Not the player strike we were expecting

There is a good bit of racial tension swirling about the campus of the University of Missouri, as evidenced by this Washington Post story.

Some of the football team has decided to up the ante.

The athletes of color on the University of Missouri football team truly believe “Injustice Anywhere is a threat to Justice Everywhere” We will no longer participate in any football related activities until President Tim Wolfe resigns or is removed due to his negligence toward marginalized students’ experiences. WE ARE UNITED!!!!!

No idea where this is heading… but if a football team can take down a school president, I imagine that going to shake up more than a few people.

Kentucky:  good for what ails ‘ya

That’s one way to minimize shaky quarterback play.

Why we can’t have nice things… like touchdowns.

If I were a Georgia receiver, it would be really hard not to say, “coach, WTF?”.

It’s the early bird that catches the game day post.

Nooners mean early departures for Athens, which means you get my final thoughts sooner than later.

With all the angst and drama of the week, the game today seems almost anticlimactic… but I’m guessing the staff and team don’t feel that way.

It really shouldn’t be like that for us either, though.  It’s not as if there aren’t things to discover today.  I mean, when’s the last time Georgia entered its ninth game of a season where much of the fan base was wondering if the offense would score a touchdown and who would be tapped to start at quarterback? (For the record, I’ll say “yes” and “Brice Ramsey”.)

On paper, the game should be something of a snoozer.  Kentucky, as I noted yesterday, is worse on both offense and defense than Georgia.  It, too, has lost three of its last four games.  It’s best offensive player, Boom Williams, isn’t expected to play.  And Georgia is simply the more talented of the two teams.

But, as the cliché goes, they don’t play the game on paper, and the intangibles for this one are unnerving for the Dawgs.  How will they react when that inevitable “oh, shit” moment comes?  That hasn’t exactly been their strong suit over the last four games.

Maybe that means the real key to today is whether there’s a second quarter meltdown.

I hope Georgia wins and does so in a way that the players can feel good about it.  If nothing else, they deserve that.

Musical palate cleanser, program theme edition

Gee, I wonder why this Byrds tune popped into my head yesterday – from 1966, enjoy “Psychodrama City”.
