UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA

In the words of the late, great Paul Harvey — ask your parents, kids — “Now, for the rest of the story.” I was in Columbus on Monday for UGA’s Coaches Caravan stop there. On Tuesday, it’s Savannah for Stop 2 on this coach-speaking mini-tour featuring Georgia football coach Kirby Smart and basketball coach Tom Crean. So I drove from Columbus to Savannah Monday night. If you haven’t looked at a map, I’ll just tell you that’s a long way — 4-plus hours by car, which is how I traveled. Fortunately for Smart and Crean, they didn’t come here the same way. They flew back to Athens last night via UGA’s plane, kissed their loved ones goodnight, slept in their own beds, then flew down here to the “Hostess City of the South.” Tuesday night, Georgia’s coaches flew back home to Athens. I asked Smart for a ride after I walked out to my garage Monday and found my car’s left front tire flat, but he insisted all the seats were occupied. So I rented. – Chip Towers, dawgnation – Read More
