Caleb King not expected to play in Liberty Bowl

Barring a late turn of events, Georgia will not have its second-leading rusher when it arrives in Memphis for the Liberty Bowl.

Caleb King has told a source close to him that he is not making the trip because he is academically ineligible. It was not clear whether the issue was related to grades or another matter.

Georgia head coach Mark Richt said after Tuesday's practice that any word on academic issues wouldn’t come until Wednesday. He also wouldn’t comment when asked specifically about King.

“We won’t have the final report until tomorrow, so we’re gonna have to wait,” Richt said.

King has missed four games this year, two because of an ankle injury, and two for a suspension following an arrest, for failure to appear in court on a speeding ticket.

The junior from Norcorss, who started five games, has 430 rushing yards and two touchdowns, and is averaging 5.4 yards per carry.

This guy has been a bust from day one. Hope UGA can recruit some big time guy like a Latimore or a CJ Spiller.

He should be released of his scholarship. That's how the Hope works. No excuse for any athlete to be academically ineligible with the support team they are given. Pathetic.

How has King been spending his time because it sure hasn't been on football or the classroom?
