    Sam gives his thoughts on another big Georgia win, this time against Mizzou
  • ATHENS ---- Former Georgia All-America defensive back/wide receiver/kick returner Roland ‘’Champ’’ Bailey was among those selected for the 2017 Southeastern Conference Football Legends class, announced Tuesday by the SEC office. The class will be honored at the 2017 SEC Football “Weekend of Champions” Dec. 1-2 in Atlanta, Ga. The annual SEC Legends Dinner presented by AT&T will be held Friday, Dec. 1 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta and the group will also be recognized prior to the SEC Football Championship Game, which will be held at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Saturday, Dec. 2. Considered the most versatile player at Georgia since the inception of two-platoon football, Bailey was an All-American performer on offense, defense and special teams for the Bulldogs. He played more than 1,000 plays during his junior season in 1998, including more than 100 plays in seven different games. The All-Southeastern Conference selection was named winner of the 1998 Bronko Nagurski Award as the nation’s top defensive player and was a consensus All-American selection that year. In the ’98 season Bailey caught 47 passes for 744 yards and five TDs on offense, and on defense he totaled 52 tackles with three interceptions. Bailey was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the first round of the 1999 NFL draft and was a 12-time Pro Bowl (3-time 1st-team All-Pro) selection from 2000-2013 as a member of the Redskins and the Denver Broncos. He was named a member of the Football Writers Association of America 75th Anniversary All-America first team in 2015. He finished his pro career with 52 interceptions, four of which he returned for touchdowns. Other members of the 2017 class include Gene Stallings (Alabama), Dan Hampton (Arkansas), Carlos Rogers (Auburn), Danny Wuerffel (Florida), Nate Worthington (Kentucky), Glenn Dorsey (LSU), Terrence Metcalf (Ole Miss), Floyd Womack (Mississippi State), Brad Smith (Missouri), John Abraham (South Carolina), Chad Clifton (Tennessee), Dave Elmendorf (Texas A&M) and Don Orr (Vanderbilt).

  • UGA football continues to roll at 5-0 and will play at Vanderbilt this coming Saturday, as many are already looking forward to Homecoming Weekend the following Saturday.  Today, the SEC announced that Georgia and Missouri on 10/14 will have a kickoff time of  7:30pm on the SEC Network.  UGA will be looking for a small sense of redemption, as it lost its homecoming game to Vanderbilt last season. 
  • Nick Chubb may have received the ultimate redemption in his return to Knoxville and Neyland Stadium on Saturday: a 41-0 win over the Tennessee Volunteers.  But he received a little icing on that tasty cake on Monday, when the Southeastern Conference named him co-SEC Offensive Player of the Week. He shares the honor with Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham.  Chubb ran the ball 16 times for 109 yards in the win on Saturday, becoming just the second UGA player to rush fopr 100 or more yards in 20 games. The other being Herschel Walker.  Chubb suffered a devastating knee injury at Tennessee on the Bulldogs previous trip in 2015 on the first offensive play of the game. Tennessee fans then mocked his injury last week by hanging deragatory messages written on bedsheets hanging from fraternity houses in Knoxville. Safe to say redemption has been served. 
  • Former Purdue football coach Joe Tiller died Saturday. He was 74. Tiller's death was announced on the Purdue football program’s Twitter account. >> Read more trending news Tiller set the record for most wins in the school's football program. He coached the Boilermakers from 1997 to 2008, where his overwall record was 87-62, ESPN reported. Tiller began his head coaching career at Wyoming.  New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees released a statement to offer his condolences. Brees attended Purdue from 1997-2000 and led the Boilermakers to a Big Ten Championship and Rose Bowl appearance during the 2000 season, according to the quarterback’s official website.
