The college football playoff rankings just came out earlier this week. The Georgia Bulldogs are number one. They lost Mark Richt, have some other guy and Nick Chubb, and are really good? I don’t know. I don’t watch this stuff. But damn, did I love baggy jersey Georgia football growing up.
They had that quarterback named Something Green, who had the record for most quarterback wins in college football history at the time. The red helmets with the giant ‘G’ are spectacular. That dog is slobbery and cooking during every game. Their helmets had little dog bones on them. I wanted to play football just so I could get little stickers like that. That’s how they get the kids playing, folks. That’s how they get me to vote every year. If it wasn’t for that “I Voted” sticker, I would never make my way to the polls.
Most importantly though, Georgia had David Pollack. He was undersized and ran around the edge on every play. He didn’t tackle quarterbacks. He leaped on their back like a Discovery Channel Savannah slaughter. He never stopped moving. There was that one play where he sacked the quarterback and picked him off in the end zone all the the same time. I remember telling my grandfather I wanted to go to the University of Georgia because of David Pollack. He told me I was dumb as hell, asked me if I had every been to Athens, Georgia—I had not, I was 14 years old—and berated the university by calling it “Crackersville.” I was sad and embarrassed. I soon realized the importance of education when choosing a university. This of course is why I went to school in San Marcos.
Pollack was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the first round of the NFL Draft. He played outside linebacker and was like a 81 overall in Madden his rookie year. His professional playing career never really existed. He broke his neck and eventually was forced to retire. Now he is on the TV and tweets out lame things.
Yes sir!!!!!! Never too early!!!!!! https://t.co/4ckWJUOemg— David Pollack (@davidpollack47) November 1, 2017
