Somebody asked for one and this seemed as good a place to go as any:

Dazzle me in the comments.
Filed under Name That Caption
I’ll pray for you Coach Franklin…..That Coach Grantham doesn’t tear your head off.
And I will strike down upon those with great vengeance and with furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know that my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee
I had a different scene from “Pulp Fiction” in mind, the one where Jules and Vincent are talking about the fate of Tony Rocky Horror.
“You don’t think he overreacted?”
“Franklin probably didn’t expect Grantham to react like he did . . but he had to expect a reaction.”
Which now begs the question “Would Coach Franklin ever give a guy a foot massage?”
You almost got Granthamed!
Richt “First, let me apologize for Coach Grantham calling you a punk-ass mutha-fuckah….even though it is true, I’m the one who gets to call you a punk-ass mutha-fucka, and if you want to keep that finger yer’re pointing at me, and not have it stuck up yer punk ass, you better reel it in. Great game coach.” (For those who have never seen the pissed off Richt face, this is a version of it.)
This. Just for the sake of picturing Richt dropping F-bombs.
CMR: I’ve addressed it with everybody involved. You’re one load your mom should have swallowed!
CRF:I have tremendous respect for you. I knew you’d handle it the right way
Not a caption, but I will greatly enjoy UGA whipping this guy’s a** for the next 4-5 years until he is also gone. This picture tells em all I need to know about who the aggressor was that evening.
Mmm milk duds.
CRF: You can be my wing man anytime
CMR: Bullshit, you can be mine!
If we are going Top Gun, how about:
Coach Franklin: You guys really are cowboys.
CMR: What’s your problem, Franklin?
Coach Franklin: You’re everyone’s problem. That’s because every time you go on the field, you’re unsafe. I don’t like you because you’re dangerous.
CMR: That’s right! Frank… lin. I am dangerous.
CMR: you figured it out yet?
CJF: figured what out
CMR: who’s the best hair-do
Note to self: Don’t shake Coach Franklin’s hand too hard. And whatever you do, don’t slap him on the back.
Coach, you need a breat mint.
CRF: “I’m telling you…if you’re not bald, you should be wearing a cap!”
You stole my W tonight! And I want it back!
“There is an insufficient supply of curb in the city of Athens for the amount of stomping that will happen next year. We will need Mayor Denson and/or Prez Adams to initiate a curb implementation policy tout suite. And, tell your university police to not push The Grantham. I cannot be held responsible for what may happen to the poor fellow once he’s prodded the wild animal. Best wishes on that whole winning a conference game thing.”
Campus police everywhere are the worst kind of wannabes…no one respects or notices them, so they’re constantly trying overly hard to hand out comeuppance to essentially everyone else on campus. I’m not surprised it was a vu-cop that gave Grantham the shove.
Hows about:” Look I know you might feel pissed off here son, but you should thanks heavens all Kwame did was punch him in the side. If that guy lost it, I don’t think any of us would be here to yell at one another. God bless. Pease!”
Curly Bill Brosius FTW!
He’s even meaner as Cy Tolliver on Deadwood.
CMR: Why James, does this mean we’re not friends anymore? You know James, if I thought you weren’t my friend… I just don’t think I could bear it.
Best one-liner movie ever!
You’ll be a daisy if you do!
“Why, James, are we cross?”
+ infinity on that one!
No caption, but I’ll take our Georgia State Patrol over the Vanderbilt Campus Police in the throughdown.
Richt to self: Hey, I’ve got more hair than anyone here.
Richt to Franklin: Nice stadium you got here. First night game? I heard Vandy was moving to the Mountain West. Couldn’t get a Big East invite? Oh, Grantham left you a present on the fifty yardline.
CMR: Wait, who are you again?
Dang, you stole mine. I was going to go with “Excuse me, sir. Have you seen Bobby Johnson around here?”
And then he continues… Who cares, not important. Wanna come coach special teams?
CMR: LOL U MAD BRO?
Btw I’m happy we played not to lose. In hindsight it was fun to watch. We kept it bland and didn’t show anything, and now have 2 weeks to prep for UF with close win as a nice wakeup call.
“Sometimes when you say hello to my little friend, it’s hair-raising for me, too.”
Better yet: “Mark Richt will never forget this slight. We will burn it into our memory and feast on your young next year. We will salt the earth with the remains of your dignity and coaching career.”
CMR: Do you feel lucky punk? Well do ya???
“Hey cueball, can you point me in the direction of your head coach?”
“hey boy, where is Coach Franklin at?”
“I AM Coach Franklin.”
“Oh pardon me. For some reason you sounded a little taller on the radio.”
God bless Jackie Gleason
I always liked this one:
CMR: “The fact that you are a head coach is not germane to the situation.
CJF (shouting): “The gd Germans got nothin’ to do with it.”
“Hey boy, where is Coach Franklin at?”
Apparently Dawg93 and I think alike on Monday mornings. That quote is the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the picture.
LOL – demented (and slightly old) minds.
Nobody puts Grantham in a corner!
Wait, another ZDawg? I’m just gonna call you ‘dash’. 🙂
There’s so much win in these comments that I don’t know where to start. Already I’ve seen references to Pulp Fiction, Top Gun and Tombstone. Someone get one in from Major League and Heat (the good one, not the Burt Reynolds one), I’d do it but I’m not nearly creative enough.
Major League reference…
“You mean to tell me that you don’t think Coach Grantham could hit a curveball????”
Here’s one from Major League.
CMR to CJF: “In case you haven’t noticed, and judging by the attendance you haven’t, the Dawgs have managed to win a few here and there, and are threatening to climb to the top of the SEC East.
Franklin – “you don’t frighten us with your enormous athletic budget and superior recruiting, lord Richt”
Grantham (off screen) – “I find your lack of faith disturbing” while he initiates choke hold
Richt – “Grantham, release him. This bickering is pointless. Florida will show us the way to the SEC East title “
“Listen Preacher man, I’m forty, and I’m a man…that’s why I take on kids half my age about… Oh wait, dang, I got that all backwards.”
CMR: 8 ball corner pocket
Caption would be … “old guard not happy with upstart”… but i like the way our troopers are dialed in.
“Mark, this reminds me of Gettysburg…”
CMR: Hey, your not Coach Franklin.
Decoy: That’s right CMR. Coach Franklin is about to shank you from behind.
Shawn Williams, you keep playing! Todd Grantham and the defensive team and coaches, let’s keep it going.
Heard that Williams will be the featured singer at the end of season Grand Ole Oprey. Williams is to sing a song dedicated to Franklin…Here’s a Quarter, Call Someone Who Gives a Damn.
Now on to what we in south Georgia call our largest city…Jacksonville.
CMR: “Why did I allow Coach Grantham to call you his bitch? Because I love him…I allowed it because I love him. Next question?”
CMR–Coach, “by my count that’s 10 of 11 against you guys. By the way nice ball yard up here”.
CJF (shouting): “I am the Head Coach of the Commodores”
CMR: “Here in Vandy? Really, I didn’t know you still had a team”
CJF: “Yup, we’ve got uniforms and everything, it’s really great!”
My players would like some women while we are in town. Where is your wife?
‘Now that, sir, was uncalled for.’
‘Bush League motherf-cker.’
“The time for honoring yourself will soon come to an end.”
I’ve got three submissions –
“Hey, Coach Richt, pull my finger…”
“Big gulps, eh? Well, see you later.”
“Hey, Coach Richt, what’s that there on your shirt… PSYCHE!”
CMR: “Coach, I can’t understand a thing you’re saying with that cock in your mouth.”
Franklin: I really thought Coach Grantham already got the word from you to just leave my childish whining and tirades alone and give me his blessings.
Richt: Yeah, I told the Coach to kick your behind that is why he came to you first to soften it for me. LOL
FRANKLIN: That defensive co-ordinator of yours said a nasty word to me after we chopped blocked your players all night and I personally insulted a student-athlete in his presence! I demand satsifaction!
Added Richt response: Yeah, good for you, do it again next year at Athens and see if you can get out of the place whole.
Franklin, pointing to Richt: “Would you go tell Grantham I appologize, please. I am afraid he will kill me if he sees me alone or only with campus cops to protect me.”
Richt, patting him on the shoulder: “If he was going to kill you, you would already be dead. (In Richt’s best impression of Saban) I don’t have time for this Sh_t”
CMR: You see Franklin, I can deal with the critics, and the parents, and the press. I don’t want money, and I don’t want medals. What I do want is for you to stand there in that faggoty white & black uniform and with your nasty mouth extend me some friggin courtesy.
That would be the edited for TV version. +1
So Franklin’s reply would be the finger pointing and saying ‘I Want the Truth’!
Gone stick my foot up yo’ ass, you chicken head mo fo.
You keep acting like this, dickhead and no one will shine your dome-knob.
Hey Montel, can I have your autograph? Wait you’re NOT Montel Williams?
You’re so bald, that when you wear that Vandy jacket, you look like a broken condom.
Cmr: don’t go away mad, coach. Just go away.
LOL for you GTP. Good outlet for UGA fans, we just have to wait for these COMODOORMATS next year in Athens. We can have a very looooong memory. Let us just get a Pit bull as UGA IX to rip his behind to shreds if he continue to showboat.
“I don’t believe in God. I believe in Science.”
I’m Mark Richt-who the hell are you?
Coondawg gets my vote!
CMR: Are you in front of me or behind me? Weird.
No caption to add, but it’s now easy to see who the douche was in this entire thing. Vandy’s coaches/players decided that the best chance they had to win was to get UGA to play undisciplined by playing dirty and it almost worked. I wish CMR would have broken off his finger and shoved it up his rear. On a side not…not sure if anyone was listening to 790 The Zone this morning but we were getting run down pretty good by them. They were even saying that CTG flipped off the Vandy fans. I didn’t see this, but how would that work when there were only 6 of them in the stands any way.
I had the same thought. The Muhammed Ali approach. I’m thinking he’ll spend enough time pissing everybody off that what success he may have this year will translate to teams preparing to not just beat them next year, but humiliate them. I can’t wait to see how Grantham handles that next season.
“The Grantham is not the issue here, dude”
This aggression will not stand, man.
“Maybe football’s just not your game James. I know, let’s have a spelling contest.”
CJF: Are you telling me that 200 of our men against your boy is a no-win situation for us?
CMR: You send that many, don’t forget one thing.
CMR: A good supply of body bags.
Richt: He’s waiting for you by the big oak.
“Well, now you’re on double-secret probation!”
“In what world could you have ever beaten me?”
Stay outta Nashville deadbeat.
“what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”
Richt: “Here’s a joke for you, James: How many Vandy fans does it take to screw in the stadium’s lightbulb? … That’s right! All three of ’em!”
CMR : They sent in their best man, and when we roll across the 59th Street bridge tomorrow, on our way to freedom, we’re going to have their best man leading the way – from the neck up!
CTG : On the hood of my car!
CMR to CJF: “The power of Christ compels you!”
CMR: I’m your huckleberry.
Are you gonna bark all day, little doggy, or are you gonna bite?
Isn’t that just like a ‘Dore. Brings a knife to a gun fight.
CMR: “Tomorrow, winning this game is like waking up with the skanky chick. It may be ugly but at least you get the win.”
Good for CMR. Appears Grantham was NOT the only one NOT willing to put up with that Vandy Crap. GATA.
Bearddog got mine however i would have spelled it throwdown–I will take GA STATE PATROL over vandy university police any day–looks like they were ready if that finger got any closer
“I don’t give a damn what you say Franklin, we were not blocking access to the library.”
Does that finger represent the number of SEC wins you have? As soon as you win your 100th give me a call and we will chat.
“Go ahead, skin that smoke wagon. Let’s see what happens.”
I’ll tell you what, you bend ova and I’ll shove this straight up yo ass!
I’ll still be your huckleberry brojo. !
Norton my friend, I know that you know that I know that you wanna fuck me.
When I bend over, STAAART FUCKIN !!!!!
humana humana humana!
CRF : I’m sorry, I didn’t get your name. I got your assistants, Grantham, right? But I ..
CMR: My name’s Pitt. And your ass ain’t talkin’ your way out of this shit.
CRF: No, no, I just want you to know… I just want you to know how sorry we are that things got so fucked up with us and Mr. Grantham. We got into this thing with the best intentions and I never…
CMR:[shoots the VU rental cop] I’m sorry, did I break your concentration? I didn’t mean to do that. Please, continue, you were saying something about best intentions. What’s the matter? Oh, you were finished! Well, allow me to retort. What does Todd Grantham look like?
“Coaches Gone Wild”
“Damn Clark. Last time I saw a beatin’ like that, someone stuck a banana down my pants and turned a monkey loose. “
Anyone here have a comb?
CMR: You have offended me sir! I challenge you to a duel…
CJF: aaaarrrrggghhh!!!! (runs away)
CMR: Get back here! Why you yellow-belly!!!
“I asked you what your dirt was doing in Boss Grantham’s hole? “
CMR: Im all jacked up on mountain dew!
If ya ain’t first your last-Ricky Bobby
