You can’t get away from the hot seat.

Even if you’re Vince Dooley in Washington, Georgia, signing copies of your gardening book.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Way too polite there, Coach Dooley.  I would have gone for the harsh look and “that’s a stupid question” response, for starters.

Florida: winning the SEC wars, losing the fashion wars

While we’re on the subject of hair styles, this comes via Slate:

The Iranian Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance banned “un-Islamic” Western hairstyles for men earlier this week—in particular, the ponytail, a spiky gelled hairdo known locally as the “rooster,” and the infamous mullet. When did Westerners start wearing mullets?

First of all, as a card-carrying member of Western civilization, I’d like to go on record as saying that I’m personally offended at being lumped into any categorization that includes mullet-wearers.

But more importantly, how do you lay out a history of the mullet without a single mention of Gator Nation?

That’s just wrong.

In another blow to Gator self-esteem, George Clooney lays down the smack on a second fashionista front:

… Examining other photos, Clooney explained why he was not the man in one particular picture.

“Here, for instance. I don’t smoke and I don’t wear that watch,” Clooney said. Then after a pause he added, “I also don’t wear long jean shorts.”

Feel the contempt!  It’s the “after a pause” that sells it.  It’s just too bad he didn’t use the technical term.

Yeah, I know.

Normally, I don’t do verbal commitment posts, but for obvious reasons, I’d like to welcome Georgia’s newest offensive line recruit and zombie avoidance expert.

I only hope that Coach Searels will relax his media restriction rules at least somewhat.  You can’t ever get enough warning about why wearing a mullet is dangerous.
