So, about those Isaiah Crowell is failing out rumors
We had some commenters here say he'd be gone by the bowl game for grades. And we all heard the persistent rumor regarding his faltering academics. Well, with fall semester over and grades all in and accounted for, chalk that one up to another batch of message board idiots running their mouth.
Georgia coach Mark Richt was pleased to report Monday night that the Bulldogs had no academic casualties after the fall semester and will have every player available to play in next week’s Outback Bowl against Michigan State.
“You kind of expect it, but if it doesn’t (happen), you’re a little disappointed in that,” Richt said “Those guys have done well.”
[Aaron] Murray said having the team intact for the bowl game – and for the most part, healthy – is a relief that allows his team to just focus on the game ahead.
“Everyone’s eligible and ready to go. It gets rid of a lot of distractions. .. We have to worry about practicing and getting ready for the bowl game.”
