    Finally. Too bad Georgia can't give him those years -- or his chance at playing college football -- back. Wright Thompson must be happily downing a gin & tonic or two now. Well deserved, too.

    Does the chotchnozzle Attorney General have any further legal recourse, or is this it?

    The article said this was it. Even quoted the DA saying as much.

    "A spokesman for Georgia Attorney General Thurbert E. Baker said there will be no further appeals.

    "'I respectfully acknowledge the Court's authority to grant the relief that they have crafted in this case,' Baker said."

    Surely some member of the NAIA will give him a second chance, given the sheer volume of rightfully-accused college athletes who get second chances.

    Folks, this is the problem with mandatory sentencing laws. They make good campaign promises for politicians who like to talk about how tough they are on crime but every once in a while, a situation like this comes up, a situation I'm sure even the people who drafted the law would agree was not what they had in mind when they wrote it.

    If I ever get another cat, I'm going to name him "Thurbert."
