Mark is back with episode 087 of the 10 Min. Tailgate Tour. This week we kick things off talking about The Bulldogs win over AP and why you should have NO sympathy for the cupcake schools. Plus, an old article has popped up about the success of Athens as a College Town. This leads to the SEC success rate over the weekend and how UT fans are just so salty. 

From there we discuss Nike's decision to add Colin Kaepernick as the face of the Just Do It campaign. Some love it, some hate it, but to Mark, this is brilliant marketing. Nike has billions and will spend the money to make sure losing a few shoe sales over this campaign won't affect the bottom line. Regardless of how you feel about Anthem protests, this is a calculated business move. 

Finally, we have a quick preview of the Dawgs trip to S. Carolina and what Kirby said about the QB situation.
