Football—particularly college football—comes with a metric ton of baggage. What's happening to these poor players' brains? Why aren't they paid? Are their First Amendment rights being violated, to boot? And why the hell are nonconference SEC schedules soinsubstantial?
But. Forget all that negative stuff for three minutes and watch the warm, beautifully shot, faith-in-humanity-restoring, holy-shit-we're-gonna-win-a-championship-aren't-we 2014 Georgia football hype video below.
If you missed Saturday night’s matchup between our Classic City Rollergirls and the visiting Greenville Derby Dames, you’ll have to wait until next year to catch women’s flat track roller derby at the Classic Center. The 2014 season came to an end in front of a nearly sold-out crowd that witnessed some pretty memorable jamming, and an impressive yoga demo at halftime.
The World Cup's over, and the Barves—let's face it—are pretty mediocre. But never fear, sports fans! Football season is right around the corner.
The Bulldogs started fall practice today, but before they did, they opened the Buttsmear doors to the media, even us unsavory alt-weekly types. Here are a few highlights from the press conference.
For months, UGA wide receiver Chris Conley has been working on a Star Wars fan film with a cast and crew of friends and fans. In April, we showed you the trailer for Retribution, and now you can finally see the full results of Conley's hard work.
Below, watch the 26-minute short, which was shot on and around the UGA campus and features cameos from some recognizable local faces. It is ridiculous and nerdy and slick and basically the best thing ever.

Me, Flagpole music editor Gabe Vodicka, beer writer Jacob Yarbrough and film critic Derek Hill, that is. It went about like you'd expect.

In a rare moment of national pride and in celebration of our socialist roots, a mostly bewildered Flagpole staff has decided to live-tweet this game other countries mistakenly call "football."

Last Saturday morning, the Classic City Rollergirls caravanned through the North Georgia hills and Cumberland Plateau, over more than 230 rural highway miles, to face the heavily favored Dixie Derby Girls in Huntsville, AL. CCRG lost by five points in a heartbreaker to Dixie last season in Athens. When the team took the concrete track shortly after 6 p.m. at the National Speleological Society Conference Center, they showed no signs of being road-weary—or the least bit intimidated.
Both squads went scoreless in the evening’s first jam, setting the tone for the entire bout. These were defensive-minded, physical skaters, unafraid to mix it up in the pack. Classic City quickly acclimated themselves to the opposition and track conditions. High Jinxxx scored seven hard-earned points during her second jam, followed by an impressive 14-point scoring effort by pivot Elizabeth Impaler after jammer Louis Strongarm had the presence of mind to pass the scoring star to her teammate.
