Why did NCAA wait three years to act? If you follow Georgia Southern or live anywhere near Statesboro, you are probably aware that last week the NCAA announced infractions by Georgia Southern’s football program and the punishment to be handed down as a result. Alex Without getting too detailed, two separate violations were found between 2013 and 2014, both of which involved athletics staff providing improper academic assistance to student-athletes. Georgia Southern self-reported the 2013 incident to the NCAA when the professor discovered the academic dishonesty and came forward with the information. My understanding is that the university employee was fired, the student-athlete was removed from the team and his scholarship was revoked as soon as university administration became aware of the situation. The 2014 incident was a semesterlong pattern that involved a staff member completing extra credit assignments for two football players without the student-athletes’ knowledge. Again, that person was relieved of their duties once their actions were discovered. With all that said, I have a question. Why is Georgia Southern just now being punished in July 2016

for an incident it came forward to the NCAA about almost three years ago? I seriously have to wonder how many people who were employed by Georgia Southern athletics in 2013 are even still there now to accept this punishment. Brown I’m not such a homer to try to say there should be no punishment for such infractions. But 2013 was two coaching staffs ago. I’m not saying Jeff Monken, Willie Fritz or anyone on their staffs is at fault — these were obviously both situations where employees acted on their own to blatantly break the rules. But Georgia Southern has a first-year head coach in Tyson Summers who is inheriting penalties for crimes that occurred when he was defensive coordinator at Central Florida. I don’t have an answer for how these situations should be handled. The university has to be punished somehow, without a doubt. Sure, the athletics director and administration can’t babysit every employee and student-athlete 24 hours a day. And ultimately, these rules were broken by individuals employed by the university, most likely using university resources. But what in the world took so long? I understand that governing bodies like the NCAA just don’t


The Associated Press

Football misconduct gets Georgia Southern 2 years' probation STATESBORO — Georgia Southern was move quickly on things like this. That’s just how it is. But three years? Would it be too much to ask to announce the violations and punishment within a year? I think that’s plenty of time — especially when the university not only cooperates with the investigations, but self-reports the violations to begin with. As it stands, even though Georgia Southern appeared to handle everything the right way once it learned of the misconduct three years ago, bringing this back up sheds a negative light on the university when, as far as I know (and hope), the program now is being run cleanly. I can complain all I want, but all we can do now is move forward. Georgia Southern staff members and student-athletes broke the rules and the university is being punished. And honestly, losing a couple of scholarships, vacating a few wins, losing some official recruiting visits and paying a fine isn’t exactly the program’s death penalty. The Eagles are still eligible for postseason play and it remains to be seen which games will have to be vacated. Hopefully, the 2014 Sun Belt Championship is safe. By the time September rolls around and the Eagles take the field, hopefully this is a distant memory in the minds of most of Eagle Nation. Speaking of, kickoff is less than two months away. And I’m ready.w

put on two years' probation and the football team will lose two scholarships next season after the NCAA ruled three football players received improper academic assistance. The school escaped a postseason ban. The football program will also face a 10 percent reduction in official visits and football evaluations for 2016-17. The school must vacate any victories in which the players participated. But Greg Sankey, chairman of the infractions and commissioner of the Southeastern Conference, said those games had yet to be determined. Sankey said the school self-imposed a $5,000 fine. He added that no member of the coaching staff was subject to penalties. In the first violation, which occurred in fall 2013, a former assistant compliance director gave a flash drive to a player who later enrolled in a course that allowed him to submit an assignment as his own work. "The former assistant director not only violated the NCAA's ethical conduct rule when she provided," Sankey said. "She also failed to cooperate with the NCAA's investigation." The second violation occurred in the fall 2014. Sankey said a former assistant director of student services drafted and submitted 10 extra-credit assignments on behalf of two football players. "She obtained the student-athletes' log-in and passwords and submitted those assignments without the student-athletes' knowledge," Sankey said. Jeff Monken was Georgia Southern's coach in 2013 and Willie Fritz in 2014. Fritz left for Tulane after last season and was replaced by Tyson Summers. The NCAA notified Georgia Southern of its investigation on Aug. 3, 2015.w

Q: I am constantly grinding my teeth. What can be done for during the day to prevent ruining my teeth further? A: There are many causes for grinding one’s teeth. It can be a nervous habit or be caused by malocclusion (teeth not meeting correctly). It can also be a side effect of certain anti-depressants. If you are taking anti-depressants, you might ask your physician if it’s possible to change to one that doesn’t have clenching or grinding as a side effect. It is also possible to have your dentist make a certain type of splint which can be worn during the day and is barely noticeable, which would limit your clenching/grinding. Discuss this problem with your dentist and see what solutions he recommends.

Summer Jam 8 bids farewell to Those Cats

WHEN? Saturday, July 16, 8 p.m.–midnight WHERE? South City Tavern (1830 Chandler Road)

This year's festival will be the sixth — and final — Summer Jam Those Cats has played

MR. ROBOT, from page 3 thing. If you’re expecting someone like Arrow’s Felicity, you’re in for a surprise. Instead, Malek’s character suffers from clinical depression, severe social anxiety and paranoid delusions. It’s an eerie, edgy portrayal of a character archetype that’s often been depicted as comic relief. Elliot regularly takes morphine to avoid being vulnerable to the pain and mental anguish he suffers from his overwhelming loneliness. It’s an interesting contrast of what he’s capable of and who he actually is. Elliot is connected to everyone: He can learn everything about anyone, yet he’s isolated from the world and the people around him. Malek’s captivating performance as Elliot anchors the series

Entertainment who took the reins of Summer Jam last year, hinted that the “friends” billed alongside the headliner are likely some of Those Cats’ past bandmates — but he and Durant both declined to spoil the surprise with too many details. “It’ll be one for the books,” Durant said. “Everyone should make an attempt to be there.” Complementing Those Cats’ sound is A Nickel Bag of Funk, a funk-rock ensemble based out of Savannah. The group has performed alongside Those Cats several times, and through past local performances, Statesboro listeners are likely already familiar with lead singer Leslie Adele, who Bridwell describes as a “vocal powerhouse.” “If you see her sing the Fugees’ ‘Killing Me Softly,’ your life will be changed,” he said. Filling out the set is up-and-coming indie rock band BiRDPERSON, who, having hit the Statesboro scene only last year, will be performing at with a magnetic protagonist you’ve never seen before on TV.

Fourth Wall Breaks and Other Mind-trips The majority of the show is viewed from Elliot’s perspective, and since he is prone to delusions and blackouts, he’s largely an unreliable narrator. Elliot often breaks the fourth wall by “talking” to the viewer, which he views as a side-effect of his deteriorating mental health. The company he aims to take down, E Corp, is perceived in his mind as Evil Corp, which causes every character to say “Evil Corp” instead of “E Corp” within the show. He also blacks out at one point and misses a significant event that affects

WHY? Because it's your last chance to see Those Cats play a show in Statesboro for the foreseeable future. Do you really want to miss that? No.

Summer Jam for the first time. Their poprock, almost punkish sound stands in stark contrast to the funky feel of Those Cats and Nickel Bag of Funk, but the variety is far from a weakness in a musical lineup, and Bridwell is using the opportunity both to give BiRDPERSON more local exposure and to introduce Statesboro audiences to the variety of music in Statesboro’s scene. Aaron Cooler, lead singer for BiRDPERSON, said the band is thrilled to have the opportunity.

multiple characters, leaving both Elliot and the viewer disoriented for a time. There’s a fun guessing game of what’s real and what’s not when watching the show. The number of theories this spawns is on par with Game of Thrones.

Fight Club 2.0 Fight Club, the 1999 film starring Edward Norton and Brad Pitt as disillusioned young men, has had a clear influence on Mr. Robot. It’s basically a television version of the film: Just like Brad Pitt’s Tyler Durden, Mr. Robot’s goal is to have the consumer-debt industry erased. Both have a clear disdain for the rise of materialism and the chase of shallow wants. Mr. Robot just expands and molds these

“We've been fans as long as we've been students here, and when we first started BiRDPERSON one of our major goals was to play a show with Those Cats,” he said. “It's really cool to be able to do it one time before they break up." And fun fact: In past years, Cooler played trombone with Those Cats for a few gigs. The eighth annual Summer Jam will be held at South City Tavern on Saturday, July 16, from 8 p.m. to midnight. Tickets are $5 in advance and slightly more at the door as Statesboro music fans gather to send Those Cats out in style.w

complaints to fit with the rise of new media.

A Creepy American Psycho Subplot A character with a running subplot that we routinely check up on is Tyrell Wellick (Martin Wallström), a high-ranking employee of Evil Corp, a largely amoral corporation prone to shady dealings. Wellick’s character, with his cold, chameleon-like personality, is highly reminiscent of American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman. Wellick, a character who spends his leisure hours paying homeless people to let him beat them up, provides a number of spine-chilling scenes throughout the show.w

For the past seven years, Summer Jam has given local music-lovers a reason to brave the heat and venture out for a night of nonstop music from around the region. The annual music festival is back for an eighth year, but this iteration has a special angle: A farewell tribute to Those Cats, one of Statesboro’s longest-running and best-known bands, which is going on what lead singer Cyril Durant calls an “indefinite hiatus.” The five-man funk and blues outfit has performed in every Summer Jam since their first appearance in 2011, making this show a fitting end to their Statesboro career before their final two performances in Atlanta and Savannah. Billed as Those Cats & Friends, the headlining group is pulling out all of the stops for their final hometown performance. Since the band was founded in 2010, Those Cats has gone through several lineup changes and rotating members. William Bridwell, the founder and owner of Airbound

Boro bids farewell to its coolest cats After two full-length albums, five Summer Jams and six years of writing, performing and touring throughout the Southeast, Those Cats — one of Statesboro’s best-known bands — is taking its final bow. For the time being, at least. “It’s not a ‘goodbye,’ but a ‘see you later’,” said lead singer Cyril Durant, who is calling the break an “indefinite hiatus.” Since beginning as a four-person instrumental band in 2010, the funkand-blues ensemble has gone through several major lineup changes with an ever-evolving sound, having as many as seven players at one time. Throughout the years, though, the band has had a backbone of three original, constant members: guitarist Zac Tilson, bass player Miles Wiggins and drummer Scott Underwood. For some bands, such major upheavals would signal the beginning of the end, but that isn’t why Those Cats is disbanding now; in fact, Underwood said that in-and-out cast of characters in Those Cats’ lineup has been a definite strength. “When I started it, that’s kind of what I wanted it to turn into,” Underwood said. “The name is a very ambiguous, faceless thing. … It becomes a whole slew of people — not just a core group, but a lot of people we still keep in contact with.” The major upheavals facing Those Cats now are not internal lineup changes or in-band strife. Underwood said that the band members current changes are natural consequences of getting older and transitioning away from the college town in which Those Cats began. Durant and Tilson recently got married — one in October of last year and one in November — and relocated to Savannah; and Underwood is preparing to move to Athens, Georgia, with the members of his other music group, The Band Piano., which has been garnering rapid recognition around the state. Between growing commitments, hour-long commutes and the already

difficult challenge of organizing five people’s schedules for practice time, Those Cats was finding it almost impossible to find time to rehearse, let alone book consistent gigs. But rather than let the band dwindle away, Underwood said the band discussed entering their hiatus with a controlled descent. “It fell into place,” Underwood said. “Everybody was at that point to where it made sense to put it on hold.” The members of Those Cats packed their final schedule with many of their favorite haunts, including a last show at Gnat’s Landing, their “second home in Statesboro,” in addition to McLovins in Savannah and Atlanta’s Soul Music Fest, both of which are slotted for the end of July. Their July 16 performance at Summer Jam will be the sixth consecutive Summer Jam they have appeared in — a particularly impressive accomplishment, given that the festival has been running for eight years. With their funky soulful sound, Those Cats have long been carrying the torch of the Statesboro blues, but the band has been more than a constant presence in the local scene: It has been an active participant in shaping that scene, providing inspiration to younger up-and-coming bands and giving musicians a chance to tempo-

In 2011, Those Cats participated in a concert event called “Jam for Chambers,” raising money for a favorite local bartender who had suffered a sudden aneurysm; and in 2013, they held a fundraising concert to raise money for the family of an Eagle, Nick Ward, who was struck and killed by a car while crossing the street. “We like to give back to the people who have given to us, and Statesboro has been a staple for us,” Durant said. “It’s where we got started, and anything we could have done to help out, we were more than willing to do.” More than just giving them a start, Those Cats’ Statesboro fans have poured back into them, too; the band’s first album, Something More Specific (2014), was Kickstarter-funded largely by Boro-based backers. And through it all, Durant said, the

band members’ relationships transcended bandmate status into deeper, genuine relationships. They have been groomsmen in each other’s weddings and supported their respective musical projects. “It’s more like we’re putting the band to rest more than we are our relationships with each other,” Underwood said. So while Those Cats are hanging up their instruments for the time being, there is still a chance that these old friends and veterans of the stage might pop up every now and then for reunion appearances or surprise shows. On the Facebook post listing their final July shows, they have followed “the end” with a conspicuous question mark. “It’s not to say we won’t be playing again,” Durant said, a little coyly. “It just might not be as soon as people would like.”w

Rhythm and brews: Airbound Entertainment introduces Eagle Creek Music Fest entertainment market. “(Eagle Creek Music Fest) is exactly like what we’ve been working toward,” Bridwell said. “When we did David Nail and Corey Smith and John Langston, it was to re-engage with a market of people that had not really had those types of shows come through town over the couple of years before that. These are the style of events that I think could thrive in Statesboro.” The festival will begin at 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 23, starting with a performance by the Tall Paul Band on the outdoor stage. Beer will be available for sale at Eagle Creek Brewing Co. and can be carried outside within the bounds of the perimeter that will be set in the brewery’s parking lot. General admission tickets, entry and beer packages, and a VIP package are all available to purchase in advance and on the day of the show, but there are only 500 tickets available for the event. To purchase yours before the show, visit the Eagle Creek Music Fest Facebook page for a link to the Xorbia ticketing site. General admission is $12 in advance and $17 at the door. For further price breakdowns, see the Eagle Creek Music Fest Facebook page under the "About" section. Bridwell said Eagle Creek Music Fest would not be possible without local sponsors, which include Pladd Dot, BrickHouse Live Productions, DSDA Statesboro and new business Smith & Wasden Clothing Co. — and, of course, the brewery lending its name to the festival. The event also stands as a celebration of Eagle Creek Brewing Co.’s third anniversary. “When you hear the phrase ‘support local,’ Eagle Creek does it just as well as anybody, if not better than everybody,” Bridwell said. Music festivals in Statesboro have come and gone — including A.U.R.A. Fest, Dixie Jam and the Statesboro Music Festival, for example — but Bridwell hopes that the Eagle Creek Music Fest is the first installment of a longstanding tradition in the making.w

WHO'S PLAYING MAIN STAGE LINEUP: BACKUP PLANET — Backup Planet is an experimental funk-rock band based out of Nashville, Tennessee. Playing since 2012, the band’s set list full of original songs — which encompass elements from multiple genres such as funk, blues, jazz and many more — is sure to win over fans in Statesboro. THE BAND PIANO — This Statesboro-bred bluesy rock band should be a Southerner’s favorite; with grungy guitar riffs and playfully wicked lyrics, they’re guaranteed to entertain your ears off. If their 2015 release, “Sick Bones,” is anything to go by, The Band Piano’s performance is sure to be loud and wild. ASHES OF OLD WAYS is joint music collaboration between singersongwriters Dave Britt and Bobby Sutton, both of whom hail from South Carolina. Having decided to tour the Southeast during the summer, they’ve already been picking up traction with their first single, “Living in the Present Tense.” SUMILAN — Sporting an ambient, electro rock sound is Sumilan, an Athens based band with groovy, progressive tracks that’ll leave you tapping your foot and busting a move. Sumilan released a full length album, En Transit, last March. DIRTY UNCLE BOB — Another Statesboro-based band taking the stage is Dirty Uncle Bob, a group of musicians influenced by artists like the Allman Brothers Band, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, and Drive-by Truckers. They’ve given themselves the moniker of being the “dirtiest” blues and rock band around. TALL PAUL BAND — Adding to the list of Statesboro musicians playing is Tall Paul Band. Tall Paul Band performs a set of songs that contain a fluid blend of old-fashion folkies and modern tunes. INDOOR STAGE LINEUP: CHYANN ROSE is a 16 year old musician from Statesboro. Despite her age, Rose has already been making a name for herself as a solid country singer. She was nominated by as a finalist for 2015 Teen Artist of the Year. Rose’s set includes a lively mix of country music, Southern rock and classics from the 50s, 60s and 70s. JORDYN MALLORY is a country singer who is also taking a trip from Tennessee to play in Statesboro. The tracks from her four-track EP alternate between Southern ballads to country-pop. Mallory also auditioned for American Idol Season 11 and ended up reaching the top 98 of the show. COTY JAMES W/ GUITARIST BENJII TAYLOR — Coty James is a Southern crooner. His original tracks, “That Old Truck” and “Till Further Notice” celebrate the fun, playful spirit of country music. Jame’s 2014 track, “Cowboy Casanova” landed him a top 100 single on the Musicrow chart. BRENDAN ROBERTS — With his guitar in hand, Brendan Roberts is always ready to delight and entertain audiences. AUSTIN MEYER, DANIEL NAVARRO, SKYLER SMITH — This trio of Statesboro musicians has bene playing music all across South Georgia. They’re looking forward to stepping up onstage and sharing their passion with everyone else.

In recent years, Summer Jam has been the anchoring musical event during the lull between semesters. In May 2015, Airbound Entertainment added Summer Sessions to the seasonal lineup. Now the music management and event booking agency is adding what might be their biggest event yet: The Eagle Creek Music Fest, an all-day, all-ages outdoor event at Eagle Creek Brewing Company, to be held July 23 from 2–10 p.m. “It’s had better engagement (on social media) than any event we’ve held in probably the last year,” said Willliam Bridwell, the founder and manager of Airbound Entertainment. As of July 7, he said, “about 800 people are engaged or interested in going.” Bridwell has been planning an event of this nature for about six to eight months ago, and joined forces with Eagle Creek and several local sponsors to make the music festival happen. Unlike Summer Jam, Summer Sessions, Boropalooza and other standalone music events, Bridwell wanted to make Eagle Creek Music Fest an outdoor event to appeal to a wider variety of music lovers — that is, audience members who typically avoid the more student-focused bars. The city of Statesboro approved the festival’s outdoor event permit 72 days before the date event organizers had set for the event. Bridwell had to hustle to fill up the time slots for the all-day music festival and finalized the lineup early in July, but despite the time crunch he was able to book 11 — that’s right, 11 — bands and artists for the event. Airbound Entertainment has only been operating since the spring of 2015, but it has quickly carved itself an important niche in the Boro’s music scene. Starting with a spring concert series beginning in March of last year, Bridwell has been working up gradually to bigger events, booking concerts with large country acts such as David Nail, Corey Smith and John Langston to fill what he sees as a significant gap in Statesboro’s

Seeking wilderness at Tallulah Gorge THIS WEEK


EAGLES NEST #1 GSU Sports show

WATCH NEW Every Thursday with Josh Aubrey! Available 24/7 at! Also available on your mobile device!

Brought to you by:

“All of those were gone by eight-thirty this morning,” the smiling park ranger told me, seeming faintly surprised at this fact herself. The park opens at 8 a.m. and it was only 10:30, but all of the passes to hike the gorge floor had been given out. Only 100 hikers are allowed down into the gorge per day and, as hot as it was outside, I didn’t expect them all to be gone. As soon as I stepped outside the doors of the Information Center though, I decided it was better them than me. Even up in the North Georgia mountains, it was a hot day and, unlike the Gorge Floor trail, the trails I would be hiking were comfortably shaded by hardwoods and pines. Tallulah Gorge is nearly 1,000 feet deep and 2 miles long. It is bookended by a dam at each end, allowing the park to host Whitewater Weekends when water is released, usually in April or November. Though it is probably out of range of a day trip from Statesboro at a nearly four-hour drive, Tallulah Gorge State Park is well worth the trip up. Your outdoor adventure can be extended to include a night at one of the park’s 50 campsites. If roughing it really isn’t your style, you can find accommodations in the nearby town of Tallulah Falls. The park also boasts trails for every kind of hiker, ranging from paved nature trails to the more challenging Hurricane Falls or Gorge Floor Trails. A little ambitiously, I chose a route that would take me along both rims of the gorge, crossing the suspension bridge of the Hurricane Falls Trail and back along the top of the Tallulah Falls Dam. The rim trails are pleasant, wellmaintained affairs with a scenic overlook every 30 feet or so. Before long, I was descending into the gorge itself, stopping in the middle of the bridge to admire Hurricane Falls from above. On the other side, however, I realized embarrassingly quickly that I am woefully out of shape and that I probably should consider drinking those eight glasses of water a day, or whatever it is they tell you is healthy. Hurricane Falls Trail is mostly stairs — over 1,000 of

After about 40, I was making a very concerning wheezing noise and had to take a breather, which I disguised by saying, “Oh look, there’s a good view of the waterfall!” Stairs and my questionable fitness aside, the experience was a very enjoyable one. Strategically placed overlooks highlight the five major falls of the gorge, and a cool breeze rose from it at fairly consistent intervals, making the Georgia summer bearable. I even ran into two men who had seen the peregrine falcons that nest on the cliffs. I didn’t see the birds myself, but they were kind enough to show me some pictures they had taken earlier that morning. “They’re late this year,” the older man explained excitedly, “and we think they’re actually still building the nest.” They told me that this is the only recorded nest in the state to exist in the wild, most of the birds choosing instead the easier but more dangerous ledges of Atlanta high rises. That’s kind of telling, I think. It reflects us, in a way. Modern life is fastpaced and designed to make our lives more and more convenient. To find even a bit of wilderness, even tamed wilderness, we have to seek it out, go a little bit out of our way. I’ve found, though, that places like this are usually worth the time it takes to find them.w


Being a good ally Reckoning with privilege is uncomfortable — but necessary

This could be you I may feel like I know it as well as my own, but I was not born into her body. I do not fear public bathrooms, or locker rooms. I do not field constant commentary about my gender presentation, or my body, or my clothing. No one calls me “sir,” not by accident and not out of spite. That is privilege. That is a safety I have taken for granted. It’s hard to admit to my own, innocent ignorance of my loved one’s day-in-day-out. It’s harder still to keep in mind that as I grow, many more such belated epiphanies will come. But that doesn’t mean that my time, attention and indignation do no good, or that my empathy has no place. It just means I’ll try now to speed along the excavation of my own awareness. In the meantime, I will let my love know that from here on out, I’ll be here, standing sentinel, working harder to see.w

Someone you encounter will enlighten you. LEO (July 23–Aug. 22) — You need to keep things in perspective. If you let your emotions dominate, you will end up in a dispute that will hold you back instead of helping you move forward. VIRGO (Aug. 23– Sept. 22) — You'll receive information that will influence a decision you make or change your plans. Don't limit what you can do. Take action and offer hands-on help.

Improve your domestic environment. ARIES (March 21– April 19) — Make a deal. Revisit an old idea or investment in order to find a way to get ahead. Discipline and personal change will mark a new beginning. Discuss your plans for the future. TAURUS (April 20– May 20) — You'll be sensitive to comments made by friends and family.

GEMINI (May 21–June 20) — Some devoted personal time will help you update your appearance and give you a chance to think about the people you choose to surround yourself with.w

Holli Deal Saxon FACEBOOK POLICE? — Don’t call the cops over social media posts. A Bulloch County Sheriff ’s deputy told a Swallowtail Drive couple he wasn’t the Facebook police after the woman demanded he order her husband to delete posts. It seems the man discovered she was unfaithful, so he shared on Facebook conversations she had with other men. She didn’t like it. The deputy told her to take it up with the social media entity, that her husband had not broken any laws.

NOODLE ABUSE — A Cowboy Way man whose family are regular callers to law enforcement sent for sheriff ’s deputies because his adult son threw a pot of spaghetti on the ground after an argument over a driver’s license. The son and his mother claimed the son accidentally dropped the spaghetti. NOISY AND DRUNK — A Little Lotts Creek Apartments man was arrested for public intoxication after his girlfriend called police to report he was “loud and boisterous.”w
