Georgia kicks three football players off the team.

It seems that Georgia head football coach Mark Richt can't get a break. A day after Josh-Harvey Clemons' letter of intent finally reached the fax machine in the Butts-Meare building in Athens, Richt has to turn around and dismiss three freshmen from the Bulldog squad for what's referred to as " a violation of team rules."

The freshmen in question are cornerback Nick Marshall, defensive back Chris Sanders, and  receiver Sanford Seay.

"It’s a privilege to play college football and to be a part of this team and University," said head coach Mark Richt said in a statement. "Along with that privilege comes certain responsibilities.  Mistakes were made and part of our job is helping them learn from mistakes. Going forward, we are committed to assisting them find opportunities where they can continue their education."

The "violation of team rules" apparently include an alleged incident where Marshal and Seay were allegedly involved in the theft of money from a student in an University of Georgia dorm.  There is no word yet on the reasons behind Sanders' dismissal.
