Richt Says Tailback Suspensions Weren’t Delayed

Asked today on the SEC teleconference about talk that Georgia might have delayed the suspensions of three tailbacks until after last week’s all-important Florida game, Mark Richt made it clear that that was not the case:


“People who make comments who don’t know probably shouldn’t, quite frankly, because they don’t know.  I’d be able to prove 100% that they’re wrong, but I’m not going to spend the time doing that.  The bottom line is we have rules and we follow them to the T.  We’ve got the utmost integrity in how we go about our business.  That’s how we’ve tried to build this program since the day I got here and we’re not going to change for any reason.”


Isaiah Crowell, Ken Malcome and Carlton Thomas will all miss Saturday’s game with New Mexico State after reportedly failing a drug test last week.

I seem to remember another coach splitting up suspensions so they weren't all for the same game. Yet this is an issue because ...there's suspicion but no evidence of anything...that wouldn't violate any rules even if it were true. Let's go back to allowing players who threaten to kill their girlfriends. Or ignoring players who get to live in luxury $200 hotels for $19 a night. Or Cam. Or suspending Garcia from "practice" five times and considering that a punishment. Get over yourselves.

I don't have a dog in this race but a more this begs a more obvious question. If you suspect or will do a drug test on players, why do it before the New Mexico St. game as oppose to a more competitive opponent. Does Georgia and other teams in the SEC schedule their random drug test before games against the weakest opponent. Just Curious

I'm missing your point emo. Again, even if they did hide or delay the results, and I am not saying they did. Who thinks he would come out and say, "yes, we delayed the results because we had to win this game".

You're right - people who act holier than thou need to make sure their own backyard is cleaned up first.

Statesman, if I'm not mistaken, random drug tests are scheduled by the NCAA. In this case, I think I read that it was "for cause" drug test meaning that someone in the administration was acting on rumors or suspicions. You can't disprove a negative but this apparently occurred the week before Florida with the lab results taking 5-7 days to process which brings us to the suspension for this weekend.

He would likely be much more evasive in answering the question. Same with McGarity. They were both very direct and forthright. Coach Richt also has a ten year coaching tenure with no known incidents of duplicitous or unethical behavior. There's no reason not to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Warringeagle, if he were coaching Auburn he wouldn't say anything because Auburn doesn't suspend after the first failed test. When every SEC school suspends after one failure talk smack then. UK fans you can go ahead and talk.

Auburn doesn't suspend after the first failed drug test? I seem to recall two players that were suspended earlier this year and a certain player that was suspended last year and eventually kicked off the team. If there is any coach that lets his players skate by repeatedly its definately Mark Richt.

Bill, please try to know what you're talking about before spouting off.
