Hello kids. There's no need for a fancy intro, or waxing any Dawg Poetic about this show. This show is entirely dedicated to the one and only, Larry Munson.
In this show, we have three new Munson Mixes for you, as the best way I know to pay tribute to Larry is to make those mixes. We also have snippets of Verron Haynes, Tony Barnhart, and our very own Kyle King paying their own tributes to Larry.
The three Munson Mixes each have their own feel to them. The first is what I call "Cocktail Party Rock Anthem" and is a mashup of the most famous of Larry's extensive catalogue, Run Lindsay.
The second Munson Mix is about the 2002 SEC Championship team and is set to Foo Fighters' The Pretender. That team never gave up and never surrendered, which is the theme to that tune.
The last Munson Mix has quickly become one of my favorites out of all that I have done. Keeping with the Foo Fighters, this one is set to Times Like These and is a collection of my own personal favorite Munson calls from his entire career.
At the very end of the show, you'll get exactly 1:17 of radio silence, which is the length of the Run Lindsay call, and is the best way I personally know to pay tribute to him, as there will be another one like him.

Hello kids! Sorry the podcast is late this week. It turns out that while podcasting is quite fun, it's my 8-5 life that actually pays the bills, and this week has been extra 8-5'y.
This week, Kyle and I wax Dawg Poetic about the SEC Championship game, preview the Peloponnesian War, and quotes the Nostradamus of our time, Eminem, when Kyle asks "Will the real Georgia Bulldogs please stand up?"
Before I get you guys to the links, I want to first thank Munson's Marbles for providing us with an extremely cool "Hooray Podcast!" picture. It's always down in the comments, but as this is one of the final podcasts relating to football of the season, I wanted to give him special thanks for putting that together. It's awesome.
Also, I wanted to thank you guys for making this podcast as popular as it is. It completely warms my heart when I log onto iTunes and I see us competing closely with (and sometimes beating) other podcasts like the official B1G Ten Podcast, Georgia Tech's official podcast, and some of the larger media members' podcasts. It's just awesome. Yes, I'm looking forward to having a couple weeks off here and there in the offseason, but I really enjoy doing this and that's mainly because you enjoy listening to it. So thank you.

Hello again, kids. How do we follow up a record-setting Show 34? We just spend some time talking to Mr. College Football himself, Tony Barnhart.
Tony was nice enough to spend some time talking with us about his newest book, Always A Bulldog: Players, Coaches, and Fans Share Their Passion for Georgia Football. In the segment, we cover the book in great detail and we also wax a little Dawg Poetic about the largely ignored game this weekend in Atlanta. Now, I have to say that I come across as a total fan of the book, and I'm not going to lie, I really mean it. This is a FANTASTIC read for anyone who's fell in love with UGA, Athens, and what it means to be a Bulldog. You can order the book here, as well as buy it anywhere books are sold. Trust me, it's worth every penny.
After that, Chuck, aka "Good Luck Chuck", aka tankertoad, and I wax some great Dawg Poetic about the win over Georgia Tech, BCS chaos, and why winning this weekend is really as simple as scoring more points than LSU. In my opinion, it's one of the best conversations about football Chuck and I have had, and it really has that "front porch football talk" feel to it that I love having on the show. I think it's a great listen.

The Dawg Gone Podcast Show 34 is ready and misses Larry Munson, HATES Georgia Tech, and lets you hear why.
Hello kids. This was a tough show to put together. Unfortunately, there just weren't enough hours in the day to put out a full tribute to Larry Munson like I'm wanting to do. Kyle and I do pay tribute, but it's not enough. Soon, a special episode will be coming that includes new Munson Mixes, our thoughts on Munson, and a special goodbye that I've had planned for a while.
But for now, we must focus on the task at hand, as Larry would want us to do, and beat the crap out of Georgia Tech on Saturday. This episode is your guidebook to doing that.
In the first segment, Radi Nabulsi with ESPN DawgNation joins us and we talk about this season, the Kentucky game, and the Georgia Tech game. In the second segment, I'm sure you guys have seen the classlessness over at Sting Talk (and I refuse to link them from here because they don't deserve the massive amounts of hits we get on a daily basis), and so I brought one of their own on the show to state his case. Spoiler Alert, you'll be madder than you were before, but I think it's important for them to openly say what in the heck they were thinking, and you'll get that and more.
In the final segment, Kyle and I wax Dawg Poetic over the passing of Larry (and Kyle has some beautiful words regarding that), the Kentucky game, some X's and O's in beating Georgia Tech, and why we as a Dawg Nation should take the gloves off for this game.
I hope you enjoy it and although it's long, I really hope you find some insight in it. You want to know why I consider Georgia Tech the worst of the worst? It's in this episode.

Hello again kids. It's true. The Dawg Gone Podcast staff, meaning myself, really doesn't like Auburn, its band, or its fans. Let's just get used to the idea that they are indeed the Georgia Tech of the SEC, and that's not a compliment in any shape, form, or fashion.
What's on tap for this week? Well, since I only bring the best for you, darlings, the show has two segments this week. In the first segment, UGA Legend Robert Edwards joins us to wax Dawg Poetic about what he's up to now, who his most hated rival was while he was at UGA, his upcoming book, and how you can help him help kids. Helping kids, you ask? Yes, Mr. Edwards runs the Star Training Academy and they're looking for a few good sponsors. You can find them at www.startrainingacademy.com and you can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to help.
In the second segment. Chuck, aka tankertoad, and I wax Dawg Poetic (I just really love saying that) about the big win this weekend, how Mike Bobo has won our hearts, and why does Auburn's band always play over the Redcoats?

The Dawg Gone Podcast Show 32 is ready and wants to remind you that Haters Gonna Hate and Auburns Gonna Auburn
Hello again kids. I know it's shortly before 11:00 AM when this gets posted, but since I stayed up until 2:00 AM mixing it down to have it ready today, please forgive me if there's not an overwhelmingly hilarious intro before the links. It turns out I'm not very funny when I feel like an extra on The Walking Dead.
Anyway, this week Kyle and I wax Dawg Poetic about why we hate Auburn (and it turns out that we really do hate them a lot), why you should never believe anything after hearing the words "Hi, I'm Kirk Herbstreit.", and why does it seem like Kit isn't talking that much in this episode?
Well, the reason for the last one is simple. I had some audio issues that popped up in the segment with Kyle and they pretty much kept me working tirelessly trying to get this thing posted in time. You'll hear some echo towards the middle of the segment, but it's only on my end. You'll probably also hear me clicking my mouse some, but I muted the part where I threw my computer against the wall. I'm only half kidding.
So, I apologize for any audio issues, but don't let that take away from anything Kyle said. He was killing it this week and when the man says he hates Auburn, trust me, he means it.

Hello again, kids. Are you confused by the title of the podcast for this week? Is that any different than any other time I post the title of the podcast? Much like the previous episodes, once you listen, it'll all make sense.
This week's podcast has Kyle and I waxing Dawg Poetic about the win against the Gators, our flat giddiness watching the Dawgs' defense, and why Mike Bobo is and isn't the devil at the same time. We really did try to keep the conversation short, but when examining each aspect of this year's team, no conversation is ever cut and dry.
Finally, before I give you the links to this week's offering, I want to thank you guys for the rave reviews we got about last week's show, aka the Dawg Sports Roundtable. Not only did it set the new record for the most downloaded episode, but you guys went out of your way to tell me how much you loved it, which means a lot. No seriously, it means a bunch so you can stop doing that "hand wanking" motion as you read this. This is why we can't have nice things.

Hello again kids! When I started this podcast last year, I always wanted to get some of the greatest minds together to talk Dawg football. Since then, I've been able to get some great guests, but only one at a time. This time, that's all changed.
Nearly every staff member of Dawg Sports was able to join me on conference call to talk this weekend's contest in Jacksonville. That's right, there's a double-digit worth of Dawg Pontificators on this call and they all chime in on everything from "Will John Brantley play?" to "Why do we hate Florida so very much?"
What's particularly impressive about this episode is its content. EVERYONE brings their "A" game and I implore you to really listen intently to their responses to my questions. It's truly great stuff and I wouldn't lie to you, buttercup.

The Dawg Gone Podcast Show 29 is ready and has a special announcement from Todd Grantham about Dennis Hopper's pets.
Hello again kids. Are you confused by the title of today's post? Listen to the show and it will (kind of) make sense.
Sorry for the podcast being a day late, but I had the opportunity to have the great Rex Robinson on with us this week in a bonus segment, and couldn't get to it until Tuesday. However, I think the wait will be totally worth it once you hear the show.
This week, I have the aforementioned Rex Robinson on to talk about what could possibly be going on in the UGA locker room as they experience success after the dreadful 2010 season, the Curious Case of Blair Walsh, and how special teams is a lot like golf.
Then, we have a special Public Service Announcement from Todd Grantham, and you'd better listen to what he says. No, seriously. I don't think he's kidding.
In the final segment, Kyle rejoins us after a week off and proves that Nyquil can't hold him down as we wax Dawg Poetic about the win against Vanderbilt, why Mark Fox shouldn't fight Kevin Stallings no matter how much we'd enjoy it, and what exactly is Zombie Dennis Hopper doing in Vanderbilt's gym?

Hello again kids. The Dawgs got a HUGE win this weekend against the Tennessee Volunteers and although everyone would've liked to have seen an old-school blowout, a win is a win, and this one was important.
This week, we give Kyle the night off and Good Luck Chuck, aka tankertoad, steps in and knocks it out of the park. I really think you guys will enjoy this episode as we wax Dawg Poetic on everything from breaking down the Tennessee game, how far along Malcom Mitchell is as a playmaking WR, why the referees hate us so very much, and why Vandy is still Vandy.
I think you guys are going to love this episode, and, as you'll hear from me in the intro, the gauntlet has been thrown to the "other" podcast out there, who claims to be "twice as good" as any other Dawg podcast on the airwaves.
Your move, sirs.
