G-Day is here ...

... And here's a look at who's out today, who's stock is up, who has work to do, and more.

This blog will be updated in the lead-up to the game, and then of course we'll live blog - because that's what we do - during the game.

One reminder about coverage: The game is on CSS everywhere. It will be on ESPN3 (online) as well, but my understanding is it will be blacked out in areas that have CSS.

11:40 a.m.: The early report

It's turning into a sunny day in Athens, but kind of brisk. Yours truly thought he'd be fine wearing a short-sleeve shirt, a decision I'm regretting at the moment. Then again, I'm in the shade of the press box, so denizens of the rest of the stadium might end up in better shape.

"Feels like football weather to me," Vince Dooley just said during a brief turn at the microphone at halftime of the alumni flag football game.

It's halftime of that flag football game, and the players have gone to the locker rooms, presumably to take in oxygen, or drink heavy amounts of liquor, or both. The Black team leads the Red 20-7, despite the Red team getting a nice contribution from Garrison Hearst on a catch-and-run. Just like he used to do it for the 49ers.

11:50 a.m.

One of the flag football team coaches was just asked what he told his players at halftime:

"I told them to remove all their belongings before the team comes back," he said.

Okay ...

12:15 p.m.: Actual G-Day game depth charts

Who knows how much they'll actually stick to these, but here are some things that stick out:

- The Red team's starting left tackle is Cordy Glenn. The Black team's (protecting Aaron Murray) is Hugh Williams. But obviously they won't allow quarterbacks to actually be sacked. Or at least they'll try not to let them.

- Kenarious Gates is listed as the right guard for the Red team. He had been occupying left guard during practice. The left guards on each team are Kolton Houston and Ben Reynolds.

- Chris Burnette is listed as the starting center for the Black team, even though he's become the favorite to start at right guard.

- A.J. Harmon and Justin Anderson are listed as the right tackles.

- At receiver, youth prevails on the depth chart: Chris Conley is ahead of Rantavious Wooten on the Black team, and Michael Bennett is ahead of Israel Troupe on the Red.

- How decimated are the safeties with injuries? Starting at free safety for the Black team is Connor Newman, and starting at strong safety for the Red is Eric Elliot.

And we're going to post bitchy and whiny comments - because that's what we do.

Anybody got a problem with that?
