Georgia's spring game will take place on April 20.

Georgia announces time, date for 2019 G-Day scrimmage

Around the Dawghouse will bring you daily updates from what people and publications are saying about Georgia, from inside and outside of Athens. 

Georgia football game time, date for 2019 G-Day scrimmage

Georgia previously announced that this year’s G-Day game will take place on Saturday, April 20. On Tuesday, the school also announced a time for the event, which will begin at 2 p.m. ET. A television network for the game has not yet been announced, but last year’s G-Day scrimmage aired on ESPN.

The scrimmage, which has almost always been one of the most attended spring games in the country under Kirby Smart, will have a number of interesting storylines to follow including:

  • How the offense looks under new look offensive coordinator James Coley.
  • If there are any significant changes made to Kirby Smart’s defense after defensive coordinator Mel Tucker left for Colorado.
  • How much work does former 5-star running back Zamir White see? White tore his ACL in August, but he was also the No. 1 running back in the country in the 2018 recruiting. Georgia also brings back D’Andre Swift, Brian Herrien and James Cook at the running back position.
  • Which wide receivers emerge? Georgia has to replace four of its top 5 pass catchers, but has a number of interesting options coming back, including Demetris Robertson.
  • Georgia was one of the youngest teams in the country last season, so which young guys emerge? The Bulldogs are loaded on the front 7 with the likes of Brenton Cox and Channing Tindall.
  • Which freshman stand out? Georgia has 14 early enrollees led by 5-star edge rusher Nolan Smith and 5-star linebacker Nakobe Dean. These guys will have a chance to impress early on in their time at Georgia.

Mike Francesa falls for fake Todd Gurley instagram

Todd Gurley posted a photoshopped Instagram on Sunday showing him swapping jerseys with head referee Bill Vinovich following the controversial ending of the NFC championship game between the Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints.

Legendary New York radio host Mike Francesa however did not realize that Gurley’s post was photoshopped. And Francesa launched into a full blown rant on the post. It ended up being pretty funny, which you can see below.

Francesa then found out shortly after the break that the post had been faked.

Francesa wasn’t the only media personality to fall for the Instagram post, as Michael Lombardi of the Ringer and Athletic also wondered if the post was real.

While the whole situation was pretty funny, hopefully fans aren’t taking about the referees after Gurley’s next game, which will be in the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots.
