Thursday Night Football Blindside Reuinion, Georgia Hoops, And ATL's Best Restaurants: Around The Perimeter

Dawgs: Searching For Billy Edelin, one of SB Nation's college hoops communities, ranks the Georgia Bulldogs seventh in a list of the 25 most intriguing teams, thanks to Trey Thompkins staying, Marcus Thronton joining, and even Damon Evans leaving. They've got the Bulldogs making the NCAA Tournament's second round.

Falcons: If you've read The Blindside, as there is no other way that I know of to partake of The Blindside's content, you'll remember the part in which Mississippi Rebels players Michael Oher and Peria Jerry compete for a tutor's attention. Tonight, the tutor's name will be Thursday Night Football on NFL Network! Baltimore Ravens tackle Oher and Atlanta Falcons DT Jerry aren't likely to line up on each other that often, but it's yet another thing to keep an eye on.

ATL: Redditors mob up a list of Atlanta's best restaurants.

WTF: This has nothing to do with Atlanta that I can think of right now, but give me a second. Windy City Gridiron, our Chicago Bears community, covered what might be the 1985 Bears' last official reunion -- days after Athletics Nation interviewed the owner of the Oakland Athletics, meaning there's journalism breaking out all over the place around here. Oh, I just looked it up, and apparently the Falcons also played NFL football in '85. So, boom, Atlanta connection.
