  23.    <title>Another reason I love Johnny Cash</title>
  24.    <link></link>
  25.    <description>&lt;p&gt;Was reading one of those slideshows you find yourself on when browsing news and I came across one that was called &lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;&lt;em&gt;10 mega stars who are secretly horrible people&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/a&gt;. While I agree with most of them, when I read this about my good man Johnny Cash I just couldn&#39;t help but laugh:&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  26. &lt;blockquote class=&quot;quote&quot;&gt;After &amp;ldquo;Walk the Line&amp;rdquo; came out, Johnny became a superstar again. He was the original bad boy in country music. Of course no one seems to remember the time he almost wiped out a species of birds. We kid you &lt;span style=&quot;text-decoration: line-through;&quot;&gt;now&lt;/span&gt; not. Cash was going through Los Padres National Forest in central California. His truck overheated and it went up in flames. &lt;strong&gt;Like a normal person, Cash went fishing instead of trying to find help.&lt;/strong&gt; The fire spread and burned a square mile of the forest. Here comes the bird part: 49 California Condors were killed by the fire. This was approximately 50% of the entire species. So what happened? The government &lt;span style=&quot;text-decoration: line-through;&quot;&gt;used&lt;/span&gt; sued him and they settled for a $82,000 fine. Of course it took over $30 million to attempt to conserve these birds. &lt;strong&gt;His defense? He was sorry but &amp;ldquo;I don&amp;rsquo;t give a damn about your yellow buzzards.&amp;rdquo;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;</description>

  31.    <title>Bad Product: Logitech X-540 5.1 Surround Sound</title>
  32.    <link></link>
  33.    <description>&lt;p&gt;I really &lt;a href=&quot;../news-logitech-x-540-51-surround-sound-speaker-system-with-subwoofer_214.html&quot;&gt;should have paid the extra $100&lt;/a&gt; from the beginning.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  34. &lt;p&gt;When I first received these speakers I was excited - primarily because I hadn&#39;t purchased a pair in at least 10 years. In fact, the old system was a gift from my parents when I was a kid.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  35. &lt;p&gt;While opening the package, I noticed that the insulation on the primary receiver-to-pc audio wires felt of plastic, rather than the rubbery feeling you usually see in wires like this. I even thought to my self: &quot;this shit better work&quot;.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  36. &lt;p&gt;Once I got them all hooked up, it took at least 15 minutes before they started to work. I&#39;m not sure what the deal was, but it seems like I had to keep them what the remote said was &quot;muted&quot; or they wouldn&#39;t work. Like they were wired backwards or some shit. I honestly don&#39;t know.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  37. &lt;p&gt;I started to turn up the volume to halfway. Once I reached that point, they began popping, and skipping parts of the test song I was using. I turned the bass up to about halfway as well which resulted in the bass disappearing completely. I&#39;ve seen the bass disappearing act before in a car audio environment because of a lack of power, but that&#39;s not the case in my home office. There&#39;s enough juice flowing through these walls to support two more identical man caves to mine.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  38. &lt;p&gt;I checked every connection, wiggled, reapplied -- to no avail. Keep in mind these are brand new speakers.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  39. &lt;p&gt;These speakers sound like shit and this was one of the worst purchases I&#39;ve made in a while. I sent these &quot;bad&quot; boys back immediately and after some slight hassle with the seller I got my full refund.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  40. &lt;p&gt;In the end, I purchased the set that only cost about $100 more. I&#39;ll review those in the next post.&lt;/p&gt;</description>

  45.    <title>Logitech X-540 5.1 Surround Sound Speaker System with Subwoofer</title>
  46.    <link></link>
  47.    <description>&lt;p&gt;Just purchased this bad boy. During the move from Anderson to Clemson, SC something went wrong with one of my rear speakers on my age old surround system. A replacement and upgrade were necessary. I avoided the upgraded version that costs about $100 more simply because of price.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  48. &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Price:&lt;/strong&gt; &lt;span id=&quot;priceblock_ourprice&quot; class=&quot;a-size-medium a-color-price&quot;&gt;$239.99&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  49. &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Surround yourself with the sound of victory &lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  50. &lt;p&gt;Take your game to the next level with surround sound so rich and detailed, you can hear your enemies before they hear you. With this 5.1 surround sound system on your side, you&#39;ll hear every footstep and where the bullets are flying from. Frequency Directed Dual Driver satellite speakers and a thundering subwoofer create a three-dimensional soundstage that envelops you and immerses you in the action. From crisp clean highs to deep thumping bass, this is everything you need to go from playing the game to feeling like you&#39;re actually in it.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;

  61. &lt;h2&gt;Key Features&lt;/h2&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  62. &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;5.1 surround sound for an intensified game and movie experience&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br /&gt; Immerse yourself in the action with richly detailed and accurately reproduced 5.1 surround sound. High-performance satellite speakers use Frequency Directed Dual Drivers (FDD&lt;sup&gt;2&lt;/sup&gt;) to eliminate uneven frequency response&amp;mdash;the sound distortion that occurs when some frequencies are artificially louder or softer than they were meant to be. The result?&amp;nbsp; A smooth and uniform field of surround sound throughout the room, without the dead zones and hot spots sometimes created by conventional dual driver satellites.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  63. &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Matrix mode transforms classic games from stereo to surround sound&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br /&gt; Your favorite old games are about to take a giant leap in sound quality. Choose the Matrix Mode and the speaker system instantly converts 2-channel stereo to realistic 5.1 surround sound. The difference in audio detail is so dramatic, it&#39;s like hearing your classic stereo games, movies and music for the first time.&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  64. &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Ported down-firing subwoofer gives you deeper, booming bass&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br /&gt; Enjoy deep, rich bass as its booming best. By facing the ported subwoofer down instead of straight ahead, bass is directed evenly throughout the room. Extra-deep rumbles and explosions make your games and movies more intense. Feel free to crank up the volume. Thanks to real-time bass equalization, you get clean, rich bass without distortion&amp;mdash;even at volumes you can feel.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  65. &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Control pod with headphone jack puts sound control at your fingertips&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br /&gt; With the corded control pod, all your controls are at hand&amp;mdash;power, master volume, bass level, even Matrix Mode. So it&#39;s easy to adjust sound in the heat of battle. And when you want to keep the game all to yourself, there&#39;s a headset jack for private listening.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  66. &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Versatile mounts let you customize your setup&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br /&gt; Setup your speaker system however you want to fit your listening environment. You can place the center channel speaker below your monitor. Or, to free up desk space, use the integrated clip to easily attach the speaker onto the top of your flat-panel display. You can also setup your four satellite speakers on a desk or mount them on the wall. Simply rotate the stands to switch from desktop to wall-mounted.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;

  73.    <link></link>
  74.    <description>&lt;div class=&quot;quote&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  75. &lt;p&gt; This snake is one of numerous animals around the world that can glide through the air. Six types of mammals are gliders, including flying squirrels and an arboreal critter called the colugo. Some lizards also glide, including the Draco lizard and some geckos.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  76. &lt;p&gt;There are even gliding frogs and gliding wingless ants, as well as types of flying fish and even &lt;b&gt;gliding squid&lt;/b&gt;.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;

  84.    <title>UGA is 9th most successful in BCS era</title>
  85.    <link></link>
  86.    <description>&lt;b&gt;9. Georgia&lt;/b&gt; – 174 points&lt;br /&gt;
  87. &lt;br /&gt;
  88. How could Georgia, a program that never reached the BCS National Championship Game, be ranked so high on this list? Consistency. Georgia reached the postseason in every year during the BCS era, notching 11 wins in the process – the most in all of college football. At the same time, the Bulldogs have only reached three BCS bowls – all being the Sugar Bowl. Mark Richt built a program that competed every year, but could never quite get over the hump into the elite.&lt;br /&gt;

  137.    <title>Nick Saban: “We’re just going to show up at the BCS title game anyway” (satire)</title>
  138.    <link></link>
  139.    <description>&lt;p&gt;Well, first there was &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;this&lt;/a&gt;. Which, in and of itself, is simply awesome:&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  140. &lt;center&gt;&lt;img src=&#39;images/articles/sextonsabanfinal.jpg&#39; alt=&#39;sextonsabanfinal&#39; /&gt;&lt;/center&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  141. &lt;p&gt;Then, there was &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;this&lt;/a&gt;:&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  142. &lt;br /&gt;
  143. &lt;div class=&#39;quote&#39;&gt;&lt;p&gt;Alabama has accepted a bid to play in the Sugar Bowl against Oklahoma on January 2nd, but head coach Nick Saban announced today that the Crimson Tide will also show up on January 6th at the BCS championship game “unless someone thinks they can stop us.”&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  144. &lt;br /&gt;
  145. &lt;p&gt;“Congrats to Florida State on being undefeated, but I mean come on,” said Saban, smirking. “Who have they played? Of course, I respect their opportunity to play in the BCS title game and play they will, as long as they can get on the field through the tunnels which will be blocked by Alabama linemen. I guess we’ll see who’s on the field at kickoff.”&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  146. &lt;p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  147. Alabama won the last two BCS championships and missed out on another undefeated season by a single score when Auburn ran back a missed field goal attempt as time expired in the final game of the season.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  148. &lt;br /&gt;
  149. &lt;p&gt;“No intelligent person thinks we shouldn’t still have an opportunity to defend our national titles because of one fluke play in one game,” said Saban to the assembled press. “Does anyone intelligent think that here? Show of hands. Who here is a moron? I thought so. No one thinks that. Now, am I willing to be gracious here and give Florida State an opportunity to play? I sure am. I just hope my boys can put up more of a fight than … Duke? Duke was it? They have a football team? Wow. Those shit conferences are full of amazing trivia.”&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  150. &lt;br /&gt;
  151. &lt;p&gt;Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher says his team fully expects to take the field and compete in the BCS title game against Auburn.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  152. &lt;br /&gt;
  153. &lt;p&gt;“So Nick plans to make us get past his linemen to play in the game?” said Fisher. “The same guys who were on the field for that game-ending field goal return against Auburn? Yeah, I think we’ll be okay. They looked pretty easy to get past.”&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  154. &lt;br /&gt;
  155. Kinda dropped off at the end there, but nonetheless - hilarious.&lt;br /&gt;
  156. &lt;br /&gt;
  157. &lt;p&gt;Special thanks to the &lt;a href=&#39;;&gt;Dawgbone&lt;/a&gt; who led me to the first article, which led me to the second.&lt;/p&gt;</description>

  213.    <title>Summing up the anticipation for Missouri</title>
  214.    <link></link>
  215.    <description>I think I caught myself doing what you internet people call being a &quot;troll&quot;, but I&#39;m not hip like the young kids anymore so I&#39;m probably wrong. I read every single awesome comment on &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;this article&lt;/a&gt; by the Senator. &lt;br /&gt;
  216. &lt;p&gt;All of these guys and their humorous incite sums it all up perfectly for me. So instead of putting it in my own words, I&#39;ll reaffirm points already made by some Dawg fans I&#39;d like to have a drink with:&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  217. &lt;br /&gt;
  218. &lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;&quot;Once victory is in the bag, it will no longer of been considered a big game.&quot; (twistification)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  219. &lt;li&gt;&quot;A post without a linked article! Wtf&quot; (duglite)&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  220. &lt;span class=&#39;small&#39;&gt;this one just made me lol because I&#39;m a long time reader at &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;Get The Picture&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  221. &lt;li&gt;&quot;To answer you Senator, no. I will not be suprised. I will be suprised if we have the lead and are in position to pull away in the second half&quot; (william)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  222. &lt;li&gt;&quot;Not surprised, and certainly not shocked, but I would be very pleased to get a W this week no matter how. Next week too, got to get to that bye week and begin healing. Maybe working on new schemes to fit the new personnel.&lt;br /&gt;
  223. &lt;br /&gt;
  224. Mizzou is a nightmare matchup for what we do poorly on defense. Fortunately their defense is as weak, just hope our depleted offense is good enough to exploit it. Also hope the defense is man enough to respond to yhe universal ridicule. This game is almost a tossup, being in Sanford is the only reason we have a good shot, imo. Hope I am wrong, but it really looks the same late game heroics will have to come through again….my fear is we may be too far back. But I have faith our troops will step up and bail each other out. UGA 34 MIZZOU 30&lt;br /&gt;
  225. Fingers crossed.&quot; (macallanlover)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  226. &lt;li&gt;&quot;Play Old Man Football. Tackle.&quot; (spike)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  227. &lt;li&gt;&quot;9 players that were on the team last year are now on NFL rosters. And Branden Smith was for a little while. That’s an insane loss of talent. [...] People are overreacting.&quot; (adam)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  228. &lt;li&gt;&quot;This one worries me more than any other so far. The injuries. Our defense up against an up-tempo offense. A mobile QB. An opposing team riding a win-streak, with a ton of confidence. And the many adventures of special teams. Too many things working against us.&quot; (Turd Ferguson)&lt;br /&gt;
  229. &lt;li&gt;&quot;I’m 80% sure they will be tied or behind in the second half, and I’m 70% sure Murray will do something about it.&quot; (gravidy)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  230. &lt;li&gt;&quot;Mizzou is living on early season fool’s gold with their W’s. Their best win is either Vandy or Indiana&quot; (skeptic dawg)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  231. &lt;li&gt;&quot;Only Mike Bobo. I’m convinced he drops the offensive machine into 2nd gear as we near the half just to let the other guys catch us. We play better from behind.&quot; (ausdawg85)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  232. &lt;li&gt;&quot;It was tied late in the 3rd last year, and we had Jarvis Jones. Missou’s probably better this year and we’re not. But, yeah, Aaron Murray kind of gives us a swagger we haven’t had for a while.&quot; (wilk)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  233. &lt;li&gt;&quot;The cardiac Dawgs have me in a Dr. Strangelove state of mind: I’ve learned to stop worrying and love the late game heroics.&quot; (IndyDawg)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;</description>

  238.    <title>Unsung Heroes: Rantavious Wooten &amp; J.J. Green</title>
  239.    <link></link>
  240.    <description>If it wasn&#39;t for these two unsung heroes from last Saturday&#39;s Tennessee game,  we very well may have lost. Both of these guys deserve some major props and should expect to be starters or at least used a good amount next week.&lt;br /&gt;
  241. &lt;br /&gt;
  242. I&#39;ve been a Wooten fan for probably his entire career here at UGA. When he does make a catch, big things seem to happen. He&#39;s not too shabby throwing the ball, either. I &lt;a href=&#39;;&gt;tried to tell&lt;/a&gt; him before the season he would have to step up.&lt;br /&gt;
  243. &lt;br /&gt;
  244. &lt;strong&gt;Rantavious Wooten&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  245. 6 catches for 38 yards at 6.33 yards per catch for 2 TDs &lt;br /&gt;
  246. &lt;br /&gt;
  247. And this guy, &quot;my god a freshman&quot;, right? Stepping in for the injured Keith Marshall (who was stepping in for the injured Todd Gurley), he amassed some pretty solid stats, albeit without a touchdown:&lt;br /&gt;
  248. &lt;br /&gt;
  249. &lt;strong&gt;JJ Green&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  250. 17 attempts for 129 yards at 7.59 yards per carry for 0 TDs&lt;br /&gt;
  251. &lt;br /&gt;
  252. Luckily, they both should be available for the Missouri game, and hopefully for the rest of the season. Should we pray?</description>

  268.    <description>If you&#39;re a hard working tax paying American like myself, &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;this&lt;/a&gt; should thoroughly piss you off:&lt;br /&gt;
  269. &lt;br /&gt;
  270. &lt;div class=&#39;quote&#39;&gt;welfare recipients owed $553 million&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  271. Where did the entitlement come from? Why do we owe these people anything? If that&#39;s the case, shouldn&#39;t they owe us contribution to society such as a &lt;em&gt;job&lt;/em&gt;? What about paying the system back after they can afford it, much like student loans? Quick! Cue the haters!</description>

  288.    <title>&quot;Stay Classy, Athens&quot;</title>
  289.    <link></link>
  290.    <description>Also in reference to the game with LSU tomorrow, I loved &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;this quote&lt;/a&gt; as well:&lt;br /&gt;
  291. &lt;br /&gt;
  292. &lt;div class=&#39;quote&#39;&gt;–Stay classy, Athens. We can be loud and supportive, but please be respectful. There’s no reason to personally attack any visiting fans while supporting your own team. Keep it positive, stay focused on the game (and not necessarily on the Mettenberger drama) and make it happen in an honorable way. (That is, don’t mock their version of “Battle Hymn”, so to speak.)&lt;/div&gt;</description>

  299.    <description>In reference to the LSU game tomorrow and our championship aspirations in general, &lt;a href=&#39;;utm_medium=feed&amp;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;Dr. SEC summed it up&lt;/a&gt; probably the best way I&#39;ve ever heard:&lt;br /&gt;
  300. &lt;br /&gt;
  301. &quot;If you want to be a national championship team, be a championship crowd on Saturday between the hedges.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;

  308.    <title>The Swann Story</title>
  309.    <link></link>
  310.    <description>A really good article that I read on the Athens Banner-Herald about one of my &lt;a href=&#39;;&gt;favorite players from 2013&lt;/a&gt;, &lt;a href=&#39;;&gt;Damian Swann&lt;/a&gt;. Has a few typos but is a really good read nonetheless, please take a moment and read.&lt;br /&gt;
  311. &lt;br /&gt;
  312. Damian Swann was easy to find when he &lt;i&gt;was&lt;/i&gt; little.&lt;br /&gt;
  313. &lt;br /&gt;
  314. If you knew where older brothers Mario and Tay were, chances are Damian had tagged along.&lt;br /&gt;
  315. &lt;br /&gt;
  316. Football in the front yard. Pick-up basketball in the neighborhood. Baseball at the park.&lt;br /&gt;
  317. &lt;br /&gt;
  318. But Damian couldn’t be on the same organized sports teams as his brothers — he is five years younger than Mario and 10 years younger than Tay. That put Damian on the sideline during his brothers’ practices, begging his mother, father and anyone who would listen to let him on the field.&lt;br /&gt;
  319. &lt;br /&gt;
  320. “We used to try to tell him, ‘Damian, you’re not ready yet,’” said Mona Swann, Damian’s mother. “I think that was what made him want to play sports.”&lt;br /&gt;
  321. &lt;br /&gt;
  322. He started out on carpet in the living room league between the couches. Mario and Tay would play from their knees to give their baby brother a chance. Occasionally, one would throw a block for Damian so he could dash into the designated end zone.&lt;br /&gt;
  323. &lt;br /&gt;
  324. But they didn’t always let him scoot through to score.&lt;br /&gt;
  325. &lt;br /&gt;
  326. “Sometimes all of them just tackled me,” said Damian, a junior defensive back for the Bulldogs. “I think that just helped me a lot, having somebody to grow up with, older figure to look up to. … That toughness they instilled in me is really paying off.”&lt;br /&gt;
  327. &lt;br /&gt;
  328. Damian didn’t want to lag behind his brothers, who Mona called his role models. He didn’t want to be excluded from their square-offs on the court, field or diamond. He wanted to be able to throw, tackle, hit, shoot and run like they could. As Mario and Tay went, Damian wanted to move at the same pace.&lt;br /&gt;
  329. &lt;br /&gt;
  330. “Damian is kind of different because he grew up fast around us,” Tay said. “It was like having a little big brother. He was way more mature.”&lt;br /&gt;
  331. &lt;br /&gt;
  332. ***&lt;br /&gt;
  333. &lt;br /&gt;
  334. Marlon Swann knew long before any college coaches that his youngest son could play for a top college program.&lt;br /&gt;
  335. &lt;br /&gt;
  336. Then again, Marlon began coaching Damian’s football and baseball teams when Damian was 4.&lt;br /&gt;
  337. &lt;br /&gt;
  338. He had a bit of a jump on the scouts.&lt;br /&gt;
  339. &lt;br /&gt;
  340. Marlon coached the Ben Hill Tigers pee-wee football teams until Damian moved on to middle school football but continued to coach his son in baseball until Damian last time on the diamond in high school.&lt;br /&gt;
  341. &lt;br /&gt;
  342. “We spent a lot of time together. A lot of road trips,” Marlon said, adding that baseball is actually Damian’s first love.&lt;br /&gt;
  343. &lt;br /&gt;
  344. And all that time Marlon tried to help Damian’s early maturity flourish into a tool he could use in athletics. That included coaching up the way Damian expressed himself verbally, which coincides with Damian’s goal of becoming a sports broadcaster when his football career is over, whenever that may be.&lt;br /&gt;
  345. &lt;br /&gt;
  346. “As I coached him, that was one of the things that we always talked about — being able to speak fluidly, knowing what you want to say, take your time, you’re not in a hurry,” Marlon said.&lt;br /&gt;
  347. &lt;br /&gt;
  348. That shows. Damian fields questions from reporters with care, unafraid to pause if he doesn’t have a complete thought or wants to word his answer just so. It’s all apart of the package Damian, his family and coaches have been assembling since his days at Grady High School, where he played defensive back, wide receiver, return man and even some quarterback.&lt;br /&gt;
  349. &lt;br /&gt;
  350. His junior season he recorded 67 tackles, six interceptions and caught 48 passes for 824 yards. That earned him a spot on numerous top recruiting lists and was named to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Super 11 before the start of his senior year in 2010.&lt;br /&gt;
  351. &lt;br /&gt;
  352. And he garnered the attention of Alabama’s Nick Saban and Kirby Smart. The Crimson Tide had just won their first national title under Saban, but Damian’s visit to Athens during the fall of 2010 made him grab a Georgia cap and put it on his head come signing day.&lt;br /&gt;
  353. &lt;br /&gt;
  354. “The down-home feel — they gave us nothing but love,” Marlon said.&lt;br /&gt;
  355. &lt;br /&gt;
  356. The original plan was to discuss the decision at length after getting back to Atlanta from Athens. But Damian threw that out the window, leading the way on his future path.&lt;br /&gt;
  357. &lt;br /&gt;
  358. “We were down there and he made the decision right there in Coach Richt’s office,” Marlon said.&lt;br /&gt;
  359. &lt;br /&gt;
  360. “… [That visit] really solidified which way we wanted to go. Just the homey feel and just being close to home because he’s a family-oriented guy. The closer to his family, the better.”&lt;br /&gt;
  361. &lt;br /&gt;
  362. It was in Athens that Damian has found his second family as he is in the midst of his second season as a start for the Bulldogs. It’s a friendship he cultivated with former Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones, now with the Pittsburgh Steelers, that helped Damian build on a “loyalty before royalty” principle — look after the people who look after him. The phrase, coined by Jones, Damian says, just carries over the concept he grew up with. And his teammates take note of the character trait Damian says he got from his dad.&lt;br /&gt;
  363. &lt;br /&gt;
  364. “You know he cares about everybody and he cares about the team,” safety Connor Norman said. “He’s definitely a guy that I’d call if I had a problem or something, he’d be there to help.”&lt;br /&gt;
  365. &lt;br /&gt;
  366. Damian is there to build on his 58-tackle, four-interception performance from last season and help the defense dig itself out of being ranked 104th nationally through its first two outings this.&lt;br /&gt;
  367. &lt;br /&gt;
  368. Regardless of the statistics, Tay Swann pinches himself when he watches his baby brother in Georgia’s uniform.&lt;br /&gt;
  369. &lt;br /&gt;
  370. “What’s it like now? It’s amazing,” he said. “It’s unexplainable. I can’t explain it.”&lt;br /&gt;
  371. &lt;br /&gt;
  372. ***&lt;br /&gt;
  373. &lt;br /&gt;
  374. There is a moment Mona, Marlon and Tay have filed away in their memories that they recall with pure joy.&lt;br /&gt;
  375. &lt;br /&gt;
  376. Their Damian, who is no longer too little to play with his brothers but has outgrown the living room league, had picked off Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez in the second quarter of the Capital One Bowl on New Year’s Day in Orlando. It was his first of two interceptions in the game, bringing his season total to a team-leading four.&lt;br /&gt;
  377. &lt;br /&gt;
  378. Through the celebration with teammates, he found his family in the stands. With a simple hand gesture, he cemented that play in the heart of his family.&lt;br /&gt;
  379. &lt;br /&gt;
  380. “He had an interception and he pointed to the family and we just went crazy,” Mona said. “I think that was my favorite game.”&lt;br /&gt;
  381. &lt;br /&gt;
  382. “He pointed like, ‘I’m watching y’all. I see y’all watching,’ “ Tay said.&lt;br /&gt;
  383. &lt;br /&gt;
  384. “The day he got the interception and came back to the crowd and pointed up at the family — that was the big day for us. There are always six or eight of us. We have not missed a game since Damian has been at school,” Marlon said. “And that goes all the way back to middle school.”&lt;br /&gt;
  385. &lt;br /&gt;
  386. Since there have been silver bleachers on the sidelines at Damian’s games, his family has been in them for every game — home and away. And when he played at Grady High School, it was the 50-yard line every Friday night.&lt;br /&gt;
  387. &lt;br /&gt;
  388. “That’s what I always used to tell people — you can meet me on the 50,” Marlon said with a laugh.&lt;br /&gt;
  389. &lt;br /&gt;
  390. Damian finds his family during warm-ups, scanning the family section for the faces he knows better than any others.&lt;br /&gt;
  391. &lt;br /&gt;
  392. “I blow him kisses and I make sure that he knows where I’m sitting,” Mona said.&lt;br /&gt;
  393. &lt;br /&gt;
  394. The Swanns view Damian’s football career as a family sport — they travel for it, even to Columbia, Mo., prepare for it and are staples in Sanford Stadiums for home games.&lt;br /&gt;
  395. &lt;br /&gt;
  396. “Every chance they get, they’re here and I really appreciate that,” Damian said. “I’ve always had a great support system.”&lt;br /&gt;
  397. &lt;br /&gt;
  398. But it’s not on the football field where Damian has the biggest effect on his family. It’s when he makes the 75-minute drive home to the southwest side of Atlanta for his cousin’s high school graduation, his nephew’s youth football game or just to gobble up a plate of his mom’s spaghetti and spend some quality time with those who look after him.&lt;br /&gt;
  399. &lt;br /&gt;
  400. Even though Damian says he’s a homebody when he visits home, it’s an event nonetheless.&lt;br /&gt;
  401. &lt;br /&gt;
  402. “It’s a spectacular event when Damian comes to Atlanta,” Marlon said. “The world will stop. … Everybody wants to see him. He’s well-known and well-loved around the city of Atlanta.”&lt;br /&gt;
  403. &lt;br /&gt;
  404. Added Mona: “When he comes home and he comes around, everybody just lights up like he’s a movie star or something.”&lt;br /&gt;
  405. &lt;br /&gt;
  406. Now he is on the front end of No. 9 Georgia’s season, trying to put a decade and a half of that training to work as the veteran of the Bulldogs’ much-scrutinized secondary.&lt;br /&gt;
  407. &lt;br /&gt;
  408. “It’s kind of cool, I got to see him develop over the past three years and he’s turned into a great player,” Norman said. “We kind of go how Damian goes, so he’s a big part of our secondary.”&lt;br /&gt;
  409. &lt;br /&gt;
  410. And the Swanns will be watching all season from the stands.&lt;br /&gt;
  411. &lt;br /&gt;
  412. “I noticed he’s leading in the huddle, trying to pep them up and I think the last game he played I think I saw him trying to pep the team up and everything,” Mona said. “I think he has tried to be a leader.”&lt;br /&gt;
  413. &lt;br /&gt;

  423.    <description>&lt;h3&gt;A Workaround to Support Natural Sorting in MySQL&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;Several times in the last few projects I’ve built, I’ve come across  the need to sort alphanumeric rows in a database by number (i.e. entry1,  entry2, entry3, etc.). If you’ve ever tried to do this, you know that  natural sorting in MySQL with alphanumeric entries is a pain.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  424. &lt;br /&gt;
  425. &lt;h3&gt;The Data&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;For our purposes, we’ll be using the following table:&lt;/p&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  426. &lt;br /&gt;
  427. &lt;pre&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  428. Table: sorting_test&lt;br /&gt;
  429. -------------------------- -------------&lt;br /&gt;
  430. | alphanumeric VARCHAR(75) | integer INT |&lt;br /&gt;
  431. -------------------------- -------------&lt;br /&gt;
  432. | test1                    | 1           |&lt;br /&gt;
  433. | test2                    | 2           |&lt;br /&gt;
  434. | test3                    | 3           |&lt;br /&gt;
  435. | test4                    | 4           |&lt;br /&gt;
  436. | test5                    | 5           |&lt;br /&gt;
  437. | test6                    | 6           |&lt;br /&gt;
  438. | test7                    | 7           |&lt;br /&gt;
  439. | test8                    | 8           |&lt;br /&gt;
  440. | test9                    | 9           |&lt;br /&gt;
  441. | test10                   | 10          |&lt;br /&gt;
  442. | test11                   | 11          |&lt;br /&gt;
  443. | test12                   | 12          |&lt;br /&gt;
  444. -------------------------- -------------&lt;br /&gt;
  445. &lt;/pre&gt; &lt;h3&gt;The Problem&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;Sorting by the column integer, of course, presents no problems.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;pre&gt;Query: SELECT alphanumeric, integer&lt;br /&gt;
  446.       FROM sorting_test&lt;br /&gt;
  447.       ORDER BY integer&lt;br /&gt;
  448. -------------------------- -------------&lt;br /&gt;
  449. | alphanumeric VARCHAR(75) | integer INT |&lt;br /&gt;
  450. -------------------------- -------------&lt;br /&gt;
  451. | test1                    | 1           |&lt;br /&gt;
  452. | test2                    | 2           |&lt;br /&gt;
  453. | test3                    | 3           |&lt;br /&gt;
  454. | test4                    | 4           |&lt;br /&gt;
  455. | test5                    | 5           |&lt;br /&gt;
  456. | test6                    | 6           |&lt;br /&gt;
  457. | test7                    | 7           |&lt;br /&gt;
  458. | test8                    | 8           |&lt;br /&gt;
  459. | test9                    | 9           |&lt;br /&gt;
  460. | test10                   | 10          |&lt;br /&gt;
  461. | test11                   | 11          |&lt;br /&gt;
  462. | test12                   | 12          |&lt;br /&gt;
  463. -------------------------- -------------&lt;br /&gt;
  464. &lt;/pre&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  465. &lt;br /&gt;
  466. &lt;p&gt;However, when we try sorting by the alphanumeric column, we get unexpected results:&lt;/p&gt; &lt;pre&gt;Query: SELECT alphanumeric, integer&lt;br /&gt;
  467.       FROM sorting_test&lt;br /&gt;
  468.       ORDER BY alphanumeric&lt;br /&gt;
  469. -------------------------- -------------&lt;br /&gt;
  470. | alphanumeric VARCHAR(75) | integer INT |&lt;br /&gt;
  471. -------------------------- -------------&lt;br /&gt;
  472. | test1                    | 1           |&lt;br /&gt;
  473. | test10                   | 10          |&lt;br /&gt;
  474. | test11                   | 11          |&lt;br /&gt;
  475. | test12                   | 12          |&lt;br /&gt;
  476. | test2                    | 2           |&lt;br /&gt;
  477. | test3                    | 3           |&lt;br /&gt;
  478. | test4                    | 4           |&lt;br /&gt;
  479. | test5                    | 5           |&lt;br /&gt;
  480. | test6                    | 6           |&lt;br /&gt;
  481. | test7                    | 7           |&lt;br /&gt;
  482. | test8                    | 8           |&lt;br /&gt;
  483. | test9                    | 9           |&lt;br /&gt;
  484. -------------------------- -------------&lt;/pre&gt; &lt;p&gt;Obviously, this is not the desired outcome. Since we’re sorting  alphabetically, the entries are actually in the correct order, but we  need to find a way to sort numerically.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This is called “natural sorting” in MySQL. Actually, it’s called  natural sorting everywhere. What it means is, in layman’s terms, a human  being would &lt;em&gt;naturally&lt;/em&gt; sort the items with the count in order.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;However, as far as MySQL is concerned the above output is  alphabetical. If you swap the numbers for letters, the way MySQL sorts  these items makes much more sense:&lt;/p&gt; &lt;pre&gt;Query: SELECT alphanumeric, integer&lt;br /&gt;
  485.       FROM sorting_test&lt;br /&gt;
  486.       ORDER BY alphanumeric&lt;br /&gt;
  487. -------------------------- -------------&lt;br /&gt;
  488. | alphanumeric VARCHAR(75) | integer INT |&lt;br /&gt;
  489. -------------------------- -------------&lt;br /&gt;
  490. | testA                    | 1           |&lt;br /&gt;
  491. | testAA                   | 10          |&lt;br /&gt;
  492. | testAB                   | 11          |&lt;br /&gt;
  493. | testAC                   | 12          |&lt;br /&gt;
  494. | testB                    | 2           |&lt;br /&gt;
  495. | testC                    | 3           |&lt;br /&gt;
  496. | testD                    | 4           |&lt;br /&gt;
  497. | testE                    | 5           |&lt;br /&gt;
  498. | testF                    | 6           |&lt;br /&gt;
  499. | testG                    | 7           |&lt;br /&gt;
  500. | testH                    | 8           |&lt;br /&gt;
  501. | testI                    | 9           |&lt;br /&gt;
  502. -------------------------- -------------&lt;/pre&gt; &lt;h3&gt;The Solution&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;There are a whole lot of solutions out there if you hit up Google, and you can, of course, just use the &lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;natsort()&lt;/a&gt; function in PHP, but it’s simple enough to accomplish natural sorting in MySQL: sort by length first, then the column value.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;pre&gt;Query: SELECT alphanumeric, integer&lt;br /&gt;
  503.       FROM sorting_test&lt;br /&gt;
  504.       ORDER BY LENGTH(alphanumeric), alphanumeric&lt;br /&gt;
  505. -------------------------- -------------&lt;br /&gt;
  506. | alphanumeric VARCHAR(75) | integer INT |&lt;br /&gt;
  507. -------------------------- -------------&lt;br /&gt;
  508. | test1                    | 1           |&lt;br /&gt;
  509. | test2                    | 2           |&lt;br /&gt;
  510. | test3                    | 3           |&lt;br /&gt;
  511. | test4                    | 4           |&lt;br /&gt;
  512. | test5                    | 5           |&lt;br /&gt;
  513. | test6                    | 6           |&lt;br /&gt;
  514. | test7                    | 7           |&lt;br /&gt;
  515. | test8                    | 8           |&lt;br /&gt;
  516. | test9                    | 9           |&lt;br /&gt;
  517. | test10                   | 10          |&lt;br /&gt;
  518. | test11                   | 11          |&lt;br /&gt;
  519. | test12                   | 12          |&lt;br /&gt;
  520. -------------------------- -------------&lt;/pre&gt; &lt;p&gt;This works because the first nine entries are 5 characters long, with  the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth entries at 6 characters; this creates  two groups of entries that are then sub-sorted, resulting in our desired  order. This is called “natural sorting”.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;h3&gt;Summary&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;This is a quick tip, but a useful one. Do you have a better way of  forcing natural sorting in MySQL? Let me know in the comments!&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;

  527.    <title>Murray &amp; Boyd: Oh my, the irony. </title>
  528.    <link></link>
  529.    <description>You know, I&#39;ve decided I&#39;m no longer going to blog. I&#39;m just gonna regurgitate UGA awesomeness that I find layin&#39; around on the inter-webs. It&#39;s easier.&lt;br /&gt;
  530. &lt;div class=&#39;quote&#39;&gt;But this game, this top-10 matchup between Georgia and Clemson is different.&lt;br /&gt;
  531. &lt;br /&gt;
  532. Murray and Boyd have been the crucial cog in the machines as their programs have piled on wins while eliminating losses in the last three seasons. Both Georgia and Clemson compiled 6-7 records in 2010, 10-4 records in 2011 and added more wins in 2012 — Georgia at 12-2 and Clemson at 11-2.&lt;br /&gt;
  533. &lt;br /&gt;
  534. And now?&lt;br /&gt;
  535. &lt;br /&gt;
  536. “Irony is, for each of them to get to where they really want to be and deserve to be, they have to go through each other,” Whitfield said. “And it’s the season opener, too.”&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;

  587.    <description>Introducing Aaron Murray. 20-1. &lt;br /&gt;
  588. h/t &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;the Senator&lt;/a&gt; for the find.&lt;br /&gt;
  589. &lt;div class=&#39;quote&#39;&gt;A compelling argument can be made for all three quarterbacks having the best season. Murray is poised to break several SEC passing records. McCarron is far from a game manager.&lt;br /&gt;
  590. &lt;br /&gt;
  591. There&#39;s a part of me that thinks Murray will have the biggest year. As points out, Murray had a ridiculous 20-to-1 touchdown/turnover ratio in the second halves of games last season. Georgia has been too close for too long not to break through.&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  592. &lt;span class=&#39;small&#39;&gt;&lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;Link&lt;/a&gt; - &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;Photo&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;</description>

  609. &lt;br /&gt;
  610. Mon, Jan 6 8:30 pm ESPN&lt;br /&gt;
  611. &lt;b&gt;VIZIO BCS National Championship&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  612. Rose Bowl, Pasadena, CA&lt;br /&gt;
  613. BCS No 1 vs. BCS No 2&lt;br /&gt;
  614. &lt;br /&gt;
  615. CFN Preview 2013 Projected Matchup: Georgia vs. Texas&lt;br /&gt;
  616. &lt;br /&gt;
  617. Top Three Other Options: 1) Alabama, 2) Oregon, 3) Florida State&lt;br /&gt;
  618. &lt;br /&gt;
  619. Why? It&#39;s the national championship in Pasadena; of course Texas has to be involved. The Longhorns lost the 2010 BCS championship to Alabama after Colt McCoy got knocked out right away, and, of course, Vince Young came up with his magnum opus in the 2007 Rose Bowl win over USC. The 2013 Longhorns are overdue under Mack Brown with 20 starters returning and a weakened Big 12 to get through. Assume one loss along the way to Oklahoma or at TCU,  but if the team finally, finally starts to play up to its talent level again - granted, that&#39;s a big, giant if - and it&#39;s able to hold serve at home against Ole Miss, Kansas State, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech, this should be the best of the one-loss teams.  &lt;br /&gt;
  620. &lt;br /&gt;
  621. The winner of the SEC championship will be a mortal lock for California as long as there aren&#39;t any other BCS unbeatens. The Dawgs will lose once along the way, but a victory over Alabama or LSU will give Mark Richt the chance to finally get the big game gorilla off of his back in the first meeting against the Longhorns since the 10-9 win in the 1984 Cotton Bowl.</description>

  637.    <link></link>
  638.    <description>I found this mildly entertaining. Just browsing through articles on ESPN and this tidbit struck me as... something I just had to post.&lt;br /&gt;
  639. &lt;div class=&#39;quote&#39;&gt; Everyone stood around, the band warming up. Without so much as a nod, the Crotch Shot Ninjas struck: Paul punched Nate in the nuts, and, simultaneously, Johnny kicked Bryan and hit Colton, both in the balls, both at the same time, and as the three dudes doubled over and the band howled in laughter, Johnny and Paul gave each other a fist bump. Mission accomplished. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  640. I&#39;m starting to like Johnny Manziel&#39;s mannerisms.&lt;br /&gt;

  646.    <title>Dawg Fans, Get your FREE NCAA Football 14 Rosters here!</title>
  647.    <link></link>
  648.    <description>I kept seeing ads on &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;The Dawgbone&lt;/a&gt; asking me to buy some updated rosters for NCAA Football 14, EA&#39;s new release to its college football franchise. I checked into it, and the price they are asking is insane. So, I did a simple google search, and came up with this.&lt;br /&gt;
  649. &lt;br /&gt;
  650. PastaPadre has released one of the first updated and fairly accurate versions of the roster -- for free! I only checked UGA, but it seemed to be pretty accurate. Here&#39;s the info you need:&lt;br /&gt;

  660.    <title>FSU player receives &quot;SEC&quot; championship ring</title>
  661.    <link></link>
  662.    <description>Apparently, FSU offensive lineman Menelik Watson received his ACC championship ring from their 21-15 win over GT from last season. The only problem is, it reads &quot;SEC Championship&quot; rather than &quot;ACC...&quot;.&lt;br /&gt;
  663. &lt;br /&gt;
  664. I guess everyone who beats Tech goes on to play in the SEC championship, &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;via;/a&gt;. Either that, or this SEC envy is getting ridiculous.</description>

  669.    <title>Help, Dawg Fans! UGA is still losing to Nebraska!</title>
  670.    <link></link>
  671.    <description>As &lt;a href=&#39;;&gt;posted&lt;/a&gt; yesterday, Georgia is &lt;i&gt;still&lt;/i&gt; losing to Nebraska in Round 1 of &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;ESPN&#39;s Ultimate Team&lt;/a&gt;. The numbers have shifted in our favor some, but there&#39;s still too many Big10/Big12 fans voting against us.&lt;br /&gt;
  672. &lt;br /&gt;
  673. Rectify this situation. NOW!&lt;br /&gt;
  674. &lt;br /&gt;
  675. You must tweet your votes to  &lt;a href=&#39;;src=hash&#39; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;#UltimateTeam&lt;/a&gt; for your votes to count. However, you can login right from &lt;a href=&quot;; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;ESPN&#39;s Ultimate Team&lt;/a&gt;.</description>

  680.    <title>Vote for UGA in ESPN&#39;s Ultimate Team</title>
  681.    <link></link>
  682.    <description>&lt;p&gt;Dawg Fans: Hurry now, to &lt;a href=&quot;; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;ESPN&#39;s Ultimate Team Ballot&lt;/a&gt;!  &lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  683. &lt;br /&gt;
  684. &lt;p&gt;As I make this post, UGA is currently matched up against and trailing Nebraska 62% to 38%. We&#39;ve got a hell of a lot of ground to make up.  &lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  685. &lt;br /&gt;
  686. &lt;p&gt;I&#39;ll admit, I totally ignored Nebraska&#39;s roster when selecting UGA. Yes, that was a homer move. Don&#39;t give a shit. The rest of my votes are honest; I carefully scanned each team&#39;s roster -- I cringed when I selected Auburn.&lt;/p&lt;br /&gt;
  687. &lt;br /&gt;
  688. &lt;p&gt; Here&#39;s a rundown of my votes from Round 1 (my selections &lt;u&gt;underlined&lt;/u&gt;):  &lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  689. &lt;br /&gt;
  690. &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;&lt;u&gt;Miami&lt;/u&gt; vs Penn State&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;u&gt;Alabama&lt;/u&gt; vs Oklahoma&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;u&gt;Georgia&lt;/u&gt; vs Nebraska&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Florida vs &lt;u&gt;Tennessee&lt;/u&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Ohio St vs &lt;u&gt;Notre Dame&lt;/u&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Michigan vs &lt;u&gt;Florida State&lt;/u&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Texas vs &lt;u&gt;LSU&lt;/u&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;USC vs &lt;u&gt;Auburn&lt;/u&gt;&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  691. &lt;p&gt;Looking back at my votes after the fact, some extensive SEC bias seems to be at play. That&#39;s not what I originally intended to happen, though.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  692. &lt;p&gt;  You must tweet your votes to  &lt;a href=&#39;;src=hash&#39; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;#UltimateTeam&lt;/a&gt; for your votes to count. However, you can login right from &lt;a href=&quot;; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;ESPN&#39;s Ultimate Team&lt;/a&gt;. &lt;/p&gt;</description>

  697.    <title>David Pollack named best DE in BCS era</title>
  698.    <link></link>
  699.    <description>&lt;b&gt;1. David Pollack, DE, Georgia&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  700. The Bulldogs&#39; defensive end is the most decorated defensive lineman of the BCS era. Pollack is a three-time first-team All-SEC and All-American, twice earning consensus All-American honors. He won the SEC Player of the Year award twice in 2002 and &#39;04 as well as the Bednarik, Hendricks (twice), Lombardi and Lott Awards. He and roommate David Greene helped lead Georgia to its first SEC title (2002) in two decades. His highlight-reel plays — namely against South Carolina — and UGA all-time sack record (36.0) makes him the greatest defensive lineman of the BCS era. - &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;Athlon Sports&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  701. &lt;br /&gt;
  702. Personal note: I&#39;m really starting to like these guys over at Athlon Sports.&lt;br /&gt;

  731.    <title>Todd Gurley named #1 SEC RB for 2013 by Athlon</title>
  732.    <link></link>
  733.    <description>&lt;b&gt;1. Todd Gurley, Georgia (SO)&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  734. &lt;br /&gt;
  735. The 6-foot-1, 218-pound sophomore from Tarboro (N.C.) High is anything but the vibe his surname portrays. The physical monster stepped right into the lineup as a freshman and made fans in Athens forget all about dismissed SEC Freshman of the Year Isaiah Crowell. Gurley was just the second UGA freshman to top 1,000 yards (1,385) and set the freshman school record with 17 touchdowns. He has the power to plow through the interior of SEC defenses and the speed to outrun SEC linebackers and safeties. He even returned kicks at times last year, scoring on an NCAA-record 100-yard return in his first career game.&lt;br /&gt;
  736. &lt;br /&gt;

  846. (feat. B.O.B, Hopsin)&lt;br /&gt;
  847. &lt;br /&gt;
  848. [Intro]&lt;br /&gt;
  849. I see you looking at me&lt;br /&gt;
  850. Looking at me, so I ask&lt;br /&gt;
  851. &lt;br /&gt;
  852. [Hook]&lt;br /&gt;
  853. Am I a psycho? Am I a psycho?&lt;br /&gt;
  854. Yeah I’m a psycho, I guess I’m a psycho&lt;br /&gt;
  855. &lt;br /&gt;
  856. [Verse 1: Tech]&lt;br /&gt;
  857. You’re crazy, I like you, but you’re crazy, my tours paid me&lt;br /&gt;
  858. So I used that dough to allure ladies to manure bathe me&lt;br /&gt;
  859. Never that; my minds for sure shady&lt;br /&gt;
  860. Pure Hades, Rev X Steady couldn’t endure to save me&lt;br /&gt;
  861. Why did I let this stripper burn me on my arm with a cigarette&lt;br /&gt;
  862. In the same spot 10 times in a row when I feel that burn I palm the clitoris&lt;br /&gt;
  863. I’ma get her wet, sorry to get carried away, I feel stupid cause I ain’t did her yet&lt;br /&gt;
  864. Maybe she never let a fine nigga stare at her breasts, and get vexed, so N9NE bit her neck&lt;br /&gt;
  865. Open! I try to contain it but that bang thang’s soakin’&lt;br /&gt;
  866. Alter ego say why you let them gang bang folk in&lt;br /&gt;
  867. Strange Lane hopin’ I can maintain coping&lt;br /&gt;
  868. But ain’t nobody talkin when the insane mane spoken&lt;br /&gt;
  869. I like fire on my skin, blood on my draws&lt;br /&gt;
  870. From up on her walls, I’m suffering, I’m stuck in her claws&lt;br /&gt;
  871. Stuffed in her jaws, huffin’ and puffin’ hollerin&#39; I&#39;m a dog, afterwards I like really hot scalding water on my balls&lt;br /&gt;
  872. &lt;br /&gt;
  873. [Hook]&lt;br /&gt;
  874. &lt;br /&gt;
  875. [Verse 2: Hopsin]&lt;br /&gt;
  876. Mom? Dad? I’m no longer the boy you’re used to seeing&lt;br /&gt;
  877. I’ve changed a lot, plus I’ve grown to hate every human being&lt;br /&gt;
  878. My mood swings have now turned my dreams into gruesome scenes&lt;br /&gt;
  879. Now I’m doing things I don’t normally do&lt;br /&gt;
  880. When illusions seem to be the only pleasures I can gain&lt;br /&gt;
  881. Heck, if I was sane I would have put down the mic and said fuck it I’ll never rise to fame&lt;br /&gt;
  882. But with the wicked wreckage I contain, I could probably jeopardize your name&lt;br /&gt;
  883. No lovey-dovey let’s ignite the flame if you’re lucky you survive the pain&lt;br /&gt;
  884. Sorry that ain’t very merry to say, why is this game so scary to play?&lt;br /&gt;
  885. Well let me think, cause every day my balls are getting too hairy to shave&lt;br /&gt;
  886. Pause a minute, I’m stressin’ the game if I go to hell, then heaven’s to blame&lt;br /&gt;
  887. I don’t mean to come off crazy but you mothafuckas seem to think that I’m hella deranged&lt;br /&gt;
  888. When I was seven years old, I fell on my head and I severed my brain&lt;br /&gt;
  889. If you think I’m lying then ask my mama nigga she’ll go tell you the same&lt;br /&gt;
  890. Should I be ashamed? No, I’m living my life so ghetto fabulous&lt;br /&gt;
  891. Before you get bent outta shape, my nigga let me ask you this&lt;br /&gt;
  892. &lt;br /&gt;
  893. [Hook]&lt;br /&gt;
  894. &lt;br /&gt;
  895. [Verse 3: B.o.B]&lt;br /&gt;
  896. I stab you with this mic and rap this verse I’m rappin’ to you&lt;br /&gt;
  897. Matter fact I’m rapping through you, never say my motherfucking name&lt;br /&gt;
  898. Unless you absolutely have to I am not no fucking jacket&lt;br /&gt;
  899. With no matching shoes and you are not no fashion guru&lt;br /&gt;
  900. Can’t even see you niggas, y’all wish I was rappin’ to you&lt;br /&gt;
  901. Matter of fact act like I’m rappin’ to you if that gives you passion&lt;br /&gt;
  902. To use as an excuse to jump out of conclusion&lt;br /&gt;
  903. That I’m attackin you dudes, it&#39;s just like old fashion voodoo&lt;br /&gt;
  904. Y’all ain’t even the shit, no ya’ll ain’t even the doodoo&lt;br /&gt;
  905. I got more flavor on the tissue paper under my two boots&lt;br /&gt;
  906. So I’m slapping you fools with wooden paddles you stupid&lt;br /&gt;
  907. Baby sit in little baskets like little afternoon children&lt;br /&gt;
  908. You can call me psychotic but it’s more like schizophrenic&lt;br /&gt;
  909. And I can speak can anyone tell me just where my medicine is&lt;br /&gt;
  910. Guess I gotta show these minors just where my avenue is&lt;br /&gt;
  911. Man I swear I’m all about my brain like graduate students&lt;br /&gt;
  912. I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings&lt;br /&gt;
  913. I see your tears, come here, give me your face, let me clear it&lt;br /&gt;
  914. But I wonder how it would look if I could peel it back with a skillet&lt;br /&gt;
  915. Then I would feel it crack when I hit it, then I’mma split it back when you heal it&lt;br /&gt;
  916. Dammit Bobby boy, what in the hell, what in the heaven, what in the Earth&lt;br /&gt;
  917. Where is your mom? Why do you curse? Where are you from?&lt;br /&gt;
  918. Where was your birth? Where were you first? Why weren’t you in church?&lt;br /&gt;
  919. Why is there dirt, all on your shirt? Man I think that you’re going berserk..&lt;br /&gt;

  926.    <title>Favorite UGA players - 2013</title>
  927.    <link></link>
  928.    <description>I&#39;m a die hard bulldog fan. I live, breathe, and dream Georgia football. It&#39;s a drug to me. I wake up some nights in a panic sweat; screaming about 2nd &amp; 10 run plays, poor pass protection, and last second clock mismanagement. I don&#39;t care about rivals, haters, nay-Sayers; it&#39;s all part of the game.&lt;br /&gt;
  929. &lt;br /&gt;
  930. I felt like it was finally time to compile a list of my personal favorite UGA players. Mind you, this is a current list, not an all-time favorite list. So without further due, here are my top 10 favorite UGA players on our current roster.&lt;br /&gt;
  931. &lt;br /&gt;
  932. &lt;b&gt;1. Aaron Murray&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  933. Who doesn&#39;t love this guy. If you don&#39;t, or if you fall into the &quot;can&#39;t win the big game&quot; crowd, then you&#39;re more than likely a bandwagon fan, and we don&#39;t care about your opinion anyways. This guy kicks ass and he&#39;s a proven winner. Go back to his high school highlights. Remember why you were so excited his freshman season? Look at him now.&lt;br /&gt;
  934. &lt;br /&gt;
  935. &lt;b&gt;2. Blake Sailors&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  936. White boy! How many times can you recall Sailors smashing a kick/punt returner? He also wore my number for a brief time last year (#3). I love his attitude and how he progressed as a CB from being a walk-on.&lt;br /&gt;
  937. &lt;br /&gt;
  938. &lt;b&gt;3. Todd Gurley&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  939. I&#39;ve been a gurley man since his first game as a bulldog. Dude&#39;s a beast, plain and simple. And oh yeah, he also wears my number (#3). Looking forward to seeing this guy run over defenders in 2013.&lt;br /&gt;
  940. &lt;br /&gt;
  941. &lt;b&gt;4. Malcolm Mitchell&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  942. What is there to say about our explosive receiver? The guy can do anything. Can he throw the ball, too? He reminds me a lot of AJ Green at how he just refuses to go down after the catch. He wants to score on every touch.&lt;br /&gt;
  943. &lt;br /&gt;
  944. &lt;b&gt;5. Arthur Lynch&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  945. Mr. &lt;a href=&#39;news-arthur-lynch-big-white-man_131.html&#39;&gt;&quot;I&#39;ve never seen a big white man so surprised to see so much space in front of him&quot;&lt;/a&gt; is going to be a beast in his final year as a bulldog. Mark my words. Tony Gonzalez style.&lt;br /&gt;
  946. &lt;br /&gt;
  947. &lt;b&gt;6. Rhett McGowan&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  948. Go white boy! Our next sure handed wide receiver following Kris Durham. I love me some possession receiver white boys. They are a big part of what&#39;s great about college football. And I can almost bet you he will be one of the starting 4, maybe even 3.&lt;br /&gt;
  949. &lt;br /&gt;
  950. &lt;b&gt;7. Damian Swann&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  951. You made my list for your &lt;a href=&#39;news-damian-swann-cb-for-espns-2012-all-bowl-team_132.html&#39;&gt;bowl performance&lt;/a&gt;. I know you&#39;ve been blown up a few times (Amari Cooper immediately comes to mind), but I know your potential has yet to be unleashed. I think that flying swan move of yours after a big play is going to become a staple.&lt;br /&gt;
  952. &lt;br /&gt;
  953. &lt;b&gt;8. Chris Conley&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  954. Conley to me has a great combination of speed, smart route running, and catching skills. He&#39;s got the whole package but hes not necessarily excellent in any facet. He&#39;s just an all around good dependable receiver. He&#39;ll be looked to next year to be a leader at his position.&lt;br /&gt;
  955. &lt;br /&gt;
  956. &lt;b&gt;9. Rantavious Wooten&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  957. I know you got it in you, man. You&#39;ve been around for a while now. Now it&#39;s time to show your speed and skills as a receiver. You&#39;re going to have to step up now.&lt;br /&gt;
  958. &lt;br /&gt;
  959. &lt;b&gt;10. Marshall Morgan&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  960. Bet you&#39;re surprised this guy made the list, huh? I&#39;m sorry but I have immense faith in this kid. He&#39;s going to either be a great kicker or a horrible one. We seem to be &quot;Kicker U&quot; and put out some good ones. I have faith that he&#39;s going to kick some game winners for us next season. We&#39;re going to need him.&lt;br /&gt;
  961. &lt;br /&gt;
  962. &lt;b&gt;Honorable Mention:&lt;/b&gt; Collin Barber (hopefully we don&#39;t need you all that much next year), Keith Marshall (love your catch in that Nebraska game, I expect we&#39;ll see more of that next season), Jordan Jenkins (will you or won&#39;t you be my Jarvis Jones?)</description>

  967.    <title>Damian Swann; CB for ESPN&#39;s 2012 All-Bowl Team</title>
  968.    <link></link>
  969.    <description>&quot;Swann set up a touchdown in the first half and then helped Georgia protect a lead in its 45-31 victory over Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl in Orlando, Fla., on New Year&#39;s Day. In the first half, Swann intercepted a Taylor Martinez pass and returned it 19 yards to help set up Todd Gurley&#39;s 24-yard touchdown run for a 23-14 lead. In the fourth quarter, Swann intercepted another pass at the Georgia 7 to put the Cornhuskers away for good. Swann, a sophomore from Atlanta, also had six tackles.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  970. &lt;br /&gt;
  971. Personal Note: Swann is quickly becoming one of my favorite players on this rebuilding Georgia squad. He seems to be filling into Boykin&#39;s old role quite nicely and seems like a more solid tackler than B. Smith. The guy could be a shutdown corner by the team he leaves Athens.&lt;br /&gt;
  972. &lt;br /&gt;

  979.    <link></link>
  980.    <description>On Arthur Lynch&#39;s performance in the Capital One Bowl on New Years Day: &quot;Arthur Lynch certainly has developed as the season has progressed. I&#39;ve never seen a big white man look more surprised to see open space in front of him on that first touchdown.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;

  986.    <title>The Propecy hath been foretold - UGA vs Bama</title>
  987.    <link></link>
  988.    <description>Our beloved #3 Georgia Bulldogs are all set to play the #2 Alabama Crimson Tide for the SEC Championship. I predicted this at seasons beginning. My brother and a close friend could vouch for that. I also predicted Arkansas being overrated (before Petrino was fired), but didn&#39;t think they&#39;d be quite this bad. But that&#39;s for another day.&lt;br /&gt;
  989. &lt;br /&gt;
  990. My brother is your typical arrogant Bama fan. The main difference though is that he is &quot;football smart&quot;. This man is one of the few people I can have an intelligent and insightful college football discussion with. We both despise the NFL, but obviously support the Falcons over any one else.&lt;br /&gt;
  991. &lt;br /&gt;
  992. He&#39;s not a big Bobo fan. I wasn&#39;t either in Cox&#39;s one and Murray&#39;s first years. The past two years though I&#39;ve been pleasantly surprised with his growth. He&#39;s simply &quot;done the damn thing&quot; this year and deserves credit for that. Being one of the 5 finalists for the Broyle&#39;s assistant trophy is proof of that.&lt;br /&gt;
  993. &lt;br /&gt;
  994. Can we do it? ESPN and most media outlets don&#39;t think so. I like playing the role of the underdog. Georgia seems to do better in this scenario (with the exception of LSU last season, first quarter not withholding). I think we can. In fact, I know we can. If we play ball like we did against a good Vandy and Ole Miss team, I like our chances.&lt;br /&gt;
  995. &lt;br /&gt;
  996. We&#39;ve lost two of our best receivers and they have lost one. We&#39;ve gotten our other guys ready knowing they&#39;ll have to play. Can they do it in as little of time? I think we just simply have more play makers. A couple things that worry me:&lt;br /&gt;
  997. &lt;br /&gt;
  998. 1. &lt;b&gt;The Saban Factor.&lt;/b&gt; If I had to pick a coach in the SEC East to face the mighty Nick Saban it would have to be Mark Richt. Can anyone honestly disagree with that? That doesn&#39;t mean Richt is a head up on Saban, I just think it levels the playing field a bit. Saban is a proven master of his system and will be a challenge himself.&lt;br /&gt;
  999. &lt;br /&gt;
  1000. 2. &lt;b&gt;UGA offensive Playcalling.&lt;/b&gt; If we come out conservative, it&#39;s going to be a long day. We need to pass some on first down (and I don&#39;t mean first and bomb). What happened to some quick hitting slants and screens?&lt;br /&gt;
  1001. &lt;br /&gt;
  1002. 3. &lt;b&gt;Bama Defense.&lt;/b&gt; This goes back to the first point, but if they play lights out, it&#39;ll also be a very long day. We need some protection from the offensive line - they don&#39;t have a stand out pass rusher.&lt;br /&gt;
  1003. &lt;br /&gt;
  1004. 4. &lt;b&gt;Our defense.&lt;/b&gt; Can our defense shine on the big stage? Jarvis Jones needs to light AJ up; with Shawn Williams they need to keep our defense focused and fired up.&lt;br /&gt;
  1005. &lt;br /&gt;
  1006. I think our running backs are better than theirs. The only problem is the offensive lines they are running through. Bama definitely has the edge here. But I still like Murray vs McCarron. I think AJ is going to fold under the pressure of the improved UGA defense. No one plays so well for so long like this guy has been doing. I think it&#39;s high time for him to slip up.&lt;br /&gt;
  1007. &lt;br /&gt;
  1008. We&#39;ve played some similar defenses. I&#39;ll lump Missouri (early season version) in with TAMU (late season) and LSU with Florida. That evens the playing ground if you ask me. Pretend for a moment these teams are even and look at the QB stats from an unbiased perspective. &lt;br /&gt;
  1009. &lt;br /&gt;
  1010. These guys are #1 and #2 respectively in QB rating in the entire nation:&lt;br /&gt;
  1011. &lt;br /&gt;
  1012. &lt;u&gt;Aaron Murray&lt;/u&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1013. 213/320 for 3201 yds; 66.6%; 30 TD / 7 INT [4.3]&lt;br /&gt;
  1014. 10.00 YPA  &lt;br /&gt;
  1015. Long of 67; 21 Sacks&lt;br /&gt;
  1016. Rating 177.1&lt;br /&gt;
  1017. &lt;br /&gt;
  1018. &lt;u&gt;AJ McCarron&lt;/u&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1019. 178/265 for 2507 yds; 67.2%; 25 TD / 2 INT [12.5]&lt;br /&gt;
  1020. 9.46 YPA&lt;br /&gt;
  1021. Long of 85; 19 sacks &lt;br /&gt;
  1022. Rating 176.3&lt;br /&gt;
  1023. &lt;br /&gt;
  1024. I&#39;m gonna put my prediction on Georgia, not only because I&#39;m a homer, but because I think it&#39;s truly our time and Murray is due for one. I think Mark Richt (with the obvious help of bobo and Todd DAMN Grantham) and Aaron Murray shock the nation and put up a 10 point win. If not that, I&#39;ll take the low side and say possibly a 2 point Georgia loss. I just don&#39;t see us losing by that much if we do lose at all.</description>

  1029.    <title>Our beloved Dawgs back in the National title race</title>
  1030.    <link></link>
  1031.    <description>Mark Weizer&lt;br /&gt;
  1032. &lt;br /&gt;
  1033. A wild Saturday night moved Georgia that much closer to the BCS national title game before the clock struck midnight.&lt;br /&gt;
  1034. &lt;br /&gt;
  1035. The Bulldogs got the upsets they were hoping from teams above them in the BCS standings.&lt;br /&gt;
  1036. &lt;br /&gt;
  1037. First, BCS No. 1 Kansas State fell hard to Baylor, 52-24, for its first loss of the season.&lt;br /&gt;
  1038. &lt;br /&gt;
  1039. Then, No. 2 Oregon was next to drop from the ranks of the unbeatens, tripped up in overtime by No. 13 Stanford, 17-14.&lt;br /&gt;
  1040. &lt;br /&gt;
  1041. That means No. 5 Georgia seemingly controls its own destiny to get to its first BCS championship game if it beats rival Georgia Tech Saturday in Athens and wins the Dec. 1 SEC championship game. The opponent in Atlanta is expected to be No. 4 Alabama, which still needs to beat Auburn Saturday to secure the SEC West title.&lt;br /&gt;
  1042. &lt;br /&gt;
  1043. Georgia-Alabama would likely serve as an unofficial SEC national semifinal.&lt;br /&gt;
  1044. &lt;br /&gt;
  1045. Notre Dame, the No. 3 BCS team, remained unbeaten with a 38-0 win against Wake Forest Saturday. It plays at Southern California next Saturday night.&lt;br /&gt;
  1046. &lt;br /&gt;
  1047. “Notre Dame is now sitting pretty,” BCS analyst Brad Ewards said on ESPN radio. “If they beat USC next week, they’re going to be in the national championship game. If Alabama beats Auburn next week and Georgia beats Georgia Tech, then the SEC champion, the Alabama-Georgia winner, will be the highest-ranked one loss, and that would be the other team that I would guess you would call controls its destiny at this point. …That’s really all I can say for certain.”&lt;br /&gt;
  1048. &lt;br /&gt;
  1049. The tweets came fast and furious from Georgia players in the moments after the win.&lt;br /&gt;
  1050. &lt;br /&gt;
  1051. “Thank you Baylor, thank you Stanford,” cornerback Sanders Commings tweeted.&lt;br /&gt;
  1052. &lt;br /&gt;
  1053. “Yesssssssssssss!!!!!!,” quarterback Aaron Murray tweeted. “The Murray household just went crazyyyyy!!!!!! #dawgsontop”&lt;br /&gt;
  1054. &lt;br /&gt;
  1055. “I just did have a heart attack,” receiver Chris Conley posted on his feed.&lt;br /&gt;
  1056. &lt;br /&gt;
  1057. Yes, the Bulldogs were fans of Baylor and Stanford for a night.&lt;br /&gt;
  1058. &lt;br /&gt;
  1059. “Oh yeah,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said after a 45-14 win Saturday afternoon against Georgia Southern moved the Bulldogs to 10-1. “Absolutely. We’ll see what happens.”&lt;br /&gt;
  1060. &lt;br /&gt;
  1061. What happened was close to chaos. Athens could be celebrating deep into Sunday.&lt;br /&gt;
  1062. &lt;br /&gt;
  1063. &lt;span class=&#39;small&#39;&gt;&lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;Link&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;</description>

  1068.    <title>Aaron Murray owns his UGA rivals, will it continue vs Georgia Tech?</title>
  1069.    <link></link>
  1070.    <description>I mentioned a few weeks ago prior to the Florida game; Aaron Murray&#39;s record against conference competition as well as Georgia Tech. I&#39;m going to narrow it down now a bit to his record versus his rivals only. This year and last year really stacked his record a bit. &lt;br /&gt;
  1071. &lt;br /&gt;
  1072. &lt;b&gt;Record vs Rivals&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1073. Florida: 2-1&lt;br /&gt;
  1074. South Carolina (a new addition?): 0-3&lt;br /&gt;
  1075. Auburn: 2-1&lt;br /&gt;
  1076. Tennessee: 3-0&lt;br /&gt;
  1077. Georgia Tech: 2-0&lt;br /&gt;
  1078. &lt;br /&gt;
  1079. &lt;b&gt;The Question&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1080. Will this trend continue when we welcome Georgia Tech to Athens?&lt;br /&gt;
  1081. &lt;br /&gt;
  1082. &lt;b&gt;The Reasoning&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1083. I&#39;m not trying to discount Georgia Southern but I have too many friends who are Tech fans. I&#39;m literally the only Dawg fan. I care more about the Tech game than the one against Southern, which we should dominate regardless if they are &quot;used to winning&quot; as Mark Richt so elegantly put it. If we lose to GSU, this post still holds incredible relevance. Maybe I should address GSU first? Who gives a shit, seriously.&lt;br /&gt;
  1084. &lt;br /&gt;
  1085. Tech&#39;s defense is crap. I don&#39;t know if the word &quot;crap&quot; is even worthy of describing their defense. Does defense need quotes (&quot;) around it when we talk about Tech? Did you see or read about the North Carolina game? 60+ to 50+ was the final with a Tech victory if im not mistaken. Even a friend of mine noted the phrase &quot;defense optional&quot;.&lt;br /&gt;
  1086. &lt;br /&gt;
  1087. They fired their defensive coordinator in the middle of the season after 2 and a half years of trying to convert to the 3-4, which in my opinion was a back alley attempt at copying our changes at the same exact time. This can be confirmed by David Hale, whom I asked this same question when he was the UGA beat writer for the Ledger Enquirer. He did however disagree with my homer assumption. I may be the only one who doesn&#39;t blame Al Groh. I&#39;d blame just GT being GT, it&#39;s hard to recruit against us. They need to go after a different angle and make this rivalry more competitive. Close games year in and year out, aside.&lt;br /&gt;
  1088. &lt;br /&gt;
  1089. It leads me to wonder who&#39;s coaching their defense now; PJ? Grad Assistants? Does Aaron Murray give a damn? Doubtful. I&#39;m starting to wonder if he even knows about Tech&#39;s &quot;dominance&quot; before Mark Richt arrived because he doesn&#39;t hype it as much as the Florida game (for obvious reasons I admit).&lt;br /&gt;
  1090. &lt;br /&gt;
  1091. They&#39;ve beat us once in the past 10, 11 years? In PJ&#39;s first year at GT. When Matt Stafford was like &quot;Pssh fuck GT and their new HS offense&quot;, and lost the game.&lt;br /&gt;
  1092. &lt;br /&gt;
  1093. Don&#39;t get me wrong. If you&#39;re a Tech fan and you&#39;re actually reading this you&#39;re probably pretty pissed off by this point. I&#39;ve got mad respect for the Yellow Jackets, more so than anyone else that you&#39;ll probably meet. They usually play us close and make games uncomfortable. They are the underdog and I&#39;m one of the first people to stand up for the underdog. &lt;br /&gt;
  1094. &lt;br /&gt;
  1095. I am still pissed off about the Stafford loss, though. What our record against them would be if not for that loss. That is what burns, even in its complete dominance. Mediocrity is sometimes more acceptable than near perfection, because perfection is the ultimate goal; a small letdown makes the whole thing look bad. &lt;br /&gt;
  1096. &lt;br /&gt;
  1097. &lt;b&gt;The Answer&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1098. Yes. I obviously believe Aaron will continue owning his rivals. Look forward to another epic beat down.&lt;br /&gt;
  1099. &lt;br /&gt;
  1100. Read enough? Disagree? Let me know.</description>

  1115.    <link></link>
  1116.    <description>Listen to &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;this podcast&lt;/a&gt;, you&#39;ll probably need to skip past most of the beginning part where they talk about their recent win over New Mexico State.&lt;br /&gt;
  1117. &lt;br /&gt;
  1118. They talk about how we hate them for no reason, &quot;want to fight just by looking at them&quot;, how they are our biggest rival. We haven&#39;t won anything. &lt;br /&gt;
  1119. &lt;br /&gt;
  1120. If you ask me, Florida is our biggest rival for obvious reasons. I&#39;d definitely put Auburn as a solid #2 though. Your thoughts?</description>

  1125.    <title>A rarely noted and encouraging Murray statistic</title>
  1126.    <link></link>
  1127.    <description>Aaron Murray has some interesting statistics that aren&#39;t brought to the forefront quite enough. Here is Aaron Murray&#39;s record as a starter vs SEC counterparts (with Tech included). Note the bold stats, those are the ones that jump out at me. The italics represent clear domination.&lt;br /&gt;
  1128. &lt;br /&gt;
  1129. &lt;div class=&#39;quote&#39;&gt;vs Mizzou: 1-0&lt;br /&gt;
  1130. &lt;i&gt;vs Vandy: 3-0&lt;br /&gt;
  1131. vs UTk: 3-0&lt;/i&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1132. &lt;b&gt;vs SC: 0-3&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1133. &lt;i&gt;vs UK: 3-0&lt;/i&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1134. vs LSU: 0-1&lt;br /&gt;
  1135. vs Miss St: 1-1&lt;br /&gt;
  1136. vs Ark: 0-1&lt;br /&gt;
  1137. vs AU: 1-1&lt;br /&gt;
  1138. &lt;i&gt;vs Tech: 2-0&lt;/i&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1139. &lt;b&gt;vs UF: 1-1&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1140. &lt;br /&gt;
  1141. Florida is of course the applicable statistic of the week. Aaron Murray is 1-1 vs Florida as a Bulldog starter, with the loss coming as a freshman during our 6-7 campaign a few years back. He won this game the following year and is now a Junior, experienced, and ready to turn the trend.&lt;br /&gt;
  1142. &lt;br /&gt;
  1143. One thing I did take note of was his record vs Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Georgia Tech. Admitting that those teams have been pretty bad as of late, they&#39;ve all played us pretty tough as of late; or did we just play like pure shit?. Aaron&#39;s just simply dominated the ones he was supposed to.&lt;br /&gt;
  1144. &lt;br /&gt;
  1145. And as much as I hate getting into this, having to face it, &lt;u&gt;and&lt;/u&gt; admit it, Aaron Murray is 0 and 3 vs South Carolina as a starter. Keep in mind 2 of those games were in Columbia, including his Freshman game. This past debacle was a blowout and didn&#39;t show any hope of trending in the other direction. Hopefully his Senior campaign tilts this record to 1-3 instead of 0-4.&lt;br /&gt;
  1146. &lt;br /&gt;
  1147. The reason I bring all of this up is because I needed some obvious comfort going into that game in Jacksonville. We looked like shit all year except for the Vanderbilt game and if we ever needed Aaron Murray to step up and play his best, now is the time. The SEC East race hangs in the balance. Is a 13-1 season a possibility? After how gloomy things felt following that South Carolina &quot;game&quot;, it&#39;s amazing to think that record is honestly just within our grasp.</description>

  1152.    <title>Russ officially named Uga IX</title>
  1153.    <link></link>
  1154.    <description>After two terms as the University of Georgia’s interim mascot, “Russ” has been promoted to Uga IX, UGA athletic director Greg McGarity announced today.&lt;br /&gt;
  1155. &lt;br /&gt;
  1156. Ceremonies will be held before the Sept. 15 game against Florida Atlantic to officially crown Russ, the half-brother of Uga VII, as Uga IX.&lt;br /&gt;
  1157. &lt;br /&gt;
  1158. “Like many great and memorable Bulldogs, Russ has earned the opportunity to serve in this capacity,” UGA president Michael Adams said in a statement. “I am confident that he will represent the Bulldog Nation very well and continue the grand tradition of Ugas.”&lt;br /&gt;
  1159. &lt;br /&gt;
  1160. “Russ has endeared himself to the Georgia people over the last three years,” McGarity said. “His dedication to duty when called upon has been exemplary and it’s fitting that he takes his place in the official line of Georgia mascots.”&lt;br /&gt;
  1161. &lt;br /&gt;
  1162. Russ first served as interim mascot following the November 2009 death of Uga VII, filling in for the final two games of that season and the first six games of 2010.  He again served as interim mascot last season following the February 2011 death of Uga VIII.&lt;br /&gt;
  1163. &lt;br /&gt;
  1164. &lt;span class=&#39;small&#39;&gt;&lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;Link&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;</description>

  1172. &lt;br /&gt;
  1173. I for one am kind of pleased by this, it&#39;s nice for my Georgia Bulldogs to be in the same discussion as the west powers Alabama and LSU. My oh my how time&#39;s have changed...</description>

  1180.    <description>This project is somewhat old, I had just forgotten to post it here. &lt;br /&gt;
  1181. &lt;br /&gt;
  1182. &lt;a href=&#39;; title=&#39;Bethany Erin Photography&#39;&gt;Bethany Erin Photography&lt;/a&gt;. This was a pretty small project, its just a basic photo album for my client&#39;s new photography business. The client (Bethany) actually designed the site her self, I just put things together into a real website. She seems to do pretty good work so please be sure to stop by and check it out. &lt;br /&gt;
  1183. &lt;br /&gt;
  1184. It has most things you&#39;d expect out of one of my websites. Information about the business itself, a list of services, contact information, all the basics. It&#39;s using phpHaze 2 though, so it has an extensive admin panel for control and the client seems very happy with it so far. It has a lot of informational pages about the different services they offer in depth, making for a very large depository of information and content.&lt;br /&gt;
  1185. &lt;br /&gt;
  1186. Take some time out of your day to check it out and let me know what you think. She seems to do pretty good work! &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;;/a&gt;</description>

  1258.    <title>Columbus Lions #1 again</title>
  1259.    <link></link>
  1260.    <description>COLUMBUS, GA (May 15, 2011) – In a battle for first place in the SIFL’s Southern Division, the defending champion Columbus Lions (8-1) moved into first place for the first time this season after defeating the previously undefeated Albany Panthers (7-1) on Saturday night 60-56.&lt;br /&gt;
  1261. &lt;br /&gt;
  1262. After falling behind 13-3 thanks in large part to two Levance Richmond interceptions, the Lions offense finally erupted that have been for the past month scoring on seven consecutive drives beginning with an Anthony Merritt two yard touchdown pass from Chris McCoy.  Despite his two early interceptions, McCoy went on to complete 24 of 38 passes for 262 yards and five touchdowns, as the 289 yards of total offense by the Lions is the most surrendered by the Panthers defense all season.&lt;br /&gt;
  1263. &lt;br /&gt;
  1264. Columbus closed out the 1st half taking a touchdown lead into the break after Anthony Merritt scored on a one-yard rushing touchdown taking a 37-30 halftime lead.  To start the second half, the Lions defense stuffed Albany on four consecutive plays and the offense answered on the ensuing drive scoring the first of two quarterback keepers on the night by McCoy putting Columbus up 44-30.&lt;br /&gt;
  1265. &lt;br /&gt;
  1266. Towards the end of the 3rd quarter the Lions would stretch the lead to as much as 16 when receiver Gerald Gales hauled in this third touchdown of the evening coupled up with a Trey Crum uno putting Columbus up 52-36.  Albany would put together some 4th quarter magic scoring on two consecutive drives to get back within two, fullback Derrick Wimbush scored his second rushing touchdown while receiver Clenton Rafe grabbed his lone touchdown following a missed Trey Crum field goal attempt.&lt;br /&gt;
  1267. &lt;br /&gt;
  1268. &lt;img src=&#39;; alt=&#39;&#39; align=&#39;right&#39; width=&#39;156&#39; heign=&#39;245&#39; /&gt;With 4:34 left, the Columbus offense answered right back when McCoy galloped in for his second rushing score of the night directly followed up by another Crum uno pushing the Lions lead back up to 10.  The last three minutes of the game would be a wager of time between the two coaching staffs as both clubs had all three timeouts to spare.&lt;br /&gt;
  1269. &lt;br /&gt;
  1270. After McCoy’s score, Albany put six more points on the board when Lester threw his sixth and final touchdown of the evening hitting Antwone Savage for a nine-yard hook-up.  Down by four, the Panthers elected to go to for two but the conversion failed thanks to a batted ball by linebacker Ryan Babb.&lt;br /&gt;
  1271. &lt;br /&gt;
  1272. Instead of going for the onside kick, Albany elected to make Columbus play the full field and thanks to a block in the back penalty they would start out the possession on their own five-yard line.  But two first downs, one thanks to an unsportsmanlike conduct call on Albany and the final on a fourth-down pass play from McCoy to Gales would seal the deal and give Columbus the 60-56 victory.&lt;br /&gt;
  1273. &lt;br /&gt;
  1274. Saturday’s win marks just the second time a club has walked away from the Albany Civic Center with a victory and even more gives Columbus the overall standings lead by a half game.  Albany must now play their next three games on the road including a rematch with the Lions on June 4th in Columbus.  After a bye week, the Lions will close out the year with their final three games all at home.&lt;br /&gt;
  1275. &lt;br /&gt;
  1276. Columbus returns to action on Thursday May 26th when they play host to the Alabama Hammers.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m. as the first 1,000 fans through the gate will receive a free jersey.  For more information, contact the Lions front office at 706-322-3336 or log on to;br /&gt;

  1283.    <title>Osama Bin Laden II: Man Tries 9/11-style hijacking</title>
  1284.    <link></link>
  1285.    <description>SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – A Yemeni man yelled &quot;God is greatest&quot; in Arabic as he tried to barge into the cockpit of an American Airlines flight over the weekend, a federal prosecutor told a judge in the case on Tuesday.&lt;br /&gt;
  1286. &lt;br /&gt;
  1287. Rageh Al-Murisi, 28, has been charged with interfering with a flight crew for the incident on Sunday aboard American Airlines flight 1561, which was bound for San Francisco from Chicago with 162 people on board.&lt;br /&gt;
  1288. &lt;br /&gt;
  1289. About 20 minutes before the plane landed, Al-Musiri allegedly tried to open the cockpit door, ramming his shoulder into it until a flight attendant and passengers subdued him, according to a criminal complaint issued on Monday.&lt;br /&gt;
  1290. &lt;br /&gt;
  1291. Assistant U.S. attorney Elise Becker, in arguing that Al-Murisi was a threat to public safety, told U.S. Magistrate Judge James Larson that the defendant, who boarded the flight with no luggage, was heard to yell &quot;Allahu Akbar,&quot; or &quot;God is greatest&quot; in Arabic during the incident.&lt;br /&gt;
  1292. &lt;br /&gt;
  1293. Flight records show that the hijackers behind the September 11, 2001 attacks, shouted the same thing, Becker told the court.&lt;br /&gt;
  1294. &lt;br /&gt;
  1295. Becker also said Al-Murisi was carrying only $47, several forms of identification and an Apple computer charger on the flight.&lt;br /&gt;
  1296. &lt;br /&gt;
  1297. Larson ordered Al-Murisi to remain in jail until a hearing on Friday to determine whether he could be freed on bail.&lt;br /&gt;
  1298. &lt;br /&gt;
  1299. Al-Musiri&#39;s actions aboard Flight 1561 came on the same day Reynel Alcaide, a 34-year-old passenger aboard Continental Airlines flight 546 from Houston to Chicago, allegedly tried to open the emergency door in mid-flight.&lt;br /&gt;
  1300. &lt;br /&gt;
  1301. Alcaide, a resident of Burbank, Illinois, was subdued by passengers and crew members and the flight was diverted to St. Louis, where it landed safely.&lt;br /&gt;
  1302. &lt;br /&gt;
  1303. A federal law enforcement official said investigators are looking into possible links between the two incidents, but have not found any connection.&lt;br /&gt;
  1304. &lt;br /&gt;
  1305. The FBI continues to investigate both cases, and the bureau has not found any indication the two men had ties to any militant group.&lt;br /&gt;
  1306. &lt;br /&gt;
  1307. In light of the killing of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden on May 2 in Pakistan by U.S. Navy SEAL commandos, federal officials have warned of possible retaliation by the group.&lt;br /&gt;
  1308. &lt;br /&gt;
  1309. Al-Murisi faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison if convicted of interfering with a flight crew.&lt;br /&gt;

  1318.    <title>A Chinese Double Header: 2 headed baby girl born in China</title>
  1319.    <link></link>
  1320.    <description>BEIJING – A hospital in southwestern China says conjoined twin girls with a single body and two heads have been born at its facility.&lt;br /&gt;
  1321. &lt;br /&gt;
  1322. A staffer surnamed Wang at Suining City Central Hospital in Sichuan province says the girls were born Thursday.&lt;br /&gt;
  1323. &lt;br /&gt;
  1324. Wang said Tuesday the parents, who are farmers, did not want to have the babies at first, fearing they could not afford to keep them alive. She said they transferred the twins to a hospital in the nearby metropolis of Chongqing to be examined by experts.&lt;br /&gt;
  1325. &lt;br /&gt;
  1326. The local Huaxi Metropolis Daily reported the twins weighed 9 pounds (4 kilograms) and measured 20 inches (51 centimeters). They have two spines and two esophaguses and share other organs. Doctors were quoted as saying it would be nearly impossible to separate them.&lt;br /&gt;

  1333.    <title>Will work for bananas: Taliban training gun-toating monkeys</title>
  1334.    <link></link>
  1335.    <description>Quick shot: The Taliban is training monkeys to shoot light machine guns. This is no joke.&lt;br /&gt;
  1336. &lt;br /&gt;
  1337. Last week, a report in the Chinese state-run People&#39;s Daily newspaper alleged that the Afghan Taliban has begun training monkeys in areas along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border as part of the struggle against occupying NATO forces. According to the story, the monkeys are sometimes offered bananas and peanuts as &quot;a series of rewards and punishments to gradually teach them how to&quot; fire Kalashnikovs, light machine guns and trench mortars. (Taiwan&#39;s Apple Daily has come up with a brilliant computerized animation of these recruitment tactics.) The People&#39;s Daily article quotes a number of unnamed, supposedly &quot;inside&quot; sources, including a U.S. official, but NATO spokesmen have since dismissed any knowledge of these so-called &quot;monkey terrorists.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;

  1353.    <title>UGA better with a returning QB</title>
  1354.    <link></link>
  1355.    <description>It goes without saying having the QB coming back is a huge plus for any team. UGA seems to benefit greatly whenever it has a returning QB. Head Coach Mark Richt certainly has to be enthusiastic about what could be a breakout year for Soph QB Aaron Murray and the positive impact it has on the season’s bottom line in wins.&lt;br /&gt;
  1356. &lt;br /&gt;
  1357. CMR with Returning QB:&lt;br /&gt;

  1384.    <title>2011 NFL Draft: UGA has most SEC picks</title>
  1385.    <link></link>
  1386.    <description>Georgia tied with LSU for the most NFL draft picks in the SEC, with 6. Georgia had 4 offensive players go: A.J., Boling, Durham, and Chapas. Dent and Houston were the 2 defensive players selected. &lt;br /&gt;
  1387. &lt;br /&gt;
  1388. At least A.J. will have a teammate to help him through the trying times in Cincinnati. Clint and A.J. should both start immediately. It&#39;s got to sting A.J. knowing the Falcons tried to trade up and get him. But the Bengals weren&#39;t interested. Oh well, maybe the $38M of guaranteed money will make the sting go away.&lt;br /&gt;
  1389. &lt;br /&gt;
  1390. Akeem Dent landed with the Falcons and that appears to be a good fit. Dent is tough against the run, so he has a shot to take over that SLB spot, when Peterson exits. Until then, he&#39;ll be earning his check on special teams cover units. &lt;br /&gt;
  1391. &lt;br /&gt;
  1392. Kris Durham landed in Seattle, as a 4th round pick. Looks like he can secure their 4th WR spot, with Mike Williams, Golden Tate and Ben Obomanu settled in as the top 3. &lt;br /&gt;
  1393. Shaun Chapas will battle Chris Gronkowski for the Cowboys FB job. Gronkowski is a 2-year pro out of Arizona. &lt;br /&gt;
  1394. &lt;br /&gt;
  1395. Houston really hurt himself with the positive test prior to draft day. Not smart. But hopefully, Justin will find a home in KC. Tyson jackson (x-LSU star) and Tamba Hali are the starters at DE. Vrabel is the starter at OLB.&lt;br /&gt;
  1396. &lt;br /&gt;
  1397. Speaking of defense, reading Marc Weiszer&#39;s blog...he hit on the fact that the &#39;Dogs have not had a defensive player taken in Round 1, since Pollack &amp; Thomas Davis both went #1 back in 2005. That&#39;s 6 drafts, without a big-time defender. No wonder the &#39;Dogs have struggled on defense.&lt;br /&gt;
  1398. &lt;br /&gt;

  1405.    <title>Synthetic drugs send thousands to ER</title>
  1406.    <link></link>
  1407.    <description>INDIANOLA, Iowa – Synthetic substances that mimic marijuana, cocaine and other illegal drugs are making users across the nation seriously ill, causing seizures and hallucinations and even killing some people.&lt;br /&gt;
  1408. &lt;br /&gt;
  1409. The products are often packaged as incense or bath salts and can be obtained for as little as $10 at many head shops. As more people experiment with them, the results are becoming evident at hospitals: a sharp spike in the number of users who show up with problems ranging from labored breathing and rapid heartbeats to extreme paranoia and delusions. The symptoms can persist for days.&lt;br /&gt;
  1410. &lt;br /&gt;
  1411. At the request of The Associated Press, the American Association of Poison Control Centers analyzed nationwide figures on calls related to synthetic drugs. The findings showed an alarming increase in the number of people seeking medical attention.&lt;br /&gt;
  1412. &lt;br /&gt;
  1413. At least 2,700 people have fallen ill since January, compared with fewer than 3,200 cases in all of 2010. At that pace, medical emergencies related to synthetic drugs could go up nearly fivefold by the end of the year.&lt;br /&gt;
  1414. &lt;br /&gt;
  1415. &quot;Many of the users describe extreme paranoia,&quot; said Dr. Mark Ryan, director of the Louisiana Poison Center. &quot;The recurring theme is monsters, demons and aliens. A lot of them had suicidal thoughts.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1416. &lt;br /&gt;
  1417. The chemicals are suspected in at least nine U.S. deaths since last year, including that of Mike Rozga&#39;s 18-year-old son, David, an athlete and band standout from Indianola.&lt;br /&gt;
  1418. &lt;br /&gt;
  1419. The young man got high last June on a marijuana look-alike product called &quot;K2&quot; and complained to a friend &quot;that he felt like he was in hell,&quot; his father said.&lt;br /&gt;
  1420. &lt;br /&gt;
  1421. Though the teen had never suffered from depression, he went home, found a shotgun and killed himself.&lt;br /&gt;
  1422. &lt;br /&gt;
  1423. &quot;These kids weren&#39;t looking for anything bad to happen,&quot; Mike Rozga said. &quot;The truth is they didn&#39;t know what they had gotten themselves into.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1424. &lt;br /&gt;
  1425. The recent surge in activity has not gone unnoticed by authorities. The Drug Enforcement Administration recently used emergency powers to outlaw five chemicals found in synthetic pot, placing them in the same category as heroin and cocaine.&lt;br /&gt;
  1426. &lt;br /&gt;
  1427. But manufacturers are quick to adapt, often cranking out new formulas that are only a single molecule apart from the illegal ones.&lt;br /&gt;
  1428. &lt;br /&gt;
  1429. Recreational drugs created in the laboratory have been around at least since the middle of the 20th century, when LSD was first studied. But these latest examples emerged only a few years ago, starting in Europe.&lt;br /&gt;
  1430. &lt;br /&gt;
  1431. The products were typically made in China, India and other Asian nations and soon arrived in Britain and Germany, according to DEA spokesman Rusty Payne.&lt;br /&gt;
  1432. &lt;br /&gt;
  1433. In the United States, fake marijuana was last year&#39;s big seller, marketed under brands such as &quot;K2&quot; or &quot;Spice.&quot; This year, the trend is &quot;bath salts&quot; with names like &quot;Purple Wave&quot; and &quot;Bliss.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1434. &lt;br /&gt;
  1435. Besides being cheap and easily obtained, they do not show up in common drug tests.&lt;br /&gt;
  1436. &lt;br /&gt;
  1437. Synthetic marijuana typically involves dried plant material sprayed with one of several chemical compounds, most of which were created by a Clemson University scientist for research purposes in the 1990s. The compounds were never tested on humans.&lt;br /&gt;
  1438. &lt;br /&gt;
  1439. It&#39;s packaged to look like pot, and users typically smoke it, but experts say the high is more comparable to cocaine or LSD.&lt;br /&gt;
  1440. &lt;br /&gt;
  1441. The bath salts are not water-softening products at all but crystalized chemicals that are snorted, swallowed or smoked. They contain two powerful stimulants: methylenedioxypyrovalerone (or MDPV) and mephedrone, which mimic cocaine, LSD and methamphetamine.&lt;br /&gt;
  1442. &lt;br /&gt;
  1443. So far in 2011, poison control centers have received nearly 1,300 calls about synthetic pot, compared with 2,874 calls for all of last year, according to the poison control center data.&lt;br /&gt;
  1444. &lt;br /&gt;
  1445. Poison calls for bath salts rose at an even greater rate. The centers took 301 calls in all of 2010, but had more than 1,400 for the first three months of 2011. Most of the calls came from doctors and nurses reporting patients in emergency rooms.&lt;br /&gt;
  1446. &lt;br /&gt;
  1447. &quot;The problem is really exploding here,&quot; said Dr. Elizabeth Scharman, director of the West Virginia Poison Center. Her state had three cases of bath-salt poisoning in December.&lt;br /&gt;
  1448. &lt;br /&gt;
  1449. &quot;We&#39;ve had 131 cases since Jan. 1,&quot; and one-third of those were within the past two weeks, she said late last month. A law banning bath salts and synthetic marijuana was signed Tuesday by acting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin.&lt;br /&gt;
  1450. &lt;br /&gt;
  1451. Physicians generally treat the overdoses with anti-anxiety medication such as Valium and Xanax, which ease the frenetic, drug-fueled activity in the brain and body.&lt;br /&gt;
  1452. &lt;br /&gt;
  1453. &quot;They cut back on the hallucinations, slow the heart rate, lower the blood pressure. It can take large doses. It can take repeated doses,&quot; Scharman said.&lt;br /&gt;
  1454. &lt;br /&gt;
  1455. In some patients, symptoms can last for days.&lt;br /&gt;
  1456. &lt;br /&gt;
  1457. &quot;One described it as like being on cocaine, but 10 times worse,&quot; said Anna Rouse Dulaney of the Carolinas Poison Center in Charlotte, N.C.&lt;br /&gt;
  1458. &lt;br /&gt;
  1459. DEA agent Gary Boggs said users assume that the products are safe because they are available in stores, even though they are typically labeled &quot;not for human consumption.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1460. &lt;br /&gt;
  1461. &quot;These products are in an unregulated, unlicensed industry,&quot; Boggs said. &quot;No one knows the strength of the ingredients. You don&#39;t know what you&#39;re taking.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1462. &lt;br /&gt;
  1463. In addition to the DEA&#39;s recently adopted ban, a federal law allows for prosecution of &quot;analogue&quot; drugs that mimic the effects of illegal substances.&lt;br /&gt;
  1464. &lt;br /&gt;
  1465. But authorities acknowledge the challenge of stopping the drugs&#39; spread. DEA experts are evaluating as many as 50 new synthetics.&lt;br /&gt;
  1466. &lt;br /&gt;
  1467. &quot;The possibilities are endless,&quot; Boggs said. &quot;There&#39;s probably hundreds of formulations out there.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1468. &lt;br /&gt;
  1469. At least 20 states have banned chemicals found in fake marijuana, according to a report from the National Conference of State Legislatures compiled for the AP. Most others have legislation pending.&lt;br /&gt;
  1470. &lt;br /&gt;
  1471. At least nine states have banned substances found in bath salts, and 25 have laws in the works.&lt;br /&gt;
  1472. &lt;br /&gt;
  1473. Lawmakers know they&#39;re fighting an uphill battle.&lt;br /&gt;
  1474. &lt;br /&gt;
  1475. &quot;These chemists are pretty sophisticated and creative and are going to stay one step ahead of us, I&#39;m afraid,&quot; said Kentucky state Rep. John Tilley, a Democrat who sponsored his state&#39;s ban on drug-infused bath salts.&lt;br /&gt;
  1476. &lt;br /&gt;
  1477. Some head shop owners see all the alarm as an overreaction.&lt;br /&gt;
  1478. &lt;br /&gt;
  1479. In Des Moines, Iowa, near Drake University, the Day Dreams shop has found the synthetic marijuana &quot;Spice&quot; to be a proven money-maker. Along with incense, hippie clothing and drug paraphernalia, the store has sold thousands of packets of the crumbly, brownish-green leaves. Many of the packages are displayed behind the counter as a safeguard against shoplifting.&lt;br /&gt;
  1480. &lt;br /&gt;
  1481. Contrary to DEA claims that the product is most popular among teens and college-age customers, co-owner Kathy Fiedler said two-thirds of her buyers are middle-aged.&lt;br /&gt;
  1482. &lt;br /&gt;
  1483. &quot;I even have grandmothers coming in,&quot; said Fiedler, 56.&lt;br /&gt;
  1484. &lt;br /&gt;
  1485. If Iowa lawmakers adopt a ban, she said, they risk opening the door to shady backroom chemists crafting far more dangerous things.&lt;br /&gt;
  1486. &lt;br /&gt;
  1487. Reports of misuse are widespread.&lt;br /&gt;
  1488. &lt;br /&gt;
  1489. In Kentucky, authorities say a young woman driving on a highway after using bath salts became convinced her 2-year-old was a demon. She allegedly stopped the car and dropped the child on his head. He survived and was taken from his mother&#39;s custody.&lt;br /&gt;
  1490. &lt;br /&gt;
  1491. A Hawaii man pleaded guilty to attacking his girlfriend and trying to throw her off an 11th-floor balcony while high on &quot;Spice.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1492. &lt;br /&gt;
  1493. In January, a Fulton, Miss., man who hallucinated after taking bath salts used a hunting knife to slit his face and stomach.&lt;br /&gt;
  1494. &lt;br /&gt;
  1495. And in March, a 19-year-old man named Trevor Robinson-Davis died in suburban Minneapolis after overdosing at a party on a synthetic drug called 2C-E, a &quot;cousin&quot; to a banned rave-party drug. Ten others at the party became ill.&lt;br /&gt;
  1496. &lt;br /&gt;
  1497. Back in Indianola, David Rozga&#39;s parents said their son had been active in his church and was preparing to start college in the fall. He loved the Green Bay Packers so much he had Brett Favre&#39;s No. 4 tattooed on his shoulder.&lt;br /&gt;
  1498. &lt;br /&gt;
  1499. &quot;We said at the time, `If this was the worst thing he ever did, we did a pretty good job.&#39; Unfortunately, it wasn&#39;t,&quot; Mike Rozga said.&lt;br /&gt;
  1500. &lt;br /&gt;
  1501. Sen. Charles Grassley, an Iowa Republican, introduced a measure bearing David Rozga&#39;s name that would permanently ban five chemicals used in synthetic marijuana products.&lt;br /&gt;
  1502. &lt;br /&gt;
  1503. Jan Rozga hopes the law will be her son&#39;s legacy.&lt;br /&gt;
  1504. &lt;br /&gt;
  1505. &quot;I did not stop being David&#39;s mother when he died,&quot; she said. &quot;I still feel very protective over him, what happened to him, and I want to right that wrong for him.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;

  1531.    <title>Medical marijuana growers accused of trafficking</title>
  1532.    <link></link>
  1533.    <description>HELENA, Mont (Reuters) – A medical marijuana law in the state of Montana is being used for large-scale drug trafficking, federal prosecutors said, days after the U.S. government raided facilities across the state.&lt;br /&gt;
  1534. &lt;br /&gt;
  1535. The raids on Monday capped an 18-month investigation of marijuana trafficking statewide, the U.S. Attorney for Montana, Michael Cotter, said in a statement.&lt;br /&gt;
  1536. &lt;br /&gt;
  1537. Seizures also were carried out at financial institutions in three Montana cities under civil warrants seeking up to $4 million in connection with the alleged drug trade, he said.&lt;br /&gt;
  1538. &lt;br /&gt;
  1539. The sweep prompted an outcry from medical marijuana advocates, who accused the government of cracking down on growers and distributors who were operating legally under the state&#39;s seven-year-old medical marijuana law.&lt;br /&gt;
  1540. &lt;br /&gt;
  1541. But Cotter said in his statement that the raids were conducted &quot;where there is probable cause that the premises were involved in illegal and large-scale trafficking of marijuana.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1542. &lt;br /&gt;
  1543. &quot;When criminal networks violate federal laws, those involved will be prosecuted,&quot; he said.&lt;br /&gt;
  1544. &lt;br /&gt;
  1545. Although cannabis is still considered an illegal narcotic under federal law, 15 states and the District of Columbia have statutes legalizing pot for medical use, according to the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.&lt;br /&gt;
  1546. &lt;br /&gt;
  1547. In a shift from the Bush administration&#39;s position, the administration of President Barack Obama said in October 2009 it would no longer prosecute patients who use medical marijuana, or dispensaries that distribute it, in states where marijuana has been approved for such purposes.&lt;br /&gt;
  1548. &lt;br /&gt;
  1549. A Justice Department spokeswoman in Washington, Tracy Schmaler, denied the Montana raids were at odds with the Obama administration&#39;s policy pronouncement.&lt;br /&gt;
  1550. &lt;br /&gt;
  1551. &quot;We are not going to look the other way while significant drug trafficking organizations try and shield their illegal efforts ... through the pretense that they are medical dispensaries,&quot; she said on Tuesday.&lt;br /&gt;
  1552. &lt;br /&gt;
  1553. Federal agents seized some 1,700 pot plants at one facility, Montana Cannabis, said co-owner Chris Williams. He said the plants were the source of legitimate medicine for nearly 300 patients.&lt;br /&gt;
  1554. &lt;br /&gt;
  1555. Montana law allows up to six marijuana plants to be grown for each patient.&lt;br /&gt;
  1556. &lt;br /&gt;
  1557. Former Montana Cannabis owner Tom Daubert, who helped write the state&#39;s medical marijuana statute, condemned the raids as heavy-handed. &quot;I have every reason to believe the locations that were targeted were striving to be legal under state law.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;

  1573.    <title>Bulldogs get NCAA tournament berth</title>
  1574.    <link></link>
  1575.    <description>ATHENS -- After 48 hours of nervous helplessness, the players and coaches of the Georgia men’s basketball team met uneasily in their locker room Sunday night. They settled in for the NCAA tournament selection show, having spent two days hearing they might be out or might be in, but if they were in it wouldn’t be by much.&lt;br /&gt;
  1576. &lt;br /&gt;
  1577. “Everybody was tense, sitting in our locker room, biting fingers, looking at each other like, ‘Oh man, we don’t know what’s gonna happen,’ ” junior forward Trey Thompkins said.&lt;br /&gt;
  1578. &lt;br /&gt;
  1579. The tension turned to surprised joy a short time into the show as Georgia was revealed to not only be in the NCAA tournament for the first time in three years, but a No. 10 seed, higher than predicted by most experts.&lt;br /&gt;
  1580. &lt;br /&gt;
  1581. “The way we were jumping around, it seemed like we won the national championship,” guard Travis Leslie said.&lt;br /&gt;
  1582. &lt;br /&gt;
  1583. It would take six wins for the Bulldogs to actually do that. But that’s better than seven, which is what would’ve been required had they been one of the NCAA’s final four at-large selections.&lt;br /&gt;
  1584. &lt;br /&gt;
  1585. Instead Georgia (21-11) got in rather easily, as the committee apparently heavily weighed RPI rank (Georgia was 47 on Sunday and strength of schedule (Georgia’s was 40th).&lt;br /&gt;
  1586. &lt;br /&gt;
  1587. Gene Smith, the selection committee chairman, mentioned road record several times on a conference call. So Georgia’s 9-7 record away from home, including 7-4 when taking away neutral sites, helped its case.&lt;br /&gt;
  1588. &lt;br /&gt;
  1589. The Bulldogs’ destination will be Charlotte, N.C., where they will meet Washington, the Pac-10 tournament champion, on Friday at a time to be announced Monday. The winner most likely will face No. 2 seed North Carolina.&lt;br /&gt;
  1590. &lt;br /&gt;
  1591. Georgia has never played Washington in men’s basketball. But the Bulldogs’ head coach knows the school well.&lt;br /&gt;
  1592. &lt;br /&gt;
  1593. Mark Fox met his wife, Cindy, at Washington. Cindy Fox is a Washington graduate who grew up in Yakima. She worked at the school for a decade as the athletics department’s director of marketing and promotion.&lt;br /&gt;
  1594. &lt;br /&gt;
  1595. And Fox’s closest friend outside of basketball is the Huskies’ volleyball coach. But the second-year Georgia head coach preferred the focus be on his players’ reaction after the team earned the program’s first at-large berth in nine years.&lt;br /&gt;
  1596. &lt;br /&gt;
  1597. “I don’t think I’ve been that happy in a long time,” Thompkins said. “Just seeing our whole team jump around and throw stuff in the locker room. Hug each other as much as we did. That was a blessing, just to see our name that we’re in the tournament.”&lt;br /&gt;
  1598. &lt;br /&gt;
  1599. The reaction was partly a result of the two days of uncertainty. Many experts had the Bulldogs missing the field, especially after Friday’s overtime loss to Alabama, itself a bubble team that didn’t make it.&lt;br /&gt;
  1600. &lt;br /&gt;
  1601. At a minimum, it seemed the Bulldogs would be relegated to one of the four play-in games, to be held Tuesday and Wednesday in Dayton, Ohio. The coaches spent Saturday studying about 15 teams in case they had to play one of them Tuesday.&lt;br /&gt;
  1602. &lt;br /&gt;
  1603. “Nerve-wracking,” Thompkins said, describing the 48 hours after the loss to Alabama. “I was at home with my family (Saturday), and they were just asking me if we would be in, and I really had no answer for them. Lost a little sleep about it, but I can sleep tonight.”&lt;br /&gt;
  1604. &lt;br /&gt;
  1605. Guard Gerald Robinson said it was “the longest two days of my life.”&lt;br /&gt;
  1606. &lt;br /&gt;
  1607. Forward Connor Nolte -- whom Fox had appointed as the team “bracketologist” several weeks ago -- was getting text messages from teammates asking whether the team was in or out.&lt;br /&gt;
  1608. &lt;br /&gt;
  1609. “I couldn’t give them a definite answer, but I told them I felt pretty good,” Nolte said. “I thought there was about an 85 percent chance, 90 percent chance we’d be in. … I had us being one of the last six or seven to be in, and we ended up being a little above that.”&lt;br /&gt;
  1610. &lt;br /&gt;
  1611. Washington (23-10) won the Pac-10 championship against Arizona on a last-second shot in overtime. It’s led by 5-foot-9 guard Isaiah Thomas, an All-Pac 10 player.&lt;br /&gt;
  1612. &lt;br /&gt;
  1613. “I’ve been seeing him play for a while,” Leslie said. “He’s a great player. And I know they’ve got a great team. So I’m just looking forward to Friday.”&lt;br /&gt;
  1614. &lt;br /&gt;

  1620.    <title>The Lost City of Atlantis -- Found?</title>
  1621.    <link></link>
  1622.    <description>NORTHAMPTON, Mass (Reuters) – A U.S.-led research team may have finally located the lost city of Atlantis, the legendary metropolis believed swamped by a tsunami thousands of years ago in mud flats in southern Spain.&lt;br /&gt;
  1623. &lt;br /&gt;
  1624. &quot;This is the power of tsunamis,&quot; head researcher Richard Freund told Reuters.&lt;br /&gt;
  1625. &lt;br /&gt;
  1626. &quot;It is just so hard to understand that it can wipe out 60 miles inland, and that&#39;s pretty much what we&#39;re talking about,&quot; said Freund, a University of Hartford, Connecticut, professor who lead an international team searching for the true site of Atlantis.&lt;br /&gt;
  1627. &lt;br /&gt;
  1628. To solve the age-old mystery, the team used a satellite photo of a suspected submerged city to find the site just north of Cadiz, Spain. There, buried in the vast marshlands of the Dona Ana Park, they believe that they pinpointed the ancient, multi-ringed dominion known as Atlantis.&lt;br /&gt;
  1629. &lt;br /&gt;
  1630. The team of archeologists and geologists in 2009 and 2010 used a combination of deep-ground radar, digital mapping, and underwater technology to survey the site.&lt;br /&gt;
  1631. &lt;br /&gt;
  1632. Freund&#39;s discovery in central Spain of a strange series of &quot;memorial cities,&quot; built in Atlantis&#39; image by its refugees after the city&#39;s likely destruction by a tsunami, gave researchers added proof and confidence, he said.&lt;br /&gt;
  1633. &lt;br /&gt;
  1634. Atlantis residents who did not perish in the tsunami fled inland and built new cities there, he added.&lt;br /&gt;
  1635. &lt;br /&gt;
  1636. The team&#39;s findings will be unveiled on Sunday in &quot;Finding Atlantis,&quot; a new National Geographic Channel special.&lt;br /&gt;
  1637. &lt;br /&gt;
  1638. While it is hard to know with certainty that the site in Spain in Atlantis, Freund said the &quot;twist&quot; of finding the memorial cities makes him confident Atlantis was buried in the mud flats on Spain&#39;s southern coast.&lt;br /&gt;
  1639. &lt;br /&gt;
  1640. &quot;We found something that no one else has ever seen before, which gives it a layer of credibility, especially for archeology, that makes a lot more sense,&quot; Freund said.&lt;br /&gt;
  1641. &lt;br /&gt;
  1642. Greek philosopher Plato wrote about Atlantis some 2,600 years ago, describing it as &quot;an island situated in front of the straits which are by you called the Pillars of Hercules,&quot; as the Straits of Gibraltar were known in antiquity. Using Plato&#39;s detailed account of Atlantis as a map, searches have focused on the Mediterranean and Atlantic as the best possible sites for the city.&lt;br /&gt;
  1643. &lt;br /&gt;
  1644. Tsunamis in the region have been documented for centuries, Freund says. One of the largest was a reported 10-story tidal wave that slammed Lisbon in November, 1755.&lt;br /&gt;
  1645. &lt;br /&gt;
  1646. Debate about whether Atlantis truly existed has lasted for thousands of years. Plato&#39;s &quot;dialogues&quot; from around 360 B.C. are the only known historical sources of information about the iconic city. Plato said the island he called Atlantis &quot;in a single day and night... disappeared into the depths of the sea.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1647. &lt;br /&gt;
  1648. Experts plan further excavations are planned at the site where they believe Atlantis is located and at the mysterious &quot;cities&quot; in central Spain 150 miles away to more closely study geological formations and to date artifacts.&lt;br /&gt;

  1656.    <title>13 programs have won 700 games, UGA on top</title>
  1657.    <link></link>
  1658.    <description>The information in this post came from a DawgVent post by way of the blog &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;&lt;i&gt;Silver Britches&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  1659. &lt;br /&gt;
  1660. I know that you need no further convincing of the superiority of SEC football but you might need to enlighten some non-believers (if they exist)&lt;br /&gt;
  1661. &lt;br /&gt;
  1662. For today, I thought I&#39;d show the 13 members of the 700-win club and what their numbers look like against the Top 30 programs on the All-Time Wins List.&lt;br /&gt;
  1663. &lt;br /&gt;
  1664. * I also added 4 teams this time around. There are four teams that have played fewer than 1000 games, but have a winning % of .620 or greater. That would be top 20 all-time on the winning % list, but they haven&#39;t played enough games to be in the Top 30 All-Time Wins list. They are: Miami, Florida St, S. Florida, and Boise St. So I included them in these numbers.&lt;br /&gt;
  1665. &lt;br /&gt;
  1666. &lt;br /&gt;
  1667. MOST GAMES VS TOP 30 PROGRAMS&lt;br /&gt;
  1668. &lt;br /&gt;
  1669. &lt;b class=&#39;alt&#39;&gt;1. 598 - Georgia&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1670. 2. 597 - Auburn&lt;br /&gt;
  1671. 3. 528 - Alabama&lt;br /&gt;
  1672. 4. 445 - LSU&lt;br /&gt;
  1673. 5. 437 - Texas&lt;br /&gt;
  1674. 6. 417 - Tennessee&lt;br /&gt;
  1675. 7. 392 - Notre Dame&lt;br /&gt;
  1676. 8. 382 - Penn State&lt;br /&gt;
  1677. 9. 381 - Oklahoma&lt;br /&gt;
  1678. 10. 366 - Nebraska&lt;br /&gt;
  1679. 11. 361 - USC&lt;br /&gt;
  1680. 12. 326 - Michigan&lt;br /&gt;
  1681. 13. 304 - Ohio State&lt;br /&gt;
  1682. &lt;br /&gt;
  1683. MOST WINS VS TOP 30 PROGRAMS&lt;br /&gt;
  1684. &lt;br /&gt;
  1685. 1. 305 - Auburn&lt;br /&gt;
  1686. 2. 304 - Alabama&lt;br /&gt;
  1687. &lt;b class=&#39;alt&#39;&gt;2. 304 - Georgia&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1688. 4. 266 - Texas&lt;br /&gt;
  1689. 5. 243 - Notre Dame&lt;br /&gt;
  1690. 6. 223 - Penn State&lt;br /&gt;
  1691. 7. 213 - Tennessee&lt;br /&gt;
  1692. 8. 211 - USC&lt;br /&gt;
  1693. 9. 207 - LSU&lt;br /&gt;
  1694. 10. 206 - Oklahoma&lt;br /&gt;
  1695. 11. 204 - Michigan&lt;br /&gt;
  1696. 12. 180 - Nebraska&lt;br /&gt;
  1697. 13. 173 - Ohio State&lt;br /&gt;
  1698. &lt;br /&gt;
  1699. This is a good one.&lt;br /&gt;
  1700. &lt;br /&gt;
  1701. This is a list of the % of a programs total games played against Top 30 programs.&lt;br /&gt;
  1702. &lt;br /&gt;
  1703. For example, Oklahoma has played 1169 games, 381 of which were against Top 30 programs. That&#39;s 32.6%.&lt;br /&gt;
  1704. &lt;br /&gt;
  1705. 1. 51.6% - Auburn&lt;br /&gt;
  1706. &lt;b class=&#39;alt&#39;&gt;2. 50.3% - Georgia&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1707. 3. 45.4% - Alabama&lt;br /&gt;
  1708. 4. 38.5% - LSU&lt;br /&gt;
  1709. 5. 36.0 % - Texas&lt;br /&gt;
  1710. 6. 35.2% - Tennessee&lt;br /&gt;
  1711. 7. 33.2% - Notre Dame&lt;br /&gt;
  1712. 8. 32.6% - Oklahoma&lt;br /&gt;
  1713. 9. 31.8% - USC&lt;br /&gt;
  1714. 10. 31.3% - Penn State&lt;br /&gt;
  1715. 11. 29.7% - Nebraska&lt;br /&gt;
  1716. 12. 26.5% - Michigan&lt;br /&gt;
  1717. 13. 25.5% - Ohio State&lt;br /&gt;
  1718. &lt;br /&gt;
  1719. This list is even better. It&#39;s a list of the % of a programs&#39; wins that have come against Top 30 programs.&lt;br /&gt;
  1720. &lt;br /&gt;
  1721. For example, Oklahoma has 809 wins, 206 have come against Top 30 programs. That&#39;s 25.5%.&lt;br /&gt;
  1722. &lt;br /&gt;
  1723. 1. 43.0% - Auburn&lt;br /&gt;
  1724. &lt;b class=&#39;alt&#39;&gt;2. 41.2% - Georgia&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1725. 3. 37.9% - Alabama&lt;br /&gt;
  1726. 4. 31.3% - Texas&lt;br /&gt;
  1727. 5. 28.8% - Notre Dame&lt;br /&gt;
  1728. 6. 28.7% - LSU&lt;br /&gt;
  1729. 7. 27.4% - USC&lt;br /&gt;
  1730. 8. 27.2% - Penn State&lt;br /&gt;
  1731. 9. 27.0% - Tennessee&lt;br /&gt;
  1732. 10. 25.5% Oklahoma&lt;br /&gt;
  1733. 11. 23.1% - Michigan&lt;br /&gt;
  1734. 12. 21.3% - Nebraska&lt;br /&gt;

  1740.    <title>UGA back in the &#39;way too early&#39; preseason top 25</title>
  1741.    <link></link>
  1742.    <description>So, it looks like Mark Schlabach has the Georgia Bulldogs in his &#39;way too early&#39; preseason top 25 again as he did last year. Lets hope the 2011 season plays out better than the 2010 season.&lt;br /&gt;
  1743. &lt;br /&gt;
  1744. Here is his post on ESPN: &lt;br /&gt;
  1745. &lt;br /&gt;
  1746. &lt;b&gt;18. Georgia Bulldogs&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1747. The Bulldogs are coming off a 6-7 season, and coach Mark Richt seemed to be losing all momentum before signing one of the country&#39;s best recruiting classes. UGA addressed one of its biggest recruiting needs by signing No. 1 running back prospect Isaiah Crowell of Columbus, Ga., who will be given a chance to start right away. Quarterback Aaron Murray ranked No. 14 nationally in pass efficiency in his first season as a starter and should only get better. UGA returns four starters on the offensive line, but receiver A.J. Green will be sorely missed. UGA&#39;s defense struggled in its first season in a 3-4 scheme and it won&#39;t help that star linebacker Justin Houston entered the NFL draft as a junior. The Bulldogs remain in the hunt for juco defensive tackle Jonathan Jenkins, who will sign with either UGA or Florida on Saturday and could be the key to coordinator Todd Grantham&#39;s 3-4 scheme. Georgia plays only four true road games (at Ole Miss, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Georgia Tech) and plays Boise State in Atlanta and Florida in Jacksonville, Fla.</description>

  1752.    <title>NCAA Death Penalty for Auburn?</title>
  1753.    <link></link>
  1754.    <description>The following was posted to a UGA recruiting board. Apparently, it was copied from an Alabama board&lt;br /&gt;
  1755. &lt;br /&gt;
  1756. by Gilbert_Grape » Fri Nov 19, 2010 1:28 am&lt;br /&gt;
  1757. &lt;br /&gt;
  1758. Take this for what it is worth. I&#39;m just an old guy who knows little and remembers even less, but I&#39;ve been around enough times to know what to believe and what not to believe.&lt;br /&gt;
  1759. &lt;br /&gt;
  1760. I&#39;ve been reading this forum off and on, but have never posted here. I don&#39;t plan on posting here again, but I do want to make my one post count.&lt;br /&gt;
  1761. &lt;br /&gt;
  1762. To begin, those of you who are jumping ship because there is no damning evidence thus far, man up and be patient. Rome wasn&#39;t built in a day, and the barn won&#39;t burn faster just because you want it to. Trust me, though- it will burn.&lt;br /&gt;
  1763. &lt;br /&gt;
  1764. My credentials are this: I know people who are in position to know things because I used to be one of those &quot;in the know&quot;. I was involved in the initial investigation at SMU, not as a University official but as an NCAA pencil pusher. Right now, I have one son teaching at UAT and another in the athletic department at Auburn (I also have a cousin who was once employed by Auburn, but he has since cut ties with them after a falling out a few years ago). Finally, my neighbor and closest friend started as a CART agent with the FBI and does work with AccessData&#39;s FTK on the side (he&#39;s the guy who proves you visited those websites you lied to your wife about). I say all of that to say this: I consider myself well-connected. That does not mean, however, that I will defend to the death my sources. Anyone offering &quot;insider&quot; information, unless they are actively involved, is only doing so out of good faith to their sources and a belief that they can contribute in some way. This is where I stand.&lt;br /&gt;
  1765. &lt;br /&gt;
  1766. &lt;center&gt;&lt;img src=&#39;images/articles/aubiefrys.gif&#39; alt=&#39;aubiefrys&#39; /&gt;&lt;/center&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1767. &lt;br /&gt;
  1768. (1)Cam Newton: Unless he stands at a podium and flashes cash, he&#39;s playing against Bama. However, his ineligibility is guaranteed. Auburn knows this, the SEC knows this, the NCAA knows this, and Cam (should) know this. This is the least of Auburn&#39;s worries because,&lt;br /&gt;
  1769. (2) Auburn is going down. Cam is essentially a diversion. Let me repeat myself again: CAM Is ESSENTIALLY A DIVERSION. There was a slush fund, and this fund was accessed by Auburn players through ATM cards. The paper trail will show this. The FBI is offering unbelievable deals for those who talk. Unfortunately, those in the know have to keep hush-hush while people are talking because this is a federal investigation, which is why&lt;br /&gt;
  1770. (3) This has taken so long. It is a process, people. The NCAA and others are not just sitting on their thumbs. It&#39;s like being in line at McDonald&#39;s- no matter how fast you want to move, you have to wait on the folks in front of you. Auburn knows this, and the mood in the Barn offices is gloomy at best. There is concern over heavy, heavy penalties, including loss of SACS and the NCAA Death Penalty. However,&lt;br /&gt;
  1771. (4) Auburn will not be given the Death Penalty, and it&#39;s extremely unlikely that it will lose SACS. The Alabama legislature and governor are willing to do whatever it takes to keep Auburn open and funded. The last time Auburn was in trouble with SACS, the governor begged for them to be spared. That won&#39;t work this time, but that is because the Alabama legislature is going to&lt;br /&gt;
  1772. (5) Clean house at Auburn. The BOT will be made up of congressman (if certain folks have their way), and no one other than academic deans will retain administrative positions. The state of Alabama, UAT, and the SEC NEED Auburn open, which is partly why&lt;br /&gt;
  1773. (6) Auburn will (almost certainly) not receive the Death Penalty. This is the only part of my information that I wish I felt more comfortable about. There is talk among those in the NCAA office of TV blackouts, scholly reductions in the 50+ (over at least 4 years) range, limits on assistants, and a revocation of almost all recruiting rights. Monstrous fines will be levied as well. This brings me to my last point,&lt;br /&gt;
  1774. (7) Most of the Auburn folks were grossly unaware of any of this. Chizik&#39;s reputation is dead amongst many boosters and faculty. There was a meeting at an airport to discuss what everyone (boosters, admins, etc.) knew, and as the meeting went on, anger turned to fear, fear turned to rage, and rage turned into disbelief. It was during this meeting that possible implications on SACS was brought up, during which point near panic ensued. The Auburn folks are waiting on the hammer, when they should be preparing for the bomb.&lt;br /&gt;
  1775. &lt;br /&gt;
  1776. So, take all of this with a grain (or truckload) of salt. I won&#39;t post again, so don&#39;t post anything expecting a reply from me. Forget about all of this crap with &quot;a big story coming in X days&quot;- there is no timetable for this. Expect this to go slowly, and expect Auburn to finish its season with no NCAA/SEC intervention. Once again, I am passing along information that I trust- what you do with it is your choice.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;

  1803.    <title>Thoughts on Game 3 - Arkansas</title>
  1804.    <link></link>
  1805.    <description>This one left a pretty bad taste in my mouth. Where&#39;s AJ Green when you need him? He&#39;s sitting on the sidelines, still suspended, because the NCAA plays favorites with Alabama&#39;s players. For the first half, our offense looked pretty stagnant, and our defense looked pretty decent. They scored most of their points in that first half and only scored a touchdown in the second half, but it was the most crucial of all. We were down by 14 going into the 4th and final quarter and were able to tie the game up at 24. A crucial drive that would have yielded a Blair Walsh field goal was cut short by shitty play calling, go figure.&lt;br /&gt;
  1806. &lt;br /&gt;
  1807. Besides the obvious hurt from the loss, there were a few good things to take away from it:&lt;br /&gt;
  1808. &lt;br /&gt;
  1809. Aaron Murray looks years beyond his time. Yeah, he threw the one pick, but the kid has talent. He completes a nice percentage of his throws and makes some really good decisions, only a few occasions I would have wanted him to do something different. He&#39;s done what the coaches have asked of him and thats manage the game, not win it. But you can tell they did take the training wheels off of him from last week. He opened the game with a nice 18 yard rushing Touchdown which resembled the one in the ULL game and I&#39;m liking the kid more and more as I see him play.&lt;br /&gt;
  1810. &lt;br /&gt;
  1811. The receivers made some good plays in AJ&#39;s absense, but they&#39;ll need to keep that up and even amp it up a bit for the Mississippi State game next week. Washaun Ealey had a decent day running the ball and he looked like he didn&#39;t want to go down, if there was only some better run blocking from our offensive line. The O-line was suppose to be a strength this year and after our 3rd game, they look like a bunch of freshman and contribute little to our offense. I do miss Caleb King being in the game, we could have really used his pass protection skills.&lt;br /&gt;
  1812. &lt;br /&gt;
  1813. Overall I&#39;m happy with our defense, holding them to only 31 points total and 7 in the 2nd half. Grantham is the real deal, and I&#39;m very excited to see how this team will look a year or so down the road when he has more of the players he wants for his system. I&#39;m not happy at all with Bobo&#39;s situational play-calling, he needs to hand it over to Richt and just coordinate the offense. If we loose the Miss St game because of low scoring, I want him fired by seasons end. 1-3 record because of not scoring enough points is unacceptable when your defense is playing as well as they are (in comparison to last years unit).</description>

  1818.    <title>NCAA: The Real Coach - Part 2</title>
  1819.    <link></link>
  1820.    <description>It has now come to an official close. I have ordered NCAA 11 finally and can put NCAA 09 to rest (skipping 10 altogether obviously). As promised, I am updating you again on our stats and standings as a true coach without restarting and games or forcing and recruits to sign/stay with our school(s). Here&#39;s the full record and season by season results as of right now, where they won&#39;t change much between now and the day I receive 11:&lt;br /&gt;
  1821. &lt;br /&gt;
  1822. &lt;b&gt;Career Record:&lt;/b&gt; 226-10&lt;br /&gt;
  1823. &lt;b&gt;Winning Seasons:&lt;/b&gt; 16 (All)&lt;br /&gt;
  1824. &lt;b&gt;Longest Win Streak:&lt;/b&gt; 89 (current)&lt;br /&gt;
  1825. &lt;b&gt;Record vs Top 25:&lt;/b&gt; 83-5&lt;br /&gt;
  1826. &lt;b&gt;Record vs Rivals:&lt;/b&gt; 41-2&lt;br /&gt;
  1827. &lt;b&gt;Bowl Records:&lt;/b&gt; 16-1 (one loss game in the National Championship in our 2nd or 3rd season with Baylor, I forgot which)&lt;br /&gt;
  1828. &lt;b&gt;Conference Titles:&lt;/b&gt; 16 (all)&lt;br /&gt;
  1829. &lt;b&gt;National Titles:&lt;/b&gt; 8&lt;br /&gt;
  1830. &lt;br /&gt;
  1831. Impeccable huh? Would you hire me? You can do the math and see that out of our 10 total losses: 5 came against ranked teams in the Top 25, 2 against rivals and one in bowls. This leaves one game which we lost in a regular season somewhere to an unranked and non-rival foe.&lt;br /&gt;
  1832. &lt;br /&gt;
  1833. 1. &lt;b&gt;Akron&lt;/b&gt;: it won&#39;t let me scroll down that far, but this was our first season, and I believe we went 11-3 and we did make it to the conference game but lost. Regardless I&#39;m pretty sure this was already documented in part 1 of The Real Coach series.&lt;br /&gt;
  1834. &lt;br /&gt;
  1835. 2. &lt;b&gt;Cal &lt;/b&gt;(13-0)&lt;br /&gt;
  1836. 3. &lt;b&gt;Cal &lt;/b&gt;(13-0)&lt;br /&gt;
  1837. 4. &lt;b&gt;Cal &lt;/b&gt;(13-0) obviously at this point our team was too good, especially this last year because of the recruiting -- time to leave! After leaving, Cal has so far been able to sustain their success without me&lt;br /&gt;
  1838. &lt;br /&gt;
  1839. 5. &lt;b&gt;Kentucky &lt;/b&gt;(14-0) The funniest thing and something I&#39;ve never seen before. One of the tailbacks on our starting depth chart actually was better at kicking than both our starting kicker AND punter! So I let him take those kicks, as well as run the ball and return punts/kicks. He was single-handedly responsible for this seasons success and I did not recruit him.&lt;br /&gt;
  1840. 6. &lt;b&gt;Kentucky &lt;/b&gt;(14-0)&lt;br /&gt;
  1841. 7. &lt;b&gt;Kentucky &lt;/b&gt;(14-0) same here as with Cal, too damn easy with this kind of team; however Kentucky has since been unable to sustain their success as we did not stay long enough to get them quite enough quality depth past their starting 22.&lt;br /&gt;
  1842. &lt;br /&gt;
  1843. 8. &lt;b&gt;Florida State&lt;/b&gt; (14-0) a fluke season where I only went there to rejuvenate a losing FSU team. They were stacked on offense and I sent them in the right direction, we left immediately after winning the Nat.&lt;br /&gt;
  1844. &lt;br /&gt;
  1845. 9. &lt;b&gt;Baylor &lt;/b&gt;(10-4); with an extremely undermanned Baylor team, it was time to rebuild this program. After building up many of our losses early in the season (were sitting at 3-4 I believe, we were able to storm back and win out getting us to the conference championship -- which we won)&lt;br /&gt;
  1846. 10. &lt;b&gt;Baylor &lt;/b&gt;(13-1) I forget if this was the season we lost the Nat or lost in the regular season to Oklahoma but regardless it ruined our season. This year was the end of our starting 3 year contract, FSU counted as the first since we quit that job rather than waiting for the contract to end. We had to renew it for 6 years (only option) so that we could have a chance at getting them to a Nat or 2.&lt;br /&gt;
  1847. 11. &lt;b&gt;Baylor &lt;/b&gt;(13-1) back-to-back 1 loss seasons are a drag. But again, I can&#39;t remember if this or the last one was our Nat loss, still no national championships.&lt;br /&gt;
  1848. 12. &lt;b&gt;Baylor &lt;/b&gt;(14-0) we finally get to an undefeated season and don&#39;t get picked for the Nat game, we instead dominate the Orange bowl.&lt;br /&gt;
  1849. 13. &lt;b&gt;Baylor &lt;/b&gt;(14-0) a slap in the face by again not being picked for the nat and skipped over for the Orange bowl, we now own the Orange bowl championship two years in a row.&lt;br /&gt;
  1850. 14. &lt;b&gt;Baylor &lt;/b&gt;(14-0) our first national championship. Victory is sweet, and the team is really starting to take shape, recruiting has started to show especially on defense.&lt;br /&gt;
  1851. 15. &lt;b&gt;Baylor &lt;/b&gt;(14-0) national championship #2. It&#39;s time to leave, but our contract isn&#39;t up yet. We want to be able to pick from all teams, so we wait out the contract for another year.&lt;br /&gt;
  1852. 16. &lt;b&gt;Baylor &lt;/b&gt;(14-0) national champions again, and the team now has some real quality depth; since its the last year of our contract, we see fit that it is time to leave.&lt;br /&gt;
  1853. 17. &lt;b&gt;Vanderbilt &lt;/b&gt;(14-0) yep you read it right. We chose another shitty SEC east team (to boost the competition level in that division for obvious reasons). And no 14-0 was NO fluke. Each game was carefully coached and we had quite impressive QB play from the 5th year senior whom I did not recruit. However, I did bring in our starting tailback and a speedy receiver at 97 who actually only played the first 2 games and last 2 games of the season because of injury. Won the SEC but skipped over for the Nat due to a non-existent preseason ranking. Dominated in the Sugar Bowl.&lt;br /&gt;
  1854. &lt;br /&gt;
  1855. We are now in our 2nd season with Vandy and are already on the roll for another undefeated season but it will most likely be cut short due to the fact that 11 is already on its way!</description>

  1860.    <title>Grantham reacts to Spurrier comment</title>
  1861.    <link></link>
  1862.    <description>Just a little tidbit I found while reading another blog. I found Grantham&#39;s response perfect, to say the least:&lt;br /&gt;
  1863. &lt;br /&gt;
  1864. On Saturday, Spurrier said this, “That little inside play (we ran), the NFL doesn’t run that play. That’s a new scheme I guess. I’m sure they knew we’d run it. But they certainly didn’t stop it much.” Grantham spent the past 11 seasons as an assistant in the NFL. Asked about the comments Tuesday, Grantham grinned. “It was kind of an out-of-left-field comment,” Grantham said. “I kind of took it more as a shot at the NFL. I wasn’t really sure if it was because of his lack of success there or not.” Spurrier went 12-20 in two seasons as an NFL head coach. “I appreciate his assistance,” Grantham said.</description>

  1869.    <title>Thoughts on Game 2 - South Carolina</title>
  1870.    <link></link>
  1871.    <description>Utter disappointment. I don&#39;t know how else to describe it. First off, I think the overshadowing fact of this loss is if Washaun Ealey hadn&#39;t fumbled in the red-zone (as he did last year against Kentucky) we would have tied this game up, rather than turned it over and lost any chance of winning this game. Pathetic...&lt;br /&gt;
  1872. &lt;br /&gt;
  1873. One thing I saw that I liked was our defense. We actually looked to be standing around most of the time and weren&#39;t flying to the ball like we did in the first game. However, we held them under 20 points, which is an improvement over last year. We got the one fumble in our favor as well but no interceptions.&lt;br /&gt;
  1874. &lt;br /&gt;
  1875. I was very disappointed with the run game. I guess Caleb King was hurt because he didn&#39;t take a single snap today and Carlton Thomas only had one meaningless carry for a single yard. Ealey didn&#39;t put up enough yards and we didn&#39;t have a steady run game. 19 carries for 75 yards of course no touchdowns and the one fumble.&lt;br /&gt;
  1876. &lt;br /&gt;
  1877. I still love me some Aaron Murray. He didn&#39;t make any mistakes today, just the rest of his team did not execute. 14 of 21 for 192 yards no touchdowns and no picks or fumbles. 6 points is ridiculous for the Georgia Bulldogs. I really missed AJ Green, though. Without him, we didn&#39;t seem to be able to pull off any big plays and we had a hell of a lot of 3 and outs. I really think the offensive coordinator hand cuffed Murray&#39;s ability to run and create plays with his feet, he had no rushing yards work posting.&lt;br /&gt;
  1878. &lt;br /&gt;
  1879. After the 2nd week last season, we were 1-1. After the 2nd week this season, we are 1-1. I&#39;m not feeling very good about Arkansas at all.&lt;br /&gt;
  1880. &lt;br /&gt;
  1881. &lt;b&gt;The Good News:&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1882. &lt;br /&gt;
  1883. Georgia Tech also lost today. MWAHAHAHA!</description>

  1895.    <title>Thoughts on Game 1 - Louisiana Lafayette</title>
  1896.    <link></link>
  1897.    <description>First of all, like most fans have already stated; whens the last time as a Georgia fan you were actually excited to see our defense on the field? Our defense seemed to fly to the ball on every play and we were applying mad pressure throughout the game. We allowed under 100 yards of offense by ULL and 60 of it came on one play. On that one play, the crowd actually cheered - of course not because of the blown coverage, but because of our new defensive coordinator&#39;s response on the sidelines. I&#39;m feeling a lot more confident about our defense this year than last year.&lt;br /&gt;
  1898. &lt;br /&gt;
  1899. The running game looked decent, considering ULL loaded the box on every play and tried to out-man us in the trenches. We still posted 180~ yards rushing, with our 2nd and 3rd string tailbacks. We will have to do better then that to make a run in the SEC east though.&lt;br /&gt;
  1900. &lt;br /&gt;
  1901. With AJ Green sidelined and Tavarres King&#39;s suspension, we got to see some of our backup receivers making plays. Kris Durham looked especially good, being the go-to receiver for most of the night in place of AJ. Logan Gray, previously a backup quarterback, even made a few plays with his hands in his debut as a receiver. On one play, Aaron Murray had made a great scramble and pass to Logan for what would have been a touchdown, had Logan pulled in the catch (it went right through his hands).&lt;br /&gt;
  1902. &lt;br /&gt;
  1903. I love me some Aaron Murray. Regardless of what team we were playing against and what the coaches had to say about his scrambling -- I think he&#39;s exactly the type of quarterback we need in Athens. The second year freshman looked great passing and making decisions, posting a final stat line of 17/26 passing for 160 yards and 3 touchdowns; rushing for for 42 yards on 4 attempts and a touchdown (with a long run of 21 yards). He made a great play right before the half ended to run the ball in the end-zone on a scramble. He did however throw 1 pick that slipped through Kris Durham&#39;s hands and into a ULL defenders&#39; -- and another bad pass toward the back of the end-zone was almost intercepted but dropped. So the true pick wasn&#39;t his fault, and the one he almost threw, didn&#39;t happen. He got lucky on one and unlucky on another. &lt;br /&gt;
  1904. &lt;br /&gt;
  1905. Backup true freshman quarterback Hutson Mason began his college debut in clean-up duty by throwing a touchdown pass to Logan Gray (ironic?) on his first pass attempt, joining about 10 others in major college football history to do the same. He looked decent, but I don&#39;t want to see him on the field unless its clean-up duty. Period. 2 of 5 for 33 yards and a touchdown.&lt;br /&gt;
  1906. &lt;br /&gt;
  1907. Overall, I&#39;m thoroughly pleased with the season opener. The offense looked vanilla and we didn&#39;t put anything special on film for the Gamecocks to study from, yet we still put up 50+ points. Our defense looked solid. Opposing SEC offenses may want to stop banking on the fact that they can put up 30+ points on us a game -- as I don&#39;t see that happening this year. I see our defense actually winning us some games rather than losing them.&lt;br /&gt;
  1908. &lt;br /&gt;
  1909. I plan to post one of these &quot;Thoughts on Game X - Team XXX&quot; for each game we play this season... so stay tuned.</description>

  1914.    <title>2010&#39;s Most Important Games</title>
  1915.    <link></link>
  1916.    <description>1. vs. Florida, Oct. 30: After all, it is the single-most important game of any Georgia season, right? There’s also a good chance this game could determine the division title, since the Gators, for the first time in a while, aren’t expected to be unbeaten and eyeing a BCS title come late October. So it’s more like Georgia is hoping this ends up being the most important game of its season. If it ends up being South Carolina or Arkansas, that doesn’t bode well.&lt;br /&gt;
  1917. &lt;br /&gt;
  1918. 2. vs. Georgia Tech, Nov. 27: The job Paul Johnson has done turning around the Yellow Jackets has restored this game to being worthy of rivalry week. It was once unthinkable to say Georgia Tech would pass Georgia as a program — but this year, for the first time in a decade, the Jackets start out ahead of the Bulldogs in the preseason polls. So, if things play out close to expected this season, the regular season finale should say a lot about where Georgia is as a program in Mark Richt’s 10th season.&lt;br /&gt;
  1919. &lt;br /&gt;
  1920. 3. at South Carolina, Sept. 11: A good case could be made for this being in the first or second spot. This second game sets the tone for the season, as the Bulldogs and Gamecocks were picked second and third, respectively, in the SEC East, separated by just one vote. The winner will be marked as the main competition for Florida in the East. The loser will have its season (prematurely) buried by observers.&lt;br /&gt;
  1921. &lt;br /&gt;
  1922. 4. vs. Arkansas, Sept. 18: This caps a huge pair of games for Georgia against seemingly similar teams. If it emerges from the two-game stretch unscathed, the season has a chance to be special. If it splits them, a lot remains to be decided. If both are losses, the Bulldogs are starting in a huge hole.&lt;br /&gt;
  1923. &lt;br /&gt;
  1924. 5. at Kentucky, Oct. 23: The Wildcats should end up fighting to finish in the upper third in the East this season under new head coach Joker Phillips. Beyond that, it’s a big one for Georgia, which would love to flush perhaps last year’s most deflating loss. A solid road win would do a lot to show this season really is different.&lt;br /&gt;
  1925. &lt;br /&gt;
  1926. 6. at Auburn, Nov. 13: OK, for rivalry purposes, it should matter more. And if things play out right, it could have a big effect on the SEC East race. But in a season of key games, as we sit here in August, this one seems overshadowed. The Bulldogs would be excited to get their first five-game winning streak over Auburn since the 1940s.&lt;br /&gt;
  1927. &lt;br /&gt;
  1928. 7. at Mississippi State, Sept. 25: This has hazardous written all over it. Dan Mullen is hoping his spread-option offense will start to get rolling in his second year, making it a tough early season test for new Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. Georgia hasn’t lost to Mississippi State since 1974. If it happens in 2010, get ready for more Georgia-is-down storylines.&lt;br /&gt;
  1929. &lt;br /&gt;
  1930. 8. vs. Tennessee, Oct. 9: How can a game against the Volunteers be so low? That’s how mediocre the Vols are supposed to be this year. Yes, it’ll be a great story to have Derek Dooley in Athens. But Georgia figures to be a heavy favorite, especially if Aaron Murray is entering a comfort zone by that point.&lt;br /&gt;
  1931. &lt;br /&gt;
  1932. 9. at Colorado, Oct. 2: This will be a nice road trip for the Bulldogs and their fans. Boulder is a great college town, sort of an Athens-West. It could also be a dangerous test for Georgia, as it is any time a team has to travel so far and play an opponent it knows nothing about. That’s why it wouldn’t be the end of the world if the Bulldogs lost, but also wouldn’t be a huge resume builder if they won.&lt;br /&gt;
  1933. &lt;br /&gt;
  1934. 10. vs. Louisiana-Lafayette, Sept. 4: The temptation is to rank this game higher, considering it will be the official unveiling of the new quarterback and defense. The reason it doesn’t go higher is it’s still a non-conference tilt against a Rajin’ Cajuns team that was 6-6 last year. It’s not quite a simple warm-up game, but it’s not exactly a tough test either. That comes the following week.&lt;br /&gt;
  1935. &lt;br /&gt;
  1936. 11. vs. Vanderbilt, Oct. 16: The only way this game matters a lot is if the Commodores are better than expected under new head coach Robbie Caldwell. That’s possible, and they do have some good players (tailback Warren Norman, linebacker Chris Marve). But the Commodores are unsettled at quarterback and coming off a two-win season.&lt;br /&gt;
  1937. &lt;br /&gt;
  1938. 12. vs. Idaho State, Nov. 6: Well, really. Not only is it an FCS opponent, but Idaho State went 1-10 last year. Yikes. Seeing as how this one is scheduled in between Florida and Auburn, it could end up being a good time to rest a few starters, at least after the Bulldogs presumably build a big lead.&lt;br /&gt;

  1953.    <title>Feds shut down girls lemonade stand</title>
  1954.    <link></link>
  1955.    <description>PORTLAND, Ore. – A county official in Oregon has apologized after a 7-year-old&#39;s business venture was soured because health inspectors shut down her lemonade stand.&lt;br /&gt;
  1956. &lt;br /&gt;
  1957. Multnomah County Chairman Jeff Cogen, the county&#39;s top elected official, said Thursday that running a lemonade stand is a &quot;classic iconic American kid thing to do.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1958. &lt;br /&gt;
  1959. He says he called Julie Murphy&#39;s mother, Maria Fife, to offer his apology and says she appreciated it.&lt;br /&gt;
  1960. &lt;br /&gt;
  1961. Fife helped her daughter set up a lemonade stand last week at a local arts fair in northeast Portland. They had to pack up and leave after being approached by two inspectors who said the stand lacked a license.&lt;br /&gt;
  1962. &lt;br /&gt;
  1963. Cogen says while the inspectors were doing their job, the rules are meant for professional food service operators. He adds he ran lemonade stands as a child.&lt;br /&gt;
  1964. &lt;br /&gt;

  1984.    <title>NCAA: The Real Coach</title>
  1985.    <link></link>
  1986.    <description>I&#39;ve been over playing the 09 edition of EA Sport&#39;s NCAA Football for the past year or so and like most people I would restart a season game if it wasn&#39;t going my way, just to stay undefeated and take home consecutive national championships. I ran my UGA dynasty all the way to the 60 year mark and they fired me because I just had to be too old or something. I realized then that most of my dynasty was a blur, I probably simmed most of the games on my later schedules because of how well my team was built, it was just too easy, and I had &quot;cheated&quot; too much along the way in key games. &lt;br /&gt;
  1987. &lt;br /&gt;
  1988. Yes, I know, 09 is really outdated, and I should be playing 11 by now. As soon as I can get up the extra cash to buy 11, I will, and I&#39;ll do a similar dynasty there.&lt;br /&gt;
  1989. &lt;br /&gt;
  1990. So I decided to start a new dynasty where the rules are: Can&#39;t restart a game. If it&#39;s going bad, and the power doesn&#39;t go out or something that forces me to restart it, I have to accept the loss. No restarting for first week commitments. Before, I would restart it multiple times until all of my #1 ranked recruits accepted my offer in the first week of the season. This is no longer allowed and I must take what I&#39;m given on the first try. I also can not do the same when it comes to star players leaving for the NFL. I can still give them one shot at a phone call, but can&#39;t restart it if they decide to transfer or leave early. &lt;br /&gt;
  1991. &lt;br /&gt;
  1992. What this does is create the element of a real team, basing most of that stuff (besides the games themselves) on luck and un-enabling myself from forming a massive powerhouse so soon. So now, it get&#39;s real challenging, which makes it a lot more fun. To make things even more challenging, I started with a very crappy team, in a very crappy conference where losses are almost guaranteed, with the SEC/ACC picking you for season opener blow-outs. I am now in my 5th season as a head coach. Here are my stats:&lt;br /&gt;
  1993. &lt;br /&gt;
  1994. &lt;b&gt;1st season:&lt;/b&gt; Akron Zips (MAC conference)&lt;br /&gt;
  1995. 11 wins 3 losses; visit to the conference championship and lost; won the GMAC bowl&lt;br /&gt;
  1996. &lt;br /&gt;
  1997. Took one of the job offers we received (tell me, would YOU stay at Akron?)&lt;br /&gt;
  1998. &lt;br /&gt;
  1999. &lt;b&gt;2nd season:&lt;/b&gt; California Golden Bears (PAC-10 conference)&lt;br /&gt;
  2000. 12 wins, 1 loss; auto-win conference; won Rose Bowl (#4 recruiting class)&lt;br /&gt;
  2001. &lt;br /&gt;
  2002. &lt;b&gt;3rd season:&lt;/b&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  2003. 13 wins, 0 losses; auto-win conference; won Rose Bowl (#1 recruiting class)&lt;br /&gt;
  2004. &lt;br /&gt;
  2005. At this point, I&#39;m pissed at being screwed out of the National Championship game and demand an appearance before I leave Cal. I still haven&#39;t gotten my first Nat as a head coach.&lt;br /&gt;
  2006. &lt;br /&gt;
  2007. &lt;b&gt;4th season:&lt;/b&gt; last year on Cal contract, with intentions of leaving for a more challenging rebuilding project in the SEC&lt;br /&gt;
  2008. 13 wins, 0 losses; auto-win conference; won National Championship vs Miami Hurricanes&lt;br /&gt;
  2009. &lt;br /&gt;
  2010. It&#39;s not like any of that was easy either. All of it is played on Heisman mode of course, and with me bringing in freshman stars and moving people around on the depth chart. &lt;br /&gt;
  2011. &lt;br /&gt;
  2012. Now I&#39;ve got a Nat under my belt and feel I&#39;ve earned the right to coach anywhere. Turning Akron into a winning program and Cal into a powerhouse out west. Now is the time to leave and not renew my 3-year contract. No longer do we have to pick from 2-3 available job offers. We are able to look for a new job from the list. Every team in the country wants me, including the national championship loser Miami, and Cal wants to extend my contract for 10 years. Can&#39;t coach with a team I&#39;ve already coached or a team that I despise. &lt;br /&gt;
  2013. &lt;br /&gt;
  2014. I picked &lt;b&gt;Kentucky&lt;/b&gt;. This should be quite the challenge, adding a bunch of losses to my astonishing final record from the past 4 seasons:&lt;br /&gt;
  2015. &lt;br /&gt;
  2016. &lt;b&gt;Career record:&lt;/b&gt; 51-4&lt;br /&gt;
  2017. &lt;b&gt;Winning seasons:&lt;/b&gt; 4&lt;br /&gt;
  2018. &lt;b&gt;Longest win streak: &lt;/b&gt;30 games (actively growing)&lt;br /&gt;
  2019. &lt;b&gt;Record vs top 25:&lt;/b&gt; 14-1&lt;br /&gt;
  2020. &lt;b&gt;Record vs rivals: &lt;/b&gt;7-1&lt;br /&gt;
  2021. &lt;b&gt;Bowl record: &lt;/b&gt;4-0&lt;br /&gt;
  2022. &lt;b&gt;Conference Titles: &lt;/b&gt;3&lt;br /&gt;
  2023. &lt;b&gt;National Titles:&lt;/b&gt; 1&lt;br /&gt;
  2024. &lt;br /&gt;
  2025. Would you take me as a Head Coach? Here&#39;s what I bring to ANY team, consecutively, and consistently:&lt;br /&gt;
  2026. &lt;br /&gt;
  2027. 1- Consistent Offense; scoring an average of 40 points a game, known to score up to 70 on Division 1 foes at times. Running a west-coast style of the spread and lining up in multiple formations.&lt;br /&gt;
  2028. 2- Explosive special teams; season after season, my hand selected return men bring in an average of 5 kick returns and 10 punt returns for touchdowns per season.&lt;br /&gt;
  2029. 3- Solid Run-game; my offense is based off of a solid run-game and clock management in close games wins a lot of games for me.&lt;br /&gt;
  2030. 4- Accurate passing game/Solid QB coaching; my QB&#39;s finish on average with 75-80% completions on the year, around 30 TD&#39;s and around 5 interceptions. I won&#39;t accept anything less, and will play an incumbent if the starter has trouble running this offense. This is solid QB play and it&#39;s hard to lose a game when your QB makes few mistakes and is smart with the ball. &lt;br /&gt;
  2031. 5- Dominating Run Defense; installing the 3-4 at every school, we consistently finish the season ranked #1 in rush defense. That speaks for itself. I thank our run defense single-handedly for our success against old powerhouse USC in the PAC-10 when we were with Cal.&lt;br /&gt;
  2032. &lt;br /&gt;
  2033. I&#39;ll update with results to our first season at Kentucky as soon as that season is over, I don&#39;t finish them very fast because I can&#39;t sit at it playing all day of course; so don&#39;t expect it anytime today or this week or anything like that. We&#39;re currently 2-0, knocking out our instate rival Louisville and our old team Akron. After a bye week, we get a lovely trip to Gainesville to take on the #1 Florida Gators for our SEC opener, and division opener. This game clearly will decide if we have a shot to get to the conference title game or not.</description>

  2038.    <title>Tennessee Titans sue Lane Kiffin, Southern Cal</title>
  2039.    <link></link>
  2040.    <description>The Titans on Monday filed a lawsuit against the University of Southern Cal and head coach Lane Kiffin for “maliciously” interfering with the contract of running backs coach Kennedy Pola.&lt;br /&gt;
  2041. &lt;br /&gt;
  2042. The lawsuit was filed in Davidson County Chancery Court and it claims Pola breached his contract with the Titans after being induced by Kiffin. Pola, hired by the Titans in January, was hired by USC over the weekend as the school’s new offensive coordinator.&lt;br /&gt;
  2043. &lt;br /&gt;
  2044. The lawsuit states “as a result of USC and Kiffin’s tortuous conduct, Tennessee (Titans) football has been damaged in an amount proven at trial.’’&lt;br /&gt;
  2045. &lt;br /&gt;
  2046. Titans officials declined comment on Monday. USC officials could not be reached for comment.&lt;br /&gt;
  2047. &lt;br /&gt;
  2048. Over the weekend, Coach Jeff Fisher, a former Southern Cal player, sounded off against Kiffin, who formerly coached at the University of Tennessee, for recruiting Pola without first asking for permission to speak to him.&lt;br /&gt;
  2049. &lt;br /&gt;
  2050. “I am very disappointed in Lane Kiffin’s approach to this,’’ Fisher said on Saturday. “Typically speaking when coaches are interested in hiring or discussing potential employment from coaches on respective staffs there is a courtesy call made from the head coach or athletic director indicating there is an interest in talking to the assistant.&lt;br /&gt;
  2051. &lt;br /&gt;
  2052. “So I am very disappointed in the lack of professionalism on behalf of Lane, to call me and leave me a voice mail after Kennedy had informed me he had taken the job. It is just a lack of professionalism.’’&lt;br /&gt;
  2053. &lt;br /&gt;
  2054. According to the lawsuit, “USC and Kiffin maliciously intended to – and did – induce Pola to breach his contract with the Titans. The lawsuit alleges “USC and Kiffin engaged in improper means in their procedure of the breach and were not legally justified in their actions.’’&lt;br /&gt;
  2055. &lt;br /&gt;
  2056. According to the lawsuit, Pola agreed he would “not under any circumstance solicit discussions or entertain employment with any other person or entity during the term without given written permission to do so,’’ under the terms of his contract with the Titans. Pola was not given written consent by the Titans.&lt;br /&gt;
  2057. &lt;br /&gt;
  2058. “Kiffin and USC’s actions through him were part of a course and pattern of conduct fostered by Kiffin and USC to use improper methods and means to the direct harm and damage of parties to contract, to interfere with an existing contract includes the breach thereof,’’ the lawsuit reads.&lt;br /&gt;
  2059. Related&lt;br /&gt;
  2060. &lt;br /&gt;
  2061. The controversial Kiffin was hired as USC’s football coach in January after serving as the head coach at the University of Tennessee for one season.&lt;br /&gt;
  2062. &lt;br /&gt;
  2063. In January, Fisher hired Pola after firing running backs coach Earnest Byner, a move that raised some eyebrows, especially after Titans running back Chris Johnson led the NFL with 2,006 rushing yards in 2009. But Fisher said he couldn’t pass up an opportunity to hire Pola, who had an expiring contract with the Jaguars. Pola’s contract with the Titans wasn’t set to expire until February, 2011.&lt;br /&gt;
  2064. &lt;br /&gt;
  2065. Kiffin released a statement on Saturday giving his chain of events leading to the hiring. Kiffin could not be reached for comment on Monday.&lt;br /&gt;
  2066. &lt;br /&gt;
  2067. “We reached out to Kennedy Pola yesterday to gauge whether he had any possible interest in returning to USC before we moved forward with the process,&quot; Kiffin said in a statement released by USC.&lt;br /&gt;
  2068. &lt;br /&gt;
  2069. “Kennedy said he would think about it and get back to us (Saturday). Once Kennedy did call back earlier today, out of my great respect for Coach Fisher I immediately reached out to Coach to make him aware of the situation. I have spoken with Coach Fisher and he now has an accurate understanding of the timeline of events.&lt;br /&gt;
  2070. &lt;br /&gt;
  2071. “We realize the timing of this isn’t perfect for all parties, but this is a great opportunity and promotion for Kennedy.”&lt;br /&gt;
  2072. &lt;br /&gt;
  2073. Fisher said he plans to hire Pola’s replacement from a member on his current staff.&lt;br /&gt;
  2074. &lt;br /&gt;
  2075. &lt;span class=&#39;small&#39;&gt;&lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;Link&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;</description>

  2080.    <title>Two Vols Charged in Bar Brawl</title>
  2081.    <link></link>
  2082.    <description>KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Two Tennessee players were charged during an early morning bar brawl that left an off-duty police officer who tried to break up the fight knocked unconscious, and more could be facing charges, police said Friday.&lt;br /&gt;
  2083. &lt;br /&gt;
  2084. Incoming freshman receiver Da&#39;Rick Rogers was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, Knoxville police said. Rising sophomore defensive back Darren Myles Jr. was charged with assault, resisting arrest and evading arrest, University of Tennessee police said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2085. &lt;br /&gt;
  2086. Tennessee coach Derek Dooley dismissed Myles from the team Friday evening and indefinitely suspended sophomore linebacker Greg King and sophomore defensive tackle Marlon Walls, though it was not clear what their alleged roles were in the matter.&lt;br /&gt;
  2087. &lt;br /&gt;
  2088. A campus police report said Myles tried to hide under a car and in some bushes as an officer tried to arrest him, then elbowed the officer in the face. It was the second offseason arrest for Myles, 19. He also was charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest on April 18 after a disturbance at a Knoxville restaurant and nightclub.&lt;br /&gt;
  2089. &lt;br /&gt;
  2090. &quot;It is a privilege, not a right, to be a member of the University of Tennessee football team,&quot; Dooley said in a statement.&lt;br /&gt;
  2091. &lt;br /&gt;
  2092. &quot;The most important responsibility of that privilege is to properly represent this institution and our supporters on and off the field,&quot; the statement added. &quot;I am disappointed and in many ways embarrassed by the poor judgment displayed on many fronts by several members of our football team last night.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2093. &lt;br /&gt;
  2094. Three other players — rising senior receiver Denarius Moore, junior college transfer defensive tackle John Brown and incoming freshman receiver Matt Milton — were detained and questioned but had not been charged as of Friday afternoon. Another player, rising sophomore defensive tackle Montori Hughes, was present but has not been questioned by police.&lt;br /&gt;
  2095. &lt;br /&gt;
  2096. Police said their investigation was ongoing.&lt;br /&gt;
  2097. &lt;br /&gt;
  2098. Robert Capouellez, an off-duty Knoxville officer who was a patron at Bar Knoxville and tried to break up the fight, was being treated for a head injury after being knocked unconscious, Knoxville police spokesman Darrell DeBusk said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2099. &lt;br /&gt;
  2100. Capouellez, 24, was in serious but stable condition at the University of Tennessee Medical Center on Friday afternoon. Police said he was hit in the head, knocked to the ground and then kicked several times.&lt;br /&gt;
  2101. &lt;br /&gt;
  2102. Another patron at the 18-and-up bar, Gary Russell, 20, was treated at UT Medical Center and released.&lt;br /&gt;
  2103. &lt;br /&gt;
  2104. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Atlanta native who was part of Lane Kiffin&#39;s only recruiting class showed promise during spring practice. After the Vols&#39; April 17 spring game, he was awarded the program&#39;s Fourth Quarter Award by coaches for dedication to the program.&lt;br /&gt;
  2105. &lt;br /&gt;
  2106. The 18-year-old Rogers, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound native of Calhoun, Ga., was among Dooley&#39;s first signing class.&lt;br /&gt;
  2107. &lt;br /&gt;
  2108. Both were released from the detention center Friday afternoon. It was not clear if either player had an attorney.&lt;br /&gt;
  2109. &lt;br /&gt;
  2110. Several witnesses told police two patrons got into a fight inside Bar Knoxville around 1:50 a.m., and several others jumped into the melee. Employees pushed the brawl out onto the street.&lt;br /&gt;
  2111. &lt;br /&gt;
  2112. Knoxville attorney Greg Isaacs, who represents Hughes, said that his client was &quot;the victim of an unprovoked assault&quot; and that he has no knowledge of anything that took place outside the bar. Isaacs said he did not expect Hughes to face charges.&lt;br /&gt;
  2113. &lt;br /&gt;
  2114. Sandy Morton, who owns Bar Knoxville with her husband, told the Chattanooga Times Free Press they&#39;ve never had any problems from Vols players. She said many of the players, who are treated as VIPs and don&#39;t pay a cover charge, are on a first-name basis with her husband.&lt;br /&gt;
  2115. &lt;br /&gt;
  2116. &quot;I don&#39;t know what happened, but several of the guys started beating up the other customer,&quot; she told the newspaper. &quot;I want to guess there was seven to 10 guys beating up this one gentleman.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2117. &lt;br /&gt;
  2118. Dooley said he is working to change the culture at Tennessee, a program that has seen a number of player arrests in recent years under multiple coaches.&lt;br /&gt;
  2119. &lt;br /&gt;
  2120. &quot;As I have referenced on many occasions, a change in culture is achieved in time through a combination of education, discipline and support. We will aggressively continue to build on the many positive changes that have occurred over the last five months to ensure our program is represented with class and dignity,&quot; he said.</description>

  2125.    <title>Jackson decides to transfer following six game suspension</title>
  2126.    <link></link>
  2127.    <description>Suspended running back Dontavius Jackson won&#39;t play again for Georgia. The school said Wednesday night that the redshirt sophomore from Franklin has decided to transfer after the summer semester.&lt;br /&gt;
  2128. &lt;br /&gt;
  2129. The announcement comes four days after Jackson was arrested by university police on six misdemeanor charges including DUI, hit and run and underage possession of alcohol and three days after he was suspended by coach Mark Richt for at least the first six games of the season.&lt;br /&gt;
  2130. &lt;br /&gt;
  2131. Jackson had four carries for 38 yards last season and was unlikely to get much playing time once he returned to a backfield that includes Washaun Ealey, Caleb King and Carlton Thomas.&lt;br /&gt;
  2132. &lt;br /&gt;
  2133. Starting wide receiver Tavarres King was also suspended for a minimum of one game after being charged with underage possession of alcohol. He was a passenger in the car Saturday morning that Jackson was driving.&lt;br /&gt;
  2134. &lt;br /&gt;
  2135. Jackson is the fourth Georgia player who was arrested this year that is no longer with the program. Linebacker Montez Robinson, quarterback Zach Mettenberger and punter Trent Dittmer were dismissed from the team.&lt;br /&gt;

  2142.    <title>Experienced Potheads Show No Change In Task Performance</title>
  2143.    <link></link>
  2144.    <description>If you&#39;re going to smoke pot, for goodness&#39; sakes, smoke it every day, man.&lt;br /&gt;
  2145. &lt;br /&gt;
  2146. Experienced marijuana consumers show virtually no changes in cognitive performance after using cannabis, according to clinical trial data published online this week in the journal Pharmacology, Biochemistry and Behavior.&lt;br /&gt;
  2147. &lt;br /&gt;
  2148. Investigators at Columbia University in New York and San Francisco Brain Research Institute assessed acute marijuana-related effects on cognitive functioning in 24 volunteers who reported consuming cannabis at least 24 times per week, reports NORML.&lt;br /&gt;
  2149. &lt;br /&gt;
  2150. Scientists found that participants&#39; overall performance accuracy on episodic memory and working memory tasks &quot;was not significantly altered by marijuana.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2151. &lt;br /&gt;
  2152. &quot;The present findings show that smoked marijuana produced minimal effects on episodic and spatial working memory of near-daily smokers,&quot; the researchers concluded.&lt;br /&gt;
  2153. &lt;br /&gt;
  2154. &quot;The overall response accuracy on the word recognition and working memory tasks was unaffected by marijuana, although smoked marijuana did increase the amount of time participants needed to complete these tasks,&quot; investigators said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2155. &lt;br /&gt;
  2156. &quot;The pattern of effects is consistent with results previously reported by other researchers studying the acute effects of marijuana on cognitive performance of regular users,&quot; the study said. &quot;The finding... stands in contrast to previous findings in occasional smokers who showed reduced accuracy on these same tasks after marijuana.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2157. &lt;br /&gt;
  2158. &quot;The observation that frequent users&#39; response accuracy is not altered after marijuana smoking to the same extent it is for infrequent users... suggests that near-daily marijuana smokers may have developed tolerance to some marijuana-related behavioral effects.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2159. &lt;br /&gt;

  2165.    <title>Two more Bulldogs arrested</title>
  2166.    <link></link>
  2167.    <description>Dontavius Deshawn Jackson, a redshirt sophomore tailback, was arrested and charged with a host of charges early Saturday, including DUI, leaving the scene of an accident and underage possession of alcohol. Redshirt sophomore split end Tavarres King was arrested with Jackson, charged with underage possession of alcohol.&lt;br /&gt;
  2168. &lt;br /&gt;
  2169. Jackson, 20, was arrested by University police and booked into the Athens-Clarke County Jail at 6:25 a.m. The charges, all misdemeanor, include violating the move over law, driving with a learner’s permit and following too closely. King, 19, was booked at 5:55 a.m. and released at 7:04 a.m. Also arrested with King and Jackson were Darren Brooks Whatley, 18, and University student [&lt;i&gt;name retracted by request&lt;/i&gt;] 20. They were both charged with underage possession of alcohol. Whatley was booked in the ACC jail at 6:10 a.m. and Azar at 5:40 a.m. A fifth passenger was not charged.&lt;br /&gt;
  2170. &lt;br /&gt;
  2171. UGA Police Chief Jimmy Williamson told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that two patrol cars were making an unrelated stop when the car driven by Jackson, a Chevrolet Avalanche, passed by without moving over. A UGA officer started to follow the Avalanche as a report of an incident moments earlier where a car had left the scene of an accident came over the radio. The Avalanche matched the description of the car leaving the scene of the accident.&lt;br /&gt;
  2172. &lt;br /&gt;
  2173. “It just happened that our officer was behind that vehicle when the third officer put the information on the radio,” Williamson told the AJC.&lt;br /&gt;
  2174. &lt;br /&gt;
  2175. Georgia football coach Mark Richt is aware of the arrests but has not made any statements.&lt;br /&gt;
  2176. &lt;br /&gt;
  2177. This marks the third arrest for a Georgia football player in a week, as cornerback Jordan Love was arrested Monday and charged with obstruction of a UGA police officer.&lt;br /&gt;
  2178. &lt;br /&gt;
  2179. Jackson’s name came up earlier this year during an incident with two University students in a taxi cab when Jackson said he was the “peacemaker.”  According to the ACC police report, a married University couple fell victim to simple battery and terroristic threats on March 29 as they rode to their home in an A&amp;A Taxi at 2:04 a.m. The police report initially stated UGA football players were the culprits, but a later investigation proved that wrong. Jackson was in the cab, it was later revealed, and served to calm the situation down.&lt;br /&gt;
  2180. &lt;br /&gt;
  2181. Under University Athletic Association rules, student-athletes found in violation of the alcohol policy are suspended for 10 percent of the games for the season, which means Jackson and King would sit out the season opener against Louisiana-Lafayette on Sept. 4.&lt;br /&gt;
  2182. &lt;br /&gt;
  2183. Jackson appeared in four games in 2009 and recorded the first three carries of his career at Vanderbilt gaining 38 yards. King appeared in 12 games with nine starts making 18 receptions for 377 yards and a touchdown, including a career-best and team-high 109 receiving yards on three receptions against Kentucky.</description>

  2188.    <title>Would legalizing pot really lower prices and increase use?</title>
  2189.    <link></link>
  2190.    <description>Legalizing marijuana could cause the drug&#39;s price to plummet while increasing use by an uncertain amount, according to a new study from a respected public-policy think tank.&lt;br /&gt;
  2191. &lt;br /&gt;
  2192. RAND Corp. researchers say known production costs and surveys of marijuana&#39;s current price suggest the untaxed retail price of high-quality marijuana could drop to as low as $38 per ounce, compared with about $375 per ounce now.&lt;br /&gt;
  2193. &lt;br /&gt;
  2194. &quot;There is considerable uncertainty about the impact that legalizing marijuana in California will have on consumption and public budgets,&quot; said RAND Drug Policy Research Center co-director Beau Kilmer, the study&#39;s lead author, cautioning against believing anyone who claims to know precisely how legalization would play out. &quot;No government has legalized the production and distribution of marijuana for general use, so there is little evidence on which to base any predictions about how this might work in California.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2195. &lt;br /&gt;
  2196. Much of the current price of marijuana essentially is compensation to growers and dealers for the risks of being prosecuted or robbed — risks that would disappear or be minimized by legalization. Also, automated cultivation techniques and economies of scale — running bigger or multiple grows — would reduce labor and supply costs.&lt;br /&gt;
  2197. &lt;br /&gt;
  2198. Past research indicates marijuana consumption goes up when prices go down, they say, but the increase in consumption can&#39;t be predicted because nobody has ever studied what would happen&lt;br /&gt;
  2199. &lt;br /&gt;
  2200. if prices were so low. Consumption also might rise because of advertising or de-stigmatization, they said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2201. &lt;br /&gt;
  2202. The state Board of Equalization last year estimated that taxing legal marijuana could raise more than $1 billion in annual revenue, but RAND warns revenue could vary widely according to levels of taxation, tax evasion and response by the federal government, which still bans all marijuana possession, cultivation and use.&lt;br /&gt;
  2203. &lt;br /&gt;
  2204. Proposition 19 on the Nov. 2 ballot would let those age 21 or older possess, grow or transport marijuana for personal use, and would let cities and counties decide whether to regulate and tax commercial production and sale, most likely creating a system of &quot;wet&quot; and &quot;dry&quot; counties as in states with similar alcohol laws.&lt;br /&gt;
  2205. &lt;br /&gt;
  2206. It also would boost the criminal penalty for giving marijuana to a minor, prohibit consumption in public or while minors are present, and maintain existing laws against driving under the influence.&lt;br /&gt;
  2207. &lt;br /&gt;
  2208. Also, a pending bill by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, would legalize marijuana for those 21 or older and task the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control with regulating cultivation and sale. Assembly Bill 2254 would create a $50-per-ounce excise tax with proceeds used to fund drug education, awareness, and rehabilitation programs under state Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs.&lt;br /&gt;
  2209. &lt;br /&gt;
  2210. California&#39;s taxed, legal marijuana would still be cheaper and easier to get than untaxed, illegal marijuana in other states, so intrastate smuggling seems likely, the study notes.&lt;br /&gt;
  2211. &lt;br /&gt;
  2212. &quot;Legalizing marijuana in California could depress sinsemilla prices and increase consumption throughout the nation,&quot; the study notes. &quot;Since the rest of the lower 48 states have about six times as many marijuana users as does California, taxes on exports could dramatically increase California&#39;s tax revenues.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2213. &lt;br /&gt;
  2214. Even under a scenario with high taxes of $50 per ounce and a moderate rate of tax evasion around 25 percent, researchers can&#39;t rule out consumption increases of 50 percent to 100 percent and possibly larger, the study said. If use increased by 100 percent, that would be close to the levels of the late 1970s.&lt;br /&gt;
  2215. &lt;br /&gt;
  2216. The 2007 National Survey on Drug Use and Health said 7 percent of Californians age 12 or older reported having used marijuana within the previous 30 days, compared with 6 percent nationwide. That&#39;s compared with 1978, around the height of the nation&#39;s marijuana use, when the RAND study said about 13.2 percent of the population 12 and over reported past-month marijuana use. About 19.4 percent of high-school seniors reported past-month marijuana use at that time.&lt;br /&gt;
  2217. &lt;br /&gt;
  2218. The RAND study also suggests that the cost of enforcing current marijuana laws is smaller than sometimes suggested, probably totaling less than $300 million per year. Actually, the Control &amp; Tax Cannabis 2010 committee that is supporting Prop. 19 cited a study by the California chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws that estimated the savings at over $200 million.&lt;br /&gt;
  2219. &lt;br /&gt;
  2220. It&#39;s unclear whether legalizing marijuana would increase or decrease drug treatment costs, the study says: More than half of the 32,000 admissions for treatment of marijuana abuse in California in 2009 resulted from criminal justice referrals, which would drop if the drug becomes legal, but increased use could lead to more people seeking treatment voluntarily.&lt;br /&gt;
  2221. &lt;br /&gt;
  2222. &quot;Our goal is not to tell people how to vote. We do not have a horse in this race,&quot; Kilmer told reporters Wednesday. &quot;Our goal is to provide information to move the debate forward.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2223. &lt;br /&gt;
  2224. California&#39;s branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People last week endorsed Prop. 19. Branch President Alice Huffman called it a civil rights issue because prohibition disproportionately targets young men of color for prosecution, &quot;the latest tool for imposing Jim Crow justice on poor African-Americans.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2225. &lt;br /&gt;
  2226. Bishop Ron Allen of the International Faith-Based Coalition held a news conference Wednesday in Sacramento to oppose the NAACP&#39;s position and call for Huffman&#39;s resignation.&lt;br /&gt;
  2227. &lt;br /&gt;

  2233.    <title>Third String DB J Love arrested</title>
  2234.    <link></link>
  2235.    <description>A “breakdown” in communication apparently resulted in the arrest of a University of Georgia football player Monday night, UGA police Chief Jimmy Williamson said early this afternoon.&lt;br /&gt;
  2236. &lt;br /&gt;
  2237. Cornerback Jordan Lawrence Love, 19, was charged with misdemeanor obstruction, but he did not willingly try to deceive the officer, who was investigating a complaint that men were shooting off fireworks in the courtyard of McWhorter Hall, Williamson said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2238. &lt;br /&gt;
  2239. “Mr. Love gave his first and last name, but he said he didn’t know his middle name, then said he kind of knew it, but didn’t know how to spell it,” Williamson said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2240. &lt;br /&gt;
  2241. “After I spoke with family members today I could see the officer’s point of view, where he thought Mr. Love was evasive and uncooperative, but (Love’s) mother explained that he does not go by his middle name for personal reasons,” Williamson said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2242. &lt;br /&gt;
  2243. Once an officer arrests someone, police cannot drop the charges, but the arresting officer will present the new information to an Athens-Clarke County Magistrate Court judge, possibly later today, Williamson said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2244. &lt;br /&gt;
  2245. “I think now that the circumstances are more clear, we have the responsibility to bring that to the judge’s attention and let him determine if there is probable cause” for an arrest, the police chief said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2246. &lt;br /&gt;
  2247. Love should not have been arrested, Williamson said, but the officer probably made the decision to lock up the third-string redshirt freshman based on previous experience with deceptive and uncooperative offenders.&lt;br /&gt;
  2248. &lt;br /&gt;
  2249. “After multiple unsuccessful attempts to obtain Love’s date of birth and the spelling of his middle name,  Love was placed under arrest at (10:07 p.m.) for misdemeanor obstruction,” the officer wrote in the arrest report.&lt;br /&gt;
  2250. &lt;br /&gt;
  2251. He was booked into the Clarke County Jail at 11:35 p.m. and released on a $5,000 bond at 1:03 a.m. today.&lt;br /&gt;
  2252. &lt;br /&gt;
  2253. “I’m not saying the officer did anything wrong, but looking back, as police chief, I think there are some things we could have done a little better,” Williamson said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2254. &lt;br /&gt;
  2255. Williamson plans to use Love’s arrest as a “learning opportunity” when training officers how to interact with the public, he said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2256. &lt;br /&gt;

  2262.    <title>Evans resigns following DUI</title>
  2263.    <link></link>
  2264.    <description>ATHENS, Ga. – Damon Evans has resigned as Georgia&#39;s athletic director less than a week after he was arrested on a DUI charge.&lt;br /&gt;
  2265. &lt;br /&gt;
  2266. School president Michael Adams made the announcement Monday following a conference call with the executive committee of the athletic association&#39;s board of directors.&lt;br /&gt;
  2267. &lt;br /&gt;
  2268. Adams says he&#39;ll have no further comment until Tuesday.&lt;br /&gt;
  2269. &lt;br /&gt;
  2270. Evans was arrested late Wednesday in Atlanta. He was charged with DUI and failure to maintain a lane. Also arrested with him was Courtney Fuhrmann, who was charged with disorderly conduct.&lt;br /&gt;
  2271. &lt;br /&gt;
  2272. Evans became the Southeastern Conference&#39;s first black athletic director in 2004.&lt;br /&gt;
  2273. &lt;br /&gt;
  2274. There was no immediate word on a replacement.&lt;br /&gt;
  2275. &lt;br /&gt;

  2281.    <title>Wal-Mart employee fired for smoking pot and sues</title>
  2282.    <link></link>
  2283.    <description>NEW YORK (Reuters) – A Michigan man has sued Wal-Mart Stores Inc for firing him after he tested positive for medical marijuana he was using legally to treat pain from an inoperable brain tumor and sinus cancer.&lt;br /&gt;
  2284. &lt;br /&gt;
  2285. Joseph Casias, 30, said he was fired late last year after five years of employment at a Wal-Mart store in his hometown of Battle Creek.&lt;br /&gt;
  2286. &lt;br /&gt;
  2287. According to a complaint filed Tuesday with the Calhoun County District Court, Casias began using marijuana on his oncologist&#39;s recommendation after Michigan voters had approved medical marijuana use in 2008.&lt;br /&gt;
  2288. &lt;br /&gt;
  2289. But the married father of two tested positive in a drug test given after he had twisted his knee at work, under a Wal-Mart policy requiring tests for all employees injured on the job, the complaint said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2290. &lt;br /&gt;
  2291. &quot;Joseph is an example of a patient for whom marijuana has had a life-changing positive effect,&quot; the complaint said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2292. &lt;br /&gt;
  2293. Wal-Mart, &quot;because it does not approve of the lawful medical treatment that relieves his pain, made him pay a stiff and unfair price,&quot; it added.&lt;br /&gt;
  2294. &lt;br /&gt;
  2295. Greg Rossiter, a Wal-Mart spokesman, said the world&#39;s largest retailer was &quot;sympathetic to Mr. Casias&#39; condition,&quot; but defended the actions taken.&lt;br /&gt;
  2296. &lt;br /&gt;
  2297. &quot;Like other companies, we have to consider the overall safety of our customers and our associates, including Mr. Casias, when making a difficult decision like this,&quot; he said. &quot;In this case, the doctor-prescribed treatment was not the relevant issue.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2298. &lt;br /&gt;
  2299. Wal-Mart is based in Bentonville, Arkansas.&lt;br /&gt;
  2300. &lt;br /&gt;
  2301. Hired as a grocery stocker in 2004, Casias rose to become inventory control manager, and was named the Battle Creek store&#39;s associate of the year in 2008, the complaint said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2302. &lt;br /&gt;
  2303. Fourteen U.S. states and the District of Columbia protect patients who use marijuana on doctors&#39; recommendations, according to the American Civil Liberties Union, which helped Casias bring his case.&lt;br /&gt;
  2304. &lt;br /&gt;
  2305. Still, within the last three years, state courts in California, Montana, Oregon and Washington have said employers need not accommodate users of medical marijuana, whose use remains illegal under federal law, court records show.&lt;br /&gt;
  2306. &lt;br /&gt;
  2307. Casias is seeking an order that he be rehired, compensatory and punitive damages and other remedies.&lt;br /&gt;
  2308. &lt;br /&gt;
  2309. The case is Casias v. Wal-Mart Stores Inc et al, Circuit Court of Calhoun County, Michigan.&lt;br /&gt;

  2318.    <title>UGA Athletic Director Evans arrested for DUI</title>
  2319.    <link></link>
  2320.    <description>University of Georgia athletics director Damon Evans was arrested on charges of driving under the influence late Wednesday night in Atlanta, according to Georgia State Police.&lt;br /&gt;
  2321. &lt;br /&gt;
  2322. According to Georgia State Patrol spokesman Gordy Wright, Evans, 40, was pulled at the intersection of Roswell Road and over by a Georgia state trooper just before midnight on Wednesday in a 2009 BMW after the officer viewed Evans driving erratically.&lt;br /&gt;
  2323. &lt;br /&gt;
  2324. The officer said he smelled alcohol and administered a field sobriety test, after which Evans was taken into custody at the Atlanta city jail on charges of driving under the influence and failure to maintain lane.&lt;br /&gt;
  2325. &lt;br /&gt;
  2326. “Once (the officer) got Evans stopped, during the course of that conversation the officer detected an odor of alcohol,” Wright said. “He administered a field sobriety test and determined that Evans was less safe to be operating a vehicle.”&lt;br /&gt;
  2327. &lt;br /&gt;
  2328. Evans reportedly refused a breath test at the jail.&lt;br /&gt;
  2329. &lt;br /&gt;
  2330. Another passenger was in Evans’ vehicle at the time of the arrest and, according to Wright, was also arrested. Further details were not yet available, Wright said. Because the arresting officer was part of a DUI task force that deals in a large volume of arrests, no police report was immediately available. Evans was released Thursday morning.&lt;br /&gt;
  2331. &lt;br /&gt;
  2332. Evans became athletics director at Georgia in 2004 and recently signed a new five-year contract that went into effect this week, raising his salary by $110,000 to $550,000 annually.&lt;br /&gt;
  2333. &lt;br /&gt;
  2334. Evans has commented several times about the numerous alcohol-related arrests that have plagued the Bulldogs’ football program during recent years. During home football games at Sanford Stadium, Evans appears in a public safety video warning fans not to drink and drive.&lt;br /&gt;
  2335. &lt;br /&gt;
  2336. As of Thursday afternoon, neither the school nor Evans had commented on the arrest, but a statement by the university is expected shortly.&lt;br /&gt;
  2337. &lt;br /&gt;

  2345.    <link></link>
  2346.    <description>They say you haven&#39;t made it big until you&#39;re on The Simpsons. Yet it seems it&#39;s not just Hollywood starlets who are gagging to be turned yellow for a Simpsons episode.&lt;br /&gt;
  2347. &lt;br /&gt;
  2348. A woman in China reckons she&#39;s found a real Homer Simpson lookalike - the catch being it&#39;s actually a vegetable.&lt;br /&gt;
  2349. &lt;br /&gt;
  2350. The disfigured spud-like plant has garnered a fanbase thanks to it&#39;s bulging eyes and potato-shaped head - which, we must agree, does make it look like Homer&#39;s long-lost brother or something.&lt;br /&gt;
  2351. &lt;br /&gt;
  2352. However the root - which comes from the fo-ti plant - is unlikely to join the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Russell Brand by getting a guest spot on the show.&lt;br /&gt;
  2353. &lt;br /&gt;
  2354. Instead it will be used to heal, as it is known to give patients vitality.&lt;br /&gt;
  2355. &lt;br /&gt;
  2356. Ming Huang, who discovered the Homer spud in southern China, told the Austrian Times: &quot;This root often emerges from the ground in the shape of a man.&lt;br /&gt;
  2357. &lt;br /&gt;
  2358. &quot;But this is the first time we&#39;ve seen one quite like this who had a proper face and features.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2359. &lt;br /&gt;

  2365.    <title>NCAA 11 - Manage your dynasties online</title>
  2366.    <link></link>
  2367.    <description>With &quot;NCAA Football 09,&quot; EA Sports introduced football fans to their version of an online dynasty, as gamers were able to play in a conference with up to 12 players. But all the school management had to be done through the console. This year, the team behind &quot;NCAA Football 11&quot; is finally taking the feature full-force to the Web, enabling gamers to log on to their dynasty anywhere they have access to the Internet, whether it&#39;s on a computer, an iPhone or even an iPad.&lt;br /&gt;
  2368. &lt;br /&gt;
  2369. That&#39;s right. Now, if you have an extra 20 minutes to kill at work (or if you just don&#39;t feel like working), you can check out your team online, schedule a game, try to recruit that strong-armed quarterback for next season and even write up a news story about how you destroyed Florida the night before and post the story to Facebook.&lt;br /&gt;
  2370. &lt;br /&gt;
  2371. Talk about a productivity killer. &quot;NCAA Football 11&quot; is set to cost corporate America millions of dollars in lost time just so Dan from Palo Alto can try to convince some virtual running back that Stanford is the best place for him to high-step down the field next season.&lt;br /&gt;
  2372. &lt;br /&gt;
  2373. But that&#39;s just the start of what EA has planned.&lt;br /&gt;
  2374. &lt;br /&gt;
  2375. Video highlights of a player&#39;s entire career? Team highlights that extend to 60 seasons? That&#39;s just the beginning.&lt;br /&gt;
  2376. &lt;br /&gt;
  2377. I recently had the chance to sit down with &quot;NCAA Football 11&quot; producers Ben Haumiller and Russ Kiniry to get the inside scoop on the game&#39;s new online dynasty features.&lt;br /&gt;

  2384.    <title>Questions for 2010</title>
  2385.    <link></link>
  2386.    <description>David Hale (the official UGA blogger) posed some questions to his readers this morning and I thought it would be worthy of a blog entry here, seeing as I haven&#39;t posted in a while.&lt;br /&gt;
  2387. &lt;br /&gt;
  2388. &lt;b&gt;1.) How much should Aaron Murray throw the football?&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2389. &lt;br /&gt;
  2390. I think Aaron should be given the chance to throw the ball a little more each game. Start him out against ULL throwing some easy screens and dump passes to get his completions confidence up. By the time we reach the UT game, he should be comfortable enough in the pocket to throw 10-15 times a game with a touchdown or two. Still relying heavily on the running backs, I&#39;d like to see more of a 65-35 split between the play calling, with running being the 65. I don&#39;t want Aaron to have to throw more than 20 times a game like Cox had to do so many times; the youngster shouldn&#39;t be required to win a game single-handedly, at least not yet.&lt;br /&gt;
  2391. &lt;br /&gt;
  2392. &lt;b&gt;2.) Who should get the carries out of the backfield?&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2393. &lt;br /&gt;
  2394. Ealey is more explosive as a runner. Caleb is more experienced and seems to be a little more dependable. Lets not forget Caleb played through a broken jaw last season and was still one of the top backs in the conference. It&#39;s impossible to keep them both off the field, so a 50-50 split will ultimately be necessary early in the season until one of the two establishes himself as the unchallenged starter.&lt;br /&gt;
  2395. &lt;br /&gt;
  2396. &lt;b&gt;3.) How do you handle the tight ends?&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2397. &lt;br /&gt;
  2398. You&#39;ve got to keep Orson on the field. I think his freshman highlights are enough to tell you why thats important. I don&#39;t think though, that there should be two pass catching TE&#39;s on the field at the same time. Put our best blocking TE in there with Orson, and let&#39;s see what kind of magic can happen. If that doesn&#39;t work, we can swap around the personnel until we get the right mix. We do have plenty of talented TE&#39;s; enough to split the position down into two sub positions.&lt;br /&gt;
  2399. &lt;br /&gt;
  2400. &lt;b&gt;4.) What happens if Trinton Sturdivant is healthy?&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2401. &lt;br /&gt;
  2402. If he&#39;s ready and healthy enough to play, I say let him push for the weakest spot on the line. Otherwise our line is already well established and any more tweaking could be fatal for Ealey and CK4.&lt;br /&gt;
  2403. &lt;br /&gt;
  2404. &lt;b&gt;5.) What do you do with Richard Samuel?&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2405. &lt;br /&gt;
  2406. I think because of the position change a redshirt is necessary. We need to save him so that he can come out next year ready to possibly start at his position. As right now, it doesn&#39;t look like he&#39;s going to make it to the field.&lt;br /&gt;
  2407. &lt;br /&gt;
  2408. &lt;b&gt;6.) Where does Darryl Gamble play?&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2409. &lt;br /&gt;
  2410. Both. He needs to start where he&#39;s most productive obviously, but if he has the ability to fill depth in other positions, let him do so as he thinks he can handle it.&lt;br /&gt;
  2411. &lt;br /&gt;
  2412. &lt;b&gt;7.) Branden Smith or Vance Cuff?&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2413. &lt;br /&gt;
  2414. Smith is to valuable regardless of where hes playing. I think Cuff won&#39;t have a chance anywhere else, so I would give him a shot at starting for now. Smith can be used on Special Teams and Offense, and utilizing him too much could force an injury or extreme fatigue.&lt;br /&gt;
  2415. &lt;br /&gt;
  2416. &lt;b&gt;8.) How much action does Smith see?&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2417. &lt;br /&gt;
  2418. I touched on this question with my answer to the last question. I think he still deserves to get some snaps on offense. You can look up his youtube highlights from last year running that reverse play with Carlton Thomas and there&#39;s just no denying his speed, vision, and instinct.&lt;br /&gt;
  2419. &lt;br /&gt;
  2420. &lt;b&gt;9.) Which freshmen should play?&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2421. &lt;br /&gt;
  2422. I don&#39;t want another Knowshon to spend 2 years on the field for us. I also don&#39;t want any one transferring because of a redshirt. I think at receiver, we simply can&#39;t afford the redshirts. All of the incoming freshman receivers need to be ready to possibly catch a pass from Murray come September. As for other positions, depending on the depth, if were stacked, I say redshirt them. I&#39;d probably leave the redshirts off the linemen as we will need them to get a little playing time this year to be ready to step in following the departure of multiple seniors from this years OL.&lt;br /&gt;
  2423. &lt;br /&gt;
  2424. &lt;b&gt;10.) What happens if Georgia loses to Florida?&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2425. &lt;br /&gt;
  2426. The fans are disappointed, again. That&#39;s really all. You can&#39;t base a coaches career on what he&#39;s done against one team. At least he has beaten the Gators once or twice, so we know it can be done. And with Saint Tebow out of the equation, our chances are better than ever. I don&#39;t believe winning or losing this game will have too much affect on Richt&#39;s coaching tenure with UGA.</description>

  2431.    <title>Dooley Junior&#39;s got work to do</title>
  2432.    <link></link>
  2433.    <description>&lt;b&gt;From &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;Get the Picture&lt;/a&gt;:&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2434. I’m not sure it’s sunk in yet how far down talent-wise Tennessee has found itself, but &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;this article&lt;/a&gt; paints a pretty grim picture for the next two seasons.&lt;br /&gt;
  2435. &lt;br /&gt;
  2436. First, UT’s senior class has some longtime contributors, but few standout players. The Vols have 13 seniors who have started a game, led by two potential All-SEC players: tight end Luke Stocker and defensive end Chris Walker – if he’s healthy.&lt;br /&gt;
  2437. &lt;br /&gt;
  2438. UT’s seniors boast competent receivers (Gerald Jones and Denarius Moore), solid linebackers (Nick Reveiz and LaMarcus Thompson) and starting defensive ends (Walker, Ben Martin and Gerald Williams).&lt;br /&gt;
  2439. &lt;br /&gt;
  2440. But after the seniors, the roster gets scary.&lt;br /&gt;
  2441. &lt;br /&gt;
  2442. UT only has one junior who has started a game at his current position: cornerback Art Evans.&lt;br /&gt;
  2443. &lt;br /&gt;
  2444. There are some brutal quotes from unnamed SEC assistant coaches that follow.&lt;br /&gt;
  2445. &lt;br /&gt;
  2446. Derek Dooley says he won’t dip into the JUCO ranks too deeply to fill holes, but to me that looks like it’ll be a hard temptation to avoid on his part.</description>

  2451.    <title>Cleopatra&#39;s lost palace found - underwater?</title>
  2452.    <link></link>
  2453.    <description>ALEXANDRIA, Egypt – Plunging into the waters off Alexandria Tuesday, divers explored the submerged ruins of a palace and temple complex from which Cleopatra ruled, swimming over heaps of limestone blocks hammered into the sea by earthquakes and tsunamis more than 1,600 years ago.&lt;br /&gt;
  2454. &lt;br /&gt;
  2455. The international team is painstakingly excavating one of the richest underwater archaeological sites in the world and retrieving stunning artifacts from the last dynasty to rule over ancient Egypt before the Roman Empire annexed it in 30 B.C.&lt;br /&gt;
  2456. &lt;br /&gt;
  2457. Using advanced technology, the team is surveying ancient Alexandria&#39;s Royal Quarters, encased deep below the harbor sediment, and confirming the accuracy of descriptions of the city left by Greek geographers and historians more than 2,000 years ago.&lt;br /&gt;
  2458. &lt;br /&gt;
  2459. Since the early 1990s, the topographical surveys have allowed the team, led by French underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio, to conquer the harbor&#39;s extremely poor visibility and excavate below the seabed. They are discovering everything from coins and everyday objects to colossal granite statues of Egypt&#39;s rulers and sunken temples dedicated to their gods.&lt;br /&gt;
  2460. &lt;br /&gt;
  2461. &quot;It&#39;s a unique site in the world,&quot; said Goddio, who has spent two decades searching for shipwrecks and lost cities below the seas. &lt;br /&gt;
  2462. &lt;br /&gt;
  2463. The finds from along the Egyptian coast will go on display at Philadelphia&#39;s Franklin Institute from June 5 to Jan. 2 in an exhibition titled &quot;Cleopatra: The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt.&quot; The exhibition will tour several other North American cities.&lt;br /&gt;
  2464. &lt;br /&gt;
  2465. Many archaeological sites have been destroyed by man, with statues cut or smashed to pieces. Alexandria&#39;s Royal Quarters — ports, a cape and islands full of temples, palaces and military outposts — simply slid into the sea after cataclysmic earthquakes in the fourth and eighth centuries. Goddio&#39;s team found it in 1996. Many of its treasures are completely intact, wrapped in sediment protecting them from the saltwater.&lt;br /&gt;
  2466. &lt;br /&gt;
  2467. &quot;It&#39;s as it was when it sank,&quot; said Ashraf Abdel-Raouf of Egypt&#39;s Supreme Council of Antiquities, who is part of the team.&lt;br /&gt;
  2468. &lt;br /&gt;
  2469. Tuesday&#39;s dive explored the sprawling palace and temple complex where Cleopatra, the last of Egypt&#39;s Greek-speaking Ptolemaic rulers, seduced the Roman general Mark Antony before they committed suicide upon their defeat by Octavian, the future Roman Emperor Augustus.&lt;br /&gt;
  2470. &lt;br /&gt;
  2471. Dives have taken Goddio and his team to some of the key scenes in the dramatic lives of the couple, including the Timonium, commissioned by Antony after his defeat as a place where he could retreat from the world, though he killed himself before it was completed.&lt;br /&gt;
  2472. &lt;br /&gt;
  2473. They also found a colossal stone head believed to be of Caesarion, son of Cleopatra and previous lover Julius Caesar, and two sphinxes, one of them probably representing Cleopatra&#39;s father, Ptolemy XII.&lt;br /&gt;
  2474. &lt;br /&gt;
  2475. Divers photographed a section of the seabed cleared of sediment with a powerful suction device. Their flashlights glowing in the green murk, the divers photographed ruins from a temple to Isis near Cleopatra&#39;s palace on the submerged island of Antirhodos.&lt;br /&gt;
  2476. &lt;br /&gt;
  2477. Among the massive limestone blocks toppled in the fourth century was a huge quartzite block with an engraving of a pharaoh. An inscription indicates it depicts Seti I, father of Ramses II.&lt;br /&gt;
  2478. &lt;br /&gt;
  2479. &quot;We&#39;ve found many pharaonic objects that were brought from Heliopolis, in what is now Cairo,&quot; said Abdel-Raouf. &quot;So, the Ptolemaic rulers re-used pharonic objects to construct their buildings.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2480. &lt;br /&gt;
  2481. On the boat&#39;s deck, researchers displayed some small recent finds: imported ceramics and local copies, a statuette of a pharaoh, bronze ritual vessels, amulets barely bigger than a fingernail, and small lead vessels tossed by the poor into the water or buried in the ground as devotions to gods.&lt;br /&gt;
  2482. &lt;br /&gt;
  2483. Alexandria&#39;s Eastern Harbor was abandoned after another earthquake, in the eighth century, and was left untouched as an open bay — apart from two 20th century breakwaters — while modern port construction went ahead in the Western Harbor. That has left the ancient Portus Magnus undisturbed below.&lt;br /&gt;
  2484. &lt;br /&gt;
  2485. &quot;We have this as an open field for archaeology,&quot; Goddio said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2486. &lt;br /&gt;
  2487. &lt;span class=&#39;small&#39;&gt;&lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;Link&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;</description>

  2499.    <title>Inmates use toilet sneak attack to flood court</title>
  2500.    <link></link>
  2501.    <description>SAN FRANCISCO -- As much as 2 inches of raw sewage flooded five courtrooms at the San Francisco Hall of Justice on Friday after jail inmates flushed a bedsheet and two jumpsuits down toilets, officials said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2502. &lt;br /&gt;
  2503. Eileen Hirst, spokeswoman for the Sheriff&#39;s Department, said the courtroom where most felony defendants are arraigned was among those flooded on the second and third floors of the building at 850 Bryant St.&lt;br /&gt;
  2504. &lt;br /&gt;
  2505. She said the mess was detected at 7 p.m. Thursday. Workers mopped up the sewage by midnight, but when court staffers came to work Friday morning, the flooding had returned.&lt;br /&gt;
  2506. &lt;br /&gt;
  2507. Jason Hinson, the building manager for the city, said that when a plumber snaked out the jammed sewer line, he came up with the sheet and two orange jail jumpsuits.&lt;br /&gt;
  2508. &lt;br /&gt;
  2509. Inmates &quot;flush it repeatedly until it just sucks it down,&quot; Hinson said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2510. &lt;br /&gt;
  2511. Michael Yuen, a court official, said judges in the flooded courtrooms were doubling up in other occupied courts and hearing cases during scheduled breaks.&lt;br /&gt;
  2512. &lt;br /&gt;
  2513. He said the five courtrooms will be closed at least until Monday so workers can conduct biohazard tests on carpets.&lt;br /&gt;
  2514. &lt;br /&gt;
  2515. &quot;If we have to replace the carpets, that&#39;s what we are going to have to do,&quot; Yuen said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2516. &lt;br /&gt;
  2517. Hirst said the bedsheet and jumpsuits apparently were flushed in an area shared by several prisoners in the seventh-floor jail.&lt;br /&gt;
  2518. &lt;br /&gt;
  2519. &quot;It hasn&#39;t happened in many years,&quot; Hirst said. She said the last major problem occurred in the mid-1990s and prompted the city to purchase grinders, known as &quot;muffin monsters,&quot; that are installed on sewage pipes.&lt;br /&gt;
  2520. &lt;br /&gt;
  2521. The city plans to expedite the installation of four more of the devices - at a cost of $100,000 apiece - in light of the incident. One of them will be placed on the line that was clogged, Hinson said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2522. &lt;br /&gt;
  2523. Inmate-caused plumbing problems are not unique to the San Francisco jail. In 2007, a waste management agency billed San Mateo County $700,000 for damage to a pumping station caused by jail uniforms, sheets and other items being flushed down toilets at the Redwood City jail.&lt;br /&gt;

  2534.    <title>Free &quot;Pope Condoms&quot; - Get em while they last</title>
  2535.    <link></link>
  2536.    <description>AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – A Dutch sex shop will be giving away 2,000 &quot;Pope condoms&quot; this weekend in a dig at the Roman Catholic Church. De Condoomfabriek (The Condom Factory) said it wanted to make a point about sexually transmitted diseases, unwanted pregnancies and the Vatican&#39;s opposition to contraceptives.&lt;br /&gt;
  2537. &lt;br /&gt;
  2538. The condom wrapper carries the image of a papal figure with an unmistakable general likeness to Pope Benedict, though the figure&#39;s face is removed. It bears the words &quot;I SAID NO! We say YES!&quot; framing the papal image.&lt;br /&gt;
  2539. &lt;br /&gt;
  2540. The suggestion of a &quot;pope condom&quot; caused a diplomatic row last month when Britain&#39;s Foreign Office was forced to apologize for a memorandum by a civil servant that suggested Benedict launch a papal-brand condom on his pending visit to the UK.&lt;br /&gt;

  2549.    <title>Aaron Murray: High School Star</title>
  2550.    <link></link>
  2551.    <description>He hasn&#39;t taken a snap in a game yet for the Georgia Bulldogs but Aaron Murray has the potential to be a true franchise star. He&#39;s been named the starter after his spring performance and in light of the other two recent happenings: Logan Gray wanting playing time at receiver and Zach Mettenberger being dismissed from the team. &lt;br /&gt;
  2552. &lt;br /&gt;
  2553. All of the pieces fell into place and he will now be taking the first snap against ULL to open the 2010 season. Can he or can he not do a better job than 5 year senior and 2009 first year starter Joe Cox?&lt;br /&gt;

  2564.    <title>Mark Richt on the Hot Seat?</title>
  2565.    <link></link>
  2566.    <description>Apparently, there&#39;s some rumors created outside our great state of Georgia that our head coach is on the &quot;hot seat&quot;. I of course am with 70%+ of the fan base when I say I overwhelmingly want Richt as our head coach. The guy has not had a loosing season as UGA&#39;s head coach since he arrived back in 2000. The 2010 season will be his 10th season and he&#39;s never won less than 8 games in a season. A bowl game every year. Let&#39;s not forget hes only lost like 4 out of conference games as well. 2 SEC East championships, a SEC championship, and a sugar bowl win.&lt;br /&gt;
  2567. &lt;br /&gt;
  2568. The first whistle of the 2010 college football season hasn’t even been blown yet and we are already looking at several coaches whose futures could be in jeopardy. Today is part two of a five-part series on college football coaches on the Hot Seat. Part I looked at Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez. Now on to Part II: Mark Richt, Georgia&lt;br /&gt;
  2569. &lt;br /&gt;
  2570. It seems almost every season, Richt’s name comes up as being on the hot seat. Funny considering since taking over the Georgia program in 2001, the Bulldogs have won 77 percent of their games — 90-27 — including going 50-22 in the Southeastern Conference over that same stretch of games.&lt;br /&gt;
  2571. &lt;br /&gt;
  2572. He’s taken the Bulldogs to a bowl game every year, putting together a 7-2 record during that time.&lt;br /&gt;
  2573. &lt;br /&gt;
  2574. So why does Richt face the preverbal firing squad every season?&lt;br /&gt;
  2575. &lt;br /&gt;
  2576. Two words: National Championship. It’s been 30 years since the Bulldogs won their last title and Georgia fans are getting restless. Watching Florida, LSU, and Alabama win the past four BCS titles hasn’t probably helped either. Or the fact that Georgia has gone 2-6 against the Gators during Richt’s tenure.&lt;br /&gt;
  2577. &lt;br /&gt;
  2578. But problems have dogged the Bulldogs program in recent years.&lt;br /&gt;
  2579. &lt;br /&gt;
  2580. In the offseason, Richt decided to shake up his staff, firing defensive coordinator Willie Martinez and two other assistants. The Bulldogs went after several big-name coordinators eventually settling on Todd Grantham, an NFL coordinator with the Dallas Cowboys.&lt;br /&gt;
  2581. &lt;br /&gt;
  2582. Then the program was hit with a string of arrests culminating with starting quarterback Zach Mettenberger’s arrest outside of a bar in Valdosta, Georgia. Richt kicked the redshirt freshman off the team leaving redshirt freshman Aaron Murray and junior Logan Gray to fill in on the depth chart. Gray then hinted he might transfer.&lt;br /&gt;
  2583. &lt;br /&gt;
  2584. Whomever starts at quarterback for the Bulldogs will have a challenging schedule. Games against Arkansas, Florida, Auburn and the season finale against Georgia Tech could present Richt with an 8-4 season. Will Georgia fans put up with that?&lt;br /&gt;
  2585. &lt;br /&gt;
  2586. &lt;span class=&#39;small&#39;&gt;&lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;Link&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;</description>

  2600.    <title>Revised Preseason Top 25</title>
  2601.    <link></link>
  2602.    <description>Mark Schlabach gives his revised version in what he describes accurately as his &quot;way too early&quot; preseason college football top 25. Here are some key teams that I follow that I spotted, in order. I also added the video if anyone wants to watch that, but its really just a vocal version of what you&#39;ll read in my highlights below. &lt;br /&gt;
  2603. &lt;br /&gt;
  2604. No sign of Tennessee in there yet, but I&#39;m sure when dooley suprises the critics with a few early wins over key out of conference opponents that will change. Watching the video I noticed its slightly different than the revised version in Mark&#39;s post. I believe his post is more up to date.&lt;br /&gt;
  2605. &lt;br /&gt;
  2606. &lt;center&gt;&lt;object width=&quot;384&quot; height=&quot;216&quot; type=&quot;application/x-shockwave-flash&quot; id=&quot;ESPN_VIDEO&quot; data=&quot;; allowScriptAccess=&quot;always&quot; allowNetworking=&quot;all&quot;&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;movie&quot; value=&quot;; /&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;allowFullScreen&quot; value=&quot;true&quot;/&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;wmode&quot; value=&quot;opaque&quot;/&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;allowScriptAccess&quot; value=&quot;always&quot;/&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;allowNetworking&quot; value=&quot;all&quot;/&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;flashVars&quot; value=&quot;id=5159726&quot;/&gt;&lt;/object&gt;&lt;/center&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2607. &lt;br /&gt;
  2608. &lt;b&gt;1. Alabama Crimson Tide &lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2609. The defending BCS national champions have to replace seven players who were selected in the NFL draft, including linebacker Rolando McClain and cornerback Kareem Jackson, who were picked in the first round. But linebacker Donta Hightower, who is coming back from a surgically repaired knee, and defensive tackle Marcel Dareus will help Bama fill several holes on defense. The offense will again be built around reigning Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson, the best running back duo in the country. Quarterback Greg McElroy, who hasn&#39;t lost a game as a starter since the eighth grade, should be better in his second full season as the Tide&#39;s starter.&lt;br /&gt;
  2610. &lt;br /&gt;
  2611. &lt;b&gt;8. Florida Gators&lt;/b&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  2612. Perhaps no team will undergo more of a makeover than the Gators, who have to replace nine players who were selected in the NFL draft, including record-setting quarterback Tim Tebow and cornerback Joe Haden. But coach Urban Meyer has assembled so much talent in Gainesville that it&#39;s impossible to believe the Gators will slip very far. Quarterback John Brantley gave Florida fans plenty of hope in the spring game, completing 15 of 19 passes for 201 yards with two touchdowns. If receivers Deonte Thompson, Carl Moore and Andre Debose can improve, the passing game might be more potent than it was with Tebow directing the show. Finding a No. 1 tailback -- and a runner who can pound defenses -- remains the No. 1 priority heading into the preseason.&lt;br /&gt;
  2613. &lt;br /&gt;
  2614. &lt;b&gt;14. Arkansas Razorbacks &lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2615. The Razorbacks are facing sky-high expectations because of quarterback Ryan Mallett&#39;s right arm and coach Bobby Petrino&#39;s high-scoring offense. But if the Hogs are going to improve on last season&#39;s 8-5 finish, they have to get much better on defense. Arkansas ranked last in the SEC and 99th nationally against the pass and allowed 22 touchdown passes. Mallett missed the spring while recovering from a broken bone in his left foot, but he&#39;ll enter the season as a potential Heisman Trophy candidate. The Hogs play a relatively soft nonconference schedule (they play Texas A&amp;M in Arlington, Texas), but they&#39;ll face SEC heavyweights Alabama, Ole Miss and LSU at home.&lt;br /&gt;
  2616. &lt;br /&gt;
  2617. &lt;b&gt;15. USC Trojans&lt;/b&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  2618. Were the early signs of a crumbling dynasty the real reason Pete Carroll left USC for the Seattle Seahawks? We&#39;ll begin to find out in new coach Lane Kiffin&#39;s first season, as the Trojans try to rebound from a disappointing 9-4 finish in 2009. Quarterback Matt Barkley lost weight during the offseason, which he hopes will make him more mobile and confident throwing on the run. Ronald Johnson and Brice Butler are good enough to replace departed star receiver Damian Williams, but the offensive line has to play better. The entire secondary must be replaced, but USC might have one of the country&#39;s best defensive fronts. The Trojans will play nonconference road games at Hawaii and Minnesota and will play Pac-10 road games at Stanford, Oregon State and Arizona.&lt;br /&gt;
  2619. &lt;br /&gt;
  2620. &lt;b&gt;16. Florida State Seminoles &lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2621. If the Seminoles are going to be better in Jimbo Fisher&#39;s first season as head coach, they&#39;ll have to improve on defense after allowing 30 points or more five times in 2009. Quarterback Christian Ponder, who underwent shoulder surgery in November, proved to be a quick healer this spring. He completed 16 of 34 passes for 266 yards with two touchdowns in the spring game. With Ponder coming back, the Seminoles might have the ACC&#39;s most explosive offense in 2010. Former Arizona defensive coordinator Mark Stoops takes over FSU&#39;s porous unit, and he&#39;ll rely on young players such as linebacker Jeff Luc and cornerback Greg Reid to get better. The Seminoles play an arduous schedule, including road games at Oklahoma and Miami and home games against Florida and BYU.&lt;br /&gt;
  2622. &lt;br /&gt;
  2623. &lt;b&gt;17. LSU Tigers&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2624. LSU coach Les Miles won a BCS national championship in 2007 and led the Tigers to 51 victories in five seasons. But after losing nine games the past two seasons combined, Miles might be feeling a little heat on the bayou. The Tigers went 9-4 a year ago but never seemed to get the most out of their talent. LSU fans can&#39;t be encouraged that quarterback Jordan Jefferson didn&#39;t seem to improve during spring practice -- so much so that Miles proclaimed that 2008 starter Jarrett Lee was pushing Jefferson for the starting job. One thing is clear: LSU needs to get Russell Shepard more involved on offense, which it plans to do now that he has moved from quarterback to receiver. There&#39;s too much talent at LSU for the Tigers to fall far behind Alabama and Florida, but they seem to be slipping in the SEC.&lt;br /&gt;
  2625. &lt;br /&gt;
  2626. &lt;b&gt;20. Georgia Bulldogs&lt;/b&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  2627. Georgia&#39;s recipe for 2010: keep quarterback Aaron Murray healthy and play better defense. Georgia might go into the season without a proven backup quarterback if junior Logan Gray decides to transfer. Murray beat out Gray and freshman Zach Mettenberger for the starting job before Mettenberger was dismissed from the team after his arrest during spring break. Georgia figures to rely on its running game to take the pressure off Murray, and it needs to find a consistent receiver to complement A.J. Green. The defense will be more aggressive in new coordinator Todd Grantham&#39;s 3-4 scheme, but the Dawgs have to find more defensive linemen. Cornerback Vance Cuff was a pleasant surprise during spring practice, easing Grantham&#39;s concerns about the secondary. With the SEC&#39;s best punter and kicker coming back, Georgia could be a surprise depending on how quickly Murray gets comfortable at quarterback.&lt;br /&gt;
  2628. &lt;br /&gt;
  2629. &lt;b&gt;22. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets &lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2630. Coach Paul Johnson has never had problems plugging players into his triple-option spread offense. He did it every season as Navy&#39;s coach, and he&#39;ll try to do it again this season at Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets lost receiver Demaryius Thomas and defensive end Derrick Morgan, a pair of NFL first-round picks, and star running back Jonathan Dwyer. But Johnson is confident his offense won&#39;t slip much with quarterback Josh Nesbitt coming back. The defense should get better under new defensive coordinator Al Groh, the former Virginia coach. Georgia Tech&#39;s schedule is more difficult than last season&#39;s -- the Yellow Jackets play road games at Kansas, Clemson, Virginia Tech and Georgia -- but it is capable of winning a second consecutive ACC title.</description>

  2635.    <title>Logan Gray: Bulldog for Life</title>
  2636.    <link></link>
  2637.    <description>Logan Gray wants to play. But he wants to be a Georgia Bulldog even more.&lt;br /&gt;
  2638. &lt;br /&gt;
  2639. While the possibility remains that junior quarterback will get an opportunity to do both, he announced Wednesday that despite reservations about his role on the team, he&#39;s staying in Athens for the remainder of his career.&lt;br /&gt;
  2640. &lt;br /&gt;
  2641. &quot;I have decided to stay at the University of Georgia because I truly do love being a Georgia Bulldog,&quot; Gray said in a statement released by the school. &quot;I want to be a part of this team getting back to the SEC Championship game and winning it.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2642. &lt;br /&gt;
  2643. Gray met with head coach Mark Richt last month to discuss a possible transfer after he finished spring practice as the team&#39;s No. 2 quarterback for the second consecutive season. Gray was hoping for a bigger role on the team and had openly considered a position change to wide receiver as far back as November.&lt;br /&gt;
  2644. &lt;br /&gt;
  2645. After their initial meeting, Richt said Gray would weigh his options and said that Georgia&#39;s coaches supported any decision Gray made, including changing positions.&lt;br /&gt;
  2646. &lt;br /&gt;
  2647. &quot;He’s trying to decide what he wants to do – whether he wants to stay here, and if he stays, what position he wants to play and all that kind of stuff,&quot; Richt said at the time. &quot;If he wants to be at Georgia, I’ll work with him on what position he plays.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2648. &lt;br /&gt;
  2649. It appears that was among the deciding factors in Gray&#39;s decision to remain with the Bulldogs, and he said Wednesday he would be a part of Georgia&#39;s receiving corps in 2010 -- at least part-time.&lt;br /&gt;
  2650. &lt;br /&gt;
  2651. &quot;I&#39;m also looking forward to getting some work at receiver and am going to work hard to make the best out of my opportunity at this position as well,&quot; Gray said. &quot;I appreciate Coach (Mark) Richt&#39;s patience while I made this decision and his helpful advice. Now, I want to put all of this behind me and focus on getting to work on preparations for next season at UGA.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2652. &lt;br /&gt;
  2653. Gray remains the team&#39;s No. 2 quarterback for now, with freshman Hutson Mason set to arrive on campus next month. While Gray could remain in the hunt in what Richt calls an open competition at quarterback -- with redshirt freshman Aaron Murray leading the way -- he would also be a welcome addition on a depth chart at receiver that includes just seven scholarship players and only three with more than 20 career receptions.&lt;br /&gt;
  2654. &lt;br /&gt;
  2655. &quot;I&#39;m extremely pleased that Logan has decided to remain a Bulldog,&quot; Richt said. &quot;He&#39;s an outstanding player and a great person as well. We&#39;re fortunate to have him and he¹ll be an important part of our team over the next two years.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;

  2702.    <link></link>
  2703.    <description>High-school highlights of UGA&#39;s committed top QB in the nation, Christian LeMay. Note: you&#39;ll notice he played for the Bulldogs in high school and their home uniforms look eerily similar to ours. This guy can fit the ball into some tight places and a few of those highlights show how hard he throws the ball; especially one of the later ones where he pump fakes then throws deep down the middle for the game winning touchdown. Let&#39;s not fail to mention the feet on that kid, too. Fast like a speed back or a corner. &lt;br /&gt;

  2711.    <title>Mettenberger: What Happened</title>
  2712.    <link></link>
  2713.    <description>Former University of Georgia quarterback Zach Mettenberger pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of misdemeanor sexual battery stemming from a March 7 incident in a bar in Remerton, Ga., near Valdosta.&lt;br /&gt;
  2714. &lt;br /&gt;
  2715. Mettenberger entered the plea in Lowndes County Superior Court and was sentenced under the Georgia First Offender Act to 12 months probation and 80 hours of community service. He also was fined $2,000 and banished from Valdosta for a year.&lt;br /&gt;
  2716. &lt;br /&gt;
  2717. Southern Judicial Circuit District Attorney J. David Miller said the sexual battery charges “were the result of Mettenberger grabbing the breasts and touching the buttocks” of a 20-year-old female Valdosta State University student in the bar.&lt;br /&gt;
  2718. &lt;br /&gt;
  2719. Mettenberger, kicked off the Georgia team on April 18, originally was arrested outside the bar on five other misdemeanor charges. Miller said those charges — underage possession of alcohol, disorderly conduct, obstruction and two counts of possessing false identification -– were dismissed as part of the negotiated plea to the more serious charge that surfaced during the subsequent investigation.&lt;br /&gt;
  2720. &lt;br /&gt;
  2721. Miller said the Remerton Police Department and the victim “were satisfied with this resolution.” As part of the sentence, Mettenberger is forbidden from having direct or indirect contact with the victim. He also is forbidden from being any place where alcoholic beverages are sold during the term of his probation.&lt;br /&gt;
  2722. &lt;br /&gt;
  2723. Miller said the misdemeanor offense to which Mettenberger pleaded guilty will not require him to register as a sex offender.&lt;br /&gt;
  2724. &lt;br /&gt;
  2725. Mettenberger, in a written statement released through his Valdosta attorney, said he “took full responsibility” for his actions.&lt;br /&gt;
  2726. &lt;br /&gt;
  2727. “I first want to apologize to the young lady my actions most directly affected, and I hope that by me accepting responsibility for my actions that she can move on with her life,” Mettenberger said in the statement.&lt;br /&gt;
  2728. &lt;br /&gt;
  2729. “I would also like to apologize to my family, friends, teammates, the coaching staff and the University of Georgia. Though it was very uncharacteristic of me to act the way I did, I still accept full responsibility for this event. I deeply regret my actions of that night and can assure that these actions will never happen again. I intend to do everything in my power to restore my image and rebuild the trust people had in me before.”&lt;br /&gt;
  2730. &lt;br /&gt;
  2731. Mettenberger, 18, also expressed hope that he may get “a second chance” to play football at another college. “I hope to have another opportunity to demonstrate to everyone that I have learned a tremendously hard lesson and will make the most of any other opportunity,” he said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2732. &lt;br /&gt;
  2733. Mettenberger’s attorney, Zachary R. Cowart, said his client would not comment beyond the statement. “He has accepted full responsibility for his actions and has suffered public humiliation and lost the ability to play football for the University of Georgia,” Cowart said in an e-mail.&lt;br /&gt;
  2734. &lt;br /&gt;
  2735. Miller said that under the First Offender Act, Mettenberger’s record will be cleared if he successfully completes probation.&lt;br /&gt;
  2736. &lt;br /&gt;
  2737. Mettenberger, a graduate of Oconee County High School, was kicked off the Georgia team before playing in a game for the Bulldogs. He was redshirted as a freshman last fall and was in a three-way competition for the starting quarterback job in spring practice, which concluded on April 10, eight days before Mettenberger was tossed from the team for what coach Mark Richt called a violation of team rules.&lt;br /&gt;

  2746.    <title>Nation&#39;s top QB LeMay reflects on picking Georgia</title>
  2747.    <link></link>
  2748.    <description>As a kid, Christian LeMay kept a secret when he lived in Gainesville, Fla.--he really liked the Georgia Bulldogs.&lt;br /&gt;
  2749. &lt;br /&gt;
  2750. That doesn&#39;t mean he didn&#39;t like the hometown Florida Gators--the program his father was a chaplain for as recently as five years ago, but the Bulldogs were also one of his favorites.&lt;br /&gt;
  2751. &lt;br /&gt;
  2752. LeMay lives in the Charlotte (N.C.) area now and plays for Butler (Matthews, N.C.).&lt;br /&gt;
  2753. &lt;br /&gt;
  2754. &quot;I actually liked Georgia a lot growing up; it was one of my dream schools to be offered by,&quot; LeMay told Sporting News over the weekend after announcing his intention to sign with Georgia in February. &quot;I kind of kept that under wraps because I lived in Gainesville, but I liked watching David Greene and D.J. Shockley play quarterback there in the late 1990s and early 2000s.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2755. &lt;br /&gt;
  2756. LeMay, who stands 6-foot-2, 190 pounds, wanted to play in more of a pro-style offense, too. Georgia fit that mold. The Bulldogs beat out Texas A&amp;M and Clemson for LeMay&#39;s final decision, while Notre Dame and Auburn were also in the top five. LSU, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee and Miami had been in his top 10 before being trimmed a few weeks ago.&lt;br /&gt;
  2757. &lt;br /&gt;
  2758. With so many SEC schools in his original top 10, it may have seemed he was locked in to playing in the conference.&lt;br /&gt;
  2759. &lt;br /&gt;
  2760. Not so, he told Sporting News.&lt;br /&gt;
  2761. &lt;br /&gt;
  2762. &quot;It really didn&#39;t matter about the conference,&quot; LeMay said. &quot;What mattered was how I fit in with the system and how I fit in with the team and players. I was very high on Georgia before, playing in the SEC was just an added bonus to it.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2763. &lt;br /&gt;
  2764. LeMay denied that the recent release of backup quarterback Zach Mettenberger from his scholarship and Georgia&#39;s thin depth chart at the position in general may have sealed to deal. He said that had nothing to do with his decision.&lt;br /&gt;
  2765. &lt;br /&gt;
  2766. &quot;I just had it in my heart that this is where I wanted to be; I just was excited to get it off my chest,&quot; LeMay said. &quot;A lot of guys have texted me since they found out where I was going. I&#39;ve told them they need to come play with me or they can choose to have a hard time stopping me.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2767. &lt;br /&gt;
  2768. One recruiting target of LeMay&#39;s is blue-chip WR Charone Peake out of Dorman, S.C. Georgia is listed in Peake&#39;s top three, along with nearby Clemson and Florida.&lt;br /&gt;
  2769. &lt;br /&gt;
  2770. LeMay said he&#39;ll get to work immediately working on prospects like Peake, thus the reason he made the early decision.&lt;br /&gt;

  2778.    <title>UGA: Orange Bowl bound in 2011</title>
  2779.    <link></link>
  2780.    <description>Courtesy to &lt;a href=&#39;; target=&#39;_blank&#39;&gt;Get the Picture&lt;/a&gt; for this info, I read that has picked Georgia (yes, them down but not out Georgia Bulldogs) to play in the BCS Orange Bowl! In a way too early projection (and I fear, a curse), see it for yourselves:&lt;br /&gt;
  2781. &lt;br /&gt;
  2782. &lt;b&gt;Orange Bowl: &lt;/b&gt;January 3, 2011 in Miami, FL at 8:00 pm on ABC&lt;br /&gt;
  2783. &lt;i&gt;ACC No. 1 vs. BCS at-large&lt;/i&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2784. &lt;u&gt;Way Too Early Projection:&lt;/u&gt; Virginia Tech vs. &lt;b&gt;Georgia&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2785. &lt;br /&gt;
  2786. WHY? Georgia has the right schedule and the returning talent to slip through to win the East over a rebuilding Florida. The Orange would snap up the Dawgs getting the first pick of at-large teams (after the Rose). Virginia Tech will most likely survive the ACC wars to get to Miami for the third time in four years.&lt;br /&gt;

  2794.    <link></link>
  2795.    <description>Found this video while reading around on various UGA blogs. The techies are really ... cute; to say the least. They beat us once in a ten year span (losing the most recent one, most notably when they were a &quot;top 15&quot; team in the country); and they come out with this video to celebrate. You wonder why everyone makes fun of you tech fans, including your own football players? Here&#39;s why:&lt;br /&gt;

  2815.    <title>Stafford: Epic Rookie Performance (NFL)</title>
  2816.    <link></link>
  2817.    <description>Check out this video of an epic performance by Matthew Stafford, in his first year as an NFL quarterback with the Detroit Lions, fresh outta Athens. This video isn&#39;t a game style video, its actually from the coaches and players perspective; almost as if they have a camera right down there on the field that follows Matt around.&lt;br /&gt;
  2818. &lt;br /&gt;
  2819. Matthew Stafford threw for 422 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie in an epic win vs the Cleveland Browns. Returning to the game after suffering an injury to his non-throwing shoulder to throw the game-winning touchdown. Pay attention, you&#39;ll see an old college teammate of Stafford&#39;s (Mohammed Massaquoi) catch a huge touchdown with the opposing offense. Ironic eh?&lt;br /&gt;

  2826.    <title>Joe Cox - Best SEC QB from &#39;09?</title>
  2827.    <link></link>
  2828.    <description>It&#39;s definitely far fetched to say that &lt;strong&gt;Joe Cox&lt;/strong&gt; was the best QB in the SEC from the 09 season. You can plainly see by his post-season stats and what he did in games that he was not a great QB. But the question is, was he the best in our conference? Did he even compete with the rest of them?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;After a year of predominantly mediocre play by the quarterbacks of our conference, Joe actually comes out on top. Check it out, according to his rating at the end of the season, HE IS:  &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;table border=&quot;0&quot; class=&quot;leaders&quot;&gt;&lt;tbody&gt;&lt;tr&gt;&lt;th class=&quot;player-name&quot;

    &lt;th class=&quot;year&quot; scope=&quot;col&quot;&gt;&lt;font size=&quot;2&quot;&gt;Team&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/th&gt;     &lt;th class=&quot;position&quot; scope=&quot;col&quot;&gt;&lt;font size=&quot;2&quot;&gt;Yr&lt;/font&gt;&lt;font size=&quot;2&quot;&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/th&gt;     &lt;th class=&quot;g&quot; scope=&quot;col&quot;&gt;&lt;font size=&quot;2&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/th&gt;     &lt;th class=&quot;pass-att&quot; scope=&quot;col&quot;&gt;&lt;font size=&quot;2&quot;&gt;G&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/th&gt;

  2833.    <title>Legalizing pot may kill buzz in California enclave</title>
  2834.    <link></link>
  2835.    <description>ARCATA, California (Reuters) – Below the perpetual fog that shrouds the redwood groves, green hills and rocky coastline of remote Humboldt County thrives a lucrative but hush-hush industry -- marijuana.&lt;br /&gt;
  2836. &lt;br /&gt;
  2837. Pot pays the bills in this Northern California enclave, home to hippies and good old boys alike who espouse the weed&#39;s curative and economic benefits. The expensive trucks, bustling restaurants, escalating rents and plentiful wads of cash all point to profitable pot cultivation in Humboldt.&lt;br /&gt;
  2838. &lt;br /&gt;
  2839. Now, a state voter initiative on the November ballot that would make California the first U.S. state to legalize and tax this cash crop has locals jittery about losing their dominant market position.&lt;br /&gt;
  2840. &lt;br /&gt;
  2841. &quot;We&#39;ve always had a cannabis tinge to our culture,&quot; said Kevin Hoover, editor of weekly newspaper The Arcata Eye. &quot;What we have now is a very entrenched industry that&#39;s making a lot of money off the fact that it&#39;s illegal.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2842. &lt;br /&gt;
  2843. Starting in the 1960&#39;s, free-thinkers wanting to get away from it all moved to the area long dominated by the lumber and fishing industries. Marijuana cultivation supported these new residents and newly unemployed blue-collar workers who watched the demise of Humboldt&#39;s traditional manufacturing base.&lt;br /&gt;
  2844. &lt;br /&gt;
  2845. Although the underground pot economy makes for poor statistics, Beth Wilson, an associate professor of economics at Humboldt State University, estimates the area&#39;s annual income from marijuana at about $500 million.&lt;br /&gt;
  2846. &lt;br /&gt;
  2847. The &quot;multiplier effect&quot; of that money circulated to support local businesses -- garden centers do a brisk business and the town of Arcata&#39;s sushi restaurant is always packed -- could push that figure to $1 billion annually, she said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2848. &lt;br /&gt;
  2849. &quot;It&#39;s not negligible,&quot; said Wilson.&lt;br /&gt;
  2850. &lt;br /&gt;
  2851. PURPLE KUSH PLEASE&lt;br /&gt;
  2852. &lt;br /&gt;
  2853. Everyone knows someone who grows pot. In the north county, indoor growing that fetches prices of over $3,000 per pound is popular, while in the south, marijuana is planted outdoors.&lt;br /&gt;
  2854. &lt;br /&gt;
  2855. The industry has also fueled an itinerant labor force of &quot;trimmers&quot; who make $20 per hour or more snipping the leaves from the more potent dried buds of the plant.&lt;br /&gt;
  2856. &lt;br /&gt;
  2857. &quot;This vote has become a conflict of interest,&quot; said Deniz Farnell, 31, an Arcata hotel worker, who, like the vast majority of locals, supports decriminalizing pot smoking.&lt;br /&gt;
  2858. &lt;br /&gt;
  2859. &quot;Do you vote for the good of the state or for the next-door neighbor who&#39;s a mom who&#39;s supplementing her income through trimming? When that law passes, she&#39;ll be on food stamps.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2860. &lt;br /&gt;
  2861. That is because legalizing marijuana could turn a cottage industry into Pot Inc. Locals fear big tobacco will swoop in and drive down prices, supplying millions of new, legal pot smokers with &quot;Marlboro Green.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2862. &lt;br /&gt;
  2863. Rumors abound in Arcata that the tobacco giants have already snatched up land and copyrights to the most popular names of weed strains, whether Purple Kush, Big Bud, Headband, Trainwreck or L.A. Confidential.&lt;br /&gt;
  2864. &lt;br /&gt;
  2865. But at least one big tobacco company, Reynolds American, says it has no plans to move in. &quot;Everything else would be purely rumors and speculation,&quot; said spokesman David Howard.&lt;br /&gt;
  2866. &lt;br /&gt;
  2867. &quot;We better hope it doesn&#39;t become legal because this area is going to become a ghost town,&quot; one reader wrote to the North Coast Journal in a response to a recent article on how to stay afloat in the post-illegal pot era.&lt;br /&gt;
  2868. &lt;br /&gt;
  2869. The Tax Cannabis campaign has gained traction in the cash-strapped state of California, historically at the forefront of contentious social issues. It led the nation in 1996 by approving the use of cannabis for medical purposes.&lt;br /&gt;
  2870. &lt;br /&gt;
  2871. An April 2009 Field Poll showed 56 percent of state voters supported legalizing pot for social use and taxing the sales.&lt;br /&gt;
  2872. &lt;br /&gt;
  2873. On a statewide level, that could bring in $1.4 billion per year, according to the office that regulates sales tax.&lt;br /&gt;
  2874. &lt;br /&gt;
  2875. &quot;Think of all the pot smokers out there,&quot; said a mid-30s mom who has grown for six years, plans to enter law school, and favors legalization. &quot;They can bail California out of its deficit. Smoke more pot!&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2876. &lt;br /&gt;
  2877. Under the initiative, possession and cultivation of small amounts of pot for personal use would be legal for those 21 and over. The measure allows municipalities to determine how to tax and regulate the drug -- with monies going to local governments -- and does not affect medical marijuana laws.&lt;br /&gt;
  2878. &lt;br /&gt;
  2879. Pot is illegal under U.S. law but the Obama administration halted raids on medical marijuana clinics last year. It is unclear how state legalization would be affected by federal law, and whether the U.S. government would interfere.&lt;br /&gt;
  2880. &lt;br /&gt;
  2882. &lt;br /&gt;
  2883. Those who favor legalization predict it could curtail the seamier side of the industry. The profusion of &quot;grow houses,&quot; gutted to accommodate indoor greenhouses, have pushed up rental prices, while robberies of cash and plants are on the rise.&lt;br /&gt;
  2884. &lt;br /&gt;
  2885. With no real organized opposition to the measure, local leaders in Humboldt say it&#39;s time to face up to the future and brainstorm creative ideas to offset any impending slump.&lt;br /&gt;
  2886. &lt;br /&gt;
  2887. &quot;Here we have an industry with whom our county&#39;s name has, quite frankly, become synonymous,&quot; said County Supervisor Mark Lovelace. &quot;We&#39;ve lived with the downside of that name association for the past thirty years. Maybe it&#39;s time to capture some of the upside.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2888. &lt;br /&gt;
  2889. Ideas include taking a tip from French champagne, branding the Humboldt name as an appellation and focusing on terroir and tasting rooms. Others say that&#39;s a pipe dream.&lt;br /&gt;
  2890. &lt;br /&gt;
  2891. &quot;We don&#39;t need to panic and create weed Disneyland,&quot; said one grower, who believes the risk to growers has been overblown and foresees a continuing black market even if the law passes.&lt;br /&gt;
  2892. &lt;br /&gt;
  2893. The 32-year-old illegal grower, who declined to be identified, predicts connoisseurs will eschew the cheaper varieties in a legal market and pay a premium for Humboldt&#39;s best strains.&lt;br /&gt;
  2894. &lt;br /&gt;
  2895. Pot growers could also harness their know-how for other horticultural pursuits, he said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2896. &lt;br /&gt;
  2897. &quot;It&#39;s easy money right now,&quot; said the self-described &quot;average indoor grower&quot; with $40,000 in income every two and a half months. &quot;But these might be the future organic farmers of the area. That skill can be applied to more things than just marijuana.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;

  2917.    <title>Mettenberger dismissed from team</title>
  2918.    <link></link>
  2919.    <description>Fans were waiting for Georgia to release an official post-spring depth chart to find out who the front-runner for the vacant starting quarterback job would be. What they got was a stunning announcement from the school that redshirt freshman quarterback Zach Mettenberger had been dismissed from the program.&lt;br /&gt;
  2920. &lt;br /&gt;
  2921. One month after being arrested in Remerton on charges of underage consumption of alcohol and possession of false identification, the school released a brief statement Sunday saying that Mettenberger had been dismissed from the program due to a violation of team rules.&lt;br /&gt;
  2922. &lt;br /&gt;
  2923. Head coach Mark Richt had said throughout the spring that Mettenberger would face a minimum of a one-game suspension for the arrest in Remerton, but had failed to set a specific timetable on when the quarterback might return to action. Georgia sports information director Claude Felton confirmed Sunday that the dismissal did not stem from a new incident or arrest involving Mettenberger. Felton said Richt informed Mettenberger of the decision Sunday and was unlikely to make additional public comments on the quarterback&#39;s situation in the near future.&lt;br /&gt;
  2924. &lt;br /&gt;
  2925. While the dismissal means Mettenberger’s career at Georgia will end without him ever taking the field in a game, it also means the competition for the starting quarterback job in the fall will have a much different look than was expected.&lt;br /&gt;
  2926. &lt;br /&gt;
  2927. Mettenberger was seen as the most likely challenger for fellow redshirt freshman Aaron Murray in the race to land the starting job, and the battle only appeared to intensify after last week’s G-Day game that wrapped up spring practice.&lt;br /&gt;
  2928. &lt;br /&gt;
  2929. Mettenberger completed 6-of-10 passes for 150 yards and two touchdowns in the game, while Murray struggled, connecting on just 8-of-19 passes for 96 yards and an interception. Logan Gray, the third quarterback in the race, was 10-of- 17 for 132 yards and a touchdown.&lt;br /&gt;
  2930. &lt;br /&gt;
  2931. With Mettenberger gone, Murray would appear to have the inside track on the starting job in the fall, with Gray still a legitimate candidate. Lassiter High School quarterback Hutson Mason is scheduled to arrive in Athens in June with the rest of the Bulldogs’ incoming freshmen to add another name to the depth chart.&lt;br /&gt;
  2932. &lt;br /&gt;
  2933. A graduate of Oconee County High School in Watkinsville, Mettenberger redshirted last season but had made impressive strides in the past year and posted the best scrimmage stats of the spring. Following his arrest in early March, however, he was barred from any contact with media.&lt;br /&gt;
  2934. &lt;br /&gt;
  2935. An official depth chart is expected to be released sometime this week, but Felton said it would not be in the next several days.&lt;br /&gt;
  2936. &lt;br /&gt;
  2937. Here&#39;s the full release from the school...&lt;br /&gt;
  2938. &lt;br /&gt;
  2939. University of Georgia redshirt freshman quarterback Zach Mettenberger has been dismissed from the Bulldog football team according to a Sunday announcement by UGA head coach Mark Richt.&lt;br /&gt;
  2940. &lt;br /&gt;
  2941. According to Richt, the dismissal is a result of violation of team rules.&lt;br /&gt;
  2942. &lt;br /&gt;
  2943. A graduate of Oconee County High School in Watkinsville, Ga., Mettenberger had been issued a minimum one-game suspension by Richt following an alcohol-related arrest in March.&lt;br /&gt;
  2944. &lt;br /&gt;

  2950.    <title>G-Day: 2010 Spring Scrimmage Highlights</title>
  2951.    <link></link>
  2952.    <description>Here are the highlights of Georgia&#39;s 2010 Spring Scrimmage game. I&#39;ll add some notes from David Hale later to enhance what I&#39;ve collected from the day that I enjoyed.&lt;br /&gt;
  2953. &lt;br /&gt;
  2954. &lt;object width=&quot;560&quot; height=&quot;340&quot;&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;movie&quot; value=&quot;;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;color1=0xe1600f&amp;color2=0xfebd01&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;allowFullScreen&quot; value=&quot;true&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;allowscriptaccess&quot; value=&quot;always&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;embed src=&quot;;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;color1=0xe1600f&amp;color2=0xfebd01&quot; type=&quot;application/x-shockwave-flash&quot; allowscriptaccess=&quot;always&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;true&quot; width=&quot;560&quot; height=&quot;340&quot;&gt;&lt;/embed&gt;&lt;/object&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2955. &lt;br /&gt;
  2956. &lt;b&gt;My Thoughts&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  2957. Logan looked like his usual consistent self from all the practice videos and scrimmage stats ive seen. he only had one bad day and that was behind the 2nd team offensive line.&lt;br /&gt;
  2958. &lt;br /&gt;
  2959. Mettenberger is of course the star QB from this game, but i see that suspension holding him back, and giving murray and gray a chance to win the starter more. &lt;br /&gt;
  2960. &lt;br /&gt;
  2961. I am loving what I&#39;m seeing from this Durham guy who we didn&#39;t see much of last year. He&#39;s got some feet for a white guy.&lt;br /&gt;
  2962. &lt;br /&gt;
  2963. &lt;b&gt;FYI &lt;/b&gt;- Here are some of the play makers by number, position, and name:&lt;br /&gt;
  2964. &lt;br /&gt;
  2965. #5 QB: Zach Mettenberger&lt;br /&gt;
  2966. #6 QB: Logan Gray&lt;br /&gt;
  2967. #11 QB: Aaron Murray&lt;br /&gt;
  2968. #8 WR: AJ Green&lt;br /&gt;

  2982.    <title>Polish leader, 96 others dead in Russia jet crash</title>
  2983.    <link></link>
  2984.    <description>MOSCOW – &lt;b&gt;&lt;i&gt;Polish President Lech Kaczynski&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/b&gt; and some of the country&#39;s highest military and civilian leaders died on Saturday when the presidential plane crashed as it came in for a landing in thick fog in western Russia, killing 97, officials said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2985. &lt;br /&gt;
  2986. Russian and Polish officials said there were no survivors on the 26-year-old Tupolev, which was taking the president, his wife and staff to events marking the 70th anniversary of the massacre in Katyn forest of thousands of Polish officers by Soviet secret police.&lt;br /&gt;
  2987. &lt;br /&gt;
  2988. The crash devastated the upper echelons of Poland&#39;s political and military establishments. On board were the army chief of staff, national bank president, deputy foreign minister, army chaplain, head of the National Security Office, deputy parliament speaker, civil rights commissioner and at least two presidential aides and three lawmakers, the Polish foreign ministry said.&lt;br /&gt;
  2989. &lt;br /&gt;
  2990. Although initial signs pointed to an accident with no indication of foul play, the death of a Polish president and much of the Polish state and defense establishment in Russia en route to commemorating one of the saddest events in Poland&#39;s long, complicated history with Russia, was laden with tragic irony.&lt;br /&gt;
  2991. &lt;br /&gt;
  2992. Reflecting the grave sensibilities of the crash to relations between the two countries, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin personally assumed charge of the investigation. He was due in Smolensk later Saturday, where he would meet Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk, who was flying in from Warsaw.&lt;br /&gt;
  2993. &lt;br /&gt;
  2994. &quot;This is unbelievable — this tragic, cursed Katyn,&quot; Kaczynski&#39;s predecessor, Aleksander Kwasniewski, said on TVN24 television.&lt;br /&gt;
  2995. &lt;br /&gt;
  2996. It is &quot;a cursed place, horrible symbolism,&quot; he said. &quot;It&#39;s hard to believe. You get chills down your spine.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  2997. &lt;br /&gt;
  2998. Andrei Yevseyenkov, spokesman for the Smolensk regional government, said Russian dispatchers asked the crew to divert from the military airport in North Smolensk and land instead in Minsk, the capital of neighboring Belarus, or in Moscow because of the fog.&lt;br /&gt;
  2999. &lt;br /&gt;
  3000. While traffic controllers generally have the final word in whether it is safe for a plane to land, they can and do leave it to the pilots&#39; discretion.&lt;br /&gt;
  3001. &lt;br /&gt;
  3002. Air Force Gen. Alexander Alyoshin confirmed that the pilot disregarded instructions to fly to another airfield.&lt;br /&gt;
  3003. &lt;br /&gt;
  3004. &quot;But they continued landing, and it ended, unfortunately, with a tragedy,&quot; the Interfax news agency quoted Alyoshin as saying. He added that the pilot makes the final decision about whether to land.&lt;br /&gt;
  3005. &lt;br /&gt;
  3006. Russia&#39;s Emergency Minister Sergei Shoigu said there were 97 dead. His ministry said 88 of whom were part of the Polish state delegation. Poland&#39;s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Piotr Paszkowski, said there were 89 people on the passenger list but one person had not shown up for the roughly 1 1/2-hour flight from Warsaw&#39;s main airport.&lt;br /&gt;
  3007. &lt;br /&gt;
  3008. Some of the people on board were relatives of those slain in the Katyn massacre. Also among the victims was Anna Walentynowicz, whose firing in August 1980 from the Lenin Shipyards in Gdansk sparked a workers&#39; strike that spurred the eventual creation of the Solidarity freedom movement. She went on to be a prominent member.&lt;br /&gt;
  3009. &lt;br /&gt;
  3010. &quot;This is a great tragedy, a great shock to us all,&quot; former president and Solidarity leader Lech Walesa said.&lt;br /&gt;
  3011. &lt;br /&gt;
  3012. The deaths were not expected to directly affect the functioning of Polish government: Poland&#39;s president is commander in chief of its armed forces but the position&#39;s domestic duties are chiefly symbolic. Most top government ministers were not aboard the plane.&lt;br /&gt;
  3013. &lt;br /&gt;
  3014. According to the Aviation Safety Network, there have been 66 crashes involving Tu-154s in the past four decades, including six in the past five years. The Russian carrier Aeroflot recently withdrew its Tu-154 fleet from service, largely because the planes do not meet international noise restrictions and use too much fuel.&lt;br /&gt;
  3015. &lt;br /&gt;
  3016. The aircraft was the workhorse of East Bloc civil aviation in the 1970s and 1980s, and many of the crashes have been attributed to the chaos that ensued after the breakup of the Soviet Unio&lt;br /&gt;
  3017. &lt;br /&gt;
  3018. Poland has long discussed replacing the planes that carry the country&#39;s leaders but said they lacked the funds.&lt;br /&gt;
  3019. &lt;br /&gt;
  3020. The presidential plane was fully overhauled in December, the general director of the Aviakor aviation maintenance plant in Samara, Russia told Rossiya-24. The plant repaired the plane&#39;s three engines, retrofitted electronic and navigation equipment and updated the interior, Alexei Gusev said. He said there could be no doubts that the plane was flightworthy.&lt;br /&gt;
  3021. &lt;br /&gt;
  3022. The plane tilted to the left before crashing, eyewitness Slawomir Sliwinski told state news channel Rossiya-24. He said there were two loud explosions when the aircraft hit the ground.&lt;br /&gt;
  3023. &lt;br /&gt;
  3024. Rossiya-24 showed footage from the crash site, with pieces of the plane scattered widely amid leafless trees and small fires burning in woods shrouded with fog. A tail fin with the red and white national colors of Poland stuck up from the debris.&lt;br /&gt;
  3025. &lt;br /&gt;
  3026. Polish-Russian relations had been improving of late after being poisoned for decades over the Katyn massacre of some 22,000 Polish officers.&lt;br /&gt;
  3027. &lt;br /&gt;
  3028. Russia never has formally apologized for the murders but Putin&#39;s decision to attend a memorial ceremony earlier this week in the forest near Katyn was seen as a gesture of goodwill toward reconciliation. Kaczynski wasn&#39;t invited to that event. Putin, as prime minister, had invited his Polish counterpart, Tusk.&lt;br /&gt;
  3029. &lt;br /&gt;
  3030. Putin and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev both called Tusk to express their condolences and they promised to work closely with Poland in investigating the crash. Tusk said they had been the first to offer condolences.&lt;br /&gt;
  3031. &lt;br /&gt;
  3032. &quot;On this difficult day the people of Russia stand with the Polish people,&quot; Medvedev said, according to the Kremlin press service.&lt;br /&gt;
  3033. &lt;br /&gt;
  3034. Putin told Tusk that he would keep him fully briefed on the investigation, his spokesman said.&lt;br /&gt;
  3035. &lt;br /&gt;
  3036. Rossiya-24 showed hundreds of people around the Katyn monument, many holding Polish flags, some weeping.&lt;br /&gt;
  3037. &lt;br /&gt;
  3038. Poland&#39;s parliament speaker, the acting president, declared a week of national mourning. Tusk called for two minutes of silence at noon (1000GMT) Sunday.&lt;br /&gt;
  3039. &lt;br /&gt;
  3040. &quot;The contemporary world has not seen such a tragedy,&quot; he said.&lt;br /&gt;
  3041. &lt;br /&gt;
  3042. In Warsaw, Tusk also called an extraordinary meeting of his Cabinet and the national flag was lowered to half-staff at the presidential palace, where several thousand people gathered to lay flowers and light candles. Black ribbons appeared in some windows in the capital.&lt;br /&gt;
  3043. &lt;br /&gt;
  3044. Kaczynski, 60, was the twin brother of Poland&#39;s opposition leader, former Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski. Kaczynski&#39;s wife, Maria, was an economist. They had a daughter, Marta, and two granddaughters.&lt;br /&gt;
  3045. &lt;br /&gt;
  3046. Lech Kaczynski became president in December 2005 after defeating Tusk in that year&#39;s presidential vote.&lt;br /&gt;
  3047. &lt;br /&gt;
  3048. The nationalist conservative had said he would seek a second term in presidential elections this fall. He was expected to face an uphill struggle against Parliament speaker Bronislaw Komorowski, the candidate of Tusk&#39;s governing Civic Platform party.&lt;br /&gt;
  3049. &lt;br /&gt;
  3050. The constitution says the parliament speaker announce early elections within 14 days of the president&#39;s death. The vote must be held within another 60 days.&lt;br /&gt;
  3051. &lt;br /&gt;
  3052. Poland, a nation of 38 million people, is by far the largest of the 10 formerly communist countries that have joined the European Union in recent years.&lt;br /&gt;
  3053. &lt;br /&gt;
  3054. Last year, Poland was the only EU nation to avoid recession and posted economic growth of 1.7 percent.&lt;br /&gt;
  3055. &lt;br /&gt;
  3056. It has become a firm U.S. ally in the region since the fall of communism — a stance that crosses party lines.&lt;br /&gt;
  3057. &lt;br /&gt;
  3058. The country sent troops to the U.S.-led war in Iraq and recently boosted its contingent in Afghanistan to some 2,600 soldiers.&lt;br /&gt;
  3059. &lt;br /&gt;
  3060. U.S. Patriot missiles are expected to be deployed in Poland this year. That was a Polish condition for a 2008 deal — backed by both Kaczynski and Tusk — to host long-range missile defense interceptors.&lt;br /&gt;
  3061. &lt;br /&gt;
  3062. The deal, which was struck by the Bush administration, angered Russia and was later reconfigured under President Barack Obama&#39;s administration.&lt;br /&gt;
  3063. &lt;br /&gt;
  3064. Under the Obama plan, Poland would host a different type of missile defense interceptors as part of a more mobile system and at a later date, probably not until 2018.&lt;br /&gt;
  3065. &lt;br /&gt;
  3066. Kaczynski is the first serving Polish leader to die since exiled World War II-era leader Gen. Wladyslaw Sikorski in a plane crash off Gibraltar in 1943.&lt;br /&gt;
  3067. &lt;br /&gt;
  3068. In the village of Gorzno, in northern Poland, the streets were largely empty as people stayed home to watch television.&lt;br /&gt;

  3072. &quot;I worry because so many clever and decent people were killed,&quot; said high school student Pawel Kwas, 17. &quot;I am afraid we may have problems in the future to find equally talented politicians.&quot; &lt;br /&gt;

  3084.    <description>&quot;Saved by the Bell&quot; actor Dustin Diamond may have to do another XXX flick, because he&#39;s about to lose his home.&lt;br /&gt;
  3085. &lt;br /&gt;
  3086. Wells Fargo Bank just filed legal papers, claiming Screech is more than $290,000 behind on his mortgage.&lt;br /&gt;
  3087. &lt;br /&gt;
  3088. The bank wants to foreclose on the property, located in Ozaukee County, Wisconsin.&lt;br /&gt;
  3089. &lt;br /&gt;
  3090. If this sounds familiar ... Diamond avoided foreclosure back in 2006 by selling &quot;Save My House&quot; t-shirts for $15 a pop.&lt;br /&gt;

  3248.    <title>Bulldogs 2010 Predictions</title>
  3249.    <link></link>
  3250.    <description>These are my personal predictions for how I think next season will play out for a &quot;down but not out&quot; Georgia Bulldog football team.&lt;br /&gt;
  3251. &lt;br /&gt;
  3252. 09/04/10 Time TBA   &lt;br /&gt;
  3253. Louisiana &lt;b&gt;W&lt;/b&gt;   &lt;br /&gt;
  3254. &lt;br /&gt;
  3255. My reasoning behind this one is obvious. We&#39;re obviously a superior foe to the &quot;Rajun Cajuns&quot;. The run game should explode; King and Ealey both top 100 yards each, with Branden Smith seeing a couple long runs himself. Expect Boykin to even possibly return a kick for a touchdown or 50+ yards.&lt;br /&gt;
  3256. &lt;br /&gt;
  3257. 09/11/10 Time TBA  &lt;br /&gt;
  3258. at South Carolina &lt;b&gt;W&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  3259. &lt;br /&gt;
  3260. History dictates this will be a close game due to the inner division rivalry. I still feel in favor of the Bulldogs because of Richt&#39;s record against Spurrier at South Carolina.&lt;br /&gt;
  3261.   &lt;br /&gt;
  3262. 09/18/10 Time TBA &lt;br /&gt;
  3263. Arkansas &lt;b&gt;W&lt;/b&gt;   &lt;br /&gt;
  3264. &lt;br /&gt;
  3265. Jamie is an Arkansas fan. It makes me hate Arkansas that much more. Looking at last years results, expect Ryan Mallet from Arkansas to throw around 4 touchdowns and put up a couple of quarterback runs to keep this game high scoring and close. Still in favor of the Bulldogs, not only because of Richt&#39;s record against Arkansas but because we were able to put up over 50 points on their defense last year with a less experienced offensive unit. Expect AJ Green and the special teams to be a big factor in this one.&lt;br /&gt;
  3266. &lt;br /&gt;
  3267. 09/25/10 Time TBA &lt;br /&gt;
  3268. at Mississippi State   &lt;b&gt;W&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  3269. &lt;br /&gt;
  3270. Mississippi State upset their in-state and superior rival Ole Miss last season. Dan Mullen has taken that program from a non-contending bottom dweller in the SEC west to a possible contender in years to come. Miss State will prove defensively they are more of a challenge this year than our experience in years past. However, I am still in favor of the Bulldogs by at least 10-14 points.&lt;br /&gt;
  3271. &lt;br /&gt;
  3272. 10/02/10 Time TBA   &lt;br /&gt;
  3273. at Colorado   &lt;b&gt;W&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  3274. &lt;br /&gt;
  3275. Last time we played Colorado, Stafford was out of the game and we were on the losing end of things. Joe Cox gets one of his most famous highlights here, leading the Georgia offense to a victory in one of his first ever meaningful snaps with the Bulldogs, prior to his starting season as a Senior. I picked a win here based on Richt&#39;s out of conference record, which is remarkable. Bobo was able to draw up an offensive attack to beat the Buffalos in the last minutes of the game. Expect the 1-2 punch of King and Ealey to run all over this lesser conference defense and AJ Green to add some highlights.&lt;br /&gt;
  3276. &lt;br /&gt;
  3277. 10/09/10 Time TBA   &lt;br /&gt;
  3278. Tennessee   &lt;b&gt;W&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  3279. &lt;br /&gt;
  3280. Last year we were embarrassed by a rebuilding Volunteer program under Lane &quot;Lame&quot; Kiffin. Martinez apparently 100% believed they would run on their first play out of the gates, running the ball most of the game against a stout Georgia defense against the run. He and most of the talking heads on TV were wrong. Kiffin obviously knew that Martinez believed it, since he called the perfect thing to counter it: Play-action Rollout. Johnathon Crompton came alive during this game with these play-action rollout plays. It seemed like everytime Martinez called a run defense, it was play-action from Kiffin. The loss of this game pissed me off pretty bad, it was one we should not have lost, but we lost by a big margin. Many things went terribly wrong on the coaching side of the ball for the Bulldogs if you ask my opinion. But expect this year, against new Volunteer coach Derek Dooley, son of previous Bulldogs coach Vince Dooley, whom has a career losing record with a team from a much much lesser conference; to get pounded by a revitalized and experienced Georgia offense. I predict the new Grantham 3-4 defense has settled in nicely by this point in the season and makes a name for itself. We keep the Volunteers from scoring more than 20 points, and return last years favor by hitting the 40+ mark. Inner division rivalries are sweet. Oh, I can already hear ol&#39; Vince now: &quot;Boy, you picked not only the wrong conference, but the wrong division. BULLDOGS.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  3281. &lt;br /&gt;
  3282. 10/16/10 Time TBA  &lt;br /&gt;
  3283. Vanderbilt &lt;b&gt;W&lt;/b&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  3284. &lt;br /&gt;
  3285. Vanderbilt is obviously a bottom dweller in the SEC eastern division. Although an inner division rivalry, and Richt has at least one Vanderbilt loss on his career, Vanderbilt is not currently a strong contender in an ever increasingly competitive SEC east with Florida (previously) leading the pack. We dominate the Commodores again this year with a 200+ yard rushing attack and Brandon Boykin embarasses another kick coverage team.&lt;br /&gt;
  3286. &lt;br /&gt;
  3287. 10/23/10 Time TBA   &lt;br /&gt;
  3288. at Kentucky &lt;b&gt;W&lt;/b&gt;   &lt;br /&gt;
  3289. &lt;br /&gt;
  3290. We lost this game last year, our last home game of the season. Pathetic. Kentucky is now apparently a mid-range contender for the SEC east, with teams like South Carolina. In these matchups the bulldogs are usually favored. Last year we easily could have won, had Branden Smith not fumbled that return early in the 3rd quarter. I believe the score at the half was 20-6 bulldogs, and we got the ball after it. So the game was obviously going well in our favor, but then turnovers definately cost us that game. Joe Cox over compensated what he had to do and everything just went wrong. I don&#39;t blame the coaches here, but the players definately should have taken some heat for this one. Expect Richt to cook up a personal game plan for this one, and give the Wildcats what they deserve: an embarrasing home field beating. I see another strong rushing attack in this one, with AJ Green making some more highlights.&lt;br /&gt;
  3291. &lt;br /&gt;
  3292. 10/30/10 3:30 p.m. ET   &lt;br /&gt;
  3293. Florida   &lt;b&gt;W&lt;/b&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  3294. &lt;br /&gt;
  3295. History tells us we will most likely lose this game. Although the Bulldogs lead the all time series, Florida has dominated this one as of late. We did upset them a couple of years ago, and I think now is our chance. A weakened Florida program because of changes on the coaching staff and no real established play makers on the depth chart. Urban Meyer gets what he deserves for his obvious cheating techniques during the recruiting process and cuttthroat techniques against his older players whom don&#39;t perform. Richt gives Florida an upset and takes control of the SEC east with this win. We now control our own destiny and could make an appearance in the SEC championship.&lt;br /&gt;
  3296. &lt;br /&gt;
  3297. 11/06/10 Time TBA   &lt;br /&gt;
  3298. Idaho State   &lt;b&gt;W&lt;/b&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  3299. &lt;br /&gt;
  3300. Who the hell is Idaho State? Expect the rushing attack of King and Ealey to hit 200+ yards and AJ Green to look like a god in this game. You&#39;ll probably see our 2nd team offense and defenses getting some reps in the 2nd half. &lt;br /&gt;
  3301. &lt;br /&gt;
  3302. 11/13/10 Time TBA   &lt;br /&gt;
  3303. at Auburn   &lt;b&gt;W&lt;/b&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  3304. &lt;br /&gt;
  3305. Tubberville didn&#39;t really know what the hell he was doing at Auburn and niether does his successor Gene Chizik. Auburns high paced high powered offense couldn&#39;t do a whole lot against a Georgia defense which was amongst the worst in the nation. Expect this to play out much the same as it did last year, given that the game is a road game for us, I still believe we come in strong and our new QB whomever it may be, grows up alot during this game.&lt;br /&gt;
  3306. &lt;br /&gt;
  3307. 11/20/10   Open Date &lt;br /&gt;
  3308. &lt;br /&gt;
  3309. We&#39;ve got a bye week here. They better be preparing the new defense to repeat last years stomp of Georgia Tech, because if we lose a 2nd game in the past 3 years to GT I am going to be incredibly pissed off.&lt;br /&gt;
  3310.   &lt;br /&gt;
  3311. 11/27/10 Time TBA   &lt;br /&gt;
  3312. Georgia Tech &lt;b&gt;W&lt;/b&gt;  &lt;br /&gt;
  3313. &lt;br /&gt;
  3314. History tells us we control this rivalry, hands down. It&#39;s not by a small or even a medium margin, either. However as of late, a rebuilt program under their new coach and a controversial high-school style triple option offensive attack; GT poses a threat to our possible undefeated season. As long as our defense can keep the score below the 30&#39;s I think we will be ok. Our offense is potent and experienced enough to score beyond the 30 point mark if necessary and I think Bobo and the new QB will be to thank for this win; it will be close as it usually is.&lt;br /&gt;
  3315. &lt;br /&gt;
  3316. 12/04/10 Time TBA   &lt;br /&gt;
  3317. SEC Championship   &lt;b&gt;L&lt;/b&gt; to Alabama&lt;br /&gt;
  3318. &lt;br /&gt;
  3319. If all of my predictions are correct and we make it to the Championship it will most likely be against Alabama, if not them then definately LSU as I don&#39;t see any other real contenders in the West, the lesser division in the SEC in my opinion. If LSU I&#39;d say we have a fair chance to win it. But against Alabama, whom is the most likely contender, I don&#39;t think we can win it. Their current offense and defense are still pretty well established and they should come out strong this season and probably win it all again. Although our chances are higher than they have been in years past, I don&#39;t believe this is our year. Maybe next year when Ingram and company are out of the picture.</description>
