One more pre-game picture from Saturday: Ben Jones walking barefoot through the Sanford Stadium grass.
Bibb County, Alabama, thank you very much.
No, BD…thank you Bibb County.
This is a good kid. Definitely a guy you don’t mind seeing go out of state and doing well.
That’s very classy of you to say, BD. Too many fans vilify the good kids that just choose to go to different colleges.
They’re not all like Newton & Fairley, after all.
I wish I could do that…
I’d pay a coupla hundred bucks to be able to walk around barefoot in that grass. Heaven.
it really is heaven. i sware its softer than some carpet.
i was in Redcoats, and we practiced in Sanford on wednesdays. Every once in a while when they had just painted the field, we had to practice bearfoot. Those were some of my favorite days
Ben walks barefooted on a D-1 coach’s snack. Is that what you mean, Spike?
It’s not just for coaches anymore.
I’m gonna miss that big lug.
I really hope he unleashes hell on the war tigers…I’m pretty sure he remembers the end of the game last year.
Pretty sure he instigated the end of the game last year. He has been effective in helping put some lead back into Georgia’s pencil.
And miles to go before he rests…..
I hold Ben absolutely innocent. After what Fairley did to Murray and after the refs refused to call ONE SINGLE DIRTY HIT, what Ben did was completely and totally defensible.
It woulda been great if Uga was walking around with him. A boy and his dawg.
The grass is like soft carpet. I got on the field for last years Vandy game, and really was amazed how great the grass felt. We do a great job at maintaining our field.
For anyone that watched the FL/Vandy game, did you notice how shitty their field looked? Very worn and brown.
Maybe they should go back to the carpet.
I noticed the exact same thing and commented on it as well during their game! As a matter of fact – and this is gonna sound slanted and bias here – I notice that a lot around the SEC. Our field always looks top notched, and a lot of them just look shabby, for lack of a better term, especially as the season wears on. I can’t understand that with all the $$ flowing thru this league.
Not playing a home game in a month doesn’t hurt.
Fla hadn’t been at home since Oct 1 themselves.
I’ll bet every HS in North Florida has been playing games in the Swamp from the looks of it.
Ben must love him some grass. Rip it up and eat it or walk thru it. If any game was played on a muddy field my guess is he’d be the dirtiest of em all and in complete heaven. DGD
