How much more of this can happen before the blame is pointed at Richt?
Has there been a coach lose his job because of the off-the-field actions of his players?

They are making excuses for him and Crowell already. The 24/7 board is littered with similar threads.
To answer your question: apparently, much more is needed.
I think Crowell is telling the truth. I dons goin
Good for us, really.
As long as CMR stays at the helm, we know exactly what we are getting. I hope nothing runs him away. JMHO. Are we afraid of competition? Of course not. But at the same time, knowing what your going to face isn't so bad either.
Keep CMR -
With the talent in that state every year, my goodness that school could be far better than they currently are. There's a reason others come into GA and get so many talented players.

This is spot on. The state of Georgia has always produced good high school football athletes, but in the last ten years the state is on the verge of passing California for 3rd. I hope Richt stays and a third of that elite talent keeps choosing Alabama.
Skarbinsky said something like how can you blame richt when he is such a strict punisher with suspensions.
Its amazing to me how much people alibi for him. I guess it's because no one is threatened by him.
Crowell's off field actions have nothing to do with CMR. I mean, look at Dee Hart and Dickson , White, Kirkpatrick, McClain etc... but yet people aren't bashing CNS for that. Lay off of CMR because of the off the field issues, really doesn't reflect him IMO.

Being a cheerleader for Georgia's in state rival, the barn, Scarbo surely wants Richt to stay around.
Were Hart and Dickson charged with any crimes? And what crimes were Kirkpatrick and McClain charged with while playing at Bama? I don't remember any of this. TIA.

Perception is reality. Character reflects leadership.
I live in NW GA and I have a former coworker whose brother has some connections to the UGA program. Nothing major, just attends several fund raising events each year, has several season tickets, travels with the team and some boosters to away games and bowl games, etc. I texted my buddy this afternoon to see what his brother was saying/hearing about the whole IC deal. Something interesting came from the ensuing conversation.
He basically said that CMR has recruited and signed some guys over the last few years that he normally would not have due to off-field issues, character/discipline issues, etc. However, because of the growing pressure on him to win and win now to keep his job, he knew he couldn't let the top recruits in the state go elsewhere regardless of whether or not they fit into his style and program, as he knew the boosters would simply look at it as he was letting top recruits get away. He went on to say that these players that CMR has signed, notably IC, would continue to cause problems for him and the program as a whole. He didn't name names, but it definitely made me wonder how much more of these types of issues would continue to happen.
I don't fault Richt for being a "good Christian man," but while that's a great quality to possess, it doesn't always translate to success as a high profile college football coach in the SEC. With his nature to give players multiple chances to change and turn things around, I can't help but wonder if these players that were referred to will ultimately be his downfall. Its definitely ironic, because it sounded like he only recruited them because they'd help him win and save his job, but in the end their off-field actions and distractions to his program may end up costing him his job anyway.
