    Around the 7-8 pm hour tonight...i caught the tail end...he was talking about UGA/F$U...

    I could not believe that these guys on SiriusXM College Sports had this baffoon scheduled to comment on college football.

    I called in and talked to the producer who gave me the line: "he's in the college football HOF...two separate issues..." I told him that there are other folks out there who can comment on college football...it's not the sport of curling...amazing...:jeez:

    Here's the link on Donnan's indictment:

    Wow! Donnan and his partner raised more than $81 million from 94 investors.

    Those coaches and players that gave him that kind of money after being told they'll get a 50 to 200% return were stupid. Are you kidding me?

    Yes, he forgot he was not recruiting at UGA anymore: you could win multiple SECs and NCs

    Still why have this loser on your show?

    Donnan in the college HOF? For what? Underachieving at UGa? Hell, might as well induct Ray Goff.

    Wasn't there, but remember it well. Bad day, but one of the very few with SOS vs UGA.

    He won the 1AA National Championship at Marshall. Throw out his first season at UGA and he didn't do a bad job. Got fired after going 8-4. His problem was he lost to Ga Tech his last three years...

    I still don't know why Brindise was held out of that game the week after he managed a win against Auburn on the road. Johnson had a total meltdown and Noah just watched helplessly on the sideline. Was he injured? I don't recall that he was.

    Our main problem was our LB corps was decimated in that game. By the second half we had nobody to stop them.

    That 1997 game was Robert Edwards running all over us.

    Many people accused of his crime are wealthy to start with....just greedy beyond belief.

    Jim Donnan goes from panzi coach to ponzi thief in a few short years. Born loser.
