CBS picks up Georgia-Ole Miss game; Dogs move up to 6th in coaches poll, 7th in AP

ATHENS — For a second straight week, Georgia will play in the 3:30 p.m. game on CBS.

The national television network exercised its six-day option on Sunday and picked up the Bulldogs’ game against Ole Miss this Saturday at Sanford Stadium. CBS carried this past Saturday’s game between Georgia and then-No. 2 Florida, which the Bulldogs won 17-9. The Rebels (5-3, 2-2 SEC) are coming off a 30-27 win over Arkansas in Little Rock.

It will mark Georgia’s third appearance on CBS this season. The network also carried Georgia ’s 51-44 win over Tennessee in Athens on Sept. 29. Overall, the Bulldogs have appeared on CBS 70 times and posted a record of 40-29-1.

In related news, the Bulldogs moved up to No. 7 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll and to No. 6 in the USA Today Coaches Poll. Georgia, which was No. 10 this past week, should also moved up in the BCS rankings, which will be released tonight.

The dawgs had better get back into game day mode asap and not take this Ole Miss team lightly. Freeze is gonna throw everything he has at UGA and we better be ready to play with the same fire as against Fl. I’m fearing a let down somewhere down the road…..Go Dawgs!

To The Truth: Do not consider yourself a UGA fan! Why do you think CMR has been at Georgia so long? Obviously you are in the minority of Bulldogs, excuse me, you are definitely a NON Bulldog!!

Anyone know where I can find video of the pregame scuffle? CBS showed it, but I can find the clip anywhere.

“The Truth” is CMR has the Dogs on top and a bunch of you haters just can’t stand it. Still have a chance to go all the way….not saying we will, but if somehow it happens, what will you haters say then?

If the coaching staff and players have any sense, they will pay attention to the Ole Miss films. They are playing really well and if Murray throws three Int., it could be a long day. The team needs to stay motivated for the rest of the season. They have only won a game and there are more games to be played. They have not accomplished anything yet and still have a lot to prove. The team needs to come in and hit Ole Miss in the mouth and keep their foot on the gas. The O needs to get it in gear and keep it going. Great win against Fla., but they haven’t won anything yet. Stay focused and keep on fighting.

Well said Lagdawg!! We should beat Ole Miss and Auburn if we don’t get cocky and take those two teams for granted! I hope this win helps Murray finally get over his big game jitters and gets on fire now!! D-fense keep up the lights out play and we have a chance to get back to the DOME!!! Go Dawgs!!

Not to brag but I predicted the LIZARDS would have REPTILE DYSFUNCTION … fumbles, interceptions and penalties. That’s what happens when you put heat on the QB. Ole Miss is much improved and very well coached – a formidable opponent. UGA will be facing a QB that is a double threat to pass and run. Congrats to the Dawgs players and coaches for a big win against the #2 ranked team in the nation. Heart break for the Lizards for a change. By the way UGA / and Fla are 3 -3 in the past 6 games and 4 -5 in the past 9.

Just getting in from a great weekend in J-ville loved seeing CMR showing some fire early in the game. You don’t have to be a jerk to want to win, nobody wants it more than him. Loved seeing those empty uf seats at the end of the game. GO DAWGS!

COME ON! All Week We’ve heard about the VAUNTED Gator Defense and Offense. The Pundits and media said we wouldn’t win this game because the common denominator ( The South Carolina Game) and the History of this series. The Gators even put an ad in the UGA school newspaper talking about the “Soft” Defense and how bad it is. Well the Dog’s Defense left more gators lying on the field than you’ll find on Alligator Alley on I-75. Oh by the way, your Offense didn’t score a TD( 3 FGs)….So STOP with the Excuses NOW! Excuse (verb) Attempt to lessen the blame attaching to (a fault or offense); seek to defend or justify. GO DAWGS!

Two comments: interesting how Florida fans defended their multiple “created” turnover win over USC last week yet all I hear now is how they “gave” the game to UGA. funny, isn’t it?

2. We beat the #2 team in the nation and we only pass the teams that lost. Interesting.

…either way…still have to beat LSU or BAMA.

Mark Richt is a class act. UGA’s team is made better as a result of Mark’s: dedication, experience, intelligence, and ability to motivate the team.

Your team plays in the worst conference in college football,and because of your lying ex-coach your team is a non-entity in the BCS. So let your Buckeyes go undefeated in the little ten,eleven or twelve and you can claim your mythical championship of ineligibility.Then in 2013 maybe Meyer will man up and open the season with the SEC champs like Michigan did in 2012. But I doubt it will happen.

Murray does not look sharp and focused in his eyes. Each closeup shot on TV makes him look confuded and lost. He needs to look like he has command of the team.

upcomi games ought to be Murray’s thing. He should feel a huge of relief and go backto throwing strikes. I knew when Bennett went out, Murray would slide.

Ole Miss game is huge!

Go Dogs.

Congrads to the defense for outstanding play-need this the next remaining games. Great job! I really like Abry Jones. He’s the real deal !

Would really like to see Malcome and Samuels get some carries. Gurley and Marshall are doing a great job- Keep it up, and thanks for coming to Georgia!

I really would like to see more slant passes and runs outside instead of constantly up the middle? I hope Murray will settle down- he left some points on the field with the overthrow passes- but all in all he stepped up when needed.

I thought this was a hard fought, defensive game and both sides played their hearts out and my hats of to both-glad Georgia won though.

Stay focused one game at a time and thanks Coach Grantham and the defensive coaches and players for calling and executing a great gameplan.

Malcolm Mitchell is a great player and I found his desire to win and his play outstanding as an offensive player. Thanks, great job!

Most if not all of the CMR haters are Tech fans posing as disgruntled UGA fans.

They are desparate to get rid of CMR because he owns them 10-1 and their own pathetic little program is imploding.

I guess their strategy is if they can’t beat him on the field then try to drive him off.

It isn’t going to happen. The UGA alumni and students love him. He has won 113 games in 11&1/2 seasons and has beat Florida 4 times now which is 4 times as much as the two previous coaches together,
