“… and the matter will continue to be evaluated.”

I expect we’re about to discover another reason Todd Grantham was happy to leave Georgia for Louisville.

    This comment probably doesn’t belong under this subject, my apologies for that, but there doesn’t seem to be a better place to state this.

    I’d like to say that I admire the Oregon Football Program for doing a very hard thing..suspending and disciplining players right before the biggest game in school history. I suspect a lot of coaches wouldn’t do that.

    Sometimes it seems like there’s no one other than CMR that gives more than lip service to discipline…esp. discipline to key players..but this proves that isn’t the case.

    While I wish it hadn’t happened….It’s sad for everyone involved…even Corch and the Buckeyes who will always hear that it was a huge factor if they indeed win..

    But it restores my faith that some people actually stick to priciples.

    Go Quackers! Kick some Buckeyebutt!


    • That whole thing is mysterious…their Coach said the testing was “NCAA mandated” or something to that effect. In any event, who tests for weed the week before the Natty? Even the powers that be at UGA aren’t that stupid…I hope.


    • Did they(Oregon) actually have a choice in the matter? This was as NCAA drug test.

      It was not up to Oregon and it was not an Oregon administered test. The NCAA requires all its D1 and D2 member schools test its athletes year round, and the NCAA does its own drug testing in championship events. The schools can set their own penalties for failing the school administered test. The NCAA’s penalty for failing the NCAA administered test during a championship event is harsher than any school’s penalty; it is a one year suspension from competition for the first positive test, Remember last year when the Michigan (I think) player failed a drug test during the NCAA basketball tournament? He was a redshirt junior and he would have been ineligible for his senior season due to the test during the NCAA tournament. He went ahead and graduated since there was no point in returning to the basketball team.

      Players are much better off failing the school tests during the off-season and regular season rather than failing the NCAA test during championships.

    So the ganja is the topic of conversation, not the disorderly conduct and resisting arrest? They are still waiting for more evidence – like; what else, he had a gun and shot someone? What evidence don’t you have to make a decision?

    Did I read that correct? That two of their DBs graduated and that three DBs declared for the draft? I don’t remember them being that good.

    He’ll be playing in the opener against Auburn.

    ACC need, baby!

    We have all seen that Urbie does not feel compelled to suspend immediately after an offense, he didn’t at Florida, and Ohio is even more lax regarding rules. There would have been some delay as that snake found a way to keep his athletes available, and I don’t think the crime or the ruling body would have changed that.
