It’s been a wild mid-week news cycle for the Georgia Bulldogs, and Jalen Carter’s arrest is one piece of news we could have done without. 

In the ongoing story of former Georgia Bulldogs defensive star Jalen Carter, the projected first-round draft pick turned himself in to authorities on Wednesday at 11:33 pm and was released a short time later at 11:49 p.m. There are already rumblings from former NFL GMs that this incident raises a “red flag” for Carter in the upcoming NFL Draft.

The Georgia men’s basketball team dropped their home finale to the Florida Gators, 77-67, and have now lost four consecutive games. The Dawgs had been looking at a possible 10-seed in the upcoming SEC Tournament which would have given them a bye on the first day, but the string of losses has moved them into a certain 11-seed, meaning they would face the LSU Tigers on Wednesday, March 8 to open the tournament.
