Today, in GTP book plugs

If, like me, you are a grizzled veteran of the UGA Internet world, you’ll be more than interested in reading Rob Suggs’ latest opus, Sax Attacks!, which promises “a full and fascinating history of the Dawgvent itself”.

Hmmm.  I wonder what the over/under is on Rolo mentions.

    He is a talented writer, and I especially remember his material from the early 00’s days. One post of his that comes to mind was him making fun if SCU fans and their “wait till next year!” attitude. Sax basically said he was going to write a book called: If only…the greatest Gamecock seasons that almost came to be.

    I also remember him following up on this and saying he was going to make SCU t-shirts, with excuses on the back as to why they lost that particular game. A few excuses I remember were something like…”you better thank your lucky stars for that freak play your guy made and that last minute fumble.” Stuff like that.

    Also, is the Dawgvent still a thing?



    HOTD is where it’s at.

      Have read it before, more cliquish there than the old vent. Reminds me more of the old coffee shop. Nothing wrong with it, just not my thing. More about football here, I have been reading this place for years….and very much appreciate it.

        Speaking of racism, what happened to Pulpwood Smith’s commentaries? His comments on Georgia being excluded from the BCS in 2007 were epic.

    Severedhead was the best part of the dawgvent.

    Rolo. I had forgotten that name but was trying to remember it just the other day as I was reading that UGA Thomas Brown you linked to. I was wondering if it was the same person haha.


  8. The old original DawgVent was a great place … most of the time. Your commenters here remind me of most of the positives about that community.

      There really were some great posters and humor back in the day. For me, it started going downhill about 7-8 years ago – maybe longer
      – and I haven’t ventured back over there for at least 5 years or so.

      Back in the earlier day of the internet, some of you might remember The Grapevine, which covered UGA recruiting. I’ve never been all that much into recruiting, but as a UGA student at the time, the upcoming ’98 class was being raved about, so I became a bit of a regular there for a while.

    To each his own, but I never, ever understood the fascination w/ the Ooga posts. Good for him to be published yet again, though.

    The original dawg vent on !! Those were the days

    “Four Notes on a Trumpet: The Tech Experience” was fantastic.
