Here’s a heartwarming story from Tallahassee.
A disturbing story involving Florida State kicker Ricky Aguayo has a Florida connection.
On Tuesday, the Tallahassee Democrat’s Karl Etters reported that Aguayo told police that members of a fraternity on Florida State’s campus beat the player over missed field goals during a game against Florida in 2016.
Per Tallahassee Police records obtained by Etters, Aguayo reported being “jumped” by members of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity in front of the group’s house after the Seminoles’ 31-13 victory against the Gators. Aguayo missed two of three field-goal tries that day…
The report goes on to mention that police saw blood on Aguayo’s face and a ripped shirt. He declined to press charges, and he refused to pursue medical treatment, according to the report.
Mind you, that was after a win. Can you imagine what those scamps might have taken upon themselves to do if Aguayo had missed a game-winner?
Meanwhile, we take you to the Georgia Tech locker room, where two players evidently decided to eliminate the middle man. It happened in the spring, so I’ve got to say I’m impressed they kept it quiet as long as they did. Then again, maybe they thought nobody would really care.
I’d say, stay classy, ‘Cock fans, except I expect I’d be wasting bandwidth.
I swear, every time I read a story like this, I think of my favorite line from Nobody’s Fool.
At least no trees were harmed.
As the final chapter to the tale of one of the most arrogantly stupid decisions in SEC history, Ole Miss swallows its institutional pride and apologizes to Houston Nutt.
You don’t have to be a moron to run an SEC athletic department. It just seems that way.
Big enough that Auburn’s own associate athletic director for strategic communications had to tell ESPN that some of Jacobs’ comments about a softball coach who left the program were “unfortunate” and possibly “misleading”.
Is it just me, or does the SEC appear to have more than its fair share of athletic directors who couldn’t find their way out of an open paper bag?
Maybe Greg Sankey needs to provide conference-wide logistical support for how to conduct media relations. Sure, that might cost a few bucks, but you can’t put a price on avoiding self-inflicted wounds.
This is quite the screw up.
Enjoy your unplanned redshirt season, kid.
Jason Butt talked with someone who was fortunate enough to observe yesterday’s scrimmage and shared this tidbit:
As a whole, however, head coach Kirby Smart was dead-on about the receiver group. It was an inconsistent day for the receivers apparently. In addition, one receiver picked up a celebration penalty following a score, which irritated Smart. The receiver was forced to run stadium steps as a result.
What is this Tennessee game you refer to, Coach?
The great thing here is thinking running stadium steps is going to have an effect when getting gut-punched at the last second in a game that Georgia had all but won didn’t. There aren’t enough stadium steps in the world for that, I’m afraid.
