Rashad Roundtree’s sartorial splendor

I usually don’t spend time posting about Georgia’s verbal commitments, because… well, because they’re verbal commitments.  But there’s always an exception to the rule, and today’s is Augusta safety Rashad Roundtree, who was rocking these pants today when he announced his intent to play in Athens.

Here’s a close up.

I think I want some of those.

    Those will set you back about $150 bucks. I hope the only thing he puts his name on concerning football is a fax.

  4. I love the look of those pants–even more so when worn by a 5 star recruit.

    My bf has those in shorts. Wore them to the Bama blackout game in 2008 and hasn’t worn them since.

    I want a pair too. Mentioned it to my significant other last week on St.Simons and she looked at me like I had lost my mind. Some things even a good woman doesn’t get.

    Hooray for Roundtree Squarepants, welcome aboard!

    If you are gonna wear clothes with little pictures, those look better than most. They kind of conjure Crosby or Astaire.

    #2 Class for 2015. #1 QB in class of 2016. #1 player in the state for 2016. But didn’t they hear? We lost to Florida!!!! Burn it all down!!!! Fire everyone!!! All hope is lost!! What can Dawg fans hope to look forward to if we keep on this same course? Waaaahhhh!!!!!! Bitch, bitch, bitch,,, wah wah wah!!!! Blah, blah, blah!!!

    Can the rest of us start a program to help these people? We could offer them a choice:
    a) zoloft
    b) Auburn season tickets
    c) a .38 with a single bullet and diagram so that it is used safely, effectively and for the betterment of all mankind

    Those who eggs player’s homes and blast players on Twitter would be eligible for the program but their choices would be limited to “c” only.

          Sorry if my hatred of the “nabobs of negativity” seems a might disproportionate. But I do hate them so very much.

          Isn’t being a football fan a choice? I mean its not like you can’t choose what team you like or whether to watch football at all. You can. If you can’t find joy in it and all you can seem to do is make everyone else suffer with your whining and criticism and despair and hopelessness, really I’ve got no use for you. I’d rather spend my time with a Florida fan telling me how they are going to get to Atlanta this year than listen to “oh woe is me, we’ll never win another natty unless we fire everyone and hire one of the million candidates who would win 17 championships in 15 years if McGarrity weren’t so stupid.” I mean you have to ask yourself, are these people really worth the oxygen? So I say, medicate and get happy, switch teams until you are content or end it for the sake of all us. I mean, its not like they think they have anything to look forward to, amirite?

            Hang it there Derek, there are many more of us who stand with the Dawgs, even when we stub our toe. The number of committed fans far outnumber the Disney Dawgs on here who live in a world where you never lose or face adversity. And when you do, the reaction is to throw the players and staff under the bus to help you deal with reality. Screw ’em. They expect a W every week, and a blowout a that. Can’t be much fun dwelling on negatives all season, every year but that is their issue.

          • Yea I hear ya. Honestly, I find some of the well reasoned negativity a bit cathartic after crap storms like last week, however I tend to step away from the ledge after a few days and find things to be positive about and not spend a lot of energy trying to complain.

                It is my attempt to not cede the high ground to the negatrons, AHD. They have always claimed that any one who felt positive and supported the program was living in a fantasy world and didn’t accept reality. I feel there are more positives than negatives surrounding UGA football, especially under Richt, so they are the ones out of touch with reality. Expecting everything to be rosy every year/game is not reality so it is they who live in Walt Disney’s fantasy world. Look at the wild swings in emotions they endure when you look at the overall picture, they come on periodically and spew their venom and then are shut up when things go well again, only to reappear when there is a bump, of any kind. Those of us who look at true reality know that every program has fluctuations and you cannot live life on the edge and over react continuously. Plus, what kind of life is that for a fan, to be unhappy all the time and attack those who are supporting the program and keeping expectations in?

                Realistically, UGA has much more to feel confident about than to wallow in misery. We are among the top 10 among winning programs in America for all time, we compete in the best conference in football, and are one championship from being tied for second all time in that conference’s history. We have been ranked in the Top 10 several times in Richt’s tenure, won the East five times and the SEC title twice. How fricking bad is that? Could it be better? Sure, and it has come close to beiun geven better than that several times. And we do it while being hamstrung a bit because we choose to do things “according to Doyle”..for which they would have you believe is the wrong way. So yeah, I say us realists have a better grip than the Disney Dogs who feel the sky is always falling, or just about to.

                  “according to Doyle”..

                  That’s Popeye Doyle who, when our players go on frolics and detours, connects those infractions and reports them to the NCAA Headquarters. With other feeder programs, the guilty always get away but with our dragnet we make sure that will never happen. Now, who’s up for some drug testing?

    I’ve got a pair in red for away games (white top) and khaki for home games (red top).

    Obviously a person of impeccable taste. I hope his safety play matches his sartorial tastes.

    Great pickup. Now if Georgia was smart they would get his teammate Stephen Houzah. He really does play safety for Lakeside. I saw them play my high school team the last three years. Roundtree played at the line of scrimmage against them this year and hardly had any effect on the game. Houzah made tackle after td saving tackle with quite a few hard hits. Returned two kickoffs for touchdowns also. Also played receiver. Roundtree is bigger but never once played safety. He is almost too big to play safety in my opinion. More of a Lo Carter type player.

    Ever since Spring I have been watching this class, and the next one, consistently build with players that we often just miss on. Not a close follower of HS football, and I know we don’t have them on board yet, but the staff is hitting doubles and round-trippers every 2-3 weeks. Even for a non-recruitnik, this seems like we are going to be a major factor for years to come. Let’s hope we finish strong and do nothing to disrupt the momentum. Just a few key fill-in positions yet to fill in and this will be the best class I have seen come to UGA. Combine that with the star power left from this current squad and I like the ingredients of our teams for the near-term future..

    More exceptional talent that will equate to another 9-3 or 10-2 season for the Dawgs, with an inexplicable loss or two each season. As expected.

    I’ve been watching this movie for 14 years, should I expect something different? Am I wrong?

    Go ahead, fire away.

      every team has an inexplicable loses…. Alabama lost to Ole Miss for christ sakes…..turns out they can’t even beat a mediocre LUS. Perfection doesn’t exist. Deal with it…choose a team or get outa the way. I thought I suggest Derek’s option (c) but its Friday and about Miller time so I’m feeling mellow. Couple more beers and I’m buying me a pair of them britches.

      Maybe you shouldn’t expect anything different…but you can choose to not let it eat you up. Seriously, I’ve kind of just conditioned myself to take the season as it comes, get annoyed for a little while occasionally on a Saturday, but then let it go and just be glad it’s football season and our team is a lot better than most.

      You are on point. Guys on here will throw eggs at you though because they don’t like hearing the truth. By the way, Roundtree isn’t from Augusta, he is from Evans.

        If you live in Evans you still say you are from Augusta. My kids graduated from Lakeside High School in Evans where Roundtree attends. We lived in Martinez, but we all claim Augusta hone of the Masters. We will proudly proclaim we go to Columbia County schools. Roundtree’s dad is the sheriff of Richmond County. I am sure he will proudly claim Augusta.
