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?

    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.

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.’
