PODCAST: Hard Left Turn with Brandon Reed and Katie B. (2-20-18)
In Sunday's Daytona 500, very few prognosticator's had Austin Dillon driving to the win, however, that's exactly how it happened, with Darrell Wallace Jr. coming in second. The Great American race was one filled with great American crashes, so much so that nearly half the field was taken out and only 25 cars finished the 2018 season opener. Listen to the podcast for discussions of the race and for highlights from Daytona International Speedway.

FROM DOWNTOWN: The era of ineptitude is over, and Georgia football has its seniors to thank
This time last week I had the final play of the Rose Bowl on repeat. I watched the final play of the National Championship once, live, and that is enough.

FROM DOWNTOWN: Stopping to smell the roses
I didn’t think there was a halftime adjustment good enough to bring the Bulldogs back Monday night. After Oklahoma’s last score of the first half, dejected and slumped on a couch, phone attuned to Twitter, I said aloud to no one in particular, “We’re just getting our (hineys) kicked.”

FROM DOWNTOWN: That Christmas feeling
I know, I know, the Falcons and Saints play meaningful football this weekend, Lanierland starts Thursday and Georgia is in the college football playoff, but let’s put all that on the back burner momentarily, i.e., just humor me.

FROM DOWNTOWN: A Bulldog - and SEC title - a long time in the making
I was a Georgia Bulldog long before I existed. Before you stop reading thinking I’ve gone ’round the existential bend, hear me out. I’m back at work today fresh off a four-day excursion to New Orleans. (Fresh may be stretching it a bit, but for the sake of the bosses out there reading this, I’m Outkast-style fresh and clean.)

EXTRA POINTS: QB1 is now QB2, and more observations from the week in sports
I tweeted out Saturday night that Jacob Eason would not start for Georgia again this season. Twitter's 140 characters don't allow for a lot of explanation, so I need to clear a few things up in the aftermath of saying that Eason shouldn’t or won’t start again this season.
