At least we’re 2-3 over the last five years.

Georgia fans, as much as we whine and gnash our teeth over what’s gone down in Jacksonville over most of the last two decades, at least things have gotten a little sunnier (by comparison, anyway) over the past few years.

It could be a lot worse, you know.

“Somewhere out there is a 5½-year-old, born late in the afternoon of Nov. 22, 2003. She can write her name, maybe read a word or two, ride a bike without training wheels and run a lemonade stand (although correct change might be iffy). She’ll enter kindergarten in the fall.

“And in her existence, since she joined the world, Michigan has never beaten Ohio State in football.”

I feel better already.

    I don’t.

    There will come a day when R. Rod has his Michiganders run through tOSU like he did when he had WVa run through UGA in the Sugar Bowl.

    There will also come a day when UGA will get das Boot of Urban off its neck and will stomp UF like it did in the 1980’s…maybe it will be the 2080’s but that day will come. Raise your hand if you think you’ll still be around…anyone, anyone? Bueller, Goff, Richt? Anyone?


  3. At least Richt didn’t screw around in losing to Florida this year. Can’t say you can resign yourself to a few Edwards-dropped-the-ball-level what-ifs when you lose by 40.

      Those Georgia fans in Florida, me anyway, have the severe psychiatric disorder of McKayina, which manifests itself once a year right around Halloween.

      Primary symptoms are John McKay Head Coach of Bucs quotes scrolling on an ESPN perpetual footer on the TV screen in your mind :

      On a Buc’s placekicker saying he was missing because McKay made him nervous:

      “I don’t think he has much of a future here because I plan on going to all the games.”

      On a question about what he thought about his team’s execution:

      “I’m all in favor of it.”

      *The Tony Dungey/Willie Martinez companion quote is: “We just have to execute.” Don’t know who.

      On why coaching an expansion team is like a religious experience:

      “You do a lot of praying but most of the time the answer is No.”

      On pre-season training camp:

      “It’s shattering when a player loses interest in camp. When you lose your desire to stand around and eat steaks, you lose everything.”

      You know you are getting close to getting close to the end of the game when you not only see but hear in your head the classic after a 25-10 loss to the Vikings:

      “We almost got rigor mortis watching them run up and down the field.”

      You know you are almost finished when you can say to the other pissed off Georgia fans trying to escape:

      “We’ll get ’em next year after Tebow is gone. If Stafford had stayed. If Moreno hadn’t gone. It was hot. It was cold. It was wet. It was dry. Someone on our team was injured. Someone on their team wasn’t.”

      And when you’re in your car and have escaped the parking lot after giving and receiving fingers and curses, you’ll know you are completely finished and ready to shake it off until 2010 with next year’s biggest and best:

      “We were looking ahead to Tennessee Tech.”


  4. “Someone on our team was injured. Someone on their team wasn’t.”

    Yes, our Gator partisans from the south lost all rights to mocking us for such logic after the OH NOES TEBOW WAS HOIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!!!! song-and-dance routine in ’07.


    • Uhhh

      Right. Because I saw that argument so often, between “Eh, our defense sucked” and various pledges of vengeance for “The Celebration”.
