I have used this term Decade of the Dawg quite a few times in the past month here at UGABlog. I'm not sure if anyone own's the rights to it or not, but I haven't heard of it before I started posting it.
Yesterday, a very insightful reader (Ben Dukes) suggested I elaborate on the concept just a bit more. I'll start off by linking you to a few posts I have made that were tagged with my Decade of the Dawg catch phrase:
-Bulldogs Post 2009 Season
-Top 10 Team
After reading through those posts, you may be bored to death, so I will try to sum up this post with just my top reasons of today that this is The Decade of The Dawg!
1) The foundation has been set by a great coach, and he has made the necessary changes to begin this decade.
2) UGAs recruiting is solid, was solid, and seems to be getting even more solid.
3) We have a fan base that supports our coach even when we may not exactly agree with him (yikes, at least 100 of you thought I hated Richt yesterday, but I LOVE HIM).
4) We are over due for a few National Championships, so the players and coaches are hungrier than I have seen them in years!
