UGifA: Fat Guy Catch, Todd Gurley Hurdle, and Other Awesome GIFs from UGA’s Ugly Win Over Tennessee
The UGA-Tennessee Rivalry is exactly what it sounds like. Two programs that tend to get the rug pulled out from under them in the most epic ways possible, but will occassionaly get together and whiff on haymakers at each other. Someone usually brings moonshine. I can’t say who brought it though. No one ever remembers who brought the moonshine.
Anways, this rivalry is a clusterf*ck that usually renders the wrong kind of crazy. What I mean by that is something like this: UGA-Auburn is an elegant, classic crazy — with games that go down in the annals of one of the best rivlaries of all-time.
Tennessee and Georgia tend to fall into one another until the other one can’t get back up again.
And also moonshine.
My point here is to say that this rivalry has fallen on tough times, mainly because Tennessee has fallen on super tough times. This makes the rivalry that was once crazy turn to a penciled-in win almost every year.
So what we really need is a renewal of this rivalry. A true renewal, where the two are on equal footing again.
BEST WAY TO RENEW A RIVALRY IS WITH A CLASSY HELLO WAIT SMOKEY WHAT THE F*CK ARE YOU DOING?!!
Ok, Tennessee. Real quick. There are things you mess with and things you don’t.
The giant nut-sack on the stone Uga statue? Totally cool to mess with. Hilarious, even.
You don’t mess with the hedges though. The last team that did that? Georgia Tech. They did that about ten years ago. They have not beaten us since then. Just a thought.
WE SHALL NOW SYSTEMATICALLY DESTROY YOUR QUARTERBACKS, TENNESSEE
And this. [GROSS INJURY VIDEO WARNING]
However, as so often occurs, in the midst of great evil great beauty breaks forth…
…IN THE FORM OF FAT GUY CATCH!!!!!!!!
I don’t know who this offensive lineman is. I don’t need to know. I just applaud his pure optimism to think when the ball fell out of the sky into his hands to try and run for it. I imagine his thoughts went like this, “THIS IS MY TIME. I’M GOING TO CONVERT THIS FIRST DOWN AND MAYBE SCORE AND THEN DO A FAT GUY DANCE AND oh wait I’m on the ground now.”
EVENTUALLY PEOPLE STARTED SCORING TOUCHDOWNS
Nick Chubb did something cool with his legs here.
BUT TENNESSEE SCORED THEM TOO
BUT WE STILL HAVE TODD GURLEY WHO CAN DO GREAT THINGS
Like score Touchdowns!
And make great runs to the outs–AHHH MY GOD WHAT THE HELL DID YOU JUST DO, TODD?!!!
But Tennessee just kept coming back and coming back. So we needed something more than just Todd. Obviously this wasn’t going to come from the secondary, who got just about as badly torched by a Quarterback named Worley as you could possibly get. So it took Tennessee going, well….
TENNESSEE GOES FULL BUTCH ON LEVEL 11
I was in the stadium for this, and I can tell you that it took a good twenty or thirty seconds for anyone to realize we’d scored a touchdown. We were all like…
FUMBLES?! WE. RE-COV-ER!! [Spartan KICK]
It was a beautiful thing. Only thing left to do is to kiss someone close to you. Someone classy. Someone who means more to you than anyone…
OH GOD UGA THAT’S THE WRONG PERSON TO KISS NO NO NO NO NO
That was all nice and good for us in the stadium, but there were still trolls aplenty out on the internet. For instance, this tweet is real.
Yes, the guy who called the winning 4th down conversion looks bad for doing so. Cool. Glad we’ve got all that stuff settled guess we can move on…oh for gods sake…
Jeez, people. You’re ruining it.
I will not let you ruin it. I need positivity and fun things.
I need TODDDDDDDDDDDDD
OMG TODD I LUV U SO MUCH I JUST WANNA NUZZLE YOU SO HARD RIGHT NOW
This is, BY FAR, my favorite image of the season thus far. Hopefully things will get better, but for now I probably have a new/permanent Twitter avi. God bless you Todd Gurley and your burley chest that just invites a face to nuzzle the living sh*t out of it.
You keep doing you.
And the same to all of you readers out there.
