full. But, the student section under the scoreboard is very empty at this point. Nevertheless, the Dawgs and Vols will play. Georgia is in their customary red jersey, silver britches and red helmet uniform. Tennessee is wearing white tops, florescent orange pants, and a white helmet. They look like an inverted creamsicle.
As far as on the field, I think that this game is 100% unpredictable. Both teams have been worse than average. Honestly, the only thing worse than the putrid orange of Tennessee is their record…and the dawg’s record too. Georgia is 1-4 and on it’s first 4 game losing streak in 2o years. I think the team who has the better offensive line will prevail on this Saturday. Be sure to check out this page throughout the game for updates and commentary. Also, if you want immediate info, check out my twitter @dayneyoung. I’ll be updating that as we go along. So, It’s the Dawgs and the creamcicles. I’ll be updating three times per quarter and once at half. All these Dawg fans just hope that they can mirror the magic made by another Georgia team: The Atlanta Braves. Who will be the Dawg’s Rick Ankiel? Keep checking this page and find out!
