Glad I didn’t bother, apparently I wasn’t the only one

It seems awfully early in the basketball season to get snarky, but when you lose 76-42 to a team that is generally considered to be your equivalent in the Big 10 it is probably all you can do.

Illinois is supposed to be in yet another rebuilding season.   They looked like world beaters against the Dawgs today in Chicago.  The score was closer than the game was.  The Dawgs looked over matched from the tip, only shooting 35 %.  After pulling to within seven right before half, the Dawgs only scored 19 points in the second half.  The Dawgs turned the ball over 27 times to the Illini’s 13 times.  Terrance Woodbury was the only Georgia player in double figures with 13.  It was a typical Georgia basketball performance, with lackadaisical passing, no hustle and very little body or ball movement to set up solid looks.

To compound the misery of this basketball season, the Lady Dawgs lost to Tech 57-42 last night in Atlanta for just the third time ever.  While the series record is 28-3, the teams are 3-3 in the last six.

The Lady Dawgs have their work cut out for them on Monday at 15th ranked Rutgers in the Jimmy V Basketball Classic.  The men host Virginia Tech on Tuesday in Athens.

Go Dawgs.

A Georgia Dawg in the Mid-West alone with his thoughts.

BBQ, Ball and Bets

There's nothing like a sunny fall afternoon, pork BBQ (with mustard sauce, of course!), a pregame tailgate, and...betting online. You heard me right. With a laptop and an internet connection you can check the odds of any game from the 50 yard line. Now that's convenience and will make your tailgate all the more interesting when some dude mentions just how much of a good bet a certain game is.
