UGA kicker charged with drunk boating

It’s been an eventful — and drunkenly weird — last few days for kicking specialists in the SEC.

Over the weekend, a walk-on Florida punter was charged with driving under the influence after blowing through a stop sign while riding his scooter.  A couple of days later, word has surfaced that another SEC East kicker has found himself with a non-traditional drunk-driving rap.

According to the Eatonton Messenger, Georgia placekicker Marshall Morgan was arrested over the weekend and charged with boating under the influence.  The arrest was made at Lake Sinclair by Georgia Department of Natural Resources rangers.

Helicopter surveillance of the lake spotted “an individual operating a watercraft towing two inner tubes without a spotter, which is a violation of Georgia boating regulations.”

The 19-year-old Morgan admitted to drinking and submitted to a field sobriety test.  In addition to the drunk-boating charge, Morgan was charged with towing a skier without an observer onboard.

Head coach Mark Richt is aware of the situation, an UGA official told the paper.

Last year as a freshman, Morgan connected on eight-of-14 field goal attempts and 63-of-67 extra points.  He will presumably enter summer camp as the Bulldogs starting placekicker, although at least a one-game suspension could be in the offing.

    Competition for the annual Vanderjagt award given to “idiot kickers” seems fierce this year.

    I wish the problem with our kicker is that he got caught drinking on a boat….

    Instead our problem is that he misses PATs…. a lot of them…. He cost us the LSU game….

    Hell, that’s just a slap on the wrist in the SEC.
