It's come to this?
It appears that Athens-Clarke County Police are going to start heavily patrolling neighborhoods lived in by University of Georgia football players.
The Athens-Banner Herald reports police will do this during away games when the players often return home very late.
And yes, this is due in large part to last weekends incident where starting QB Aaron Murray's house was egged and rolled after UGA got beat by South Carolina 35-7.
This was on top of Murray having (a) an awful game...and (b) finding out his father has cancer.

Okay. We will say here that we know quite a few UGA grads and are friends with many of them. They would never do or condone damaging player homes after a loss.
But they are the civilized ones.
Unfortunately, it seems as though there's a percentage of fans...or alums...or students, who feel compelled to be idiots.
And they do ...

THE WORST OF TIMES
As if getting trounced by South Carolina 35-7 wasn't bad enough for Aaron Murray, the UGA QB also had his home vandalized before finding out his father has cancer.
Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray played one of the worst games of his career Saturday against South Carolina, and perhaps there was a reason besides the Gamecocks' smothering defense.
Murray's father, Dennis, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer prior to the game.

Georgia Bulldogs star quarterback Aaron Murray had one of the worst games in his college football career as his team was blown out by the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday night.

In the end, however, this was nothing in comparison to the rest of the...
Never let it be said that Georgia fans take a bad loss on the chin. Bulldog linebacker Christian Robinson reported on Twitter that the house that he shares with UGA quarterback Aaron Murray was "egged and rolled" following the Dawgs' devastating 35-7 loss to South Carolina.

On Saturday the Georgia Bulldogs took a beating against the South Carolina Gamecocks as they lost 35-7. With the loss, the Bulldogs now no longer control their own destiny in the SEC East. The loss had to be difficult for the players. Apparently, it was difficult for a handful of fans as well.

SEC football is a different animal than most of college football, but that does not give fans an excuse for going too far in wins or losses. Georgia entered Saturday's match up with South Carolina ranked fifth in country but were hardly competitive as the No. 6 Gamecocks handed them a 35-7 shellacking. A road loss to a fellow SEC power should be looked on as forgivable, but a...
