Funny to see this article now, since it's been a year and a half since I posted a blogpost on here about Coach Richt banning facial hair in spring 2009.
According to the article, apparently the beard allowance was the same last year (but secretive), because the team had almost the worst turnover ratio in the country, so the men remained boys. Maybe the manliness and strength that only a beard can portray is needed on this team to finish out the season strong.
Oh, and Aaron Murray's quote in the article does sound pretty bad, but you know he was just joking. Tim Tucker could have thrown in "Murray said, smiling" or something like that for the kid, but instead left him to be berated for his understandable desire to receive good gifts from mommy on his birthday.
