On whether he has Thanksgiving traditions or if that is hard as a college coach…
“It’s tough to do in coaching. We have traditions a little bit for my family and for players and things like that in terms of eating. We try to always have a good meal on Thanksgiving Day, kind of after the practice in the morning, Then we also have a meal when we come back, because traditionally we would go to Georgia Tech or Georgia Tech would come to us, and we would have a big team meal Friday upon the return of all the players. So, that’s what we’ve always done.”
This is your reminder that not playing Tech this year totally sucks. I know some of you disagree, but that just means you’re wrong.
I’m laying a marker down now. If it’s Georgia’s fate to play in a meaningless bowl game, rather than schedule one against the likes of Texas or Northwestern or some other program I really don’t give a damn about, how ’bout the Dawgs line up the Jackets? Remember, there is no win eligibility requirement to go bowling this season.
Hell, at least extend them the opportunity. At a minimum, we’d get the pleasure of them turning it down out of sheer cowardice; in a best case scenario, we’d get to watch another ass whoopin’. It’s a win-win.
Play ’em anywhere ESPN says. I don’t care. But make the attempt, Greg. That’s all I’m asking of you. Surely you’ve banked enough good will with Sankey to get his blessing for this.
