100 Days of SEC Dominance: Sorry ‘Bout Da Condoms


Quick: Name another conference in which an athletic director has had to issue a formal condom apology? You can’t do it. SEC for the win!

Per Chip Towers of the Athens Banner-Herald, Georgia AD Greg McGarity offered this in response to Ludacris’s Magnum Condom request:

I do want to take this opportunity to apologize to our board for mistakes we made with certain aspects of the details of an entertainment agreement. Few things in my professional life have bothered me more than this situation. There are no reruns in life so we need to turn the page, learn from our mistakes and do everything we can to make sure errors of this nature do not reoccur.

 

There you have it. Few things in Greg McGarity’s professional life have bothered him more than this situation.

100 Days of SEC Dominance: All The Ole Miss Bonuses for Players


Look, people should get paid for what they do. You probably get paid for your job. Sometimes I get paid for mine. College athletes should get paid for theirs. So shout to Ole Miss for handling things the honorable way by allowing/encouraging things the NCAA doesn’t like and then saying, “No way. Not my staff. That was the old Ole Miss guys.”

Nothing too major here unless you’re into rules or whatnot, but a few high points:

  • 13 of 20 (65%) of the allegations against the athletic department were against the football team. So with 16 scholarship sports listed on the website, 6.25% of teams did 65% of the cheating (allegedly). That’s SEC concentration right there.
  • Nine of the 13 football-related allegations occurred under current head coach Hugh Freeze who somehow quite conveniently saw this story spun quite differently right before National Signing Day. SEC Spin Zone. AKA Shaggy “It Wasn’t Me” Zone.
  • Ole Miss let concerned citizen Laremy Tunsil borrow $3k to buy a car from someone he wasn’t supposed to and some folks got to cruise around in loaner cars for a long-ass time. Can’t spell “Free Cars” without S-E-C.
  • Some athlete got $2,253 worth of free lodging from June 7, 2013 to May 27, 2014. Let’s hope that wasn’t one continuous stay at one place. Because I don’t know that I’d classify a place valued at $6.36 per day as a true “benefit.” Can’t knock that SEC hustle.
  • Two recruits received some stuff. So SEC.
  • Other things happened. SEC! SEC! SEC!

You do you, Ole Miss. Sounds like everything is and was above-board here.

Move along.

Crappy Georgia Blogger Cons Readers Into Reading Articles on Crappy Georgia Blog


Dave T is today’s MVP. Seriously, Dave T, where are you? I’m going to send you a DYC sticker or something.

So about an hour ago, Dave T took issue with my first post of the morning (entitled “Commemorate #93KDay With This T-Shirt“). It was a blog post about a #93KDay T-shirt I am selling. Seems simple enough. But I guess it wasn’t clear what the article was about, so Dave T expressed his disdain (screenshot because this is so strong). Apparently he felt somehow tricked into clicking the link:

Dave T1

 

Ah. So Dave T, as of 12:44 p.m., was pretty over the whole DudeYouCrazy thing. The site’s not funny. It’s never been funny. He is hesitant to click the links and he wonders why he even bothered.

But then we just reeled the poor sucker right back in. My next post (with the catchy title “About the Ludacris Rider“) must have been too much to resist.

Welcome to Click-bait City, Population: Dave T.

Twenty minutes after complaining on the other post, he offered this on the newer post:

Dave T2

 

A half dozen things to point out briefly:

  1. I’m not 30-something. As a guy who’s as close to 28 as he is to 29, that’s as insulting as it is preposterous.
  2. I don’t just talk about Monster drinks…I drink them everyday.
  3. No comment on the adderall.
  4. I have no salt life sticker.
  5. I have no truck.
  6. 30-something me would love to drive a truck though.

So, since Dave T just can’t resist me, I figured I’d throw him a bone and blog about him for a change. It’s the least I could do for a fish that’s probably been caught three times in one day at this juncture.

Here’s to you Dave T.

Cheers!

About the Ludacris Rider


Look, Luda’s rider and G-Day pay day was a big enough deal to justify a dope t-shirt. But it’s not that big of a deal.

Musicians get paid to perform. That’s kind of their whole thing. Honestly, the fact that he was only paid $65k is suggestive that Ludacris (past his prime, but possibly quite strong in a 15-minute “Greatest Hits” concert) wasn’t the reason so many people showed up. I have no idea if this list is remotely accurate, but there’s a slew of artists that command more than $100k for a concert. And although the gig was only 15 minutes, it still commanded a large chunk of Mr. Cris’s day.

And the rider thing is pretty commonplace. My fraternity used to host various artists for parties and whatnot in college. Those guys had riders too. No one would ever trust me with a shopping list, so I don’t know if yogurt and condoms were on those riders but they might have been.

Hell, I have a rider for my own appearances at tailgates and whatnot. I don’t show up if you don’t have my list. This is last year’s edition so it may be subject to change. But I don’t watch a game with anyone (in Athens, at home or elsewhere) without these items:

So this is probably a non-story. But Mark Richt is probably rolling over in his naturally tanned South Beach grave knowing that McGarity paid him to leave after winning 10 games and later paid for Ludacris’s condoms.

Commemorate #93KDay With This T-Shirt


 

Everything is clicking right now. When you think DudeYouCrazy, you think of the three F’s:

  1. Football – That’s what we do here.
  2. Fashion – That’s what we do everywhere.
  3. Finance – That’s what the Dude does in the real world.

This t-shirt rolls all three F’s into one celebratory garment. After all, Spring Game t-shirts are the new Championship t-shirts. You can’t win a national championship if you don’t win your own intra-squad scrimmage. That’s just a fact.

A lot goes into making a football program great. You need great facilities for your current players and to recruit future stars. You need the most skilled coaches available or at least someone to coach each of the game’s three phases (even special teams). You need condoms for whatever rapper chooses to grace the field before your team scrimmages (that’s real). This shirt captures all that.

And guess what: you can own part of this history. #93KDay can be everyday if you buy one (or several) of these bad boys. So support your local blog. All proceeds go to a good cause: the aforementioned local blog.
