GAME DAY, Auburn at Georgia
We're live from Sanford Stadium, located in the rolling hills of eastern Georgia. This is a nice place. I can gaze to the west and see the Tate Student Center. Those aren't my people, but it makes me feel important nonetheless.
As far as the team goes ... TB Tristan Davis isn't dressed out as predicted by coach Tommy Tuberville. Davis obviously will not play. Georgia was rumored to be breaking out black jerseys for this game. That's a rumor that came true. UGA is wearing black for the first time I can remember. Most fans are wearing black, too, which is pretty cool.
I heard Tuberville on one of these pre-game shows, a Georgia show, and he was asked about the Texas A&M. Tuberville said he "doesn't understand why my name keeps coming up" with these various (possible) job openings. I just have to roll my eyes. Look, I have no problem with using capitalism to your advantage. I do that. I'm just saying ... we all know why Tuberville's name comes up. He likes it that way.
