Isaiah Crowell on the wrong end of Richt’s boot

Isaiah Crowell AP

Well, that certainly didn’t take long.

Very early this morning, Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell was arrested on three charges, including two involving a weapon that were labeled as felonies.  Less than 14 hours after being booked into jail, he’s now ex-Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell.

In a statement, head coach Mark Richt announced that the sophomore back has been dismissed from the UGA football program.  Also in his statement?  No specific mention of Crowell.

“We have a dedicated and committed group of men who are working hard to prepare for the coming season,” said Richt in a statement. “Our total focus will be directed toward the team and this effort.”

The dismissal ends an up-and-down 16 months for Crowell in Athens since signing with UGA as a five-star recruit last February, highlighted by a team-leading 850 yards rushing as a true freshman and lowlighted by two in-season suspensions as well as today’s final straw for Richt and the program.

    WOW!! I remember when you brought his little English Bulldog puppy stating he was going to be Georgia Bulldog. Now they kick him out. I really hate College Signing Day

    Coach Richt’s big boot on his backside….yep! That is the right move here. Still hope someone gets ahold of this guy with so much talent and straightens him out, just as I posted on the previous story thread. Richt does not normally tolerate this type of behavior. When he gives a second chance and it is squandered…that is usually it…and it was.

    Good example for the rest of the team and good example for other coaches everywhere.

    Hate to see any kid have this happen to him, but Richt set that right precedence here, hopefully he doesn’t turn this into a “Spurrier” and Crowell isn’t “dismissed” multiple times like Garcia was.

    You cannot compare a thug like Crowell to Stephen Garcia. Garcia graduated and lead his team to the Eastern Div Championship. He was never a thug like Crowell or a cheat, thief & liar like Scam Newton. Crowell will most likely end up at Auburn where Chizek will welcome him with open arms. He will fit in well at Auburn, a renegade school if ever there was one

    meet gamecocker, the biggest turd on the internet.
    I’m no Auburn fan, but you sir, are the most annoying person on cft.

    Grow up and get a life.

    That’s what happends…when u say no to michigan..I would of made a MICHIGAN man out of him…

    Your defense of Garcia is correct. He did graduate and is in no way comparable to Crowell. Likewise, Spurrier giving multiple second chances to someone with an alcohol problem, Garcia, is in no way comparable to Crowell’s case.

    However, to then lob uncalled-for grenades at Auburn, Cam Newton, and Gene Chizik is engaging in the exact same sort of low-class non sequitur that you defended Stephen Garcia against.

    Good for Richt! Hoke would have dumped this loser, too. How stupid are these kids today who continue to blow away opportunities for an education and potentially a big paycheck in the NFL. Enjoy your life in jail, Crowell. You better know how to run fast in there….

  10. vtdcfan says: Jun 30, 2012 12:02 AM

    the only thing ga could do… this kid is clearly a douche… hope he dissapears into nothingness, another opportunity squandered by an entitled feeling young A-hole

    sigh..the liberals are having a field day with Crowell. There’s a thing in America called the constitution, and if Richt has a problem with Crowell exercising his right to bear arms, he should move to the soviet union with Nancy Pelosi

  12. woebegong says: Jun 30, 2012 2:25 AM

    Slim Charles,

    Obviously you have a problem understanding the constitution as well. The second amendment gives a citizen the right to bear arms. It odes not give them the right to alter those arms to hide their true identity. I suppose you would feel ok with it, if this gun could somehow be ballistically tied to a crime then. I am a DAWG fan, and even I can’t justify these actions. I am also a republican and pretty conservative so I don’t know how you can tie the actions of the university and the action they have taken to Pelosi. Surely you jest man. UGA is in the south, in case your knowledge of geography matches that of the constitution. Not exactly the liberal bastion of the united states, unless you only consider Atlanta.

  13. Slim Charles says: Jun 30, 2012 11:32 AM

    Sorry wobegong, you’re clearly a RINO. Either you believe in the second amendment or you don’t. No half steps. There’s no reason for having a serial number, the government doesn’t need to track your gun.

  14. handsofsweed says: Jun 30, 2012 11:41 AM

    @ Slim:

    Please explain why someone would need to scratch a serial number off of ANYTHING, let alone a gun?

    If you’re scratching off a serial number off of anything, you’re up to no good.

  15. woebegong says: Jun 30, 2012 11:49 AM

    well Slim,

    Tell ya what. My father was a police officer for 42 years, and I was in the service for 21 years. You might believe there is no reason to be able to track a weapon, but it comes in pretty handy sometimes, in tracking down a weapon used to commit a crime, and with 33,000+ murders in this country each year, I believe it is not asking too much I don’t believe to have that asset available to the policemen in some cases.
    The second amendment to the constitution only guarantees you the right to bear and own arms. It does not guarantee the right to use those weapons to commit a crime. It is also a handy way to insure convicted felons do not purchase the weapon also. I am not even sure I know what the term RINO means, but I am as pro gun as you are I am sure. I just believe that there have to be reasonable restrictions and common sense applied to any rule, amendment or law. If requiring registration of hand guns, which are the single most used weapon in the committing of a felony in the USA, cuts down on one crime or murder, I will gladly support it.

    Am I reading this correctly, he actually got kicked off the team? LMAO

  17. woebegong says: Jun 30, 2012 3:24 PM

    It is a rule at almost every div. 1 school, that a kid charged with a felony is suspended and in the case of UGA, released from the team until the the charges are either dropped, or the kid is not guilty. In the case of Crowell, the decision was made to drop him, due to past instances. He made a million dollar poor decision, and if convicted, he could be looking at 3 years in prison.

    How does it feel to have your very promising football career and possibly millions of dollars slip right through your fingers. You fu*ked up

    Why would any Gamecock fan defend Stephen Garcia? Suspended FIVE times. Thought he was bigger than the team. The guy keyed a car his freshman year. I can forgive public intoxication. But keying a professor’s car…that’s weak.

    Between his multiple suspensions/arrests and the fact that in 2011 lots of fans were calling for his benching, Garcia was awful. What a waste of potential for a Top 5 QB recruit, the guy who should’ve been the best South Carolina QB ever.

    Reminds me of Demetrius Summers in a way. He was also a guy who should’ve done so much but did so little.

    He was an enormous waste of potential. The defense and Lattimore lead that team in 2010.

    I get that you really don’t like Auburn. To me, it seems a little much (Clemson and UGA are the true rivals of USC) but everyone is entitled to their own opinion. You don’t like them, it’s your right.

    Crowell is a thug. Garcia is better, but not THAT much better.

    Slim, extremism is going to ruin this nation. I consider my self a moderate independent. I am a gun owner and have a toter’s permit. Yes, crooks are stupid enough to apply for one. Caught many here in GA for past few years. The id numbers on guns also help law enforcement solve crimes. I beleive and support 2nd amendment, do know my constitution and the context our founding fathers wrote the document. Yes, it is what I do for a living. Teach the constitution. Craziness was not the intent. No, I am not a socialist. Steve Spurier has a loud mouth and is classless in wins and defeats. He has gave Garcia way too many chances until he found a replacement. Comparing Crowell and Garcia is a waste of time. All universities have issues with young folks. Period.
