The truth comes out: why Laremy Tunsil isn’t a Georgia Bulldog.

Sworn testimony at last week’s hearing (h/t) that eventually led to a protective order against Tunsil being dismissed:

… Desiree Tunsil alleged in court Friday her husband cussed her and got physical with Laremy Tunsil, then a minor, at a San Antonio hotel in January 2013 following a disagreement over a meal shared with members of the University of Georgia football coaching staff.

Tunsil played in the U.S. Army All-American Game in San Antonio. NCAA rules allow a prospect’s parent(s) to dine with coaches, but the Georgia staffers would not have been able to (and did not attempt to) pick up the tab.

Miller was “doubly upset,” Desiree Tunsil said, because Miller had to pay for their meal and he doesn’t like Mexican cuisine. Back at the hotel, Desiree Tunsil said, Miller called her expletives, leading to a confrontation between her son and her then-boyfriend.

PAWWWLLL, Saban would never let a damned Mexican dinner come between him and a five-star kid.

If you need a good chuckle, read the rest of the article.  Let’s just say that life with the Tunsils must be interesting.  It’s hard to judge who’s the most full of shit between the three of them, but Lindsay Miller’s got at least this much right:

Miller said in his closing statement… if Tunsil “weren’t an NFL prospect next year, we wouldn’t be here, your honor.”

    You just can’t make this stuff up.. God help us…

    I still don’t think Ole Miss plays straight in their recruiting.


    • What fresh hell is this?

      You’re not alone.

      You’d think a scam artist like Miller (if he is one, but…yes, appearances!) would have some respect for other scam artists like sports agents and the MIssissippi football staff. I mean, he perhaps could learn something. In other news, if you want a cut of the NFL money, this may not be the best way to get included.

    Clearly, Mark Richt lost control of breakfast fare in San Antonio. Tunsil may be a great player, but I think we could certainly do without his interesting family dynamics. Besides, I kinda like Mexican breakfasts, despite Donald J. Trump.


    • Gastr1

      You think he’s the only player we’ve ever had or recruited that had a situation like this? I can’t believe he is.

        Lord no…but the public airing of “differences of opinion” is different… its a lot easier to look like a fool publicly than it used to be.

    Fortunately, Theus and Houston have turned into pretty good tackles. Losing Tunsil was tough at the time, though.


  5. What fresh hell is this?

    Sorry I’m off topic here but I’m planning a trip to the cocktail party and could use some help. Does anyone have any advice they could share re 1. Where to stay? Near the Landing?…Jacksonville Beach?…Somewhere else entirely? and 2. Where and when to purchase good tix without getting raped?
    This will be 2-3 middle aged guys from PA who have never been to Jax before whose priorities will be brewpubs/craft breweries, good food, pregame fun and uh..well…scenery. Oh, and possibly golf if we decide to drag our stix down.
    Muchas gracias.

    If you can get a room, stay at Amelia, St. Simons, Jekyll (in that order) take your clubs and purchase round trip transportation to and from the game.

      From your “sign off”, I presume you would enjoy Mexican food for breakfast. That put’s your post in the ballpark.


  7. Mudcats Impala...

    Wonder what ever happened to ole Precious? Tunsil’s true love. I bet Tunsil dumped her in a NY minute when he saw all the trim chasing after a big time player in Oxford…

    I’ve always been particularly suspicious of UM Rebel’s success in recruiting super African American athletes out of Georgia. Maybe I am reading too much into this, but as much emphasis as there is in Confederate symbols these days, how does a young black kid justify leaving Georgia (the bastion of Civil Rights,) to play for a team with a Rebel mascot? I think I smell a money trail.
