This year’s early leader for the Mettenberger Award…

… given to the former Georgia player whose spring game performance is trolled the most at GTP as proof of the staff’s inability to judge talent, is – the envelope, please – Tray Matthews!

The former Georgia safety earned MVP honors with five tackles, a forced fumble and an interception.

Congrats, Tray.  I’m sure this won’t be the last time your spring game stats are mentioned here.

This is why we shouldn’t make fun of other schools’ fan bases.

I’m just sorry I didn’t run into these folks yesterday.

It’s a Southern thing.  And I do understand.

Come for the football. Stay for the seafood special.

Lawyer be lawyerin’.

Well, according to Kim Stephens, Jonathan Taylor’s defense attorney, Nick Saban conducted an “extraordinary thorough” vetting process before admitting his client to Alabama.

How extraordinary?  Extraordinary enough that if Stephens’ story is accurate, Ken Mauldin, who is the ACC DA, and Mark Richt stretched the truth about being contacted by Saban or his representatives about Taylor.

There’s no point in jumping to conclusions now – this situation has had more than its share of twists and turns, for sure – but even if Alabama’s made a final decision against Taylor’s continued enrollment there, it’s surprising that Saban didn’t respond publicly to challenge the claims of no contact by Mauldin and Richt if Alabama did in fact reach out to them.  Or, if not call the two out in public, speak privately with Richt to point out that Alabama did try to speak with him in order to get Richt to correct the public record.  But maybe Saban doesn’t have time for that shit.

Or maybe Stephens is just relaying what he thinks/hopes happened as opposed to what he knows.  Beats me.  Though a defense lawyer’s gotta do what a defense lawyer’s gotta do.

UPDATE:  There’s a interesting note from this piece about Saban’s kinda, sorta mea culpa.

Saban was aware of Nawab recanting her accusations when he stepped to the lectern for his news conference Monday, the coach told ESPN.com.

So at least Saban and the UAPD are talking with each other again.  I was worried about that.

“The charges against Taylor will be reviewed at a later time.”

Boy, that didn’t take long.

So, does Saban give Taylor a mulligan now?  And how long before the false reporting to law enforcement charge gets buried?

Kabuki theater, with a badge and court.

UPDATE:  Yeah, this is real cut and dried.
