    UGA is in bottom 10 not us. Who would have expected this a week ago

    5. Ugh-uh (5-1)
    As I departed Athens on Saturday night and stopped for fuel among the nearby outlet malls of Commerce, Georgia, an older gentleman dressed in a well-worn Herschel Walker jersey approached from his truck with bourbon breath, wobbly knees and two fists full of boiled peanuts and Old Trapper beef jerky. "Hey, ESPN guy!" he garbled. "We gonna be in that damned ol' Converted Fifth Sport, ain't we?" Then, spotting the orange "T" of my alma mater in the back window of my pickup, he declared that he was going to run over me "like Herschel did to Bill Bates!" But instead, he threw his arms around me and cried. I'm pretty sure it was Ray Goff.

    Bottom 10 inspirational thought of the week:

    Mine eyes have seen the glory
    Of the coming of the Lord.
    He is trampling out the vintage
    Where the grapes of wrath are stored.
    He hath loosed the fateful lightning
    Of His terrible swift sword.
    His truth is marching on.


    -- "Battle Hymn of the Republic" by Julia Ward Howe

    Here at Bottom 10 Headquarters, located in the mini storage unit where Ivan Maisel keeps all of his mint condition Bobby Dodd biographies, we spend most of the season hunkered down like hairy Dawgs here at, well, Bottom 10 Headquarters.

    But occasionally our bosses give us a furlough to go out into the world and watch a team get laidlough, er, I mean laid low. That's what I did on Saturday. I spent a lovely day between the hedges watching South Carolina at Georgia, the most shocking fall of an Athens since the Persians invaded Greece. Only these Persians didn't enter Athens in a Trojan Horse. They rode in on the back of an angry Palmetto State rooster.

    Hang on ... I have a call on the other line ... please hold ...

    OK, that was my old college World Civ professor. He says that last metaphor was so historically inaccurate that he is retroactively failing me in a class in which I thought I already had an A.

    In other words, I now know exactly how Georgia feels.

    With apologies to Larry Munson and Steve Harvey, here's this week's Bottom 10.

    I don’t think we could consistently beat more than 1 or 2 of the actual bottom 10 teams

    UT has given us Mr. McGee and his Bottom 10, Gene Wojciechowski and ... Finebaum.
    Two out of three ain't bad.

    I’m not sure you’re bright enough to understand this thread.
