Thursday Thrash Volume V: S&C "In Full Shred"

Thursday Thrash is a weekly segment in which we incorporate some of the greatest songs of all time (mostly metal, but not always) into a topically relevant post revolving around current issues at the University of Georgia. As a note, artistic liberties will be frequently used in this relation. Basically, the only premise/rule is that I can't put on some crappy Shania Twain song or some no-talent lightning catcher with autotune (see KESHA). 

If you weren't aware, the UGA staff has recently gained some assistants to Joe T in the strength and conditioning arena, if you will (and I will). A few former Dawgs you'll recognize have been announced as new assistants. Thomas Brown was officially announced in January, but the hiring of former LB Tony Gilbert was not officially announced until earlier this week.

It has also been rumored that former safety Kendrell Bell and former FB Verron Haynes might also join the staff in some capacity, though I'm pretty sure that we can't have all of these guys as "coaches" at one time. If I'm not mistaken, Gilbert will be classified as a "student assistant", so I assume Gilbert will be doing some post-grad work.

At the very least, a couple of 20-somethings sure will help to bring down the average age of our S&C staff. At the very best, all of our guys could come out looking like Verron, who has sparked quite a controversy with his twitter icon.

This brings me to the real meat of the article...

Today's THRASH comes from the iconic Swedish-born neo-classical guitar phenomenom, Yngwie Johann Malmsteen - who isn't very far (in terms of musical chops) from another famous Johann you'll know. He's one of the fastest and most talented shredders in the world, which, is hopefully what we also have in terms of S&C coaching talent by now.

I want to see the Dawgs in full shred come September 3rd.

The title of today's song is "Heavy E Phrygian", but it should not, AT ANY TIME, be confused with "Heavy R. Friedgien" who is someone that you might remember once patrolled the sidelines in College Park, Maryland.
