How big is football in south Georgia?

It’s so big that they use public school buses to ferry folks to the really big college games.

The Valdosta Daily Times reports school buses stolen from Lowndes County in south Georgia have been recovered at the site of the Georgia-Florida football game.

Georgia won that game, of course, because the Gators and their fans are mostly sissies.

The buses were stolen in October and the game was played Saturday.

The Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office was contacted Saturday by someone who said the buses could be found at the stadium.

The school system retrieved the buses Tuesday.

The article does not say if keys were found with the vans or if the vehicles were broken into, but this smells as fishy as a week old dead gator.

A thief is a piece of scum no matter if hr steals a piece of gum or a school bus.

I’m surprised foul mouthed Georgie Mathis didn’t blame the bus theft on whitey.

I am not Florida fan, but Id much prefer their ’sissies’ (as you called them) , vs thugs that steal vehicles that are paid for by tax payers to help children. Way to set a good example George.

Dawg fans carpooling, being “green”. Think about all the carbon they didn’t put into the air by “borrowing” the buses. GOOOOO DAWGS!

George, it looks you need to attract a more articulate crowd. Try using words of three to five syllables and winnow out the mouth breathers.

Buses were used by work release program to bring the Bulldogs to the game from their cells.

What bothers me is that it took 3 days to find someone in Fla that could read what it said on the side of the bus so they would know whom to call Must have had to call someone in from St. Simon’s to come down there to clarify this issue for them.

However to be driven from Lowndes County to the Florida Georgia Game and not Ticketed? It was NOT POOKIE who was driving!

This driver was met with smiles and waves of come on in!

Stolen in Oct in GA. and just now turning up in FL? It’s a shame they were not painted yellow so they could be spotted easily! AND it’s a shame they did not have Lowndes Co. on the side to identify them easily ! Were they not short of buses for school? First I have seen it in the news. Did they not put out BOLO’s on them, so people would be looking for them? This story sounds rather “fishy” to me and I am not a fisherman! GM, did you make this story up?

UFboy @ 2:13 pm – With a Name like George Mathis what newspaper would say NO to hiring him. Look at that Face….looks familiar to me. Just like the other 200 million Georges.

Were the buses found filled with newspaper like that dead kid? Maybe Jay Bookman is really a psycho bus thief serial killer

Florida officials didn’t recognize them.. If they were short buses, they would have figured it out much quicker and longed for a ride, themselves.

Even though I’m a DAWG fan, can’t let this one go by: I’ll bet they were short buses the Georgia fans rode to the game! LOL! Now that’s funny; I don’t care who you are!
