Georgia AD Damon Evans no longer directing athletics at Georgia
Once the police report of his DUI arrest made its way into the papers and the Internet, it was only a matter of time before Evans resigned, and he did just that on Sunday. A few of the better details to surface in the report included the always popular "Do you know who I am/I'm someone very important" line, his lady friend's (who is not his wife) arrest for disorderly conduct/not doing what the cop told her to do and most amazingly, when Evans was pulled over, he had a pair of red panties between his legs. When asked why he would have such an item of clothing there, he replied (and with a straight face, mind you), "She took them off and I held them because I was just trying to get her home."
Well, I'm satisfied. I think that clears everything right up. A few ideas for future consideration by Evans: One, stay clear of bars and restaurants with women who are not the wife. Two, get better at thinking on feet when pressed with a tough question. And three, if going to be out with a lady friend, have her do the driving while you do the drankin'.
Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe wags his finger at Tommy Tuberville
Tuberville recently spoke about the impending collapse of the Big 12, why the conference sucks and how much better life was in the SEC (minus the eight brutal conference games). While everything Tuberville said was 1,000% correct, Dan Beebe was hurt and offended, but mostly hurt. I can't verify this, but I believe he called his buddy Jim Delany of the Big Ten (Twelve) and asked him what the best course of action was. Delany told him that if Beebe sold him Texas, he'd help him out. After consideration, Beebe decided to steal a copy of Mike Slive's reprimand to SEC coaches last spring. It was his first move as commissioner that didn't earn him a double F-minus on the performance scale.
JaMarcus Russell enjoys his Fourth of July with some family time, fireworks and the Purple Drank
Also, bail bondsmen. Russell was arrested at his home in Mobile after police found him to be in possession of a controlled substance, codeine syrup, which is more commonly known to the people as the Purple Drank (If you're familiar with the work of Three 6 Mafia, they mention a good time had by all while drinking the Drank in their song "Sippin' on Some Syrup"). Side effects include laziness, weight gain, incompletions, interceptions, bad decisions, zest for failure and loss of large chunks of straight cash.
Sunday was the first anniversary of Steve McNair's death
One year later and it's still an incredibly sad story, especially when reading about the family members as they continue to deal with the tremendous amount of pain that doesn't seem to be getting any smaller. The Belly of the Beast offers a tribute to Air II that was created by someone with Internet skills, as they took the time to document some of McNair's time on the Reservation at Alcorn State in highlight form.
