Finally, some closure to college football’s most pressing offseason story.

Via the Athens Banner-Herald, Georgia kicker Marshall Morgan has pleaded guilty to a pair of misdemeanor charges stemming from his arrest earlier this summer for boating under the influence. He receives 12 months probation, 240 hours of community service and a fine of $1,456.

According to a previous report, helicopter surveillance of Lake Sinclair 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.

Last year as a freshman, Morgan connected on eight-of-14 field goal attempts and 63-of-67 extra points. Bulldogs coach Mark Richt has still not formally announced any punishment or suspension for Morgan.

    Youthful stupidity, but at least it wasn’t an incident involving drugs, or improper money received.

    If open containers in boats are criminalized, the boating industry is doomed.

    Ben,
    There are some web names/user names on this site that are truly distasteful.

    Remember the kid wasn’t 21 years old, the legal drinking age for the state of Georgia.
