Watts Dantzler was not the only Georgia player to have some Spring Break surprises. According to his high-school coach, All-American Georgia safety Bacarri Rambo was suspended for the first four games of the 2012 season for failing a second marijuana test and he failed it due to inadvertently eating a pot-laced brownie while on Spring Break in Florida.
From the Athens Banner-Herald:
“Some kids had them that were staying with him and he said he got high,” Rambo said. “He thought the things had marijuana in them. He sat there a couple of hours and didn’t know what to do. He said he if he turned himself in he’d get a four-game suspension for a second offense.”
“He said he was tested five or six times last year and came back clean,” Ingram said. “He said, ‘Coach, I’m not stupid. I came back to the University of Georgia to be an All-American two years in a row. I could have went in the NFL.’”
Linebacker Alec Ogletree was also suspended for two games, though Rambo will be tougher to replace, especially if the suspension inspires him to enter the NFL’s supplemental draft. Rambo received a third-round grade from the NFL advisory board last winter.
