Some random notes and observations from Georgia’s win over Vanderbilt and a topsy-turvy weekend in college football …
Brice Ramsey seems to have definitely settled in to the No. 2 QB position for the Dogs (Faton Bauta only got in for one play against Vandy, a 1-yard loss on a keeper), and Ramsey’s initial appearance on the third series of the game was scripted in advance.

This year, the fan festival will move from its longtime home at the Woodruff Practice Fields to inside Sanford Stadium, which will give the many kids who attend the chance to run around [More]

Welcome to the new location for the Junkyard Blawg! In case you missed it, here’s my most recent post …
The other day a Bulldogs fan asked me to look into my crystal ball a bit and predict whether potential Heisman Trophy candidate Todd Gurley will go down in the annals of UGA football as one of the program’s greatest backs.
My answer was that, if he is 100 percent healthy this season and remains that way, he certainly would at least merit being in the conversation.
Gurley definitely is one of the most talented running backs I’ve ever seen playing in Athens. [More]
