Defensive tackle Gavin Adcock has been suspended indefinitely after he stood on top of one of the famous yellow school buses and chugged a beer prior to Saturday’s game against Louisiana.

Below is a repost of the video first posted to Barstool Southern’s Instagram Reels.

Athletic director Jared Benko addressed the video multiple times during Monday’s press conference.

“That process is working its way through the student code of conduct,” said Benko. “Obviously today is Monday and I just saw the video yesterday, so we’re working through the appropriate processes and steps.”

Former GS football players voiced their disapproval of the situation following the incident. Here are the highlights:

Former fullback William Banks:

Former safety Ironhead Gallon: “We’re not going to disrespect anyone apart of OUR BROTHERHOOD & OUR TRADITIONS.”

Former quarterback Kevin Ellison:

Following the outrage and announcement of the suspension, Adcock published an apology to his Twitter profile: “I want to reach out and express my deepest apology for my foolish actions on the bus this past Saturday,” wrote Adcock. “What I did was very selfish and is not what we are about here at Georgia Southern.”
