Yep, that’s right. Yet another SEC school has found themselves getting the stink eye from the NCAA.
While the details are practically non-existent right now, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that Georgia received a call from the NCAA this afternoon requesting permission to send investigators — plural — to Athens to conduct an inquiry.
UGA was told by the NCAA to provide no further information to the media other than acknowledging the NCAA has requested an inquiry.
Georgia becomes the fifth school publicly identified in the last week as having drawn the interest of the NCAA. The first four — North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and Alabama — have conducted or are conducting investigations in conjunction with the NCAA regarding football players’ relationships with player agents and/or their associates.
It doesn’t exactly take a rocket surgeon to surmise that this is in some way related to the previous situations in general, and specifically — with the exception of the Florida case — trips taken by football players to South Beach.
