Looks like they caught Kirby’s bag man.

Weiszer“Georgia reported three NCAA violations involving the football program for impermissible recruiting inducements between October and the end of December in its latest quarterly summary.”

Here’s the big one:

One violation resulted in football staff members being prohibited from going with recruits or their guests to the UGA bookstore.

That stemmed from am Oct. 17  violation when a non-coaching staff member gave a $50 loan to a recruit’s parent to complete a purchase. The parent said he would repay the loan but the staff member failed to collect the repayment when the family hurried to leave campus for a flight.

Georgia stopped recruiting the player and the staff member was barred from recruiting activities for 90 days.

Fitty dollah!  Wait ’til Gator fans get ahold of that one.

    I think they sit around and brainstorm the most petty violations they can come up with to report for laughs just to show the ridiculousness of the whole enterprise.

    Why are we still doing this? I thought the big boys had pretty much said “F you” to Emmert and the gang.

    Mike Adams would have ordered the forfeit of all out 2021 wins and vacated the NC. FTMF.

    2 seconds after he did that, Alabama fans would claim another NC. They’re probably doing it now, anyway. FTMF, too.

    Hang on – are you telling me there’s stuff in the bookstore for $50 and under?

    I’m sure the sane folks over at Stingtalk will have a rational, reasoned response to this news…

    How does something like that even get reported?

    LOL we’re still self-reporting ticky tack stuff like a $50 purchase when Texas A&M is out there giving players oil drilling leases as NIL “endorsement opportunities.” Don’t ever change, Georgia. Seriously.

    A staff member prohibited from accompanying a recruit and family to the bookstore? SHUT THE PROGRAM DOWN.

    That’s akin to Kirby and staff being prohibited from recruiting Vermont until spring practice is over.

    To borrow and paraphrase from the movie “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels”…

    (Georgia): “Do you know what it’s like to get punished for giving a recruit $50?!!?”

    (Auburn): “No…I’m afraid that’s a little out of my league.”

    Hilarious. And absurd (from both the UGA and NCAA angles).

      I mean, we had to stop recruiting the kid over this as well? I hope that “constitutional congress” the hollow suits are dreaming up addresses the silly little things like this. Not holding my breath though.

      $50?! FIFTY?!
