Ladies and Gentlemen –

I have a surprise for you this week…..

Along with your always entertaining South Georgia Football News

And amazingly accurate and entertaining Weekly Picks….

We will have the University of Tennessee “rebuttal” on Butt Chugging

From none other than the Number One Volunteer Fan, Hootie Snitch

It should be astounding…(No Pun intended)

Enjoy your picks…..

POST GAME NOTES

The College Football Week that was Week 5; Your Favorite College Football Prognosticator was a rather astonishing 48 and 14 or 77%. Certainly it could have been “better”, and with that in mind I would like to take this opportunity to “thank” the West Point Black Knights of the Hudson, the Virginia Tech “Turkeys” and the Georgia Tech Wreck for disappointing not only their fans and alumni but also for sending my weekly average into the basement.

That aside, after 5 Weeks of College Football “The CFB Wizard” is 314 and 62 or holding steady at 84%.

Not too bad considering, if I say so myself…

TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS COMMENTARY by “HOOTIE SNITCH”

This is the Number Damn One Tennessee Volunteer Fan on the Planet Hootie Snitch, coming at you from the Heart and Soul of Big Orange Country right here in Baneberry Tennessee!

I got me something to say about something that happened last week and you need to listen too!

Now there has been a lot of talk this past week about some of them fraternity boys at Tennessee..

I am here to tell you I damn sick of hearing it!

If you ain’t never done no “Butt Chugging” then you need to shut your mouth!

That’s right I said it!

But there is something that some of you damn people hadn’t even thought of!

Theres some advantages to “Butt Chugging” that you don’t get from regular drinking.

1. You can smoke a Marlboro while you are “Butt Chugging” (Try that while you are a regular drinking sometime; cause unless you are one of them ventriloquist in Las Vegas or Dollywood, it ain’t a going to work for you)

2. When you “Butt Chug” you don’t have no alcohol breath. Now that don’t mean that your farts won’t smell like Budweiser (Because they do), but it does mean that if the Police stops you on the way home from the party and he asks you “Have you been drinking?” You can honestly tell the man “No officer I haven’t had a drink all night”

3. If you tell your friends about the party they missed and you tell them “We all got drunk off our ass”, you is flat telling them the truth!

4. Women love to “Butt Chug” cause it don’t mess up their lipstick!

5. Admit it, Butt Chugging just sounds damn sexy, don’t it?

So for all you folks out there that have been a hating on Tennessee Volunteers for “Butt Chugging”

Have I got a deal for you!

Why don’t you come by my Bar and Grill “Scooters” this Saturday in Baneberry Tennessee!

We is going to have a Cornhole Tournament and some Butt Chugging!

I will even give you a free bumper sticker for coming by….

It says “I got Butt Chugged at Scooters”

I might even show some you lovely ladies how to “Turtle Peel” too if you’re lucky!

Hell Yeah!

See you there!

Hootie – Out!

EDITORS NOTES: Well…..

That was interesting…

But I think it’s illegal to mention “Butt Chugging” and “Cornhole” in the same story….

Unless you live in California

Just saying…

SOUTH GEORGIA FOOTBALL NEWS and VIEWS

Greetings from the Heart of SEC Country!!!

The Panthers of Clinch County snuck into McRae on Friday and squeaked out a 17-9 win over our homestanding Trojans. It was a nip and tuck battle to the very end but the Boys in Blue came up short in a hard fought opening to the Region 2-A schedule. The visiting Cats clawed out a 10-9 lead going into the 4th quarter and finally put the Trojans away with a late TD. Rashawn Mackey once again carried the load for the Trojans with 121 hard earned yards, including a big 50 yard TD dash to give Telfair an early lead. Next up for the boys is a road trip to a tough tribe of Indians from Ocilla as they tangle with Irwin County. Coach Burleson was upbeat about the effort our boys gave. “We’ve got to learn to hunker down and play a little tougher. These kids haven’t won around here lately, but they’re seeing what it takes to get the job done. We’re not out of anything yet. It’s early, and they’ll bounce back.”

A shootout broke out this weekend between the hedges of Sanford Stadium. The Coonskinners from Knoxville wandered into town looking to try to put a leash on a highly touted Georgia team. The end result was close to 1000 yard of total offense as the feisty hounds overcame a pesky Volunteer team by a score of 51 to 44. The scorekeeper was plenty busy tallying up yards and points in this matchup as neither team decided to feature much defense in this thriller. Next up for the Cow College is a trip to Chickentown to see if the can’t pluck the feathers out of Steve Spurrier’s homestanding Bantams. This is THE game everyone in the states of Georgia and South Click have been waiting for. It’s a winner take all death match to determine SEC East supremacy. If you can’t get excited about this one, well, you need to be a Big East fan. Meanwhile, up in Hot’lanta the Rambling Wreck….. Well, I’m sure your mamas taught you the same thing mine did. If you don’t have anything good to so about somebody, don’t say anything. I think that applies in this situation after Tech was embarrassed 49-28 Saturday by Middle Tennessee State. I’m not one to call for jobs, but something bad is wrong on North Avenue. And before my Tech brethren start talking about admission and academic standards, remember this. Bobby Ross and George O’Leary won at Tech as recently as the nineties. That reasoning don’t wash anymore. Let’s hope the Engineers draw up something good for a big game against Clemson next week. Playing within the confines of the Prettiest Little Stadium in America seems to suit the Eagles of Georgia Southern. In a big SoCon matchup this weekend the Blue Birds of Prey notched another win on their beaks as they gave the visiting Dogs of Samford a rude welcome with a 35-16 victory. The defense really ruffled their feathers at the expense of the scrappy canines as they allowed only 16 rushing yards in the second half to go along with 4 sacks and 7 tackles for loss. Jerrick McKinnon had over 160 yards and two TD’s on the day and Dominique Swopes added 134 yards and a couple of scores of his own. Next up for the Statesboro Blue Birds is a trip to North Carolina to take on the struggling Western Carolina Catamounts.

People are really starting to wonder what’s going on out in the Swamps of Louisiana these days as the Bayou Bengals of LSU struggled early against a nasty bunch of Cats from Towson before coming away with a 38-22 victory. Struggling with the War Eagles is one thing. Struggling against Towson does nothing to convince those pollsters, who rewarded the Tigers by dropping them to 4th. And then there was that little game in Morgantown with Baylor. Over 1500 yds of Offense, 67 first downs, and more receivers with 100 yard days than there were cheerleaders on the sidelines. Up in Ann Arbor, the Nuts of Columbus, Ohio managed to eeke out a win against the Gladiators of Michigan State. Looks like Urban still hasn’t found his next Tebow. Finally, over in the original Columbia of the SEC, the Head Ball Coach’s roosters started sluggishly in the first half against a scrappy bunch of kitties from Lexington. Trailing 17-7 at the half, Spurrier lit a fire under his lethargic charges as the Chickens stormed out of the coop after the half to score 31 unanswered points and take a 38-17 win. This victory pretty much sealed the deal for an undefeated, number 5 ranked Athens crew to travel to Chickentown to take on an undefeated, number 5 ranked Gamecocks team for a Nationally Televised affair this coming Saturday, complete with drumsticks, doggie treats, and ESPN’s Gameday. It don’t get no better than this, folks.

What I like:

Big Games in the SEC – Yessiree Bobtail, if you’re an SEC fan this weekend you’ll be glued to the set at 7 o’clock, watching Georgia – South Carolina. Spurrier vs Richt. Dawgs vs Cocks. Mano a Mano. (My Espaniola isn’t that good). This is what being a part of the best conference in the country is all about . Then there’s Alabama – LSU, Auburn – Alabama, Mississippi – Mississippi State, and many more.

What I don’t like:

Pinball games – Exhibit A: West Virginia Baylor. All those balls flying through the air look real pretty. Kind of like a video game. But, here’s a note to all those pollsters and fans who are so enamored with this foolishness. Every SEC team that won a National Title had a solid offense but a better defense.

Syndicated 12:30 ACC games on CBS affiliates – How many of you had to endure the pain of watching the juggernauts of North Carolina, Duke and Wake Forest, finish up last week before switching to the 3:30 Georgia – Tennessee game? How about the week before when we had to wait for the South Carolina – Missouri matchup? This is a regular occurance and it needs to stop before some well meaning fans up and sabotage a TV station, knock a broadcast tower down or assault some of the guilty station personnel.
This could get ugly.

That’s it for now. Hope everyone’s team wins and you have a great week.
And remember; make sure you support your local High School Athletics.
These are your future collegians of tomorrow.

Until next time,

I’m Harley Hanesworth
