Bulldog Bites: Bowl tickets on sale Sunday night

Will the Dogs go bowling in Atlanta or Shreveport? (UGA Sports Communications)

Will the Dogs go bowling in Atlanta or Shreveport? (UGA Sports Communications)

Atlanta? Shreveport? We’ll find out Sunday evening.

I’m hoping for the Chick-fil-A Bowl but recognize there were times this season when the Dogs looked like they’d be lucky to make it to the Independence Bowl.

I noticed the other day when I wrote about how Shreveport is not a popular destination among SEC teams, some defender of the Louisiana city took umbrage in the comments. Hey, I’ve got nothing against Shreveport itself. But its bowl, in its last year of a tie-in with the SEC, doesn’t generate much buzz. Though whenever I hear the Independence Bowl mentioned, I think of a time back in the 1990s when I was at a UGA baseball game and a guy sitting behind me, who did a dead-on impression of Ray Goff, kept drawling, “Dadburnit, Vince, I like Shreveport!”

Anyway, whichever bowl the Dogs get, the athletic association has announced that tickets will be available to the general public beginning at 8 p.m. Sunday online via the ticket office Web site. Fans also can order bowl tickets by calling 1-877-542-1231 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. All ticket requests will be filled in the order in which they are received, subject to availability.

All Hartman Fund donors will receive the number of tickets to the bowl they requested during the pre-order process and also will receive priority on ticket assignments based on their cumulative donation score, the athletic association says.

The Dogs will be making their 45th bowl game appearance. Georgia currently has a 25-16-3 bowl record. This will be the Bulldogs’ ninth straight bowl appearance under Mark Richt.

SUPPORT BUTLER

All-American Drew Butler, who leads the nation in punting, is considered the leading candidate for the Ray Guy Award, given annually to the nation’s top punter. The winner will be announced on ESPN’s College Football Awards, televised starting at 7 p.m. on Thursday. ESPN is conducting a straw poll online as to who should win the award. To show your support for Butler, go here and vote.

GEORGA VS. GEORGIA TECH AGAIN

The Lady Bulldogs take on Tech’s women’s basketball team at 2:30 p.m. Sunday at Stegeman Coliseum in Athens in a game that will be televised regionally on CSS and carried on radio in Athens via AM 960 The Ref. The game will be the first of a school-record 14 regular-season TV appearances for the Lady Dogs this season.

Georgia, ranked No. 13 in the AP poll and No. 16 in the ESPN/USA Today poll, is 7-0 so far this season, while Tech, ranked 23rd in the AP poll, is 5-1. This will be the first time both teams have entered their matchup ranked in the AP poll.

Georgia leads the series 28-3, including an 11-0 mark at Stegeman Coliseum. Tech won 57-42 last year in Atlanta.

Go Dogs!

The Doggies are not playing in the Chik-fil-a Bowl. That game has already been decided. UT vs. VT. UT beat the krapp out of UGA so there is no way Chik-fil-a passes on UT. On the bright side, Greyhound just announced 3 new buses daily to Shreveport so all you redneck UGA fans won’t have any trouble getting there!

Seriously, Mo Robinson needs to be off the campus and get professional help. He is not only a danger to other students, but to himself. We would all hate to see this get worse for an 18 year-old. Mo, get help before it turns into a disaster.

Well, me and the missus were talking about a trip to Florida just the other day. It’s a pretty long drive but warm. So when I seen the headline of this item I figured it would be a pretty good time, being the holidays and all. Give me a minute to read the whole article . . .

Shrevesport? As in the armpit of Louisiana? Somebody must be funning me. This is Georgia we’re talking about, not Texas Southern or some other podunk team. There’s got to be some mistake here. We always go to New Orleans or if not there Tampa or Orlando.

Anyhow, forget about that trip for now. I’ll just wait till the Junkyard Blawg gets it right. Then I’ll decide.

HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa. That’s a pretty good leg pull, Bill King. Now tell us where my Dawgs are really going.

what’s the deal on chick-fil-a ?
i understood it to basically be a done deal for
UT and VATECH.

but, if CLEMSON loses, maybe they dont want
a rematch of them and UT of a few years ago.

whoever said UT deserves it b/c they gave us a
beat-down, using that logic, UGA should be in
OUTBACK since they defeated AUBURN and
have a better sec record than AUBURN.

HOW ABOUT THAT??!!

Phat Phil – Thats great that UT is playing in the Chicken bowl….just do us one favor….Please make sure that all your players know that they can’t be totin’ their gats with them up in the Dome. I’m pretty sure the metal detectors will go off…

Do the players all get a free weedeater for gifts if we go to Shreveport? I could use a new one and I figure they will wind up on e-bay.

Hi folks, I’m Mark Ray Donnan, and I’d like to tell you about my favorite garden tool-
Poulan Weedeaters….the OFFICIAL weed wacker of UGA Athletics. It always executes my gardening gameplans with perfection, and looks great sitting in the bed of my tough Ford pickup.

So the next time you need a great weed eater, get yourself a Poulan Weedeater and remember….

Go dogs – Whack em! Roar Roar Roar (sound of weedeater engine in background.)

With all due respect, sir, I would not pull for Tech if they were playing the al-Qaida Camel Humpers. I would gladly choose going to Shreveport over pulling for the nerd herd. Don’t they willingly choose baby fecal matter as one of their team colors?

Shreveport is so… crappy, but the UGA low-lifes and felons deserve it. I’m talking about the players AND the fans, of course.

You mention Georgia owning the series 28-3 but as a Georgia fan I have been disheartened many of the last few years. Why not also add that the Tech women have beaten the Georgia women like 3 of the last 5 (I think) but it could have been 3 of the last 4. Considering we are almost always a top 10 womens program my hats off to the Tech coach that has actually done a tremendous job at a largely male school due to its engineering background. The LadyDawgs had best show up with their A game! This game would have been very interesting if Techs top rebounder and 2nd leading scorer had not gotten herself injured but they still have some decent weapons. Let’s get a 2for by adding to our football prowess.
