Richt said Tuesday, when he announced redshirt junior Malik Rosier as the starting quarterback, that the backups handled the competition beautifully and he would be "shocked" if anyone transferred.

Receiver James Robinson and linebacker Ventrell Miller were cited after a University Police officer discovered a baggy of the drug after searching their on-campus housing.
