At Blogs With Balls, Spencer Hall Showed, Um, Guts

Brian is right that "this is pure meta," but the inestimable Mr. Cook has provided the blogosphere with a tremendous service by transcribing the exchange that was hard to hear on the video but well worth your time to review. Enjoy, and express your gratitude to Orson Swindle for fighting the good fight! Go 'Dawgs!

Is Tennessee the New Michigan?

Brian Cook thinks so, and I, for one, consider the Tennessee-Michigan comparison brilliant! Go 'Dawgs!

Brian Cook Breaks Down the APR by Conference

The SEC is third, albeit only a couple of decimal points behind the second-place Big Ten. Georgia leads the league in APR, ahead of second-place Vanderbilt. Go 'Dawgs!

Helping Our Northern Brethren Get a Handle on Our References

Brian Cook finds "delightfully impenetrable" Paul Westerdawg's hilarious "LOOK AT THE WEEDEATERS FALLING FROM THE SKY!" reference, so I thought I'd do what I could to help anyone else who didn't get the reference. (In Brian's defense, if you didn't grow up listening to Larry Munson, I don't suppose there's any reason why that should make sense.) In 1982, Georgia beat Auburn at Jordan-Hare Stadium to capture a third straight SEC championship. In those days, the SEC champion automatically went to the Sugar Bowl. After the Bulldogs stopped the Tigers on fourth down to ensure a return trip to New Orleans, Larry Munson declared, "Look at the sugar falling from the sky!" In 1991, Georgia went to the Independence Bowl, which then was (infamously) sponsored by Poulan Weedeater. This pairing of the postseason game with its sponsor led to much mockery, so we in Bulldog Nation still think of it as the Poulan Weedeater Independence Bowl. Since Georgia may be going back to the Independence Bowl this year, Paul reworked the Munson line to substitute Weedeaters for sugar. This has been a public service announcement. Go 'Dawgs!

I Feel Brian Cook's Pain

Well, not his specific pain, of course. Given the metaphor he (aptly) chose to use, I should be quite clear upon that point. However, Brian Cook awoke on Saturday morning 100 per cent convinced that the right guy was leading his alma mater's football program, proceeded to watch his team get thumped by an orange-and-blue-clad conference rival that had known the shame and ignominy of being coached by Ron Zook, and came out of it thinking, "It's no longer crazy to think this may not work out after all." I'm right there with you, brother. I told you we were more alike than different. Go 'Dawgs!

No more calls, please; we have a winner!

Great headline, great posting, great point. Kudos to Brian. He nailed it. Go 'Dawgs!
