image4 things column: Carson Beck Lamborghini sign of times for Georgia football

ATHENS — Kirby Smart likes to say Georgia players “eat off the floor” when it comes to their football, and the results certainly speak to having a hard-nosed, premium product.

    Its we are we are today like it or not, and it all started years ago with coaches salary explosion and allowing them to basically go into transfer portal of sorts for coaches (contract out clauses).

    Value of education means nothing anymore if you are a * athlete.

    Its were we are so you cant blame kids for taking advantage.

    While I am somewhat surprised by the choice of a car for the young man, I am more in the "who cares" camp.

    I hope he has access to secured parking!

    I've had a very successful career that has rewarded me quite well, yet chose to live well below my means, more of a "Warren Buffet" approach to lifestyle and spending, if you will (though by no means anywhere near his income level!) . But that's me. Everybody has their own brand and legacy they want to build, including how, where, and why they spend their money... it might not makes sense for me, but to each his/her own. Go Dawgs!

    You want the fans to shut up about Kirk meddling with recruits while you harp on what kind of car our QB gets through some NIL deal?

    These two are not equal. Not by a long shot.

    I've never liked NIL, makes pros out of amatures, among all the other negatives.

    It did bring Carson back, though.....he has been unselfish and has my support for him using his "earnings" as he pleases.

    Only thing...Coach, put a governor on that ride!

    ...can you imagine if a player had a Travis Kelce moment with Smart what would happen on the Georgia sideline?



    Go, Dawgs!

    Recommend Carson Beck pay for some sober investment advice. He lost $100K or more the moment he drove it home from the dealer. He will probably not be receiving such sums for long as even the average NFL career is just 2-3 years. Lots of former NFL players selling cars and mortgages just to make ends meet. Lots of people get up very early every morning plotting to rip off young people with instant wealth…

    Exactly. People keep acting like he dropped cash on this. The dealer and Lambo got a ton of press off of this. He probably has a short term lease that he's barely paying on. I bet he's paying more for insurance than the car.

    All 85 scholarship players at Utah got a >$60k truck. No one cared about that. Why does anyone care about this?

    Oh, b/c Mike needs to deflect for his buddy so he's writing about crap that happened over a week ago and has zero impact on the program.

    I'm still in the NIL and the portal are going to destroy college football camp.

  • 78Dawg78Dawg Posts: 164 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Buying a Lambo? Sorry but this is just a bad image and bad investment on Carson. How long before Athens PD pulls him over? Money is ruining the game.

  • BigDawg61BigDawg61 Posts: 2,360 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Lol....you don't really think he paid "sticker price", do you? This was more than likely just part of the deal. Great advertisement for Lamborghini. That's what NIL was meant to invoke. Don't get queasy, now....Just cause the optics of a College Football player getting paid, seem **** or over-the-top.

    With 3 or 4 million bucks....he can buy a fleet of Lamborghini's and Maserati's, if he wants to....if he gets permission from "Maserati" Marv at OSU, that is. It's been like this, with cars & athletes, going back to when I was a kid. The only difference is....the price of the cars. Used to be Corvettes and Trans Ams...back in the day.

    His money, his life..not my place to decide how he lives it.

  • GtheGreekGtheGreek Posts: 880 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I think if I were Carson I would have opted for a sporty Lexus at a third of the price and spread some NIL jack to my O-Line.....WR's.....RB's....TE's... The entire Defense and the guts that slug it out everyday on the Scout Team!
