The Oklahoman’s Berry Tramel looks us over and finds we’re not crazy.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t Georgia football strike you as sort of normal? Not normal as in average. Normal as in not kooky. Normal as in Michigan or Penn State or Oklahoma or Nebraska or Notre Dame or Southern Cal. Normal as in passionate and dedicated and over the moon about the football team in Athens. But also normal as in not still fighting the Civil War.
The latter is the feeling you get every time you’re around the likes of LSU or Auburn or Alabama or Tennessee. That’s the impression you get listening to the Paul Finebaum Show, which whether it means to or not is a daily dose of making fun of the South.
We don’t yell PAWWWLLL!!! So we’ve got that going for us. Hey, you gotta start somewhere.
