The Dawg Gone Podcast (uga football)

Well hello, kids! After last week's show, I'm just glad you guys stuck around to hear me ramble on for yet another week. Don't worry, the checks are in the mail.

This week, I wax my own Dawg Poetic about why Vegas is wrong about UGA this weekend, how Georgia and Tennessee's defenses are bizarro twins, and how Tennessee is like a guy at your house party with no shirt on and wants to do a whole bunch of shots.

If you're confused, don't worry, it's on purpose and is really just a tease to get you to listen in.

Hello kids. I should probably be ashamed of myself because this is a podcast where I just rant for a good little while, and offer nothing but said ranting (and some raving as well). I don't know what to tell you, but it felt good.

...and because I did that, I'm officially done talking about it.

In fairness, though, let's just say that Jeremy Pruitt is a very truthful individual. Stick around to the end to find out what I'm talking about.

Let me get you some links so that you can be done talking about it as well:

Good morrow, chaps! In this episode of the Dawg Gone Podcast, I wax Dawg Poetic about how Twitter will help us win on Saturday, how we're actually not going to win on Saturday, and how we may be able to win on Saturday if Jeremy Pruitt can summon the Ghost of Erk Russell. 

To say that I would be extremely pessimistic would be an understatement of the year, because right now, I see no good scenarios in Columbia, and even the ones that are good couldn't save me from the heartbreak I know is eventually coming. You see, my strategy is to hopefully be proven wrong all year. I'm doing well so far.

Hello again, kids! Usually, the bye week doesn't come for quite a while, so when it rolls around, I typically enjoy a week off. All that said, how could I be silent after we just did that to Clemson? The same Clemson team (well, not the same) that beat Ohio State in the Orange Bowl last year? 

So, in this episode, I wax Dawg Poetic about tempered expectations, bottled optimism, and the healing power of Todd Gurley's tears. Forgive me rambling a bit, as I didn't want to give away too much from the show next week and talk about how important the USC game is. The good news is that it's a shorter show and it's all good news....for once.

When it comes down to it, all good things must come to an end. In this episode of the DGP, we spend a lot of time talking about the finality of things. From finally getting rid of Todd Grantham, to kicking certain kids off the team, to this being the last season of the DGP in general, I spend a lot of time talking about the end.

You know what's not coming to an end? Georgia winning football games. In fact, I think Saturday is going to be the beginning of some very good days ahead for the Dawgs.

Bear with me, kids. This show is as rusty as I am, and I promise to put a good product out there before my last episode, but don't expect much until then, OK?

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.
