Those of you who are pessimistic enough about the state of the program that it feels good to spread a negative rumor – okay, a rumor with a question mark, as if that makes it more credible – about a Georgia player shouldn’t be surprised if I’m occasionally in the mood to call you out. So take it away, Woodrow Clemons.
Harvey-Clemons is having to miss the Gator Bowl due to “a violation of team regulations,” according to UGA. It’s the second suspension for the 6-foot-5, 215-pound sophomore from Valdosta. He also had to sit out Georgia’s season-opening game against Clemson after violating the athletic program’s marijuana-use policy.
According to Woodrow Clemons, this time an academic issue has sidelined his grandson. Harvey-Clemons is not expected to miss any other games after this season, he said.
“Yes, but I really don’t want to say anything else about it,” said Mr. Clemons, who is the legal guardian of Harvey-Clemons and his siblings. “I’d rather you get that from Coach Richt. But he’ll be all right after this game.”
I’m not defending JH-C here. But there’s no reason to make things look worse than they already are, either. So don’t, unless you’ve got real evidence.
