Super-inside Georgia news

There's a new highlight video for the pre-game festivities, which may or may not include Elton John's "Saturday Night's Alright," but definitely includes various players talking about what Saturday means to them.

Not sure what that means for the Baba O'Reilly intro, but surely the Munson intro remains.

Also - did you know the cheerleaders and a bunch of other folks associated with the team are going to Munson's house for dinner Friday night? I can't decide who's luckier, him or the cheerleaders.

In other Bulldog news, John Isner, who led the men's tennis team to a National Title earlier this year, is set to play Roger Federer in the U.S. Open this weekend.
Now Federer faces a much taller task: His third-round opponent is John Isner, the 6-foot-9 American who only a few months ago was playing college tennis for Georgia. With fans barking for their favorite Bulldog, Isner followed up his first-round upset of No. 26 Jarkko Nieminen by beating Rik de Voest of South Africa 6-3, 6-3, 7-6 (4).

Federer said he's only seen Isner play a few games and called him a "new kid on the block."

During an on-court interview, Isner was asked to look ahead to the matchup with Federer.
"Is he good?" Isner asked with a knowing laugh.

"I'm going to believe," Isner said later. "I'm not saying I'm going to win, but I'm going to believe. That's what I have to do."

I saw Isner play this year. He smoked the second best college player in the country, and I mean it wasn't even close.

Looks like the 3rd round is Saturday and Sunday. Not sure when Isner's match will be.
