Contrary to a rumor I heard, all of the autograph money did not come from my address in Conyers or Judd Doster’s address in Eatonton. You might remember, Tech went through a similar situation with Bebe Thomas in 2009. Thomas took some free clothing valued at $300. I have said since then and continue to say that the NCAA and some of its rules are a joke. But wrong is wrong and UGA will now suffer the consequences.
I was proud of Coach Johnson at the time. He basically told the NCAA to take a hike and played Thomas anyway. Tech went on to win the ACC and go to the Orange Bowl. I saw it with my own eyes, even if the NCAA says we didn’t win it.
My guess is Gurley will be back for the Tech game and I hope so, I don’t want any excuses when the Jackets run all over them in Athens this year.
Don’t look now but the Jackets are 5-0 as I write this with a slew of winnable games coming up. Early success has put the Jackets in the polls and given them a chance for a special season.
