Mark Richt Comments On Suspended Isaiah Crowell And Company

Georgia Bulldogs coach Mark Richt commented Tuesday on the suspension of UGA's entire offensive backfield -- or at least starting tailback Isaiah Crowell and backups Carlton Thomas and Ken Malcome. Combined with news of Richard Samuel's ankle surgery, that takes out the Dawgs' top three rushers, plus Malcome.

Richt:

We have certain standards in all that we do and their actions do not reflect the Georgia way. They will serve their suspensions, learn a lesson and I¹m sure be better men for it.    

Crowell has previously endured minor discipline of some sort, sitting out a quarter against the Vanderbilt Commodores. After that game, Richt commented, "Because I love him," when asked why the team's best back wasn't playing. Adoration all around now, apparently!

The joke, of course, is that this all happened just days after the Florida Gators game and in advance of New Mexico State. Expect Mike Bobo to get really, really creative in the fourth quarter, when the Bulldogs are trotting out walk-ons at halfback.
