Saturday Links 8/9

First day of two-a-days today, which means an early morning for me. Now, I got into the sports writing business just so I could avoid early mornings, but I'm willing to make the sacrifice for a week I guess. But don't be surprised if these morning blogs start becoming utterly incomprehensible by midweek.

Bleacher Report says Georgia is overrated but Ohio State -- the team that was shredded by the SEC in the past two National Championship games -- is underrated.

The Courier Herald has a story about a UGA fan in Italy. Apparently he started following the Bulldogs after meeting Georgia art students a half century ago.

The Memphis Commercial Appeal writes that Georgia women's basketball landed another recruit.

The AJC's Chip Towers provides a list of some freshmen who might actually see some playing time this season.

The Red & Black reports that Trinton Sturdivant and Bean Anderson have been placed on probation by the university for an off-field incident earlier this summer.

USA Today has a story on Knowshon , who was participating in practice today, but still in a green jersey.

Sanford Knows Best has a video interview with Asher Allen.

Michael Carvell from the AJC writes that a tight end from Dartmouth is about to commit to Georgia.

The Georgia Sports Blog has some interesting numbers on just how good head coach Mark Richt has been. (Correction: Hobnail Boot and Kyle King actually did the math here, GSB provided the link. Sorry for the confusion.)

Dawgs Online has an interview with the brains behind the Richt operation.

I have to tell you what a great job you're doing. What a service to the Dawg Nation. I'll admit that I was disappointed when D. Ching was reassigned, but your effort and content has been impressive. Please keep it coming!

I agree with anonymous @ 0749's post. Keep it coming.

And technically, Georgia Sports Blog has a link to a post by Hobnail_Boot on T. Kyle King's and MaconDawg's with some interesting numbers on how good Richt has been. I'm just sayin'.

David, I tried to email you at your CLE address about an apostrophe issue I was having, but it bounced back. I'm not tryin' to be a stalker or anything, but I was wondering if there were email problems at the paper's domain.

Not sure what the deal is with the CLE address -- you can use my Telegraph email, though, and hopefully that should work (

Thanks so much for the compliments folks. It's been an overwhelming first few weeks, but I'm thrilled to have the chance to be covering UGA for such a passionate group of fans.
