UGA Hopes Jarvis Jones Investigation Ends Before August Practices

With preseason Georgia Bulldogs practices tentatively scheduled to begin August 2, Seth Emerson reports Mark Richt is hoping to have a little clarity on the status of LB Jarvis Jones by the end of this week. Athletic director Greg McGarity feels the internal investigation into possible favors granted Jones and basketball player Kentavious Caldwell-Pope should wrap up soon, Marc Weiszer reports.

It's also worth noting that McGarity has termed the probe to be an "internal" matter, meaning the NCAA and SEC have not yet gotten involved. It would be for the best  if there's so little to see here that neither governing body felt the need to take a look.

A lot could depend on how Georgia handles whatever it does end up finding. The worst possible case would be playing Jones and then having him declared ineligible months later by the NCAA, which could cost wins or result in probation. As they did during the A.J. Green investigation, UGA has got to play it safe.
