Four Georgia football players arrested last night, at practice today

ITKThe Atlanta Journal Constitution reported via Twitter that all four of the Georgia players who were arrested last night were in fact in pads and practicing today.

That Mark Richt…he is one disciplinarian.

Starting safety Tray Matthews, along with defensive lineman Jonathan Taylor, outside linebacker James DeLoach and receiver Uriah LeMay were all arrested and charged with theft by deception Monday evening.

ESPN.com is reporting that University of Georgia chief of police Jimmy Williamson said an investigation found that three of the players received double payments for stipend checks of $71.50 issued by the Georgia athletic department.

The players deposited the paper checks through a mobile device and also cashed the checks at a convenience store, according to Williamson.

An interesting twist, Trey Matthews was one of the two Georgia players who failed to bat the Auburn hail mary away, making way for the first of two wing-and-a-prayer plays that made Auburn’s 2013 flash in the pan possible.

I guess he committed theft by deception on that night as well, impersonating an actual, trained defensive back.

    Ironically, the other Georgia player on that deflected pass (Josh Harvey-Clemmons) has already been kicked off the team

    Yeah, it’s hard to live down ‘Butt’ jokes. As for Weagle, that’s not the first time they have advanced their season by playing with someone elses dime. In FSU they ran into a team who refused to pay their way. RTR!

      Bama fans – we claim every victory another team has over Auburn in years when our team doesn’t get the job done because we are full of premidonnas on the field and on the sidelines.

      Enjoy the butthurt.

        I wouldn’t say we ‘claim’ those victories, but don’t get me wrong…

        When I saw your beloved Tigers come up short on the nation’s greatest stage for all to see, failing to bring home a crystal football (like the three we’ve toted the last five years), I was as giddy as a school girl.

        Especially when you JUST KNEW you had it. It, my friend, was PRICELESS. I get warm inside just thinking about it.

        This coming from the fanbase who recently relied on T A&M/ Johnny Football,and was coming up with war Irish shirts before the BCS game to only try and stomach a 3-9 season that was capped with a 49-0 beating of the ages. I will say it again thankyou thankyou thankyou, your lack of short term memory is exactly what the Bama nation wants and the Bama team needs, it is very much appreciated

    Bama ” knew they had it” coming into the Iron Bowl. Auburn took it from them. Bama and bama fans can not say the same about Auburn’s loss. Might want to get that warm feeling checked out. Crimsonshite might have spread his mexican call girls std …..

      You’re suggesting Auburn was the best team in the country?

      Then forget the Iron Bowl. Call it a blowout. 99 to zero, Auburn wins.

      Only it doesn’t matter without the “miracle” at Jordan Hare before Auburn’s mandatory bye-week before the Iron Bowl. See what I mean?

      Missing any one of five field goals wasn’t Auburn’s fault, either.

      Silly, silly Little Brother.

        And Auburn wouldn’t have needed that miracle if the refs had made the right call on Murrays last TD. Karma evened it out.

            Yes it wasn’t a touchdown., and if it wasn’t, it should have been overturned. It was a 4th down play, so it would have been our ball. But it was called one, and you have to play with the hand you are dealt.

            Looked like a TD to me, and the officials, and 398.5 out of the 400 million other people in the country who aren’t Weagles. That makes it official.

            I dunno, I remember the review being very long, I watched the replay again in HD slow-mo, I don’t know how anyone can be so certain it wasn’t a TD, frankly I think it was enough to tell.

            Maybe not enough to stop any one of five missed field goals, but hey, what were we talking about?

          And you dumbasses talk about us making excuses. Bwaa Haww Haww! They woildn’t have needed a miracle if they hadn’t got their asses shit stomped in the second half.

    Good thing they did not loan out any books that the University accidently gave them huh?

    They might get the death penalty from the Big Bad NC Double A if they did that…(X~D)

    What a JOKE…
