The good old days

Boy, talk about your blast from the past ($$).

Kirby Smart, for all of the games that he’s won at Georgia, is under intense pressure to win now. Adding transfers like Derion Kendrick will certainly make the 2021 squad better, but I haven’t heard much about if this is the right thing to do morally or ethically. Kendrick was kicked off the Clemson team for discipline issues BEFORE being arrested on drug and gun charges just three months ago. I feel like under Mark Richt a player with that history would be untouchable. For all that you could say about Richt, he always did things “the right way” and displayed class at all times. Is the pressure on Kirby to win now causing him to lower his standards on who puts on the silver britches? I hate to sound so self-righteous, but I also have two degrees from the school hanging on my wall.

Georgia fans fretting about the football program doing the ethically moral thing takes me back.  Missed y’all.  In fact, I’m surprised I haven’t heard this take more often.

Next thing you know, we’ll have folks waxing nostalgic about Jimmy Williamson.

    And people actually pay for this? I mean sure it’s only a dollar a year but just damn.

  3. I saw that letter came from a writer named “David P.”

    David Pollack, is that you? /s


  4. I trust Kirby did his due diligence on all of the transfers before taking their commitments. We recruited Gilbert and Kendrick, so Kirby definitely knew those guys. Addae coaches Smith at WVU, so I’m sure Kirby knew exactly what he was getting. I would assume Kirby looked into the thing with Kendrick to make sure he wasn’t taking an unnecessary risk.

      Mr. Smith was a good choice, the other two student athletes may be more of the “rented for a season” types…unless Mr. Kendrick wishes to smudge some shit in klempzens eye, both, he and Mr. Gilbert will be on their bestish behavior and gone to the next level…

    Jimmy Williamson approves this message.

    Strange days indeed Georgia alums complaining about their school’s player selection. Then you turn on the news to find Senator Tommy Tuberville discussing national security. We do live in interesting times.

    Well, la de fucking da, Seth. I don’t give a shit how many degrees are hanging on your wall, your opinion is no greater than anyone else. I cancelled my subscription a couple months back and haven’t missed it.

    Ethically moral? Sigh.
    At this point I’d overlook a blood sacrifice on that granite bulldog to ward off evil ref magic.

    Anyone who waxes nostalgic for that thieving, bible thumping con man ex coach who had a never ending list of players being arrested, suspended and dismissed as doing things “the right way” can kiss my lily white ass.

  12. Richt wasn’t a saint who always did things “the right way.” You don’t win the 2010 Fulmer Cup by doing everything the right way. This fan can go pound sand, and so can Seth.

    Yes, and good guys finish last.

    Or at the very least, 2nd or 3rd.

    Sure, millionaire coaches should never take talented kids and try to give them another shot chance.

    Happy Father’s Day to Derion, everyone in Dawgnation should be pulling for him.

    Newspapers are dead, there is so little left. Informative with a pay wall is not what this world needs. Be it responsible or not, we have enough issues in this world. I quote President Lincoln June 17. 1864, “America has become a house divided.” End quote. Some things never change. Topics may subject matter does not.
