’Dogs have No. 55 national ranking

“This could be one of the ‘it’ teams of 2009,” said CollegeFootballNews.com in its analysis of the Bulldogs. “Head coach Derek Dooley is a high-riser who might only be around one more year if his team is as good as expected.”

Camp hosts special guests

“Turn up the music. Are you kids enjoying camp?” he asks before he rotates his body in circles once the music starts.
The children aren’t reacting to a person — instead, they are reacting to a remote-controlled fire hydrant that has eyes, ears and a personality. The talking fire hydrant calls himself “Pluggie.”
A man holding a remote control nearby is the one who controls “Pluggie’s” movements and gives a voice to the fire hydrant.
