Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Wrapping up a memorable basketball season

Wednesday April 23, 2008

Chip Towers has a good recap of the men’s basketball banquet. Be sure you see the highlight video of the SEC Tournament produced by the Tip-Off Club.

I have to tip my cap again to Dave Bliss. We all know that he wasn’t the highest-rated prospect ever signed by Georgia. He had to play raw right out of the gate. Crippling back problems limited his progress and playing time. To use one of Dennis Felton’s favorite terms, it was gratifying to see Bliss recognized as a leader and important part of this team and program. To earn co-MVP honors alongside a star like Gaines is a tremendous accomplishment for anyone.
