Despite living in Rome, Georgia, Dean Ratledge has been a longtime Tennessee fan. That is, until his son committed to Georgia.
On Monday, 4-star OL Tate Ratledge committed to the Bulldogs over the Volunteers, and now his father’s allegiances have changed.
As you can see below, Dean Ratledge has already taken down the Tennessee decal in the back window of his truck:

He also replaced his front license plate with a Georgia “G” logo:

After rooting for the Vols for so long, a switch to rooting for the Dawgs will be tough for Ratledge. But, since his son is heading to Athens, it’s safe to say he’ll make the transition just fine.
