SacFalcFan Posted September 8, 2010 Share Posted September 8, 2010 NCAA REQUIRES LOSS OF CONTESTS FOR GEORGIA FOOTBALL STUDENT-ATHLETEUniversity of Georgia football student-athlete A.J. Green must miss fourgames as a condition of becoming eligible to play again, according to adecision today by the NCAA student-athlete reinstatement staff.The university declared the student-athlete ineligible for violations ofNCAA agent benefits rules. According to the facts of the case submitted byGeorgia, the student-athlete sold his Independence Bowl game jersey to anindividual who meets the NCAA definition of an agent. Green has repaid the$1,000 value of benefits to charity. According to NCAA rules, an agent isany individual who markets or promotes a student-athlete.During the reinstatement process, the NCAA staff reviews each case on itsown merits based on the specific facts. Staff decisions are made based on anumber of factors including guidelines established by the Committee onStudent-Athlete Reinstatement, the student-athlete¹s responsibility for theviolation, as well as any mitigating factors presented by the university.The university can appeal the decision to the Division I NCAA Committee onStudent-Athlete Reinstatement, an independent committee comprised ofrepresentatives from NCAA member colleges, universities and athleticconferences. This committee can reduce or remove the condition, but itcannot increase the staff-imposed conditions. If appealed, thestudent-athlete remains ineligible until the conclusion of the appealsprocess.*********It's interesting AJ green had 1k in benefits from selling the jersey gets 4 games while dareus took over 1700 bucks from an agent and gets 2 games.
