A couple of PSAs for you, Dawgnation:
The folks behind the 1980 Dawgs DVD are back and want you to come see them this weekend. It’s not like you won’t have time before the 7:45 game start.
Members of the 1980 National Championship Bulldogs will be joining Filmmaker/Director, Lenny Daniel, in Athens this weekend to promote the “1980 Dawgs” Documentary Film project. They will be talking with fans and signing autographs at the Red Zone in downtown Athens, Saturday, 1pm – 4pm.
So far, confirmed are 2-time All American, Rex Robinson #5 and All American Freddie Gilbert # 90, one of the best UGA defensive players of all time. Other members of the 1980 Dawgs team have also been invited.
Fans, their families and kids really enjoy these events. The former players from this special group show a humble graciousness about their past and enjoy meeting fans, talking football and joking around. The 1980 players are now at the age where remember their playing years well and they don’t mind “letting their hair down” and talking with fans about what it was really like to be part of that special team. They will also give their views on current Bulldogs football.

And Hoppy, our man in Montana, needs your help with another matter.
There is a Facebook page pushing ESPN’s College GameDay to come to Missoula, MT for the annual Cat/Griz game in November. College Game Day has never been to Montana. The Cats (Montana State) are currently #2 in the FCS poll and the Griz have a storied tradition as well.
The nickname of this game is “The Brawl of the Wild” and it dates back over 100 years.
I would just love to see GameDay come to Montana, and I know a big push from the Dawgnation would certainly boost the numbers for this cause.
Step it up, peeps. Montana came through for us. We can return the favor.
