All, I am not trying to be funny or provide a facetious undertone by this post - I truly do not understand the rules and am reaching out to our Community for perspective: Georgia recently indefinitely suspended its lead running back Washaun Ealey for disciplinary reasons (CLICK HERE). I applaud Mark Richt for instilling accountability into his team; however, the reason he was disciplined was because he missed a "punishment run."
Presumably this is common practice at campuses and Coach Carr was famous for his morning stadium stairs runs in the off-season, nonetheless, it seems that our Program has been recently chastised for our interpretation of what constitutes as countable practices hours (both during and off-season) where "punishment runs" would be permissible while GA is not.
Again, not trying to do anything from this post other than get an answer as to why it might be allowed at GA but constitute as reprimand at our Program. Is there something in the rules that I am missing?
Thanks, Go Blue
