Let's make sure we double check this list. UGA's checklist for beating Boise State.

The Georgia Bulldogs have a tall order to fill in order to beat the Boise State Broncos. There is a checklist that can be followed that was provided by the Nevada Wolfpack. This is that list:
  1. Have a star dual-threat accurate passing quarterback - The Wolfpack had Colin Kaepernick, and the Bulldogs have Aaron Murray.
  2. Have multiple power and speed running backs - The Bulldogs feature three running backs with power and speed: Richard Samuel, Ken Malcome and Isaiah Crowell.
  3. Don't have one receiver for the defense to key on - The Bulldogs have multiple receiver threats in 2011, and tight end Orson Charles may be the team's best receiver at 6'3" and 240 pounds.
  4. Have very large tight ends with high skill level - Georgia is known for its tight ends. The Bulldogs have the top tight ends in the country.
  5. Make sure your offensive line has no one under 300 pounds but is still athletic -Georgia's offensive line actually outweighs Nevada's 2010 line by 115 pounds.
  6. Have a very strong and fast defense - Georgia will have one of the top defenses in the SEC this year. The SEC has the best defense in the NCAA.
  7. Be able to play two senior special team players. Georgia has the best kicker/punter combo in the nation. 

     Boise State will have to play very aggressively to stay in this game. Georgia already has all the pieces to win; they just need to follow this checklist.

    The Erk Russell Bloody Helmet Shirt's Are Sold Out

    Nike needs to start printing up some more of the Erk Russell tribute shirts. By midnight every small, large, x-large, and xx-large Nike Georgia Bulldogs 2011 Pro Combat Rivalry Performance T-Shirt with the picture of the Bulldog's helmet with blood dripping from it had sold out online.
    There will be shirts sold at some retailers as soon as tomorrow, but they will likely also sell out fast. Word is that these will be the only ones they print, so if you want one you need to call your local Foot Locker, Dick's or Hibbet Sports this morning to see if they get them and if they do you need to find out if they are gone.
    As a little side note, if you want more proof that Nike went with an Erk Tribute for these shirts look at the back. Doesn't that look a little familiar?  "Get After It" sure does sound a lot like "Get After Their Asses" and I could see why they wouldn't write the latter.
    Maybe, if Nike is smart, they might see the profitability of reprinting these shirts and they could even think about changing the back from "Get After It" to "GATA". I sure as hell would buy one then.

    The Facemask IS a Tribute To Erk Russell, Brandon Pledger Was Right All Along, Here is The Proof!!

    So it seems that I was right all along, Nike released the threads for the game against Boise State and it looks like there is blood dripping from face mask directly below the stripe.
    Now I don't want to cause a ruckus but I was suspended from Bleacher Report because of this and I had a Twit fight with Anthony Dasher. I just want my name to be cleared, I don't want people to think that I made up the info that I received.
    If I could just get 20 new followers on twitter over this that would be reason enough to write this. Please let's make this a positive thing for the uniform again and let's embrace the tribute to Erk Russell's bloody forehead.
