As I mentioned I was going to last week, my fiance and I made the trek over to Athens Saturday night to watch Herschel's MMA debut. I know I could have watched the Showtime fight from the confines of my own home, but just being in Athens seemed to make it all that much better to watch. Say what you want about Walker, but the man is a physical specimen. Just like he did as an 18 year old, he amazed the world with his easy defeat of the overmatched opponent. Who's next?
The Lady Dawgs are on a major slide right now. I gave them their props a few weeks back when they became the first team ever to start the season at 16-0, and now they find themselves amidst a 3 game losing streak. I'm sure Coach Landers will get them back on track come tourney time.
I am eager to see what surprises await us on the recruiting trail over this stretch towards signing day. My number one hope for now is that the Dawgs can land the Whitaker kid from Warner Robins. I think he could be a major force at the nose in this new 3-4 scheme.
The men's basketball team had a minor slide this week, but I think Coach Fox is building something special over there in Athens. Maybe we can go on a run and squeak into the tourney.
Stay tuned this week for my 2nd edition of "Would You Rather" and other exciting stuff!
