Three items of note posted at the AJ-C:
- Per Sonny Seiler, Uga VII hasn’t been chosen yet. Whoever he may be, he won’t be attending Picture Day this year. Instead, he’ll make his grand entrance at the GSU game.
- Back from vacation, Tony Barnhart talks to the preseason pundits about the Dawgs’ rankings. As expected, the schedule’s the thing. Plus, Steele reveals himself to be very worried about the South Carolina game.
- And a surprisingly fair minded piece shows up about the student-athlete arrests story that’s been the big news this summer. Included is this pearl of wisdom from ACC Police Chief Joseph Lumpkin:
Both Lumpkin and Williamson said they are regularly asked by Richt to speak to the football team. Lumpkin said when he does his message is a simple one.
“I tell them they shouldn’t do anything they wouldn’t want to see written about on the front page of the AJC,” Lumpkin said. “Better yet, if they didn’t want their mama reading about it in the AJC they shouldn’t do it. If you did that you wouldn’t have much to worry about.”
