“Plaintiff Kevin Mays’s right pinky finger was partially amputated as the subject folding chair wedged against the column. His severed finger shot across the floor. UGA Offensive Line Coach Sam Pittman picked up Plaintiff Kevin Mays’s severed finger from the floor, and it was put on ice.”The complaint also made mention of the fact Kevin Mays’ “pain level on a scale of 1-10 was a 10.”It’s uncertain why Kevin Mays waited to sue Georgia and its chair manufacturer three years after the incident happened, though it’s possible the Mays family may use it in a potential NCAA hardship waiver to appeal for immediate eligibility (Cade Mays, a sophomore in 2019, would have to sit out a season otherwise). That said, he has several reasons for transferring from Georgia to Tennessee: His offensive line coach at Georgia, Sam Pittman, just took over as head coach at Arkansas; Mays, a five-star recruit in the 2018 recruiting class, hails from Knoxville, Tenn.; his younger brother Cooper Mays signed with the Volunteers in December; and his father Kevin Mays was a team captain there in 1994.MORE: Clay Webb sued after alleged role in disturbing bullying incidentAnother facet to Cade Mays’ transfer is the fact his parents filed a civil suit on Dec. 5 against the University of Georgia System Board of Regents and Georgia Athletic Association, among others, after Kevin Mays’ right pinkie was amputated at a 2017 Georgia athletic event which the Mays family was attending.According to the complaint, filed to the Athens-Clarke County State Court: Georgia offensive tackle Cade Mays entered the transfer portal on Wednesday and is reportedly headed to SEC East team Tennessee.The move is curious at first glance, considering Mays played in all 14 of Georgia’s games in 2019, starting 11, at every position along the line. And with fellow linemen Isaiah Wilson, Andrew Thomas and Solomon Kindley declaring for the NFL, he was in prime position to be a leader along the Bulldogs’ offensive front next season.
