What is in a Name

It was only a matter of time before someone posted it up: where Georgia (the state) and Georgia (the nation) get their names. I'm sure this helps clear up a lot of questions, and reassures many residents of the South that they are not, in fact, living their own personal Red Dawn moment.

This is not to be confused with the fact that Georgia (the state's university's football team) ends up being in all the sports news while Georgia (the nation) ends up in all the international news.

It didn't take long for the college football writers to add their personal brand of humor to the situation, and combine the headlines. Check EDSBS and Hey, Jenny Slater! for exhibits A & B.

Prepare to hear metaphors and analogies to the world event all year as the college football season moves along.
