    This is what trips me out. Surely we should have heard something, anything hinting about a major problem BEFORE that day of the announcement.

    Who knows :dunno: the NCAA isn't known to act rationally or reasonably

    i doubt it'll be anything huge. i think AJC's milking the crap out of something minor because it's the offseason and there's nothing else to get people to read the ajc today.

    is there any other source to this or just ajc?

    Re: Official GT Under Investigation Thread

    Oddly enough, I kind of agree. I'm not trying to be a dick, 77, but the creation of this thread will just dilute the other thread as more people show up and snuff out the conversation about this announcement before it even had a chance to get started.

    just look at how they already got the mutts salivating over there in their comments section.

    major violations at u(sic)ga will be told as st. richt butt-dialing, but something minor at tech will be presented as NCAA WILL SLAM THE HAMMER ON TECH

    You really ought to chillax, strawberry brortcake. That's what these forums are for - discussion, speculation, suspected exploitation of minors, debate, etc.

    It's nothing.

    This is nothing more than a case of the AJC making a headline out of GT's "secondary violation" but when UGA reports one they put a tiny link of it at the bottom of the sports page.

    Just more AJC bias is all.

    If I recall correctly, the AJC nearly öööö themselves in their coverage of our punishment in 2005. They gave more attention to our ordeal with the NCAA than they did the upcoming game against a top five Miami squad.

    They probably found out that George P Burdell was receiving a scholly :facepalm:

    or perhaps the team knew we'd have to vacate all wins from last year, so they stopped trying :dunno: this would explain last year lol

    You're going to give StingTalk a reputation for having a bunch of threads that just have BS in them. When people find out that not all of our threads are bastions of golden information on our football program, they will be leaving for The Hive in droves.

    I just made a suggestion based on what I think would be the best method to keep a healthy discussion going. You can do as you like, I was simply trying to help.
