Damon Evans out at Georgia

Hey everyone. Happy 4th of July to all you American HOTTIES and your families.

We're very lucky to live in a country where people can say what they think in an honest manner. You know who made that happen, who makes that happen right now.

Thank you.

To the business at hand ...

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is parroting a report made by WSB-TV that Georgia athletic director Damon Evans will be employed for only a few more hours. The school reportedly will announce Evans' resignation on Monday.

You probably know that Evans recently was pulled over for DUI -- hours before his new contract (which called for a $110,000 raise) went into effect. Evans himself says drunken driving is a bad idea.

You probably know that some other, embarrassing things occurred during that traffic stop.

He'll soon be unemployed. And that sucks.

I like Evans. He's good for Georgia. He's good for the Southeastern Conference. He's a younger guy, a competent guy, whose voice among the league's power players stood out for its lack of stodginess.

Can Evans realistically remain athletic director? No. He's become a punchline. A leader can be a punchline, but the jokes must center around professional decisions. When personal decisions elicit the laughter, it's a totally different deal. Now he's the drunk AD with red panties in his lap.

That won't work.

So we'll soon hear how The New Guy is better. I won't believe it. Georgia already was making progress.

I know the guy made a big mistake and couldn't realistically keep his job, but you've got to feel bad for the guy. Just shows how one spur of the moment decision (in this case, to drive the car) can ruin a life...

This decision ultimately ruined a career.

Fortunately, he didn't crash into someone and take a life.

Best way to avoid DUI: Don't drink. Works for me!

Its just so ignorant. He was about to get a raise to start earning $550,000 a year, but didn't have the common sense to call a cab?

Write it on your hand, for Pete's sake. Such a shame how this one bad decision has essentially ruined the man's life.

Man, every time someone is pulled over in the middle of the night smelling of alcohol, having trouble keeping his eyes open, with a pair of panties in his lap, and with a young girl who isn't his wife in the car with him, people always assume the worst.

Why not let her drive if she gets pulled over no big deal even if she didn't have her panties on.

What a sad ending to this guy's career at UGA. All he had to do was keep his nose clean and he had it made. Guess that shows what happens when priorities get out of whack. Hopefully others will learn from it. I'm pretty sure he will. You gotta feel for the wife/family as they'll be suffering from his horrible choices for years to come.

3:22 PM

My guess is the wife pulls a Mrs. Tiger and gets paid. This guy is screwed in so many ways.

Unfortunately for her, he doesn't have Tiger's asset base to pull from. Once the lawyers get through with him in a few months, he's gonna have about half of whatever he has now. In the immortal words of Eddie Murphy from Raw - "Give me half eddieee"

I prefer to look at the good side. Sure he lost a good job and his family, but he did get a pair of red panties out of it, so all is not lost.

Quote from Chris Low
Remember, the SEC Football Media Days begin on July 21, and I'll be in Hoover, Ala., all three days reporting. To me, that's always been the unofficial kickoff to the SEC season. One change this year is that the teams are bringing three players for interviews instead of the traditional two.

Does this mean that football season is really a lot closer??

9:28 AM  
Blogger Ephemeral said...

JaSteve, your comments have made me chortle multiple times this morning.

It seems like prominent folk would learn from Tiger's and numerous other situations that have been in the news. But apparently they do not.

Well, Bag took on the crimpson nation and their obsession with the number 13 in the Advertiser this morning. He wrote about the reaction to CL's list. Could it be his short time blogging for the HABOTN helped him see how annoying they can be?

Have a Happy 5th (of July)!

10:03 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

13...8....Still a bunch of football titles and more than anybody else in the SEC.

Bags acts like football didn't exist prior to the AP poll. That's ridiculous on his part.

10:13 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Lemme guess: Bags taking a "stand" and getting people riled up?

Nahhhhh.

10:19 AM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Well, let's be honest. Organized football (to get a recognized national champ anyway) didn't really exist before the AP Poll.

And the fact that an Alabama SID basically decided in the 1980s, forty to fifty years after the fact, that Bama won national championships, speaks to this.

I agree. Eight is still a bunch of football titles. But it's the fact that eight is not enough and Bama fans cling desperately to this mythical number of 13 that is so troubling.

10:34 AM  
Blogger digger4au said...

E-Bro eight should be enough and it is idiotic to claim more.
What is even worse is for a Univeristy of higher learning to put that hat on and proudly claim them. It should be embarrasing.

10:56 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

How many does Auburn claim?

Going by my reading of the Auburn media guide (pages 157-195), I see the following:

1913 (Billingsley)
1957 (AP)
1983 (New York Times, Rothman College Football Researchers Association)
1993 (National Championship Foundation)
2004 (Peoples Choice, which I believe was started by a member of this blog-George Brown)

11:04 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Granted the 1913 team looked like a beast. Think they only gave up 13 points all year.

11:06 AM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Supposedly Evans is gonna get three months severance and the previously earned $100,000 longevity bonus per some dude named Tim Tucker

11:14 AM  
Blogger JaSteveFC said...

I have decided we should claim the national title for 2008. Oh sure, I know we lost a few games along the way, but I give a lot of credit for style points and being in the news.

11:54 AM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

I haven't read the Tucker article, but TT is usually correct.

I guess it comes with the territory for some folks that success inflates egos thus causing the infidelity and other "bullet proof" type behavior.

11:55 AM  
Blogger JaSteveFC said...

Tuberville shouldn't have said what he said because he is a member of the conference that he predicted wouldn't last. Comments like that can be a self fulfilling prophecy.

What he said was true. The disproportionate sharing of football revenue makes the Big12 a bit of a joke because it is blatantly not on even playing field, but his comments weren't constructive.

12:00 PM  
Blogger JaSteveFC said...

Evans has resigned. I love these type of resignations. Either you resign or you are fired. Which one would you like?

12:18 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Faker...I was expecting you to cite the Auburn media guide, and as they say, don't bring a knife to a gun fight.

How many Auburn fans have you ever seen wearing a shirt that says "Got Five?"? I'm guessing none. While it's regrettable that the Auburn media guide list these, it's nice to see that Auburn fans have never to my knowledge given given credence to this claim.

If you ask them when our last national championship was, I dare say that they would reply 1957. If you ask them how many national championships Auburn has won, they will reply one, 1957.

It's called integrity. GET SOME!!

P.S.

I still love FSJ and having him around here.

Oh, I have debatable integrity, but I've always said 1941 was bogus.....However, it evens out since we got ripped off in 1966 and 1977.

If you want to see something fun, go look at Notre Dame's championships and see how many of them came in years in which they were above playing in bowl games.

Imagine the fate of say an Army officer of ten year's experience in the same situation - Immediate discharge and potential charges for "conduct unbecoming" no matter how he performed on duty or even in combat.

I'd say Damon got the best deal possible out of the situation. Besides, based upon the transcript there were several bad decisions made, not just pulling out his car keys after drinking.

One of my half year resolutions was to start using the stress relieving squeeze toys I have on my desk. I would totally get massive forearms then.

The problem with half year resolutions is that I have trouble keeping true to them for an entire half of a year. Sure, I'll start out strong, but by August I am back to my old habits.

Re: the batman comment, I grew up watching Super Friends episodes, and we just bought several old Super Friends episodes on DVD for my kids. The story lines are ridiculously bad, yet my kids are glued to it, just as I was at that age. One of the episodes was titled "Day of the Planet Creatures". They must have had to brainstorm a long time to come up with that title.

When I was very young, probably around 5, I saw the best movie ever and for years waited to see it come on again. Then 3 or 4 years ago I did some searching on the net and figured out the name of the show, which turned out not to be a movie. I actually ordered the CDs for it because it has excited me so much when I was 5. Needless to say, it doesn't seem like the classic it once did.

It is good to see Kiffikin do the right thing and let these new recruits go since they really shouldn't be punished.

MrsTHT fed me a humongous dinner. Does she love me? Perhaps, but I doubt that had anything to do with it. I believe her motive was to sabotage my effort to be the first in the family to lose 5 lbs. It worked. I went from -1 yesterday to +1 today. I better go run so I can eat my bowl of ice cream tonight.

btw, I'm all the way up to two tenths of a mile before I give out. baby steps.

You go, THT. I am having to run (they call it jogging, I call it sprinting) with this boot camp. We had to run a mile yesterday and for 30 minutes today. I haven't run since college. They are also making us drink about 96 ounces of water. I am so sore and for some reason the position you have to assume to get rid of all that water is extremely painful. I think it is some evil plot.

OK, on basically little more than a lark, I packed up the family and headed for Panama City Beach. We checked in, headed to the pool, and this black guy see's my Auburn hat and gives me a "War Eagle" which I returned. Then I tell him he's got the Trooper Taylor look going on, hat backwards, etc. He says - "thats me, I'm Trooper Taylor!". He gives me his card, and I get a pic of him, me, and my sister. Avatar changing soon.

CincyT ...

I think he has a collection he wears when he's out in public to blend in.

Wearing an AU hat ... as he said as Frank Abagnale, Jr., to Jennifer Garner's character in "Catch Me If You Can" ... Even better.

not really, JGT. Bizarre would be seeing that lid on your coconut.

yes, I'm watching the replay of the Tour de France. But y'all can go ahead and blab about it since I've read the story of today's stage.

I guess it's a good thing I read the story of Stage 3. MrsTHT just confiscated the TV.

API ...great story. I'm glad Trooper is on our side.

Lane Kiffen doing the right thing. Not necessarily predictable for him, but good to see.

I'm watching right now, THT. You want a play by play? Should be interesting once the Peloton reaches the cobblestones.

When it comes to Kiffen: EDSBS says it best


SEANTREL TO BE RELEASED
Never say Lane Kiffin didn't do a sensible thing. "A", the indefinite article, indicating a singular here as USC will likely release Seantrel Henderson to attend another school (likely Miami.) He could say something about his lack of commitment indicating a general lack of character, but he would then burst into flames of hypocritical self-immolation.

For schools going on probation, any athletes that commit after the offenses should get a chance to transfer with no penalty. Not only would it not punish innocent kids, it would mean a more meaningful penalty for the school.

I'm not going to the new thread. This is my favorite thread and I'll only post here.
