Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Welcome to exams week

Monday December 11, 2006

Finals week brings the college sports world to a grinding halt. Football is in hibernation, and both basketball teams won’t play again until this weekend. Once exams are over, here’s what we have to look forward to:

  • Men’s basketball really gets going with games upcoming against Gonzaga and Georgia Tech. There aren’t many more preseason cupcakes left. A road win over Wake Forest was nice
  • The Lady Dogs try to recover from their first loss of the season and try to find chemistry and rotations that work now that Tasha Humphrey is back.
  • The football team will start practicing for the Chick-fil-A Bowl. It’s not quite summer two-a-days, but the semester break gives the team a chance to go through some of the more intense workouts they’ve had since August.
  • Early enrollees will join the football team. These include recent junior college commitments as well as high schoolers graduating early. I believe that offensive lineman Tanner Strickland is the first to arrive. These early arrivals will be able to practice with the team during bowl preparations, though they won’t play in the game. Going through bowl practices and spring practice is very valuable to incoming freshmen (Stafford and Durham made the most of it last year), but it’s infinitely more important for junior college players where the eligibility clock is already ticking.

Good luck on exams, and we’ll see what interesting topics we can come up with until the Dawgs start making news on the field and court again.
