Any port in a storm

Honestly, anyone with half a brain could see this one coming.

Georgia coach Mark Richt granted ex-UGA LB recruit Dexter Moody an “unconditional” release, meaning he could play for any school. Moody told the AJC he could end up playing for Lane Kiffin at Tennessee.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Moody said he was invited to Tennessee’s Orange and White game on Saturday by the Volunteers. ”Me and my dad are planning on going up there,” Moody said. “They talked liked they were going to offer me a scholarship. I don’t know. I guess we’ll see. They just want to meet me in person and everything.”

Of course, who knew that after losing his Georgia scholarship due to some questionable… uh… life choices on his part, Moody would develop a grudge?

“Coach Thompson said they need some linebackers really bad,” Moody said. “I’m definitely very interested in Tennessee. It wouldn’t be bad to go there and be able to play against Georgia every year. That would be something, taking out some of my feelings against the team that released me. I think it would be fun.”

No argument there.  Go for it, Dexter.  You and Tennessee are made for each other.

    Kiffin considers Tennessee to be an NFL minor league farm team anyway. Soon the Viles will be dominating the “Fulmer Cup” again. I say let him go and lets see what your made of.

  2. How in the world has Tennessee not developed a Miami-like stigma for straight-up thuggery and a complete lack of ethics?

    Wait a minute!!! Didn’t Dexter say he never really wanted to go to UGA, that he was just following his teammate? Why all this pent up frustration now?

      Plus it’s not like Richt pulled a Spurrier on him and just yanked his scholarship for no reason. I don’t think he understands he screwed up the situation with UGA.

        As a high school teacher, I can assure you that that lack of understanding is not an uncommon thing.

        Wasn’t that the university’s fault? Saying they had X amount of scholarships when they didn’t, or something to do with the test score standards changing and they told Spurrier he couldn’t bring these kids in after he promised them scholarships….

        or am i way off base?

      Well, he is being coached by Kiffin now..

  4. I really, really want to give the kid the benefit of the doubt. He makes it so difficult with this incessant “it wasn’t me” attitude. He’ll fit in just fine with Kiffykins. If he’s excited because he gets to play Georgia every year, I got two words for ya: “Bring It!”

    Wow, between this guy and Bryce Brown, Kiffykins is really assembling an All-Punk team up there in Knoxville. Can’t wait for that game…

    Dear Eric Berry, if you are interested in playing for a team with class, I think we’ll have a spot for a DB year after next.

      I would love to have Berry, but methinks he will be playing in the NFL in 2010 (and Kiffykins will have had nothing to do with it).

    What a joke. Moody will fit in perfectly at UT. Whether it is fighting teachers, missing meetings, and banging coaches wives…..UT has it all for him

    Got to the Knox County Jail and do not pass go.

    A match made in, well a perfect match for this young thug. Look out professors.
