Jamaree Salyer had a pretty funny interaction between UGA coach Scott Sinclair and Zaxby's.

Jamaree Salyer’s ‘Insane Sauce’ challenge takes a funny turn as UGA strength coach, Zaxby’s get involved

Jamaree Salyer and some of his Georgia football teammates were just trying to enjoy a nice meal at Zaxby’s and have some fun. Unfortunately, Georgia strength and conditioning coach Scott Sinclair is always watching, even when you might be trying to enjoy some wings.

Salyer, along with teammates Trey Blount, Andrew Thomas and Azeez Ojulari, were out at Zaxby’s over the weekend. Salyer posed a challenge to his friends as well as his Twitter followers. Down three boneless buffalo wings drenched in Zaxby’s Insane Sauce. The first person to eat three of the boneless wings with no help from a beverage or dipping sauce —blue cheese or ranch — wins $10. It was a friendly wager amongst friends and teammates.

We don’t end up seeing who wins the challenge, but based on Salyer’s reaction, we can tell that the wings were taking their toll on the participants.

However, that is not where the story ends. Georgia strength and conditioning coach Scott Sinclair took notice of Salyer’s tweet and playfully jabbed the sophomore offensive lineman.

“First of all wings aren’t on your diet Hot or Not,” Sinclair tweeted at Salyer.

Salyer then had a perfect response of his own to Sinclair.

Then the official Zaxby’s account got involved. At first, it made a very specific Georgia reference regarding Salyer’s follow up.

Then it had a new suggestion or challenge. One Sinclair might even agree with.

It suggested putting the Insane Sauce on a Zalad (Zaxby’s version of a salad). Safe to say this should make Sinclair feel a little bit better about what Salyer might be eating.

And Salyer, Thomas and Blount — who were all high school teammates at Pace Academy — all seem willing to participate in the new challenge.

On the football field, Salyer had a very strong spring and helped cement himself as a possible contributor for the Bulldogs during the 2019 season. The nation’s no. 1 offensive guard for the 2018 recruiting cycle spent time working at both right guard and right tackle this spring.

“Up and down,” Smart said of Salyer’s progress during spring practice. “He hasn’t been as consistent as he was early on.  He has to continue to get better.  What I like about Jamaree is he gives you his best effort every day, and he went right tackle today and I think he played some right guard in there as well, rotating around.  But, he has to continue to improve.”

While Salyer may not lock down a starting spot, that shouldn’t be seen as a knock on Salyer. Georgia’s offensive line — highlighted by Thomas at left tackle — might be the best in the country.

Salyer in his teammates will get a chance to showcase their talents on the football field on Aug. 31 when the Bulldogs visit the Vanderbilt Commodores.
