Last year, college football’s king of the quip Steve Spurrier lamented that the South Carolina-Georgia matchup had been moved to later in the season, because you could always count on a Bulldog or two to be suspended early in the year. Now, it seems, Spurrier might have another reason to be dismayed over Georgia’s disciplinary decisions. On Friday, freshman DT John Atkins was arrested for two traffic violations. But, according to the AJC, Atkins won’t miss any playing time. This is likely due to the nature of the violations. Atkins was pulled over for not wearing a seatbelt, and was subsequently arrested because he only has a learner’s permit, and not a full driver’s license. Per the AJC, Mark Richt issued a release regarding Atkins: “I am aware of the situation involving John Atkins, and the discipline will be handled internally,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said in the release. “It will not involve any playing time.” And so, it seems, Atkins won’t be suspended, surely to the chagrin of one Stephen Orr Spurrier. Cheer up, though, Bawcoach, there’s still the whole of the summer for Georgia players to get themselves suspended.
