Who's #1?

This post by PWD over at the GA Sports Blog (followed up by the Senator today; read the comments on both. It's an absurd issue.) had me shaking my head like I do at my kids when they go postal on each other over a toy that neither of them had paid any attention to in months, yet wanted it only when the other had it in their grasp.

The issue is over both Branden Smith and Isaiah Crowell both wearing jersey #1 (Smith, unless I'm mistaken, has worn it his entire tenure here and Crowell was promised the jersey number by Richt during his recruitment) and the fact that, according to the rules, they both can't be on the field at the same time.

Look, fellas, I understand that jersey numbers mean a lot to some people, but this is crazy. What's even crazier is that it's an issue at all! One of you jokers need to take the available #3 or #4, wear it with pride, and GATA.

The fact that we're dropping like flies due to an OLiner not being able to hack it under JT2's guidance, people not being able to properly park a damn scooter (see Rev's previous post), people being general numbnuts (this applies to both Ealey & King), and the attrition that will take place during fall practice and/or the season makes this all the more ludicrous.

Coach Richt, I beg of you, inform one of these fashionistas that it doesn't matter what jersey number they wear. Hell, TELL them that one of them is going to have to make a jersey number switch. There's work to be done and I'm going to lose A LOT of respect for you if both of them are wearing #1 by 8:00 on September 3rd.
