Twitter has handed down plenty of odd account suspensions over the years to everyone from Deadspin and SB Nation to Jim Weber to Rob Friedman (@PitchingNinja), but Saturday saw one of the strangest yet. The University of Georgia Bulldogs’ football team’s official, verified account @FootballUGA was suspended early Saturday morning, the day of their spring game, and was still showing that message Saturday night at 11 p.m. Eastern. And that led to plenty of jokes about the many, many past incidents of Georgia football players getting in offseason trouble:

Because it’s the off-season and it’s Georgia football. Everyone gets suspended. https://t.co/1h1S1aN8kg

The Georgia football Twitter account is suspended again.
Miami coach Mark Richt has lost control of the Georgia Twitter account.

Georgia football's Twitter account getting suspended for an offseason transgression is very on-brand.

This isn’t the first time Georgia’s football Twitter account has been suspended, as they (along with Missouri, Texas and South Florida) drew a suspension around February’s national signing day this year, possibly over a Digital Millennium Copyright Takedown request over music featured in their tweets. And that may be the issue again this time. But it’s pretty funny to see that happen to them again on one of the biggest offseason days for the program, especially given Georgia’s history of offseason disciplinary issues. At least it wasn’t a player getting into trouble this time?
