Another couple of championships as we all know what's most important...
Oh, come now. We all know that the most important thing for them is to ensure that their student-athletes earn the best possible education on the way to their professional careers…playing in the NFL, showing up to do nothing meaningful at rural car dealer dealerships, or dropping baskets of fries at Wendy’s.

Okay...so exactly what is the "punishment?"

This quote from the article speaks volumes. (emphasis mine)

"“Y’all got to slow down,” the officer who works in traffic enforcement said on a body cam video obtained by the Athens Banner-Herald. “We’ve been getting all of y’all a lot. You obviously know about the other wreck and stuff. Y’all got to slow down. I’m sure Kirby wouldn’t be happy about all this. Especially 81 in a 45.”"

The AJC has just fired a major shot at uga and their culture problems.


"Two miles south of the University of Georgia, where McIntosh played on the national-champion football team, his high-performance Dodge Charger struck an Uber driver’s Kia compact SUV with such force that it ripped wheels off both vehicles. The police arrested McIntosh on charges that included reckless driving — his third traffic offense in less than six months. A judge later fined him $685.

Any penalty imposed by McIntosh’s coaches apparently was far less severe.

McIntosh, a running back, played in all 15 of Georgia’s games last season, amassing more than 1,300 yards of offense, including 126 in a national semifinal game against Ohio State. His value to the team outweighed the gravity of his offenses."

"Kenny McIntosh’s Charger kept rolling down the street despite losing its driver’s-side front wheel after striking Uber driver Tenisha Burwell’s Kia at 4 a.m. on April 24, 2022. He told the police he was driving about 60 mph on the narrow two-lane street. The speed limit is 40.

McIntosh was not wearing a seat belt but escaped injury, in part because the car’s airbags inflated. Burwell complained of chest and leg pain but at first declined emergency medical attention, worried her health insurance wouldn’t pay for it. She went to the hospital only after she slipped into and out of consciousness several times.

The collision totaled her car, but she recovered from her injuries, Burwell said in a recent interview. She didn’t want to say more about the crash.

“Athens is very small,” she said. “People are very particular about UGA football.”"

“Well, the players know what the punishment is.” - Kirby Smart

Yeah, that's the problem. The players know the punishment is virtually nothing.
Oh, he probably makes them run up and down the stadium seats a few times and asks them if they’ve learned their lesson. Brutal.

And right in front of the donors, too. How embarassing.

"Exactly how Smart punishes players is unclear. In one instance, in 2019, he ordered six players who had been arrested over the previous six weeks to run the steps of Sanford Stadium in front of a select audience of donors to Georgia’s athletics department. Otherwise, he routinely declines to disclose disciplinary actions after players break team rules or the law."
