In the words of the EDM LMFAO duo, sorry for the party.
That’s the tone Georgia Southern defensive lineman Gavin Adcock adopted on Monday when he apologized for his pre-game actions ahead of Saturday’s 28-20 loss to Louisiana. Before the match, Adcock could be seen standing on top of the team bus as he made his way through the fans near Allen E. Paulson Stadium. A fan throws a beer at Adcock, and he proceed to blow it to the approval of the spectating crowd.
The day after the loss, Georgia Southern athletic director Jared Benko announced the sacking of head coach Chad Lunsford. On Monday, Benko announced that Adcock had been suspended indefinitely for his actions, prompting Adcock to apologize on Twitter.
“I want to reach out and express my sincere apologies for my senseless actions on the bus last Saturday,” Adcock’s statement read. “… What I did was very selfish and is not what we are here at Georgia Southern. The coaching staff and the institution do not tolerate this type of behavior. For the rest of my time. here I will do everything in my power to reassure my love and commitment to this amazing place! “
A fifth-year senior, Adcock played 12 games with the Eagles last season, making four starts. He didn’t register a tackle in Saturday’s loss, which dropped Georgia Southern to 1-3 this season. While he’s out of action for the foreseeable future, his Stone Cold Steve Austin impression will likely stay on the minds of anyone lucky enough to witness him for some time to come.
