  • Welcome to Good Day, UGA , your one-stop shop for Georgia footballnews and takes. Check us out every weekday morning for everything you need to know about Georgia football, recruiting, basketball and more. The 5 most important games on Georgia's 2019 football schedule Georgia football figures to play one of the tougher 2019 schedules in all of college football. To go along with the usual rigors of an SEC schedule the Bulldogs also have a huge home against a Notre Dame team that took part in last season's College Football Playoff. Every game is important for Georgia this season, but some are more so than others. Below we've ranked the top-5 games on Georgia's schedule in terms of importance to both the 2019 season and what it could possibly mean for future seasons. We should also note that these are only games currently on Georgia's schedule, so a hypothetical SEC championship game is not on here. Because as talented as Georgia's 2019 team is expected to be, it's no guarantee the Bulldogs make it back to Atlanta. Related: Game times, TV Networks announced for Georgia's first three games 5. Texas A&M, Nov. 23, Athens, Ga. This game comes following a brutal three-game stretch that sees Georgia play Florida, Missouri and Auburn. It's the Bulldogs final SEC game of the 2019 campaign, and the SEC East title could still be on the line going into this game. Texas A&M is one of the more fascinating teams in college football this year. They have a lot of intriguing talent led by quarterback Kellen Mond but the Aggies also play a brutal schedule as they play the Bulldogs, Alabama and Clemson this season. This game could be used to cross compare the Bulldogs to the Crimson Tide and the Tigers. This game will also be the final home game of the 2019 season. That means it will be senior day for the likes of JR Reed and Charlie Woerner. But this could also be the final game in Sanford Stadium for some talented juniors like D'Andre Swift, Andrew Thomas and even possibly Jake Fromm. That alone should make this an extra special Saturday in Athens. Related: ESPN, NFL draft expert expect Jake Fromm to be one of the top players in 2020 NFL Draft 4. At Tennessee, Oct. 5, Knoxville, Tenn. Kirby Smart really got the ball rolling in his second season with a road win over Notre Dame. That was the first tangible sign he was building something special with Georgia. It ultimately led to a College Football Playoff appearance and fast-tracked Georgia to joining college football's elite. I'm not saying a Tennessee win over Georgia would be a sign of things to come for the Volunteers, but it would definitely offer some serious validation to what Jeremy Pruitt is building in Knoxville. Most knowledgable Georgia fans would probably argue that Tennessee is the biggest long-term threat to Georgia, and a home win over the Bulldogs would certainly indicate that. The last time Georgia went to Knoxville, it came away with a 41-0 win in a game where Jake Fromm had fewer than 100 yards passing. It won't be quite that easy this time around, as Georgia won't be able to waltz through Tennessee now that Butch Jones isn't around. Related: ESPN labels the game Georgia football fans need to beware of for 2019 season 3. At Auburn, Nov. 16 Auburn, Ala. For all that Smart has done so far in Athens, he is still yet to play a competitive road game against an SEC West team. In each of his three seasons as head coach, Georgia has lost by at least 20-points when visiting an SEC West foe. This season the Bulldogs visit Auburn. It comes during the aforementioned tough November stretch. The Tigers once again figure to have a strong defense with defensive tackle Derrick Brown returning for his senior season. And whatever questions there might be about the quarterback position, Auburn should have those answered by what will be its 10th game of the season. This game will offer Smart an opportunity to show that he's grown as a coach. Beating Auburn on the road would be another milestone for him to cross off his list. And given Gus Malzahn's ever-constant hot seat, a loss at home to Georgia could really turn up the pressure on the Auburn coach. 2. Notre Dame, Sept. 21, Athens, Ga. This game has been potentially earmarked as an 8 p.m. kickoff by CBS. You can imagine College GameDay will strongly consider visiting Athens for this possible top-5 matchup. ESPN has already called this game the best non-conference matchup of the 2019 season. Regardless of whether or not you think this will be a close game for Georgia the advanced stats suggest it might not be it will absolutely be a chance for Georgia to make a statement early in the 2019 season. Notre Dame will be plenty motivated coming into this game, especially after a what several Georgia players tweeted during last season's College Football Playoff. If the Bulldogs truly want to prove they're on the same level as Clemson and Alabama, beating Notre Dame would go a long way to justifying those comparisons. 1. Vs. Florida, Nov. 2, Jacksonville, Fla., This game will likely pit the top two teams in the SEC East against each other, and decide who represents the division in the SEC championship game. But that is not why this is the most important game on Georgia's 2019 schedule. These two schools and fan bases have been lobbing shots at each other all offseason long. Whether it be Dan Mullen using the Florida spring game to troll Georgia's championship drought, or seemingly every Georgia commitment in the past month naming Florida as a finalist to only end up picking the Bulldogs, it is clear that these two teams utterly despise each other. When the Bulldogs won this game last season, they showed off some rare video of Smart really celebrating the win. If the Bulldogs beat Florida and Mullen for a third straight season, you can imagine a similar celebration will take place in Jacksonville. If not, it is going to be an incredibly long offseason for Georgia in 2020.

  • CHICAGO (AP) - Willson Contreras wasn't happy with a called second strike in the second inning. He took his displeasure out on the next pitch, hitting it out of the park. Contreras homered and had three RBIs, Jon Lester pitched five-hit ball through six innings and the Chicago Cubs beat the Atlanta Braves 8-3 Monday in a chippy matchup of NL division leaders. 'It's fun, because they're good and we're good,' Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. 'Monday night at 7:05 (p.m.), and to have that kind of an attitude or atmosphere is outstanding. That's what baseball needs.' Jason Heyward added a solo homer for Chicago, which moved one game ahead of Milwaukee in the NL Central. Lester (7-5) allowed two unearned runs and struck out seven. The Cubs strung together five straight hits in a five-run fifth inning to break the game open. Kyle Schwarber doubled into the ivy to score Carlos Gonz lez. Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Javier B ez and Contreras followed with RBIs. Tempers flared in the second inning when Contreras homered to right, giving the Cubs a 1-0 lead. Contreras turned to Braves catcher Tyler Flowers after the ball left his bat, and while rounding first base, gestured toward Atlanta's dugout and thumped his chest. Contreras and Maddon downplayed the incident. Contreras was questioning a called strike that he felt was outside the zone. 'I just tell (Flowers) to do his job and I do mine,' Contreras said. 'To be honest, those pitches weren't even close to the strike zone. He got mad because I was talking to the umpire about that, and he jumped into the conversation.' Contreras and Flowers exchanged words as he returned to the dugout. Heyward escorted Contreras back to the dugout, and Teheran approached the third-base line. The benches cleared, umpire John Tumpane warned both teams and players congregated on the third-base line. No blows were exchanged. 'I think it died down as soon as it was over,' Braves manager Brian Snitker said. 'It was just a couple of catchers going at it a little bit.' B ez singled and stole second to lead off the fourth before Contreras made it 2-0. Contreras' single glanced off shortstop Dansby Swanson's glove and ricocheted into center field as B ez raced home. Teheran (5-6) was roughed up for the second consecutive start. He allowed six runs in four innings last Tuesday against the Mets. Nick Markakis drove in two runs with a single in the sixth inning. Swanson hit a towering solo homer in the seventh off Tony Barnette, who made his Cubs debut after being activated from the 60-day injured list. Atlanta lost for the sixth time in 20 games. KIMBREL WATCH Closer Craig Kimbrel will pitch in another game at Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday. Then Cubs management will evaluate his progress. He could be activated later this week. 'There's certainly a chance that at the very end of this homestand or early on the next road trip we could be seeing him,' president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said. TRAINER'S ROOM Braves: Manager Brian Snitker said it's unclear if rookie RHP Mike Soroka (right forearm) will make his scheduled start Friday against the Mets. Soroka was hit by Washington's Austin Voth in the third inning of Sunday's game. Snitker said Soroka had an 'extensive forearm workout' Monday and could play long toss Tuesday. Cubs: RHP Brendan Morrow (offseason elbow surgery) was set to pitch a third bullpen session at the Cubs' training facility in Mesa, Arizona, on Monday. ... RHP Kyle Hendricks (right shoulder inflammation) tossed 15 pitches on Monday and is expected to throw a bullpen session later this week. Epstein said he could return by the All-Star break. UP NEXT BRAVES: LHP Max Fried (8-3, 4.03 ERA) takes the mound Tuesday. Fried allowed one hit in six shutout innings against the Cubs on April 4. CUBS: RHP Adbert Alzolay (1-0, 2.25 ERA) makes his first big-league start Tuesday. He tossed four innings in relief Thursday against the Mets. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
  • ATLANTA (AP) - Cam Reddish is looking forward to playing for the Atlanta Hawks after he was hampered by a groin injury during his one season with Duke. The 19-year-old Reddish joins a promising young core with Atlanta that also includes Trae Young and John Collins after he was selected by the Hawks with the No. 10 pick in the NBA draft. Former Virginia star De'Andre Hunter also is headed to Atlanta once its draft-day trade with New Orleans becomes official next month. 'It's truly a blessing and a dream come true,' Reddish said Monday at the Hawks' training facility. 'The city of Atlanta is so beautiful. I'm just really happy to be here. 'I think it's a perfect fit in a way.' Reddish was one of college basketball's top prospects heading into last season. But his stock slipped a bit after he averaged 13.5 points on 35.6 percent shooting with the Blue Devils, filling a supporting role behind fellow freshmen stars Zion Williamson and R.J. Barrett. Reddish's commitment level was called into question during the run-up to last week's draft. But the 6-foot-7 swingman from Norristown, Pennsylvania, said he has a laid-back personality and was bothered by a minor groin tear during his short stay at Duke. The injury shelved Reddish for the Blue Devils' preseason Canada tour last summer. It also kept him out of an NCAA Tournament game. 'It was kind of nagging me the entire season,' Reddish said. Reddish recently had surgery to address the issue. He will miss the NBA's upcoming summer league while he recovers from the procedure. Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk said he felt Reddish fit what they are trying to do after watching him for years. 'We've had the opportunity to see him many times playing for USA Basketball, playing on the AAU circuit and then playing at Duke last year,' Schlenk said. 'So, he's a guy that we've seen for several years. We're looking for guys that are multidimensional, multi-positional.' Coach Lloyd Pierce envisions Reddish taking pressure off Young as a ballhandler. On the other end of the court, Pierce is looking forward to incorporating Reddish's 7-1 wingspan into a defense that last season was one of the NBA's least efficient. 'I think defensively is where you get excited ... The more playmakers and facilitators you can put on the floor, the better your team is, and we saw the amount of attention Trae will get,' Pierce said. 'We saw it late in the year, and we'll see it more next year.' Reddish thinks the Hawks can make the playoffs after finishing with the NBA's fifth-worst record last season at 29-53. 'I definitely feel like it's a possibility. It all starts with our chemistry,' Reddish said. '(Young is) a phenomenal, phenomenal player. Just talking to him made me feel really good.' ___ More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/NBA and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
