Bulldogs linebacker says house was egged

 

Georgia linebacker Christian Robinson said on his Twitter account he returned from the Bulldogs’ lopsided loss at South Carolina on Saturday night to find a house he shares with quarterback Aaron Murray “egged and rolled.”

Georgia was No. 5 before the 35-7 loss to South Carolina. The Bulldogs fell to No. 14 in The Associated Press Top 25 on Sunday.

Robinson, a senior, concluded the toilet paper and eggs on the house were a result of the loss.

He posted on his Twitter account “Seems that people turn on you when you’re not perfect. Thought we were in this together.”

Coach Mark Richt says negative feedback from fans is not a surprise. Richt says players in the public spotlight must “be man enough to turn the other cheek.”

 

TEXAS CHRISTIAN: Coach Gary Patterson met Sunday with the school’s chancellor and athletic director about suspended quarterback Casey Pachall.

Patterson said he couldn’t say anything more about Pachall until after some other things got done. He wouldn’t elaborate.

Pachall was indefinitely suspended after being arrested early Thursday on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. That came eight months after the junior quarterback admitted to police that he smoked marijuana and failed a team-administered drug test.

Asked if there was any change in Pachall’s status with the team, Patterson said, “not at this point.”

Redshirt freshman Trevone Boykin threw for 270 yards and had three interceptions Saturday in a 37-23 home loss to Iowa State.

TCU (4-1), which plays Saturday at Baylor, dropped from 15th to out of the latest AP Top 25.

 

NOTRE DAME: The poised play of Everett Golson has coach Brian Kelly pleased with the quarterback’s development heading toward a tough stretch of schedule.

The sophomore quarterback was 17 of 22 for 186 yards and ran for another 51 in a 41-3 victory against Miami on Saturday.

Those numbers won’t set any records, but backed by Notre Dame’s incredibly stingy defense, Golson doesn’t need to. Kelly said Golson “grew up” before a sellout crowd at Chicago’s Soldier Field.

His coming of age comes at just the right time, with 17th-ranked Stanford, BYU and 13th-ranked Oklahoma up next for the 5-0 Irish.

Kelly said Golson clearly benefited from having an off week before Miami.

By Thursday of last week, his knowledge of Miami’s defensive schemes had become clear in practice, Kelly said.

The Irish moved up to No. 7 in the AP Poll.
