The Georgia WONDER-Dawgs are now one of those teams we'll always reference. The only thing I regret is that I watched on TV and wasn't covering the championship run in person. I think back to some upsets I've seen with my own eyes and this UGA run is right there. I remember my sprint from the rightfield corner of Fulton County Stadium to interview Sid Bream while his fellow Braves were still on top of him in a championship pile. I remember throwing my mic in the face of Antonio Langham while his teammates still had him on their shoulders in the Superdome after Alabama beat Miami. I was shocked when Terry Bowden grabbed my mic and screamed "NATIONAL CHAMPIONS" after Auburn's 11-0 season in 1993. I was there when Dale Earnhardt won Daytona for the first time and when Auburn finished perfection in 2004. This Georgia team is now in that class.

  • Dennis Felton was “DEAD MAN COACHING” until the Georgia championship run. My question, if they lose in the 1st round, do you keep him? (Answer: Yes)

  • Enter the Dunaway and Brown, CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS Bracket Challenge for BIG Prizes and BIG Fun. Click here for official brackets, here for the rules. Don’t forget to join us at CHARTER (directions) for a live show Wednesday 1-6pm to drop off your brackets, enjoy some food and shoot some hoop on some goals we’ll have set up.

  • I’ll give you my completed bracket right here in this spot on Wednesday, until then here are some thoughts:

  • Tennessee got ripped off! The Vols are the #2 seed opposite of national #1 North Carolina…PLUS they are going to play here in Birmingham, the only Southern City that hates the Big Orange more than most.

  • East Region: North Carolina will win, but Washington State is a real threat

  • South Region: Watch out for Pitt

  • Midwest Region: I’m already sick of hearing about OJ Mayo vs. Michael Beasley. Clemson is a scary team… and don’t sleep on Davidson.

  • West Region: UCLA again gets the easiest road to the Final 4. Xavier has to like their draw.

  • UAB will beat VCU in the NIT and then lose at Virginia Tech

  • Tony Stewart getting dumped by Kevin Harvick was not that big a deal, just racing at Bristol. Glad to see Childress Racing going 1-2-3. Jeff Burton is a nice guy (the only driver EVER to wake up and join me on the 5-7am news. He was live with me TWICE)

  • Tyler Hansbrough hits game winner for North Carolina… it was retire my jersey good… but the celebration was horrible… dude looked like Herman Munster celebrating good news from Lilly or little Eddie.

  • Watch Clemson (beat Duke) in NCAA Tournament

  • Hey Jacksonville State… HIRE PHILLIP PEARSON and let him recruit talent for the Gamecocks.

  • Forget Bulldogs, Forget Underdogs, they are WONDERDOGS!

  • What Georgia did today is amazing. They bounce Kentucky and then bounces Mississippi State…both are NCAA Tournament teams. Georgia now plays Arkansas… if they beat them they would have beaten 3 tournament teams in 27 hours and of course they would be a tournament team with the automatic bid.

  • Nobody grew up more than Swansey, game winner against Big Blue, big hoops in the nightcap.

  • How ‘bout them Dawgs just playing two games in one day?

  • I hope Joe Dean Jr. keeps announcing… I still love hearing, “Plays a little String Music Timmy B for the Georgia Dawgs!”

  • You would think Georgia would have lost their composure, having played two games in one day, but it was Mississippi State that lost their composure. Charles Rhodes gets a technical with 7.6 seconds, and Georgia did it without Gaines and Bliss.

  • Forget that Georgia is the first 6 seed to go to the Championship game… they are the first team in SEC Tournament history to win TWO GAMES IN ONE DAY.

  • Dennis Felton said he sold his players on just making history. They hadn’t beaten Kentucky ever in the SEC Tournament…ever! Georgia hadn’t been to the semi-finals in 11 years.

  • They beat Mississippi State with no scouting, no practice, and no prep.

  • I wake up Saturday morning, turn on my TV and see Kentucky playing Georgia on the campus of Georgia Tech... Initial thought, UK and UGA should be prepared for the atmosphere; the crowd looked like Beard-Eaves.

  • You hear me say it all the time, the Refs have to call the game the same in the final 10 seconds as you do any other 10 seconds of the game. Kentucky got jobbed with the no call after the Georgia 3-pointer put them ahead with 1.2 seconds remaining. It's a designed play that worked perfect for UK, but as usual, the refs call the final seconds differently.

  • Watching the game, where only official travel party and family members were allowed in the arena... I noticed Kentucky players have A LOT of middle-aged white guys in their family tree. Is it possible, UK snuck a few extra people in the gym (Big Blue wouldn't do that) Kentucky fans did out number UGA fans 3-to-1.

  • Bobby Knight has a purple paisley shirt under his sweat shirt today... I didn't know Bristol had psychedelic dance bars?

  • Great job Friday night by the Raycom crew, including my friends Joe Dean and Buzz Baker. I have friends who are tech guys on that crew (Todd Greene and others) and they covered the breaking news with the storm as good as or better than the CNN's of the world.

  • I like the Wendell Hudson hire as women's basketball coach at Alabama. I have already gotten e-mails from Bama fans that are not happy because he hasn't coached since 1986. Here are my thoughts: The guy was an All-American player (probably knows the game pretty good) Played in the NBA/ABA (better experience than playing women's basketball in college and then in the WNBA) and then he has coached for over at decade all over college basketball. Also, don't underestimate his ties with the Junior college system in Texas... how do you rebuild a program as bad as Bama’s quickly... how about tapping into the school where you were AD for 6 years in Waco Texas and all the other friends you made in that system. State recruits and JUCO infusion = quick turnaround. I'm just saying.

  • Nice job RAYCOM… now let’s go HD for football this fall.

    - Dunaway Out for now
