Two of the bigger debates that have cropped up in my Twitter feed over the past week are (1) who is and who isn’t a DGD; and (2) whether Alabama or Oklahoma gets to take credit for Jalen Hurts.
I should probably go back to bed now.

As soon as I read that, I heard the rim shot in my head.
It was kinda korny, wasn’t it.
Nothing wrong with korny
He’ll be here all well ladies and gentlemen.
We’re headed there 1st of May along with Paris, Bucharest and Bulgaria. I fully intend to spread #GoDawgs around Europe. First stop will be to carve our winning scores over ND on the renovated doors of the cathedral so that history is preserved for the ages.

If you carve that, FPD? Your status as a DGD will never be in question.
I’d call you a hero.
Pics or it didn’t happen.
I’m going to need to borrow some night ops gear then.
What? You don’t already have your own NVDs?
Boy, you ain’t gon be ready for the hard times.
I guess some of Dawgs are going on the Grand Tour…me and my motley crew are headed to France and Italy end of March through early April…I plan on walking around with a baguette shoved in my cargo shorts so I won’t look like a tourist
We’re going Prague, Cesky Krumlov, Budapest, visit some friends in Bad Gleicheberg AU, then on to Croatia. 30th anniversary trip!
46 days till the time change…
I would imagine it is a very good thing then, Senator, that you probably are not reading the college football subreddit on Reddit, r/CFB. Those Twitter discussions seem high-minded by comparison.
Earlier in the season, that sub was taken over by Tennessee fans posting shit about Hooker and playoff aspirations on a daily basis. It warms my heart to see zero of it on the front page now.
This DGD discussion is based on what is Mitchell’s legacy at UGA after his decision to go to Texas. It’s definitely a personal criteria when throwing that term around. I’ll admit I have a high standard for that designation personally.
Hard concur – its difficult to put someone in the top tier when they leave for a competitor…. He’s a good player, appreciate all he did and hope it works out the best for him. Plus there’s a chance Texas is back (again) next year and we meet up with them, and now everyone who’s crowned him treats him like a heel, which isn’t good for anyone IMO….
I compare him with Dom Blaylock. Dom fought through 2 injuries, kept working and playing and is supposed to graduate in May before transferring. He goes down as a DGD in my book. Mitchell was a clutch player for us, but this decision to me keeps me from using the term for him. Of course, YMMV.
Which, in my useless opinion, is what colors my thoughts on the other “debate”. Hurts graduated from Bama, was a grad transfer to OU. As far as I’m concerned he’s a Bammer first. For what little that’s worth…
I agree with that.
Granted his AWOL in the 2022 season recap hype video put out by the team… I’d say there’s an answer there.
Here a good one to ponder – How can Steston not have a 4 year degree yet? He’s been in school long enough to have a phd.
Changed his major twice- from Philosophy to History and then from History to Economics. Plus the JUCO credits he earned did not count in Athens. Add to that he likely takes a minimum load in the fall (as did I when I was a scholarship athlete).
Hell, he could be in post doctoral studies now.
At least nobody is going to say: 6 years of college down the drain!
It took me 9 years to get my undergrad, MEd when I was 50 and 6 to get my doc! T
I thought he was in grad school now, but I just noticed his jersey doesn’t have the graduate patch on it.
7 years of college, down the drain….
He’s definitely not in graduate school.
Hey, leave our Van Wilder quarterback out of this.
This does not make me rethink my decision to get rid of my Twitter account a few years ago.
I know you can’t for obvious reasons, but getting rid of Twitter did loads of good for my blood pressure, mental health, and overall outlook on life, Senator.
I got rid of my Twitter account and haven’t missed it (other than a Go Dawgs! tweet from Kirby).
Yeah, it’s been over two years for me, and the one thing I’ve found is I’m happier.
Social Media, in any form, is the single-worst invention in human history. I believe that.
I closed my business about the time of the demise of the Playpen. That along with Covid social distancing and the requisite isolation it entails and I haven’t had to talk to anyone online or in person for the last two years unless I wanted to. I’ve never been happier.
Get the fuck off my lawn.
Never had, and never will have the damn twitter.
If I want your opinion, I’ll ask for it.
If I don’t ask, I don’t give a phuq about it!

((^^)) that’s the best I can do for a digital fist wave.
Wait until you meet AI!
Senator, you could expand the blog to cover UGA’s other great sport where we excel….golf. 😜 Derek vs Corch over impact of the LIV tour will be lit.
If you follow any golf pages on social media, most of the commenters who support LIV are the worst. I don’t think I could spend 4 hours on the course with any of them.
Personally, I don’t care about LIV, but the whining from the players that the PGA Tour should ignore the membership agreements they signed, so they can play is ridiculous.
I read a comment on 247 where a guy is going to rewatch one game per week, with a bye, and it will end up with no gaps until the opener.
Ain’t rewatching Mizzu!!
Don’t forget all the Ohio State types, and Corch, claiming credit for Jow Burrow.
Jalen Hurts played for and won championships at Alabama. Crimson Tide fans claiming part of his NFL legacy as being Built By Bama (TM) is apples to oranges compared with Ohio State fans claiming any part of Joe Burrow’s just because he used to locker and shower there while watching other people play quarterback for the Buckeyes on Saturdays. Hilarious.
To hell with all of those pretentious crimson wearing a-holes (both bama and an osu). Real men and women wear red, not crimson.
Ohio State calls it scarlet.
Sry, I do that.
Well, Scarlett was Rhett’s bitch so there is that.
And she was a bitch. True that.
Frankly my dear
The DGD debate has been on my Twitter, too, and I’ve avoided it. I have my own personal standards for who I call a Damn Good Dawg – but if someone else’s standards aren’t the same as my own, why in the Hell am I going to reach out and try to shout them down about it? Jeez – people can have an opinion that’s different from my own about a player and their rightful place in the pantheon of those who have played all or part of their career at UGA.
Speaking of college football Twitter, has anyone checked on Ms. Auerbach mental state since SBIV won the Manning Award?
