Around the Dawgosphere to start your morning.
-- Richt gets incredibly candid and spiritual with the Thomasville Times. He basically says that God talked him into making Mike Bobo the offensive coordinator. I doubt that Richt was the only one praying that he'd stop calling the plays. A guy sitting near me in Sanford Stadium has called CMR "Field Goal Jesus" for years.
-- David Ching and Josh Kendall have both written articles discussing Danny Ware's decision to go pro early. Kendall talks with him about the chip on his shoulder, and Ching talks about the risk that Ware is taking. Personally, there were times when I thought Ware looked like he might become a dominant SEC back, but at other times he looked like he couldn't find a hole with mapquest and OnStar. Ultimately, the fumbles were his enemy. Not the depth chart.
-- Dennis Felton is pursuing a 7 foot Romanian kid living in North Carolina for the 2008 class. His name is Catalin Baciu, and Scout.com lists him as a 4 star type player. Baciu is being recruited by Notre Dame, NC State, Wake, Clemson and VT among others. His none to flattering photo on rivals.com (on the right) reminds me of the quote: "It rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again." (ht - begger)
-- The AJC talks with Dan Inman about his NFL draft chances. During the interview, he was penalized for a holding the reporter.
-- Earlier in the week, David Ching posted some more draft tidbits on Dawg players.
-- The Gym Dawgs advanced to the NCAA Super Six finals. Just as importantly, they beat the Gators to get there. See...we can beat them at something this year.
-- Lastly, Danny Verdun-Wheeler spoke to Wilkes County students about the importance of education and staying in school. While we're talking about photos....does he remind you of Donovan McNabb in that pic? Or is it just me?
That should get your morning started.
