“Some rich white kid”

Stephen Garcia’s biggest regret about player payments is that nobody offered it to him.

“A logical person would say to hell with all this.”

Will Leitch’s post about Todd Gurley and his future is an eloquent rebuttal to every “it’s not what’s on the back of the jersey that matters, but what’s on the front” argument you’ve ever heard.

It would make me, and everyone in my town, and millions of college football fans, sad if Gurley was finished as a Georgia Bulldog. But with all due respect: Why should anybody care about us? We allow this corrupt system to exist. If we want players to put their bodies on the line every Saturday while we scream off all the bourbon we consumed pregame, we should make it worth their while. If we do not change the system, we cannot complain if someone begs out of it because it is not in their best interests.

You know what would make the NCAA and the schools take a hard look at their amateurism model?  If every star player entering his third year like Gurley announced he was leaving school, hiring an agent and spending the year preparing for the NFL draft instead.

“If the money wasn’t there, would there be litigation? No, of course not. But the money is there.”

While I don’t doubt Vince Dooley’s sincerity in his support for the current NCAA amateurism model – hell, I even give him credit for consistency (“I don’t agree with the fact that you should be selling jerseys with their names on the back of them, the school or NCAA,” he said. “I don’t think that’s right.”) – it’s more than ironic, considering that he was a primary player in the matter that set the wheels in motion for the battle over amateurism.

“What I’ve read is this guy kind of sucked him in to something.”

So there’s this law that gives Georgia a potential claim against the dude who supposedly stirred the Todd Gurley pot.  I tend to agree with MaconDawg that suing Bryan Allen smacks of your classic throwing good money after bad scenario.  On the other hand, I bet this expenditure really chaps Greg McGarity’s tuchis.

Let’s just say I wouldn’t be surprised if the athletic association has a forensic accountant or two going medieval on Allen’s financials right now.

“I live [in] Georgia and would be crucified if my name was released.”

There is something I do blame Todd Gurley for… thinking that a guy this stupid would be discreet.
