09:47 AM ET 02.11 | If Georgia football player Sanders Commings faces any disciplinary action over the incident that resulted in his arrest last month, it likely will come from the school before he goes before a Clarke County judge. Two other defensive backs recently dismissed by Georgia are headed to junior colleges with the hopes of possibly returning to play for the Bulldogs in 2013. People with direct knowledge of the situation confirmed to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the players were dismissed for stealing cash from at least one teammate. Nick Marshall enrolled at Garden City (Kan.) Community College and Chris Sanders at Georgia Military College in Milledgeville, according to their respective high school coaches.

I just don't believe these type of character flaws are not known prior to their collegiate careers. One of three things is happening. The HS coaches are concealing them from the college recruiters. If the HS coaches are honest with the recruiters, then the colleges are willing to take them anyway because they are so talented. Or the colleges believe they can turn them around and improve their behaviors and character. Only the last one is acceptable and honorable IMHO.

How unfortunate for Cummings but ... that kind of stuff should be anticipated when you step out on your girlfriend and go bar hopping.

As for Marshall and Sanders ... stealing cash from a teammate? Once you lose the trust of your teammates why would they want you back?

Reminds of of the old adage explaining why there are so many divorces today.

1. Man marries the woman because he thinks she will never change.

2. Woman marries the man thinking she can change him.

Neither is true. LOL

I guess that would be better than another story about Big 10 molestation.

Another blatant case of a head coach looking the other way for the sake of success.

Richt cannot be serious. Stealing from a teammate HAS to be a permanent bye-bye offense.

Or trading tats for jerseys, having your starting QB driving a different sports car every few months and making $20,000 to $40,000 from autographed memorabilia.

If the college coaches (even SEC and B1G coaches) continue to do the right thing (e.g. dismissal from the team and ejection from the university for egregious infractions), then we will continue to have CFB.

Now, if it turns out to be "Go to the JUCO, kid. I've got commitments that I want and can use the roster room. You do well at the JUCO, and I've got a need for [your position] in the next couple of years. Keep your nose clean, and we can bring you back in," then, I'll bathe in the cynicism and rinse myself clean of any vestiges of innocent fandom.

Weed that came from Mexico, through New Mexico, your backyard?
