43 Days: Quintavious "Cootie" Harrow

(Image courtesy of, big surprise,

We're +1 one day on top of six weeks until September 3rd - a day that could live in infamy or... uh... famy? Hmmm, I'm not really sure what the heck the language monkeys were thinking when they came up with "infamy", but it's sure as hell not a good term to illustrate root words in the English language.

Well, whatever, I guess I've got to go hash out some beef I have with Webster, but let's not get bogged down in semantics. After all, this is a countdown post, not some lame English 2 class taught by a guy who looks more like Wilfred Brimley than Wilfred Brimley looks like Wilfred Brimley. 

It's a Cootie-filled day today on the countdown, not because I have them (or had them) at some point in my elementary school life, but because Quintavious Harrow is GOIN HAM UP IN THIS MUTHA today. 

Why is Cootie going ham today? Because it's his favorite musician's birthday today and he's putting the FUNK train full steam ahead in Athens, just like his idol. Who is this mystery man, you ask? It's time for a few clues.
  • Born in Kannapolis, North Carolina on this day in 1941
  • In his teen years formed a doo wop group called The Parliaments
  • Had over 40 R & B hits, including three #1's
  • Has produced albums for famed artists, Bootsy Collins and the Red Hot Chili Peppers
  • Top hit was "Atomic D(awg)" which is Cootie's favorite song ever
If you haven't guessed it by now, you never will. Cootie's favorite artist is none other than the original FUNKmaster, George Clinton. I know you probably wouldn't expect it, but Quin loves him some funkin FUNK mother funker.

In fact, he loved it so much that he saw the video below and tried to actually track it down - cause didn't you know that it's a living and breathing thing?

Well, he found it and all those funky mole-covered tetes didn't make him lose his mind, in fact they just made him some kind of delirious roaming FUNKY RPG on the football field. Yeah, and he can see round corners too.

Cootie was recruited at safety out of high school at almost 6'2 and 190 pounds. He's now listed on Georgia's roster as a 6'1, 185 pound corner. This is interesting for a few reasons.

It was originally thought that Cootie might be very close on the qualifying ledge. After the initial talk was over, he ended up making it in with the rest of his class. The funny thing is, Devin Bowman, another DB who was also part of last year's class, is still waiting on his test score.

Considering this circumstance, Sanders Commings being viewed as "a safety who can play corner" by Grantham, and our general lack of depth at the position, if Bowman doesn't end up making it in, Cootie MAY get a few snaps or some special teams work. Of course, this all hinges on a lot of "ifs", but it's certainly possible he'll see the field in running situations, as he's very tough in run support or on kick off/punt team.

This coming 2011 season will see us lead the nation in putting the ball on the carpet up for grabs, and we have not done well on jumping on those loose fumbles, as our coaching staff neither teaches them how to hold the football nor coaches the kids how to recover their fumbles offensively either.
