Cosmopolitan occasionally publishes a post where someone will message their Tinder matches certain quotes (like Fifty Shades of Gray Lines). I decided to hop on board but with a Georgia Southern twist: I sent people I matched with on Tinder Erk Russell quotes. Honestly, most people ignored me and didn’t message back; I probably had them thinking something along the lines of, “Whew, I dodged a bullet with that one.”
Despite the possible questions and red flags that may have appeared in their head, some guys did respond. Some tried to play along, some had no idea who Erk Russell was and some were just plain confused.
“I wasn’t willing to make another four- or five-year commitment. Did I make the right choice? Absolutely.”
“My first 31 years in this business were like a guy eating at a buffet table. Later, when I came here to Georgia Southern, it was like eating the dessert.”
“Emotionally, our players are just as tough as theirs. It’s more physical than anything. Their players are taller. We’ve both got 260-pound linemen. But the ones at Georgia are 6-5, while the ones at Georgia Southern are 5-10…. We’ve got a bus that, conservatively speaking, has about five million miles on it.” (I cut this quote to just say “Emotionally, our players are just as tough as theirs. It’s more physical than anything.”)
“One more time for the greatest team in America!”
“The best way to win a game is not to lose it.”
Erk Russell’s inspiration is lost on him.
Confidence is key.
The woman is always right.
I mean…you could ask Erk?
I’m not sure if we have the same definition of dessert.
Gotta appreciate a man who understands Erk.
All in all, the quote that got the most responses was “My first 31 years in this business were like a guy eating at a buffet table. Later, when I came here to Georgia Southern, it was like eating the dessert.” However, I would not recommend using Erk Russell quotes as a pick-up line unless you truly want to GATA.
