Running backs? We don’t need no stinkin’ running backs.

I swear, this reads like a bad April Fools’ joke.

A trio of Georgia running backs have been suspended for the upcoming game against New Mexico State.

As first reported by ESPN, Dawg Post has confirmed tailbacks Isaiah Crowell, Carlton Thomas and Ken Malcome have been suspended for a violation of team rules.

Malcome’s got a helluva sense of timing, doesn’t he?

I guess this week Georgia will be the team lined up in the five-receiver sets.

UPDATE:  Hmm.  This is kind of interesting.

… There was speculation leading up to the Florida game on Saturday that Crowell was facing a possible suspension, but he played.

Athletic director Greg McGarity said “absolutely not,” this afternoon when asked by The Athens Banner-Herald if discipline was held over until after the Florida game.

“This had nothing to do with the Florida game or anything,” McGarity said. “It was all timing.”

Clap for the Zooker

Check out what the Penn State student section did just before Illinois attempted a game-tying field goal with seconds to go.

Good to see that kind of effort rewarded.

A reader poll for the Dawg in you

When he’s not shilling for UCF, Mike Bianchi has had an epic time piling on the Gators this fall.  All of that bile he’s saved up for Urban Meyer gets a dose of contempt for Charlie Weis tossed in to get you to this.

Thanks for your support.

In the space of two weeks, West Virginia goes from voting in favor of doubling the fee to exit the Big East to suing the conference to leave early.  That’s one helluva spin move, fellas.

Vanderbilt brings out the best in its opponents.

Ridiculous cheap shot from Arkansas’ Marquel Wade here:

If Shawn Williams got popped by the SEC for a half-game suspension, I wonder how long Wade can expect to sit.

UPDATE:  Wade has apologized.

Traffic talk

All I can figure is that the hot seat’s been good for business at GTP.  Last month saw a record number of hits in a month here, more than 420,000.  The site’s had well over a million hits in just the last three months.

I blame Bobo.
