In an unexpected yet typical twist of fate for UGA football, Georgia lost Saturday’s G Day game to the Tennessee Volunteers due to a last second hail mary pass thrown all the way from Tennessee’s own spring game in Knoxville.

What appeared to be a sure win for Georgia ended in a disappointing and sudden upset, an accurate consensus according to the remaining fans in the stands, all fifteen of them.

G Day, Georgia’s annual spring game, typically pits half of the football team against the other half in a red-versus-black showcase, “[But] with this game being a scrimmage anyway, we don’t really enforce any rules, so looks like Tennessee wins fair and square” explained referee Joel Hiccum. “Since the game is broadcasted, I honestly only came here to be on live television. Hi honey!”

Earlier fans in attendance didn’t see this coming, but weren’t surprised either. “I just felt like a Georgia win was, ya know, virtually guaranteed, so that’s the reason why we left at halftime. Totally not cause we’re all fair weather fans,” said junior Tate Largo, fair weather fan.

“Since it’s just a practice game, coach tells us to try new things,” said Tennessee quarterback Quinten Dormandy, “so when I heard UGA’s spring game was happening at the same time, I decided to just go for it, to bridge the 200-mile gap between our schools and just launch that football sky high. My arm’s permanently dislocated now, but it was worth it.”

Georgia’s Red Team led 25-22 when out of nowhere the Tennessee football plummeted out of the sky and into the hands of Tennessee’s tight end Eli Wolfe, who flew into Athens hours earlier in prep of the play. “I’m glad I caught the ball, but I’m just relieved no one noticed me. I’ve been standing here in Sanford in my orange Vols uniform for 11 hours now,” said Wolfe.

Thankfully, no students saw the game, collectively agreeing to tailgate for too long only to just go to Zaxby’s instead.
