Rapper Rico Richie

One thing that’s gratifying about hosting this blog is the little tidbits that people send me now and then (h/t Tatum).  Like this story about former Georgia Tech stalwart Reuben Houston.

A former star defensive back who dealt with a drug case while playing for Georgia Tech is facing new charges.

Reuben Houston, who once starred in the gold and white of a Georgia Tech football uniform and now is an aspiring rapper, sat in a jailhouse hearing room wearing a Fulton County Jail inmate uniform.

Documents say Houston is charged with trafficking marijuana and also faces a pair of gun charges, including possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

When Houston appeared in court, the judge told him he is not authorized to set bond for his case.

Houston’s attorney, Manny Arora, says the studio where several pounds of marijuana were found had four other people in it. When asked exactly how much marijuana police found, Arora said, “The police say 11 pounds, but that’s with all the packaging on it. So once we actually get an actual weight I’m sure it will be a little bit less.”

That’s Chantastic.  After all, this isn’t Houston’s first rodeo.

You have to hope this doesn’t interfere with life after football for him.  He’s got so much going for him these days.

Entertainment lawyer Steve Sidman, who can boast a client list of multi-platinum artists across the musical spectrum, says Houston’s prospects as Rapper Rico Richie have just taken off.

“He has a single called ‘Poppin’ that is doing just that,” Sidman said. “My friend and client has enormous, almost limitless, prospects as a rapper.”

Well, of course.  Doesn’t everyone who matriculated at Georgia Tech?

By the way, it was good to see that the AJ-C was all over this story, wasn’t it?  Er… um… you mean the AJ-C wasn’t all over it?

Georgia – Georgia Tech tickets are Chantastically priced.

That’s right, campers.  You can buy a three-pack including the Georgia game for a hundred bucks.  And considering you have a choice of tickets to the North Carolina, Pitt and Virginia Tech games which you can certainly resell on line to fill out the pack, you ought to be able to come out at the end with a Georgia ticket for a very reasonable price.

If they’re gonna play like Georgia is the home team, they might as well charge like it, too.

“Yea that’s a lie get your facts right.”

My, the AJ-C headline writer for this piece sure took the mellow route.

I can just imagine the story that would be written if a former Georgia player called out the school for lying as he walked out the door.

Damn it, Mick.

In so many ways, this is just wrong.

I knew we should have made the attempt to outbid those insect bastards.

Tuesday morning buffet

Sample exotic dishes from around the world of college football… just kidding.

  • Georgia Southern takes tailgating to the next level. (h/t)
  • When Virginia faced Louisville last season, Greyson Lambert got some tips about Todd Grantham from former Georgia quarterback Parker Welch.
  • I’ve got to admit, if Georgia Tech won the ACC this season and this happened, I’d enjoy it.
  • Mark Richt made a recruit berry, berry happy the other day.
  • Why is Kentucky opposed to satellite camps?
  • And why is Alabama’s quarterback situation any more intriguing than Georgia’s?
  • Richt and Schottenheimer did a good job of tag teaming Georgia’s first commit for the class of 2017, Bailey Hockman.

Cool to the touch

Dennis Dodd throws in the towel and reduces Mark Richt’s hot seat rating to from 1.5 to 1 (on a scale of 5).

Amusingly to everyone not named Mark Bradley, Dodd judges the genius’ seat to be warmer than Richt’s.

“We’re going to get that trophy back in our locker room.”

Unlike some of the fan base, it doesn’t sound like Kolton Houston’s ready to see an end to the Georgia-Georgia Tech series.
