ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Police in Athens say they will increase patrols of University of Georgia football players' homes while the athletes are out of town for away games.
Georgia linebacker Christian Robinson says he returned from the Bulldogs' lopsided loss at South Carolina on Saturday night to find a house he shares with quarterback Aaron Murray "egged and rolled." Robinson, a senior, concluded the toilet paper and eggs on the house were a result of the loss.
The Athens Banner-Herald reports that Athens-Clarke County police will conduct "house checks" of the residence whenever the Bulldogs are out of town for a game.
Georgia (5-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) has a week off before playing at Kentucky on Oct. 20.
