Hello from Sanford Stadium, guys.
It's another warm Saturday in Athens (I'm sure Mark Richt will mention that), but it's a nice day as we await the DawgWalk and later on kickoff of the game vs. Florida Atlantic.
The collaring ceremony for Russ -- which they're preparing for now with rope on the field -- will begin shortly before kickoff.

I hope the team comes to play and we look good doing it, Im getting sick of people talking about how we looked against Buffalo. Excited to have Commings back having him at safety will be huge.
FAU's team on the field now, walking around in warm-up attire
So this has already been probably a mildly stressful day for FAU coach Carl Pelini, considering this bit of news for his brother ...
Pelini did not return to the field after halftime during the Cornhuskers' game against Arkansas State.
Georgia's team arriving now ...
First off the DawgWalk ...
Big dude ...
Ogletree not dressed out
Rambo not dressed out either
Watts Dantzler not in uniform and walking in with a boot on his left foot (sprained ankle)
Cornelius Washington and Jarvis Jones ARE dressed out.
Both limited in practice last week
Malcolm Mitchell is dressed out and looks ready to play ...
Others not in uniform tonight as team arrives ... Taylor Bradberry (thumb), Hunter Long (foot), Dexter Morant (schoulder)
Also Kolton Houston is here and not dressed out too.

Damian Swann is dressed out and ready to play ...
He was also limited in practice.
Same for John Jenkins, who looks good to go ...
So it appears all those banged-up defensive guys are going to give it a go tonight.

For what it's worth, Zander Ogletree is wearing game pants and pads right now, but as other teammates are loosening up, he's just standing on the side. If you remember, he dressed out for the Buffalo game too.
ATHENS, Ga. -- As expected, Bacarri Rambo and Alec Ogletree remain on suspension and are among the UGA players out of Saturday nights Florida Atlantic game.
Beautiful sky as the sun is setting now and the stadium is filling in. The upper level of the student section still not fun, but should be a good crowd tonight.
Rambo is one of the guys throwing warm-ups passes to secondary in warm-ups ... First-string secondary unit has Commings at safety ... Norman is with second group
Jordan Jenkins was announced as part of the starting lineup defensively -- and NOT Jarvis Jones.
May be the star is taking a night off to get healthy ...
Cornelius Washington's position was either he or Josh Dawson (announced that way).
Commings was also announced as the starting safety in Rambo's place ...
Herrera for Tree ...
So there may be a few more defensive starters getting the night off. We'll see how they lineup with it starts.
Although we as fans would love to have some of the starters in there, especially Jarvis to pad his stats for the Heisman, I believe that it is best to make sure that we are healthy going forward. Should be able to handle this game without a few starters.
Just passed Bobo and company on the way to the press box ... They'll get a good seat for the pregame ceremony with Russ, for which photographers are clustering at midfield right now.
I wonder if the old bulldog has any idea ...
Russ being honored now ... Big cheer as he's carted out to midfield ...
"Ladies and gentleman, please welcome Uga IX."
Russ making the quick walk back to his house after receiving the collar from Adams ...
