    Ohio State has a long history of stupid behavior. Supposedly, back in the early 60’s, a young golfer had an argument with the school about whether he had enough credits to graduate. The school naturally stood firm. Then Jack Nicklaus won 2-3 majors in a short span. Ohio State re-checked its records and found that Jack did in fact earn a degree. I understand (I hope this is true) that Jack told them to piss up a rope.

    Jarvis, while in high school, gets plane tickets from a long time family friend and father figure to fly out to the school he was going to attend. The morons at the NCAA are expecting a high school kid to immediately begin think of possible NCAA infractions before accepting the tickets?

    The ACC and SEC Blog’s first reason for lack of UGA player incidents is way off in my opinion. Richt has always been consistent with punishing players who break the rules. Can someone name an instance when a UGA player got in trouble with the law and was not punished? How many seasons have we started the year with players missing the first one or two games due to suspensions?

    • Go Dawgs!

      Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

    • Also, on their third point… “80% of ACCPD officers are probably UGA fans anyway…”
      I can tell you from personal experience that this is incorrect. Having lived here for 4 years and been a member of a fraternity AND working the door at a bar downtown, I’d say it’s more like 20% of the cops I’ve met have been UGA fans. It’s almost as if the ACCPD outsources their officers strictly to AVOID bias.
      I’ve met Clemson fans, Texas fans, USCe fans, and even Tech fans (oh god) but I’ve only met a couple of UGA fans…
      Believe me when I say that there’s no bias in the PD, unlike at other schools in the EsEESee….

        Yeah, I’d more or less agree with that. If they’re locals, they probably aren’t fond of UGA or it’s football team. It’s surprising the adversarial attitude Athens has with UGA, but, there it is.

        The other mistake the guy makes is presuming that the cozy relationships present in Gainesville, FL and Knoxville, TN are indicative of the relationships in Athens, GA.

        If you can’t emerge from an alley on a scooter without earning a trip to jail in Athens, but you can put a police officer in a coma in Knoxville & face no charges… sorta different environment.

    • To be fair, I don’t think the point is entirely off base. Richt HAS stepped up the discipline to a higher level than it was……..and all but said so himself just 2 nights ago in Atlanta:

      “I’ve probably had a little less patience than I’ve had in the past,” Richt said, drawing applause. “If they’re not going to be a positive force, they need to go.”

      I agree, it’s not like he wasn’t disciplining before, but again, the guy’s point was not that far off of reality…….the leash has no doubt been shortened from where it was a year or two ago.

    The latest conspiracy theory of the ACC and SEC Blog smacks of Nerd mania. If the douche who wrote that isn’t a Techie then he should have been.

    Let me get this straight. The NCAA reworded a rule about shopping a player so it now expressly includes a family member as an “agent” if he shops the player and prohibits such conduct, when the previous rule expressly prohibited a family member from shopping the player around already–and that is supposed to be a change? Morons. Or maybe they just think we are.

    Not on the buffet, but how ’bout Charles Johnson cashing in big time with Carolina. $72 mil contract with a $30 mil signing bonus. Recruiting should be pretty darn easy when you can wave contract numbers our former players have received – Seymour, Stafford, Johnson, Bailey, Ward, etc, etc, etc.
