It's G-Day in the Classic City! This marks the completion of spring practice with a glorified scrimmage between the famed 'Hedges'. It is expected to be attended by 25,000 to 35,000 of your closest friends, this of course depending on the weather. Most of these above mentioned thousands have followed spring drills through the states news publications as well as UGA blog sites (I have some great ones listed for you under 'Links' to the left), and now they are ready to check out new players, the progression of older players, and the overall state of the Dawgs on the field. Some fans attend to get an early look at a particular newcomer (perhaps Caleb King) , others to see the status of a unit (perhaps the offensive line), still others just to be in Athens, tailgate, and see the Dawgs again. I personally would like to see Caleb King showcase that enormous talent, see the offensive line execute without mental mistakes, and see freshman running back Richard Samuel. All of this of course, injury free. However, when all of this is said and done, the best thing about G-Day is that it brings us closer to summer camp, and ultimately August 30 versus Georgia Southern. I, along with thousands of my closest friends, can't wait!
