UGA 5-star RB Isaiah Crowell not on Twitter, shuts down Facebook account

You won't find this person on Facebook or Twitter (AJC photo)

Someone claiming to be Isaiah Crowell started a Twitter account on Tuesday, asking everyone and anyone  for followers, engaging in conversation with other UGA football players, and making profanity-laced comments in the tweets.

The “real” Isaiah Crowell confirmed with the AJC on Tuesday that he has never  been on Twitter and he shut down his Facebook account earlier today.

“No sir, I’ve never been on Twitter; I had a Facebook account but I erased it because it was creating so many problems” Crowell told the AJC. “It’s deleted.”

The coach of the 5-star tailback from Carver-Columbus High School was disappointed about the “fake” Twitter account in Crowell’s name. Crowell signed with Georgia over Alabama and Auburn last February.

“That’s crazy,” Dell McGee said. “I just read some of the comments on there and they are stupid. That’s not Isaiah and I hope you get the word out there that it’s not him.”

I can’t believe that kids Facebook page. That is a disgrace. Will he graduate from High School?

Damn shame for whoever started his twitter. Get a real life and stop living in the world of an 17 year old recruit. Good lord.

His facebook is NOT shut down. But, looking at it, he probably should shut it down.

I think all UGA fans are going to be in for a disappointment with Crowell with off-the-field issues. That is my sad prediction, anyway.

Has all the makings of a big time bust, should’ve come to The Plains where they could’ve turned him into a Top 5 pick.

Don’t get on Russ, he’s right. I’m looking at his fb account right now, so what. He’s got pics of him with Bonner from last weekend, not looking in his right mind. “free Boosie” (Bonner) written on his page. It’s not looking too good for him, he needs to shut it down for real.

I’ll stake my name to that sad prediction, DC Dawg, which is NOT your real name.

I am Russ Richardson, and I’ll tell you what–I am a Dawg, and I want Crowell to succeed. But, judging from the content of Crowell’s facebook, he has the odds stacked against him.

Maybe I am an idiot–but at least I will stake my name to my warning. Crowell–WARNING, can’t have a disrespect for authority over you and make it very far.

It does appear that Crowell’s Facebook page is STILL UP. However, he specifically went out of the way to say he shut it down. THEORIES? 1. Maybe Facebook has a lot of traffic today and it will eventually get to shutting his account. 2. Maybe Crowell shut it down but forgot to “save” at the end of doing it; 3. Maybe Crowell thought he made it “private” to everyone else but him and didn’t (I’ve done that before, by mistake); 4. Maybe Crowell thought Facebook was MySpace and shut down that one instead; 5. Maybe that’s Crowell’s “fake” Facebook account and he has another one — the one he shut down.

Any other theories?

Its a shame the kid can’t even have a Facebook page but all it takes is one idiot. I don’t blame him for taking it down. Its probably the smartest decision under the circumstances.

When is Crowell’s bff Bonner going to give his verbal to the Dawgnation. Before or after he unloads the ipods?

I’m with you Russ, I’m all dawg man but his page is embarrassing. Dawginlex, are you saying that’s not him in all the photos? And all his friends are commenting on an imposters page?

Bonner won’t be recruited by UGA. AU wants him though. The points count toward another Fulmer Cup title

I don’t think you can make your Facebook profile disappear. You can stop using it or responding but I think it is always there.

Bug Zapper, click on the link and see all the pics and comments for yourself. It must be a big conspiracy then if somebody made fake pages for him, D. Bonner, Cootie Harrow and posting from each of them on each others page. I wanna know how a fraud could get all those pics too.

I logged in to Facebook and searched by his name. I did find a page with a photoof a kid in a white football uniform with light blue and red trim. I am guessing that is the one? If so, it is pretty benign. Sorry Russ, even if the page is legit, there is nothing to see there. Move along son, you are in the way now.

I’d bet a decent sum of money that it’s a Tech fan. These clowns will stoop as low as needed to take shots at UGA. They sure as hell can’t do it on the field.

Thanks.

If the guy talked normal and took less pictures where all he is doing is flicking everyone off then he probably wouldn’t have had any problems.

Computers and photos can be doctored by nerds like Russ and no way to look however they want them to look.

It takes an idiot to believe it and I’m not an idiot so I don’t believe it.

by the way, this is the facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001749184644&sk=wall

From what I see the last post on his wall is 24 hours ago. Even though I am a fan of the gold and white, it does no good to trash an 18 year old that hasn’t played a down at UGA.

bottom line is he doesn’t want to use it anymore.

Theory:

Isaiah Crowell is an 18 year old kid and has the right to use facebook just like any of us do. If he has Georgia Tech stalkers, he shouldn’t have to remove his social media life because of them.

Now you know better. What would your daughter say if she knew you were picking fights on-line? LOL Glad she is doing so well in school and that she has your wife’s brains. LOL

It really is his page. It would take too too much time to create all those past posts.
I still can’t believe who kids today talk/type. I can’t understand or read half of what they are saying. That is not a Black or White thing either. Kids just don’t write words or not ones I can understand.

No, I’ll be taking Part 1 out of 3 of my medical boards and don’t plan to travel there prior to that date.

Now that it does seem that his facebook page is still up–Mike, can you contact anyone to let Crowell know it is still up? Because I honestly don’t think it is to his benefit that it is still up.

And I hope that some of the attitudes displayed on his page are just from being young and rash (normal) and not a sign of a deeper problem.

then what would I have to show my employees to prove I was working today? LOL They know I post when I am in the office and a few know my posting name too. Now that is scarier than any Facebook page. I just talk to a few friends on FB and follow Football, Baseball, Basketball, and Volleyball players. My Niece plays high school Volleyball and We are working to get her a scholarship.

DawginLex,

Hate to say it, my good dawg, but I have to go with Russ on this one. Whether the facebook page is Isaiah’s (The Annointed One II) or some imposter’s page, the photo’s and rap schtick does not reflect well on young Isaiah.

As my kid says, “chillax” and take a deepth breath.
