CONS –
N/A

 

 

QUOTE –
Hoke: Did I ever tell you about the first time I ever been outside the state of Georgia?

Ray: Personally, I liked the university. They gave us money and facilities, we didn’t have to produce anything! You’ve never been out of college! You don’t know what it’s like out there! I’ve WORKED in the private sector. They expect *results*.
