Georgia head coach Kirby Smart spoke with reporters on Tuesday and talked about running back Trevor Etienne who was arrested over the weekend on four misdemeanor charges, including a DUI. Per On3:

“Before we get to football, I know there’s a lot of interest in the Trevor situation from this past weekend. I would first want to reiterate what I said last week about the kid,” Smart said. “I’ve really enjoyed getting to know him. I think he’s a great kid, great person. We’ve gotten to know his family. He enjoys being coached. He’s a bright kid and we push him hard out there. He really loves the competition, but as we also know, sometimes kids don’t make the best decisions.

“The older you get, sometimes the tougher the consequences are for your mistakes. He’s not going to let this mistake define him. He’s embarrassed, upset and knows he made a mistake. It’s a teaching moment, and we hope he gets better from it … Disappointed in his decision making, but he is a good kid.”

Smart did not provide any additional details on Etienne’s situation.

“I mean, some of it has to play itself out,” Smart said. “We’re still gathering information in terms of reporting things, but some things we know already asking for. Like I said, the university discipline is going to take its course as well as what he has to have consequences for his actions from the team. So both those things will play out as we gather more information.”
Etienne transferred from Florida to Georgia this offseason. He is the younger brother of Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne.

Funny how they’re “men” when things are going well, but when they do something stupid all of a sudden they’re “kids”
