I honestly don’t know what took me so long, but I’ve added an obvious entry to the Lexicon this morning.

There are times I really ‘feel’ this is true. It may be because we have been good enough to warrant the attention of the teams above us but still ‘reachable’ for the teams below us.
That one goes way back for sure. Don’t forget to fix the spelling on Dantzlering as well. Let’s give the man his proper due.
Dyslexia strikes again!
Thanks for catching that.
Speaking of Dantzlering, I was driving home listening to 960 the day they announced the big home game against Austin Peay in ’18. Did you know that’s going to be a great home schedule in ’18 and that we have to schedule those teams if we want a shot? It’s true.
Did that idiot Dantzler really say the home schedule in ’18 is great? The AD must have some pictures of him in some compromising positions.
“Best Shot” may be in jest, but I have been saying for years we seem to be everyones “rival” or this game is circled on the calendar.
No doubt because it is a truism, there is probably even more reason for this at UGA than anyone else when you add in this one additional factor: we are more likely than any other talented team to take the day off, or find some new, totally ridiculous way for us, or the officials, to lose an unlosable game. It has to inspiring, and included in every coach’s game remarks and preparation. “Guys, I really mean it this time, we can really beat them and pull the shocker. Trust me on this, you will be on every highlight show on Saturday night and the Upset Alert selected by all the Taking Heads.”
That separates us from the Bamas, OUs, ohios, etc., as a talented, ranked team whose hide will look great on every mediocre team’s wall. Now it may not be necessary to have a Lexicon entry since we should certainly have a death grip on exclusive use of the term by now, or could easily just roll it under The Georgia Way.
We get a lot of teams’ best shot because there are usually some former Georgia high school players on that team because they didn’t get an offer from UGA. I would especially say that about the teams in the SEC and Georgia tech.
Seriously, don’t we have the most rivals in college football?
Wouldn’t it be attributable to pure geography? Even even further, recruiting implications of the geography?
Probably, but that makes it no less crazy that, in a year we play Clemson, it could be argued fully half of Georgia’s games can be classified as a rivalry game.
