Ty Flournoy-Smith Pulls Off Textbook Bulldog Offseason Caper.

Scott Cunningham

Marc Weiszer of the Banner Herald is reporting that rising sophomore tight end Ty Flournoy-Smith was arrested by university police Friday night on a charge of filing a false police report.

Apparently Flournoy-Smith, like many a college student before him, found himself in need of cash and decided to raise some funds by selling textbooks. So far so good, except for the part where scholarship athletes get textbooks as part of their athletic grant in aid and are therefore required to account for missing books. Because, at some schools, there have been problems with textbook misallocation before. Flournoy-Smith, confronted with explaining why his textbooks were suddenly missing, explained to the folks at the Athletic Association that they'd been "stolen." Which, as anyone who's ever parted with a $300 chemistry textbook in exchange for $30 from the off campus bookstore will tell you, really doesn't feel like much of an exaggeration.

Mark Richt has clearly lost control of textbook distribution. Also, the only way this sort of caper could be more apropo of Athens was if the young man had also sold his scooter helmet, then gotten pulled over on the way home. Ty has probably earned Georgia a point or two in the Fulmer Cup, and I'm guessing a one to two game suspension from Coach Richt. Bummer. Until later . . .
