As Nick Parker reports, suspended receiver A.J. Green is slated to miss the next three games on Georgia’s schedule. The University is appealing the suspension in hopes of getting it reduced to two games, meaning he’d only miss South Carolina this Saturday. Last week’s self-imposed sitdown during Louisiana-Lafayette counted to reduce the eventual total by one game.
If the appeal fails, Green will also miss the team’s SEC home opener against Arkansas and a road game against Mississippi State.
Mark Richt says he hopes to hear back on the appeal by some time next week. NCAA appeals process sounds like a bureaucratic memory hole from which no good things can ever crawl, but keep in mind Jeremiah Masoli recently won a very quick appeal. That may have been the NCAA’s good deed for the year, however.
A Tech fan lends his sympathies:
I really really want to see georgie go O-for-AJ the rest of this month
