The best reason ever not to wear a mullet.

Georgia has offered Florida offensive tackle Zach DeBell.   I hope – no, I really hope – he takes it, because a kid who’s already absorbed one of life’s key lessons (if life imitates art, anyway)…

“I’ve seen probably every zombie movie ever made,” he said. “That’s why I have short hair. If you have long hair or a mullet they’ll grab it from behind.”

… seems destined for greatness.  Or at least a great interview or two.

I wonder what he thinks about jorts.

  1. +10 cocktails to you good sir. Great start to my morning. Although I’m sure Jared Allen would disagree with his mullet-ology.

    Florida fan; “The Gators own UGA.”

    Georgia fan; “Jorts, mullets!”

    It’s really all they got, so who are we to deny them succor where they can find it?

    • Gee, Mike, I didn’t even mention UF. I guess that’s your way of acknowledging that Gainesville is the fashion capital of the SEC.😉

      You own Georgia the same way I own my house.

      You’re just making a few payments, but bet your ass the bank is going to come calling in October.

        Ah yes, “wait ’till next year!”

        • Will (the other one)

          No, October is actually this year. But I can see how someone with a Florida education could be confused.

            Oh my. In addition to “jorts, mullets” we can now add, “and you are not annal retentive enough!”

            However will we sleep at night?

              Spelled “anal”. Is reading a calendar accurately anal-retentive? Actually looking at the calendar instead of the anus is a good start.

      If only they would count all those games prior to 1990 then UGA would own the all-time record. If only.

      • Mike

        We do count them Prov. We just like to point out that only fans that are 75 years or older can claim that in their lifetime, UGA owns the series

      That’s some really thought provoking bloggin Mike. Stay up all night waiting to zing that one at us this morning?

      – And they claim Einstein’s brain is still kept at Princeton.

    I bet he gets a big say in picking the team movies.

    Also, he probably gets flagged by Penn Wagers the first time he says “Skadoosh” after pancaking a blocker.

    I am getting my haircut this afternoon. Just in case…

    Or even names like Zach saved by DeBell

If you care about spelling, my advice is to pour yourself a stiff drink before untying that pink or blue ribbon and reading news of the blessed event.’

    ‘The weird spellings of common names is essentially the mullet of the baby-name world. It says to the world, my child has a conservative sounding name (short in front) but just wait till you see it in writing (long in back)! it’s the worst of both worlds.’
