Dawgs: No Gators allowed in House



This week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution "commending the University of Florida Gators for their victory in the 2006 Bowl Championship Series (BCS) and for winning the national college football championship." The vote was 414-1.

The dissent? Georgia First District Rep. Jack Kingston.

On the blog on Kingston's Web site, his legislative staff wrote, "Although we do feel that the Florida Gators did a great service by proving once again that the SEC is THE elite conference in college football, we could support no such resolution. We encouraged Jack to vote against this resolution as we felt the constituents of the First District would want him to do so."
