The Tereshinski legacy
Why wouldn't he? Why wouldn't a third-generation Georgia Bulldog fantasize about this game, about this opponent, about this venue?

Dawgs try to build on one-game winning 'streak'
This is something new. Georgia heads into the "World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party" with the makings of a winning streak against Florida.

Meyer, Weis both 5-2 but perceptions differ
When Urban Meyer turned down Notre Dame for Florida last December, it was viewed as a major loss for the Irish and a huge victory for the Gators.

Bulldog fans rule in the stores on St. Simons Island
You would think former Georgia Bulldog great Lamar "Racehorse" Davis would be happy to see all the red-and-black clothing.

FLORIDA-GEORGIA PREVIEW
What better way to measure the attraction and history of the Florida-Georgia football series than with numbers?

Revenge served
11: Victories as a coach in the series by Florida's Steve Spurrier, who also wore that uniform number as the Gators' quarterback from 1964 to '66.

Family ties bind 'Dogs
27: Number of sets of brothers, fathers, sons and grandfathers who have played or coached for Georgia in the series.

Herschel the hero
Uniform number worn by Georgia running back Herschel Walker, easily the most dominant player in series history.

Just who is Joe T III?
Joe Tereshinski III will be Georgia's quarterback on Saturday against Florida at Alltel Stadium. He is starting because D.J. Shockley is out with a knee injury.

Troubled Kearney plans to leave team
Georgia freshman linebacker Tavares Kearney, who faced the possibility of university suspension this summer for a confrontation with an instructor, has left the football program.

National attention doesn't intrigue Siler
Even though ESPN GameDay and ESPN2's Cold Pizza are going to be in Jacksonville this weekend for the annual Florida-Georgia game, some of the Gators are hardly even noticing.

Bulldogs Have Confidence In Backup QB
Georgia QB Joe Tereshinski, who will replace injured starter D.J. Shockley on Saturday against Florida, has not had to earn the respect of his teammates this week. He already had that.

UF's Degory has one last shot
University of Florida center Mike Degory is back on the edge, teetering on the brink of frustration and failure.

Shockley-less Dogs could be in for fight
Kentucky is not in the race. Nothing new there. That does not mean there is no race. But it will be over Saturday if Georgia has its way.

Tereshinski faces huge test this weekend
Three days away from the biggest game of his life, Joe Tereshinski III already has passed the first test in life as Mark Richt's quarterback:

GEORGIA NOTEBOOK
Florida coach Urban Meyer clearly is so overwhelmed by his game-planning that he's missed the memo about D.J. Shockley. Although Shockley is not practicing this week and has been ruled out of the game by Georgia coach Mark Richt, Meyer said Wednesday that his team still is preparing to play Shockley.

Gators remain focused despite ESPN coverage
ESPN's "GameDay" and ESPN2's "Cold Pizza" will be in Jacksonville this weekend for the annual Florida-Georgia game, but some of the Gators are hardly even noticing.

He's a tough guy named Joe
When he was just a little boy, Joe Tereshinski III would hang around Georgia football practices watching intently as the Bulldogs prepared for the week's opponent.

Georgia has title on its mind
Perhaps everyone should have seen this coming. If Georgia defeats Florida on Saturday, the Bulldogs will clinch the SEC East Division Championship and a spot in the league championship game on Dec. 3 in Atlanta.

SEC's Slive: APR needs 'to be worked out'
