Will They Or Won’t They? UGA Player’s Tweet Raises Questions About Who’ll Play Saturday

Before the season even kicked off, it was reported far and wide — though never confirmed officially — that Georgia would be without the services of starting safety Bacarri Rambo and starting linebacker Alec Ogletree for the first four games of the year due to suspensions.

With four games now in the books, most expect Rambo and Ogletree to be back in action when Tennessee visits Athens for a CBS affair on Saturday.  Mark Richt is keeping mum in an attempt to keep the Vol coaching staff guessing, apparently.  But Chip Towers of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution felt strongly enough about the return of the duo to write the following yesterday afternoon:

 

“While no one is still coming right out and saying as much, we know from outside testimony, school policies, indirect hints and good old-fashioned horse sense that star linebacker Alec Ogletree and All-American free safety Bacarri Rambo are returning from four-game suspensions this week.”

 

Perhaps Towers feels comfortable writing that because Alec Ogletree’s twin brother — UGA fullback Alexander Ogletree — tweeted last Saturday that his brother and Rambo would be back and “on a mission” starting with practice this past Monday.

But just to keep things interesting, Rambo used his own Twitter account yesterday to muddy the water once more:

UGA’s Rambo Suspended Four Games For Second Drug Issue

Georgia safety Bacarri Rambo was suspended from the Bulldogs’ season-opener against Boise State last fall.  Now there’s new word on the suspension he’s been handed for this fall.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports that Rambo will be given a four-game punishment “as a result of a second violation of the UGA athletics department’s official” drug policy.

His high school coach has confirmed the situation saying, “He’s real down about it.”

Down, huh?  Well, that’s usually what happens right after a high.

(Rimshot.)  I’ll be here all week!
