One More Evil Thought On Richt's "Extra" Rules.
Sports and Grits is a blog dedicated to telling how it is no matter how much you dislike the truth. We are hated and despised by many within the Georgia fan base because of one simple truth....We live in reality and a large number of Dawg fans do not live with us in that reality. This struggle is not new to the world. In fact the struggle between what is and what Hippies call "Utopia" has been going on for centuries.
Now if you are a regular on this blog because you know us to be beacons of the truth then you know the man in the picture above. On the other hand if you are a Disney/PeePee Dawg then do not look directly at the above picture for the greatness of the man may drive you insane.
His name is Niccolo Machiavelli and in 1513 he wrote an Italian, Politically-based, pre-cursor to Sports and Grits. The book he wrote is called The Prince and it is a must read for all Cold Blooded Sausage Makers. In fact it was so baller that the Catholic Church banned the book all together......sound familiar? Well needless to say the Catholic Church took a major hit with the advent of Protestantism and the original Martin Luther's 95 thesis. Hmmmm....I wonder, could those that ban and oppress S&G face a similar fate in the near future? Could they be ruined by a competitor? Hard to say right now but if history repeats itself our work will be considered legendary in the field of SEC Football studies in about 200 years.
Mark Richt is always talking about doing things the right way and the way things are supposed to be. Richt is trying to give guidance to 17-22 year old kids who most likely come from abject poverty, a fatherless home, and a socio-economic background that looks down upon education and considers violating the law as an inevitability in life. Trust me I see it everyday. Here is an example.
Educated and productive members of society, if arrested, will say "I have been charged with ________". Uneducated, unproductive, social leaches, when (not if) arrested, will say "I done caught a charge".
Do you see the difference? They have caught the charge much like one catches a cold. Any attempt to do anything other than sheppard these kids in and out of the University, get the most out of them, and pass them off to the NFL is a waste of time.
"The distance is so great between how we live and how we ought to to live that he who abandons what is done for what ought to be done learns his ruin rather than his preservation; because a man who wants to make a profession of goodness in everything is bound to come to ruin among so many who are not good."~~Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince (1513).
Wow, its like Ol' Niccolo had a crystal ball and was describing Mark Richt and the SEC circa 2012.
