It’s not every day you see a kid commit based on the strength of a school’s tailgating.

    Well, if any school was gonna land a recruit on the strength of its tailgating scene, it couldn’t be anyone but Ole Miss.

    If the dude is being honest it would have to be the female population at Ole Miss. I have been all over the conference and the women at UGA are incredible but the young ladies at Ole Miss were next level national championship caliber. I can see why they used to win so many Miss America pageants back in the day.

    The Grove is overrated.

    True. Party too hard and in no time, he’ll be out there tailgating with them.

    Somebody grab him and tell him Katy Perry doesn’t show up for all the games.

  8. No one commented on the fact that Ole Miss has established a link to one of the state’s football powers and a fertile recruiting site??????

    I thought the grove was great. The bag man in the corner and all those five leaf shade trees only added to the ambiance.

    Not more than a month ago you Senator argued that the good tailgating in JAX influences the outcome of games and we need to keep the WLOCP game there because of it. Saw it right here. I don’t think this Grove thing is any sillier than that.

    • … you Senator argued that the good tailgating in JAX influences the outcome of games and we need to keep the WLOCP game there because of it.

      That is not what I said, Mayor. I’ve quoted Ben Jones who noticed the tailgating scene as the team crossed the bridge. Never said anything about an effect on games.

      It’s a unique tradition that you’re more than willing to toss away because you think Georgia would win more games on a home-and-home basis. I get that. You don’t need to make up shit to justify your position, though.

        I didn’t make up any shit. Go back and read it. I posted on that thread that tailgating never won any games. In direct response to what I said, and in support of the notion that the crowd at the tailgates in JAX somehow influences game outcomes, you repeated the Jones quote. Revisionist history is so….well….revisionist. 🙂 P.S. I say lots of shit without making anything up. Have for years on this very blog. 🙂

        • Mayor, here’s the quote you’re referring to:

          Aside from the 50/50 split inside the stadium, the equal numbers of Georgia and Florida fans tailgating beforehand and the Gators not playing in Gainesville, (t)he FU game is like an away game…

          FIFY.

          There’s nothing in that indicating that tailgating wins or loses games, just that Jax is a neutral site affair. That you chose later in the thread to put your particular spin on it doesn’t change anything.

            You cherry picked the wrong part of the post, Senator. Read the parts above and below what you quoted above. By quoting players reactions to seeing crowds of pro-Georgia tailgaters you clearly were insinuating that having the pro-Georgia tailgate crowd helps us win the game. Of course you should be trying to back away from that because that is total nonsense. I invite anyone on this blog to read the entire exchange and not come to the same conclusion that I did. This is a loser for you Bluto. Remember the First Rule of Holes.

              Nope.

              Here’s your quote that I responded to:

              Georgia plays at LSU, FU in JAX, at U.K. and Auburn all consequetively. The FU game is like an away game (sorry if I hurts anyone’s delicate fee fees by saying that) and Kentucky in Lexington at night isn’t a walkover. IMHO that stretch is just about as difficult as the others mentioned in the post. Welcome to the SEC.

              The part in bold is what I responded to.

              I’ve written hundreds of things at the blog about the Cocktail Party. I invite you to find a single example of where I’ve ever claimed that tailgating affected the outcome of a game.

              The “insinuating” part is gold, though, I gotta admit. I can’t refute what’s in your head.

                The FU game IS an away game–it isn’t played at Sanford Stadium. What is Georgia’s winning percentage ‘Tween the Hedges? What is Georgia’s winning percentage playing in the Gator Bowl, Jacksonville Municipal Stadium or whatever they are calling that place this week? The difference is what we are losing by playing the WLOCP in JAX instead of home and away. That’s what I’m saying. Plus in even numbered years the Dawgs only get 3 SEC home games. That’s a disadvantage against the whole SEC East. Sometimes the Dawgs have overcome that disadvantage but why should they have to? Because some fans want a fun trip to the beach in the fall? Because the school makes a few more bucks by being bribed by the City of Jacksonville to play there? Those aren’t very good reasons IMHO. I’m all about winning and putting the team in the best possible position to win. Period. If you’re not, just go ahead and admit it instead of coming up with BS excuses like “tradition” to justify something that really isn’t justifiable.

                • Mayor, I already know about this. I respect your position on the game, even if I disagree.

                  But what does any of this have to do with you claiming I believe tailgating impacts games?
