Promises, promises.

Man, I love this quote (major h/t Groo):

One intriguing part in a quote-heavy book is Meyer’s response as to how to approach the 2008 Georgia game, specifically addressing the Bulldogs picking up a much-hyped celebration penalty after their first touchdown in a 42-30 win last season: “That wasn’t right. It was a bad deal. And it will forever be in the mind of Urban Meyer and in the mind of our football team. … So we’ll handle it. And it’s going to be a big deal.”

You know a guy is serious when he refers to himself in the third person.

As long as Georgia’s not in their heads, or anything…

    Meyer didn’t need any additional qualities to make him a class A d-bag. Yet he chose to add one by using the third person thing.
    If the recruiting violations won’t get him, pent up hatred will.

    In the Capital One Bowl game with Michigan, the Gators tried their own celebration at the center of the field before the game started. Only they could not back it up. So perhaps they will try the same thing with us and perhaps Penn Wagner will go after them and not us.

    The gaytors weren’t penalized for what they did at their bowl though. Un;ess of course you count losing said bowl after stomping on the logo….

    “Jimmy” don’t like celebrations. “Jimmy” don’t like bad deals. “Jimmy” will handle it.

    Urban a Seinfeld fan of Jimmy?

    Yeah – okay. Did he mention their player that jumped on Stafford when no one else moved?

    You know the Gators are thinking and thinking of ways to celebrate or at least acknowledge the celebration in some way (even if it is just to hand the ball back to the ref). What I’d love to see is that when the Gators finally score their first points (assuming they score of course), and they finally get to “respond”, the entire UGA team stand at the sideline and clap their hands or turn their backs at whatever “celebration” the Gators retaliate with – just to one up the celebration that they’ve waited a whole year to do. Better yet, (though it won’t happen) is to hold up and “read” newspapers while they do it.
