I knew this was the case when he literally, not proverbially mind you, f-d the Falcon players, fellow coaches, and management when he ‘midnight falconed’ his way to Fayetteville.
… Pretty good stuff, but it gets even better in his appraisal of Petrino: “He is a coward. Put that in quotes. He ruined a bunch of people’s lives, a bunch of people’s families, kids, because he didn’t have enough nuts to stay there and finish the job. That’s the truth.”
When asked if he had seen a two days like that before, where the Falcons lost on Monday Night Football, a coach resigns and then is doing “Woo Pig Sooey” 24 hours later in front of Arkansas boosters, Zimmer said: “No, most people in football have enough courage about them and enough fight to stick through something and not quit halfway through the year. It is cowardly.
“He came in and said he resigned, he would talk to us all at a later date, walked out of the office and no one has ever talked to him since. Not that anybody wanted to.
“He’s a gutless b—–d. Quote that. I don’t give a s—.”
When told that we might might not be able to use the B word, Zimmer went one better: “How about this, gutless MF. You can use that.”
Piece of shit, told you.
Georgia adds Charleston Southern and Georgia Southern to the 2014 and 2016 football schedules, respectively. Greg McGarity wants one FCS foe each season.
Bobby Bowden speaks at the Touchdown Club of Georgia on Tuesday and advises CMR to “stay the course”.
“I’ve been through the same thing, and if you stay in the game long enough you are going to go through it one time or the other,” Bowden said. “And of course it really tests ya, it really tests ya. But it’s the nature of the game. The game is that way — if you win they love you, if you don’t win they don’t love you. It’s as simple as that. Your loyal people will stay behind you, but the everyday fan … they want to win. That’s the way it happened down here [at Florida State]. I wasn’t winning enough games to suit these people, you know? But anyway, Mark’s a little different situation because he is younger and he’s been so successful there.”
During that same meeting, Richt warns players that “it could get worse”.
“We’re going to have to get better or it’s gonna get worse. It’s not going to stay the same. I told the players, you think it’s bad now; it could get worse.”
But no matter what, Richt said, “we’re not gonna lose our poise, we’re not gonna lose our integrity. We don’t want to take our frustrations out on anyone, except maybe Colorado. … We just have to keep working hard and keep together. We must stay together.”
Not related to Georgia football, but awesome nonetheless… Jax Jaguars WR Kassim Osgood gets pistol-whipped during a gun fight between a cheerleader and her intruding/stalking ex-boyfriend. My favorite part quoted below:
Osgood, 30, reportedly leaped out a second-floor window to get away from the armed man late Monday.
The gun-wielding intruder exchanged fire with the woman after putting a gun to her head, saying, “What did that football player say to his girlfriend, it’s a good day to die,” misquoting ex-Florida Gators player Chris Rainey’s text message to a former girlfriend after an arrest, according to a Sheriff’s Office report.
