Separated at Birth: The Readers' Choices

The people have spoken. A week ago, this site posted its first "Separated at Birth" list. The emails followed and it quickly became clear that the readers have a sharp eye for this kind of stuff. Without delay, here are the best of their selections:
Actress Helen Hunt and Georgia's Mark Richt....
Actor Beau Bridges and Nebraska's Bill Callahan....
Sloth and Virginia Tech's Frank Beamer....
Actor and comedian Steve Martin and Vanderbilt's Bobby Johnson....
Hull City midfielder Bryan Hughes and Florida's Urban Meyer....
Uncle Fester of the Addams Family and Larry Coker, formerly of Miami....
Producer Joe Simpson and New Mexico State's Hal Mumme....
Mr. Burns of The Simpsons and Paul Finebaum of the Mobile Press-Register....
Actor Tim Blake Nelson and Louisiana State's Bo Pelini....
Jar Jar Binks and South Carolina quarterback Blake Mitchell....
Orange County Choppers Paul Teutul and Fresno State's Pat Hill....
Geico Caveman and Alabama kicker Jamie Christensen...

Thanks to the following: Marty of cfbstats.com; Brian of College Football Resource; the gang at Tiger Droppings; Erratic Magic; Mathew of Football Huddle and their fine list and those who wish to remain anonymous.

This is PRICELESS!! Found you linked from EDSBS. And as a Bama fan, I gotta say I totally agree with the Caveman thing. On target!

It begins and ends with the Helen Hunt/Mark Richt one. That one's gold.

I was already cracking up. Then I got to the last one and lost my s--t. Bravo for making a tired format funny again.

Even as a VT alum and even though it is straight hate, the Beamer one is priceless.

You have to check out Urban Meyer and Bashir Assad. The resemblance is border-line creepy.

Mark Richt looks a lot like Mark Harmon from NCSI.
