The Dawg Gone Podcast

Hello again, kids! Got a solo episode on tap for you guys today. I would've had it up a little sooner for you, but the Michael Adams news broke, and news like that demands you hit the record button for a second time.

So, what do I wax Dawg Poetic about in this episode? Obviously the Adams news, Hines Ward wanting to coach at UGA, why 2012-13 is a year of tough conversations for Greg McGarity, the newest info on Bubba Blitz, and why my wife is going to be so pissed at me by the end of the episode. Also, long sentences, like the one you just read...my English teacher is so disappointed right now.

Hello kids! Here at the Dawg Sports we love all different kinds of things. Things like America, fireworks, UGA, America, free beer, America, and former Dawgs named Bubba.

The latter part of that is what we want to bring to your attention today. Sure, in this most recent episode of the Dawg Gone Podcast, Kyle and I wax Dawg poetic about a lot of things from G-day, to Bubba Watson's win at The Masters, and top it off with some Bobby Petrino talk. However, one thing we can't seem to shake is this desire to have Bubba Watson on the show talking to you, the faithful Dawg fans who have followed him his whole career. 

So with that, we're launching the Bubba Blitz. What we need you to do is to reach out to Bubba either via his Twitter handle (twitter.com/bubbawatson) or his Facebook page (Facebook.com/bubbawatsongolf) and tell him you want to hear him on The Dawg Gone Podcast. Now, since we're all fans, be as nice as possible when requesting this. We're certainly not demanding anything, but we do want to encourage Bubba to come on and speak directly to the Dawg fans who have been such faithful supporters of his over the years. 

So that's the Bubba Blitz. If you don't do it for yourself. Do it for America.

Hello again kids. If the title doesn't strike a chord with you and you were a fan of the writing on the West Wing, then I implore you to give Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip a try when you have the chance. You only get one season, but still, the West Coast Delay episode is one worth watching and gives us the title of this posting.

This week, Chuck aka tankertoad, joined us for what I thought would be a quick chat about Spring Practice after the first full week. Instead we went bigger picture and waxed Dawg Poetic about what just one little week means towards the bigger picture. It ended up being a great conversation and one I think you all will enjoy.

Hello again, kids! Yes, I'm back after a wedding, honeymoon and post-bachelor party out in Las Vegas to give you a podcast with nothing but me talking for 30 minutes! Your excitement at that news is totally palpable. Except for those who are totally disappointed at hearing that neither Kyle or Chuck are joining me in this episode. For that, I'm truly sorry and will remedy it soon when there's a lot more to talk about.

In this episode, I wax Dawg Poetic about Fox's Hounds, the opening day of Spring Practice, Jarvis Jones being the lead dog, the stupidity of Branden Smith, and much more.

Hello kids! Yes, after about a month-long layoff the DGP is back and better than ever with a double (DOUBLE!) feature, meaning we have The Mayor, Kyle King, on the show as well as Chuck aka tankertoad. So yes, we'll be talking about Mike Bobo.

This is the "season finale" of the 2012 season, as we wax Dawg Poetic about Michigan State, the plethora of running backs we'll have on campus next year, what positions the Dawgs need to fill to round out a great 2012 recruiting class, and why Mike Bobo is a lot like the 1990s sitcom "Herman's Head."

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.

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 startrainingacademy@gmail.com 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?
