Haiku-less Friday

Happy Friday. In the 3 minutes it would have taken me to do a haiku, I decided to find a badass picture of Kris Durham instead. That picture reminded me that we are 1-0 in the state of Florida in 2009. I don't know about our chances tomorrow. The Gators have a better offense and a better defense than we do. We have a good kicker, a great punter, and AJ Green. The pressure is on them. Go Dogs!

Thanks for all the love on the blog. I really appreciate it. I've been in school for what seems like forever, and I can't really say that I've learned that much important stuff. Somewhere along the way though, I did realize how fragile life is. I think it's important to tell the people who matter how you feel about them. The dumb birthday posts you fruits made were the best presents in the world. I'm lucky to live in the greatest country in the world in the best city. I'm lucky I got to go to the best high school in America. And I realize that Dotson would make fun of me for saying this (as he would for the entire post), but I am lucky to have the best group of friends in the world. Thanks, guys. Yall are great, even Shane.


Let the Good Times Roll...

Might as well keep this party rockin' till the wee morning hours just like Bell and myself have done oh so many times before.

Teamwork is the key to success in the JROTC program.

I thought about reflecting back on some of the greatest Bell-Schwarz moments of all time. The problem with that is 1) there's just too damn many and 2) Don would probably have a better recollection of the events than myself. Seeing as how Murray, JH4, and Weazle have already done a damn fine job telling the world about what makes DB awesome, I'll keep it short and sweet:

Have a great birthday and don't do anything I wouldn't do! 1338 Gables Dr. will celebrate in your honor this weekend.

The General and I salute you on this glorious occasion and here's to many happy returns...

I'll leave you with a grand tune that's sure to conjure up good times and great memories:

P.S. Monsieur Webber sends his best and hopes to see you around Tybee some time, maybe at the Legion.

Shane beat me...

but Donnie is good and since I'm part of Dawg Duo I can't be his best friend but can be a friend.

Top 5:
1. Don is a player. He played at St. Michael’s and dominated with a star-studded crew. Plowe would pass him the ball. He then told those players they were not good enough, for he had found Chuck. Despite that, he was such a good guy prior to the departure that most everyone in the SMS family is still friendly with him today. He went onto Benedictine where he excelled in sports. He played Football just because and short of Houston might have been the most productive player on the team. He won the Effingham game almost by himself. He was a 3 year starter on the hardwood in the toughest region in the state. He was the common component in one of the greatest achievements in BC history. He, along with Frankie J., defeated Savannah High in consecutive years. The second of which came in the Ron Love Athletic Center. He also played baseball with Bunger and Patton. He was a LET III student.

2. Don is a gracious host. Whether it’s Tybee, Athens, or Statesboro he has always been more than generous with his living space. The room and board that has been offered by Don and his family over the past years has been quite amazing and there is almost nothing any of us can do to show the gratitude they deserve. In the same spirit, he is more willing than anyone I know to help you out when you need it.

3. He will have a good time. He has had his fair share of horsemen by his side, but no matter where the show goes the common thread is Don. He went stride for stride with the Champ for almost 4 years. The student caught up to the mentor and the show has only grown. There are people in Statesboro who still don’t know exactly what he’s doing and Williams sometimes falls asleep. I’ve never seen him in Vegas but if New Orleans was any indication I don’t know how good of an idea either one of those are. There are very few I have ever seen that can compete with him.

4. He lives well. He could not have attended better schools growing up, outside of 1 year. He lives on Tybee and can surf. He played sports and was good at them. People he doesn’t like, like him. Has fundamentally sound golf swing. He lived at Tanyard and could walk to Bourbon as well as Peaches. Has had girlfriends. He knew Idrissi and Bliss. He says he knows Durham. Honorary KA.

5. Still friends with Plowe despite him being a Dagon for 8 years. Makes fun of Shane a lot.

10-6 Happy Birthday, gtg.

"Yeah, Probably Your Toaster"

I don't quite know how to toast the toastmaster, but I'll give it a shot...

I also don't know 10 good things about Donnie so I'll keep this brief. Donnie is my best friend. If for 30 years Donnie and I didn't speak to each other; in 30 years, when we did, we would pick up right where we left off.

Here is 5 good things about Donnie:

5) He's more clever than anyone I have ever met.
4) He's a friend to the ladies
3) He's a great drinking partner although he is an instigator of Gin drinking.
2) People want to be his friend. I haven't known Donnie for that long, but I'd bet he's never had a difficult time finding friends.
1) He's actually not that bad of a guy

Yea, my number one was "He's actually not that bad of a guy." You're Welcome.

I think you should have a couple on me this weekend Donnie. Lets try to get as drunk as this guys...

Or, this guy...

Weekend Thoughts

1: Dogs win. AJ Green is the best (healthy) wide receiver in college football. Our defense looked good. Drew Butler can punt the ball far. Walsh is good.

2: Cadets put up 24 against Charlton. I wasn't at the game so I'm not sure if that came in garbage time or what, but at least they covered the spread.

3: CPC did it again. The end of that game was awesome.

4: The pass interference call at the end of the Florida game was awful. The personal foul call was ridiculous; it was worse than the AJ Green celebration call.

5: I heard Jeff Francouer was rocking and rolling in Savannah this weekend. I guess he didn't make it down to Tybee. He seems like more of a HHI guy anyway.

6: DJ Marty is still doing his thing at Tybee Times.

7: Boise St. -3, Georgia -1/2, and USC -3 worked out well.

8: The Calvary/Portal game was the worst high school football game I've ever seen.

9: 5 more days until the 2004 5 year class reunion. Prediction: about 40 guys show up, about 10 make it into the game, and a handful get arrested later that night. This will be the last 5 year reunion BC has.

10: Apparently, there is a category 5 Hurricane Rick heading for Mexico. The paper said the storm was "extremely dangerous". No shit.

Humpday Thoughts

1: New South Park at 10:00 tonight. Nip/Tuck encore at 11:00. Solid TV.

2: I liked South Park last Wednesday. This season of Desperate has been awesome so far.

3: Next Friday, the class of 2004 is having its 5 year reunion at the BC game. Over/under arrests: 4 1/2.

4: Florida's defense > Bama's defense. Bama's offense > Florida's offense. Florida/Bama Special Teams: Push. I like the Gators in the Dome.

5: How does Tebow suffer his first significant injury before an off week? That would never happen to a team I like.

6: I hope the Angels win it all.

7: It's too bad about the USA soccer player, Davies. I hope he makes a full recovery.

8: Teaser lock of the week: Boise -3, UGA -1/2, USC-3.

9: I'm glad Georgia doesn't play Tech on Pirate Fest weekends.

10: Rush should be able to buy the Rams. Players/coaches should be able to speak their minds about it.

11: Cowherd needs to go back to radio.

12: I hope Paul Wolfe loses.

13: October is the best month of the year on Tybee. May is the second.

14: I like Fr. O'Brien. The SMS/SPA rivalry is dying down.

15: Athens restaurants > Statesboro restaurants.

16: Go Dogs. Go Cadets. Go Irish.

Valdosta does things a little differently

TE-per-BOW-le, 10.12.09

This piece of work might not be teperbowle(TM) so much as it is painfully unfunny, but Dr. Saturday stole my thunder Sunday with this screen shot of ESPN's front page, so it'll have to do for now.

BATON ROUGE — Tim Tebow does not drink beer, but if and when he does it should be Dos Equis.

For Florida quarterback Tim Tebow is the most interesting young man IN THE WORLD. (Ed.: It goes on. And on...)

Oh brother.

Caring is not the Problem

I think a majority of the team cares and wants to succeed, and you will see that in Jacksonville. The problem is the attitude. From top to bottom the attitude resembles nothing conducive for tough football. Part of why we can't run the football is because we are not tough enough. Man enough, Dawg enough no more. The "leaders" of this team were complaining about how hard preseason camp was. That should have been the 1st indication. This attitude is running rampid because no one ever takes responsiblity when something bad happens. When it gets hard we make an excuse. Players are more than willing to make an excuse because the coaches they play for have a record that just keeps repeating itself. It was the refs fault, the wind was not in our favor, we had to fly twice in three weeks, we are banged up up front, we really lack experience in that area, thats what happens some times when you play aggresive. CMR makes excuse after excuse for his players and more importantly his coaches. Until somebody (CMR) steps up and tells it how it is, this type of play and attitude will continue.

We have the quality of athletes we had 5 years ago. I refuse to believe that the entire talent of 85 guys that UF, UA,UT and AU all wanted seem to all be underachieving at the same time. Its the attitude that Georgia does not have that Alabama does. You can care and still not be good.

Other side: The fact that UT had the ball on the 5 yard line and got a receiver open in the endzone by 10 yards is inexcusable. All you had to do was cover 15 yards of a football field and yet their guy runs a crossing route with no one ever within 10 yards of him. They run the exact sam play 10+ times and never, never was an adjustment made, ever. Crompton thought he was in high school again. I was a Willie apologist but not anymore, the dude does not put his playmakers in a position to make plays. Soft zone = soft attiude.

Prince Miller catching a punt on the 1 yard line is not a Prince problem, its a coach problem. He should not be back their for the rest of the season if he was coached on how to not go beyond the 10 yard line. Try a little bit of accountability!

Monty Kiffin said he was finally glad to see a regular offense when preparing for Georgia. The key word in that statement was REGULAR. Run right, run left, play action. The running plays are in slow motion. We can barely hold a block for 1 second. What makes us believe we will be able to hold them for 3?? The problem with play action on 3rd & 12 when you've run the ball for -10 yards on the day is that the linebackers are in their drops before te ball is even snapped. Quit running into the same wall Mike!!!

Someone at FSU brought up the point that the begining of deterioration for FSU was when CMR left for Athens. Well the same might have happened at Georgia when he left the OC position to a guy who was not nearly qualified nor was needed. CMR became Bobby Bowden 30 years to early. I'm not saying he calls plays that much better than Bobo but I think he lost a lot of influence over the direction of the program when he distanced himself. He needs to come back or hire someone who will light a fire under the players, staff, and fan base. Because the attidute resembles that of a pee-wee soccer team right now and unfortunately CMR, CWM, and CMB seem to love orange slices.

From Dawgpost:

Mike Bobo's playbook was released on a website!!!

I always knew I was going to be a millionaire. Today my dream came true. Now all I need to do is wait for this George Abbi (I am truly blessed for the real and honest angels of this world) to deposit my new found fortune into my banking account. I am soooooo excited!!

I felt a little guilty about taking all of the fortune for myself (seeing that I am not the only kin) so I am surprising my family with a piece of the pie. I got all of their banking information and sent it to George so that he could split the fortune up evenly. THE ARE GOING TO BE TOTALLY PSYCHED!!!!! I cannot wait to see the look on their face.

Read it and weep suckers....

Dear Shane Murray,

I am Barrister George Abbi, a solicitor at law, personal attorney to Mr.Robert Murray,a national Of your country, who used to work with Shell Development Company in Republic of Togo. Here in after shall be referred to as my client. On the 21st of April 2000, my client,his wife and their only daughter were involved in auto crash along ecowas express road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy here to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful.

After these several unsuccessful attempts,I decided to track his last name over the Internet, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you.I have contacted you to assist in repartrating the fund valued at US$6.5 million left behind by my client before it gets confisicated or declared unserviceable by Hi-Tech Security & Finance Lome, Togo where this huge amount was deposited in a trunk box with other treasures.

The said security company has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have his account confisicated within the next twenty one official working days but they dont know the content of the box. Since I have been unsuccesfull in locating the relatives for over 2years now, I seek the consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased since you have the same last names, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you.

Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities for transfer.I have all necessary information and legal documents needed to back you up for claim. All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me through this email( for more details.

Thanks and God bless you.

Best Regards,

George hasnt answered his phone or responded to any of my faxes lately. I think he accidentally typed the wrong #'s in the message. I'm sure he call me soon.

Recapture The Magic

Back on October 6th, 2001, CMR "knocked the lid" off the Georgia program with a hobnailed boot victory in Neyland Stadium (that was also a noon kick-off). What followed was 40+ wins, 3 SEC Championship game appearances, 2 SEC Championships, and a Sugar Bowl trophy in a 4 year span. This was the greatest stretch in Georgia football history outside of the the time that guy named Walker played between the hedges.

Back then, the Bulldogs were the beast of the east and the cream of the SEC crop. However, 9 short years later, I believe this program under CMR sits at a crossroads. Despite 2 losses already this season, a win in Knoxville will keep the Dawgs on track for a winner take-all showdown with Florida in Jacksonville on Halloween night. A loss on the other hand could send the season spiraling out of control. At that point, I believe we are staring 7-5 or 6-6 dead in the face.

Bulldog nation is getting restless and frankly they have every right to be. The product CMR and his coaching staff have put on the field starting in 2006 has been disappointing to say the least. Take away the latter half of the 2007 season (because remember the first half of that season was embarrassing to say least with a home loss to South Carolina and that annihilation at Neyland) and people would really be in an uproar. Our pre-season #1 team in 2008 really didn't play worth a damn all season.

Now, in 2009, the Dawgs are 3-2 traveling to Knoxville for a 12:21 kick-off against a terrible Tennessee team who they should absolutely destroy. The Vols have a new coach and a team hungry for their first big win of the season, a victory over a rival they shouldn't beat to give them hope for a better tomorrow. Sounds familiar doesn't it, kind of like Georgia-Tennessee 2001? Let's hope for another Georgia victory but more importantly let's hope this is a spring board like that 2001 game turned out to be.

I may be putting too much stock into this game and I realize comparing it to the 2001 game may be a bit of a stretch. After all, this is the first time neither team has been ranked in God knows how long and how much can we expect to learn from playing an awful Vols team. That being said, saying this game is a "must win" is an understatement. With both Florida and Alabama on a collision course for another SEC Championship game and the winner getting a shot at a National Championship (which they will win unless the play USC), Georgia cannot afford to fall further behind.

The bad news is I think we are dangerously close to slipping into mediocrity again, if we're not already there. The good news is I firmly believe the talent is there to bow up against the Mighty Gators and give them or any other SEC team a run for their money. Unfortunately, something is missing with this team and the program in general and it's been missing for awhile. I have an idea of what's missing but that's another post for another time.

I'm posting this because between the celebration penalty talk and the general consensus from Georgia fans that Tennessee is not very good, it just seems like the importance of this game on Saturday has been lost in the shuffle. I just hope the team and coaches have mentally moved on from Saturday and can recapture some of that magic from yesteryear dammit. Go Dawgs!!!!

Starting QB in '10

Lyle Allen has decided to quit baseball and will walk-on the Georgia Football team in the spring. There is very litle chance he will ever be relevant but he was a great high school QB. His Senior year he was named the AAA State Offensive POY passing for 3,000+ yards and 37 total TD's.
Even though he is dominating on the gridiron, maybe Trope will quit football to play baseball.

Time to make a statement?
Undefeated Cadets host region favorite McIntosh

By Rich McGowan
Since joining Region 2-AA, the Benedictine football team has felt as though it hasn't gotten the respect it has deserved.

If getting out to the school's best start since 1997 hasn't changed others' perceptions of the Cadets, a win tonight could. BC hosts McIntosh County Academy at Memorial Stadium at 7:30. The Buccaneers have made the postseason five consecutive seasons and are a perennial favorite in one of Class AA's toughest regions.

"If we can show everyone we can beat McIntosh, we'll have a great chance of making the playoffs," said sophomore running back Michael Summers. "It'll open up some eyes in the region and everyone will have more confidence in us."

Benedictine, with a 5-0 overall record (3-0 in region play), is off to its best start in 12 seasons, while McIntosh (3-1, 2-0) has won three in a row since dropping its season opener against Liberty County.

For BC coach Mark Stroud, the Cadets' showdown against McIntosh isn't so much about changing how people see his team, it's simply about staying in the chase for a region championship. "If you win the first game you're tied for first place. If you win the second one, you're tied for first place. You win the third one, you're tied for first place, you're just not tied with as many teams," Stroud said. "It's controlling your destiny each week."

One person who doesn't have to be convinced of BC's place among the region's top teams is McIntosh coach Robby Robinson. "We're playing an undefeated team and we're playing an undefeated team that's very good," Robinson said. "They're very fundamentally sound. They've got some explosive and skilled players on offense and they're very well-coached."

A year ago, the Cadets jumped out to a 21-7 lead, but just before halftime a blocked punt led to the Buccaneers trimming the BC lead to seven heading into intermission. MCA carried the momentum into the second half and went on to a 42-21 victory.

"I think it's about out of our minds," BC linebacker Matthew Shay said. "We're a brand new team now. Last year, we started out great and we let it go, it was a heartbreaking loss and a lot of us felt that."

Striving for perfection
Robinson isn't concerned about the Cadets having extra incentive stemming form last season's meeting. "To me, they'll be motivated to stay undefeated and move to 6-0," Robinson said. "That's motivation enough."

Shay, with a team-leading 35 tackles, headlines a defense that has been stellar this season. Through its first five games, the Cadet defense has allowed just 29 points. But to maintain its average of less than six points against per game, BC will have to slow down a Buccaneer rushing attack led by Alvin Jackson.

The junior running back has 662 yards in just four games with eight touchdowns on 105 carries and has helped the Bucs average 310 rushing yards a game. "Alvin is a power-type of guy," Robinson said. "He doesn't have great speed but he likes to run over folks."
Shay said: "They're definitely the first real tough test we've had. They're good, but we're good as well."

Offensively, the Cadets are led by their power rusher, senior John Williams, who enters averaging 96 yards a game and has scored seven touchdowns. Summers is averaging 79 yards a game and leads the team with eight touchdowns.

"They have some great athletes," Summers said. "For us to move the ball on them, we have to execute our blocking and have to just play as a team."

Who: McIntosh County Academy (3-1 overall, 2-0 Region 2-AA) at Benedictine (5-0, 3-0).
Where: Memorial Stadium.When: 7:30 tonight
What: A clash of two teams looking to be at the top of the region at season's end. McIntosh is a perennial region favorite while BC is trying to show it belongs among the region's elite.
