The charges themselves are pretty serious, but can you image the hue and cry over the thug lifestyle? The message board hysteria over the character issues? Stingtalk?
Can you image the AJC's response?
Of course, it isn't hard to imagine what the student is going (or about to go) through:
“This was just a matter of chance. I’m still gonna love Alabama football. I just want to deal with this case, move on with my life,” Jurgens said. “I just want to get on with my education. I want to continue being happy here. I was happy here before, and I will continue being happy here.”I'm betting he has heard more than one comment from people who are suggesting the whole thing might be better off if it went away.
Speaking of message boards, I'm pretty sure somewhere on a Georgia board, someone is going to post some asinine comment about how we aught to go after that type of player, because, you know, Saban has won all those championships.
