And The Downward Spiral Begins

Washaun Ealey was arrested early this morning. Hope this isn’t a precursor to how this season will go.

We’ve been fortunate as far as arrests and injuries go thus far, but this one hurts. I’m guessing it’s going to be more than a 1 game deal.

At least we have this and this to make us feel just a tiny bit better. But I have been, and still am, a bigger fan of Ealey than King on the field.

And to think, this morning started out with so much excitement. Happy Friday Dawgs!

    Can you believe this!!!!!!! Call Derrick Dooley …he will swear that he was not there and the car was driven by a bystander from Tech..

  2. 2 Dawgman25 August 27, 2010 at 9:12 am

    Well, this is just great!!! Nerds will post in 1..2..

    Don’t freak out…probably just one game. Misdemeanor traffic violation with no alcohol involved? No way he’s missing the Gamecocks.

    Wow..Surreal..De ja freakin vu. Wake me up when it’s over. Think he was upset at not getting the start? Laughing stock. Can someone help these guys make sure that everything is up to date? Should this be one of the questions? Does the staff do a background check? Would this come up on a background check? There has got to be a way… This is embarrassing.. Got to do better than this …..McGarity???? Deal with this crap!

    hope he can hit the holes better than he can drive

    We hit-and-run this state!

    How many dumb F***s do we have on our team at UGA? I mean seriously? I am about sick of hearing all of the problems with our FB team. Can we please get players who have some common sense?

  8. 9 Ammons August 27, 2010 at 9:33 am

    I knew he shoulda kept his old number. . changing numbers is bad luck. :( Doesn’t seem too big of a deal, just tired of all the negativity. Hard to keep any momentum going. Why do kids feel like they need to drive when they don’t have a license? WHYYYYYYYY?????????????

    Of course, leave it the AJC to have this headline:

    UGA running back arrested in Athens
    Washaun Ealey charged with hit-and-run and driving with a suspended license.

    Yes, he may have “hit and run”, but the headline makes it seem much worse. he clipped a park car in a parking deck, which I don’t think constitutes a typical “hit and run” ie hitting a person.

    So much for major improvements to the character part of the football team…I don’t think its that hard to make D-1 athletes accountable for their actions.

    Yes, suspend him for the exhibition game….that will teach him.

    • 12 Corbindawg August 27, 2010 at 10:09 am

      I don’t think it says as much about his character as it does his intelligence and judgement.

      If he had kicked a knocked out cop over and over again, that is a character issue.

      If he had been with his man-looking mistress with her red panties in his lap, that is a character issue.

      This is just dumb.

  11. 13 stevec August 27, 2010 at 9:48 am

    did he have a pair of red panties in his lap when the cops got to him?

  12. 14 Nerds August 27, 2010 at 9:58 am

    We are just too smart to do this kind of thing. It is unbecoming.

  13. 15 takedowndawg August 27, 2010 at 10:07 am

    Stupid. Probably, panicked. Dumb, but not unforgivable. Suspension, yes, dismissal no. All you techies – gamecocks look at your own past closets, before you bring out your nooses for Ealey. You definitely do not want to play against Ealey now or ever. Provide allll youuur wisdom to youuur coaches, ok?

  14. 16 tech fan August 27, 2010 at 10:28 am

    With this “hit and RUN” charge, this RUN may be his longest run from scrimmage or should I say the longest run from the law.

  15. 17 SanDiegoJacket August 27, 2010 at 10:31 am

    I don’t usually post on UGAG posts, but if I were a UGAG fan I’d be asking when is enough enough. If I were Richt I’d ban all UGAG players from every getting into an automobile until they graduate (which at UGAG means absolutely nothing.) I hate to say it but I’m embarrassed for you. Out of control is the only way to describe the UGAG football program. Let the red panties fly.

    Washaun,
    Are you a Dumb Ass?

  17. 19 kerryb August 27, 2010 at 10:47 am

    What I don’t understand is why are these guys getting arrested for something like this. I’m a law enforcement officer in this state. When officers at my agency have a case like this they would have issued him a citiation for each count to appear in city court. Anything in the state code is an arrestable offense but something like this you would just write citations.

    and the beat does on,,,, when will it ever change at uga?

  19. 21 HowlnWoof August 27, 2010 at 11:44 am

    More evidence that repeated blows to the head cause trauma leading to bizarre behavior. How damn stupid do you have to be to break laws this close to the season?

    I’m kidding about the head trauma, but this much is true: These guys don’t always think like the rest of society. I honestly believe that the part of the brain that keeps most of us from doing things with negative consequences, just does not work as well in combatants and violent athletes. It takes a “special person” to strap on a helmet and run head-on into someone trying to knock their brains out…Just a thought.

    tHIS JUST MEANS WE WILL NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ONE OF OUR rb’S GETTING HURT IN A GLORIFIED SCRIMMAGE.

  22. 24 Chuck UGA August 27, 2010 at 12:57 pm

    We just lost the South Carolina game. No way he isn’t suspended two games. If it is four, we may have also lost the Arkansas game. With a frosh QB and a superior RB (Ealey) not on the field, we are looking at a 2-2 or 9at best) a 3-1 start and another season with no SEC East title. 2011 will be win the SEC East or a change at the top. McGarity won’t have the patience (nor the distractions) Evans had.

  23. 25 Scott August 27, 2010 at 1:12 pm

    And The Downward Spiral Begins???

    This post headline is worse than the guy on the radio saying that Ealey was in a Clarke County PRISON.

    SanDiegoJacket….were you embarassed for Tech when Robert Hall beat the cheeze out of his girlfriend?

  24. 26 DawgByte August 27, 2010 at 1:45 pm

    Downward spiral? Hardly! Does Ealey’s absence hurt? You bet… it meets that King is going to have to carry the load for at least 3 games. With the weapons we have, this news is not a disaster.

  25. 27 Joe Hamilton August 27, 2010 at 3:00 pm

    Hey Sandiego Jacket! Remember me? I wish I could let some panties fly but I went to Tech, so I never learned how to get a peice of a$$.

    kerryb,

    Recently he had failed to appear in court after speeding and vehicle registration charges, and thus had his license suspended.

    THEN he leaves the scene this morning, after hitting a parked vehicle while driving his roommate’s car on a suspended license.

    So you are saying that leaving the scene ON A SUSPENDED LICENSE after not appearing in court is not arrest-worthy?!? Yes I know the original offenses for which he failed to appear are “minor”, but I think a LOT of law enforcement officers would arrest someone here.

    He’s blown off keeping registration current (understandable).
    Then he blew off appearing in court after being cited for that and speeding. NOT easily excusable.
    THEN he LEFT THE SCENE while driving on a suspended license.

    I just don’t see all this something you can sweep under the rug. Obviously plenty of other programs have ignored/minimized punishment for this sort of thing — especially for star players/starters — but several of programs DO discipline when it escalates beyond a single, initial “minor” event. UGA should do that here. If the “win the Fulmer Cup” they will have that much more scrutiny and negative publicity, and downplaying it is not the way to solve the problem.

  27. 29 Skingledawg August 27, 2010 at 4:24 pm

    Are you kidding me ChuckUGA? You really want to place the entire Bulldogs season’s success on Ealey? Does this hurt us? Of course, but in no way does it secure a loss for us. Honestly, I’ll be surprised if its more than a one game suspension considering the lack of severity in all of this. Either way, with or without Ealey- South Carolina will be a good game. Chuck UGA- atleast wait until after the first kick-off before downplaying your “team”.

  28. 30 Wes August 28, 2010 at 11:28 am

    I find it to be a little ironic that if a UGA starter gets into legal trouble he is suspended for 1 game ( which I am sure is why UGA now starts their season with a cupcake on the schedule every year ) but if a backup player gets into legal trouble he is suspended for 6 games or kicked off of the team so a percertion of toughness can be maintained.

  29. 31 v8 cat August 29, 2010 at 1:51 pm

    Be proud UGA. You are off to a winning start to the season. You are tied with Minnesota for the “Fulmer Cup” so one more arrest by the Sat. and you will win it.
