His decision, your consequences

Shot.  (Literally.)


This past weekend was not one that will be remembered fondly in the proud history of Georgia Southern football.

For one, the Eagles lost, 28-20 to Louisiana. The setback was the program’s third straight of the season, and served as the last straw for head coach Chad Lunsford. He was fired Sunday.

As if all that wasn’t enough, a video clip of an Eagles player surfing on top of a bus and chugging a beer extended to him from the crowd made the rounds online.

… AD Jared Benko indicated Sunday that Adcock’s surfing escapade factored into his decision to fire Lunsford.

“I share with our coaches and staff all the time, every day is an evaluation… Everything up to the time of the decision was factored in,” he said.

    Too bad it wasn’t the catalyst turning around the season. That very well could’ve become a tradition.

    It didn’t help that the offending player later jumped offsides on a critical 4th and 1 in the red zone.

    Is anything going to happen to No. 57?

    Somewhere in Athens, Vince Dooley is breathing a sigh of relief that social media didn’t exist when Jake Scott was playing for him.

    Having been to some games there over several seasons to watch a nephew play I can say life there is about 20 years behind Athens. Drinking till falling down seems to be a tradition encouraged. They excel at partying when winning. I can only imagine how they handle “Oh no we suck again” football.

    Timing is everything. Doing that after a big win and he’s probably a legend. Doing it before a loss and all hell breaks loose.

    It probably killed his subpar football career, but from his Twitter feed I see he’s a budding bro-country singer. So this stunt gets him major dirt road cred within that putrid genre.

    Before the game is all that needs to be said.

    After the game, high times and social media gold. Before the game, everyone loses big time. It’s the way it’s gotta be…….
