    Is having a big playoff game against New England. Anybody watching notice his pig tail. Man, that is a real hunk of hair.

    I like Henry as a RB a lot better. But Ingram’s team is probably better.

    Do you think that they would call it a horse collar tackle.

    Not 100% sure, but I think the hair is fair play.

    It is. Many a player has had a dread pulled out.

    Never seen it called... I know Saban said to Richardson one time that if it happened and he was caught them that he would cut them for him.

    It's not going to be called. It's perfectly legal. It's not part of the standard equipment worn.

    It is and should be legal, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they changed that with all the other rules currently pussifying the game. You could make argument that pulling a ball carrier down by hair puts them at similar risk of injury as horse collar tackle does, but shoulder pads are required where dread locks are not.

    I think they'd implement a "hair length policy" before they'd do that.

    That would almost certainly lead to a discrimination lawsuit as big of snowflakes as we have today in society... my high school baseball coach required us to be clean shaven and hair maintained as well. Kind of amazing to see how some of the highest paid professional athletes in sports present themselves...

    I guess Gator stopped caring again since we didn't get that update.

    Mahomes almost had as many yards rushing today as Henry, and he did it on half the carries

    Slowed down by one of the great Bama LBs... Reggie Ragland and several others were determined not to give him the Eddie. Still one I’ve the NFL GOATs. How did the UGA RBs and other players do today?

    Well, Todd Gurley actually made it to the game. And this year you can watch Mecole Hardman at WR and PR. For the 49ers, Georgia Southern's Matt Breida will be toting the rock.

    One thing is pretty clear, Henry is one of the best in the league. Despite that fact, I still don't care about the NFL. I want all SEC players (provided they aren't shitheads like a certain ass slapping receiver) to do well in the league but I don't care enough to watch.

    I don’t really care too much what anyone does if they don’t play for Atlanta. I certain,y won’t adopt a team just because they draft a Georgia player. I’m glad Hardman made the SB as a rookie, but I think he’s gonna get beat by the Niners.

    I used to not get too excited about the NFL until I knew I was moving to Charlotte. Now I pull for the Panthers (and the Hornets even though I don't care about the NBA). I want AU guys to do well, but I won't cheer for the team just because an AU guy is on it.

    I agree on not cheering for a team because AU players are on it. As a Falcons fan, I say fvck your Panthers. I care more about my Fantasy team winning than I do the Falcons though, as there’s some money to be made by winning...

    I now live in Naperville, IL. But I will never pull for anyone except Atlanta teams. Damn sure wasn’t gonna pull fir the Bucs when I was in Tampa.

    Wait, wtf??? You already left the Tampa/Lutz area?

    Buddy of mine lived in Naperville for several years. He worked for a company that sold boiler and cooling tower maintenance services/supplies. NALCO iirc.

    There’s parts of Atlanta that aren’t bad. There are other parts where I share your sentiment, but suggest you wear a rubber. Maybe two.

    Yeah, stayed about 3 years. I regret leaving though. Took a job offer that I thought I wanted. Turns out I would have been just fine sticking in FL. Did well on the house though.

    Tamer. Claremont lounge is a good way to catch a disease by purely casual contact. I had an urge to bathe in hot alcohol after going there.

    I personally avoid strip joints where there are motorcycles outside. Those chicks are scooter trash and sex slaves. All the $$ goes to to the driver.
