Time to Break Away From 'Dogs Coverage?

    The Georgia football season is 4 months away, but I'm debating whether to continue working the games on CSS. It's been a good ride of 10 years. Haven't done it for the money...it's just been fun following my program and breaking down the action as it unfolds. While others may have used this as a building block to chase down color analyst opportunities elsewhere, I've looked at this as a way to stay connected to the Bulldogs and to see the 'Dogs play. Never really wanted to call the S.Miss-UAB game, or Kentucky-Florida. 
    The logistics are making it tough to continue. Hosting the Braves Pre-Game show will take me into September and that complicates things. Hosting 680 The Fan's Saturday College Football Today Show is difficult, when the 'Dogs are on the road. And most importantly, my children are busy playing on Saturday's now. 
    Might be time for another Bulldog to step into this role. Kelin Johnson or David Greene. I feel like I've been hogging this role for too long. It's hard to tell. You don't get much feedback with this job, except some of those bloggers, who say, "that Belue doesn't know nothing." 
    Working with Matt Stewart has been wonderful. He's a real pro that has been overlooked in this business. Matt works hard at this and is well-prepared every Saturday. It's been a pleasure working with him. Georgia should have hired him, when Larry stepped down (in some role). 
    Also, it has been a whole lot of fun working with the legend Bob Neal. He's awesome. I've often thought of Bob, as I've grown in this business. He's a guy you can learn a lot from. Bob's done it all in this business.
     My four years at Georgia playing football and baseball were a dream come true for me. Still believe I've been the luckiest guy in Bulldog history. And this 10 years working for CSS has been enjoyable too. Just feel it might be time to pull away.
