Investigate Greg McGarity and the University of Georgia for Recruiting Violations

After this past weeks events with the commitment of Carson Beck, it is time to investigate the University of Georgia's athletic program under the direction of Greg McGarity. A week after naming the University of Florida his leader, Carson Beck took an unexpected 180 and committed to UGA. On the early "National Signing Day" in December, UGA flipped quarterback Dwan Mathis without a visit to UGA. Number one overall recruit Nolan Smith, a defensive end out of IMG Academy, was seen with a $80,000 Mercedes-Benz. Not only have they had the last two number one recruits in football, but just recently Georgia received a commitment from the number one overall basketball recruit Anthony Edwards. With all of these recruits seeming to go their way, a simple explanation is that Georgia is just good at recruiting. However, this fall, Jimbo Fisher of Texas A&M came out and accused UGA of dirty recruiting of quarterback Zach Calzada, accusing Kirby Smart of dirty recruiting. Why does Georgia lose many people to transfers? Why do they keep getting the number one overall recruit? There may be no wrongdoing here, but it is at least worth a look into these events to see if any wrongdoing has been committed in the UGA athletic department. It is for this reason that I am petitioning the NCAA to start an investigation into Greg McGarity and the University of Georgia Athletic Department, as well as looking into the recruiting practices exhibited by Kirby Smart and Tom Crean. With a simple investigation, Georgia could silence the "haters" who try to downplay their extremely successful recruiting these past few years, or we could find out that Georgia has in fact cheated the system. In order to maintain a fair and honest NCAA, it is time for the University of Georgia to be investigated.

Bring Back Slobbering Hog

Bring the Slobbering Hog back to Bud Walton's half court. The Slobbering Hog was a tradition as the painted-on mascot at the half-court of the Arkansas Razorbacks' home court of Bud Walton Arena. Parents & grandparents remembered Slobbering Hog from the old Barnhill Arena days and it was one of the things that was transferred to Bud Walton Arena in 1993 when it opened. Everyone loved Slobbering Hog, except one man. Jeff Long was the athletic director (AD) of the Arkansas Razorbacks from the beginning of 2008 until November 15, 2017, and he hated Slobbering Hog. He felt as if Slobbering Hog was more loved than he was by Arkansas Razorback fans which made him extremely jealous. So, he hatched a plan to remove the beloved icon from the floor of Bud Walton Arena, and was able to do so against the pleas of thousands of Hog fans and the crying of little children everywhere. Now that Jeff Long is no longer in charge of the Arkansas Razorbacks, Slobbering Hog needs to be returned to his rightful place at center court of Bud Walton Arena. The current Arkansas AD, Hunter Yurachek, needs to make returning Slobbering Hog to the center court a top priority! The 25th anniversary of the 1994 NCAA National Championship by the Arkansas Razorbacks would be the perfect time to return to return Slobbering Hog to his rightful place in center court. Luckily Slobbering Hog is getting some more media attention due to the anniversary!https://katv.com/sports/hog-central/throwback-uniforms-slobbering-hog-part-of-25th-anniversary-celebration-of-1994-title
