So what's the excuse now?
The last time we highlighted Mark Richt's seemingly arbitrary stance on who gets punished or not for driving violations, we were assured that this had to do with the player who didn't miss playing not being arrested. Vince Vance was arrested Wednesday for driving without a license -- at 22, he still has a learner's permit for reasons passing understanding -- and ...

"It’s not affecting his playing status at all," Richt said. "If he starts, he was going to start, if he doesn’t start, he wasn’t going to start."

Bobby Petrino apologizes.

Difference No. 483 between Phil Fulmer and Lane Kiffin
Even if Fulmer had a Twitter account, he would likely never have heard about Lil Wayne's song, much less tweeted: "a huge shout-out to Lil Wayne for boosting our street cred!" Because that's how Boy Wonder rolls.

The lyrics in question

Smoke weed, talk ---- like Coach Kiffin

I'm sure older UT fans are just thrilled with their head coach's name being that close to a marijuana reference.

You know that big coup that Boy Wonder pulled off by hiring the recruiting coordinator for South Carolina?
In addition to the fact that Kiffin was married to David Reaves' sister...

"As soon as his brother-in-law was announced, I said, 'I know you're going there. You should go there,'" USC coach Steve Spurrier said.

Yeah, he really pulled one off on the Ol' Ball Coach.

That was unfortunate
