No love lost

It seems Junior didn’t take kindly to Jimbo’s comments in the preseason.

    On a weird way and in spite of myself I’m kinda warning to Junior a little bit. He just owns being a doosh. Something about that is kind of refreshing. He’s not like Jumbo making excuses and trying justify this or that. Or Saban. He is what he is and he’s comfortable with it.

    Lane was on a tear night. Even going after A&M players during the game when they were faking injuries.

    Here is what Kiffin said in a later interview:
    “I don’t give you coachspeak. That’s real. Most coaches will say no. But that’s real. When someone attacks you personally and calls you and your good buddy coach Saban both clowns, you take that personal. I’m glad we won. I guess I can be a clown for Halloween now.”

    I don’t like Kiffin, but that doesn’t make it any less fun to watch A&M and Jimbo lose.

  7. Nobody, and I do mean nobody, in the industry has anything good to say about Jimbo.

    Universally disliked.

    I have a first hand account of Lane hearing about a OM fan’s son passing away. Not big time boosters. Just regular folks that live in that part of Mississippi. Lane and his people get this guys number, Lane calls him with condolences, Lane follows up with texts, and send flowers to the funeral. The dude also hosted damn near an entire high school prom at his house for photos and refreshments. He seems to be a genuine guy. I’ve known a lot of crappy people that started living better as they got older.

      Lane got given high profile jobs went he was not ready and when he was immature.
      I am not a fan of his, or a Lane hater, but I give him credit for personal growth.

    While Vince Dooley is on my mind I want to reflect on the fact that Dooley publicly never said anything disrespectful about any opposing coach or team.
    I would bet everything I have that he told Georgia people privately how he felt about opponents but he represented UGA with class and dignity in public.
    Jimbo is the polar opposite.
    That goodness for Dooley types.

    Mr. Gaskilldawg,
    Coach Dooley was actually the man you describe. We would all go to the cafeteria and wait for the Dooley show. He would never disrespect an opposing coach are any player, especially his on players but he would say, “we did not have our team ready to play”. We all knew that it meant bloody Tuesday was going to be Double Bloody Tuesday. And it always was. He was a man of his word. I will always have a ton of respect for the man. He asked me to come to GA and play for him. I let him down and I will always regret that. (even though it was best for me, I am sure, he understood)

      Mr WHB, I agree with you on Coach Dooley. He was an Officer and a gentleman, great HC, builder of Men and wonderful ambassador for UGA. I think you’re being a bit hard on yourself. Everyone has their breaking point. Some folks bodies are built to take that kind of punishment on the gridiron. Some folks get busted up and look at their future and make a business decision.
      I know I let some folks down, but it was for the best for me. Football? Next man up. I was tired after 9 years of sports. Developed a new interest.
      When I made the decision not to continue my career in the yankee Army the Post Commander called me to his office toward the end of my terminal leave. Long conversation from a real gentleman with the troop’s best interest at heart. In a nutshell he said that I was exceptional and one day I’d be watching the news and see a bad end for some soldiers and know that I could have done a better job. It was selfish of me to put my well-being over that of the men. That wound up being prophetic. I could carry that guilt but I don’t. Well for the most part I don’t. I made an impact in another area that I never would have had I stayed in the military. I look where I am now and am amazed at my happiness. I got it fuckn made.
      As long as you’re happy you can’t worry too much about those past decisions. But it doesn’t hurt to let it nibble at you. Hell, regret is how we grow.
      This run the Dawgs are making is double chocolate frosting on my cake.
      Geez I’m full of shit.
