Bulldog News

    UGA will make its first SEC road trip in a couple weeks to Knoxville to face the Tennessee Volunteers on Sept. 30th. The Southeastern Conference on Monday assigned a kickoff time for the game.  The Bulldogs and Volunteers have been given a 3:30pm kickoff, and will be played on CBS as its SEC Game of the Week.  This will be the Bulldogs’ first appearance on CBS this season, and hold an all-time record of 48-38-1 when playing on the network.  Start planning travel/tailgating accordingly. 
  • This coming Saturday night Georgia Bulldog football game will be a Top 25 matchup. The Georgia Dogs host the Mississippi State Bulldogs in the Southeastern Conference opener for the home team. Georgia is ranked 11th in this week's AP poll; Mississippi State is 17th. Both teams are undefeated. The game kicks at 7 o'clock in Sanford Stadium. The game against Mississippi State will be the second time this season the Georgia Bulldogs will have faced a ranked opponent: the Dogs beat the Notre Dame Fighting Irish September 9 in South Bend.  The Bulldogs are coming off a 42-14 win over FCS Samford this past Saturday night. Jay Black wrote about that game for WSB Radio... Alright it was a laugher, it should have been a laugher, it was a laugher. But this is nothing to joke about. The 2017 Georgia Bulldogs have a lot of running backs. A lot of good running backs. Yes this school likes to pride itself as Tailback U. You certainly got to watch a lot of good tailbacks tonight. We didn’t exactly learn a whole lot on this Saturday. Samford didn’t pull off a Nicholls State type-scare and UGA wins 42-14. Wahoo. But we did learn, or confirm, this should and will be a running football team. No matter who is playing quarterback. “That’s one of our depth spots,” Kirby Smart told the UGA Radio Network after the game. “We got a lot of guys who can play.” Yeah no kidding. Let’s start with the bell cow climbing up the UGA record books. Nick Chubb rushes for 131 yards on 16 carries and shows the patience and the vision that’s made him the second leading rusher in school history. Now he’s also second by himself with 19 100-yard games. He trails only Herschel Walker. That’s not bad. Chubb also passed the legendary Charley Trippi to move into a tie for fourth in UGA history with 33 career TD runs. To wedge yourself between Walker and Trippi on any list is a good night. Imagine what could have happened if he didn’t blow out his knee on that sad excuse for grass they call a field in Tennessee? Does Nick Chubb pass Herschel? Probably not, because those stats are still silly good, but it would have been fun to watch. Speaking of injuries, Chubb’s understudy didn’t even play tonight. Sony Michel has a bad ankle. Even if it’s five percent hurt, there was no reason to play tonight. There’s plenty of reinforcements. For example, the freshman. “What a special talent D’Andre Swift is,” said Smart. Uh huh. Kirby was kind of complaining on our air last week that this kid wasn’t getting the ball enough. He got a few chances to show off tonight. Swift had nine carries for 54 yards and a 10 yard catch. Oh yeah, and that touchdown. “You’ve got to see that one on replay tonight,” said UGA analyst Eric Zeier. Swift hit the Circle Button, dropped a beautiful spin move and zoom, into the end zone for his first career TD. He sort of reminds me of Sony Michel when he was a freshman, but I think he might be (gulp) swifter than Sony. The kid can fly. That’s your third string running back folks. But UGA goes five deep. “I still don’t think we’ve seen the best of Brian Herrien,” said Smart. “We see it everyday in practice, but he hasn’t had a chance to show off his skills.” Herrien also got five yards per touch tonight. Walking away with 45 yards on nine carries. He’s smaller, won’t run a lot of people over, but in the last two years, we’ve seen flashes of a guy who deserves more than fourth string. And that goes double for the fifth-stringer, Elijah Holyfield. He was a 4-star recruit and the guy many thought would step in and be the man after Chubb and Michel. He finally got eight carries tonight and only had 28 yards behind the second-string offensive line. But we saw on the kick return that got called back against Notre Dame, that Evander’s son can still be a weapon. Credit to Jim Chaney for finding ways to get all of these guys touches in the early going. Even if it means Holyfield returns kicks, they are all involved. “They run hard, they protect the ball, they protect the ball,” said Smart. “I was proud of the toughness they ran with tonight. They deserve that opportunity.” UGA still has plenty of questions and they weren’t going to be answered tonight. I still don’t know what to make of this offensive line and Jake Fromm is still a freshman. But this team can play defense and it can run the rock. That recipe generally works. Now we find out for real what Kirby has in year two. SEC play begins and the real football starts now.
  • 7:30 p.m. kickoff on Sept. 16, 2017 at Sanford Stadium in Athens
  • The University of Georgia released its full football schedule for the 2018 season today.  9/1 - Austin-Peay (Athens, GA) 9/7 - South Carolina (Columbia, SC) 9/15 - Middle Tennessee State (Athens, GA) 9/22 - Missouri (Columbia, MO) 9/29 - Tennessee (Athens, GA) 10/6 - Vanderbilt (Athens, GA) 10/13 - LSU (Baton Rouge, LA) 10/20 - BYE WEEK 10/27 - Florida (Jacksonville, FL) 11/3 - Kentucky (Lexington, KY) 11/10 - Auburn (Athens, GA) 11/17 - UMass (Athens, GA) 11/24 - Georgia Tech (Athens, GA) A few items of note: Georgia will have seven home games in 2018, whereas it had six homes games in 2017.  The South Carolina game returns to the beginning of the season where it more traditionally has been played. The last few seasons have seen that game moved from mid-October to even mid-November The Bulldogs will travel to LSU for the first time since 2008, a 52-38 win for Georgia as Knowshon Moreno and Matthew Stafford lead the team.  Yet again, with the Florida game being neutral site, and the home-and-home with Georgia Tech every year, Georgia fans will have to go an entire month (35 days) without football and tailgates in Athens. After the Vanderbilt game on Oct. 6th, the next home game will be against Auburn on Nov. 10th.  Georgia will finish the season with three consecutive November home games, when weather can be very nice... but it can also get very cold if night games happen to be scheduled.

  • Georgia Bulldog senior Lorenzo Carter has been named the Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Week following his performance in the win at No. 24 Notre Dame, according to a league announcement.  Carter, a native of Norcross, jumpstarted the Bulldog defense in the team's come-from-behind 20-19 victory against the Irish. Carter tied for the team’s second most tackles with seven, including a sack, forced fumble and recovered fumble on a single play with under two minutes left in the third quarter and Georgia up 17-16.  Carter, who also had a second forced fumble in the game, then pounced on another loose ball with under two minutes left in the game and the Bulldogs leading 20-19 to help clinch the victory. Carter was an anchor to a Georgia defensive unit that limited the Irish to 55 yards on the ground, which was Notre Dame’s lowest output since 2011. The Bulldogs return to Sanford Stadium to host Samford (2-0) on Saturday, Sept. 16. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. and the matchup will be televised by the SEC Network Alternate channel.
  • Start making those tailgate plans for the University of Georgia’s first SEC matchup of the 2018 season.  The Southeastern Conference announced today that kickoff for the September 23rd game against Mississippi State in Sanford Stadium will be a 7pm kickoff on ESPN.  This marks the fourth night kickoff in as many games for the 2017 UGA football season, and the first time ever the team will start a season with four consecutive games under the lights. 
  • Abby Jessen’s photos from the sidelines of the epic Georgia @ Notre Dame game in South Bend
  • Notre Dame has had the Four Horsemen and a long history of star runners from George Gipp to Jerome Bettis. There was no record, though, of the Fighting Irish ever having three players in one game run for more than 100 yards. That changed last week against Temple when Josh Adams (161), Dexter Williams (124) and quarterback Brandon Wimbush (106) each went over the century mark during a 49-16 victory. 'It was awesome. It was a lot of fun,' senior left tackle Mike McGlinchey said Wednesday. The Irish finished with 422 yards rushing. 'Four-hundred yards is no small feat, but we had a lot of mistakes that we need to clean up, and if we don't clean them up it's going to be a longer Saturday against Georgia,' McGlinchey said. 'It's just one of those things that, yeah, we did a great job (against Temple), we rushed for whatever many yards, we had three guys (over 100), whatever. But it doesn't guarantee anything against Georgia.' The No. 24-ranked Irish (1-0) host the No. 15 Bulldogs (1-0) on Saturday night. While finding yards against Georgia figures to be tougher than against Temple, Notre Dame can't help but be encouraged by its season-opening effort. Per school officials, the game marked the first time since at least 1954 that the Irish had three individuals eclipse 100 yards on the ground. Records beyond that are incomplete. With 606 yards of total offense, Notre Dame reached 600 for the first time since its 34-20 Fiesta Bowl loss to Ohio State in 2006. It was the first time the Irish have cracked 400 on the ground since churning out 457 against UMass during a 62-27 win in 2015. 'I mean, we have a fantastic offensive line,' Adams said. 'It's just amazing to run behind those guys. We have a lot of love for each and every guy up front and . we (as ball carriers) want to repay them for all the hard work they're putting in.' In McGlinchey and senior guard Quenton Nelson, the Irish may boast the best left side in the nation. Both are Associated Press second-team preseason All-Americans and possible first-round NFL draft picks. Center Sam Mustipher and guard Alex Bars are also returning starters. Adams was the team's leading rusher last year, with 933 yards and a 5.9 average as a sophomore. He set an ND freshman record with 835 yards — to go with a 7.1 average — in 2015. Williams, a junior, gained his 124 yards on just six attempts against Temple. Wimbush's 106 rushing yards came on 12 keepers, to go with his 184 yards through the air. New Irish offensive coordinator Chip Long's approach to the running game was evident upon his hiring, coach Brian Kelly said. 'Chip Long (talked) about a physicality and a demeanor running the football,' Kelly said. 'It wasn't about how many yards we were going to amass in total offense. It was about how we are going to exert our will in terms of running the football. So this is really just more about creating a mindset and building on that mindset. 'We have to continue to build that mindset. But it started in January. It didn't start in August.' Of course, the same is true for Georgia. The Bulldogs have a pair of senior tailbacks in Nick Chubb and Sony Michel that Kelly describes as future NFL greats. 'They're going to feature both their backs,' Kelly predicted. 'We're going to feature our running game, and somebody's going to come out on top. It's going to be an old-fashioned kind of find out who's got the grit and determination, because somebody's going to have to find a way to run the football late and control the line of scrimmage.' ___ More college football coverage: http://collegefootball.ap.org/ and www.Twitter.com/AP_Top25
  • This weekend’s Georgia Bulldog-Notre Dame football game will be a top 25 matchup: the Dogs, after last Saturday’s season opening win over Appalachian State, are again 15th in this week’s Associated Press poll, while the Fighting Irish enter the poll at number 24. The Dogs and Irish play Saturday night in South Bend.  From Seth Emerson, AJC’s Dawg Nation... It was a fairly standard question to Georgia senior safety Dominick Sanders: What did you know about Notre Dame’s history growing up, and what did it mean to you? Sanders shrugged. The storyline didn’t interest him. “Not really, I didn’t really know anything about that,” Sanders said. “But you know, my main thing is coming out and punishing them from the start. I really don’t care about what they’ve got going on.” So, a reporter followed up, he doesn’t care about the history of Notre Dame, and its stadium, which Sanders and the Bulldogs visit on Saturday? “Oh no, no, no,” Sanders said. “I just care about my guys doing what we’ve gotta do: Punishing them from the start.” So you don’t really care, another reporter followed up? “Me personally, nah. I don’t really know anything about them and I don’t really care,” said Sanders, who was a first-team All-SEC safety in 2015. “Just my main thing is let’s put them pads on and let’s go to work.” This was after practice on Tuesday, as Georgia (1-0) prepares for one of its most highly-anticipated nonconference trips in recent memory. Georgia is a slight underdog, by 4 1/2 points at last check, and Sanders seems aware of it. “We can’t worry about what people are saying out there. A lot of people are saying we’re underdogs and all that. We don’t care about any of that,” Sanders said. “We just keep our composure and day-by-day get better, and we’ll come out and prove these people wrong on Saturday.” And if Sanders’ feelings weren’t entirely clear, he echoed them when asked another question about whether this game would have any special meaning because of the opponent and the venue. “This is just a regular game, and we’re going to come out and punish them from the start,” Sanders said. Georgia junior defensive lineman Jonathan Ledbetter also sounded a fairly confident note about the match-up with Notre Dame’s big and well-regarded offensive line. He was asked about going against offensive linemen who are being pegged as NFL prospects. “Definitely it’s exciting. You can ask any of our defensive lineman, linebackers, even all the way back to our secondary. I know everyone’s itching to get a good lick on every single one of their guys,” Ledbetter said. “Definitely respect them. But good competition is hard to come by. So when you see it and everybody’s raving about it you want to prove a point. So we’re ready to prove a point.” Earlier in the evening, Georgia coach Kirby Smart said Notre Dame may have the best offensive line they face this season. Fighting Irish offensive tackle Mike McGlinchy is 6-foot-8. The 6-4 Ledbetter was asked about going against someone that tall. “There’s always a way to beat somebody,” Ledbetter said. “Somebody will always have a weakness, and you have to find it. And we’re going to find it. And we’re going to execute off it.” Ledbetter’s overall tone was of confidence, stopping short of brash. He was also asked about whether Notre Dame quarterback Brandon Wimbush could also be a problem for Georgia’s defense, given his dual-threat ability. “We’re pretty thorough in our game-planning, so I’m not worried on their front or their quarterback being super-athletic,” Ledbetter said. “Because I know what we bring to the table, and we’re going to work as hard as we need to, to be ready for Saturday.”
