As I read Chip Towers’ piece on the background story on the now notorious Rush Propst tape…
In an interview Monday, Nelson told the AJC that he turned over the files to UGA “to give them a heads up.” He also said he does not believe the allegations and doesn’t think anything will come of it.
“I don’t think they’re in trouble because of who said this,” said Nelson, referring to Propst. “That man’s credibility is zero and they’ll put this out in no time. I’d be surprised if the NCAA spends more than a minute on it.”
… UGA on Monday directed the AJC’s questions to compliance director Will Lawler, who also did not respond to requests for comment.
“This isn’t about (college) recruiting,” Nelson said. “This is about money being diverted into somebody’s back pocket. … There’s nothing to all that all other stuff. There’s no way the NCAA tries to make anything out of all this. I don’t see how they could.”
… one thought immediately came to mind, unbidden: how would Greg McGarity have handled this? (I mean, besides considering whether he should suspend Nick Chubb retroactively.)
