Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Mimbs nearly the latest bizarre Bulldog injury

Friday October 19, 2007

In the pantheon of completely left-field Georgia football injuries, Odell Collins pulling his hamstring while doing laundry always ranks near the top of the list.

Last year, placekicker Brandon Coutu missed half of the season when an onside kick experiment during practice went very wrong.

Ching reports today that punter Brian Mimbs somehow escaped becoming the latest Casualty of the Weird:

(Mimbs) confirmed that a couple days before the Tennessee game, he was trying to throw something onto a hill behind his apartment, leaned against his balcony railing and it gave way. He fell off and landed on his back/tailbone. Fell about 10 to 15 feet.

I find that easy to believe since the decks and balconies at most Athens apartments are supported by columns of tin foil. Still, it’s amazing that the guy fell 10-15 feet off a balcony, landed on his tailbone, and has kicked just fine since.
