    "If you want to know why Georgia is the best program in college football at the moment..."

    I feel ya. Even the way things are going these days, after 50+ years of Dawg fandoming, I still hesitate to go all in.

    Kirby is The Hardest Working Man in College Football. His players follow his lead.

    @connor. One of your best pieces. Enjoyable to read and with the exception of a couple of sentences where you reverted to what is a normal Connor style, seemed like you have upped your journalism game!!

    @Oldddawg76 I hear you. We “used” to have a saying.

    ”I want 3 Falcons and 3 bulldogs as my pallbearers — they have plenty if experience letting me down”

    Looking forward to many continued years of success with the Dawgs. And now I need 6 Falcons.

    A lot of work and tough love. I see why some players leave (Their loss) and why those who stay thrive at UGA and afterwards. GO DAWGS!

    I wonder if we lost players like Brenton Cox, Jermaine Burton, etc. because they weren’t tough enough. I know they try to act like they left for more playing time, but comments like those from the Gator coach saying Cox was dismissed for “cumulative reasons” gives me pause and helps me realize Cox may have had other issues at UGA than just wanting more playing time. Some of our “lost” players are likely in the long run “gains” for the team. If you can’t take the heat then get out of the kitchen. Go Dawgs!!!

    Watched ESPN's recap of the UGA -Vols game Monday night. IT was one of those Mic'ed up deals or just had the boom on CKS before game, a little during and then after the game. Pregame speech(a snippet) and then what what he told the guys afetrwards in the locker room If you get the chance it's worth your time. Showed Kirby greeting and thanking former Dawgs like Nakobe, Quay Walker( I think) ane showed him complimenting George Pickens on his great catch.

    After he gave his speechthere was a congratulatry exchange between Kirby and his son. Wow! The kid is a chip off the old block! He was like a passionate minature Kirby, maybe even more so!

    I chuckle when I hear members of the national press comparing UGA to Bama and Kirby to Saban. Bama has not been the same since Kirby left, especially on defense. Saban may have been the brain, but Kirby was the heart and soul of the Tide

    A player saying UGA is much more physical than Bama is very telling. It took a few years for Kirby to establish his culture of being the biggest and baddest regardless of who is across the line of scrimmage, but now, it’s every other team, including Bama, wanting to match Georgia’s toughness and physicality that Kirby has preached from day one.
