The last GT vs. UGA football game I attended before I moved to Augusta was at Grant Field and Herschel was probably a freshman. I remember thinking: Why is there a guard in formation to receive the kickoff? Herschel was the prototype for what was to become physical specimens who were very strong and very fast football players - even to the extent that serious injuries were inevitable in the game. Needless to say, my Jackets lost.

I do not hold his Bulldog roots against him but I hope we have better candidates. He could win but it would not advance what I believe in. His ties to Trump are not troublesome to me, but he would inherit all the never-Trump and media hatred of President Trump.
