UGA Contacts SEC, NCAA About Jarvis Jones, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

The Georgia Bulldogs have notified both the SEC and NCAA about the allegations raised against incoming student-athletes Jarvis Jones and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. 

Certain illiterates have haw-hawed about Georgia waiting until the dirty secret was out to tell the authorities about the issue, but think about it. Jones was a USC Trojans commit in 2009. What incentive would Mark Richt have to investigate the AAU basketball comings and goings of a Southern Cal football player?

Likewise, UGA basketball coach Mark Fox says he had no idea about potentially shady-ish benefits reportedly accepted by Caldwell-Pope's family, but that he intends to cooperate throughout the investigation process. Obviously Fox should be sure to audit the cell phone bills of each recruit's entire immediate family, so as to avoid any more "thUGA!" situations such as this one.
