We all know that SEC football is minor league football and with the exception of Vanderbilt going to classes is generally frowned upon if you play big boy football. With that being said it's time for Georgia head coach Mark Richt to stop with the nice guy routine and also stop hiding behind the Christian values umbrella he has surrounded himself with and flat out cut Washaun Ealey.

Right now Ealey is only suspended without pay.

ATHENS — Tailback Washaun Ealey’s future in the Georgia football program appears uncertain.

UGA said today that Ealey remains on the team but would not address accounts that he has been suspended indefinitely from the Bulldogs’ off-season activities.

“I can confirm that Washaun Ealey is still here and still on the team,” Georgia senior associate athletic director Claude Felton said in an e-mail. “That’s all the details I can provide.”

Ealey’s suspension is believed to stem from failing to show up for a disciplinary run last week.

Even before this issue, Georgia coach Mark Richt had raised the possibility of Isaiah Crowell — the prized running back signed last week — starting the season opener against Boise State in the Georgia Dome. Richt also has said that Ken Malcome, who was redshirted as a freshman last season, will contend for playing time at tailback.

There have been intermittent rumors since December that Ealey would consider transferring; he has previously denied that.

This is not Ealey’s first brush with trouble on the Georgia team. He was suspended from last season’s opening game because of an arrest for hit-and-run of a parked vehicle and driving with a suspended license. Richt was particularly upset about that incident because Ealey had assured coaches he would not drive while his license was suspended.

The Georgia football program and coach Richt are on a short leash. UGA football has been subpar the past two seasons and numerous players have either been arrested or suspended. Now it's time for Richt to send a clear message to the rest of the team and kick Ealey out of school. Ealey has clearly broken team and school rules multiple times. He has been given numerous chances to make up for mistakes. College kids will fuck up every once in a while but when you keep giving them second, third, fourth and fifth chances they don't necessarily learn from those mistakes. It has become a habit in Athens for players like Ealey to bend the rules or ignore them all together. The fact that he didn't even bother showing up for a mandatory disciplinary run last week means he doesn't want to follow the rules of Richt and has little to zero respect for the head coach. This has to change immediately.

Cut Ealey. Take his car back and all the cash and women you provided and get his ass out of Athens before he fucks up the program even further.

Damn Matt... kinda rough... WE is actually a good guy, just thinks he's entitled to something and he has to earn it. He's not off the team quite yet so keeping my fingers crossed. We can't afford losing the depth.

He may be a good guy but from his actions he isn't a very good teammate. Richt needs to get rid of the cancer on the team.
