What’s it worth to have your ailing quarterback quarantined, via airplane, yet available to play?
In the case of Georgia’s Joe Cox, $6,274.
Check it out here,where the Athens paper reveals the plan to deliver Cox to Stillwater for the OSU game separately from the team, so not to risk the spread of a virus he was battling.
That was the charge of a Georgia aviation company to fly Cox into Stillwater solo on the Friday night before kickoff. He had missed Thursday’s practice with a fever of more than 100 degrees.
Cox started the game and played the whole way, but was not all that impressive after an initial drive to a touchdown — the Dawgs’ lone TD drive.
So the return on the investment is questionable.
