Charting our way to August optimism

Do you remember, by chance, a brief discussion earlier this month about the interplay of off-season worry versus optimism?

Well, with this story comparing John Jenkins' potential impact at Georgia to Terrence Cody's actual impact at Alabama, I think we're moving quickly from the former to the latter.

In fact, I've charted this progress, and included a projection of my future expectations, based on past experience.

Note the tendency to blow past reasonableness on the way to irrational extremes.

A program on their shoulders

Good luck tonight to the UGA basketball team. This is the kind of game that can take us to another level, and build the momentum it takes to fulfill the university's potential as a basketball program.

Go Dawgs.

UGA Spring Break: Belding, shots, ridiculous

Yes that's Mr. Belding from Saved by the Bell standing on the bar and giving out free shots in Key West. Hilarious.

Eat your heart out, Charlie Sheen.

UGA: Dancing Machine

Loaded with style, stealing your women.

Me: You seed Bradley thinks we're going to beat UNC in the second round?

Joe: What?

It wasn't the timeout, it was the collapse

The time out was just the dumb cherry on the top of our inexplicable, but unsurprising fade. Maybe the Georgia basketball program has a strength, conditioning and nutrition program coordinator we can replace.

Surely there's still a Tereshinski out there somewhere who's not on the Bulldog payroll.

World's oldest woman lives in Georgia

Suck on that, rest of world.

From The Macon Telegraph:
Earlier this year, Cooper became the oldest living person after the death of Eunice G. Sanborn of Texas, according to the Los Angeles-based Gerontology Research Group. The group certifies supercentenarians - people who are 110 or older.

She was born in Tennessee on Aug. 26, 1896, during the second term of President Grover Cleveland.

Charlie Sheen embraces his own insanity

I was pretty well convinced that Charlie Sheen was insane and pitiable. Now I'm thinking he might be insane and hilarious.

"Face it, I am living the life of a rock star Vatican assassin."

Defensive shuffle: Looking for answers

Ogletree moving to inside linebacker, and some of the rest of what Defensive Coordinator Todd Grantham had to say Thursday, tells me a few things. Mostly it tells me to worry about safety.
Me: I'm pretty sure we're only excited because there's news. I'm still worried about a range of things here.

Joe: Oh, we're gonna worry. We're gonna worry until we're over confident.

Me: And then the losing starts.

Impressive: Hoop Dawgs 20-9 in 2011

From The AJC:
Completing its home schedule, Georgia (20-9, 9-6 SEC) also moved into a three-way tie for second place in the SEC East with Kentucky and Vanderbilt. The Bulldogs finish their regular season Saturday at Alabama.
Damned if that ain't getting into quality basketball territory. Thank you, Mark Fox. Thank you, Georgia Bulldogs.
