I got an email yesterday from the president of the Colorado contingent of the Bulldog Nation, pointing me in the direction of their group's blog that covers all things related to the UGA-CU game this coming season. If you're planning on (or thinking about) making the trip, it might be a good place to start.
And since I didn't have much else to write about this morning, here's how I'd rank 2010's road trips...
6.) Jacksonville. This trip annoys me more every year.
5.) Starkvegas. Thus fulfilling a lifetime dream.
4.) South Carolina. At least it's a short drive. Of course, the last time I went, it didn't go well.
3.) Auburn. All things considered, I think Jordan-Hare is my favorite stadium in the SEC outside of Athens.
2.) Kentucky. It has been three years since I've been to Keeneland to gamble on the ponies. I cannot wait.
1.) Colorado. The last time I was in Denver, I was awake for the first 36 hours of the trip. I'm hopeful this visit goes a bit smoother.
OK, how about some links?
-- Da'Rick Rogers isn't ditching Georgia just yet, but he's not exactly ruling it out either.
-- Nickell Robey, on the other hand, sounds like he's all but gone.
-- Mr. SEC compares the quality of the commitments so far at each SEC school.
-- Chris Low looks at the recruiting needs of teams in the SEC East and includes one I mentioned earlier today for Georgia.
-- The Grit Tree has a great piece on what it's like to be a hot commodity on the recruiting trail when you've never experienced much of the spotlight before.
-- Marc Weiszer writes that Georgia's defensive backs remain a confident group despite a lack of experience.
-- Geno Atkins is turning heads at Senior Bowl practice.
-- Leather Helmet Blog has a good interview posted with Georgia walk-on Reuben Faloughi, who says he's likely going to be making a position change. (Side note -- I think he's another guy who might fit really well in the 3-4.)
-- Red, Black and Three Sheets to the Wind uses Terrence Cody's Senior Bowl weigh-in as evidence that "strength and conditioning" is a relative thing. Of course, Cody isn't alone among former Alabama players who could use a Bro (or Manzier, if you prefer).
-- Ah, ESPN's Rumor Central... where an innocuous opinion on an unrelated story shared by one local beat writer in a far-away town must obviously mean Mark Richt will soon be out of a job.
-- Sundiata Gaines was inked to a deal through the end of the season by the Utah Jazz.
-- NBADraft.net has it updated mock drafts posted and two UGA stars make the first-round cut for the 2011 draft. (h/t Stephen Hartzell)
-- Hoop Dawgs takes a look at a guy who could add some serious punch to Mark Fox's crew next season.
-- T Kyle King warns hoops fans not to get too far ahead of themselves in predicting big things for this year's Dawgs.
-- A Web site honoring the nation's best fans has named Peanut Butter Kid their fan of the month.
-- Signs your story may be in trouble: 1.) You called a high-level executive to ask about a rumor that was utterly unsubstantiated. 2.) You were told it was "ridiculous" and that is the only quote you have on the record from anyone. 3.) You felt the need to use the word "quote" in addition to using quotation marks. 4.) You spelled about a dozen words wrong. But yeah, I'm sure baseball is coming to Orlando real soon.
-- This YouTube clip allows you to watch the entire flight 815 crash from "Lost" in real time. (h/t Mike T.) I'm going to predict that within nine months of the show ending, someone with way too much time on their hands will recreate the entire show in chronological order.
-- I can only assume rehab didn't go very well for Steven Tyler.
-- And finally, I meant to post this link the other day, but it managed to escape me. Dawgs for Haiti is collecting funds for the relief efforts in Haiti. You can find information on how to make a donation HERE.
