For those that think Kirby is just Saban 2.0

Contrast Chad Clay's situation with Cam Robinson's situation. I get there is an element of two arrests vs. one (that we know of), but in the grand scheme of things, Clay's two offenses were less 'harmful' to society than Robinson's one two. That is unless you own the property Clay broke or the headphones he allegedly took.

Part of Clay's dismissal is a UGA cultural/policy decision, which I am glad to see is staying in place with the coaching change. I also have no doubt that Kirby made it clear to Clay and Rochester that any further legal issue probably ends with a dismissal. Where the future rubber meets the road is how penalties are meted out for guys that aren't dismissed from the team. It may seem hypocritical, and maybe it is, but if someone is still on the team, I don't see the need to put yourself at a competitive disadvantage vis-à-vis your peers/competitors to prove something.

That goes doubly so for giving media the quietest three months of the football season to talk about it.
