Ellerbe after his INT vs. Boise
The University of Georgia has reached a verdict in the Dannell Ellerbe case. The UGA linebacker was given probation through Nov. 13th and told to complete a class called "Prime for Life," an alcohol education program.
Much to Mike Adams' disappointment, it turns out that Prime for Life is a mixology class where Ellerbe will attempt to become the athletic department's version of Isaac, The Bartender. Remember, football is a team sport, and everyone on the team has a role.
- Nick Jones is the leader.
- Dan Inman is the fighter.
- Quentin Moses is the playmaker.
- Thomas Flowers gets the girls.
- Mudcat Elmore is the driver.
- Martez Milner is good with explosives.
- Tony Taylor tells the jokes.
- Ken Shackleford gets the gravy.
They need someone that knows a Prime for Life drink isn't Jim Beam; it's Makers Mark. Someone that appreciates the fact that a cocktail properly presented makes more of a visual impact than one dumped into a plastic cup. Someone that understands that ladies don't respond to Spanish Fly as well as they do Hunch Punch. And more importantly, someone who knows which juice to serve with Gin and Juice.
Not so much this.
Dannell Ellerbe upon completion of the Prime for Life classes will be a better teammate and a better friend to the entire Georgia community. For that, the Georgia Sports Blog salutes him!

Ok, seriously. Ellerbe is no where near out of the woods yet. He still has to deal with the Clarke County District Attorney and Mark Richt. Richt will likely wait to see how the case shapes up in court before ruling on playing time penalties.
Luckily, the theft by taking charge will be thrown out because it was his roommate's car. Mudcat Elmore won't push that issue enough for a conviction. Plus, the car he was driving is possessed by a demon. No jury will hold a man accountable for driving a possessed vehicle. It's like a law or something.
The giving false info charge, the DUI and the underage possession charges will be tougher to beat. Thus, he's got some heavy, well-deserved punishment coming from Athens-Clarke County and Richt.
