A couple of issues that will no doubt be the talk of the day...
Montez Robinson has been arrested again -- this time in connection with a fight that occured in October. He's being held without bond in Athens Clarke County jail.
At this point, I'm working on getting comment from the school, and I'll keep you posted as news develops.
Also, I've been asked about this a bunch... While I have not yet been able to speak to Rodney Garner directly, everything I've been told has been that he's not leaving at the moment. I know most people want to speculate that because he coached this past year without a contract and because he is not likely to be named the DC that he'll bolt, but Garner has been at Georgia for a long time, and there's a reason for that. If a better opportunity comes along, I'm sure it will be considered, but I think it is wrong to assume he'll leave just for the sake of leaving.
Anyway, as I've said before, approach rumors with caution, and I'll do my best to keep you posted on the stuff that gets beyond the "rumor" stage.
Also, my email is still down, so I have not been able to reply to anyone who has sent questions in the past 48 hours or so. Hopefully I can get it fixed today, but I'm not exactly holding my breath.
