“It’s an NCAA thing.”

I think every Georgia fan knows what it means when a player is suspended for four games and his coach says, “We have to respect what they say on amateurism.”

But I have to disagree with Saban a little bit here.

Bo Scarbrough is still recovering from a knee injury. Saban said he didn’t expect Scarbrough to be healthy enough to play early in the season anyway.  And it just so happens he’ll be back in time for Alabama’s game on October 3rd in Athens.  Anybody think things would work out so conveniently in an alternate universe where it was a Georgia running back in that situation?

That’s not an NCAA thing.  That’s a non-Georgia Way thing.

    That is like counting the prison time from the point of the crime, not the conclusion of the trial when a defendant has been out of jail, sometimes for years. “Sentence” begins when you are actually denied playing time for the offense.

  4. The ball just couldn’t bounce any better for Nick Saban–could it? NCAA suspension running concurrent with an injury. Wow that’s lucky!

    Would he be suspended if he wasn’t hurt or would it be swept under the rug by the water fall?

  7. Yeah, umm, and NCAA suspension running concurrent with an injury is most certainly NOT the [hopefully old??]Georgia Way.

    Let’s hope when they show up in Athens they are desperate for his help.

    We’ve seen how this plays out in Athens. JSW was suspended for a few games once he was healthy again. The bowl game against Nebraska didn’t count and neither did early season games that he wasn’t healthy enough to play in.
