Tennessee State suspends quarterback facing rape charges

(AP) Tennessee State has suspended quarterback Demry Croft indefinitely following his indictment on rape and sexual battery charges. © AP Photo/Mark HumphreyThe 22-year-old Croft was released from jail Monday on $50,000 bond. He faces six counts of rape and two counts of sexual battery. The indictment against Croft says he engaged in unlawful sexual conduct and sexual penetration on Dec. 1 without the woman's consent. The indictment says force or coercion was used. All eight counts involve the same woman. It was not clear Tuesday whether an attorney was representing Croft.

When you really think about it, only one thing was missing from Georgia State's improbable upset win over Tennessee at Neyland Stadium on Saturday: a little bit of banter from former longtime (12 years) Florida Gators head coach Steve Spurrier.

Shortly after one of his former assistant coaches unseated the Volunteers, the decorated HC delivered a cold-blooded troll job into the hearts of Tennessee and their fans.

"They just thoroughly beat Tennessee,” Spurrier told Andy Staples of The Athletic. “It wasn’t any fluke. There weren’t any fluky plays. They were 26-point underdogs, is that right? Rocky Top might be Rocky Bottom for a week or two until they win one, I guess."

We'll hazard a guess and say that Spurrier was ecstatic for Georgie State boss Shawn Elliott, who served as an offensive line coach, running game adviser, and ultimately a co-offensive coordinator on Spurrier's staffs during his stint with South Carolina.

Before taking the job at Georgia State, Elliott was even named interim head coach of the Gamecocks after Spurrier stepped down in 2015.

Tennessee was shocked at Neyland Stadium by Georgia State, a program that was founded in 2010. (Photo by Silas Walker/Getty Images) The Vols were dismantled 38-30 in their home opener by Georgia State, a program that went 2-10 a year ago, played its first season of college football in 2010 and has only been playing at the FBS level since 2013. Saturday’s win marked Georgia State’s first-ever against a Power Five program and perhaps a new low for a Vols program thought to be trending in the right direction.

Even when Spurrier is LONG removed from competing against the Vols on the gridiron, he still manages to hand the program L's and bring home W's for the Gators.

If that doesn't cement his legend status in Gainesville, we don't know what does.
