Talking Points for Tuesday, October 13, 2009
- A little extended schadenfreude. I know we had not one but two FanPosts on this yesterday, but GVX's Vol Historian also got riled by our friend Kyle at Dawg Sports for his inartfully-phrased comparison of our two teams in the wake of Saturday's stomping of the Bulldogs. The biggest insult is that he called our precious blog platform a "chatboard," but he also mentioned that Kyle sounded like he was on the verge of throwing himself out a third-story window. Those in the blogosphere know full well that Georgia fans don't throw themselves out of windows, they throw toasters out of windows and win awards for doing so. Anyway, Brian Cook at Sporting News also leads with Georgia fans' misery in his This Week in Schadenfreude. To Kyle's credit, though, he's taken the post-game stuff in stride and required himself to attend sensitivity training, the effects of which can be found here. Props to Kyle for the humorous response.
- The Chimera is also trying to get some extra mileage out of Saturday's big win, scouring the Peach State this week for recruits. Lance Thompson and Ed Orgeron are targeting numerous top prospects in Georgia, the majority of which are already committed elsewhere.
