“This is the second marijuana-related incident for Rivers at Georgia. He and freshman linebacker Natrez Patrick were arrested on Nov. 4 on charges of misdemeanor possession of marijuana. The November arrest led to both players being suspended for Georgia’s game against Kentucky on Nov. 7. A former four-star defensive end according to 247Sports Rivers appeared in four games for Georgia in 2015. He recorded four total tackles over the course of the regular season.”
“Chauncey Rivers DL Frosh arrested early Saturday morning for possession of 1 ounce or less of marijuana a misdemeanor charge was booked in the Athens-Clarke County jail at 1:12 a.m. on Dec. 12 with bond posted at $1000. He was listed as “currently incarcerated” as of 2:15 a.m. according to Athens-Clarke County’s website.”
This football program is fractured broken-up.
1 fired guy whom everyone wants to fawn over.
1 new guy who doesn’t want to come here and take charge solely himself.
And, 1 guy whom is solely responsible – you know ? The head coach of this football team.
While this is Coach Kirby Smart’s first arrested/suspended/kicked-off, I am quite certain that his predecessor here is over at the jail now telling him how much he loves him. Which is after all what he told him less than a month ago when he LAST WAS ARRESTED. His predecessor got all the accolades for recruiting him here.
The fired coach is in-town tonight for the Gala Event. I wonder if we sold any game jerseys of Todd Gurley II at the Gala ? The fired coach’s brother-in-law married to his sister Kevin Chappy Hynes. Did he get any monies for said jerseys owned by in fact The University of Georgia ? Maybe Chappy is over there too at the jail both of them together telling him how much they love him. Not maybe. Probably. Probably on all counts.
Coach Kirby Smart’s reaction will be totally different.
Trust me !
To make my points once again : All these people need to get the Hell out of here ! That would be (1) fired coach (2) his brother-in-law (3) the kid arrested twice in a month and (4) anyone else sending mixed messages that they love the kid for twice being arrested for what is in every state of this great nation against the law because of the kid’s age.
And Coach Kirby Smart needs to be here – like Jeremy Pruitt is at Alabama.
This is exactly why they all need to get the Hell out of here. And, exactly why Coach Kirby Smart needs to be here in charge of the team he was hired to be in charge of – just as Jeremy Pruitt was hired to be in charge of their defense at Alabama – NOT Coach Kirby Smart.
Why again is Coach Kirby Smart not calling all the shots as the in-fact Coach of this football team ?
Loyalty to whom ?
Your fiduciary responsibility is to whom hired you and whom is paying you $5,380,200 plus retirement – including incentives. We expect you to be taking care of these kids sir.
Both of these arrests would have been made in EVERY state in the nation, as the kid is under-age in Colorado, Washington, Alaska, Oregon and Washington D.C. He is taking finals now and the Bulldogs’ football program is broken-up with the fired guy back and Coach Kirby Smart NOT IN CHARGE until January 12, 2016.
If I were the Coach, I would have quit Alabama the New York Nanosecond Nick Saban hired Jeremy Pruitt and he told Alabama he was no longer the defensive coach here at Georgia but there at Alabama – if not SOONER !
I would then go to the jail and get in the kid’s grille and have it out with him.
Have it out.
Do you hear me ?
Then at the jail, bail the boy out, call his mom, tell her to come get the kid and take him out of my home where he would be studying until she arrives. And, then I would stand there and insure he takes his finals and does well.
After the finals, I would then kick him off the team for 2 arrests in less than one month’s time.
And, I would call his mom again and tell her she needs to see if she can keep him in school at Georgia, that his scholarship is OVER.
Congratulations Chauncey Rivers for being the 1st. No one else can EVER say that.
I do not send mixed-messages. I tell it like it is. I pull no punches. I take no shit off anyone ever and never will. I do the right thing. I am consistent. I am not 2-faced. Everyone knows exactly where they stand with ME by God !
