Jarvis Jones Declared Eligible To Play, According To Report

Georgia Bulldogs LB Jarvis Jones "has been cleared by the NCAA and SEC and will be eligible to play" according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Chip TowersThe Athens Banner-Herald's Marc Weiszer reports UGA has yet to confirm the report, but agrees with Towers that an official announcement later Tuesday is likely.

Jones' eligibility has been under investigation by the school since a report in the Leder-Enquirer revealed Jones and UGA basketball player Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had received benefits while playing for a Columbus AAU basketball team in 2009, before either was a Georgia student-athlete. Jones was a USC Trojans commit during the time period in question.

Within a day after the report broke, UGA had contacted the SEC and NCAA while looking into the matter, turning over their findings on August 5. 

Jones is expected to compete for plenty of playing time and likely a starting spot.

Washaun Ealey Suspension Confirmed By Mark Richt

Washaun Ealey was suspended by Mark Richt as of Tuesday or so, the program confirmed. That’s not any sort of surprise, as reports had been coming out since Tuesday morning about Ealey’s suspension, but there’s the official word.

No telling what exactly Ealey did to earn the suspension, but his reported failure to run his scheduled “punishment runs” is still the prevailing theory.

Richt on Ealey:

We have certain expectations and standards that apply to all our student-athletes. We expect them to do things the right way, the Georgia way. If Washaun does things the Georgia way, he’ll be back in good standing.

Ealey has said he wants to remain a member of the Georgia Bulldogs, but “is unsure of his future.” That Georgia Southern transfer rumor is still out there after Ealey was seen hanging out at Snooky’s Restaurant in Statesboro with Eagles recruits. If Georgia is still Plan A, Ealey’s got some work to do. And punishment runs to run.

Reports: Boise St. Broncos To Play Georgia Bulldogs In 2011 Chick Fil A Kickoff Game

Rumors about the 2011 Chick Fil A Kickoff Game scheduling the Boise St. Broncos and Georgia Bulldogs have been bubbling all morning, and Scout.com’s Dean Legge is reporting Mark Richt has told UGA players to get ready for the Broncos. Georgia was supposed to make a scheduling announcement later today anyway, and the AJC’s Tim Tucker says that's when they’ll announce the matchup with Boise St.

We’re talking a game against a team that very well could be the defending national champions, a rematch of Georgia’s 2005 domination led by D.J. Shockley, and the second straight year Boise has opened with a cross-country game in a tough opponent’s backyard. If Boise isn’t able to make it to the big kids’ table again this year, it would also be billed as yet another statement game for the Broncos.

This is not what anybody had in mind when Greg McGarity said he’d bring the Florida Gators scheduling model to Athens. But sooner or later Boise's going to lose one of these statement games. Plus they’ll actually lose players this season, including quite possibly junior QB Kellen Moore, instead of returning 23 of 24 starters or whatever as usual — there’s really no better time to schedule Boise. It’s just physics, y’all.

Richt has said he’ll talk about the announcement Monday, delivering the early favorite for quote of the weekend: “Hypothetically, no comment.”
