Greg Sankey acknowledged yesterday that the concept of a uniform conference drug policy won’t die.
Sankey expects a uniform drug policy to make its way onto the agenda eventually.
As for when? That’s something he can’t predict.
“Part of my expectation is that will at some point be a conversation because we’ve had so much turnover in personnel that it’s now asked with more frequency in meetings,” said Sankey, who noted twice that changing personnel at universities could lead to that discussion. “And from a staff standpoint, we’re prepared for that conversation. As I mentioned, having a student athlete conduct working group, that may be an agenda item we assign there. I wouldn’t predict when other than it will be an agenda item at some point is my anticipation.”
It sounds to me like Georgia will keep pushing, in other words. And from its perspective, why not? If you take the harshest approach in the SEC, bringing every other school to your stance levels the playing field. Which is exactly why it’s doomed. Don’t take my word for that.
