Dawgs of the Decade: Vote Early, Vote Often

We've still got a few very close votes -- on the O line, wide receiver, tight end, etc. -- and a couple days left to vote in our Dawgs of the Decade series. If you haven't voted yet -- or, like in Chicago politics, if you just want to vote again -- head over to and cast your ballots for all of the positions.

We have just one more position left -- running back -- which I'm guessing won't be too close of a vote. Still, I'm hoping to get a few more comments from you guys, too. If you have good stories or favorite plays from any of these players, let us know about them, and we may use your comments in our All-Decade edition of the Telegraph on Dec. 27.

If you want to look over the ballots one more time, you can find them all HERE.

A few other thoughts on the series after putting it together:

-- It is insane how much talent has come through this program in the past 10 years. If you were to make up a list of Georgia's 10 best at every position, you could make a pretty good argument that half the WRs, safeties and defensive tackles as well as the No. 1 overall defensive end, a few of the top corners and linebackers and three of the five or six best quarterbacks and tight ends all played in the past decade. That's certainly no disrespect to the great players who came through Athens in the previous hundred-or-so years, but Georgia fans have definitely had a lot to cheer about during that time.

-- I had failed to realize how much of Georgia's 2000s talent ended up on the Eagles roster: Witherspoon, Clemons, Reggie Brown, Max-Jean, Sean Jones... strange, eh?

-- The toughest votes for me were at wide receiver, safety and a second defensive end (after Pollack).

-- After typing up the resumes for all those players, the one guy whose work surprassed what I had really appreciated he had done was probably Mohamed Massaquoi. When you add to his numbers the fact that he mentored A.J. Green through a freshman year that set a new standard at UGA, I think Mo Mass had about as big an effect on Georgia this decade as almost anyone.

Chris Low has an interesting piece that fits nicely with what you have been posting.

So much talent! We had a nice run winning some SEC championships, but we never dominated the way we should have with the type of skill and talent.
