File this under “damn, son, I don’t think I’d have said that”:
“Last year, I came out here and I didn’t really know what I was doing,” Hamilton said. “This year, I’m into the film more. I’m studying the playbook even more. Now I know what I’m doing. I know the concept of the defense. I get to play faster. I don’t have to think as much and I get to make plays. … Last year around this time, I would say I couldn’t even tell you a cover 4 from a blitz. Now I’m on it.”
There is so much stoopid concentrated in these two paragraphs about the Georgia-Georgia Tech rivalry that I’m almost worried they’ll make you dumber just reading them:
… But it’s not like one school has dominated the other on the field the past few years. In the past seven matchups, the Bulldogs have won six but nearly all the games have been close. Only one game’s winning margin has been greater than eight points, and both programs routinely go to bowl games.
The bottom line? Georgia Tech is going after elite academic kids—and it probably battles Vanderbilt and Stanford for key recruits as much as it battles Georgia. The Bulldogs constantly have to go against their SEC neighbors for the kind of athletic ability needed to compete in their conference.
Mark Richt is 9-1 lifetime against Tech. How much more dominant could he be?
I was so floored by the matter-of-factness of Chris Low’s premise here that I forgot to watch the video.
Talk about being held in contempt:
… Seems that during a guilty plea hearing in the courtroom of Chattahoochee Judicial Circuit Court Chief Judge John Allen, the defense attorney expressed concern that having a criminal record might prevent his client from attending the University of Iowa, where he was on football scholarship.
To which Judge Allen replied, “He can always go to Auburn.”
The courtroom erupted into raucous laughter — where were all the Auburn fans? — and then a chuckling Allen ordered his last comment to be struck from the record.
His Honor is a Florida grad, by the way.
