08:20 AM ET 07.11 | At the very least, it's a position with which he's familiar. When the decision was made June 29 to boot Isaiah Crowell from the Georgia Bulldogs football team, it made Mark Richt's job more difficult. And that's the case for a few reasons, not the least of which is the fact that Crowell -- fifth overall and the No. 1 back in his ESPN recruiting class -- was, you know, good. But it goes deeper than that. ... [The] numbers suggest there is a recurring discipline breakdown among Richt's teams. From 2008 to 2010, according to Atlanta Journal-Constitution records, there were 26 Bulldogs arrested for various infractions. After things leveled out a bit last year, 2012 has been rough. There have been four arrests this calendar year.

Hmmm, given that they ARE bulldogs wouldn't it be easy just to utilize a leash law?

UGa players ain't any better or worse than the rest of 'em when it comes to off the field behavior. They just need lessons on have to not get caught.

In all fairness, giving CMR sschhittte about kicking Crowell to the curb is just wrong. The kid deserved what he got, but I hope he learns something from the experience.

yeah would agree. It was about more than just the gun but certainly that was the last straw

It was probably best (from CMR's perspective, anyway) that IC pulled a superstoopid stunt that justified the boot, and did it fairly early on. Otherwise, his creampuffness and other issues would've drug on into the season, and who knows the crap that may have caused.

+1...if it's gonna happen, it's good to have it in the off season or real early in the season.

But I don't KNOW it for a fact so I have to THINK it. I'm not part of the inner sanctum at UTk. It sure appears he is on the hot seat though. Anyone might have been trying to follow Lame!

For TENN, is the fired coach over/under at 6, 7, or 8 wins this year?

If I was a reader, I would check to see if the article contained mention of another SEC East coach whose job is in more jeopardy than Richt's job is.
