This past Friday, my dad, brother, and I attended the annual Georgia Football spring game, also known as "G-Day." It was televised on ESPN for the first time in Georgia football history.

Boy, did they pick a low scoring game to come to.

We woke up in our hotel Saturday morning, got ready, went downstairs for the breakfast buffet, and then headed out. The admission for the game was free this year, it usually runs at $5.00 per person, but this year they did a can food drive for a local organization. We went to the store and grabbed some cans before heading over to a few dawg stores to do some fan shopping.

Wild Wings for the win...

Anyway, we sat in the shade at the stadium and watched the first ever, alumni flag football game. The red team won.

Now let's get to some football. It's the Red Team versus the Black Team. The Red Team consisted of the first team offense and the second team defense, and the Black Team consisted of the second team offense and the first Team defense. Pitting the No. 1 offense against the No. 1 defense, and the No. 2 offense against the No. 2 defense.

Joe Cox, Aaron Murray, and Zach Mettenberger were QB'ing the Red Team, and Logan Grey QB'ing the Black Team with a decent running game backing him up.

Now many complained at the lack of an offensive performance, but isn't this what you would want when you have your No. 1 offense going up against your No. 1 defense? I think both sides played well, the game was televised on ESPN, so, of course, you aren't going to let out your whole playbook. We mixed in some trick plays; the game actually started off with a flea-flicked completion to AJ Green.

It's going to be a good year for the Dawgs. Our defense will be phenomenal and offense is stacked with competition at each position. The real test for the Dawgs will be on Saturday, Sept. 5 when the Dawgs head out to Stillwater to play what should be a top 10 Oklahoma State team on the road.
