Yeah, But Were They Man Enough?

According to The Sporting News, Pat Dye has found his pants. “Stylish” pants, in fact. Big blue and green Madras plaid check pants. That he doesn’t remember losing.

Ahhh Pat. Burned in the searing flames of Bulldawg infamy for saying “Georgia’s not man enough to beat Alabama,” the DawgNation is guffawing in glee, not only that you’d actually wear pants whose pattern might provoke a seizure, but that you lost them in a lake. And you don’t remember.

My guess is that since they were found on the shoreline, washed up after 23 years, the only thought that helped them survive all those years underwater was crawling out of that lake and hitching a ride to Athens, as far away from Auburn as possible. Where EVERYBODY’S pants are Man Enough.
