UGA football walk-on gets scholarship

Duh… they give him the scholarship so he can pull up the team average grade. They have to have a few real students to offset the morons’ grades.

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand that.

Werll, since you Tech maggots are guaranteed to be here to bash this hard working young man and our dominant program (over yours), I guess I should share some news with you dorks…..

Your prized recruit, Romar Morris commited to UNC this evening, according to our very own Chip Towers, via his Twitter account, sourcing Scout.com. Now before you Techies start pulling the GT classics like “we didn’t want him anyway” or “he wouldn’t have fit in our program anyway”, please read the below story about him just a few days ago and check out the comments you dorks made about him. How awesome he would be as an “A-Back” and how much you absolutely NEED him.

http://blogs.ajc.com/recruiting/2010/08/10/tech-target-romar-morris-an-ideal-fit-at-a-back/

So, how’s that superior recruiting ability of Groh, and the Mighty Triple Option working out for you??

GO DAWGS!!!!! Now get off our Blog!!

Class act by Richt.

The only class thing that Richt could do is to resign. Otherwise UGA will continue to be slaughtered by Florida every year.

Note to Mark Richt: Resign now.
