Hey, Bulldog Nation - hope you all had a great and relaxing weekend. It was relatively slow around here as finals are underway and many of our coaches are on the recruiting trail in this downtime. But here are a few nuggets for your Monday morning:
*Georgia will watch 39 of its student-athletes receive UGA diplomas on Friday at graduation. More here.
*The Georgia football team held its annual awards banquet and gala Saturday night at the Classic Center in Athens. Several players walked home with awards, including Aaron Murray and Jarvis Jones as MVP's on their respective sides of the ball. Full release here.
*The Lady Bulldogs held their annual "bike build" Saturday afternoon, assembling bicycles that would then be donated to needy children in the community in time for the holidays. Read the story here, and stay tuned for a video on the event coming soon to Georgiadogs.com.
*Men's golf coach Chris Haack is being inducted today in the Golf Coaches Association of America's Hall of Fame.
Also, tickets are still available for the Capital One Bowl. Purchase them through UGA to make sure you are in the right section at the game, and to avoid counterfeit tickets. Call the ticket office at 1-877-542-1231 M-F 8:30-4:30, or click here.
Finally, both basketball teams are back in action at home later this week, with the men taking on Iona on Saturday at 5 PM in Stegeman and the women looking to continue their unbeaten start vs. Lipscomb Sunday at 2 PM here.
