TRS Look-a-like: Jason Isbell and UGA QB Matthew Stafford

Big SEC football fan here, and though my Kentucky Wildcats aren't your typical powerhouse, we all take comfort in knowing that we would be if we played in like the Big Eleven or the ACC or something.

But seriously, everybody's excited because football training camps are just getting started. Most notably ESPN, who can finally unleash Lee Corso on the general public after 9 months of lockdown in their Bristol Headquarters. Today they were doing a little bit about Georgia being the preseason #1, and it featured a little interview with QB Matthew Stafford. Who looks EXACTLY like Jason Isbell, formerly of the Drive-By Truckers. Because Isbell does not regularly smile or even make eye contact with the camera, it is difficult to compare the pictures. But give it a shot, and if you've got any others, post the links below.

At least Stafford has that going for him. Even though Georgia is ranked number one now, they won't end the season number one. Too tough a schedule.

Agreed. Have to like a team like USC, maybe the Gators -- best player, and in a conference where they could afford a loss somewhere along the way.
