    90 pounds of weed is TOTALLY a personal use amount. Nobody says anything when someone gets a 5 gallon container of Olive oil at Sam’s. Bulk purchasing is totally cool! 😎

      That’s what I was thinking. You know how smart them Tech boys are. He calculated how much he could save if he bought his weed (medicine, excuse me) in bulk. It just doesn’t seem fair to arrest someone who’s exercising the top notch economic and math skills he’s learned from GT.

  2. Cool breeze Ramsey – I’ll forever link him with that disastrous ’99 AU game. Was it that game or the Purdue game where Donnan replaced him at halftime with Joe Kines? (I believe Purdue, which we were down 25-0 yet came back to win, in which Purdue was shutout in the second half, thanks to Kines).

    I was in school at UGA and had a friend who was a D starter on the ’99 team, and he said Ramsey was completely and utterly clueless. They were all amazed Donnan made the hire in the first place, and literally everyone knew it was a horrid hire during spring practice.

      I thought a5 the time that Donnan hired him because of his reputation at Tennessee as an ace recruiter, especially with Atlanta kids. Wasn’t it the year before that Donnan hired Rodney Gardner away from Tennessee, too? I thought at the time his plan was to weaken UT by taking away its best recruiters while improving our recruiting.

      Gardner did recruit well for us for a period of time, but I am not aware of any big signings we got as a result of Ramsey. Instead, Donnan lost some support from influential fans.

        Ramsey was such a failure at DC that we never were able to reap any rewards from his recruiting prowess. By the time we were getting shallacked by Ben Leard BTH, Ramsey was curled up under a table crying and Kines had to step in.

        That was a long time ago, Ramsey has learned and grown, I’m sure. I hope him nothing but success at Clark-Atlanta.

        I will go to my grave believing Ramsey was a sleeper agent who left Tennessee with Fulmer’s blessing to implode the Georgia program. #wakeupsheeple

      Auburn game was when Ramsey started calling defenses that weren’t even in the playbook and there was nearly a fight in the coaches booth. Good times

      • Right – wasn’t it like 31-0 at halftime? If I recall, to make things worse, earlier in the year Ramsey got cocky after totally shutting down SCU at home, and he basically thought he was the man. Problem was that SCU went 0-11 the previous year and had no offense, no talent, etc. Yet everyone knew it wouldn’t last and they would get exposed soon enough.

      Richard Seymour, Marcus Stroud, Boss Bailey, Charles Grant, Will Weatherspoon, Tim Wansley, and more all added up to the worst defense in the SEC under Ramsey’s tutelage. I think they would have been better served by simply playing base defense 100% of the time with zero calls and just letting them go.

    Third best OL in the country? 5 years ago we would have been wondering what alternative universe the rankings were coming from.

    I’m a little worried that Drew Lock will be dropping back behind the 7th best OL. I gotta trust SOD to screw that up.

    Zach Smith is an absolute psycho and aside from how the Meyer saga plays out I’ll be interested to see if tough questions are asked of the police department that was involved. Somehow I doubt it, despite the fact that it seems evident some people there were more concerned with protecting Ohio State than Courtney Smith.

        Brett McMurphy turned up most of this in about 24 hours. If the “investigation” after 14 days comes back and says “no foul,” it’s going to look unmistakably like a farce.

      Complete sociopath. Does anyone believe he’s going to stop stalking her? He should have been shot and killed trying to break in her back door at 1:30 am. That may sound harsh, but I’ve been close to a similar situation. Douche bags with this pathology don’t quit until they’ve killed someone, been put in prison, or move on to another victim. Things have escalated with the firing and he will blame her now. I really do fear for her life unless she has constant protection. Think Drew Peterson.

        I was doing a review of Lisa Germano’s Geek the Girl ~25 years ago and was floored when I got to “A Psychopath”. Guys like Zach Smith make me think of this song. I’m not sure terrifying is the word I would use to describe the song, but I still cannot casually listen to this album.

    • “Zach feels like he is above the law and has no respect for the authorities…” Gee, I wonder why? Beating your wife for 10 years with impunity from the authorities or your employer will do that, I guess. It’s like dealing with little kids…if there are no consequences for bad behavior, it will happen again.

      Maybe if this guy was actually fired from his job in 2009, instead of shielded by Meyer and friends, he would have learned a lesson and could have turned his life around and saved his marriage. Too late now. Psycho is right. Although, I’m sure he’s a real standup guy around the coaching staff and a real role model for the players that he’s around….

      During the early stages of my midlife crisis, I went to a turf field one afternoon to run barefoot gassers like in the good old days and the field was dang hot. I realised I was still a dumb ass and age could never take that away from me. As far as getting lit up on old fashioned AstroTurf, this field turf stuff seems pretty plush

      Our district just installed it’s first artificial field. It will be interesting to see how it holds up. It feels weird underfoot but I suppose you would get used to it. “Slow” was my first impression.

  9. In further news–UDub 5 star recruit is granted release, cause of family problems, issues, etc. Family says he needs to be home in Reno, to be closer to home and because he had lost a lot of weight. SHOCK: Two days after release he agrees to play with Bama—who just lost some linebackers. Immediately eligible. Bagmen supreme. Cause you know Tuscaloosa is a lot closer to Reno than Seattle.
