Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Stegeman is the place to be this week

Tuesday January 23, 2007

If you’re a college sports junkie, this is the kind of week you love to see. Four ranked opponents are coming to Stegeman Coliseum in five days:

  • Wednesday night (7:00): Georgia men vs. #25 Kentucky. Tubby Smith and his fax machine are coming to town, and this is always the hottest ticket of the year for men’s basketball. Kentucky is definitely beatable this year but could be refocused after losing to Vanderbilt over the weekend.
  • Thursday night (7:00): #14 Georgia women vs. #22 Ole Miss. Ole Miss at 5-0 is the early surprise in the SEC standings. They beat LSU at home and have two conference road wins unde their belt, but Georgia will be their first quality road test. Did the Lady Dogs turn a corner against FSU? This game will tell us a lot.
  • Saturday afternoon (4:00): #2 Gym Dogs vs. #1 Florida. This is a regular season turf war. Florida has recently moved into the #1 ranking, and Georgia looked vulnerable last weekend. If Georgia is to remain as favorites for both the national title and SEC title, winning this meet is very important.
  • Sunday afternoon (3:00): Georgia men vs. #22 LSU. This is a big game for a number of basketball-related reasons, but the biggest reason is that Kevin Brophy and his family will be honored at this game. Fans are encouraged to wear red.

Tickets remain for most of these events. Go to georgiadogs.com for more information.
