SEC spring meetings have gotten underway in Destin, Fla. and some news concerning Georgia football came out on Tuesday. The Dawgs found out that their games against South Carolina and Florida are both in 3:30 p.m. timeslots on CBS. UGA and South Carolina will open the SEC on CBS coverage for the 2014 season with an afternoon kickoff in Columbia on Sept. 13. The next game Georgia knows they will have with Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson in the broadcast booth is Nov. 1 against Florida down in Jacksonville, also at 3:30 p.m. The only other game time that has been determined so far is against Troy on Sept. 20 in Athens. Kickoff is set for noon at Sanford Stadium and it will be the first time the Bulldogs are featured on the soon-to-be-launched SEC Network.


Former UGA cornerback Shaq Wiggins announced last weekend that he is indeed going to follow former defensive coordinator Todd Grantham to Louisville. The rising sophomore made the announcement on his Instagram account. Earlier this month, Georgia confirmed that Wiggins was leaving the program after playing 12 games as a freshman in 2013. The Sandy Springs product started in eight of those contests and recorded 19 tackles (three for a loss), two interceptions (one for a touchdown against Vanderbilt) and four pass breakups. Wiggins joins former Georgia safety Josh Harvey-Clemons as another player who is joining Grantham at Louisville. Wide receiver Uriah Lemay and outside linebacker Paris Bostick are additional players who have decided to leave the program since the conclusion of last season.


Georgia’s tennis duo of Maho Kowase and Lauren Herring made it all the way to the NCAA tournament final before coming up just short. The pair ran into familiar foes Maya Jansen and Erin Routliffe of Alabama, falling 6-1, 6-0 on Monday afternoon. Kowase and Herring end the season with a record of 36-7 and can now add NCAA runner-up to their resume. With tennis having wrapped up simultaneously with golf (which finished 11th at the NCAA tournament to miss out on the match-play segment by three spots), UGA’s spring athletics are beginning to wind down. More than 30 athletes on the men’s and women’s track and field teams, however, have advanced to the NCAA regional currently underway from Thursday through Saturday in Jacksonville, Fla.
