Second chance, with an asterisk

Greg Sankey puts a “not so fast, my friend” on the possibility of D’antne Demery to another SEC program.

“At the time of a National Letter of Intent is signed an SEC financial aid agreement is signed as well and in there is a recruiting prohibition. So the other schools in the league are prohibited in the league are prohibited from recruiting individuals who signed that agreement and that’s in place right now, for each signee.”

Whether that would apply if the individual in question spent a couple of years playing JUCO ball and then sought admission to an SEC school is a question for another day, but the way Sankey phrased that makes me think if Demery kept his nose clean, so to speak, he’d be able to work his way back.

    The other schools in the SEC can do what they want. If facing a talented player that we kicked out of town for beating a woman is the difference between Georgia winning and losing a game, well, chances are good that we would have lost anyway. Georgia did the right thing booting the kid. The rest of the league can do what they want to.

    It’s my hope that I never see UGA letting in a kid someone else kicked out of school for committing violence against a woman. There are other, smaller places where a kid can get his second chance. I hope I never see it in Athens.

    Am I the only one who thinks Sankey is angling to be the eventual successor to Emmert? Only top CEO’s can dissemble like this. CFB: where public relations skills go to die.
