The Dawg Gone Podcast

It's that time of the year again, kids. We here at Dawg Sports and The Dawg Gone Podcast would like to take a moment to discuss the things for which we're thankful. Things like four years of Aaron Murray, the preparedness of Hutson Mason, and the ability to hate Georgia Tech with everything we have. 

To celebrate Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate Week, we brought a familiar voice back to us for an episode. The Mayor himself, T. Kyle King, joins me and we wax Dawg Poetic about Aaron Murray being one of the greatest DGDs alive, which assistant coaches might want to polish up that resume, and why Georgia Tech shouldn't considered a rival as much as a waste of our time.

Hello again, kids! One of the problems with running a podcast or blogging in general is that as soon as your team loses, there's this unbearable duty to write or talk about it. So, in this episode, I wax Dawg Poetic about the most popular open letter in the blogosphere, why Todd Grantham drives me so crazy, and why we don't need to worry at all about Kentucky this weekend (hint: they can't score).

Also, my apologies to you guys in that I had to go solo yet again. Granted, it makes for shorter shows, which you guys have remarked to me over email that you like, but I did say I wanted to have MaconDawg on this week and I couldn't get with him to make it happen. I'm in the middle of moving right now, and my nights are filled with packing rooms. Truthfully, I'm just glad I got a podcast out, because I seriously considered having to put a nix on it for the week.

Being pessimistic is what we do around here. Ever since I've started reading Dawg Sports, much less being an active contributor here, there's always been a heavy dose of Munson in our blood. However, I've always been a positive fan. For those familiar with the UGA message boards, one could label me a "Disney Dawg" in the past.

Those days are no more, it seems. From my griping about only beating Florida by three points, to the vitriol I got on Twitter after saying I thought Murray had a terrible game after North Texas, this hasn't been my season of optimism. So, in this solo episode, I fully embraced the pessimism. 

Don't get me wrong, for most of the show, I wax Dawg Poetic about how we can beat Auburn, and I throw some great stats at you that makes you think we have a puncher's chance. Then, I yank the rug right out from under you at the end, and finish it up with my "Stronger" Munson Mix, in which the chorus states, "that don't kill me, only makes me stronger." 

My name is Kit and I've finally hit rock bottom and I couldn't tell you why. The only thing that can save me is for me to be completely and blatantly wrong. Let's hope that's the case.

Hello, lovelies! You know, I think one of the signs of the apocalypse is when you complain about any win against Florida, much less one that signals the beginning of an official streak. Yet, I find myself ranting this entire episode about how unfulfilled I was in Saturday's three point win over the Gators.

Maybe it's just me. In fact, it probably is just me, but in this episode I wax Dawg Poetic in solo fashion as I ponder why we only won by three instead of 30, who might be at fault because of that, and why Aaron Murray could very well be the best thing to happen to Georgia in quite some time (you know, because we like to end on a positive note every now and then).

Hello, kids. Yep, we lost to Vanderbilt. We also lost to Missouri. We also are beat up beyond all recognition. You know what? I don't care. Every now and then the bigger picture is the next one you see, and right now, Florida's ugly mug is right in front of us.

For one week, all we'll hear about from the media is how beat up both teams are, and all we'll think about is beating the other up even worse. It's how this rivalry works.

This week, Chuck aka chuckdawg and I wax Dawg poetic about mental preparedness, punching teams in the mouth, and why it's important to win three in a row. I usually like to throw a joke in that sequence but I didn't have one this week. Turns out this game is no laughing matter. Oh, and to celebrate the occasion, I threw in a new Howard Mix for your listening pleasure. It won't be for everyone, but I like it, so there's that.

Boy, that's really going to throw off the Google indexing...

Anyway, hello again, kids! It's good to see you again, even though we both wish this were under better circumstances. It turns out that Missouri was, in fact, for real, and our Defense was not. Granted, I think we all saw this coming sooner or later, but it hurt worse than I think we all anticipated.

Due to some time constraints on my week (hint: work), I had to go solo with this edition. So, you'll get a short show* and one that finishes with a Kanye West Munson Mix**. I wax Dawg Poetic about the Missouri game, the missing Defense, and why there's still hope for a great season (another hint: rivalries matter, folks).

Hello again, kids! This week, everything sucks. Sure, it's nice to come out of Tennessee with a victory, but at what cost? Regardless of how absurd the turf is up in Neyland, and how ashamed UT fans should be because of it, the trip on Saturday showed us a lot more than what happens when this team faces adversity. It showed what happens when this team faces calamity.

So, to digest all this and help me understand why I'm so angry, we brought Chuck aka Chuckdawg on the podcast this week to wax Dawg Poetic about heart, grit, and optimism. Granted, we get a little pessimistic here and there, but I do think you'll enjoy the conversation and especially how we feel (and mainly how Chuck feels) about our game against Missouri on Saturday.

Hello, kids! Yes, I was wrong when I predicted that Georgia would lose to LSU 38-31. You can call it a case of the "Munson's" or you can say I'm just flat-out faithless, but I can assure you that I couldn't be happier about it. After the Dawgs won an instant classic 44-41, I don't think anyone in the Bulldog Nation is concerned with holding my pessimistic prediction against me. 

To celebrate, I brought Macondawg on the show this week and we waxed Dawg Poetic about how big the LSU win was, how important the Tennessee game is, and why the future looks very bright if a win in Knoxville comes to pass. 

Oh yeah, and you get a new "Munson Mix" (even though it's all Scott Howard's calls from the LSU game) as promised. 

One last thing: please forgive the audio quality of the segment with me and Macondawg. We're living and learning right now with new recording methods. I like the simplicity of the way I was able to record it, but I'm going to tinker with it and see if I can find a better end result in the sound. Stick with us. We're almost there.

Hello again, kids! You remember last week when I said that I was only going to have one solo show after the unintended hiatus? Well, I was wrong. 

After a small technical snafu that I *hope* to have corrected in the near future, you're getting another solo effort this week before what could arguably be the biggest game of the year. Never fear, though. The show has a lot of Ludakit, but also has some great nuggets that will make you feel as pessimistic about Saturday as I do.

Yes, I said pessimistic. Some could say it feels downright "Munson-esque." This week, I wax Dawg Poetic about why we're not only trying to beat LSU, who is 16-12-1 against UGA all time, but also trying to create some history, as we've never beaten two top ten teams in Sanford in the history of UGA football. You know, as in EVER.

However, I could be wrong. Remember, I'm the guy that wasn't going to do a solo show two weeks in a row...

Before I begin, another special thank you to 1 Beer 1 Song, who so graciously offered their space to me before the season began. Those guys are awesome. Check them out.

Hello again, kids! It's great to have a podcast to once again post up. After quite the delay in recovering some items taken from me in my recent burglary, I've finally got enough equipment back to put out a very, very rusty podcast. SPOILER ALERT: You can tell that I'm certainly not in game shape. 

Unfortunately, I had to fly solo this week because of some changes to the MacBook line, and I currently have no way to receive audio input in the method that I was using previously. So, no Chuck or Macondawg this week, but I can assure you that the necessary steps will be taken to correct it.

What you get in return is a very rusty, and quite short episode, which is probably something you guys want anyway, since after all, we're playing North Texas this week. I wax Dawg Poetic about what we need to do to win, what I've noticed in the three weeks of the Georgia Football Season (albeit only two of those weeks have had games), and how nicely the schedule sets up for us after these next three games.

Pardon my rust and rambling, but I will say that it's nice to be back.
