In one of the biggest games on Saturday’s college football schedule, No. 8 Georgia is hosting No. 13 Alabama “between the hedges.” Among those in attendance is Georgia men’s basketball coach Mark Fox, and it’s safe to say that he arrived at Sanford Stadium dressed for the occasion.
Spiked shoulder pads, body and face paint, and a wig. Well done, Coach Fox.
Whether or not Fox was going to do this was up in the air, as he took to Twitter Friday and noted that the last time he put on body paint he broke out in hives that didn’t go away for a month. Hopefully the paint Fox used today won’t trigger a similar reaction.
Fox last joined the “Spike Crew” at the front of the student section just over two years ago for Georgia’s game against LSU. On that day the Bulldogs held off LSU in a 44-41 thriller, and the hope in Athens that they’ll get a similar result against the Crimson Tide.
