Georgia tight end Arthur Lynch and offensive lineman Hunter Long got to see how another SEC power program lives when they spent a few days last week in Baton Rouge, La., visiting former Bulldog quarterback Zach Mettenberger at LSU.
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs so funny to see another big-time program,‚Äù Lynch said. ‚ÄúThere‚Äôs no animosity.‚Äù
Lynch said he swapped stories of the life of a college player with not only Mettenberger, but with Odell Beckham Jr., Jeremy Hill, Connor Neighbors, Jarvis Landry and others.
Lynch got a chance to check out LSU‚Äôs indoor facility. Advantage LSU.
LSU players heard that Georgia players get food catered in by Carrabba‚Äôs. Advantage Georgia.
‚ÄúThey‚Äôll be like `No way. That‚Äôs unbelievable. They just give us like whatever,‚Äô‚Äù Lynch said. “It‚Äôs funny. You think you don‚Äôt have the best, but that was just the coolest thing. You think you don‚Äôt have the best and the same situations but our perspective is almost the same but from just different scenarios.‚Äù
Carrabba‚Äôs must really be creating buzz around the Bulldogs‚Äô program.
Former Georgia quarterback Buck Belue (who was kind enough to drop off some Krispy Kreme donuts to the media room Monday but they were gone by the time I was ready to grab a bite) even tweeted this out:
‚ÄúWhen I left Athens #UGA this afternoon, looked like Carrabba‚Äôs was on site grilling up skewered shrimp & a feast for the ‚ÄòDogs‚Ä¶‚Äù
