The spirit of Booch lives on.

An alert reader tipped me to this story.  Clever catchphrase, Vol fans.

The SEC East is a really strange neighborhood these days.

    We were wearing similar red hats in Chicago in reference to our own program last year, so for once I cannot throw stones at UT.

    I can abide the hat I suppose.. but that Orange color is just a bridge too far for me.. It makes my retinas bleed.

    I like using the phrase ironically, like, “Make Sanford Stadium Concessions Great Again,” but this stupid slogan always seemed like a joke to me.

    Also, where’s the dumb rope across the brim?

    UT will never see the days of Fulmer/Manning/1998 ever again, and they were damn lucky to see them in the first place.

    The state’s population is a small 6.7mm, while Georgia is at 10.4 and Florida at 21. Tennessee is closer to South Carolina (5mm) in terms of population and overall resources, although Nashville has become a first tier city, for what that is worth.

    UT’s glory era came at the expense of Georgia losing battles for in state talent. This is well documented. That ain’t happening again folks. Tennessee, South Cack, and Clemson all make a living off of Georgia talent. Everyone raids Florida (pop. 21mm).

    I understand it only takes a roster of 85 to build a champion, however Tennessee has nothing to offer that it’s enemies do not already provide.

    It is highly unlikely that the Vols will ever see a period of sustained success that they experienced in the 90’s. The landscape has forever changed.

        Back in his day, Georgia’s population was at 3.45 million, Tennessee was at 3.31 million, Florida at 2.81 million Those are figures from 1950. The one lesson I would take from their success of 20 years ago is that it depends in great measure on sustained mediocrity in Athens. Such was the case through most of the 1950s as it was during the majority of the 1990s.

    Hope they give one of those hats to every visiting recruit. Really, just cut the b.s. and go back to white hoods and burning crosses.

      Just kidding. The conference loyalty thing is a non-starter with me.

        agreed. I guess it’s a silver lining if an SEC team I hate wins against an out of conference opponent, but let’s face it: every time Auburn gets its ass kicked, an angel gets its wings, and also a 40 ounce Guinness. Ditto UT, the Gators, the Chikins, etc. Anyone else see a pattern here? While I enjoy pointing out the toughness of the SEC, I wouldn’t pull for most any of the other members without a substantial and distinct benefit to UGA

    I’d like to see one that says “From Brick by Brick to Shit a Brick.” But maybe that fits better on a tee instead.

    President Trump said it best. Y’all hate him because he is richer than you, smarter than you, and he is President and you’re not.

      I don’t like Trump because he’s an incompetent asshole who’s using his office to make himself richer while he fucks over most other people. Well, that and a few other things.

      Thinking Trump is smart takes an exceptionally stupid person. Of course that’s never been a secret. His base is literally comprised of only poorly educated people. The same kind of rubes who think the character he played on The Apprentice is who he is in real life. You know, wrestling fans that get upset when you tell them it isn’t real.

        Poorly educated? I don’t know how you define “poorly educated” but my education consists of the following: Bachelors degree from UGA, Doctorate from the Medical College of Ga, and 4 years of post doctorate training. You might want to look up the definition of “literally”. I think it is obvious that you are the exceptionally stupid person.

          Jesus Gurkha, you’re a highly educated medical doctor, and the best you can come up with is “Wrong. I already told you why you don’t like President Trump.”. I’ll discuss Trump with a 10 year old if I want that kind of weak ass response.

    Just fucking with the commies on a slow Friday. My original comment was just a good natured jab at the Trump haters. The Senator responded with a good natured jab of his own. It was you Doug and Chili who started the bullshit flame throwing. Relax and enjoy the gains in your 401k.
