Football 101

Not sure if you are familiar with Football 101, the day long camp for women football fans held in June in Athens with the coaches. If you aren't, it is a day long session to familiarize ladies with the finer points of football. The proceeds are used to build a scholarship fund in the program's name in women's athletics at UGA. The wife participated this year and had a blast.

We just watched the video put together by the fantastic video coordinators in the football program.  There are a couple of thoughts that come to mind:

  • Women are inherently better defensive players than offensive players. There were a couple of picks, including a terrific read of a short pass that a linebacker read the play and jumped the route. She picked off the pass, then out ran Garner to the end zone, complete with a high step and end zone dance that I'm pretty sure Penn Wagers instinctively threw a flag on during his shift at Rogers Redding's Radio Shack.
  • I wish Mike Bobo would be as invested in getting an advantage in games as he is in doing so at Football 101. If he were, we'd make Mike Leach embarrassed with all the scoring.  
  • Joe Terrishinski is much more cuddly on Betamax DVD than he seems in person.
  • The Beat Tech pump up video should never be anything but quotes from Sting Talk, pictures of Ben Jones with turf in his mouth, and female Georgia fans.

I don't. We bought a copy. I keep thinking might post some highlights, but haven't seen them yet.

My wife has been at all of these and loves it. My daughter and 2 daughter's-in-law made it a family female outing this year. My wife as Nose Guard got in a wrestling match with an OG and Center that resulted in bra straps being gripped and intense words and shoving and tackling involved...........You think these ladies aren't serious about football! I haven't seen an order come thru for the video though. Did your wife pre-order it?

At the Camp. I think the shoving and tackling, including a comment from your wife, made the video.
