UGA Players In Trouble...Shocker... Two More Suspended, One For DUI...

Really, haven't the folks in Athens had enough with DUI's these days? On the heels of the unceremonious self-destruction of former AD Damon Evans, which began with a DUI stop, comes this.

2 Football players were arrested early Saturday morning and charged with underage alcohol possession and a slew of other misdemeanors. Highlighting the stop, a DUI charge against Sophomore reserve running back Dontavius Jackson.

We bring you more from RIGHT HERE

Really, we don't know what to say here. Both players, Jackson and Tavarres King, a wide receiver were expected to contribute to the team this year.

With practice starting in just a few weeks, it will be interesting to see what exactly, Coach Mark Richt will do with them.

Here's some file tape of what King really should be doing with his time...

SUNDAY UPDATE: Both Jackson and King were suspended by head coach Mark Richt. In Tim Tucker's piece in the AJC, Jackson is to sit out the first half of the season and King is out for the Louisiana-Lafayette game at present.

“I’m disappointed in their decision-making and lack of judgment, and they will both pay a stiff price,” Richt said in a statement. “All our players need to understand that it’s a privilege to be a Bulldog, and their conduct needs to reflect the standards we expect.”
