    Niiice. Mom may had said it won't affect their recruiting of the younger son, but I'll believe it when I see him signing a LOI for UGA.

    The parents probably should have had enough sense not to come decked out head to toe in OSU stuff. That said, Georgia should have not made such a big deal of it. Dumb on their part.

    Has Elaine Benes' struggles not taught us anything: You don't wear an Orioles cap in the owner's box.

    Still, I hope Georgia loses this kid for this reason and this reason only. Granted, the parents didn't show a whole lot of good judgment, but I think kicking them out because of their choice of clothing is stupid.

    As a UGA grad, I think I can say without any bias whatsoever that anyone who voluntarily wears any shade of orange should be shot on sight.

    This is why college football in the south sucks.

    You blaspheme, pallister!

    One of the greatest stories I have ever read - indeed, THE greatest single work I have read by this particular ESPN young Frackin' stud - was a recent one about the glory and grandeur of Southern Football.

    That cracked me up. That was the response I was looking for.

    I didn't go to UGA, but I lived in Atlanta long enough to say this should be written into law. In fact, it's probably in there somewhere and we just don't know it.

    Well, not exactly this reason. But college football certainly sucks.
