Nice to see a classy Gator fan stop by for a visit. We always appreciate another opinion, though making comments such as these are the types of things that make you look stupid. This is a Georgia blog written by Georgia graduates, so of course we are going support our team. If you disagree what is written, please feel free to leave comments, though I would prefer you do it in a constructive manner.

No wonder Ellerbe didn't get drafted said...

"Constructive"

......hmmm coming from the same guys who go to an opposing teams stadium and give the finger in front of the swamp....and you ask me to be classy. Nice try bubba n earl.Anyway since we are both asking for a little class, I have a question.How long will GEORGIA fans wait on coach Richt,considering he has the same talent as last year,wait on him to win the national championship.THIS COMES FROM A GUY WHO REALLY THOUGHT GEORGIA HAD THE WEAPONS TO WIN IT ALL LAST YEAR!

Native, if you're so opinionated, grow some balls and write your own damn blog.

One thing I am thankful for about playing in Jacksonville every year is never having to see "The Swamp". it would be a waste of energy for any UGA fan to flick it off; ain't worth the effort.

And fwiw, gator girls like it doggy style!
