|Whatley on top; |
Twelve days prior to facing Alabama in Georgia's season opener 55 years ago in 1960, Wally Butts addressed his coaching staff at 8 p.m. after practice. The Bulldogs' head coach was upset, to say the least, and absolutely went off on his staff (and players).
And, assistant Jim Whatley was there to take down the entire R-rated outburst by Butts.
Butts' tirade posted below was given to me by a friend in West Virginia, of all places, who has never had any association with UGA football. He told me a player under Coach Butts gave it to him, and swears the recorded raving prior to the '60 Alabama game is the absolute truth. Regardless, I thought it was rather humorous and entertaining. It's a little dirty, and I try to keep this blog relatively clean, so I did my darndest to mark up the profanity.
Finally, if anyone can shed any light on the following rant (i.e., Have you seen it before? Is it legitimate?, etc.), please feel free, but only if you can keep your comments PG-rated...
