Within a couple hours yesterday afternoon the Dawg Nation spent an eternity on Mount Ecstasy. Gurley committed and then all remaining draft eligible players that were even mildly interested in the NFL decided to stay in Athens.
I harkened back to that day in early 2004 when David Pollack had a press conference to commit to his fourth season as a Dawg. Except that if that day was euphoric, yesterday was like a weeklong hot streak at the track. The good news just kept coming. It was impossible to keep up with, but I sure enjoyed trying.
Once I had settled into my weekend with a glass of bourbon on the deck, it began to sink in. Our juniors made a statement yesterday. There were a LOT of fans that received the message. For now, I will assume the underclassmen did as well.
The energy bus has achieved nuclear fusion y'all. Hang on tight.
