Turkey Day Links (11/26)

Happy Turkey Day to everyone. Hope you're chock full of stuffing and cranberry sauce, but before you slip into your triptofan-enduced coma (and by that I mean watching the Detroit Lions), here are a few Thanksgiving links for you...

-- It's been a lot of negative stories this week, but today is about giving thanks, so my story in the Telegraph is all about the silver linings from this year's Bulldogs season.

-- Coley Harvey has a good story on the close relationship between Rennie Curran and Jonathan Dwyer.

-- I know the coaches have caught a lot of blame this season, but here's something else notable that has certainly tied into Georgia's problems: ESPN's Chris Low offers up his All-SEC Senior Team and there isn't a Bulldog in the group. Certainly Kade Weston, Geno Atkins and Jeff Owens have had solid seasons, but so many of Georgia's other seniors -- Prince Miller, Mike Moore, Joe Cox, Darius Dewberry -- have fallen short of expectations, while the best players from the class of 2006 -- Matt Stafford, Knowshon Moreno, Asher Allen -- left early for the NFL. It's tough to win without much production from your most experienced class.

-- Georgia Sports Blog simplifies the Dawgs' bowl picture, and while I'm not thrilled about a Shreveport trip, there are some intriguing matchups possible for the game.

-- The AJC warns of the dangers of firing a coach too soon.

-- If Uga is going digital, Every Day Should Be Saturday gives a nice blueprint for how it should be done.

-- From the Rumble Seat has a list of 10 reasons Tech hates UGA.

-- This just about sums up why I'll eventually be out of a job no matter how many people read my stuff online.

-- I'm shocked one of Lane Kiffin's players wasn't involved in this.

-- "Lost" will be going up against the most popular new show on TV when it returns in the spring.

-- The Straight Dope uses some scientific evidence to prove spontaneous combustion exists, but they could have simply watched "Spinal Tap."

-- I couldn't agree more with Adam Buckman's take on the last season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

-- Once you're done with the leftovers, I love this flow chart on where to get fast food no matter your situation. (h/t C-Nati)

-- And these are good times...

PTI's turkeys of the year for 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, and 2003.

Ah, I love PTI.

And finally, a big thanks to all of you for reading during the past year. I know it hasn't always been good news, but I've extraordinarily appreciative for all the insight, kind words, thoughtful suggestions, hilarious comments and words of encouragement over the past year. Thanks so much, and enjoy the holiday.

Happy Thanksgiving and all that.

Could you please ask Mark Richt to abandon that part-down-the-middle haircut?

He's starting to be a whole decade behind in men's hairstyle.

In the past I could not keep up with certain friends of mine who could talk GA issues every week even though I go to all the games, etc. Now I can, thanks David

Happy Turkey Day, David!

I'm with HVL, but I think Mark needs to go Bruce Willis and shave it all off.
