- If you have time to read only one blog post today about Damon Evans, make it Kyle King's, of our very own Dawg Sports:
The biggest question: Do I think Evans will keep his job? Honestly, I don't know, but I will say that virtually every source I talked to before the news conference thought he would offer his resignation. The fact that Michael Adams is on vacation may delay any sort of decision, too. But the truth is... this is going to be very, very hard for Evans to overcome at Georgia. Which isn't to say it can't be done.
- MaconDawg of Dawg Sports reflects on what the university may lose because of Evans' mistake:
I genuinely like Damon Evans. He is a Double Dawg and a Georgia Bulldog Letterman, sure. But he has also demonstrated himself to be a shrewd and decisive leader and educator. Last year I was talking to Roderick Battle about his sports management major. He surprised me a little when he said that Damon has been very helpful to he and other students in that program, that he would come to classes and explain to them why certain decisions within the Athletic Association were being made, and was always willing to have them stop by and ask him questions. That really stuck with me, because I like to believe that the folks over in that money printing factory known as Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall actually care about students and consider themselves teachers.
- Vineyarddawg of Dawg Sports compares Evans' decision to some of the dumbest moments in sports history. This is likely your first and only chance to see an athletic director compared to Tonya Harding.
- Bill King:
Frankly, I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t have to do a lot more than just apologize. UGA athletes arrested on alcohol-related charges must sit out at least 10 percent of a season. If Evans is going to get to keep his job, it would seem only fair that he at the very least forgo that $110,000 salary increase that went into effect today.
- The Bubba 'N' Earl crew know a Georgia Tech conspiracy when they see one.
- Chelsea Cook collects student reactions:
"I was surprised when I heard," said UGA rising senior Caleb King, who coincidentally has the same name as a UGA football player. "It's pretty hypocritical. Isn't he the guy who warns you to not drink and drive before every game?"
