They call him the joker.

If Tommy Tuberville ever gets tired of coaching, he might have a future in standup comedy.

… In a brief meeting in the Oval Office, Bush presented each of the coaches with a tie clip and a golf ball, each with the Presidential seal.

“You need to get rid of all this stuff,” Tuberville said, referring to the fewer than eight months remaining in Bush’s term. “Your wife’s not going to let you bring it home.”

… A few hours later, as the same bus brought the coaches to the field, someone announced that a coach needed to volunteer to serve as referee. Weis snapped it up.

“I’m going to screw the SEC,” Weis said, looking for a reaction.

“It wouldn’t be the first time,” Tuberville shot back.

    The Georgia Bulldogs are The Preseason Number One Football Team in the Nation. The Georgia Bulldogs, who last season played the Number 7 toughest Strength of Schedule in the Nation (which was the toughest schedule of all the Top-Ranked Football Teams last season), also play the Toughest SoS in the country in addition this season.

    This seems a far better topic than all of your blogs, if you don’t mind me pointing out that blogs like this one here don’t exactly get a discussion going on a point.

    Thanks for posting that story Senator. I loved it! I read where ESPN will be airing footage of this trip, including the flag football game, on Christmas Day. Can’t wait to see it.

    Hey TB,
    If you don’t like this blog then start your own. The Senator has posted plenty on the strength of this years schedule. Why continue to beat a dead horse?

    Some of us enjoy reading everything that has to do with the football team. Nobody’s making you read it TB. Thanks for the post Senator

  5. I totally want My Chemical Romance or Fall Out Boy or some other emo crew to come through for us and release a song called “A Far Better Topic Than All of Your Blogs.”

  6. Sounds catchy. Maybe they could get Buzz Bissinger to pen the lyrics. ;)
