A.J. release

According to Chuck Oliver A.J. Green is to be released to play in 48 hours. It seems the agent in Miami wasn't the issue they were investigating. He had already been cleared on that matter a while ago. Apparently the NCAA was investigating his insurance policy and who paid for it.

Hope he is right. We need A.J. for this weekend.

It' is ridiculous the ncaa would even investigate who payed the insurance deductible. These players risk injury and they deserve to be protected. Of all the things the ncaa can investigate, how a kid gets insurance shouldn't really be any business of the ncaa. Players do dumb things and deserve what they get from the ncaa but getting insurance any way you can when you are a top player is very smart regardless of what the ncaa rule is. The same thing that happened to Decory Bryant could happen to any player.

actually oliver is wrong and has since changed the story. he believes it's with a sale of a jersey which aj has repaid and he will be docked the 1 game he sat out this past weekend. i am not saying he is or isn't correct, but the insurance rumor has been verified to not be true by a few people.

The only thing he was probably right about is that AJ will not have to sit out anymore games. That's all I hope for anyway.

But even in that case why in the #@$%^&! would it take them so long to just give a ruling and be done with it!

I honestly believe that the NCAA took their time due to the simple fact that we were playing a cupcake week one. If we were playing against a formidable team we ould have got word 48 hrs before the game.

So, he doesn't believe the issue is with the sale of the jersey or does he believe there is an issue with the insurance and the jersey. To me, the jersey should be a bigger issue than the insurance although they both sound extremely minor issues that should be resolved after missing at most a one game sit.

The details are out on another site regarding the $$ amount: They had heard Green sold a jersey for $1,000 and he gave back the money. UGA expected to hear back from the ncaa before the game this past weekend and had not. It's very similiar to the ncaa investigation and penalties with the sec championship rings. -- This falls inline with what i heard as well from another source that I talked about in on of the posts above.

I really hope this is the case.

Having AJ this weekend/season sure wouldn't hurt ... (huge understatement).

as i said above the insurance info he tweeted earlier wsa incorrect, but oliver had a later tweet that was correct and I put that information above and i have now verified that with multiple sources the tweet on the jersey issue is correct. jersey issue is exactly the same situation as selling the sec championship rings..

That is completely unprofessional if they are taking their sweet time based on the level of our competion. Even AJ needed the valuable snaps in the game.

Rivals has confirmed it was the sale of a jersey for $1000. Nothing from rivals on wether he would be released. Before this weekend.

Thanks SacFalcFan, appreciate the info you give on this board. I hope you're correct, because I definitely have my hopes up now. Murray to AJ could be a great combo this season.

i hope my sources are correct, but right now there is too much out there from multiple sources for this story not to have legs.
