Admittedly, I’ve been a little slack taking you guys through the fever swamps of opposing schools’ message boards lately, but I’ve got a couple of threads you may find amusing.
First from Vanderbilt’s Scout board, someone asks the musical question “Why do we hate UGA so much right now?”. Honestly, I’m still trying to get over the concept of why they hate Georgia at all, but I digress. Winning comment: ”Franklin stood up to them and they were offended. Add on the fact that he’s African American, and you’ve got a lot of hidden racism bubbling to the surface, although the largely white fan base would never admit it.” Unlike, say, Vandy’s largely white fan base…
Okay, if that was surprising, there’s nothing like going home to Stingtalk, where you can always count on whatever amount of logic twisting is necessary to show that anything that happens in Athens is good for Georgia Tech. So you can imagine the wisdom spewed forth over twelve pages in response to this: “Anyone else like that GA SOUTHERN plays UGA the week before us?”. The gist of why it’s good, I gather, is because it will give Paul Johnson a look at how Grantham defends the triple option. It’s not until the seventh page of the thread that someone points out Johnson’s seen how Grantham defends the triple option twice already.
You gotta love ‘em.
