Jordan Jefferson Gets NO Updyke Consideration for a Bar Room Brawl!
Sports and Grits Downtown Athletic Club has completed it's review of the Jordan Jefferson situation down in Baton Rouge. The following is our official statement:
" The Harvey Updyke Award is dedicated to recognizing exceptional SECery. As we have made it very clear from day one there are certain pre-requisites that will accompany this, the most prestigious of SEC awards. In that veinof thought we have reviewed a recent bar fight between members of the LSU Tigers and the general public down in Baton Rouge. We would encourage
all who have a ballet in the Updyke Award to understand that a bar fight or ten is expected of almost any student athlete in the SEC. Therefore, this does not constitute a "Shocks the Senses" moment. However, the fact that Coach Miles was even considering starting Jordan Jefferson at quarterback does result in additional consideration for Miles. It shocks the senses that Miles would even consider costing his very talented team a real shot at the SEC title by starting this Pinkins-esque player at quarterback." ~ CCRider
