A Lineup Note: Juwan Parker sat out Georgia's game against Morehouse. He had a partially torn Achilles tendon that caused him to miss most of the season after January 10th last season. Head coach Mark Fox told the Macon Telegraph that it was just a precautionary rest day due to soreness from the way their schedule fell out over the last two weeks or so.

The one thing that jumps out at me about Georgia is peaches. It's the middle of the day on a Sunday, so we're going to keep it light and make today's Pint Touch Sprecher Brewery's Peach Radler.
