It is going to be one of those days in Athens.
It is Senior Day for the Georgia Bulldogs and they will be honoring 23 members of the football team. No doubt, there will also be a tearful salute to their beloved mascot, UGA VII, who passed away earlier in the week.
It will be a game filled with emotion and one that will have the Georgia team sufficiently fired up. It always seems like UK faces teams that need to prove a point with a win at our expense. On top of the departing seniors and departed mascot, the coach Mark Richt is fighting for his job. Georgia isn’t taking the Cats lightly and are concentrating on run defense to slow down the Cats.
This is shaping up to be one of those ‘statement games’ for the Bulldogs. I am confident, though, that the Cats can play the role of spoiler. I was close on the basketball game prediction earlier in the day so let’s hope I have some magic left for the football team as well. Cats win a squeaker, 31-27.
Join us for a Live Blog at 7:00p. Drew will be on shortly with a recap of the basketball game with behind the scenes goodness. Go Cats.
