Okay...what did Mike Griffith say that got people riled up?

Saw on Twitter where some people were calling Mike out about something he said that involved a player’s mom? Was this written or on the podcast?

You know, nowadays I’ve learned that society tends to be too touchy and sensitive. Things get said and someone either takes it the wrong way, or twists it.

No idea what was said/written, but I’m going to reserve judgment until I read/hear it myself. That’s the fair thing to do.

    I think I heard him mention something on DN Daily...

    I think it was in connection to the beal/Cox thing

    That was JJ Holloman's mom.

    I don't know, Florida and Georgia can kick players off their team and then Auburn will take them... I think Auburn may top the list

    College kids smoke pot ?

    Say it isn't so !!!

    The football players are held to a higher ( pardon the pun ) standard but trust me most if not all of them are doing it.

    Dang. Usually JJs mom is very pro-UGA on Twitter

    Without posting exactly what was said, a lot of this is speculation and could be taken out of context.

    I think AnotherDawg is right...there is underlying cultural tension around things like this. Like there’s a lack of “understanding” because smoking pot is more a less a given from where “they” are from. Doesn’t make sense to me, mainly because....aw, you know what? This is much too involved a topic to be hashed into on a site that’s supposed to be enjoyable.

    Maybe for another time or place. I know one thing...I’d kick my son’s tail for endangering his free ride thru college, especially doing something he KNOWS is against the law.

    So back to mom's tweet. Mike reported it, was not his tweet. Do we blame Mike? Well, he has choices as to what he reports. But adhering to Mom's tweet could be best for all. Lots of top tier players want in at UGA. Neither player nor UGA needs the bad looks.

    Very well said. When I first saw the tweet I was surprised. I don't know if she was frustrated or what when she sent that tweet out. She stated she had been calling the ACCPD about why that amount of pot was an arrestable offense and not just a citation. She couldn't get anyone to talk to her about it. My opinion is that caused her frustration and then the tweet.

    Usually her tweets are very uplifting, encouraging, and supportive of UGA and the athletes.

    Something I don't understand. We spent YEARS telling everyone how bad cigarettes are for them, millions of $ trying to get them to quit, sued every cigarette company that ever did business, but we want to legalize marijuana.

    Am I the only one that sees the irony?

    I can’t understand how elite athletes stay elite by smoking weed. One thing for recreational use by others but another when you are training to be the best with endurance.
