In the ATL, but not of it


Coach, just because you own the place doesn’t mean you have to dress like that.

  1. Can’t wait to see some of you guys try and defend THAT!


    • Nope … my thought was, “What the hell was he thinking?”

        They make him do THAT, though?

        Exactly … this is why fans get upset when a coach leaves for a new job etc.

        Once you enter the business, primary loyalty is to the organization paying the salary. CMR works for ACC Network now so if they provided him gear to wear for the shoot then he is obligated to wear it.

        Reminds me of m graduate faculty adviser who relayed a story to me about a grad student who came through the program a few years ahead of me. He was a die-hard Auburn Tigers fan. Grew up near Auburn, went to Auburn games all his life, and one of his parents worked for the University. Didn’t matriculate at Auburn but only because he played baseball at Samford. His dream job was in the Auburn Athletic Dept though – the only problem was that when he got his Master’s Auburn did not have a job opening.

        But you know who did have an opening? Alabama’s Athletic Association. So he applied and he interviewed and they offered. My graduate adviser said that he agonized for a couple of days, trying to determine if he could do it – go work for the Tide. The adviser encouraged him to do it. The job was good one in his chosen field even if it was at Alabama. So the guy went for it and a few months later sent the adviser a handwritten note thanking the adviser for his encouragement and that he was really happy with his job. The thank you note was written Crimson Tide stationary and at the bottom under his signature, the former student had scribbled “Roll Tide” with the post-script “Please keep this confidential but it’s still weird writing Roll Tide!”

      It was cold in the building, he forgot to bring a jacket, and that was all they had available. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!)

      Might be a little jab at the school that fired him – not only fired him but did it in a very clumsy way.
      Let me add I’m more than pleased with his replacement.

    Someone needs to tell Richt that when you own the facility, you tell them what to wear

    Add one more loss to GT’s ledger. Every time he has visited that campus previously that’s happened, so why stop now?

    My bro once wore a gator hat when he was interviewed on a local news channel. Everybody else was like, “oh, you did so good” but my first question was WTF was on his head. He said one of the pretty newscasters was a UF grad and she dared him to do it. I just shook my head in disappointed silence. Anything to make a pretty girl smile, I guess.

    And we thought politics made strange bedfellows.

    Never trust the fashion sense of a guy who thought black helmets were a good idea.

    I’m gonna go ahead and say this is a troll job of the highest order. If Tech fans paid attention to Tech football before Thanksgiving they would be livid.

    He has more wins in Atlanta than Geoff Collins.

    They made him wear it to cover his GA tshirt. But really we fire him and some of you think he should should be loyal if you were fired would you go around wearing your old employers clothes? I think not. He works for the ACC network.

    Sorry Mark but you shouldn’t have done that.


    • Gaskilldawg

      I figure his current employer told him to wear the gear of the team he is covering. I will bet he wears Boston College gear when he goes there.

      His boss gives him a paycheck. He was never a Georgia alum, just an employee of UGA. Why he should say “No” to his current boss to appease the boss who fired him?

    Why does the acc network get Richt, while the sec network gets carnival barking clowns like Finebaum and Tebow?

    • @Finebaum/Tebow – I don’t get it either.

      SEC equivalent to Richt is probably Gene Chizik – studio jobs during the season. I don’t think ACC network has a morning show like the SEC does. Maybe I am wrong there though.
