Technically speaking, he’s been in the arena.

Our fearless leader chimes in.

It’s not the criticism that’s amusing, it’s the deep insight about a solution that is.

    “…national championship threshold…”

    That’s supporter speak for “perennially disappointed a form of entertainment”.

    Wow. You’ve got to work pretty hard to come up with platitudes emptier than what the coaching staff have already been shoveling our way for the last few weeks. Should’ve known ol’ Sonny would be the one to step up and clear that bar. (Surprised he didn’t suggest that we all form a prayer circle and beg God for a few wins.)

    The sad thing is, I can’t even get too excited about him finally not being our guv after this year, because there’s no evidence to indicate his replacement will represent any kind of improvement. I’m seriously going libertarian this year — then I’d at least get Sunday booze sales out of the deal.

      I’ll be voting in protest too.

      I love this “two party” state we have here.

      You can either vote Democrat or you can vote Democrat who switched parties when it was expedient (after his election of course).

        Please consider voting Libertarian. Take a look at John Monds’ ideas on the issues.

        The 2 party system is broken, and more support for a viable 3rd is only available when engaged people actually put forth some effort to look for electable candidates.

        Too long people have blindly selected based on the R or D by a candidate’s name, and those Rs and Ds have blindly led.

    Why isn’t this in Political Wankery? That’s my favorite category.

    When was he elected alumnus-in-chief? I didn’t vote for him!


  6. Never a doubt

    What do you expect him to say? He’s not going to pick on the coach, and he’s not going to start calling out particular players or plays. That’s exactly the type of thing you expect to hear from a politician when asked about a sports team, which is exactly why no one gives a crap what they say.

    Move along. Nothing to see here.

      Same for many former players.

      They often seem to be so un-enlightened that you’d think they’re messing with you.

      Good grief! Who looks to politicians for analysis, anyway?

      This site is a lot more fun without the politics.

    Heh. Things that are awesome about Indiana relative to Georgia:

    1) Fall weather;
    2) the governor.

    Things that are not so awesome about Indiana relative to Georgia:

    1) Notre Dame.

    Of all the things I miss about living in God’s country, its elected officials remain off the list.

    “Get serious about winning!” Of course!

    If only Sonny had spoken up sooner, we could be 3-1!

    I would rather hear Zell Miller’s take. He was usually willing to call a spade a spade.


  10. Turd Ferguson

    He should’ve just blamed Bush.

    I’d like to know what Cynthia McKinney thinks about UGA’s football team this season. I’m just sayin’…


    • Will (the other one)

      They invited her, but didn’t recognize her after a new haircut.
      There was some unpleasentness.

      (And you really don’t want to know who her father blames the losses on…)


      • Carter

        Let me guess, Zionists?

        I’m sure the McKinney’s could offer you some informative pamphlets detailing their thoughts on “The International Jew”.

    I don’t think Sonny was ever really “in the arena.” He might have been a tackling dummy on the practice squad but I sure don’t remember him playing.
