If it truly is the passion of the fans that defines college football then Tyler is college football.
Following Georgia's 38-35 loss to Clemson on Saturday night, a man named Tyler called in to Atlanta’s 92.9 The Game to lament the defeat of his beloved Bulldogs. After telling the hosts how much he loved the team, Tyler said that the school must fire head coach Mark Richt.
"I've got to tell you right now: I love these 'dogs. I just love 'em. My daddy loved them. His daddy loved them. And tonight just tore my heart out," an increasingly distraught Tyler told the hosts. "I don't know how you can take those men in the locker room -- these men who have bled on the field -- and look in their eyes and hearts. Richt just ain't good enough for them. We are never going to take the next step with Richt. We got to get rid of Richt. We got to get rid of him and we got to get rid of him now."
When pressed to suggest a replacement for Richt, Tyler lost it. With an unsteady voice, Tyler admitted he had neither an answer or much hope for the team's upcoming tilt with South Carolina.
