Say it ain’t so, Todd.

This is what’s wrong with capitalism.  I mean, say what you want about the tenets of amateurism, Dude, at least it’s an ethos that wouldn’t let Todd Gurley anywhere near orange and blue.

  1. Even with TG3s endorsement I refuse to drink that stuff. No way any of my $$ go to help UF if I can help it. PowerAid is made by Coca Cola a state of Georgia company. Easy choice IMO.

    • DawgPhan

      powerade is trash.

      • Jared S.

        I hate all Powerade, EXCEPT for the zero calorie blue stuff with the white label. It’s quite good. And beats all the “low calorie” Gatorade drinks.

      • James Stephenson

        The grape Powerade tastes like Grape koolaid. Even the zero cal stuff.

      • 92 grad

        Ok, the. What’s Gatorade? Look, I’d take their money too but I will never buy or drink that stuff. Ever. When it’s above 90° and I need to work outside all day (for work, as in my job) I will drink about 6 powerades. The red, purple, and blue ones are just fine. Any other time fruit juices are refreshing, sweet tea, or a variety of sodas. I hate drinking plain water but that little squirt bottle of Powerade zero concentrate is pretty good too.

  2. HVL Dawg

    Had to unfollow Todd, Keith and Conley last week for other reasons. I wish the best for all of them.

    • JRod1229

      Why is that?

    • Go Dawgs!

      Yes, best to refuse to hear any political view that isn’t your own.

      • HVL Dawg

        Then I guess you are enjoying following Isaiah Crowell?

        I wish the best for them. I just don’t need to be disappointed by their emotional rants. They’ll be fine without me.

        • Calidawg

          Crowell is a different story. I follow Gurley, Conley, and Marshall and I can’t recall a single “emotional rant.”

          • DawgPhan

            yeah i follow all those guys and i dont remember seeing anything emotional from any of them. Conley is always pretty guarded. Marshall has always been a struggle is real type of guy, but nothing emotional or ranty.

            Gurley is about money…whatever he is promoting and building brand.

        • Alex

          I wonder why they got so emotional about it?

          • HVL Dawg

            Fair. They have a lot of good reasons to be emotional about the state of relations. They are much more vested than I.

        • RandallPinkFloyd

          I’m sure they’re disappointed that you found them intolerant. You sound like a joy to be around.

    • PTC DAWG

      What is the point of “following” a sports star, etc? I assume you mean reading their various tweets or other bullshit.

  3. JT

    There are Nazis, dude?

  4. Russ

    You’re missing the point. He ran up and down their yard while in college, and now he’s just taking their lunch money.

  5. Go Dawgs!

    Hey, he’s taking Gatorade’s money and I’m sure some of it will one day end up donated to UGA one way or another. I’m good with it.

  6. Hogbody Spradlin

    Meh. I have to learn to accept these things. My daughter is going to South Carolina this fall. There are, however, about $22,000 reasons to be happy she isn’t going to Georgia.

    • sounds like “Capstone”? My daughter (child of two UGA alums) went to USC while the old nut sack was their coach…..that hurt.

  7. Gatorade tastes better than Powerade, but I still buy Powerade when I have the choice. #GatorsEatBoogers

  8. AusDawg85

    Todd who?

  9. Mark

    Can’t fault TGIII for the endorsement. Look, I’m a Dawg, and Coke over Pepsi guy any day BUT Gatorade is a better product. All that PowerAde on our sidelines is full of high fructose corn syrup whereas Gatorade is using real sugar. HFCG screws with our metabolism, kidney, and livers so I could make the case it puts the Dawgs at a competitive disadvantage. Rip me if you want, but go compare the labels.

    Mark

    • Cojones

      That sugar is probably from Florida’s polluting cane fields and runoff that has polluted rivers flowing into Okeechobee. They have openly contributed millions to the present Gov (this year and it’s his last election so it isn’t for his campaign chest) and have high-jacked billions intended years ago to improve water quality in Fl.. Fl sugar is subsidized as well and costs well more than what sugar-producing countries can get and what you pay for it. And I have only covered this topically. The underbelly will make you ill if you see how Big Sugar and politics have been screwing up your
      metabolism and that of your family.

      So, take a look at that conundrum before putting that orange-colored/flavored shit in your mouths. To avoid it, I buy agave syrup and use it on everything in place of sugar. It isn’t any more healthful except to my soul and the perception of what I am contributing to in hidden crookedness and greed that impacts the water that I drink. Yep, there are water companies who sell “spring water” and if you look closely on some gallonage that I buy, it’s made by the water Dept of Miami.

      • Got Cowdog

        Agave? This is why I buy Agave syrup.
        One large orange, 2 limes squeezed int cocktail mixer.
        1 tablespoon Agave nectar/ syrup (1/3 shot)
        2 oz (to taste, depends on score of Dawg’s game) Tequila

        Shake well, pour over ice and serve. My favorite skinny margarita

      • DawgByte

        Do you use Al “I invented the Internet” Gore’s web site to track your “Carbon Credits” too?

      [from July 2002 issue of Northwest Runner magazine]
      While lots of research has been devoted to the different varieties of sugars used in sports drinks, there is no clear consensus on which sugar or combination of sugars is best. Some data suggest that glucose polymers such as maltodextrin are absorbed and used more quickly than plain old glucose (Moodley et al., European Journal of Applied Physiology 64: 328-34, 1992; Bowtell et al., Journal of Applied Physiology 88: 1529-36, 2000). On the whole, however, the evidence for polymers vis-a-vis glucose is quite mixed (Convertino et al., Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise 28: i-vii, 1996; Shi & Gisolfi, Sports Medicine 25: 157-72, 1998; El-Sayed et al., Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology 118A: 789-803, 1997; Maughan, Proceedings of the Nutrition Society 57: 15-23, 1998). There are also suggestions that drinks with multiple types of sugars may deliver sugar more quickly than drinks that contain glucose alone (Jeukendrup & Jentjens, Sports Medicine 29: 407-24, 2000; Maughan, Proceedings of the Nutrition Society 57: 15-23, 1998), but further research is needed to test this idea.

      Here again, it’s a toss-up between Gatorade and Powerade. The Powerade polymers might offer some sort of edge, but, then again, maybe not.

  10. Got Cowdog

    Pop Warner football, Dekalb county mid 1970’s. Early season on a Saturday. August in Georgia hot (Can I get an Amen?) One of the parents brought us all a green Gatorade after practice, Ice cold in a glass bottle right out of the cooler. First time best time. That was good stuff for a 10 yr old football player, I’m telling you!
    So I’m a Gatorade guy. Sue me. At EE, #Gatorseatboogers+1

  11. Hobnail_Boot

    Too soon for a story about Todd Gurley signing anything.

  12. John Denver is full of shit...

    1 ltr water, 1 tsp salt, 6 tsp sugar, squeeze of lemon or lime.
    better than science in a plastic vessel thats most likely to give you the beetus
    the player drink 3 at a time after practice, i dont understand this with all the nutritionists around
    oh yeah
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$

    • DawgPhan

      Awesome joke about a chronic illness that impacts millions of children. That was great.

    • Todd should buy the old BULLDOG PUNCH trademark for a dollar, start his own company, put Gato-raid out of business, and keep all the money himself.

    • Cojones

      I’m not a Gatorade fan and never was nor will be, but that is an inaccurate list of ingredients found in the original Gatorade. I know this because , in a class exercise in animal physiology at UGA, we came up with a recipe for resupply of electrolytes very close to what was later published of ingredients in the first “Gatorade”.

      As you advertise, you are full of shit.

      • John Denver is full of shit...

        I didn’t claim it was the ingredients, i am however offering an alternative that does the same thing and better for you. vs the amount of sugar in a cheap mass produced drink served as a healthy option through men in white coats on the 1st gatorade commercial.

  13. PTC DAWG

    Good for Todd, make that money while you can.

  14. Cojones

    I have no problem whatsoever with Todd Gurley making a bundle in advertisements. More power to a great Dawg.

  15. Macallanlover

    His contract will not influence me at all, PowerAde Zero, no contest. Surely no Dawg drinks gator-aids.

  16. Uglydawg

    Four cubes of frozen spring water, 1 shot of Eagle Rare or Wild Turkey, one drop of either Power Ade, Gatorade or preferably spring water. Let set for thirty seconds while you find a place to sit and sip under a shade tree. Make sure you’re chair will lean back against the tree trunk for a nap. Make sure the tree is far enough away from the house that you can’t hear a call. If you have the old recording, ” Munson’s Greatest Calls”, you can listen to it.

  17. That’s money in the bank. A payment for all his angst on those autographed.

  18. This is what is right with capitalism…..if your good enough,and Todd is, even the the enemy is giving you money ,,,beside the non-free market(i.e. the NCAA) made him sit four games for signing his name…..I don’t think that qualifies as a better result…..Take the money and run Todd.
