Here the facts:
Houston has never played a down in college. He arrived in Athens early as a freshman following shoulder surgery and tested positive for the anabolic steroid Norandrolone. This failed test for PEDs brought on a one-year suspension, which he served in year one.
The following February, Houston failed a drug test once again for the same exact substance and was immediately ruled permanently ineligible by the NCAA.

It's hard to tell if Richt is losing it because the latest arrest of a Georgia player or something else that's finally made Richt snap.
And yes, someone's already...
I remember a quotation by Rudyard Kipling; “If you can keep your wits about you while all others are losing theirs, and blaming you. . . . the world will be yours and everything in it; what's more, you'll be a man, my son.”
Most quarterbacks don't understand this in today's football. Aaron Murray needs to understand this if he is going to lead the Georgia...

Richt said Dantzler has a more serious edge mentally this year, and he added that Theus may be providing some of the motivation. The 6-6, 309-pound Theus was a top-five tackle prospect nationally according to Rivals.com, Scout.com and ESPN.com.
"John and I have been good friends for three or four years now," Dantzler said. "...
