The biggest question for Saturday night…

… isn’t what you think.

It’s whether Riley Ridley and Elijah Holyfield, who were both arrested for marijuana possession earlier this year, suit up or are suspended.

If they play, it’s the clearest indication yet there’s a new sheriff in town when it comes to Georgia’s drug policy.  If that happens, I wonder if there’s anyone in the administration or on the Board of Regents who will have the guts to step up and publicly defend the change.

    We already have the answer – Smart said they are receiving ‘internal discipline,’ which is code for “they both will be eligible to play.”

    New sheriff in town indeed. RIP The Georgia Way.

    I’m guessing neither one suits up for game 1….we shall see.

    Or even better if they will step up and condemn Smart for playing them.

    Don’t care too much either way..as long as they don’t do it again.
    Whatever it takes to make them realize it can’t happen again is what’s needed. Smart needs to make it hurt..so badly that another infraction would be all the information necessary to realize the kid puts this ahead of his team and his own future.

    I think they suit up but don’t play.

    I don’t think we see either one of them…and here’s why…Kirby does not want this battle in the middle of the season. He knows that there will be too much talking point emphasis on this stupid policy and will create division in the ranks. It will be asked about at every presser, and he doesn’t want to answer the question over and over. I do believe that next years school year will see a change in the Georgia Way Handbook. But let’s get one thing straight, here folks…there is a new sheriff in town. Just because he hasn’t changed every policy in less than two years does not discount the fact that he has the keys to the building.

      I’m so tempted to post as “Chongo Dawg”, but the Senator has rules…anyway, good post.

      I too doubt they’ll be seen this week.

      While the “Georgia Way” may be a’changin’, we don’t want to see any of our kids wearing a gasmask…Got to have some repercussions for breaking rules.

    Wait. Has anyone checked with “the conscience of the SEC”?

    I’m fine with internal discipline for a first offense. Otherwise we are our own worst enemy.

    I think they will both be withheld for Appy, I believe his “internal discipline” means we aren’t going to announce anything publicly; internal means just that, kept amongst us and not the business of others.

      Bingo. I think it is a stupid rule and we shouldn’t have it, and I curse Mike Adams every year it bites us in the ass, but I have also sat as a judge looking at what I thought was stupid law, but followed it because even stupider than the law would be to just not follow it. If I did that, there’s no law at all. So, Kirby will follow it, but his talking points will be “we’re going to handle it internally” and move on. It really doesn’t require any elaboration.

    Too bad theres no way to blame holyfield for both events. He transfers anyway at the end of the year, if not before
