    That's Manny's way of saying I'm not telling you why. Sounds like whatever it is Manny's giving him a chance to fix the problem and will allow him to return. Unless someone tells us who knows first hand, if you can't guess why he's suspended, I can't help you.

    When I hear indefinitely, it usually seems to mean forever.

    I met Hodge briefly once and he seemed like a really nice guy. I hope it is not anything terrible.

    Lol

    Bo probably said something along the lines to many like "you're crazy" (which he is)

    From my experience with him, Manny doesn't like to be contradicted, or put in his place.

    Let few years he's been overshadowed by Roddick, but Manny has a short fuse and could be every bit of the raving idiot Roddick was/is.

    Always do well to remember Roddick was a Bulldog, and where do you think he learned his behavior?

    Best bet, Bo isn't coming back.

    Bernstein was also suspended. That takes it to another level. That news makes me anticipate some sort of unusual scandalous type news next. We'll see.

    Good for Manny. He handled it exactly the way it should have been handled.

    Got to amend my last answer. That means Manny is embarrassed and he wishes the problem would go away quietly.

    Before we start praising Manny as a hero he had no choice but to turn in Bo. Roughly 2 years ago the NCAA circulated to all Division 1 schools that head coaches of all sports could be liable for the actions of assistants. If Manny didn't turn Bo in, he could have been held responsible for this and could have jeopardized his own job. Let's put the brakes on the praise.

    ^^^Never said "hero" (actually quite the contrary, he did his job and in these days of college athletics, that's plenty)--I just said he handled it the way it should have been handled--no place for this at Georgia or any other school (and if he hadn't handled it properly, he should be drummed out).

    Manny Diaz is a first class coach at a first class tennis program, and hias done an excellent job building on Coach Megill's legacy.

    I'm proud of manny for not going the good ol boys path of coverup. We see where those scandals escalate and can be worse for everyone involved.

    He had no choice unless he wanted to go down with the ship. Wonder what this will do for recruiting.

    Not really a fan of Georgia or Manny, but to all who feel the same way, I would caution that we don't want scandals in college tennis. Our sport is not making money. Its primary purpose is to make colleges look good and help alumni feel proud of the old alma mater and donate money. Whatever happened, it does not sound like anyone used PEDs to win more matches than deserved. Those of us rooting for other programs need to compete with Georgia by recruiting and coaching, and not cheer on scandals.

    What a shadow on the sport and the tournament at Athens. Reserving judgment, but I have a bad feeling about this...

    Know the National Championships have been a welcome distraction for the Bulldog program. Anybody heard anything new on the scandal?

    I doubt that these investigations move that quickly.

    Most public schools have very strict rules about revealing personal information. By law they cannot reveal most information about employees

    Hodge was addicted to adderall and was stealing it from Alex Diaz. That's the story I heard from a reliable source

    Unless you heard it from the prosecutor, your info is just a rumor. No need to take it personally. I'm sure there's more info that will come out from the courts.
