Rip 'em up, Tear 'em up, Give 'em Heck Georgia!

UGA soundly defeats New Mexico State in the 2011 Homecoming game.

I'm sure it comes to no surprise to any of you that Georgia completely dominated New Mexico State for the homecoming game winning 63-16. Georgia did have a few screw ups with an early fumble robbing them of potentially their first touchdown. 

One thing I would like to point out is that Walsh seemed to have been replaced entirely on kick offs by Brandon Bogotay while still retaining his place as the kicker for point after attempts. No field goals were kicked by Georgia, so it's hard to say whether or not their faith in Walsh has been lost this season.

Among the alumni which came back for homecoming was the oldest living (and still participating) UGA male cheerleader, Mr. Curtis Beall, who is 86 years young.

While at the AGHON Induction Breakfast Saturday morning before the game, I met Mr Curtis Beall. He was dressed in his cheerleader sweater and enjoying the tasty breakfast at the AGHON induction ceremony. As a guest of one of the inductees, I was in a room with many state leaders also in attendance honoring the inductees. I could have chosen to speak to Senators, Representatives or even our State Ag Commissioner Black. I choose Mr Beall. I went over to Mr Beall to say that I well remembered seeing him cheering during my days at UGA('74 - '79) at each homecoming game. I remembered his spirit at those past games and how he seemed to love being back at UGA, between the hedges. We spoke. He was a wonderful gentleman to meet in person. I always wondered what made a 60 year old man put on a 40 year old sweater and come out on a hot fall day and cheer year after year at homecoming! Mr Beall said loved Georgia and he said it is important for all UGA graduates to stay involved with UGA for a lifetime. There are thousands of UGA graduates. What would our state be like if each UGA graduates had the same love for UGA like cheerleader Beall does? 86 years young and still attending honor events, homecoming and the game, I want that type of energy when I am 86, how about you?
