NCAA investigators now have Georgia on their mind

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.

    Todd France, Joel Segal and Drew Rosenstein have been doing this for years and will NEVER be caught.

    if Vanderbilt becomes a target for NCAA investigation, I’m just gonna surmise every college in America is dirty

    Xacvol,
    You really think Kiffin is ratting out SEC teams? You think he went to Canada and sent an anonymous letter to UF after taking pictures of Pouncey with a runner. Or maybe he hacked the Twitter account of the player from UNC and posted about him being at an agents party in Miami. Obviously Kiffin knew he was good friends with kid from USCjr so this would get another school in trouble.

    @ SoFlaTrojan
    Stop on the Pouncey stuff!!! He denied it, his family denied it and there is “ZERO” evidence so what happened to the innocent until proven guilty notion? Give the kid a break.
    The other thing I don’t understand is WHY would a VOL fan be bitter? Kiffin leaving was the best thing that happened to them….3 of Kif’s recruits were arrested and what’s left isn’t much.
    A 5-7 season is as good as it will get in ole Rocky Top this yr…….

    This is the beginning of a disaster but I don’t think SEC schools are the only ones involved. If the South Beach party is what is feeding this fire then I’m almost certain there will be other schools involved. We have great players all over the country and I don’t see them throwing this type of extravaganza just to cater to SEC schools.
    Question is, who leaked the party list?? When the story about the UNC player broke they said it was because he put a comment on his Tweeter page that made reference to the party which was also how the SC player got tagged. It is going to be interesting to see if there are photos that will place all these guys there or are they going off hearsay and travel records only.

    @Blitz4848:
    Now now lets not retire the ol’ blue tick hound just yet! From what I’ve read about their new coach he seems to be welcome to the fold of the SEC by most of its coaches. I don’t know yet though if thats because of his coaching skills or their just so glad to be rid of Kiffen that anyone with a bit of experience will do at this point.
    When all is said and done though I have to pull for the SEC and I truly hope that given their situation right now that USC doesn’t regret taking Kiffen, I hope for their sake he doesn’t make the situation worse.

    @ Donna–Dooley will do well but the cupboard is “bear” or for your mind “bare”….
    New qb, 5 new ol and holes everywhere…will take time for him to right the ship. I too root for all SEC teams when playing OOC games. True SEC fans are loyal to the entire conference. Given all that Tennessee is just going to have a down season for VOL fans–I honestly believe they will NOT reach
    6-6 & bowl qualify…….Hope u are still wearing that blue & orange string under that little red dress!!!

    Blitz,
    I was responding to Xacvol. There were some rumors circulating that Kiffin turned in a bunch of schools in the SEC to get the sanctions against USC reduced. I have know idea who started the rumor but I do know some SC fans jumped on it and added some more details to the rumor to keep it going. But if you look at the facts even a brilliant mind like Lane Kiffin could not put this together.
