Time again for the post that writes itself. All year long we just sit back and watch as the UGA football program continues to make a mockery of the name of our good state with their criminal antics and sophomoric behavior, all the while collecting the evidence for display in this annual post. I must say that this year lacks in the user generated content but excels in the amount of disgusting behavior of the fans. I can only attribute the low user generated stuff to the lack luster record of last year and the mediocrity of the schedule this year. Opposing fans tend to not care when you lose lots of games like last year or don’t beat anyone of note such as this year. I must warn you that some of the content this year isn’t suitable for small children but then again barking at each other and lifting your leg to urinate isn’t something that children should learn either is it?
Lets start off with a brief rap video entitled “Rollin like a Redneck”:
Onto a few notes from this off season. Lets start with former start receiver AJ Green’s results on the Wonderlic test. This test is given to all potential NFL draftees to gauge intelligence. I will let Jeff Schultz from the AJC summarize:
“Green had the lowest Wonderlic score of any wide receiver at the recent NFL scouting combine and was among the five lowest testers among 330 draft prospects.
Green answered only 10 of 50 questions correctly in the allotted 12 minutes. If you’re not familiar with the Wonderlic, it’s a general intelligence test. The average football player scores in the low 20s. Green’s score — 10 correct answers out of 50 questions — was among one of the five lowest results”
You could argue he is devaluing the Housing major at UGA but can you really devalue something that has no value to begin with?
Then there was this incident from the recruits in the off season:
Three suspects have been arrested in the Georgia locker room thefts and the individuals were football recruits, UGA Police Chief Jimmy Williamson confirmed on Monday.
Deion Bonner, Marquis Hawkins and an unidentified juvenile from Columbus were arrested by UGA police and charged with theft by taking over the weekend. They’re accused of stealing iPods and iPhones from the unsecured lockers of seven football players on April 7 during an open-house event at Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall. The estimated value of the stolen items was $1,330.
Bonner was charged with one count of theft by taking, Hawkins was charged with two counts of theft by taking and the unidentified juvenile with three counts of theft by taking, according to Williamson.
Then one of the enterprising young fellows turns to twitter to market his hot inventory:
Apparently he fit in so well he was offered a spot on the team as soon as his sentence is served!
The star recruit and current freshman tailback sensation, Isiah Crowell sure has a knack for posing in front of cameras:
Also in the off season, the CIA released footage of America’s formerly most wanted terrorist watching his favorite football team in the confines of his Pakistani compound:
Coach Rich, a Miami alum, showing his support for his team in the wake of the following allegations:
Hurricanes booster Nevin Shapiro described a sustained, eight-year run of rampant NCAA rule-breaking, some of it with the knowledge or direct participation of at least seven coaches from the Miami football and basketball programs. At a cost that Shapiro estimates in the millions of dollars, he said his benefits to athletes included but were not limited to cash, prostitutes, entertainment in his multimillion-dollar homes and yacht, paid trips to high-end restaurants and nightclubs, jewelry, bounties for on-field play (including bounties for injuring opposing players), travel and, on one occasion, an abortion.
He also endorses Obama’s 2012 campaign:
Apparently the two players thought they saw each other in a mirror and got scarred:
An instant classic from this years South Carolina game:
The rest of this is going to be dedicated to those who bark at their televisions every Saturday during the fall and really provide most of the entertainment (or embarrasment), the fans of UGA. Bless their hearts! :
University puts brakes on Greek transportation
by JESSICA LEVINE

Campus Transit put the brakes on renting buses to all University of Georgia Greeks after members of one sorority acted in an un-ladylike manner.
Alpha Delta Pi chartered nine Campus Transit buses to transport members for the 45-minute ride to and from the sorority’s formal in Greensboro on Friday.
The behavior of some of the girls interfered with the drivers, and the buses required “extensive” cleaning afterward, said Ron Hamlin, manager of Campus Transit.
This week, Campus Transit decided to deny bus rentals to sororities and fraternities for the remainder of the semester.
No decisions have been made on what the policy will be next semester.
“We currently are assessing our desire to work for them,” Hamlin said.
Alpha Delta Pi had booked another transit company, but it canceled last week, Hamlin said.
“They called us for help, and then it turned into a nasty situation,” he said.
Jeremy Skates, a Campus Transit supervisor, drove one of the buses on Friday.
He wrote in an e-mail to The Red & Black that one girl was so drunk on the bus ride to Greensboro she threw up three times.
“The 45-minute return trip was even better,” Skates wrote. “Girls were urinating in cups and bottles, then throwing them out the bus windows.”
When groups charter buses, they are charged at a rate of $55 per hour. Buses usually require about 10 to 15 minutes of cleaning after an event, which is charged to the groups at the hourly rate.
However, Alpha Delta Phi was charged extra because it took so long to clean the buses.
“One driver reported spending 45 minutes cleaning, and it still reeks of alcohol,” Hamlin said.
He did not know the total extra time spent on cleaning the buses.
That bus had to be used Monday for regular transit service because the University does not have many buses to spare, he said.
This is not the first time Campus Transit has had problems with the Greek community, he said.
Campus Transit enforces additional policies when renting to Greeks. A police officer is required on each bus, and no alcohol is allowed on the bus.
“Our primary responsibility is to provide a safe service. Not too long ago, there was a situation where a bus took a dive over a bridge in Atlanta,” he said. “We don’t want that to happen.”
Hamlin added it wasn’t the whole group that was a problem.
“There were nine buses,” he said. “It was only some of the girls on some of the buses that caused problems.”
Only individuals affiliated with the University can charter buses. Other student organizations rented buses in the past, but Hamlin said no other groups posed problems like the Greek community.
Efforts to reach MeriBeth Davis, president of Alpha Delta Pi, were unsuccessful Tuesday.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — After a mentally challenged Publix employee was severely beaten Friday after allegedly making a comment to a customer about his Georgia Bulldogs T-shirt, police arrested two brothers on charges of aggravated battery and resisting arrest.
According to a police report, James Wall, 26, was bringing a shopping cart from the parking lot on Duval Station Road back to the store about 5 p.m. when he exchanged words with Ryan Keys, 27, and Cade Keys, 23. Witness told officers Ryan Keys punched Wall in the face from three to eight times.
Police said Wall was missing several teeth and bleeding from the mouth. Wall, the son of a Jacksonville Airport Authority police officer, was taken to a hospital. Channel 4 was told the victim has the mental capacity of a teenager.
Police said the manager of the Publix provided a video of the brothers inside the Publix and a description and license plate number of the suspects’ vehicle, which they located at their home on Milton Drive. According to the arrest report, Ryan Keys refused officers’ commands to lie on the ground. When he was pushed to the grown, he refused to put his hands behind his back and had to be forcefully restrained, according to the report.
Cade Keys voluntarily came out of the house but refused commands to put down a telephone and cigarette and also resisted arrest, offices wrote in the report.
The officers also noted Ryan Keys appeared to be heavily intoxicated.
The report said that Ryan Keys told officers he thought Wall had an attitude and was going to charge his brother because “you know, he had that look.” When asked how he felt threatened by the victim, he told the officers, “I will always hit first,” according to the report.
According to officers, Ryan Keys said, “I hit him once hard enough he fell into the carts.”
Wall’s father told Channel 4 that he picked up two of his son’s teeth from the parking lot, and they have an appointment with an oral surgeon Tuesday.
That’s all for this year folks. Be sure to tune into the game Saturday at noon on ESPN. Feel free to leave comments but please remember that TomAndLara.com is a family friendly site.
