TV station may go dark, funded until September By POLINA MARINOVA THE RED & BLACK The University-owned news station, WNEG-TV, is hanging on by a thread. The University of Georgia Research Foundation granted the station $71,390 at a meeting Wednesday afternoon. “This amount is requested

to provide for operating needs through September 2010,” said Holley Schramski, the University’s associate vice president and controller. Michael Castengera, project manager at WNEG, said the money is part of the operating subsidy and will “help cover the expenses” of the station. After the $71,000 were

transferred Wednesday, $111,000 remain from the initial $5 million allocation UGARF made in support of the station. In 2008, UGARF gave Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication a $5 million grant for the purpose of buying the station and relocating it to Grady. The

money was intended to last the station five years. But the total operating expense for fiscal year 2010 was $1.8 million, and the projected revenue of $800,000 could barely cover the $786,000 in staff salaries. The station found itself facing a $1 million deficit. On June 29, UGARF decid-

ed to amend the fiscal year 2010 budget to include $340,000 for the station. “When we did that a couple of months ago, we thought that we were going to be ready with our answers by the end of August,” said Tim Burgess, senior vice president

FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK

The juices were flowing for Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray Wednesday. So much so that he felt “the jitters” and made more than a few overthrows in warm-ups prior to the Bulldogs’ third scrimmage of the fall. When asked how many people were in the Sanford Stadium stands, he laughed. “I don’t know, 40 maybe?” Murray said as senior receiver Kris Durham quipped, “15, 10,” in his quarterback’s ear. “All I know is that there were about 92,700 less than there will be in a few weeks,” Murray said. Georgia head coach Mark Richt wanted to set up a realistic game situation for his team, and Wednesday’s scrimmage served as the perfect dress rehearsal.

“There was nothing earthshattering on the depth chart, but it did have a game day feel for everyone, and everybody got a good taste for it,” Richt said. “It felt like a game. I know I felt it in the locker room, during our pregame routine and during the scrimmage.” Providing “unofficial, official stats” from the scrimmage, Richt was pleased to see several outstanding defensive performances. Senior outside linebacker Darryl Gamble had 8 tackles with two sacks, while senior cornerback Vance Cuff had 6 tackles and sophomore safety Bacarri Rambo returned an interception 66 yards for a score. Offensively, Murray went 9-for17 with 127 yards and one touch-

Athens’ dogs would have made Tyra proud last night, as several shelter dogs took to the runway in a bid for adoption. Hosted by Hotel Indigo and put on by BLVD Magazine, dog lovers all over the city came for a special night of “Canines and Cocktails” in hopes of adopting a furry, slobbery, but loyal companion from True Love Canine Rescue. “I had to go around and get bowties for cute little dogs,” said Andrea Paton-ash, a senior public relations major and intern for BLVD. The formal pooch attire, donated by several local venders such as Bacon Homemade Neckwear, were some of the many raffle prizes owners could slip in their doggy bags. The real award, however, was watching the various breeds of man’s best friend unleashed, out of control, and on all fours, posing adorably for cameras with short attention spans and their vanity fair. “It’s a really good production for a good cause, and it’s a creative idea,” said BLVD photographer and junior international affairs major Hannah Gary. The idea stemmed from former BLVD director, Kristen Rachels, and her collaborations with the magazine. “I just came up with it like that,” she said. “It just seemed like a really fun thing to do,” See PAWS, Page 7

By DALLAS DUNCAN THE RED & BLACK Which came first, the chicken or the egg? In the case of Salmonella enteritidis, the chicken. “It’s a bit different from any salmonella in that it can actually colonize the ovarian tissue of hens,” said Michael Doyle, professor of food microbiology and director of the center for food safety. The salmonella in question caused the recall of 380 million eggs from several farms in the Midwest — so Georgia is not affected. “I believe the ones in Georgia were caught before they went out to the consuming public,” said Scott Russell, professor of poultry processing and products microbiology. “Right now [the recall] is up to about a half billion.” So fear not, students who eat on campus. Those eggs are safe. “The recalled egg issue has not affected UGA Food Services since we do not purchase eggs from the supplier that issued FLOYD the recall,” said J. Michael Floyd, executive director of Food Services. Jeanne Fry, director of Food Services, said every time the Food and Drug Administration or United States Department of Agriculture issue a recall, the University is alerted via e-mail, and Food Services immediately pulls any affected product from the shelves. Floyd said Food Services’ eggs come from the Gainesville area, which is why they are not affected by the recall. “In most cases, food suppliers will pull a product that’s safe,” he said, adding in this case, most of the eggs recalled probably did not actually have S. enteritidis, but instead were pulled to err on the side of caution. Russell said the recalled eggs were produced in May, which meant they were

down pass. “He stepped up and he did a good job,” Durham said. “His passes were on the money and high praises to him. I would say that we are a little ahead of where we usually are and Aaron is getting everything and stepping into a leadership role. He took command and he was getting the formations correct and he was signaling the plays and that’s just a signal of his hard work.” Murray himself said that he could see improvement in his game from earlier scrimmages. “There are still a few rookie mistakes I made, but the main thing is I’m feeling better and I’m feeling more comfortable and I feel like I took a step forward,” Murray said.

CRIME NOTEBOOK Number of reported rapes grows

ONLINE

Police Documents

A 22-year-old female reported a burglary and strong arm rape at 3 a.m. on Aug. 24, according to the Athens-Clarke County Police report. The report states the offender was a male known to the victim, and the “incident is under investigation.� Hilda Sorrow, an ACC public information assistant, told The Red & Black the victim was not a student. There have been 11 rapes and one attempted rape reported by AthensClarke County police since June 14. Motorcycle mishap Scooters may be painfully slow, but the price for upping the engine size is much more costly than being late for a few classes. University student Kendall Wright, 19, was arrested and charged with speeding, driving an unregistered vehicle, driving without a license and failure to comply with insurance requirements at 170 River Road on Aug.

24 at 12:08 p.m. According to the Athens-Clarke County Police report, Wright was arrested after an officer observed her driving 38 mph in a 25 mph zone on a Bashan VIP Super Motor Scooter. After initiating the stop, the officer proceeded to investigate the size of the scooter’s engine. Georgia law states any scooter with an engine larger than 50 cubic centimeters is considered a motorcycle and must be registered as such. Wright’s scooter was discovered to contain a 147 cc engine. Wright then explained she was unaware the motorcycle needed to be registered and insured. When asked for a motorcycle license, Wright only provided a class C driver’s license. The motorcycle was then towed and Wright was transported to Clarke County Jail. — Complied by Jacob Demmitt

WNEG: TV station meant for students ¢From Page 1 for finance and administration. “We’re closer, but we’re not quite finished yet, so we felt like, ‘Let’s extend it for one more month.’ Hopefully, that gives us enough time to make the final decisions we need to make.â€? Burgess said on Sept. 23, he will brief the entire UGARF Board on where the station stands. Until then, the future of WNEG remains uncertain. “It all depends on what option is agreed upon going forward,â€? Burgess said. He said the University’s intent for buying the station and relocating it to Grady was to allow students to take advantage of the hands-on experience. “We had a design and a concept when we bought this thing to begin with,â€?

S The University Research Foundation purchased WNEG in 2008 as a training tool for broadcast news classes. The station’s future is unclear. Burgess said. “And an important part was that this would provide a great resource laboratory for journalism students to get real-life experience, so that was a huge part of what the motivation for getting into this was, and it’s a central part of why we think it’s important.�

John Newsome, a senior majoring in broadcast news, is a production manager for UGA Newsource — the University’s studentproduced television newscast. He said Newsource is broadcast from the WNEG studio, and if WNEG is shut down, Newsource will continue to air.

I don’t think they predicted the economy when they bought the station.� Newsome said whatever decision is made in September, he doesn’t think this will be the last we see of WNEG. “If WNEG doesn’t make it, it won’t go away,� he said. “Too many resources have been appropriated to the station, so it can’t just go away.�

MAN ON THE STREET: Why can’t the Gulf Coast catch a break? Five years ago this weekend, Hurricane Katrina ripped through the historic city of New Orleans and its surrounding areas, leaving in its wake a legacy of pain and mistrust that still lingers today. Earlier this summer, the BP oil spill further damaged the area, forever altering the region’s environment, economy and way of life, with its effects still exact-

“Katrina five years ago was really, really devastating, and it was really bad for the country, and I feel like we’re making improvements towards it.

We’re sending down Red Cross stuff, and I know that I’ve personally been involved in sending money down there.”

“I think a little bit of it has been overshadowed by the oil spill in the Gulf because I think while we can focus on the bad about that, I’d rather focus on the good that has come. But there’s still a lot of rebuilding to do as far as Katrina goes.”

Kenyan hospital receives student aid By KATIE VALENTINE THE RED & BLACK For Nathan Albright and Greg Greene, successful business means changing the world. The two University students are co-presidents of Nourish International, a nonprofit organization present on 23 college campuses nationwide. The group aims to solve poverty-related problems around the world by raising money and sending students to work on projects in impoverished areas. “It’s a new approach to solving the poverty issue,” Albright, a junior from Peachtree City, said. “The point isn’t just to raise money, go over there, do something, then leave — it’s to empower communities.” Rather than collect club dues, different chapters of Nourish International participate in their own business ventures to raise money for their individual projects. This year, the University chapter is raising money to build a hospital, school and orphanage in the town of Katito in the western region of Kenya. The idea began when

EGGS: New standards help keep food safe

Greene, a junior from Marietta, traveled to Kenya last summer and lived and worked with a local doctor in the region. “My first day there, we visited the hospital. There were about 200 patients and one doctor on staff,” he said. Greene said the hospital had no surgical unit and was about 12 miles away from the village he stayed in. The doctor he stayed with, David O’Kongo, has been saving to build a hospital in Katito, along with a school and orphanage. He has already purchased a plot of land for the project, and Greene has kept in touch with him since his trip in order to work out cost and logistical details. “David’s dream is to bring adequate health care to the region,” Greene said. “This project would supply jobs, health care and education. The benefits are numerous.” Through Nourish International, Greene and Albright hope to raise money for the project and send students to Kenya over the summer to help get the project started.

Albright said the University’s chapter tried the hunger lunch venture last year, but it wasn’t very successful due to the large percentage of the campus on the meal plan. This year, the organization plans to try new ventures in hopes of raising more money. Albright said they were considering a recycling competition among the fraternities to see which house could come up with the most aluminum cans. These cans could then be recycled for a return of a few cents each. “We’re also open to a lot of other ideas, and we’re

¢From Page 1 on store shelves before new FDA salmonella regulations went into place. Doyle said the new regulations required producers to purchase chicks from S. enteritidis free farms, which also must have rodent and pest control plans in practice. Once on the producer’s farms, the laying hens and eggs are tested for salmonella as well, Doyle said. “If they find it in the eggs, those eggs have to be diverted,” he said. Diverted eggs are either used in non-food products or pasteurized, Doyle said. In addition, the new regulations require eggs to be refrigerated at 45 degrees no later than 36 hours after they are produced, he said. Symptoms of S. enteritidis include diarrhea, fever and vomiting, Doyle said. “Most people will get better but people who are young, elderly or immunocompromised are more likely to become ill with more severe symptoms,” he said. These more severe symptoms are rare and include dehydration, heart complications and arthritis. Students who eat eggs should still take precautions, such as ensuring eggs are cooked thoroughly, to prevent illness, Russell said. Doyle also advised students to not let raw eggs touch cooked food. He also said eggs should be kept refrigerated. “Students who are on the meal plan or eat on campus should rest,” Floyd said. “The U.S. food system is the safest in the world, even with the food recalls.”

hoping to do something with the local music scene,” Albright said. “Last year, we had a benefit concert and an art auction at New Earth Music Hall that raised a few hundred dollars, so we’re hoping to do something like that again.” Greene said he initially joined Nourish International because he liked the idea of being able to help people in impoverished communities one-onone. “This organization gives you the opportunity to see the work being done and see why you’re doing it,” he said. “You have the opportunity to travel over there and get to know who you’re helping on a human level.” Though the organization hasn’t grown very large in its previous years at the University, Albright and Greene are optimistic about its growth and success this year. “There is a lot of potential for involvement this year,” Albright said. “We want as many people who are passionate about it to come to the meeting.”

Majority opinions of The Red & Black’s editorial board

We’re finished... Through the blood and tears, we have come to a consensus — build it now

We’ve had enough. This week has seen a crescendo of furious discussion and outright shouting. We’ve heard your thoughts. We’ve heard your fears. And we’re ready to tell it how it is. The Ground Zero mosque debate has fed the hatred and fear of Muslim-Americans. What began as a gathering place for community members is now painted as the face of jihadism in America. This panic has brought out that dark side still lurking within many Americans. It’s a side that fears new customs. A side that believes America is a “Christian” nation. A side that blames all Muslims for the horrors of 9/11. America has come to this point many times before. Anti-Semitism, Catholic immigration and women’s rights — all dragged human fears of the unknown to the extremes of violence and hate. The Red & Black editorial board understands the fears of a country that is only now beginning to recover from that fateful day. But we must support the First Amendment, which recognizes that no matter the conflict, freedom of religion must prevail. In 1954, Brown v. Board of Education desegregated schools in America. The U.S. Army was called in to enforce the unpopular ruling. People said and did terrible things out of fear. The right thing to do was not always liked or understood. We must continue to push for an equal society. A society where religion, race and the actions of evil outsiders don’t influence our sense of right and wrong. A society that can separate the evil actions of a few from the peaceful nature of a faith. In our emotional time, we must live up to our reputation as Americans. We must push on through our fear. We must look beyond the Islamophobia splattered across the television sets. Build the mosque. Build it, and this country will once again announce to the world that it can rise above ignorance and distrust. Build it, and move forward. — Courtney Holbrook for the editorial board

NYC mosque not in respectful area

S

eptember 11, 2001. Do you remember where you were? Do you remember how you felt when you discovered that those responsible for the worst attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor were Islamic terrorists, hiding in Afghanistan? Do you remember how you felt for the families who had a loved one either in a building or on an airplane? I realize I sound like Alan Jackson, but it’s a good start. The families will look back, less than three weeks from now, and remember all that their loved ones did and how they died. To put a mosque near there would be a tremendous insult to the almost 3,000 families who lost a loved one, wherever they died. I am part of a certain demographic: a middle class, white, conservative, Christian male. I can take the hate mail for when you think I’m evil. But I am all about the First Amendment, so if you choose to follow a religion different from mine, by all means, go ahead. I believe that Muslims are incorrect in their beliefs, but that’s not the point of this article. The point is that building this mosque is an insult to the families of those who were murdered that day. As a citizen of the

ANDREW COWAN United States, I am free to have this opinion. In the same manner, you are completely free to disagree. But just putting a mosque alone is a terrible idea. Build some kind of remembrance building so that anyone who feels compelled should be able to remember in whatever way feels best for them. So here I am, with a very uneasy load to bear. This is a sensitive situation, and one with two equally indignant sides. Still, we may take opposite stands, but our memory remains the same. This is the construction of an Islamic mosque at the site of the worst Islamic terrorist attack in world history. The President should never endorse the construction of any religious building, no matter what religion it is. I personally dislike the idea of a mosque being built anywhere, much less at a place such as that. But if you can’t play nice with all the other religions, then you can’t play at all. — Andrew Cowan is a senior from Stone Mountain majoring in Management Information Systems

Islamophobia promotes ignorance I

remember the day I stopped being a kid. I was a 12-year-old sitting in my seventh grade social studies class. My teacher turned on the TV, and the image that would become permanently imprinted in my mind came into view. A plane crashing into the Twin Towers, people screaming as a balloon of dark dust engulfed them, and my fellow seventh graders’ faces mirroring my own — confused and scared. I’m sure you have encountered the anti-Islam rhetoric on news stations and the internet since that fateful day. It has been a daily part of my life since I was 12. I know most people are not like them — bigots who prey on the fear of Americans to make me the enemy. The recent furor over whether there should be a mosque near the hallowed ground of the Twin Towers has shown the success of these anti-Islam campaigns. Many have argued that it is disrespectful to the memory of those who lost their lives on 9/11 for Muslims to have somewhere to pray near the area. They must have forgotten about Mohammed Salman Hamdani, an EMT whose body was found next to his medical bag and is thought to have died trying to help those hurt on 9/11. What about Mohammad Chowdhury, whose pregnant wife gave birth to one of the first 9/11 orphans? Or Rahma Salie, who was killed 7 months pregnant along with her husband Michael Theodoridis on American Airlines flight 11 that flew into the

North Tower? I could go on and on. Isn’t it disrespectful to their memory to vilify their faith by blaming their deaths on Islam and not those that killed them? Is it not the ultimate sign of disrespect to not allow their families to come pay their respects and pray near the memorial of their loved ones? What is truly behind this opposition to the mosque near Ground Zero, and most mosques across our country, is clear. It is bigotry in some cases but mostly ignorance about Islam and Muslims. It seems that every minority in our country has had to go through a hazing-like experience of distrust and discrimination — Catholics, Jews and blacks to name a few — to be finally labeled “real Americans.” Why haven’t we learned our lesson? When will being called a Muslim, most recently directed to our president, stop being a slur? And will there ever be a day where Muslim-Americans will be allowed to shed this collective guilt imposed on them for what happened to their country? An expert on Islam nailed it on the head when explaining the Islamophobia that exists in America: “No doubt, some political groups are at war with certain Muslim regimes ... and with the

et’s admit it, we all use Facebook. It’s a great tool for keeping in touch, planning events, and creating groups to talk about our love for chocolate chip cookies. But not everything about Facebook is all roses and jellybeans and rainbows and smiles. No surprise, there are certain aspects of Facebook that will drive you insane. They are even making a movie about it. It’s called “The Social Network.” We can hope for greatness, but I’m doubtful. In the spirit of this ridiculous movie coming out soon, I feel it is my moral imperative to warn you about a couple of these horrors before it’s too late. I’m sure all of us had the same moment of shock when we discovered one of our family members on Facebook. I’m not talking about cousins close to our age, or nieces or nephews. No, I’m talking about the ones that should never be socially network-

West. But some Westerners see the threat from terrorists who are driven by ideology and politics as a threat from a culture and religion,” wrote Jocelyne Cesari, director of the Islam in the West Program at Harvard University and Johns Hopkins University, in a CNN column. Take a look at the countries where most of this ideology is coming from, and you will usually find poverty, instability and a lack of widespread education. This climate is what Osama bin Laden has taken advantage of to brainwash young men to commit the violence needed for his political gains. If it was a Muslim v. NonMuslim ideology, most victims of Islamic extremism wouldn’t be Muslim. The faith I have fallen in love with — no political brainwashing involved — commands its believers to forbid evil and enjoin good. The five pillars of Islam are the foundation of a faith that provides freedom of religion to all humans and calls women the equal halves of men. It allows war only in selfdefense and forbids the killing of those not in battle, women, children and the destruction of buildings. If you want to learn about the true Islam from a practicing Muslim, I’m always willing to have a cup of coffee and answer your questions — American to American.

ing with anyone. That sounds harsh, but my reasoning is sound. Quite frankly, it’s because their three best friends... are cats. And they’re related to you. The only thing more terrifying than discovering them is the realization of where you discovered them. I’ll give you a hint: it’s on your friend request page. What do you do in this situation? Do you rush to your photos and quickly delete every picture containing you doing incriminating things (read: all of them)? Or do you ignore the friend request? No, wait a minute, you can’t do that. The whole wrath of your family would come down around you. You’re going to have to accept them.

Good luck explaining to your Great Aunt Agnes that the picture of you taking a shot from that girl’s bellybutton is actually you performing a new and risky form of CPR. Perhaps even more annoying than pestering family members are those people that for some reason compulsively update their status every fifteen minutes. Oh great, I was really interested in the nature of your bowel movements. Thanks, the fact that you went to the store today ranks exceptionally high on my list of things that I care about. However, the funny thing about these people is that while they are content to give you each detail of their everyday lives, they never ever include enough information when it is actually necessary. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve seen statuses like this one: “The test results came in. I can’t believe this.” Wait, what? Test results? What test did you take? Is it a medical test

or an academic test? Do you have a disease I should be aware of? Can you not believe it because it’s so good, or because it’s so bad? I have to hear about the details of you making pancakes this morning, but this is all you give me regarding potentially important test results? Facebook pages perpetuate the attentionstarved nature of their creators. Now I cannot simply read your useless information and disregard it. I have to fall right into your trap and ask for more information. Please, don’t do this to me anymore. My mind can’t take it. These are only a couple of the annoyances that Facebook can offer you, and it is my sincerest hope that you can avoid them better than I have. After all, I am warning you. Just trust me on this one. It might save your sanity. — Jacob Andrews is a senior from Marietta majoring in English

listen up! Though rare, every once in a while you come across a CD that just seems to resonate excellence before it’s even ripped out of the package. The 180 Degrees South: Conquerors of the Useless soundtrack just so happens to be that kind of album. Featuring the likes of semi-indie-gods Isaac Brock, lead singer “180 degrees South: of Modest Mouse, and Conquerors of the Useless James Mercer, lead singDocumentary Soundtrack� er of The Shins, along with Mason Jennings and Jack Johnson, the amount of pure, raw talent shoved into a single reflective disc is astonishing. Commissioned by adventurer Jeff Johnson, the artists were told to compose a soundtrack to narrate Johnson’s adventure into Patagonia to reach the top of Cerro Corcovado, a mountain in northern Chile. The artists took the time to fly out with Johnson and his crew to Patagonia in an attempt to set a proper mood for the album. After camping under the stars together, each artist seemed to take away something different from the trip. The result is a unique mixture of overly personal, raw emotion that one would only expect from such greats. Each track manages to evoke a unique feeling, causing listeners to experience their own personal moment. Tracks such as “Corcovado,� titled to fit an obvious part of the trek, seems to perfectly illustrate in sound what I can only imagine traveling through Corcovado, Brazil, feels like. Every song performed is melancholy and lyrically meaningful. Each voice on the album is purposeful and ghostly, haunting listeners with images of the rare and the beautiful. The album’s instrumentals are unique and well composed, incorporating an odd array of sounds and genre-influences. Brock’s voice lends a wonderful narration to an unusual journey through an unusual place. The fit is a match made in heaven. The album title “180 Degrees South: Conquerors of the Useless� perfectly summarizes the tone of the album. After listening to this album, I definitely felt like my world was upside down. — Chris DeSantis

Transfer a potential ‘superstar’ for Dogs FOOTBALL: By CHRIS D’ANIELLO THE RED & BLACK The 2010 Georgia volleyball squad returns all six of its starters. Still, junior Lizzie Reid, a transfer from Jefferson Junior College in Missouri, hopes to have a “strong impact” on the team this season. Reid was born in London and grew up to play for Great Britain’s national team in the European Championships before she moved to the United States in 2008 to play for the Jefferson Lady Vikings. Two straight impressive years in Missouri landed Reid scholarship offers around the country, but only one seemed to fit in the end. “Georgia is a great fit for me,” Reid said. “Their level of play, their standards, their style all fit

me really well. My main focus right now is just getting into the same gameplan as the rest of the team.” As a freshman at Jefferson College, Reid posted an impressive 357 kills and added 126 blocks, earning Second Team NJCAA AllAmerican honors. In her sophomore year, she led Jefferson to a conference title and earned herself those Division I looks, including those of Georgia head coach Joel McCartney. McCartney said he pictured Reid fitting in well with his current system and used all his recruting skills as he went after her services before the season. After securing her commitment to the Bulldogs, Reid would complete her transfer to the University in early 2010. “Lizzie has a tremendous amount of potential to become a superstar with our program,”

McCartney said. “We are running on our court as the season proa very up-tempo system, gresses,” he said. “At the which is somewhat new for very least, she is going to her, but she has the level of push everyone daily to athleticism to acclimate to become better.” a faster pace and grow into Reid will compete in her a fierce competitor for us.” first NCAA Division I volThe plans are for Reid leyball match this weekto start the season on the end when the Lady bench as McCartney’s Bulldogs begin their 2010 starting six from the 2009 season at the Deacon season have all returned to REID Invitational in Winstonthe team to play in 2010.

Special team play impresses ¢From Page 1 “As an offense I felt we did a good job, and I felt a lot more comfortable. I know I’m making my reads better, and I know where I’m going with the ball. Now I have to consistently make the throws and the right plays.” For Durham, who missed the entire 2009 season with a shoulder injury, it felt good to be on the field. Of course, 3 catches for 78 yards didn’t hurt either. “I’ve been here so long that I just can’t wait for the first game,” he said. “This is about as close as you can get to one, just being in the stadium and having the warm-ups and pregame everything, and I’m just looking forward to next Saturday. Really looking forward to it.” Special teams star Special teams were one of the stars of the show Wednesday, highlighted by a Marlon Brown scoopand-score off a blocked punt. “I don’t know if he blocked it,” Richt said. “But he made a great play.” Return man extraordinaire Branden Smith made a couple of impressive kick returns, highlighted by a 63-yard punt return in which he nearly scored. Richt names captains for the season opener When the Dogs do finally tee it up between the hedges against the real Louisana-Lafayette, and not their scout team, the captains have been named. Seniors Shaun Chapas, Demarcus Dobbs, Vance Cuff and Fred Munzenmaier will all don the white “C” for the opener. As is customary for Richt, designated captains change each game.
