Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Weekend roundup

Monday April 16, 2007

As expected, Georgia had little trouble breezing through the Denver regional to earn another trip to the national championships to defend their back-to-back titles.

The news wasn’t all good: senior Ashley Kupets’ career was ended with an achilles injury.


If the Diamond Dawgs were going to have some kind of miraculous turnaround to the season, winning a series against another struggling team like Alabama would be a good start. Scratch that plan. Georgia dropped two of three to the Crimson Tide over the weekend. They fell 5-3 on Sunday after loading the bases in the eighth and ninth innings. Perno sounds helpless. "I don’t know about this team. Nothing is happening when we need it," he said.

Saturday’s 7-6 loss was especially painful; they led 6-5 before heading to the bottom of the ninth with closer Josh Fields on the mound. Dodson’s stellar Friday night was the lone bright spot of the series. The Dawgs are now 5-10 halfway through the SEC slate.

If there’s anything to salvage from this season, it’s the season series with Tech. The two teams meet on Wednesday in Atlanta.
