Isaiah Crowell Arrest Means 'Immediate Suspension,' Says UGA Rulebook

We've yet to hear from Mark Richt on the multiple-felony charges facing star running back Isaiah Crowell, but we do know there's a protocol for Georgia to follow here. According to the UGA Student-Athlete handbook, Crowell must be suspended right away, though the question will be how long he remains suspended and if he even remains a member of the team.

From the AJ-C:

According to the UGA Student-Athlete handbook, a felony arrest means "immediate suspension from athletic competition." A "Comprehensive Action Plan Committee," consisting of UGA athletic administrators and the Faculty Athletics Representative, will then investigate and review the facts and forward a disciplinary recommendation to the athletic director. Recommendations include "dismissal from the team, suspension from competition, reduction in aid and/or cancellation of athletic aid."

Crowell produced 909 yards and six touchdowns in 2011, earning SEC Freshman of the Year honors despite frequent concerns about his off-field endeavors and his nagging injuries. He was both benched and suspended during the season after coming aboard as a heavily hyped five-star freshman.
