Is this really necessary?

I mean, is it?

Actually, I could go for it, if you’d take the Gator off and substitute in its place this:

Tom Lemming ♥ Notre Dame

Seriously, he and Charlie Weis ought to go off and get a room so Lemming can consummate his love for all things Irish. Maybe make it a threesome with Corwin Brown.

Just not in public, okay? Yuck.

Random, tasty bits of Dawgy goodness

College Football News has its 2007 Georgia preview up, and it’s a pretty decent job all the way around. Fiutak is very high on Trinton Sturdivant, whom he ranks – after one spring football session – as the fifth best player on the team. He lists Reshad Jones, who’s never played in a college game yet, either, at number 7.

In noting that it will be a successful year if Georgia wins 10 games, he also identifies the concerns accurately, as this paragraph about the defense indicates:

Defensive coordinator Willie Martinez has his work cut out for him. After losing star corner Paul Oliver to academic ineligibility, the defense is woefully short on sure-thing veteran stars with only three returning starters. There’s plenty of potential, speed, and athleticism, but several things have to happen for this to be nearly as good as the number eight defense it was last year. The pass rush should be there in time, but it might take the wheels of outside linebackers Darius Dewberry and Dannell Ellerbe to generate some consistent pressure early on. The secondary needs to unearth more big play options, and a number one corner has to quickly emerge. While undersized, the line is tough and should grow into a rock as the year goes on. This will be a far, far better defense after a few games. By then the coaching staff will have the right combination.

I think that’s right. Of course, it’s more than a little scary that the season opens with two schools who have former Florida offensive coordinators who have had some measure of success against Georgia defenses in the past.

By the way, I got my copy of Phil Steele’s 2007 SEC Preview in the mail yesterday (I know, I know…) and he does update his Georgia analysis to take into account Paul Oliver’s departure. He drops the Georgia secondary to third best in the conference – but he still picks the Dawgs to win the SEC East. Barely.

Loran Smith has a nice interview with one of my favorite Bulldogs of all time. Hines sounds like he’s still all Dawg.

I really like this feat of Photoshoppery, lifted from Georgia Sports Blog

… where Paul Westerdawg notes that when it comes to consecutive wins in Knoxville, Mark Richt is in some pretty good company.

And Groo catches the AJ-C with its virtual pants down in its never-ending efforts at potstirring, in this case with Georgia-Georgia Tech fans over Athlon’s preseason rankings (Athlon’s ? Who really cares?). Bonus points, and lots of ‘em, for the gratuitous Reggie Ball reference. Good show!
