And people don’t believe me when I tell them about UGA, and think I’m just playing up the UGA/GT rivalry. Yeah, 20 percent of Vince Dooley’s kids made straight “A’s”, but damned if they could make round “O’s”.

The coach who compiled the test is not too bright either.

3) In what league do the Georgia Bulldogs compete?

Colleges don't play in leagues. The play in conferences.

19) If you go on to become a huge coaching success, to whom will you tribute the credit?

Should be "attribute" the credit.
