Mark Richt has lost control over drankin’.

Let’s face it, the SEC is getting wasted country.  Everybody’s doing it.

(Texas A&M quarterback Kenny) Hill, who will be a sophomore this season and is competing for the starting quarterback job, was arrested just before 3 a.m. on a public intoxication charge, according to the Bryan-College Station Eagle.

Texas A&M athletic department spokesman Alan Cannon confirmed that Hill is “suspended indefinitely from all athletic activities per athletics department policy.”

According to the Eagle, which obtained the police reports, Hill was arrested at Chimy’s, a College Station restaurant and bar, after being found passed out in front of the establishment. He later posted bail and was released.

His fate is yet to be determined.

Whether or not Hill will be suspended for any playing time in the fall remains to be seen. For now, Hill will be kept out of all athletic activities according to Texas A&M policy…

So, he’ll miss a little spring ball, but his role in the fall will be determined by how much his coach needs him on the field, as opposed to some sort of Michael Adams’ mandate.  Level playing field?  We don’t need no stinkin’ level playing field.

I doubt we’ll ever see his like at Auburn, in other words.

    Good to know the Knoxvillian influence has spread to College Station.

    At least he did not have the keys to Mudcat’s car.

    Back in the day, Cops would have taken the kid home…why is arresting kids for this better?

    Has Herbstreit weighed in on this one yet?

    Back in the day you wouldn’t have gone out “drankin’ ” by your lonesome and someone in your group would have made sure you didn’t wind up passed out in the front of a restaurant.

    Why pick on only Auburn?

    “Automatic indefinite suspension” (oxymoron, I know) is policy at all SEC institutions, except one.

    It means the athletic staff has not surrendered discipline authority and responsibility to someone else.

    Competitive disadvantage is our choice. No one is holding our feet to the fire and we’ve demonstrated we are not interested in removing this handicap anytime soon.

    A players’ union would mean less player punishment at other institutions, not more.

    Hill had better hope to God he didn’t sign any free autographs while he was inebriated. He might miss the first half of the first cupcake!

    How does a union equal less punishment at other schools. Look at nfl and MLB. Not only are the punishments uniform, but they are also pretty strict with actual game time lost. You know, like our policy is.

    I’ll bet he had a helluva hangover..

    He’ll be suspended for every game that starts before 10:00am.
