Georgia is now a basketball school
With much respect to Dean Legge on the photo and caption, notice is being served (although not in the context of how he meant it). Notice is served that the University of Georgia is now a basketball school, dwell on that for a little while Richt-o-Philes, and let that fact sink in before you start defending the beloved, $3,000,000 Reverend Richt. The best coach named Mark in Athens, is a Fox. And while you may think all we do around here is bring the pomp and circumstance of a Macho Man Randy Savage, or the bombast and brilliance of the American Dream Dusty Rhodes, every now and again we do a little cold blooded sausage making. So here's some fun with numbers proving why Georgia is now a basketball school, and that transformation will just get deeper after this season and next.
Since DJ Shockley left town, Georgia football has 0 SEC titles. Georgia basketball has at least 1, and the Fox Hounds seem much more likely to add to that total this season or next compared to Richt's runts.
Georgia football is 1-4 against the marquee program in their division, Florida, over the past 5 seasons.
Meanwhile, Georgia basketball has gone 4-6 against Kentucky, the marquee program in their division, over the past 5 seasons.
Against SEC divisional champs the past 5 seasons, Georgia football has gone 0-7, while at least Georgia basketball has 2 victories over teams that either won, or tied for the lead, in the SEC East or West over that same time frame (the majority of the time being led by the worst coach in college basketball).
Over the past 5 seasons, Georgia has a losing record to the Chicken Penii of South Cackalacky (2-3) in football, but not in men's basketball (4-4).
The transformation into a basketball school has begun, and is nearing completion. Notice has been served Greg McGarity, that if you want football to remain the top dog in Athens instead of letting Georgia become a basketball school, it's time for a little cold blooded sausage making.
