    Sounds like Athens PD need to issue citations for racism. They can meet their quotas and the racists can keep their mouths shut. Two jerks one stone.

    This whole thing is very sad.

    I think Otis could show the NCAA this thread and he'd probably get his waiver. Yikes.

    Wait, Police have quotas?

    Great comments! I see it as giving UGA and Athens an unneeded black eye...no pun, please! This reflects badly on UGA as an institution. Reese has been lawyerd-up and is attempting to gain immediate eligibility. Recruits see this stuff and could shy away from the seeming "trouble." Mays still lingers in the headlines as well. I am a UGA grad and never saw one day of racial slurring...others obviously have. I was affiliated with the team as well. Times change as do rules. The Athens police? Not one incident during my stint. New officers today...lots of pressures I never saw...culture very different. IMO. Coach Smart is handling it by SEC and NCAA rules. Not so much by emotion. His off-field MO but not his on-field..LOL. He gets excited.

    I hope this passes soon. UGA has a very pro-player enviro. Pro family. Not the way Reese portrays it...or Cade Mays. GO DAWGS!!! Let's think FOOTBALL!!!

    I think so. My local police have gone out of their way to kindly let me know the speed limit is 35 and not 40 multiple times

    maybe they don’t

    They cant write you a citation unless your going more than 10 over, but they can still stop you. Disclaimer- That doesn't apply to GSP they can write you for 1 over.

    Quotas are illegal.

    Fellas, I think we are overthinking this--all of this angst and all of this bile. It is really about Otis getting to play this year. He will say whatever is necessary to be eligible because he wants to play. I get that.

    Are you saying it's wrong for a police officer to stop you for speeding?

  • pgjacksonpgjackson Posts: 11,191 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    That's the problem. The NCAA and SEC have rules governing transfers. Players have discovered that if they lawyer-up and come up with some reason then the powers that be will likely capitulate. Exaggerated claims of systemic racism seem to work quite well. I mean, isn't that what Fields did...and where was he just a few weeks ago? If UGA is such an awful, racist, unsafe place...so bad that he felt he had to leave the entire geographic area, why was Fields hanging out on campus watching our practice? It's all BS.

  • PerroGrandePerroGrande Posts: 4,321 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I wouldn't take it personally. Look at Fields, Mays, and Reese and many others. They are going to make any argument they can to create leverage. They have none in the system the NCAA/SEC has set up. I get this, and the Dawgnation should, too. It really isn't about racism; it's about getting to transfer and play while they are still young men.
