John Jenkins vs. John Jenkins

John Jenkins, one of Georgia's top football recruits, doesn't arrive on campus until May. But Bulldog fans who really want to see a John Jenkins don't have to wait: Vanderbilt's basketball team visits tomorrow, and its John Jenkins happens to be leading the SEC in scoring.

The football-playing Jenkins was aware of his basketball namesake. ("I see his name on Google and") They've never met, but here’s how the two stack up:

Full name
Jenkins, Georgia …. Jonathan Jermaine Jenkins
Jenkins, Vandy …… John Logan Jenkins III

Jenkins, Georgia …. Big John, T.J. (father’s name is Tom)
Jenkins, Vandy …… Johnny J

Jenkins, Georgia … 6-4
Jenkins, Vandy ….. 6-4

Jenkins, Georgia … 340
Jenkins, Vandy ….. 220

Academic year
Jenkins, Georgia … Sophomore
Jenkins, Vandy ….. Sophomore

Jenkins, Georgia …. July 11, 1989
Jenkins, Vandy …… March 6, 1991

Jenkins, Georgia ….. Stamford, Conn.
Jenkins, Vandy …….Nashville, Tenn.

Favorite color
Jenkins, Georgia ….. None (“I just don’t have one”)
Jenkins, Vandy …….Blue

Favorite TV show
Jenkins, Georgia …. Tie between “Martin” and “Fresh Prince of Bel Air”
Jenkins, Vandy …… “Fresh Prince of Bel Air”

Favorite movie

Jenkins, Georgia ….. “The Expendables”
Jenkins, Vandy …… “Friday”

Inspiration pregame music
Jenkins, Georgia ….. DMX, Waka Flocka Flame, Gucci Mane, Notorious BIG, Jay-Z
Jenkins, Vandy …… Any rap music

Did you ever play the other sport?
Jenkins, Georgia: ”Basketball was my first sport actually. I felt like I had a better future in football.”
Jenkins, Vandy: “Yes, in the 5th grade, I was a linebacker.”

What would he say if he ever met the other John Jenkins?
Jenkins, Georgia: “What’s up, I guess?”
Jenkins, Vandy: “You’ve got a cool name.”

(My thanks to Vanderbilt sports information office for speaking to its Jenkins, and to Georgia's Jenkins for answering his phone and humoring me).

Silly post Seth.

You mean to tell me there was nothing UGA sports related to report on? Nothing?

Instead you give us something that has absolutely no relevance to anything. Just plain silly.
