  • UGA Suspends Todd Gurley

    No, it's not April 1. More forthcoming it seems....

    Georgia suspends Todd Gurley

    Georgia suspended tailback Todd Gurley from competition indefinitely, according to a news release from UGA.

    The decision stems from an ongoing investigation into an alleged violation of NCAA rules, UGA said.

    “I’m obviously very disappointed,” UGA coach Mark Richt said. “The important thing for our team is to turn all our attention toward preparation for Missouri.”

    Georgia plays at Missouri at noon Saturday.

    In five games this season, Gurley, considered by many one of the leading contenders for the Heisman Trophy, gained 773 yards on 94 carries, an average of 8.2 yards per carry, and has eight rushing touchdowns.

          ughh. The 12 text messages I have received say the speculation/rumor is selling jerseys or signatures.

          ESPN has their programming for the next several days now.

          I guess we'll see how good the freshman Nick Chubb is.

              From ESPN:

              A source told ESPN's Joe Schad that the NCAA investigation centers around whether Gurley was given money for autographs, memorabilia or the use of his likeness. Georgia officials did not reveal the alleged violation.
              Maybe the NCAA will let him pull a Manziel? Nah...

                I don't know all the details and I reserve the right to be wrong. Making money is American. NCAA has to rethink. Richt makes Millions and Gurley makes a few 100's and gets suspended. Making money is not a crime

                    It's Mark R's excuse so he will have someone else to blame of his lack of success at UGA.

                      UGA had no choice in the matter.. A&M had a month or so to "sort out the facts".. I hope this is cleared-up soon and we see him on the field next week. But, that frosh running back (Chub?) looks like he can fill-in pretty well.

                        Latest I have seen is that he signed stuff, but unlike the Johnny football case, the guy who gave him money is shopping the video of him signing stuff. Bad bad news all the way around. Even if they don't find any evidence, they can investigate for weeks and he sits until cleared. I'm betting 4 games like A.J. back by Auburn, but we'll be 2-2 in the next 4 if we're lucky.

                              In a seemingly unrelated story, Arthur Blank's private jet was seen taking off this morning from PDK and appeared to be on a heading towards Athens, GA.

                              All kidding aside; can he just quit college and join the NFL? If I was him, I would! Clearly he is motivated by money, so why not just go pro?
