Heisman winner Jameis Winston accused of stealing crab legs, crawfish

Just heard a great talk by MR in Orlando last night. As an alum, thank God we have MR , who cares about people and doing what is right. I do not want to win so bad as to have my university represented by thugs who are keep having problems like FSU dude.

Kudos to UGA, MR, and to thie idea that you have to behave.

Education a new defining issue for 2016 GOP class

@marshalld: Do you or have you taught?
Your coments are 100% CORRECT!!!! I have taught all my life and see exactly what you say. Without major change, INCLUDING PARENTS AND KIDS THEMSELVES BEING ACCOUNTABLE, AS WELL AS POLITICIANS, we are in great , great trouble.

Paroled felon nabbed for UGA theft, credit card fraud

@lowspark: Agreed.

There was a famous movie in the 1970's- Papillion, about a man sent to the French system where, once you were there, you were legally dead. It was not a pleasant place- surrounded by ocean and swamp.

One of the first lines in the movie, as the prisoners are marched into the courtyard- the French officer says

"Welcome to the penal colony of French Guyanam whose prisoners you are and from which there is no escape." Works for me.

Gun carry rights expanded in Georgia under new law

Maybe the fundamental problem is deeper. Both sides have good arguments, depending on how you believe.

What about raisnig kids to be respectful? Under control? To think before they act? To do as our country used to do and lock up truly crazy people, instead of having them circulate in society fixing to strile again.Yes, I know they were mistreated and that is wrong. But my safety being compromised is wrong also. How about convicted felon repeaters not being allowed out ?

these I believe are many of the deep seated problems that are not addressed by any collection of law makers at any level.

Emmert supports more efficient, effective NCAA

The NCAA should be destroyed for how they pervert "justice" and thge treatment of the athletes, and the lie they perpetuate about "student-athletes"

In lieu of its demise, They at least need to fire Emmert and anyone associated with him, and anyone who is not a hundred times better and more fair than home.

As you said Marshalld, he is running scared.Let him keep running.

Apparently his interview on ESPN recently did not go well for his majesty.

TO ALL OF YOU WHO ALREADY POSTED: I AGREE FULLY.Working with youth I see first hand exactly how they are enabled by gutless political appointee judges and govt lawyers.

Did they ever read BF Skinner?

I guess they are keeping more people in jobs by allowing rampant crime. And certainly more lawyers to make more money as they defend the same person over and over. Repeat business.

WHEN DO WE GET ACCOUNTABILITY FOR JUDGES, AND DA'S. I feel sure the cops would like it , also. Maybe home security companies would not , though.

4 UGA football players arrested, charged with theft by deception

Sending a message does no good. When one lives a whole life of the rules not applying to them, they do not think anything will happen to them. Operant conditioning. Gotta be kinda slow to think you can double cash a check and get away with it.

4 UGA football players arrested, charged with theft by deception

It is the nature of a now increasingly dysfunctional society, and the feeling of entitlement. Kids learn this in h.s. where they are protected and no student is really held accountable any more. Teachers and low level administrators can do nothing abouot what gutless vote and power seeking politicians do that fosters this mind set.

Bluemonkey - please do not blame the system. It may be flawed but that is not why these kids have this mentality.

I doubt that our players are more delinquent than other schools' players. We read about it more, and actually do something about it more. This is a good thing.

There is a big difference in riding a bike down a street wrong way and fraudulently cashing checks. One of the biggest crimes now is identity theft, credit card theft, etc. Maybe if someone - PARENTS TO START WITH-taught morals this would be less frequent. Maybe if the kids would LISTEN AND DO WHAT IS RIGHT it would help.

We can always go back and only recruit true students, and that would help also. Most kids who have 3.8 gpa's and 1300 SAT scores do not do this while in school.

Blog: Equal opportunity spring practice on tap for Bulldogs

In the mid 70's the Dawgs went to the old Tangerine Bowl and LOST to Miami- of OHIO!

The next spring - Dooley had vowed that it would not happen again- spring football became open season for all. Coach Russell started the famous JUNKYARD DOGS.

It didn't happen again. This became one of the greatest eras in UGA football history.

Let's hoe history repeats itself.

GO DAWGS!

Blog: Looking at impact proposed play-clock rule change on UGA vs. Missouri and Clemson

I fthey pass this rule they need to mke a similar rule for basketball. If a team has a fat, slow player on the floor the other team cannot shoot for the first 10 seconds of the shot clock. It may cause injury to those people.

football is going to have to change just like basketball did. There is a reason basketball players can get up and down the floor better than they used to.Football will need to get faster and leaner, as they did once before- headed by the Bear himnself. There are not many big slow posts left in basketball, and most can handle the ball at least some.

What did King do to get banned? How does one get banned? Please, I am apparently very unaware. Do they say the wrong thing, or do they say it the wrong way?For how long are they banned?

Also, do the thought police track them down and exile them? Or can they live as long as they do not bother anyone?

Freedom's just another word for nothing else to lose- Kris Kristofferson.

Just wondering.

@theold33:

A day or two ago you replied to me that many bloggers had gone to another location. that I am not familiar with. Can you direct me to it?

I have enjoyed reading, and occassionally posting, both sports stuff and political offerings. It would be sad to see it end. Trying to read the Atla paper blogs on UGA is impossible. There is so much ignorance, meanness, and nonDawgs smarting off. Not much educated thinking on that one. Not much real analysis.

Will The Dawgs Be Better In 2014?

33,

I hope you are right! I think luck again will play a big role.Injuries, etc. The D should be much better, but it comers down to talent. Last year at different times I met Ray Drew and Marcus Stroud. Difference is huge, literally.And Stroud was not big fat and slow.

Offense can be really good- deep at all skill positions. But the line bust grow up quick.

The players need to decide not to get suspended.

i like your optimism. The D players were certainly enthused about Pruitt. Let's be optiimistic, until and if we see something different.

GO DAWGS!!

Beasts of the SEC? UGA off to best conference start since 2003

Congrats to the Dawgs for playing so hard. Amazing what effort will do, isn't it?

Our Dawgs are winning with very little talent. Not many on our team would have a shot at being on a top 10 or 20 team roster.

The great John Wooden, long before Saban, said " Success is the peace of mind one gets from havinbg done the best he can."

Hope y'all in and around Athens will give them your full support to recognize the effort.

GO DAWGS!!

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.
