If we were a Republic again, we wouldn't have to deal with that Mitt Romney BS or Federal Taxes or any of that nonsense.
There's a guy around here who has an SUV with a Georgia tag and a Texas "secede" sticker. It's...confusing. I can't figure out if he's a Texan ex-pat or someone who really wants to get rid of y'all.

At the Hawaii game, they were chanting "U-G-A" during the 2nd and 3rd quarters, then when it was an ass-whipping of comical proportions, they did the S-E-C chant to just illustrate the level of cosmic dominance IIRC. I can't remember if we did it during the OK State game in Athens, definitely did during the first Boise State game (in 2005). The Boise State game was hilarious, they were so obviously terrified to be playing in a huge stadium in front of insane fans (and Sanford isn't even all that loud), plus the talent level. A lot of their players said after they beat OU that losing to UGA opened their eyes to what real prime time football was all about.
I was at the OSU game in Athens, but I can't remember what was chanted, either. Poor BSU was just completely outmatched in that game, but I suppose they got their payback.
The article, my favorite part is the title: "Georgia State pounded in opener as growing pains continue" http://blogs.ajc.com/jeff-schultz-blog/2012/08/30/georgia-state-pounded-in-opener-as-growing-pains-continue/

I find the Arkansas cheers hilarious, and the South Carolina call-and-response of "GAME --- COCK" is pretty funny as well. The "Roll Tide" thing is obnoxious but mostly because I remember it from when they kicked our asses when we were #2 in the country
I've never heard anyone complain that our barking is worse than other cheers, but Horns is right about UT. Hearing "Rocky Top" on infinite repeat is awful.

The helmet rule is asinine. During the UF game, a guy lost his helmet right before a timeout, but he still had to miss a play. What's the point of that? The TO is going to have him off the field longer than sitting for a play would have, so what's the benefit of making him do both? It was also an issue during the AU-Clemson game, where Clemson's QB kept having to leave because his helmet came off. The guy's missing critical downs because a defender put him in a headlock and his hat came off. That's just stupid.
