Banner bleg

I’ve thought about making this request before, never have, but what the hell…

Lord knows I’ve gotten a ton of appreciative comments about the blog’s banner, as well as plenty of questions about its origins.  All I really know is guesswork, which means not much.

Anyway, I’d really like to know something more definitive about the story.  If there’s a reader out there who knows Coach Dooley, or anyone else who was present when the presser occurred (I assume that’s what was going on there) and can get him/her to open up about what went down, I’d love to hear about it.

Not just about the Godfather, either.  Somebody’s got to tell me about that shirt Dooley’s wearing.  Inquiring minds want to know, and all that.

    Dooley’s shirt? I thought for sure you would know all about mid-70s fashion.

    I think your contact in the Hargrett Library (UGA football history) might be able to help you out. Email me offline if you don’t have his contact info (I work at the UGA Libraries, too.)

      Seriously? I spent a memorable Fat Tuesday in there a few years back. I’ve read somewhere that it was recently sold. It’s been dormant for a while.

    I think that’s a mid 70s Guess shirt. I think he had a belt buckle with a similar logo as well.

    Can’t wait for the answers and story tomorrow!

    I always thought it was funny that vince’s Shirt was the genesis behind the “power” button icon. Back then there was no such thing.

    I picture this whole scene to be something akin to what you might see in the movie Airplane.

    The very first time I came here and saw that banner, I distinctly remember thinking “Why the fuck does this guy have a still from ‘Repo Man’ as his top banner?” Then I looked closer.
