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!

We really should drop gtu from our schedule since they aren’t competitive. I bet Tennessee Chattanooga would give us more of a challenge, or maybe even Georgia State.

For some reason, the UGA fans think that running down Georgia Tech elevates their own team’s sorry performance. Keep thinking that all the way to Shreveport, you unwashed dumb masses.

UGA is not ugly.

UGA is a cute animal.

And, the # 1 Mascot in America.

Now, ugly would be that Georgia Tech returns home from Athens in 1893, after Tech the year before had won ZERO games all season long, and cheated and played as your best 3 players all players who were NOT students at Georgia Tech (Trade School, then.) Recognizing this, UGA fans threw rocks at the train and then the train rear-ended a freight train outside Lawrenceville.

RAMBLING WRECK RETURNS TO ATLANTA

the headlines of the AJ-C read.

Now, ugly is that Tech tries to pass off a model A from 37 years later then as your “RAMBLIN’ WRECK.”

It is NOT.

It’s a TRAIN.

And, for Good Damn Reason, it’s a TRAIN.

Never mind those bumblebees even though they won the ACC, are ranked in the top 10, and are going to a BCS Bowl game. We can hopelessly cling to the fact we beat them this year and that we also had a great soybean crop come in this year too! This will provide for a great discussion when we all load up in our pick up trucks and head down I-20 to Shreveport for the game. I hear Shreveport is so much nicer than South Beach anyways! Go Dawgs!

Uh oh, looks like he pooped on it too… oh well, I’ll just go down to the cesspool called bobby dodd “stadium” and get some more this afternoon. I’ll probably rip out 8-10 square feet of turf so he will have plenty of room to take a dump on it.
I want to encourage all you other Dawg fans to go get some too! It’s perfect for letting your dogs piss on!

Too bad that “30-24 We’re just better than you” lost his food stamps when the mobile home park burned down. And we all know about his sister having Rennie Curran’s illegitimate kid. I know he’s having a rough time dealing with all that.

Sounds like good logic Tech Fan…I’d rather finish the season 7-5 and in the cellar of the SEC but with a win over the bumblebees. Give a choice between winning the conference and going to a BCS bowl game or beating the bumblebees….I’ll take the win over the bumblebees so I can make fun of my boss (who is a GT alum).
and besides…Shreveport wont be that bad :(

NOBODY CARES!!!!!

So you won the game last week when we blew a comeback…NOBODY CARES!!!
They didn’t even drop us from the top 10 because everyone outside of TrailerPark USA knew it was a FLUKE!!! GT is going to a BCS game and you’re going to the TOILET BOWL!!!!

It was the first day of 3rd grade, and a new school for BuLLDawg

As a test, the teacher went around the room and asked each of the students to count to 50.

Some did very well, counting as high as 30 and 40, with just a few mistakes. Others couldn’t get past 20.

BuLLDawg, however, did extremely well. He counted past 50, right up to 83.

He was so excited that he ran home and told his Dad how well he had done. His Dad nodded and told him, “That’s because you are from Georgia, son.”

The next day, in language class, the teacher asked the students to recite the alphabet.

Most made it about half way through without much trouble. Some made it to M and N, but BuLLDawg rattled off the alphabet right to W.

That evening, BuLLDawg once again bragged to his Dad about his prowess in his new school. His Dad, knowingly, explained to him, “Son, that’s because you are from Georgia.”

The next day, after Physical Education, the boys were taking showers.

BuLLDawg noted that, compared to the other boys in his grade, he seemed overly well endowed. This confused him.

That night he told his dad, “Dad, they all have little tiny ones, but mine is three times bigger than theirs. Is that because I’m from Georgia?”

“No, BuLLDawg,” explained his Dad, “That’s because you’re 21.”

Oh no, more bad news for former UGA players. Their unemployment rate is now 110%. No, I don’t know how it could be that high either, unless they’re double-counting the food stamp applications.

Hey SCTechfan…let me start off by saying that us Dawgs beat you guys and that I’m clinging on to that victory because….well there’s not much else to brag about when your team is the doormat for the rest of the SEC and is barely even bowl eligible.

As far as soybeans are concerned, I have some great fertilizer recommendations.
As far as bulldogs humping your leg…I had that problem too with my daughter…had to send her away to Athens to cure the problem…whew!
