Not passing the Urnge smell test

Okay, let me ask you something:  knowing Jeremy Pruitt as you do, does this sound like the kind of reaction he’d have to a player who refused his coach’s direction to enter a game and was sent home at halftime?

Hell, if things went down the way they were described at Pruitt’s presser, I’m surprised Sapp hasn’t been suspended — disobeying a coaching order like that would seem to be the definition of violating team rules, no?

Maybe it’s just that we’re seeing a kinder, gentler Jeremy Pruitt.  (That sound you hear is Occam’s snicker.)

    If Pruitt screwed up he’d never admit it.

    Perhaps it wasn’t Pruitt’s decision, ifyaknowhatimean.

    Knowing Pruitt I’m more likely to believe the player is now hanging upside down by his ankles above the practice facility. Any chance Pruitt is beginning to realize how short in the talent department his team actually is?

      I don’t think you’re getting it – Pruitt lost his shit on the sideline at a player, sent him back into the locker room and told the press that Sapp refused to go in. Sapp released a public statement denying that and contradicting everything Pruitt said. Now Pruitt is backpedaling. Now try to piece it together.

        I get it. If Pruitt was as mad at the player as he appeared to be on the sideline, I would expect the player would be hanging up somewhere today.

    Pruitt needs him, more than he needs Pruitt.

    Fulmer is pulling his strings and giving him prepared statements.

    In other news, UGA opens as a ~32 point favorite. Has UGA ever had a line this big going into a conference game? I mean, dayum…

    While I am surprised no one has broken it down frame by frame like the Zapruder film, I think the whiteboard kick is involved in all this.

    Pruitt is talking to the linebackers, Sapp is in the front row to the right. Pruitt says something, looks like he hears something, then throws up his hands, walks away and kicks the board. He then looks back at the players with disgust and walks back to the sideline.

    I would venture that Sapp or the player next to him had some smartass comment, and Pruitt went bananas. After that its anyone’s guess.

      Right, because Pruitt wouldn’t go bananas unless someone antagonized him….

        Oh, no no no….I don’t put anything past Pruitt. I think both sides said there was a confrontation…that was it. Just surprised no one has broken it down to see if you can tell what was really said.

          The whiteboard incident doesn’t appear to be the point at which Sapp left the game, though. Not from what was on TV anyway. It’s Pruitt – I imagine he spent most of the game going ballistic.

  10. All I know is I’m upset my 5 year old will not be able to watch the UGA-UT game with me this weekend, as apparently the MPAA has already assigned an NC-17 rating to the upcoming game due to anticipated “extreme violence and degredating acts of sodomy.”

    While watching the USC game with a buddy at local Taco Mac, we had to listen to some idiot UT fan scream at the top of his lungs while sitting at the bar and watching his Vols on an iPad he brought with him.

    This guy’s reaction to every single play was over the top considering no one else in the place was watching the game. It wasn’t on a single tv just his mobile device. Nevertheless, my buddy and I started discussing the state of the Vols, the expectations of their fanbase, Pruitt, and Fulmer. We made a casual wager that Pruitt was not ready to be a HC in the SEC, he was too much of a hot head and that eventually he would lose his mind, Fulmer would have no choice but to get rid of him and then Fulmer would take one the the coaching duties.

    The break even is end of Season 2 … I took the over. He took the under. After watching Pruitt and his team briefly on Saturday night – I am pretty certain I will owe a $1.

    Damn!
    Who would ever use a tweet from Wes Rucker.
    Go to other better sources.
    One thing I am sure of there are a lot of little boys on this site.who just simply hate other coaches.
    There are at least 4-5 coaches on that staff who were on the sidelines when at UGA.
    If you think a coach kicking a chalk board is so rough, you might want to stay home.
    Boy a lot of you dudes have been sheltered all your life.
    Might want to find a sport more in tune with your being, like “water color painting”.
    Yeah, that is right. Remember some of you sitting on the north lawn campus drawing those trees.
    Beginning to understand why those coaches in the West do so good.

    So nice, Face Planting Eagles, Volunquitters and the Tay Bangs all have players quitting the teams in season…glorious times! Definitely damage control, but the damage is already been done…I take this as a good sign (for us) on how Pruitt screwed this up regardless.

    I was convinced before the hire that Pruitt would make a good candidate for Tannercee or TAMU. To the point the Senator and I got into a couple snarky debates over it. Damn, I was wrong.

    I will say this, if I’m going to be so unbelievably wrong, there are few greater consolation prizes than one where Tennessee’s dumpster fire hits a propane tank and UGA potentially gets a few free shots to improve its record against Phil Fulmer and swing the all time record against Tennessee. Good days indeed.
