What does this mean?
Before you say “absolutely nothing”, let me borrow some words from the recently departed former famous voice of the Georgia Bulldogs, Larry Munson: “They’re so much bigger than we are. Look how much more experience they have. Look at the records…we got pounded in every game and those guys should be undefeated. Our little guys look like the JV’s lining up against the Varsity. Oh, it’s gonna be a long night. Come on clock, we’re getting killed out there. Come on guys hunker down one more time…run clock run... 10…5…3..2..1..0…!
WE WIN!! How did we do that?
OK, they got us outnumbered, they got more experience, they are bigger than we are and half of their roster is from North Carolina which (with apologies to Nick Dawson) I didn’t know was a hotbed of HS football talent (although my son informed that the #1 RB in the country is from NC and has committed to UGA) We will find out how good NC H.S. football talent is and report soon.
What it really means is that we’re going batty waiting for this game. Grasping at straws and adult beverages while we wait! Christmas and Santa are commin' and so are the Cards!
We’ve got them on the deep south recruiting which translates into speed. I pick our coaches with their ability to pick apart defenses against their uk arch connection. So, we have speed, youth & as I reviewed both coaching staffs, we have the edge in experience in big time games that count. Charlie has been there and on the winning side.
Early line has them at +2.5 points. Bet that is just because the game is in NC. And, if you thought lakinit was a bit wierd with his Dagwood sandwiches etc back in August, you oughta be talkin' to him now or ridin' to the game with us!
