From the cornfield – special headin’ south edition

Good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise, Saturday evening, I’ll roll big pimpin’ style into Southeast Georgia.  By big pimpin’ I don’t mean like Auburn or even Mack.  I mean, me and the three kids are packing up the Wagon Queen Family Truckster and heading South.

You think you hate it now, wait unitl you drive it.

You think you hate it now, wait unitl you drive it.

So anyway….

  • The Braves say buhbye to Tom Glavine.  I am not so sure how I feel about this.  On one hand, you’d like to think Frank Wren worked out something with Glavine first, because, you know, he kinda deserves that.  On the other, I am not so sure Frank Wren has any idea what he is doing.
  • Speaking of Glavine: Thanks for being a Brave.  You nearly single handedly made me think folks from Boston are cool.
  • Gordon Beckham, Chicago White Sox. Good luck, Gordo.  You are a DGD.
  • Rex Robinson explains kicking and how it has changed.  Paul Westerdawg says get off Blair Walsh’s back.  The Senator uses numbers to prove a point.  So nothing is different, but we are all smarter for it.
  • Bwahahahaha.  Funny thing, though.  The Illinois fans are pissed.  They really enjoyed kicking the season off there and thought there was nothing but good to come from playing a border rival in a border city, even if they aren’t very successful there in the recent past.  I don’t often say this, but the Illinois fans have it right.
  • Speaking of Illinois, Steele likes them.  I hope his bowl matchup prediction is wrong.  I will get so little joy from Georgia winning an Outback Bowl against them (they’ll just shrug and ask what time the basketball game is, similar to my reaction after this debacle) and will have to leave the state if the Dawgs lose it (so there is an upside of sorts).

So I am signing out for a few days.  I’ll be checking in from South Georgia here and there, but last one out of Illinois, don’t forget to turn off the lights.

A little Family Guy to keep you company:

    Welcome back to the homeland. Judging from the way you roll…I guess we’ll hear you when you get here.

    Safe travel.

    As to Illinois v. Mizzou, I’m not a big fan of neutral site games outside of the Red River and Cocktail Party, so I have no problem with it. I was at last year’s game, and I wouldn’t call it a great scene or some “can’t miss event” for the fans. And it was in St. Louis. And I don’t like domes. And I don’t consider either team really that relevant – this is slightly above Colorado and Colorado State having some annual showdown in Denver.

    So I think it’s a good idea. As a pseudo-Illinois fan, they can’t even beat Western Michigan on a neutral site, so I’m not sure they should be playing real teams on a neutral site every year. They need to take the Bill Snyder route and just rack up 4 wins every year until they get the program going in a consistently positive direction. I hate weak OOC scheduling, but that’s for the big boys.

    I agree that there are only a select few neutral site games that are compelling (the only ones you left out was Army vs. Navy, compelling for a very different reason and Bama vs Auburn, if they ever go back to Legion Field). I am amazed in talking to the paisans in Champaign that they were upset about getting out of it and contrasting that with some of my fellow Dawg fans that are ready to chickencrap the hell out of Jax. I do like the Colorado/Colorado State analogy, though.

    As for the trip, I’ll blow the horn on the way through the greater Gwinnett area on the way back after a weekend in Athens.

    Also, we need to determine the rounds of the quiz according to it.

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.
