    Wow, a speeding ticket in a 55...never seen that happen. That speed happens every day on 75, 85, and 285. Nothing to really see here in my opinion a freshman made a mistake. Was not racing, just had a lead foot, lesson learned.

    A young man driving too fast. It’s scary, sad and extremely common.

    Guilty as charged pay the fine go through the class and slow down! I am glad that every time I topped 80 mph I did not get caught in the day! Youth equals foolish choices and the graveyard is full of examples.

    "undisclosed internal discipline".....my suggestion would be for first offense, a fine of 10% of all NIL money earned during the players tenure. Second offense, 25%, after that it would be a question of commitment to the program and future as a DAWG.

    I believe in second chances and kids learning from their mistakes. Speeding is starting to become an epidemic with Georgia football players. Whatever Coach Smart is doing to deter this behavior is not working. Not only did kids from the team die from this, but it is the possibility of another motorist meeting that fate with players driving at a high rate of speed. It is like condoning drinking and driving. It is time for someone to be made an example. If not this behavior will continue.

    Every time one of these kids get stopped for speeding they become marked men by the police because all their driving information is on record for any cop who wants to profile a black kid driving by in a shiny new car. This happens everyday. It's called "driving while black".

    BigDawg61, what you’re asking for is actual journalism. That horse is dead and buried. There was a time that journalists and their editors took pride in the stories that went to print for public consumption. Now, professional bloggers, with no grasp whatsoever of English grammar, obviously have no editors. They throw mud against a wall to see what sticks to produce clicks and then move on to find more mud. Stories with context? They went to the grave with the likes of Bisher and Outlar.

    My sentiments, exactly. I think, maybe the reason we don't have better journalism today, is.....

    1. Because, we don't demand it.

    OR

    2. ?

    I guess, most of us have learned to do our own research. But, Journalists have access to information that we don't have, through the FOI Act and "Press Passes". Like it or not...we depend on their integrity as journalists to seek all relevant information from every available source, and report the facts.....BEFORE....giving their opinion.

    It just doesn't work that way, anymore....but, that doesn't mean "it shouldn't"...IMO

    Go Dawgs...work past this narrative. Or, better yet...ignore it and keep working. Good dogs.

    Looked at your last three headlines, Mike - chose not to read any. Should you think this off-topic, I assure you that is a matter of opinion, as I think it a very worthy topic.

    Grew up there. Did more than my fair share of times going those speeds. Only difference was that I didn’t have the media watching my every move with a spotlight. Good luck to the man. A ticket (or 2) for speeding and he’ll remember to slow down. I promise you numerous UGA students do this everyday. They just don’t play football.

    Everyone please turn on their sarcasm alarm. Just when we got dinged again this week by the airbag AJC of course one of our idiots knew just what we needed to take the attention off of the problem.
