Consider the college football hype video.
Designed to get crowds pumped up for a big home game, and released weeks in advance of said game in order to maximize the potential for Internet virality, it is often short, crisply shot, with a soul-stirring soundtrack.
Nearly three weeks after Georgia's Todd Gurley was suspended by the university while it investigated whether the star running back received cash for autographs, and one week afterthe school submitted its findings to the NCAA, that governing body has ruled that Gurley must sit a total of four games.
The University of Georgia released a statement this morning announcing that it will file paperwork Wednesday with the NCAA to request reinstatement for suspended running back Todd Gurley, who has missed two games due to a school investigation into whether the star running back received improper benefits.
It's not known how quickly the NCAA will respond to UGA's request for reinstatement, though the Macon Telegraph's Seth Emerson notes that since the "NCAA and UGA have been working together on Gurley's situation… UGA's request seems almost assured of being approved."
Signs point to Gurley being available for Georgia's next game, the annual clash with the Florida Gators in Jacksonville, on Nov. 1.
Meanwhile, Gurley was recently spotted in Athens wearing—what else?—a "Free Gurley" T-shirt. Let's hope he paid for it.
Georgia running back/one-time Heisman hopeful/possible demigod Todd Gurley won't be on the field against Arkansas tomorrow, but Gov. Nathan Deal and Democratic challenger Jason Carter are counting on him to help run up the score Nov. 4.
Game over: Jason Carter has won the coveted Patterson Hood endorsement.
Just kidding—nobody's sealed the deal yet. But introducing the Drive-By Truckers—whom Carter befriended while attending UGA law school—at a sold-out Tabernacle show certainly doesn't hurt the Democratic gubernatorial nominee's chances. This is just a guess, but I doubt Gov. Nathan Deal has Southern Rock Opera on his iPod.
We're almost a month and a half into the Georgia football season, and for fans, there's plenty of reason to be optimistic. Despite a crushing week-two loss to South Carolina, the Dawgs are in the driver's seat in the SEC East; CMR and company might very well find themselves back in the Georgia Dome come December.
There's perhaps no UGA football tradition more indelible than the ill-considered and/or blatantly cash-grabby fan-made fight song, and so, nearing the season's midpoint, we thought it would be a good time to round up the best and worst—and bworst—tribute jams of the year so far.
