Two Georgia Bulldogs defenders are in trouble with law enforcement.

Redshirt sophomore linebacker Robert Beal and sophomore defensive end Brenton Cox have been charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

After Tuesday's practice, coach Kirby Smart was upset, "Obviously, I'm extremely disappointed. I've obviously done a poor job with this group of connecting and making sure they listen and understand things."

Beal and Cox are the fifth and sixth players to be charged in the past 33 days.

Coach Smart continued, "Obviously, we have policies and rules in place. These guys violated those policies and rules and they'll serve the punishment they deserve for it. I hate the decisions they made and they've got to learn as young men, that you can't break the rules, you can't break the law. Obviously, our guys have not done a good job with that and that all falls on me and we're going to do a great job of moving forward and trying to get these guys in the right place and make good decisions"
