Miller’s #7 Georgia Bulldogs vs WCS HQ’s Tennessee Volunteers… Guys, I tell ya, the game itself is going to be one for the ages.
And we could talk X’s & O’s (totally not an Elle King reference), but I’m sure Miller will get into that tomorrow so I’ll take an angle on this that most of my colleagues in the media are too scared to take…
“SMOKEY X” (left) vs. “UGA X” (right)
Both canine representatives here have a decent amount of experience under their collar, with Smokey X having been the Vols mascot since 2013, and UGA X running the show since 2015.
However, UGA X has one HELL of a record at 12-5, whereas Smokey X has endured some tougher years, sitting only 4 games above .500 at 21-17.
I’m not going to lie, this one is tough. They both seem like really genuine “good boys” and looking at their careers, it’s tough to make the decision of who gets the edge… Then I remembered a couple distinct memories of these dogs and their lineage.
UGA has been known to intimidate the opposition from time to time… We can take it back to 1996 when UGA let an opposing Auburn player know to BACK THE FUCK UP.
However, tomorrow’s game is being played in Knoxville. And everyone knows that Smokey is gonna protect his house.
Way back in 2006, when some jackass Alabama wideout during warmups went up for a ball in the endzone and came crashing down on the dog… OF COURSE Smokey bit at him!!
Now, I know for a FACT Blueticks will bite your face off for much MUCH less… But that’s not the point. The point is, Smokey was protecting his house.
I think given the home field advantage and that beautiful howl, I’m going to go with my heart and pick Smokey X… Both great GREAT dogs though.
Now let’s get out there and see who wins the dog fight!! And no, not that kind @MichaelVick…
