Georgia starting right tackle Kolton Houston remains ineligible because he again tested positive for a banned substance he took after shoulder surgery to repair a high school injury more than two years ago.
Coach Mark Richt said the Bulldogs will have to go into the season without Houston unless he can pass a drug test. A special exemption requested by Georgia was denied by the NCAA. Houston has not been eligible for nearly two-and-a-half years under the NCAA's purview.
Houston has tested positive for 19-norandrosterone, a performancing-enhancing drug Richt said he is certain Houston isn't taking.
