The best things in life are Free Gurley, but you can keep ’em for the birds and bees.

Here’s something else about which Mark Emmert would like to remain totally clueless.

Calling this stuff farcical would be an insult to farces everywhere.

  1. I honestly believe the NCAA at this point wants none of this crap to come out. Keep it buried and move on.

    Love it!

    Of course he’s doing to point out the irony of it. He doesn’t hurt that he’s also made some quick cash on a cheap design and a three-color tee.

      He didn’t make the rules that lead to this and it’s not like he’s stealing from Gurley. I have no problem with it. And if it sheds some light on the irony of the situation, then all the better.

    The Ivy in Buckhead (Atl) sold the ones that Gurley is wearing in that picture. One of the owners of that bar is a long time college friend and he estimates they made a few thousand off of the shirts alone not to mention the windfall they had on the “Free Gurley/UGA Game viewing parties”. All of which he (Gurley) didn’t nor will see a dime of that money. That’s absurd, but we already knew that.

    If I’m McGarity et al, I keep mum on the Gurley thing, even if he is cleared for Florida. Not have him travel with the team, nor warm up within view. Then, when they come out of the locker room for the start of the game, No 3 runs out there carrying the power G flag and the stadium becomes worse than bonkers. Meanwhile, Boom submits his resignation on the spot. A win-win if you will.

      This part literally made me LOL

      I think it would be only gentlemanly to send him a wire, at least, suggesting that he don his brown trousers for that particular possibility. After all, he has performed so very admirably.

      Seems like Gurley could sue all these guys and take their profits, since they are profiting off of his likeness illegally.

      I wonder if the NCAA would suspend him for that money? Or have we found the loophole?

    Serious question: what would happen if Todd Gurley made and sold a bunch of Nick Chubb shirts, and Chubb did the same for Gurley? Can the NCAA stop a student athlete from profiting off another student athlete?

    I’m sure McGarity will arrange to have something similar available at the bookstore and online by the end of the week. Why should some random guy be the only one profiting off Gurley’s UGA-administered suspension?


  7. Every couple days, when I think I’ve moved on, you go and stir the pot. Lol

    Emmert has been grossly inept and over matched from the very beginning. For those who admire consistency, he is still your guy though.


  9. This post is an example of why GTP is the blog I visit more regularly than any other on any topic.

    Thanks Senator.

    My favorite scenario..UGA with Gurley, meets FSU in the NC game. Gurley cleared to play because he already suffered his suspension and Winston sitting out the game and the first six from next year because FSU covered it up.
    Where are those Kharmic Bitches???They owe us this.

    Someone needs to give the Senator credit for the creative headline. That’s what I want…

    Hopefully, whoever made the “Free Gurley” t-shirt Todd was pictured wearing didn’t make Todd pay for it…
