Yes, it is, Bobby.

“I have the utmost respect for Todd. I think he’s an expert at everything he does on defense. It’s great having him here because of his intensity, his knowledge, and with me being able to work on offense and him run the entire defense.

“We have a great relationship. We have the utmost respect for each other. We’re having a really good time in camp and I see our players getting better and smarter on defense every day.”

Remember, those kids were coached by Strong and Bedford last season.

    I’m not a body language or microexpression expert but Bobby sure seems uneasy in the video.

    Sounds like BP is considering proposing marriage to TG. Legal in KY?

    it isn’t legal, but it might be if they were cousins.

    It’s laughable that those kids are getting better and smarter on defense everyday. More like getting more flustered and confused on defense everyday.

    There’s a little nugget from when CTG was hired in January that has stuck with me, and kind of surprising it wasn’t properly researched. Of his reasons for hiring CTG, CBP said “I’ve had the opportunity to compete against Todd’s defenses over the years and have been very impressed with his scheme and how hard his players compete.”

    What’s interesting about that is the only time they faced off in college was when Arkansas came to Athens in 2010 (was at that game). The Hogs were ahead 24-10 at one point thanks to numerous blunders in the UGA secondary (Mallett threw for close to 400 yards, IIRC), and eventually lost following a rally to tie it, then a missed tackle on a short out turned into a 60-yard game-winning TD.

    Apparently that’s now worth a $1 million-a-year salary…

    Senator, you got exactly what you wanted–both of them denied it.
