Will Georgia celebrate New Year's Day with a win?
The Georgia Bulldogs were scheduled to hit Orlando on Wednesday to begin prepping in earnest for their New Year's Day Capital One Bowl matchup against the Big Ten's Nebraska. Coming off a heartbreaking SEC championship loss in which a few yards made the difference between playing for the national title and being passed over for a BCS berth, the Dawgs are looking to close out the 2012 season on a triumphant note. Some analysts think that is likely. "With the way that the Bulldogs left Atlanta, they are looking for redemption and there is not much that the Cornhuskers can do to stop it from being achieved," Ian Berg writes for Bleacher Report. Nebraska was shucked by the Wisconsin Badgers in the Big Ten title game, 70-31, leading Berg to …

If the Bulldogs beat Bama, they're likely headed to Miami to take on Notre Dame for the BCS title.
Well, here we are, on the brink of the SEC championship game in downtown Atlanta, a game that many doubted the Georgia Bulldogs would reach this year, but which could propel them to the contest for the National Championship. The Bulldogs haven't won a national title since they beat Notre Dame in 1980, despite fielding one of the most consistently successful teams in the country. As Dan Wolken of USA Today put it, "There aren't many opportunities to put 30 years of frustration aside as a program, but Georgia is on the doorstep of one of them." To get in the door, the Bulldogs have to defeat No. 2 Alabama, no easy feat. Seth Emerson reports for the Ledger-Enquirer that the teams are pretty evenly matched, with Georgia bringing the nation's …

For the Bulldogs, the hype about a possible national championship has begun.
Georgia's Athletic Director Greg McGarity might have been prescient when he asserted earlier this season that Georgia Tech, and not Florida, is really the Bulldogs' biggest rival. Who would have predicted a month ago that so much would ride on this weekend's in-state matchup? Georgia survived the easier of its back-to-back triple-option challenges by defeating Georgia Southern last week. Now the Bulldogs, suddenly catapulted to No. 3 in the BCS standings, must withstand a visit from Georgia Tech before turning their attention to the SEC Championship game, likely against No. 2 Alabama. And then, maybe, the national title game? Not so fast, says Georgia head coach Mark Richt. “Right this minute, all I can think about is Georgia Tech,” Richt …

A victory Saturday should send the Bulldogs to the SEC championship game.
Auburn's not very good this year. They're still looking for an SEC win, and Georgia might not be the best place to find it. The Bulldogs, while romping through some rough patches, are ranked fifth in the country and need only beat the Tigers to wrap up the SEC East Division and play for the league championship. Of course, Bulldogs coach Mark Richt isn't preparing his team for a cakewalk. "I told the guys `Get your mind right, right now,"' Richt said in an Associated Press story earlier this week. "We know they're capable of knocking us off." The Dawgs will be bringing a depleted receiving corps to Auburn. Marlon Brown was reported out for the season earlier this week after tearing an ACL against Mississippi. And the Bulldogs lost Michael …

The Bulldogs have a new mascot and high expectations going into the 2012 season.
First things first: There's a new Uga in town, and he's got a familiar face. The new Bulldog mascot, Uga IX, is none other than Russ, a frequent interim Uga during the line's tumultuous few years. The Athens Banner-Herald reports that Russ first saw Uga duty in 2009, when his half-brother, Uga VII, died. The selection is not without controversy, as some students the Banner-Herald interviewed are unhappy he's not a direct descendant of the original. Meanwhile, the human Bulldogs are preparing for their 2012 opener against Buffalo with some serious study. ESPN's DawgNation blog reports that coaches and quarterback Aaron Murray are burrowing into old game tapes from Buffalo's new defensive coordinator, Lou Tepper. The Macon Telegraph's Seth …

"We felt like we were being walked on so we walked out," said Editor in Chief Polina Marinova.
An advertising executive has resigned from The Red & Black board of directors. Students will have more input into editorial decisions. And there won't be a non-student review of stories prior to their being published. With all three of their demands met, the former staff of The Red & Black student newspaper may return to their jobs, said editor-in-chief Polina Marinova. Marinova and her staff walked out Wednesday night, fed up with what they believed was too much interference and emphasis on happy, upbeat stories instead of real news about the UGA community. "We'll talk among ourselves and then reapply for our positions," said Marinova. "We're happy they met our demands and that we finally had a voice." The Board of Directors will hire a …

A UGA study shows that people may use social networking sites to boost self-esteem rather than chat with friends.
A new study has found that social networking users may focus more on themselves than on connecting with others. The study was conducted by graduate student Brittany Gentile in the University of Georgia's Department of Psychology, and department head Keith Campbell, along with San Diego State University Professor Jean Twenge. It found that people who log into Facebook may be boosting their self-esteem in the process. Users of sites like Myspace may show also show higher narcissism traits. Researchers conducted the study by randomly assigning college students to edit either their Facebook or Myspace pages, or to do a control task online such as interacting with Google Maps. Those who use MySpace were more likely to show narcissistic …
