"URBAN LOOKS FOR PAYBACK AGAINST UGA" (THREE MONTHS FROM NOW, BUT WE'RE ALL DEMONSTRABLY RUNNING OUT OF MATERIAL)

New, 55 comments

Dear readers, imagine the carnage in a world where the gentlemen of Fire Joe Morgan had a subscription to the AJC. Georgia's See & Say of journalism helpfully provides a sidebar blurb reading, "What's on this page ? The entry titled "Urban looks for payback against UGA," and any of the comments about it".

Furman Bisher says, "Baaa."

Hand-holding for the columnist or the readership? Decide for yourselves. Today, Mark Bradley, paid sports journalist, in the space of about 200 words, resorts to the following:


1. "Crocodile tears from a Gator." OMG URBAN MEYER HAS A POINTY SNOUT NOT A ROUNDED ONE THAT'S HOW WE KNOW HE'S NOT A CROCODILE!!!1

2. Making the "Urban Crier" joke, acknowledged in the SAME SENTENCE to have originated in 2005.

3. Pointing out that Urban Meyer was named for a pope. In case you haven't heard. Once or twice. A year. For as long as he's been coaching. Bradley's thoughts on the Council of Piacenza were not made available.

It's message-board saber-rattling at its most pedestrian, and its author was paid to act awfully petulant for a presumed fan of the very team that's presumed by many to have the upper hand in the SEC East this fall. Swindle retorts, in verse:

Circuit boards and LEDs,
The innards of a Gobot
Bland quotes and zero aim to please,
Urban Meyer is a robot.

But scrolling down to the nearly 400 comments below reveals that, loathe it though we may (AND WE DO), the AJC is the paper we deserve:

Mark Richt, on the other hand, is just like Jimmy Swaggart, except he does not have the enjoyment of sex, alchohol, and an actual personality.

They're a broken caps lock key away from Lord of the Flies or FanHouse (hard to say which) in there. UTEP at Buffalo can't get here fast enough.
