Parade All-Americans and basketball scalpers!

(University of Georgia)

(University of Georgia)

Happy Founders Day! Today marks the 225th anniversary of the state of Georgia chartering the University of Georgia, and we’ll celebrate it by noting that three of the Dogs’ verbal commitments have made the 2010 edition of the much cited Parade Magazine All-America team.

Safety Alec Ogletree of Newnan, receiver Da’Rick Rogers of Calhoun and quarterback Hutson Mason of Marietta are among 58 players from 24 states selected selected by coaches, journalists, scouts, and recruiters for the 47th annual All-America High School Football Team. They are the only players from the state of Georgia to make the team.

Now we just gotta hope they indeed sign on the dotted line.

The All-America team will run in the Sunday issue of Parade but you can check it out by clicking on the above link.

BULLDOG BITES

You know Mark Fox has the basketball program on the mend when there are actually scalpers outside the Steg! The Athens Banner-Herald reports UGA police banned two men from campus for trying to sell tickets to Saturday’s game with UT within 1,500 feet of Stegeman Coliseum. The Dogs, meanwhile, will try to break out of their dismal road-game pattern tonight at Florida. Georgia has won only one SEC road game in each of the past two seasons and so far this year has come close, but no cigar. The last time Georgia won at Florida, some guy named Harrick was coaching. And that win officially doesn’t count any more. … The Red and Black has an entertaining look at UGA basketball walk-ons Connor Nolte and Matt Bucklin, the guys who started the game day trick shot bit that resulted in Mark Richt becoming a YouTube sensation. … Speaking of UGA’s birthday, that original 1785 charter will be on display 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. through Thursday in the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library at the UGA main library.

Let’s hope that no “National Treasure”-esque capers involving that 1785 manuscript and Nicholas Cage occur.

Lots of chatter in North Georgia (local media out of Chattanooga) about Da’Rick Rogers and Nash Nance signing with Tennessee.

I want to stay on you UGA grads case about getting in the stands and supporting Fox. He can build a major program there, but needs you grads in the stands. All of you know that a player who matters on the national scene is not going to UGA to play in front of a high school size crowd.

I believe it’s the anonymity…face to face most of these fools wouldn’t say a tenth of what they spew on the message boards. Humans tend to be VERY childish and immature when they think they can get away with it…

I thought you UGA fans were against the local cops. Today they are arresting scalpers and helping your cause, tommorow they are arresting football players unjustly.

For the 95th time let him go if he doesn’t REALLY want to come. He’ll play MUCH sooner at UT

Hutson is good but he is not even a top 15 QB in the country, probably not top 20 either so how does he make this team? Was Hutson at the Under Armour Game? No. How did he play at the U.S. Army All American Game? Oh yeah he didn’t.

If D Rogers is being persuaded to go to Tenn. so his friend can get a “big scholarship offer” that is pretty low. The kid could play at Vandy but will sit on the bench at Tenn.

the truth must be a player from one of the teams Hutson lit up during the season. the only truth he is preaching is that he is a loser..

“Floundering Fox” is a little 17 year old homo who grew up without a father, has never been laid, and goes to Southern Poly. Poor little homo.

The poodles cannot beat the Gators in anything! How can we lose so badly when we are hitting threes like no time ever. Without our three’s, it is a 30 point shellacking by the reptiles.

I forgot, we do beat the reptiles in some girls’ sports, but get our tails beat by all the male teams.

Where is everyone singing the praises of the Dogs hoopers now? Everyone was J’ing off to this team after last weeks win, but now, back to normal I guess. Forgetting about basketball and talking about football in January.

Nice Job Guys...
