You can take the coach out of Georgia, but you can’t take Georgia out of the coach.

My favorite thing about this Finebaum interview with Jim Donnan is that Donnan refers to the SEC East as “we”.

    It became “we” for Donnan when that Athens jury smiled down upon him and then Kirby came along so he’s doubled down. Donnan admits that he didn’t get the job done at Georgia.

    The 80 million dollar question here: why does anyone seek this man’s opinion about anything?

    Of course, as “we” all know, it is not a crime to not be very smart, nor is it a crime to be somewhat careless.

      He’s a regular on the Athens sports radio show 960 the ref and I honestly always enjoy his commentary. I’ve NEVER heard him dog the Dawgs and he can very self deprecating about his own life experiences.

    I wonder if he is doing that interview from the The Oconee Course at the Ritz Carlton? He is a regular fixture there. I don’t think I’d be placing a wager with him though……………..

    Donan recruited and advised many friends and others, including former players and coaches, to invest millions of their money in a scheme that never had a chance at success. He continued to aggressively recruit investors (victims) as the money dried up. Count Jim and Todd Donan among the early investors (promoters) who actually made money. People who lost money invested because they trusted in and believed in Donan and he preyed on those relationships. I wish Finebaum had asked him if he had paid his former players back for the money he stole.

      Sounds like he should’ve been appointed Commissioner of Social Security.

        You are correct on that. It’s sad but the federal government celebrates the death of every US citizen over the age of 62. That helps keep things afloat and allows congress to keep kicking the can down the road. They are really looking forward to the baby boomers passing on.

      Pretty harsh words for someone who doesn’t know what they’re talking about. As a close friend of Todd, I can assure you that Todd lost everything, including his house. His sisters did too. He made money in the beginning and sold everything he had to pay it all back. Just a little FYI on the Donnan family…Jim’s wife Mary is fighting very aggressive lung cancer. I applaud him for trying to keep things as normal as possible during this time. Especially since he knows that folks are always going to call him a thief when he goes out in public.

      • Your account sounds like what everyone experienced in this case. Donnan always said he got hurt in this scheme.

        The saying holds true … if it’s sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

        The court records are there for anyone that wants to read them. OJ was found not guilty at trial too. I hope those pesky attorneys got every nickel they could to help the victims of Jim Donnan.

  6. Donnan said “every quarterback has got to win the job every year.”

    Where was this sentiment when he was coach?

    I like Donnan. After all, he is the last Dawg coach to give the gators thorough beating.

    Donnan doesn’t bother me. Never has. I’ll always appreciate him giving a typical Loran Smith question the kind of response it deserved.
