PIC: Georgia Bulldogs DC Todd Grantham Gives Choke Sign To Gators Kicker Chas Henry

New, 2 comments

Alligator Army, SB Nation's Florida Gators community, is all a-sputter over Georgia Bulldogs defensive coordinator Todd Grantham's apparent use of a choke signal, directed at Gators kicker Chas Henry. Henry was lining up for the eventual gamewinning field goal at the time. You could say, oh, well, obviously that's just the signal for BLOCK THE KICK, but there aren't many special teams calls that require both a grip of the jugular and a CH on the lips.

Also spotted: Mark Richt plotting his failed kicker-icing and a Georgia assistant thinking Grantham should maybe try yoga or something.

Let's make a deal, Gators: you let convicted triple axe murderer* Chris Rainey score your opening touchdown, and we'll let our defensive coordinator hope your kicker doesn't score points. Because Urban Meyer has never tried to play head games with an opposing kicker and the game on the line.

* Actually, that wasn't Rainey. Jeff Demps dressed up as Rainey for Halloween on that first possession. Big misunderstanding.
