    Thanks for sharing that.

    Erk continues to cast a long shadow in the 'boro.

    If we're on the topic of Erkisms, what does FIDO stand for?

    One other Erkism from the 85 and 86 teams: Our offensive line was called the Georgia Power Company because they delivered the electricity for our offense, and our snap count was called "Rate Hike!"

    Has the recent teams worn the GATA or TEAM me shirts anymore? I was in school during Stowers era which obviously was right after Erk, and players still wore those shirts. I wonder if that tradition is still around.
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    I was watching a sportsouth documentary on the team getting ready to play UGA in 2008, and many of the players were wearing TEAM me and GATA shirts during their interviews
