“I know it’s going to be different than Australia.”

Chip Towers’ interview with Brett Thorson, the Aussie punter who just committed to Georgia, is everything you’d hope it would be.

“As far as the football goes, I know Georgia is as big as it can get,” Thorson said. “It’s like a religion to them. They just love football. I’ve watched all the videos and been told it, but I don’t think I’ll truly understand the scale of it until I’m there in person and see it myself.”

Amen, mate.

    I commented on being in Sydney on R&R during the moon landing. The Aussie’s were wild about the project partly because they had a tracking station and were vital to the whole deal. They made a movie called “The Dish” that is a semi-comedy about their involvement. This is a great scene about cultural disconnect.

    You know he’s all in when he’s willing to be heard calling it “football” in his motherland

    I wonder if they will try to coach him to kick it high with hang time?

    I wish I could see his face when he sees and hears a fully packed Sanford Stadium and barking Dawgs!


  5. Now, who’s going to teach him the proper meaning of “BBQ”?

    He’ll be just like an American kicker, except that when the ball is in the air it’ll rotate the other way
