Decade Of The Dawg

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:

-Team Feeling
-Thirteen Reasons
-Bulldogs Post 2009 Season
-Top 10 Team
-Todd Grantham

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!

    I'm not sure you can claim the "rights" to that phrase or not...and I'm not sure it really matters enough to do so. But, if you feel the need to claim it then I don't think anyone really cares enough to dispute it. You never know though..personally I used that phrase in a comment on your blog the other day and have for some time prior to that, and have never looked at your blog prior to the other day...

    Do what you got to do Big Dawg...

    I agree with all your bullet points above, but one thing that has bothered me is some of the fan base, and the bashing of coaches and players...I hope that they understand our boys are out there leavin it all on the field. As for the staff, Coach Richt is THE man for the job and if he wants someone on the staff then in my mind he's the man for the job too. There's not another coach in the nation I'd personally rather have than Coach Richt. Everyone needs to stay grounded and keep in mind that there will be some growing pains with this transition, but as a whole we will be a much better team in the days, months, and years to come!

    Who's that comin down the tracks?! A mean machine in Red and Black! GO DAWGS!

    I take that back..I have read your blog before the other day. I just didn't recognize the name I that I see your pic I know I have. I'm a headline guy and pick 'em up off of The Dawgbone. It's the place for he daily Dawg fix!

  3. The only part of this that I have to really disagree the part where you call me insightful.
