University of Georgia

University of Georgia

It’s almost that time when we’ll be “goin’ back to Athens town,” and to help get you into the spirit of the season we continue our rundown of reasons to be a fan of the Bulldogs. Here, in no particular order, are 20 more. …

21. You can’t spell “Sugar” without “UGA.”

22. The electricity in the air when you step on the Sanford Drive bridge before a game.

23. Appleby-to-Washington.

24. Dan Magill and the loudest tennis crowds in America.

25. Sinkwich and Trippi in the same backfield.

26. “Glory, Glory Dixieland.”

27. Red and black, the best color combination in sports.

28. Verron Haynes in the checkerboard end zone.

29. Teaching a child to say “Go Dogs!” (Especially if he belongs to your Gator neighbor!)

30. Vince Dooley’s sideline body English.

31. Kevin Butler kicking it “a hundred thousand miles” against Clemson.

32. The Gym Dogs’ 10 national championships.

33. Foley Field’s six College World Series banners (twice as many as the school in Atlanta).

34. A jersey number retired for good reason.

35. “Keep your seats everyone, the Redcoats are coming!”

36. Dominique Wilkins.

37. Kudzu Hill.

38. Jake “the Snake” Scott.

39. Uga V lunging at Auburn’s Robert Baker.

40. A crisp fall day in Athens — as close to heaven on earth as you can get.

I’m just curious as to what else you do with your life? I’m sure the AJC appreciates that you look at their sports page, 24/7 but do you do anything else?

42. UGA will always own Tech. GT will win a few but never the bulk. Just is what it is and another fine reason to root for UGA

HBTD!!!

I also remember the other Chicken Bowl when we played Tech, and they had Godsey back there as QB…..We went thru em like crap thru a “Goose” so to speak…….Kinda fitting, because Godsey was so scared on every snap, he was literally about to crap his pants. Again, crap thru a “Goose”……

Keep ‘em coming, imposter, however, surely a “smarter than you” tech fan can come up with something better than your 8:38 and 8:40 posts. Gay and bipolar? That’s the best you got, or are you “coming out”?
