He might be 40...but is he a man?
We know how Coach Mark Richt handles players who "wanna talk to Samson". He suspends them in sequential order of schedule...in other words, if you're AJ Green and you screw up before the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, you don't play at the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.
Let's see how much sack the 40-year-old-man is willing to put on the chopping block when it comes to dealing with the high expectations of his team. Beating Georgia would set the tone for the rest of their season, losing to Georgia during a so called "rebuilding year" would pigeon-hole them as still being a mediocre Big XII team. Certainly benching his starting TE wouldn't help the winning cause, but as the Good Senator brings to light, waiting for Rice, Houston, or Grambling isn't off the table.
I'm sure I'd be enough of a gentleman to not bring that up when I'm on my 2nd flask of Rebel Yell stumbling through the streets of Stillwater during the pregame tailgate.
