At this point we all know that Will Muschamp grew up in Gainesville, Florida, before playing football for Georgia as a walk-on and eventually becoming a valued asset of the pro-UGA deep-state as a secret ag- I mean, errr um, head football coach. We all know Will Muschamp became the head football coach for the Florida Gators and South Carolina Gamecocks where he has been worth every penny and tried very hard, and most certainly hasn’t lost six out of seven games he’s coached against his alma mater. What we didn’t know is that Herschel Walker and the Dawgs made a young Will Muschamp cry in 1980, and he now makes his children watch the Belue-to-Scott play whenever the game is aired on the SEC Network. In his article on how the South has shaped and defined college football, Dennis Dodd of CBS gives us that story as well as some excellent anecdotes from Herschel’s high-school days. Being the Head Chicken, I usually don’t have anything nice to say about Will, but it’s hard not to respect his sense of history, and he gets some points for exposing his children to beautiful things. Here’s hoping the Dawgs give him plenty more to be melancholy about this season.
Speaking of the upcoming season, Handicapper Danny Sheridan went on the Paul Finebaum Show yesterday and predicted Georgia will beat Alabama for the SEC Championship before winning the CFP National Title over Clemson. Finebaum listeners from the state of Alabama handled Sheridan’s predictions with all the serene calm and level-headed reason you might expect. For what it’s worth, Sheridan did place a bet prior to last season on who would be the eventual national champion, with all proceeds going to charity. He picked Clemson. Let’s all hope Sheridan is right again, because beating Alabama and Clemson in the same season with championship rings on the line would just be ***kisses fingers like an Italian Chef***
It would most likely spell disaster for Georgia if he has to take any significant snaps this season, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get to know the 3rd man on Georgia’s quarterback depth chart, Nathan Priestly.
Lastly, while it isn’t the Dawgs playing, there’s real, live college football being played by Florida and Miami in 55 hours. Spencer Hall of the freshly launched Banner Society is here to tell you how to watch it or any other college football game. It’d be a shame if a certain team from the bowels of hell in North-Central Florida, whose fans and coach have talked rather large this off-season, lost a game before anyone else played one. Just tragic to consider...
It won’t be long now y’all... GO DAWGS!
