On a scale of 1-10


Posted: Aug 13, 2013 3:43 PM
 

How tight will the Georgia kickers sphincter be if his first kick in a college game is the opening kick off against Clemson, in front of 85+ screaming fans, on national television, with Sammy Watkins standing in the endzone. I'm thinking there is a good chance he hits a snap hook into the sideline stands.

Didn't they lose their starting kicker?

If so I'd go 8 on a wet behind the ears freshmen.


The BEST kicker mishap I've seen was the year

UNC and Peppers kicked our ####!

But they kicked to us after the half...and the guy completely missed the football and fell down.

I've never heard that many people laughing at the same time.....it was awesome!

They haven't announced if he's suspended or not yet.


How very S.E.C.

Look breaking the law is bad, but if it's going to cost us a football game...well then, that's different. We suspended Sammy for the Auburn game last season.

He probally will be, but I'm just clarifying that he hasn't been suspended yet.


The fact that he wasn't suspended immediately


Posted: Aug 13, 2013 4:10 PM
 

Goes to where Richt's priorities are, we might suspend him, but uhm, we're going to wait and see if anyone else on the roster can kick.

Re: The fact that he wasn't suspended immediately

Personally I woualdn't suspend him. It's not like he was bombing down the street at 80 mph with an open bottle of jim beam and a bag weed. The kid was doing what alot of people do during the fourth of July holiday.


Most people get arrested on the 4th of July?

Also, BUI on 4th of July is stupid and dangerous. I personally know 2 people involved in BUI injuries and fatalities.

Beat me to it. Boats are inherently dangerous.


Posted: Aug 13, 2013 4:23 PM
 

I'd venture to say that, at least, 75 to 80% of all boaters are unaware that there are "rules", regarding proper boating.

Getting drunk and operating a boat is just as dumb as operating any other vehicle.

I didn't use the word most. I said alot of people and I didn't say that they got arrested. Alot people do spend the fourth out on the water hanging out with friends and having drinks.


What is the difference between most and a lot?

A lot of 'em, nay, most of them operate a boat like they're drunk.

So the fact that "everyone else was doing it"....

makes it OK?

He was chaged with boating under the influence which is just as serious as driving under the inluence and he reused to submit to a blood acohol test.

2020 orange level memberbadge-donor-15yr.jpg

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.


Refusing to submit to any test, of any kind, is smart.


Posted: Aug 13, 2013 4:25 PM
 

No need to provide authority with evidence. From a legal standpoint, if I were in his shoes, I wouldn't submit either.

2009_nascar_champ.gif

Yup, another Hi-Five


Posted: Aug 13, 2013 4:27 PM
 

If you know you're guilty why give them the ammunition. Let them get a warrant for a blood draw, by the time they get it, and get you to the hospital, you might be under the limit.

2020 student level member

If you aren't doing anything illegal, why not cooperate.


Posted: Aug 13, 2013 4:28 PM
 

From a legal standpoint, if I knew I was guilty and the test would simply confirm it, I would have probably refused the test too.

2009_nascar_champ.gif

They stopped him because....


Posted: Aug 13, 2013 4:39 PM
 

he was towing two people on a tube behind a boat without a spotter which is also illegal. Once they stopped him, they could smell the alcohol on him. That is when Game Management asked him and he refused to submit to the test.

That if you're doing something illegal, don't draw attention to yourself. Breaking two laws at the same time is what usually get you.

most people who operate boats have absolutely no idea what the rules and/or laws are and therein lies the first problem.

he shouldn't be pulling anything without a mirror or spotter.

Or, he could have thought, "I'm a freakin bulldog! Eff em!"

2009_nascar_champ.gif

My guess is he made two mistakes....


Posted: Aug 13, 2013 5:07 PM
 

1 - he didn't know the boating laws and/or rules, and

2 - he didn't realize the effects of alcohol are exacerbated on a hot sunny day.

Not to agree with the Georgia fan, but Sammy wasn't suspended immediately either.


In fairness, that's not really Richt's style....


Posted: Aug 13, 2013 4:16 PM
 

Granted, he does seem to be a magnet for kids with character or integrity issues but once he get's them on campus, if they screw-up or do something illegal, unlike some other coaches in the $EC, Richt generally suspends them for it.

Richt will likely suspend him.

Posted: Aug 13, 2013 4:23 PM
 

How tight is your kickers sphincter going on game day? Must be a little nervous about not having a kicker in a big game. Also, does your team plan on handing us the game like you did last year against USCe or are we going to have to earn it?

2020 student level member

Re: So, if Richt does the right thing and suspends him

I don't think they even plan on showing up. You guys have convinced them that that they don't stand a chance.

Just curious on your thoughts


Posted: Aug 13, 2013 4:32 PM
 

Also, I'm curious about your faith in your untested freshmen kicker facing a big time, hostile environment for his first game. I know my dig piddles on the rug when he gets nervous, I'm expecting the same from your guy. Like I said, snap hook into the sideline stands, which is probably better than not getting it to the endzone and giving Sammy a chance with it in his hands.

Re: Just curious on your thoughts


Posted: Aug 13, 2013 4:37 PM
 

Well considering that Marshall Morgan missed quite a few fgs last year I'm not convinced that he would be an asset. If it does come down to a fg though I suppose I'll just have to hold my breath. Our kickers haven't faired that well the last couple of seasons.

Well kick off worries me less than fgs. Just put Colin Barber back there and let him boot it as far as he can I guess. Would Watkins really be on kick returns.

Cool. Well all the kicker has to do is kick it. It's up to the coverage team to tackle him. But I guess if I were a walk on freshman kicker for an opposing team underneath the lights of death valley then my hole would be about the size of a decimal point.


Thanks for your honesty

I look forward to the public humiliation of your walk on kicker, followed by his redemption the next week against USCe.

admired beamer for the letting the home invader kicker back on VT's team. NOT!!! and since then they have steadily gone down hill. YOu have to have discipline and accountability. as Beamer and Booby Bowden got older they got more lax. It did not help either program. Of course VT has that qb which is enough to sink about anyone

When hasn't Richt suspended a kid for breaking the law or a


Posted: Aug 13, 2013 5:08 PM
 

rule? We had four of our top defensive players sit out of a game last season. We've already suspended a starting safety. I'm disappointed to hear a Clemson fan getting on a high-horse about discipline.


That's true, I will refer to Richt's experience


Posted: Aug 13, 2013 5:10 PM
 

He has been forced to suspend or kick off more players than any team in the nation. Of course, I'm not sure what that says about his recruiting or team character.

2020 student level member

I don't think there was room left by the choirboys


Posted: Aug 13, 2013 5:18 PM
 

that you guys recruit. I'm not saying our players are saints, but if one of your best player had the same issue that got a couple of our players suspended last year for four games, I wouldn't stand in judgment. I would never question Watkins' character for getting into trouble a ton of college students get in trouble for. I was an RA at UGA in the 80s, and kids got in trouble for weed back then too.


Trying to think of the last player we kicked out


Posted: Aug 13, 2013 5:30 PM
 

For sexual assault (or whatever Mettenderper ended up pleading down to) or driving around with guns with filed off serial numbers (Crowell). Clemson has it's share of problems, but not problems like that.

The punter and place kicker for UGa is mediocre at best. Perhaps they have improved a lot in the off season but we have them by the $%#s in the kicking game. Hope our return and coverage improves a lot.


They have a new kicker for our game

Posted: Aug 13, 2013 7:40 PM
 

A era of great defense and conservative offenses made the kickers be the difference in winning or losing.

O how times have changed.

Of course kickoffs have changed also. Nearly every kicker can easily kick it through the endzone.
