We here at DudeYouCrazy.net have spent the last 8 months raising awareness about Georgia football’s 2014 season, but it occurred to me as I enjoyed the last football-free Saturday afternoon of the year that we perhaps hadn’t done enough.
Today, that changed.
As first started by a brave man named David Roberts, I was challenged by my buddy Grant to chug a beer to raise awareness that Georgia was set to curbstomp Clemson a week from today. Curious, I had to check the replay for proof:
Sure enough, my awareness of the serious task at hand for the Dawgs was raised, and I felt obligated to step up to the plate. I’m not in pads at training camp in the 100-degree Georgia heat, so I had to ask myself: have I done my part? The answer was no. Until now.
Pardon my weak chug, the beer was quite foamy at the start. Among the people I challenged, DudeYouCrazy.net EIC Andrew Hall. Let’s see if he steps it up.
In the meantime, if you feel as if you need to do more to raise awareness of next week’s whoopin’, get your favorite frosty beverage and post it with the hashtag #DawgNationCBC. I’ll find the best and post them.
Bad news: this is our last offseason Hangover of 2014. We’ve had fun, we’ve made fun of things, we’ve had guests, we’ve made fun of those guests. Bottom line, we had a good run, but all good things must come to an end.
Good news: OH MY GOD FOOTBALL IS BACK.
Join us below as we sign off for the Hangover for the last time this year, have a little extra fun, and get ready for football Saturdays to start bringing in the REAL hangovers.

According to Andrew, yesterday was a pretty big day for Georgia’s 2016 recruiting haul, as they secured commitments from two five-star recruits. Bringing in a top-flight QB early in a recruiting cycle is always huge for momentum, as they tend to be ring leaders among their recruiting class peers. This is all great news.
Unless…we’re being taken for a ride by our fearless leader.
What do you see here? For my money, I can’t get past the fact that this Jacob Eason character is, in fact…
But why? Why would Andrew do this?
Two theories I can think of, which are intertwined: first, Andrew is a diehard Georgia football fan. I don’t know the nature of his relationship with his wife, but if he loves her more than Georgia football, the man has a heart the size of Sanford Stadium. Getting word of a ‘commitment’ from a Stafford-esque QB out 19 months before Signing Day 2016? A great way to drum up some long-term recruiting success for the Georgia program.
The issue here is, I have seen Andrew throw a football. So either he’s been doing a LOT of training behind the scenes, or Mark Richt, Mike Bobo, and recruiting evaluators nationwide missed the mark on this ‘prospect’.
The fact that Andrew moved recently? Ties right in to this elaborate ruse. All ATLiens will admit to seeing less of Andrew in recent months, and between an intense training schedule and high school classes in Washington state, it all starts to piece itself together.
Secondly, at DudeYouCrazy.net, we claim not to care about being ‘sources’. In the wake of the Tray Matthews story, Daniel, Jason, and I realized that being the purveyor of new information isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Andrew, on the other hand? Well, frankly it changed him. He has the unquenchable bloodlust to provide breaking information, accuracy be damned. I have the transcript of his conversation with ESPN’s Chris Broussard, who called and congratulated us for breaking the Matthews news.
You were a schemer, you had plans, and look where that got you. Nobody credited you for TriggaTray’s dismissal news. I just did what I do best. I took your little plan and I turned it on itself. Look what I did to the newscycle with a few anonymous sources and a couple of informal GM polls. Hmmm? You know… You know what I’ve noticed? Nobody panics when things go “according to plan.” Even if the plan is horrifying! If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, Adrian Peterson is retiring, or Kevin Durant is being traded to the Lakers, nobody panics, because it’s all “part of the plan.” But when I say that one little Miami mini-dynasty will die, well then everyone loses their minds! Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I’m an agent of chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It’s fair!
We thought we had Hall’s sourcelust bottled up. We kept him busy with SEC previews, Daily Doses of Dawg, and his normal DudeYouCrazy.net siterunner duties. We thought this problem would go away if we ignored it. Never in a million years did we think Hall was capable of this: emerging as a 5-star QB prospect, convincing recruiters everywhere that he was from the Pacific Northwest, and then committing at Dawg Night— and doing it all so he could break the news.
Boy, were we wrong. Please accept a formal DudeYouCrazy.net apology from me, Chad Floyd.
Georgia Football: Bachelorette Spoiler! Josh Murray and Andi Dorfman’s Conversation in the Fantasy Suite
We’ve obtained a transcript of a conversation between former Dawg Josh Murray and Andi Dorfman in the Fantasy Suite episode of The Bachelorette. Obviously: SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
Josh: [Hugging Andi, staring deeply into her eyes] I’ve been waiting a long time for this.
Andi: [Flirting] Have you? How long have you been waiting?
Josh: All season. All season long. I’ve been wanting this as long as I’ve been here.
Andi: Well that’s a bit forward!
Josh: What can I say? I’m all about some Fantasy!
Andi: Oh, are you?
Josh: Oh I am. You’re about to find out. Where’s that couch? [Makes a strong, athletic move toward the sofa.]
Andi: Slow down, cowboy.
Josh: Oh, I’m not a cowboy. I just play one in strip clubs on group dates. I’m a former professional baseball player. [Unzips pants, pulls out surprisingly well-concealed laptop.]
Josh: Let’s get down to Fantasy. I got offered Jose Abreu for Robinson Cano outright. I mean it’s a classic power vs. consistency play. And I’d be lying if I told you I couldn’t use Abreu’s homers and RBIs.
Andi: Wait what?
Josh: Oh I just jump in with my Fantasies, babe. No foreplay here. Ain’t no Fantasy as sweet [Winking to emphasize the Fantasy Suite pun] as Fantasy Baseball.
That’s all I got/
