Chick-Fil-A Pairings

The Chick-Fil-A folks released the pairings yesterday for their college football coaches charity golf tournament.

Hugh Freeze is paired with Nick Saban. We should get a top 10 list of the tempo offense jokes that will come from that grouping before the tournament, which is April 27-29 outside of Atlanta.

Here are the other coach pairings: Group Two, Paul Johnson (Georgia Tech) and Frank Beamer (Virginia Tech); Group Three, Larry Fedora (North Carolina) and Steve Spurrier (South Carolina); Group Four, Dan Mullen (MSU) and Dave Doeren (N.C. State); Group Five, Gus Malzahn (Auburn) and Dabo Swinney (Clemson); Group Six Tommy Tuberville (Cincinnati).

Each coach also has one golfer with a connection to his school to complete the foursome. For Freeze, that’s former Ole Miss basketball player Sean Tuohy. There’s no mention as to why Tuberville is not paired with another coach.

While the Freeze-Saban pairing is sure to create some interesting discussion, so would a Freeze-Malzahn pairing in light of the news earlier this week that Ole Miss OL Austin Golson is exploring options to transfer closer to his Prattville, Ala., home.

The Chick-Fil-A Bowl Challenge has provided $4.03 million in scholarship and charitable contributions over the last seven years.

    Freeze paired with Saban in golf tournament? Saban is such a control freak, he’ll have Freeze cleaning his balls after each hole.

      Sister thought that was your job, Karl. I told her that you probably don’t play golf. She said she didn’t think you did either and that was the point.

    Passed out, face down in the Grove is no way to go through life, son! Oh, I know. If you’re that drunk, I know some players that will stomp your head in…(that’s purely a rumor, though.)

    • Ilovebulldoglosers

      I sure you would know Karl. Is that why your face looks like that?

  • Nigel Gruff

    Got a noose, got a noose…can you do the fandango? Thunderbolts and lightning…very, very freighting. A noose! Really?

    • Ilovebulldoglosers

      no, a noise I think you said.

  • Nigel Gruff

    Hey, let’s send this guy some money…no! Wait, let’s get his brother to come, then he will feel obligated to come. Ethics? If you ain’t cheatin’…you ain’t trying.

    • Ilovebulldoglosers

      Now that is the kind of talk we expect from you Karl.

  • Nigel Gruff

    Tell y’all a positive…Jake, “Dead-Eye” Gibbs. He was from Grenada. He signed with the Yankees and spent his career with them, retiring in 1971…If I remember correctly. He was a helluva QB and Catcher, for the Rebels. I watched him kick to Billy Cannon…that play will live forever…it wasn’t Dead-Eye’s fault,though. Just a great athlete.

      Bitterness spilling forth. Makes me feel good, like a good Jerry Springer episode. Is your wife dating your brother?
