You know, this is a nice piece and all, but I can’t help but wonder how a post-game radio interview with Jeremy Pruitt would come off after Loran asked him one of his patented off-the-wall questions.
Filed under Georgia Football
Coach Pruitt do you like boiled peanuts?
Oh crikey, this made me laugh. Wasn’t it Charles Grant he asked that to?
99% certain it was.
Carry the 1 and add it
Just don’t ask coach about anyone cramping up during the game.
Loran spoke at the Griffin Bulldog Club meeting on Thursday last week, my dad went. He said Loran started out sounding great, but by the end you could barely hear him even with the microphone, his voice just got weaker and weaker. Said he told some pretty funny and interesting stories though, but Father Time is definitely catching up to him.
IMO Loran’s got nothing. Never has … never will.
Drop dead. You know nothing.
It definitely was a good piece when compared to the deification pieces that I think hurts Pruitts image later if shit hits the fan. I like the human interest stories and think later is a good time to have in-depth-thoughts interviews after a few successes.
Rah-rah stuff will take you so far and is a killer if you aren’t athletically endowed above most. Pruitt takes our great athletes and instills loyalty to team above self to bring out the athlete most don’t know is present. I’m pretty excited with installation of team belief in itself w/o artificially pushing sales puffery.
Who knows, maybe Pruitt is the reincarnation of Erk. It only enhances the image of both.
Damn! Was correct to begin with.
No. ‘In depth interviews.’
I hope for Pruitt’s sake that it goes a lot better than Donnan’s first. He lost a lot of Dawg fans right off the bat with how he treated Loran.
Scorecheck lost me with his–a legend like Loran deserves respect
Not a Loran fan. TMI about him as a person.
Donnan lost me when he mistreated Larry.
Donnan has always been a surly guy. He put the Marshall fans on notice early that he wasn’t taking any crap from them. He won pretty big there so they tolerated it.
Donnan wasn’t exactly Dale Carnegie.
I am not a Loran hater, but what do you think makes him a “legend”? Longevity? Larry was a legend. Loran is a nice guy who was lucky enough to hang with Larry on game day.
I too remember the Juan Daniels bit from the ’96 game (from the linked Georgiasports blog above). That was a classic one and I recall Munson referring to the cart (that took Daniels away) as a “squatty little thing.”
Based on memory, the best Loran bits were from roughly ’95-00.
I, for one, would love to see Pruitt earn those comparisons to Erk.
Can you imagine how good we could be with a “new” junkyard D and Bobo’s O? There really is a tremendous upside here. GO DAWGS!
