Stafford #1 Pick On Draft Day


As expected, former Dawg quarterback Matthew Stafford became the number one overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft after being selected by the Detroit Lions.

Stafford's deal was completed Friday evening and erased any doubt that he made the right decision to forgo his senior year at UGA. The six year contract is worth approximately 78 million with 41.7 million guaranteed and immediately makes him one of the highest paid players in the league before he even takes a snap.

The last great Detroit quarterback was Bobby Layne who attended the same high school, Highland Park, in Dallas as Matthew did, will the curse end?

Still waiting to determine where they will play Corvey Irvin, Jarius Wynn, Brannon Sutherland and Dannell Ellerbee.


Joey Lewis' two-out grand slam in the top of the seventh broke a 2-2 tie and lifted top-ranked Georgia to a 6-3 win over Ole Miss in front of 9,232 fans Friday at Oxford-University Stadium/Swayze Field.

Lewis had been in a 1-for-19 slump, but his 13th home run of the season helped give Georgia (33-9, 14-5 SEC) its eighth straight SEC road win as the Bulldogs maintained a 1.5 game lead in the race for the SEC championship.

Men's Tennis

The No. 4 Georgia men's tennis team opened play in the SEC Tournament Friday afternoon with a 4-1 quarterfinal win against the 19th-ranked and host Auburn Tigers at the Yarbrough Tennis Center.

Women's Tennis

Third-ranked Georgia posted a 4-2 win over 15th-ranked Florida in Fayetteville, Arkansas today to advance to the SEC Tournament final for the third year in a row.

Georgia (22-2) will be going for its third straight SEC Tournament crown on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET against either 10th-ranked Tennessee or 26th-ranked Ole Miss.
